Russell T Davies messed up the regeneration thing on Doctor Who didn't he?

In David Tennent's final story The End Of Time he implied death for one incarnation of the Doctor meant a completely new and different man was born with the same memories.
The Tenth Doctor's final words confirmed this when he said 'I don't want to go'.
It doesn't help earlier on in the episode as well when he says "Even if I change, it feels like dying. Everything I am dies. Some new man goes sauntering away...and I'm dead."
What on earth was RTD thinking when he did that!?! HE'S THE SAME PERSON FOR GOODNESS SAKE! He just changes his form to survive.

Overall I think RTD made far too much fuss of the 10th Doctors regeneration and did his best to squeeze three hours worth of television out of it.

And don't get me started on what is wrong with Planet of The Dead.

Rant over ;)

What do you think?


  1. David tennant is legendary, the 'fuss' they made over his regeneration was right to do so.

  2. Russel T Davies started to muck up doctor who after season 2 of the 10th Doctor! It started to have the typical, predictable fluidity!

    Steven Moffat should came in at series 3 and actually save David Tennent's Doctor ( then everyone could actually give Tennent his credibility and due for acting as the Doctor) from becoming uninspiring shit, of basically turning the 10th Doctor into a whimpering, old sack of wrinkled dead skin, wishing Rose would come back to suck his cock!!! She did and then the 10th doctor never even got a handjob! Fuck sake!!!

    But thankfully, since season 5 with the new 11th Doctor - Matt Smith and Moffat in charge has revitalized the show, making it have fruitful, erratic, eccentric fluidity! Were every episode i have watched since series 5 have been uplifting, inspiring but most importantly of all thrillingly entertaining!!! Where i have watched them time and time again! I now don't consider to watch much or even any of the episodes from Season 1 to 4 because lets face it, they where not the best!

    Russell T Davies, i say kindly to you; stay the fuck away from Doctor Who and let someone else take over Torchwood, you're cocking up that show too! NO IS DYING SHIT! IDIOT!

  3. It depends, If you think about it, the only real problem with the 10th doctor's regeneration is the line "I don't want to go". If that line was replaced with something like "I don't want to change", it would have probably been okay.

    But it's too late now of course, unless someone wants to attempt the mother of all retcons! :D
