time lock means it’s not accessible via the vortex. Pocket universe means you can get there without the vortex.
That sounds like an interesting theory, was that stated explicitly in the canon? Or is that a headcanon? My apologies if I missed something. Do you mean that The Doctor can access Gallifrey now through the painting he technically made of it? As long as he has the right co-ordinates? Like in the 50th. Hence the calculations he’s been doing on the black board! I’m excited now.
The only way I can make it work is if pre-Time-War Gallifrey is still accessible, just dangerous. 9 hints it’s possible in Father’s Day.
That is a good point, and now that you mention it that sounds like a interesting theory ;D Yet I feel like, if this was the canon they would have been more explicit about it ya know? Or maybe they left it purposefully ambiguous for future writers to do what they wanted with it.
I have received a few comments on one of my videos stating that being on Gallifrey in the episode ‘Listen’ (8x04) this season, wouldn’t be inconsistent with the canon of the show. I explained in my review that I thought after the 50th Special, that Gallifrey was now in a ‘pocket universe’ and currently unreachable. As the 11th Doctor states in the 50th, he’s not sure if it even worked at all or when they will be able to find it (The Time Of The Doctor confirmed that it work). I believed that Gallifrey was currently unreachable due to this, or at least hard to find - and that if they were able to find it as easily as they did in the episode ‘Listen’ it would seem inconstant with the previous canon established.
However, a commenter stated that “only the time war [being] in the time lock is not an inconsistency” because if we want to count The Doctor visiting Gallifrey in all of Classic Who, this is the assumption we must make. But, I do just simply disagree, even if the R.T.D era did change a lot of the canon, it did clearly establish that the Time Lock meant The Doctor could not visit Gallifrey whatsoever, even in the past. Is it like this now, what do you guys think?
♦ alright (part 4 of my TGG AU)
'we're quiet a bit dramatic, aren't we?' john said, relief and happiness on his face.
sherlock adjusted his arm a bit, so he could grab his flatmate’s arm. he just smiled at him, relieved that he wasn’t alone when waking up and everything seemed alright at the moment..
♦ in the end (finale of my TGG AU)
after what felt like an eternity for sherlock he was finally able to leave the hospital. unconsciously he grabbed john’s sleeve,who didn’t seem to mind it, when they strode towards the exit..
Can you sympathise with The Doctor? Doctor Who Review - The Caretaker
↳ The Doctor tries to ‘take care’ of Clara in his own weird way. Did you think The Doctor was particularly mean this episode? I didn’t find him to be very pleasant at times. What did you guys think? Do you disagree? Subscribe and/or visit my Tumblr: http://linear-relationships.tumblr.com/ :)
