  • Question of

    Who Declined The Bbc’s Invitation To Star In The Regeneration Sequence?

    • colin baker 0.jpg
    • scarlett johansson 0.jpg

    Hint .

    The second doctor was never seen to actually change into the third doctor. colin baker declined the invitation to play both incarnations of the doctor. the regeneration of the sixth doctor into the seventh is the only time a single actor took on the roles of two incarnations.

    Hint .

    shortly after the regeneration process, the doctor sometimes goes through a period of physical and psychological instability. the second doctor experiences crippling pain after his first regeneration. the third doctor collapses outside the tardis after spearhead from space. the fourth doctor says a new body “takes time to settle in”

    Hint .

    second doctor’s last claim of a connection between the tardis and regeneration has never been explored in detail. it is heavily suggested by later regeneration stories. the connection between man and vehicle is made explicitly clear in the parting of the ways.  the third and fourth doctor’s highest priority is to return to the tardis.

    Hint .

    various spinoff media allege the second doctor did not regenerate at this time. this has never been confirmed in the tv series. bbc portal time lord physical characteristics are similar to those of the time lord in the novel world game. some episodes of the 2011 series used a vfx that suggested regeneration.

    Hint .

    the first doctor chose to regenerate after seeing the man he would become. the second doctor had regeneration forced upon him as part of his punishment for breaking the laws of time. he hesitated to regenerate because he was afraid of the change. the doctor’s appearance was chosen for him.

    Hint .

    like the tenth doctor, the twelfth doctor’s regeneration was highly explosive. the time lord must choose to either regenerate or die. in the first doctor’s case, the regeneration was not explosive at all. he called it a ‘state of grace’  .

    Hint .

    time lords can retain a quirk or choice throughout their lives. the doctor’s promise and the corsair’s tattoo are examples of this. some time lords are susceptible to post-regenerative side-effects. the second doctor had some confusion over his own identity.

    Hint .

    thirteenth doctor learned she was originally the timeless child. a being from another universe or dimension with the ability to regenerate an indefinite number of times. the doctor’s memories of their lives before the first doctor were redacted. the eleventh doctor had to receive a second regeneration cycle.

    Correct Wrong

    The second doctor was never seen to actually change into the third, simply fading off into darkness at the end of the war games and then stumbling out of the tardis, already regenerated, at the start of spearhead from space (1970). the regeneration of the sixth doctor into the seventh is the only time that a single actor took on the roles of two incarnations of the doctor. colin baker declined the invitation to film the regeneration sequence at the start of time and the rani (1987) due to the circumstances in which the bbc dismissed him from the role.

    Who Plays The Second Doctor?

    • patrick troughton 0.jpg
    • scarlett johansson 0.jpg

    Hint .

    Patrick troughton steals every scene as the second doctor. jacquliene pearce plays an absolute clone of her character servelan from blakes 7. the guest stars are campy and cheesy. the show is back for the 20th anniversary special.

    For the reviewer who said that the webisode would be incomprehensible to modern fans, i'm not even a fan and i found it comprehensible. all you really need to know to appreciate it is that paul mcgann was the eighth doctor but only appeared in a tv movie back in 1996.because it's been seventeen years, he's made enough of a physical change for him to look as if he's been hardened or wisened by events. mcgann gets a much better change to acquit himself and remind everybody that he's a very good actor.
