The Eighth Doctor regenerates into The War Doctor.

His last words are "Physician, heal thyself."

This was a 6 minutes 49 second "webisode" available on the BBC iPlayer or Youtube that bridged the gap between the 1995 TV Movie and the New Who series that started in 2005, especially the 50th anniversary episode The Day Of The Doctor as well as showing the missing regeneration for the Eighth Doctor into The War Doctor.
