GALLIFREY GALLIFREY GALLIFREY
When it was first hinted that the 50th would be about the Time War, I had a flicker of hope. Maybe, just maybe, Moffat would fix everything and change the Doctor’s horrible destiny. As the episode unfurled, the tiny flicker grew bigger and bigger. I am beyond happy with The Day of the Doctor. It was everything that I wanted and more, it was everything that I didn’t know I wanted (like Clara on a bike – I fell in love) and everything I could never have imagined (like Gallifrey standing, GALLIFREY LIVES). Moffat fixed everything, he fixed the continuity, he fixed the Time War and the fall of Gallifrey, he fixed the Doctor’s guilt and his pain at being the last of the Time Lords, he fixed the deaths of millions of innocents and the loss of an entire planet and civilization - the Doctor’s planet, his people.
It was, indeed, the Day of the Doctor, of the man who doesn’t run away, the man who saves worlds and leaves hope in his wake, the man whose promise was to “Never cruel or cowardly. Never give up. Never give in.” I was always conflicted about the idea that he would choose to burn his own people, when the core of the Doctor is that there is always another option to violence, there is wit, hope and friendship, clever plans and second chances. The Day of the Doctor was all about that, about who the Doctor is and who he should never stop being.
"I dream about where I’m going." She always laughs at that. "But you’re not going anywhere - you’re just wandering about." That’s not true. Not anymore. I have a new destination. My journey is the same as yours, the same as anyone’s. It’s taken me so many years, so many lifetimes, but at last I know where I’m going, where I’ve always been going.
This is possibly the most perfect quote in the history of Doctor Who (and there are many that I love), because Moffat managed to turn the destruction of Gallifrey into something beautiful, a lesson for the Doctor to realize that he should stop running for a while and pop back home, go right back to the start. He has a home and a family, and I can’t wait to see the Shining World of the Seven Systems in all its glory.
