  1. It’s been pointed out by others that the history of the time war should have been written in Gallifreyan which the Tardis doesn’t translate and Clara shouldn’t have been able to read. So what are your thoughts on that?

    • Clara is secretly part Time Lord. So she can read it.

      Joke. I haven’t the faintest. Honestly, though? I’m more bothered by there just being a tome on a plinth in the middle of the library that’s just called “The History of the Time War.” It’s a little schlocky for me.

      • Yeah they clearly just needed some way for Clara to find out the Doctor’s name even if it doesn’t really make sense that it even exists. I mean why does it exist? How long has it existed Who wrote it? The Tardis? The Eight Doctor? And why write it? I don’t think the Doctor needs a historical record of something that was so traumatizing and he probably remembers pretty well. I’m pretty sure he remembers it and if any companions besides Clara (if it’s not written in Gallifreyan) ever stumbled upon it then he’d have to deal with all sorts of questions about it and it’s just…dumb.

        Anyway I’m sure we’ll all be able to preorder it on amazon.com very soon.

  2. I must have been tired watching this episode.
    When I saw the ‘crack’, the first thing that occurred to me was that this was Moffatt finally tying up the end of season 5 and explaining the TARDIS explosion.
    I can’t pretend to completely understand the season 5 wrap up, it was ridiculously complicated, but wasn’t one of the unanswered questions as to why did the TARDIS actually explode?
    Of course I am probably completely over analysing, and this would be a cheap and annoying way to tie it back in any case.

    Really enjoyed the episode by the way, but I am with Matt – I groaned when I saw a History of the Time War book sitting where it could not be missed.
    Nice to see the season is improving as it goes along.
