Notes: I've had some remarks that it is not clear what this story is about. Hopefully this note will help clarify what is going on a little. The keywords here are 'Time War' and 'regeneration'. We see in the new series that the Doctor holds himself responsible for wiping out the Time Lords along with the Daleks. This is an impression of those crucial moments.
