Did You Know?


In an early draft of the script, Russell T. Davies had the Doctor address the "half-human" statement the Eighth Doctor made in Doctor Who (1996), dismissing it as "a forty-eight-hour bug". The line was cut by Davies for several stated reasons, including the fact it would have confused viewers who were only familiar with the events of "Human Nature". See more »

Wilfred Mott: [stuck in the chamber] I'm sorry. Look, just leave me.
The Doctor: [smiles] Okay, right then, I will.
The Doctor: 'Cause you had to go in there, didn't you? You had to go in there and get stuck, oh yes. 'Cause that's who you are, Wilfred. You were always this, waiting for me, all this time.
Wilfred Mott: No, really, just leave me. I'm an old man, Doctor. I've had my time.
The Doctor: Well, exactly, look at you, not remotely important. But me... I could do so much more.
The Doctor: So much more!
The Doctor: But this is what I get. My reward.

The worst regeneration story
9 September 2015 | by (Valhalla) – See all my reviews

Okay, I am a fan of Doctor Who. Old and New. I feel that despite the fact that if you look at all of it in one big picture there are so many plot holes in the show, the individual stories on their own do get pretty good and without intending a pun, I feel he is one of the most timeless characters in television history. I have seen regeneration stories and my short opinion is that if they just did what they did last time with Christopher Eccleston even I wouldn't have minded, hell Eccleston's regeneration scenes is one of my favourite regeneration scenes, and this is coming from someone who prefers the classics. The reason why I hate, repeat HATE this regeneration story boils down to one thing really, but it angers me in so many ways that I have to talk about it.

The plot is that the tenth Doctor basically mopes about the next stage of his life cycle... Oh and there's something else with The Master coming back and taking over the world by becoming everyone except The Doctor and companions, all you need to know about that is that it isn't as good as The Last Of The Time Lords even without the Tenth Doctor moping.

The tenth doctor mopes A LOT about what is supposed to be the next stage of his life cycle. Granted, Time Lords have by far the strangest life cycle I've seen in fiction but this makes his moping shot down badly. Him complaining about him not wanting to leave and about doing so much more grows obsolete when the character goes nowhere and just gets a new body. One of the reasons why I like Parting Of The Ways' handling is that there is no complaints, no whining. Almost like how it's meant to be treated. If the tenth Doctor regenerated under the same circumstances the second one did with execution, exile and his companions being forced to forget everything they know by force... Honestly, i could see it. But unlike The War Games, this has no reason for him to do all this.

Oh and there is just one line that really overplays how much they want to sympathize with Doctor Who changing actors. The Tenth says that when he regenerates it feels like dying. Okay, if this is the case and you're that upset that you're doing this for the ninth time now I just have many complaints. While he does have a new face, body and personality - how do you explain the fact that he knows everything all his previous incarnations know? I think a personality shift while still keeping memories doesn't count as dying if you're still off doing what you loved when you are alive. Secondly, I don't know I just find it insulting that The Doctor compares his regeneration to dying when he still lives. Death is ceasing to exist, while the character gets all these other chances and still mopes about having to die after 900 years, oh the agony of dying at the young age of 903, if this was a drama and David Tenant played a character that was 30 or so, and his death was actually the real thing and the characters were defined - THEN I would sympathize.

While I'm harping on The Tenth Doctor regenerating and how much this lacks drama, this takes up and I'm not kidding 98% of the entire thing. Each scene where they discuss this is like being beaten over the head, being forced to feel something. On it's own there was about one scene that take out everything else is actually dramatic. It just falls flat trying to make The Doctor seem like Jesus or some crap. The song that plays over The Tenth's regeneration when translated is literally more built on treating it like an actual death and proclaiming how much the Tenth Doctor saved people and all that crap that just makes me puke with frustration at this.

If this was an actual death of a character... as in Kaput, done, it's over - They get nothing! Then I would have treated this with more respect. Honestly, him moping about regeneration is like complaining about getting wrinkles or hair greying. There is no drama to a character who doesn't die, you know isn't going to die (and to axe it once they found what many consider to be the best Doctor of the new show... Yeah, we knew he was going to regenerate and the show must go on). This just turns the character into someone unlikeable. Even if they remade the show and Tenant was the First Doctor then it would be better but there is no drama to something done 9 times before in their life and it's completely natural.

All in all, I KNOW I've angered some of you but honestly - It's not fun to watch escapist sci-fi when what you're given is 2 hours of someone complaining about their next stage in life.
