* Are the TARDISes a slave race? They don't seem to have any rights, and we're told they're a race in their own right despite being in the form of ships and literally unable to move on their own, which seems a little like Time Lord engineering to control them to me. What does a "wild" TARDIS look like? Do they always have to be "owned" by a Time Lord? Basically, are they slaves?

** That doesn't really explain it, because there are several episodes ([[Recap/DoctorWhoS29E3Gridlock "Gridlock"]] and [[Recap/DoctorWhoS30E3PlanetOfTheOod "Planet of the Ood"]] are the first to come to mind, but there are many other examples) where we first see humans of the future before the TARDIS and Doctor even arrive on the scene, and they are still speaking with a British accent. Nor does it explain why, as mentioned above, why the reality TV shows of the year 200100 are based on British shows of the 21st century.

* Why is it that, when the Doctor travels to the future, most of the time he meets humans who are British or at least speak with a British accent, even in times where the current nation states have ceased to exist long ago? (Given how influential the USA is, you'd think American accents would be more dominant in the future, just as they are now.) The most egregious example is of course [[Recap/DoctorWhoS27E12BadWolf "Bad Wold"]], where not only does everyone speak with a British accent, but we also learn that British 21st century reality TV shows are still popular in the year 200100! Though that episode is hardly the only one where this happens.
