THERE IS A NEWLY DISCOVERED PLANET ‘THAT SHOULD NOT BE THERE’ NO SERIOUSLY
AND I REPEAT:
THIS IS NOT A DRILL WHOVIANS
THIS IS NOT A DRILL
First things first, I’m about to spoil the heck out of “The Day of the Doctor” So if you haven’t seen it yet, I put up a perception filter of an adorable kitten to overt your eyes.
So, I’ve been seeing a lot of people commenting on how now that “Gallifrey Falls No More” the 9th Doctor’s temperament, actions, and even his motivations are now invalid.
Two of the key elements you are forgetting about the Day of the Doctor is
1) The War Doctor fought in the Time War.
2) The Time War was REALLY freaking LONG!
At the end of the prequel episode, The Night of the Doctor, we see 8 regenerate into War Doctor and he is YOUNG.
But when we see him in the Day of the Doctor he has Aged quite a bit.
In fact right before the War Doctor regenerates into the 9th Doctor, he says the same thing that the 1st Doctor says before he regenerates.
Both Doctors basically regenerated from old age.
The 1st Doctor was about 250(ish) years old before his “old body was wearing thin”, which leads me to believe that the Time War went on for at least 100 years. Or however long 100 years is for a Timelord’s body.
Which Brings me to my next point. Gallifrey Stands!
However, that doesn’t mean that all the fighting the War Doctor did for those many many years went unaccounted for. Even before he was about to destroy all the Daleks and Timelords he still didn’t consider himself worth of the name Doctor.
11 even recalls on the last day of the Time War…
And in that battle there was a man with more blood on his hands than any other. A man who would commit a crime that would silence the universe. And that man was me.- 11th Doctor
The 8th Doctor gave in to the Time War. The War Doctor gave up on having any hope left and decided to accept to destroy everything, even if it was cruel.
Even if Gallifrey falls no more the War Doctor still did a lot of terrible things. And those are things a war veteran carries with them, even if the war was won.
Those are my thoughts about the matter, what do you think?
