Every Doctor Who fan in the world has heard of the Great Time War—the war in which the Eighth Doctor (Paul McGann) fought against the Daleks, which then gave birth to a regenerated Ninth Doctor (Christopher Eccleston). Ever since the series returned in 2005, we've heard about it. A lot. Now one fan has decided to bring it to us: and it looks pretty awesome.
Our first look at Time War comes in the form of two awesome fan-made teaser trailers made by TARDISELLIOT Productions by using stock footage from various Doctor Who episodes from the first four seasons—particularly from the 1996 Doctor Who TV movie and the first Who season with Christopher Eccleston, as well as stock footage from actress Laila Ward as Romana, and mashing them up together: et voilà!
Time War stars Paul McGann as the Eighth Doctor, Lalla Ward as Romana, Timothy Dalton as Rassilon (from "The End of Time") and Christopher Eccleston as the Ninth Doctor.
This is the fan-made episode's plot line on the official Facebook Page :
The Time War enters its final days. Both the Timelords and the Daleks will stop at nothing for total supremacy over time.
The Doctor will make a decision that will change the whole universe forever.
Have a look at the two cool videos in order to whet your appetites for what's to come in Time War:
Time War, the full film, is scheduled to be released in 2013, just in time for Doctor Who's big whopping 50th anniversary, and will use voice actors to portray the Eight and Nine Time Lords, played by McGann and Eccleston, respectively.
How do you like those two teaser trailers? At least someone is finally telling the long-awaited tale, so move over, Russell T Davies and Steven Moffat!
