The Doctor's apparent antipathy towards soldiers strikes me as rather hypocritical at best. One of his longstanding friends, Alistair Gordon Lethbridge-Stewart. Profession? Soldier. The Doctor's daughter Jenny? Soldier. Even Captain Jack Harkness can be considered a soldier. And the Doctor himself during the Time War? Soldier. Cold, Doctor, very cold.
I'll just have to wait for it to come out on DVD, I suppose. Though I'll probably be stuck waiting for someone to give it to me for my birthday, which is in about 350-odd days... ;-)
I guess we'll agree to disagree on this particular topic! Changing course, I do find it interesting how the various incarnations have different opinions on regeneration - In "The End of Time", Ten grimly compared regeneration to death: "Some new man goes sauntering away, and I'm dead." In this episode, we have Twelve reminding Clara that he's the same person who just phoned her from Trenzalore, standing right in front of her in Glasgow. They aren't two different people at all, but the same Doctor.
