I like black orchid too!

Is there much chance wild endeavor will get the go ahead? I'm actually really curious to see how cringe worthily bad/ surprisingly good it will be

January 1976, the brains of morbius aired, all of those past doctors

I wonder why most of the regenerations were in reverse image. Quite distracting.

Doctor Who TV staff --- can we please get some comment from Steven Moffat about this Wild Endeavour thing. Someone from the BBC needs to reassure me that this abomination will not be allowed.

Can I set up a Kickstarter campaign to stop A Wild Endeavour?

Ugh! No offense to anyone involved but "A Wild Endeavour" looks utterly awful. The guy who's clearly going to be playing the young Doctor is awful. Anything dealing with this period of the Doctor's life is clearly out of bounds and an utter "No No" for any true fan. The BBC will never license it. Am I correct in thinking that Russell T Davies was so horrified by the idea of a Young Doctor Who that he created the SJC instead for CBBC.I mean, what the absolute f**k is this? Yee Jee Tso - get a real acting job.

I'm... really not sold on A Wild Endeavour. Don't get me wrong, I admire what they're trying to do, and I'm interested to see what comes out of it, but if they're trying to connect this in with Doctor Who canon in any way then I'd really like to see some evidence they've talked to the BBC about this. Otherwise I feel like it's either going to get shut down hard (like so many fannish projects do), which is a pity, or end up completely disconnected from Doctor Who, which kinda defeats the purpose.

A Wild Endeavour sounds amazing, I REALLY hope the get the money, however it looks unlikely as they don't have a lot of time left........... we can do this people!

January 1976 was The Brain of Morbius, and the scene Yee Jee Tso was referring to was The Mind Bending scene which showed other Doctors so to finally get an answer will be good. I'm looking forward to it. I hope it's televised so we can finally have a Doctor Who TV Spin off series!

A Wild Endeavour looks fantastic! But I think I've deciphered the clue already. 

January 1976 was The Brain of Morbius. Previous incarnations of either Morbius or the Doctor. All of the main characters in Endeavour are previous incarnations of the Doctor. Bam, gimme a medal.

Everyone looks very odd in the mirrored regenerations video, especially Tennant and Jenna :P

A Wild Endeavour looks incredible! And the concept is intruiging.

A guy called BrianRimmer put together a much better compilation of the regenerations, without the mirroring and including the Meta Crisis one. He hasn't posted it to YouTube for some reason, but you can see it here:

Time Lords at War was awesome, I loved it!

Don't know what to think about A Wild Endeavour...

Won't A wild endeavour be non cannon to Doctor who because BBC is not making this.

@IanChesterton1  Honestly I think you're just trying to make a fuss at this point, you've made tons of comments and replied to other people about your dislikes of the proposed program when they gave a different opinion. Calm down.

@WhoFanNo565  I don't want to sound like a miserable old g*t but, really?!? Sound amazing!? It looks and sounds awful... awful!!!!

@Doctor Capaldi  I thought this debate was closed  especially after seeing the other faces  of the Doctor in Human nature,  The next Doctor,  The Eleventh Hour,  The Name of the Doctor,  Day of the Doctor and when he referred to the regeneration limit in Time of the Doctor. 

The other faces we seen in the mind bending scene were previous incarnations of Morbius.

@Pockydon  That would contradict events in the Time of the Doctor though. Unless the Doctor had an entirely different cycle before Hartnell

@COswinPond  I think a mind battle between the Doctor and  a headless Time Lord makes it pretty special.

@COswinPond Yep Watermaster24 is right, it as also knows for featuring the Sisterhood of Khan, who we later saw in "Night of the Doctor". A pretty crap story, but it does address some intriguing facts about regeneration...

Wastemaster24
Wastemaster24

@chrispilot2293  there is a moment where you see other faces during a doctor-morbius fight it is thought these are mobius but due to what is said it is deemed impossible so there are other incarnations of the doctor that are considered non-cannon

@ivegotkidneys  For a 20 minute regeneration, I think I can enjoy it lol - I say that mainly because that whole 20 minutes technically count, and it's such a emotional rollercoaster that when it finally stopped I've had enough.

@JFrance649 Well, yes and no. The project is simply a pilot to show to the BBC, if the BBC likes it/thinks it is a profitable idea than they may choose to green light it at which point it would become a series made by the BBC. Of course the BBC could pass it up, in which case it would simply be a one-off fan thing.

@JFrance649  Big Finish make a lot of Doctor who audios independent from the Beeb and were still confirmed as canon.

Xisco Lozdob

@JFrance649  Well, you can accept anything as head canon. Take, for instance, the case of the way the Time Lords are born. Are they loomed or do they reproduce sexually? Some sources contradict the others, so, ultimately, it is the individual whovian who has to choose what to believe as canon or not in some aspects of the whoniverse.

@ilyootha @IanChesterton1  I don't think that means anything whatsoever. I watched the video, read the blurb, gave it a chance. It's a horrible idea badly executed. Nothing more hackneyed than a Young (Insert Name of Hero) concept. My opinion. You aren't forced to read it or consider it ;)

@CalebBeck @IanChesterton1  I'm perfectly calm, thanks. But I do have a strong opinion. I'm therefore using the comment section in a perfectly reasonable, inoffensive manner that does not violate any rules.

@IanChesterton1 @WhoFanNo565  Oh my God! Someone dared to write their opinion on a public chat. Let me reply with my umpteenth post about my totally opposite opinion on the subject!!!!!!111!!!one!!!

@Teh Doctor @JFrance649  Yes but it's licensed by the BBC AND wasn't considered canon by everyone until Moffat said so. However, everything on TARDIS wikia is considered canon until proven not.

@Xisco Lozdob @JFrance649No one apart from the producers of the spin-off will count it as canon, it ruins the established canon of the TV series.

"It's a horrible idea badly executed"- yet it hasn't been executed yet...

@The8thDoctor @IanChesterton1  Incorrect. Their stated plan is to pitch the "pilot" to networks in the attempt to get it commissioned. Therefore BBC endorsement is kinda required. It is perfectly reasonable to question the judgement and even maybe the morality of attempting to raise over a million pounds for a project that clearly cannot fulfil its stated end goal

The8thDoctor
The8thDoctor

@IanChesterton1 @The8thDoctor They are driven and have a goal to make a fan film,  I see nothing negative about that and BBC endorsement is not required provided they are not marketing the project for profit.

Depends how you see it. I'm part of the crowd that considers his regeneration to have started on the clocktower. I don't think the burst of energy was because of the reset, because he was forcing it out just like Tennant was holding it in. I don't think Timelords would've made the reset or regeneration to be as destructive as theirs were (as they have done it before), there are obviously certain dangers that happen when you don't just let regeneration run its natural course.
