Oh, how about this for season 7? We get the Victorian Clara as planned originally for the first half, she dies saving the Doctor, then he meets modern Clara for the second half of the season as was.

My boyfriend skipped Capaldi, and I was thinking of giving him a list of highlights, and it would probably end up being about 10 episodes and lots of Ďok this 10 minutes of Deep Breathí Ďfive minutes near the end of Zygon inversion, but donít look too deeply at the meaning of the wordsí bits.

Ghost Light is a very good story, the downside is that it can take a couple of viewings to piece everything together. Itís very densely packed, and thereís not a wasted moment (indeed, it could honestly use a little more room to breathe).

At media cons, sure. At the cons I go to, guests are willing to shoot the poo poo with people at the hotel bar, or sometimes wander through the halls and crash parties. This includes actors as well as big name writers.

Yeah, my limited experience of cons are largely the Discworld/British sci-fi ones which are more low key and the guests absolutely spend lots of time in the bar chatting with anyone.

Well many may recall that back in the day that Rose actually leaked a few days early with the Fourth Doctor theme over the credits. And it was a very low rez source so a lot of people were being lovely about the quality.

Oh weíve moved from Rose reactions to first Who. For me, that was being about 6 years old and catching a man being chased by a robot on prime time BBC1. That never happened, so I was rapt. It turned out to be Paradise Towers (Iíve still not actually worked out what episode). I guess I was Whooked!

Honestly, I could use more optimistic sci-fi on my screen, and QL was nothing if not hopeful in tone.

And we totally saw what the back end of Project Quantum Leap looked like! And honestly, by going off the wall with its coloured block scheme, it didnít really date.

I love Hurt's version.
Am not a hardcore fan, is there any canon on how long did this regeneration lived? As he was young when he first appeared in the mini ep.

None, really, and it would be impossible to tell due to the temporal mindfuck nature of the Time War. In all honesty, we don't really know how long any of the Doctor's regenerations lasted.

EDIT: ok, we know Eleven was on Trenzalore for 900 years, and by the end of that he looked a fair bit older than the War Doctor, but he also travelled for another 200 years without apparently aging any between seasons 5 and 6, so you could probably say Eleven's incarnation lasted roughly 1200 years, probably a little more.

Also the Doctor likely doesn't even remember how old he is.


He jumped a few centuries or so during the Fourth Doctor's era from the Third and was somewhere north of 2000 by Seven, and then dropped back down to just 2000 for Nine


Chances are the Doctor is way, WAY older than he even thinks just because of time poo poo

Time of the Rani gives us an age of 953 years old for both him and the Rani, and then 900 when Nine rolled around,
