ME! YouTube is live streaming it today when it comes on, so I'll watch it that way!

I would watch it if I could.  But unfortunately I think the YouTube stream is only for the "preshow".

If someone finds a way to actually watch the thing legally online (for those of us who don't get BBC:America), then by all means, please post it here :)

For those of us not in "the know" I was finding it hard to believe that you were celebrating the assassination of JFK. I now see the subtle "Who" in there. I guess that would explain why the special is not being aired on normal American TV, with the coincidental anniversary date.

I feel like at some point along a thread spoilers should be unnecessary. If anyone is really upset that someone spoiled something, they should understand by this point in the thread that it's their own fault.

Agreed


HENCEFORTH I DECREE, SPOILERS APLENTY BEYOND THIS POINT
TURN BACK NOW IF YOU WISH NOT TO GAZE UPON THEM


Now we can discuss without spoiler tags.

Numbers here are counting regenerations:

William Hartnell --1-- Patrick Troughton --2-- Jon Pertwee --3 --Tom Baker -- 4 -- Peter Davison --5-- Colin Baker --6-- Sylvester McCoy --7-- Paul McGann --8-- John Hurt --9-- Christopher Eccleston --10-- David Tennant --11-- Matt Smith --12-- Peter Capaldi

According to Moffat, Tennant used up an extra regeneration, so we therefore are already out.


Interesting. I suppose we'll have to wait until Christmas for all of this to really be sorted out.

I thought he had 13 regens?

Also did anyone else love that this was hinted at when they brought back galafrey with the master?

Is the Valeyard coming back? I just read on Wikipedia a recent episode referred to him. He's supposed to be between the 12th and 13th reincarnation.

Disclaimer: The most recent episode I've watched is the wedding of river song.

Just watch the episode, Sauce, you honestly haven't missed anything else that's too important.

The whole forgetting it thing really didn't make sense. Their time lines were out of sync? Why should that effect anything?

Additionally, I'm not sure I like a Doctor that doesn't have a dark past. It thickened the character. Gave him purpose.

It also makes the decisions he makes in episodes like The Waters of Mars make more sense. :P
