Default Matt Smith leaving Dr Who at Xmas!

http://www.thesun.co.uk/sol/homepage...christmas.html

I quite liked him as a doctor, probably not as much as Tennant but that might be down to the fact that Stephen Moffat can't write, but I will miss him as he made it funny.

Me: To be honest im amazed there isn't a chaos god of not revising or at least chaos god of procrastination

MidnightSun: There will be, when enough people do it. Y'know when the Eldar were all engaging in their hedonism and Slaanesh ripped open the Eye of Terror with his creation? Slaanesh will have NOTHING on the God of Procrastination, and his vile minions will carve the galaxy asunder in a thousand year reign of blood.... Tomorrow

Just watching all the Dr Who's again ATM (well 2005 onwards) and just up to the pandoracle opens one now.

IMO Matt Smith doesn't even measure up to Eccleston but then I blame the writers for that more. The show went very down hill after Tennent left as it became far too pantomime and slap stick for its own good.

They should do to Moffat as they did to Donna. Brain wipe him and if he ever thinks about Dr Who again, his head will explode!

Didn't they get around the nine regens thing with the millennium special, he stole The Masters regens so he's got spares now.
They do seem to have somewhat brushed the whole limited regeneration thing under the carpet since the reboot though so maybe its just a retcon.

13 times it is. Though it is disputed he can regenerate 512 to an infinite amount of times due to stupid story lines in the past but 13 is the official number and the one that is hard coded according to the producers.

Well they managed to ressurect the Master twice, one after running out of regenerations, and thinking he would be good for the Time War, and the other when he refused to regenerate. And knowing Moffat he will make the universe end (again) and somehow put in a loophole when the day is saved

Also don't forget there is a half human David Tennant running about in a parallel reality, primed for Moffat to add back into the show at some point and in some ludicrus way like turning him back into the fully fledged DR if the current DR dies after his 13 regen. Loop holes everywhere! Would also be a good way of returning Tennant to the show that most people are screaming for.

I'm just waiting for the story when the doctor goes to war with himself, in tial of a timelord, the doctor gets put on trial (surprise) with the twist being

*Spoiler*

The prosecution is his future self in disguise

His internal conflict was touched upon in the episode where doctor et al get stuck in 2 dreams, at the end stating 'there is only one person who hates me as much as you do'

We need to see more of that internal conflict

Also Amy pond fucked it up considerably, she was just really bloody annoying, her fella wasn't too bad but she just pissed me right off. They need to stop putting gingers on that program

When evil seeks to overcome good
And firepower ovecomes the spoken word
Then death shall rain from the sky on wings of blood
And retribution will be swift

OOOOOO thats sounds really cool, so is that an actual rumoured story? it would be so good if Toby Jones eventually became the Doctor

I needed some time to get used to Matt Smith as the Doctor. I think I didn't like him at the beginning simply because he is not David Tennant. Matt is not bad, but I don't like that destroying entire universe over and over again. Amy and Rory Pond aren't bad either, but Rory's more adorable. River? Oh, please, kill her or stuck in a black hole, please.

And you know what? The Doctor's last regeneration MUST be ginger. There's just no other fucking option.
