The Doctor's umbrellas Edit

Second Doctor Edit

The Second Doctor carried an umbrella on the Gond planet because of the "twin suns. It's probably hot." Then he used it as defence against vaporisation — which resulted in the umbrella being ruined. (TV: The Krotons)

Fourth Doctor Edit

(TV: Time and the Rani)

Seventh Doctor Edit

The Seventh Doctor initially carried his previous incarnation's multi-coloured umbrella, at one point clumsily brandishing it as a weapon against the Rani. He left it behind upon choosing his new outfit. (TV: Time and the Rani)

After his regeneration stabilised the Doctor generally continued to carried 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) Eventually he acquired a new umbrella, with an elaborate handle in the shape of a large red question mark. (TV: Delta and the Bannermen)

On the planet Svartos, the Doctor saved himself from slipping off a sheer ice cliff by hanging from his umbrella. (TV: Dragonfire)

The Doctor was known to measure objects with his umbrella. (TV: Remembrance of the Daleks)

The question-mark umbrella handle was known to split in half and unfold into a seat, allowing the Doctor to plant the umbrella into the ground and use it as a makeshift stool. (COMIC: Planet of the Dead, PROSE: Storm Harvest)

A secret compartment in the Doctor's umbrella concealed a vial of Gallifreyan restorative. (COMIC: The Forgotten)

The Eighth Doctor gave Bernice Summerfield this umbrella, when they met each other after he regenerated. (PROSE: The Dying Days)

Eighth Doctor Edit

According to Alan Turing, the Eighth Doctor carried a yellow and white umbrella with what Turing called a "very fine" maple-wood handle shaped like a duck's head. (PROSE: The Turing Test)

The Doctor found in the TARDIS a yellow umbrella with a question mark handle which contained a concealed sword blade. He claimed it had never been drawn, but was unsure if it was actually his. (PROSE: The Slow Empire)

Tenth Doctor Edit

While the Tenth Doctor did not typically carry an umbrella, he appeared to make extensive use of the Sixth Doctor's multi-coloured version while on rainy Grått. (COMIC: The Whispering Gallery)

Eleventh Doctor Edit

The Doctor compared the patchwork people Auntie and Uncle to his old umbrella. (TV: The Doctor's Wife)

Behind the scenes Edit

  • In the webcast Scream of the Shalka, the so-called Shalka Doctor kept a plain black umbrella in an umbrella stand, which the Master had a habit of leaving in the TARDIS's zeppelin hangar.
  • The Sixth Doctor's multi-coloured umbrella was an unplanned extra, as it was hastily provided on the day of Colin Baker's first photocall as the Doctor in order to protect the costume from rain. Merchandisers who used these photographs for reference subsequently included the umbrella with the costume.
