Default Doctor Who in The Far Future

Okay, I know there's been a thread about The Doctor in the 40K 'verse before, but that sort of died out. Anyway, What major events could the doctor have witnessed in the 40K 'verse, or played a key part in?

the vaxhillian genocide, he could have been a part of that, as in he was killed there!

I see no reason that he couldn't be in the 40k universe, he's been in far stranger and crueler situations before. If you're trying to insert the Dr.Who lore into 40k it should be doable. The dark laughter of thirsting gods may be new schtick but one could interchange the "old ones" with the Gallifreyans and the Necrotyr with the Daleks without too much of a fuss.

Part of the magic of the Doctor is that he has no "home" apart from the Tardis and no "family" apart from his companions, this essentially gives him the freedom to be anywhere at any time. It's one of the few fandoms where it isn't too much of a stretch to stick him into Shakespeare and Star Wars with equal gusto.

tbh, why not revive the old thread? why start another thread about Dr. who when the old one died off? i really don't see a point in this thread, especially when the topic has already been covered...

Doctor Who would have time-locked the Horus Heresy and be done with it.

Personally I believe that someone who loves the good side of humanity, like the Doctor, would probably avoid the 40k time period all together. Remember, during this time, humanity is at its absolute worst. I think that the Doctor would loath the 40k time period, given how humanity and the rest of the Milky Way is at this time. As they say at the beginning of every 40k BL novel;
To be a man in such times is to be one amongst untold billions. It is to live in the cruellest and most bloody regime imaginable. These are the tales of those times. Forget the power of technology and science, for so much has been forgotten, never to be relearned. Forget the promise of progress and understanding, for in the grim dark future there is only war. There is no peace amongst the stars, only an eternity of carnage and slaughter, and the laughter of thirsting gods.
It's not a time the Doctor would likely willingly go, especially post-Time War Doctor, who lived through the Hell that war became. It would be about as close as the Doctor could get to reliving the War.

Maybe Doctor Who created the Ordo Chronos? ;)

"You do not need to look to the stars to find the greatest obstacle this Conclave faces, my brothers. Simply gaze around this room and you will find such a sea of discord as to make your foes cackle with glee." - Inquisitor Eistus Gracker in address to the Calixian Conclave

"There are dark pitted corners of our universe that have bred the most unfathomable horrors and blasphemies that would burn and blind the sanest man. Fortunately sanity has never been a prerequisite of membership in the Holy Ordos." - Inquisitor Silas Marr

The good doctor would shit his pants and run back to his police box.
