Re: Moffat Talks 13th, sorry, 12th Doctor

I'm not sure I want another story where the Doctor is aware that his regeneration is coming up. It's a little too metatextual. Granted, the Fourth Doctor had warning of his impending demise from the Watcher, but it didn't really affect the way the story unfolded, and we, the viewers, didn't know that he knew the end was coming until it happened. But we just had Tennant's run end with a story -- heck, an entire arc -- where he had advance warning that his demise was coming, and Smith's whole run so far has been dominated by prophecies about the Doctor's imminent death, and I'm just getting a little tired of it.
