Doctor Who: Flux from Chapter One: Halloween Apocalypse is a crazy and hectic journey. Doctor Who: Flux builds the plots, first explored in season 12, and gradually the Doctor’s story disappears. From the time she was a timeless child, to the division’s work, to her time as a refugee doctor, the 13th century ran into difficulties.
In “Chapter Five: Survivors of the Flux,” the Doctor briefly meets his adoptive mother Tecteun, who is not only the department head but who has also hidden the Doctor’s lost memories in a pocket watch after wrapping a chameleon ribbon around his head. Cheap. Before the Doctor can settle his bills with Tecteun, he appears to have been killed by Ravagers Swarm and Azure, who then get their fingers in the clock with the Doctor’s lost memories. While the cliffhanger leads the Doctor to restore his memories in Doctor Who: The Flux End, he must answer many more questions before the story ends. Here are five of the big questions.
What’s wrong with the TARDIS?
Ever since Tecteun and the division released Flux to destroy their domestic universe, TARDIS has behaved in a rather tortured way. When first stimulated the current, sticky black tar began to enter the TARDIS, and the door began to appear in random places. After landing on Earth during the Crimean War, TARDIS continued to do strange things and prevented the Doctor from entering.
At the same time, the Doctor and his comrades Yasmin “Yaz” Khan and Dan Lewis discovered a planet named time. That very force was controlled by a small group of women named Mouri. This in itself proves that another alien race is more potent than the Gallifreyan Time Lords, who are tasked with controlling time. Since TARDIS is a time ship that relies on the energy of time to function, this raises the question of whether Gallifreyan is a TifIS technology or whether the time technology is used by Time Lords of Gallifreyan for its use was changed. If the TARDIS is from Planet Time, this may explain TARDIS’s strange behavior, as time increases and Mouri cannot control it.
What do parasites need?
The first question concerns Ravagers’ role in disrupting time and space. Little is known about Swarm and Azure, other than that they once built the Temple of Atropos on Planet Time, which caught the department’s attention. Her only story with the Doctor is that she was given to capture her in her refugee incarnation, which she successfully did with Karvanista and her team.
While Swarm and Azure seem to excite a desire for revenge, their motivation seems to go further. While they want to return to the Division and the Doctor for their terrible victory at the Temple of Atropos, from Chapter Five: Survivors of the Stream, they seem to be more interested in interrupting time through multiculturalism. This implies that they want to continue where they left off when they invaded Planet Time.
How does Joseph Williamson know what will happen?
One of Doctor Who: Flux’s biggest secrets is Joseph Williamson’s involvement in the Flux event and how his mysterious Williamson tunnels in Liverpool are connected. Based on the figure of Joseph Williamson, who opened the tunnels in the early 19th century.
Chapter Five: The Survivors of the Stream suggests that Williamson, aware of the temporal shocks caused by the Flux incident, began building the tunnels to save the world. Even more mysterious is that the tunnels lead to 12 gates, each a gate to other planets, other times, and even other dimensions. It raises more questions than answers, beginning with who Williamson brought to Flux. Was it the great sergeant on his various visits to Earth throughout history? If so, is that why the Sontarans were able to break into his tunnels at the end of the episode?
