800th Episode - 2014 Christmas Special (Rumour's/Poss. Spoilers)
 
Well I suppose as we've been chating about the 50th Anniversary Special for a while. Is it time to turn our attnetion to Matt Smith's swansong. So do we think Moffat will tie up all the lose ends from Smith's era?

So any wild guesses as to what will cause this regenreation?

It's 2013, mate.

So, is 2013 the 800th? Cos then whether 2014 is would depend on how many episodes season 8 has, which has yet to be confirmed (running Sept-Nov as already leaked means a minimum of 9 and a maximum of 13, depending on the dates)

I'll have to side with the infamous Ian Le Vine. It does take a long time between series.

Also, wouldn't the Christmas special practically be part of Series 8? All Christmas specials had been, essentially, episode 0 of the upcoming series.

Anyway, an older but more relevant post on the matter:

This time around it seems the Christmas special will more likely be the final episode of Season 7.

Given that the Complete Series 7 box set will be released later October with all series 7 episodes and Christmas specials, I shall highly doubt that.

Plus, it wouldn't be the first time a series would begin and end with different Doctors. Think Series 4 of Old Who with Hartnell/Troughton, and accordingly Series 21 with Davison/Baker (on second thought, maybe you shouldn't :p).

I think I just mean "storywise" it'll be more like the end of Season 7, rather than the beginning of a new season. Whether it's actually marketed or released that way is another matter.

Yea, I'm kinda hoping Name of the Doctor, The Anniversary Special, and The Christmas Special will be a Trilogy of sorts. Name of the Doctor introduces HurtDoctor, so, it's a Good bet, The Anniversary Special will take off from where NotD left off, and bring in Ten(nant) and Rose. So, hopefully, that Anniversary Special will lead straight into the Christmas Special and his ultimate Regeneration.

I'd dig the above structure. Would remind me of Old Who trilogies like the New Begginings Trilogy, where the Master came back, the Doctor regenerated, and the Master was defeated. In this case, the Doctor is confronted by his past, he will face his most regretful part of his past, and probably will deal with his unresolved enemies before regenerating.

I can't imagine how it must feel for Matt to read the final words of the eleventh doctor.

I bet everyone will be asking him how he feels about his exit, story-wise.

An early wager: Will it be better or worse than End of Time?

Yep, Matt Smith himself has confirmed as much.

I'm going to go with better, although it'll be hard to top the last five minutes or so of TEOT. I think it'll be a tighter story, and I think it'll resist any kind of grand tour of every companion evah!
