Because the Eighth is one of my favourite Doctors and there isn't enough Time War art with him and his scruff.

Still don't know how I feel about this picture though...

I love this picture! Great idea to show him in his new outfit. I always found it rather hard to believe that he would go through the Time War dressed in velvet.
I spend this vacation listening to his audio's, and I love them! Have to admit I only finished those with Lucie Miller. I haven't had the chance to listen to the others, but I really like 8 now.

love the color. It really speaks out how devastating this war was to the Doctor.

Do we actually know which Doctor did all that Time War stuff? The whole "Rose" episode was kind of lacking as far as backstory. :hmm:

Supposedly, a report on Clive Finch's site (Clive was the guy Rose discussed the Doctor sightings with in "Rose") states that Nine, in Eight's clothes, returned to Totter's Lane on Earth, got himself drunk, and wandered around a while stating that "they're all gone, I'm the only one left". This implies the 8->9 regen was at or near the end of the Time War (caused by "The Moment"?), because of the Doctor's erratic state and what he said ("they" being the Time Lords). This would mean Eight lasted straight through the Time War to the end.

However it's also the theory that Eight didn't make it all the way through the Time War which would explain Nine and his more bad ass 'fighters' appearance and his anger that Rose eventually tames.

Poor Nine, being born during a war. No wonder he was a little socially awkward, but I love him all the same~

Is the Time War actually in the movie?
LadyLunaTheLunatic's avatar

The 1st version of the 9th Doctor..... I'm happy that Eccleston became the official 9th. but i still want sex bot Master too be Cannon! Every TARDIS needs a Sex Bot Master! Every house hold!

No. The Time War is a part of the Doctor's history that doesn't really have any legit works, so it's really up to fans' imagination. Paul McGann did introduce his own take on what the Doctor would have looked like during the war however during a con, so that's what this is based off of.

The tv movie features the seventh Doctor dying, 8 being amnesiac and thinking he's as young as he looks and flirting/kissing Grace and then some mad plot about the master trying to steal his remaining lives while the tardis itself threatens to destroy the world.

The timewar was just an attempt by rtd to explain 8's regeneration into 9 and the absense of the timelords.

Yeah, I thought the Time War wasn't actually in something, we're just supposed to pick up clues or make it up or whatever, but the description confused me :D

Sadly, no. Although it would be interesting to see!

I actually kinda like it better as piecing together clues, as long as they keep giving us clues ^^

Yeah, I agree with that! :D It would keep the fans guessing, but wouldn't be just kind of the "they're all gone" smack in the face that we were given in Series 1.

I found the movie incredibly disappointing considering I really love Paul's Doctor, so I ended up listening to the Big Finish audio dramas to get a real feel and love for the Eighth Doctor, rather than basing my opinion on only the movie.

i'll have to try and listen to them too. i did see the "cartoon" w/ him on the BBC website, i really liked it.
