We all carry our prisons with us. There was a war… What war? The Time War. I thought that was just a legend. The war between the Daleks and the Time Lords. with the whole of creation at stake. I was there … in the battle. Where is it, Doctor? Your home is lost in fire. I’m not just a Time Lord, I’m the last of the Time Lords. I’m the only one left. Legend says he lead the battle in the last Great Time War. It’s the fall of Arcadia, Gallifrey’s second city. I was there at the fall of Arcadia. The final day… This is only the furthest edge of the Time War. I will bend the heavens to save my race. What will you sacrifice for yours? War is another world. If it’s war, then it’s war. You don’t get it, Doctor. How can you? Today, you leave me no choice. I had no choice. No more. He left a message. No more… The whole universe can valst. I walked when there were no walls… between my people and the Daleks. The last Great Time War, and in that battle … there was a man with more blood on his hands than any other. Every moment in time and space is burning… This, is not a war! I fought in a bigger war than you will ever know! Arcadia has fallen… I repeat! Arcadia has fallen! I did worse things than you could ever imagine, and when I close my eyes… Burning..! Falling..! All of it .. Falling! Suffering.. The war turning to hell. Your race is dead! You all burned! All of you! I lived. Everyone else died. Do you know who that leaves? Me! Just me! I hear more screams than anyone could ever be able to count! I watched it happen… I made it happen! Never forget, Doctor! You did this! An entire species… Gallifrey falling! Genocide! All of them but not you, Which must mean… I was the only one who could end it. It must end. I intend to end it the only way I can. I’ve got to do this, I’ve got to end it. And what happens then? I think it would kill them. Is it beyond the wit of a Time Lord to send them death? That’s the thing, if I don’t dare, everyone dies. Someone must make a choice. Genocide… in a moment. The most terrible choice. Genocide… has a choice.. The moment is coming. The Moment is me, you have to decide. Are you ready, Doctor? So many race, for a single life. There is no other way. Cause this is my life, Jackie. It’s not fun, it’s not smart, it’s just standing up and making a decision. Because nobody else will. How can you bare it? I did for you. Two almighty civilizations burning. Oh, I was there, I fought in the war, it wasn’t my fault! Thank the gods my people weren’t relying on you to save them. What I did… I did without choice. Either I destroy my own people, or let the universe burn. How many children on Gallifrey right now? 2.47 billion. These are the people you’re gonna burn? Gallifrey, you’re going to burn it. Billions will die. Mothers, sons, fathers… daughters. I just feel sorry for the poor bloke who to press the button to had to blow it all up. I am afraid, mother. All that pain and the misery. Is that the end of it? The Time War… And when they died that part of me died with them. I see it in his eyes every day, he’d do anything to change it. My entire planet died, my whole family, do you think it never occured to me to go back and save them? I can never go back, I can’t! I just can’t! I can do, anything. We don’t have a choice. We always have a choice. I could save everyone, I could stop the war. I have had 400 years to think about this. I’ve changed my mind. Nobody dies today. You got that? Nobody dies. Where would Gallifrey be? Frozen Frozen in an instint of time. Safe. Why would you such a thing? Because the alternative is burning. And I’ve seen that. And I never want to see it again. And I declare: this war is over! For Gallifrey. For Gallifrey! Gallifrey stand! Just this once, everybody lives! My people are alive. They didn’t die. I brought them back, I found a way.
