Speaking of name calling, I see Jenna Louise Coleman is now Jenna Coleman.

Yeah, I saw that. To tell the truth Jenna Louise Coleman has a poetic ring to it to me that Jenna Coleman doesn't.

Ah, using the BBC as a source, the same source that isn't calling John Hurt the Ninth Doctor, but is instead calling Christopher Eccleston the Ninth Doctor. :P

Heads up, Stephen. I'm about to shatter your dreams. :D

Doctor Who fans have wondered for years if the sci-fi drama would have to come to an end due to the 12 regeneration rule.

However executive producer Stephen Moffat, who announced that Matt Smith is the '13th Doctor', has suggested the riddle will be solved on Christmas Day, reports the Daily Mirror.

He told the newspaper: 'The 12 regenerations limit is a central part of Doctor Who mythology. So if the Doctor can never change again, what's Peter Capaldi doing in the Christmas special?'

The writers have left viewers guessing after all 12 Doctors lined up during Saturday night's 50th anniversary special, including John Hurt who was not previously counted.

With David Tennant's Time Lord needing an extra regeneration to save himself during an earlier episode, the character's 12 lives all appear to be used up.


A show source explained to the Daily Mirror: 'The riddle of the regeneration problem, something fans have talked about for decades, will be faced head on at Christmas.'

Adding: 'There is going to be another huge cliffhanger and somehow Peter Capaldi has to join and the series has to continue.'

The Thick Of It star, Capaldi, is thought to be joining the show at Christmas, while a glimpse of him was seen for the first time at the weekend.

He was announced as the next Doctor in August after much speculation, and the next festive episode is said to be a shocking one, according to the source.

Viewers clearly aren't tired of the strange, and often confusing goings on in the show, as an impressive 10.2 million fanatics were fixed to TV screens at the weekend.

The programme went head-to-head with the ITV's The X Factor, which saw its audience figures dip, only managing to attract 7.7 million viewers - one of the lowest audiences for the show in recent years.

Doctor Who's impressive audience was the biggest overnight ratings since the programme was rebooted by the BBC in 2005.


The first bold is the important part, because it does confirm that Hurt is #9 if Smith got bumped. Smith just happened to be bumped two spots instead of one, since they seem to be using Tennant as two regenerations.

Interesting but also awesome that it's being taken head on.

Also, that the Troughton to Pertwee is treated as a definite regeneration.

I think they each bring their own strengths to the role!

I don't know how long Moffat is going to remain the boss, but he is clearly leaving his own mark on the show. He's cleared up the Time War that Davies left and now he'll settle the regenerations.

But Tennant's 1st regeneration was redirected to his severed hand which became the Doctor of Pete's World - so shouldn't the order be...

01. Patrick Troughton
02. Jon Pertwee
03. Tom Baker
04. Peter Davison
05. Colin Baker
06. Sylvester McCoy
07. Paul McGann
08. John Hurt
09. Christopher Eccleston
10. David Tennant (1 heart)
11. David Tennant (2 hearts)
12. Matt Smith

I long thought it was stupid that the Time Lords did not survive, given the number of returns of the Daleks. It was really making the Doctor look incompetent. This fixed that.

I felt that the anniversary special really cemented to eras of Doctor Who together and set it onto a new path. More so with Tom Baker's cameo.

No, that's not it. In the episode 'Journey's End' he regenerates but somehow the proximity of the hand affects the process and he regenerates into the same form. Later the jar containing the hand falls open and the hand regenerates into another Doctor, this time in human form, with one heart. That Doctor isn't counted.

There's the David Tennant's first Doctor, from his first appearance in 'The Parting of the Ways' up to the end of the 'The Stolen Earth.' Then the second Tennant Doctor, from 'Journey's End' to 'The End of Time.' The one heart/human version isn't counted.

No real dreams shattered, my position was always that I was going to go along with BBC's official position -- hence my constant use yesterday of the word "official." :P

I didn't think this was what they were going to do, but now that they have I'm fine with it.
