Food and drink Edit
The Three Who Rule would only drink the blood of the living. However, they killed villagers and used tubing to store their blood in the fuel tanks of the Hydrax. This was then fed to the King Vampire. (TV: State of Decay)
On their home planet, the Ogri subsisted on amino acids, but found that the blood of Earth life forms, including humans, would also suffice. This led to human sacrifices at Stonehedge. (TV: The Stones of Blood)
Other species, such as Vortisaurs (AUDIO: Storm Warning) and Androgums, (TV: The Two Doctors) did not subsist off of blood exclusively, but would consume it as part of a more varied diet. While stranded in four-dimensional space, the Eighth Doctor claimed that Vortisaurs could smell the space-time in his Time Lord blood. (AUDIO: Storm Warning)
Practical use Edit
In 2011, Jack Harkness's immortal blood was used by the Three Families to cause Miracle Day, by inserting it into both ends of the Blessing simultaneously. Later that year, the Miracle was stopped when Jack, now mortal because of Miracle Day, inserted his blood into one end of the Blessing at Shanghai, while Rex Matheson, who had a transfusion of Jack's mortal blood, inserted it into the other end in Buenos Aires. (TV: The Blood Line)
When trapped in 1941 and trying to send a message to her 21st century Torchwood Three team, Toshiko Sato cut her hand with a sharp edge of a can, and wrote on paper with her blood. (TV: Captain Jack Harkness)
The Twelfth Doctor had a gizmo able to take a sample and examine outrigh a specimen of human blood. He administered such a test on Alan-a-Dale, a human from the 12th century, and made a prognosis of several diseases and about six months of life expectancy. (TV: Robot of Sherwood)
Blood types Edit
On at least Earth, blood was organised into different types. A-positive was the most common type, with one third of humanity in 2006 being A-positive. This was exploited by the Sycorax, who used a sample of A-positive blood in Guinevere One to hypnotise all A-positives via blood control. (TV: The Christmas Invasion)
Charley Pollard's blood type was AB-negative. (AUDIO: Absolution) According to Dr Lomax, the Third Doctor's blood had a blood type unidentifiable as human blood, as shown by its platelet stickiness. (TV: Spearhead from Space)
There were many variations in blood colour.
Human[source needed], Time Lord[source needed] and Raxacoricofallapatorian[source needed] blood was red. Time Lord blood was a darker shade of red than human. (TV: The Christmas Invasion) [additional sources needed]
