Okay so, the Doctor is from out of space but does he only breathe oxygen like everyone else? Does Gallifrey have an atmosphere like Earth’s? Because I’d never thought about it before now but he seems to be struggling just as much as everyone else and he does seem to have the same basic anatomy as a human, other than the two hearts.
Anyone care to answer?
Gallifrey’s atmosphere is 77% Nitrogen, 21% Oxygen and 2% other, which means that it’s similar to Earth’s atmosphere, but it’s a bit thinner.
The Doctor needs oxygen as well, but Time Lords have a raspiratory bypass system that allows them to go without breathing for a longer time span than humans.
Most fandoms have some pretty deep canon. The Doctor Who fandom can tell you the concentrations of gas in the atmosphere of the home planet of the main character. DW Fandom > Your fandom
This also means that Earth’s atmosphere gets the Doctor high, because it has double (or triple, I can’t do math, forgive me) the oxygen of Gallifrey. Obviously the TARDIS has an Earth-like oxygen level inside of it, which can explain why he’s so bloody hyper all the time.
so are you telling me that the Doctor protects Earth because it’s where he gets his fix is that it
Yup. We’ve gone insane.

“When you run with the Doctor, it feels like it’ll never end, but however hard you try you can’t run forever. Everybody knows that everybody dies and nobody knows it like the Doctor, but I do think that all the skies of all the worlds might just turn dark if he ever, for one moment, accepts it. Everybody knows that everybody dies, but not every day. Not today. Some days are special. Some days are so, so blessed. Some days, nobody dies at all. Now and then, every once in a very long while, every day in a million days, when the wind stands fair and the Doctor comes to call, everybody lives.”-Professor River Song

Doctor Who meme | nine scenes [1/9]
This is one of my favorite Doctor Who hugs. Know why? Because of how different it is. When the Doctor hugs he wraps himself around a person, all arms and folding a person into his embrace. Its a sign of protection, of caring, and it makes the other person feel safe. When the Doctor hugs its out of joy, apology, sorrow, protection, or comfort, but always for the other person.
Look at this hug. Instead of wrapping himself around Rose like we’re so used to seeing, he’s curled up, like he’s trying to hide himself in her. This is the hug you see a frighten child give to someone big and strong who can protect them. This is the Doctor who just faced his worst enemies: A born and bred killer, and himself, the killer he had become. He just faced his darkest demons and in this moment he doesn’t know if he’s won, he just knows he’s broken, and afraid, and can’t be strong anymore. And he knows he needs Rose. Nine wanted Rose with him from the start, but it is at this point that he realizes how much he needs her. She makes him whole again, she makes him feel loved. Rose Tyler makes the man who saved worlds feel safe. And that’s what this hug is. Him needing Rose to protect him, and comfort him, and save him once again. He almost lost her, and he almost lost himself, and he needs her.
That’s why this is one of my favorite hugs.
