I'm pretty sure the island is purgatory, the polar bear ended up there because the black smoke wanted somebody to play poker with, and the Doctor is actually WaaaAAaAaaAAAaaallllt.

when writers get more concerned with the story they aren't telling instead of the one they are, it all comes out to be about the same, at least.

WTF Indeed: MadSkillz: And yet they did not pick up on the whole thing that a FARKER brought up in a previous thread. That the outfit that John Hurt is wearing on set looks like a super-faded version of the Eighth Doctor's  'promotional' outfit introduced in 2010(which had a pic of Paul McGann in the outfit). A blue leather jacket with those same buttons.

New spinoff

Doctor Who: The Time War

They should make a feature length movie of the Time War. That deserves the big screen treatment it would be so epic.

ShawnDoc: and he balked at doing it and allowed them to live.

He didn't so much balk as navel gaze until the moment had passed.

Genesis of the Daleks is a really good Fourth Doctor serial. One of the best.

ActionJoe: Also, the Doctor still doesn't have huge reservations about wiping out entire races.

He always gives them the choice to give up and change their ways. The Daleks give him pause in NuWho's "Dalek" and "Daleks Take Manhattan". The ending monologue from "Human Nature" kind of makes it apparent how fearsome he could be if he wanted to, but makes the conscious choice not to.

Maybe Hurt Doctor didn't give someone the choice to repent, and that is his sin.

The Doctor will have as many regeneration as the ad revenue allows.

The Doctor's number of regenerations isn't really worth arguing about. A different number for how many times he can regen has been stated on multiple occasions. Ranging from around 7 (I think) to over five hundred. Plus instances where he gained more regnerations, such as River sacrificing her remaining regens to save the Matt Smith Doctor's current form. Also, we have no real evidence that the so called 12 regenerations is a physical limit. It could very well be just a Gallifreyan law of some sort that can't be enforced anymore due to the Time War.

So it's likely, even if we only acknowledge the context of what we know about The Doctor thus far, that he can regenerate as many times as he needs to. Or in the very least he can regen enough times as to make having an upper limit a moot point.

As for John Hurt, my money's on the theory that he's the true 9th Doctor, and the subsequent regenerations just pretend he doesn't exist out of shame.

Guntram Shatterhand: He chose it.

And, as messy as the episodes lately have been, that was the clear shining beacon of "THIS IS THE FACKING POINT OF THE STORY". If you missed that, you got terribly distracted.

Capital A: Can we all just admit that this show has become a convoluted mess? I really liked Matt Smith's first series but it's been all downhill after that for me.

Apparently we can't, since I really like the show and where it's gone. This season has been really good IMHO, and Matt Smith might be my favorite Doctor at this point. I'm looking forward to more.

I have a tire iron that I wanna use to make Steven Moffat's brain hurt for gypping us out of learning the Doctor's true name after a year of hype.

Mugato: SockMonkeyHolocaust: Hey, can we get a spoilers tag for people who have never seen the series but think that one day they might be interested in seeing it but probably not?

What he said. Actually I don't really care about spoilers but I've never seen the series but might check it out someday if I'm bedridden with malaria or something and it's the only thing on. So what's his real name?
