The Eighth Doctor regenerated into an individual who would logically have been called the Ninth Doctor after he broke his bones falling back into the Doctor's TARDIS from the eyrie on which he had activated the Moment, destroying the Time Lords and ending the Last Great Time War.

Once the regeneration died down, the Doctor, his thirst for life renewed despite the horrors he had witnessed, eagerly felt at his new face before exclaiming his first word: "Blimey!". (PROSE: Doctor Who and the Time War)

Behind the scenes[edit | edit source]

…the Ninth Doctor here could also be interpreted as the Shalka Doctor or the Rowan Atkinson Doctor for the hat trick of alternative Ninth Doctors.(source)
