Dr Who question

In what episode does Tennant turn into Matt Smith?
I thought it was gonna happen in the last episode of series 4, but it didn't...

Some are born great, some achieve greatness and some have greatness thrust upon them.

The rest of us are a bit crap.

It begs the question, what the BBC would do (or The Moff would do) if the actor playing the Doctor died during production (car crash, or summat).

Would it finish off the show completely?

Not wishing car crashes on Matt Smith, Karen Gillan or Arthur Darvill, by the way. :D

True. But that was years apart.

I was wondering what would happen if there was a sudden death halfway through filming.

Yes, but the Tardis regenerates as well.

They would have to think through things very quickly. Anywhere from actor substitution to a whole damned remount.

Roger Delgado, who played the original Master, died in a car crash while on his way to film a film in Turkey. This scuppered plans for Pertwee's last story, The Final Game, where it would be revealed that the Doctor and the Master are two aspects of the same Time Lord, and where the Master would die in a manner suggesting that he might have been saving the Doctor's life.

And when Frazer Hines came down with chickenpox in The Mind Robber, a bit of quick thinking (thanks to the weird nature of the story) allowed them to temporarily substitute Hines with Hamish Wilson.

That was probably one of his most violent regenerations, though to be fair, he was holding it in for so long. Certainly when the fifth Doctor regenerated into the sixth, the fifth had been holding his regeneration in for so long (strongly hinted by the cliffhanger for the third episode of The Caves of Androzani) that the sixth Doctor was an unstable lunatic who tried to throttle Peri...

Bouncy if there was EVER a show where they COULD sub a completely different actor for a missing main lead..... Dr Who is it no?

And no to hoping this never happens.

I'm really impressed with Matt Smith's acting. He does 'serious' really well and, although he's only very young, he manages to convince that he's also a very great age. If that makes sense. :?

It does, but I have to say that I'm not impressed with Matt Smith's portrayal of the Doctor. He's a good Doctor, and all, but he hasn't actually impressed me.
