Re: Are regenerations still capped at 12?

1) Tennant didn't know that he was going to get killed by radiation when he was worrying earlier in the story.
2) Davison setting the TARDIS going echoes Hartnell doing the same first time round (which, originally, was because the TARDIS, rather than travelling in time, was going to reverse time within its interior, de-ageing the Doctor... but that idea got tweaked into something a bit more mystical by the time it was shot. But nevertheless, the intent in Caves of Androzani was definitely to echo the Tenth Planet change: until it became obvious that there wasn't enough studio time left, director Graeme Harper was planning to reproduce the 'throbbing' console room lighting from the original change).
