Yeah, it'd be nice to have a situation like the War Games again, the Doctor is actually scared of his own people.

Re: If the Daleks then why not the Time Lords?

We kinda saw that in The End of Time. After all, if the Doctor wasn't scared of the Time Lords, why then did he grab a gun upon learning they were returning?

No doubt the Doctor learned of the President's plan to destroy the universe, which was the point at which he decided to use 'the moment' to end the war.

Yea, obviously we wouldn't want them appearing every week, but, I can't think of any classic interaction with the Time Lords/Gallifrey that I dislike. I'd enjoy seeing him on Gallifrey or having the Time Lords pulling his strings once in a while

Yeap...love the timelords, love them harrasing the doctor now and again when they want something.......i would love some day to see them come back and just like the present doctor, step back out of the spotlight and back to their roots of custodians of time and space again.

Except for their first appearance (where the Doctor and the War Chief shit themselves at the idea of the Timelords appearing), I find the Time Lords desperately dull.

Every time they appear, it's like a super-powered council committee fill with old people waiting for a prostate exam.

Re: If the Daleks then why not the Time Lords?

If they want to bring back the Time Lords, here is how they could do it. Explain that a handful of Time Lords escaped just before the end. They went back in time and using genetic engineering, over time, cloned an entire new civilization of Time Lords that have been hiding from the universe all this time. After growing in strength, they decide it is time to reassert themselves as the master civilization in the universe. Since they are clones, the show could portray some similarities with the Time Lords from the old Who while introducing some new elements as well. They would not have to behave exactly like the Time Lords of old.

That's what DC did with the Guardians and it didn't make them more interesting.

There's nothing cool about an Omniscient Council of Vagueness.

Uh, no. No one won the Time War. Both sides were defeated by the Doctor.

I dunno. With all the Daleks running around the universe after the Doctor supposedly defeated them, I suppose one could make a case for the Dalek's "victory." At the very least, the Daleks certainly didn't lose the Time War.

From what I've seen of old Who, they were a race of jerks. Only the Doctor, the Master and Romana were interesting.
Seeing as how you cite the Master, jerks can be interesting.
Just normal jerks, like ones from your job. Not the kind who try to blow up half the universe.
Your still including the Master though.

Technically it was a stalemate because The Doctor, The Master & The Daleks still remained. Though I suppose the actual war ended but something of each side survived.

That's a bit like saying that just because Germany still exists, it must not have lost World War II.

The Daleks at the end of the Time War were destroyed but for six individuals: The unnamed Dalek from "Dalek," the Cult of Skaro, and the Dalek Emperor. That they have since rebuilt does not mean they won the Time War.
