That Time On Doctor Who – Week 99

It’s the Doctor…but probably not the one you were expecting!

Two years and a week ago, fans of the Eighth Doctor got an excellent 50th Anniversary surprise on the interwebs!  Although Paul McGann’s Eighth Doctor has more adventures than any other Doctor when you count up all the novels, audios, and the like, he only got to visually play the part for one night in  Doctor Who – The Movie back in 1996.  This was rectified by Steven Moffat with The Night of The Doctor, released via the web (and eventually on DVD) on November 14, 2013.  Clocking in at just about eight minutes long, the minisode showed us what the Eighth Doctor was like towards the end of his incarnation, and also showed us his regeneration into The War Doctor (John Hurt).  

To celebrate The Night of the Doctor‘s two year anniversary, That Time On Doctor Who by Brent Kincade revisits those very special and bittersweet eight additional minutes of the Eighth Doctor…

FUN WHO FACT:  The chalice used by the Eighth Doctor in “The Night of the Doctor” was reused by Peter Capaldi (the 12th Doctor) in a minisode called “The Doctor’s Meditation”.  When the chalice was spotted in photos from the set of the minisode, many fans speculated that the Doctor might return to Karn!  They were wrong.

About the author

Brent Kincade

Brent Kincade was born under the sign of Pertwee and has often wondered if there was an alternate universe where Aquaman was instead called Waterhombre. He also spends a fair amount of his waking life patiently waiting for friends to mention a Thunderdome so he can roll his eyes and plead, "Can't we just get BEYOND Thunderdome??" (Six times, thus far.)

His first comic book was Spidey Super Stories #4 in 1974, his first Star Trek episode was "City On The Edge of Forever" in 1975, his first Doctor Who was "The Visitation" in 1984.

Once when he was young, he stashed his vinyl Halloween Spider-Man costume in the neighbor lady's shrubs and was later caught red-handed, crawling into the shrubs to change into costume because he had, "Heard a cry for help".

He's a father, an artist, a graphic designer, a cartoonist, and usually pretty handy in a pinch. Brent is the creator of #ThatTimeOnDrWho, #ThatTimeOnStarTrek, #ThatTimeOnStarWars and co-creator of "The Magic Cantina". Brent requests the story of his days be co-written by Harlan Ellison, Steven Moffat and Neil Gaiman, drawn by John Romita, scored by Ben Folds and riffed on by the fine folks at Mystery Science Theater 3000.
