    Besides... Clara went there with herself.

    And when Disney's copyrights on their early material get close to expiration under the 1998 law, you can expect the issue to be revisited and extended again.

    *lol*

    In the USA (and I imagine similar in other parts of the Western world) copyright generally lasts til around 50 years after the death of the author.

    In the late 90's in USA this was extended to 75 years, which meant that early Disney work, that was about to become free for anyone to copy and distribute (and profit from), had copyright protection extended. (Disney had been a fierce force behind this move.)

    Free Trade deals that were made between the USA and various countries (including Australia, where I live) in the 00's included terms insisting that copyright laws match these changes, so it has become law in other countries too.

    Or at least, that's my vague understanding of it all...

    Hartnell back where he belongs...



    Spoiler:
    I know it's no Rogue One / Cushing, but its the best I could do with my knowledge and tools...

    When asked why I do these things, I always answer - because that's what my head said.

    PS I really don't like adding that regeneration effect to classic era episodes... (!) But, well, it helped hide my dodgy face-replacement surgery, so there it is.

    Spoiler:
    If Clara is returning, it better just be a brief cameo like Amy at the end of 11... There's also suggestion that Bill isn't over either - at least, to appear at Xmas...

    So disappointed with the episode. There was not one single thing in the finale that hasn’t been done before at some point in Moffat’s run, so it was not much more than just a great big showcase of his favorite trops. Oh, remember how Clara died, was brought back from the dead, became immortal and went off exploring the universe with another immortal girl? Seems like it was only yesterday, doesn’t it? Not even going to comment on the fact that the Doctor have already had two fake regenerations earlier this same season.

    The only saving grace of the finale was the way The Master and Missy both went out. Although Missy did almost turn good at the end and that was kinda bull****. Still, good scene. Oh, Nardole leaving was pretty sad, especially knowing that he’s going to get murdered by The Cybermen eventually. Shame, really. I have actually grown to like him quite a bit.

    I didn't mind it so much this time. Twelve repeated a lot of lines from Other Doctors. I don't really see him as not wanting to regenerate per se, not like Ten... I think he's frustrated because he - more so than any other Doctor - has been struggling to understand who he is as a person. Now that he's finally started to get a handle on his self, I don't think he wants to be plunged into uncertainty again.

    DOCTOR: I can still die. If I'm killed before regeneration, then I'm dead. Even then, even if I change, it feels like dying. Everything I am dies. Some new man goes sauntering away, and I'm dead.

    Frankly, until I saw that scene, I'd never thought about regeneration as a negative thing. I mean sure, "your" Doctor may be going, but then a new one arrives... Yay... But - to actually look at it from the Doctor's perspective... I loved that RTD gave us this... and 10's last words for me were powerful too, because I know Tennant wanted to play the Doctor his whole life, and at that point, he was my NuWho Doctor... :`}
    I always hated that. I mean it made sense considering how vain the Tenth Doctor was. But ultimately each Doctor isn't a new man each time.

    Part two was great.

    But again we have the whole "I don't want to go" routine..... But I didn't mind. I have been thinking about this for a while and regeneration is possibly one of the most traumatic things if you are not prepared for it to happen. It is in essence dying while another person steps in and takes over your life with your memories, but they're not you.

    The nano goop girl returns........ If she could have done that at any time why didn't she come sooner and save Bill? Ending was all teary and angsty..... And teary........ But it was good.

    I want to see a female Doctor now...... I'm ready.
