The Sound of Drums (2) - S3-E12

Question: How does staring into time vortex cause the constant drumming in The Master's head? Also, why does it cause it?

Socks1000

Chosen answer: As revealed in "The End of Time" it was the President of the Time Lords who put the drumming back in time into the Master's head.

Question: Why are young initiates taken to the Untempered Schism? What purpose does this serve?

Socks1000

Chosen answer: I think that looking into the Untempered Schism shows the young Time Lords infinity. It shows them everything, and it is like a test. If they can resist the urge to grab it and take it all for themselves, then they are worthy to be a Time Lord.

Question: What exactly is the Cruciform?

Socks1000

Chosen answer: The Cruciform has not been confirmed to be a location, a weapon, a ship, or some kind of object. It has only ever been mentioned, never described. All we know is that it belonged to the Time Lords. It must have been important in the Time War because the Daleks wanted control of it.

Question: Why was Lucy so willing to go along with The Master's plan of murder and world domination?

Socks1000

Chosen answer: Because he'd driven her insane by showing her the future and humanity's fate. (There's also the possibility that she might be The Rani in human form, but that's all speculation right now.)
