Finally got around to iPlayering the finale of the Doctor Who season. Wow. I've been a big fan of season 7, feels like it's a real homage to the original, only sassed up a bit with Clara as the companion.

But what is going on with the John Hurt storyline? I can't wait for November. But before I say any more, I forget, how far behind (if at all) is DW in the colonies?

I'm pretty sure its current here. I watched it Sunday night via something like, but not quite the same as iPlayer. [Razz]

I'm really not sure - I'm wondering if it's anything like the Christmas special from ~2 years ago.

I haven't kicked into analytical mode yet - I'm still in a bit of shock at the November bit. I kind of thought the 'Doctor-lite' episode recently was a hint that a finally was in the works, but I guess I thought wrong. (Or perhaps they spent their budget on the grave?)

It airs here on Sunday night, which, due to (wibbly-wobbly timey-wimey technobabble), is about 14 hours after the UK airing.

Getting a bit tired of the whole "you can't cross your own timeline - unless the writers want you to" thing. The Doctor has crossed his own timeline so often I half expect to find out he's his own father.

Okay,

Big time speculation from a looooong time Doctor Who fan.

First the setup for those who only know Doctor Who from the 9th on. The 4th Doctor had a companion named Romana who was also from Gallifrey. She of course was a Time Lady and also could regenerate. When she did she tried out like four or five different bodies before settling on one. Now I don't think she used up four or five regenerations. That would be crazy. We know from the Christmas invasion that the 10th was able to reform his hand that was cut off because of residual energy. I believe this explains how Romana was able to do this.

So my theory is that near the end of the Time War, the 8th had to regenerate because he was dying. He regenerates into the "John Hurt" Doctor. While still fresh from his regeneration, he does something that disgraces the name of the Doctor to end the Time War. I do not think it's the genocide of the Daleks and the Time Lords. The Doctor has one motive, to protect the innocent, to heal. Remember the episode with the space whale that New Britain was built on. He thought he was going to have to destroy its mind to save all the people. Remember what he said. "I will have to find a new name because I won't be the Doctor anymore." It would have crossed the line. I think ending the Time War caused innocent lives to be destroyed and that what he did was the direct cause of it.

This devastated him so much and since he had regeneration energy left in him he caused himself to change again before it would cost him another one. So he is an in between as it were. This explains why Clara did not see him since it was for only a short time.

Somehow he will of course show up in the next episode, probably due to the 11th jumping into his "time scars" to save Clara.

Big thing that has me in a bit of a snit....

Series 7 part 2 with the exception on 2 episodes has been lackluster...

We get the 50th in November...

A Christmas Special.

After this NOTHING till Autumn 2014....

Moffat, if not careful could kill the show... As genius as he and Mark Gatiss are, they are treading a fine line.

Score-wise, Murray Gold and orchestrator Ben Foster have done well this series!

FYI: Just saw this on NYT:
http://artsbeat.blogs.nytimes.com/2013/06/02/doctor-who-star-matt-smith-is-leaving-the-series/?hp

Since there's no mention of John Hurt, I expect that's a red herring, but blimey...

From http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/entertainment-arts-22741493

"Somewhere out there right now - all unknowing, just going about their business - is someone who's about to become the Doctor," Moffat hinted
That suggests to me that it definitely won't be John Hurt. Moffat has hinted on the radio that it might be a female reincarnation for the Doctor next

T'would be cool if he was regenerated as Susan Foreman, then s/he could be his/her own grandfather/granddaughter.

It's entirely possible he's trolling us, but Wil Wheaton has suggested that he knows who has already been cast as the next Doctor.
