Re: What exactly is Regeneration like to the Doctor?
Well, it's sort of like a rebirth, so it's probably as painful as labour. The reason they're getting more explosive over time is due to the repeated trauma from the large number of accumulated regenerations, sort of like a recurrent/worsening perineal tear...
Enjoy your dinner, folks!
Now we know why there is a limit to regenerations. If a Time Lord goes beyond 13 say good bye to your favorite galaxy and it's closest three neighbors.
