Behind the scenes Edit

The Woman Edit

Russell T Davies has stated (in a March 2009 email reprinted in REF: Doctor Who: The Writer's Tale - The Final Chapter, pages 622-623) that the unnamed woman, implied to be a Time Lord, in The End of Time was meant to be the Doctor's mother. However, he has also said that whoever the woman is can be up to judgment, and she could be someone else. Additionally, the depiction of the Doctor's mother in The Comfort of the Good bears a striking resemblance to the Woman in both physical appearance and Gallifreyan dress.
