The Trial of a Time Lord 13-14 (aka The Ultimate Foe) - S23-E4

Corrected entry: Does the Inquisitor have the authority to tell the keeper of the Matrix to take anything he needs to repair the Matrix? And if anarchy has broken out on Gallifrey, why would its repairs take priority?

Correction: It is implied that she is in control of the space station. More importantly, the Matrix is the key to Time Lord power. In the episode, the Master cites his control of the Matrix as justification for ruling Gallifrey. Restoring it would be the first step toward restoring Time Lord power.

The Trial of a Time Lord 13-14 (aka The Ultimate Foe) - S23-E4

Corrected entry: The first time the 2nd Mr. Popplewick refers to the 1st Mr. Popplewick, he calls him the 'Very Junior Mr. Popplewick'. Then, for the rest of the scene he is simply referred to as the 'Junior', not the 'Very Junior'. Then the 2nd one refers to himself as a SENIOR clerk, implying there are two of them. So why say the 'Very Junior'?

Correction: They are meant to be confusing.

The Trial of a Time Lord 13-14 (aka The Ultimate Foe) - S23-E4

Corrected entry: The Doctor states that Gallifrey has no crown jewels, but here are a few items we have seen: 1 - The sash of Rassilon 2 - The staff of Rassilon 3 - The crown that gives the President access to the Matrix. 4 - The coronet of Rassilon (although this may have been lost.).

Correction: The term "crown" implies royalty. Gallifrey is ruled by presidents rather than kings and queens. Therefore the relics of Rassilon don't count, as he wasn't a king as such. The Doctor is splitting hairs, of course, but then the Sixth Doctor was a very pedantic incarnation.

The Trial of a Time Lord 13-14 (aka The Ultimate Foe) - S23-E4

Corrected entry: In episode 13, Glitz refers to the bronze coloured metal that decorates the court room as Maconite, saying it is very valuable. But in episode 14, he refers to a Maconite overcoat, meaning a form of restraint. The question is, why would you make straight jackets out of valuable metals?

Correction: I think the Maconite he's referring to is actually a type of wood; therefore the 'Maconite Overcoat' would be a coffin.

The Doctor: You can't rule the world in hiding. You've got to come out on the balcony sometimes and wave a tentacle or two.



(Part 4) After Omega takes off his mask and looks in the mirror, when he sees that his physical body doesn't exist he puts his mask back on and screams, but when he shouts, "If I exist only by my will, then my will is to destroy," Omega's mask pops up off his face, and we can see the actor's blackened face as he shouts the last bit of his dialogue.



The first thing the Third Doctor does on-screen is collapse out of the TARDIS, which is also the last thing he does in that incarnation.
