[[WMG: The Sontarans were created by the Kaminoans]]
The Kaminoans are expert cloners, and describe the Grand Army of the Repuablic as the finest they've ever made, suggesting there were others. We know the Sontarans are a clone army.

* Except this doesn't explain why ALL Time Lords look human when they're among their own kind on Gallifrey. Or why the doctor literally says "Humans look Time Lord", implying Time Lords and humans look remarkably similar. Not to mention that there are numerous occasions where the Doctor has had implied intimate relationships with humans.

** While I hope note, that could just be like Cassandra. She claimed to be the last human because after billions of years of interbreeding with other species she felt the other remaining humans were all "mongrels". Though Jack doesn't seem like the type to have that sort of bigotry, he could have that sort of attitude and his statement would make sense.

** The Doctor and Romana definitely had a connection (of course nothing sexual ever happened in the show but he did take her punting).

[[WMG: Doctor Who takes place in Star Trek's Mirror Universe]]

In Doctor Who, the future of humanity is frequently shown as a conquering empire (often with different names) which is consistent with the Terran empire from Star Trek. At one point, the Mirror Universe had humans enslaved. Plenty of Doctor Who episodes had humanity conquered or even at the brink of extinction (See "The Dalek Invasion of Earth" or "The Sunmakers") only to end up making a come back. Most future Doctor Who stories don't give clear dates or are quite far in the future so I don't recall any which would contradict including the Star Trek events.

The Series/StarTrekEnterprise episode "In A Mirror, Darkly" credits also included a shot of the moonlanding but the flag was the Earth flag and the space suit was more advanced than in reality. This is consistent with the Unit years of Doctor Who which hinted not only at a more powerful United Nations but at a more advanced space programme, suggesting it's quite believable there would have been an early united Earth space landing (even if it had to be kept secret from the population). The episode also showed people attacking the Vulcans when they landed and taking their guns, which would make sense if you were as used to alien invasions as the people of the Doctor Who universe are.

The lack of interbreeding with other species and the fact that a peaceful Federation never occurred between us would go some way to explaining why notable Star Trek species don't turn up (there are after all countless worlds where we only see the species once on both of these shows and it's only major ones that repeat). As for the lack of Doctor Who species on Star Trek, perhaps some were. Plenty of species look basically human in both cases. The "Overlookers" from Series/StarTrekVoyager do actually look rather Sontaran and could be from the species the Sontarans were originally from before they became a clone race. ForWantOfANail the Borg may have been more successful in one universe and prevented the rise of the Daleks and Cybermen (both of whose genocidal ways handily could have eliminated many of the Star Trek species post 24th century which humans never had much contact with before the 22nd century anyway, explaining why we never really see them). By contrast, in the Mirror Universe the Borg never got off the ground.

[[WMG: The Doctor's age is MetaphoricallyTrue.]]
As we saw in "The Name of the Doctor" he disowns parts of himself he doesn't think are the "The Doctor". After the Time War the 9th Doctor decided to only count the time he was the space hero he saw himself as. The "900 years old" is the time he's had the role we're familiar with. This both excludes his existence as the War Doctor and a good portion as his time as the 1st Doctor. Not because he is necessarily ashamed, but because he has started counting on the day he became the man he is-when he first stole the TARDIS and went off exploring in space. The age the first eight Doctors was their actual age, the age Doctors 9-11 gave were the time they spent active as the Doctor. Only once he realized the truth of the War Doctor did he finally accept that part of his life. The reason the 12th Doctor gives a general age(over 2000) instead of something more specific like 2100 is that he includes his actual lifespan, he just hasn't bothered adding things up yet.



[[WMG: Rory's [[TheyKilledKennyAgain deaths]] is the timeline trying to re-orientate itself.]]
When Rory died in "Cold Blood", it was his first time dying. However it shouldn't have happened. There were a future version of Amy and Rory 10 years into their future who they saw. If you know your future, your future is set. The only reason why he was able to die at all was because of [[TimeCrash the crack in time]] interfering with the natural flow of events, preventing this rule from playing out. Ever since then the universe has been trying to restore the timeline to its normal state, by saving him from death. In "The Power of Three" Amy and Rory mention they've been with him for 10 years and are aging faster than they should. Time was trying to keep Rory(and Amy for that matter) alive for ten more years of his life, so he could be seen by his younger self and thus set the future. Afterwards he could finally die permanently in "The Angels Take Manhattan". Well, at least until the Weeping Angels got hold of him and set his future again to waste his life away in the hotel, but that didn't stop Rory and Amy from making a paradox of their own. [[MemeticBadass Being Rory]], time just gave up on him and decided to give a free pass

* This might explain why the Master looked like a zombie after Roger Delgado. He already expended the 12 normal regenerations, and [[BodyHorror his Pratt/Beavers incarnation]] is what a Time Lord might degenerate into if they try to regenerate a 13th time without a new cycle being added. Time Lords technically can regenerate more than 12 times, [[Disney/{{Aladdin}} but it's not a pretty picture]], considered a FateWorseThanDeath, and only someone like [[ImmortalsFearDeath the Master]] would do something so desperate.

[[WMG: The Master is a sci-fi [[OurLichesAreDifferent lich]].]]
We know with Missy s/he has access to a slice of the Time Lord Data Matrix, a device that can contain the consciousness of the dead. We don't know how long s/he has it, but it could be a lot longer than the Missy incarnation. The reason for the Master's JokerImmunity is that he has a SoulJar somewhere. The real issue is getting new and longer-lasting bodies.

[[WMG: Stopping Davros wouldn't have stopped the Daleks.]]
By the time Davros came to be, Skaro was a CrapsackWorld that was filled with mutants and barely habitable due to the [[ForeverWar Thousand-Year War]]. They already had a semi-Dalek life support which allowed Davros to survive his horrific injuries. Had he been stopped, the Kaleds would end up resorting to becoming Daleks anyway. Davros just sped things up.

* He likes to keep a few servants around incase he needs an emergency host, but like Ba'al he's a bit GenreSavvy and admits to being an alien so the humans can contribute effectively.

[[WMG: The Master and the Doctor didn't fall out because the Master turned evil, but because the Doctor turned good]]
The Doctor's always been hinted to have not been very good academically, and Moffat's era has hinted even more strongly that his whole childhood was very unhappy. My theory is that the Doctor and the Master were both misfits at school, and that when they got together they became a couple of nihilistic juvenile delinquents doing petty crime together. But as they got older the Doctor developed more of a conscience and broke things off with the Master, and the Master without the Doctor restraining him escalated further from small-scale hooligan to interstellar supervillain.

[[WMG: The Doctor's lack of social skills in regards to humans and other species is simply due to being A DIFFERENT SPECIES]] Because the Doctor is not human, he would not necessarily understand human (or other alien) non-verbal communication (body language, etc.) and would probably be instinctively 'looking' for the non-verbal signals that he would get from his own kind, which other species probably would not produce, or at least not in a way that he can understand. Things like postures, gestures and pheromones are species-specific enough in real life on this one planet. Some of them even mean different things to different groups of humans! Now imagine how different they could be on another planet, and that pile of flashcards suddenly becomes VERY necessary.
