Clara was the worst companion in my mind. They tried to make her smarter than the doctor.. and all she cared about was "seeing something cool" even after the love of her life dies, she doesn't blink an eye. She says she is sad and all but she moves on at the drop of the hat for a more exciting life. Hated clara.. she was no Amy Pond. And I wish they would of kept Bill to interact with female doctor since Bill would of always seen her as an old man and not as a love interest.
The tardis flies itself in excitement and anticipation of the regeneration. She's trying to get to where she thinks he needs to be. Many times in the final two episodes you see the tardis start slamming around as it tries to fly itself without the doctors help to take him to his past self to make sure he regenerates and passes his regeneration energy to the tardis. They work best together, when the doctor and the tardis want to go to different destinations, they fight each other on the controls and the tardis has violent travel through the vortex.
In “the name of the doctor” he explains the tardis slowly grows as it ages/dies. Its been over 1000 years since the first doctor. Makes sense it would be a little bigger.
Im sure thats not the real reasoning for why its a little bigger now compared to he first doctors, but it works for me 😂
The first Doctor regenerated as you saw. The second was forced to regenerate. The third was poisoned and manged to get back to UNIT before regenerating in their HQ. The fourth regenerated out in a field on Earth, but his companions brought him back to the Tardis. The fifth was also poisoned and collapsed inside the Tardis after taking off. The next regenerated when the Tardis crash landed. The next did in a morgue on Earth after he was shot multiple times. The eighth Doctor regenerated on the planet Karn.
I love how many no fucks this show has. Just an episode before they tried to get us used to the idea of the doctor being female by saying that timelords have no concept of gender and that they have gone beyond our understanding of it, yet here we have the doctor being sexist, for cheap jokes. How does that work? 😂
I feel like this episode is also Murray Gold's best episode. I'm SO SAD that he's leaving, his themes are THE BEST, I really don't see anyone toping him, especially in the Doctor Who universe. This episode compiled his best scores, and uuugh oh my gooood, the "The Doctor of War" music going with the scene, compiling all the Doctors themes... wow, so badass so amazing, I just love it. And Vale. And the theme for Twelve's regeneration. I went to a DW Prom for the 50th Anniversary and it was truly one of the best experiences of my life because Murray Gold is a God of Music and Doctor Who will really lose a big part of its identity without him.
Their needs to be a proper reason to the doctor becoming female or a line or two questing the bizzadnes of it happening but do to the bbcs sjw and femnist adgenda it will not happen I hope they make series 11 good and not the male trashing stuff that we have to deal with constantly in series 9 there wasn’t as much in series 10 but still it shows through, if they wanted to do this they shouldv’e waited
To answer the question of how they go back to fighting after the Christmas truce, they mostly didn't. Most of the men didn't want to shoot the guy they traded gifts with and when ordered to fire they tended to aim too high. It took about 6 months to get the war back in full gear as that was about how long it took for both sides to switch out their front line troops. It was a hell of a story as the soldiers exchanged gifts with their enemy (gifts sent to them from home and then exchanged between the fighting soldiers). They spent the day playing football (soccer) and just hanging out.
the soldier's the last name was steward his son was brigadier general steward of UNIT and granddaughter is also member all of the doctors have meet them except for nine and ten.
the good darlek is from an episode with Clara and they shrink and go inside to fix it i think.
Brigadier Lethbridge-Stewart, aka The Brigadier, is one of the most beloved Doctor Who characters from the original series. Kate Lethbridge-Stewart from the current show is his daughter. The Brigadier helped to create UNIT, the Earth organization that often helps The Doctor.
The Captain, from this episode, is The Brigadier's grandfather.
I believe it is suggested in the 10th planet (the novel, too young for the original TV!) that the TARDIS helps the Doctor regenerate. I sort of see the Doctor going back to the TARDIS a bit like going to hospital if you are ill - its where you should be. Its only the "new" who where the TARDIS explodes when the Doctor changes. I quite like that - the TARDIS has to regenerate at the same time.
Brigadier Lethbridge-Stewart is the commander of UNIT from the Patrick Troughton era as the Doctor (Troughton was the second Doctor - the black&white face shown in the re-generation) .. and has been a character name invloved in Doctor Who for decades. en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Brigadier_Lethbridge-Stewart
Good review/reaction. Just a couple of things. About the Doctor regenerating alone: Nine regenerates with Rose, Eleven regenerates with Clara. Twelve and Ten regenerates alone, but the real difference here is that Ten is forced to regenerate, because he doesn't want to; he is angry and frustrated, in fact his regenerations is the most violent. Twelve is really too tired and just let the regeneration go. His regenerations is sweeter and the TARDIS, this time, doesn't blow up. In fact, when Thirteen arrives, the TARDIS is good. It seems more like the TARDIS tries to push her out when the Doctor touch the console. I think that they will play on the fact that the TARDIS doesn't recognize a female Doctor (plus the TARDIS is pictured like a woman) at the same way they played with Clara hating a older Doctor. It's a way to tune with the audiance, because many people don''t like a woman Doctor. In the end, the 13 Doctor will win the TARDIS trust and we will accept her as a Doctor at the same time as usual.
The guy was Lethbridge-Stewart, the great-uncle of a recurring character from Old Who, Brigadier Alistair Lethbridge-Stewart, one of the founders of UNIT, and also Kate Stewart who was in charge of UNIT during Matt Smith's and Capaldi's runs.
The Brigadier also made some appearances in The Sarah Jane Adventures (spin-off featuring the 4th Doctor's companion).
This was the earliest relative of characters The Doctor has allied with pretty much since DW began.
This 1914s soldier is the father of "The Brigadier" (AKA Brigadier Lethbridge-Stewart), the longest serving ally and Companion who was in charge of UNIT until retirement.
"The Brigadier"'s daughter (Kate Lethbridge-Stewart) has been constantly on Capaldi's run too as her father's successor in UNIT.
(QUICK FAMILY TREE: This soldier from 1914 is Brigadier's dad, Kate's granddad.)
there have been four regenerations in the relaunch....two of them have been alone Capaldi and Tenant.
He is in a whole new Regeneration cycle....he is the first of the new batch, just like Bradley was
The look is the clothes of the old Doctor...this happens every regeneration. The doctor's first episode is always Doctor no TARDIS, no Screwdriver.
Peter Capaldi - was "Liver, I don't like the color" and "do you happen to know how to fly this"
When Moffat took over one of the things that irked him was on the internet people complained about the TARDIS redesign. as a matter of fact this entire episode was Moffat pointing out all the things the fans have been whining/constructively criticizing. He aired all the grievances so the new Show-runner has a clean slate.
"How do you go from this to killing each other the next day."
They didn't. At most points along the front, the armistice lasted for several days, sometimes even as far as New Years. Eventually however the Generals and High Commands of both sides stepped in, and began to court martial or replace any officers who refused to lead assaults across No Man's Land.
On the “collections of memories” part, current understanding of self cognition and self image would indicate that your body is as critical a part of yourself as your brain. Yes your brain is you, your emotions, your memories it is the central and most critical aspect of who you are. But the alteration of the body as seen in this episode would ultimately be disastrous. Most people would not come to terms with the change and simply go mad.
Great reaction ❤. So happy you guys are doing Doctor Who again. I hope the views help push for some more!🤞🏾. Rana's reaction on fleek 👊🏾. Great ending for Capaldi's run, I still think Matt Smith's monologue is the best, and Tenant's "I don't want to go" is the most emotional for me.
Actually, here is where and who each of the first Seven Doctors was with when they regenerated and the title of the story that's in with a trailer:
First Doctor - In his stationary TARDIS, with his companions Polly Wright and Ben Jackson (the two younger people he was with at the beginning of this episode) ("The Tenth Planet" youtu.be/1apc98Uvxzg )
Second Doctor - By himself on Gallifrey, but was forced to regenerate by the Timelords when they banished him to Earth ("The War Games" youtu.be/gksakJ89qBs )
Third Doctor- With his companion Sara Jane Smith and Brigadier Gordon Alastair Lethbridge-Stewart (Kate LS's father) just outside the TARDIS ("Planet of the Spiders" youtu.be/vahgN_rXmXE )
Fourth Doctor - With his companions Tegan Jovanka, Nyssa and Adric at the base of a radio telescope ("Logopolis" youtu.be/A-ooLbvKvFs )
Fifth Doctor - With his companion Peri Brown in the stationary TARDIS ("Caves of Androzani" youtu.be/_wL7w8spxK8 ) (btw, if you do reactions to a select few classic stories, THIS is one you must do. The director of it is the one who directed the "Army of Ghosts/Doomsday" episodes during the Tennant years)
Sixth Doctor - With his companion Melanie Bush when the TARDIS crashes (beginning of "Time and the Rani" youtu.be/PeRfVr3-OeQ )
Seventh Doctor - By himself on Earth in a morgue after he died from gunshot wounds (early part of "Doctor Who: The Movie" youtu.be/tbktviLW51s)
If you like seeing the iterations of the Doctor interacting with each other, then the Normies, after someone gets a Britbox subscription, should do reactions to the two main multi-Doctor stories from Classic Doctor Who:
- The Three Doctors: from 1973, this was the 10th anniversary story, which features the Third Doctor (Jon Pertwee), the Second Doctor (Patrick Troughton) and the First Doctor (William Hartnell, in his last ever performance before his death in 1975; See my comment in the "An Adventure in Space and Time" reaction vid about his performance in this story).
- The Five Doctors: From 1983, this was the 20th anniversary story, which features the Fifth Doctor (Peter Davison), the Third Doctor (Jon Pertwee), the Second Doctor (Patrick Troughton) and the First Doctor (who this time was played by an older lookalike actor named Richard Hurndall [who, funny enough, passed away a few weeks after the story aired]) The Fourth Doctor (Tom Baker) did not appear along with the other Doctors because Baker didn't want to do it. So what the producers did was they showed a clip from an unfinished story from 1979 called "Shada", and added a CGI effect to abduct the Doctor in that scene.
C'mon, Nahid; make this happen!
Brigadier Lethbridge Stewart was head of UNIT for 2nd, 3rd, 4th, 5th & 7th Doctors, big part of the series and Matt Smith's Doctor, although he didnt see him, called Lethbridge Stewart his best friend and did a small tribute to him when the actor died (he tried to call him on the Tardis phone and his nurse said he had died - at that point Matt Smith's Doctor decides to go to Lake Silencio to face his own death). Kate Lethbridge Stewart is the current head of UNIT for Matt & Peter was the Brigadier's daughter - the Captain in this Episode is the Brigadier's father, Kate's Grandfather, that is the connection to the Doctor(s)
Brigadier Lethbridge-Stewart was a classic character who appeared throughout the 70s with a couple of appearances in the 80s, and then appeared in the Sarah Jane Adventures in 2008 just before Nicholas Courtney (the actor) who played him died. He is the father of current Unit chief Kate Stewart who we have seen many times now.
I don’t like that the Doctor was sexist. It doesn’t make sense, one episode ago the Doctor was saying that time lords are beyond such trivial things as gender, and yet the Doctor is sexist? It doesn’t make sense. I get that they did it for the “laughs” but I just roll my eyes whenever they make these type of jokes in Doctor Who, I really hope they don’t do them during Jodie’s run. Please you don’t need to make men look stupid to make women look strong, they can be strong supported by strong male chracters please just stop this. They made the Doctor an idiot to make Clara look smarter and better, just don’t
"The old 1960's feeling...women supposed to clean, they [Moffat] did it really well" - Except that the First Doctor was never like that. The ironic thing is, the First Doctor wasn't even part of our time in the 1960s, he was ahead of time itself!
So projecting the values and sensibilities of the 1960s onto a timeless, superior being who transcended any of that behaviour comes across as nothing more than a writer thinking they're correct and 'right on' but getting it spectacularly wrong and crapping over a characterisation built over three years by Mr Hartnell.
