Hurt did something that makes it so he doesn't have the right to be called "The Doctor" anymore.
so hands up anyone who has done any 'work' today?
This technicaly counts as work for me :)
Anybody want to buy some stuff? :P There, job done!
Been updateing our website as well as following this thread. Multi tasking, must be a lady ;)
Ahhh you're infected by the master too?
There's a part of the story missing [the McGann > Eccleston period] and it could be good.
Plus, the Doctor is >900 years old. At some point he's gotta snap at the BS some people/species do.
Did anybody see Points of View yesterday? There was a classic video with somebody bemoaning the stories weren't realistic any more.
I always looked at the regeneration thing as a Timelord law rather than a biological barrier, i think the Master got "granted" additional regens for helping the doctor in an old episode, so no Timelord's = no limit to regens.
Unless the special episode involves saving Gallifrey :O
I think the "rumor" about him being a past incarnation between McGann and Ecclestone was from an interview where John Hurst let slip, cant find it now though.
If he was the Valeyard he wouldn't be the doctor any longer. They're the same being but two completely seperate people. Though it'd still count to one of his regens if the limit rule is still in place.
I can only assume that by mucking around inside his own timeline (now a pocket universe or some such), that he will come out of it with a new set of regenerations maybe?
I myself assumed at the end of that episode that Hurt was the "Original" time lord from Gallifrey, who became "The Doctor" after his actions in the time war, that was the "persona" that he took on after his actions there, so Hurt was the "Original" time lord (incarnation Zero) I thought and everything else afterwards was done as "The Doctor".
I also believe what others do in the thread that the series has suffered a lot because of the writing, way too much on Rory and Amy I felt, no real "big baddies" at all, overall I think the writing has been poor for a while, that being said, potentially it looks awesome in November now if they deliver after that episode.
