Tim Latimer describing the Doctor

The Doctor was a renegade Time Lord from the planet Gallifrey who, as a voluntary exile from his homeworld fought injustice where he found it. Alone among the Time Lords, he survived the Last Great Time War with the Daleks, though they returned shortly before his tenth regeneration. Throughout his life, he had a particular association and affinity with the planet Earth and its Humans.

Biography

For more detailed biographical information see articles for individual incarnations. For information on the Doctor's earliest life, see First Doctor.

The Doctor left Gallifrey and became a hero who fought evil and injustice across the universe, in violation of the Time Lords' non-interference policy. He travelled with many companions, beginning with Susan Foreman who also came from Gallifrey.

Eventually, he was held to account for his crimes against the Time Lords during his second incarnation. The punishment was a forced regeneration and exile to Earth, as well as loss of the knowledge of how to control the TARDIS. (DW: The War Games) This knowledge was restored to him after he helped to defeat Omega. (DW: The Three Doctors)

The Doctor fought in the Last Great Time War between the Time Lords and the Daleks. He was ultimately responsible for ending the war, likely the act which resulted in the obliteration of Gallifrey, as well as the supposed extinction of both races, apart from the Doctor himself. (DW: Dalek)

The Doctor's incarnations

The eleven incarnations of the Doctor

Through the power of regeneration, the Doctor's personality and outer form has greatly changed over time, although all his incarnations are essentially the same person. He continues to be a heroic figure, fighting the evils of the universe wherever he finds them, even if his values and motives are sometimes alien to Humankind. To date, the Doctor has had eleven incarnations:

  • The First Doctor was a somewhat unreadable, guarded figure, irascible, protective of young women who reminded him of his grand-daughter Susan, a brilliant but often short-tempered scientist and a keen strategist. Though far from invulnerable, he usually ran rings around lesser intellects.
  • The Second Doctor was warm and wise, a sort of 'cosmic hobo', often as frightened of the alien menaces he faced as those around him. Often overtaken by events, he improvised his way out of trouble — but he also had a manipulative streak about him, too.
  • The Third Doctor cut more of a dashing figure than his predecessors, a dandy with a penchant for gadgets and martial arts, particularly Venusian aikido. His difficult relationship with the Brigadier softened to an easy mutual trust. He had a personal arch-enemy, the Master. Due to his exile by his own people, he spent most of his life on Earth.
  • The Fourth Doctor was something of a cross between Willy Wonka and the Mad Hatter, rarely without his signature scarf of incredible length. He was perhaps the most eccentric incarnation and progressed from bohemian vagabond to manic scatterbrain to a more mature and sombre figure.
  • The Fifth Doctor had a fondness for cricket. He was somewhat more nervous and less sure of himself than the two previous Doctors, though all the more heroic because of it. Like the Second Doctor, he often found himself backed into a corner and had to figure out a way back once more.
  • The Sixth Doctor, grandiose and eloquent, sported a multi-hued wardrobe that looked as if designed by Christian Lacroix, had a manic personality and an acerbic wit which could shade into moral passion. He loved a good quote and rarely got caught off-guard by an enemy.
  • The Seventh Doctor, his voice touched by a Scottish burr, combined the vagabond nature of the Second and Fourth Doctors with the scientific brilliance of the First and Third incarnations. Armed with a keenly tactical mind, his personality deepened and darkened. He seemed, often, a demi-god walking amongst lesser beings, letting his companions know little, an avenging angel driven to eradicate evil at any cost. Of all the Doctors, he had arguably the most complex personality.
  • The Eighth Doctor showed a romantic and sensitive side not evident in the previous Doctors. More morally flexible than his predecessor, this Doctor suffered bouts of amnesia, first after his initial regeneration and again after the first destruction of Gallifrey following the War with the Enemy.
  • The Ninth Doctor, now a survivor of the Last Great Time War, displayed much of the playfulness of the Fourth and early Seventh Doctors, but also displayed a pragmatism which could at times appear callous. This Doctor also seemed very conscious of the effects his actions had on those around him. His attire was also considerably more conservative and less conspicuous than those of his predecessors and his accent and attitude more working class.
  • The Tenth Doctor showed a manic personality,and bit of an eccentric crackpot, a cross between the Fourth Doctor and the Ninth, with hints of the Seventh with the style of the Fifth and a fondness for Human pop culture reference. He had a serious side to him, but quite often his more playful traits would counter the serious unless in great danger. At times he could also show various other traits, such as ruthlessness and emotion.
  • The Eleventh Doctor - Not much is known about this incarnation, except he appears to be the most youthful looking incarnation of the Doctor.

An interesting aspect of the Doctor's personality is that he has on occasion expressed a personal liking for particular incarnations, though this opinion may change depending on the incarnation making the assessment. Most recently, the Doctor's tenth incarnation expressed a deep fondness for his fifth incarnation (DW: Time Crash). Ironically, the Fifth Doctor was disliked by his succesor (DW:The Twin Dilemma), though this may have been due to his particulary aggresive regenerative trauma. In another instance, the fourth made reference to the third, saying "Some people liked it, but I prefer this one" (DW: The Brain of Morbius). Immedietaley after his tenth regneration, the Eleventh Doctor remarked upon his new nose, stating that "I've had worse"- a reference to his third incarnation. (DW: The End of Time)

Other incarnations

See Other incarnations of the Doctor.

Regeneration

Due to the unique structure of Time Lord physiology, the Doctor has the ability to regenerate so as to "cheat death" (DW: The Parting of the Ways) in a manner of speaking. In each situation thus far, the Doctor has ultimately retained the memories and the native abilities of his previous incarnation and, in that sense, he does indeed cheat death.  Even so, his tenth incarnation stated that the process feels like dying; and that after each regeneration it is a new man who walks away, even if he still possesses his memories and the fundamental aspects of his character (DW: The End of Time, Part 1). While a Time Lord is usually limited to twelve regenerations (making the "thirteenth Doctor" the last) the technology exists on Gallifrey to extend the number of regenerations, and a skilled Time Lord can control his regeneration to a degree.

Personal information

The Doctor's name

The Doctor was an extremely enigmatic individual. Befitting this, his true name remains unknown to all but a very few individuals (of which only one, River Song, has been confirmed (DW: Forest of the Dead)). Apparently his real name is not even used by the Time Lords. (DW: The War Games, DW: The Trial of a Time Lord, DW: The End of Time) The use of the title "doctor" is not undeserved, however, as the Doctor does possess a doctorate of some sort (DW: The Armageddon Factor). Apparently the name is written in stars in the Medusa Cascade as a reminder of his closing the rift there (DW: The Fires of Pompeii).

Connections with Earth

Although the Doctor visited many worlds, the planet Earth remains the one for which he had the closest affinity. He displayed immense knowledge of and/or interest in Earth history and was either an observer or an active participant in countless major events in that history. As noted previously, he found himself exiled to Earth during his third incarnation, very much against his wishes.

However he also had, at times, an affinity for the place, and specifically for Great Britain. When Angus Goodman asked him if he was British, he replied that he wasn't, but thanked Gus for the compliment. (DWM: 4-Dimensional Vistas) He considered himself to be British soon after his regeneration into his eighth incarnation. (DW: The TV Movie)

His incarnations have adopted accents based upon different regions of the United Kingdom, most notably his seventh incarnation (who had a Scottish accent) and his ninth, whose accent resembled that of the north of England - though he tried to pass it off by claiming "lots of planets have a North!" (DW: Rose) His tenth incarnation once adopted a convincing Scottish accent as part of a disguise. (DW: Tooth and Claw)

The vast majority of the Doctor's known companions have been humans hailing from various points in the planet's history. His ninth and tenth incarnations developed a network of friends and former companions at one point referred to as the Doctor's secret Army or the Children of Time. Thanks to their knowledge of him, they were able to summon him in a time of desperate need when he was unable to find Earth and come to save the day with his companion at the time, Donna Noble. This threat took the combined power of the Doctor and all of the companions and friends in his Secret Army to defeat. Among those were Sarah Jane Smith (who refered to his companions as his family as well) and her computer Mr Smith, her dog K-9 and her son Luke Smith, Captain Jack Harkness and his Torchwood team, Harriet Jones (who sacrificed herself to help summon him), Donna Noble and her mother and grandfather who helped summon the Doctor, Martha Jones who was given a job at UNIT after she left the Doctor, Mickey Smith who briefly traveled with him, Rose Tyler and her mother Jackie who showed up to help from Pete's World (the parellel world they were living on). Also, a clone of the Doctor was created that played a role in the end of the threat as well, but was left behind on Pete's World with Rose to live out a normal human life. (DW: The Stolen Earth, Journey's End)

The general populace of Earth remained oblivious to the Doctor's ongoing efforts to protect the planet, and unaware of his existence. There have been a few exceptions to this, however. During the Sycorax invasion, Prime Minister Harriet Jones made a public appeal over the UK airwaves calling on the Doctor to intervene. (DW: The Christmas Invasion) The Doctor appeared on international television to light the Olympic flame at the 2012 London Games, though he was never identified (DW: Fear Her). By the early 21st century, the Doctor had also become something of a cult figure, with at least one group, LINDA, following his exploits (DW: Love & Monsters, Time Crash), and conspiracy theorists dedicating websites to solving the "Who is the Doctor?" mystery (DW: Rose, World War Three, et al). At some point after 2059, due to the Doctor altering history, a media website ran a story about "The Mythical Doctor" and his involvement in the Bowie Base One incident on Mars and the rescue of two of its crewmembers (DW: The Waters of Mars).

Perhaps the widest knowledge of the Doctor came during the so-called The Year That Never Was, during which Martha Jones travelled around Earth spreading tales of the Doctor and generating a groundswell of faith in the Time Lord that facilitated the defeat of the Master; this timeline, however, was ultimately negated and forgotten by all but a few individuals. (DW: Last of the Time Lords). A rare public show of gratitude for the Doctor's efforts occurred at the behest of Jackson Lake in 19th century London following the defeat of the CyberKing (DW: The Next Doctor); similarly, during the same era, Queen Victoria knighted the Doctor (dubbing him Sir Doctor of TARDIS) for his efforts before banishing him from Great Britain. (DW: Tooth and Claw) Neither event appears to have been widely recorded in history.

Family

On Gallifrey

On Gallifrey, the Doctor was one of the forty-five cousins created by a Loom to the House of Lungbarrow. When the House disowned him, he replied that he had "other families." (NA: Lungbarrow)

These would somehow seem to include parents (DW: Doctor Who) and a spouse (DW: Blink, MA: Cold Fusion), probably Patience (PDA: The Infinity Doctors) and at least one child (DW: Fear Her). He had a grand-daughter, Susan Foreman; although some accounts suggest Susan may have not been the Doctor's natural-born grand-daughter, there is no confirmation. All are believed by the Doctor to be lost, either killed during the Last Great Time War or having died long before it. (DW: The Tomb of the Cybermen) When one person asked him what had happened to his family, he replied, with seemingly honesty, that he didn't know. (DW: The Curse of Fenric)

He had not, however, at that point, returned to the House of Lungbarrow. As far as the Doctor's adoption of Susan, contradictory statements describe the circumstances under which he adopted her - or if he did - though both identify her as originally a native of Gallifrey. Her later fate, unless she died in the Last Great Time War, remains unknown.

He had at least one brother (DW: Smith and Jones, possibly the Time Lord Irving Braxiatel. (BNA: Tears of the Oracle)

After the Last Great Time War

Genetic material from the Doctor in his tenth incarnation was used to create an offspring, Jenny. The Doctor believed Jenny to have been murdered, although unknown to him she underwent a partial regeneration and survived. (DW: The Doctor's Daughter)

During the event in which Earth was relocated to the Medusa Cascade, a clone of the Doctor was created; this clone later was exiled by the Doctor to Pete's World; technically, however, the clone can be considered a relative of the Doctor's, after a fashion. Also, Sarah Jane Smith refered to the Doctor's companions as his family saying "you're such a lonely man, but you've got the biggest family on Earth!" (DW: Journey's End)

Marriage

During an encounter with Ood Sigma not long before his regeneration, the Doctor, in his tenth incarnation, claimed to have married 'Good Queen Bess' (presumably Queen Elizabeth I), a decision that didn't end well and indeed led to her declaring him an enemy. (DW: The Shakespeare Code, The End of Time) This does not appear to be the Doctor's only marriage, as he remarked to Sally Sparrow about being "rubbish at weddings, especially my own." (DW: Blink)

Influence

The Doctor belonged to the Prydonian Chapter, the most important chapter of Time Lord society. (DW: The Deadly Assassin) He had a profound influence on many worlds and been written into their history (DW: Forest of the Dead); as a result he has been the recipient of many honours including being made a noble of Draconia and a knight of the British Empire. (DW:Frontier in Space, Tooth and Claw)

Having broken the Time Lords' non-interference policy, in his second incarnation he was put on trial as a renegade. (DW: The War Games) Subsequently, for a time, he acted as agent of the Time Lords' Celestial Intervention Agency before the beginning of his sentence on 20th century Earth. (PDA: Players, World Game) Folllowing his defeat of Omega, which saved Gallifrey, he was given a pardon and granted freedom. (DW: The Three Doctors)

In his fourth incarnation, as part of a ploy to outwit invaders to Gallifrey, he applied for the position of Lord President of the High Council. (DW: The Invasion of Time) In his fifth incarnation, he was put on trial again for recklessness. (DWM: The Stockbridge Horror) He was later given the title of Lord President again by Councillor Flavia, against his wishes. He pretended to accept the office but ran away in his TARDIS. (DW: The Five Doctors) Prior to the Doctor's trial during his sixth incarnation, he was deposed in absentia and put on trial for breaking the non-interference policy and, later in the same trial, for genocide, although the validity of the trial was called into question when it was discovered that it had been orchestrated by an evil future manifestation of the Doctor, the Valeyard. (DW: The Trial of a Time Lord)

Languages

"You speak their language?"
Lady Christina, after the Doctor spoke the Tritovore's language.
"Every language."
The Doctor

The Doctor can speak 5 billion languages (DW: The Parting of the Ways), though it is likely he can only do so with help from the TARDIS' telepathic translation circuits. His native language is probably Modern Gallifreyan, but he seems to prefer speaking British English. He can read and write Old High Gallifreyan, an unusual skill even among Time Lords. (DW: The Five Doctors) It is possible however, that he does speak in a language other than English, and the TARDIS translates for everyone he speaks to.

He was fluent in the language of the Judoon (DW: The Stolen Earth), Delphon (a language "spoken" using only eyebrow movements) (DW: Spearhead from Space), several Chinese languages (DW: The Mind of Evil, The Talons of Weng-Chiang), and many other Human and alien languages. He did not seem to understand French in his second incarnation (DW: The War Games), but later became fluent.

Companions

"The Doctor likes traveling with an entourage. Sometimes they're human, sometimes they're aliens and sometimes they're tin dogs."
―Sarah Jane Smith
Main article: Companion

Throughout much of his life, the Doctor has chosen (or been forced) to share his travels with an array of individuals, occasionally referred to in official terms as companions. (DW: The Stolen Earth) Usually humanoid and female, these platonic relationships have provided the Doctor with company and, occasionally, a means to control his actions. (DW: The Runaway Bride) On rare occasions the Doctor has developed a relationship with a companion that could be said to move away from platonic (Grace Holloway, Rose Tyler). At least one "family member", Susan Foreman, also travelled as a companion to the Doctor for a time.

Behind the Scenes

"Doctor Who"

The use of the name "Doctor Who" when referring to the Doctor is disapproved of by most fans. Despite this, the ending credits for the series gave his name as "Doctor Who" or "Dr. Who", from 1963 until 1980, when new Producer John Nathan-Turner changed the policy, making his name in the end credits now "the Doctor", which remained in place until the original series ended in 1989. Executive Producer Russell T Davies used "Doctor Who" when the series returned in 2005, but Tenth Doctor actor David Tennant asked to change it back to "the Doctor" beginning in 2006. It remains to be seen if this will continue into the Matt Smith era.

Throughout the franchise's history it has been common for the character to be referred to by media and cast members as "Dr. Who".

In the series, only one character, WOTAN in 1966's The War Machines, has ever directly referred to him by this name. Other media, 1960s and early 1970s Doctor Who Annuals, comics and Target Books (most notably the Doctor Who and the Zarbi, not technically a Target Books novelisation, but reprinted by them) have called the Doctor "Doctor Who". Even then, dialogue between characters usually referred to him as "the Doctor".

In the 1990s, the name "The Doctor" took on an unusual distinction in science fiction history as it came to be used not only in Doctor Who but also in the Star Trek franchise, as a character known only as "The Doctor" was introduced in the 1995-2001 spin-off series Star Trek: Voyager. Although both franchises have made one-off references to each other, this remains the only occasion in which ongoing major characters in both have shared the same name.

Casting

So far every actor to portray the Doctor have been male, white, and born in the United Kingdom. In recent years there has been speculation over whether Time Lords should be able to change races or even sexes when regenerating. While the latter idea was first postulated by Tom Baker and never taken seriously, during the recent casting for the Eleventh Doctor, at least one black actor was considered a leading contender. Actors from the United States or Canada,(in one case Australia) have been rumoured as contenders for the role over the years. Actors considered for the role have varied widely in age, from the 20s to the 60s. To date the oldest actor to be cast as the Doctor has been William Hartnell, who was 55; the youngest has been Matt Smith, who was 26 when cast. Jon Pertwee was 77 when he made his final official performance as the Doctor for a BBC Radio serial, making him the oldest actor to play the part in an officially licensed capacity. His closest rival is Tom Baker, who turned 75 in 2009, the year he recorded a series of Doctor Who audio dramas.

"The Doctor" was the name used to refer to the USS Voyager's Emergency Medical Hologram.

The EMH Mark I was a computer program with a holographic interface, designed by Doctor Lewis Zimmerman and with his own form, whose role was to act as an emergency doctor should the medical personnel of a starship or facility become disabled. In normal circumstances, the EMH would be used in the short-term until the real doctors could be treated, or replacement medical personnel arrived. However in the Doctor's case, Voyager was sent over 70,000 light years into the Delta Quadrant, and there were no replacement medical personnel.

Life Aboard Voyager

Activation and Early Years

The Doctor was first activated aboard Voyager on stardate 48308.2, shortly after Voyager had been flung into the Delta Quadrant by the Caretaker. Upon his activation he learned that the entire medical staff had been killed during the journey to the Delta Quadrant and that he was the only medical officer aboard. (VOY episodes: "Caretaker").

The Doctor suffers a malfunction.

The Doctor's early days aboard Voyager were difficult for him. With the Doctor only being a hologram in the eyes of the crew, they often treated him as a piece of technology, and because of the Doctor's programming his bedside manner was seen as rude by the majority of the crew. The general attitude shown to him made the Doctor believe he was unimportant to the crew and that he was often left out when it came to important information, such as the arrival of Kes and Neelix aboard Voyager, and the repair of his holographic imaging matrix after Voyager encountered a quantum singularity. (VOY episodes: "Parallax" and "Time and Again").

However, the Doctor soon made a friend in Kes, who as well as having an interest in studying medicine, served as a champion for the Doctor's rights to Captain Janeway, which meant that he was treated with respect by the crew, and had control over his own activation sub-routines. Kes also began to tutor the Doctor in the social graces to improve his bedside manner and overall attitude. She also suggested that the Doctor find a real name so that he could feel more like a member of the crew. (VOY episodes: "Eye of the Needle" and "Heroes and Demons").

The Doctor on his first away mission.

A few months into Voyager's journey home, the Doctor participated in his first away mission to the holodeck after several officers had been taken from the Beowulf holoprogram. He discovered that they were being held by a being of photonic energy after Voyager took aboard some photonic energy. The crewmembers were released, when the Doctor returned the other being. (VOY episode: "Heroes and Demons").

A few weeks later, an accident aboard Voyager while the Doctor was in the holodeck, led him to confuse illusion and reality. He was visited by Lieutenant Reginald Barclay, one of the engineers that worked on his programming, who told him that he was in fact Dr. Zimmerman and was trapped in a holodeck simulation of Voyager at the Jupiter Station. He was convinced by Barclay that the only way to escape was to destroy the holographic Voyager by firing a phaser at the warp core. Thankfully, Chakotay managed to convince the Doctor that he was about to destroy his own matrix, and the Doctor was freed from the holodeck. (VOY episode: "Projections").

The Doctor and Dr. Pel on a date.

In mid-2372, Voyager received a Vidiian scientist named Dr. Denara Pel, who was near death due to the phage. The Doctor was determined to find a cure for her and placed her body in stasis while he worked on it. Before doing so, he transmitted Dr. Pel's synaptic pathways into a hologram that depicted her as she would look without the phage.

Based on experiments conducted on Lieutenant B'Elanna Torres the previous year, the Doctor took samples of her Klingon DNA as a starting point for his research. As the two worked together on the project, the Doctor became enamoured with Dr. Pel and made several additions to his program in order to gain her romantic interest. Unfortunately, the Doctor was unable to develop a cure for the phage, but was able to prolong Dr. Pel's life so that she could return home. (VOY episode: "Lifesigns").

The Doctor and Dr. Pel contacted each other a few months later, after Captain Janeway and Commander Chakotay were infected by a parasite on an uninhabited Class M planet. Lieutenant Tuvok, while temporarily in command of Voyager, gave in to the crew's demands to contact the Vidiians and discover if they had a cure that would allow Janeway and Chakotay to leave the planet. The Vidiians used the incident as an excuse to attack Voyager, but Dr. Pel contacted the Doctor and beamed the cure aboard. (VOY episode: "Resolutions").

In early 2373, the Doctor played an part in the defeat of the Kazon-Nistrim. After Voyager was captured by the Kazon and the crew marooned on Hanon IV, the Doctor along with Lon Suder helped sabotage the backup phaser couplings. This allowed Tom Paris and a small Talaxian fleet to retake the ship and save the crew, after Paris disabled the main phaser couplings and Voyager was damaged when the Kazon attempted to use the backups. The Doctor was briefly disabled when Seska locked out Starfleet voice commands after turning him off, preventing Suder from reactivating him, but the Doctor left a message for Suder, assuring the former killer that the Doctor had confidence in his abilities to retake the ship. Suder was successful in doing so, but was killed by a Kazon soldier. (VOY episodes: "Basics").

A few weeks later, the Doctor had reached the limits of his storage capacity due to all the modifications he had been making to his program. He began experiencing amnesia, and during a medical procedure on Tom Paris, he forgot all of his medical skills, and diagnostics revealed that his program was in danger of disintegrating completely. After consulting the holographic Diagnostic Program Alpha-11, it was decided that the only option was to overlay the Doctor's program with the diagnostic program. While this was successful, the Doctor returned to a state similar to that when he was first activated. However, over time memories began to resurface. (VOY episode: "The Swarm").

Gaining Freedom

Around stardate 50312, Voyager was pulled in orbit around Earth in the year 1996 by the Federation timeship UTS Aeon. Shortly after arrival the crew of Voyager learned that a local businessman named Henry Starling had stolen the Aeon and had used its technology to create the computer age on Earth, and that he intended to use the Aeon to travel to the 29th century.

While trying to stop Starling, the businessman was able to download the Doctor's program from Voyager's database. Starling was able to alter the Doctor's program using advanced 29th century techniques, so that he could torture him for information. He also gave the Doctor a mobile emitter which would enable him to travel anywhere. When the Doctor was later recovered by Voyager he retained the emitter and a whole new lease of life opened up for him. (VOY episodes: "Future's End, Parts I & II").

With his new found abilities to feel pain and move freely around the ship, the Doctor worked on other ways to improve his program and quality of life. He experimented with downloading personality subroutines from many historical figures including Lord Byron, Mahatma Gandhi, Socrates, Marie Curie and T'Pau. Unfortunately, this experiment proved a failure when he experienced personality disorder which resulted in a darkly emotional doctor. On an away mission, the dark doctor became jealous when Kes befriended a local named Zahir, and nearly led to the deaths of both Kes and Zahir. (VOY episode: "Darkling").

In late 2373, the Doctor decided to create a "perfect" holographic family, Doctor's Family Program Beta-Rho and chose the name Kenneth for himself. For several weeks the Doctor lived a seemingly blissfully life, until Lt. Torres visited for dinner and suggested adding randomness and "realism" to the program. As a result, his teenage son Jeffrey became rebellious, he had arguments with his wife Charlene, and lost the formerly close bond he had possessed with his daughter Belle. The family bonded together better shortly after, as a result of Belle's death from a mortal Parrises squares injury. Despite wanting to delete the program, The Doctor was persuaded to continue to run the program by Tom Paris. (VOY episode: "Real Life").

A Long Eighteen Minutes

Renaissance Man

Life in the Alpha Quadrant

When Voyager finally returned to the Alpha Quadrant, the Doctor's rights as a sentient were placed in jeopardy by the "holo-strike" orchestrated by Oliver Baines. After being arrested by Starfleet, he was released, and allowed to join a "think tank" with Seven of Nine. (VOY novels Homecoming, The Farther Shore)

In 2380 he testified at a hearing to determine the rights of the Soong-type android prototype B-4. The Doctor's experience as an early version of the Emergency Medical Hologram utility who had grown past his original design parameters was deemed relevant to the case. (novel Articles of the Federation).

He had been working at the Federation Research Institute along with Seven of Nine and a variety of other very intelligent individuals on various projects for the Federation. The Doctor then took up a project with Lewis Zimmerman and Reginald Barclay at Jupiter Station to program and develop the Emergency Medical Vessel, a ship part of Project Full Circle, equipped with quantum slipstream drive and a verity of advanced holograms, with The Doctor serving as Chief Medical Officer, and began exploring the Delta Quadrant (VOY novel Full Circle)

In 2382, Starfleet ordered The Doctor's mobile emitter be transferred for research purposes to Galor IV. The Doctor filed a lawsuit to prevent this from happening; the JAG office issued an injunction until further research could be done and a final ruling made. (ST website: The Path to 2409)

History

When the universe was in it's infancy, one of the first civilisations arose on the planet Gallifrey. They were exceptionally long lived, naturally sensitive to the flow of time, and highly telepathic. For many long years the Gallifreyans were ruled by a matriarchal cult led by the Pythia, who ruled through superstition and magic. Gradually an opposing faction arose which embraced science, conquering space and establishing a Gallifreyan Empire. Most notably a triumvirate of three young Gallifreyans came to the fore; the scientist Rassilon, the engineer Omega, and a third individual whose name has been lost to history, remembered only as The Other. Together these three pioneered the science of time travel. Foreseeing that her rule was ending, the 508th Pythia committed suicide, but not before using her vast telepathic powers to curse her people with sterility; no more children would be born of the womb on Gallifrey.

Rassilon turned his attention to this problem, and created vast Looms of genetic material, capable of decanting new Gallifreyans from the primordial soup within. His first few prototypes of the new "Loom-born" Gallifreyans would eventually become known as the Special Executive. The later Loom-born had lesser telepathic abilities and shorter life spans than their Womb-born counterparts, but could regenerate their forms. To keep the population under control, Rassilon organised the Gallifreyans into Houses, and decreed that each House could have only 45 "Cousins" at any one time.

The three friends' experiments into time travel continued, and they came to realise that a very special power source was required to allow development of stable time travel. They would need to capture a black hole. So they developed a stellar manipulator known as the Hand of Omega, able to blow up stars. Unfortunately sabotage by an outside agency meant that Omega's ship was sucked into the newly created void, and he would long be believed dead. But his sacrifice helped make the Gallifreyans Lords of Time.

Back on Gallifrey Rassilon had become a hero, and de facto ruler of the planet. Some nine years after the death of the Pythia, he ordered a massacre of her remaining followers who were hiding in her temple. Rassilon felt no pity for her acolytes as his wife had miscarried when the Pythia invoked her curse, but the Other could not stomach the new, totalitarian regime he could see taking over his world. He ordered that his sole surviving relative (and the last child who had been born before the curse), his grand-daughter Susan, be taken safely off-world, for he saw trouble in his planet's future, and then he committed suicide by throwing himself into the Looms, mixing his genetic material with what was already there.

The Other would be proven right; first Rassilon would lead a campaign against any alien powers he deemed might one day threaten his new Gallifrey, exterminating a number of species such as the Charon and the Great Vampires; where possible they would wipe them from history in what would later be termed the Time Wars. And secondly civil war came again to Gallifrey when the Loom-born, tired of being treated as second class citizens, rose up to exterminate their Womb-born fellows. Although Rassilon himself remained venerated as their "father", the rest of the Womb-born were eventually thought to be wiped out, although in truth a handful of them survived, hiding themselves amongst the rest of the population. Some of them survive to this day, millennia later.

Eventually the Time Lords adopted a policy of non-intervention. Forbidden to travel into their own past or future, a people who prided themselves on observing and recording all history ironically (or conveniently) forgot much of their own. Rassilon's era became known as the Old Time.

A little over one thousand years ago a new Cousin was born in the House of Lungbarrow. His true name is all but unpronounceable to anyone who isn't Gallifreyan, and besides, his relatives soon took to calling him by the derisive nicknames "Snail" and "Wormhole" because of the small indentation-like birth mark he had in the lower portion of his chest. Being Loom-borns, none of them recognised what another species would have said was a belly-button. Unknown to all, including the new born, the Other's genetic material had finally been fully restored to a new body. Snail never fitted in and had no real friends amongst his Cousins.

As was expected Snail went to the Academy, the graduates of whom would rise above being simple Gallifreyans to the thousand strong Time Lord elite, and there he gained a new name from his classmates: Theta Sigma, or Thete for short. Enrolled in the Prydonian Chapter, whose members were renowned for being devious, he encountered Irving Braxiatel, a kindred spirit a few classes above him, who also yearned for life beyond he stagnant atmosphere on unchanging Gallifrey. He also fell in with a group of the brightest students who called themselves the Deca. Many of this group would later leave Gallifrey and become renegades from their people. And it was while he was one of the Deca that Thete finally chose a name for himself, rather than letting others pick for him; he became known as the Doctor.

Knowing that the head of his House, Quences, had ambitions of high office for him, the Doctor deliberately scraped a minimum pass mark at the Academy. Angered, Quences disowned the Doctor, and without waiting for permission to do so, had the family Loom decant a new Cousin to replace him. The Doctor informed the head of the Prydonian Chapter of this breach of the rules, and then decided that the time was right to leave his homeworld. Stealing a TARDIS from the repair bays (as the rest were too well guarded), he departed Gallifrey unaware that his House had been excommunicated for creating a new Cousin, their names struck off all records and all his Cousins buried alive in the House for their crime. They would remain there for hundreds of years.

The Doctor soon discovered he had a stowaway in his new TARDIS. The Hand of Omega, which had been in storage for many years since its last use, had recognised in the Doctor the pattern of one of its makers, and followed him on board. It overrode the safeguards that prevented travel into Gallifrey's past, taking the Doctor back to the Old Time. There he soon encountered a young girl living on the streets. Susan, the Other's grand-daughter, had not made it off-planet after all; the instant she and the Doctor met they recognised a connection between them, and when Susan called him "Grandfather" somehow the Doctor knew she was correct no matter how much it defied logic.

Together they set off on journeys across the breadth of the universe, until Susan decided she wanted to try living as a proper teenager for a while. The two Gallifreyans stopped off in 1963 England, and Susan enrolled in a local school, Coal Hill. But her strange nature soon drew the attention of two of her teachers, Ian Chesterton and Barbara Wright, who followed her home one night to the junkyard where the TARDIS had landed. The Doctor had used the prolonged stay to arrange to hide the Hand of Omega on Earth, and possibly because of this and a fear that the teachers might draw the attention of the authorities to the Hand, he took off with them inside the ship, kidnapping them.

Time passed. Susan left him, and Ian and Barbara, having long since earned his trust, eventually returned home. Other companions joined him in his travels, and as he saw more of the universe, the Doctor increasingly encountered beings of evil he felt had to be opposed. After a while his body, old when he had left Gallifrey, finally gave in to time, and he experienced his first regeneration.

His new body had a tendency to act the fool while quietly manipulating events behind the scenes. He continued his campaign against evil across the galaxy, and more companions came and went. Finally he faced a problem that he could not deal with alone, and reluctantly called on the help of the Time Lords. They assisted him, but then put him on trial for breaking their laws on non-interference. The Doctor argued that there were some evils that had to be fought. In the end he won a partial victory. The Time Lords exiled him to a single planet and a single era, but it was his favourite world, Earth, and the era had been chosen because it was a period when the planet would face regular threats from alien incursions. They also forced another regeneration on him.

The new incarnation of the Doctor arrived shortly after man had started to travel into space, drawing the attention of other races. He agreed to help UNIT, a United Nations taskforce whose remit was to combat alien threats, and worked to repair his TARDIS and beat his exile. After a couple of years his opportunity came when Omega returned, angry at the Time Lords for abandoning him. Unable to deal with the threat themselves, the Time Lords brought together all three versions of the Doctor to battle Omega. His success bought him his freedom; the Time Lords restored his ability to travel in time and space.

Eventually the third Doctor died too, and a fourth version was born, consumed with a wanderlust that was likely a reaction to his previous self's period of enforced stability. He finally returned home, only to be accused of murdering the President of the High Council. In order to prevent his own execution he utilized a little remembered law and declared his intention to stand for the post himself; until the election was over he was protected by legislation put in place to prevent tyrants from murdering their rivals. But the killer turned out to be the other Presidential candidate, who died while trying to eliminate the Doctor. As the only surviving candidate, the Doctor won by default. Elected to the highest post in Gallifrey, the Doctor did the only thing he could; he ran. But even though he had deserted the post, the title remained his, as the Gallifreyans had no rules to cover this kind of eventuality.

It was towards the end of this long lived fourth incarnation's time that the Doctor had his first recorded encounter with someone from the Marvel Megaverse.

The Doctor was surprised when the TARDIS materialised without him setting the co-ordinates. He emerged to discover an unusual looking man who claimed he had summoned the ship with the powers of his mind to help in the hour of Earth's greatest need. They were in the far future, inside the last surviving stronghold of the light against the barbarian forces of Catavolcus. The castle would soon fall to the enemy, but the old man, who was subsequently called Merlin by one of the defenders, wanted to use the Doctor's TARDIS to evacuate the survivors before a nuclear device he had activated destroyed everything. Having armed the weapon, the two fled back to the time ship as Catavolcus' Neutron Knights pierced the castle wall. The Doctor hurried the retreating defenders into his ship, and they departed seconds before the castle and the attackers were vapourised. The Time Lord set the controls to take his passengers to a safe disembarkation spot, and then passed out. He awoke lying outside the TARDIS in some quiet woods, unsure if what he remembered was real or just a dream. But when he entered his ship, he was met by a vision of Merlin, who informed him that they would meet again, "in some distant time, in some other form."

Shortly after this the fourth Doctor faced his old enemy the Master once more, and was killed when he fell from the top of a radio telescope. He regenerated again, taking on his youngest looking form to date.

Following many adventures the Doctor received a mysterious message from the Time Lords. At their behest, he dropped off his travelling companions, and checked into a bed and breakfast in the little English town of Stockbridge.

The Doctor was taking part in a local cricket match when a wave of temporal distortions started, mixing things from different time periods. The Doctor was about to bat, awaiting the bowler's throw, when the cricket ball was swapped for a grenade from the 1940's, which blew apart the wickets. Gunfire then drew the Doctor, a policeman and the other cricketers to a nearby lane, where a local man had discharged a shotgun to drive off attackers wielding swords. When the constable investigated the adjoining woods, he was attacked by a Roman legionary, who then turned on the Doctor. The Doctor deflected the blow with his cricket bat, and the man with the shotgun fired on the Roman, who vanished. Slipping away, the Doctor headed to the spot where he had hidden the TARDIS to check its instruments. Scanning the news channels confirmed that the effect was not localised, so the Doctor decided to collect his belongings from his lodgings and then try to track down the cause. But as he left the TARDIS he was attacked by a knight on horseback.

The Doctor dodged the charge, and the knight was unhorsed when his lance smashed against the TARDIS. The Doctor brought the unconscious man inside the TARDIS, and was in the process of removing his armour to check for injuries when he revived. The knight introduced himself as Sir Justin, and explained that he was snatched from the middle of a joust only to reappear bearing down on the Doctor. The Time Lord stated he would return Justin to his own time, but first he needed to deal with the cause of the temporal anomalies. Foreseeing a chance to perform great deeds, Justin happily agreed to accompany the Doctor. They travelled back to Gallifrey, were the Doctor still held the position of President. Once there the Doctor connected himself to the Matrix, a gigantic computer network containing the preserved memories of all the dead Time Lords, hoping it would help him deduce what was happening. As he did this, a strange shadow man materialised next to the TARDIS and entered the craft. Meanwhile the Doctor's virtual self found himself confronted by representations of Rassilon and two other great Time Lords. They were holding council with other "High Evolutionaries" from the Althrace system and with Merlin the Wise of Earth.

Merlin informed the Doctor that the being behind the time distortions was the demon Melanicus, a foe he banished from this plane of existence a thousand years ago. Melanicus had hijacked a device known as the Event Synthesiser which regulated the flow of time. Rassilon charged the Doctor with finding Melanicus and restoring the Synthesiser to its proper function. Returning to the real world, Justin and the Doctor made their way back to the TARDIS to begin their quest. Before they could take off however a beam penetrated Gallifrey's defenses and deposited an assassin inside the ship. As time slowed down for the Doctor and Justin, effectively paralysing them, the shadow man who breached the TARDIS earlier materialised behind the Time Lord and shot the assassin before he could carry out his deadly mission.

Released from the grip of the beam, the TARDIS was sent hurtling into the void by the beings in the Matrix, penetrating the domain of Melanicus. In a place where chaos and insanity reigned they initially found that the ship had materialised floating in a gigantic bathtub alongside a huge toy duck, before it next materialised inside a Hall of Mirrors. The Doctor and Justin emerged into the fairground beyond, where the Doctor spotted someone who looked like his old companion Zoe Herriot. He gave chase, following her into the Ghost Train. Convinced the girl might have an idea as to what was happening in this bizarre world, the Doctor jumped into one of the cars and continued his pursuit, unaware that the shadow man was sitting just behind him. The car proved to be on a rollercoaster track, taking the Doctor rapidly through an entrance marked "Door to Hell". On the other side they were surrounded by flames, and the Doctor realised they were heading straight towards the giant form of the demon Melanicus.

The Doctor was unsure as to whether or not the image before him was real. Meanwhile, back in the Matrix, the three Time Lords he encountered earlier at the council meeting decided to raise the manifestation level of their other agent. Suddenly the shadow man who had been dogging the Doctor's footsteps made his presence known, explaining that what the Doctor was facing was a vibratory illusion created by the Synthesiser, indistinguishable from the real thing and just as deadly. However the false Melanicus was no match for the shadow man's gun, and with it's destruction the Ghost Train car exited the fake hell. Seconds later it reached the end of the track, dropping the Doctor and his saviour from a great height.

Sir Justin had experienced his own worries since the Doctor rushed off, being attacked by a number of armoured men. He retreated into the Hall of Mirrors. At the same time the Doctor awakened, having been stunned by his impact on the ground. The shadow man at first appeared to have vanished, but in fact was hiding within the Doctor's own shadow. The Time Lord examined the room he was in, and accidentally knocked into a coffin laid out behind him. This drew the attention of the coffin's resident, a stereotypical vampiric count. Unimpressed by the Doctor's observation that "you represent a strictly mythical figure drawn largely from a work of Victorian fiction", the count advanced threateningly. But Justin spotted the Doctor being threatened through one of the mirrors in the Hall he was in, and smashed his way through to his ally. He drove the vampire off using the hilt of his sword as a cross, and the two friends rushed back into the TARDIS. Aware that he needed to follow the logic of the weird dimension they were in, the Doctor enquired of Justin as to exactly how many mirrors the knight had been forced to break to save him. Informed that it was four, the Doctor calculated as they take off that they were in for twenty-eight years of bad luck.

To avoid the bad luck, the Doctor slipped the TARDIS sideways into another dimension. Twenty-four hours passed for those inside, while outside twenty-eight years went by. During this time Melanicus caused over a thousand years of war to erupt across a thousand planets, with time zones mixing combatants wildly: the Millennium Wars. On Gallifrey in the Matrix Merlin consulted with the other High Evolutionaries. As yet Melanicus' limited understanding of the Event Synthesiser had restricted his damage to only a single dimension, but they feared he might discover how to spread the damage across a multitude of dimensions. If the Doctor could not locate the Synthesiser then the entire cosmos was threatened.

Back in the TARDIS the Doctor decided they must enter the maelstrom Melanicus had created and land as near to the Synthesiser as possible. The problem was that they had no way of knowing where that was at any given moment. A voice pointed out that it's position should be easy to calculate so long as you tooke into account the size of the Synthesiser and the fact that it didn't move; rather everything else moved in relation to it. The voice proved to be that of the shadow man, who introduced himself as Shayde. He explained that he was a mental construct who served the Matrix lords, and was sent to help the Doctor on his mission. While he explained this, the TARDIS picked up a reading, and when the Doctor checked the scanner he was greeted by an extraordinary sight - a crystalline craft composed of pure energy. The craft proved to belong to the Lords of Althrace, one of the groups of High Evolutionaries, who transported the travellers to Althrace, a set of joined planets spinning in the middle of a White Hole.

There the Lords explained the origins of Melanicus, informing the Doctor that the demon had been a native of Althrace. Fleeing to another dimension after an aborted attempt to conquer his home system, he managed to make contact with Catavolcus, then a third century despot. Catavolcus gave Melanicus access to another dimension, Earth's, and in return was given great power and the ability to traverse time. If Merlin had not intervened they would have conquered the Earth. Merlin banished Melanicus back to the dimension he had been hiding in, although Catavolcus remained free, roaming time and space and pillaging planets for their power...at least until he will one day be killed in the nuclear explosion the fourth Doctor nearly witnessed.

According to the Lords of Althrace, Melanicus had turned his full attention to the Earth. The Lords felt responsible, since it was they who first built the Event Synthesiser. Now they planned to unite the wills of all the High Evolutionaries across the galaxies, to stop time and allow the Doctor and Justin to face the villain.

With all time stopped the Doctor followed the coordinates he had now been given and landed the TARDIS on a devastated Earth. From the nearby ruins of a church, he and Justin could hear an organ playing. Inside they found the Event Synthesiser, and as the organist continued to play the ground around them erupted. Sir Justin splashed the face of the organist with a hat-full of Holy Water from the font, unmasking him as Melanicus. As the demon turned on his companion, the Doctor faced a fight of his own, when a cadaverous corpse rose from the ground and attempted to throttle him. Justin came to his rescue, but Melanicus had used the diversion to escape. The demon climbed the outside of the bell tower, only to find Shayde waiting for him at the top. The shadow being fired two precise shots, blinding the villain and causing him to plummet downwards. He saved himself by grabbing onto the edge of one of the windows as he fell, unaware that he was now visible to Justin and the Doctor. The young knight drew his sword and charged, smashing through the window to impale the beast on his weapon. A huge explosion of energy knocked the Doctor out, his last sight being the Event Synthesiser being commandeered by its rightful guardian. The Doctor awoke in the church, to find the damaged building whole once more. Justin was gone, and in his place the Doctor was dismayed to find only a statue in memory of his sacrifice. As the Doctor read the epitaph at its base and pondered who could have put it there, he was unaware of the spectre of Merlin standing behind him.

The Doctor's reverie was disturbed by a man in cricket gear who reminded the Doctor that it was his turn to bat, and he left the church, St Justinians, and returns to his game. His mind reeled from his recent experiences, and he noted that everything appeared the same as when things started, leaving him to wonder how much of it was real, or if it was all just a dream. Watching in the shadows at the edge of the green, Shayde was informed his mission was over, and he could return home to Gallifrey.

The Doctor resumed his travels, eventually picking up a new companion in the form of American airman Angus "Gus" Goodman.

The TARDIS landed on the planet Celeste. Gus had finally decided to end his travels with the Doctor, who was now trying to get his companion back home. The Doctor told Gus that it might take a while, but he would get them there, and Gus replies that he knew this; he had faith in the TARDIS. As they wandered away from the ship a ragged figure called out a warning to them, telling them to hide or the "Gaunts" would get them. Seconds later they were caught in the spotlight of an airship, and gunfire shattered the ground around them. Armoured men (Gaunts) move towards them, and Gus and the Doctor ran, only for their escape to be blocked by a perimeter wall. Just as the Gaunts were about to gun them down, the earth gave way beneath the travellers, dropping them into a tunnel that someone had been trying to dig under the wall. The Gaunts blocked the tunnel by bulldozing rubble into it, leaving the two friends below only one choice - they had to find the other end if they want to get out.

Making their way along the tunnel, the Doctor and Gus witnessed Gaunts herding men in chains, the enslaved miners. Heading a different way, they were confronted by a giant war 'droid, the Wrekka, who opened fire on them. This noise provided the chained miners a distraction and they turned on their captors. The Doctor and Gus fled back past the point where the miners had just overpowered the Gaunts, closely followed by the Wrekka. As the robot filled the tunnels with tear gas, the Doctor responded to a miner's call for help by grabbing a dropped pistol and shooting off the man's chains. This slight delay gave the Wrekka time to catch up, and the Doctor was knocked out by a stun grenade. The Wrekka loaded the unconscious Time Lord over it's shoulder, and herded the captive Gus in front of it. The two men were taken to the office of the owner of the mines, Josiah W. Dogbolter, a humanoid frog, where they were interrogated by Hob, Dogbolter's right-hand robot. When the Doctor's answers failed to please Hob, the little robot ordered the Wrekka to behead Gus. Faced with this threat the Doctor admitted they had arrived in a time machine, a revelation that drew the personal interest of Dogbolter.

Seeing the business opportunities inherent in time travel, Dogbolter demanded to buy the TARDIS. The Doctor refused, but Hob insisted, stating that Dogbolter would pay whatever price the Doctor wants. Hating to seem inflexible, the Doctor acquiesced: he would sell the TARDIS to Dogbolter in return for half a pound...of frogspawn. Dogbolter's fury began to rise, but before it could erupt the wall of his office was demolished as the rebelling miners smashed a giant bulldozer into the side of the building. In the confusion the Doctor and Gus made good their escape. The TARDIS' departure was witnessed by one of Dogbolter's engineers, who passes on a description to his employer. Dogbolter, not ready to give up, ordered the bounty hunter known as The Moderator to track down the Time Lord.

The Moderator caught up with the travellers just as they finally reached Gus' home time on Earth. Gus was making his farewells to his friend when the armoured mercenary raced into sight and opened fire. Gus shoved the Doctor aside, saving his friend's life, but suffered fatal injuries in his stead. He fired his service revolver at their attacker, whose armour, designed to deflect particles from energy weapons, proved completely useless against primitive lead bullets. The Moderator went down, but Gus died at the Doctor's side. The enraged Time Lord picked up Gus' gun, turned to the wounded bounty hunter...and fired two shots into the killer's dislodged headpiece, whose stuck radio had been pouring out a Vera Lynn song throughout. He then took the injured Moderator into the TARDIS and dropped the man off on the nearest planet capable of giving the alien medical treatment.

The Doctor returned to Stockbridge and collected the travelling companions he left behind when the Time Lords originally asked him to wait there. Unsurprisingly he failed to tell them about just how long he had really been gone, or the fact that he picked up two new travelling companions during that time, both of whom died whilst accompanying him. While other things distracted him from his hunt for the employer of the Moderator, he did not forget his desire to find out who was behind the death of his friend. He merely puts it on hold.

The Doctor continued his travels. Eventually he and his companion of the time, Peri, were exposed to a deadly poison. Only managing to get enough antidote for one of them, the Doctor, refusing to lose another friend, administered the cure to Peri, then regenerated. His new form was more brash and bombastic than the previous. After a shaky start he and Peri became firm friends.

Peri decided to take a break from the Doctor, and he returned her to modern day New York. Alone again, he turned his attention to finding out who was behind the Moderator.

The Doctor was on a sleazy alien world tracking down information on the Moderator. Deciding that he finally had enough information to confirm that it was Dogbolter who sent the bounty hunter after him, the Doctor returned to his ship, unaware that he had picked up a tail: a shapeshifting Whifferdill detective named Avan Tarklu was following him, hoping to claim the price on his head. Reaching the TARDIS, the Doctor was attacked by two assassins, also after the money. The Doctor managed to defeat one of them, but the second pulled a gun. Tarklu, unwilling to let someone else get the reward, knocked out the gunman, although in the darkness the Doctor failed to see what happened. Still unaware of the presence of the shapeshifter, the Doctor entered his ship and set the co-ordinates for Dogbolter's base on Venus, only to be caught by surprise when Tarklu revealed himself.

The Whifferdill demanded to be taken to Venus, which the Doctor pointed out was his destination anyway. But the Time Lord was still astonished to discover that he was to be turned in for the reward money, as Tarklu revealed how much his captive was worth to Dogbolter. A short while later the TARDIS landed on Venus atop Dogbolter's corporate headquarters. A note was dispatched from inside the craft which made it's way to Hob, who read it to his master. The note stated that the bounty-hunter was willing to deliver the Doctor in return for the reward money. Dogbolter agreed, eager for revenge (by this stage, acquiring the TARDIS had become secondary to dealing with its owner). The Doctor was ushered out of the TARDIS by a bizarre figure in a heavy trenchcoat, beard and low brimmed hat. The figure handed over his prisoner and took the money off of Hob. He then departed in the TARDIS, leaving his captive with the Gaunts. Much to the guards surprise the Doctor almost immediately vanished, as he was really the shapeshifter Tarklu (and the man in the concealing clothes was the real Doctor). He and the Doctor had reached a deal whereby both got what they wanted; Tarklu the money and the Doctor a measure of payback against Dogbolter. The Doctor returned to collect his new ally, and was dismayed to find that the Whifferdill has decided to hang around for a while.

The Doctor continued to journey with his new friend (who adopted the name Frobisher), eventually collecting Peri. Time passed and Peri departed the Doctor's company more permanently.

The Doctor had dropped Frobisher off at the Whifferdill's request, as the shapeshifter wanted to prove to himself he still had what it took to be a detective. Up to his beak in a case involving a mysterious item and with Dogbolter breathing down his neck, Frobisher repeatedly turned down help from his Time Lord friend, who kept popping back to try and convince his friend to resume their journeys together. Eventually, the case solved and Dogbolter thwarted once more, Frobisher rejoined the TARDIS crew.

Frobisher eventually left the Doctor. Much later he regenerated again, taking on his seventh form. This new incarnation at first seemed a clown in many respects, but it soon transpired that he was the most manipulative of all the Time Lord's personae, the one closest to being like the Other.

Travelling in the time vortex, the TARDIS collided with a large obstacle in it's path, forcing both to land. The bump attracted the attention of a Time Warden, who fled the second he saw what the TARDIS had hit. It was the giant form of the robot known as Death's Head, who picked up the Time Lord as if he were an insect when he emerged from within the vessel. The bounty hunter felt that the Doctor had gotten in his way, and when someone did that they either had to have something worth bargaining with him or die, yes? As he was about to pulverise the Doctor, the Time Lord located a Tissue Compression Eliminator he took from his old foe the Master. Although it was a nasty device which killed people by shrinking them to a fraction of their size, the Doctor decided that desperate situations called for desperate measures, and fired on Death's Head. The effect wasn't quite what he expected; Death's Head was shrunk down to human size, but not destroyed. As the much reduced robot pursued the fleeing Time Lord, the Time Warden again appeared, but departed once more when Death's Head made it clear that helping the Doctor would get him killed.

Having managed to get far enough ahead to stop for a breather, the Doctor realised he had something he could use to bargain with his mechanoid pursuer. He offered the time displaced robot the TARDIS and a demonstration on how to fly it. Death's Head agreed, but didn't trust the Doctor and insisted he accompanies the cyborg for the first trip. The Doctor programmed the ship for Earth in the year 8162, but when he activated the controls, it was only Death's Head who vanished. The Time Warden popped his head in the TARDIS door to see what happened, and the Doctor explained that he programmed the ship to lock on the nearest mechanical organism and send it through time. As the Time Warden departed, the Doctor wondered what Death's Head will do on Earth.

The Doctor picked up a distress signal coming from the planet Ryos. He set down to help, and discovered the person who activated the signal, a medic, but was unable to prevent her falling into in the clutches of the hostile natives. Indeed, he himself was spotted by the locals, and forced to flee as they pursued him riding on the backs of their giant steeds.

Luckily for the Doctor a space salvage merchant called Keepsake also picked up the signal, and with more profit oriented and less noble aims in mind, had also set down. Keepsake spotted the Doctor running from his pursuers, and took off before the Doctor could get on board. But the Time Lord was close enough to get swept up by one of the salvage ship's landing legs, and managed to hang on until Keepsake (who couldn't gain altitude and exit the atmosphere with someone weighing down the landing strut) landed. Once on the ground again, the Doctor introduced himself and roped the reluctant pilot into his rescue mission. They flew over the alien village and dropped detonators which exploded harmlessly above the huts, distracting the locals. While the Doctor skipped off the ship and rushed inside one of the buildings to find the captive medic, the reluctant Keepsake held off the natives for a few minutes. A little later, having successfully accomplished what he set out to do, the Doctor had Keepsake drop him off by the TARDIS, leaving the salvage man to return the extremely pretty, extremely greatful, female medic to civilisation.

The Doctor was taking part in a seaside pier pantomime playing the part of the jester when Death's Head materialised on the stage behind him. The mechanoid had been hired by Dogbolter to kill the Doctor and was using the ruthless businessman's new prototype time travel pack. Before he could fire on his target, a trap door beneath the robot dropped him into the basement, and the Doctor legged it. As Death's Head hunted through the theatre for his prey, the Doctor escaped disguised as the front end of a pantomime horse. He returnd to his TARDIS and set random co-ordinates, hoping that would lose his pursuer, but before he took off Death's Head materialised inside the ship. His arrival triggered the vessel's Geiger counter, leading the Doctor to conclude that the device on the bounty hunter's back was about to go nuclear. Death's Head realised that Dogbolter had set him up and forced the Doctor at gunpoint to take him back to Dogbolter's headquarters in the 82nd century. Once there he handed his gun over to the Doctor and told him to shoot off the straps that were holding the time pack / bomb to his back. That failed to work, but an attempt by the Doctor to pick the locks on the straps did. Death's Head threw the explosive device out of the TARDIS, and they departed just before it detonated. Dogbolter and Hob were caught in the blast. The Doctor dropped Death's Head off, and the mechanoid warned him they were quits now - next time he might kill the Time Lord. The Doctor, tired of the threats, gave him back his gun and informed DH he would need it, and all his other weapons, because the Doctor would not be easy to kill. Then he added that Death's Head was doomed, because the mechanoid was incapable of change. And with this he departed, leaving the robot wondering where the Doctor had deposited him. Unknown to the bounty hunter, he was atop Four's Freedom Plaza, the home of the Fantastic Four, on Earth-616. The Time Lord had dropped him off in another dimension.

A short while later the Doctor retrieved his (then) current companion, Ace, whom he had left dinosaur-spotting in the Cretaceous.

The Doctor had been trying to make it to Maruthea, a space-port at the centre of the space-time vortex, in order to attend his friend Bonjaxx's birthday party. As he landed another TARDIS was departing, with the Doctor in that craft having just expelled some penguins who were looking for a friend of theirs. The Doctor caught sight of the dematerialising ship, although Ace did not, and he commented to his friend that anything could happen here, and frequently did. They entered Bonjaxx's bar, where the Doctor greeted his old friend. As the Daemon bar owner put the Doctor's gift on a pile of identical ones (probably given by other incarnations of the Time Lord, as they were all identically wrapped), he informed the Doctor that someone was looking for him earlier. The Doctor glanced around the bar, which was filled with a large number of familiar faces (see comments). He and Ace sat down at a table, and the Doctor mused about who would know he was present. Ace suggested it might be Death's Head, who was sitting at a nearby table counting his money. Death's Head raised his glass in acknowledgement of the Doctor. Then Ace wondered if it might be a couple who were approaching where she and the Doctor were sitting. The Doctor turned to look, and after a few seconds, recognition hit him, and he said hello to his future self. Meanwhile Ace introduced herself to the other Doctor's companion, Ria. Before things could progress further an extremely drunk Beep the Meep arrived, looking for revenge. A brawl erupted, dragging almost everyone in bar into it. Everyone except the Doctor, who continued their conversation untouched by the chaos around them. As the fight started to wind down, the Doctor retrieved their companions, thanked Bonjaxx for the party, and walked out. Each Doctor returned to their respective TARDIS, just as the fourth incarnation of the Doctor arrived at the party, materialising his ship amidst the wreckage of the bar.

Unbeknownst to most at the party they were being observed by Hob, now a monstrous behemoth obsessed with finding Dogbolter and getting revenge of Death's Head and the Doctor for exposing him to the nuclear explosion that hurtled him out of time and space. Also watching were Death's Head and his own future (Minion) incarnation, both trapped in a virtual reality. The later Death's Head managed to escape the virtual reality and return to his own body, which was nearby. Now that the (seventh) Doctor had departed Hob attacked the original Death's Head, but the newer Death's Head came to his rescue, and together they managed to destroy Hob. The seventh Doctor returns, wiped the original Death's Head memory of meeting his future counterpart, and explained that it was he who sent the new Death's Head and his partner Tuck to Maruthea, to thwart Hob. The newer Death's Head was annoyed at being manipulated but let it go under the circumstances. The Doctor offered to buy him and Tuck a drink, but the cyborg bounty hunter passed. As he got ready to depart, the Doctor extended an offer to Tuck to look him up if she ever wanted a new partner. The Doctor watched as the two of them left, then helped the original Deaths' Head back up and suggested he attend a party - such as the one in Bonjaxx's bar.

The seventh incarnation of the Doctor finally met his end after a long series of adventures, and was reborn as a younger looking, less cynical individual. This eighth incarnation had a turbulent existence, experiencing a number of bouts of amnesia, having his history rewritten by the Faction Paradox, battling Rassilon, the founder of Time Lord society, and even destroying his own homeworld Gallifrey and virtually his entire species retroactively, so that they never existed, though he later reversed this and reinstated them.

However the Time Lords were subsequently caught up in a temporal war with the Daleks, which ended when the Doctor initiated an attack that burned the Daleks out of time at the cost of his own species wiped out too. Having not expected to survive, the Doctor instead found himself the last Time Lord (and regenerated, likely as a result of this final blow in the war). Though suffering from Survivor's Guilt, the Doctor continued doing the only thing he knew, saving the universe. A new companion, Rose Tyler, gradually managed to lighten his mood, even after he discovered the Daleks had survived and the loss of his own people had been in vain. He again sacrificed an incarnation, this time to save Rose, regenerating into his current, tenth, form.

In his tenth incarnation, his relationship with Rose became more intense, to the point where she admitted having fallen in love with him, though he was unable to express these feelings in return. An encounter with the Daleks and Cybermen in London in the early 21st century resulted in Rose being trapped in a parallel world, supposedly forever separated from the Doctor. Grief-stricken, the Doctor soldiered on, gaining a new companion in medical student Martha Jones who, like Rose, developed romantic feelings for the Doctor which were not reciprocated due to the Doctor still coming to terms with the loss of Rose. After Martha's departure, the Doctor began travelling with a pepetually unemployed temp from Chiswick named Donna Noble and finally began to accept his life and move on from Rose. During his travels with Donna, a genetic clone was created from a cell taken from his hand, the result being a daughter given the name Jenny by Donna; Jenny was subsequently shot and the Doctor believed her to be dead, although unknown to him she underwent a partial regeneration and began her own adventures. The Doctor soon after encountered Prof. River Song, a woman with intimate knowledge of the Doctor in the future -- to the extent that she knew his real name. Later, an attempt by Davros and his creations, the Daleks, to destroy the multiverse resulted in the Doctor being reunited not only with several past companions, but also with Rose Tyler.

During the ensuing battle against Davros, the Doctor nearly underwent a regeneration after being shot by a Dalek, but managed to stave off the event, although in the process a "clone" was created, but one with only one heart and no regenerative abilities. After the Daleks were destroyed, Rose and the clone Doctor -- at the original Doctor's behest -- returned to Rose's parallel earth and the Doctor returned to his own reality, only to immediately face the loss of Donna Noble.

The Doctor now travels alone, refusing to travel with ongoing companions because, as he told a man named Jackson Lake, "They break my heart".

Powers and Abilities

Powers

As with other Gallifreyans, the Doctor is physically superior to normal humans in nearly ever respect, though not generally superhumanly so. He is slightly stronger than his appearance would suggest, has greater stamina and better than average agility. His senses are also slightly keener than a humans, and he is capable of noticing ripples in the patterns of time. He is capable of surviving without oxygen for short periods of time, and can even survive unprotected in the vacuum of space for several minutes. Among the more obvious physical differences between his body and that of a human is that he has two hearts. He is capable of healing most wounds given time, even regrowing severed appendages on occasion (although this can take weeks). When one body wears out or is damaged beyond repair, a Gallifreyan can regenerate, that is, rejuvenate him/herself with a new, younger body. The process is not without risk, however. The new self may experience a period of amnesia, lasting as long as a hundred years. Also, the new self often has a personality different from the old, and it may take a while for that personality to stabilize. Because the Doctor is a veteran time traveller, someone in the present may encounter any one of his regenerations; therefore, his appearance may vary from one meeting to the next. In fact, one may encounter multiple regenerations at the same time; it doesn't happen often, though, because they tend to get on each other's nerves. Perhaps due to the strain this imposes, Time Lords can only regenerate twelve times, allowing them a total of thirteen bodies.

The Doctor is moderately telepathic, another of his species' gifts. He cannot read minds, but is capable of communicating with other telepathic beings. Boosted by his TARDIS, this telepathy is able to act as an instant translator of virtually all spoken or written languages, a gift which is extended to those who travel with him; it is so effective that those using the gift are generally not even conscious of the fact that they shouldn't be able to understand the alien tongues they are listening to. Time Lords can recognise one another by their telepathic signature even when they have changed their appearances, unless one of them is deliberately masking who they are.

Regeneration (see above), fast healing, telepathy, precognition, chrono-senitivity (ability to perceive the flow of time), speed reading, able to put himself into comas.

Abilities

The Doctor's greatest ability is his intellect. He is vastly more intelligent than any human, with extensive knowledge of most sciences, and an extremely quick and adaptive mind. He is resistant to forms of mental coercion such as hypnosis, brainwashing, mind control or mind probes. Trips into his mindscape has shown that each of his earlier persona's still survives there, acting as keepers of their portions of his memories and aspects of his personality (the fifth incarnation is generally seen as the conscience of the later Doctors, for example). Future personalities have also seen to form in this mindscape, in preparation for impending regeneration - for example the Doctor's seventh persona is widely believed to have deliberately usurped the body and forced a regeneration after his sixth body suffered a minor head injury. Combined with their telepathic ability, some Time Lords can give these future forms a level of physical presence in the real world separate from their main body; the Doctor himself has demonstrated this ability on two occasions, once when he subconsciously created a poorly defined "Watcher" entity just prior to his fourth regeneration, and once when a distilled composite of all his evil and less noble traits broke loose and became the being known as the Valeyard. All incarnations of the Doctor have been seen to be skilled hypnotists too, and most have displayed a talent for disguise and mimicry.

The Doctor is a brilliant engineer, well known for his ability to build a device for any circumstances he encounters. If what he needs is not to hand he often jury-rigs temporary equipment to combat the evils he comes across. His most common tool (other than his TARDIS) is the sonic screwdriver, which can be adapted to a number of uses, most commonly to open locked doors of all varieties. It has also been seen to remotely detonate mines and swamp gas, to repel creatures with sensitive hearing, and even to remove screws. The Doctor stores a variety of useful objects in his pockets, which he has finally admitted have an extra dimension sewn into them, making them much bigger on the inside.

Each version of the Doctor has certain abilities and skills peculiar only to that regeneration. The third was a master of unarmed combat, in particular Venusian Aikido, a talent he achieved without any training. The seventh could disrupt the brain's electrons with a touch, allowing him to render people unconscious. The eighth has the ability to read the patterns of time, allowing him to pull out hints about a person's past or future from their timeline.

While the Doctor normally disdains physical violence, he has shown himself in the past to be a skilled swordsman (at least from his fourth incarnation on), having been trained by one of Cleopatra's guards. He is an expert with a crossbow (trained with William Tell), and even his first, elderly form was an able fighter, having learned wrestling from the Mountain Mauler of Montana.

The Doctor has extensive knowledge and experience in the fields of temporal mechanics, cybernetics, robotics, starship engineering, medicine, history and alien biology. He knows how to hypnotize normal humans.

Strength level

Normal Time Lord with varying amounts of exercise.

Paraphernalia

Equipment

Sonic Screwdriver. This innocent-looking device is the Doctor's favorite tool. He can reprogram it to manipulate sound and matter in nearly infinite combinations.

Transportation

Type 40 TARDIS. Short for Time And Relative Dimensions In Space, TARDIS refers to several models of space-time vessels, capable of travelling to any place or time. The interior is an extradimensional space that can be much larger than the exterior, usually with cabins, recreational areas, and a control room. It often has a chameleon circuit, which allows the user to change its outward appearance to blend in with the scenery (in keeping with the Time Lords' nonintervention policy). The Doctor's TARDIS, for instance, took on the appearance of a London police call box when he visited Earth in the 1960s, but it kept that shape for several years when the chameleon circuit malfunctioned.

Weapons

None known. The Doctor prefers using brain instead of brawn, but he is an expert swordsman, crossbowman, and wrestler. When in his third incarnation, the Doctor stated he practiced Venusian Akido

Notes

  • The Doctor first appeared on BBC Television in 1963; the original series ran until 1989, was followed by an American made-for-TV film in 1996, and then the series was revived in 2005 and continues to air as of 2009, with further broadcasts scheduled for 2010; all three productions are considered part of the same continuity.
    *So far, ten different actors have played the title role of Doctor Who, with an eleventh scheduled to take over the role in 2010: William Hartnell (1963-66); Patrick Troughton (1966-69); Jon Pertwee (1970-74); Tom Baker (1974-81); Peter Davison (1981-84); Colin Baker (1984-86); Sylvester McCoy (1987-89 and the 1996 TV movie); Paul McGann (1996 TV movie and later audio adventures); Christopher Eccleston (2005); and David Tennant (2005-2010). Matt Smith will take over the role beginning in 2010.
    * Much of the character background detailed above comes from varied sources of uncertain canonicity with relation to the television series. The BBC, owners of the franchise, have never made a firm statement as to what is considered canon, therefore all spin-offs including Marvel Comics stories, are considered a "grey area".
    *Two spin-off TV series have been produced by the BBC: Torchwood and The Sarah Jane Adventures; a third non-BBC spin-off, K-9, is scheduled to debut in 2010. None have as yet been adapted as full-length comic books by Marvel or anyone else, although a graphic novel collecting comic strips from Torchwood Magazine (published by Titan Books) was issued in 2009.

(Redirected to Scalpel article)

From Teletraan I: The Transformers Wiki

Scalpel is a Decepticon from the live-action movie continuity family.
Who's bad? Who's bad?! I'll tell you who's bad; little crab-bots that have a degree in medicine. That's bad, muthaf**kaaaaaa!!

Though Scalpel "The Doctor" looks harmless, he is very evil. He's pretty much the Decepticon version of Perceptor, but more sadistic, cruel, and smaller. He tortures people so much they die, then brings them back to life so he can do it again.

Contents

Fiction

Revenge of the Fallen film

Skitterbug's new replacement.

The Doctor went to the the bottom of the Laurentian Abyss along with Long Haul, Rampage, Ravage, Mixmaster and Scrapmetal. Using the All Spark fragment stolen by Ravage, the Doctor orders the Decepticons to kill Scrapmetal to obtain the parts to repair Megatron's body.

He later waits in the warehouse where Grindor captured and took Sam, Mikaela and Leo. Megatron orders him to extract the knowledge of the Cybertonian language Sam had been seeing. He was able to probe into his nose and brain, but demanded to take out the brain for a full scan. However, he was interrupted in his preparation to drill into Sam's brain when Bumblebee and Optimus came to the rescue and had a brief battle. He got shot later on. Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen

Toys

Scalpel (Scout, 2009)

Scalpel transforms into a microscope. In microscope mode, he isn't life sized, since he is very tiny for a microscope. However, his humanoid form is almost a perfect life-sized version of the one in the Revenge of the Fallen film.

It is often thought that Scalpel created a few of the Minicons like Ejector. (More likely destroyed some too).

Trivia

  • His fate isn't shown in the film, but the novelization and comic depict him being destroyed by Optimus Prime upon arrival.
  • When Scalpel ordered the others to kill "zeh little one", he was the smallest Transformer in the area... perhaps he has issues. Scale issues.
  • He appears to speak in a German accent; like when he says: 'We must have ze brain onla ze tabla!'
  • Sam refers to him as a "little crab robot." Harsh.
