Non Cosmetic Musings ahead…
I haven’t been keeping up with SJA so hadn’t realized that MS had a cross over on a recent eppy…where the hell was I?
But honestly SJA was a bit too naff for me, heck even my geeky side thought so.
Anyway….in a faithful episode, our 11th decided to throw fandom to the wind and announced he could regenerate 507 times. A single number blew 30 years of myth out of the water. 507? What the bloody hell…507 times?
And in other news the BBC throws Who history and tradition out the window in place of marketing and cashing in on a franchise.
I refuse to believe the Doctor can regenerate 507 times for crumbs sake.
Fact is the Doctor’s running out of regeneration periods although there has been clauses in some cases where he “regenerated”, loosely using the term there, and still managed to stay the same…Time Lord’s can only regenerate 12 times (thirteen incarnations in all) don’t listen to what Moffat tells you.
On that note I’ll spread the cheer that Matt Smith is confirmed to return as the Doctor for 14 more episodes in 2012. Yay!
Will Pond return? That remains to be seen…
