Re: Do you like the idea of Peter Capaldi as the 12th Doctor?
The fifth Doctor's regeneration was a rather desperate attempt to save his life and in the end to defy the Master's taunt, I don't think there was any attempt made to copy Maxil's body. And the faces were only those of the fifth Doctor's companons and in the end the Master, with the companons imploring him to live and the Master telling him to die.
The greatest science fiction series of all time is
Doctor Who! And I'll take you all on, one-by-one
or all in a bunch to back it up!"
