A 907 Year old Time Lord

0 · 201 views · located in Earth

a character in “Doctor Who - Time in Need”, as played by The Raggedy Doctor

Description

The Eleventh Doctor was the most youthful looking incarnation of the Doctor. Far more outwardly alien than his predecessor, he was quite smug about his abilities and exhibited a renewed youthful enthusiasm for adventure. He possessed keen observational skills, as well as a penchant for making deductions in the manner of Sherlock Holmes, a skill he encouraged in his companions.

He possessed keen observational skills, as well as a penchant for making deductions in the manner of Sherlock Holmes, a skill he encouraged in his companions.
Much like the Second Doctor, this Doctor shows a childlike recklessness but always has a grander scheme behind his actions. Also similar to his second incarnation, the Eleventh has a knack for acting smug, occasionally boasting about his feats, knowledge, and reputation.
This Doctor also has a more serious side to his character. He shows little tolerance for dire mistakes and being belittled by others; he likely does not give second chances. He often takes his frustrations out on others by exploding with anger and coldness. (DW: The Beast Below/Flesh and Stone) He even threatened to leave Amy back at her home after one mistake. (DW: The Beast Below) He is also more prone to violent actions and sometimes uses them as his first option to achieve his goals: he repeatedly attacked a Dalek with a spanner in order to provoke it into showing its true nature and immediately struck Dr. Bracewell in order to incapacitate his detonation. (DW: Victory of the Daleks) This Doctor also possessed a sense of arrogance, offhandedly stating to Amy that "time is not the boss of me". (DW: The Time of Angels)
The Eleventh Doctor shares many (but much milder) traits of the Sixth Doctor such as the solemn nature of this Doctor when not being taken seriously and the belittling of humans. Also reminiscent of the Sixth Doctor, this Doctor seems to be less interested in his companions than his previous incarnation was, even ignoring them when busy with his work. Unlike his previous incarnation, this Doctor seems slightly annoyed with River Song instead of enjoying her company. He is also mildly callous like his sixth and ninth incarnations, he doesn't believe in using white lies nor does he dabble around with the truth like what his tenth incarnation did. He is straight to the point and does not beat around the bush no matter how bad the situation is. He held up an awe struck Rory by his collar in order to stop him from babbling and get information out of him quickly (DW: The Eleventh Hour) and calmly told Amy that they might plunge to their death if things go awry. (DW: Flesh and Stone).
Much like his fourth, sixth, and ninth incarnation, this Doctor was much more outwardly alien and wasn't as in touch with humanity as his fifth, eighth and previous incarnation were. The Eleventh believes that a human's ability to feel pain and suffering defines their humanity. (DW: Victory of the Daleks) The Eleventh is also aware of the flaws humans have and reminds them of those flaws, a trait his ninth incarnation had. He seems to suggest that he sees humans as beneath him. When speaking with Father Octavian about Alfava Metraxis he compares humans to rabbits and claims he'll "never get done saving you." (DW: The Time of Angels) When Amy suddenly forces herself upon the Doctor and kisses him he immediately responds with "But you're human!" (DW: Flesh and Stone)
The Eleventh Doctor has also shown a tendency to refer to Amy by her surname, much as his first incarnation did with Ian Chesterton. Also similar to his first incarnation, this Doctor wasn't keen on hiding his emotions, usually making his anger obvious through violent actions and tone of speech. However, unlike his previous incarnation, he seemed unable to respond well in a romantic situation with Amy Pond. (DW: Flesh and Stone)

History

The Doctor left Gallifrey and became a hero who fought evil and injustice across the universe, in violation of the Time Lords' non-interference policy. Technically he explored only with the intention of experiencing the wonders of the universe and having fun, but was frequently embroiled in machinations and crises that ended with him defeating the foe and saving the planet he was on. He travelled with many companions, beginning with his granddaughter Susan Foreman, who also came from Gallifrey.
Eventually, he was held to account for his crimes against the Time Lords during his second incarnation. The punishment was a forced regeneration and exile to Earth, as well as loss of the knowledge of how to control the TARDIS. (DW: The War Games) This knowledge was restored to him after he helped to defeat Omega. (DW: The Three Doctors)
The Doctor fought in the Last Great Time War between the Time Lords and the Daleks. He was ultimately responsible for ending the war, likely the act which resulted in the obliteration of Gallifrey, as well as the supposed extinction of both races, apart from the Doctor himself. (DW: Dalek)
Through the power of regeneration, the Doctor's personality and outer form has greatly changed over time, although all his incarnations are essentially the same person. He continues to be a heroic figure, fighting the evils of the universe wherever he finds them, even if his values and motives are sometimes alien to Humankind. To date, the Doctor has had eleven incarnations:
The First Doctor was a somewhat unreadable, guarded figure, irascible, protective of young women who reminded him of his grand-daughter Susan, a brilliant but often short-tempered scientist and a keen strategist. Though far from invulnerable, he usually ran rings around lesser intellects.
The Second Doctor was warm and wise, a sort of 'cosmic hobo', often as frightened of the alien menaces he faced as those around him. Often overtaken by events, he improvised his way out of trouble โ€” but he also had a manipulative streak about him, too.
The Third Doctor cut more of a dashing figure than his predecessors, a dandy with a penchant for gadgets and martial arts, particularly Venusian aikido. His difficult relationship with the Brigadier softened to an easy mutual trust. He had a personal arch-enemy, the Master. Due to his exile by his own people, he spent most of his life on Earth.
The Fourth Doctor was something of a cross between Willy Wonka and the Mad Hatter, rarely without his signature scarf of incredible length. He was perhaps the most eccentric incarnation and progressed from bohemian vagabond to manic scatterbrain to a more mature and sombre figure.
The Fifth Doctor had a fondness for cricket. He was somewhat more nervous and less sure of himself than the two previous Doctors, though all the more heroic because of it. Like the Second Doctor, he often found himself backed into a corner and had to figure out a way back once more.
The Sixth Doctor, grandiose and eloquent, sported a multi-hued wardrobe that looked as if designed by Christian Lacroix, had a manic personality and an acerbic wit which could shade into moral passion. He loved a good quote and rarely got caught off-guard by an enemy.
The Seventh Doctor, his voice touched by a Scottish burr, combined the vagabond nature of the Second and Fourth Doctors with the scientific brilliance of the First and Third incarnations. Armed with a keenly tactical mind, his personality deepened and darkened. He seemed, often, a demi-god walking amongst lesser beings, letting his companions know little, an avenging angel driven to eradicate evil at any cost. Of all the Doctors, he had arguably the most complex personality.
The Eighth Doctor showed a romantic and sensitive side not evident in the previous Doctors. More morally flexible than his predecessor, this Doctor suffered bouts of amnesia, first after his initial regeneration and again after the first destruction of Gallifrey following the War with the Enemy.
The Ninth Doctor, now a survivor of the Last Great Time War, displayed much of the playfulness of the Fourth and early Seventh Doctors, but also displayed a pragmatism which could at times appear callous. This Doctor also seemed very conscious of the effects his actions had on those around him. His attire was also considerably more conservative and less conspicuous than those of his predecessors and his accent and attitude more working class.
The Tenth Doctor showed a manic personality, and bit of an eccentric crackpot, a cross between the Fourth Doctor and the Ninth, with hints of the Seventh with the style of the Fifth and a fondness for Human pop culture reference. He had a serious side to him, but quite often his more playful traits would counter the serious unless in great danger. At times he could also show various other traits, such as ruthlessness and emotion.

He possessed keen observational skills, as well as a penchant for making deductions in the manner of Sherlock Holmes, a skill he encouraged in his companions.
An interesting aspect of the Doctor's personality was that he, on occasion expressed a personal liking for particular incarnations, though this opinion changed depending on the incarnation making the assessment. The Doctor's tenth incarnation expressed a deep fondness for his fifth incarnation (DW: Time Crash). Ironically, the Fifth Doctor was disliked by his successor (DW: The Twin Dilemma), though this may have been due to his particularly aggressive regenerative trauma. In another instance, the fourth made reference to the third, saying "Some people liked it, but I prefer this one" (DW: The Brain of Morbius). Immediately before his tenth regeneration, the Tenth Doctor stated, "I don't want to go" (DW: The End of Time). Immediately after his tenth regeneration, the Eleventh Doctor remarked upon his new nose, stating that "I've had worse"- a reference to his third incarnation. (DW: The End of Time)

On Gallifrey, the Doctor was one of the forty-five cousins created by a Loom to the House of Lungbarrow. When the House disowned him, he replied that he had "other families. The Doctor can speak 5 billion languages (DW: The Parting of the Ways), though it is likely he can only do so with help from the TARDIS' telepathic translation circuits. His native language is probably Modern Gallifreyan, but he seems to prefer speaking British English, usually in an accent that on Earth is considered similar to spoken accents used in the British Isles; this accent has changed incarnation to incarnation, with, for example, the Doctor's seventh incarnation speaking with an accent similar to that used in Scotland (the tenth incarnation once affected a Scottish accent intentionally (DW: Tooth and Claw)), Grace Holloway identifying the eighth Doctor to a policeman as being English (DW: Doctor Who (1996)), and Rose Tyler identifying the ninth Doctor's accent as being that of northern England (DW: Rose). In that last example, the Doctor actually became defensive about his accent and made the claim "lots of planets have a North" in response.

He can read and write Old High Gallifreyan, an unusual skill even among Time Lords. (DW: The Five Doctors) It is possible however, that he does speak in a language other than English, and the TARDIS translates for everyone he speaks to.

He was fluent in the language of the Judoon (DW: The Stolen Earth), Delphon (a language "spoken" using only eyebrow movements) (DW: Spearhead from Space), several Chinese languages (DW: The Mind of Evil, The Talons of Weng-Chiang), ancient Martian (DW: The Waters of Mars), and many other Human and alien languages. He did not seem to understand French in his second incarnation (DW: The War Games), but later became fluent.

Connections With EarthAlthough the Doctor visited many worlds, the planet Earth remains the one for which he had the closest affinity. He displayed immense knowledge of and/or interest in Earth history and was either an observer or an active participant in countless major events in that history. As noted previously, he found himself exiled to Earth during his third incarnation, very much against his wishes. He worked with UNIT during this time.

However he also had, at times, an affinity for the place, and specifically for Great Britain. When Angus Goodman asked him if he was British, he replied that he wasn't, but thanked Gus for the compliment. (DWM: 4-Dimensional Vistas) He considered himself to be British soon after his regeneration into his eighth incarnation. (DW: The TV Movie)

His incarnations have adopted accents based upon different regions of the United Kingdom, most notably his seventh incarnation (who had a Scottish accent) and his ninth, whose accent resembled that of the north of England - though he tried to pass it off by claiming "lots of planets have a North!" (DW: Rose) His tenth incarnation once adopted a convincing Scottish accent as part of a disguise. (DW: Tooth and Claw)

The vast majority of the Doctor's known companions have been humans hailing from various points in the planet's history. His ninth and tenth incarnations developed a network of friends and former companions at one point referred to as the Doctor's secret Army or the Children of Time. Thanks to their knowledge of him, they were able to summon him in a time of desperate need when he was unable to find Earth and come to save the day with his companion at the time, Donna Noble. This threat (Davros' New Dalek Empire) took the combined power of the Doctor and all of the companions and friends in his Secret Army to defeat. Among those were Sarah Jane Smith (who refered to his companions as his family as well) and her computer Mr Smith, her dog K-9 and her son Luke Smith, Captain Jack Harkness and his Torchwood team, Harriet Jones (who sacrificed herself to help summon him), Donna Noble and her mother and grandfather who helped summon the Doctor, Martha Jones who was given a job at UNIT after she left the Doctor, Mickey Smith who briefly traveled with him, Rose Tyler and her mother Jackie who showed up to help from Pete's World (the parallel world they were living on). Also, a clone of the Doctor was created that played a role in the end of the threat as well, but was left behind on Pete's World with Rose to live out a normal human life. (DW: The Stolen Earth, Journey's End)

The general populace of Earth remained oblivious to the Doctor's ongoing efforts to protect the planet, and unaware of his existence. There have been a few exceptions to this, however. During the Sycorax invasion, Prime Minister Harriet Jones made a public appeal over the UK airwaves calling on the Doctor to intervene. (DW: The Christmas Invasion) The Doctor appeared on international television to light the Olympic flame at the 2012 London Games, though he was never identified (DW: Fear Her). By the early 21st century, the Doctor had also become something of a cult figure, with at least one group, LINDA, following his exploits (DW: Love & Monsters, Time Crash), and conspiracy theorists dedicating websites to solving the "Who is the Doctor?" mystery (DW: Rose, World War Three, et al). At some point after 2059, due to the Doctor altering history, a media website ran a story about "The Mythical Doctor" and his involvement in the Bowie Base One incident on Mars and the rescue of two of its crewmembers (DW: The Waters of Mars).

Perhaps the widest knowledge of the Doctor came during the so-called The Year That Never Was, during which Martha Jones travelled around Earth spreading tales of the Doctor and generating a groundswell of faith in the Time Lord that facilitated the defeat of the Master; this timeline, however, was ultimately negated and forgotten by all but a few individuals. (DW: Last of the Time Lords). A rare public show of gratitude for the Doctor's efforts occurred at the behest of Jackson Lake in 19th century London following the defeat of the CyberKing (DW: The Next Doctor); similarly, during the same era, Queen Victoria knighted the Doctor (dubbing him Sir Doctor of TARDIS) for his efforts before banishing him from Great Britain. (DW: Tooth and Claw) Neither event appears to have been widely recorded in history.
