A demise regard to a heart-old women Flier and you may a lady Servitor is there is certainly as well as, if you are most people are men.

Signal out of battle and you can ethnicity: The latest Doctor, a beneficial „indigenous out of Afreek”, is probable black, and you may a reference is made to just how unusual was white skin (such as for example Olmayne’s, and you may Avluela’s).
