** As his regeneration begins, there is a montage of all revival-era companions (barring Adam, Mickey, and Rory) saying his name ([[Recap/DoctorWhoS27E12BadWolf Rose Tyler]], [[Recap/DoctorWhoS29E4DaleksInManhattan Martha Jones]], [[Recap/DoctorWhoS30E1PartnersInCrime Donna Noble]], [[Recap/DoctorWhoS29E11Utopia Jack Harkness]], [[Recap/DoctorWhoS33E13TheNameOfTheDoctor Vastra]], [[Recap/DoctorWhoS33E11TheCrimsonHorror Jenny Flint]], [[Recap/DoctorWhoS30E12TheStolenEarth Sarah Jane Smith]] [[Recap/DoctorWhoS32E1TheImpossibleAstronaut Amy Pond]], [[Recap/DoctorWho2014CSLastChristmas Clara Oswald]], and [[Recap/DoctorWhoS31E12ThePandoricaOpens River Song]]). And what happens next? He wakes up in a shock and randomly spouts certain famous first and [[FamousLastWords last words]] of his previous incarnations. One of them? "''I don't want to go''".

** As his regeneration begins, there is a montage of all revival-era companions (barring Adam, Mickey, and Rory) saying his name name, just like in "Logopolis" ([[Recap/DoctorWhoS27E12BadWolf Rose Tyler]], [[Recap/DoctorWhoS29E4DaleksInManhattan Martha Jones]], [[Recap/DoctorWhoS30E1PartnersInCrime Donna Noble]], [[Recap/DoctorWhoS29E11Utopia Jack Harkness]], [[Recap/DoctorWhoS33E13TheNameOfTheDoctor Vastra]], [[Recap/DoctorWhoS33E11TheCrimsonHorror Jenny Flint]], [[Recap/DoctorWhoS30E12TheStolenEarth Sarah Jane Smith]] [[Recap/DoctorWhoS32E1TheImpossibleAstronaut Amy Pond]], [[Recap/DoctorWho2014CSLastChristmas Clara Oswald]], and [[Recap/DoctorWhoS31E12ThePandoricaOpens River Song]]).

** [[HeroicSuicide After the Doctor blows up all of Floor 507 to defeat the Cybermen,]] [[DyingAlone he is visibly dying, lying amidst a ton of debris and fire.]] That alone is saddening, because despite being a man who abhors violence, tries to maintain peace in many galaxies, saves innocent strangers for the sake of being kind and is rewarded with everlasting victory, he is still someone who leaves death and destruction in their wake, and can still be defeated by someone. This [[BittersweetEnding bittersweet point]] is urther hammered home by his last sight being a big ball of flame, pictured in this folder, and even if he still didn't die, the emotion can still remain within you.

** Also, really tragic is the way the Doctor rejects his previous selves. Notably in Time Heist the Twelfth Doctor calls the Eleventh Doctor's Bowtie "Embarrassing" and in his premier episode he calls the Fourth Doctor's Scarf "Stupid" (Though he was in an extreme case of regeneration sickness at the time, so that can probably be excused) Even further is that these changes, he knows that what he currently loves whether food or fashion... he knows once regeneration hits, he'll most likely despise all that. He knows it's inevitable and it scares the hell out of him.

* The illness and death of Creator/RobertHolmes, regarded as the show's best writer and script-editor, during production of Season 23. In the documentary ''Trials and Tribulations'' (on the DVD release of "The Ultimate Foe"), writer Phillip Martin shares a heartbreaking anecdote how Eric Saward, whom Holmes had befriended, went to visit him in hospital and after speaking to him for five minutes, Holmes replied, "I'm sorry, who are you?" It was clear then that the man was not going to get better. Not long afterwards, Saward resigned as script-editor because he refused to change Holmes' ending to the season.

** Martha leaving the TARDIS. Before she does that, she comes back to deliver an anecdote that is essentially her version of telling the doctor this: "Whatever has happened between you and that someone else you keep thinking about, is the reason why I cannot stay. It can never work out between the two of us."
-->'''Martha:''' Because the thing is, it's like my friend Vicky. She lived with this bloke, student housing, there were five of them all packed in, and this bloke was called Sean. And she loved him. She did. She completely adored him. Spent all day long talking about him.\\
'''The Doctor:''' Is this going anywhere?\\
'''Martha:''' Yes. Because he never looked at her twice. I mean, he liked her, but that was it. And she wasted years pining after him. Years of her life. Because while he was around, she never looked at anyone else. And I told her, I always said to her, time and time again, I said, get out. So this is me, getting out.

What a night that was! The towers sang, and you cried. You wouldn't tell me why, but I suppose you knew it was time. My time. Time to come to the library.

*** Right after this exchange River just gets this ''stricken'' look on her face, like her heart's just been ripped out of her chest.
*** She might have actually been hoping for death, considering, as she said in series 6, finally meeting the Doctor with no memory of her was something so terribly heartbreaking to her because it was the sign that, for the rest of her life, she'd never see him ever again, something she told Rory she ''lived'' for. Now, though, she's in the computer world, sure with nice people that she knows to pass the time with, but with the fact that she'll never see the Doctor again, not just until the end of her life, but forever. It's made even worse because at this point, she is just some woman to him, rather than the brilliant badass that we end up seeing.
