Anonymous said: How come there are two 10s in your line up of the Doctors?
I had a feeling someone would ask this! Basically there are 14 incarnations of the Doctor, played by 13 people, only 12 of whom called themselves the Doctor. Tennant regenerates, but due to the special circumstances of having that vestigial hand, he is able to “cure” himself but shunts the “change’o magic” into the hand. He still regenerates and uses up that incarnation to save himself and to make The Meta-Crisis Doctor (Ten 2/Ten Too).
The way I look at it, The Tenth Doctor that exists between “The Christmas Invasion” and “The Stolen Earth” was one version. The Tenth Doctor between “Journey’s End” and “The End of Time” is another. It explains the subtle shift in his personality during the specials - Time Lord Triumphant - as well as his moodiness about regenerating in “The End of Time.” He’s barely had anytime in his second lease on being the Tenth Doctor, so he’s angry and bitter about “wasting” it.
Indeed, one of the great things about Moffat’s introduction of the War Doctor also explains away the melodrama and whininess of Ten in “The End of Time.” He’s on his final regeneration. Of course he doesn’t want to go, of course he’d give a big ass speech if this was his last go around. Of course he thinks twice about saving Wilf. Of course a Doctor who’s on his final regeneration would take the time to go and see all his previous companions because he’ll never have the time again, because Eleven will be his final incarnation.
So, I count Tennant twice, just to acknowledge how many regenerations/incarnations he’d had.

Opening two pages of the SILVER SURFER original graphic novel by Jack Kirby and Joe Sinnott
“Despite the superficial differences in appearance… at hearts his character is remarkably consistent. He is… impulsive, idealistic, ready to risk his life for a worthy cause. He still hates tyranny and oppression, and anything that is anti-life. He never gives in, and never gives up, however overwhelming the odds against him. The Doctor believes in good and fights evil. Though often caught up in violent situations, he is a man of peace. He is never cruel or cowardly. In fact, to put it simply, the Doctor is a hero. These days there aren’t so many of them around.”
