"My face... I haven't gotten used to it yet. It still looks so foreign to me."

This is Prompt #27 - "Foreign" in the Doctor Who 100 Theme Challenge. I saw the word and immediately started thinking about the doctor's reaction to his new self after the end of season one. We all know Rose had a hard time dealing with it, but can you imagine having to get used to looking at yourself in the mirror completely changed?

Well, as the 5th Doctor said to the 10th "Get a good look of these cheekbones, Doctor, cause you'll be shaving them one day":)

I kind of like it :)
But Rose looks a bit like Agatha Christie from the fourth series ;)

It was quite the shock at first, especially to Rose. For whatever reason it made him really weak and all he could do was sleep and lay in bed. I remember Rose mentioning that only one of his hearts was still beating, which only happens in times of extreme weakness or trauma. I remember how scared of loosing him she was. I think the best part of the eposide though was when Rose's mother was more concerned about making tea than the aliens coming to attack Earth. :XD: Interestingly enough, at least in the new series Rose is the only one that ever watched him regenerate and stayed with him. She loved him no matter WHAT he looked like.

Haha, kind of late to the party here, but... ahh, I wish they'd gone even more into how it felt for both the Doctor and Rose to deal with his new "face." Can you imagine if someone you loved got a completely new face, body, and voice, and a slightly different personality? I wonder if he still smells the same, or if his hands feel different now, etc. For the Doctor, do you think he has to, like, relearn what foods upset his stomach and how often he needs to shave? Must be weird to suddenly be a different height, too!
