Nope, the dvd is actually worth it though. it's 2 discs loaded with a whole shit ton of special features devoted to just how the movie was almost 10 times better (Spielberg was attached at one point) to just what was happening with the Doctor for the years he was off the air.

Stupid question. When is "Enemy of the World" supposed to be released on DVD in the US?

New Christmas trailer continuously refers to Smith as the 11th Doctor.

It's because Smith is still the 11th actor to play a singular incarnation of the Doctor. The numbering refers to the actors outside the continuity of the show. The numbers aren't used by any character within the stories.

BBC's official site has been updated with all of the biographies of the various Doctors complete up to the Day of the Doctor and Smith is still listed there as the Eleventh Doctor. Like I said, the number is outside the continuity of the stories.

The BBC could hardly be called a bunch of Noobs. :P :wink:

Ah! But the numbers, as you say, aren't used within the show, so why were they used this time?

A narrator on a trailer is not a character in a story within the continuity of the show.

Matt Smith's Doctor is the twelfth incarnation of the character known as the Doctor. Matt Smith, the actor in real life, can also be referred to as The Eleventh Doctor as his version is the eleventh version of the character. Unfortunately, that's the reality, and the choice at this point for Dr. Who fans is to either accept it, or not. There's nothing we're going to do to change it.

I think he shares the same number as David Niven's James Bond.

How would that be cruel? It's not like the Cushing Doctor has ever really been considered to be within continuity. It's a cool version, but like the Rowan Atkinson stuff, it'll just cause headaches for everyone on all sides if we try and account for it. :P :wink:

Sorry, brain fart on my part, I was completely forgetting that Tennant's false regeneration is now considered to be a true regeneration. Therefore, that first sentence should have said thirteenth incarnation, not twelfth.
