** In the revival series, The Doctor is unable to return to his home world of Gallifrey, as in the backstory he wound up destroying it to end the Last Great Time War. As of the 50th anniversary special "The Day of the Doctor", [[spoiler: he actually ''saves'' his homeworld, but doesn't know this for centuries; moreover, once he knows, he has no idea ''where'' it is now. In the Series 9 finale, which aired two years after the special, he ''finally'' returns to Gallifrey for what turns out to be a heartbreaking homecoming]].
