Dr Who

Up to date as of January 31, 2010

From TARDIS Index File, the free Doctor Who reference.

Alexander the Great (356-323 BC) was king of Macedon (336-323 BC) and one of the most successful Greek military commanders in history. The Doctor claimed to have met Alexander the Great. (DW: Robot)

It is possible that the Doctor met Alexander the Great in the same adventure that he met Pyrrho, as the two were contemporaries.

Behind the Scenes

In 1964 a six-episode story entitled Farewell Great Macedon was written for the First Doctor. It was never produced (the script would be published in book form in 2009). It's possible the meeting referenced in Robot could be this unproduced adventure.

Alexander the Great (356-323 BC) was king of Macedonia and one of the most successful and legendary commanders in military history. Alexander's most notable achievement was conquering the Persian empire. He served as an inspiration and ideal for many later leaders, including Julius Caesar.

In the 1996 Creature Shop TV movie Gulliver's Travels, Alexander is one of several historical figures conjured by The Sorceror, using Gulliver's blood. The Sorceror questions Alexander about his death (a matter still of historical debate), and the general, with a British accent of course, insists that he died of a fever brought on by excessive drinking, and immediately asks where the alcoholic spirits are stored.

History

Born in 356 BC, the heir to the King of Macedon, Alexander studied under philosopher Aristotle. He became a scholar and a king himself, establishing a great empire from Greece to Italy.

Alexander and hundreds of his soldiers and courtisans were captured by a time anomaly and sent to 1870's Dodge City. As soon as he arrived, he lost some valued scrolls with Aristotle's dialogues.

Nevertheless, he decided to build a camp and capture land and resources. He had some twenty-six tents and so many troops and courtisans that nobody could stealth in. However, he soon found problems in form of two other armies competing with his own: Napoleon Bonaparte's and Genghis Khan's troops, all of them time-travellers. Alexander was blisfully unaware of a fourth army, made of Krozzar aliens, and of time-travelling super-villain Doctor Doom.

However, Alexander controlled the access route to a mountain the Krozzar needed for a tactical demolition scheme. Krozzar General Alzzan was making preparatives to use his troops and some slave recruits to fight the Hellenics.

Unknowing the danger, Alexander favored some pleasure by listening to scholars and poets. He met a Mark Twain, who impressed him with a work in process, The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn, gaining access to Alexander's camp. Alexander, meanwhile, intended to poison the water supply of Napoleon.

Alexander also met with some other time-travellers, super-heroes from the 20th century who wanted to warn him of the Krozzar and propose an alliance with the other generals. Mark Twain tried to liven up the evening, but the super-heroes noticed some anachronism in him. Twain tried to leave, but Alexander ordered his arrest. Twain was revealed to be an android sent by Doctor Doom to spy anyone with power. He attacked, but was defeated by the heroes.

Impressed by the heroes, Alexander accepted the proposed alliance. The three armies together and ready, led by the best military minds in history, were more than a match for Alzzan's alien forces: The Krozzar never managed to capture the needed route, not even after fifteen hours of non-stop battle. However, during this time, the super-heroes sneaked into the Krozzar base and defused their only bomb.

Eventually, the heroes managed to solve the time-crisis. Alexander and all of his men returned home.

Alex Brisbane

Alex Brisbane

Professor Alex Brisbane is a direct descendant of Alexander the Great. He was working with Dr. Solomon Muto in India exploring a mysterious pyramid. They entered it and only Brisbane got out, Dr. Mutou apparently disappeared in to thin air. Later, when Yugi and friends came, he led them to the chamber in the pyramid where Dr. Mutou disappeared. It turns out that when professor Brisbane entered, he got possessed by the dark side of Alexander the Great and used Yugi and his friends to unleash the "ultimate power." He is voiced by Pete Zarustica in the dub.

Alexander the Great

The greatest conqueror in history, Alexander the Great was an ancient king who nearly conquered the world, and serves as the main villain during the Capsule Monsters mini-arc. Through his armies some of the ancient world's greatest nations fell before him, including Greece, Persia, and Egypt (the latter of which made Alexander into one of the great pharaohs). During his adventures Alexander came into possession of the Millennium Ring and began to carry it as a lucky charm. However, the ring soon began to cloud his mind, causing him to turn power-hungry and losing the respect of his troops (except for a handful of his servants). Wanting ultimate power Alexander was confronted by Shadi who told him to take the trial of the Capsule Monsters if he wanted the power. Alexander passed the trials, but was not allowed the power he wanted and his soul was trapped within the legendary Pyramid of Alexander (located in India). His spirit was also torn in two, one good (which was trapped within the game) and one evil (this one being trapped within the temple). Alexander's evil half would later possess his direct descendant.

After Yugi and friends passed the Capsule Monster trial (with the help of Alexander's good side), they crossed back into the pyramid and confronted Alexander's possessed descendant. He managed to steal an artifact that would allow him to unlock an ultimate power from within the temple. However, he was foiled by Yugi and friends and Alexander's dark half was banished forever, while his good side's spirit finally passed on to rest.
