War Doctor: “I won’t remember this will I?
Eleventh Doctor: “The time streams are out of sync. You can’t retain it, no.”
The War Doctor: “So I won’t remember that I tried to save Gallifrey rather than burn it. I’ll have to live with that. But for now, for this moment, I am the Doctor again. Thank you.”
— The Day of the Doctor
I was actually pretty excited that there were enough Wednesdays in April to include a quote from the War Doctor (8.5) episode. Especially because I really love how this quote explains the “timey wimey” aspect of why the Doctor would not remember what actually happened to Gallifrey. It also gave me a way to reconcile the absence of Christopher Eccleston in the episode (I not so secretly really wished that he would at least have a small cameo moment, but alas, it was not to be).
