Doctor Who: The Time Of The Doctor
Without going into detail [as some might not have watched it yet] It does answer some questions while leaving other long standing questions open to further discussion.
What I can say is that I enjoyed the episode more than I expected I would. If you haven't watched it yet I am sure that you will like it. Thumbs up from me.

Yep good episode without the stomach churning schmaltz of Tennant's departure.
Really looking forward to Capaldi's Doctor. "Do you know how to fly this #?!#ing thing?" :-P

The excuse about the tenth doctor's "second" regeneration did seem to be a bit of a deus ex though... it happened long enough ago, it's a bit much to spring on fans of the "Eleventh Doctor" that he is - or was - now supposed to be the last incarnation?!
Other than that, a very good episode. Matt Smith ages well... :P

I'm glad they explained it, granted in has been explained recently just about every where outside of an episode, but still.... and then how he now keeps going was very fitting a plot device.
But will someone finally say his bloody name!!!!

Just watched the episode and that has got to be the worse regeneration ever.
It even surpasses the rubbishness of Colin baker & sylvester McCoy regeneration and Colin baker wasn't even there.

Ian, await the comments that is it all to do with being given more regenerations... that explains to badness!
I have to agree, since the re-invention of Dr Who we have had decent, emotional, focused moments for regeneration... this did suck. Even Paul McGann's in the online mini episode was better!

That wasn't the problem as they explained the resetting the regeneration count, the problem was there wasn't a actual regeneration between the old and new doctor. It was snap he changed.

I have to say that the solution to the age old debate about how to go past the regent limit was a bit poor. Oh a crack opened and they gave him some extra regen juice? Not great.
I liked the quick regen though. Probably a reaction to the drawn out affair with Tennent.

It was a bit "bitty" we thought. Some of the last bit with the crack etc didnt make much sense- defiinitely an issue there which I won't go into in case some of you haven't watched it

I like the long goodbyes it being the last time we see that doctor. It always has been the defining point in a series and considering there have been 12 in 50 years I think it is due a big deal.
I do think it was a bit jumpy too... too many examples to mention... and don't want to spoil it yet for those who haven't seen it.

I assumed the actual regeneration was the Highlander style blowing up the Dalek's ship and the change should have occurred there, but as he was "breaking in" his new cycle of regeneration's that's why the physical change took a bit longer.
