^ Seems a bit fanwanky, IMHO. Didn't his character have a family? And was Karen Gillan's character actually Amy too?

The Moff is guilty of doing some fanwanky things himself.

Granted I don't expect them to do anything like that, though when I read it it brought a smile to my face and I thought it'd be a neat reveal. And yes, his character in that episode did have a family.

I think he remembered the look of the Pompeii guy and modeled his new body after him. Like he did with Colin Baker .

^ True re The Moff, and I have to admit, I'd cream myself with excitement, particularly if they did a sort of Trials and Tribble-ations thing and weaved a new story around it. (Fickle, me?)

Yea, 12 found a way to go back and grab Amy for a trip. And, actually, it wasn't 10 they were keeping an eye, it was Donna, they were trying to find a way to prevent the DoctorDonna breakdown.

I read a crazy theory that I wouldn't put it past them to use. But someone suggested that Capaldi's character from 'Fires of Pompeii' could really be the 12th Doctor keeping an eye on 10 for whatever reason.
Probably not, as timelords can sense each other.

Probably, that's pretty much the theory I'm going with. Although really, I just imagine that the doctor randomly thinks about his time in Pompeii, and that dude from FOP happens to be on his mind for some reason, and Bobs you're uncle. Same with the 5th doctor regenerating into the sixth.

I thought The Fifth Doctor was thinking about Adric's floating head and Ainley's pantomime villain chuckle as he snuffed the candle.

I really don't know. Confession, I've never actually seen the Caves of Androzani, and just seen the regeneration on its own a few times, but I can't recall it well enough.

Maybe in-between that cloud of people he was thinking about was Maxel. Maybe it was just a random lottery.

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.

Re: Do you like the idea of Peter Capaldi as the 12th Doctor?

In any case, I hope we get a special minisode similar to the Children in Need 2005 one where we can at least have a couple of minutes with the 12th Doctor post-regeneration. I don't want to wait 4 more months after Christmas to see Capaldi's doctor and how he'll act in the role.

I suspect it'll be closer to 8 months before we see the 12th Doctor in action and the Children In Need specials are generally aired in Nov. before the Christmas special.

I know, but I hope they at least release something online like "Pond Life" or the little episode prequels. A 2-3 minute scene to whet our appetites won't do any harm.

There are only so many body types in the universe, eventually it's likely the Doctor will end up with one that looks suspiciously like someone elses...

Re: Do you like the idea of Peter Capaldi as the 12th Doctor?

Romana proved that Timelords can program their regeneration if they're not in a rush...

Maybe there's a limited amount of emergency default regenerations if you are in a rush?

Considering that they can age backwards as easily as forwards, according to River in let's kill Hitler, it's possible that one "body" can last for millions of years... But then cell fatigue might be independent of outward appearance that if you keep the appearance of a 32 year old for 10,000 years, your body is going to get bored... Wait! DS9 In The Cards, the crazy scientist experimenting with immortality by keeping cells excited, that's the police Lieutenant in Continuum... Fuck me, he lost some weight.
