@Sephora36 I can see what you mean, but at the same time, I think most of the examples you've mentioned were completely undermined by really daft plot twists, deus ex machina, and endings that are always far too happy without being remotely uplifting. A return to the tone of episodes like 'Genesis of the Daleks' and 'Caves of Androzani' would be perfect for Capaldi's Doctor, and a refreshing change from Smith's mostly light-hearted tone.

@The Watchful Guardian At the same time, the Master has always known the Doctor, ever since they were children. It's been implied - and Jon Pertwee even wanted it to be stated outright - that they are actually brothers! So, you'd expect the Master to know if the Doctor was lying about being half-human, and he'd know if the Doctor had done something to trick him into believing it, etc.


Oh, who knows, eh? Who knows...?

@OzGirl Could also explain why The Woman (who we can assume that the Doctor's mother) in 'The End of Time' was so horrified by the idea of war. Her human side gave her the sense, and the logic, to realise that the return of Gallifrey was a terrible, terrible idea...


I only hope that Moffatt has the same sense and logic, and doesn't just bring back Gallifrey at the end of the next series...!!!

@DrunkenDalek For me, it was a little bit like that. I went through 'PLEASE NO!!!' when it was rumoured, 'WHY GOD WHY?!?!?' when it was announced... and then the moment he walked out onto the stage, I thought, "Oh. Actually..."

@GeorgeMachinNZ @mczolly Let's also remember that they originally intended a poster of the spin-off movies to appear in Day of The Doctor. Who knows what the Whoniverse contains, eh? Who knows? Who knows???

He also voiced the Shansheeth in Sarah Jane Adventures. Fantastic actor!
