A lot of people replied with pretty valid explanations of that scene. I’m over it… but I appreciate the desire to educate. :-)
Gallifrey doesn’t have a blue sky. The planet the barn is on did (in Day of the Doctor). That wasn’t Gallifrey.I had the same thought. It’s just driving me nuts! Talk of time lords in training and the implication of it all is just sooooo troublesome.
(I have trouble trusting Moffat’s ability to maintain coherence.)
Are we all just going to ignore the fact that Gallifrey has supposedly been time locked and inaccessible since the time war… yet Clara somehow visited the Doctor as a kid in that same time locked planet?
Sometimes you need to remind yourself that you were the one who carried you through the heartache. You are the one who sits with the cold body on the shower floor, and picks it up. You are the one who feeds it, who clothes it, who tucks it into bed, and you should be proud of that. Having the strength to take care of yourself when everyone around you is trying to bleed you dry, that is the strongest thing in the universe.
I absolutely needed to read that.
