Actually thats wrong, we saw the 2 Gallifreyan technicians in the repair shop in 'The Name of the Doctor"

Speaking of overreactions, if all it would take would be one Dalek to lay waste to Acadia, why is there a swarm of them?
Because they love the psychological effect, and they love to blow the crap out of everything they don't actually need. Overpowering force is the Dalek infantry way.
They could probably make a quicker way to exterminate people, but they really seem to love shooting one person at a time and in a way that seems incredibly painful. Daleks are just assholes.

Re: The Last Day

Each Dalek has basically one MO, exterminate all non Dalek life in the universe. So sure maybe one Dalek would have been enough, but all the others were thinking exterminate, exterminate. Not "it's ok another Dalek is exterminating non Dalek life. We can do something esle."

Re: The Last Day

Daleks do not have a concept of "overkill".

Re: The Last Day

Well that's not strictly true. They do have "Maximum Extermination" as used in "The Stolen Earth"

To me, this was a waste of time, budget and anticipation.

Not really. The new series hasn't really gone too much into Gallifrey and its society structure. The classic era made it clear that not all Gallifreyans are Time Lords and the new series has done nothing to contradict that.

The new series established that all gallifreans and Timelords are dead/time locked

Wouldn't surprise me, if the lock gets broken tomorrow.

Re: The Last Day

Last of the timelords seems to be too much of an integral part of the series to go back on. Same as how he was "on the run in a stolen Tardis" before. It's part of what makes the character interesting and vulnerable.

Re: The Last Day

So if not all Gallifreyans are Time Lords, I wonder if not all Gallifreyans can Regenerate?

I always presumed Time Lords where the politicians, professors, doctors, commissioned officers and other top people while everyone else plain GallifrRyan.
