No one is quite sure whether regenerations are harder on the Doctor or his fans. Sure, he’s literally rewriting every cell in his body, but we’re seeing the close of a relationship with someone whom we don’t want to leave. One of the reasons why it seems so difficult may be the uncertainty over exactly who the next Doctor is going to be: physically; behaviorally; psychologically; emotionally. But maybe it’s not quite an unknown after all…

We are in many ways a product of our lives’ experiences, and the Doctor has more of these experiences than most to draw from. But is there a pattern? Is there something in each iteration that helps to shape the next? We look for indicators of that possible pattern, and what it may mean for this new Doctor to come.
