[[WMG:The Timeless Child was originally the Childlike Empress from ''Film/TheNeverEndingStory''.]]

While the official version has Fantasia being saved by Bastian Bux, maybe that isn't what "really" happened. If Fantasia truly was destroyed by the Nothing, then the Childlike Empress could have used the Auryn to wish for an escape. This would have come in the form of a portal to another dimension (the one we see the Timeless Child standing under). She would have no memory of her previous life since that is the cost of using the Auryn. Her seemingly endless ability to regenerate would explain the Empress' longevity.


** However, the vampires and werewolves work in different ways, and (according to the Expanded Universe) the Time Lords would have erased anywhere with as many vampires as Sunnydale from history. No, Doctor Who and Buffy are merely in the same multiverse - with the season 8 comic recording one of the Doctor's rare but not unprecedented transdimensional trips. The entire MarvelUniverse is in the same multiverse, according to various BBC authorised Marvel comics, as well as the {{Transformers}} and GIJoe.

[[WMG: The Master has unlimited regenerations.]]
[[JokerImmunity Not that it'd matter much to him]], but he was revived to fight in the Last Great Time War. The Time Lords threw out the rule book in the War, so if they need a soldier why don't they give him way more regenerations than is normally allowed? Potentially this could mean there are loads of incarnations who fought in the Time War, and loads of incarnations between the new series Masters we don't see a clear cut between.


* This is an excellent theory. It totally makes sense as maybe all timelords borrow DNA [[spoiler: as it completely works for River Song/Melody Pond who has regenerated twice, once being around a homeless man picking up looks from him and again around The Doctor and her parents, picking up traits and looks from them]].

* Suppose Sutekh has no actual appearance, his form is simply your mind trying to perceive something beyond comprehension. When he claimed to be an Egyptian deity he appeared with the appropriate symbolism. When he claimed to be the ultimate evil it changed again. What the Doctor was seeing and what the audience was seeing was two different things. We saw Satan, he saw the Timelord equivalent of an evil god.

Lucy didn't seem too surprised that the Master wasn't squealing in agony over being shot in the heart. The Master had planned his "final" encounter with the Doctor in advance. Lucy would shoot him in his heart, so he could stress out the Doctor, who, having so much else on his mind, would forget that timelords have two hearts. Then, just before he was "burned" by the doctor, he called his TARDIS and left. The way Steven Moffat's mind works, the actual (not a reincarnated version, like in "The End of Time") Master is bound to return.

Because one of the soulless Rei clones could quite easily fit the description of Nighmare Child, Cruciform just means cross-shaped (and Eva LOVES the christian imagery), and yet another Nth Impact would be a pretty good candidate for killing off the Timelord/Daleks. Also, Eva is pretty much the only thing that can stand up to the level of horror and mind screw said to have taken place during the Time War.

He's got brains, and he ''loves'' time travel! The Bane got a hold of some Timelord DNA and used human DNA to fill in the missing parts. This is why he has more trouble regenerating than other Timelords. When the 8th Doctor claims he's "half-human on his mother's side," he is referring to Sarah Jane. He is able to travel back in time to the Gallifrey of long ago by means of something which has not yet been revealed.

Donna and 10.5 are half-human-half-Timelords. 10.5 has Time Lord brain, but can't regenerate. Therefore, it is possible that Donna, who has human brain, can regenerate. Donna as we know her will grow old, and on her death-bed, she will regenerate and grow a second heart, thus becoming a full Time Lord. At the same time, she will regain her memories of the Doctor. At some point during his travels, the Doctor will land in the second half of the 21st century, where new Donna will recognise the TARDIS. After having a few adventures with her, the Doctor will eventually leave her with a piece of the TARDIS so she can grow her own.

[[WMG: The Weeping Angels have an even scarier predator.]]
Their ability to be quantum locked is a defense mechanism, meaning there's something that hunts them. Angels send people back in time, are extremely fast and freeze in place when someone sees them. What could require that sort of defense mechanism? The Weeping Angel predator is a creature with the greatest eye-sight in the universe. It has 360 degree sight, stone-like eyes that never need to blink, able to see clearly from miles away and in all light spectrum. Weeping Angels are indestructible normally, but they're only as durable as stone when you're not looking at them and this predator eats stone. It is ageless(rendering send it back in time useless) [[MightyGlacier and while sluggish, far tougher and more durable]]. The proto-Weeping Angels evolved speed to get away from the monster, but the monster evolved a counter-a sort of natural glue that is sprays in the area, so they are slowed down and it can eat them. So they developed the defense mechanism, hoping that the predator would get bored and leave so it doesn't get hungry waiting.

[[WMG: [[Creator/SachaDhawan Dhawan!Master]] is younger than the last two.]]
*Three main reasons: First, we've only seen him regenerate on-screen ONCE in the entire series, meaning the others could be in any order. [[note]]Although Missy is likely after Simm. Just not necessarily the next one.[[/note]] Second, he doesn't seem to view humans as food. Just as targets. Missy would happily have you for lunch, a notion picked up in the (apparently) previous incarnation. Third, he's using a weapon (the [=TCE=]) that hasn't been seen since the classic series.

[[WMG: The 9th Doctor's presence in the famous pictures was to check on history.]]
He had just come out of a war that wasn't just horrific [[WarIsHell by the toll on life and sanity]], but on the fabric of time and space itself. Checking out historical events he would know about already and may already have been part of was to see if they events were still intact and not changed/removed by the Last Great Time War. The WhoShotJFK trope could be the war shifting the events around.

** Technically the fourteenth incarnation, but close enough.






[[WMG: Jack created the Cardiff Rift.]]
After "The Parting of the Ways", Jack tries to return to the Doctor through his Vortex Manipulator, but ends up in 1869 instead. It's never explained why he ends up then, or why for that matter the Cardiff Rift exists beyond some timey-wimey thing. The first time we see the rift chronologically, however? 1869, where "The Unquiet Dead" sees the rift open enough for the Gelth. And on Christmas Eve. Either a glitch in the Vortex Manipulator had Jack sent to this notable spike in timey-wimeyness. Or maybe he's ''why'' it exists. As a fixed point created by the Time Vortex, Jack's arrival in 1869 created the Cardiff Rift, which later that year was used by the Gelth. Or maybe it has existed since 27 CE because that's when he will eventually be BuriedAlive, and having two Jacks in Cardiff was enough to open it for the Gelth.



[[WMG: Jack Harkness is responsible for the Cardiff Rift in the first place.]]
He's already a ParadoxPerson, but there's at least two versions of himself in Cardiff thanks to TheSlowPath-one that arrives in 1869, and one BuriedAlive from 27 to 1901 AD before being frozen in the Torchwood morgue until 2009. The TimeyWimeyBall ended up opening a rift from this weirdness. It may not be a coincidence that the Gelth emerged around the same year that Jack went back the first time around.



[[WMG: The Time Lock had a Time Key. The Master stole it to get to the end of time.]]
You aren't supposed to get out of the Time War due to being time locked. It's why Rassilon resorted to "[[RealityBreakingParadox destroy all reality]] [[AscendedToAHigherPlaneOfExistence to become transcendent god beings]]". If the Time Lords were able to make a lock, shouldn't they have a key as well? Turns out they did, but the Master stole it. It's how he escaped and ended up in the year 100 trillion. He locked it from the outside because he doesn't want anyone following him. This backfired since he knew that if the Time Lords somehow survived, they would be '''pissed'''. Terrified of their potential wrath, he went to the edge of the universe and became Professor Yana. The time key is somewhere in the year 100 trillion, out of the reach of anyone stupid enough to use it...at least, so long as the Toclafane don't discover it and try to make it work before entropy does them in.

future.


Adam, a character introduced in the episode "Dalek", is an expert in alien technology and meets a lone Dalek survivor of the Time War. The Doctor then takes him to the year 100,000, where he learns a lot about future technology and receives a data port in his forehead. Since he and the Doctor part company on bad terms (The Doctor takes him home and throws him out for trying to profit from knowledge of the future), this will turn him from a short-sighted but basically okay sap into a raving megalomaniac. He will dedicate the rest of his life to defeating the Doctor by recreating the Daleks, whom he knows are the Time Lord's greatest enemy. And that data port in his forehead looks kinda like a third eye if you tilt your head to the left and squint.

Added DiffLines:

[[WMG: There is, [[DeadAlternateCounterpart or at least was]] a Doctor in Pete's World.]]
Given how important the Doctor is to the timeline, why wouldn't there be one in the AlternateUniverse? But how come we never hear of him? The fact Rose does't exist in this timeline may be why. Without her and the Bad Wolf entity, the Doctor died in one of the adventures we've seen or in some alternate adventure created because of the ripple effect. There is a Torchwood Institute in Pete's World; perhaps they were formed in response to a HeroicSacrifice on the alternate Doctor's part. If so the alternate TARDIS might be in storage by them or a possible alternate UNIT, which would give the Meta-Crisis Doctor one.

[[WMG:All incarnations of the Doctor whose numbers are multiples of 6 will be played by actors who have not only appeared on the show before, but share part of their name with one of their predecessors.]]
This is to keep up the pattern established by Six (Creator/ColinBaker) and Twelve (Creator/PeterCapaldi), both of whom were RecastAsARegular and are also the only actors in the role to have a first or last name in common with one of their predecessors. It might be a coincidence... or maybe it isn't...
