Biography Edit

Patience's real name was unknown. She was given the name by Tegan.

Early Life Edit

Patience was born in the House of Blyledge on Gallifrey, one of the last Womb-born Gallifreyans. She was apparently "immortal, barring accidents" and lived to be two million years old. She was a young woman when the Pythia cursed Gallifrey with sterility.

Life on Gallifrey Edit

Her husband, one of the first to explore the Time Vortex, married her upon his return to Gallifrey. She was widowed when Omega disappeared after causing Qqaba to go supernova.

Patience became the Doctor's nurse and tutor, as she had been his father's and grandfather's. They fell in love, got married and had thirteen children. When the Lord President at that time targeted the Doctor's family, the Doctor took Patience to the Machine for safety.

Exile Edit

The Machine crashed on an ice planet, where it was eventually found by human colonists in the 26th century. (PROSE: Cold Fusion)

Patience, meanwhile, regenerated shortly after the Fifth Doctor discovered her. Provost-General Tertullian Medford, believing Patience to be a threat, shot her in the head, and her body vanished. The Ferutu told the Doctor that "It's not the first time you've met her, nor will it be the last." (PROSE: Cold Fusion)

In one universe, Omega, who had control of history, took her to the anti-matter universe moments before her death.

The Doctor had a picture of her on the wall of his rooms on Gallifrey. The caption read "Death is but a door."

In this universe, Omega was able to give her the ability to regenerate. The Doctor was reunited with her there, but when he was faced with the choice of eternal happiness with her in a fictional world or returning to stop Omega, the Doctor chose to leave and help others. His departure from Omega's universe apparently caused the world to collapse, taking Patience with it. (PROSE: The Infinity Doctors)
