6 Reasons To Fear The Return of Doctor Who’s Time Lords

If you haven’t seen the Doctor Who 50th anniversary special, then you might want to stop reading because we’re going to get a bit spoilery.

Ok, still with us? As you know, “The Day of the Doctor” revealed Gallifrey and the Time Lords weren’t actually destroyed at the end of the Last Great Time War. It just looked that way. In fact, they were banished to a pocket dimension and have been there since. The Doctor now has the possibility of finding his people and bringing them back. Recently, Doctor Who writer/actor Mark Gatiss said this might not be a good idea. He’s not alone. Several creators and fans think the Time Lords bring a set of story problems that aren’t worth the trouble and that previous showrunner Russell T. Davies did a good thing by eliminating them in the modern Doctor Who show that began in 2005.

We’ll get to why the return of the Time Lords could be a good thing but first, here are some reasons why the heroic Doctor himself may not want to bring back the society he turned his back on so many centuries ago…

Mark Gatiss Questions Steven Moffat’s Idea Of Gallifrey Returning On Doctor Who

Steven Moffat made some big moves in the Doctor Who 50th anniversary special, The Day of the Doctor. Big moves which included the canon-altering inclusion of the thought-dead Time Lords. While fans had mixed reactions to the idea, it seems frequent Moffat collaborator Mark Gatiss falls squarely on one side of the fence.

Matt Smith and [Secret Guest Star] Didn’t Meet Before 50th Anniversary Special

The Doctor Who 50th Anniversary Special was a sweet love letter to Who fans complete with some delightful cameos from what can only be described as old friends.  It was, in this fan’s opinion, a far more delightful and strong episode than Matt Smith‘s final episode, so if you haven’t checked it out yet, you should. It turns out, one of the most exciting cameos happened under cover of darkness and without the guest star meeting Smith before filming. Spoilers abound after the jump!

Agent of S.T.Y.L.E. – The Alternate Versions of Doctor Who

This year, the 50th anniversary special of Doctor Who, “The Day of the Doctor,” introduced us properly to the War Doctor. This previously unknown incarnation of the hero, played by John Hurt, wore an outfit combining elements of the Eighth Doctor’s with the leather jacket of the Ninth, plus a belt taken from a woman named Cass whom the hero had previously failed to save. “The Day of the Doctor” also featured another version of the hero who had previously only appeared in the novel Summer Falls by Amelia Williams (AKA Amy Pond).

Over the years, there have been other interesting alternative takes on the Time Lord scientist of the planet Gallifrey. So this time around, we’re looking at the “what could have been” and “almost were” versions of the Doctor, along with costumes the character has worn in licensed media. Fan-films and the like aren’t included or we’d be here forever, even if we had a time machine.
