Originally a man with the demeanour of an eccentric, light-hearted buffoon, the Seventh Doctor darkened into a mysterious, cunning manipulator to properly combat the return of Fenric. Though he delighted in humorous reverie, it was only the surface layer of his true nature. Beneath, he was a Machiavellian genius of frightful calibre who tactfully used his mind to control nearly all situations into reaching his personal favoured outcome. Despite this, he could also show profound warmth and affection to his companions, and built a strong bond with many of them.
Initially, the Seventh Doctor travelled with his predecessor's final companion, Melanie Bush. After several adventures with Mel, she left to travel with Sabalom Glitz. The Doctor then began adventuring with Ace, a troubled teenager from the 1980s. The Doctor did his best to help heal Ace's psychological wounds by helping her come to terms with her past misdeeds and fears. Though he initially planned to take Ace home, they ultimately travelled together for several years, only for their blossoming friendship to grow increasingly dark as secrets and death tore them apart.
He later became champion to the Eternal known as Time. Although he did many good deeds while under the title of Time's Champion, his manipulative ways and amoral decisions cost him dearly. The aftermath left him tired and saddened, until he eventually began a lonely retirement from plotting. Though wearisome, he decided he would return to Gallifrey when the Time Lords needed his assistance. However, having grown complacent in his retirement, he let his guard down at the wrong time and paid for it with his life.
After many years of Machiavellian schemes and manipulation, the Seventh Doctor regenerated in San Francisco on 31 December 1999, following gunshot wounds and Dr Grace Holloway's subsequent exploratory surgery with a camera accidentally clogging a vein.
The Valeyard offered to tell the Sixth Doctor of his next incarnation, whom he claimed was filled with "plots and schemes", all to "win a game that was never his to win". (AUDIO: Trial of the Valeyard)
The Sixth Doctor attempted to avoid visiting the planet Lakertya while travelling with his companion, Mel, after he discovered an ominous source of radiation nearby. However, his future self, trapped inside the Matrix, sent him a psychic signal advising him to go to the planet regardless, as the Valeyard had previously implanted Nathemus inside his head without him knowing at the time, and, in this timeline, had succeeded in using them to replace all Time Lords with his own existence.
Upon going to Lakertya, the TARDIS ran afoul of the radiation source: focused laser beams being fired from the Rani's TARDIS. Whilst this only caused Mel to pass out, the particular radiation the Rani had been weaponising was lethal to Time Lords. This exposure mortally wounded him, ensuring the removal of the Nathemus in regeneration or death. Having retroactively thwarted the Valeyard's plan, the Sixth Doctor feared he had reached his demise, but the persona of the Seventh Doctor manifested before him and confirmed that he would regenerate. His future self, now an anomaly within the Matrix, felt the timelines changing and was reassured. The Doctor's sixth persona dissolved into his seventh, both stating, "Our future is in safe hands." (AUDIO: The Brink of Death)
A separate account suggests the Sixth Doctor, after being weakened by Chronon energy whilst fighting the Lamprey, (PROSE: Spiral Scratch) suffered a fatal head injury due to the buffeting of the TARDIS caused by the Rani's laser bombardment. (AUDIO: Zagreus)
The Doctor grew to believe that the essence of his seventh incarnation had somehow caused his predecessor's regeneration in order to bring himself into being. (PROSE: Love and War, Head Games) However, he eventually dismissed this as a delusion brought about by an increasingly fragile and scared mind, realising that such a thing was impossible as all his incarnations were the same person rather than separate consciousnesses. (PROSE: The Room With No Doors)
After the laser attack, the TARDIS was caught in the Rani's tractor beam, and was forced to make a landing on Lakertya's surface. She then boarded it along with Urak, a Tetrap, who she instructed to leave Mel but take the Doctor to her laboratory. As Urak turned over the Doctor's body, his regeneration completed, his appearance solidifying, but he remained unconscious. Awakening in the Rani's lab, the Doctor immediately recognised the Rani, but was knocked out by Urak and injected with an amnesia-inducing drug, which allowed her to trick him into assisting her with her project by pretending to be Mel.
Upon regaining consciousness again, the Doctor decided to choose a new look, noting that his new incarnation had regained a sense of haute couture. Returning to work on the Rani's machine, the Doctor found what was wrong with it, but caught the Rani on her lies when the real Mel snuck into the lab and revealed her identity.
Escaping, the Doctor discovered that several geniuses from throughout time, including Einstein, had been captured to be components for the Rani's "time brain". Forced to become the final component, the Doctor caused it backfire and explode under the strain of his new personality. Rescuing the captives, the Doctor took them back to their own times. (TV: Time and the Rani)
Bemoaning the loss of his predecessor's rainbow umbrella and the tartan scarf he chose for his new outfit, the Doctor went back to his wardrobe and obtained a new paisley scarf and whangee-handled umbrella. He also took the time to clean out the dimensionally transcendental pockets of his former self's patchwork coat, which were full of the contents of several lifetimes. He sat down to put the contents into two piles, sorting them into what was useful and what was not. While doing so, he considered the consequences of regeneration and assessed whether he was going to like his new body. (PROSE: The Useful Pile)
Travels with Mel Edit

Shortly after leaving Lakertya, the Doctor dropped Mel off in London in 2007 to investigate a strange institute where the Celestial Intervention Agency were experimenting on humans, attempting to graft TARDIS minds into their bodies. He was electrocuted and went insane. Fortunately, he had programmed the TARDIS to collect Mel and bring her to him. She helped restore his mind and sanity, before they confronted the medics of the Institute. (AUDIO: Unregenerate!)
The Doctor next travelled to Paradise Towers so Mel could enjoy its swimming pool. However, he found that the staff and residents residing within the Towers had all become either anarchist Kangs, cannibalistic Rezzies or pompous Caretakers. Accused of being the "Great Architect" that built the Towers, the Doctor was nearly killed by the Chief Caretaker, who wanted the Tower to run the way he wanted. The real architect, Kroagnon, a madman who killed anyone who moved into his creations to keep them perfect, was still within the complex, and had been using the Cleaners to murder residents. As the Doctor and Mel investigated, Kroagnon became concerned, and transplanted his disembodied mind into the Chief, going on a murderous rampage throughout the entire Towers. However, Kroagnon was pushed to his death down a lift shaft by Pex, the only male resident, who sacrificed himself to prove his bravery. (TV: Paradise Towers)
The pair then materialised aboard a ship which had been sabotaged and set to explode. Teleporting away in the nick of time, the Doctor and Mel, impersonating the murdered crew members they had encountered on the ship, found that they had arrived on Dark Space 8, a space station currently hosting the Intergalactic Song Contest. Discovering that the song contest was being used as a cover for secret peace talks between Golos and Angvia, they managed to prevent the terrorist Loozly from sabotaging the conference. (AUDIO: Bang-Bang-a-Boom!)
After meeting Emil Hartung in 1936 Cairo, (PROSE: Just War) the Doctor and Mel encountered the Quarks on the space yacht Pinto, and left in the TARDIS to find some leptonite crystals, being highly poisonous to them. They arrived on the planet Puxatornee in the year 3090 where the inhabitants were struggling to live in peace with a race called the Slithergees who arrived there as refugees some 30 years ago, but were slowly taking over. The Doctor and Mel were forced by Stuart and Reed, two inhabitants, to travel back to 3060 to kill the president of Puxatornee before she could invite the Slithergees to stay. When they returned, history had changed so that the Slithergees went to war with the Puxatornees. The Doctor and Mel became separated with Stuart and Reed and captured, but realised that an alternative Mel and Doctor were due to land in the same place as them and quickly escaped back to their TARDIS and left.
Another Doctor and Mel landed successfully and were captured by this alternative history's Lt. Stuart and Reed and interrogated before the now non-existent history's Reed and Stuart arrived to help them escape, but were killed shortly afterwards. This history's Lt. Stuart and Reed arrived and forced the Doctor and Mel to take them back 30 years so that they could prevent the president's death and make peace with Slithergees. The Doctor and Mel took them back then to see their new history, which was the first version before he and this Mel showed up. Lt Stuart and Reed ordered the Doctor to take them back to yesterday to prevent their earlier selves from time travelling, but the Doctor couldn't as that history no longer existed. The Doctor worked out that an alternative version of himself and Mel were due to land any minute and took off in the TARDIS just as their earlier selves showed up. (AUDIO: Flip-Flop)
- The events above form part of a time loop which the Doctor and Mel were able to escape, but it wasn't clear which reality was the correct version or which Doctor and Mel were the "real" ones and which were the alternative versions. Presumably, the Doctor retained knowledge of both sets of events happening after they left Puxatornee due to his being a time-sensitive entity.
On an unforeseen vacation, the Doctor and Mel found themselves part of an alien expedition to 1959 to experience the Earth's rock 'n' roll years. The Doctor discovered that the last Chimeron queen, Delta, was amongst their party, hiding with her newborn from the vicious Bannermen, mercenaries set on genocide. After defeating the Bannermen by causing their leader to fall into his own trap, he bid goodbye to Delta, her daughter and a human, Billy, who had fallen in love with her, as they departed for the Chimeron hatchery. (TV: Delta and the Bannermen)
After visiting the planet Nocturne, (AUDIO: Nocturne) the Doctor and Mel travelled to Pax Lucis, an English village occupied by Nazis. When a barrier cut the village off from the rest of the world, the Doctor discovered the Nazis had captured the Lightwanderer, a creature that fed on solar radiation. The Nazis plotted to create a barrier around Earth, which would destroy the planet. The Doctor gained an ally in the Nazis' commander, Luthor, who sacrificed himself by blowing up "the weapon", saving the Earth. (PROSE: Special Weapons)
On Iceworld, the Doctor and Mel joined Sabalom Glitz and Ace, a teenage girl from 1980s Earth, to find a treasure guarded by the "dragon" living in the caverns. The group discovered that the dragon was in fact a biomechanoid that guarded the Dragonfire, a power source sought by exiled criminal Kane to power Iceworld, his prison ship, and return to his home planet to get revenge. However, Kane committed suicide when the Doctor showed him his planet no longer existed and that there was no-one for Kane to enact vengeance upon. (TV: Dragonfire)
Realising that Ace had been deposited on Iceworld by Fenric, (TV: The Curse of Fenric) and that he could no longer avoid his responsibilities to Time, the Doctor planted an idea in Mel to stay with Glitz, with the intention to put him on the right path, and to urge the Doctor to take Ace with him. (PROSE: Head Games) He was successful, and gained a new companion, offering to take her home to Perivale "the long way round". (TV: Dragonfire)
Early travels with Ace Edit

The Doctor returned to Shoreditch in November 1963 to take care of unfinished business left behind by his first incarnation: the retrieval of the Hand of Omega. As the Doctor had anticipated, his mission was disrupted by two opposing factions of Daleks, which left him, Ace and the Counter Measures military caught in the crossfire of a Dalek civil war.
The Doctor joined forces with Counter Measures leaders, Ian Gilmore and Rachel Jensen, to end the civil war. He discovered Davros had been working behind the scenes, disguised as the Dalek Emperor, and tricked Davros into using the Hand to turn Skaro's sun supernova, (TV: Remembrance of the Daleks) destroying the planet Antalin, (PROSE: War of the Daleks) though both the Doctor and Davros believed Skaro destroyed. After defeating Davros and the rival Daleks, the Doctor manipulated the Supreme Dalek into destroying itself and returned the Hand to Gallifrey. (TV: Remembrance of the Daleks)
The Doctor left Ace in the Great Rift Valley, while he made various preparations in London. (PROSE: Prelude: Birthright) When he returned, they travelled to Terra Alpha, where citizens were being executed by the Kandyman if they did not follow Helen A's happy dictatorship. Killing her beloved pet monster in self defence, the Doctor showed Helen A that true happiness could only exist if balanced with negative emotions like sadness. (TV: The Happiness Patrol)
While exploring the TARDIS, Ace came across a room containing a window that visualised Gallifrey during the Doctor's childhood, which the Doctor had bought in his second incarnation. Realising it was a reminder of the past that he could never see again, the Doctor disposed of it and sealed off the empty storage room where it had been kept. (PROSE: uPVC)
Arriving in 20th century Windsor, the Doctor found the Nemesis statue, which he sent off into space every twenty five years, had returned. Tired of the chaos it caused, the Doctor needed to find its bow and arrow for his plan to be rid of it for good. During his search, he encountered Lady Peinforte and the Cybermen. Pretending to comply with the Cyber-Leader's orders, the Doctor sent the Nemesis straight into the Cyberman fleet, where it exploded. Unable to handle losing her statue, Peinforte merged with the Nemesis prior to its launch. (TV: Silver Nemesis) During a trip back in time to see how Lady Peinforte got to the future, the Doctor discovered a chess board in her study, and realised Fenric was responsible. (TV: The Curse of Fenric)
While travelling in the TARDIS, the Doctor received "junk mail" advertising the Psychic Circus. Attending, the Doctor was captured and sent to the Gods of Ragnarok, who kidnapped patrons for their own twisted entertainment. However, the Doctor managed to turn the tables on them when he ran out of tricks to entertain them and reflected a death beam meant for him back at them. (TV: The Greatest Show in the Galaxy)

After leaving Ace in the Cretaceous Period, (PROSE: Living in the Past) the Doctor took up residence at Ercildoune in Scotland in the 13th century, using it as a base from which to set out on various travels. (PROSE: Birthright) After reuniting with Frobisher, he eventually bid him adieu on the planet A-Lux. (COMIC: A Cold Day in Hell!)
The Doctor carried the Telphin life-seed to Earth, (PROSE: Memorial) staged a rebellion with a gang of robots at an alien supermarket, (PROSE: The Shopping Trolleys of Doom) and visited Victorian London, where he saved Ernie Wright from being arrested for a murder he did not commit. (PROSE: Birthright)
The Doctor paid a visit to Michael Faraday in 1854, where he delivered the remains of the Special Weapons Dalek. Ulrik appeared, followed by several Daleks tracking him through time. The Doctor manipulated events so that Ulrik would time travel once more and sent the Daleks after him, knowing that his previous incarnation would defeat them. (AUDIO: The Four Doctors)
The Doctor was trapped in the Determinant by the Master, along with his six previous incarnations. He was saved when the Graak defeated the Master, sacrificing all of its life force to free the trapped Doctors. (GAME: Destiny of the Doctors)
When the Charrl Queen came to Ercildoune looking for the TARDIS, the Doctor departed for good, visiting the court of Elizabeth I, and persuading the Queen to send John Dee on a fool's errand. (PROSE: Birthright)
The Doctor decided to take a long overdue vacation to the planet of Ormelia, and materialised the TARDIS aboard a spaceship orbiting the planet. There, the Doctor befriended a genetically reconstructed creature named Vilgreth, but discovered that his ship travelled through space by devouring planets, and was forced to stop him. (AUDIO: Last of the Titans)

Ace and the Doctor were forced to land in a pocket universe built on 23 November, 1963, where they began to see images of the past and future of the TARDIS and discovered his past incarnation and Peri, who had also been brought there. After investigating further, he discovered the Master in the pocket universe, and found that he was the one behind his TARDIS malfunctioning and him being brought there. The Master had planted a bomb inside the humanoid Bob Dovie that would make a thought inside his head reality. When Bob entered the Fifth Doctor's TARDIS, he uttered the phrase "this is impossible," causing his TARDIS to explode across its own timeline.
The Sixth Doctor was able to bring the eight versions of the Doctor brought there together, using the dimensional stabiliser on the TARDIS owned by the Time Lord Straxus, and together the Doctors stopped the reality bomb from going off by showing Bob the inside of the TARDIS a year before, meaning that he would not consider it as impossible in 1963. Afterwards, the First Doctor turned off the automatic distress actions, which had brought all of the Doctors to the pocket dimension and had triggered the TARDIS' destruction, making it so none of that had happened.
Working with UNIT, the Doctor reunited with his old friend, the Brigadier, in an adventure in which he met people from an alternate Earth who mistook him for Merlin. Taking advantage of this, the Doctor found the sorceress Morgaine was waiting for a final battle with King Arthur. However, the Doctor discovered that Arthur was dead, and informed Morgaine, preventing her from setting off a nuclear missile by using her sense of honour. (TV: Battlefield)
After the TARDIS was attacked by a Kryian missile, the Doctor found his ship was locked onto Christmas Eve. After spending Christmas in 1889 and 2023, he and Ace travelled to Eastern Africa in 3181 to fix the problem, where they helped humanity to recover from an alien invasion and restored their faith in Christmas. (PROSE: Instead of You)
After learning of Ace's guilty conscience for burning down a haunted mansion, the Doctor brought her to the mansion a hundred years before she would burn it down. He found a temporarily imprisoned and dangerous entity called Light, who planned to destroy the Earth in a childish fit because the world had evolved while it was trapped, making the catalogue it had compiled centuries earlier worthless. The Doctor used Light's childish logic to convinced it to destroy itself, as it had been evolving as well. (TV: Ghost Light)
The Doctor accidentally caused Ace to meet and interact with her grandmother and infant mother during a trip to 1943. The Doctor revealed that he knew Ace's arrival and Peinforte's time travelling were arranged by Fenric, an evil entity he encountered before and trapped in another dimension; it escaped thanks to manipulations. The Doctor convinced the Ancient One, one of Fenric's servants, to kill Fenric's host in revenge for trying to trick it into creating his hellish future. However, Ace's faith in the Doctor held back the Ancient One's, forcing the Doctor to temporarily break her faith in him. (TV: The Curse of Fenric)
After defeating Fenric, the Doctor attended a school reunion at Hexen Bridge, as he was one of the school governors. He was kidnapped by Jerak, the other half of the Malus war machine, which he had defeated in his fifth incarnation. After being turned into a walking bomb and manipulated to perform tasks that brought misery to Jerak's enemies, the Doctor stopped Jerak's plan to poison the world's water supply with a chemical that would turn the human race into insane murderers, and Ace destroyed Jerak's gateway domain, destroying him. (PROSE: The Hollow Men)
Soon after, the Doctor took Ace home to Perivale, where Kitlings had been spotted and people had been disappearing. The Doctor soon found the Master had been trapped and infected on Cheetah World and was trying to escape by bringing people there to partially change into Cheetah People, and then escape to Earth. After saving Ace and her friends, the Doctor fought with the Master, by eventually refused to fight when he saw the destruction and around him and was returned to Earth, while the Master was left on the exploding planet. (TV: Survival)
At some point, Ace told the Doctor about how, working as a waitress, she gave a man in a chicken costume a box of fries. The Doctor, knowing what the creature was, was privately amused by this. (PROSE: Anti-Matter with Fries)
The Doctor's original plan for Ace involved trying to shape her mind to the point that she would be able to attend the Time Lord Academy. The Doctor's manipulation of her was ultimately for the benefit of Time Lord observers who were assessing her potential. The assessment took the form of a journey to Moscow and London in 1967, involving the Ice Warriors. Ultimately, however, she refused this academic opportunity and continued to travel with the Doctor. (AUDIO: Thin Ice)
Raine Creevy Edit
The Doctor spent an undisclosed time visiting a young girl named Raine Creevy when she was a child before travelling to her future. In 1989, she was now a skilled thief who the Doctor recruited to steal a sword for him while he sent Ace to Russia on a secret mission. He plotted to use the sword to ward off an alien incursion called the Metatraxi. After the Metatraxi were defeated, the Doctor offered Raine the chance to travel in the TARDIS. (AUDIO: Crime of the Century)
The Doctor, Ace and Raine subsequently travelled to Margrave University in 2001, (AUDIO: Animal) and went undercover on the Space Vessel Vancouver, where they again encountered the Metatraxi. (AUDIO: Earth Aid)

After Raine left, the Doctor next followed a distress signal to Prague, where he met Elizabeth Holub, the granddaughter of his former UNIT associate, Liz Shaw, and allied with her to stop a young girl called Napev, who had the ability to create whatever she wanted, from launching a series of vicious attacks on the city to avenge the death of her father. (PROSE: Fable Fusion)
The Doctor and Ace spent Christmas with wheelchair-bound David Merrison, whose family had disappeared. Investigating, the Doctor learnt an alien creature was feeding on David's fear of being taken, and found the creature's skull. He destroyed it, killing the creature, and located the Merrison family to a spaceship in another dimension. (PROSE: But Once a Year)
On a holiday to the seaside, the Doctor and Ace met a fortune-teller called Hiram White, who was actually an ancient alien from the moon of Crammond with an addiction to health pills. Instead of returning him home, the Doctor respected Hiram's decision and supplied his addiction. (PROSE: One Card for the Curious)
The Doctor and Ace then encountered the Cybermen in the Blitz, (PROSE: Illegal Alien) and the Valeyard who was posing as Jack the Ripper, feeding the Dark Matrix. He launched an attack on all of the Doctor's lives, but the Seventh Doctor managed to shield himself, at the cost of his memories. Now an amnesiac cardsharp called "Johnny", he managed to regain his memory, and convinced the Dark Matrix that the Valeyard was using it. Confronting him, the Dark Matrix killed the Valeyard with a blast of energy. (PROSE: Matrix)
While in the TARDIS, Ace found some overdue library books which the Doctor explained were from the library on Kar-Charrat. They travelled to the planet in order to return the books. There the Doctor met an old friend, the chief librarian Elgin, who raised his suspicions when he stated that they had managed to ward off Dalek attacks. The Daleks had indeed not been warded off-using time corridor technology to deploy Daleks on every planet in the sector, they had then waited hundreds of years to capture a time-sensitive in order to penetrate the library's defences and allow them to access to the wetworks facility. The Doctor's arrival had revived them, and they set about capturing and creating a duplicate of Ace, which — replete with the DNA tag given to her by Elgin — would be able to get through the library's barriers. They successfully download the entire knowledge of the Universe into a Dalek test subject. However, at the conclusion of the download, the test subject went out of control. The Doctor, fearful for Ace's life, was forced to surrender. The Daleks took him to the facility, and connected him to the machinery, using his mind to process the data and create a second test subject. Trying to allow the Doctor to re-enter the surrounded TARDIS, the Kar-Charratans, natives who Elgin had imprisoned within the wetworks facility to create a superior machine, killed the Daleks surrounding the time machine, but the duplicate Ace, impervious to the rain, arrived and threatened to kill Elgin. However, the chief cataloguer Prink rushed to his aid and attacked the duplicate, destroying it at the cost of his own life. The Doctor proceeded to the Wetworks with the intention of destroying it, having Ace pretend to be her own duplicate to get past the Daleks. At the facility they encountered the Dalek test subject and the Dalek Supreme arguing. Having obtained something of a conscience, the test subject refused to destroy the wetworks facility by the Supreme's orders. The Dalek Supreme retreated to its mothership, leaving the Special Weapons Dalek to kill the test subject, but Ace's Nitro-9 succeeded in blowing up the machinery of the Wetworks, and the Kar-Charratans managed to escape. (AUDIO: The Genocide Machine)
Drawn to a newspaper report regarding a disappearance, the Doctor travelled to a British beach, where he defeated the Ogri, a monster made of sand that had been killing sailors since the 19th century. (COMIC: Seaside Rendezvous)
The Doctor and Ace took a break from their adventures in Chelmsford in 1645 to make repairs to the TARDIS. They saved a young girl called Tilly Brewer from a gang of witch hunters and learned she had been infected by the Skeeth, a parasite that transforms its victims into fire breathing beasts. As her transformation completed, the Doctor materialised the TARDIS around her, cutting off her Skeeth infection. However, he knew that if she left the TARDIS, her Skeeth self would return. He built a cottage in the woodlands of his TARDIS, allowing Tilly to spend the rest of her life peacefully inside his spaceship. (PROSE: The Devil Like a Bear)
Tracking a rift in space and time, the Doctor and Ace visited the Epajaenda Sphere, a planet to be turned into a toxic wasteground. They joined the frog-like Travellers, a tribe who lived on the Epajaenda three hundred years ago, regain the rights of their homeworld from a businessman called Abraham-Derris Cuthbertson. The Doctor helped to open a water rift above Epajaenda, which made it a habitable planet. However, their plan was opposed by a swarm of deadly rats, forcing Cuthbertson to sacrifice his life to close the rift. (PROSE: Last Rites)
The Doctor, recalling that Edvard Munch's The Scream was about to disappear under "mysterious circumstances", decided to travel to the gallery housing it. He planned to add it to his collection since it was part of established history that it would be stolen. He and Ace arrived on a barren, dusty planet and discovered the painting had been inhabited by the Warp Core, which was animating the planet's dust. They discovered the Master, in the form of a previous incarnation, was also present: his Trakenite body had been destroyed by the Core, and he had reverted to his previous decaying form. He planned to unleash Warp Core on the universe as an animated planet, but the Doctor, Ace and Bev, who they re-encountered, managed to stop him. Ace remarked that the Doctor should save them trouble and start collecting stamps. (AUDIO: Dust Breeding)
The Doctor attempted to prevent a Dalek invasion on the planet Malite, but failed. He was framed for treason by Premier Mecado, who was allied with the Daleks, but Mecado was killed by the Daleks, and the Doctor's innocence was proven by Ace and Colem Litchen, who had been investigating Dalek Wars. (PROSE: Private Investigations)
The TARDIS materialised in Colditz Castle where the Doctor was shot in the shoulder and Ace was captured. The TARDIS was confiscated by the Nazis and the Doctor was questioned about it. Soon after, a woman named Elizabeth Klein arrived and demanded that the Doctor hand over his TARDIS key. The Doctor, fearing for Ace's safety, did so, struggling to work out how Klein knew about his TARDIS. He was informed that he was to be placed in Klein's custody. He discovered that Klein had forged her identification papers and travelled to this parallel time period in the Doctor's TARDIS to capture him and take him back to her alternative future, so he could teach her to fully control the TARDIS. In her divergent timeline, the Germans won the war, the Doctor's TARDIS was discovered and he was killed. Klein accessed the TARDIS flight logs to travel to Colditz and planned to learn about the TARDIS before the Doctor died. The Doctor refused, but Klein threatened Ace's life. They discovered that the TARDIS in which Klein had arrived had dematerialised, and she was forced to use the TARDIS the Doctor and Ace arrived in. Back at Colditz Castle, the Doctor manipulated Kurtz, a duty-bound officer, into exposing Klein, and prevented Klein's timeline from ever coming about by locating the CD-player Ace had left behind. Kurtz, attempting to gain access to the TARDIS whilst it was dematerialising, was torn apart on a molecular level before the Doctor and Ace's eyes. Klein escaped, now an anomaly. (AUDIO: Colditz)
After the traumatic events of Colditz, Ace asked go somewhere where she could relax. She and the Doctor visited Ibiza where a strange DJ called Gabriel who believed that he was an angel was working together with his brother Jude in a rave club. The pair discovered that they were using powers from another dimension to raise an army out of the young people who came to party at their club to fight a war between their people and a military race. The Doctor stopped Gabriel, but Jude, traumatised at the loss of his brother, proceeded to expedite their plans. The Doctor was forced to stop him as well. During this adventure, Ace encountered her previously unknown long-lost brother Liam, and developed a bond. (AUDIO: The Rapture)
Hex joins Edit

On 2021 Earth, the Doctor and Ace investigated signs of "xenotech" - alien technology - in use at St Gart's Brookside Hospital in London. Here, whilst combating a Cyberman threat, he encountered Thomas Hector Schofield, "Hex", the son of Cassandra Schofield, whom he had met in his sixth incarnation. Following their adventure with the Cybermen, Hex joined the Doctor and Ace in their travels. (AUDIO: The Harvest)
After battling the Cragvar, (AUDIO: Afterlife) the group went for breakfast on London's South Bank. They soon discovered that both London and the TARDIS weren't real. Voyaging into the depths of the fake TARDIS, the Doctor found that he and his companions had been entrapped by a vortex predator. They eventually located the real TARDIS and escaped back into the real universe. (PROSE: Six Impossible Things Before Breakfast)
The Doctor stood for presidency on Colony 34. The reigning leader was trying to avoid an election for fear of losing and was using his influence to discredit the parties that stood against him. The Doctor faked his own death and with the help of Ace and Hex and managed to expose everything the government had been trying to keep secret, including the deaths of colonists whose bodies were used as fuel. (AUDIO: LIVE 34)
The TARDIS materialised in a wood, where Ace accidentally fell into a lake. Taking her to a nearby cabin, the Doctor discovered a series of murders amongst the group of people staying there, and that the people there were experimenting with time. 10 years earlier, a girl had been killed as a result of a misdiagnosis, and the scientists were attempting to send a message back to warn their past selves. This interference with the timeline caused the girl to become alive again in a state of zombie-like limbo. To correct their mistake, the Doctor travelled back and undid the damage. (AUDIO: Night Thoughts)
The Doctor sent Ace and Hex to Monte Carlo in 1969 to recover the Veiled Leopard diamond. (AUDIO: The Veiled Leopard) While Ace and Hex were in Monte Carlo, the Doctor went Világ, where he visited Evelyn Smythe, and revealed that he was travelling with Hex, who was in fact "Little Tommy", Cassie Schofield's son. (AUDIO: Thicker than Water)
The Doctor, Ace and Hex arrived in Egypt in 1902, and encountered a young Time Lady named Jane who had been stranded for centuries on Earth trying to find her TARDIS. She had accidentally transgressed the laws of time by becoming a god to the locals. The Doctor informed Jane that her TARDIS was dying, prompting her to fly her TARDIS into the sun, rejecting the Doctor's offer to help save her life. (AUDIO: False Gods)
The Doctor travelled to the island of Mendavelia in the year 3380 to help solve a code, but fell into a trap laid by the Order of Simplicity. Infected with a virus that drained the intelligence from the brain, he used the intellect of primitives to free himself. (AUDIO: Order of Simplicity)
The TARDIS crew attempted to track down an alien artefact that forced others to tell the truth. While Ace encountered her mother as a young child, the Doctor and Hex traced Joey Carlisle, the person who had stolen the artefact from the Forge. (AUDIO: Casualties of War)
The Doctor next landed in Antarctica where he encountered a being from a dimension made out of language and communication - Nobody No-One, a Word Lord. No-One followed him into a top secret facility and proceeded to cause chaos until the Doctor captured him inside a book, only for him to escape when a soldier shouted "Nobody move!". (AUDIO: The Word Lord)
The Doctor, Ace and Hex landed on Bliss, a jungle planet under Dalek attack. While Ace and Hex helped in the battle with the Daleks, the Doctor discovered that a local professor had combined larvae and Piranha-locust DNA to create a new species known as the Kiseibya. The Kiseibya fed on metal and were created to save mankind from the Daleks, but quickly became uncontrollable. They decimated the Dalek forces easily. The Doctor planned to blow up the station and slaughter this new species himself. In the end, Beth Stokes, a former prisoner of the Daleks, stayed behind to finish the job. (AUDIO: Enemy of the Daleks)
The TARDIS next landed in the Crimea in 1854, where Hex spent a considerable period providing assistance to the wounded and encountered Florence Nightingale. During this adventure, the exterior shell of the TARDIS was shattered and reformed, minus its regular colouration (as it would remain white until it managed to gradually regenerate its shell fully) after the HADS was activated by a direct hit from cannon fire. Hex was fatally shot, prompting the Doctor and Ace to return to St. Gart's. (AUDIO: The Angel of Scutari) Arriving in 2025, the Doctor managed to successfully perform surgery on him. During their visit they became involved in an adventure where the Doctor re-encountered Nimrod and the Forge, resulting in Hex discovering that the Sixth Doctor had been witness to his mother's death. This revelation prompted him to leave the TARDIS crew. (AUDIO: Project: Destiny)
Tracking down a Time Lord casket in which he found the unconscious body of an older version of his current self, the Doctor discovered that he had somehow imprisoned Nobody No-One. Nobody escaped, and the Doctor sacrificed himself to stop him. Resurrected by Ace and his future self, the Doctor defeated Nobody with the help of Evelyn Smythe, who convinced Hex that it wasn't the Doctor's fault that his mother died. After Evelyn died, Hex decided to rejoin the TARDIS crew. (AUDIO: A Death in the Family)
Battling the Elder Gods Edit
Shortly afterwards, the TARDIS materialised in Alaska in the 1930s, due to the Doctor's interest in a strange ice formation. They soon met an expedition team looking for an ancient chamber containing horrors from the dawn of time. The Doctor and Ace became separated from the rest of the group and were presumed dead. In reality, they had arrived at what appeared to be an island psychiatric facility and met C. P. Doveday, a poet who claimed to live on the island, who took them to the person in charge. There, the Doctor learned that the entire facility was in fact not a psychiatric complex, but a prison for the most dangerous being on planet Earth-a dormant Karnas'koi. (AUDIO: Lurkers at Sunlight's Edge)
The Doctor left Hex and Ace for a while, growing a Black TARDIS, and began travelling alone in it, encountering the Sandminer robots onboard the cargo ship Lorelei, (AUDIO: Robophobia) and meeting a bio-unit based on Nostradamus. (AUDIO: The Doomsday Quatrain) Eventually, he met a new companion, Sally Morgan, on Earth in the year 2020, whilst trying to defeat the Elder God known as the Mi'en Kalarash. (AUDIO: House of Blue Fire) After a while, Lysandra Aristedes joined them in the Black TARDIS, where they continued to battle Elder Gods. (AUDIO: Black and White, Project Nirvana)
During his travels in the Black TARDIS, he sent the White TARDIS, containing Hex and Ace, to 1989 in an alternative timeline. He gave them the mission to investigate the Elder Gods, who created this timeline. They managed to defeat the Elders Gods, and restore the original timeline, just in time for a Black TARDIS to arrive and retrieve them. (AUDIO: Protect and Survive)
When they entered the Black TARDIS, they discovered Sally and Lysandra already there. They realised that the Doctor was travelling in both TARDISes, simultaneously. Hex, Ace, Sally and Lysandra then arrived in 5th century Denmark, where they met Beowulf, and faced an alien called Garundel. They discovered that the Doctor had previously visited this precise location, but had been kidnapped. After following the Doctor's clues and instructions, they retrieved an artefact called Weyland's shield, restored the original TARDIS and destroyed the Black TARDIS, and headed off to locate the Doctor. (AUDIO: Black and White)
The TARDIS crew located the Doctor in a pocket universe which was under the control of Fenric. After releasing the Doctor, it was revealed that Fenric was playing a game against another Elder God called Weyland for control of Weyland's shield, which could grant omnipotence to an Elder God. The TARDIS crew discovered that they had been pawns of Weyland, used to help him win the game against Fenric. Hex was destined to become the quintessential pawn in Weyland's plan, prompting him to prevent his death after he was shot in Scutari. Hex managed to banish Weyland and stop the game, but became possessed by Fenric. He sacrificed himself to prevent Fenric from permanently taking control and gaining power, saving the Doctor, Ace, Sally and Lysandra. (AUDIO: Gods and Monsters)
After Hex Edit
Troubles with the Timewyrm Edit
After receiving a warning from his fourth incarnation about a Time Lord demon called the Timewyrm, the Doctor, and Ace traced a time anomaly to the kingdom of Uruk in Ancient Mesopotamia, where they joined an expedition, led by Gilgamesh, ruler of Uruk, to a kingdom called Kish. The Doctor was kidnapped by followers of Ishtar, the "goddess of Love and War", but was saved by Ace. Having learnt that Ishtar, a stranded alien, planned to influence the whole world using radio transmitters, he sent Ace off to investigate scorpion-like Zuqaqip god Utnapishtim, before entering her inner sanctum. He was captured by her, with the intention of stealing his mind in order to gain the knowledge of time travel. After Kish was attacked by a city-like spaceship operated by Ace and his Uruk allies, the Doctor tricked Ishtar into infecting herself with a Zuqaqip virus. She survived, infiltrating his TARDIS and torturing his mind. The Doctor trapped her in the secondary control room and jettisoned it into the time vortex. After uniting Kish and Uruk, the Doctor was horrified to discover that Ishtar had survived and was now a living time machine: he had created the Timewyrm. Realising her powers could destroy time completely, the Doctor set off on a mission to locate and destroy her. (PROSE: Timewyrm: Genesys)
In pursuit of the dangerous creature he had created, the Doctor piloted the TARDIS to an divergent version of 1950s Earth from a timeline where the Nazis had won World War II and were now rulers of the whole planet. They were accused of being resistance fighters and arrested by Anthony Hemmings. Escaping imprisonment, and with the TARDIS once again in the possession of Adolf Hitler and Nazis, he witnessed a Reichsinspektor General being stabbed to death and given an incriminating package before he died. Posing as the General, the Doctor began working with General Otto Strasser in order to gather information on the new timeline. A vengeful Anthony exposed both his and Ace's true identities. Escaping in the TARDIS, the Doctor went to 1926 and gained Hitler's trust by giving him the faith to begin World War II. He then travelled to 1936, where he was hailed by the Nazis and Hitler as a "hero", becoming his personal advisor. Realising the Timewyrm was controlling Hitler's mind to change history, the Doctor visited him at points when the Nazis invaded various countries across the world. However, he discovered amongst Hitler's closest allies was his old Time Lord enemy, the War Chief. He stopped the War Chief from stealing his remaining regenerations, prevented him from killing Ace as a human sacrifice and foiled his plan to build a Nazi army to conquer the galaxy.
After destroying the War Chief and his new "War Lords", the Doctor visited Hitler in 1940 and drove the Timewyrm out of his body, banishing her into the time vortex. However, he knew that he had only weakened her - and she would return for revenge. (PROSE: Timewyrm: Exodus)
At the end of their final battle, the Doctor banished the Timewyrm's power into dormancy and erased its memories. Its 'essence', however, was implanted in the mind of a genetically-engineered infant who had no upper brain functions before the transfer. He gave the baby to Emily and Peter Hutchings, who lived in Cheldon Bonniface, and asked they name her Ishtar. (PROSE: Timewyrm: Revelation)

The Doctor and Ace were reunited with the Brigadier whilst investigating a mysterious crop circle. After defeating conceptual beings from another dimension, he entered the dreams of the hospitalised Ethan Amberglass and built him a mindscape to explore during his last year of life in a coma. (PROSE: The Algebra of Ice)
After taking Ace to the funeral of her friend Julian Milton in Perivale, the Doctor went to the planet Heaven in 2570. There, he helped Professor Bernice Summerfield open the way to a Heavenite observatory where he deciphered the writing on the telescope and a note stored inside a dead Heavenite's body. While entering Puterspace, he was attacked by the Vacuum Church, working in league with the Hoothi, and put inside his worst memory from the slow death of his third incarnation. With the help of the psychic Traveller, Christopher, the Doctor and Ace were freed.
Realising the danger the falling Hoothi fibres would cause, the Doctor ordered Benny to quickly unearth the observatory, which could detect otherwise invisible Hoothi spheres. Knowing the pyrokinetic, Jan Rydd, whom Ace had fallen in love with, had been affected by the fibres, the Doctor ordered him to leave Ace behind while he went to the sphere himself. Ace followed nonetheless and realised the Doctor's plans. The Doctor, after using Brother Phaedrus of the Vacuum Church to summon the sphere to Puterspace, used Christopher to send a message to Jan on board so he could ignite the sphere.
Ace finished off the last Hoothi herself, while the Doctor ordered Brother Phaedrus to leave. Ace left the Doctor, disgusted that he could sacrificed her lover to save billions. Benny agreed to travel with the Doctor in time and space, under the condition that he didn't treat her the way he did Ace. Benny and the Doctor released the last of Heaven's owls on 20th century Earth. (PROSE: Love and War, AUDIO: Love and War)
He and Benny travelled together for a while, meeting Kadiatu Lethbridge-Stewart (PROSE: Transit) and Chelonians, (PROSE: The Highest Science, AUDIO: The Highest Science) and battling the Yssgaroth. (PROSE: The Pit) They also encountered Sontarans (COMIC: Pureblood), Davros, and his previous incarnation. (COMIC: Emperor of the Daleks!)
Ace rejoins Edit
Ace went to fight in a war, (PROSE: Love and War) but reencountered the Doctor three years later. Older and battle hardened, she struggled to get along with Benny and the Doctor after beginning to travel with him again. (PROSE: Deceit)
Separated from his companions, the Doctor met Ruby Duvall and fought the Cybermen at the South Pole. (PROSE: Iceberg) Benny and Ace, meanwhile, were stranded in early twentieth-century London and on an alien planet, respectively. (PROSE: Birthright)

(COMIC: Uninvited Guest) After a long period of travels, Ace left to become Time's Vigilante. (PROSE: Set Piece)
Alone with Benny Edit
After watching Benny grieve for her lost love, (PROSE: Sanctuary) the Doctor physically changed himself into a human called John Smith and lived for a time as such, even falling in love with a human woman called Joan Redfern. However, he sacrificed this persona and his chance of a relationship with Joan to stop the Aubertides. (PROSE: Human Nature)

After avenging a murder, the Doctor was prevented from killing her when Benny judged her fit for rehabilitation.(PROSE: The Also People)
The Doctor, Chris and Roz stayed for a time in the Quadrant, where they discovered an N-Form bent on wiping out every human being who could potentially produce offspring featuring the traits of a Vampire. (PROSE: Damaged Goods, AUDIO: Damaged Goods)
Champion's end Edit
As his life neared its end, he continued to encounter many past friends, not always in a positive fashion, such as Peri Brown, (PROSE: Bad Therapy) Liz Shaw, (PROSE: Eternity Weeps) and Romana. (PROSE: Lungbarrow)
On his final adventure as Time's Champion, the Doctor returned to Gallifrey. There, he was tasked with transporting the ashes of the Master, who had been captured and executed on Skaro, to Gallifrey, as the Master's final request. Chris decided to stay behind, choosing to continue his travels alone using a Time Ring given to him by Romana II. (PROSE: Lungbarrow)
After reconfiguring the console room, the TARDIS brought the Doctor once more to Artaris where he encountered Lord Sutton, the latest incarnation of the Warlord Grayvorn. Grayvorn had been reduced to a spirit after their last encounter and had managed to possess a new host before sculpting Excelis once more into a war-driven dictatorship. He used the souls of the rebels of Excelis to power his “meat puppet” army. The Doctor used the Relic to free the souls, but Grayvorn activated a self-destruct which would destroy Artaris. The Doctor tried to help, but was forced to escape alone, leaving the people of Artaris to die in the explosion. (AUDIO: Excelis Decays)
Klein returns Edit
Not long afterwards, the Doctor, travelling alone, re-encountered Elizabeth Klein, who was living in British Kenya during the Mau Mau Uprising in 1953. Despite their animosity, they worked together to solve a mystery involving an alien virus and prevented the Cheylis plot to use Earth as a testing ground for biological warfare. The Doctor, knowing Klein would continue to pose a threat to history, insisted she accompany him on his TARDIS travels so that he could keep an eye on her. (AUDIO: A Thousand Tiny Wings)
Immediately upon entering the TARDIS, Klein recounted what caused her to use the TARDIS that resulted in the destruction of her timeline. It turned out that the Seventh Doctor of the alternate timeline had orchestrated his regeneration into his Eighth incarnation to manipulate Klein into using the TARDIS and re-rewriting history. (AUDIO: Klein's Story)
After travelling together for a while, the Doctor and Klein arrived on a planet inhabited by the insectoid Vrill, who communicated through smell. In the midst of a war, Klein took her chance for revenge against the Doctor, stealing his TARDIS and abandoning him on the planet. (AUDIO: Survival of the Fittest)
Klein used the Doctor's TARDIS to rewrite history so that the Nazis had won the war. She captured this new timeline's Doctor and imprisoned him on the Moon. She helped the Galactic Reich conquer the Daleks and Sontarans and any other potential threats by travelling in time and informing the past. While visiting the Doctor, trying to find out where this version's TARDIS was, Klein, along with the rest of the Moonbase, came under attack by the Selachians. The Doctor of this timeline had sent them there and supplied them with the necessary technology to destroy the base. Klein discovered that this alternate Doctor had retained the memories of her version's life as well. The two of them escaped in his TARDIS where the Doctor informed her that the Time Lords had tried her and found her guilty. She was erased from history, along with the alternate Doctor, restoring things to their correct order. Afterwards, the original Doctor paid a visit to UNIT, where he encountered a different version of Klein who was now working there. (AUDIO: The Architects of History)

The Doctor teamed up with all of his other incarnations to save Gallifrey from destruction at the end of the Last Great Time War, but lost all memory of the event due to the timelines not being synchronised. (TV: The Day of the Doctor)
Travelling to the Forge in the hope of shutting it down once and for all, the Doctor found his sixth incarnation assisting Nimrod, and reluctantly helped the Forge fend off a telepathic alien incursion. His predecessor's arm was lost in the battle, confirming the Doctor's belief that this Doctor was a fake. The fake Doctor explained that Nimrod used DNA samples from the real Doctor when they last met to create clones, in an attempt to learn the secrets of regeneration. The clone was rapidly deteriorating, like his two "brothers" had before him. The Doctor revealed to the clone that he had glimpsed suppressed memories during their telepathic contact, prompting him to discover a wing of the base full of decrepit and dying clones. Struggling to cope, the clone initiated the Forge facility's self destruct, allowing the Doctor only five minutes to escape, and killing everyone who remained inside the base. (AUDIO: Project: Lazarus)
The Doctor travelled to Pelachan where he discovered an artefact known as the Hand of All, an object that contained a living story. The Doctor took it, before going to combat a regenerated version of Nobody No-One, trapping him in the Hand inside his mind. He then travelled to the Forge and locked himself in a Time lord sarcophagus, and waited until he was found by Ace and his younger self. As he lost control of the Hand, he warned them that Nobody No-One would return, and fell comatose. Afterwards, upon waking, he discovered his younger self had died defeating the Word Lord. He took it upon himself to bring Hex to Evelyn, setting up circumstances to enable his resurrection, before he faded out of existence. (AUDIO: A Death in the Family)
After "burning back into existence" (AUDIO: A Death in the Family) on the planet Perfugium, it was revealed that the Doctor had made a deal with Death by which she would allow the Master to live a normal life for ten years, but at the period's conclusion, the Doctor was required kill him. On Perfugium, ten years in the Master’s future, he found his old friend, amnesiac, entertaining guests. Jade, the Master’s housekeeper, revealed herself as Death, and told everyone of their deal. The Doctor couldn't fulfil his side of the bargain, and made another deal with Death after witnessing the Master’s friend Victor killing his wife. If the Master could make the right decision, then they’d be free, but the Master struggled when he was offered the deal by Death – his life, as her servant, or the life of Victor’s wife Jacqueline whom he was in love with. In the end, Death took the Master and sent the Doctor away to face punishment for not holding up his end of their bargain. His task: to assassinate an innocent. He travelled to the destination and encountered a sniper about to take his shot, interrupted him and recounted his adventure. The Doctor refused to kill his target, but discovered that the sniper was in fact Death, who had known he wouldn’t be able to. Before departing, Death proclaimed that they would meet again, and that she knew his inevitable fate. Alone, the Doctor vowed to save his old friend, one day. (AUDIO: Master)
The Doctor visited the Capital City of of Callisto, Valhalla. Whilst there, he attempted to investigate corruption in this supposedly perfect society, given independence and autonomy after previously being an Earth colony planet. (AUDIO: Valhalla)
Millions of years BC, Ice Warrior Arakssor led like-minded Ice Warriors in an attempt to take over the Martian government. The Doctor stopped him with the help of Geldar, and Arakssor and his band of war criminals were sentenced to life imprisonment in Antarctica. During a skirmish in the prison, an Ice Warrior attacked the prison trying to escape, trapping everyone in suspended animation beneath the ice. In 2012, an amnesiac Doctor and the Ice Warriors were unearthed by a human expedition led by Lord Barset. Arakssor quickly took over his old prison and planned to power the prison's sonic cannon to heat the Earth's greenhouse gases away. This would make Earth his "fortress" that Martian life could thrive in, and cause the human race to be "frozen out of existence". As his memories began to return, the Doctor commandeered the helicopter, Blade One with the physicist, Genevieve Marceau and crash landed near the dig site after Ssrongar attacked the helicopter with a sonic cannon. The Doctor reactivated Geldar's distress signal and boosted it to contact a Martian warship from the other side of the galaxy. The Martian commander, Red 0089, discovered the message, and, upon recognising Arakssor, bombarded the prison from orbit, stopping Arakssor. The Doctor and Geni quickly rushed to safety in the TARDIS as the rogue Martians were wiped out, and Geni was dropped off back on the Fortitude. (AUDIO: Frozen Time)
Still alone, the Doctor arrived on a space station that was orbiting the quarantined planet Antikon. It had fallen victim a virulent disease that had killed millions of people. Here he encountered Dar Traders once again. (AUDIO: The Death Collectors)
On the planet Tasak, the Doctor was preparing tea when he noticed an android named Temetre on his scanner. Temetre was tracking a strange signal, just like him so they formed an alliance. The two of them travelled across Argent City via the monorail transport system to the Grand Citadel of the House of Argentia where they discovered a cue plot and Sara, the person Temetre was there to rescue. Before they could leave, they were arrested as spies and brought to the banquet hall where a Cyberman statue was unveiled. The Doctor tried to warn the people of the dangers, but they ignored him. Afterwards, Argentia was taken over by the leaders of Sarkota in a coup, but this development was eclipsed when the Silver, the core of the planet’s technology repository, was revealed to be a squadron of Cybermen. Upon awakening, the began to convert the planet’s inhabitants. The Doctor managed to lead them into a trap before destroying the entire repository. (AUDIO: Kingdom of Silver)
At a later point, the Doctor arrived in the remains of the Drashani Empire, and met a mercenary called Vienna Salvatori, who had been hired to capture the Doctor for a bounty payment. He soon encountered an old enemy, Tenebris, who he had met previously in his sixth incarnation, on his second visit to the empire on Cawdor. However, he discovered that Tenebris was, in fact, Kylo Sorsha, a prince he had left stranded on the planet, Sharnax when he first arrived in the Drashani Empire, in his fifth incarnation. Sorsha plotted to take revenge against the Doctor for leaving him stranded on Sharnax, but the Doctor defeated him, and departed from the empire for the final time. (AUDIO: The Shadow Heart)
The Doctor revisited the planet Spiridon to oversee the destruction of the Daleks and the work done by Kalendorf. He soon realised that he would have to get involved in order to keep the situation under control. He made a deal with the Daleks to help them achieve their invisibility without suffering from the light wave sickness in exchange for Kalendorf’s safety. He completed the formula, but betrayed the Daleks at the last moment and exposed them and himself to the sickness. He managed to escape back to his TARDIS and refused to regenerate before collapsing on the floor. The TARDIS healed him and he dared the Daleks to catch him if they could. (AUDIO: Return of the Daleks)
The Doctor delivered a letter from deceased World War I soldier Ed, who he met in his sixth incarnation, to his wife a year after his death, (PROSE: Never Seen Cairo) bought a store in London, called "Takahashi's Treasure", encountered a housewife who had died years previously, (PROSE: Running on Empty) and met a young Claire Spencer. (AUDIO: The Word Lord)
The Doctor reunited with Raine Creevy and started travelling on and off with her. While in flight, the TARDIS was pulled into another dimension. It materialised on a barren planet when another TARDIS suddenly arrived as well, carrying a future incarnation of the Doctor. This Other Doctor was helping UNIT on Earth and warned about a mistake the Doctor was about to make and urged him not to help the Tolians, a race of aliens whose life energy was being drained away by a Node Stone. The Other Doctor departed, but the current Doctor failed to heed his warning and conjured up an energy syphon that would draw power from the very dimension. Once the Tolians were restored, they captured Raine and threatened to drop her off a cliff if the Doctor didn't increase the output. Knowing that increasing the output would result in dimensional chaos of all dimensions, the Doctor still did as the Tolians demanded and opened up the siphon. He rescued Raine and jumped into the dimensional doorway, explaining that creatures from other dimensions would now be able to freely hop around. He and Raine wandered around the void until he instructed Raine to pick the dimensional lock with her mind.
She managed to open a door into another dimension, which consisted of a volcanic surface inhabited by lava-spewing spiders. The Doctor and Raine escaped one and sought refuge in a dormant volcano until they were chased out by more spiders. They noticed another dimensional door which the arachnids were using to cross over to Earth and followed, unaware that the Other Doctor, being assisted by the Doctor's friend/adversary Elizabeth Klein, was preparing to banish the spiders that had already escaped to Earth back. Thankfully, Klein noticed Raine and the current Doctor before the Other Doctor rescued them. The current Doctor learned that UNIT had confiscated his future self’s TARDIS to force him to help them fend off a variety of dimensional escapees.
The Doctors were detained at UNIT because the members of UNIT, suspicious of their identity and motive, found it difficult to trust them. The Doctors pleaded to have the second Node Stone, in Klein’s possession, to close up the breach, but Klein refused. Before long, two more sets of creatures, floating octopi with faces on each tentacle and flying metallic cubes that self-destructed, appeared in Las Vegas and Tokyo. The Other Doctor travelled with Raine to sort out the octopi while the current Doctor and Klein dealt with the cubes. The Doctor discovered the cubes weakness – fire. After the situation had been resolved, the cubes joined together in a last desperate attempt to blow the dimensional doorway to their dimension bigger.
Seeing no other way, the Other Doctor was called in to help, but demanded the release of his TARDIS and the Node Stone before he helped them. Reluctantly, Klein did as the Other Doctor ordered, but the Doctor flew off before suddenly arriving in his TARDIS to fix the situation. It turned out that he’d time travelled back to this second after he arrived in England. UNIT started shooting at the Doctor until he doubled back into his TARDIS, followed by his younger self. Inside, the Doctor realised that the Other Doctor was really a newly regenerated Master in disguise. The Master had pretended to be the Doctor and planted the first Node Stone on Earth and conning the Doctor into opening the dimensional doorway so that he could power up the Tolians and assume mastery over every dimension. The Master captured the Doctor and hooked him up to the Node Stone, but the Doctor, with the help of footage his companions had that showed the Master planting the first Node Stone helped convince the Tolians to betray the Master and restore the dimensions. The Master managed to escape in the confusion. Afterwards, the Doctor left with Raine but not before leaving Klein a space-time telegraph to contact him, should she need his help again. (AUDIO: UNIT Dominion)
The Doctor was reunited with Nimrod, and had been connected to the main Forge computer, Oracle. Nimrod was now the new leader of the Forge. The Doctor left a syringe containing the Twilight cure beside Nimrod, which would remove his vampirism. However, considering the desiccated state he was in, only the vampire DNA was keeping him alive, and using the cure would cause his death. The Doctor departed, leaving it up to Nimrod whether he would use the cure or not. (PROSE: Twilight's End)
Reunited with Ace Edit
At some point, the Doctor was reunited with his previous companion Ace, and the two of them began travelling together again. During these travels, he tasked her to undergo missions for him solo. One such mission was to prevent time travelling criminal duo Harmonious 14 Zink and his wife Magda from interfering with established history on the planet Erratoon. On this mission, Ace encountered the living Tracer who went by the name Zara. She was ultimately successful, but lost a great amount of her memories in the process. The Doctor intended to restore them using the TARDIS, and was presumably successful. (AUDIO: The Prisoner's Dilemma)
Search for the persuasion machine Edit
Sensing his end approaching, the Doctor became afraid that whatever man came after him wouldn't be strong enough to do what he did, or that he wouldn't be willing to go as far as he had gone. He started to do whatever he could to seek out evil in the universe wherever he could find it and shut it down while he still could. To this end the Doctor started to monitor interstellar communications across thousands of worlds, the wireless communications of a multitude of law enforcement organisations, private correspondence of governments and the criminal underworlds by persuading the TARDIS to detect them. The Doctor detected that Kurt Schalk in 1945 had become the most wanted man in the universe so he set himself to find out why. He also discovered that Elizabeth Klein's current self was somehow connected to Schalk, so he travelled to the 1990s to take her with him on this trip. He managed to make Klein follow him from a pub into his TARDIS and take her along without her consent, while also, unbeknownst to him, taking along junior science officer Will Arrowsmith with them.
Travelling to Düsseldorf in 1945 they met a Nazi named Lucas Hinterberger who was a colleague of Schalk. Opening up immediately to Klein and raising suspicion on her and curiosity in the Doctor, he told them about beings they called the Struwwelpeter (based on their appearance and relating to a German children story) and offered to take them to Schalk. While searching the Doctor explained his reasons to Klein who understood his reasoning. Finding Schalk, they also came face to face with the Struwwelpeter, godlike beings form another universe who considered this one to be evil and decadent whose true names were the Shepherd and Shepherdess. They gave Schalk the knowledge to built a device known as the persuasion machine so that they could manipulate all beings in the universe to submit to their will. The Doctor trapped them in a planet called New Peerlessness, a prison planet near Kasterborous, materialising his TARDIS around the planet and keeping it in the star chamber so that he could keep an eye on them. While the Doctor dealt with them, the Klecht entity took Schalk, forcing the TARDIS crew to search for him. (AUDIO: Persuasion)
After discovering an intergalactic commercial voiced by old acquaintance Garundel regarding a weapons auction, the Doctor realised it was auctioning Schalk alongside a prototype of the persuasion machine. Because the Doctor feared suspicion from Garundel if he visited in person, he sent Klein and Will undercover in order to locate Schalk and steal him before he and the device got sold. While they were investigating the auction the Doctor waited inside the TARDIS for them to enable him to land inside the compound. Will gave the signal and he landed, but was intercepted by Garundel's assistant Ziv, who captured Will and locked him out of the store room, which was revealed to be a space ship. At that moment the auction was invaded by the Sontarans. He encountered Garundel, who forced him to go in pursuit of his assistant and Will. He learned from Garundel that Schalk didn't have enough knowledge of the machine. When they arrived the Sontaran invading fleet caught up with them, Klein held hostage. They fired at them, but they escaped to the ship, reuniting with Will. Will negotiated Klein's exchange and the Doctor discovered that the man they were selling was not actually Schalk but was instead the man they met on Minos, and that he was dead. The Doctor used the prototype of the machine to persuade Garundel to go with Ziv and rescue Klein. The Doctor explained to Will that the body they found was actually Hinterberger: Schalk had used the machine to persuade Hinterberger he was Schalk and then used it on himself to convince himself that he was Hinterberger. The Doctor boarded the Sontaran ship and discovered a third party involved, reuniting with Klein and Will and left back to Minos in 1945 with the prototype revealing to Klein the DNA connection to Schalk. (AUDIO: Starlight Robbery)
The Doctor and crew returned to Minos in 1945 to discover that the ones associated with Garundel were the Daleks. The Doctor travelled to Lemuria where he was given the location of Schalk: the planet Azimuth, a planet previously visited by him and Ace where they seemingly freed it from Dalek occupation.
In Azimuth they discovered it had become illegal to mention the Daleks and remember the occupation. Will was captured by the police when the Doctor mentioned them by name out loud. The Doctor and Klein got an audience with a prisoner whom the Doctor identified as a clone of Schalk, specifically a Dalek clone. They concluded that the Daleks were still in Azimuth hidden, the Doctor revealed to Klein that there was a blood connection with Schalk so she asked to travel to 1945 to discover the truth. Will returned to them and told them about a man called Father that wanted a meeting with the Doctor, he went to the meeting alone and discovered Father was actually Davros who asked him about the location of the Daleks, something neither of them knew. Both Davros and the Doctor were taken to the Daleks and Schalk, enabling the Doctor to discover that Klein travelled in the TARDIS to three weeks before they first arrived in Düsseldorf and discovered that Schalk was her biological father and a woman named Elizabeth Volkenrath her biological mother, engineered to operate the persuasion machine. At that moment Elizabeth returned in the TARDIS and, having seemingly reverted to her Nazi self, claimed to be willing to become the tool for the persuasion machine. A man called Falkus entered the room and revealed himself as a genetic successor of Davros and ordered the Daleks to exterminate Schalk. Falkus wanted to undo the actions the Doctor had done through time and space, Davros interrupted to no end but Elizabeth forced the Daleks and Falkus to die with the power of the machine. Will returned with the Shepard, who threatened to kill them. Elizabeth used the power of the machine to kill it but died in the process. The Doctor and Will realised that the Elizabeth who had died wasn't Klein, but her mother, and so they travelled to 1945. Tracking her to Russia where she had been trapped, he apologised to Klein for judging her by her alternative self. Will alerted them to the fact that they were surrounded by the Red Army, and an excited Doctor prepared for their next "adventure". (AUDIO: Daleks Among Us)
Nearing the end Edit
The Doctor arrived at the largest Reclaim Station in the Easto Cluster in search of fluid links for his TARDIS. He and Two'Mark, the mechanic, were approached by a small robot who recognised the Doctor. The two of them then headed back to his TARDIS, where the Doctor activated a holo-glyph control and started to play back a recording, made by old android acquaintance Sara many years ago. The recording detailed her prosecution following a failed mission and her condemnation: to have her consciousness transferred to a worker robot with her emotional capabilities stripped away as punishment. Feeling melancholy, the Doctor offered to pay Two'Mark for the fluid link, but the engineer stated that their discovery had gotten him into the mood to be generous, and allowed him to have it on the house. (AUDIO: Keepsake)
Becoming weary of his travelling alone, the Doctor decided to create his own robotic companion, Catherine Broome, as a means of company. The Doctor and Cat travelled together for a while, without Cat realising that she was in fact an android, until arriving on Haven in the 28th century. It was here that the Doctor revealed Cat's true nature in time to avert a catastrophe on a spaceship. In order to prevent the destruction of the ship, and the deaths of many colonists, Cat travelled through hazardous corridors to the control to save the lives of hundreds. (PROSE: Companion Piece)
Feeling nostalgic, the Doctor travelled to 1979 Paris, where he watched the Fourth Doctor and Romana do battle with Scaroth. Whilst there, he obtained a sketch of Romana that his fourth incarnation threw away. (PROSE: Notre Dame du Temps)
The Doctor, recalling his duty involving the transportation of the Master' remains, (PROSE: Lungbarrow) finally agreed to transport his ashes. (TV: Doctor Who) One account claims that the Doctor used a faulty Chameleon Arch to turn himself half-human in order to trick the Master in the event of his escape. (COMIC: The Forgotten)
En route to Gallifrey, the Master, in the form of a Deathworm Morphant, escaped from his casket and damaged the inner workings of the TARDIS console. The Doctor was forced to make an emergency landing in San Francisco on 30 December 1999. No sooner had he left the TARDIS to find his bearings, the Doctor was caught in the middle of a San Francisco gang war and shot, once straight through the shoulder and twice in the leg. The Doctor tried in vain to get Chang Lee to stop the Master from leaving the TARDIS, before falling unconscious.
Taken to Walker General Hospital, the bullets were found to have caused only minor injuries. However, the medical team assumed that he was fibrillating and that the X-rays showing his two hearts was a double exposure. Cardiologist Dr. Grace Holloway undertook exploratory surgery to "fix" his abnormal heartbeat. Waking up just as Holloway began the surgery, the Doctor tried to stop the surgery by explaining his non-terrestrial origins, but the surgeons quickly began to put him under anaesthetic. He attempted to warn them about the Master, but soon returned to unconsciousness.
Holloway rapidly became lost in the Doctor's strange cardiovascular system, and he began to flatline when she damaged his circulatory system with her probe. Though the team attempted to revive him, their attempts failed, and they pronounced him dead. Unlike his previous deaths, his regeneration did not begin promptly; his successor attributed his delayed regeneration to having been under anaesthesia at the time. The hospital staff locked the Doctor's deceased body inside a cold chamber, with a "John Doe" toe tag attached and a sheet placed over his body.
Several hours later, within the hospital morgue, the Doctor's corpse contorted and crackled with electrical energies as the regeneration process began, giving him new life in the form of his eighth incarnation. (TV: Doctor Who)
When the Eleventh Doctor entered into the T'keyn Nexus in order to defend himself, Matrix projections of his previous incarnations, including the Seventh Doctor, appeared inside it to defend themselves as well. (COMIC: Dead Man's Hand)
Undated adventures Edit
- The Seventh Doctor attended the funeral of Alistair Gordon Lethbridge-Stewart, as did all of his other incarnations. (PROSE: The Gift)
- River Song met the Seventh Doctor, calling him "surprisingly Scottish." She had his memory wiped with mnemosine recall-wipe vapour so the timeline would remain intact. (GAME: The Eternity Clock)
- The Seventh Doctor, sporting a beard, met Honoré Lechasseur, who described him as a "small Scottish doctor". (PROSE: The Cabinet of Light)
Alternative timelines Edit
In an alternative timeline, the Doctor and Ace were captured in Colditz Castle in October 1944. When they tried to escape, Ace was killed, and left behind her walkman. This provided the Nazis with laser technology, which they exploited to win the Second World War. Immediately afterwards, the Doctor returned to Germany in 1955, where he was shot by Nazi soldiers. He later regenerated into an alternative version of his eighth incarnation. (AUDIO: Colditz, Klein's Story)
In another alternative timeline, the Doctor was able to save Jan Rydd and his fellow Travellers on Heaven in 2570. In a third alternative timeline, the Doctor was beheaded by an Ice Warrior on Peladon in 3985. (PROSE: So Vile a Sin)
Psychological profile Edit
Infomation regarding the Doctor's character development from the Virgin New Adventures needs to be added
These omissions are so great that the article's factual accuracy has been compromised. Check out the discussion page and revision history for further clues about what needs to be updated in this article.
The Seventh Doctor was originally light-hearted and prone to clownish behaviour, which masked his intellect and courage. (TV: Time and the Rani, Paradise Towers, The Greatest Show in the Galaxy) However, as he matured, he became a grumpy and melancholy manipulator who saw the battle between good and evil as a game of chess, and everyone around him as pawns in the game of fighting evil. (TV: Remembrance of the Daleks, Silver Nemesis, The Curse of Fenric; PROSE: Head Games)
Influenced by his predecessor's decision to let his morality and scruples die with him in his final moments, (AUDIO: The Brink of Death) the seventh incarnation actively sought out villains to vanquish and dictatorships to dethrone, as opposed to his previous incarnations, who would stumble upon trouble by happenstance. (TV: Remembrance of the Daleks, The Happiness Patrol)
Being the most dangerous of the Doctors, (AUDIO: Persuasion) he would see only the "bigger picture" rather than the world before him, (PROSE: Head Games) such as devastating Ace by labeling her an "emotional cripple" to weaken Fenric's power by making her abandon her belief in him. (TV: The Curse of Fenric) However, he was not totally unfeeling when it came to the "bigger picture", as he appeared apprehensive about his decision to destroy Skaro, (TV: Remembrance of the Daleks) and was genuinely agonised that he had to convince Ace that he did not care about her. (TV: The Curse of Fenric)
Despite his manipulative actions, such as using psychic powers to make Mel leave with Sabalom Glitz, (PROSE: Head Games) the Seventh Doctor did care for his companions, (TV: Battlefield; AUDIO: The Fearmonger) and even sought their approval on occasion. (PROSE: Head Games)
Although he originally invited her to travel with him due to Fenric, (PROSE: Head Games) the Doctor developed a paternal relationship with Ace. (TV: Remembrance of the Daleks, Silver Nemesis, The Greatest Show in the Galaxy, Ghost Light, The Curse of Fenric, Survival) Though their relationship soured when Ace found herself unable to deal with the Doctor's growing emotional coldness, (PROSE: Nightshade) she eventually decided that, while the Doctor "may be a bastard," he was "still [her] bastard". (PROSE: Head Games) She believed that he had the "deepest, saddest eyes", (AUDIO: The Prisoner's Dilemma) and even told the Doctor that she loved him. (AUDIO: Signs and Wonders)
Although his more whimsical tendencies disappeared over time, the Doctor maintained a fondness for idiosyncratic speeches that occasionally referred to literature, ordinary places and even food and drink amidst the weightier concerns on his mind. (TV: Survival) Other times, he would somberly reflect the ramifications of time, and the consequences of interfering in history. (TV: Dragonfire, Remembrance of the Daleks)
In direct contrast to his previous incarnation, the Seventh Doctor was opposed to violence of any sort, although he proved capable of rendering an opponent unconscious with a touch. (TV: Battlefield, Survival) While he was completely against the use of firearms, (TV: The Happiness Patrol) the Doctor was willing to use a Tissue Compression Eliminator to defend himself against Death's Head. (COMIC: The Crossroads of Time)
While his human counterpart fell in love with Joan Redfern, (PROSE: Human Nature) the Doctor himself was decidedly celibate. (AUDIO: Bang-Bang-A-Boom!) He could also be critical of human nature, stating that humans had "the most amazing capacity for self-deception, matched only by [their] ingenuity when trying to destroy [themselves]", (TV: Remembrance of the Daleks) and that "among all the varied wonders of the universe, [there was] nothing so firmly clamped shut as the military mind". (TV: Battlefield)
Nearing the end of his life, the Doctor decided to retire from his niche of manipulation. Feeling guilty and tired from his plotting, he acknowledged he had lived past his prime and would soon regenerate. Fearing that his next incarnation would not want to continue plans that he had set in motion, the Doctor put all his affairs in order to leave nothing unsung when his time drew to a close. (AUDIO: Persuasion) However, after being saved from an Eight Leg by the Eighth Doctor, he became determined to enjoy every minute of his current incarnation. After the Eighth Doctor warned him of a trap by the Master, the Seventh Doctor decided not to think about it, and let fate decide when and how his life would end, instead of despairing over being alone. (PROSE: The Eight Doctors)
The Seventh Doctor was generally disliked by his other incarnations. (AUDIO: The Shadow of the Scourge) The Fifth Doctor was repulsed by his manipulative nature, (PROSE: Cold Fusion) and the Sixth Doctor told Evelyn Smythe that his successor was "always blowing up planets", (AUDIO: A Death in the Family) and that he was "not looking forward to that." (AUDIO: Arrangements for War) The Eleventh Doctor described his seventh incarnation as "probably one of [his] more circumspect periods." (AUDIO: Shockwave)
The Eighth Doctor came to view his immediate predecessor's manipulative nature with disdain, telling Lucie Miller that he was "the man with the master plan" who arranged the destruction of his enemies and the toppling of dictatorships in order to serve the greater good, to the point where he began to countenance sacrificing the lives of the few to save the many. (AUDIO: The Resurrection of Mars)
Iris Wildthyme described the Doctor as "a portentous little feller, swaggering around, thinking he's got all the world's darkest secrets under his hat." (PROSE: The Scarlet Empress) Brigadier General Adrienne Kramer described him as "a manipulative little weirdo who was always up to something behind [her] back." (PROSE: Vampire Science) When she encountered the Seventh Doctor shortly before her death, Evelyn Smythe criticised him for his scheming, manipulative nature, (AUDIO: A Death in the Family) while Melanie Bush described the man he became as "a liar and a user and quite possibly a murderer," and proclaimed that she wanted nothing more to do with him. (PROSE: Head Games)
The Master once described the Seventh Doctor as a "tiresome little man with [an] umbrella", (AUDIO: Eyes of the Master) while Alan Fitzgerald, a summer intern at the Gogglebox, believed that the Seventh Doctor knew everything. (AUDIO: The Gathering)
The Doctor told Chris Cwej that he viewed regenerating as both a good and bad feeling in the same way that driving a car very fast was a good and bad feeling; enjoying the exhilaration of the process but knowing that you were going to "die" at the end. (PROSE: The Room With No Doors)
After getting shot in a gang shootout in San Francisco, the Doctor spent his last lucid moments desperately trying to warn Dr. Grace Holloway not to operate on him, proclaiming his need to stop the Master and, after succumbing to sedation, screaming in agony when the operation dealt fatal damage to him. (TV: Doctor Who) Holloway noted that the Doctor seemed "very clear, very determined and very powerful" while also looking "very serious but also very frightened of something", and felt that he was "rarely afraid of anything". (PROSE: Doctor Who) The Doctor later recalled his demise as being "undignified", and expressed annoyance that he "didn't see that one coming". (AUDIO: Zagreus)
Habits and quirks Edit
The Doctor was a consummate fan of chess, to the point of treating his companions and enemies as pieces on a chess board. (TV: The Curse of Fenric) Despite his tendency toward a dark personality, the seventh incarnation was known for his use of words to resolve problems instead of violence. (TV: Dragonfire, Remembrance of the Daleks, Silver Nemesis, Battlefield, Ghost Light, Survival)
A habit occasionally displayed by the seventh incarnation was a tendency to mangle and combine Earth idioms, creating Dundrearyisms. (TV: Time and the Rani, Delta and the Bannermen) After Mel described the habit as "really annoying," the Doctor promised that he would try to stop doing it. (AUDIO: Bang-Bang-A-Boom!)
The Seventh Doctor was a grand manipulator, often utilising his choice of words to persuade others into a decision of his choosing, (TV: Paradise Towers, The Happiness Patrol) or strategising an unscrupulous scheme to defeat his adversaries. (TV: Remembrance of the Daleks, The Curse of Fenric) Something of a showman, the Doctor was an adept physical performer, and deployed a repertoire of magic tricks, illusions and escape artistry as part of his plans. (TV: The Greatest Show in the Galaxy) When his plans went awry, or an unexpected element developed, the Doctor was efficient at improvising around it. (TV: Remembrance of the Daleks)
Despite his stature, the Doctor was capable of both directly and indirectly taking control of situations involving strangers, using his greater intelligence to assess and direct events. (TV: Remembrance of the Daleks, The Happiness Patrol) While he loathed violence, the Doctor also showed a skill at unarmed combat, being able to briefly overpower a judo trained Melanie Bush and a Cheetah virus infected Master. (TV: Time and the Rani, Survival)
The Doctor also showed a knack for playing the spoons as a musical instrument, (TV: Time and the Rani, The Greatest Show in the Galaxy; AUDIO: Colditz, Afterlife) though this was seen less as he matured. (AUDIO: Master) Representing Earth in lieu of Nicky Newman, he won the 309th Intergalactic Song Contest by playing the spoons. (AUDIO: Bang-Bang-A-Boom!)
To fool the genetic scanner used by the Imperial Landsknechte on Purgatory, the Doctor used partially regeneration, a process that gave Time Lords a new set of genes, but used up a lot of regenerative energy. (PROSE: Original Sin)
Info about the Doctor's physical appearance and facial features needs to be added
These omissions are so great that the article's factual accuracy has been compromised. Check out the discussion page and revision history for further clues about what needs to be updated in this article.
Hair and grooming Edit
While he had a full set of hair after his regeneration, (TV: Time and the Rani) the Doctor allowed his greying hair to grow out into tufts on the sides of his head, while it thinned a bit at the top of his scalp, by the end of his life. (TV: Doctor Who)
To begin with, the Doctor wore an off-white safari-styled jacket, with a red paisley handkerchief in the left pocket. The Doctor initially wore a tartan scarf under his lapels, (TV: Time and the Rani) but later switched to a paisley one. (TV: Paradise Towers) He also wore a yellow pullover with turquoise zigzag lines and red question marks, sometimes tucking it into his sand-coloured tweed plaid trousers in order to attach a pair of red braces over it. Under the pullover, he wore a white shirt with red tie. He wore white and brown brogued spectator shoes. (TV: Time and the Rani)
After giving his cream coat to Rebeekan on the planet Rebeeka VI, (PROSE: It's Only a Game) the Doctor changed his jacket, hat band, handkerchief, scarf and tie to vary between shades of burgundy and brown. (TV: Battlefield, Ghost Light)
After his regeneration stabilised, the Doctor took to carrying around an umbrella as part of his day-to-day outfit, whether the occasion called for it or not. (TV: Time and the Rani, Paradise Towers, Delta and the Bannermen, Dragonfire)
He initially carried his previous incarnation's multi-coloured umbrella, but neglected to retrieve it from the Rani's TARDIS after the events on Lakertya. (TV: Time and the Rani) Fortunately, the TARDIS wardrobe provided him with a suitable replacement; (PROSE: The Useful Pile) a black umbrella with a whangee handle. (TV: Paradise Towers)
After his black umbrella was damaged, (AUDIO: The Warehouse) the Doctor acquired a new umbrella, with an elaborate handle in the shape of a large red question mark. (TV: Delta and the Bannermen) The handle was detachable, hiding a secret compartment with a vial of Time Lord restorative, disguised as a decorative fixture on his umbrella. (COMIC: The Forgotten)
Behind the scenes Edit
Actors considered for the role of the seventh incarnation before McCoy was cast included Rowan Atkinson, who later played the ninth incarnation in the satirical The Curse of Fatal Death; McCoy's mentor Ken Campbell; Chris Jury; Tony Robinson; and Alexei Sayle. Sayle had previously played the DJ in TV: Revelation of the Daleks. Furthermore, Andrew Sachs and Dermot Crowley auditioned for the role.
Cartmel Masterplan Edit
Season 25 and 26 had broad hints that the Doctor was not simply a Time Lord, as previously shown and stated. This overarching plot, conceived by Script Editor Andrew Cartmel and referred to by fans as the Cartmel Masterplan, was designed to restore an element of mystery in the Doctor and his true nature as in the stories of the first and second incarnations. Although the cancellation of the series at the end of Season 26 prevented further on-screen exploration of this arc, it was later given full rein in the Virgin New Adventures novel series.
Parodies and pastiches Edit
- After the original series ended, Sylvester McCoy and Sophie Aldred played characters called the Professor and Ace, respectively, in a series of audio adventures produced by BBV Productions. Initially the stories were clearly based upon Doctor Who, but these connections decreased when the character was renamed the Dominie and Aldred's character Alice.
- McCoy also parodied his version of the Doctor in the BBV production, Do You Have a Licence to Save This Planet?.
- In the BBC series, Doctors, Sylvester guest-starred as Graham Capelli, an actor who had played the titular role in The Amazing Lollipop Man, a cult 1980s children's television series. The Lollipop Man had many similarities to the Doctor.
- An Easter Egg referencing the Seventh Doctor appears in the seventh episode of the first season (The Tale of the Captured Souls) of the Nickelodean children's horror series, Are You Afraid of the Dark?. The Seventh Doctor's hat and coat can be seen hanging from a hatstand at two points in the episode.
The Brilliant Book 2011 Edit
According to The Brilliant Book 2011, a non-narrative source, the Seventh Doctor was at Chartwell on 16 November 1936, where he met Winston Churchill again. The Doctor told Winston that King Edward VIII's lover, Wallis Simpson, was an alien.
A submission from "j q public" had sighted someone who looked like a version of the Doctor in Clive's photographs — the Ninth Doctor — arguing with "a little man with an umbrella" on a university campus.
