    I actually thought that was the most emotional regeneration in my opinion. When Amy came out it was just the dagger... :sad:

    Oh okay! I enjoyed it myself! I think the Doctor should have regenerated when he was in the tower, though. The face change thing was a bit of an anticlimax.

    I think as the cycle was reset his regeneration was quick and too the point. The further into his cycle the longer it takes ?

    I thought as an episode taken on its own, it was disappointing. But, as an episode taken in context, so seen after the 50th which was EPIC and tying together so many loose ends, it was immaculate. So many things accomplished plausibly in one hour that I couldn't even be mad. That was really impressive, and then I felt sad about Smit dying. Though I watched all of Tennant, I didn't really like his episodes compared to Smiths who was impeccable in my opinion. Smith was my doctor and I felt a bit lonely last night. Lol

    I was wondering since the doctor didn't die at trenzalor what happened to him and clara's visit there in the name of the doctor? I mean it couldn't exist if he is still alive right?

    Hmm. Did the Doctor not die at Trenzalore? I thought that's what the old age thing was about.

    And then, in TNOTD, he and Clara visited Trenzalore AFTER the big battle OF TTOTD had taken place.

    Well doh. :lol: But the ELEVENTH Doctor *ended* at Trenzalore, that's what I meant. In a way, that is sort of dying ...

    I don't get all the hate at all tbh, I loved the episode and I love the show, just looking forward to the new series when it comes; Peter Capaldi should be awesome

    the Moffat hate has just been done to death now tbh, yes the show has it's flaws, so does like every show on TV, there is far, far worse **** on telly for people to bash as well, I mean Mrs Browns Boys was apparently the most watched show on xmas day, if any show needs to be bashed into oblivion then that is top of my list for it, it's not even remotely funny, the episode I watched felt like my head was being violated.

    I just wish Matt-Capaldi was drawn out a tiny bit longer than like 5seconds?

    I think for me the thing is I watch VERY few TV series, so finding something I previously enjoyed become less enjoyable over the past two series and now not creating much enjoyment at all is sad :sad:

    I've just sat bawling my eyes out at the last episode.

    Okay, so it was a little rushed and I struggled to keep up in places, but Matt Smith was just fantastic. It made it harder to see him go... And my suspicions about Capaldi have so far been confirmed: dull, dull, dull. He had a good 30 seconds to assert his character, like Smith and Tennant did before him. Capaldi was just.... boring.

    30 seconds is nothing, seriously give him a chance to actually act. If I judged David Tennant one the first few seconds he had I would have not watched after series 1 :rolleyes:

    He had a chance to act: it was a fair amount of screen time. David Tennant and Matt Smith both managed it, so I don't see why Peter Capaldi shouldn't be expected to. The kidney joke was about as funny as my grandma's socks.

    Just my initial thoughts; I'm happy to be proved wrong.

    I watch a ridiculous amount of television and it annoys me watching DW only because the potential is there for an amazing show but the execution is always lacking.

    Aww I loved him. His entrance was kinda similar to Tennants!

    I think we're all suffering from this a bit:



    I was a little disappointed by Capaldi's entry, but I am reserving judgement until we actually see him in action. It's really not fair to judge him based on about 3 lines of dialogue, while he was still wearing the previous Doctor's costume. I hated Smith's entry after Tennant regenerated, but his character took shape properly in the Eleventh Hour. I'm guessing we'll get the same thing with Capaldi - once he gets a chance to develop his own version of the Doctor, then I'll make up my mind whether I like his interpretation or not.
