The New Doctors of Whoniverse-B

Last week, the veil between dimensions parted and we got a peek at how Whoniverse-B's Doctors adopted different looks from the ones we've known across the last 53 years. But we only managed to see the Classic-era Doctors. What about the post-1989, so-called, New Doctors?
Returning to his roots - for if you remember Doc-1B's military duds - Doctor 8-B put on a monocled military look and a stern manner, using his authoritarianism to inspire mutiny and subversion. The sonic swagger stick was a step too far and the American TV relaunch didn't go anywhere beyond the pilot.
It would later be revealed that in the years following the TVM, the Time Lords and Daleks engaged in a Time War, and the Doctor became the War Doctor to finally put an end to it. In Whoniverse-B, that meant going full Victorian and using books and research to "loophole" the War into nonexistence. The contrast makes sense considering how many B Doctors had a militaristic attitude in the first place.
In 2005, Doctor Who finally returned to BBC television with a dapper but sinister Doctor 9-B who, in the season opener, locked the last remaining Ice Warriors in a vault. He would horrify his companion often over the course of that single season, and yet Rose Taylor stuck around to see him regenerate.
Doctor 10-B, like 10-A, and 10-Blue, was a lover, not a fighter. A frou-frou kind of lover. The Doctor as a sex symbol finally came to Whoniverse-B... at about the same time it did to our plane of existence.
No matter how extravagant 10-B was, no one expected the rapper chic of Doctor 11-B, nor how buff he would become during his years on the show. Like he said in his first appearance, "I am definitely a mad man with boxing gloves". And the current Doctor?
Oh damn. Every 6 Doctors, eh?
