This Doctor Who/Warcraft mashup tries to explain WoW's confusing story

Warlords of Draenor, World of Warcraft's new expansion, takes players to back in time to an alternate reality. No wait, alternate timeline. Maybe? Either way some fans are a bit confused - except for youtuber Scott Leyes, who's taken to parody by recreating a pivotal scene from The Day of The Doctor.

The scene in question of course, is the climax of the 50th Anniversary where all 13 incarnations of The Doctor join forces to save Gallifrey - but this time The Doctor has become 'The Warchief', and they're all banding together to save Draenor, the world Warcraft's expansion is taking place on. It's actually surprising how close the events of the Time War seem to fit with the wibbly wobbly, timey wimey-ness of Blizzard's latest adventure, although it's honestly just as confusing, too.

It's a pretty deep cut for all the Warcraft references - my particular favourite being all of the Warchief's different incarnations, including new incumbent Vol'jin - but it's still a fun take on the scene if you're familiar with the source material, and pretty well done (even if a bit rough around the edges at points).


Timelords Warlords of Draenor is out November 13th.
