Time Lords can be shot and killed we saw that The Deadly Assassin and another one was knifed in the back, Goth also died of his injuries in that story. Regeneration isn't a cure all and even the Doctor needed a push at times to regenerate.
The greatest science fiction series of all time is
Doctor Who! And I'll take you all on, one-by-one
or all in a bunch to back it up!"

to the PINNACLE series of Doctor Who books
