How did jack become The Face of Boe and how did he die when he can’t now and is Rex going to be fixed

When the Doctor tells River her his name

Who blew up the TARDIS

This prophecy still needs to be explained
"On the fields of Trenzelor, at the fall of the Eleventh, when no living creature can speak falsely or fail to answer a question will be asked—one that must never be answered. And Silence must fall when the question is asked. Doctor who?"

Who Clara Oswin Oswald is and how she is able to die and end somewhere else in time and space

Who is the The Shopkeeper from SJA.

Thoughts anyone or are some of these going to float

The Doctor telling River his name thing is likely to be explained at the same time as the Trenzalore thing, speculated at the 50th, who knows. Likewise the Clara thing, that mystery will hopefully be solved in series 7b but more likely it'll carry on into the 50th. Unlikely we'll find out anymore about Jack being the Face of Boe and seeing as SJA is finished now we'll never know about The Shopkeeper,he's just The Shopkeeper.

Don't even get me started on who blew up the TARDIS...

Could there be a message in there?

On the fields of Trenzelor, at the fall of the Eleventh, when no living creature can speak falsely or fail to answer a question will be asked—one that must never be answered. And Silence must fall when the question is asked. Doctor who?
Pure guesswork

Jack isn't definitely the face of Boe, Russel T Davies never actually confirmed it, he wants the joke to continue apparently.

One other question that still remains unanswered...


How come Amy couldn't remember the Daleks?

I thought that was explained by the crack which made her forget.

And as for Jack - I'm sure Russell has said he's the face of Boe. If he's going to live for millions of years something is going to happen to his body. We know he ages so why can't his head expand and limbs wither?

Oh yeah... They blew up the TARDIS, didn't they?

</forgot about that plot point no-one seems worried about these days despite being posed as a question nearly two years ago>

It was in Human Nature because it was in the original book version, where else is there a Red Balloon?

I can't remember them all now, but behind Amy at her wedding, she had one in a comic, and I'm pretty sure there were more in the show too, there was a whole thread about it last year

The clown in The God Complex was holding a red balloon, and a similar one was given to the child at the end of The Rebel Flesh.

When the Doctor tells River her his name
May be addressed, probably won't be. Personally, I don't think it's required - it was a teaser that hints at the future intimacy between River and the Doctor. Now that that mystery has been unravelled, I don't think it's as significant.

Who blew up the TARDIS
The Silence. Although we don't really know how. There are a lot of threads on this topic alone.

How come Amy couldn't remember the Daleks?
Stop that, you.

It was written on his cot?

Doesn't fit with what the Doctor said about there only being One Time he could tell People his name.

If it was on his Cot then anyone who wandered into the room it was kept and could read Gallifreyian would know it.


No, River finding out the Doctors name will be part of the Fields of Trenzalore story.

Gallifreyian wouldn't translate, and with no Time Lords left no one else could read it?

I think the one time a Timelord can reveal his or her true name to another is during a marriage service, to their new spouse. That's why I say they aren't actually married yet.

The Doctor's not popped the question yet because he knows that as long as River doesn't know his true name she won't be heading to the library.

Maybe the question on the Fields of Trenzalore will be "Doctor Who"? He won't be able to lie and he won't be able to avoid answering the question. He'll fall because he knows once she knows his true name he won't be able to stop River from making that trip to the library.

On the other hand, isn't that a bit too obvious for the Moff?



I hope the resolution to this is a good one, but in the meantime the speculation is fun.

In Torchwood series 2, wasn't there an invasion that was never touched on again. The people with the fleshy computer arms. Didn't they say the invasion had already started, as if it would become an arc, and it was never touched apon again?

The Doctor probably just dealt with it offscreen.

Or we could still see it in a future episode of DW.

Yeah wasn't that invasion story all part of why Jack's brother was after him? It was a very interesting storyline that never continued. It's been years now since I saw it, so memory might be smudging. I believe they lived on the silver devastation (where the Master was found according to Utopia) and some alien baddies came in and blasted the place up. After the fighting Jack said he looked for Gray but couldn't find him, Gray was still alive however and blamed Jack for not rescuing him or something. That did seem to be the smaller part, and the big bad aliens coming seemed like it would be the bigger part to the storyline, but it never got followed up. Perhaps that was going to be where series 3 went after Gray was foiled, but since they never got a proper series 3, then it was forgotten about? (The whole 456 story Children of Earth was rather excellent though).
We also never got to find out any more about Gray at all either, or his time agent friend (spike from Buffy). Maybe the rest of their stories were meant for series 3 too. It seems a shame that whole story never got told.

I think the previous Poster was refering to the Episode Sleeper which AFAIK had nothing to do with the Grey Storyline.

Oh- also......

Jack ages. He said he saw some wrinkles appearing at one point. That was after a couple of thousand years (he was buried under ground). So- after a few million or so he gradually 'evolved' into the big head in the jar.

I believe the whole "who blew up the tardis" question was meant to be saying that there are other baddies out there who want the Doctor dead. Who we then found out in the next series were the Silence.

Amy didn't remember the Daleks because that part of the past had been wiped from existence at the time we were watching (through the cracks). Not sure if she ( ant the rest of the world) is supposed to rememeber them now? I hope they don't, as human knowledge of aliens should be kept minimal (just UNIT, certain parts of government etc) in our own time. A huge alien invasion every week gets a bit boring, and then the show has to do one better every time or it really gets boring.

Those are my interpretations to the answers to those questions. I'm sure others may well have different answers too, but I believe this is feasible, The rest of the answers, I believe, are still to come next year, in the adventures to come.
