Doctor Who "The Time of the Doctor" Christmas Episode SPOILERS

By Dave Bouressa

According to a report from Followingthenerd, The Sun newspaper has been releasing spoilers about the upcoming Christmas episode of Doctor Who, "The Time of the Doctor". This episode will mark the end of Matt Smith's run as the 11th Doctor, with the episode showing his regeneration into Peter Capaldi as the 12th Doctor.

Considering Mark Gatiss and Neil Gaiman have both tweeted for fans to not buy The Sun, it could mean one of two things. 1) They really do have the inside scoop, or 2) The BBC is making one hell of a publicity stunt. 

We have the spoilers below, but know that these are definitely spoilers that will ruin the episode. As a last chance to change your mind, here is the teaser for "The Time of the Doctor".

Last chance to back out......GERONIMO!!!!

In the words of River Song, "Spoilers...."

The Doctor will lose a leg before regenerating: Apparently, while filming the episode Smith hurt his leg and it was written into the story. He will lose the limb to the Weeping Angels, if The Sun is to believed: ” The Doctor will lose his leg as he attempts to flee his collected enemies and hide in a clock tower – presumably the source of the ominous tolling bell that echoes across the universe. As he attempts his escape a Weeping Angel will grab hold of his leg, turning it to stone, which is a sure-fire way of losing any limb.
The 300-year Weeping Angel War: After losing his leg, the Doctor will embark on a 300-year war with the Weeping Angels – though where this fits with the regeneration is anyone’s guess – this war will also feature several of the Doctor’s classic enemies (presumably as hinted at in the teaser above). Also, most of the episode will take place in Christmas Town.
The story will feature the Daleks, Cybermen and Sontarans: Yes, there’s going to be a host of villains at Trenzalore to see the Doctor die… in fact, the rumour is the Doctor will challenge the Daleks to kill him. Also, the Cybermen will appear in both their metal and wooden incarnations.
Remember the time crack from Smith’s first season? That’ll be resolved: We will find out what the crack is – and apparently it was caused by the Time Lords in The Day of the Doctor, whether this means it’s because the Doctor undid his own history is unsure, but the Sun says they “range in size, and are caused by two points in time that should never touch coming into contact with each other.”
Apparently a massive crack will appear near the end of the episode and glimpses from the show’s long history will appear within it and a problem that has been a scourge of modern Doctor Who will be resolved by this. Hmmmmmm….
The Doctor will be granted more regenerations: The time lords will appear in the crack at the end and will thank the Doctor for all he has done (saving Gallifrey and Trenzalore) and will grant him a whole new set of regenerations. Finally, the regeneration to Peter Capaldi is said to be one of the finest scenes in the show’s history. -Followingthenerd

Merry Christmas.

"The Time of the Doctor" will premiere Christmas night at 9pm on BBC and BBC America.
