The Doctor: “But a hundred and one places to see, and you haven’t been to any of them, have you? That’s why you keep the book.”
Clara: “I keep the book ’cause I’m still going.”
The Doctor: “But you don’t run out on the people you care about. Wish I was more like that. See, the thing about a time machine is that you can run away all you like and still be back for tea, so what do you say? Anywhere, all of time and space right outside those doors.”

“We all change. When you think about it, we are all different people, all through our lives. And that’s okay, that’s good, you gotta keep moving, so long as you remember all the people that you used to be. I will not forget one line of this. Not one day… I swear. I will always remember when the Doctor was me.”
— Eleventh Doctor, The Time of The Doctor
And now we have reached the end of the Eleventh Doctor. And I don’t know if I’ll ever get used to it. Don’t get me wrong, I’m loving the Twelfth Doctor, but Eleven… I wasn’t ready for him to go.
That being said, he had a great final scene. And I liked how they aligned the Doctor’s regenerations, and the fact that he really does become different people, with everyday life and the way that people change throughout their lives. Everyone stays the same, while becoming different, all through their lives.
