    Yeah, one of the greatest flaws of NuWho is the Doctor being too central to everything. Time, space, and the universe are apparently very, very small indeed.

    Looks like they were kind of going for a slight Indiana Jones tribute as well. Especially the map scene. Also cool that they've kept Jericho around (Who seemed a bit like a jerk at first when he didn't help Clare when she was in distress), at first it seemed like a one-shot deal but then again but when you've got Kevin Mcnally, why not have him on for a bit longer?


    Also this kind of moves UNIT's development up by a decade, I think it was generally assumed that it was formed after the Yeti attack and the Dalek civil war/Hand of Omega stuff (Most of this is because of WHO's EU I think). Kind of interesting they largely skipped over the Doctor's time there, avoiding the UNIT dating mess and if he came across the Grand Serpent at any point (Or the future version of his TARDIS)

    Well, if so, I'm done with this crap so after 30 odd years they've lost a lifelong viewer.

    TBF the McCoy era was already playing around with the Doctor being somewhat more than just a traveling renegade. One episode even implies that an incarnation of the Doctor (from another universe, or a future incarnation, it's a bit vague) might have been Merlin. (Might have been the inspiration behind River Song's ""I hate good wizards in fairy tales. They always turn out to be Him" joke.)


    Although deleted, there's a line from "Rememberance of the Daleks" that's kind of interesting.

    Davros: In the end, you are merely another Time Lord!

    Doctor: Oh Davros, I am far more than just another Time Lord....

    Yeah, but they never pulled the trigger on any of those thank goodness someone at the BBC back then had a little sense. I recall with the Eight Doctor they wanted him to be an uber special ancient time lord and the Master's bother!

    Yeah, I did not like the way they overcompensated for McCoy's perception as an underwhelming Doctor by suddenly suggesting the Doctor was some awesome mysterious force. That's just not the Doctor, as far as I'm concerned.

He'll just do a 180 and go off in a different direction.
    I agree, I think it will just not be mentioned much after Chibnall leaves. I don't think there was any reference to War Doctor even during Capaldi's seasons, much less after Moffat left.

    I think War appeared in a few flashbacks here/clips and there (Maybe in the Zygon two parter which is a semi-sequel with a pseduo-Moment?) and Twice Upon A Time does mention "The Doctor of War".

    He also appears in Jodie's Matrix blast of memories in Timeless children alongside pretty much everything else.

    Actually, when I was watching the episode, it occurred to me that they can use The Grand Serpent to explain away the discrepancies in the UNIT timeline. We know he can manipulate memory. He is certainly in a position to alter any official documents. Plus it's implied he arranged for personnel to either die or disappear. So yeah, they have an out for that now.

    However, this episode created a few problems of its own. The most glaring is stuffing up the rank Lethbridge Stewart should have held.

    Technically he was more than just another Time Lord. He was Lord President lol.

    They teased it, but they were never going to give a concrete origin to the Doctor anyway. Cartmel himself stated the goal was to bring mystery back to the Doctor. You lose that whenever you veer too much in a given direction (like Chibnall has).
