Has the moment already been prepared for? Fifth Doctor Peter Davison believes that a plan is already in place to give extra regenerations to our favorite Time Lord:
“I know people are worried about it, but I think there will be a way around that rule.”
And he adds that showrunner and international man-of-mystery Steven Moffat may be ready to put a solution into action:
“I know that Steven has put in the groundwork already in an episode so that there can be more.”
What does Mr. Davison know that we don’t, hmm? Could Moffat have planned for this when Professor River Song saved the Eleventh by giving him all of her regeneration energy in Series 6’s Let’s Kill Hitler?
Or was it something as simple as the infamous “507 regenerations” quote in the Death of the Doctor episode of The Sarah Jane Adventures? Perhaps it will be something to do with the as-yet-unrevealed true identity of John Hurt’s Doctor in the upcoming anniversary special?
Whatever the case, we will find out soon enough in the coming months.
Surely all of this talk must have The Valeyard feeling a bit nervous?
, if you were going to extend the Doctor’s life in some amazing way, how would you do it?
