there are a lot of posts around about the eighth Doctor today. it is good. because he is the best Doctor. if you travelled into every universe in the multiverse and studied all the variations of Doctor their versions of the show ‘Doctor Who’ have produced, this universe’s version of the eighth Doctor would be the best one overall. I know this because I did this research myself, personally.
wow this science is amazing and very accurate, thanx

In “Lungbarrow” fish and a kind of fruit called “magenta” are also mentioned!
Ooh, I’d forgotten that. Thanks!
Anonymous asked: I'm writing a fanfic that briefly mentions a flashback on Gallifrey and I don't want to completely butcher Gallifreyan mythos. Do you know what Time Lords usually ate and any customs or rituals involved in dining? Thank you if you're able.
A lot of the time, Gallifreyans only eat food pills, which look quite like smarties. They seem to taste a little plain and probably only give all the nutrients needed for survival. Time Lords seem to enjoy sterilised food in general - since going outside is very rare and they dislike any contact with aliens, they probably hate the idea of letting anything “contaminate” them. Sweets are probably very rare on non-existent, considering Andred’s reaction to being offered a jellybaby (and here’s a gif of it, just because it’s adorable).
On the other hand, Time Lords do seem to eat real food sometimes. In Gallifrey: Emancipation, we get to hear a formal Time Lord dinner, were siealak (I have no idea how that’s meant to be spelt) is eaten. We also learn that some Time Lords are interested in cuisine and different ways to prepare meals over the dinner, so presumably not all Gallifreyan food is quite as boring as the food pills. Food for formal dinners is probably very fancy. And as for drinks, wine seems to be quite common on Gallifrey.
Oh! And the Doctor has a food machine in his TARDIS which produces things that look a bit like protein bars but can taste like whatever you want (depending on the numbers you put into the machine), so there are probably a few of them on Gallifrey too.
And there are a few more examples of Time Lord food here.
