    9th Doctor huh Views: 2298
     Wednesday, January 25 2006 @ 05:03 PM EST
    Since we didn't officially see Eccleston regenerate from Mcgann, how do we know that it is the 9th version of the Doctor. It could be an interesting backstory if there were other regens before Eccleston, and they were vistited by Tennant in future episodes. I know it might limit the amount of future regens, but if the Master could do it, so could the Doctor.
    Tackle that if you dare..

    We had a thread here discussing the canonicity of the various Doctors, including prior regens viewed in The Brain of Morbius. But RTD and the production refer to CE as the ninth Doctor and DT tenth Doctor.

    Potential Spoiler

















    There was a comic strip in DWM, reprised in the graphic novel Endgame, which shows an 8th Doctor regeneration... very interesting story... won't say more as it'll spoil the story for those who haven't read it.

    If you have a local comic shop you may be able to "subscribe" to DWM.

    I do that. I get nice, pristine copies, not ones sent through bulk mail, with the resultant destruction. NO extra charge. I pay the cover price.

    But I don't have the issues Taras mentioned. Taras, could you scan "Endgame" for the benefit of those who don't have access to older DWMs?

    Nate,

    I'm sure that you can. It is published by Panini Comics in the UK. On their site you can subscribe for 47,88 plus shipping (to UK & Eire (Free), Europe (10.12) or Worldwide (20.42)). Or you can get issues at a local comic shop or book store, or from an online vendor like Who NA or the Doctor Who Store. I have been getting my issues as they become available from Who NA. They are usually a week or two behind the issue release in the UK.

    Taras

    Endgame is reprised and available in a recently printed graphic novel of the same name, so it is very available for purchase at this time. If this was a rare issue, or an out of print book, I may consider scanning, but this is not something that is not readily available.

    Taras

    P.S. If I am going to scan something, it's going to go at the end of a long queue of slides/negatives still waiting to be scanned for some friends of mine... I'm already in the dog house because of that.

    Endgame is available as a graphic novel???? Cool! Now where am I going to find that (*goes to scan eBay*)

    I know what you mean about scanning. Don't have one at home, and I have the "Bladerunner Sketchbook" the ultra-rare book! that I'm intending to scan and put up on my web site. I started scanning it months ago... still not done. (It's 96 pages, but I'm lazy about it.)

    Taras,

    Is this the book you mean?

    It seems to be a novel, not a graphic novel... if it's the one, I may put a bid on it.

    Oh, I forgot about the BBC Books novel of the same name...

    WhoNA | Endgame (Graphic Novel)

    The "Endgame" I am refering to is a collection of 8th Doctor comic strips from Doctor Who Magazine.

    And bear in mind that the Time Lords offered the Master a new cycle of regerations if he would help the Doctor's in "The Five Doctors".

    If that's the case, how do we know the good Doctor isn't on his 1st, 2nd, or 93rd set of lives - especially if he would be "The Other" during the time of Rassilon and Omega.

    Chew that one over!! Question

    I think that the main argument against that idea would be the Doctor's age. Some people have commented saying that the Doctor is really speeding through his regenerations in terms of his personal age, and your theory would mean that he has gone through them even faster. I mean, to use your extreme example of a 93rd regeneration as being the 900 year old 9th Doctor, that means he's regenerated once every ten years on average!

    We just don't know, do we?

    First of all, who has ever said that Hartnell was the Doctor's first form? He could have gone through any number of regenerations before hiding out on Earth with Susan.

    Was it ever mentioned on-screen? I don't recall it.

    And yes, we must always remember two things:

    1) The High Council once offered the Master a whole new set of regenerations if he helped the Doctor in "The Five Doctors". This could, of course, have been a bluff. But we just don't know.

    2) People keep forgetting the Doctor did a great favor for a god... the White Guardian.

    ...


    And in fact, in The Brain of Morbius it was implied that he indeed had previous regenerations prior to Hartnell.

    Interesting point. Hmm...

    "So you're my replacements a dandy and a clown!"
    The First Doctor to the Second and Third, The Three Doctors

    "I am the Doctor! The original, you might say!"
    The First Doctor meets the Fifth Doctor's companions, The Five Doctors

    Then again, this has as much and as little weight as the "half-human" and various "alien" claims throughout the classic run...
