5. It was Matt Smith’s last epsiode, you see.

Regenerations are always traumatic.

6. If we’re honest, not all of the emotions were entirely positive.

this is the most stupid episode of Doctor Who I've ever watched, and I've sat through a LOT of Moffat episodes so that's saying something

My favourite part of Doctor Who was the bit at the end where my kid sat on the floor with the face of someone who'd had his xmas shat on.

Looks like Doctor Who went down as well as a skid mark on a hotel towel.

And lo, five million nerd voices cried out "Worst. Regeneration. Ever". And were swiftly silenced by their nan asking what that was about.

15. Some people managed to contain all of these emotions within them at once.

HOW CAN ONE EPISODE BE SO CONFUSING YET SO PERFECT AND SO EMOTIONAL. HOW, DOCTOR WHO?!

16. Other things happened before the emotions came, though. There was the bit where Matt Smith was naked.

17. Also the bit where Matt Smith was bald.

22. We got a philosophical take on how our personal histories shape us.

 

25. Then this happened.

OH GOD.

26. It definitely happened.

27. And all of the emotions came flooding out.

28. (Congrats to the BBC Wig Department, though.)

29. The bow tie went.

The bow tie was cool.

31. And then…

BBC

QUICKEST REGENERATION EVER.

33. And forget about new teeth. This Doctor has more pressing biological matters on his mind.

35. Also, a slight amnesia problem.
