The thing is, it was explained sorta. Each regeneration causes him to get younger, and the 12th doctor (technically 13th since 10th had 2 regenerations) broke the cycle that Time Lords are only supposed to regenerate 12 times, that's why the 11th doctor was aging on "Christmas" his regerations were up. Then -skips many spoilers- at some point the 12th doctor came and the cycle started all over again, so now he is older again, so now we can expect 50 more years of doctor who (maybe) for the cycle has once again been started. Sorry for long post
@High Summoner Braska, you, my sir, explained something to me that I have been trying to understand for a while. Thanks!
@High Summoner Braska, does that mean, in the end up, he'll be a baby?
@High Summoner Braska, actually its been said on the show he can regenerate more than 13 times
@High Summoner Braska, ignore my reply lol .3.
@Whovian4ever, ._. I already explained why its 12 xD
@High Summoner Braska, I love you just for explaining that because that was confusing me for a really long time.
@High Summoner Braska, don't apologize.
@High Summoner Braska, Actually then, he would be 14 because of the War doctor, who is technically 9.
@High Summoner Braska, didn't River Song also give her regenerations to him at some point?
@Jezza Clarkson, she gave him her regeneration power to he wouldn't die after she poisoned him
@High Summoner Braska, I thought that when the 10th doctor regenerated twice the second time he used his hand that he had so it didn't take up another regeneration? And I saw an interview with Stephen Moffat, the lead writer of the show and he said after the doctor regenerates 13 times then the show's over bc he can't go anymore. I'm not saying you're wrong I'm just sooo confused lol
@High Summoner Braska, are you forgetting John Hurt?
@SuperWhoLock Ho, how is he #9? I thought he was #1?
@Not tellin, Nope. Number Nine:)
@High Summoner Braska, I have thought about that theory before ,but it doesn't work if you look back to Colin baker (who was quite young) because the next actor after him was older
@Partyrocker77, it was stated in the show ._.
@High Summoner Braska, thanks for the long post
@Whovian4ever, when? I don't recall that
@High Summoner Braska, that's a nice idea but isn't true as until matt smith peter Davidson was the youngest doctor (the 5th doctor) and so obviously the 6th and 7th and so on doctors must have been older particuarlly the seventh doctor is noticabley older further more Christopher eccleston is clearly older than Paul mcgann the eighth doctor or now they've added him in tlpaul McCann is clearly younger than the war doctor John hurt... sorry for the long post
@Master Terra, ahhhh! That makes sense! I always thought it was more that the Doctor didn't like life as a "responsible adult" (a lie that actually broke the psychic paper) so he kept aging himself younger and younger with each regeneration, like the war doctor implied.
Meh. It's all just a ball of timey-wimey anyways (sorry if that's not right, I don't watch it)
@Firmest Midget, hey it's pretty close for someone who doesn't watch!
@Firmest Midget, wibbly-wobbly, timey-wimey, flim-flam lol
@Firmest Midget, that's okay, me neither
William Hartnell FTW!!! Oh wait, it's just me that's watched all original Doctor Who? Well fvck...
Soo we heard you like the doctor so we put some doctor facts with your doctors facts.... The more you know *rainbow hands*
I've been watching doctor who all day, I'm two episodes away from the end of season 4 with David Tennant. My mind is pretty much fried, but I enjoyed this.
Not exactly awkward...
He gets younger with every refeneration.
@SJSJSK9, I didn't know i could refenerate. How does one accomplish this?
@SJSJSK9, lool at 12?
Matt smith is my favorite doctor. Please don't kill me
Doctor Who is like the only series that keeps getting better with age

Ugh, curse all the wibbly-wobbly timey-windy
Except that both pertwee and hurt were older than him
F**k. What did I just read.
Actually isn't the newest doctor the oldest. After that regeneration her really looks his age
@George Feeny, peter capaldi is 50 and the oldest doctor william hartnell was like... 60 or 70
That awkward moment when this is no longer true.
