Sorry if this has been asked/answered before, but I have a question regarding how Time Lords age in their first regeneration. When we meet the First Doctor in An Unearthly Child, he's ~236 hundreds of years old and looks like an old man, but not that old by human standards. Susan, on the other hand, looks like a teenager, and I don't thiiink we're ever told how old she specifically is (though I could be wrong about that). The Doctor says in one episode that he visited the Medusa Cascade when he was 90-years-old and said that he was just a child then.

Do we have any idea (from any sources, be they TV canon or the looser expanded canon) what the aging rate is compared to human aging? Is it similar up until they hit the earlier stages of old age, then it just STOPS, and from then on, the next regenerations pick a look that never ages no matter how long it lasts? Or is it really slowed down so that he would have literally been a child/teen visually at 90? Then I saw that he apparently spent centuries at the Academy, but I'm veeeery unknowledgable about the expanded canon and generally less knowledgeable about Classic Who (though I'm doing my best to remedy that asap). Also, when I was poking at Susan's information, it sounded like she never actually got physically old, despite it being presumably her first regeneration (though that isn't TV canon and thus may be flexible, I dunno).

I was just curious about people's knowledge/thoughts on the matter so I can try to wrap my mind around it, as we don't see much of that "first regeneration" stage in canon.

The Master's election [Aug. 26th, 2012|12:40 pm]
Canon Fodder

I suppose this is more of a general British culture question, though the point is to establish a timeline. My question is when would Harold Saxon have taken office? Apparently the year is 2008, but is there a particular day when the PM would be sworn in/inducted/whatever it's called over there?

Liz10? Beast Below question [Jul. 22nd, 2012|06:42 am]

Why is Liz10 (who is presumably from Earth unless Moffat's not telling us something else) so long lived (over 2000 years old?)?

High Council [Feb. 20th, 2012|10:00 am]
Canon Fodder

Hello all. Wondering if anyone can help with this:

Do we know who is on the High Council in series 1 and 2 of Big Finish's 'Gallifrey'? (Or Inner Council if you're going with that version of events - I'm looking for around five people, I think, not including Romana).

Narvin: yes. Brax: no. Darkel? yes, I think. Valyes? The TARDIS index file says no to Valyes (though perhaps it is not right), but yes to someone called Delox.

Any more for any more?

Stolen Earth/Journey's End Dalek Questions [Feb. 5th, 2012|07:15 pm]

Can the Daleks as seen in the episodes The Stolen Earth/Journey's End fly sideways or upside down? I don't remember them doing so, but I just wanted to make completely sure, as it has been a while since I have seen the episodes in question. Also, knowing around how fast they can fly would be a good idea too. Another thing I am wondering is if their rays are able to blast through concrete or similar materials. All of this info is for a scene in a fic I am writing right now, and it will really affect how the scene works.

Torchwood vs. Doctor Who timeline [Jan. 25th, 2012|01:02 pm]
Canon Fodder

When do the events of Miracle Day happen? I know that they take place over at least a two-month period, but it is when they begin (and end) that I really want to know as it will affect my fic timeline.

You see, I always thought that the "miracle day" itself was on July 8, 2011. That was always on the poster, and I thought that the intention was to have the first broadcast date be the same as the story's "miracle day" (a la Doctor Who sometimes having a momentous day plot-wise be the same as the original broadcast day.)

However, apparently there was a criticism of Torchwood and Doctor Who mixing up timelines in that the events of Miracle Day took place from March to May 2011 instead which would mess with certain events involving Rory, Amy, the Doctor, et al around April 22, 2011 (in other words, why wouldn't have Amy and Rory known about Miracle Day and be affected by it).

So... I'm confused. Anyone? Thank you for any help you can give me!

Can anyone type up for me, the inscription on Charley's copy of Lewis Carroll's Alice Compendium in Zagreus? Specifically, her grandmother's name.

Silurians [Jan. 3rd, 2012|10:46 am]
Canon Fodder

I'm writing something that features the Silurians as shown in the 2010 episodes 'The Hungry Earth' and 'Cold Blood' and I have a couple of questions I haven't been able to find answers to myself  and don't have the episodes handy to watch

1) does canon give the Silurians any kind of surnames or does it only mention their first names i.e. Alaya, Eldane, Restac (or in fact are these thier surnames?)

2) does anyone know if it mentions what they call themselves, since all the online sources I've found indicate that Silurians/Eocenes/Homo Reptilia are all inaccurate/what the humans and the Doctor call them.

Having trouble replying to comments at the moment but I will be reading and thank you in advance for any replies :)

The Master's House [Dec. 6th, 2011|08:28 pm]
Canon Fodder

Has it ever been stated or theorized outside on-air canon what family house the Master comes from? Not the Prydonian chapter. Like, the Doctor's family house is allegedly Lungbarrow. Did anyone say what the Master's is?
