A watch face app for Pebble indicates the time of day with the faces of the Doctor.

How well do you know Doctor Who? If you're an aficionado — or would like to become one — Pebble app creator drwrose has created perhaps the most apropos watch face we've seen.

Instead of telling you the hour in numerals, the time of day is indicated by the face of the appropriate incarnation of the one and only Timelord, with Peter Capaldi filling the shoes of the new 12th Doctor. The face of the Doctor fills the screen, with a small two-digit indicator in the bottom right letting you know the minute.

In actuality, there are 13 Doctors in the watch, with the 8.5th Doctor — the so-called War Doctor, played by Sir John Hurt in "Day of the Doctor" — coming in at 8.30, which should please those who believe that the film starring Paul McGann was an embarrassment to the canon.

We do feel a little bit sorry for poor old Colin Baker, who may end up being the face of having to get up on work mornings. But we're looking forward to "half-past John Pertwee" entering the horological lexicon.

In order, the 12 (and a half) Doctors are William Hartnell, Patrick Troughton, John Pertween Tom Baker, Peter Davison, Colin Baker, Sylvester McCoy, Paul McGann, John Hurt, Christopher Eccleston, David Tennant, Matt Smith and Peter Capaldi.

You can get the app for free from My Pebble Faces.
