There was that thing with Romana as well, if I remember correctly. She was a Time Lord/Lady who regenerated. But before she decided on her final 'look', she tried several different bodies - rather like she was trying costumes on. She didn't seem bothered that she might be using up regenerations.

And of course this little nugget blows the whole notion of limited regenerations out the water.

Well... I know it's not canon, but I had to share. :lol:

My theory was that she hadn't fully regenerated, she was merely in an intermediate stage when she tried out those bodies, so she didn't use up her regenerations.

Of course, another theory was posited by a short story, where an avatar of the TARDIS actually did that whole sequence, and explored Skaro with the Doctor during the events of Destiny of the Daleks, because the TARDIS was jealous of Romana.
I've lived for over 2000 years, and not all of them were good ones. I've made many mistakes. And it's about time I did something about that.

Great fun, I remember it well as if it was only 14 years ago (oh it was 14 years ago) :D Interestingly it was the first Doctor Who written by Steven Moffat, I wonder what he is doing now :D It wasn't the last time Richard E Grant played The Doctor either as he voiced the animated story Scream of the Shalka in 2003
One of those? Oh I'm sure I have one somewhere..

Not exactly. It's in the licenced short stories collection Short Trips: Companions. Specifically, the story called The Lying Old Witch in the Wardrobe by Mark Michalowski. Synopsis here: http://www.drwhoguide.com/whotrip5.htm#7 He also wrote the officially licenced Doctor Who novels Relative Dimentias, Halflife, Wetworld and Shining Darkness.

This from Den of Geek:

Matt Smith's Doctor is asked by Clyde just how many times he can regenerate. The Doctor tells him that there's not a limit. Then they just get on with the episode.


Didn't he say '507'? It's a good number of times. :lol:

I didn't get to watch the first 5 or so minutes but the new episode wasn't bad. I'm wondering whether that leaf "the first page" has any significance to the series.
Well, you know what they say. The past is a foreign country - - With an outdated military and huge oil reserves!
