The Last Words Of The Doctor

The hero of the hit scifi series Doctor Who is a Time Lord. When Time Lords die, they can come back to life through a process called “regeneration,” which gives them a new form and even a new personality.

The Doctor has regenerated eleven times, and is about to regenerate again at the end of the year. The regeneration of Doctor Who is undoubtedly one the most popular aspects of the show, and always a dramatic moment. Here’s an overview of the deaths of every Doctor so far.
