** Or maybe there ''are'' ten million ships attacking the planet, but the majority aren't anywhere near big enough to be seen in a shot that includes the whole of Gallifrey in the background. Planets are ''big'', and only the most gigantic ships of the Dalek fleet would be visible as more than pinpricks in relation to the world they're attacking. Realistically, we wouldn't be able to see dinky little police boxes zipping around it either, if the camera didn't specifically zoom in on them so the audience can make out that they're the TARDIS.

** Wouldn't it be interesting if it turned out the portion of the TARDIS's system that was doing the calculations all this time was the portion that normally handled the calculations for the Chameleon Circuit? It would certainly explain why it's never worked right...

** They're NoodleImplements. We're supposed to wonder, that's partly the point. Besides which, as mentioned above, it's not like any of those objects is completely incapable of being reproduced in some form. All of them can be reproduced or replicated in other circumstances in some way.

Added DiffLines:

** There's a specific time-stamp on the opening Fall of Arcadia scene, that states it's the ''last day'' of the Time War. Presumably all the battles and catastrophes and nightmarish creatures which the Doctor had name-dropped in previous stories were brought to bear much earlier in the war than that.


Added DiffLines:

*** Specifically, he said that the High Council's plans had failed because Gallifrey was still in the line of fire. Presumably he'd known of Rassilon's attempt to shift Gallifrey to Earth's solar system, although not necessarily of the "destroy the universe and ascend to a higher plane" part of his scheme.

** Also, the Doctors specifically stated that nobody would remember if they were human or Zygon. They never said anything about anyone losing memories of whether they were ''Time Lords'' or not.

* The Time Lock wasn't the Moment's doing, IIRC it's something the Time Lords established early in the War so that the Daleks couldn't attack Gallifrey's past.

** There have been a lot of Supreme Daleks, the explosives are a common product that some alien race or other could've had on hand when they caused trouble on Earth, the restraint chair may not have been the only one Naismith had on hand at his estate, and River is revealed in "The Husbands Of River Song" to have taken the TARDIS joyriding behind the Doctor's back, so who knows ''how'' many spare pairs of shoes she's left all over Earth's past, present and future? But yes, the sonic probe is a tough one; maybe Amelia and Rory Williams tried to cobble one together late in life, based on what they recalled of old-Amy's design? It probably wouldn't have worked - they'd have died some time before cell phones became available as components - but UNIT clearly knows about the Ponds, so might have commandeered the blueprints and built one later.
