    Re: 50 years of Doctor Who

    So apparently this is the last Doctor.
    It’s a bit of Doctor Who canon that long-time fans have been pointing out more and more lately, as we head toward the introduction of Peter Capaldi as the Twelfth Doctor. The whole reason we’ve had more than one Doctor in the first place is because of the Time Lord’s handy ability to regenerate into a new body whenever he’s mortally wounded. Sure, sometimes he doesn’t want to go (*sob*), but it means he can keep on exploring time and space indefinitely. Except not really. The show established long ago — specifically in the Tom Baker serial The Deadly Assassin — that a Time Lord can only regenerate a total of twelve times. Who executive producer Steven Moffat seems to have just confirmed that tenet of Who mythology…so what does that mean for the show?

    LOL at Ash !

    Duh Sherlock Holmes fell of a cliff and died once

    It's never the end but it's fun to watch as they scurry around for the explanation.

    Re: 50 years of Doctor Who

    The 12th doctor would be the 11th regeneration. So, according to the throw away line in the Baker era, there can be one more doctor.

    But if, in approximately 6 years the show is still doing well, why would the BBC end it because of a line of dialogue 35 years ago?
    Rose: You're an alien? You sound like you're from the North.
    Doctor: LOTS of planets have a North!!!

    Where does River Song's gift of life come into things? She gave up all her regenerations to save him.

    Spotted this discussion elsewhere

    Is the TARDIS an AI or not?

    What do you think?

    Re: 50 years of Doctor Who

    The trailer for it was awesome, I still haven't seen it posted anywhere in any shape or form so only the SDCC crowd has seen it to my knowledge

    so you can just take my word for it that it was awesome

    Re: 50 years of Doctor Who

    Rumors still around that a cache of missing television from the 60's has been found. Doctor Who missing episodes is supposedly a part of it. The latest is than an announcement from the BBC or other entity is coming very soon.

    EDIT: Looks like I sad the same thing about a month ago. Let's hope they are right this time.
