Re: Renumber The Doctors?
I'm inclined to believe that Eccleston would've been the third Doctor the War Doctor would have met. The "one who regrets" line would have suited him the most, really, or it could've met "the ones who regret" and I like to think that the whole time fission effect would've been a creation of Bad Wolf, thus making the Ninth Doctor from somewhere at the end of the episode, oddly enough.
Nothing conclusive, but thats what I feel would've happened.
"Spock...?" Kirk said, whispering.
"I am... most pleased to see again, Captain" Spock formally replied.
McCoy shook his head in disgust. "Oh, for crying out loud, Spock. Its been eighty years!"
"Seventy eight point four years, Doctor."
