    If the last episode is any indication, the next Doctor will be 'an old man.'

    Yeah she's good, but underdeveloped, which is what I'm saying.

    Sad news for sure. Been a great 3 years though, and excited for whoever comes next! Definitely hope Clara sticks around.

    What do you mean, "when a doctor leaves"?

    I'll miss him, he's been enjoyable in the role. I would've been surprised to see him leave any later than the end of Series, but, it's a bummer nonetheless that he's only got the 2 Specials left (It'd be cool if the Anniversary Special is a 3-Parter: Name of The Doctor/Anniversary Special/Xmas Special)

    Definitely would like to see Clara stay on for another Doctor

    Probably. :-; It has to be someone available to shoot a regen scene in September and a full season soon after, after all...

    What, at Xmas again? Let's hope they can get another good one- remember he doesn't have to be white, or under 30, or male. Though obviously the best female option has already played the part - I mean Joanna Lovely, er, Lumley. Though Alex Kingston would have worked too...

    Oh, wait,

    Can I start a Tilda Swinton for the 12th Doctor petition?

    Anyway...

    That should probably have said when the new Doctor arrives. When the Doctor leaves that's more of a sadness, but when we meet the new doctor, I always see the "this is the best doctor ever" posts. The best example was when Tennant was in the prime of his run, people loved him. Now, I get the sense he's not fondly remembered. And let's not count how many instances there's been of bashing RTD because of Moffat lately.

    :( Shitty news, still not decided if 11th beats 10th but he' still been a great Doctor and will be sorry to see him go. I wonder if Stephen going to following soon as well or will he stay on to ride out 12.

    so who will be 12?

    I'll miss him but I love regeneration stories. Hopefully Moffat will abandon RTD's light show regeneration effect in favour of something suitably weird.

    Well, I'm bummed. Smith has been my favorite Doctor so far. I know it had to happen, but I was hoping he and Clara would get a another full season together.

    Sad to see Matt depart, but I guess all things must have an ending (even though the Doctor hates endings). Matt Smith was fantastic from the beginning and was my favourite Doctor, really a tough act to follow.
    A few ideas already:

    I hope the next doctor is a black woman with red hair - all bases covered :)

    I'm truly bummed.

    I think Smith has done a great job as The Doctor. I wish he'd stay another season or two.

    But then again, at the time I didn't think anyone could top Tennant, so hopefully lightning will strike again.

    Well done, Matt!

    I knew a girl like that when I studied in Strasbourg. Algerian, smelled of cinnamon....

    Haven't thought of her for ages... And as for bases, well...

    Honestly I think the last half of season 7 has felt like an end to the 11th doctor. He went to Trenzalore and overall it's felt like the end.
