In the way that something is when you've wondered what it would be like to see it and then you finally do. I suppose awe-inspiring should have been my word. ;)

Wellll... it could be that the War Doctor got more than his share of outfits burnt, ripped or otherwise damaged during the Time War, and by the end of it all he only had the Eighth Doctor's and Sixth Doctor's outfits left in his wardrobe, and he thought the former would be a more dignified outfit to meet his end in...

Oh, who the hell am I kidding? Any theory I come up with is just going to get blown out of the water a week tomorrow anyway. But hey, canon or not, always a great drawing!

For some odd reason I really don't like the odd doctors vey much (ie 1,3,5,7,9,11) ( apart for one exception, 5th one )

Does the date on the TARDIS say March 26, 2005? (that was my 26th birthday)

Yeah, that was also the date that 'Rose' first aired in the UK! Ahhh, memories. As a Doctor Who fan you should be thrilled that you share your birthday with such a momentous occaision in Doctor Who history.

If memory serves me right, I think he changed his outfit during the war.

I'm guessing that 8 got out of Gallifrey barely alive and it exploded behind as his TARDIS escaped, which damaged the TARDIS. He regenerated due to the Time War, and his TARDIS regenerated too into it's 2005 form.

This is amazing and I think really highlights the transition. I mean, you have Eight, with all the hyperactive adorableness, fancy clothes and tendency to snog random companions just for the hell of. And then after the Time War you get Nine, and while he's not as cold and brooding as the fandom likes to portray him, he's still a lot darker - dresses in practical civilian clothes and at first claims he doesn't really need anyone, and for me the transition is just heartbreaking. I can just imagine him after his regeneration, feeling all uncomfortable in these fancy clothes and looking for something that fits him better....

Okay, I'll shut up now. But this is really awesome and I think I might go write fic about it. Props to you. (Although his hands look a little awkward and his ears look a little too big...)

I totally agree with you. Apart from the hands... really? The ears, possibly, but I really like it anyway. (And what's your name on FanFiction? I'll look you up. Later, though, I'm feeling lazy.)

It would of been nice to of seen a regeneration scene in the tv series from 8th to 9th.. but no, i do believe 8 and 9 looks closely familiar.

This is a great one! I've got to say, Eccleston is probably my favorite Doctor. Usually TV production companies have clauses in their leading actor's contract that specifies a two series commitment if it's a hit, which New Who was. Someone at the Beeb should have gotten fired over his quick departure.
Reply
:iconvanshirakasores:
VanshiraKasores Featured By Owner Feb 16, 2013  Hobbyist Writer
I think it was Eccleston's own idea.
Reply
:iconagent00soul:
Agent00Soul Featured By Owner Feb 19, 2013
It definitely was, but the standard contract is to sign the star for two years, which I don't think the Beeb did in this case. Unless Eccleston himself broke his contract.
Reply
:iconvanshirakasores:
VanshiraKasores Featured By Owner Feb 20, 2013  Hobbyist Writer
...To the best of my knowledge, it was only a one-year contract (and after all, given the Doctor's nature, it wasn't like they couldn't get away with hiring a new actor anyway, or didn't know that they could).
