How much do you want to bet that John really was the one that bruised Dean’s wrists like that? Sonny’s met plenty of boys that came from bad situations, abusive homes, the pushed aside, forgotten, lonely, he’s seen it all. He’s learned to read these kids, because, hell, that’s his job, and it’s what he does best. Of course the Deputy didn’t bruise Dean like that, that’s just the baseline question. That’s the trick: ask a question you know the answer to, and use that reaction as a grounds to judge their next answers. What, your old man? Instead of laughing as heartily as before, Dean turns his face and eyes away, opened mouthed his smile falters a little, and (look closely) worried in his raised eyebrows and creased forehead. Bingo. Well just to be sure, Then how did ya get it? Well, Dean’s got a story, one he knows Sonny will never believe, better to be outright uncooperative then start talking about his dad and all that touchy-feely crap. Sure they’d been hunting a werewolf at the time, so there’s some truth there… He clenches his jaw around the lie. Werewolf? That’s new, Sonny had never heard an excuse like that one before. And it’s not the truth, but it seems like that’s the best he’ll get for now. Okay.

You know what would be amazing? If this fantastic woman became the next companion. Just an ordinary plain girl with asthma an 4s scarf. Just imagine her and Capaldi flying around time and space. No romance. No stupid banter. Just good. old fashioned. Fun.
If feel like she’d lose her inhaler a lot and then Capaldi would get into a lot of trouble trying to find it and eventually he’s just keep like ten inhalers in the TARDIS
I think this is one of the most beautiful things in the special.
This is not even on the meta “Oh my God, it’s Tom Baker!” thing. Not really. It’s about the hope this gives for the Doctor.
The Curator is, IMHO, the last incarnation of the Doctor. He’s done all he can, seen all he can see. Now he’s Sherlock Holmes as a Bee Keeper. Instead of retiring from the action-packed life to being, like, the President of the restored Galifrey, he’s retired to Earth— his adopted home.
This is one last trip for him. It’s an extended version of the last twenty minutes of Journey’s End for him. Just think about how long he’s been in this form. He most likely regenerated into Tom Baker from Planet of the Spiders. So how long has he lived? Eleven has lived for two hundred years in his current incarnation without any real visible change in appearance. It’s possible the Curator has spent millennia in this incarnation.
And he’s a Curator. He collects things from the past. He remembers. He’s perfectly content not dashing about any longer. I like to think he watches the things his past self does, recalling the good times. He looks in on his companions in their own times. Since he’s on the slow path now himself, he can visit the Ponds without risking the destruction of the timeline. He and Jack and Barbara and Ian can meet up and laugh about watching the world pass them by very, very slowly.
The Curator is the Doctor’s reward for all he’s done to keep the universe safe.
WHOVIANS WHO DIDN’T LIKE THE 50TH:
To those of you complaining that the End of Time’s ending no longer makes sense, I would like to point out that it, in fact, does. The above picture is a screenshot of the Master’s page in regards to the end of time. You can read the full page here: [x]
First things first, the Master and the Doctor destroyed a link between Earth and the then thought to be time-locked Gallifrey. A LINK. Not all of Gallifrey, as I’ve seen a few posts claiming. This sent them, and potentially the Master as well, “back into hell” of the final day of the Time War.
As far as the council knew, it WAS the final day of the time war. The council, as you might have noticed, was not in this episode. Probably specifically for this reason. They were too busy securing a safe escape for themselves through the White-Point Star. AND I QUOTE FROM THE EPISODE, "The High Council is in emergency session - they have plans of their own." THIS LINE WAS VERY MUCH INTENTIONAL. In fact, the whole story line of the Master and the White-Point Star link could easily have gone down before the planet was stashed away by the doctors. In fact, that story line could run parallel to the Doctor trying to decide whether or not to destroy Gallifrey.
Now there are some saying, “BUT THE GUILT HE FELT WASN’T EVEN REAL.” No, it was real. As was stated in the episode, when they reentered their own time streams, the War Doctor and Ten individually forgot. And even if Eleven were to forget, Clara’s timeline was not changed, and therefore she would easily be able to remember and fill the Doctor in. It’s also why Eleven didn’t remember when he ran into Ten - because to his memory as Ten, it hadn’t happened to him. Getting back to the guilt, when the War Doctor (or 8.5 as some are calling him) woke up as nine, his planet would be gone. The last thing he would have remembered before crossing into the time streams would be trying to decide. His planet and all the Daleks are gone and only he remains, just as the Moment told him would be his fate if he chose to burn Gallifrey. And what can he find of his home? Nothing. So, naturally, he would assume that he chose to do it and that he killed his people, thus triggering the guilt in Russel T. Davies’ storyline.
TLDR: MOFFAT DID NOT IGNORE THE END OF TIME. PLEASE STOP.
SORRY. REBLOGGING MYSELF TO ADD SOMETHING.
Immediately after “The High Council is in emergency session - they have plans of their own.” the next line is, "Their plans have already failed. Gallifrey is still in the line of fire."

hOW IT SHOULD HAVE HAPPENED
All those years burying you in my memory. Pretending you didn’t exist. Keeping you a secret, even from myself. Pretending you weren’t the Doctor when you were the Doctor more than anyone else. You were the Doctor when it wasn’t possible to get it right. But this time…You don’t have to do it alone.
