I am again, like I was with the Tenth Doctor’s Regeneration, upset by the Doctor’s unwillingness to undergo the historical, essential and adventurous transformation. We have been assured – since childhood I might add – that it is not like dying, that regeneration leaves us with the beloved Doctor we all love, with a different outer shell and new set of idiosyncrasies. Then we get this from Peter Capaldi, whilst still suppressing our discomfiture over the similar, emotional reticence of David Tenant. We need to feel that the Doctor isn’t dying. We need reassuring at the end of a Doctor’s cycle, that it is the beginning of a new chapter, not the end of a book. Feeling upset, uncomfortable and disappointed.
