Quote of the Season


 'If you're seeing this, you've been to Gallifrey. When I said 'someone' did that, obviously I meant... I did. I had to make them pay for what I discovered. They lied to us. The founding fathers of Gallifrey... Everything we were told was a lie. We're not who we think. You or I. The whole existence of our species, built on the lie of the Timeless Child.'

The Master
(Spyfall)
