In an attempt to steer this thread back on topic ;) , did anyone here actually watch the original transmission of Tom's regeneration scene?

I remember seeing it back then, but it could just as easily have been the repeat.

I agree, Tracy, and to be honest I hated the whole story.

I'll not go into specifics here, I'll save that for another thread.

I might be in a minority as it's my favourite Who story of them all.....and I think he went out in a great way by saving the universe :P I did watch it in 1981 as he was my hero.....and always will be :D It was a very sad moment but I did watch it after Tom left and it had some great moments, Peter Davison and Colin Baker are very under-rated on Who, even Slyvester McCoy puts in a couple of great performances (Curse of Fenric is fantastic).

The Doctor might've regenerated lots of times since Tom but with The Hornet's Nest being a hit with me and how they've brought other Doctors back into stories (including older versions of themselves eg The Two Doctors) they're not killed off when they regenerate.....with "Who" anything is possible.....that's why when it's at it's best it's still THE show to beat.

Hope to meet a nautical cove or two online to chat about Tom, "Who", etc :-)

I hated the way they killed him off....I mean, falling off a tower? He could have tripped on his scarf and fallen off something any day! There should have been another way.........

If only they hadn't cancelled "All Creatures Great and Small"... we would still have Tom as our doctor. :x
