@Ivegotnewkidneys on the 23rd A dark series doesn't mean every episode has to be dark. Series 4 was probably the darkest of the new series, but that still had Partners in Crime and The Unicorn and the Wasp.

@MatthewBagnall @A Friend of the Ood "He didn't choose to clarify, as such he was referring to everyone in a general sense."

The only people who could hate Capaldi hate him because they think he's too old. Series 8 hasn't even started. There's no way anyone could possibly hate him because of how he plays the part until we actually see him.

@MatthewBagnall @A Friend of the Ood “You’ll watch the show anyway. You go on the journey the Doctor takes you on no matter who is playing him.”

That doesn't sound obnoxious at all to me.

"Automatically assuming every fan of the show will stay if they dislike the interpretation of the Doctor is a little foolish."


And how do they know if they dislike Capaldi's interpretation of the Doctor? The people he's talking about hate Capaldi because they think he's too old and he isn't Matt Smith. They haven't seen enough to know if they dislike his interpretation.

@edoe101 @TomLong2 You do realize episodes aren't written in the order they're broadcasted, right? They probably had a meeting and decided how his character was going to be and wrote the episodes at around the same time.

@MatthewBagnall Most fans will keep watching. It has nothing to do with being "trained" or whatever, he just knows that fans aren't going to stop watching just because there's a new Doctor.

@OttoVonBismarck The show didn't get canceled because it was getting darker. It got cancelled because of the idiots at the BBC who didn't like the show and wanted to cancel it. McCoy's last two seasons were the best of the 80s.

He's asking because he knows the answer and wants fans to figure it out by watching the classic series. That's all. He's not saying the Doctor isn't an alien. 

Your quote is out of context. He was talking about why the first episode, An Unearthly Child, wasn't when it was confirmed that he was an alien.

@The_Doctor_ If McGann's series was marketed as a spin off I don't think it would be confusing at all to have two Doctors at the same time. It would only be confusing if they tried to call both series Doctor Who.

@VidarRaven It still doesn't make sense. There are things that live in the Time Vortex, they didn't become Time Lords. Every time traveler would be exposed to the Time Vortex, they don't all become Time Lords. So why did River? Just because she was conceived in the TARDIS? That doesn't make sense.

@SonicTheHedgehogRules Davros was taken out of the Time War. Remembrance was part of the Time War. In The Stolen Earth, he didn't look that much different from in Revelation except that he had the metal hand. In Remembrance he looked completely different.

@Ollie Walton Harrod @Doctor What @ShameOnSM @DaftDalek The Doctor was erasing all records of himself, that's why he "apparently didn't exist". That wasn't connected to the Oswin Dalek deleting him from their memory (which still doesn't make sense to me, they're not a hive mind).

@Amy is Hannibal Amy and Rory were never actually killed off. They were sent back in time and lived to be very old. That doesn't count. Oswin and Clara only died to set up the "Impossible Girl" arc. The rest were characters who were in only one episode. He hasn't actually killed anyone important.

To everyone posting that quote from Rose over and over and over again:

Read the question! He's not saying "The Doctor isn't an alien", he's asking "When was the first time the Doctor is confirmed to not be human". The first time is definitely NOT in the new series.

@Timhogan Regeneration has been explained a few times. One theory is that Rassilon modified the DNA for regeneration. Zagreus had a similar answer. I like this explanation more than the "exposure to the time vortex" explanation in A Good Man Goes to War.

Humans have artron energy too. It's necessary for regeneration, but it doesn't cause it.

@ClownPrinceoCrime14 I'm not sure I like the idea of Gallifreyans evolving from humans, but their culture in the show doesn't prove or disprove anything. Culture changes over time. Also, like humans, they aren't all exactly the same. 


The Doctor and the Time Lords might not know the exact history of Gallifrey. They only know everything they do about Rassilon and Omega through stories. The Matrix probably doesn't even go back far enough to have detailed information on the beginning of the Time Lords. Even if it could, it wouldn't be hard for someone like Rassilon to alter the facts.

@jlocoleman @A Friend of the Ood In Revelation of the Daleks, Davros' hand was shot off. In Journey's End he had a new metal hand. In Remembrance he looked completely different, but that was obviously after Revelation because of the Imperial vs Renegade Dalek conflict. So it only makes sense that, from Davros' point of view, Journey's End was before Remembrance. 

It also makes sense because the destruction of Skaro was part of the Time War. Skaro was destroyed in Remembrance, therefore Remembrance was part of the Time War. Dalek Caan took him out of the Time War.

@JolomontheCube The Untempered Schism is on Gallifrey. It's that circular wormhole type thing with the Time Vortex in it that we saw in The Sound of Drums, the one that the Master looked into and became insane. All Time Lords are exposed to the Time Vortex through the Untempered Schism.
