Where can you buy a 6th Doctor coat?

You could have a look on Ebay or Amazon.

Maybe a fan is offering to make or sell some on a Doctor Who fan site.

There is also a chance that they are available in fancy dress shops.

Failing that, you can try making your own.

You cannot buy most of the originals. The few surviving pieces are in museums.

Colin Baker (the 6th Doctor Who) had his replica costume for conventions made by an independent costume maker. My other suggestion is do the Comiccon and other fan conventions.

Who does Doctor Who marry?

The Doctor briefly married Queen Elizabeth I ("The End of Time Part I") which is referenced in "The Shakespeare Code" and "Tooth and Claw." He referenced being married at least one other time ("Blink") and had a granddaughter, Susan, suggesting another marriage. The Series 6 episode "The Doctor's Wife" suggests that the TARDIS is in a way his wife, seeing as how connected they are. The Eleventh Doctor marries River Song in the Series 6 finale "The Wedding of River Song." Also, before we were able to watch the Doctor's adventures on our television, the Doctor married a woman. It is known that the Doctor has family, however, they all most likely perished during the Time War.

In real life, the Fourth Doctor, Tom Baker, did marry the actress who played his companion Romana, Lalla Ward. David Tennant, who played the 10th Doctor, married Georgia Moffat, who played the Doctor's "generated anomaly" daughter in the 10th Doctor episode "The Doctor's Daughter". Moffat's father is Peter Davison, who played the 5th Doctor.

Who is The Doctor and why does he hate his planet?

The Doctor is the last of the Timelords, from the long running BBC si-fi series "Doctor Who".

The Timelords were a race from the planet Gallifrey. During the Last Great Time War, between the Daleks and the Timelords, The Daleks, Gallifrey and the rest of the Timelords were Destroyed. The Doctor was instrumental in the destruction thereby bringing the end of the War.

The Doctor doesn't hate his planet, but has instead, been involved in a long debate with his people about the nature of the Timelord's place in the universe. This disagreement was the genesis for The Doctors travelling lifestyle.

In 'The End of Time', we see scenes from the Time War, as the Time Lord president Rassilon prepares to shift Gallifrey itself out of the Time War, to modern day Earth. Here we learn that Time Lord society had become brutal and bloodthirsty over the course of the ceaseless war against the Daleks. Their own plan was 'the end of time itself', to destroy all of creation and for the Time Lords to ascend. This, the Doctor explained, is why he had to destroy his own people too, and never let them return.

Will there be more than 13 doctors in Doctor Who?

Maybe, Doctor Who is of a rare breed of TV shows (Super brand), so the BBC aren't going to get rid of it any time, soon, so, yes, there might be more than 13 Doctor's.

Additional: in a recent guest appearance on the Sarah Jane Adventures, the Doctor said he can regenerate more than 500 times. Although this was meant as a joke, it does reflect the opinion - stated by Russell T Davies, Steven Moffat and David Tennant in various interviews - that the whole 13-life limit thing is pretty meaningless, especially with the Time Lords gone. Even back in the 1970s when they first introduced it no one believed the Doctor would stick to this rule when he got there. So unless the BBC cancels the show in the meantime, there will be a 14th Doctor, and a 15th...

Why are Captain Jack's memory's erased?

This is true but Jacks memories were removed before the Doctor met him. He tells us when Rose first encounters him in series one:

For a start, it isn't Captain Jack, it is in fact Donna Noble. At the end of the fourth series, David Tennant's final full series, when Donna touched the Doctor's spare hand, resulting in a second version of the Doctor growing out of it, only this one is part human, the Doctor's mind went into Donna's and the powers of his mind were sowly killing her. So, to prevent this from happening, the Doctor had no option but to erease her memory completely of all the things they did together. If she remembered for just one second, she would begin to burn up and be erased from existence totally.

How does the Doctor give River Song his screwdriver if it changed?

Your question isn't quite clear, but if you are referring to the screwdriver River has when she meets the Tenth Doctor: the Doctor from the future knew River was about to go to her death (remember they keep meeting out of order). He gave her his screwdriver because he knew his Tenth self would need it to save her. As for why it looks different, every time the sonic screwdriver is destroyed irreparably, the TARDIS presents him with a new one and sometimes the design changes.

Improvement: I might know what you mean. River's screwdriver does look quite similar to the Tenth Doctor's blue one, as apposed to the Eleventh Doctor's green one. Which is a strange thing really, but I suppose that the future Doctor would have purposefully given River one that looked like the Tenth Doctor's, so it would make sense to the Tenth Doctor. WIBBLY WOBBLY TIMEY WIMEY!

What will happen when the 13th Doctor dies?

Basically, when the 13th Doctor dies, he will regenerate. They're not going to kill of the main character of the show for the sake of continuity. I think Russel T Davies sneaked in that '503' line into the Sarah Jane Adventures to make it clear that there isn't really a set amount of regenerations he can have.

When they said that he could only have 12 regenerations, they didn't know how successful and how long the show would actually last for.

And of course, when the 503rd Doctor dies... If the show is still successful in about 1000 years time, I'm sure they can rewrite the rules.
