@BollingerKnickers If you ever want to talk, I'm here. I don't care that we don't know each other in 'real life' - you're me mate, and that means I love you. And actually...and you may not believe me, or think I'm being stupid, but...I understand what you mean.

Mummy on the Orient Express sounds like it could be a standalone almost as good as Midnight!

@TardisBoy I think the show is strong enough to take risks, and a show that doesn't take risks can become stale.

However, I don't want you to mistake this for me disagreeing with you - I fully understand where you're coming from, and actually think it's a really interesting debate - I'd love to see what you think after the episode! :)

@TardisBoy People have been worried about being offended - but we're forgetting that there is a whole half a series left after The Caretaker - I like the idea of, later on, the Doctor's views in this episode being challenged, leading to some nice character moments where he is forced to admit he is wrong.

But I suppose it's unfair of me to start thinking like this until I've at least seen The Caretaker!

Scene of 2013 - the Quarter Finals

The final quarter final, is, in my opinion, disappointingly easy...!

The Day of the Doctor (The 13 Doctors) VS The Bells of Saint John (Miss Kizlet defeated)

-to be clear, not the Doctor's ride up the Shard, but the events following that.

@TARDlSkey Because he was so great, I'd like to see him return changed by his new memories - perhaps he's now a nastier person, changed as a direct result of the Doctor's actions, calling his tampering with other people into question, and posing the question whether or not he right he has the right to change him back.

Or not, that could well be rubbish...!

Scene of 2013 - The Quarter Finals

I'm sorry, I'm so so sorry. I thought this would be the final, back before we'd even voted on the moments. But I didn't want any hand in how things went, so I picked each initial 'face-off' randomly, and since then I've always known this was coming, and even now I'm still not sure what I'll go for. Two of the best scenes of the last 50 years, forget 2013! Ah well, hope you are able to make a decision!

An Adventure in Space and Time (Hartnell sees the future) VS The Day of the Doctor (Never Cruel or Cowardly)

An Adventure in Space and Time - Hartnell sees the future: https ://www.youtube.com/watch?v=S9wtQay5yu8

The Day of the Doctor (Never cruel or cowardly): Okay, so I couldn't find a clip of this, sorry. I mean, we all know how this amazing moment goes. But I thought I'd find something, so here's a fan-made video that includes it. As amazing as the video is, we're only looking at the 'what is the Doctor' to the 'never cruel or cowardly' stuff - the projection basically. h ttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v4z2HaiJZnc

I wouldn't vote for The Curse of the Black Spot, but I certainly don't think it's as bad as it's made out to be - if nothing else, it's an entertaining 45 minutes, with a few funny lines and a nice moment or two - nothing special, but not deserving of the Fear Her/Love & Monsters treatment, I feel.

The Eighth Doctor Regenerates (The Night of the Doctor) VS Christmas Cracker (The Time of the Doctor)

So, I couldn't find a clip only of the 8th Doctor's regeneration, but it should show a cut down version - if not, we're only looking at the regeneration scene itself: http ://youtu.be/-U3jrS-uhuo?t=5m3s

Scene of 2013

Okay, final 'heat':

The Time of the Doctor ("If you want my life") vs An Adventure in Space and Time (Hartnell sees the future

The Time of the Doctor ("If you want my life")

Doctor: Sorry I’m a bit slow. May not be at my best right now.

Dalek: You are dying, Doctor.

Doctor: Yes, I am dying. You’ve been trying to kill me for centuries, and here I am, dying of old age. If you want something done, do it yourself.

Dalek: You will die and the Time Lords will never return.

Doctor: You still can’t work up the courage to shoot me, can you? You’re still worried I’ve got something up my sleeve! Well you knock yourselves out boys. I’ve got nothing this time.

Daleks shoot at the screaming people of Christmas.

Suddenly, in the sky, the shape of a crack yawns open – a light slithers out, and into the Doctor. His hands start to glow.

Dalek: You will die now, Doctor. This is the end of you! The rules of regeneration are known. You have expended all your lives!

Doctor: Sorry, what did you say? Did you mention the rules? Now, listen, bit of advice. Tell me the truth is you think you know it, lay down the law if you’re feeling brave but, Daleks, never, ever tell me the rules!

Dalek: Emergency, emergency! The Doctor is regenerating! The Doctor is regenerating!

Doctor: Oh, look at this! Regeneration number 13 – we’re breaking some serious science here boys! I’ll tell you what, it’s going be a whopper! Ha ha!

Dalek: Exterminate! Exterminate the Doctor!

Doctor: You think you can stop me now Daleks? If you want my life – ha ha! – come and get it!!!

The Doctor spins his arm around, and a stream of golden light bursts from it, destroying a Dalek.

Clara: Get inside! Get off the street, get inside, quick, quick!

The Doctor spins the other arm and destroys another Dalek. He laughs.

Doctor: Love from Gallifrey, boys!

And his head erupts in light, shooting upwards. The Dalek ship and all of Trenzalore is decimated.


An Adventure in Space and Time (Hartnell sees the future)

Troughton: Well then, who’s who?

Patrick Troughton walks over and shakes William Hartnell’s hand.

Troughton: I won’t lie to you, I’m scared stiff.

Hartnell: Oh, you’ll be fine. In fact, you’ll be wonderful. I told them you know. There’s only one man in England who can take over.

Troughton: Oh, couldn’t they get him?

Everyone laughs. But amongst that, the two men share a solemn nod. And that music starts.

Hartnell reaches into the set and turns on the TARDIS time rotor.

Man: Red light, bell!

A bell rings.

Man: Okay, positions everyone please.

Hartnell places his hands on the console. Except he’s not Hartnell now. Now, he is the Doctor.

Man: And...roll to record in fifteen...

Hartnell flips a switch, then slowly looks up, right at us. And standing there, a look of awe and respect on his face, is the 11th Doctor. The 11th Doctor smiles, and Hartnell smiles back. The 11th Doctor flicks some switches, then, just as Hartnell had done, he places his hands on the console. And we get the best bit of music of 2013...? Probably? This isn’t really the place for me to ponder that....

The camera lingers on Hartnell, just as the smile lingers on his face. We see there is nothing where the 11th Doctor seemed to be. Except it wasn’t the 11th Doctor William Hartnell was seeing, of course. It was the future. And it was glorious.

Scene of 2013

2 more 'heats' to go!

This one is the regeneration face-off! But the last one...I don't know if I can pick between the two...! But that's for next time - this time:

The Night of the Doctor (Regeneration) VS The Time of the Doctor (Regeneration)

The Night of the Doctor (Regeneration)

Doctor: Warrior.

Ohila: Warrior?

Doctor: I don’t suppose there’s any need for a Doctor any more. Make me a warrior now.

Ohila: I took the liberty of preparing this one myself (hands him a chalice)

Doctor: Get out GET OUT! All of you.

They start to leave

Doctor: Will it hurt?

Ohila: Yes.

Doctor: Good. Charley, C’rizz, Lucie, Tamsin, Molly, friends, companions I’ve known I salute you. And Cass...I apologise. Physician, heal thyself.

The Doctor drinks from the chalice, then drops it. His hands glow, and he groans, and convulses. He regenerates.


The Time of the Doctor (Regeneration)

The Doctor walks up the steps of the TARDIS, young again.

Clara: Doctor!

Doctor: Hello.

Clara: You’re young again. You’re okay. You didn’t even change your face.

Doctor: Ha! It’s started. I can’t stop it now, this is just the reset. Whole new regeneration cycle, oh!

He has some fish fingers and custard. Clara laughs.

Doctor: Taking a bit longer. Just breaking it in.

He pulls a leaver, and the TARDIS takes off.

Doctor: It all just disappears, doesn’t it? Everything you are, gone in a moment like breath on a mirror. Any moment now, he’s a-coming.

Clara: Who’s coming?

Doctor: The Doctor.

Clara: You. You are the Doctor.

Doctor: Yep. And I always will be.

He raises a glowing hand.

Doctor: But times change and so must I.

He looks round, and suddenly the TARDIS is full of colourful children’s drawings of the Doctor’s heroics. Amelia runs past.

Doctor: Amelia!

Clara looks round, and we see that really, there’s nothing there.

Clara: Who’s Amelia?

Doctor: The first face this face saw.

Amelia runs round the TARDIS.

Doctor: We all change. When you think about it, we are all different people, all through our lives. And that’s okay, that’s good, you gotta keep moving so long as you remember all the people that you used to be. I will not forget one line of this. Not one day. I swear.  I will always remember when the Doctor was me.

And now, walking down the stairs, it’s Amy Pond. She smiles, and puts a hand to the Doctor’s face, and he puts a hand to hers.

Amy: Raggedy man. Good night.

Again we see no one is there.

The Doctor removes his bow tie, and lets it fall to the floor. He closes his eyes.

Clara: No, no! Please don’t change.

The Doctor lurches back in an orange glow, and suddenly, he regenerates.
