Bah, where's the fun in that?
It's all true, I tell you. We just don't understand how it all fits together yet. It's worth reading Cold Fusion though.
There are a lot of reasons to read Cold Fusion
, beyond what it says about the pre-Hartnell Doctors.
Really, I'm just a sucker for the relationship between the Doctor and Patience. She's the Doctor's Mellow Pixie Dream Girl. (She's Mellow rather than Manic, but she fits all of the other characteristics of the MPDG,) And she meant so much to him that he was willing to let Omega win and the universe end in The Infinity Doctors
if it meant he could spend eternity with her.
