But there's only one for the Doctor to get more lives and that's from the Time Lords
Well, that's unimaginative.
While other races in Doctor Who can regenerate like the Kastrians, so far only the Time Lords can grant oterh Time Lords new lives.

In Dalek the Doctor said that he could feel if there were any other Time Lords left, the Master became human in order to hide himself.
Except the Doctor can't sense River or Jenny. And he specifically said that, if Time Lords were in a pocket universe, he couldn't sense them either (The Doctor's Wife). It's entirely possible there are reasons they can't be sensed either.
Neither River nor Jenny are Time Lords though. And yes River did get her other lives from the TARDIS durin conception, if it were that easy all Time Lords would live well beyond their normal limit.

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
