It seems like there are only really two options: Either the Eleventh or Tenth Doctor contacted them all (psychically?), or it was the Moment.

I still like my Tardis idea.

After all, they made a big deal about how the three sonic screwdrivers were essentially the same earlier in the episode. And 'The Eleventh Hour' established that the screwdrivers come from the Tardis console. Its the same Tardis all through time, too.

Re: Who brought the past Doctors to Gallifrey?

^ That is a lovely idea, HoHoHod0, but it makes more sense that to think the early Doctors were brought there. The Tardis for the First and Second Doctors had faulty navigational circuitry, so they couldn't have steered to Gallifrey without help.

Sorry ... what?

I'm just sitting here at my desk saying, "HoHoHod0" over and over to myself and chuckling over it.

Complete distraction!

Again, the Ninth's "For my next trick" seems to emphasize on something.

Sorry, I was a bit ambiguous. I didn't mean to say the Doctor steered the Tardis there, rather that it would be impossible for the Tardis to be steered there, by anyone. Even itself.

We know from 'Name Of The Doctor' that the Tardis had faulty navigational circuits. So the First and Second Doctors' meanderings were not (just) lack of skill at flying the thing. The Tardis, in those days, was inherently unsteerable.

Re: Who brought the past Doctors to Gallifrey?

I took it to be that one of the recent Doctors (likely Matt Smith) told the first Doctor to start the calculations. He likely then told each of the Doctors to come along the journey in order to make sure there were enough TARDISes to make this thing work. They all forgot because the timelines were out of sync or whatever. In fact, I'm sure the Doctor knew that would be the case.

I kind of wonder if he forgot about Capaldi (but Capaldi didn't forget about him, of course, allowing him to choose to come as well to make sure it worked).
