** The Zygon plotline is, for the most part, resolved in "The Zygon Invasion/Inversion". In quite a satisfactory way, IMHO.

* So is the "painting" really a painting? i.e. Did some artist use materials to create a stylized image based on his/her observations, albeit with literal depth, or should we consider it more like a photograph, albeit with more depth?

*** Or to expand upon that- we now know that the 12th (14th) Doctor is an older man, much like the 1st Doctor. Perhaps, on his second cycle, he may go through faces that are similar to and correspond with the faces in his first cycle. For example: 13th (15th) Doctor might be short, like the 2nd Doctor, 16th (18th) Doctor might be young and blonde, like the 5th, and 18th (20th) Doctor might be Scottish, like the 7th Doctor. Revisiting old faces?

* Simplest explanation is that there probably ''is'' still some kind of Time Lock surrounding the specific events of the Time War and these particular entities; it's just that Gallifrey was actually spared and locked away somewhere else outside of the Time Lock. It's most likely that the Tenth Doctor's memory was just simply failing him regarding exactly ''how'' the Time Lock was activated, since his memory of him saving it with his other selves was wiped just like the War Doctor's; he assumed he did it with the Moment, when in fact he did it differently.

[[folder: Is the Time Lock gone?]]
* During the "first time around", the Doctor used the Moment to seal away the Time War in a Time Lock. However, during the "second time around" we saw in this episode, the Doctor does not use the Moment, instead sealing Gallifrey away in a safe place. So since the Moment was never used, does that mean the Time Lock was written out of existence? Is the Nightmare Child, the Skaro Degradations, and everything else in the Time War now free to attack the universe unopposed by the Time Lords? And how would the events of the previous seasons remain the same since Dalek Caan gained near-omniscience by flying through the Time Lock when he wasn't supposed to? Shouldn't that event have ceased to exist now that the Time Lock never existed? Shouldn't the erasure of the Time Lock massively change everything up until this episode?

** Solved in "Time of the Doctor". [[spoiler: 11 is actually 13, counting the War Doctor and meta-crisis Doctor, but during the siege on Trenzalore the Time Lords grant him a new regeneration cycle.]]
