    when matt leaves and he is on his 12th life probably he goes back in time and saves a timelord from the time war and he grants the doctor more lifes that would be AWESOME!!!!!

    I reckon River Song is the Doctor’s wife because she knows how to fly the tardis, use a sonic screwdriver, she can write gallifreyan letters and people call her Doctor Song.. I could be wrong but it is a possibility and it might be true you never know with doctor who.

    I have heard RUMORS that matt smith will leave soon (less than a year) to break into the movie indist. The source Supposedly comes from HIS friends. If he leaves, it throws the whole series off! This will ruin everything!!!! I hope that its just a rumor. Not only will it ruin it for the fans–but for the other dr.who staff–writers—directors–supporting cast. ETC. This will cause the dr. who show to come to a finishing hault sooner than it should. I read that the doctor could regenerate 13 times ..after that its good bye to the longest running scifi tv show. It was such a disappointment when the doctor before David Tennet up and left so soon. Please be a rumor!

    @The Last Warrior moffat has said that the 13 life’s thing does not apply any more because dr whos a hit

    No. Afraid not. He has regenerated TEN times. He confirmed to Craig he is the 11th. Regenerating into the hand is just a crappy RTD cop out and therefore, does not count.

    🙁 Dr who has ended, but hey at least it’ll back back for xmas and the new year (2011), that’s VERY good, but 6 months till the new series, and 14 months till new series. 🙂 I’ve turned my frown upside down!

    the voice has to be davros…..

    i think the voice from the tardis is omega. He is a very important character in dr who and is the only person that i can think of that can control time itself.

    im into acting aswell
    i dont think he has regenerated 12 times, hes only regenerated 11 times, plus if the fake 10th doctor regeneration counted then the next regeneration will be his last
    i dont want it to end but there comes a point when it will have to
    imagine the last ever episode of Doctor Who, quite sumthin…..

  • Amy + Rory = Love

    July 1st, 2010 - 1:25pm

    Ah but the Doctor’s already regenerated 12 times because David Tennant regenerated into his hand. If he regenerated into a Woman there’s a chance it could be River Song?? Nah, probably not. But it must be possible to regenerate into a Woman because The Doctor pats himself down after to see what’s there… 😉
    It would be a bit weird wouldn’t it though? They would call it ‘ Nurse Who!’ Hmmm… But I want Doctor Who to last forever! (Impossible 🙁 I want to be the assistant I love acting!
    Also, The Big Bang was such a beautiful episode and Steven Moffat is a brilliant writer.

    i do remember SM saying that the 13 lives rule would be explained
    but i think they should end it after 13 cos, doctor who will have to end sumwhere along the line
    another thing thats been confusing me is the fake 10th doctor regeneration in the stolen earth/journeys end, cos does that actually count as a regeneration?
