Woman Time Lords can control the way they will look when they regenerate, while male Time Lords cannot. This was established in Classic Who, when Romana regenerated.
Also, the Doctor wanting to be Ginger is not about the hair color. In Gallifrey, the only ones to have red hair were the people called Heroes which were beings who were time-sentient (meaning they could see all of the time at the same time). So I doubt they will ever make him ginger.
Okay, so we all know that River Song’s real name is Melody Pond. And, that the only reason why she went on to call herself River Song is because in Let’s Kill Hitler the Doctor reveals that that is what he calls her.
The Doctor says the name you choose is like a promise.
And I think that day because of whatever he whispered in her ear as he was dying, she chose that name and made her promise.
The promise to be his River Song.
lil bro was annoying me, so I told him to go make his own TARDIS console room…
we’ll see how things go…
New Who : Companions that never were.
“Doctor? What did the skinny guy say?”
“He said, ‘I just went to get coffees for the Doctor and Amy. Hello, River.’ ”

#my favourite part about this #is that this means an iteration of clara lived in gallifrey as a native gallifreyan #and we know she remembers all the lives she lived; all the doctors she interacted with #which means! actual living memories of gallifrey! existing in the mind of someone not notoriously close lipped like the doctor! #gallifrey mythos! gallifreyan everyday life! gallifrey baller buckled velvet dress swag fashion! #!!! #doctor who #so in love with the integration of the old footage ah (okayophelia)
And did anyone else realize—First Doctor footage in color! That’s really cool.
We are awaiting only one more participant

are you kidding me
“What I did was in the name of peace and sanity.”
“I know. But not in the name of the Doctor.”
Guys. It’s not 12. It’s 8.5. 11 knows who this is. It’s gotta be the Doctor who ended the time war. The disowned Doctor because he committed the acts that scarred 9 and 10 so deeply.
Also. John Hurt + Matt Smith = John Smith.
