Even the Sixth, where it was a knock to the head and Sylvester McCoy dressed in Six's clothes? ;)

To me that one's not so bad, though admittedly it may have been if I'd seen it in context rather than YouTube clips. 10 -> 11 stands out as the worst to me because A) RTD's pants-on-head retarded Timelord Standard Regeneration Pose which he introduced, which has inexplicably continued, so I've no idea what Moffats playing at. B) He took "death" like a bitch and whined up until the very end. Even 4 accepted it when his run was up. In fact, watching it now its almost as if they just used Tennants last trip round the set and just used that.

The RTD Time Lord Regeneration PoseTM was introduced with 9 -10, not 10-11. Ironically, it almost made sense there, as the streamers could be seen as dumping the huge amount of excess energy he had to get rid of and the fact that Rose, despite humans being considerably less robust than Time Lords, was able to continue to operate for some time after absorbing the Tardis suggests that there are limited prompt physical effects. It was continuing to use it completely different situations, when historically the nature of the regeneration has (unsurprisingly) changed with each fatal injury.

It was because of Colin Baker being fired, after a string of 'screw you's' from the higher-ups. :madashell:

I know, that was why I didn't like it in 10 - 11.

Fair enough, although I was sick of it by the time we got to 10-10.5, having already had it with the Master.

Just had a thought, the Time Lord from Planet of the Spiders, Cho Je was a decent bloke and survived the episode. He also seemed to be able to hide being a Time Lord from the Doctor...

He's out there, still. I know it. :D

No I haven't, in fact the only parts of his work I have consumed are YouTube clips, something which I think I need to rectify.
