“What’s a Time Lord?”, girl number one asked wearing a quizzical expression.

“It’s just the most awesome thing ever,” girl number two continues, “This guy who is kind of alien, but also very handsome by human standards, is the last of his species.

That’s more or less what a Time Lord is...he doesn’t have to abide by the rules of time.
