Oh, that's easy ... The Doctor, Captain Jack, Rory, Alonso, Ross Jenkins, Doctor 10.5, and 60s-era Jamie decide to get together and make gay porn.

Ok, ok, it "probably" won't happen ... but we never know!
You forgot Jeff (Tom Hopper) from The Eleventh Hour
So when the Doctor told him to "Get a girlfriend," I guess "GIRLFRIEND" was in really big, euphemistic quotation marks.

Personally, I would like River to continue beyond the 11th Doctor's tenure. I think that she & Jack should be like the new version of the Brigadier, a character that runs into nearly every version of the Doctor at some point or other.

I don't quite know how to end Smith's tenure. I imagine it ending with a planet exploding and the Doctor & River escaping in the TARDIS at the last minute.

But, generally, I think it should be more low-key & quirky than "The End of Time," just as Smith was more low-key & quirky compared to Tennant.

Re: What ould you do for Matt Smith's last episode/s?

I'd have a big action-y run-around that only makes a little bit of sense, once you stop and think about it. But it would include:

-- Prisoner Zero, who has been causing trouble for the Doctor in the shadoes since Series 5. He's the one to ask the question, which makes him the evilest creature in the universe.

-- The Silence. They'll make one last conentrated effort at stopping the Doctor; Also that one eye-patch lady chick appears in a flashback.

-- Strax, Jenny, Lady Vastra, and River Song are involved in the story

-- Rory's dad would also help the Doctor, to represent the Pond era

-- The Doctor would die because he refuses to answer the question, and then the Silence kill Prisoner Zero while he's in the throes of regeneration.

-- the 12th Doctor's regeneration line/entrance would have him stand up and ask, "What was the question again?" and that plotpoint would be forgotten for the rest of the series.

No giant Dalek invasions, no farewell tour, no saving the Universe. I'd have 11 sacrifice himself to save a single child, I think that'd sum up Smith's tenure rather well.
See, that feels like 10 sacrificing himself to save Wilf.
No because the Doctor sacrificed himself to save Wilf after saving the Universe/Multiverse/All of time itself...having to save Wilf was a direct result of saving all of reality, or something. Compare that with Androzani where the Doctor's entire motivation throughout the story is just saving Peri.

Re: What ould you do for Matt Smith's last episode/s?

I would like to see something we haven't seen before. I still like the idea of a de-generation where the Doctor is poisoned and starts reverting through his past incarnations; and the price of the cure is that the Matt Smith Doctor has to die and regenerate into 12.

I hear you. BUT, 10 could've walked away, Wilf wanted him to walk away. Ultimately, because of who he is, he sacrificed himself to save a single person. That was the point of that moment.

Yes, there was lots and lots of noise before that moment. But, saving Wilf was a quiet moment. Which is what I see in your idea.

Re: What ould you do for Matt Smith's last episode/s?

I'm sick of loads of regenerations being bug plot twists and instead of dying in action, he sacrifices himself for a companion or something.

No I want something big, and I want the doctor in pain! Absolute agony. Him crying out in pain. If we went with my cyberman idea (see page 1), then maybe they capture the doctor, start converting him into a cyberman by injecting him with some liquid with hurts him, or even start operating (we don't know how the very first cybermen converted, maybe they've learned to do it more humanely.) and then River or someone saves him, takes him to the TARDIS and he regenerates.

Because I'm a goth, it's what we do.

I'm evil, I enjoy seeing pain on others. Plus I think it would make it look dramatic.

Which is why it's my favourite regeneration. My favourite regeneration story is Logopilis, but my actually favourite regeneration itself is End of Time.

Re: What ould you do for Matt Smith's last episode/s?

Reminds me of this idea I had for a flashback to the Time War (or some other period back when the Time Lords were still around). I'm imagining someone inventing a device specifically designed to kill Time Lords, draining all of their regenerations at once. I'm imagining seeing these Time Lords in their death throes, desperately shifting from one regeneration to next before being extinguished altogether. I don't know what purpose a scene like this would serve but it would be a very cool image.

Maybe a dream episode--I might like to see all the previous Doctor's, perhaps in animation with dialog snipped by the original actors sewn together into something etheral.

How about having him regenerate in full on public?
