Thought What I Had At Four A.M.

And then had to finish kicking myself for missing the obvious before I could get back to sleep...

The Doctor's most faithful companion?

Is the TARDIS.

*wince* It's... kinda scaring me how much sense it makes. It could be tied in with the regeneration weirdness, and it's the lead-in to the truncated seasons.

It's the "everlasting" part that's making me doubt, though. Hard to find a loophole in that, and there would have to be one, because we are talking about the indelible symbol of the show these 45 years. They could never even get away with having the chameleon circuit work for more than a story or two at a time. But they did get away with stranding Three for years...

OMG!

No, no, no, no!

*sob*

I can't even express to you how much I hope you are wrong.

If I believed they would actually do it and it would stick, I'd be a lot more upset. See comment to Suz above.

*sniff*

(takes cookie, of course. no amount of sobbing would prevent that)

thanks. you're right. everlasting is the sticker.

Of course, it might mean something like "Oh Jack's immortality is taken away so everlasting death is a possibility for him once more."

Which I wouldn't mind at all since the whole "can't die" thing has the potential to be a terrible storytelling crutch.

Man, I was not awake enough this morning to register how much this was going to freak people out.

Plus I totally predicted the first comment would be "Yeah, we've been hashing this out over on such-and-such a post since last night, where have you been?"

I think people are already in a high state of flail due to possible regeneration. (Which I'm 99% certain won't be happening due to some sort of Deus ex Rusty.) And Donna doom foreshadowing. And...it just SEEMS like we should be panicking. :D

It could happen. But there might be an upside.

The Tardis is destroyed, but in the process the destruction of Gallifrey and the "Time Lock" that the Dalek's seemed to have circumvented is undone. The Doctor loses the Tardis, but the Time Lords are restored.

Then he'd get a new one!

Dude. You think big. I'd gotten as far as "maybe has something to do with the regeneration almost certainly not turning out the way one would expect..."

Well despite the OMG factor of the end of the ep, I don't think he's going to regenerate as a new person because

A) Prof. River Song recognized him as a younger version of "her" Doctor. Perhaps he'll come out a little aged.
B) I don't care how good you are. There is no way you can keep a secret like that under wraps.

I *know!* But I don't think they're going to pull another "Stuck on Earth" season.

One would hope not! There was too much time spent there during first season with a working TARDIS...

Somebody else pointed that I out, and I facepalmed and whimpered.

Boy, I hope you're both wrong.

We shall see what we shall see. If you take the prediction at face value (which, Who being Who and all things being equal, I don't necessarily), there really aren't any non-whimper-worthy options.

There are indeed not. And we have certain bits of information that give us some answers in the form of what's filming and already planned to film and though it's clear they've been lying to the press--and go, them, spreading misinformation is going to be the ONLY way to deal with making not EVERTHING already known--so not even all of that is certain, just bits.

There aren't any of them I'm prepared to lose. NEVER the TARDIS. Never. And, like you said, I don't think they would (not and make it stick). Martha could be "most faithful" for the year that never was. Donna could be for the already sacrificing her life once. Rose for never giving up. Sarah for essentially becoming the Doctor in residence. Jack for the whole "immortal" thing and the waiting over 150 years for him in Cardiff...

But I'm not ready to lose them. And in spite of the Huge Sledgehammer Of Doom regarding Donna all season (I mean, seriously, saying, "I'm going to travel with him forever," is like signing one's own death warrant), all I can think is, "They can't do that to Wilf! ...or Sylvia either."

Waiting is evil. The speculation is titilating, though.

That thought had passed through my brain briefly. Eeek!

This is a good point.

I HATE cliffhangers!

I'm so glad I've gotten to watch most of this without the wait.

I still love that icon so much. :-D

I love it too.

Husband said this icon is almost identical to the pose she was in watching "Turn Left" and "Stolen Earth" today. *beam*
