Finally the Doctors biggest secret (apart from his name) is revealed! The War Doctor to me has to be the bravest of them all. He has to make the ultimate choice to save his people and end the Time War…and succeeds! Gallifrey Falls, No More.

Awarded the longest running Sci Fi TV series in history (or throughout space and time) 2013 marked 50 years of Doctor Who.

Revealed in the season finale of season 7 (The Name of the Doctor) Sir John Hurt is the missing link between the eighth Doctor (Paul McGann) and the Ninth Doctor (Christopher Eccleston).

Even though he considered this version of himself as a Warrior and not the Doctor, The War Doctor was actually more the Doctor than many of his predecessors and it took the help of his future selves to show him that.

The Doctors embark on their greatest adventure for the 50th anniversary special. In the 21st century, something terrible is awakening in London’s National Gallery; in 1562, a murderous plot is afoot in Elizabethan England; and somewhere in space an ancient battle reaches its devastating conclusion. All of reality is at stake as the Doctor’s own dangerous past comes back to haunt him.

For goodness sake, Gallifrey Stands
