Sydney was the husband of Verity and the father of John Smith in the fictional backstory John thought was his own.

Sydney was a watchmaker. He and his wife raised John on Broadmarsh Street in Radford Parade in the district of Nottingham, where Sydney was from. (TVHuman Nature) After he and his wife died the family maid, Martha Jones, continued to serve John. (TVThe Family of Blood)

John Smith was in fact the Tenth Doctor, and these memories were a constructed part of his identity, after the Chameleon Arch made the Doctor human. (TVHuman Nature / The Family of Blood)

Behind the scenes Edit

John's parents' names Verity and Sydney were a tribute and reference to Verity Lambert and Sydney Newman, both essential to the making of Doctor Who.
