Of course the Doctor knew, I'm not understanding the point you're making? Might not be forefront in his mind though, since he kept The War Doctor buried.
His inability to regenerate not in the forefront of his mind? I can't wait for your reaction the Christmas special.
You misunderstand, I'm saying his first impulse might have been that he might be able to Regenerate from the poison (for like a half second. You know, like in the beginning when someone important to you dies, or you break up with someone, and something big or funny happens, your first impulse is "I gotta tell so and so about this"... until you remember you can't a second later)
That'd work if he didn't know he was going to die at Lake Silencio, but he know ahead of time and that's he replaced himself with the Teselecta.
