Hey! There was a middle-aged white woman thrown in here and there too! Laughing

And the middle-aged black TimeLord near the "Untempered Schism" when the Master as a child is "tested".

And there was a black Time Lord in TEOT too. Smile

Romana and K-9 Mark II. Just think they then could make an appearance on the SJA and then we can watch K-9 Mark IIIb match wits with K-9 Mark II. geek

I would like to think Gallifrey will come back and the writers won't feel constrained (as RTD says in Writer's Tale) by the idea of stuffy formal Time Lords. Making them with more diverse personalities would be good and there would ideally be much of the planet and its culture to be explored, even w/o the Time War. I think the Last of His Kind and Lonely God thing had some interest upon revival but has lost gas now and is now limiting to what the show could do. I liked the Doctor more as a renegade punk of Gallifrey than the somber sole survivor. I would like to see a new Romana for example, the Rani, Meddling Monk, or new Gallifreyan characters with some link to the Doctor's past. Heck, what about a regenerated Susan?
Would also be cool to see other 'late model' TARDISes too!

"Time wind" striding cat-people... What's not to love? Have a female join the Doctor on his journeys and I'd be in "cat-girl heaven"! Very Happy

I am reminded of a really mixed up cross-over fan-fic that tried to combine "Doctor Who" with the CBS fantasy-romance drama "Beauty and the Beast" starring Ron Perlman and Linda Hamilton. I never read it or even came across the text; for all I know, it may just be fannish rumor. But the scenario is that Vincent was in actually an infant (cub?) Tharil that somehow ened upon Earth. Sometime after losing Catherine (during the fan detested third season), the Doctor encounters Vincent and reveals Vincent's true heritage. Eventually he uses his "time wind" striding abilities to prevent Katherine's death and the two of them are reunited.

Yeah, rather fan-wankish. Sounds like a vain attempt to disavow Hamilton's leaving the series and achieve a fairy-tale "happy ending". If it exists, I suspect the writing is pretty horrid. Suspect

Sincerely,

Bill

I think it would be cool if a group of Time Lords did survive, but they were all female. I can just picture them going after the Doctor for procreational purposes in their goal to form the New Gallifrey.

Sounds like the entire 10th Doctor's time. Razz

I'm just wondered how Rassilon was brought back....and WHY? It was said he was not so nice a guy....to the point where his own people sealed him away in a big, black tower. confused

What's the old saying? "War makes strange bedfellows"? They may have reasoned despite his other failings, Rassi' was the right person for the job. Besides, Troughton's Doctor admitted several of the "legends" conflicted each other. Some tales stated Rassilon rebeled against the TimeLords' cruelty; others suggested he was the "monster" and the rest had to stop him. These deliberate contradictionsgave the new writers "carte blanc" to imagine what they wished.

Sincerely,

Bill

I still think that the Master was brought back to see if it could actually be done besides the fact that he would be a good fighter in the Time War against the Daleks. When he disappeared that's when the Time Lords turned to Rassilon and resurrected him.
