Peter Capaldi Becomes Doctor Who: Watch Now!

at .  Updated at . Comments

Well, that was an emotional way to conclude Christmas.

On Doctor Who  Season 7 Episode 16, Matt Smith bid farewell to his beloved title role by regenerating into Peter Capaldi during the installment's moving final few moments.

He saw Amelia - the first face his face ever saw - once again. He said goodbye to Clara. And he came face-to-face with a returning Amy Pond for a couple seconds.

It was tear-inducing stuff... and then - whoosh! - like that, it was over. Capaldi's version of The Time Lord debuted, yabbering about his kidneys and asking Clara one basic question: Can she fly the TARDIS?
