Gandalf was a name used to refer to the Doctor. When the Master sent a message to Martha Jones via a television broadcast, he showed her the aged Tenth Doctor and sarcastically said, "Say hello, Gandalf." (TV: Last of the Time Lords)
Behind the scenes Edit
- Obviously, in the real world, Gandalf is a character from The Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit by J. R. R. Tolkien. Televised Doctor Who never explicitly makes this connection.
- Ian McKellen played Gandalf in Peter Jackson's The Lord of the Rings trilogy; He later provided his voice for the Great Intelligence in the Doctor Who story TV: The Snowmen.
