The Doctor Regenerates in the Christmas Special, DOCTOR WHO: THE TIME OF THE DOCTOR, Premiering December 25 on BBC America

As the eleventh hour nears, a regeneration is on the horizon, but not before the Doctor (Matt Smith) and his companion, Clara (Jenna Coleman), enjoy one last adventure. This year's Doctor Who Christmas special marks the end of the Eleventh Doctor. Through his many adventures, this Doctor has rescued dinosaurs on a spaceship, married his love - River Song and encountered aliens including The Silence, Daleks, Cybermen, Weeping Angels and more. But it was his latest adventure, THE DAY OF THE DOCTOR, that effectively changed the course of his history as we know it when he and twelve versions of himself banded together to save Gallifrey from destruction. Now facing his very last adventure, the Eleventh Doctor receives a signal that brings him face-to-face with a massed force of the universe's deadliest aliens. What this signal means for his future life is unknown, but when the clock strikes twelve, the Eleventh will be no more.

  1. The Doctor sleeps, to rise no more
    His resting place is Trenzalore...

    The Doctor may not be the only one regenerating in the Christmas episode; The Time Of The Doctor.

    There's a youtube clip going around, that's had over 13,000 views so far, of the apparent next 'regeneration' of The Master

    who will be facing off against Capaldi in the forthcoming eighth series.

    According to several tweets by tweeter '@jamesstoker1963' The Master maybe returning for the Christmas episode and beyond.

    He's tweeted the youtube audition clip with these details:

    "I got this apparent audition clip from a youtube user account IzzyAlive (which now seems to have been deleted) who claimed: "A friend of mine in an actors co-operative agency got sent this clip with 4 others in an email that they'd been 'CC'D into when casting another show I can't mention.

    The other 3 clips were relevant to the show they were casting but this one was marked:

    'The Master DW2014' (Moff select final review clip).

    I don't know who the actor is but maybe they're going with an 'unknown' to play The Master after casting a 'known' actor in Peter Capaldi to play the 12th Doctor? I guess we'll find out soon enough"
