"So you’re my future. A decayed corpse and an essence in an alien body."
This was always intended as a fun aside, a pastiche of The Three and Five Doctors. I think I'd wanted to acknowledge the Master during the Time War - perhaps inspired at the time by the appearance of the War Doctor.
If I were writing this story from scratch today, it would obviously have featured Missy but this was written a year before her first appearance.

The script was completed on 4 Sept 2013.

The story was shot in 3 separate blocks.
3 Jan 2018 - the Death Zone exteriors
23 July 2018 - the Dalek corridor
2-3 Aug 2018 - the Dark Tower corridor plus a reshoot of the Sea Devils emerging from the moat.
5 Aug 2018 - Rassilon's tomb, Yana waking, additional shots of Davros, the War Doctor and the modern Daleks.

Editing began in January 2018 and continued slowly until August. The last frame to be edited was the final shot of the Time War. The background to the Time Lord ship went through several refinements.
The Dalek ship at the end is from The Fate of the Obliviate (2008). Ideally, I'd have used the model we had in Daleks v Cybermen but didn't have any photos of it available as I edited.
The destroyed Dalek is a composite of the actual grey Genesis Dalek and the destroyed Remembrance version.
The image of the 'dead' 3rd Doctor uses the face of the Auton.

This mini episode was published on 25th Sept, inspired by and in anticipation of Jodie Whitaker's debut as the Doctor.

Obviously, this takes place during the Time War between Night of the Doctor and Day of the Doctor.
