There's someting I've always wondered: If the Doctor is the last time lord, why can't he go back in time and save the other time lords and Gallifrey?

Well the last episode with David Tennant explains it. The one where the Master returns.


Seriously this will spoil a lot if you haven't watched the episode.

You'll be really disappointed.

Go watch the episode first.

I'm serious.

Okay, so It turns out that the Doctor imprisoned the time lords because the entirity (or atleast the majority) of the race, went crazy during the time war with the Daleks and decided that time was something they could do without. Basically they wanted to ascend to a higher state of being, while simultaenously destroying all of time. Therefore the Doctor activated a superweapon (i forget the name, you can look it up) and time locks the war, preventing the Time Lords from ever leaving and completing their mad scheme.

So it's not so much because he can't bring back the Time Lords, it's more because he doesn't really want to.
