I don’t think a thread like this already exists, but I thought it would be a good thing to have a place for those questions about the show that no matter how much you research or try to make sense of it in your head you don’t understand.

For example I’ve been confused for a long while about how the confession dial works on the doctor who wiki it says:
The confession dial was a small, circular disk used as part of a Gallifreyan ritual act of purification. It allowed a dying Time Lord to face their demons and make their peace before their mind was uploaded to the Matrix

Now if that’s the case what was in the doctors confession dial when it was sent to Missy? Was it empty? Or had the Doctor been in their once before but surely he would have known where he was in heaven sent if that’s the case?
Also in Face The Raven I’m sure the Doctor wasn’t put in there because he was dying, does this mean the device had been repurposed to get the time lords the information they wanted?

No but seriously I don’t think the timelords ever meant for the doctor to get out of the confession dial.

In my opinion, the timelords put him in ther to die, and they didn’t anticipate his teleport hack.
