PANEL 1:
In this version, Gallifrey gets mentioned prior to it’s original revealing in The Time Warrior and we get the first Marvel-style “Editor” note, helping to give this the comic strip feel I was after.
Although the implication from TTD is that the Time Lords we see in that story are the President and Chancellor, I felt it made more sense if they were the CIA, acting on the President’s instructions, as that would allow me to get both versions on screen together.

PANEL 2:
“By order of the Prezza” seemed to be a stronger motivation for breaking Time Law #1 and bringing Jon, Pat & Bill together than the original, and it provided further justification for bringing the two versions of the Time Lords together, which I always wanted to do .

PANEL 3:
Another TDA Easter Egg, name checking Rassilon.

PANEL 4: 
When the Prezza has finished, the monitor defaults to the New Series’ gallifreyan graphics.

PANEL 5:
I always wondered why we never saw a scene like this in the TV version, particularly since Bill is able to communicate with the TARDIS with no problem, and he’s stuck in time eddy! So I put it here, not just because it works, but also because it will help make sense of a puzzling moment later on in the ep.

PANEL 6:
Finding shots for the various “new” scenes and moments in this version sometimes entailed using shots from elsewhere in the story, such as here. If memory serves, it’s from Part 4 where Jon is chatting with Bill.
