  1. You know, it's interesting… One, I'd just like to say, that it wasn't until he changed into Doc number 11 that I realized that David was, is, and always shall be, MY Doctor.

    Two, I've been thinking that the reason the 10-11 regen was so violent, was that 10 didn't want to go so much, he held in the power so long, so that when t was released, it came out with that much more force. But now that see all the regens side by side, I think that maybe, it's because he's coming to his final regen. Maybe it takes more and more energy each time to remake a Time Lord's body, and that's the reason for the old limitations set by the rulers of Gallifrey… Thoughts, anyone?

    And, bear in mind, I thought of most of this as I wrote it down just now, so be gentle.

    • Or our ability to easily do large explody scenes has increased dramatically. Much harder to do an impressive explosion cost effectively in 1960. That and I suspect as an audience we are not content with a simple waver of light and POOF new Doctor. We expect that kind of transformation to have some level of trauma to it.

  2. The 7th – 8th regen is the most realistic in IMHO. Colin Bakers regen was pretty good for about the first ten minutes (slightly evil, grumpy doctor). Tom Baker to peter davidson even his shoes regenerated?

  3. I really liked Christopher… how he was always smiling and finding everything fascinating. I really like David as well. Those two to me just seem like who the Doctor really is. I can't pick a favorite between the two, but Matt, the new guy I HATE. I don't know what it is about him, but he annoys me and for all purposes, has ruined the show. Can't wait for the next transformation so we can get rid of the 11th.
