^Okay, I'm in.
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.
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.
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...
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.
Like this? Lol
Lol. Yeah Cribbins not included in the mini rant.
I had the same discussion with a friend about how he would possibly approach the role. We oddly both said a mixture of Tom and Jon but just a little, not ott homage.
He has the almost ruggedly elegant look of Pertwee too.
And yeah, a suit would just make Tucker fans expect "Suck my four sweaty timelord balls you fat fuck." Or "Exterminate me with your egg fucking whisk you tin can c*nt."
Bit late to this (been on hoilday) but I think its a very bold and exciting choice. I love him on "Thick of It" and I do wonder how he will take on Who + I wonder if Moffat faced any pressure from BBC to cast young again or was he given free reign.
Are we sure Peter Capaldi isn't just Eric Idle having a go?
And if it actually was him, would any of us actually mind?
I would. I doubt I would watch Eric Idle in Doctor Who. He is my least favorite Python -- and I will leave it at that because I'm being polite.
Fair enough. I've always loved Eric Idle (although he's not my favorite or even my second favorite Python) but I guess he's not everyone.
He created the Rutles. That's good enough for me.
The cover for the next Doctor Who Magazine is out. That's not likely to be his costume, but he certainly has an interesting look.
Co-created, with Neil Innes. Idle had the idea, Innes wrote the music and made it work.
He wrote the Nudge Nudge sketch. That's good enough for me.
