None. The Shadow Proclamation, so far as we can tell, had no role in the Last Great Time War (assuming that's the time war you're referring to; the Last Great was by no means the only Time War). We actually have no indication that the Shadow Proclamation is exceptionally powerful, much less the "highest authority in the universe." It's a strictly galactic ...

The time lock, as it pertains to the mechanism that prevents the Doctor from re-entering the Time War, does not encompass the whole of Gallifrey's past. It only serves to keep time-travelers from coming into the War, and to keep what's in the War from getting out: DOCTOR: Inside the Time War. And the whole War was time-locked. Like, sealed inside a bubble....

The first indication that we get that The Doctor was personally responsible for the end of the Time War and the death of both races comes pretty early, in S01E06, "Dalek", when The Doctor taunts the newly-discovered broken Dalek: DALEK: I demand orders! DOCTOR: They're never going to come! Your race is dead! You all burnt, all of you. Ten million ...

Highly unlikely. The Nightmare Child is a vague, unspecified threat that the Tenth Doctor mentions, along with a laundry list of other horrors, that the Daleks or Time Lords unleashed during the Time War. We have no idea what kind of creature this was, or if it was even alive. But what we do know about it is: It was "born" during the Time War. Ashildir ...

Apart from the Master in the classic series there was the Meddling Monk who the first Doctor met a couple of times on Earth, the fourth Doctor met Drax, the sixth and seventh Doctors met the Rani.

While never stated openly, it appears that Rassilon lead the Time Lords down a dark path where the ends justified the means and all sorts of abominations (we're never shown them) were created. Things The Doctor himself feared. In other words, they became just as bad, if not worse than, the Daleks. In the episode The End of Time we see that Rassilon, ready to ...

Not only did the War Doctor join the Time War, he finished the Time War by detonating The Moment and wiping out both Daleks and Time Lords. Or at least that's what he thought, after he regenerated into the Ninth, then Tenth, and Eleventh Doctors. He went for most of his next 3 regenerations actually believing he was guilty of genocide, which broke the ...

Gallifrey is/was an isolationist society, and external time travel is culturally taboo. The celestial intervention agency only intervenes in events that might have hugely catastrophic consequences, and usually manipulate the few rogue timelords (who do travel, violating taboo) into doing their dirty work for them.

I don't think the barn was on Gallifrey. In "Day of the Doctor", after he destroys those Daleks with the TARDIS, the Doctor flies it out into space. Plus, with the bombardment the Daleks were performing on Gallifrey, it would not likely be anywhere that peaceful.

The Time Lords didn't 'lose' the Time War - it was effectively halted by The Doctor because he foresaw, not a loss, but a stalemate that would potentially end the entire universe. The Ninth Doctor talked about the war but didn't reveal the exact details of what happened. When confronted with a Dalek in the episode Dalek, he suggested that they had been ...

As @Lighthart noted, not that many Time Lords left Gallifrey as a matter of course to begin with, so there wouldn't be that many of them swanning about anyway. And with the whole of spacetime to romp around in, that's a lot of wherewhens to contend with, so the chances of running into another Time Lord purely by chance would be extremely slim. But more ...

Well, for one thing, we see that the eleventh Doctor's regeneration only destroyed the one saucer above the clock tower and the ground forces in the town, not the fleet that was in orbit above the planet. In "The Day of the Doctor", we saw some of the Daleks' numbers during the Time War, and they had enough saucers to surround the planet of Gallifrey, and ...

As @UncleMikey says in his answer, it's impossible to get a serious figure for all the deaths from all the species involved (including as 'collateral damage') in all the years (centuries? millenia? all of time and space?) in the Last Great Time War. However, we can get rough approximations for the numbers of the main antagonists (Time Lords and Daleks) ...

Yes, the Time Lords have had (will have) multiple cross-temporal conflicts or "time wars" over the length of their species' existence. The first time war fought by Gallifrey was the Black Sun War, starting when the Order of the Black Sun sent a time-travelling assassin to prevent Gallifrey from gaining time travel. (COMIC: Star Death, 4-D War) The ...

Major spoilers below! The Doctor did honestly believe that he destroyed Gallifrey and the Timelords. In addition to the example you gave, he says it all few times over the rest of the series. House: Why should it matter to me in which room you die? I can kill you just as easily here as anywhere. Fear me. I've killed hundreds of Time Lords. The ...

The Time Lords had a pretty proud leader: Rassilon. Keep in mind, the Time Lords were pretty desperate towards the end of the war (the Tenth Doctor listed the horrors they would revisit upon the universe if they returned). The Time Lords were messing with creation itself and Rassilon would summarily execute anyone who questioned him. This wasn't war like ...

The Sontarans do not have access to the kind of spacetime travel that the Time Lords and the daleks possess. That the Time Lords possess this kind of technology goes without saying. The daleks, on the other hand, have showed different time travel capabilities at different points in the series. In "Resurrection of the Daleks," the Doctor says that they ...

Is it ever revealed how many beings died during the Time War? No. There are only hints as to the incomprehensible scale. It effected multiple civilizations across multiple galaxies. Neither side hesitate in actions that caused collateral damage. "...you aren't finished yet! Some of the universe is still standing" Pilot Cass to a "Time Lord&...

There is no canonical or out-of-universe statement of the total number of casualties across the entirety of the Time War. We certainly know that entire species were wiped out or nearly so--the Zygons, the Nestene, the Gelth, to name a few--as collateral damage, but since we have no sense of their population figures, nor any comprehensive list of other races ...


2

No canonical mention of any other temporal conflict has ever been mentioned on screen. The BBC 8th Doctor Novel range described a series of events beginning with a "Last Contact" between the Time Lords and an unnamed Enemy. Several of the novels in that series depicted paradoxical events, including an alternate death-and-regeneration event for the Third ...

The way I see it is that when Clara was in the barn (that I believe was on Gallifrey more than I believe it wasn't), The Doctor was a very small child. Being that Time Lords "age" very very slowly it could have been nearly 2000 years before the Time War. I don't know the specifics about the time lock on Gallifrey but it could be that Gallifrey could be ...

Some prose evidence of Rassilon's guilt: The Doctor took Cinder to Gallifrey in order to warn the Time Lords of the Daleks' plan. The Doctor told Rassilon and the High Council of the Daleks' plan, and Rassilon decided to use to Tear of Isha to wipe the Dalek presence from the Eye, killing all other life in the area in the process. The Doctor was against ...

In the Big Finish The War doctor series specific 3. Doctor Who: The War Doctor - Agents of Chaos, in the second of the three 3 stories on the disc called The Eternity Cage, The Sontarens did try to invade the Time War to participate in it. The Doctor more or less said that their exclusion was because fighting in the Time war, required a level of skill, that ...

In a Big Finish Eighth Doctor Time War vol 1 in the story called The Conscript it is explained by the Doctor that the Daleks used Regeneration inhibitor incorporated in their gunsticks. You got hit with one of those weapons and it was GAME OVER, you would die with regeneration never starting. And in The War Doctor vol 2 in the story Legion of the Lost it is ...

As I see it, there are two possibilities: 1) Not all regenerations are that powerful. In the show, we've only seen two regenerations like that: Ten (his second one) and eleven's. I still haven't read a reason of why 10's regeneration was that explosive, the only explanation that makes sense is that he delayed it for so long. As for 11, it was a new cycle, ...
