    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.

    While I do like End Of Time, I'd like something different to it. I don't want any of this dying to save someone else either. I feel we've had enough of this for the time being. Lets have his death at the hands of one of his enemies, not saving his companion. It's a great concept, but it's being overused. Ten died saving Wilf, nine died saving Rose, five died saving Peri. While that's only three regenerations, two of them are used in the new series, and I'd like some contrast. I'd maybe like possibly the last ten or so minutes of the doctor knowing he's going to regenerate, but I don't want it dominating the episode. I would like to see fear in his eyes though, maybe even some pain. I absolutely love the scene in Planet of Spiders where the third doctor is terrified. I think something like that would work well.

    I believe that's Matt's mother


    Also, sources are saying Clara will depart the series next year


    Rumored to be at the half way mark. Well it makes sense because her story is done

    Makes you wonder how long Capaldi will stay

    I wouldn't be at all surprised if Capaldi was a one-season Doctor, TBH

    That picture makes Smith look much older for some reason. His hair looks thinner for a start. Gives a good idea of how he may looks when he's older.

    Also, Smiths mum seems cute......

    I really hope not. It's taken me four years of Smith to even warm to Smith (although I'm beginning to loave him again).

    Then again, Eccleston was a one season doctor, and he's one of the best ever. McGann was a one episode doctor and my joint favourite (with tenant). I hope Capaldi lasts at least two series. I'd also like the Valeyard to be the main antagonist in one of Capaldi's series.

    Well, the hair is a wig this time around.

    I honestly don't believe Capaldi will be a one-year-only Doctor. Eccleston was a one-off because they weren't sure if DW would be successful enough to warrant a second season, and of course Eccleston himself didn't want to return for one when they knew the show had done well. Plus, I think a three-year gurantee is part of the deal, no?

    Depends on whether or not there's a gap year in 2015 as has been rumored.

    I assume that the eighth series is Moffat's last. If there's a gap year to get a new producer up to speed with the program (as was done in 2009), then I could see Capaldi departing with Moffat when the series goes on hiatus. He's a working actor, after all. If the series doesn't go on hiatus when Moffat leaves, I could see Capaldi staying for three or four years.

    Capaldi is a life long fan so I suspect that he wants at least a couple of years to make the role his own. Having said that, I don't rule out the idea of a one-season Doctor, particularly when they've cast an actor who is in so much demand.

    It's his availability I'm thinking of.
