The Doctor explains it himself, during The Time of The Doctor (emphasis mine): DOCTOR: I knew. I always knew it wasn't over. CLARA: What is it? DOCTOR: A split in the skin of reality. A tiny sliver of the 26th of June, 2010. The day the universe blew up. CLARA: Missed that. DOCTOR: I rebooted it, put it all back together. ...

The question of size and mass makes sense in universe. Time Lords can alter the size (dimension) of the TARDIS irrespective of the mass of the TARDIS. (Time Lords being dimensional engineers after all!) So while the TARDIS has infinite volume it does not necessarily have infinite mass. This then allows for them to eject a quarter of the mass of the TARDIS ...

The actual answer is that the Valeyard still has the potential to re-appear at some point in the future. Due to an accidental script distinction that probably didn't mean at the time, what it now means. (Aside from the fact that he survived the final episode of "The Trial of a Time Lord" and may still just be... "Out there somewhere" just waiting for a bored ...

The obvious, out-of-universe answer to this question is that each regeneration shown in the early TV show was an example of the visual special-effects of the day. The show has spanned so many decades it is no wonder that the SFX have improved. The newer show since 2005 has also seen improvements in SFX over the seasons, but they appear to have tried to bring ...

This hasn't been answered in the series yet. However, the Valeyard is an "amalgamation" of aspects of different incarnations of the Doctor, not an incarnation himself. This means that he may have been created for the purpose of the trial, and not actually expected to appear between the two incarnations mentioned. But there is something else that seems to ...

'What dimension is the interior of the TARDIS in'? The short answer is: the same dimension that the exterior is in. Remember that the true meaning of 'dimensions' (which is what the 'D' in TARDIS stands for) is quite different to the common sci-fi usage of the word 'dimensions' to refer to other realms or parallel universes. There is, obviously, a ...

A "dimension" is an orthagonal direction, not an "alternate universe". The 3 special dimensions that you are most used to are Longitude (x-axis, East/West), Latitude (y-axis, North/South) and Altitude (z-axis, Up/Down). The Tardis extends into an additional dimension - spissitude (w-axis, Kata/Ana) - of which we are not typically aware. The Tardis is to ...

The interior isn't in a "different dimension". It's just bigger on the inside, thanks to Time Lord science -- to wit, dimensional engineering. As the Fourteenth Doctor points out when someone states you can't "engineer dimensions", "maybe you can't." It should be noted that throughout the entirety of time and space, the Time Lords seem to be the only ...

The Tardis isn't really bigger on the inside. Its interier is in a pocket universe and the exo shell or exterior is in our universe and the two are connected via a dimensional threshold (basically a portal). When the Tardis re mats around a object or person that object is moved into the primary control room so when the Tardis’ shields were deactivated the ...

She has to be 24 years older. From the transcript RIVER: Funny thing is, this means you've always known how I was going to die. All the time we've been together, you knew I was coming here. The last time I saw you, the real you, the future you, I mean, you turned up on my doorstep, with a new haircut and a suit. You took me to Darillium to see the Singing ...

It is unclear as Doctor Who has this habit of retconning itself. Remember that River Song didn't know of the Doctor's "13th" (Peter Capaldi) incarnation as of one his incarnations counts as two (it didn't make that much sense at the time and makes less sense the more you look at it). RIght now it looks like she was at leas 24 years older but that is about ...
