    Common perception is that it was Bad Wolf - that she was The Moment. When she absorbed the time vortex, she gained the ability to change time - the only way it could have been un time-locked perhaps. Plus, the glow of her eyes was identical to Bad Wolf.

    Loved it, anyway.

    I watched it and I thought it wasn't very good. I had no idea what was going on, it had moments crammed into it just to shoehorn in some cheesy nostalgia and had a far too excessive number of over-convenient plot devices. I've not been a big fan of the later stuff mind you as none of it has made any sense to me!

    Just going back a few posts... regardless of whether he calls himself the doctor or not as John Hurt... He is still a time Lord who has 13 lives... so under that rule Capaldi should be the last life...

    We know they will find a way round it but for the record that is how it should be and also a great set up for a story line!

    But forget all that it was the best episode in years... possibly only beaten since the re imaging by the first episode with the Angels... or with John Simm as the master.

    John Hurt was brilliant and worthy of a series to himself!

    And I was mouth wide open at seeing Tom Baker... superb writing!

    when Troughton changed to Petwee, the Time Lords changed his appearence rather than a regeneration is one argument.

    Forget the time lock, remember it has already been picked byDalek Caan so that he could rescue Davros.

    Depends on if you counter the Sisterhood of Karns regeneration as a regeneration and also EGR2's point on the Troughton/Pertwee regeneration

    Am I the only person who was expecting a feature length episode about the Time War (between Time Lords and Daleks) to feature more Daleks?

    Also, in "The Night of The Doctor", McGann's Doctor is killed in the spaceship crash and brought back to life by the Sisterhood of Karn.
    One could argue that his resurrection means a new 13 incarnations?

    Yep... although disappointed that Chris didn't want to appear and just do the cameo... rather than rely on CGI...

    Quite a few people don't seem to be able to follow it for some reason. I thought it was very well written, and made sense.

    I enjoyed it.

    Not to mention, it gave XFactor a good kicking in ratings.

    Worth it just for that. I wonder how it faired for past Dr Who ratings?
