Dear fellow Whovians, did we ever find out who the lady in the picture was? I got it in my head that it was the Doctor's mother, but I can't decide if I made it up or not...

Help appreciated!

btw screen cap is from either "The sound of drums" or "the last of the time lords"

She was created as the Doctors Mother, and that is the role she was told she would be playing, however Russel T Davies, always refuses to acknowledge the question, saying that the character is ambiguous enough to allow any interpretation of the character as any trustowrthy Female time lord, such as Susan foreman, her mum or Romana. (people think its Dr's mother as she helps him from having to choose who to kill, and helps him out by appearing to Wilf) her name is 'The Woman' in a similar fashion as 'The Doctor' and 'The Master'

Hope this helps

Susan? I've never heard that theory before, Elaborate?

Its the Doctors granddaughter :) The first on screen companion, and thought to be an actual Gallufreyan as well as his granddaughter (she describes Galifrey as the Doctor does later) and obviously being a timelord who knows what she could look like next time he sees her (she stays in london in the 22nd century in the tv series) so theres a theory it could be her, still a relationship of the doctor :)

Personally I like to believe the wife theory.
When The Doctor is saying goodbye to Wilf at Donna's wedding he mentions the woman and the Doctor looks at the married Donna, It kinda hints at it.




We need answers dammit.

ill try to find you a link to the page, but i remember reading in an article that on the script notes for that scene it had something like

"The Doctor says Goodbye to Wilf and mentions The Woman..he looks to Donna, to her ring, and to her parents, before his eyes travel to the far away stars"

Even at that scene they had it wrote that she could be anyone, although, i agree, i do like the Wife theory but i also like the mother theory lol

What do you make of the 50th anniversary?
User avatar #9 to #7 - supercookster (02/18/2013) [-]
I think it has the potential to be pretty sweet, especially since they're bringing the 3 doctors who have dies, back by CGI. also glad that Eccleston seems to be reconsidering it aswell :)
User avatar #11 to #9 - AbsentMinded (02/18/2013) [-]
Are they bringing back 1?

"The 50th anniversary special, to be broadcast in November, will use studio trickery to resurrect the first three Doctors - William Hartnell, Patrick Troughton and Jon Pertwee - in brief flashback scenes"

Ever since I heard about it, I've been waiting for an episode where they meet again!

Thanks! Makes it clearer! :)

Let's go through this scientifically.
The first Doctor is old. (No offense.)
The woman is old (No offense.)
She appears to be about the same age as the Doctor.
Eliminating daughter and mother with one sentence.
Conclusion:
The woman is his wife.

You're pretty thick. It's like you just said "			****		 regenration!". The Doctor's mother could also have regenerated to look slightly younger. Not to mention the time around when Gallifrey was time locked and the doctor ended the war. Her age has nothing to do with her identity.   
   
 MFW realising how old this is after writing that.

But timelords regenerate...
User avatar #29 to #28 - bannedfartoooften (03/20/2013) [-]
What does that have to do with anything?
#30 to #29 - lockhart (03/21/2013) [-]
Well, suppose that it is his daughter, but she hasn't regenerated in a long time, whilst the Doctor has regenerated. She would then appear to be older than her father.

If it was his wife, same story.

If it was his mother, guess what? Same story.

What I mean is that the age that a time lord looks doesn't really matter, since they may be in different regenerations.

No, the first Doctor was old.
His daughter would look about thirty to forty.
His mother is a possibility.
#32 to #31 - lockhart (03/23/2013) [-]
Why would she look "thirty to forty"?

The first doctor was old, and he still is, he just doesn't look it. So why would his daughter/mother/wife?

Are you thick?
They traveled FORWARDS in time.

Yeah okay, talking sense doesn't seem to be working so let's leave it.

I feel like it's either the Doctor's mother, Wife, or daughter.
One of the three girls that the Doctor would have the biggest impact on, she tried to buy The Doctor more time obviously by being against the purge of all life, so she could let the Doctor fulfill his dream (Which makes me believe that it's more intent on motherly love, but you also have to think, the time war started from the 8-9th regeneration, which means the Doctor's mother would most likely have used ALL of her regenerations by now, unless forced to stay alive by the Time Council.)

He seemed to have A LOT of compassion toward Jenny(His biological clone daughter) More than River Song(His wife), which leads me to believe that he has a MUCH more compassionate pull towards his offspring, rather than his lovers. With that being said, it seems possible, in my mind that the order of most likely would be
1.His Daughter.
2. His Original Time Lord Wife.
3. RiverSong.
4. His Mother.

So many things wrong with that show. It was the Doctors Mother, pretty sure, but RTD never discussed with Stephen Moffett the long term plan and nothing has been done since.
The whole "last of the Time Lords" thing needs to be resolved. He was not the last until Doctor Nine...universe reboots, alternate timelines, etc, and we can't fix the Time War?
50th anniversary better be about more than a lame retread of Hitchikers Guide to the Galaxy...where the question and answer can't both be known...(look up '42' if you don't know what I'm talking about.)
#21 - tardiswheeeee (02/19/2013) [-]
I'm pretty sure the general consensus is she's the Doctor's mother
