Interesting episode there.

I'm still not sure what to think about it. It seemed like it was trying so hard to be a casual episode, which contrasted with the critical content. It's hard to downplay pretty much every big-plot antagonist that has been in the show in the past eight years. It was even overwhelming to see them all.

Also, I'd really like to know more about that regeneration, but they did a good job of explaining pretty much nothing and gave something to scratch your head over for the next eight months or so.

Am I frustrated? Slightly. The next doctor has a lot of potential, though.

Yeah the limit, they did a good job to go over it. I am not sure if he was allowed just one more regen or the normal 12 again. It seems to have side effects maybe due to the doctor being unable to remember how to fly. It might just be post regen gitters though.

Didn't know he could die of old age either. Not sure on actually age now, it is 1000 and something.

Yeah will have to wait and see how the new doctor is. No word when it starts back though.

The enemy i would hate to be against  most are the weeping angels, Probably the scariest things.Daleks probably second since they can evolve/adapt. Plus they are Awesome for many reasons. They always manage to cling on to existence aswell.

What about flying?

*Spoiler!* Wiki tells me that the regen was granted by the Time Lords and mentions being given a 'cycle of regenerations', which can only mean one thing - However, it doesn't have any references and who knows if you can trust Wiki.

As for old age, he did mention while the Daleks were threatening him " ... and I finally die of old age" (as opposed to being killed by the Daleks). He could be killed before dying of old age by either getting killed during his 13th iteration or while he would be regenerating, as exemplified with the Space suit in season 5 or 6. Do you mean age overall, or just of the 11th? That might be accurate for just 11th, but exclusively, he was probably 1900 or so by the end of the episode. Just a guess.

Heh, Iduno if you noticed, but there was a short clip during the episode that showed a Weeping Angel looking at himself in a mirror with a sort of 'You're Welcome' message written by the Doctor. Personally, I find Cybermen the most intimidating, like the Daleks showing a great factor of advancement.

Definitely the climax of the episode :/

Yes that gave me a sense of joy. Although if you were to fight these in the environments they are normally in, most people will likely die. I don't know their real intention though. Are they enemy of anything that isn't one of them, or where did they come from?

Yeah overall age, it isn't something we normally get a sense of. I know he was at least 900 something when David Tennant played him since he says. Think in the Nov ep Matt Smiths Doctor says he was like 1200. Might be a lie since he distrusted the War Doctor. It might be true though. Think the war doctor was between 700-800 in age. Cant remember exact figures.

With all time traveling i wouldn't imagine he ages that much, since he would be outside of time while traveling. Though of course as seen he ages, It is hard to get since it might only appear as a few minutes for us but a few centuries for him.

Cybermen can be trouble but i have grown to enjoy them more and they stay pretty much the same though.

Yeah Daleks are always up there.

At lake Silencio he said he was 1100, somewhere else he mentioned being 1200.

Now, when the TARDIS gets back with (*spoilers*) Clara, 300 years have passed since the siege of trenzalore began, putting his age at 1500. Following this the full out battle starts and procedes for an unknown amount of time. However, judging by the large amount of aging that went on between when Clara left and when she got picked up by puppet tasha, I would add on about 200-300 years.

Placing the doctor's current age ~1750.

*Spoiler!* Wiki tells me that the regen was granted by the Time Lords and mentions being given a 'cycle of regenerations', which can only mean one thing - However, it doesn't have any references and who knows if you can trust Wiki.

The wiki is usually pretty good. But, judging by the violence of his regeneration (he took at a large dalek saucer), it definitely appears to be more than one regeneration.

I think we can all agree Handles is one of the best companions of the doctor.

information available . . . you need to . . . reroute the . . . phone to the . . . tardis . . . console

Btw, when the wooden cyberman attacks, the Doctor sonics it and it kills itself. But the sonic doesn't do wood, so did the Doctor convince the cyberman he had done something he couldn't do, despite being in a truth field.

Based on what I know from the Angels in Manhattan episode, they feed on Time Energy which they gain by sending people back in time. They are not necessarily enemies of anyone but that they want to / need to feed on the Time Energy. They can starve if they go for long enough without this energy. The Wiki has a lot of information on when they came about, and some of their other interesting abilities.

Did he specifically lie? The Cyberman may as well have just assumed he was affected - whether or not he carries through with the action is completely irrelevant. Even if the Doctor must tell the truth, he can choose not to open his mouth.
