The concept of hell as a place of torment entered Christianity from the Greeks. The Jewish concept of Hades was a sleep in the grave from which only God could wake you up via resurrection at the end of all things.

@Typo42 A Gent of Clare @JamieJones723 @Aztecs, Daleks and Cavemen Direct quote from "The Last Battle" by CS Lewis from the "Chronicles of Narnia" - “It seems, then,” said Tirian, smiling himself, “that the
stable seen from within and the stable seen from without are two
different places.”“Yes,” said the Lord Digory, “Its inside is bigger than its outside.” “Yes,” said Queen Lucy. “In our world too, a stable once had something inside it that was bigger than our whole world.”

@areyoumymummy As a Christian I thought the naked thing was hilarious. It fits with the Papal Mainframe expecting humility. (I'm Protestant BTW - Happy Reformation Day!)

Jesus himself actually told a story utilizing the Greek concept of Hades (parable "The Rich man and Lazarus"). So if a fantasy show like Dr Who wants to show an afterlife then I have no problem with it. Whovians already know of the Matrix on Gallifrey and then there is also the Library Computer, so we have already seen 2 types of afterlife.

My theory: Clara becomes all of the Doctor's bad traits and turns into Missy (after
stealing his Tardis). Then the Doctor has to do something timey-wimey
to save her and undo the damage.

Maybe Danny will do something heroic to make up for the "bad day". Will he end up saving Clara somehow similar to the way River saved the Doctor?

What is it in Doctor Who with making suns (42), planets (Akhaten), moons (this episode), asteroids (Doctor's wife) into living creatures? What makes them alive and sentient? Are they all potentially "alive" or just some of them? Can the Doctor communicate with them like other life forms?

@Heracles @dschram I hadn't considered that it may be a virtual world like the Library or Castrovalva. But it would have to be a pretty sophisticated system using a WiFi type connection through the time vortex which may mean that the TARDIS or some other time capsule is involved. Who would want to gather up the Doctor's mistakes, teaching him a lesson, and refer to him as her boyfriend? I'm leaning towards some kind of Tardis/Clara hybrid with a Moffat loop, rather than a female Master.

The Community Support Officer didn't meet with Missy because she was busy. Also we know that he really died because we saw his blown-off still sizzling limb on the ground so he couldn't have been transported alive any where with limb still intact.

I have wondered what the young Doctor would be crying about but I can think of only 2 reasons:
1. Like Danny/Rupert he lived in a home with other boys, the man and the woman in the barn were probably foster parents, it may be that his biological parents had recently died or it had been a little while and he was still missing them
2. He really wanted to get into the Academy but was afraid that he wouldn't make it and he definitely did not want the alternative which was being a soldier
Or perhaps a combination of both.

The time frame from Clara's point of view confused me. As far as I can figure, to Clara "The Time of the Doctor" all took place for her on Christmas Day with "Deep Breath" possibly being a one day extension, I am assuming the Doctor got her back towards the end of her Christmas break, and now "Into the Dalek" is just 3 weeks later? So what - end of January, beginning of Feb for her? With "Dalek" being just a few minutes of her "real" time.

I find it interesting that it is because the Dalek cannot imagine, or think metaphysically, that it is evil.

To fully appreciate The Time of the Doctor I find that you must read Tales of Trenzalore, then you will feel infinitely more satisfied.

It's not lack of tact Steven Moffat it is other people twisting your words looking for a sensationalistic headline. I've never seen your foot in your mouth just your tongue in your cheek.

The only change that should be made to the theme tune is in the by line - it should state by Rob Grainer and Delia Derbyshire. From the Wikipedia page about the theme tune: Grainer was amazed at the resulting piece of music and when he heard it,
famously asked, "Did I write that?". Derbyshire modestly replied "Most
of it". However the BBC, who wanted to keep members of the Workshop
anonymous, prevented Grainer from getting Derbyshire a co-composer
credit and a share of the royalties.

Totally changing the theme would be the Whovian equivalent of blasphamey
I found the concept of Time Lord art a bit confusing. A painting is a representation of reality but these "paintings" seemed more like frozen moments of time than just mere artistic representations. They seemed more photographic and actually became that which they represented - kinda like the "camera stealing your soul" as it were. But maybe I am over analyzing it.

@Regenerated CattersonActually a destiny paradox caused the Time War not Religion - "The Doctor believed he might have set back the history of the Daleks for a thousand years. (Genesis of the Daleks) This attempt to avert their creation created hostilities by the Daleks towards Time Lords and would eventually lead to war." - from the Tardis Data Core.

The "philosophy/religion" of Dr Who is Whovianism. Click on my avatar and check my profile, my Tumblr blog is the Gospel According to Doctor Who.
@Liana21 you will just have to read or write fan fiction for this unfortunately

I think that him seeing Amelia had an affect on how he appear after regenerating. Doesn't the Twelfth Doctor look like an older Rory (the Roman)?

Notice that Clara had never heard him speak of Amelia was but she certainly knew of a Dr Song. Wonder what kinds of things he told her about River? I find it interesting that he had talked about one and not the other. What do you think that means?
This episode is brilliant - it is not American TV, you must use your imagination, not everything has to be explained. We are seeing most of River's development in reverse. Also, Steven Moffat himself said that most of River and the Doctor's relationship is off screen - it is a family show.
