so what the fuck actually happened on Doctor Who last night? a powerpoint presentation by i-wanna-be-a-starship-ranger.
yes to this except that The Doctor told River his name when they got married in “The Wedding of River Song” right? And she knew it during Silence in the Library. Also, Idk I think it could make sense with John Hurt as the lost regeneration during the Time War, like he was the one who killed all the Time Lords but he didn’t call himself the Doctor because he broke that promise
re the ‘lost regeneration’ thing, I’m not surprised not many people have watched Trial of a Time Lord, it’s pretty atrocious and all, but I suppose you could look up The Valeyard on Wikipiedia or something and that’ll give you a perfectly good explanation. I mean Clara did say to him “But you’re the Eleventh Doctor” and he said “Yes, I know, but” - which is the only time they’ve ever the number has been used in canon (though previously Fivey and Tennant have said how many there were before). Point being, they literally spelt it out for people and they still don’t get it?
The only other explanation is it’s not about the Time War, it’s about the old days on Gallifrey, and…I dunno, read Lungbarrow and see if that makes sense. But that’s a long shot.
I’m not saying it IS The Valeyard; I’m saying that proves it can be a darker facet of The Doctor. I find it interesting the name “Storm” was dropped last night when the most obvious answer to who it is could be “The Oncoming Storm”.
