The Oncoming Storm by Saimain The Oncoming Storm by Saimain
My take on a darker version of the Doctor, the Predator, reminiscent of the Dreamlord or the Valeyard. A man who's been wounded one too many times, whose defenses have finally shattered under the guilt and pain and loneliness of centuries. He has finally turned his back on the universe, becoming the one thing he feared the most. The blood of entire worlds is on his hands, and there is no one left to stop him.

"See? This is what happens when you travel alone for too long." -Amy.


—Edit: quotes from The Name of the Doctor: “The Doctor lives his life in darker hues, day upon day. He will have other names before the end: Storm, the Beast, the Valyard.” “The Cruel Tyrant, the slaughterer of ten billion, the Vessel of the Final Darkness…”

It's hard to imagine 11 so serious and frightening because he's generally so childlike, goofy and carefree. 10 on the other hand could be angry, scary and violent (it's like he was bipolar or something, he always seemed to either be in a state mania or depression. He was definitely the most emotional of all the doctors, but I haven't seen the old series so who knows?)

"There was a goblin, or a... trickster. Or a warrior.
A nameless, terrible thing, soaked in the blood of a billion galaxies.
The most feared being in all the cosmos. And nothing could stop it, or hold it, or... reason with it.
One day it would just drop out of the sky and tear down your world."

Wow.  This is... terrifying.  In the best way possible.

Holy crap! :o  *Hides behind couch*

This is how I imagine some of his enemies picturing him in their minds.
Dalek: The predator of the Daleks will be deployed.
The Doctor: You don't have a predator and even if you did, why would they turn off a force field for you?
Prime Minister: Because you will have no other means of escape.

Hi. Your work is absolutely marvelous. I'm developing an android game based on Dr. Who and would love it if you allow me to use this as the cover art. Please PM me

Thank you so much for asking first, but I will have to say no.  This is a rather dark and disturbing out-of-character scenario that I was just playing with--I would not want the Doctor to be seen like this, or promoted like this for a game.

(And if you are working on a game please note that The Doctor's name is "Doctor."  You cannot abbreviate it with "Dr." because it is not simply a title or a degree!  His name is Doctor.  The title of the series is Doctor Who, and it is a question--the oldest question in the universe.)  :)
