This article needs a big cleanup.

As detailed at Thread:264489, to avoid overly long articles, highly-recurring character pages' biography should only have AT MOST 2-3 sentences per story, not whole paragraphs of plot detail. This page needs a major cleanup in that area.

These problems might be so great that the article's factual accuracy has been compromised. Talk about it here or check the revision history or Manual of Style for more information.

Youthful in mind, manner and appearance, the Fifth Doctor expressed an interest in all things Victorian and Edwardian: cricket, tea, fair play, good manners, and a keen interest in science and exploration.

He was also a sensitive and profusely humane incarnation of the Doctor, who did not make himself an imposition, preferring to be honest reserved, and honourable. However, the Doctor was also less willing to do what he thought was immoral, and became highly conflicted about what choices he could make in a crisis that were truly right. His hesitancy made him seemingly more fallible than many other incarnations, making those around him wonder if he was capable of resolving difficult situations. Nevertheless, he was one of the most overtly fearless incarnations, and frequently found himself right in the thick of battle.

Like his first two incarnations, the Doctor often travelled with multiple companions. However, his TARDIS was rarely as harmonious as those of his predecessors. Instead, he frequently found himself stuck between Tegan Jovanka's pessimism and Adric's arrogance or Turlough's antagonism. Stuck in the middle with him was usually Nyssa, who regularly had to stand as a voice of reason. Even after he seemingly was settled on just having one companion, he and Peri Brown found another companion, a pharaoh from Egypt called Erimem, and the Doctor once again slid into the role of the oft-maligned chaperone.

During his final adventure, the Doctor accidentally exposed himself and Peri to unrefined spectrox, contracting fatal spectrox toxaemia. Though he acquired an antidote, the Doctor had only enough for one person; he gave it to Peri. Not knowing if the disease could kill Time Lords for good, the Doctor gambled on regeneration saving his life, successfully regenerating into a new body after experiencing a vision of the Master and his former companions.

The First Doctor would occasionally have premonitions of his future incarnations, (PROSE: A Big Hand for the Doctor [+]Loading...["A Big Hand for the Doctor (short story)"]) and there was a rumour that he was able to glimpse his first seven regenerations during a game of Eighth Man Bound. (PROSE: Christmas on a Rational Planet [+]Loading...["Christmas on a Rational Planet (novel)"], Lungbarrow [+]Loading...["Lungbarrow (novel)"]) He once indicated he knew a future incarnation would enjoy cricket. (COMIC: A Religious Experience [+]Loading...["A Religious Experience (comic story)"])

When the First Doctor learned that he was diverted from the South Pole by "forces from the future" to stop him from becoming an incarnation that would play a key role in a future conflict, he was informed by the Player that he would have "lots of new faces" before he regenerated into the incarnation involved in the conflict. (AUDIO: The Plague of Dreams [+]Loading...["The Plague of Dreams (audio story)"]) Shortly before his regeneration, the First Doctor was told of "a few false starts" before he became the Twelfth Doctor, and was later shown footage of the Fifth Doctor, as well as his ten other successors, by the Testimony when he expressed doubt over the Twelfth Doctor's identity. (TV: Twice Upon a Time [+]Loading...["Twice Upon a Time (TV story)"])

When the history of Atkya changed, the Second Doctor discovered that one of his future incarnations had accidentally doomed the Atkyans when a stabilising agent to a cure he made for renepscia syndrome caused the metabolism of the Atkyans to speed up. (PROSE: One Step Forward, Two Steps Back [+]Loading...["One Step Forward, Two Steps Back (short story)"]) While trying on new outfits after his third regeneration, the Fourth Doctor was worried he had regenerated again when he misunderstood Alistair Gordon Lethbridge-Stewart's comment about him having "changed". (TV: Robot [+]Loading...["Robot (TV story)"]) After receiving a summons from Gallifrey, and telling Sarah Jane Smith that he had to leave her behind to answer it, Sarah Jane asked to Doctor if the summons meant he would regenerate again, to which he voiced his own uncertainty.

While meeting a future incarnation, the Fourth Doctor considered the implications that this future incarnation represented all the lives he'd live before reaching this point. (AUDIO: Out of Time [+]Loading...["Out of Time (audio story)"])

During a reunion with Mike Yates in the early 21st century, the Fourth Doctor learned he had "changed, and changed again," when Yates commented on him being "back as [he] [was] in the seventies", despite hearing about the Doctor regenerating. (AUDIO: The Stuff of Nightmares [+]Loading...["The Stuff of Nightmares (BBC audio story)"]) After crashing the TARDIS on the way to Shada, the Fourth Doctor briefly believed he had regenerated.

After being severely injured from falling off the Pharos Project Radio Telescope, the Fourth Doctor merged with the Watcher and regenerated into his fifth incarnation. (TV: Logopolis [+]Loading...["Logopolis (TV story)"]) The regeneration proved to be a difficult one, nearly failing. His companions took him to the Zero Room to stabilise. While he was recovering (TV: Castrovalva [+]Loading...["Castrovalva (TV story)"]) and entering into a hallucination, (PROSE: The Comet's Tail [+]Loading...["The Comet's Tail (short story)"]) a message came from Adric, whom the Tremas Master had abducted, saying the TARDIS was heading for Event One. The Doctor left Tegan and Nyssa instructions on how to escape by jettisoning rooms from the TARDIS.

Much of the Zero Room was jettisoned as a result and the Doctor, needing a peaceful place to continue his stabilisation, went to Castrovalva. After he had recovered, he learned the city was artificial, created by block transfer computations. The Master, in the guise of the Portreeve, had created the city with Adric's mind. The Doctor rescued Adric and the TARDIS crew fled Castrovalva as it collapsed in on itself, leaving the Master to be erased from existence with it.

Early adventures[[edit]]

The Doctor and his companions visited what appeared to be a planet inhabited by highly unusual people, but eventually realised that they were on the Psychodrome, where their memories, desires and fears were being brought to life. One of their creations, Nyssa's twisted perception of the Doctor, mixed with her own thoughts on her lost father and the Master, named King Magus, who planned to use the memories of the TARDIS crew to conquer his world, but they managed to escape. (AUDIO: Psychodrome [+]Loading...["Psychodrome (audio story)"])

Visiting a colony in the 28th century to replace what had been jettisoned from the TARDIS, the Doctor was thrown in front of a train by Roz Forrester in order to stall the train. After joining a scientific mission, the Doctor encountered his seventh incarnation, and the two fought the misguided Ferutu together. (PROSE: Cold Fusion [+]Loading...["Cold Fusion (novel)"]) Afterwards, the Doctor and his companions spent Christmas with Iris Wildthyme. (AUDIO: Excelis Dawns [+]Loading...["Excelis Dawns (audio story)"])

When Nyssa discovered the TARDIS was running low on food, the Doctor took the TARDIS to a supermarket to restock. However, the Tremas Master had set up a trap at the supermarket by turning it into a maze, but the Doctor was able to lead Adric, Nyssa and Tegan out of the maze by marking their trail with frozen peas. (PROSE: Dr. Fifth [+]Loading...["Dr. Fifth (novel)"])

The Doctor visited the planet Isopterus, which he found to be overrun by giant termites. He freed the surviving humanoid inhabitants held captive in the termites' nests and took them to freedom on a safe planet. (COMIC: On the Planet Isopterus [+]Loading...["On the Planet Isopterus (comic story)"])

The Doctor was next reunited with his old friend, Edward Grainger, who had a new-born baby boy. Adric was taken over by a complex computer entity, attacking the Doctor, Tegan and Nyssa and kidnapping Edward's son to create a new body for itself. The Doctor uploaded the computer entity into the TARDIS systems and transported it to Otho, the second moon of Liberius, blocking its control over Adric and Edward's son.

The Doctor attempts to reach his TARDIS. (TV: Four to Doomsday [+]Loading...["Four to Doomsday (TV story)"])

Setting off for more adventures, the Doctor was asked by Tegan to return her to 1981 London, as she had only entered his company by accident. The Doctor got the TARDIS to 1981, but in the wrong place: a Urbankan spaceship. The TARDIS crew stopped Monarch's scheme for time travel with cyborgs, even though the Doctor had to deal with Adric, who had allied himself with Monarch. Afterwards, Nyssa, who was greatly weakened after almost being converted into a cyborg, collapsed. (TV: Four to Doomsday [+]Loading...["Four to Doomsday (TV story)"])

While Nyssa rested in the TARDIS, the Doctor, Adric and Tegan visited the planet Deva Loka. While Tegan slept in a peaceful location, the Doctor and Adric were arrested by Commander Sanders, who was undergoing a nervous breakdown. With an artefact known as the Box of Jhana provided by the Kinda, Deva Loka's natural inhabitants, they managed to restore his mind. The Doctor then discovered that a malevolent entity known as the Mara had used Tegan to possess a male from the Kinda tribe. Using mirrors, the Doctor was able to force the Mara out, leaving it to perish. He then helped with asking the exploration team to leave Deva Loka. (TV: Kinda [+]Loading...["Kinda (TV story)"])

Another attempt to return Tegan home saw the Doctor land his TARDIS at Heathrow in 1666. The locals accused the Doctor of carrying the plague and hunted him and his friends down, until they were saved by Richard Mace. Allied with Mace, the Doctor and his companions found the Terileptils were enhancing the plague in carrier rats to rid the planet of humans so they could take over. In stopping them, the Doctor had his sonic screwdriver destroyed and accidentally caused the Great Fire of London. (TV: The Visitation [+]Loading...["The Visitation (TV story)"]) The Doctor decided not to replace his sonic screwdriver, despite its usefulness. (TV: Snakedance [+]Loading...["Snakedance (TV story)"])

After experiencing a strange dream, the Doctor found that the TARDIS had materialised on a space station orbiting the planet Dymok, which he soon learned had been created by the Celestial Toymaker to help him find a replacement host for him, now that Rallon was dying. Although the Toymaker attempted to sow discord between the Doctor and his companions, they rallied themselves in time to help the Dymova disrupt the Toymaker's link with Rallon, allowing Rallon to expel the Toymaker from his body by triggering all twelve of his regenerations at once. The Toymaker was subsequently delayed when Rallon's Watcher merged with the Toymaker to keep him in check in the future. (PROSE: Divided Loyalties [+]Loading...["Divided Loyalties (novel)"])

The Doctor visited eastern Europe in the early 11th century, where he tried to help the people of Udilf's town defend themselves against Czar U'thai's forces. The Doctor disapproved of Adric introducing the longbow to Udilf's people, knowing how many deaths the weapon would cause in the future. (PROSE: The Immortals [+]Loading...["The Immortals (short story)"])

Hearing alarms warning about spatial anomalies, the Doctor rushed to a room in a distant corner of the TARDIS without explaining to Adric and Tegan what was going on. There, they found Nyssa lying on the floor with a jewel. Once Nyssa awakened, the Doctor explained that the jewel was a communication node that the Master had given to Susan Foreman, and the Master, during the old days on Gallifrey, had tried using the node to telepathically contact Nyssa to find where the Doctor was. The Doctor explained that the node was hidden among other volatile bits and pieces in that TARDIS room so that the Master and the Time Lords couldn't follow the First Doctor and Susan. (AUDIO: The Toy [+]Loading...["The Toy (audio story)"])

Still trying to get Tegan home, the Doctor answered a psionic distress call from Harry Houdini, who needed his help to stop a fortune teller in 1920s England. However, he found Houdini had been manipulated by the Master, who tried to have the Doctor and his friends killed. But the Doctor managed to stop his revenge plan. Whilst there, he was contacted by his eleventh incarnation, who needed him to return an Ovid sphere to its race. (AUDIO: Smoke and Mirrors [+]Loading...["Smoke and Mirrors (audio story)"])

The Doctor decided to teach Adric how to pilot the TARDIS. When Adric failed a test flight, the Doctor took the TARDIS crew to Gallius Ultima to teach them more about astronomy, but he miscalculated the landing. He went with General Fell on a mission to find out what happened to the humans' spaceship in the Larger Magellanic Cloud and discovered the Star Men. The Doctor realised that Rovus was changing the timelines and warned him that if he tried to control the universe, people would attempt to stop him. (AUDIO: The Star Men [+]Loading...["The Star Men (audio story)"])

The Doctor started to think that something was stopping him from getting back to Heathrow. When the TARDIS lost power, it landed in the Contingency Club. The Doctor was evicted from the club house and thought something was strange when the dimensions outside didn't match the dimension inside, it was much much larger on the outside, making him think that there was a hidden chamber inside. He learnt that the Red Queen was playing a game to take over the Earth with her brother, the Knave. (AUDIO: The Contingency Club [+]Loading...["The Contingency Club (audio story)"])

The Doctor decided to start doing repairs on the TARDIS, but he had to stop as Adric tried to pilot the TARDIS. When Adric and Tegan disappeared, Nyssa and the Doctor followed their trace to Zaltys. They discovered a cryogenic storage ship. He encountered Gevaudan who had psychic powers. After being told by Adric that something was wrong with the trajectory of the meteor, he realised that it was being piloted. He learnt that the meteor was actually a Vampire ship piloted by Clarimonde. (AUDIO: Zaltys [+]Loading...["Zaltys (audio story)"])

As part of Adric's pilot training, the Doctor showed him how to plot a course through the vortex, but there was a problem with the console. The Doctor and company landed on Cicero Prime shortly after this. He was arrested with Nyssa and taken to Sebastian thinking he would find Adric and Tegan there. He was mistaken to be the Scorpion. He didn't want to do the assassination but was later accused of it. He later tired to council the royal couple. The Doctor realised that Amelia and Tomek were the same people. He then tried to negotiate with the real Scorpion. (AUDIO: Kingdom of Lies [+]Loading...["Kingdom of Lies (audio story)"])

The Doctor and his friends landed in Yorkshire in the 17th century following a distress call. He and Tegan found a sacrificial site and then found Adric and Nyssa cold and scared. He had to create a temporal field to relocate his friends to escape the creature, however Tegan stayed behind. By the 21st century he had apparently died and was able to communicate with Leanne. Sabaoth communicated with him after he sent Tegan into the future. He realised that his death wasn't confirmed and thought of him as Schroedinger's ghost, this was because he was actually in a healing coma. He was able to get his companions back from their deaths to help him stop Sabaoth. (AUDIO: Ghost Walk [+]Loading...["Ghost Walk (audio story)"])[statement unclear]

The Doctor travelled to Argentia to collect the relevant crystals he needed to create a new sonic screwdriver. After being caught by Galgo, he had to pretend that he and his colleagues where there to attend the funeral of Carlo Mazzini. After a set of murders, he helped to investigate who did them. He interrogated Maria Mazzini, who was enamoured with him, but she died shortly afterwards. The Doctor was arrested for all the murders. After being locked in the cell, he worked out that Angelo Mazzini was the killer. (AUDIO: Serpent in the Silver Mask [+]Loading...["Serpent in the Silver Mask (audio story)"])

On a trip to Oxfordshire on 11 June 1925, the Doctor was mistaken for a cricket player summoned by Lord Charles Cranleigh. Helping Charles win a match, the Doctor and his friends were invited to a fancy-dress ball to celebrate, (TV: Black Orchid [+]Loading...["Black Orchid (TV story)"]) where the Doctor partook in another game, only for the ball to be stolen by Ace. (COMIC: Time & Time Again [+]Loading...["Time & Time Again (comic story)"]) The Doctor's costume was stolen and used as a disguise during a murder, which led to the Doctor being framed by Lady Cranleigh for the crime. The Doctor cleared his name by revealing the TARDIS, and uncovering a Cranleigh family secret: Charles's supposedly deceased brother, George, who had been mentally and physically scarred by natives during a trip to find a rare flower, was the culprit. George kidnapped Nyssa, who was identical to his ex-fiancée, Ann, but the Doctor and Charles saved her. Unfortunately, George fell off the roof to his death when Charles moved in to hug his brother. (TV: Black Orchid [+]Loading...["Black Orchid (TV story)"])

The Doctor tried to replenish the TARDIS with artron energy, but instead arrived in the middle of a battle between the Rutans and the Sontarans. He, Adric, Nyssa and Tegan were captured by the Rutans and escaped, only to be captured by the Sontarans in turn. After the Doctor looked over their tactical position and discovered that they were doomed, the Sontarans returned him and his companions to the TARDIS, where the Doctor witnessed Adric, Nyssa and Tegan being abducted by Adam Mitchell, and realised that Adam had been in his past before. (COMIC: In Their Nature [+]Loading...["In Their Nature (comic story)"])

Following a chronal trail left by the Eleventh Doctor as the Tenth Doctor merged their TARDISes together, the Fifth Doctor joined his other incarnations as they stormed Adam's fortress in Limbo to save their friends from Adam and the Tremas Master. Though the Master attacked them with Autons, Frobisher was able to free the captured companions, and they helped the Doctors fight off the Autons, as Adam had a change of heart when the Master revealed he intended to use the chronal energies he had stolen across the Doctor's timelines to destroy the universe. After the Master killed Adam as he foiled his plans, the eleven Doctors honoured Adam as a "true companion". (COMIC: Endgame [+]Loading...["Endgame (POT comic story)"])

While Tegan and Nyssa went on a trip together, the Doctor took Adric to Vaga, a planet which he had visited before. Whilst there, they saved a populated Vagan spacecraft from a Pyron space-shark. (PROSE: The Key of Vaga [+]Loading...["The Key of Vaga (short story)"]) The Doctor and Adric visited Ixos-4, a planet of which he had heard some interesting stories. Whilst there, they helped rescue a pair of earwig-like aliens who had crash-landed there some years earlier. (PROSE: Planet of Fear [+]Loading...["Planet of Fear (short story)"])

When the Fourth Doctor used his TARDIS tuner to begin a temporal meta-collision with his other incarnations, the Fifth Doctor learnt that Earth was under threat from a pandimensional entity that had trapped his fourth incarnation in his TARDIS. While the Fifth Doctor argued with his other incarnations, the War Doctor used encoded messages from the Sixth Doctor to stop the invasion before it began, and the Sixth Doctor installed a way to expel the entity from the Fourth Doctor's TARDIS. With the crisis over, the Fifth Doctor went off to have his dinner. (WC: Doctors Assemble! [+]Loading...["Doctors Assemble! (webcast)"])

When the TARDIS landed on Lemaria, the Doctor, Adric, Tegan and Nyssa found they had arrived on Freedom Day; a celebration of when the First Doctor and Susan Foreman freed the Lemarian people from the Megrati. Attending a play that was a re-enactment of the liberation, the Doctor noticed that the actor playing his first incarnation was a future incarnation, and then bore witness to his future self bluffing the Megrati into a retreat when they attempted a second invasion. (PROSE: The Constant Doctor [+]Loading...["The Constant Doctor (short story)"])

When the TARDIS refused to land in a place with a dimensional anomaly, the Doctor went outside and found a damaged spaceship and encountered the Dar Traders, who claimed that the travellers were dead. The Doctor was stabbed by an assassin, but Nyssa helped him by transferring the energies from her Trakenite body and calcified the assassin. (AUDIO: The Darkening Eye [+]Loading...["The Darkening Eye (audio story)"])

When Adric's attempt to pilot the TARDIS caused the ship to land on Fleming's Island, the Doctor and his companions were forced to investigate the mystery of a vanished cult, which led to the discovery that the Cult had found a species of life-form that were essentially sentient numbers, represented as the I, the most impossible number in mathematics. Realising that the cult's actions had drawn in the I Predator and made it aware of N-Space, the Doctor and his companions destroyed the computers that had been used to trap the I and retreated to the TARDIS, cutting the I and its ilk off from existence. (AUDIO: Iterations of I [+]Loading...["Iterations of I (audio story)"])

After having a laugh with Tegan and Nyssa in the control room, (POEM: The Boy Wonder [+]Loading...["The Boy Wonder (poem)"]) the Doctor took the TARDIS to an idyllic world, where he, Tegan and Nyssa spent the day relaxing, whilst Adric visited a glade filled with statues of countless races throughout the universe. He was tempted to transform into a statue, but the Doctor dragged him back to the TARDIS and the crew left the planet, leaving Adric resentful of the Doctor denying him the right to choose his own destiny. (PROSE: Hearts of Stone [+]Loading...["Hearts of Stone (short story)"])

The Doctor and Adric work to disarm the bomb. (TV: Earthshock [+]Loading...["Earthshock (TV story)"])

Adric became distant towards the Doctor, Nyssa and Tegan, causing him to request a return to E-Space, which the Doctor angrily denied out of fear that he would become trapped in the mini-universe again. Visiting Earth to cool off after their argument, the Doctor uncovered a plot by the Neomorph Cybermen to destroy Earth with a Cyber-bomb. After defusing it, he traced the Cybermen to Captain Briggs' space freighter, which they now plotted to use as a giant bomb.

As the freighter shifted through time to the distant past, Adric tried to stop the freighter by cracking logic codes on the ship's controls, but a surviving Cyberman destroyed the controls, causing the freighter to hit the Earth and kill the dinosaurs. Trapped on the freighter, Adric also died. Nyssa and Tegan were devastated, (TV: Earthshock [+]Loading...["Earthshock (TV story)"]) and the Doctor was haunted by his inability to save him for centuries, (COMIC: The Forgotten [+]Loading...["The Forgotten (comic story)"]) leading him to swear that he would not allow another of his companions to die. (PROSE: Goth Opera [+]Loading...["Goth Opera (novel)"])

Still recovering from losing Adric, the Doctor finally managed to return Tegan to Heathrow Airport in 1981, where they were recruited by C19 to investigate a missing Concorde. Taking a trip on another Concorde plane, they, along with the crew, were transported to 140,000,000 BC. They visited a Citadel populated by the previous Concorde passengers, where the Doctor encountered the Master, plotting to use the ancient Xeraphin gestalt as a power source for his TARDIS, which had been badly escaping Castrovalva. Stopping the Master from stealing parts of his own TARDIS, the Doctor abandoned him on Xeriphas to let the Xeraphins take their revenge.

After using his TARDIS to bring the Concorde back to 1981, the Doctor and Nyssa left without giving a farewell to Tegan and set off in the TARDIS once again. (TV: Time-Flight [+]Loading...["Time-Flight (TV story)"])

Lone travels with Nyssa[[edit]]

After a dimensional anomaly apparently resulted in the ghost of Adric appearing in the TARDIS, the Doctor tracked the accompanying dimensional anomaly to 1851, where Queen Victoria had just attended a séance performed by James Lees that put her in touch with her dead husband and told her of a door to the afterlife. The Doctor was able to convince Victoria to appoint him her scientific advisor and investigate the apparent door, learning that it was actually a dimensional anomaly to a world whose natives could assume the appearance of others. With the natives' impression of Earth coloured by the treatment "Lees" had received when he started having visions, the Doctor sealed the rift after rescuing the real Lees, the soldiers who had accompanied the Doctor sacrificing themselves to keep the natives back until the rift was closed.

Travelling to Maine in 1945, the Doctor and Nyssa freed the Veritans that three Dipthodat had been selling while posing as the Acklin family. (PROSE: Tip of the Tongue [+]Loading...["Tip of the Tongue (short story)"])

Visiting an asteroid that he had saved years previously, the Doctor and Nyssa met Earth colony agent, Sebastian Musgrove, the lone survivor of the asteroid following a Dalek attack. They also discovered a dying creature called Telxzana. As her life force was the asteroid's sole continent, her death would result in the asteroid's destruction. Because of this, the Doctor contacted Earth to have Musgrove taken to safety, but not before watching the asteroid's last days. (PROSE: Lonely Days [+]Loading...["Lonely Days (short story)"])

When Nyssa attempted to repair the TARDIS chameleon circuit, the TARDIS transformed into a whale and trapped the Doctor and Nyssa on an isolated island on Earth. The Doctor lured his ship onto the island. Having grown fond of the police box form, the Doctor made the TARDIS change back and ensured that the chameleon circuit would remain broke for the time being. (AUDIO: The Deep [+]Loading...["The Deep (audio story)"])

The Doctor and Nyssa arrived in Alaska, where they found prehistoric Permian creatures waking from a long period of hibernation, as well as deformed hybrids wandering the ice fields. The Doctor was forced to destroy the Permians before they could spread over Earth, and claimed that the hybrids would soon die without the energies of the Permians to sustain them.

After Nyssa disappeared whilst the Doctor was making a Spillager detector, he tracked her to a boarding school in Switzerland in 1963. Investigating the poltergeist activity in the school, he discovered psychic ability in the two pupils Alison Speer and Peril Bellamy and deduced they had been brought together by Spillager scouts to open a gateway to allow them to invade. He had the girls turn their abilities on the scouts, but they were too worn out to stop the invasion forcing the Doctor to turn to Nyssa, whose rudimentary abilities proved sufficient to close the gateway. Afterwards the Doctor gave Alison and Peril a lift home in the TARDIS. (AUDIO: Winter for the Adept [+]Loading...["Winter for the Adept (audio story)"])

After Nyssa repaired the proximity sensor on the TARDIS, the Doctor accidentally piloted the TARDIS into a time tunnel in the vortex. Landing in America during the 22nd century Dalek invasion, they were almost caught by the Daleks. Managing to escape, they got trapped in the time tunnel dragging them to the 42nd century where the Earth had been ravaged by the Mutant Phase. Learning that this was caused by mutagenic in a Dalek from the invasion, the Doctor went back with a set of Thal scientists to stop it, but discovered that the whole affair was caused by a time paradox created by accident by the Dalek Emperor.

Having landed on Mondas before it returned to the solar system, the Doctor at first tried to resist interfering but ultimately tried to warn the locals about what was happening relating to the creation of the Cybermen. His actions saw him arrested and his alien biology drew the attention of Doctorman Christine Allan, who used him as a template to improve the Cybermen who at this time were consistently failing. After Mondas fell victim to a cosmic storm, he helped the Mondasians destroy the Central Committee which had accelerated the conversion program in response. He and Nyssa hoped this may alter history somewhat, however Cyber Commander Zheng survived and restarted the program shortly after they left.

The Doctor travelled to Stockbridge to continue playing cricket. Meanwhile, Melanicus, having seized control of the Event Synthesizer from the Prime Mover, used it to wreak havoc on time.

While investigating the cause of the distortion, the Doctor met Sir Justin of Wells, who was plucked from a joust in his own time. Justin accompanied the Doctor to Gallifrey and the Althrace system to attend a meeting with the High Evolutionaries of Althrace who explained the situation.

Eventually, with the help of Rassilon, Merlin the Wise and Celestial Intervention Agent Shayde, the Doctor confronted Melanicus, who had hidden the Event Synthesizer in a time-altered version of the local church. Justin, the Doctor and Shayde fought Melanicus, with Justin dealing the killing blow at the cost of his own life, restoring the universe to normal.

The Doctor wanted to take his friends on holiday, but Marc collapsed after changing the coordinates. He thought that Marc wanted to come here because of the sleep technology on the planetoid. Chelmer questioned him about why he was on the planetoid. He learnt about the nightmares that the workers were having. To find out more he went into the sleep machines as he thought the Daleks were manipulating them. He got the Daleks to scan him to stop them exterminating him and Nyssa and instead taking them to the Dalek Supreme. He theorised that there was a Dalek base dormant under the rig and devised a plan to disrupt their signals to the base. He realised that the Daleks didn't physically exist and only existed as pure hatred. He used his Time Lord telepathy to keep the Daleks at bay and wanted to stay there, but Marc decided to use his cyber-enhanced body to do it.

When Tegan began having precognitive dreams of the Mara, the Doctor decided to deal with the problem on the Mara's home planet, Manussa, where the Doctor sought help from a snake-dancer named Dojjen. According to him, the Doctor had to find his "still point"; the Mara fed on negative emotions, but if one found this internal spot, they would be safe from being fed on. Taking advantage of this knowledge, the Doctor starved the Mara to death, freeing Tegan of its influence. (TV: Snakedance [+]Loading...["Snakedance (TV story)"])

The Doctor was summoned back to Gallifrey by a distress signal sent by Cardinal Hemal, where he and Nyssa were asked to help investigate the mysterious murder of a Time Lord. The Doctor recognised it as a vampire killing, and spotted tattoos on the dead man's wrist which identified him as a member of one of the minor committees; he soon traced the killer to one of them, the cult of Rassilon the Vampire, with the madman having acquired a strand of real vampire DNA and infected himself. Returning to the TARDIS with no leads, they found that the vampire had in fact infiltrated the TARDIS and infected Tegan. Held hostage, the Doctor was forced to pilot the TARDIS to Earth. However, thanks to Nyssa sneakily adjusting the coordinates, he materialised the ship daylight, which destroyed him and returned Tegan to normal. While Nyssa remained concerned that they would run into more of the Great Vampires' legacy, the Doctor dismissed her worries, claiming that no one would be foolish enough to resurrect a vampire. Events, however, were about to prove him wrong. (COMIC: Blood Invocation [+]Loading...["Blood Invocation (comic story)"])

When the TARDIS got stuck in a warp ellipse and materialised on a starliner in 1983, the Doctor became trapped at Brendon Public School, where he met a teenage alien in exile named Vislor Turlough, who the Black Guardian persuaded to kill the Doctor in return for being taken back to his homeworld. He also reunited with the Brigadier, who had forgotten their adventures at UNIT and was now a teacher at Brendon's School.

The Doctor found a transmat capsule was responsible for his entrap on Earth; it exploded, sending the TARDIS, containing Nyssa and Tegan, to 1977. After jogging the Brigadier's memory, he and the Doctor went to the spaceship, where the Brigadier from 1977 also was. Mawdryn, one of nine aliens who abused Time Lord technology to become immortal, now wished to die and, at first, it seemed the Doctor would have to sacrifice his remaining regenerations to power a machine to save his companions and kill Mawdryn. Due to the Black Guardian's manipulation of Turlough, the two Brigadiers met and the resulting effect gave the younger Brigadier amnesia and provided power for the machine. The Doctor returned the Brigadiers to their proper times and welcomed Turlough on board, unaware that his latest companion was his assassin.

The Doctor was summoned to Gallifrey to track down Ophiuchus, with the High Council wanting to eliminate him for apparently experimenting on Time Lords. Heading to the Cloisters with Tegan, Nyssa and Turlough, the Doctor found Ophiuchus in a secret lab, where he explained that he was trying to break the regeneration limit. As Ophiuchus was dying, the Doctor helped him to regenerate into their fourteenth incarnation and then advised her to flee Gallifrey, promising to tell the High Council that Ophiuchus was destroyed by his experiments.

On the Black Guardian's command, Turlough sabotaged the TARDIS, and the ship locked onto a spaceship carrying victims of Lazar's disease to Terminus. Terminus had originally caused the Big Bang and was about to reverse it, destroying the universe. The Doctor charmed the Garm, who prevented the engines from blowing up. Nyssa decided to stay on Terminus to help perfect a cure for Lazar's disease, which upset the Doctor, who was left to travel on with Tegan and Turlough.

While fixing Turlough's sabotage, the Doctor encountered the White Guardian and was ordered to visit an Edwardian yacht-like spaceship piloted by Eternals in a race for Enlightenment. One Eternal, Wrack, sought the prize to end her boredom, and used the Black Guardian's power to destroy other ships.

After the Doctor and Turlough won the race, both Guardians offered them the prize. Realising Turlough was in league with the Black Guardian, the Doctor offered him the prize to test his virtue. Though the Black Guardian tempted him with anything he wanted in exchange for the Doctor's life, Turlough rejected the offer, making the Black Guardian vanish.

Two days after leaving Terminus, the TARDIS was forced down to the planet Helheim, where the Doctor, Tegan and Turlough reunited with Nyssa, who had lived fifty years since staying behind on Terminus. Nyssa arrived on Helheim to find a cure for Richter's Syndrome, which led her to an abandoned base, where they found robotic Cractids, and four bodies covered in cobwebs, which resembled the Doctor, Tegan, Turlough and Nyssa. To discover what happened to the base, they all travelled to the past, where they discovered that the Cractids were attempting to construct clones of the TARDIS crew, explaining why their bodies were left in the base. The Doctor then used his TARDIS, to divert his TARDIS in the past, to arrive on Helheim in the first place. After the Doctor failed to return her home, Nyssa rejoined the TARDIS crew.

When the Doctor attempted to drive the Mara out of Tegan, it changed its tactics and secretly entered into the Doctor's mind, leaving Tegan completely.

Taking the TARDIS to Manussa after reading about its history, the Mara landed the ship before the rise of the Sumaran Empire, and embarked on a scheme to bring about the subjugation of Manussa in that time period instead, keeping the Doctor as its primary host while possessing several Manussans. However, Tegan and Turlough were able to free the Doctor using a circle of television cameras and screens, and the Doctor linked the crystal the Mara was using as a link to the material world to the TARDIS so he could reverse the creature's physical manifestation. However, the process required that the crystal be in physical contact with the Mara, and the giant snake, fuelled by the despair of the many Manussans it had managed to possess, had swallowed the TARDIS whole. In the end, a young man who had been brought into existence by the crystal technology sacrificed himself by going out into the snake's belly with the crystal, destroying it by "restoring the balance".

While attending the grand opening gala of Professor Vittorio Levi's museum dedicated to the preservation of Earth's art and antiquities at a space station in orbit around Earth, Tegan was again overtaken by the Mara due to Levi's speech triggering her memories of it. Using Tegan's subconscious to gain a psychic hold on Kamelion, transforming him a Medusa-like serpent with Tegan's face, the Mara began turning the party-goers into stone. However, the Doctor defeated the Mara by having Tegan face it, forcing the Mara to relinquish its control of Kamelion when confronted with its own image.

When he asked for Kamelion's help in restoring the console, the TARDIS crashed into Orna's ship. The Doctor later had to pilot half the ship into landing when the power started failing. In the crash, he became paralysed but Turlough thought he had broken his back. He used a hover sled to get around, and used it to save Turlough when he fell of a cliff. He then got Turlough to pilot the TARDIS. He thought that Tegan was in control of Kamelion because of her strong will. He worked out that Tegan's wounds were healed by nanites in the stream, and hoped they could cure him. The guardian of the spring tried to stop him so that the secret of the spring would remain, but the Doctor was able to convince the guardian to heal him by arguing that if he died here his enemies would all come to the spring to celebrate.

The Doctor tried to take his friends to New York for a holiday, but when they materialised in York, Kamelion again fell victim to an alien threat when an other-dimensional entity who termed herself "the Hostess" managed to take remote control of him, forcing him to gather humans to collect power sources for her weapons. Tegan and Turlough were eventually forced to take part in the game, but the Doctor was able to disrupt the entity's control of Kamelion, forcing the Hostess to return to her dimension and be punished by her people for her actions. (AUDIO: Power Game [+]Loading...["Power Game (audio story)"])

As they left York, the TARDIS received a signal from Kamelion's own home planet, drawing him back along with others of his kind. After they followed the signal to a deserted world, the Doctor learned that Kamelion's original designers had been the centre of a vast empire, after the native Kamile uploaded their minds to the Locus when their planet suffered an environmental catastrophe that made it impossible to sustain life, using the Kamelion as a means of remotely enforcing their will on other worlds (the Doctor noted that this didn't match The Master's original description of Kamelion's history, but Kamelion observed that The Master was a notorious liar). Eventually, the Kamile within the Locus came together as four distinct factions that were essentially amalgamations of the original individual personas uploaded into it, titling themselves Authority, Liberty, Harmony and Chaos, with these factions eventually coming into conflict in a day-long war that involved their entire empire and its artificial intelligences, leaving Chaos trapped on that world. Chaos tried to use Kamelion to take control of the TARDIS, but Kamelion retained just enough control of himself to stop his body being used to harm his friends, allowing the Doctor, Tegan and Turlough to thwart Chaos's attempt to change history and then trap him in a secondary console room in the TARDIS before transferring Chaos back into the Locus. Despite Chaos's final defeat, Kamelion initially requested that he be abandoned on that planet so that he couldn't hurt anyone else, only accepting a compromise where he would remain in an isolated room in the TARDIS, trying to protect himself from being used by others against his friends.

He became embroiled in the battle between Druids and Romans and witnessed many Druid slaughters. However, he managed to save Ffion and his friends by instructing Kamelion to disguise himself as a Roman soldier.

While holidaying at Smithwood Manor, the Doctor was playing a game of cricket when he encountered the Judoon, who had come to Earth to retrieve the Eye of Akasha, which the Doctor had. The Doctor was willing to hand the Eye over to them, but the Judoon immediately threatened Tegan's life and demanded the Eye from the Doctor. Upset that his friends were being threatened unnecessarily, the Doctor pretended to hand over the Eye, but switched it out with a cricket ball. Due to the two items looking similar, the Judoon assumed the item had simply changed molecular properties and left. (COMIC: The Forgotten [+]Loading...["The Forgotten (comic story)"])

The TARDIS was torn apart by the Tractators after being pulled to the planet Frontios. These aliens were stranded on the planet and needed wreckage to make a functional ship. The Doctor tricked them into rebuilding the TARDIS, with their leader, the Gravis, inside, separating him from the rest of the Tractators and leaving them without their hive mind. (TV: Frontios [+]Loading...["Frontios (TV story)"])

While attempting to transport the Gravis to Kolkokron with Tegan, the Doctor crashed on the planet Artaris, where he met Lord Grayvorn, who was on a quest to look for and artefact called "the Relic". After arriving in a nunnery to get the maps to find the Relic, the Doctor encountered Iris Wildthyme, who accompanied them on their quest. When they discovered the location of the Relic, they found that it was being guarded by zombies that were resurrected by the Relic. However, they managed to steal the Relic and arrived back at the convent. Upon their return to the convent, Grayvorn and the Mother Superior fought over the Relic and fell off the convent bell tower to their apparent deaths. The Relic was lost again.

Making plans to return to Frontios for Turlough, the Doctor and Tegan were drawn to Gallifrey by Chancellor Vorena and Castellan Lowri so that the Doctor would be forced into his role as Lord President, as Borusa's political manipulations in anticipation of his immortality had left the High Council unfit to carry out the necessary reforms after Borusa had created a system that depended on his presence, with the Doctor being chosen as the only candidate with the political strength to get things done. With Leela as his unofficial bodyguard and Tegan appointed as Earth's ambassador to justify her continued presence on Gallifrey, the Doctor used the opportunity to make some changes to Gallifrey's political process that he felt were necessary, such as opening new Academies capable of conferring the rank of Time Lord to their students.

After a short time in power, during which he conducted a diplomatic mission and averted a student creating a catastrophic paradox, the Doctor finally opened the new Capitol building accompanied by Vorena, Leela and Lowri. After they encountered dimensional anomalies, Vorena confessed the building was a giant TARDIS which she had arranged for him so that he could lead the Time Lords in righting the evils of the cosmos. He eventually chose to reject her offer, with Leela helping the Doctor recognise that taking such a stance would turn himself and his people into tyrants enforcing their will on other civilisations. They were rescued from the malfunctioning giant TARDIS by Tegan and the Doctor took the opportunity to relinquish the presidency, passing it on to Lowri, and depart Gallifrey once more.

After many detours, the Doctor and Tegan collected Turlough from Frontios and became caught in a time corridor. (TV: Frontios [+]Loading...["Frontios (TV story)"]) Escaping from the time corridor, the TARDIS crew found themselves in Snowdonia, Wales during a UNIT training excerise where they seemingly reunite with the Brigadier. Uncovering a plot orchestrated by the Autons and the Master, who had disguised himself as the Brigadier, the Doctor was captured to be used as a "keystone" for an ancient Vortex Driller.

He was later rescued by Turlough and the real Brigadier, who had encountered an earlier version of the Doctor inhabiting an Auton duplicate body. They escaped back to Snowdonia through a bridge connecting it to the Driller, which proceeded to close and leaving the Doctor's TARDIS as an empty shell. The Doctor proceeded to use the Master's TARDIS, having discovered it disguised as a circus tent earlier on, to track down where the Driller is heading: Saturn.

Arriving back onboard the Vortex Driller, the Doctor witnessed the Nestene Consciousness attempt to take control of the Driller. Contacted by Kamelion and his earlier self, now a psychic projection, the Doctor headed off alongside Tegan in the Master's TARDIS to help forumlate a plan of stopping the Consciousness. He didn't recall leaping through his personal timeline, nor did Tegan remember him collapsing after departing the Urbankan spaceship, leading to the Doctor to realise that his earlier self was actually a disintegrating splinter.

After successfully defeating the Consciousness, the Doctor told his splinter that he cannot return to his point of origin, especially with the knowledge of Adric's death. Instead, he watched as the splinter made "one last adventure" into the future where he would then fade away. With the TARDIS interior reinstated by Kamelion, the TARDIS crew departed from Wales, only to be targeted by another time corridor. (AUDIO: The Auton Infinity [+]Loading...["The Auton Infinity (audio story)"])

Falling through the time corridor, the Doctor ran into the Daleks loyal to Davros at the London Docks in 1984. The Doctor failed to stop them from attacking the prison ship that he placed Davros in years previously. After resisting the urge to kill Davros in cold blood, the Doctor unleashed the Movellan virus, which destroyed the Daleks.

Having won against Davros, the Doctor was dismayed when Tegan, tiring of the violence and death she had encountered during their adventures, chose to remain in her home time. After she ran away from the TARDIS, the Doctor acknowledged that he needed to change his ways. (TV: Resurrection of the Daleks [+]Loading...["Resurrection of the Daleks (TV story)"])

In Brazil in 2080, the Doctor and Turlough encountered a band of Loups-garoux whose leader, Ileana de Santos, became attracted to the Doctor. After Pieter Stubbe forcibly took over the group to have Ileana as his mate and set them against humans, the Doctor challenged him. After halting the group's rampage in Rio de Janeiro by planting doubts about Stubbe's leadership, the Doctor tricked him into entering the TARDIS, taking him far away from Earth which caused him to die. Afterwards he said a private farwell to Ileana. (AUDIO: Loups-Garoux [+]Loading...["Loups-Garoux (audio story)"])

During a visit to the human colony world of Raghi, the Doctor and Turlough discovered a strange new disease that was sweeping the colony, as well as several missing scientists, but soon determined that the Sontarans were the parties responsible for these events. The Doctor realised that Raghi's entire population was being used as bait for a trap, as the disease caused all humans infected with it to register as Sontarans on the Rutan scanners, which would prompt the Rutans to avoid that area of space, and thus give the Sontarans unrestricted access to the Tzun technology hidden on the planet. Contacting the Rutans, the Doctor managed to make a deal with them, exchanging the truth about the colony, while avoiding mentioning the Tzun technology, for their promise not to harm the humans, provoking a conflict between the two enemies that essentially destroyed both parties.

The expedition was able to destroy the Warden's citadel, but, after the Doctor was trapped in the dying park and rescued by Kamelion, he realised that the Phiadorans were actually being used as hosts by the ruthless Vrall. Using advanced weapons salvaged from the park, the Doctor, Turlough and Kamelion were able to destroy the Vrall, followed by Kamelion posing as Prince Albert to convince Queen Victoria to abandon the space program, although Richard Haliwell gave the Doctor his diary so that some record of the expedition would remain.

On Vakrass' request, the Doctors travelled to the lost moon of Gallifrey, via a portal formed by the medallions each Doctor had found, to find Gostak. The Doctors learned that the moon was a complex temporal manipulation device that Gostak intended to use to undo the last few thousand millennia to re-establish the Time Lords as a vast empire. The Doctors refused to help his plans, with Gostak's efforts to force their aid being cut short as the Doctors turned the moon's power against itself, aided by the arrival of the Seventh Doctor with a control rod for the moon's system.

When a summons from medieval England seemed an unsuitable place to start her travels, the Doctor had Peri remain in the TARDIS library while he investigated. He found that his first incarnation had called upon him and his other incarnations to help him escape a castle surrounded by knights that mistook him for a kidnapper holding Lady Mary hostage in his TARDIS. After he lost the contest to determine who would face the knights, the Fifth Doctor approached the knights to explain the situation and was able to retrieve Mary from the First Doctor's TARDIS. As the Doctors were now permitted to leave, the Fifth Doctor saw that Peri was still travelling with the Sixth Doctor, and realised he would soon regenerate.

Although "Red" sacrificed himself to save Peri, the Doctor was left satisfied as he learned the truth about Cartovall's disappearance, as the man had abandoned his wealth to explore the limitless possibilities of the universe. Other seekers for the treasure either departed satisfied with what they had or were destroyed by their own greed as various traps and twists left them suffocated or locked in artificial realities.

Second quest for the Key to Time[[edit]]

Shortly after leaving Mars, the Doctor visited a rainy planet with Peri. He discovered a compass, which was actually a segment of the Key to Time, from one of the derelict ships, The Green Man's Burden. After time was frozen, a sentient tracer sent by the Grace to collect the Key to Time brought the TARDIS off course, asking the Doctor if he could help her collect two more segments of the Key, which had been decaying after the Doctor put it together the previous time. The tracer turned the first segment into its original form and put it into a satchel leading to another universe.

Arriving on Mars in the distant past, the Doctor decided to name the Tracer "Amy", thinking she had agreed upon the name. Amy realised the segment of the Key was disguised as a capstone on the pyramid in the town. The Doctor and Amy were arrested and taken to Magistrate Isskar, accused of being thieves by Isskar's beadles. They were let go with a warning not to approach the pyramid. Understanding but disobeying the warning, the Doctor and Amy met another tracer inside the pyramid, and she already had one of the segments of the Key in her possession, along her assistant in her quest, Harmonious 14 Zink. The Tracer agreed to the Doctor's suggestion of "Zara" as a name. At the top of the pyramid, Zara touched the segment and turned it back into a crystal. This caused a gravity well to appear, causing massive changes to Mars' environment. Zara left with the segment using Zink's Time Ring. The Doctor, Amy and Zink jumped on board an approaching ship, and the Doctor piloted it to safety. Unable to help the catastrophe inflicted on Mars, the Doctor and Amy left in the TARDIS for their next destination. They arrived inside a castle on the ring world of Safeplace, where there was a succession dispute between the Valdigians Lady Mesca Amuntic and Wembik. The Doctor concocted an anti-venom for Mesca, whom Wembik had poisoned because she refused to allow Mesca's son to become king.

Meanwhile, the Ice Warriors, led by Isskar, were guided to Safeplace by Zara to find the next segment, and began fighting the Valdigians. When the Ice Warriors were repelled, Amy worked out a compromise between Mesca and Wembik; they agreed to be married to one another, so that no matter whose son became king, he would also be the son of the other one. While the Doctor asked Isskar to speak to him, his men brought Amy outside the castle grounds. Zara realised the castle was the next segment and turned it into a crystal, trapping the Doctor, the TARDIS, the Valdigians and Isskar inside. The Doctor struggled to hold on, before Amy, having received the segment in her battle with Zara, turned the segment back into a castle, allowing the Doctor, the Ice Warriors and the Valdigians to escape. Amy then turned it back into a crystal and placed it into her satchel.

The Ice Warriors took the Doctor and Amy onto Isskar's ship to take them as tribunal; Isskar confiscated the segments and sent the TARDIS overboard while the ship was in hyperspace in the event of the Doctor and Amy's escape. Zara, being unable to detect Amy's segments, travelled back in time with the time ring, having "wrecked the controls" of the ship. The ship was on a collision course with the red giant, Leboon. Isskar showed Amy her segments, hidden outside time inside a strongbox, which Amy opened. When the last escape pod was taken, leaving the Doctor and Amy behind, the Doctor tried fixing the ship, before the Black Guardian intervened, telling the Doctor that he hoped the Doctor could explain the situation. (AUDIO: The Judgement of Isskar [+]Loading...["The Judgement of Isskar (audio story)"])

The Black Guardian showed the Doctor and Amy a set of potential locations for the Key. Noticing that the Black Guardian was being methodical in his approach, the Doctor told him to randomly send the Doctor and Amy to a location. Landing in Sudan in the 9th century, the Doctor encountered the White Guardian whose powers had waned and was posing as Legate of the Caliph going after tax evaders. He then discovered that the Black Guardian was a tax evader, who was hoarding gold to allow his compatriot the Djinn to repair his ship. When this happened, the Doctor realised that the Guardians had to be involved in its creation and it was beyond time. The Djinn had recovered his TARDIS and he left with Amy for the final piece.

Landing on a Teuthoidian ship, the Doctor encountered Astra who was now president on a rival ship which the Teuthodian's kept attacking. Having being transported to Astra's ship, she told him that she had been living for longer than her fellow Atrions due to the affect of her being released from the Key. Crashing on the planet Chaos, he realised that Zara had kidnapped Amy as Zara thought that he would lead her to the last segment. Having contacted Romana II in the confusion, thinking that Astra was her, the Doctor discovered that after the Key was scattered the last time, Romana had become the final segment of it. To save Romana's life, Astra offered to become the final segment instead, even if it involved her dying to do so. When the White and Black Guardians arrived to try to take the Key away from the Doctor, the Doctor threw it into the Chaos Pool, where it was destroyed, preventing the degradation that it was causing to the universe. While the Guardians left empty handed, Romana returned to Gallifrey, allowing Amy and Zara to accompany her. (AUDIO: The Chaos Pool [+]Loading...["The Chaos Pool (audio story)"])

The Doctor went to the Gogglebox inside the Moon, though his intended destination was the Ice Caves of Shabadabadon. The TARDIS detected unusual energy signatures which appeared throughout Earth history, including 1984 and 2006. As he detected a television transmission which indicated that a future incarnation was investigating 1984, the Doctor went to Brisbane, Australia on 22 September 2006.

While in Brisbane, he met up with Tegan, as well as Dr. Katherine Chambers, who seemed to know about him, and learned that Tegan had contracted an alien brain tumour that was killing her. He offered to take her some place her tumour could be cured, but she was kidnapped by Katherine and an accomplice. Katherine revealed she had been Peri's best friend when they were in school, and that the Doctor, in his next incarnation, would be involved in a plot involving the Cybermen that would result in the paralysis of Katherine's brother and the death of her father. Katherine kidnapped Tegan for the first patient of her new medical computer.

Landing on YT45, the Doctor, Peri and Erimem became affected by the Kyropites. Not being as affected by the plants as his companions, the Doctor discovered that the Hayton wanted to sell their properties on the open market. Learning that eventually the plants would kill his friends, he used his psychic abilities to enter their dreams. Though he convinced Erimem that she wasn't the ruler of a new Egyptian colony, he had a harder time convincing Peri that she wasn't married with kids. (AUDIO: The Mind's Eye [+]Loading...["The Mind's Eye (audio story)"])

The Doctor, Peri and Erimem answered a distress call from the Ice Warrior prince and ambassador, Zixlyr in the 41st century. Zixlyr had blown up an explosive within his ship to smuggle a Xanthoid volataliser onto Peladon after his sister, the previous ambassador to Peladon, Alixlyr, had disappeared; he claimed he had been attacked by Arcturans and knew that if he entered Peladon through more conventional means, the volataliser would have been detected. As the ship began to fall towards Peladon, part of the ship's hull broke off, leaving the TARDIS around Peladon's orbit and making escape impossible. The Doctor, Peri and Erimem helped Zixlyr safely crash land the ship as it entered Peladon's atmosphere, crashing it into a forest. Zixlyr and Peri went to the citadel of Peladon, while Erimem took care of the Doctor as he recovered.

An Aggedor, the daughter of the late Aggedor the Third Doctor had befriended, began approaching the Doctor and Erimem. The Doctor used Erimem's signet ring to hypnotise and tame her. Queen Belldonia of the royal house of Peladon discovered them while on a hunt and escorted the Doctor and Erimem back to the citadel.

An explosion set off by the criminal Arktos and his accomplice, Elkin, had ripped apart the floor of the nearby mines, killing the miners inside. Within the wreckage, Erimem discovered a message in Egyptian hieroglyphs warning of the Osiran Sekhmet, whom the Egyptians worshipped as a god. The Doctor found a secret passageway leading to Sekhmet's trisilicate tomb, where three of her four blood locks had been broken after she fed on the blood of three royal women, including Alixlyr and the newly crowned King Pelleas' predecessor, Queen Elspera, and used the Aggedor to break down the door. Erimem offered her blood to Sekhmet, but had poisoned it with mandrake root that was inside her ring. Zixlyr grabbed onto Sekhmet and set the countdown on his volataliser. Zixlyr sealed the chamber, blowing himself up along with Sekhmet. The Doctor and Erimem escaped, but Erimem was still dying from her poison. Peri used the Time Lord biochemistry in the Doctor's blood to revive Erimem by performing a "very crude" blood transfusion on her.

King Pelleas proposed to Erimem, and she accepted. She parted company from Peri and the Doctor, staying behind to rule Peladon. The Doctor and Peri departed for the TARDIS, still in orbit around Peladon with the help of Alpha Centauri's ship. (AUDIO: The Bride of Peladon [+]Loading...["The Bride of Peladon (audio story)"])

As they dealt with gun runners, government troops, crooked politicians and a masked madman called Sharaz Jek, the Doctor and Peri were exposed to raw spectrox and contracted the fatal Spectrox toxaemia. Through a perilous descent into the lower caves of the planet, the Doctor managed to get his hands on the milk of a queen bat, the only known cure for the poisoning, but he was only able to recover one dose. He then chose to give Peri the dose, saving her life at the cost of his own.

Succumbing to the poisoning, the Doctor collapsed on the floor of the TARDIS, not entirely sure if he would regenerate, commenting aloud that the regenerative process "[felt] different this time". (TV: The Caves of Androzani [+]Loading...["The Caves of Androzani (TV story)"]) During his regeneration, the Tremas Master tried to interfere via Kamelion's lingering connection to the TARDIS, but the Doctor was saved by Nyssa and her husband, Lasarti, who connected with him in his mindscape and helped break the mental link allowing the Master to block his regeneration.

In a negated timeline, the Doctor and Nyssa followed mysterious coordinates to 23 November 1963, but the Doctor landed the TARDIS earlier than the coordinates indicated to avoid a trap. Investigating their surroundings, the Doctor and Nyssa were approached by Bob Dovie, who mistook them for the police officers he had contacted about his missing family, and discovered that Dovie's wife and children had been murdered by the Decayed Master. As they made their way back to the TARDIS, Dovie followed them, and his refusal to believe in the TARDIS set off the conceptual bomb the Master had planted on him, causing the TARDIS to explode, but the Doctor was saved by his sixth incarnation. Joining with his other selves to formulate a plan to stop the Master, the Fifth Doctor realised the solution was to visit Dovie a year earlier and introduce him to the TARDIS, so that he would find it more believable when he had the conceptual bomb and it would not go off. Once his plan succeeded, the Fifth Doctor joined his other seven incarnations in preparing to time ram the Master's TARDIS. However, rather than kill the Master, the First Doctor instead turned off the automatic distress actions, which had brought all of the Doctors to the pocket dimension and triggered the TARDIS' destruction, making it so none of that had happened.

In a splintered timeline, (AUDIO: The Auton Infinity [+]Loading...["The Auton Infinity (audio story)"]) after departing from the Urbankan spaceship, the Doctor passed out almost immediately after Nyssa collapsed, and found himself pulled along his own timeline. He first ended up in the body of his future self, at a point where Adric had "left" the TARDIS and Tegan had recently resumed her travels with him and Nyssa. The Doctor soon discovered the TARDIS had jumped back along her temporal vector, looking for a stable time track, and he believed he has done the same thing. (AUDIO: Secrets of Telos [+]Loading...["Secrets of Telos (audio story)"])

Next, he found himself in the body of his "near-future" self, with the TARDIS having just arrived in 9th century Iceland. He is relieved to see Adric again and, during an encounter with Ice Warriors, confides in him about his recent "time shifting" as he had done so with the future Nyssa and Tegan. After defeating the Ice Warriors, the Doctor felt himself be pulled along his timeline once again (AUDIO: God of War [+]Loading...["God of War (audio story)"]) and woke up in a cell next to the Brigadier, who recognised his current incarnation. He then reunited with Tegan, explaining how he had time shifted again, which becomes clear when he fails to recognise Turlough.

The Doctor is soon briefed on the Autons and the "Tremas" Master's scheme and, during an encounter with a Nestene, discovered that he is not in the body of his future self, but rather an Auton duplicate. He is later confronted by the Master, who initially believed him to merely be a convincing double, but soon realised he can use the "Auton Doctor" as a replacement "keystone" for piloting the Vortex Driller after the "future Doctor" escapes. Due to the Doctor being in an Auton body, the process did not work correctly and caused the "Auton Doctor" to be displaced once again, only this time he ended up as a psychic projection within his TARDIS next to another future companion called Kamelion.

After making contact with his future self, the Doctor helped formulate a plan to stop the Nestene Consciousness taking control of the Driller. After successfully defeating the Consciousness, it is revealed that the displaced Doctor was actually a disintegrating splinter and could no longer return to his intial point of origin. The splinter was allowed to make one last trip into the future, where he met Peri and positively reflected on his future before fading away.

Deducing that this particular TARDIS lives on stories, the Doctor decides that he and Tegan need to tell the strongest story of all, the day they met the CyberNeomorphs and Adric died. After finishing recounting the experience, the Doctor comments that he never looked back at what had happened, to which Tegan wonders if the Memory TARDIS had called them here to help heal old wounds. The Doctor remarks that talking about those events has done him good, and he then asks Tegan to tell him stories about her life. (TV: Earthshock [+]Loading...["Earthshock (TotT TV story)"])

No longer trying to be "old and grumpy and important" like his previous incarnations, (TV: Time Crash [+]Loading...["Time Crash (TV story)"]) though worried his youthful body would not be taken seriously, (AUDIO: Smoke and Mirrors [+]Loading...["Smoke and Mirrors (audio story)"]) the Fifth Doctor was very open and vulnerable in his naivety, trying to focus on seeing the friendlier side of the universe by giving aliens the benefit of the doubt towards their intentions, opting to "look on the bright side" when things looked grim. (TV: Four to Doomsday [+]Loading...["Four to Doomsday (TV story)"], The Visitation [+]Loading...["The Visitation (TV story)"], Warriors of the Deep [+]Loading...["Warriors of the Deep (TV story)"]) He gained trust by proving himself with his honesty instead of using his vast experience as an excuse to take charge. (TV: Black Orchid [+]Loading...["Black Orchid (TV story)"], Snakedance [+]Loading...["Snakedance (TV story)"], The King's Demons [+]Loading...["The King's Demons (TV story)"], Warriors of the Deep [+]Loading...["Warriors of the Deep (TV story)"]) Indeed, he could easily fall into the thrall of those who had the strong command presence that he lacked. (TV: Earthshock [+]Loading...["Earthshock (TV story)"], The Five Doctors [+]Loading...["The Five Doctors (TV story)"], The Caves of Androzani [+]Loading...["The Caves of Androzani (TV story)"]) However, he would take charge in moments of intensity, (TV: Kinda [+]Loading...["Kinda (TV story)"], Frontios [+]Loading...["Frontios (TV story)"], Resurrection of the Daleks [+]Loading...["Resurrection of the Daleks (TV story)"]) and, while he needed a piece of the Great Crystal to face down the Mara, (TV: Snakedance [+]Loading...["Snakedance (TV story)"]) the Doctor could still call upon great willpower when the need arose. (TV: The King's Demons [+]Loading...["The King's Demons (TV story)"], Planet of Fire [+]Loading...["Planet of Fire (TV story)"], Dimensions in Time [+]Loading...["Dimensions in Time (TV story)"])

Unlike his other incarnations, he would seek out the highest authority when he landed so as to make his case for cooperation, (TV: Warriors of the Deep [+]Loading...["Warriors of the Deep (TV story)"]) though his trouble with being assertive would often lead to him running afoul with local authorities and being arrested or imprisoned. (TV: Kinda [+]Loading...["Kinda (TV story)"], Black Orchid [+]Loading...["Black Orchid (TV story)"], Snakedance [+]Loading...["Snakedance (TV story)"], The Caves of Androzani [+]Loading...["The Caves of Androzani (TV story)"]) He would particularly earn the ire of authoritative figures when his actions were mistaken for tomfoolery or treachery. (TV: Earthshock [+]Loading...["Earthshock (TV story)"], The King's Demons [+]Loading...["The King's Demons (TV story)"])

His young appearance was reflected in the youthfulness of his companions, whom he treated akin to how a teacher would treat their schoolchildren, to the point of patronising them, (TV: Four to Doomsday [+]Loading...["Four to Doomsday (TV story)"], Snakedance [+]Loading...["Snakedance (TV story)"], The Caves of Androzani [+]Loading...["The Caves of Androzani (TV story)"]) and would scold them severely when their failure to heed his instructions resulted in him being put at a disadvantage. (TV: Enlightenment [+]Loading...["Enlightenment (TV story)"])

He could also lose his temper when around someone who annoyed him, (TV: Time Crash [+]Loading...["Time Crash (TV story)"]) and was known to get impatient when pressed for time. (TV: Castrovalva [+]Loading...["Castrovalva (TV story)"], The Visitation [+]Loading...["The Visitation (TV story)"], Arc of Infinity [+]Loading...["Arc of Infinity (TV story)"], Frontios [+]Loading...["Frontios (TV story)"]) He was unafraid to point out how others were complicating matters with their pride (TV: Black Orchid [+]Loading...["Black Orchid (TV story)"], Earthshock [+]Loading...["Earthshock (TV story)"]) or apparent idiocy, (TV: Four to Doomsday [+]Loading...["Four to Doomsday (TV story)"], Mawdryn Undead [+]Loading...["Mawdryn Undead (TV story)"], Time Crash [+]Loading...["Time Crash (TV story)"]) and would become particularly irked when he was being put to death as a scapegoat for others to avoid dealing with their problems when there were alternative solutions. (TV: Arc of Infinity [+]Loading...["Arc of Infinity (TV story)"], Frontios [+]Loading...["Frontios (TV story)"], The Caves of Androzani [+]Loading...["The Caves of Androzani (TV story)"])

He was notably for his use of sarcasm, especially when simultaneously dealing with Tegan and Adric, (TV: The Visitation [+]Loading...["The Visitation (TV story)"]) and was proficient with puns. (TV: Four to Doomsday [+]Loading...["Four to Doomsday (TV story)"], Enlightenment [+]Loading...["Enlightenment (TV story)"], The Caves of Androzani [+]Loading...["The Caves of Androzani (TV story)"]) He also felt suited for settling down and starting a family. (AUDIO: Loups-Garoux [+]Loading...["Loups-Garoux (audio story)"], No Place Like Home [+]Loading...["No Place Like Home (audio story)"], Winter [+]Loading...["Winter (audio story)"])

Being highly curious and eager to learn and explore, the Fifth Doctor would often let his curiosity dictate his decision making, leaving him to being easily distracted and getting caught up in his own thoughts and musings, to the point where he got himself and others into trouble simply by not paying enough attention to his surroundings, even when he knew that such a mind-set was one of his flaws. (TV: Black Orchid [+]Loading...["Black Orchid (TV story)"], The Caves of Androzani [+]Loading...["The Caves of Androzani (TV story)"])

The Doctor plays cricket. (COMIC: Time & Time Again [+]Loading...["Time & Time Again (comic story)"])

After finding a cricket bat and discovering a room in his TARDIS dedicated to the sport shortly after his regeneration, the Fifth Doctor became a vivid fan of cricket, (TV: Castrovalva [+]Loading...["Castrovalva (TV story)"]) often spending long periods of time playing the game, (TV: Black Orchid [+]Loading...["Black Orchid (TV story)"]; PROSE: Happy Endings [+]Loading...["Happy Endings (novel)"], Goth Opera [+]Loading...["Goth Opera (novel)"]; AUDIO: Autumn [+]Loading...["Autumn (audio story)"]) attending several famous matches, (AUDIO: The Roof of the World [+]Loading...["The Roof of the World (audio story)"], Nekromanteia [+]Loading...["Nekromanteia (audio story)"], The Emerald Tiger [+]Loading...["The Emerald Tiger (audio story)"]; PROSE: Graham Dilley Saves the World [+]Loading...["Graham Dilley Saves the World (short story)"]) and teaching his companions the rules of the game. (AUDIO: Phantasmagoria [+]Loading...["Phantasmagoria (audio story)"])

He also liked "long walks", (TV: The Visitation [+]Loading...["The Visitation (TV story)"]) and having live audience participation in large shows. (AUDIO: Nekromanteia [+]Loading...["Nekromanteia (audio story)"]) He felt a genuine sense of awe while in Cairo, (PROSE: Never Seen Cairo [+]Loading...["Never Seen Cairo (short story)"]) and though of Vortis as somewhere he could relax. (AUDIO: Return to the Web Planet [+]Loading...["Return to the Web Planet (audio story)"])

He did not like earrings, (TV: Four to Doomsday [+]Loading...["Four to Doomsday (TV story)"]) disliked being referred to as "sweet", (AUDIO: The Entropy Composition [+]Loading...["The Entropy Composition (audio story)"]) had a disdain for cats, (AUDIO: No Place Like Home [+]Loading...["No Place Like Home (audio story)"]) felt uncomfortable around spiders, (PROSE: Light at the End of the Tunnel [+]Loading...["Light at the End of the Tunnel (short story)"]) and, with the exception of Susan, rarely thought about his family. (AUDIO: No Place Like Home [+]Loading...["No Place Like Home (audio story)"]) He also disliked slavery. (PROSE: Tip of the Tongue [+]Loading...["Tip of the Tongue (short story)"])

While he didn't "[feel] at home" on Gallifrey, (AUDIO: No Place Like Home [+]Loading...["No Place Like Home (audio story)"]) he did consider returning to his home planet as a retirement plan. (COMIC: The Tides of Time [+]Loading...["The Tides of Time (comic story)"])

His drink of choice was lemonade with ice, (TV: Black Orchid [+]Loading...["Black Orchid (TV story)"]) and he also liked tea, (TV: The Awakening [+]Loading...["The Awakening (TV story)"]) believing it to be one of the things about the universe he loved. (AUDIO: Omega [+]Loading...["Omega (audio story)"]) He took his tea with either two sugars (AUDIO: The Eternal Summer [+]Loading...["The Eternal Summer (audio story)"]) or with milk and no sugar. (AUDIO: The Elite [+]Loading...["The Elite (audio story)"]) He considered fresh chilled orange juice to be "one of the finest things about Earth". (PROSE: Fascination [+]Loading...["Fascination (short story)"])

He also enjoyed jam, (AUDIO: Plague of the Daleks [+]Loading...["Plague of the Daleks (audio story)"]) kippers, and porridge. (PROSE: Empire of Death [+]Loading...["Empire of Death (novel)"])

The Doctor thought that it was best to "learn by [his] mistakes", (TV: The Awakening [+]Loading...["The Awakening (TV story)"]) and looked for "possibilities" that he "[could] never imagine", as he wanted to know how they worked and help them to work better. (AUDIO: Loups-Garoux [+]Loading...["Loups-Garoux (audio story)"]) While he preferred to take risks alone, he conceded that "a risk shared [was] a risk doubled". (TV: Frontios [+]Loading...["Frontios (TV story)"])

The Doctor watches the Master burn. (TV: Planet of Fire [+]Loading...["Planet of Fire (TV story)"])

Unwilling to accept that violence was "a universal way of life", (TV: Resurrection of the Daleks [+]Loading...["Resurrection of the Daleks (TV story)"]) the Fifth Doctor was disdainful towards needless deaths, (COMIC: In Their Nature [+]Loading...["In Their Nature (comic story)"]) and tried his best to avoid using violence when "there [could] [be] another way", (TV: Warriors of the Deep [+]Loading...["Warriors of the Deep (TV story)"], The Awakening [+]Loading...["The Awakening (TV story)"]) not even tolerating violence when it was being used to rescue him. (TV: Arc of Infinity [+]Loading...["Arc of Infinity (TV story)"]) He was particularly furious when Peter Sandoz shot Miss Tremayne when she was threatening him with a knife, believing he could have talked her down. (AUDIO: Winter for the Adept [+]Loading...["Winter for the Adept (audio story)"]) When he resorted to dubious actions, the Doctor had to reassure himself that his actions were done without choice, believing he could convince himself with enough repetition. (COMIC: Lunar Lagoon [+]Loading...["Lunar Lagoon (comic story)"])

However, he did possess a dark side, gunning down foes when he deemed it necessary, (TV: Earthshock [+]Loading...["Earthshock (TV story)"], Arc of Infinity [+]Loading...["Arc of Infinity (TV story)"], Warriors of the Deep [+]Loading...["Warriors of the Deep (TV story)"], Resurrection of the Daleks [+]Loading...["Resurrection of the Daleks (TV story)"]) and not moving to save the Master from a fiery death, though was deeply upset by his part in it. (TV: Planet of Fire [+]Loading...["Planet of Fire (TV story)"]) He was also willing to physically slap someone to calm them down, (COMIC: Stars Fell on Stockbridge [+]Loading...["Stars Fell on Stockbridge (comic story)"]) and accepted a pistol from King Louis, but only so he would not contradict the king. (AUDIO: The Church and the Crown [+]Loading...["The Church and the Crown (audio story)"])

While he failed to execute Davros in cold blood, (TV: Resurrection of the Daleks [+]Loading...["Resurrection of the Daleks (TV story)"]) he did destroy Kamelion at the android's request. (TV: Planet of Fire [+]Loading...["Planet of Fire (TV story)"]) He also once shot the Master non-fatally in the chest to subdue him. (PROSE: A Town Called Eternity [+]Loading...["A Town Called Eternity (short story)"])

While his feelings were hurt when Adric called him "decidedly immature" when in comparison to his fourth incarnation, (TV: Earthshock [+]Loading...["Earthshock (TV story)"]) the Fifth Doctor showed off an immature and childish side when he went to great lengths to avoid doing something he personally did not want to do, coming up with every excuse he could to prevent himself from being forced into action. (TV: Earthshock [+]Loading...["Earthshock (TV story)"], The Five Doctors [+]Loading...["The Five Doctors (TV story)"]) When Tegan voiced her unease with traveling with Kamelion, the Doctor pranked her by pretending to take her reluctance as a sign she didn't want to travel with him anymore, and even acted like he was going to return her home when he had instead set course for the Eye of Orion, just to tease her, (TV: The King's Demons [+]Loading...["The King's Demons (TV story)"]) and later playfully poked fun at her older appearance when they reunited in the remembered TARDIS. (TV: Earthshock [+]Loading...["Earthshock (TotT TV story)"])

The Doctor could fail to notice when his companions did not want to follow his instructions, (TV: Four to Doomsday [+]Loading...["Four to Doomsday (TV story)"]) when they were trying to show off a new outfit to him, (TV: Snakedance [+]Loading...["Snakedance (TV story)"], Enlightenment [+]Loading...["Enlightenment (TV story)"]) or were not enjoying themselves in their adventures as much as he was, (TV: Resurrection of the Daleks [+]Loading...["Resurrection of the Daleks (TV story)"]) and he could be dismisses of people when his mind was focused elsewhere. (COMIC: Stars Fell on Stockbridge [+]Loading...["Stars Fell on Stockbridge (comic story)"])

He also tried to find a positive approach to life, even if it was a delusional one, (AUDIO: Iterations of I [+]Loading...["Iterations of I (audio story)"]) such as fixating on the idea that Mondas was 1950s Trafalgar Square, wilfully ignoring the mine carts and giant underground cavern overhead. (AUDIO: Spare Parts [+]Loading...["Spare Parts (audio story)"]) When he and Nyssa were arrested for using future currency during the Jacobin era, the Doctor tried to console Nyssa by pointing out that they still used Earth-based coins. (AUDIO: Summer [+]Loading...["Summer (audio story)"])

The Fifth Doctor identified himself as being open-minded, likening himself to Alice as he "[tried] to believe three impossible things before breakfast". As such, he was willing to give his enemies the benefit of the doubt, such as when he met the Master in the Death Zone on Gallifrey, and was willing to hear him out when the Master said he had come to aid the Doctor. When the High Council confirmed the Master's story, the Doctor admitted that he had done the Master an injustice by doubting him. (TV: The Five Doctors [+]Loading...["The Five Doctors (TV story)"])

The Fifth Doctor though his third incarnation was the "dandiest dandelion", while the Third Doctor criticised his fifth incarnation for "wearing [a] salad". (WC: Doctors Assemble! [+]Loading...["Doctors Assemble! (webcast)"])

Immediately after his regeneration, the Sixth Doctor told Peri Brown that his predecessor had "a sort of feckless charm [that] simply wasn't [him]", (TV: The Twin Dilemma [+]Loading...["The Twin Dilemma (TV story)"]) but later admitted to Evelyn Smythe that "being him was like a holiday", adding that it was "a very wonderful holiday". (AUDIO: The 100 Days of the Doctor [+]Loading...["The 100 Days of the Doctor (audio story)"])

The Seventh Doctor described the Fifth Doctor as "bland" and "not even one of the good ones", while the Fifth Doctor was repulsed by his seventh incarnation's manipulative nature. (PROSE: Cold Fusion [+]Loading...["Cold Fusion (novel)"]) However, despite the animosity between the two, in the Seventh Doctor's subconscious, the Fifth Doctor personified his conscience due to his strong sense of compassion. (PROSE: Timewyrm: Revelation [+]Loading...["Timewyrm: Revelation (novel)"]) The Eighth Doctor was fonder of his fifth incarnation than his two immediate predecessors, describing him as "terribly polite." (AUDIO: The Four Doctors [+]Loading...["The Four Doctors (audio story)"])

The Doctor and his tenth incarnation. (TV: Time Crash [+]Loading...["Time Crash (TV story)"])

The Tenth Doctor expressed a fondness for his fifth incarnation, seeing him as a turning point and stating that it was after his fourth regeneration when he began to enjoy his time in younger bodies. He also confessed that certain aspects of his wardrobe and personality were influenced by the Fifth Doctor. (TV: Time Crash [+]Loading...["Time Crash (TV story)"])

When the Eleventh Doctor contacted the Fifth Doctor through an Ovid sphere in England in the 1920s, he commented that his fifth incarnation was "grumpy" and "frowny" in part because he worried about being taken seriously due to his youthful appearance. (AUDIO: Smoke and Mirrors [+]Loading...["Smoke and Mirrors (audio story)"])

The Doctor was highly protective of his TARDIS, becoming particularly irritated when he thought Nyssa had been tampering with it, (TV: Time-Flight [+]Loading...["Time-Flight (TV story)"]) and frustrated when he thought the Tenth Doctor had changed his console control room design. (TV: Time Crash [+]Loading...["Time Crash (TV story)"])

Although they often argued with each other, the Doctor told Lady Adela Forster that Tegan Jovanka was "very dear" to him, (AUDIO: The Emerald Tiger [+]Loading...["The Emerald Tiger (audio story)"]) and also told Tegan that he "[couldn't] bear the thought of not having [her] around", (PROSE: Qualia [+]Loading...["Qualia (short story)"]) though he would often hide from her in the TARDIS' Cloister Room. (AUDIO: No Place Like Home [+]Loading...["No Place Like Home (audio story)"]) Tegan claimed that the Doctor often gave her "half pained [and] half patronising" looks. (AUDIO: Aquitaine [+]Loading...["Aquitaine (audio story)"])

The Doctor thought that Adric was "daft, and silly, and sulky", but also knew he was "just a kid". (TV: Earthshock [+]Loading...["Earthshock (TotT TV story)"])

The Fifth Doctor somewhat looked down on humanity for being "parochial", and "fly[ing] off the handle" when they did not get their wishes, (TV: The Visitation [+]Loading...["The Visitation (TV story)"]) and could become patronising when trying to correct someone who refused to listen to him. (TV: Snakedance [+]Loading...["Snakedance (TV story)"]) While he "always had a soft spot for Earth", (COMIC: 4-Dimensional Vistas [+]Loading...["4-Dimensional Vistas (comic story)"]) he openly questioned his fondness for the "pathetic humans" of the "miserable planet" Earth when they elected to kill "noble races" in the name of retribution, (TV: Warriors of the Deep [+]Loading...["Warriors of the Deep (TV story)"]) though conceded that England was "one of the last few civilised places left in the galaxy". (COMIC: The Stockbridge Horror [+]Loading...["The Stockbridge Horror (comic story)"])

The Fifth Doctor believed the Master to be "the most evil force in the universe". (TV: Castrovalva [+]Loading...["Castrovalva (TV story)"])

He viewed his fourth incarnation's hesitation at averting the creation of the Daleks to have been "a mistake". However, while he did not hesitate to destroy Daleks, he was unable to bring himself to kill Davros with a gun to his face, ultimately giving Davros time to escape. (TV: Resurrection of the Daleks [+]Loading...["Resurrection of the Daleks (TV story)"])

Two days after he recovered from his post-regeneration trauma, Tegan described the Fifth Doctor as "an incompetent lunatic who talks gibberish", and Adric saw him as a "feckless, frivolous dilettante" who was an inferior replacement to the Fourth Doctor. (AUDIO: Psychodrome [+]Loading...["Psychodrome (audio story)"]) At a later date, Tegan described him as "the most annoying man that [she had] ever met".

(GAME: The Eternity Clock [+]Loading...["The Eternity Clock (video game)"]) When the Eighth Doctor had a tarot card reading, the Fifth Doctor was identified as "the Star".

After he and Peri became infected with spectrox toxaemia, the Doctor became determined to save Peri from dying of the poison, (TV: The Caves of Androzani [+]Loading...["The Caves of Androzani (TV story)"]) even holding back his impending regeneration. (AUDIO: Winter [+]Loading...["Winter (audio story)"]) After he accidentally dropped half of the bat's milk remedy, the Doctor selflessly gave Peri all that remained of the antidote, saving her life at the cost of his own. (TV: The Caves of Androzani [+]Loading...["The Caves of Androzani (TV story)"]) Reaching out for aid in gathering his strength, (AUDIO: Winter [+]Loading...["Winter (audio story)"]) the Doctor felt comforted as he saw visuals of his past companions appearing before him. Though he was content to die, when he saw the face of the Master taunting him, the Doctor choose to survive with a regeneration so as to not let the Master have "the last laugh". (PROSE: The Caves of Androzani [+]Loading...["The Caves of Androzani (novelisation)"])

Habits and quirks[[edit]]

The Doctor wearing his "brainy specs". (TV: Frontios [+]Loading...["Frontios (TV story)"])

When needing to examine something, the Fifth Doctor would sometimes sport a pair of glasses. (TV: Castrovalva [+]Loading...["Castrovalva (TV story)"], Kinda [+]Loading...["Kinda (TV story)"], Frontios [+]Loading...["Frontios (TV story)"], Planet of Fire [+]Loading...["Planet of Fire (TV story)"], Time Crash [+]Loading...["Time Crash (TV story)"]) While he claimed to need them due to a weakness in his right eye, (TV: Four to Doomsday [+]Loading...["Four to Doomsday (TV story)"]) the Tenth Doctor confessed that these "brainy specs" only served to make his fifth incarnation look "a bit clever". (TV: Time Crash [+]Loading...["Time Crash (TV story)"])

When not instructing people to follow him with an utterance of "come on", (TV: Four to Doomsday [+]Loading...["Four to Doomsday (TV story)"], The King's Demons [+]Loading...["The King's Demons (TV story)"], The Five Doctors [+]Loading...["The Five Doctors (TV story)"], Earthshock [+]Loading...["Earthshock (TotT TV story)"], etc.) the Fifth Doctor would instead instruct someone to follow his lead by saying, "this way".

(TV: Time Crash [+]Loading...["Time Crash (TV story)"])

As rather stagnant incarnation, the Fifth Doctor would usually alternate between having his hands crossed behind his back or in his trouser pockets while flicking the long tails on his coat back, with it being extremely rare for him to go an entire adventure without doing either. (TV: Terminus [+]Loading...["Terminus (TV story)"], Dimensions in Time [+]Loading...["Dimensions in Time (TV story)"], Earthshock [+]Loading...["Earthshock (TotT TV story)"]) He was also known to occasionally place his hands in his coat pockets instead.

(TV: Arc of Infinity [+]Loading...["Arc of Infinity (TV story)"])

He crossed his arms when sulking (TV: Kinda [+]Loading...["Kinda (TV story)"], The Visitation [+]Loading...["The Visitation (TV story)"], Earthshock [+]Loading...["Earthshock (TV story)"]) or on the defensive, (TV: Terminus [+]Loading...["Terminus (TV story)"], The Awakening [+]Loading...["The Awakening (TV story)"]) and was prone to dramatic turns, which usually caused his hair to sway wildly.

The Fifth Doctor often delegated some decisions to the simple chance of a coin flip. (TV: Kinda [+]Loading...["Kinda (TV story)"], Time-Flight [+]Loading...["Time-Flight (TV story)"], Enlightenment [+]Loading...["Enlightenment (TV story)"], The Awakening [+]Loading...["The Awakening (TV story)"])


While he preferred to use trickery to solve a problem, (TV: Frontios [+]Loading...["Frontios (TV story)"]) the Fifth Doctor was still very capable of defending himself unarmed when pushed to physical confrontations.

Behind the scenes[[edit]]


  • After the popularity of Tom Baker's Fourth Doctor, it was decided that the fifth incarnation would be played by an actor who was already firmly established in the British public's mind.
  • Richard Griffiths was considered for the role, as was Iain Cuthbertson.[1]
  • Peter Davison was eventually chosen to be the Fifth Doctor, due in no small part to his popular and critically acclaimed role as Tristan Farnon in All Creatures Great and Small, a BBC series based on the books of James Herriot.

Peter Davison's age[[edit]]

Costume details[[edit]]

  • Davison agreed to wear a stick of celery on his lapel on the understanding that John Nathan-Turner would eventually have a writer explain the bizarre fashion statement. Though Davison thought the explanation would come earlier, the mystery was at last revealed in his final story. (DCOM: The Caves of Androzani) Ironically, Davison hated celery, finding it deeply unpleasant when he was required to eat it during the recording of Castrovalva. (DCOM: Castrovalva)
  • Because no make-up artist seemed to particularly care about the length of Davison's hair throughout season 19, the Fifth Doctor's hair length varied between stories, as Davison had his hair cut short at the beginning of each season to accommodate other projects like All Creatures Great and Small that required his hair to be short, and the production team allowed him to grow it throughout each of his production blocks, despite the fact his serials were being recorded out of broadcast order. Davison would joke on DVD commentaries that "real fans" can tell the production order of episodes by the length of his hair.

Other matters[[edit]]

  • In several DVD commentaries, Peter Davison claims he abandoned his half-moon glasses because Janet Fielding teased him when he used them. Fielding seemed to agree with this assessment on the commentary for Earthshock.
