The Ninth Doctor was the ninth incarnation of a Time Lord that went by the name of the Doctor.
According to DWM #464, The Doctor had been a lover to his companion, the daughter of the Lord President and he had retired to Gallifrey. After some time, an unknown alien had invaded and killed all Time Lords. All except the Doctor's companion promptly retreated to the Matrix. The Doctor and the Master "sent the aliens packing", destroying the Master's final form in the process causing The Doctor to construct an android body confined to his TARDIS. The Time Lords use their power to "send the Doctor off to solve the most dangerous problems in the universe."
Arriving in the small Lancashire town called Lannet, the melancholic Doctor met a barmaid Alison Cheney. Together, they fought to save the world, and won against the silicon-based Shalka. Afterwards, Alison left with the Doctor in the TARDIS. (NOTDWU: Scream of the Shalka)
This Doctor was serious, and often angry, but wasn't averse to the odd bit of fun. He kept an android version of the Master in his TARDIS.
Habits and quirks Edit
- This Doctor was known to drink alcohol. (NOTDWU: The Feast of the Stone)
- He carried a mobile phone, taken from a charging cradle hidden behind the telephone panel in the TARDIS' police box shell. Shaped like the TARDIS, the phone was in fact part of the TARDIS itself.
- This Doctor displayed a fondness for singing, and had a repertoire of showtunes.
