TO BE FAIR the doctor never really did make a great time lord like. ever. so they weren’t wrong
they bashed a kid’s head in with a rock and burned the body in the woods at like age 10
Actually it was age 7
And then when it turned out that murder had consequences they fobbed said consequences off on the Master
how do we know that wasn’t why they were crying in the barn
no one ever came to comfort koschei
if you don’t count Death asking him to be her champion.
