This is a site for discussing roleplaying games. Have fun doing so, but there is one major rule: do not discuss political issues that aren't directly and uniquely related to the subject of the thread and about gaming. While this site is dedicated to free speech, the following will not be tolerated: devolving a thread into unrelated political discussion, sockpuppeting (using multiple and/or bogus accounts), disrupting topics without contributing to them, and posting images that could get someone fired in the workplace (an external link is OK, but clearly mark it as Not Safe For Work, or NSFW). If you receive a warning, please take it seriously and either move on to another topic or steer the discussion back to its original RPG-related theme.

I really want to get all the Tom baker and Peter Davidson stuff, but the dvd's are ridiculously overpriced. One single story for £20 in the shops!
“Ghost Whistler” is rated PG-13 (Parents strongly cautioned). Parental death, alien battles and annihilated worlds.

In the states you can watch a lot of it streaming on netflix. Most of the new stuff is available that way too. My wife and i have been rewatching the 9th doctor over the last couple of days.
And I don't believe for a minute that they will stop at 13 if the show is doing well; they'll just come up with some nonsense to keep it going, which is just fine with me. And if the show is tanking, and they do stop at 13, they'll reboot it later and explain it away.

Interestingly i just watched Mawdryn Undead again on youtube where the dr confirms that he only has 12 regenerations in total.

One more to go. :D

Without the Time Lords, you can argue that their own imposed-limit is gone, so The Doctor now has unlimited regenerations.

I don't know if this was mentioned here already or not, but Moffat has gone on record at the very least, as not giving a flying fuck about the "regeneration limit".  Which, if he's still in charge when that moment comes, would no doubt cue massive nerd-rage on the Doctor Who forums.

I'm not interested in the new stuff. I want the classics and i'll download them if i have to. really it's ridiculous they haven't used technology to archive classic tv shows for people to watch.

They could wipe the slate clean and start all over at the 1st Doctor.  Ever see the last episode of Land of the Lost?  With time travel, the End is simply witness to the Beginning.

Anyway, as Pundy suggests, going beyond the 13th Doctor is going to create a huge upheaval in the fan community anyway, so the potential producers are essentially free to do whatever they want.
