Notes


This story is the eighth and final story of the main part of Season Thirty Eight (New Series 12) and was written by Chris Chibnall and directed by Jamie Magnus Stone.

Unlike "Spyfall" - the first story of this season - this two-part story has different titles for its two episodes. The first episode is titled "Ascension of the Cybermen", and the second and concluding episode is titled "The Timeless Children".

Jamie Magnus Stone directed both parts of this story which comprised the fifth recording block. He also directed the stories in the first recording block, which comprised the first part of "Spyfall" - the opening story of this season - and "Praxeus" - the fifth story of this season.

Jo Martin reprises her role from "Fugitive of the Judoon" as another incarnation of The Doctor.

Actress Julie Graham, who played the part of Ravio, guest stars. Julie Graham starred in the 2008 and 2010 BBC post-apocalyptic series Survivors as Abby Grant. The series was loosely based on the novel by Terry Nation, who wrote it as an adaptation of his 1975 series. She appeared in one episode of the Big Finish Production Survivors audio series, which continued on from the original series. Julie Graham also played the part of Ruby White in the 2010 The Sarah Jane Adventures story "Goodbye, Sarah Jane Smith".

The beginning of this story has a smooth transition from the short pre-title scene, depicting parts of destroyed cybermen floating in space, into the title sequence, with the scene going through the eye of a Cyber-helmet.

This marks the second time the theme music has been used during an actually story - playing across The Doctor's flashback sequence. The first time was in "The Woman Who Fell to Earth".

The second part of this story used the same kind of pre-title sequence that was used in the second part of "Spyfall" – namely a recap of the preceding episode.

This story’s second episode contains the most extensive use of archive footage in any of the Doctor Who stories or any other media or spin-offs as of 2020.

For the first time in the show's history, discounting full red and full blue from various previous stories, clips from the William Hartnell and Patrick Troughton eras have been shown in colour.

This is the second story of the Thirteenth Doctor's era to feature the middle eight section of the Doctor Who theme during the closing credits, following "The Woman Who Fell to Earth".

The Doctor and her three travelling companions (Graham O'Brien, Ryan Sinclair and Yasmin Khan) arrive at a refugee group just before it is attacked by Cyberdrones.

This story brings to light an account of The Doctor's origins in which, prior to becoming the First Doctor, she had lived many forgotten lives as The Timeless Child. This new thread in the ongoing tapestry brings The Doctor, once again, to the forefront of Time Lord history.

In this new account, The Timeless Child was discovered near a boundary to another dimension or reality by the Shobogan traveller Tecteun, who took her in as her own. After an accident the Timeless Child’s regenerative abilities were attentively studied by Tecteun, and eventually replicated. This is put forward as the true origin of regeneration on Gallifrey. A radical result of this retroactive continuity is that The Doctor, in her earliest lives, was the biological template upon which Time Lord society was founded.

It also offers a new explanation for the pre-Hartnell incarnations - like the so-called ‘Morbius Doctors’ - and continues to push the mystery around the unknown incarnation of The Doctor, played by Jo Martin, who was seen in "Fugitive of the Judoon".

In the 1988 Seventh Doctor story "Silver Nemesis" Lady Peinforte threatened to reveal The Doctor's secrets concerning his role on Gallifrey during the Dark Time. She believed this secret would prove The Doctor's downfall.

During the sequence, when The Doctor broadcasts her memories to escape The Matrix, we witness a flashback through numerous scenes from both eras of the show, featuring each incarnation of The Doctor and several companions and villains. Notably the flashback includes the scene, from the 1976 Fourth Doctor story "The Brain of Morbius", when The Doctor and Morbius are hooked to a machine during a battle of wits. The machine briefly flashes up the former regenerations of The Doctor and several additional faces, then implied to be previous versions of The Doctor (in actuality faces of some of the production crew were used). Philip Hinchcliffe, the producer of "The Brain of Morbius", has been reported as saying that the implication of that scene then, but as they wrote in the twelve-regeneration limit, it became difficult to write that in future stories and eventually became considered that these were in fact faces of Morbius. This scene from "The Brain of Morbius" shown during this story, finally confirms that these were the faces of previous incarnations of The Doctor.

The Doctor informs Yasmin that Cybermen are allergic to gold (see "Revenge of the Cybermen", "Earthshock", "Silver Nemesis", "Battlefield", "Nightmare in Silver" and the Big Finish Productions Sixth Doctor audio story "Last of the Cybermen"). In this story they plan to exploit this weakness with a particle projector.

To help defeat the Cybermen attack, The Doctor has given Graham a neural inhibitor system, which is intended to act against a Cyberman's emotional inhibitor. Yasmin has been given a particle projector, which should project gold particles into the air, as an affront to the Cybermen. While Ryan has a rudimentary force field device, to shield the area when the Cybermen arrive. All three devices are destroyed before they can be used when the Cyberdrones attack the encampment.

The Doctor tells Graham that the Cybermen can be driven mad if their emotions are ‘unsuppressed’ (see "The Invasion", "Rise of the Cybermen/The Age of Steel" and "Closing Time").

Similar to the Cyberdrones, Cyber-heads were previously seen to function without a Cyber-suit, most notably Handles (see "The Pandorica Opens/The Big Bang" and "The Time of The Doctor").

The Doctor refers to the Lone Cyberman acquiring the Cyberium from her (see the previous story "The Haunting of Villa Diodati").

It is revealed that Ashad was denied a full conversion, similar to the ‘rejects’ on Telos that appeared in the 1985 Sixth Doctor story "Attack of the Cybermen".

Ashad is addressed by his guards as ‘Leader’ (see "Revenge of the Cybermen"). Earlier Mondasian Cyber-Leaders appeared with silver side handles rather than the distinctive black. Similar to the converted Alistair Gordon Lethbridge-Stewart, the corners of Ashad's side handles are black (see "Dark Water/Death in Heaven").

The two Cybermen, that accompanying Ashad, use the same voice as the Pete's World counterparts before its change in "The Next Doctor".

The Cybermen's battle cry ‘Delete’ makes a return. It was last heard in the 2010 Eleventh Doctor story "The Pandorica Opens/The Big Bang".

The second part of this story brought another redesign of the Cybermen not long after the warrior-class Cybermen seen in the first part - in the form of CyberMasters - a branch created by The Master with the ability to regenerate.

The Cybermen use transmat (see "Revenge of the Cybermen", "The Pandorica Opens/The Big Bang" and "Nightmare in Silver").

The Master, who appears at the end of the first episode, once again affirms that ‘everything is about to change’ (see "Spyfall") and, as The Doctor suspected, he has somehow escaped from his imprisonment by the Kasaavin (see "Fugitive of the Judoon").

The Master refers to the Great Cyber War, which he claims to have lived through. (see the 1975 Fourth Doctor story "Revenge of the Cybermen" and the Big Finish Productions Sixth Doctor audio story "Last of the Cybermen").

The Master recalls fleeing from Borusa when they were young (see "The Deadly Assassin" and "The Five Doctors").

The Master double-crosses Ashad and kills him as he previously did to a Cyber-Leader in the Death Zone in the Twentieth Anniversary story "The Five Doctors".

An incarnation of The Master is once again instrumental in creating a race of Cybermen (see "Dark Water/Death in Heaven" and "World Enough and Time/The Doctor Falls").

The Master names his Time Lord-converted Cybermen under his command the ‘CyberMasters’. Previously, in "The End of Time", he transformed humanity into what he dubbed the ‘Master Race’. Before that, he named himself ‘Cyber-Master’ while posing as a converted Cybermen in the Big Finish Productions audio story "Master of Worlds" - the fourth and final story in the audio anthology, UNIT: Cyber-Reality.

Incidentally, in the 1988 Seventh Doctor story "Silver Nemesis", Karl (De Flores’s second in command), believed the Cybermen to be ‘the master race’.

The Master and his army of CyberMasters mimic the rallying speech of Rassilon at the end of the last Great Time War (see the 2009/20 story "The End of Time").

When The Master requests an alliance with the Cyberium, he references the television show The Apprentice, claiming he ‘deserves to be its business partner, because he has performed well in all the tasks’, which was a common excuse used to become Lord Sugar's business partner.

The Master reminisces about assassinating the President in the Panopticon (see the 1976 story "The Deadly Assassin").

The Master reveals the truth of the Timeless Child (see "The Ghost Monument", "Spyfall" and "Can You Hear Me?").

The Master reveals that the original inhabitants of Gallifrey were the Shobogans who later genetically altered themselves into the Time Lords thanks to Tecteun's research.

Shobogans is a term which, by their time, had come to be used by a group that lived outside traditional Time Lord society (see "The Deadly Assassin", the Virgin Books' The New Adventures novel "All-Consuming Fire" written by Andy Lane and the BBC Books' The Eighth Doctor Stories novel "The Eight Doctors" written by Terrance Dicks).

The Timeless Child's species are from another reality or dimension that have the ability to regenerate infinitely and continuously change their appearance. Because of Tecteun's research, their DNA was placed into the Shobogans's DNA and thus created the Time Lords.

Tecteun's and the Timeless Child's regenerations mark the first time female to male regeneration has been seen onscreen. However, the first depiction of a female regenerating into a male was in the Big Finish Productions Gallifrey audio story "Enemy Lines". In the case of the Timeless Child multiple regenerations were shown, both female to male and male to female.

The premise of this story fulfils several elements of The Hybrid prophecy from Season Thirty Five (New Series 9).

This is one of eleven television stories to-date in which the TARDIS does not appear at all. The others are: "Mission to the Unknown", "Doctor Who and the Silurians", "The Mind of Evil", "The Dæmons", "The Sea Devils", "The Sontaran Experiment", "Genesis of the Daleks", "Midnight", "The Lie of the Land" and "The Woman Who Fell to Earth".

The Doctor, Ryan and Ethan steal a Cyberfighter to escape from the Cyberman. The Doctor reveals that a Cyberfighter is a class of Cyber-shuttle, which is itself a type of small Cybership. They run on warp drives.

When stealing the Cyberfighter, The Doctor is heard saying that that she used to hot-wire warp drives as a teenager on weekends, though she quickly points out that in her early life on Gallifrey, there were no teenagers, or weekends.

Graham and Yasmin, along with some of the refugees, escape from the Cybermen using the humans' Gravraft, which they later manage to land on a Cyber-Army War Carriership.

When the Gravraft ends up powerless and floating in space Graham and Yasmin reveal that they have experience surviving in the vacuum of space (see "The Ghost Monument").

The Doctor seeks to uphold the rule ‘No humans on Gallifrey’ - echoing the reason why the Fourth Doctor left behind Sarah Jane Smith at the end of the 1976 story "The Hand of Fear".

It is revealed that just one death particle would be able to wipe out all organic life - at least on a planet.

It is revealed in the second episode that the sequences in the first episode, that are apparently in Ireland, are in fact of The Timeless Child.

Graham and Yasmin wear Cyber-suits to disguise themselves as Cyber-Warriors, similar to the gambit Bates and Stratton attempted on Telos in the 1985 Sixth Doctor story "Attack of the Cybermen".

The Eighth Doctor previously uncovered another secret hushed up by the Founders of Gallifrey and the role Rassilon had played in the true origin of the Ravenous. The Doctor hypothesised that Rassilon had invented the myth of their creation precisely to hide his own involvement in the events on Kolstan (see the Big Finish Productions audio story "Day of The Master" - the third and final story in the audio anthology Ravenous 4).

The Doctor is prepared to sacrifice herself using a weapon that cannot be remotely detonated, only for Ko Sharmus to take her place. Previously, in the 2005 story "The Unquiet Dead", the Ninth Doctor offered to light the match which would stop the Gelth for the sake of Gwyneth, who silently refused. Earlier still, Orcini, despite the Sixth Doctor's protests, chose to hand detonate a bomb to destroy Davros' Daleks in the 1985 story "Revelation of the Daleks".

The end of this story also brought about another shift in the current status quo, with The Doctor's companions, Graham, Ryan and Yasmin being returned to the 21st century without The Doctor, for their own protection.

The Doctor returns her companions home in a TARDIS while she prepares to sacrifice herself to destroy her oldest enemies. Similarly, the Ninth Doctor sent Rose Tyler home in the TARDIS as he confronted the Dalek Emperor and his human-converted Dalek in the 2005 story "Bad Wolf/The Parting of the Ways".

The Doctor once again steals a TARDIS in order to run away from Gallifrey (see "The Name of The Doctor", "Heaven Sent/Hell Bent" and the Big Finish Productions Companion Chronicles audio story "The Beginning").

The very end of this story calls back to the cliffhanger endings of a number of Tenth Doctor stories in which the dumbfounded Doctor repeatedly uttered the word ‘what? ’ in response to the events suddenly and rapidly unfolding around him. In this story The Doctor responds to being ambushed by The Judoon aboard her TARDIS by repeatedly exclaiming ‘what? ’ (see "Army of Ghosts/Doomsday", "The Sound of Drums/Last of the Time Lords", "The Runaway Bride", "Time Crash" and "Voyage of the Damned").

The Plot

WARNING: May Contain SpoilersHide Text
The Doctor and Her Travelling Companions
The Doctor and Her Travelling Companions

In the far future, the last of humanity is hiding from the last of the Cybermen, who have hunted them almost to extinction. As a pair of Cybershuttles arrive overhead, The Doctor and her three traveling companions (Graham O'Brien, Ryan Sinclair and Yasmin Khan) arrive and set up the means to protect the humans from a group of attacking Cyberdrones. However, their devices fail, and some of the humans are killed.

As the advancing Cybermen have cut them off from the TARDIS. The Doctor orders her companions to leave with the remaining humans on their spaceship, and get to safety, otherwise, since her companions are human, if they are caught they would be converted into Cybermen. But Ryan and another human named Ethan are separated by the Cybermen's partially cyberconverted leader, Ashad (The Lone Cyberman they encountered in the previous story, "The Haunting of Villa Diodati"). Ryan and Ethan eventually manage to escape by assisting The Doctor in hijacking one of the Cybershuttles, but the Cybermen pursue them in another Cybershuttle.

In deep space Graham, Yasmin and the other three humans Yedlarmi, Ravio and Bescot discover they are traveling through a battlefield surrounded by dead Cybermen. They board an abandoned Cybercarrier, which they believe can take them to Ko Sharmus, a haven which is supposedly home to The Boundary - a portal that can send humans to the other side of the universe where they cannot be reliably followed by the Cybermen. Graham and Ravio investigate and discover that the apparently abandoned Cybercarrier holds thousands of dormant Cyberwarriors just as Ashad and his crew dock their shuttle.

Meanwhile, The Doctor, Ryan, and Ethan arrive on the planet where Ko Sharmus is. However, they discover that Ko Sharmus is a person who helped other humans through The Boundary but remained behind as a ferryman in case others had survived.

Back in space Ashad and his Cybermen begin drilling into the Cyberwarriors and starts to resurrect them, while Graham and Ravio return to the control deck. Ashad leads the warriors to the control deck as Yasmin manages to contact The Doctor, warning her that the Cybercarrier is almost there, but it is carrying thousands of Cyberwarriors.

On the planet below Ko Sharmus shows The Doctor, Ryan, and Ethan The Boundary, which appears as a rippling sheet of energy. It unexpectedly clears, and The Doctor watches in horror, as on the other side of the portal the ruined capital city of Gallifrey is revealed. Then without warning The Master leaps through the portal and informs The Doctor that she should be afraid and that ‘everything is about to change forever’.

The Master persuades a reluctant Doctor to join him on Gallifrey, where he then forces her to enter The Matrix. There he shows her the secret history of Gallifrey and reveals that the Shobogans, not the Time Lords, were the original species on the planet. One of them named Tecteun, a space explorer, was the first to leave Gallifrey and spent an untold amount of time searching the stars where she eventually encounters an abandoned child. Taking pity on the child, Tecteun adopted her and discovered the child had the ability to regenerate. After studying The Timeless Child for many years (and forcing several regenerations to occur), Tecteun after grafting that capacity tests it on herself and successfully regenerates - so enabling the Shobogans, residing in the Citadel, to be transformed into Time Lords.

The Master then reveals that The Doctor is ‘The Timeless Child’ and that Tecteun and the child were inducted into a clandestine organisation called The Division - the details of which have been redacted from The Matrix. The Doctor's memories were subsequently erased, prior to the childhood she remembers.

Leaving The Doctor trapped in The Matrix, The Master lures Ashad to Gallifrey and shrinks him with his Tissue Compression Eliminator, taking the Cyberium. With its knowledge, The Master creates a race of infinitely-regenerating Cybermen, using the bodies of the Time Lords, which he plans to use to take over the universe. Meanwhile in The Matrix, The Doctor sees a vision of one of her incarnations that she encountered in "Fugitive of the Judoon" - who gives her the means to escape by overloading The Matrix with all of her memories from her past regenerations.

On board the Cybercarrier, Bescot is killed, while Graham and Yasmin successfully hide from the invading Cybermen in empty Cyber-armour. They subsequently save the lives of Ryan, Ethan, and Ko Sharmus from the Cybermen forces sent to the planet by Ashad. The group gather and agree to go through the portal to Gallifrey. There they find The Doctor, who with the help of her companions, discover Ashad's miniaturised body. It is then that they learn about the ‘Death Particle’ which is capable of destroying all organic life on a planet. This particle is still inside Ashad’s miniaturised body and despite being miniaturised it is still deadly to all organic life. The Doctor and her friends blow up the Cybercarrier, destroying Ashad's army in the process and foiling his plot to rebuild the Cyber-Empire.

Finding unused TARDISes, The Doctor programs one to take her allies home. The Doctor then takes one of Ko Sharmus' explosives and attaches the miniaturised body of Ashad, still containing the Death Particle, to the explosive and sets off to confront The Master. However, when she encounters The Master and the Time Lord-Cybermen hybrids (whom The Master calls 'CyberMasters'), and despite being goaded by The Master to detonate it, she is unable to do so. But Ko Sharmus appears and takes the explosive, as penance for failing to suitably hide the Cyberium. The Doctor manages to escape in another TARDIS as the explosion consumes Gallifrey presumably destroying The Master along with the hybrids.

The Doctor's allies arrive on contemporary Earth in their TARDIS, while the TARDIS, that The Doctor borrowed, lands near her own and she enters it relieved that everything is in order. But as she prepares to take off, she is arrested by a Judoon and teleported to a prison located inside an asteroid.
