One Comment on “Radio Free Skaro #586 – Jackdaw Meanderings

  1. My two cents on the regeneration? The introduction of 12 with the short regeneration was a good example of keeping in line with modern canon but telling us that this is now about the new Doctor (12) not the last one. I think it keeps in line with the tone of the 12th Doctor, he is very pared back. Much better I think to keep it more Pertwee and “a tear, Sarah Jane” I watched that moment as a child in the 70s, it made me sad that Sarah Jane was upset not that the Doctor was changing. I knew the Doctor wasn’t going to die, that he would just look different. That is still my favourite regeneration scene. I hope a regeneration scene as quite and poignant can find a place in modern Who.
