Different incarnations of The Doctor being in the same place at the same time are supposed to be extremely rare and only possible in particular conditions. From 'The Three Doctors': CHANCELLOR: You can't allow him to cross his own time stream. Apart from the enormous energy it would need, the First Law of Time expressly forbids him to meet his other ...

We only ever see the original Clara as a baby. The original Clara, born to human parents, is the one that "came into this world on a leaf"; that is she carried around the leaf that her parents found when they met and kept. It is this Clara that enters The Doctor's timestream on Trenzalore and gets scattered throughout his timeline. The Doctor rescues her ...

If there's one comparison we can make to past stories, it's Scaroth of the Jagaroth. Like Clara, he was scattered across time; unlike Clara he was able to communicate with his other time-forms. But the idea is similar. We know of at least two examples of her having a complete life before The Doctor - those from Snowmen and Asylum. but there's also the ...

1) If there's one place any TARDIS would unerringly be able to get to, it's Gallifrey. It's their home port, their place of origin. Four was able to get there without error when he got The Call. So in the case of One and Two, they never wanted to go there, so they simply didn't. 2) The TARDIS (and The Doctor) has been working on the calculations for the ...

He remembers the things they did, he just didn't remember her specifically. He knew he'd been gallivanting around time and space with someone, but didn't remember her name, her face, or specific emotions he had toward her, and other specifics. The end of the episode, when he's speaking to Clara but doesn't realize it, he knows he doesn't remember the woman ...

Moffat has done a number of stories about beings that live invisibly among us, only being visible from the proverbial corner of the eye. The Silence and Prisoner Zero are both examples of beings you only see that way. And they ALL started in a prose story of the same name Steven wrote in 2006. “Corner of the Eye” was a story for The Doctor Who Storybook ...

I cannot find any record of a connection between the two. Perhaps the plots between the two have less in common than you remember? In the Impossible Astronaut the Dr discovers the Silence, an alien race, have been living amongst and influencing humanity without our knowledge or being able to see them. That isn't quite correct - everybody can see the ...

The Time Lords created and attempted to monopolise time travel technology. They are frequently shown in early classic serials monitoring time from a place known as 'Time Control'. In serials such as The Three Doctors it is depicted rather like a human air-traffic control room. Several serials (such as the Seventh Doctor serial Attack of the Cybermen) refer ...

Was the ability of timelords to regenerate mentioned in any episodes before the first Doctor became the second Doctor? No. Regeneration was a completely unknown concept to viewers when the first regeneration took place in the final serial of the First Doctor. Most of the concepts we now accept as canon were added very slowly over the show's long run. The ...

"No more" is not an unusual thing for anyone to say, especially in sci-fi. I wouldn't take the one instance of Rassilon saying it as being related to the repetition in The Day of The Doctor (the 50th-anniversary episode). Obviously, the phrase means the same as "enough is enough". It is a declaration that you will not accept something any more. In the case ...

The phrase / question was first used in the second episode of the series. Ian asks The Doctor to open the doors of the TARDIS, addressing him as "Doctor Foreman". The Doctor responds in a mutter to himself. Eh? Doctor who? What's he talking about...? Later in the episode, Barbara refers to him as "Doctor Foreman" and Ia corrects her. That's not his ...

The use of the word regeneration to describe the transition of The Doctor or other Timelords from one form to another as a means of renewal after taking an otherwise mortal wound didn't take place until the 1974 serial Planet of the Spiders, which introduced Tom Baker as the Fourth Doctor. The concept of regeneration is only introduced in the final serial ...

My personal theory was after the timewar he used his name as a password on the timelock keeping the time war contained. Before that it he just preferred his title for personal and cultural reasons. Another poster does mention the Medusa Cascade. Note the big deal he made about his secret in the Akhaten speech and - to me - implying he rebooted a post ...

The only canon seals that I know of are the Time Lord seal, Rassilon and Omega's seal, and the seal of the Master. The four founder seals other than Rassilon and Omega's were designed by myself and a former member of a fandom group I run, New Gallifrey.

In "The Tsuranga Conundrum," when Yaz locates the bomb on board the ship they're on: DOCTOR: Ten points for Yasmin Khan. And yes, I am keeping score, for all of you. Ronan, up your game. Jokes. So... Then, in "Demons of the Punjab": PREM: What's she saying? RYAN: If I had to guess, I think we're going demon hunting. DOCTOR: Gold star for Ryan. Oh, ...

The writers of the original series were working off of the BBC Original Format which had the Doctor coming from the future. Indeed they had the TARDIS as being a product of 5733. And the authorities of the 50th Century had deemed that no forward sight was possible for Time Lords, so they couldn't know their own destinies. It seems some people like to create ...

Looms , and it made children too ( wrongly some people think not ) based on information about books and audios in https://tardis.fandom.com/wiki/Loom : “According to one account, upon being Loomed into the House of Lungbarrow, the Doctor was physically in the form of a child. (PROSE: Human Nature) Some children of other Houses, while being mentally or ...

To repeat someone else's short answer: we don't know (yet). All we know about the newly revealed 'Doctor' portrayed by Jo Martin at this point is: She is The Doctor She is not from a parallel universe (these two points have been confirmed by writer and showrunner Chris Chibnall) Neither Doctor recognises the other was in their past, so we can't say if ...

Short Answer: I don't know what will be revealed in future programs about any extra lives the Doctor may have had. I have a little evidence and a theory. Long Answer: I don't know what the answer is. But here is some more evidence. In the Fourth Doctor series from the 13th season "The Brain of Morbius", 3 to 24 January 1976, written by Terrance Dicks ...

My current theory is that the manipulation of his regeneration permanently damaged his regeneration making it painful and explosive rather than the peaceful transition it used to be. I based this on the fact that 8-> war wasn’t shown but was messed with artificially and since then they have been consistent. Some people may argue that melody pond to river ...

The answer is, we don't know yet. We know that the Time Lords can bestow an entirely new regeneration cycle. There's nothing to say they can't also add regenerations to the current cycle. Clever Theories abound, but most are centering on the period between Troughton and Pertwee as the most likely place that this "new" regeneration could have occurred. ...
