There is one, the (lost) First Doctor episode, "Mission to the Unknown" from the third show's third season. (During the First Doctor's tenure, each episode had an individual title, something that was abandoned for the rest of the classic series, which had titles for full stories, divided into parts.) "Mission to the Unknown" was created ...

There are only two possible reasons why the Tenth Doctor said, or implied that he was going to die from the radiation incident (although he didn't actually say "I'm gonna die after this" as you stated, but he did infer it) I could do so much more. So much more! But this is what I get. My reward. And it's not fair! Oh. Oh. I've lived too long. i) ...

There is no in-universe or in-canon way (as of the last episodes in which we saw him, anyway) to genuinely know even whether the most recently seen Master is "newer" than Missy, or is a previous regeneration the Doctor hadn't encountered before Missy. Beyond that, the Doctor is always changing timelines, even Fixed Points in Time: undoing the Time ...

He examines the crack and finds a fragment of broken TARDIS inside. This indicates that the cracks in time were going to be caused by the destruction of the TARDIS. The destruction will happen in the Doctor's future, but the cracks appear throughout time, and so are seen in the past.

As of the end of season 12, the answer is no - we don't know how he did it. All we know is that the Master selectively destroyed parts of it, so it cannot have been some weapon of mass destruction: "I burned the Citadel". "I destroyed a lot of things, but not this trove of secrets". And of course, he didn't 'destroy' the Time Lords - ...

Rassilon's entire plan to save the Time Lords required them to break out of the timelock. They were doing that by bringing Gallifrey through the time vortex by a 'link' they created. The 'link' relied on the Master being alive, as the drumbeat in his head was acting as a beacon. The Doctor had the upper hand - he had a gun and could terminate the link by ...

I've always had the impression it was simply an act of deceit (and to keep the Master in check; never the Doctor). Rassillion is just trying to buy time as he's well aware the Doctor ultimately won't shoot him (nor the Master).

The Tardis explosion caused a shock wave in time that led to a "total event collapse" in "The Pandorica Opens". I think you just have to accept that whatever makes a TARDIS work was sufficiently powerful to destroy space-time if it exploded in such a manner. To the question "what does this mean". This manifested itself as every ...

Actually there has been a lot of fan controversey over the decades about how many times the Doctor has already regenerated. Once the first Doctor regenerated into the second Doctor, it was possible to wonder whether he had ever regenerated before, and if so, how many times. In episodes where different Doctors meet each other, they say which life or ...

The TARDIS is infinite space and time pressed into a police box, at a single time. When you take infinite space and time and cause it to explode outward, that shatters the fabric of reality at every point in space and time.

The question mentions a prophecy about the Doctor's death. If an actual prophecy was made, there seem to be two possible explanations why the Doctor didn't die. In a hard science fiction story, as opposed to a fantasy story, a prophecy should be expected to be false, either a deliberate lie or a sincere but misguided belief in the ability to see the future....

Because Rassilon knew (or thought) that The Doctor, at that point, had two options: Allow the Time Lords to complete their plan and destroy the universe Kill Rassilon, and then get killed in return The reason that he didn't mind the second option was that he would not only kill The Doctor in the end, but it would be a victory of a whole other level (other ...

Per wikipedia; Enraged at their plans being ruined, the Blathereen teleport to the attic and threaten to destroy everyone. Mr Smith generates the same frequency, destroying the partially digested Rakweed in their stomachs. The resultant build-up of methane gas in the Blathereens' stomachs causes them to explode. Clyde is then told to clean up the mess and ...
