Well, I was just thinking I should get around to reading this thing finally, but instead I decided to rewatch Name and Day of the Doctor, which was quicker and told me all the same things.

Alien Bodies is a book by BRAVO MILES. It holds the simultaneous honors of having nearly killed Doctor Who in the late 90s and having brought it back to life in the 2000s.


Somethin' fucky's going down on Earth. Eight and his companion visit what turns out to be an auction for the most dangerous weapon in all the cosmos: The Doctor's corpse. It turns out that in the future, Gallifrey and the Doctor will both be destroyed in a terrible war that will ravage all of time and space. No, not that one, the other one. This war will be fought against The Enemy, who as we all know, turned out to be El Sandifer. I ask you, what is Psychochronology if not "A new kind of history"? Case closed.

Since everyone hated the current com Is this dragging on a bit, or is it just me? Oh, excuse me, you can call me the Shift. As a conceptual entity, I can only interact with people by influencing their perceptions, such as yours while trying to read this Plot section. Yes, that means you're missing whatever the second paragraph was, but this is the /who/ wiki, so it's just going to be a bunch of forced memes, gay jokes about major fandom figures, and "reminder that Krotons". I'm really only here to say Bravo Miles for coming up with me, the only idea that's impossible to rip off for the TV show. an Levine.

Amongst those trying to bid on the corpse is a new, totally kewl and edgy villainous group by the name of Faction Paradox, and you know how the rest of that story turns out.


On the one hand, the old guard of nerds hated it because, well, it killed the Doctor. But some people seemed to think it had merit, people like Rusty the Dalek and The Grand Moff Sheev. The War storyline swiftly threatened to engulf the book series, which would have had disastrous repercussions had Mad Larry not accidentally gotten himself erased from Doctor Who by asking Paul Cornell to rape Nicole Kidman. For people who only know of the franchise via the TV show, the mere existence of the War storyline, much less the way it's introduced, is a pretty bizarre revelation. So, next time you wanna blow some tumblroid's mind, tell them that the Time War started in 1997, right after the movie came out.

If they reply that actually, it started in the backup comics in 1980, run away. Alan Moore can do magic, and he smells bad.
