YMMV: Doctor Who S6 E7 "The War Games"

  • Harsher in Hindsight: At the time, the concept of Regeneration really wasn't as fleshed out as it is now. At the time, the Time Lords were just making the Doctor 'change his appearance' in preparation for his exile. Now, it's more or less the Time Lords killing the Doctor (in the sense of forcing him to use one of his 12 regenerations) before they exile him, in essence this was a summary execution.
