One of the best tricks that ‘Doctor Who’ ever pulled off was making the metaphorical deaths of each regeneration feel important and meaningful even though we know s/he’s just gonna get up with a new face afterwards.  Heck, in the case of the Tenth Doctor’s end, it was a real tear-jerker that felt final and stressful, though I’d already seen the shots of Eleven in action with his new companion.  If I were a Time Lord, I’d want to make sure the next me has executive-style silver hair and maybe a Kurt Russell jawline, leading to today’s Gallifreyan query…

The MS-QOTD (pronounced, as always, “misquoted”) will leave this one open to any interpretation, even if you want to be David Hasselhoff or Doogie Howser, asking: Tomorrow, you get to become an entirely different Gallifreyan: How will you describe your next regeneration?

Once upon a time, there was a young nerd from the Midwest, who loved Matter-Eater Lad and the McKenzie Brothers... If pop culture were a maze, Matthew would be the Minotaur at its center. Were it a mall, he'd be the Food Court. Were it a parking lot, he’d be the distant Cart Corral where the weird kids gather to smoke, but that’s not important right now... Matthew enjoys body surfing (so long as the bodies are fresh), writing in the third person, and dark-eyed women. Amongst his weaponry are such diverse elements as: Fear! Surprise! Ruthless efficiency! An almost fanatical devotion to pop culture! And a nice red uniform.

    I look like Glenn Ford but my voice is comes out like Klaus Nomi, and that’s what I use as a Sonic Screwdriver.

    Let’s mix that sucker up!
