Hey, I just realized something.
In the first episode of New Who, Nine explains that he’s the last Time Lord and briefly mentions the Time War. But I guess I never realized that this is the first time that this is mentioned. So newer fans (like myself) probably nodded without thinking too much about it. But I bet that a lot of the older fans (the ones who watched Classic Who for years) were probably sitting there like, “Uhhhhh….what!?”
And then there’s all the fans that started with New Who (like us) who eventually go back to the classic episodes and think “wait… the Time Lords were around at one point???”
