Since the faces in The Brain Of Morbius were abiguous they can viewed either way, even though it was the intent of Terrence Dicks from what I understand that the faces were the Doctor's own. However I don't know how much weight that carries since Robert Holmes rewrote the story.
FWIW, Terrance Dicks's book write-up of Morbius fudges the issue: "The debonair white-haired features of the Doctor as Sarah had first known him... Yet another Doctor appeared on teh screen - a dark haired little man with a whimsical expression. Then another face... a proud-looking old man. Sarah had a confused impression of even more faces on the screen." (I've skipped copying the bits that are simply quoting the dialogue as onscreen).
