The Curator

TARDIS Data Core

The curator of the National Gallery in London was an elderly individual who walked with a cane, and who had insight into a particular Time Lord painting.

After the Eleventh Doctor remembered his face (which resembled that of the Fourth Doctor), the curator told him that "in years to come, you might find yourself… revisiting a few. But just the old favourites, eh?"

He spoke with the Eleventh Doctor and told him that the name of the picture was neither No More nor Gallifrey Falls but in fact Gallifrey Falls No More, and pointed the Doctor in the direction of a search for Gallifrey, telling him he had "a lot to do".

The curator then suggested that he had perhaps been the Doctor once, or that the Eleventh Doctor had once been him.

Notes for The Curator

The Eleventh Doctor Meets The Curator
With Gallifrey saved (they hope) the Doctors say their goodbyes, but left alone with the painting, the current Doctor meets a very familiar face.
