“And on the continent of Wild Endeavour, in the mountains of Solace and Solitude, there stood the Citadel of the Time Lords. The oldest and most mighty race in the universe.”

Now that was a very beautiful description of a part of the Doctor’s home planet. We’ve seen parts of Gallifrey over the last 50 years, bits and pieces that sometimes made us all drool (The Five Doctors) and sometimes made us all frown (The Arc of Infinity) and the last time that we got a glimpse of Gallifrey was in The End of Time Part Two towards the very end of the Time War.

The Citadel was in a catastrophic state, dead Daleks and their ships littered the outside of the Citadel, it’s protective dome was punctured and shattered and the inside seemed to be crumbling down around the Time Lords as they desperately tried to escape their Time Locked fate.

But patience, it seems, pays off, and the BBC has released a photo on their official Doctor Who Facebook page of the Citadel of the Time Lords before it was attacked. Before The Moment was released by the Doctor, before Davros’ ship fell into the jaws of the Nightmare Child and possibly before the Fourth Doctor ignited the fires of war by trying to avert the Daleks’ creation.

You can  view it below. Beware.

The Name of the Doctor - Time Lord Citadel

Doctor Who Series 7: Gallifrey


The caption underneath the picture merely states ‘Gallifrey-a very long time ago’ but how long exactly? And when will this feature in Doctor Who, will it be in The Name of the Doctor or the 50th anniversary special in November? All the BBC is saying is: soon

Answers on a postcard please!


What happens when an eight year old kid watches the 1993 repeat run of Planet of the Daleks? He pretty much ends up here writing about the show that grabbed hold of him and never let go!
