Just so long as he gets a better fucking last line than "I don't want to go".

I suggested to a mate of Moffat's recently that the Eleventh's last words should be "What bus?"

From what Moffat has said it looks like he's expanding that one line into the basis for the entire episode. So he'll probably wind up curled up in a ball in the corner of the TARDIS crying, "I don't want to die."

Well, when you had the Eleventh Doctor basically running around in the sixth series, trying to avoid his death... I don't think they'll treat his regeneration as an imminent one.

At least, I hope they won't.

I'll try and track down the actual quote when I have more time but basically Moffat said that he'll be afraid of what he's going to change into next and fighting against it. (Which makes sense I suppose since as the 12th Doctor, the Valeyard should be next.)

I'd be tempted to go with Geronimo...but actually what might work would be a semi-conscious "Come along, Pond." said with a dreamy smile.

I thought it was a fucking great last line. What the fuck was wrong with it?

It made him sound a little whiny!

That said I quite liked it, certainly his delivery of it.

The line made sense, because he really DIDN'T want to go. And, it was a great antithesis to his trademark line: Allons-y*!

*(its French, for Lets Go!)

Was this what you meant?

"His appetites and his enthusiasm will change. And thatís sort of what Iím writing about now in Mattís last episode, the fact that heís terribly aware that heís about to be rewritten. And itís frightening..."

Made him sound like a whiny selfish coward who wasn't about to just have a face change...

But then, this is Ten we're talking about.

Oh well, at least if it does go that way we'll only get one episode of him moping about rather than two...

Written by a man who's never met an emotion he's failed to express adequately. (Unless you count snark as an emotion.)
