But not in the name of the Doctor by MatiasSoto But not in the name of the Doctor by MatiasSoto
"What I did , I did without choice...
in the name of peace and sanity..."

I don't want to spoil it for those who haven't got up to date yet, with the latest episodes of Doctor Who.
But MAAAAAN I can't wait for the 50 Anniversary Special!!!
Just having and Tennant and Smith together would be enough but the storyline with John Hurt's character is promising to be awesome.
I REALLY REALLY wish Eccleston would have at least a small part in it , but Who knows?( see what I did there? ) maybe he is in it and we've been taken for a ride by show-runner Steven Moffat (like that hasn't happen before)

This started out as a quick sketch out of my excitement,anxiety and frustration after reading the description of the trailer that was shown in SDCC (which I didn't attend to).
I wanted to give that feeling for the gritty, terrible life this character must've had. But then I liked it so much I spend another hour coloring it.
Pencilled and inked all traditionally, colors in PS CS 2.

I hope you guys dig it :)

It felt a bit clunky on further viewings.

 The first time I saw it I really liked it, but in a deeper analysis I think it did well on the emotional scenes(it made me weep a few times), and both and Matt and Jenna gave stellar performances, even the other woman (I don't remember her name now, the Nun from the Silence) was a great too. 
It was what I come to expect from Moffat: he's great on the emotional scenes, he's very clever and imaginative writer, but when he writes on the clock his stories get clunky, oddly paced and a bit overcrowded(and sometimes blatant paradoxes). There's just too much going on. On this single episode it happened aprox. 600 years! I think the story would've benefited much more if it was splitted on two parts, like on the final two episodes for David Tennant's Doctor, to give it more space to breath.

 At least I felt satisfied it did solve for the most part the plot threads that were dangling ever since the "Eleventh Hour", but I think it could've been much better, but it wasn't that bad either and it was salvaged by the great performances.

Yeah, I know what you mean man, I enjoyed it, but after the 50th episode it felt a little weak for sure. I think that Moffat was a great occasional writer, but didn't suit being the main writer on the Series.  I did like the threads such as the crack in the wall and the silence returning, that was cool :) As you say, it wasn't without redeeming features but as a whole, it felt like an episode that wasn't good enough to be Matt Smith's final one... Still, looking forward to Mr Capaldi's first series :D

I did this one much just by guessing what had been shown on comic-con back on July because by then no footage had been shown yet.
Indeed the War Doctor was terrific, such a wonderful actor and made the transition of a grumpy war-hardened old man to the be a genuine Doctor by the end of the Special, such a treat ! :)

 I'm thinking of doing an image of the Time War as it originally ended, as we can assume it first ended in destruction to make the events of the 50th possible.
 
 It will focus on the 9th Doctor, just after regenerating from the War Doctor, albeit in a significantly more sorrowful context.

***SPOILERS***













Not necessarily, as I gather, The Doctor (War Doctor and the ones after) went on to think they actually killed everyone, there's no paradox, it's just that up until now (till Matt Smith Doctor) he just didn't remember what he actually did.

So he is (in theory) Doctor 8, just at a different point in his own history?

Nope, he's another regeneration. Watch "The Night of the Doctor" minisode which explains his origin:

Ok.  Doesn't explain much, but I think I get it.  The Time War is occurring while the Doctor from the TV movie (8) tried to save the girl, she refused, and lands (crashes) on a planet where the control of regeneration was possible.  He sets aside the name 'Doctor' and becomes a warrior and leads up to the original events of the Time Wars' ending (Galifre's destruction/exile from time and space--see End of Days).  After that, be becomes 'Doctor' after the war and turns into 9. So here's my question: is this really an expended regen and Smith (11) is actually 12, or as others have put it is it a side-regen that has nothing to do with the actual beings' regen cycle and (as somewhere on the internet states due to a gag made) the Doctor can regen over 500 times?

Steven Moffat has been going on about this these last few days: "the Sisterhood of Karn"(the ones that gave him the potion to turn him into a warrior) is something that appeared in the classic series which allowed him to control the regeneration, apart from that is a proper regeneration as any other. The numbering change is unaltered as this Doctor in known as the War Doctor, but yes it's actually his ninth body. Apparently the plotline that his regenerations are finished is going to play out in the next Christmas Special, that's why the Doctor was so afraid of his death in Trenzalore, because technically his lifes are done and his going die for good this time. Of course, he won't because we all know he regenerates into Peter Capaldi's Doctor, but it seems this time it will be something different.

 I believe that he is possibly the Time War Doctor, based off what we know so far: 

 He states that whatever he did was done for both peace and sanity, and the Time War has been described as, essentially, the embodiment of madness, its combatants lost to their bloodlust and both sides following the route of total destruction.

 The description of the Comic Con trailer. Apparently, there was a scene showing Daleks fighting and dying through a suspiciously Gallifreyan city, followed by a scene of John Hurt's Doctor surrounded by flames, possibly a reference to his use of The Moment and the burning of Galifrey and Skaro, along with their respective races. The official posters give this implication as well.

 The fact that, despite everything else The Doctor has done over the course of his life, it is this unknown act that rendered him unworthy of the title.

 His outfit - a mix and match of various styles; a Victorian waistcoat, a modern leather jacket (similar to Christopher Eccleston's) and military trousers, boots and bandolier (like what you would see on a World War I soldier), all tattered and dirtied.

 Furthermore, when he first appears at the end of The Name of the Doctor, if you listen carefully from the moment that Clara lands in the cavern to when John Hurt appears, you can hear screaming and explosions in the background, including one loud bang when Hurt appears, perhaps the sounds of the Time War? 

 At any rate, its going to be interesting to find out, particularly with how the Tenth and Eleventh Doctors are going to react.

In what way is the word 'borked' poor manners? It's simply an informal way of saying 'a bit askew' or 'a bit off'.

I can think of a number of possibilities about what this is. Maybe the Secret is an alternate Ninth Doctor who managed to revert to his Eighth and try again (but not through time warping, through actually regaining a regeneration). Maybe he's just a part of the Eighth Doctor's life, but because of what he did the Doctor considers him a separate incarnation. Maybe he's some sort of manifestation like the Valeyard or the Watcher. Maybe he's a clone. Maybe he's a different body the Doctor was given for part of the Time War, like literally an entirely different body, like an extremely advanced form of the Flesh. Just some ideas as to what the Secret could be. He's Time War related, and the Time Lords did a lot of crap during the Time War and showed just what they're capable of. The Doctor too. So it really could be anything.

Yup, and thank you. What I doubt the Secret is is someone upsetting the incarnation count. I don't think he's the Ninth and so Eccelston was actually the Tenth and so on. That would be more of a 'fuck you' to the fans, and supposedly the Day of the Doctor is going to be a "love letter to the fans". I also doubt he's the Valeyard because that happens between the Twelfth and Thirteenth Doctors (so when Peter Capaldi leaves). Plus the Secret seems more anti-hero than villain (granted an anti-hero can be a villain; Batman, Shadow, Punisher) while the Valeyard was outright villainous.

Not really, Murray Gold said it was going to be controversial and possibly split up the fandom, so I can't really say it's going to be such a "love letter".

And Marcus Wilson, the producer, described it as "a love letter to the fans". I'll take the producer over the composer, not to mention I didn't see any mention of what you just said.
