Was Claire Bloom The Doctors Mother? Well... Doctor Who

Doctor Who The Writers Tale The Final Chapter
, page 662, about The End of Time;

...Claire Bloom is playing the Doctors mum! (Yes, that's what shes been told, too)...

So there we have it, its official!

So if anyone asks "is she his mummy", you know the answer :)Reblog this post [with Zemanta]

Whooo... I'm breathing a sigh of relief that the info didn't make it into canon, then!

True... mercifully not so much "official" as it is a behind-the-scenes idea that never made it on air, leaving it open to interpretation. Huzzah!

Which begs the questions, doesn’t it?

Who was Claire Bloom playing?

I was wondering about this myself. I kept thinking it was Donna the way he was looking at her at her wedding when Wilf asked who the woman was.

But then I went back and watched again. When Ten's music started to play and she looked up at him. There was something about the look on his face and more importantly his eyes. That look that only a son could give to a mother, especially if he was seeing her for the last time. That's when my view changed.
