This helps retcon the ever-changing age of the Doctor in the new series, too. The War certainly screwed a lot of continuity right up, and now he's left counting or not counting the years he spent IN it.

Longer.

Look at the reflection.

Somehow they cast a 20 year old John Hurt for this webisode.

That's it? That's all we get? I'm disappointed in you. I expected we'd need to be peeling you off the Forum Walls from your excitement
I thought that if this would happen, I'd too need peeling off the forum walls from excitement. But I was just left speechless. Plus I was running low on time before dinner. . Okay, here's it done properly:

This has definitely made my day, fantastic! I think McGann's costume is a great mix of the 96 version and more modern versions. He has a more Troughton trampish style to his costume now; he seems to have retained his wonder and adventure in the universe! A series possibly of mini episodes would have been great, but I'm more than satisfied with this! Moffat has actually exceeded my expectations for a change, I had a nasty feeling it could have just been a boring episode with John Hurt talking about the time war in minimal detail or something, but giving McGann a regeneration and and actual explanation behind the cause of regeneration and a clue to why there's this new doctor we never knew about was just fantastic! I'm definitely a happy bunny!

YES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

More to come soon.

Re: The Night Of The Doctor

After downloading & watching at home, with proper speakers, it does seem like a real regeneration, rather than some temporary option.

Why would he be dead from a crash anyway? How would that defeat his regeneration ability?

I'm as much in awe that they kept this under their collective hats for however long they did. I'm a spoiler whore, but this takes me back to the 70's & 80's when we had to wait to find things out.

Yea, I'm really glad it came as a surprise that it was actually true. I don't like too many Spoilers, but, damn it, you put it down in front of me, I'll almost certainly lap it up

Re: The Night Of The Doctor

I don't think a crash necessarily would defeat his regeneration ability, but it's clear that you aren't guaranteed to regenerate. Getting shot mid-regeneration, apparently, could stop it, for example.

Being dead from a crash is pretty straight forward, though. The Doctor died from a relatively mediocre fall before, so he almost certainly would die from a crash from space.

Re: The Night Of The Doctor

I would think that the trauma of the really violent crash could have killed him too fast for him to regenerate...Turn Left sets a precedent for the Doctor being killed too quickly for the process to start.

Hmm I just popped in Brain of Morbius, McGann narrates a 30 minute documentary about the story. Synchronicity.

I was always slightly confused by the Third Doctor's death; mostly that he appeared to actually "die", until K'Anpo kick starts his regeneration for him. The thing is he had plenty of time to do this himself before the end.

But for a Timelord, dying & not regenerating are pretty different things. It seems most things that would kill us would kill h the Doctor.

A throw-away line about something during the crash negating the regeneration would have been nice.

Re: The Night Of The Doctor

OMFG! I was screaming like a fraking idiot.

Loved it!

How in the name off all thats apparently holy, did Moff and the BBC keep this under their hats. Seriously, i love Moff for this.

Since 1996 when i watched the movie air, i was only 12 btw, i have loved McGanns doctor. Fair play, his material he had for it was limited, but he put on a decent doctor and ballanced the mad with the emotion and drama perfectly.

When he appeared again, in an 'apparent' regen ep, which i am not taking as gospel just yet, i was so so sooooooooo excited. I still cannot believe what i saw earlier.

I knew we were getting A doctor, but never did i imagine McGann. He has denied it on so many occasions. This was truly a surprise and for that, Moff, i salute you.

Loved the John Hurt facelift. Nice touch.

That is my take as well. A timelord has to have time to consciously initiate the regeneration process. So, if the death is instantly, then the timelord cannot regenerate and truly dies. The crash certainly seemed pretty violent to me. So, it would make sense to me that the doctor would have been instantly killed on impact and hence no regeneration which is why the sisters of karn intervened.
