Although I love the show so much, everything has to end and with the last regeneration and valeyard do you think the show actually will, I really don't want to see this show go the Simpsons way and just keep making episodes until it becomes a joke, but with that said I am so excited for series 7 and the fields of Trenzalor AHHHHHHH
I agree with your point, but it just feels like we only just got the Doctor back. I mean the original run was from 1963 to 1989 just about, and we've only had seven years. I do want his story to end right, but at the same time I think Doctor Who pushed past those sorts of problems in television as soon as they came up with the idea of regeneration. I agree with the viewpoint that they should just try to extend it tastefully (and hopefully not push it like with River in "Let's Kill Hitler").
Also, how can we be sure River had the same amount of regenerations as the Timelords? It took them a while to fully develop into Timelords, so maybe she didn't get as far along as they did.
Or maybe she had more, because there was no regulatory body restricting her to thirteen. We can't know. I'm assuming internal consistency where there is none, just because it makes more sense.
And as for "just getting the Doctor back", remember that the third Doctor got five years, and the fourth Doctor got seven. Again, we can't know how long any one Doctor will last.
I think Doctor Who is too popular and too big a show to just end after the 13th. He'll probably bring back his daughter from the 10th Doctor and Martha episode, maybe she'll be the new Doctor?
I think Jenny should have her own show...perhaps in the Sarah Jane Adventures slot... (I'm wish there was a polite way to say that...)
Remember who said it. And remember that Moffat himself has told us there are only 12 regenerations, and after that he's making something up.
as Timelords can give away their regeneration's, and since river gave the doctor the rest of hers it might mean he can go beyond the norm......
Also doing an online countdown and rewatch to the new season all are invited https://www.facebook.com/events/420307781343642/
Well there is a much bigger fan-base now, so I don't think they'll just end it. Also, River saved his life by giving him her regenerations. As far as we know, she only used two (when she was a little girl, and Melody to River). So, he has two of his own, and eleven of Rivers. Altogether, thirteen more regenerations. Most Doctors last two to three seasons so we're looking at around twenty-six more seasons. WOOOOOHOOOO!
I apologize in advance, but here, in the interest of clarity and decreasing worldsuck, come the facts.
He has nine of River's regenerations/ten of her lives, if you only count the lives we see her in (I tend to posit one more, since she had no access to time travel) AND if you assume Kovarian gave River only as many lives as the Time Lord Council allowed its people to have (which, knowing the Moff, is probably not the case. She probably gave River as many lives as possible, to make sure she killed the Doctor). The Doctor now has two more lives of his own, plus nine of River's at the very least. With a mathematical average so far of three seasons per life (if you count Eight as having zero seasons), we get an expected thirty-three more seasons.
