** Peter Capaldi went on to play none other than the '''Twelfth Doctor'''. "The Girl Who Died" explains that when he regenerated into this form, the Doctor subconciously chose to have Caecilius' face as a reminder of his duty to save anyone he can no matter what. Moffat later elaborated at the 2015 Doctor Who Festival that the tragic fate of Frobisher also factored into the Doctor's choice -- just because Time and Space fight back against the Doctor's efforts to save others doesn't mean he should give it up -- but they couldn't fit that detail into the episode.
