The end of Twelve – talkin’ ’bout regeneration…

Warning! This article and its comments may contain spoilers...

It only feels like yesterday that Peter Capaldi was being announced as the Twelfth Doctor, but time really does fly when you’re having fun as it’s already four years later and the end of his epic era is nigh.

Exactly when he’ll be handing over his TARDIS duties, though, we’re not entirely sure. It was assumed that the regeneration scene would feature in this year’s Christmas Special, which has been confirmed as both Peter and outgoing showrunner Steven Moffat’s final episode, however a spanner has recently been thrown into the works…

That spanner being this Series 10 trailer, which shocked us all with a blink and you’ll miss it clip of the Doctor’s death-defying process seemingly beginning. That combined with the fact that Peter recently revealed that he’s already filmed his character’s final moments, despite the fact the festive episode doesn’t film until July. It’s confusing to say the least!

But then again, when isn’t it? Nobody really knows what’s going on, but here is the place where you can post your theories. We’re sure we’ll slowly learn more as Series 10 continues, so be sure to check back in to dissect the latest developments. We’ll put a link in the sidebar for easy access, so you’ll never be too far away if you need to simultaneously speculate and self-combust in equal measure.

    They’ve spoiled what could’ve been a great suprise by showing it in the trailer. As soon we see the soldiers or that room, it’ll be obvious what’s coming.

    My bet is on a regeneration in Extremis, with a temporary bit of stunt casting to wind people up before Capaldi reappears for the rest of the series.

    I am also confused by the trailer. Peter Capaldi has said he has filmed the regeneration and it clearly shows the doctor regenerating in the trailer after The Pilot episode. Then I read in Doctor Who magazine that they haven’t filmed the Christmas episode yet but I have read that a certain someone is going to be in the Christmas episode to help with the regeneration. I think Peter Capaldi is regenerating at the end of this series and it is being kept quiet so that it comes as a surprise when we see the new Doctor. Chris Chibnal will be writing the Christmas episode I think.
