The UNIT dating controversy, regarding whether the Third Doctor era stories took place in the s or s, is alluded to in dialogue by Kate Stewart, when she mentions that events occurred in "the '70s or '80s depending on the dating protocol used". When the Eleventh Doctor tells Clara that the situation is "timey-wimey stuff," and the War Doctor ridicules him for it, the Tenth Doctor remarks, "I have no idea where he picks that stuff up"; the Tenth originally used the phrase in " Blink " Likewise, a Time Lord says, "I didn't know when I was well-off.
All twelve of them. I didn't know when I was well off. A line from the First Doctor from The Five Doctors is also reused near the end as the Tenth Doctor tells the Eleventh, "It's good to know my future is in safe hands" which the First told the Fifth in the earlier story.
The Eleventh Doctor resurrects the phrase " reversing the polarity " associated with the Third Doctor, to comical effect. The Doctor also confronts his dark side in " Amy's Choice ", where he is put through trials by a manifestation of his self-loathing, the Dream Lord Toby Jones.
Though he closes the cracks —reversing their effects and preventing the explosion— the Doctor himself is erased from history. River assists Amy in remembering the Doctor back into existence; he returns at her wedding to Rory, and the couple rejoin him as his companions.
Eventually, Amy unknowingly lets slip that the Doctor dies in " The Almost People ", when it also turns out that she is pregnant and has been kidnapped by the nefarious Madame Kovarian Frances Barber.

She nearly succeeds using a kiss of poisoned lipstick before Amy convinces her to save his life instead. The Doctor also learns the circumstances of his death from historical records on a time-travelling shape-shifting robot ship called the Teselecta.

Some time passes before the Doctor is ready to confront his death. In " The Wedding of River Song ", he devises an escape by concealing himself within the Teselecta, which is disguised to look like him, to make it seem he is shot and burned as history records.
In a doomed alternate reality caused by River's reluctance to shoot the Doctor, the two become married; during the ceremony, she is let in on the Doctor's original plan and helps fake and corroborate his death. The Doctor is then warned by his old friend Dorium Maldovar Simon Fisher Becker that more prophecies still concern him. The Doctor learns he will be asked the oldest question in the universe, "Doctor who? They unite again in the Series 7 premiere " Asylum of the Daleks "in which the Doctor is erased from the Daleks' memory banks due to the actions of Oswin Oswald Jenna-Louise Colemana young woman turned Dalek who had retained her human mind; she subsequently dies.
The Doctor then takes Amy and Rory on several adventures, eventually taking them back on as full-time companions in " The Power of Three " before losing them during the events of " The Angels Take Manhattan ". Mid-adventure, Clara dies, and when the Doctor sees her tombstone, reading "Clara Oswin Oswald", he realises that Oswin and Clara are the same woman in different moments of time.
He resolves to find her again in another era.
He takes her as his companion and attempts to solve the mystery of "the Impossible Girl". The Doctor eventually gets his answer in " The Name of the Doctor " when he is forced by the Great Intelligence to go to Trenzalore, revealed to be planet on which the Doctor will die.
Within the Doctor's tomb, the Great Intelligence uses the dead Doctor's remnants—his disembodied "timestream"—to spread himself across the Doctor's history, turning his victories into defeats. Clara pursues him and is scattered throughout the Doctor's timeline creating Oswin Oswald and Clara Oswin Oswald among numerous other incarnations who undo the Great Intelligence's work.
The Doctor has a mournful conversation with River's apparition, giving her closure before entering the timeline to retrieve Clara. However, once he saves her, the Doctor is forced to reveal the existence of a previous incarnation John Hurt who broke the promise represented by the name "Doctor" during the Time War of his past.
Though the older Doctors berate the 'War Doctor' for his killing both Time Lords and Daleks with a sentient weapon known as the Moment, they ultimately choose to support his decision and forgive themselves for this past atrocity. Led by the Moment into the midst of the Time War, the Doctors realise they have the potential to change its outcome and enlist the aid of their previous incarnations in an uncertain bid to save Gallifrey from destruction.
