The Newly Regenerated Doctor Who Thread

posted by Friar on - last edited - Viewed by 40.5K users

So, Christmas is approaching, and with it a brand new Doctor who episode, and seeing as it's no longer series 5, I thought it would be time for a new, more generalised Doctor who thread!

For those who are new to the series, It features a humanoid Alien (timelord) called the Doctor, who travels in time and space in the TARDIS. He's the last of his race, and when he dies, he regenerates into a new person (up to 13 times). So far he has done so 11 times, with the current, 11th doctor being Matt Smith.

To kick things off, here's a trailer for the new Doctor who ipod/iphone/ipad/android game: The mazes of time!

  • Tom Baker and Romona traveled around for millions of years having secret adventures.

  • I thought it was more like four hundred years.

    And they still try to say that the Doctor is celibate after all that time. Pah-leeeease.

  • The Doctor said looking like a human was optional before. He should regenerate into Frieza that way he won't be so death prone anymore.

  • Just had a thought here.

    Let's say the Doctor regenerates into a black guy. Idris... whatever, someone like that. What happens when he tries to do a historical adventure? Dude'll get freakin' lynched.

    Similar thing if the Doctor regenerating into a woman. It'd effectively rule out a whole area of stories.

    There. There's your non racist/sexist reason for the Doctor staying a white male - it lets for less awkward storytelling.

    (Also, if he turned into a woman, would he still be River's husband or would he become River's wife? Gah!)

    Martha Jones got about just fine though. Even in Human Nature where she was all alone (kinda) she only had to deal with a little racism.

    She was almost completely sidelined from the main plot and was treated like crap.

    Yes but that wasn't cos of her skin colour it was cos Ten missed Rose like a big baby. Thank god 11 got over the Ponds and didn't keep saying to Clara "Amy would have worked this out by now!.

  • Well 11 moped around like a Baby the only difference was when he met Clara he got over it unlike 10...

    Honestly, since she's from the fifty-second century, the place that spawned Jack Harkness and John Hart... I really doubt that she'd care one way or the other. Maybe they'd just call it a domestic partnership to avoid pronoun confusion.
