    Second to Third Doctor - change or re-generation? Views: 1812
     Wednesday, November 01 2006 @ 08:19 AM EST
    I was also concerned that the Doctor must be running out of time, especially if actors decide to only stick with the role for a year before bowing out. Now I have a theory that the Doctor's life cycle was reset during the "Time Wars".

    As proof, I offer the DVD sets. Christopher E's series is called Series 1. Tennant's first series is Series 2. (I couldn't figure out how they could call the 2005 series Series 1, having watched the show for years prior, but now it all makes sense.) Thank you BBC!

    When the fifth Doctor (Peter Davison) explains that he was not sure if was going to regenerate this time, stating that it feels different this time. I just took it to mean that he wasn't sure if he was just going to die or regenerate. The poison could have been too lethal it was going to kill him.

    Cheers,

    I took that 'it feels different this time' was a sort of warning to us the viewer to expect a different 'type' of doctor - ie. a clue to Colin Baker's strangeness.

    [Quote  by:  JeffL] Before T. Baker became P. Davison, there was the ghostly "Watcher" wandering around in the background for part of Logopolis; a kind of disembodied spirit version that seemed to dissolve into T. Baker's body and become P. Davison. And I think it was Nyssa who said, "He was the Doctor all along." It make you wonder if the Doctor really lives on some other dimension plane and that if he kows something bad is coming, he can pop into a new body when the going gets tough to better manuever around the Universe.


    Apart from his appearance, he wasn't ghostly or disembodied. He's the one who brought Nyssa from Traken to Logopolis. So he must have access to some version of the TARDIS. I'm assuming he didn't just teleport her there. And even though he doesn't speak in the show, he must have talked with Nyssa on Traken to tell her that he was "a friend of the Doctor" and convince her to go with him.

    Hurm. Eek!

    I'm going "Full Circle" and putting my avatar back to what it was when I first joined. :)

    Yes, since Colin's Doctor was going to have very rough edges after he regenerated that would eventually smooth out... but having a 'rough regeneration' offered an excuse to why the 6th Doctor is the way he is following his regeneration.
