*** It also made me think of the fairies in ''Series/{{Torchwood}}''. Considering that they can apparently choose to become invisible to security cameras, it at least sets a president that there are ways to trick sensors. In this case projecting the image of what the user wants.

* First the Dalek ignores a young Adelaide, despite there MO being the destruction of all of reality itself at that time. That alone is bad, as they were shown actively killing people who disobeyed them in ''The Stolen Earth'', so why would it spare that one child?

** My ex girlfriend made me watch ''Film/TheCraft'' about 20 times when I was a teenager. I watch ''TheMentalist'' regularly and never noticed that they share a main lead until it was pointed out to me. Pretty much that.

*** 10's entire speech about regeneration meaning that one Doctor dies and a new one walks away gets a lot of flak from the fans for [[CharacterDerailment going against all of the established continuity about the different faces being the same person.]] My attempt at a Sonic MindScrewdriver, considering the fact that he wanted to permanently drown in [[Recap/DoctorWho2006CSTheRunawayBride "Runaway Bride"]] but not regenerate in [[Recap/DoctorWhoS30E12TheStolenEarth "The Stolen Earth"]] or [[Recap/DoctorWhoS30E17E18TheEndOfTime "The End of Time"]], is as follows: he feels that he's getting too genocidally violent ([[Recap/DoctorWhoS12E4GenesisOfTheDaleks Four didn't wipe out the Daleks]], Eight wiped out the Time Lords), he doesn't want to feel that his "better" lives ([[Recap/DoctorWho2007CiNSTimeCrash like Five]]) are guilty of what he's done more recently, [[ThatManIsDead tries to lie to himself that they're different, better people from the Oncoming Storm]], and is worried that 11-13 will be even worse. Plus, regeneration probably heals psychological damage alongside the physical, as somebody further down the list points out. ** In a way, though, he is a different person walking away, to an extent. He has a completely different personality and mindset- and, of course, appearance. He is still the same, though, in that he has his previous self's memories. He can understand what his previous self was thinking and feeling, but now he is looking at such events through slightly different lenses. Typically, though, the Doctors all hold pretty much the same values and morality, and certain likes/dislikes seem to be universal. In this sense, you can think of the Doctors as different people, but these over-arcing similarities make them all the same person.

**** Tongue, meet cheek. I wasn't being entirely serious there. Although considering that the OP is asking why Eleven isn't feeling 'remorse' (suggesting guilt rather than simply sorrow)...

**** Tongue, meet cheek. I wasn't being entirely serious there. Although considering that the OP is asking why Eleven isn't feeling 'remorse' (suggesting guilt rather than simply sorrow)...sorrow) suggests that the OP, at least, views the situation as closer to murder than anything else.

** Plus the fact that he was standing in the dark. Besides, do ''you'' remember every drunk you spoke to on New Years Day?

** Interesting point. However, in Apollo and the Space Shuttle, electricity is produced in fuel cells by combining hydrogen and oxygen. A by-product of this is water, which the astronauts then consume. So it's likely the ship produces its own water.

* Given what is written in the HeartwarmingMoments and TearJerker pages, does anyone really believe the Master did a HeelFaceTurn or RedemptionEqualsDeath? The Master is a CompleteMonster and always has been. The Doctor only thought otherwise because of his loneliness.

**Yeah, the Doctor doesn't really reference the Time Lords themselves, it's more him missing the planet, and a sense of loneliness, and one or two good souls he knew there... but as for the rest of those stuffy bureaucrats? Yeah, wiping them out was a public service. If you were to run into a Time Lord, don't run up and hug it and ask it for sage wisdom; statistically, that Time Lord is a psychopath (Monk, Master, Rani, Omega, etc.). And the rest don't really leave Gallifrey at all. The exceptions are Susan and Romana, and whatever happened to them is ambiguous.
