(Disclaimer and AN: Apologies for the slight delay in the release of the first part of this epic crossover, between computer problems and work hunting I was unable to meet the desired deadline of the 23rd and Doctor Who's 49th Anniversary. However, things look to be back on form and the two chapters which make up the beginning of Web of Time should be up on the 30th/31st, with the following parts intended for the 21st of December - if the world doesn't end anyway. After that and barring holiday time I'm hoping to have this series released monthly. However I thought it might be wise to release this introduction to #0, which will see two seperate prologues setting up December's #1. I hope you enjoy this year-long story as it is intended to be my magnum opus and tribute to my two favourite fandoms. All I have left to say is a kind thanks to the numerous writers and actors behind one of the longest running science fiction shows and the best selling comic-line, both of over fifty years. There are too many to mention alongside such names as Verity Lambert, Stan Lee, Warris Hussain, Jack Kirby, all of the Doctors from William Hartnell to Matt Smith and the many talented writers and artists of Marvel Comics like John Byrne, John Romita Sr and Jr, Brian Michael Bendis, John Hickman, Chris Claremont and a lot more. Needless to say that it if wasn't for them and their devotion to the craft of storytelling, this own tale of mind would have never been. I also thanks the writers of the Cvil War Script Book, which provided the inspiration to writer this in a comicscript format, as if Marvel and IDW Comics, the current holders of the rights to Doctor Who comics outside the UK, might have devised this as an epic crossover between the two companies. Thanks and happy reading!)

The Story So Far...
Once electing to leave Gallifrey and his people the Time Lords due to their lack of interest and creed of non-involvement with the rest of the universe, the time traveller known as the Doctor is armed only with his incredible intelligence and when available, his ever-trusty Sonic Screwdriver. Whilst he often travels alone he is immensely fond of the planet Earth and has taken on numerous companions from his favourite planet amongst others. As a Time Lord the Doctor has the ability to regenerate his body when he is likely to die, changing his personality and nature each time but also always being the same, good-hearted and heroic person. Involved in the damaging and personal events of the Last Great Time War between his people and the Daleks, the Doctor is now in his Eleventh Incarnation and the last of his people alive. Recent events which threatened to see the Doctor fated to die for good have forced him back into the shadows, a lone unknown traveller amid the cosmos following the tragic and sudden departure of his last companions, Amy and Rory Williams. I have witnessed his many adventures myself, as he is a force of order and good and for I am... the White Guardian.
It began on Earth in 1939 with the demonstration by Professor Horton of a new form of life – a synthetic life-form which by exposure to oxygen burst into flames – a Human Torch. This being gave rise to an age of heroes and villains who have fought from the battlefields of the Second World War to the Present Day. From the Fantastic Four, Uncanny X-Men and Incredible Hulk, to the Amazing Spider-Man, Invincible Iron Man and Mighty Thor, all of these Heroes both separately and together have sought to protect their world from numerous threats and Villains both on Earth and beyond.. And it my task to watch over all of these struggles - for good and evil - across an almost limitless range of infinite Earths. For this is both the destiny and curse for myself, Uatu – the Watcher.
NOTE: This story takes place in the time between the events of the Doctor Who Episodes Angels in Manhattan and the Christmas Special The Snowmen for the Eleventh Doctor and his TARDIS, and immediately prior to the events of the Avengers Vs X-Men storyline for the Marvel Universe.
