theory 1 is pretty reundant humans aren't allowed on gallifrey most of the time- remember sarah jane?. Theory two is more likely but evolution would continue to occur at that time. Rassilon was Gallifrey's first leader and he grew up with the tales of the death zone and his tomb. If Rassilon was 100% time lord centuries before the doctor then why would he be any different. My theory is that the doctor's father is known to be an adventurer, we know the doctor has a thing for "earth girls" so maybe his father did but took things one step further if you catch my drift. However his mother would not become a remember of the council if she was not a time lord. Ultimately the best bet is evolution- the doctor is not human but maybe he descends from humans.

@doctorwhomultiverse the time lord- vampire war- in which was a major event in their history was considered myth until the 4th doctro stumbled across a vampire lord
1 month, 3 weeks ago on An Earthly Gallifrey
@Ollie Walton Harrod @conallmc2013 the origins of gallifrey is hazy. The time lord- vampire war was considered myth until the 4th doctor stumbled upon a lord. That being said is it not possible that gallifrey was a humanized colony, thereupon time travel was invented and we then have a civilization present throughout time. It is a reasonable assumption for time lords to believe they are the oldest things in existence but perhaps in a timey-wimey way humans came first. For instance humanity was unaware of evolution until very recently- historically speaking.
@doctorwhomultiverse That's not really true it the fact that we breed like rabbits and spread out across the universe. Earth's always been described as an ignorant child who is unaware of the magnitude of their universal surroundings and ultimately very primitive.
@doctorwhomultiverse He might not know that, the doctor might not know that's the case.
Earth cannot be gallifrey. Evolution in a distant colony i.e gallifrey is the only logical theory.
@Sharaz_Jek humans are described as the pests of the galaxy. In the future we are everywhere in the universe. logically the only theory that is substantive enough to support this point is evolution in the future. Personally I'd rather not know and would not like that theory to be furthered

It is possible that the gallifreyans evolved from humans and gallifrey is a humanized colony in the far future- irregardless of which they are classed as different species. However it is impossible for time lords to be human, their anatomy is entirely different although similar to humans.
Either Clara's comment "I don't know who the doctor is anymore" is cliched or the doctor must have undergone a massive alteration. She knows him better than anyone really so she better not be overreacting as she's seen the vast changes in the doctor's persona's.

@A Friend of the Ood @conallmc2013 Remember they were in our universe in the next doctor. Some must have survived as their design was consistent throughout 11's era until "Nightmare in silver" which was awful (I digress) Mondas cybermen are different from parallel cybermen the new design is a mondasian from the future at the point of extinction. For there to be more adventures with the cybermen Mondas should return.

@Scrawlers to be fair we didn't know about evolution until very recently if you compare our existence as a species. We don't know the origins of gallifrey- the doctor doesn't really either it was thought that the vampire- time lord war was myth but it did happen. My point is he could be an evolved human from a colony in the future. Personally I'd rather not know it makes watching him more mysterious.
He could be an evolved human from the far future in a distant colony. Of course they are a different species but that's evolution. He isn't human but he could be descendant from humans in a timey-wimey way. Its like how humans have some similarities with apes who we share a common ancestor. With the doctor he is very human at times but also very alien.
You can't and really shouldn't try and go darker than ecclestone. He has a reason to be an "anti-hero", capaldi's doctor has everything to live for! Sure maybe a bit stern and grouchy but still go find gallifrey its the time of your life (lives)

@Amy's on the Mofflex Diet 1- there are infinite versions of clara throughout that one instance of time alone.. so yeah reapers. 2- I don't think the time lords could contain such a massive paradox for such a brief period in another universe be realistic they are great but not that great. Nonetheless it must be said it is a paradox.
@A Friend of the Ood @conallmc2013 I was making a timey-wimey reason for it- by falling through a crack in time into another universe before being hit by hailey's comet- when gallifrey returns socould mondas in that instance. Secondly our universe cybermen originate from the parallel universe when they leaked through. Mondas cybermen are a different kind altogether...possibly. There could be an episode where the parallel universe cybermen create our universe cybermen. Just a thought
@sontaran17 @conallmc2013 @JackArtaganMackenna No joke I actually did! (Not the stasis cubes obviously i knew the outcome just not the execution)
@Notsosmartguy @TheNightmareChild... is Boe Derek @KingOrokos That would have made sense! Technically the whole clara arc is a massive paradox. If he didn't die at trenzelore, a time stream to enter would have been non existent, clara could not enter said time stream, doctor didn't meet clara. UNIVERSE IMPLOSION, FEASTING REAPERS.
@VortexDan It hasn't really it seems quite pointless that the doctor killed the only race intelligent enough to defeat the daleks for no real reason. The daleks returned in mass numbers so he commited mass genocide for what? Don't get me wrong gallifrey RTD era was good but gallifrey must return.
@MacduMela yes but by doing s he DIED. He was "reincarnated" and very unstable. Therefore is it not implied he HAS NO REGENERATIONS LEFT. The time lord's could give him some as an envoy to the doctor or he could be up to his usual antics stealing the doctor's regeneration's.
1 month, 3 weeks ago on The Master’s Moffat Plan
I thought that could be a possibility too but would never say it or create it if I was in charge. Humans are "the pests of the universe" in the future so maybe gallifrey is a humanized colony. Of course evolution and mutations take place and you have a gallifreyan, Omega invents time travel and you have time travel. Just a thought- would never be accepted though. The origins of gallifrey have never been explored so its possible just not probable.
@Malohkeh @A Friend of the Ood @doctorwhomultiverse Asylum had a good premise- daleks so dangerous they were abandoned by their own kind. In reality what actually was the threat? Mentally handicapped and physically handicapped daleks who bore no threat whatsoever to the doctor and companions. The thing with clara made no sense whatsoever also. As for victory i liked the episode was awful but excusable in bringing back the elite original daleks. But where did they go? All i have seen since is the generic bronze daleks. Terrible episodes which could have been so much more
@supermoff @doctorwhomultiverse Still the scenes shown were not at all scary or overwhelming, doesn't hold a candle to WW1 or WW2. I know children watch the show but put some better and more gruesome action
@sontaran17 @JackArtaganMackenna its not a great twist i (like many) predicted the outcome of gallifrey. Gallifrey will come back
@doctorwhomultiverse yes there was the vampire-time lord war in which occured when rassilon tried to gain power from different planes of existence through black holes. One such plane was inhabited by vampires and led to the first time lord full scale war. It drew out for a long time because of the time lord's lower tech at the time and the vampires great resistance. In the end they had to invent bow ships which saw them off- the 4th doctor using one in an episode. The entrance was blocked by Omega. There are apparantly descendents of the great vampires like the plasmavores in smith and jones.
Does the master even have any regenerations left? Technically he died at the last of the timelords and was resurrected in the end of time. If he does regenerate it could be by the time lords will to shape his image, not the master's. Since he wouldn't have any regenerations left he may yet again be looking for regenerative abilities
@Chris502 @PaddyB I'd rather be in the time war than in world war 1/2 the scenes were not at all disturbing. Obviously you couldn't captivate the whole war but a scary glimpse would be overwhelming to picture the overall war itself
@Timhogan Personally I think the master should pass himself off as the doctor because of his new regeneration. He could be elected as time lord president (as before) whilst ordering for "the master" (i.e. the real doctor )to be hunted down. Since they were best friends he would know his name so could instigate the return of gallifrey if he actually escaped the time war.
@Timhogan I think there should be a long wait until finally the doctor succeed's and is dead chuffed with himself... only to see fire raising from the planet in complete instability and several enemies entering the universe alongside too- like the vampires or omega or maybe just one major enemy( there's much potential). The look on the doctor's face of pure shock and fear would be bone chilling
or even the return of the vampire- time lord war
@Malohkeh @A Friend of the Ood @doctorwhomultiverse but were both crap
I thought it was better that the doctor had to live with killing his people to his ignorance for nearly a millennium than actually killing them. It makes you feel more for the doctor because he must live with regret for so long for no reason
@Amy's on the Mofflex Diet there would still be other enemies on the planets surface such as daleks the war may still be going on for all we know in the pocket universe. But I understand your comment it would be more intense during the time lock than after
@PaddyB Yeah i thought things would be crazier as the 10th doctor described the return of gallifrey as unleashing "hell", it wasn't at all as intense as it was built up to be.
In another perspective, the return of the time lords could mean the return of various enemies. For example Omega could escape his univers due to the weakness between one another because of gallifrey's return. There's also the matter of the "hell" that would be unleashed within gallifrey. I also have a view that perhaps the original cybermen could return? Maybe at the moment when Mondas was about to be hit by hailey's comet it fell through into another universe in a crack in time. When they return they could form an alliance with parallel universe originated cybermen only for both to believe they are superior to each other leading to a cyber war. A number of unpredictable other wordly monsters could be invented because of the same reason leading to a serious threat in our universe. Perhaps there could be a universal war between two universes. Of course many of these ideas are maybe far fetched but there's a lot of potential in them. Thoughts?
Strax is the lovable stereotype who makes a bad image for his race like willie from the Simpsons, Moffat has made them a joke in recent years- especially in time of the doctor. Definitely needs a reboot to remind us of the elite warrior prestige seen in the past.

@SonicTheHedgehogRules I liked the end but it is a paradox. The universe should have imploded again but hey if i had a nickel whenever moffat's writing right!
1 month, 3 weeks ago on Unpopular Opinion? The Power of Three
@Galactic Yo Yo @SonicTheHedgehogRules "Dinosaurs on a Spaceship"- if you read that title before watching the episode you'd think it was a poorly written fan fiction piece by a 5 year old( i.e its poorly written even at a 5 year old standard)
@PrisonerZeroIsACybermen no their not they are awful
if your going to do a slow invasion it should be across several episodes- by drawing suspense across 1 and creating a resolution just doesn't work its anti-climatic and feels very rushed. That being said I did like aspects of the episode similar to the lodger were we saw the doctor act more human and also provides insight into the pond's lives. Does it deserve an episode though?No, maybe as a mini-episode in which is not made to be taken seriously but enjoyed for its morsel of interest and glimpse of the shakri. The ending was dismal, why would the shakri plan a year long invasion that could be thwarted so easily- it seems like a massive waste of time. I know its only a small insight into their potential but why would the shakri reveal themselves to humanity in a slightly threatening way. Moreover why wouldn't they use their element of surprise as opposed to toying with the people- their objective is to wipe out pest species so why don't they do so more effectively it doesn't add up. Its like capturing james bond, telling him your entire plan and then trying to kill him in a elaborate ineffective way. The preceding episode to the end of a character i always meet with as much respect as it's finale. Like fear her and possibly boom town I didn't feel as a great last adventure send off.
What if the master tried to pass himself off as the doctor due to his new regeneration
@AlexandraShepiro sounds awful
lets look at what old enemies have been represented so far...
Cybermen- complete joke now! Even in RTD reign they failed-largely- to carry weaponry only electrocution from their hands- although that is a minor grievance. But in Moffat's reign we have cybermen that can upgrade on queue! that makes them literally impossible to kill they are now totally overpowered enemies.
Daleks- Amazing new design in my opinion but were did they go? All Ive seen since "Victory of the daleks" is the same bronze daleks. Besides that they have been overused now after the success of RTD era- its now repetitive all episodes since have been poor so a return of davros i would see as being equally as bad a decision as a return of the master.
Silurians- good job! I couldn't see future potential though so far all silurian and sea devil episodes have been the same so rules both species out.
Sontarans- Had a two parter but have now become a walking joke under moffat especially noted in the time of the doctor and strax who although is somewhat amusing has stereotyped the race for the worse. That being said they should return to reaffirm themselves as a serious threat.
Ice warriors- Loads of potential upon their mysterious nature should definitely return.
I would then class the master as an enemy who should be saved for a special occasion later. I would like to see Omega return, Possibly when Gallifrey returns his antimatter universe could enter alongside or some kind of antimatter ship of description- good cliffhanger for end of series. Autons also as they haven't had a major role since "ROSE" yet need a better objective.
Finally i would like to see the return of our unierse cybermen from mondas as an origin story like "genesis of the daleks", and/or have a war between the parallel universe cybermen as both believe they are superior to the other breaking an alliance they originally shared. Mondas could return the same way as gallifrey because maybe they fell through the cracks in time into their pocket universe before being hit by hailey's comet. Or maybe they could expand on the sontaran/rutan war? My point is the master doesn't need to return- so he shouldn't- there are better enemies just now who could make better stories. I would appreciate comments on my views/ ideas.
@supermoff @Sir James Bond tbh anyone's better than moffat
@Gustaff @Grizzlybread Do we even know that he is limited to just another cycle, its not as if the time lords told him! I'm sure that if they want to free gallifrey which may take thousands of years that they would protect the doctor as much as possible so he can allow their return. B that logic therefore is it not theoretical that he has tens of, if not hundreds of re generations? In terms of what is speculated you are indeed correct.
dalek- the 9th doctor's performance was class, the end of time- the tenth doctor's performance was class, the rings of akhatan- the 11th doctor's performance was class. Best performance's and some of the best episodes for most whovians- IMO

2 months ago on Comparing the Different Arcs of the Revival
you forget that the fact that clara even entered the doctors time stream IS a paradox. It is supposed to be the "veil" into the entire life of the doctor from birth to his death at trenzelore. If the doctor did not die at trenzelore then clara cannot enter said veil- unless it was a future doctor. However clara is unaware of the doctors future so that is not the case. The veil should not exist nor should clara's entire storyline which means Moffat has his work cut out in trying to logically make sense of this arc. Moreover is the viewer supposed to expect that the doctor never once across 1000 years notice "millions" of versions of clara throughout time and space? No its only recently that the doctor catches on. On a seperate note by entering and altering the doctors timestream you are creating multiple paradox's in which I can guarantee some of his most important successes and presence in major universal events e.g- the genesis of the daleks, the end of time or even the reboot of the universe! According to RTD and everything beforehand and afterwards by various other writers there shold be billions of reapers flying about or alternatively the universe should just disappear as it was the doctor in the pandorica who saved it.
2 months ago on Does Clara Hide a Secret that is Bigger on the Inside?
@IamTheDoctorBasicallyRun I need to say something about the Time of the time lords. There are not magical satellites nor are the wishes magical in nature it has long been established that time lords have incredible telepathic powers. It also explains how this occurred by Martha travelling the word and spreading the news so as to create uniformed thought at a single time creating powerful rejuvenating energy for the doctor. The only thing it didn't explain was how he integrated with the satellites but it was established in the episode beforehand of their incredible communication in which the master abused for his hypnotic abilities.
