River gave him all her regenerations in Let's Kill Hitler. We have no idea how many he has left. Let's Kill Hitler was a terrible episode, but that was a very smart move by Moffat, as it allowed future producers to avoid that issue unless they wanted to directly deal with it. A very nice move, unlike Davies refusing to un-fuck the Daleks before he left, so Moffat / Gatiss had to blow Victory of the Daleks in order to re-establish that they were Out There, Doing Bad Things.

One of my favorite Tennant moments is from "The End of Time" when he talks to Wilf about the bad things he's done and how regeneration feels like dying. He basically breaks down. It was very well done.
Right. Another example is in The Sound of Drums, when the Doctor talks about Gallifrey, and how Time Lord children eventually have to look into the Time Vortex, and some go mad, some run, etc. And then Jack asks him what he did, and the Doctor's all, "Pfft, I said fuck that noise." When Tennant was allowed to be contemplative instead of an exaggerated caricature, he killed it. Most of the time, though, the scripts / direction just didn't allow for it.

Tennant's acting in The Idiot's Lantern belonged in the circus.

I saw that more as River giving up her remaining regenerative energy (and thus any future regenerations) to resuscitate the Doctor, not giving him actual regenerations.

As for Smith leaving at the end of the year, it's a bummer. Weird thing is it doesn't seem as though he's been around for almost 4 years already. He still seems like the new guy. I was like, What? Regenerating already?? Though his performances as the Doctor could be way too manic at times, overall I will miss him.

Definitely doesn't feel like 4 years. At least he lasted longer than Chris and Colin. I really liked Matt's Doctor, second only to Tom Baker in my opinion.

Colin Morgan (Merlin) would be a good replacement if they wanted to stick with youth.

I'd prefer Bradley James to Morgan.

Re: Matt Smith's Departure Confirmed.

I've seen on Tumblr that some people would like Idris Elba, but I do wonder if they will go with someone who is not very well know again?
It helps keep the wage bill down.

Re: Matt Smith's Departure Confirmed.

Well, darn, that is sad news. I'll miss him. I wasn't expecting that he'd stay much longer but I was hoping for another season. Thanks to all the interruptions and delays, it doesn't feel like 3 seasons!

I would think Idris Elba is too expensive? - he's not A-level but he must be pulling down far more cash for the odd role in things like Palfic Rim, Promethus, Thor etc - I know he's doing a little more Luther but I think the contracts on that were signed a while ago. Moreover, since he is already regularly getting work over in the states is he going to want to tie himself down like that?

After seeing her in Rev. and the Reggie Perrin remake, how about Lucy Liemann?

I'd love Elba but Joe is right; he'd be difficult to get.
