This past weekend I got together with my friend Austin and we filmed a Doctor Who short. The main element I wanted to showcase was the regeneration, but I thought that there should be a backstory to support what was going on. I had to come up with something simple that would cause the Doctor to regenerate. I generated some simple ideas: stubbing his toe/finger, getting a paper cut, hitting his funny bone, etc. Then I realized that I owned a copy of Whoology – The Official Doctor Who Miscellany, which has a picture of the TARDIS on the front. I figured this would be an interesting read for the Doctor, and I settled on the idea of a paper cut.
