Please discuss only those whole stories which have already been released, and obey our spoiler policy.

This page is for discussing the ways in which For Tonight We Might Die doesn't fit well with other DWU narratives. You can also talk about the plot holes that render its own, internal narrative confusing.

Remember, this is a forum, so civil discussion is encouraged. However, please do not sign your posts. Also, keep all posts about the same continuity error under the same bullet point. You can add a new point by typing:

Students not remembering Edit

  • How did the school not remember all these incursions, I know why but how DENCH-and-PALMER 22:31, October 23, 2016 (UTC)

Dating Edit

  • This episode, and those that follow, establish that Series 1 of Class takes place in the fall of 2016, sometime after the death of Clara Oswald. However dialogue in "In the Forest of the Night" establishes that that episode also takes place in 2016, which was followed by "Last Christmas" which, for Clara, presumably takes place at Christmas 2016 at the earliest. That means at the very earliest Clara could have died (allowing time for the established long gap between the Christmas special and Series 9 and the events of the first 10 episodes) was sometime in 2017, which make Class Series 1's correct date closer to 2018, if not later. 23skidoo 13:34, November 14, 2016 (UTC)
Doctor Who timing is rubbish, but technically it's never specified that it's 2016 in 'In the Forest of the Night', the Doctor only mentions 2016 as an example of trees growing, so it can really be just an example.

WHO is handling the situation Edit

  • Why doesn't the Doctor take care of the Rift problem?
Maybe he is already guarding the Vault and "you know who"...
  • If so, how come he shows up at the end anyway?
Maybe this is set prior to the Vault stuff.
  • Fair enough, but then why didn't he set up the vault in Coal Hill and become a teacher there?
Because then he'd risk breaking the timeline by coming across Clara or Danny or even Susan if he "has been teaching there for about 50 years".
Alternatively, he'd have a hard time taking care of the breaches and whatever comes out of them while also watching after the vault.
Also, "you know who" could use the breaches to escape.
  • Why doesn't U.N.I.T. handle it?
  • Why doesn't TORCHWOOD handle it?
They've been transfered to the U.S.
But they came back in the BIG FINISH episodes. *If anyone has info on the CURRENT whereabouts of Torchwood (where they were last seen in the audios, where they are in the comics, if any new novels came out), Please update this post because as of when i'm writing this, all 13 points below "WHO is handling..." are written by me.
  • Why doesn't Sarah Jane and her merry band of alien fighters handle it or at least check it out? (I know Liz Sladen passed away but "in-universe"-Sarah didn't.)
