The Doctor held off their attacks to find that it was Flora Millrace that had sent them, believing that by killing him it would stop Isaac 's composition from destroying more of the universe.
The Doctor offered to stop Isaac's music from being invented altogether, and allowed Flora to take Isaac's place on a fishing trip the Doctor once had with him in his sixth incarnation. Wondering if he was nearing the end of his life, the Doctor founded the Institute of Time with fellow time travellers. The Doctor then took a trip to the end of the universe to see if the Institute still existed.
He found that the Institute was in ruins and all of his friends had committed suicide. He encountered his first incarnation in the ruins who told him to not give up and to keep on travelling; this renewed the Doctor's spirits and he found a new sense of adventure. The Doctor returned to one of his houses in search of his copy of Jane Eyre and found that a young painter called Josie Day had taken up residence there. They were soon interrupted by a local called Mrs Fellowes , who informed them that Josie's pictures had come to life and were attacking the village.
The Doctor and Josie embrace. The trio left the Doctor's house and found that Josie's paintings were rounding up the locals. The Doctor told Josie to create an ending to the story as he was captured by a pair of Witherkins. Josie then ran back to the house and drew a picture of the Doctor. The picture promptly came to life and destroyed the old telepathic circuit causing the problem, returning the paintings to their original state. The Doctor resumed his search for Jane Eyre and found an old "to do list" inside.
The Doctor invited Josie to travel with him and set off towards the first location on the list: Lumin's World. On Lumin's World, the Doctor and Josie found themselves in the middle of a war zone. Josie was hit by a crystal fragment which fell from the sky. They were captured by the Calaxi and taken inside one of their buildings. The Calaxi told them that it was the Spherions attacking their world and that the crystal that hit Josie would spread across her body and turn her into a Spherion. The Doctor left the building and activated a satellite dish in order to communicate with the Spherions.
He learned that the Spherions had no idea that they were attacking living organisms, and were only attempting to breed. The Spherions ceased their attack and shattered the crystal on Josie. The duo then headed to Victorian England. The two travelled to Edinburgh in and went to see a magic show hosted by a man called Silversmith.
However the Doctor instantly recognized that Silversmith's magic trick involving volunteers and two mirrors wasn't what it seemed, and the two learned that it was actually a portal to a mirror universe and Silversmith was swapping people with their mirror counterparts. Josie and the Doctor succeeded in saving all the victims and trapped Silversmith back in his own reality. Travelling to Briarwood house in , the Doctor and Josie found the house to be attacked by the Nixi.
The Doctor helped Bertie , a young boy living in the house, to fulfil his family's legacy in placing the Nixi and their king into a deep sleep for another thousand years. The Doctor and Josie travelled to a Bakri Resurrection Barge in the far future, where the synthetic bodies created for deceased humans began to grow their own conscious and rebelled against the humans. There Josie encountered a woman named Lady Josephine, who forced her to tell the Doctor of who she really was. It turned out that Josie was actually a portrait of Lady Josephine, brought to life by animae particles and who was sold after an auction following Lady Josephine's death, before she was brought back in a synthetic body.
The Doctor accepted Josie's identity as a sentient portrait and called her his friend.
Together they helped the synthetic humans overthrow their masters, including Lady Josephine. The Doctor called upon the Shadow Proclamation to deal with the Bakri. The Doctor took Josie back to his house in Wales where Josie recounted the remainder of her story to him, explaining how she was rescued by a future incarnation of the Doctor and his current companion. The Doctor was happy to let Josie continue her life and offered for her to travel with him once more.
Josie accepted the Doctor's offer to take a trip to Epsilon Eridani for egg and chips. Arriving in Greenwich , , the Doctor discovered a Omsonii captured on board a British naval ship. Taking control of the situation, the Doctor returned the Omsonii to its ship in orbit. Along with his seven previous incarnations, the Doctor and Josie became trapped in the Void when it began to attack and devour the universe.

Working with his other selves, the Doctor and Josie were able to escape when the other Doctors formed a dimensional bridge. While his ninth, tenth and twelfth incarnations used a Bowship to fly into the Void and solve the problem, the Doctor and Josie helped a number of his future companions fend of possessed victims of the Type 1 TARDIS within the Void, until the future Doctors joined with their other incarnations to end the threat. The Doctor was travelling with Sheena when he first encountered the Time War.
The Doctor and Sheena landed on the starship Theseus in port. Due to damage to time caused by the Time War, the Theseus ' purpose from being a luxury cruise liner was changed into a ship housing refugees, running from the Time War. The Doctor and Sheena discovered that members of the crew and refugees were sacrificing themselves to creatures that lived in space to allow the Theseus to travel through that section of space without being attacking by the creatures.
Damage to the timeline caused by the Time War continued, and Sheena's personal history changed numerous times, becoming Emma, then Louise, before being wiped from history altogether. This caused the Doctor and everyone else to completely forget about her. Soon after, a Time Lord ship fleeing from Dalek attack ships crashed into the Theseus , and a Time Lord, Aymor , exited it, claiming to be looking for a "traitor", before proclaiming "You! The crash allowed the Daleks to enter the ship, where they proceeded to kill all passengers and crew.
He then led the group to a Dalek Time ship, and got them to enter it and flew off the Theseus. The ship was too badly damaged however, and it fell down to the planet below. When another time distortion happened, he got the people in the ship. Using the readings in the ship, he noticed that the planet was in a state of temporal flux. He managed to convince Dal to help him and his compatriots to get to a safe zone. When Jefferson died shortly after he was taken, the Doctor diagnosed he died because of chronal displacement. He tried to convince Dal that he was different to the Daleks.
To help the others survive, he left and had the local fauna follow him. Bliss eventually found him in the safe zone, protected. When Ollistra found him, he found it appalling when she destroyed a whole ecosystem for a small victory. The Doctor was then taken to a training camp. The Doctor, against his will, was trained by Harlan. He spent his first night in the conscription training inspecting the perimeter.
In one of the weapon building classes, he didn't cooperate so Veeda was punished in his place. He spent his time trying to decrypt the gate to reach Bliss. During target practice, the Doctor used his sonic screwdriver to destroy all the targets and started a food fight in the mess hall to inspire rebellion.
As punishment, he was placed in solitary confinement for 7 days. He wanted to convince the Time Lords to stop the war as he saw it was pointless. When the Daleks attacked, he tried to convince the recruits to escape. Ollistra threatened to kill him as she thought his successor would help in the war. The Daleks intervened, having gained access to the compound.
He wanted to know why the Daleks were keen to follow him and why Ollistra was not after him. Ollistra revealed he had a weapon on board Quarren. He worked out that Quarren had used a Chameleon Arch to hide his true identity. The Daleks followed him to the planet he crashed on. He was left behind on the planet when Ollistra escaped. He survived when Quarren caused the planet to collapse. Attempting to take Bliss home to the planet Derilobia , the Doctor discovered that the planet's history had been changed so that it was now 'dedicated' to manufacturing weapons for the Time Lords, Bliss only protected from the change because she was in the TARDIS.
The Doctor soon discovered that the apparent Dalek attack on Derilobia had been faked by the Time Lord soldier Carvil , so dedicated to destroying the Daleks that he could even justify destroying an innocent planet, even if he argued that the Daleks would have attacked it eventually. The Doctor destroyed the weapons factory, feeling that the moral cost of such a victory wouldn't be worth it, but was unable to restore its history.
While on holiday with Bliss, the Doctor was shocked to meet the Twelve , the latest incarnation of the notorious Time Lord criminal, now working with the Time Lords with the aid of a neural inhibitor to stabilise her past selves. She recruited the Doctor to investigate the mystery of an Ogron that appeared to be a future version of the Doctor, even possessing his DNA and some of his brain patterns. The Doctor, Bliss and the Twelve determined that this Ogron was part of a Dalek experiment to create soldiers more resistant to dangerous temporal conditions, witnessing the events of its creation before destroying the experiment.
Eventually the Doctor became fearful that he would lose everything he held dear in joining the war. Travelling to a Velyshaan museum dedicated to the Dalek Wars , he met Kalendorf , an old soldier who had fought in the Dalek Wars. There, he and Kalendorf destroyed a lone Dalek, but not before it had killed a child. Driven into a decision, the Doctor set off, his mind made up.
PROSE : The Third Wise Man However, he quickly found that because of the nature of the Time War, with timelines shifting about frequently, the people he rescued would sometimes end up never being born, leaving him no one to save. With the help of a Malmooth named Chantir , he managed to escape the prison guards and find the key. The Doctor hoped that he would not have to use the key, but if he did he planned to use it to create a modified De-mat Gun that could bring an end to the war. The Doctor experienced a memory wipe shortly after obtaining the Key, which the Tenth Doctor attributed to using the modified De-mat Gun.
The Doctor finds a hypercube from Susan Foreman. The Doctor found himself in a time loop orbiting Earth on Christmas Eve , He eventually found a hypercube sent by Susan, which had taken centuries to get to him. Susan told him of her accomplishments, and the birth of her son, Alex. The message filled the Doctor with hope, in such a dark time of his life. On a distant planet, the Doctor learned of the destruction of a hospital ship named after the home planet of its owner. Suspecting that this ship was the Traken , controlled by his old companion Nyssa , the Doctor, not wanting to learn any more for definite for risk of making the destruction a fixed point in time , travelled back in time a few months so that he could go undercover on the Traken as Doctor Foster, remaining with his old companion until the Traken was nearly destroyed by a Time Lord agent who was attempting to force a planet near Gallifrey to directly ally with the Time Lords in the War.
Although the Doctor never directly identified himself to Nyssa, as he walked away after exposing the agent, Nyssa mused that 'her' Doctor would never have kissed her on the cheek as he did in that moment. The Doctor landed on Rontan 9 in search of mercury to find that the planet had also been affected by the Dalek weapon. The Doctor found a group of scientists, some of which regressed into monsters from the time distortions on the planet.
Whilst fleeing from the monsters, the Doctor found some mercury. His body disfigured by the crash, the Doctor stumbled outside to a villa where he re-encountered Mary Shelley. Whilst crying out the names of past companions, Shelley attempted to look after the Doctor. Whilst working for the Time Lords to save a group of sentient suns from falling into another universe during a "storm in heaven", the Doctor and his TARDIS crash-landed on one of the many planets he was trying to save.
The avian natives of the planet took him from his ship and explained to him that their leader was dying. The Doctor operated on their leader with his sonic screwdriver and told him that even though he would save him now, his planet would fall into another universe and they would die anyway. Responding to a distress signal from a research facility, the Doctor learned that the Time Lords, represented by Cardinal Ollistra , were funding research by Doctor Eva Morrison to alter the Vashta Nerada for use in military or medical purposes.
He became angry when the Time Lords brought the Time War into real time above the planet Drakkis and pleaded with them not to. Once the Time War destroyed its beauty and rewrote time, he rescued Sarana Teel from some quicksand before the Sontaran Jask arrived on the planet. Jask later told him about Stenk 's cowardice and his planned invasion of Drakkis. The Doctor agreed to work with Jask to stop him.
Having exposed Stenk's past betrayal of his fleet, the Doctor was able to convince Jask to take command of the Sontaran fleet above Drakkis and leave the planet in peace. However, he was forced to admit to Sarana that the damage the Time War had done to Drakkis' history meant that any peace would only be temporary, and Sarana ordered him to leave, angry at the role his people had played in her planet's destruction. Several hypercubes were sent to her, which the Doctor was able to remove by distracting Susan with various obstacles. Susan saw past the distractions and worked out what her grandfather was up to.
She received the message, and decided to join the fight, much to Doctor's dismay. A group called the Rulers of the Universe used knowledge from River Song 's diary to lure the Doctor to their ship in order to get him to help them take control of a Sanukuma spore ship. Their plan backfired when the Sanukuma themselves also arrived.
Using a chronon mine he recovered from the war, the Doctor managed to defeat them by banishing them to the early years of the universe while he escaped using a "souvenir" pendant of the type carried by Gallifreyan shock troops , and with the help of River, also defeated the Rulers. River contacted him only remotely, so as not to reveal her true identity to him. The Eighth Doctor's final moments. TV : The Night of the Doctor. Answering the call with glee, the Doctor found that there was no way to deflect the ship or save it with a tractor beam , and was forced to board the ship to manually retrieve the sole life form detected.
Unable to open it with his sonic screwdriver, the Doctor pleaded with Cass to come with him, until the ship hit the surface of Karn and erupted into a fireball. The Doctor died in the crash, but was revived temporarily by Ohila and the Sisterhood of Karn , and was told he had under four minutes to live.
Ohila offered him a series of different Elixirs that would allow him to control his regeneration so he could become the person he needed to be to end the Time War, but the Doctor refused to take part in the war, until the Sisterhood showed him the lifeless body of Cass, who was "beyond even [their] help". Though he continued to believe he could have saved her and shown her the universe, Ohila pointed out to the Doctor the universe was "very nearly over" due to the damage the Time War done had done. Deciding there was no longer a need for the Doctor in the universe, the Doctor accepted the Sisterhood's help, asking them to make him a warrior.
Ohila then handed him a formula she had specially prepared for that purpose. Before ingesting what he thought was a chalice containing the Elixir of Life TV : The Night of the Doctor that in reality was just dry ice and lemonade , PROSE : The Day of the Doctor the Doctor commanded the sisters to get out of the room, horribly torn apart by what he was about to do. Beginning a painful regeneration, the Doctor gasped out his last breaths in convulsions that made him keel over to the ground as he regenerated into his next incarnation.
The Eighth Doctor strains against the Sin-Eater. When the Ninth Doctor 's Sin-Eater became conscious due to the Doctor's telepathic nature, it mutated to show the Eighth Doctor's face, among other incarnations, straining against its body. The Eighth Doctor helps face Es'Cartrss. During many failed attempts to duplicate the Tenth Doctor , defective copies of all his past incarnations were created instead, including the Eighth Doctor. After the Eleventh Doctor was accused of committing deadly crimes against the Overcast , he brooded in the TARDIS for two days, imagining all his previous numbered incarnations, including the Eighth Doctor, interrogating him over the crimes.
When he offered the rationale that he always left things better than he found them, they all turned and left him in disgust and disgrace. When the Eleventh Doctor was attacked by the Then and the Now on Lujhimene , the Eighth Doctor was among the faces seen as the Doctor's timeline was almost destroyed.
The Eighth Doctor appears in the T'keyn Nexus. When the Eleventh Doctor entered into the T'keyn Nexus in order to defend himself, Matrix projections of his previous incarnations, including the Eighth Doctor, appeared inside it to defend themselves as well. When auditor Sondrah brought up the Time War , the Eighth Doctor refused to be labelled as the cause of the conflict, and also took it upon himself to defend the War Doctor 's actions, as the war incarnation opted to remain silent. When the Eleventh Doctor began to deduce Sondrah's true identity, the past Doctors faded away as Oscar Wilde interfered with the Nexus.
After saving Gallifrey from the Moment at the conclusion of the Last Great Time War , the Eleventh Doctor dreamed of himself standing with all his past incarnation, including the Eighth Doctor, as he thought about his search for Gallifrey. When he was exposed to energy from a time storm , the Twelfth Doctor degenerated through all of his previous incarnations, including the Eighth Doctor. There were several alternate versions of the Eighth Doctor who lived vastly defferent lives to the one he led.
For instance there was: Doc Gallifrey , who was a gun using protector of a town called Vortex City ; Joe Smith , who ran his own detective agency; a wizard named Quiquaequod ; Theta Stigma , who was still close friends with the Rani and appeared to regularly go to her for psychiatric advice; an incredibly violent cyborg who had a sonic weapon for a right arm; and one where he was an anthropomorphic cartoon cat.
In one alternative timeline , the Seventh Doctor was shot by Nazis in Germany in , and had his body taken into custody. In this role, he was able to manipulate Klein's analysis of the TARDIS so that she would believe she had come up with the idea to go back in time and talk to the Doctor while he was still in Colditz, allowing his younger self to learn about how history would be changed and take action to correct it. In another alternative timeline, the Eighth Doctor settled down in San Francisco and eventually got married.
The Doctor kisses Grace goodbye. Due to his regeneration "[shaking] up his molecules so comprehensively that certain aspects of his character had come to the fore that had previously been buried so deeply within him they had seemed virtually nonexistent", PROSE : The Bodysnatchers the Eight Doctor was a romantic at heart, TV : Doctor Who though he thought it an "unpleasant problem" to fall in love with humans. PROSE : Legacy of the Daleks It was during his eighth incarnation that the Doctor began feeling a desire for romance — "the excitement of being close to someone, the need to exchange ideas on a more personal level, to be able to tell someone what you really believe".
While he told I. Although uncomfortable with Charley's "yearning" for him, the Doctor did later admit to loving her, but then told her that they couldn't pursue a romantic relationship, opting to remain friends instead. The Eighth Doctor was full of spirit and the joy of life, and showcased, on multiple occasions, his love for humanity, especially admiring how they "always [saw] patterns in things that [weren't] there," TV : Doctor Who and how they were "one of the most adaptable, versatile, [and] adventurous species in the galaxy", PROSE : Halflife but also was aware that some were "barbarians" PROSE : Dreamstone Moon who "never lost their inability to learn from their mistakes", PROSE : Halflife degrading them for "heading towards [an Ice Warrior ] ship like moths to the flame", PROSE : The Dying Days and found a police officer 's refusal to believe him as "typical".
He was also something of a thrill-seeker, hitting the fire alarm of the ITAR building simply to "liven things up" during his and Grace's escape, TV : Doctor Who sneaking into the Gorolith 's sphere, even after he pointed out that he didn't need too, COMIC : Ophidius and once indulged in multiple adventures simultaneously for the sheer fun of it.
The Doctor vents his anger towards Destrii. In contrast to his scheming predecessor, the Eighth Doctor could not stay on one train of thought for more than a few seconds, getting distracted by the comfort of his new shoes when recalling his childhood, TV : Doctor Who reading books too fast to realise what he was reading, PROSE : The Scarlet Empress going days without eating due to his forgetfulness, PROSE : Camera Obscura and could easily begin rambling when in conversation, going into soliloquies without noticing.
The Eighth Doctor believed that "the universe [hung] [on] such a fragile thread of coincidences " that it was "useless to meddle with it", unless the meddler was a Time Lord, TV : Doctor Who but he later confided in Grace that even he shouldn't meddle in the affairs of others. The Doctor "wouldn't have minded being a bus conductor", PROSE : The Scarlet Empress and, when looking up at the sky, saw rocket trails and animal shapes in the clouds. PROSE : To the Slaughter He prided himself on "being able to find a quick fix, [and] an easy solution to any problem", and would fall into despair when he couldn't help someone.
The Doctor reluctantly orchestrates an Ice Warrior 's demise. COMIC : The Way of All Flesh He killed a pair of vampires, commentating on how melodramatic it was, aware that he couldn't try anything less fatal due to the vampires' strength and healing abilities. However, Romana noted the regret in his eyes, PROSE : The Eight Doctors and the Doctor later remarked that he killed them due to "[not] [knowing] [himself] well enough at the time" to know different.
He later talked Anton la Serre into death for his part in the deaths on the Dreamstone Moon , PROSE : Dreamstone Moon and killed Ed Hill with a gun to prevent the imminent destruction of the Earth, and in part to save Fitz Kreiner from having to bear the responsibility of killing him. The Doctor's mental health was somewhat questionable; while he usually acted like an eccentric gentleman, he also had moments of certifiable insanity, with him describing himself as an "ethnomethodologist", PROSE : The Scarlet Empress and Compassion noting that he was "prone to flights of fancy".
Both the Doctor and Fitz shared a worrying moment when they realised the Doctor seemed to be "unbalanced" to the point of schizophrenia. He was not against theft if he saw it in his power to return what he stole, PROSE : The Novel of the Film but would avoid stealing if he thought it would cause more trouble than it would solve. The Doctor still felt regret for giving Katarina hope after taking her away from her home, only for her to be killed shortly afterwards.
Though it was thought [ who? PROSE : Fear Itself Once he adopted Miranda Dawkins , he decided to improve his situation in order to be able to provide for her, such as working as a business consultant and taking up beekeeping. Seeing it as the only way for him to continue righting wrongs, the Doctor decided to become "Earth's Champion" and planned to marry Juliette Vierge in a symbolic ceremony in which he would root himself on Earth, until Juliette was lured away by Sabbath. After the loss of his second heart to Sabbath, the Doctor became an even more darker, though more humane person.
Though he vowed that he would never travel alone again as he did not want to forget how precious life was after seeing his predecessor's manipulative nature with disdain, AUDIO : The Resurrection of Mars after the deaths of his great-grandson, Alex Campbell , and his companions, Tamsin Drew and Lucie Miller , at the hands of the Daleks , the Doctor decided to travel on his own to limit the deaths that came in his wake. Towards the end of his life, the Doctor began to reminisce about his adventures with previous companions.
The Eighth Doctor remembered his first incarnation as a "fierce old man", his second incarnation as a "gentle little fellow who had sacrificed his own freedom so that others might be free", his third incarnation as an "elegant dandy struggling bitterly against the chains of his exile but unable to resist defending the planet that had become his prison", and his fourth incarnation as a "casual bohemian" who "dared to take on the evil that stalk[ed] the dark". The Eighth Doctor had no love for his third incarnation , describing him to Josie Day as having "no appreciation of art," and that he "spent all his time taking things apart and leaving bits lying about," concluding that Josie wouldn't like him.
He viewed his seventh incarnation as "terrible old duffer who wouldn't tell [anyone] what was going on, would shout [at] [someone] as soon as look at [them], would expect [his companions] to be quiet and do what [he] said, and be there to untie [him] in cellars and scream out when [they] saw danger heading [their] way". PROSE : The Scarlet Empress He also distastefully looked at his immediate predecessor as being "a man with the master plan" working for the "greater good" under the belief of the ends justifying the means, unfavourably comparing him to the Monk in that regard.
Viewing them as "the worst thing [one] [could] possibly imagine," the Doctor saw the Daleks as "cold, ruthless killers", COMIC : Fire and Brimstone believing that they "[had] no interest in anything but conquest and war," with "art, decoration, poetry, music all [being] irrelevant to them. Charley referred to the Eighth Doctor as "an unbelievable, impossible, marvellous man. Jacob Hynes believed that, "despite his weird nineteenth-century costume, [the Doctor] had the air of a man from the Golden Age ". AUDIO : Scherzo Unafraid to die due to having "died many times before", the Doctor could think of no better epitaph than to have inspired others to hold back death and go forward in all their beliefs.
The Eighth Doctor explodes with anger as he prepares to regenerate into the antithesis of his moral code. When the Eighth Doctor met his demise, he had been thoroughly broken by the circumstances of his travels and the breakout of the Time War, to the point that he decided to remain onboard a crashing spaceship, pleading with Cass to put aside her fear and hatred of the Time Lords for him to save her.
This ultimately ended in failure, and the Doctor died in the crash, having lost the will to regenerate until the Sisterhood of Karn temporarily restored him to life. Though he continued to refuse joining the Time War, seeing Cass's lifeless body caused the Doctor to finally lose all hope, claim the deceased Cass's bandolier and abandon the title of "Doctor" with extreme disparity after being coaxed by Ohila to embrace his regeneration into a warrior, expressing bitter delight when informed the change would hurt.
He would often utter, "blazes", when annoyed or surprised. He would sing or hum to himself when traveling to a location, or to simply relax himself. The Doctor could be literal minded at times, TV : Doctor Who and would often explain or answer a rhetorical question asked to him. While he mostly abandoned his predecessor's manipulative tendencies, AUDIO : The Resurrection of Mars the Doctor possessed the cunning to lead his foes into a battlefield of his choosing, tricking the Threshold into lowering their guard by letting them think he had regenerated by switching places with Shayde , COMIC : Wormwood turning Andrelina Hastoff 's minions against each other with a few choice words, COMIC : The Autonomy Bug and stalling his execution by the Ophidians so a servicer drone he had left in the anti-gravity regulator could disable their ship, allowing him to escape.
He once boasted the ability to "break a human in two". The Eighth Doctor could play the piano , PROSE : Casualties of War the violin , harpsichord , flute , transverse cello , harp , banjo , theremin , and wobbleboard , and, while he could play anything composed by somebody else, he was unable to improvise music. The Doctor could deduce his location by studying his surroundings, AUDIO : Mary's Story and how fast a space ship was traveling by feeling its vibrations.
Being a Time Lord, the Doctor could will his respiration, heartbeat, brain activity, lindal gland, and reflex response systems to shut down, though he would require a few days to fully recover to full strength afterwards. The Doctor shortly after his regeneration. According to Grace Holloway , the Eighth Doctor looked like a man in his mid-thirties. PROSE : The Novel of the Film Bernice Summerfield thought "his long face was angular, with a jutting chin and aristocratic nose, but it was softened by a mass of dark brown hair that swept back down all the way from his high forehead to his broad shoulders".
The Doctor had blue eyes after he regenerated. The Doctor during the Time War. As the Time War reached its height, the Doctor's face showed prominent crow's feet and some wrinkling as a result of his fatigue. Carolyn McConnell described the Eighth Doctor as "tall, dark, [and] handsome". The First Doctor described his eighth incarnation as the "younger, handsome one, with hair dangling to his shoulders".
The Doctor's shorter hair. The Doctor had long, wavy hair after his regeneration, TV : Doctor Who but, after falling in the ocean at Dunkirk , he had his wavy hair cut short. The Doctor's original jacket. After walking around with a white sheet following his regeneration, the Doctor stole a Wild Bill Hickok costume from Ted 's locker at Walker General Hospital. Though he discarded the hat and gunbelt, he kept the long bottle-green velvet frockcoat, high collared white dress shirt, floppy battleship grey cravat with a bronze pin, greyish-green high-waist trousers, and six buttoned silky waistcoat with a golden pocket watch.
After walking around the hospital barefoot, he was given a pair of black ankle-high dress shoes by Grace Holloway that originally belonged to her ex-boyfriend, Brian.
Immediately following the War in Heaven , the Doctor began to wear a shirt and trousers, but felt that they did not suit him, and soon changed back into his original clothes. After ruining his clothes during World War I , the Doctor began wearing a white t-shirt under a dark blue leather peacoat with three golden buttons, with blue jeans and sandy-brown trainers.
