Gatiss on Gallifrey & Time Lords’ Return
Doctor Who writer Mark Gatiss has given his thoughts on the Doctor potentially finding Gallifrey.
Speaking at the recent Brazil Q&A panel Gatiss said: “Every time you go back to Gallifrey, it starts to make the Time Lords a bit too domesticated. I know that’s why Russell T Davies came up with the whole idea of the Doctor being the last one because eventually if you see them so often they become a bit like a bunch of MPs, whereas if you talk about them as this amazing, powerful force, they’re much more exciting.
Elaborating on whether he’d ever like to pen a story featuring the Doctor’s home world: “I don’t know if I would want to do one. I think the way the Time Lords were represented in The End of Time and The Day of the Doctor was very exciting because we’re seeing them in a crisis and they’re trying to come up with different ways of saving themselves. But I suppose if the Doctor ever does find Gallifrey again, then we might find out more. Who knows…”
