Re: Doctor Who accused of racism
Clearly the genetics of time lords are far different from that of humans or any other form of life on our planet. The standard dominant/recessive traits that result in many of our features seem to be able to coexist in the gallifreyan genome, exhibiting without intervention from other dominant or recessive alleles. I think of it as the genome of an entire population coded into one super genome that is dormant in the time lord until a regeneration calls upon it to spit out a randomly (or less randomly for certain time lords) generated genome for the new regeneration.
Perhaps it even has a shared psychic link across the entire population and responds to successful or unsuccessful traits so as to be constantly tweaking the population for the greatest possibility of success.
