The Monitor
Also known as:
Race: Logopolitan
Home Planet: Logopolis
Home Era: 1981
Appearances: DW: Logopolis
Actor: John Fraser

The Monitor was a Logopolitan and served as the interface between visitors and the other Logopolitans (whether this made him the leader or not is unknown).

The Monitor was a good friend of the Doctor, swiftly agreeing to help him by using the Logopolitans' skills in Block Transfer Computations to repair the TARDIS's chameleon circuit, but he still kept Logopolis' secret from him at all times. When the Master arrived on Logopolis in 1981 and silenced Logopolis, the secret was revealed: the Logopolitans had been staving off the end of the Universe, and now that they were dead, entropy would build up and destroy the universe.

In a final attempt to gather all information on programming the Charged Vacuum Emboitments, which had prevented the end of the Universe, the Monitor was disintegrated by the entropy. (DW: Logopolis)

Guardian of the Multiverse

Born on a moon of Oa, the positive matter doppelganger of the evil Anti-Monitor.[1]

Place of Birth
Moon of Oa



The Monitor spent his early life learning the secrets of the universe. Sensing his enemy's existence, they engaged in a million year war - ending in a draw, with both rendered imobile and unconcious.[2] They remained that way for nine billion years, until the dawn of the Crisis on Infinite Earths.

When Pariah inadvertantly freed the Anti-Monitor, the Monitor was awakened as well. He planned to protect the Multiverse. He observed Pariah trapped within his netherversal chamber.

Building a ship, the Monitor scoured the Earths for heroes he would need for his ultimate confrontation with the Anti-Monitor. He raised Harbinger from a child to serve as his assistant. Together, they gathered data on the Multiverse.

As anti-matter swept across the Multiverse, the Monitor grew weaker as each positive matter universe was destroyed.

The Monitor was killed by an Anti-Monitor controlled Harbinger, his powers being transferred to her - part of his plan to save the remaining universes.
