When is the Doctor?
The Eighth Doctor
To explore the universe and help out where he can while ignoring the Time War.
At the start of his eighth incarnation the Doctor is dashing, exuberant and romantic, with a child-like wonder about the universe around him. While his thirst for adventure is infectious, the Doctor has an aura of danger about him that tends to warn potential companions away. Later in his life the Eighth Doctor becomes more apologetic and cynical, refusing to be involved with the Time War and limiting his efforts to help those affected by it.
A renegade Time Lord from Gallifrey, the Eighth Doctor’s life is uncertain due to the constant temporal rewriting caused by the Time War. He travels time and space looking for adventure, although as the Time War drags on he tries his best not to get involved.
