"Daniel Joyce" was a renegade Time Lord who became a professor on Earth.

Biography Edit

"Joyce" told Sam Jones that, though he'd had dealings with Time Lords in the past, he was not one; he said he never understood Time Lord teachings about the sanctity of the Web of Time, instead preferred to be unbound by history or the big picture. However, he noted that his perspective had put him in trouble in the past, leading to the tattoo on his forearm.

Sometime in the 1980s, he worked as a professor at the University of California in Berkeley, working for the Advanced Research Project. However, he was fired for building a small atomic bomb as a demonstration that any lunatic could build one. Twenty years later, he started working at Berkeley again as "Daniel Joyce", a physics professor from Cornell University in Ithaca, New York. The Eighth Doctor said the name Joyce "fit him".

After the millennium he gave Professor Wagg a new beryllium chip to make up for the one that was stolen from him. In 2002, Joyce assisted the Eighth Doctor (whom he called "son") in defeating Griffin and in closing a dimensional scar. Joyce told the Doctor that he had begun experimenting with his biodata at this time, but refused to tell him why.

Joyce was married to Anne; they had a daughter in her thirties. Larna was Joyce's assistant on the Project.

The Doctor once spent a week "cleaning up" after Joyce's visit to Youkali. (PROSE: Unnatural History)

Appearance Edit

On Earth, Joyce had a tattoo on his forearm that he had tried to remove. He had a short white beard and a Scottish accent. (PROSE: Unnatural History)
