I saw an article, but could find it again, about what if Capaldi regenerated in the final 2-Parter this season with the Mondasian Cybermen?
I thought that was intriguing. Since after all, The First Doctor regenerated after meeting them 51 years ago in The Tenth Planet.
But it just a stunt to think like that. Because then you have Moffatt’s last episode, the 2017 Christmas Special (usually filmed in July or such) for a Post-Regeneration episode, ala The Christmas Invasion and is that really the proper way to end The Moffat Era?
I think not. As good an idea as it is, it’s timing is bad. Now if the Mondasians were coming back for Christmas instead, then I could see it.
The logistical, and press/fan nightmare of this idea is too hideous because they would have to unveil the 13th before Capaladi’s last season, ala Matt Smith in 2009 and I don’t see that occurring.
Nice idea. But wrong timey-wimey.
