Not sure what to do now... Sort of feel like having a good cry... not sure why....

Think I will have a cry....

So the Dr is regenerating... and we already know that DT has signed on for season 5 and a xmas special....

AND earlier in the episode for the first time in a while and seemingly for no reason, we saw the hand that the doctor lost in "The Christmas Invasion"... is it possible that this disembodied member may somehow chain the Doctor to his current form and so when he regenerates he remains as David Tennant?!?!?!!!  

That's the theory I am clinging too... I am sure Rose is clinging to it also... 

Also - I am not usually one to be all about the Companions (as awesome as some of them are), but I do have this thing that Rose is (or at least should be) the only companion he was actually in love with - and it would totally gut it for all of that to be overlooked and forgotten etc.... I really REALLY want the Dr and Rose to have a bit of a pash - nothing over the top, just to show that feeling.  In line with that, I totally loved the look on Donna's face, she knows as well as anyone how in love with Rose he is...

I agree with everything you said....about the regeneration especially, we know David Tennant will be back & it's a good job 'cos otherwise I don't know how I would survive a week!!!!

Rose/Doctor: I agree, I don't want anything over the top but throughout the episode we are pretty much told that he is in love with Rose, out of all his companions she is the one he wants to see the most, its there in his eyes!!! I LOVE that Donna is a Doctor/Rose shipper haha!!!

Is it next Saturday yet?

Is it next Saturdat yet?

NO!!! For shame. *sob* If only I had a time machine... :(

Came over from _drwho_, where I was sitting waiting for confirmation that I hadn't simply missed the news that he was leaving. Thanks for the confirmation.

Very interested to see how this turns out... good point about the hand. I hadn't thought of that.

For me, I tihnk the highlight of the episode was when 'Callufrax Minor' appeared on the list of planets. I literally watched The Pirate Planet (in which planets are mysteriously vanishing) about five hours before this ep, so I got a nice little snigger from that. Apparently Callufrax is a bad thing to call a planet if you want it to stick around.

Straight away I was all WTF! Because I had only read the other day about how he's signed on for the xmas special and the next season...

... I hope now that wasn't all some kind of crazy misinformation...

Must not doubt myself... EEP!

Donna is such a D/R shipper! Yay!

I KNOW!!! lol.

I absolutely love Donna.... probably mostly because I totally hated Martha and Donna is so far the other way. Yay for Donna!!!

My sister is now a fan of yours :P She needed a theory to hold her through the next week.

Decent theory though...

I am desperately clutching to that hand!!


WTF! Hopefully being hidden 1 second out of time will be enough to stop the regeneration. There is a teaser trailer being posted tomorrow at one o'clock on the dr who website and next week's episode is 65mins long - can't wait!

Hmmm... also a good theory, about the 1 second out of time... maybe even a combination of the two...


Y'know, I think the Doctor has a really big connection with Sarah Jane as well, as a love interest. Rose is the newer flavor of spice, but I think Sarah Jane will also always hold a place in his heart. Not sure if you're a fan of Forever Knight, but the Doctor is kinda like Nick Knight in this perspective -- always in love with his old lover, Jeanette, but in love also with new lover Natalie.

But ahh! I hope he does regenerate into himself again. You'd think they'd do more with Rose's character after she absorbed the time vortex and all. So much that could be done.

But thanks for posting this and I agree!

Hmm, I'm not sure about SJS... I never saw much of her with the fourth Doctor, but I always got the impression that as she first knew the Doctor as Jon Pertwee, that she didn't really think of him like that and vice versa. I don't think Rose has replaced her in any way.

I think of all his companions SJS is one that he has a lot, if not some of the deepest feelings for, considering their history, etc, but I never thought of them being romantic in either direction...

And the Vortex!!! Yeah, I've always been a bit bummed that there weren't any other lasting effects from that or something - nothing too flashy that would make your eyes roll, but something! After all it wasn't exactly nothing was it, know what I mean :D

Hmm, I think there's something with Sarah-Jane... When did the doctor ever give anyone else a massive computer and a sonic lipstick?

On the topic of giving people stuff, am I the only one that thinks River is really, really annoying and wishes she would die?

He only gave her the lipstick (Mr Smith has created from a piece of alien tech she found). I'm not completely writing off the idea, but I think it's just as likely she was given the lipstick because he knows she can make use of it... He left her once and she continued to "carry on his work", and this time when he left her, her left her with something that would help with that. That's been my take on it.

Like I said above, there are definitely strong feelings there, I just don't think they are romantic. They have a lot of history together and he trusts her completely.

As I said, to me it was more of, this amazing woman who I so trust and who is doing such a great job has to have something to help her with that! Here have a lipstick :D

and LOL about River... yeah, I wasn't sure what to make of her at first. I really didn't like her - they made out that her and the Doctor are obviously some sort of item in the future but she didn't strike me as someone he would end up with.... But then, the future Doctor might be a very different person...

On the subject though of River - We know that Ten stays as Ten for a long time, as she knew him in the future with that face... Hmmm....

We know that Ten stays as Ten for a long time, as she knew him in the future with that face... Hmmm....

*Shudder* Don't even think it... *frantically swats images of river out of mind*

I don't think there was something romantic as such between them, just a really, really deep kind of connection/friendship. Maybe like the one Donna and the Doctor share.

The Doctor and Rose are destined to be together. Just count the number of times in Series 1/2 where the doctor goes in the most critical moments: "Tell Rose... *pause which very obviously means 'I love her' ... Oh, she already knows." They're meant to be together.

over here, they're showing the xmas special this weekend. before launching into the '07 season.


aww :(

Lol, that's ok, everyone is entitled to an opinion.

Do you mind if I ask why?

I've hated Martha since about half way through her first episode... over time I grew more reasons to hate her but in the beginning I was going with my gut feeling, lol. Most of season 3 (which I found a huge let down - most especially the finale - SO much more could have been done with the Master!!!), I spent many moments just muttering at the TV "Shut the fuck up, Martha" everytime she said anything...

(Deleted comment)
Lol. I know what you mean, I have exactly the same feelings towards Nicolas Cage. I just CANNOT watch him and would gladly slap him. ARGH!!!

Of course, I recently discovered that he apparently has a house in Bath near where my new job is... so if you ever read in the paper.... lol.

I wasn't sure of her at first, when I heard she was in it, because I had never seen her act and didn't have a lot of faith, but I really liked her once I started watching. I hated Martha immediately, partly because I think her acting isn't great and also because Rose and the Doctor were comfy with each other and he didn't need to explain things all the time, but when he gets a new companion he always starts all over again.
Donna I hated in the xmas special, but then I still think that is one of the worst eps to date, esp for a xmas special... so it didn't do anyone any favours... but I completely changed my mind the first episode of this season with all that fat walking around etc... lol.

Donna totally ships Ten/Rose :D

I know!!! It's just so SQUEEE :D

Clinging right there with you...

*Makes more space in the clinging area and invites everyone to join her*


I have to say it makes me sad that I called the shot happening right before it happened. My brother laughed alot at it, but that it was so easy to call saddened me :(

Just before it happened I was actually joking that SJ was about to come spinning around the corner out of control in her little car....

I think we all knew something HAD to happen.

Good theory! I'd wondered about the shot of the hand, so yeah that would make sense.

And Russell T Davies is so blatantly a Rose/Ten shipper, so I *hope* we'll get some kind of pay off there.

Yeah, as soon as I got over the shock of the episode credits rolling, lol, I was trying desperately to work out what was going on... and the hand came to mind, it was so random at the time I actually commented to Gareth, "why are they showing us the hand..."

I'm just worried that although "Eleven" may possibly remain the form of Ten, will he have the same personality? Will he and Rose still love each other???!?!?!!!
