Planet Gallifrey: The Time War

Tuesday, June 26

The Time War


Time Lords vs Daleks... where Time itself is used as a weapon... The entirety of time and space on the verge of being destroyed, and only one man to stop it.

I think I'll leave this up to The Doctor...


What happened?
'My planet's gone. It's dead. It burned... It's just rocks and dust. Before its time... There was a war. A Time War. The Last Great Time War. My people fought a race called the Daleks, for the sake of all creation. And they lost. We lost. Everyone lost. They're all gone now. My family. My friends. Even that sky...'
~~~~~
The Doctor: Your race is dead! You all burned, all of you! Ten million ships on fire! The entire Dalek race wiped out in one second!
Dalek: You lie!
The Doctor: I watched it happen! I made it happen!
Dalek: You destroyed us?!
The Doctor: ... I had no choice.
Dalek: And what of the Time Lords?
The Doctor: Dead. They burned with you. The end of the Last Great Time War.
~~~~~
'I was the only one who could end it. And I tried, I did; I tried everything.'
~~~~~
Rose: The Dalek survived, maybe one of your people did too?
The Doctor: I'd know in here. Feels like there's no one.
~~~~~
The Master: The Time Lords only resurrected me because they knew I'd be the perfect warrior for a Time War. I was there when the Dalek Emperor took control of the Cruciform. I saw it. I ran. I ran so far... because I was so scared.
~~~~~
'I'm a Time Lord. I'm the last of the Time Lords. They're all gone. I'm the only survivor...You think it'll last forever... But it won't.'

The Aftermath
The war had consequences up and down history. Although the name of the Time Lords lived on in legend and myth, the universe was a changed place....

'...when the Time Lords kept their eye on everything, you could pop between realities and be back in time for tea. Then they died, and took it all with them. The walls of reality closed, the world was sealed, and everything became that bit less kind...'

Although The Doctor contemplates using the TARDIS to travel back to before the war and save his race, he knows that this will create a paradox by crossing his own timestream. He also is tempted by the by the power of the Skasis Paradigm which would give him the ability to reorder the universe... 'I could stop the war'... but, as he frequently comments: there was nothing he can do, and he can't change it now...

Those effected by the war
'The Time War raged, invisible to smaller species but devastating to higher forms..'
  • The Nestene Consciousness - it's planet was destoyed in the war.
  • The Gelth - their bodies had been destroyed by the war.
  • The Time Lords - Destroyed, erased from existence.
  • The Daleks - Exterminated.
  • The Doctor - left to live with the consequences of his actions and travel on, the last of his kind...


The Time Lords in the Time War
The Time Lords tried to move Gallifrey to the present day by using the Master, but ultimately failed...

Hi

I'm a bit new to this, but I was wondering what the doctor actually did during the time war. I've read stuff about him blowing up gallifrey and 10000 spaceships, killing the darleks and the timelords, but what actually happened to make him do it and how did he do it?

Jess said...

Hello!
We don't actually know what the Doctor did in the Time War, its never been mentioned (yet!) other than he was responsible for destroying all of Gallifrey and the Daleks.

There is speculation that he blew up the Eye of Harmony (info on that is in the Gallifrey section) and destroyed everything.

Bert Vimes said...

Thanks!
That storyline would make a great film (With a good director).

I wonder if Russell T. Davies thought of that?

Hi- love the site!

Would you be able to add all the stuff about the time war in The Doctor's daughter? It brings tears to my eyes every time I watch it!

"The Daleks - Exterminated."
Gotta love it! :D Though apparently not quite...

Personally, I think he absorbed the time vortex like Rose did, he mentions in Utopia that if a Timelord did that, they would become a vengeful god. So if the doctor had no choice, he could have absorbed the time vortex and used that power to stop everything, only he wouldn't be able to control it, thus everything was burned.

Doctor who fan said...

the doctor is time lord the last of the time lord so it the Master the doctor is not humans because if he is human everyone will call him John smith the doctor is still time lord but The master is time lord not because the master always pretend to be human so Omega need to create his tardis the rani got her tardis the meddling monk has not got tardis yet and the master is looking for his tardis maybe his tardis is somewhere time lords got their own tardis but in doctor who spin off the dalek movie the time war daleks destroys gallifrey alfer the doctor destroys skaro the 8th doctor regenrate into the 9th doctor featuring time lords daleks the doctor regenration skaro gallifrey davros cult of skaro dalek emperor and the master

so when did the time war occur? i mean this in respect to the doctor's life and incarnations. Since early incarnations of the doctor met other timelords and even visited gallifrey, does this mean that the time war occurred at some point between the end of the sylvester mccoy incarnation and the beginning of the christopher eccleston incarnation?

chris said...

ive always thought of it as paul mcgann being the doctor during the time war and that at either some point during, or at the end of the war he regenerated to christoper eccleston

Can i get permission to use your time war pic at the top of that thread? I need it for something.

PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE.

Jess said...

Sure :)
Its not mine and I can't remember where I found it anyway, so go for it!

After I found out that The Time Lords died and took it all with them i was wandering why dont The Doctor Go back and stop the War butnow i understand now

Freema Agyeman said...

During Utopia, Sound of Drums, and Last of the Timelords, I got the impression that the Timelords were losing the war, and decided they had to send the doctor to end it. It sounded to me like the doctor blew up his own planet in order to end the war by killing both Daleks and Timelords. Thats what it sounded like at least, because the Master seemed to be using it against him.

theres a problem with what you sed about the doctor wanting to go back but you sed he contemplated it but couldnt cross his own time stream your wrong its cause the war is time locked no one can go back to it ever he ses it in the episode season 4 episode 12/13 the stolen planet/journey's end

This was written BEFORE the episode aired.

on The End Of Time Rassilon Stated that "The Doctor Still Has The Moment" which i suspect is a bomb thingy

Anonymous said...

From what I've seen and read...after the doctor who u.s. movie where the 7th regenerated into the 8th, some point after that was when the time war occurred. Supposedly, he launched the eye of harmony into one of gallifreys sun to stop both the time lords and daleks and end the war. He then regenerated into the 9th just before meeting rose. That's the way it seems to line up to me at least.

To anyone who is wonderin how the doctor destroyed the daleks and time lords here is a theory put together from quotes from the doctor, episodes old and new and some doctor who comics. The answer is a modified de-mat gun. His 4th incarnation used a de-mat gun against the sontarans in "The Invasion Of Time" which could only be activated by the great key of rassilon. In the doctor who comic "The Forgotten" the doctor remembers his 8th incarnation in the time war trying to retrieve the great key of rassilon and says "the moment i turned the key i doomed them all" but of course knowing TV writers and wankers with no imagination (like russell T. Davies) they'll probably just come up with some bullcrap like the ending to The End Of Time. no one else annoyed by the fact they brought back the time lords for like 5 minutes then killed them off again anyways rant over cheerio :)

Anonymous said...

Dun dun dun,what if he actually destroyed it in the middle of the incarnations,beginning or end,either way,he turned the key opening the Eye of Harmony and the Eye of Harmony stopped the time war,could that count?

RedXIII_Nanaki said...

Its kind of obvious how the doctor ended the time war... he took in the energy of the tardais and became "like a god" as master puts it while he is explaining to master how he stopped the time war. in season 3 episode 13 of the reboot. and in the episode before that the doctor says what happens when a timelord takes in the energy of the tardis. "He becomes a god a vengeful god" suggesting that it was himself that became this "vengeful god".

Anonymous said...

I kind of want to think that the time war hasn't even happened yet in the doctors time line that's why we haven't heard to much detail about it maybe Matt smiths doctor or a later regeneration has to end the war and because the war is time locked that's why you hear about it from the 9th doctor on???! Ponder that why don't you

One more issue is that video gaming has become one of the all-time biggest forms of
excitement for people spanning various ages.
Kids play video games, and also adults do, too. The XBox 360 is one of the favorite video games systems for individuals
that love to have a lot of activities available to them, along with who like to play live with
other individuals all over the world. Thank you for sharing your thinking.

I have realized that in video cameras, specialized detectors help to maintain focus automatically.
Those sensors of some digital cameras change in contrast, while others work with a beam involving infra-red (IR) light, especially in low
lighting. Higher specs cameras occasionally use a mix of both systems
and probably have Face Priority AF where the dslr camera can 'See' a face as you concentrate only in that.
Many thanks for sharing your thinking on this web
