So you're going to hate what's coming at Christmas then?
Depends how whiny, selfish and cowardly his last line is.

Hope to hell the Doctor doesn't go into the final story with foreknowledge of his impending regeneration, I would rather see a return to the classic formula of him dying for whatever universe shattering reason and accepting his fate. The last few minutes of the End of Time only made it more difficult for audiences to accept Matt's Doctor.

Just so long as he gets a better fucking last line than "I don't want to go".
I thought it was a fucking great last line. What the fuck was wrong with it?

A changed that he considered was almost like dying. Made him more of a real person rather than this Timelord Victorious laughing in the face of death stuff.

Would like it if the Doctor didn't foresee his regeneration. We already had similar situations with series 6 and with the way 10 went out.

The idea of him seeing it coming isn't limited to the new series of course, take Four/The Watcher/Five

It wasn't. That was the whole point of the line, and in fact, of the entire scene.

True that. But it was just one Doctor ago that had this same reaction. 11 Doc also thought he was gonna die permanently in series 6.

All the more reason for 11 not to see it coming. We spent, what, two years having him freaking out about dying only to outsmart it in the end? And then ANOTHER episode about his death, where we see his tomb. Enough, already! Regeneration isn't death anyway, you live on...just changed.

I want to see a great Doctor Who episode that stands amazingly watchable in its own right, and then at the end the doctor just doesn't quite make it out in one piece and needs to regenerate. Channel "Caves" not "End of Time."

Unfortunately Moffat's already said that it's about the Doctor being afraid of what he's going to turn into next.

I hope the idiots who bitch at one line in Tennant's last episode will scale up their bile over a whole story in similar territory.
