I can relate to your feeling of doom when TOM regenerated. Although, by the time PBS showed the regeneration, I had seen the regeneration scene(albeit dodgy) in Sylvester McCoy's 'Time And The Rani'. So I guess I had a less traumatic experience than you.
Here we can selebrate TOM's return to the role in 'Hornet's Nest' and 'Demon Quest'. I hope you are able to pick up copies of both 5-part segments. Enjoy your time here, and it is truly a pleasure to meet you.
