    Each and everyone who can say " I was the Doctor, Doctor Who " will never forget their roll. So a special Good bye from each will always stay with anyone who loves Doctor Who.
    My Doctor was Tom Baker with that long colorful scarf and a bag of Jelly babies 💖

    I like to think matt was talking to us when he said "i will not forget one line of this... not one day... i swear i will always remember when the doctor was me"

    3:21 you can really see the pain on his face when Clara asked him not to change 😭

    Even if they wrote literal Shakespeare for it, the 13th Doctor will NEVER be able to come close to a regeneration as poignant as 10, 11 and 12

    Does anyone know the name of the music at 3:21 when he changes to Peter Capaldi? I can find the music leading up to it but not the music after, it sounds like a great small piece for curiosity.

    It must have hurt to see the person you cared for become someone else.

    For some reason the music at.3:01 to me is just as painful as being shot through the heart by a dalek.
    what's it called btw?

    The long song in the background is so sweet. That was the moment when the doctor accepted everything he was, and this is the moment he accepts everything he will become.

    I always knew. The song for the Old God, the Long Song: it was really for the Doctor.

    Could not stand Peter Capaldi,, watch the first 20 minutes of the first one of them could not watch any more,, hated that put a woman as the Doctor, but one the other hand glad that they got rid of Peter Capaldi

    Doctor: Do you happen to know how to fly this thing?
    Clara: The Tardis?
    Doctor: No the show. It’s going to be about you from now on.

    God this scene brings back so many memories. The bit where he drops the bow tie kills me every time. No one will ever embody the role or be the role as much as Matt Smith did as he is and always will be... the Doctor.

    Has anyone else noticed that the music is the one from Clara's first trip to outer space with the killer sun and the song is the one that the little girl sang to help the Doctor defeat it?
    Sorry, trying to distract myself from the heartbreak of this scene.

    whole new set of regenerations? or infinite regenerations. Can we get some clarity on this?

      In theory, he has 10 more regenerations left. But we don't know if bbc and the future producers will "obey" this idea

      @Blue Box Reven (In the latest issue of the wonderful Doctor Who Magazine (issue 486), current show runner Steven Moffat has been discussing the regeneration limit for The Doctor. In his regular feature in the publication, Moffat answers questions from fans; Finlay Worrallo asked:
      “In Kill The Moon, The Doctor implies that he doesn’t know how many regenerations he has left. Is it possible he has an infinite amount?”

      Steven Moffat answered:
      “Well, he certainly has a new cycle, so it’s not a problem that’s going to worry us for a long time. In fact, at the current rate of Doctors, I really don’t think I’ll be involved in that discussion again.")

    • Blue Box Reven

      @Erik according to this, yes your right. BUT the BBC hasn't made it clear if they are sticking to this or if they just don't care anymore

    Good gracious. I remember watching this live when it premiered. I nearly cried when his bow tie hit the floor. I'm really glad for the sneezing out of Capaldi though cuz that was enough shock to pull me right out of the sadness. 😂

    To dream of custard represents feelings that a situation has to feel good. Feeling stupid if you don't feel good for someone else or enjoy something.
    Negatively, custard may reflect feelings of being pressured into feeling good for others or having to enjoy something.
    To dream of fish represents unconscious thoughts or unconscious truths. Things you may notice about yourself or your life, but don't fully understand. Being aware of something you can't fully grasp. A subtle awareness.
    Positively, fish may reflect valuable insights. Learning new things about yourself or that were previously difficult to grasp
