Well, I never realised she played Violet Elizabeth.

Who was that short companion? Once duffed up a Dalek for calling her a 'small human'? She was a pain in the bum, too.

It may have been - or it could have been Peri

No, definitely Ace. She received the most development of any companion.

And here's the moment in question. :D

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.


Russel T. Davies said later on that this was just a throwaway line, a joke and that we shouldn't take it seriously. The Doctor said he could regenerate 507 times and some people speculate that it's just 5+0+7, which is 12. (maybe the Doctor was tired of explaining or just didn't want to say?) I just wonder why Davies put it in in the first place. It just confuses everyone. :roll:
If River changed that, I don't know... Anyway, I'll be interested to see the explanation we will get when it's time for the 13th Doctor to regenerate. Or maybe earlier.

I'm getting used to Matt Smith as The Doctor, but you must admit that when his head started to turn round, the profile shot of him is not a good look.

That chin!

Bless.

Anyhoo, Doctor Who and the Daleks (Cushing) was on yesterday, and right at the beginning, he says that the Tardis is his invention.

I thought they were widely available on Gallifrey?

That's because he's a human in the movies, and invented his own TARDIS. Don't ask. :roll:

Ahhh, a bit of "re-tooling" went on, then? :lol:

Yep, it was a movie about a human inventor called Doctor Who. :lol: It was based on the second serial of the series.

The Daleks in that film were originally going to have flamethrowers as their weapons, but they abandoned that idea on health and safety grounds and also because they thought it might be too frightening for kids. So they used fire extinguishers (fitted inside the Dalek props) instead.:D

There were several clues to the Doctor's alien origin in the first episode. Including a scrap yard that had a few visits at various times and various series. The name on the gate was "I. M. Foreman" - which could be taken as 'I'm for man' and, indeed, Susan used the name Foreman when she goes to the local school. :)

Oh yes, that's her. She certainly got less annoying as she went on. Slightly less annoying.

Has Doctor Who Become Creepy With Its Female Companions?
