This Christopher Eccleston Story Proves Doctor Who Can Easily Retcon The Timeless Child

The Timeless Child storyline rumbled the entirety of The Doctor's already-established backstory in Doctor Who, but one of Christopher Eccleston's storylines can easily disregard this. The finale of Doctor Who season 12 revealed to the Thirteenth Doctor (Jodie Whittaker) and viewers alike that the Time Lord race had come from The Doctor themselves, completely turning previous Doctor Who lore on its head. The Doctor learned that their lives had started several regenerations before they could remember, and as a child they had been discovered hidden beneath a wormhole. There was no explanation of where the Timeless Child's home planet was, and so they were taken to Gallifrey to have their biological template extracted and used for creating the Time Lord race.
