    Lets speculate about the Xmas special. It's going to be very odd to have a regeneration. I wonder if the regen will happen in the last scene or sooner. I would actually prefer him to regenerate half way thru the episode and have the rest of the Episode to start to get to know him and resolve the Xmas Plot. And it would be less sad. Thoughts?

    He should regenerate inside a box. And then someone can unwrap the new Doctor on Christmas morning.

    I had a dream about a month ago... 11 uses his regeneration to defeat his opponents in the christmas special.

    I think the regeneration should be at the end of the anniversary special, and the Christmas episode can be for the all new Doctor, so that way we don't just get a tease at the end and have to speculate how it'll translate to a series.

    I have to agree - I do want to see the new Doctor at least get a chance to do SOMETHING before we have a YEAR wait to see him doing anything besides 'production' stills.

    I think the BBC would be very stupid in simply having us have a teaser that has to last almost a full year before we get another series. At least a half episode... or they could a sort of 'two Doctors' story with 11 and 12 together, like a way to let 11 have a 'good bye' and for 12 to sorta get his feet wet

    I don't want Smith to regenerate at the end of the anniversary because that episodes is about the past, IE the 10th Doctor, Rose, the Zygons, and the 8.5th doctor. The 11th Doctors regeneration should be centred around him. But I would like more than a small cameo of the twelfth doctor. Why we get series 8 in fucking August I don't know. What is it with bastard Moffat and his long gaps? Series 8 should start in May at the minimum, we basically go through the best part of the year before we see doctor who.

    But in the xmas special, I'd like about at least five minutes with the twelfth doctor. Or maybe Smith regenerates about three quarters into the episode as we've had a doctor regenerate at the end or beginning of an adventure, but never in one. Would be interesting. But I'd like the vast majority with Smith still. But instead of waiting for the end to see the 12th doctor, I'd rather enjoy the episode for what it is instead if be desperate to see a couple minutes of the new doctor. That's where I feel I went wrong with End of Time. I just kept thinking "is he regenerating yet, is he regenerating yet?"

    As for the actual episode itself, would you guys rather have a classic villain recurring villain, or a completely new one?
