The misterious woman of The End of Time.
The original idea was that this woman would be the Doctor’s mother. He does look quite affected by her presence.
But it was never really confirmed if she actually was the Doctor’s mother.
I vote yes, this is Mummy. How do you vote? Mummy or far too interested Time Lady bystander?
I think it’s his mother.
And I was just struck by how horrible this would have been. He already thought he sent her to her death when he pushed the button to destroy Gallifrey and the Daleks the first time. He’s been mourning the loss of his people and his family for years, and now here he is again, having to do it all over again. Last time he probably didn’t have to look his mum in the face while condemning them all to death, so this time it’s probably that much more horrible. It rips my heart out to think about this. Could you imagine what it would be like to do the right thing when the right thing means you kill your mother, twice?
I am crying all over again… :*(
You are so right TTIMH… It explains so much. The goodbye tour, the pain of the Master finally dying (when I say finally, I mean…well…finally to Ten. He’ll be back, of course, at some point), the explosiveness of his regeneration, and perhaps the reason why Eleven is SOOOOO different than Ten (in my humble opinion).
I think that it was either his mother or Romana. I can never quite make up my mind which, because I love both ideas. Either way, it breaks my heart.
