comment How does regeneration work?
That's also a reasonable interpretation. To me it seems different enough that I'm not sure it's relevant though. In The War Games the 2nd Doctor is still around, with alternatives being presented to him. With Romana there's no sign that the old Romana is still present. If Romana 1 had presented each possibility to the Doctor, it'd probably be the same, but it seems that she's already gone by then.

comment Where are Frodo, Gandalf and the others going at the end and why?
From reading Silmarillion and others. Wikipedia notes that 'In Valinor, Gandalf was known as Olórin.[1] As recounted in the "Valaquenta" in The Silmarillion,[19] he was one of the Maiar of Valinor...' (en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gandalf)

From The Avengers (not the Marvel comic heroes, the British TV spies from the 1960s): theavengers.tv/forever/peel.htm

comment What is M's real name?
I like to think that this means she's Emma Peel, a few decades later. I don't think it's true, but I like the idea. Surely Mrs. Peel didn't really go back to civilian life after she stopped working with John Steed.

@HewWolff I know the scene-- I can pretty much recite that movie from memory by now!

comment King crown bearer — Peter Sellers movie?
Looking again, I kind of wonder if it was Prisoner of Zenda. That's more recent than I expected, but it's at least plausible. It doesn't look like that's available digitally though, so I don't know if I'll be able to watch it.

comment King crown bearer — Peter Sellers movie?
Not very confident-- as I mentioned I've been through his credits and found nothing that seems to match. I remember it as something that seems his style, but it doesn't seem to have actually been him.

I'm certain it's not Monty Python, only because I'm familiar enough with their work that I would have run across it at some point. It could be one of the Pythons in another project though-- I'll see what I can find. Sadly I'm not 100% certain of the dialog but it's the best I can do at this many years later.
