Which reminds me... in the scene below, do the Nazi soldiers who got hit by River Song's regeneration energy get Timelord abilities as well?

I figured the regeneration from Ten to Eleven was so violent because he held it back to visit the previous companions.

Ya know, kinda like how if ya have to pee a bit, but can't find a restroom, and by the time ya do, ya are stuck there for forever while very drop of liquid in your body flows out...or is that just me?
So Ten's regeneration is the regenerative equivalent of Austin Powers peeing for five minutes after he was awoken from cryogenic sleep?

Re: standing to close to tthe regenerating doctor

I wrote a fanfic once in which the eighth doctor, faced with the fall of Gallifrey and the only mechanism to defeat the Daleks damaged, he stabs himself in a heart, triggering his regeneration. He uses the energy as he regenerates to trigger 'the moment', wiping out the Daleks and time lords. He then crawls to the Tardis and escapes as the remains of the time locked universe collapses.

Might publish it on fanfiction.net sometime.

Possibly, but since the Doctor presumably didn't wipe their memories the transformation would quickly kill them. But until then, they could probably make Daleks spin uncontrollably.

Re: standing to close to tthe regenerating doctor

Hmm...just had a thought, I wonder how come the hybrids imbued with Timelord DNA in Evolution of the Daleks didn't all regenerate at the end?

Perhaps because they didn't get that specific part of the genetic code. Heck, if anything, regeneration strikes me as more of an epigenetic process, a mechanism that repairs the genes and modifies their expression. The DNA without the epigenetic component wouldn't be able to regenerate any more than a car could repair itself without a mechanic.

Or maybe regeneration isn't a purely internal process. In "The Power of the Daleks," the newborn Second Doctor explained the process of "renewal" as "part of the TARDIS." And all of the Doctor's regenerations that we've seen have happened either within the TARDIS (the first, fifth, sixth, ninth, and tenth regenerations), immediately outside it (the third), or at least within the same general area (the second, fourth, and seventh). It seems likely that the eighth regeneration happened in the TARDIS as well, since at the climax of the Time War with Gallifrey destroyed, where else could the Doctor have been and survived?

Re: standing to close to tthe regenerating doctor

Well then the Tardis must provide that function to any time Lord given the Master regenerated inside as well.

But then when Melanie Pond regenerated in that alleyway the Tardis was nowhere in sight (probably not even on the same planet or the same time)?

If I understand it correctly Timelords have some kind of symbiotic bond with their Tardis....which will surely reach across time and space? So maybe it´s not about beeing near or in a Tradis, but actually beeing "bound" to one? Mel was concieved inside the Tardis, so maybe that´s her excuse?

Re: standing to close to tthe regenerating doctor

But lord knows where the Master's Tardis was, or if it even still exists.

Plus (although strictly speaking she didn't regenerate) there's Jenny to add into the mix.
