Working for River Song Edit
Nardole first encountered the Doctor when he was told to find the surgeon. The surgeon was required as River Song needed to extract the Halassi Androvar from the head of King Hydroflax. However, Nardole accidentally found the Twelfth Doctor and brought him to Professor Song instead.
When River and the Doctor eventually escaped Hydroflax's ship with his head in a bag, Hydroflax's mechanical body turned to Nardole and wanted to extract strategic information. Although Nardole claimed to know very little of River's plans, there was only one way for Hydroflax's body to be sure, so it removed Nardole's head and attached it to its own.
Later, whilst holding a gun to Nardole's head, Hydroflax's body forced him to draw in Ramone, whose head the body took while storing Nardole's within itself.
On the Harmony and Redemption, the body pulled Nardole's head out of storage to confirm River's identity before putting it back against his protests.
After the crash of the Harmony and Redemption on Darillium, Hydroflax's body was recovered from the wreckage. As the hostile onboard computer was destroyed by the Doctor, Nardole and Ramone shared control of the body, working in a restaurant situated before the Singing Towers. When River arrived several years after the crash, Ramone was in control as Nardole was getting some "me time" inside the body, something he admitted was hard when he greeted River from inside Hydroflax's body. (TV: The Husbands of River Song)
Travels with the Doctor Edit
After spending twenty-four years with River Song, the Twelfth Doctor feared being alone, and so returned to Nardole and reassembled him, taking his head from Hydroflax and "gluing" it back on. Nardole became his companion and saw it as his duty to make sure that the Doctor was alright following her death.
Together they investigated Harmony Shoal with the help of "The Ghost". He also spent some time as the Emperor of Constantinople, in which he ruled "firmly, but wisely". (TV: The Return of Doctor Mysterio)
Although he could sometimes appear incompetent, (TV: The Husbands of River Song) he was knowledgeable and, despite not originating from Earth, knew that New York wasn't a capital city, unlike Washington DC. He was also capable of flying the TARDIS, a talent only previously displayed by River Song, Tasha Lem and Clara Oswald besides the Doctor. (TV: The Return of Doctor Mysterio)
Behind the scenes Edit
- Several characters in Doctor Who Legacy are based on Nardole, including Hydroflax with Nardole's head, which is used as both an ally an an enemy.
