The Doctor was a Time Lord from the planet Gallifrey who stole a TARDIS (a machine that can travel through time and space) to explore the universe. However, The Doctor often ran into trouble, and despite his people's non-interference policy, The Doctor often acted against evil and tried to protect those who needed assistance. In many instances, before he dies, he goes through regeneration, a Time Lord ability that changes his personality and his genetic makeup (but with most memories retained) and allows him to survive near-death experiences. To date, there have been thirteen different unique incarnations of The Doctor. However, for one incarnation during an event known as the Time War, he forwent going by the name of The Doctor.
The Twelfth Doctor emerged from his predecessor's explosive regeneration on Trenzalore, being the product of "regeneration number thirteen." He was the first incarnation of The Doctor's second regeneration cycle, which had been bestowed upon him by the Time Lords. Clara Oswald, continuing her travels with him after he regenerated, served as his primary companion, and at times acted as his moral compass. Assured of the survival of Gallifrey, he was no longer chained down by his guilt. A darker character with a withdrawn and spiky attitude, he was less amiable and habitually questioned his own goodness. Although this incarnation was no stranger to kindness and humor, he often dispensed with niceties in a tense situation, becoming cold and calculative in critical moments that required sound judgment and the occasional application of sharp practice. However, because of his detachment from emotions, he could come off as unpleasant, fearsome, and ruthless. These qualities often terrified those who were around him, even his companions. He became harder to trust, and acknowledged his shift toward negative personality traits, feeling incensed and fearful at what he was changing into. Despite this, however, he developed a deep bond with Clara, to the extent of becoming very protective of her and, eventually, the Doctor realized his feelings for Clara developed during his eleventh incarnation had not changed.
The First Doctor was, by his own statement, the "original" incarnation of the Doctor. Holding himself in high regard, he was prone to criticizing those whom he felt were naive or primitive compared to his intellect. However, he possessed compassion, warmth, and wit that made up for his egocentric nature, serving to act as a mentor and guardian figure in his elderly years. Originally a very difficult and curmudgeonly person, the First Doctor matured from an apparent selfishness and became more inviting. His happier, kinder characteristics fostered when he began to acquire an entourage of companions to accompany him throughout the wonders of the fourth dimension and learned to be a caregiver with a sense of justice in a universe afflicted by evils. This incarnation "died" and regenerated when he gave in to old age and fatigue following his first encounter with the Cybermen,
Though outwardly warm, bumbling, and clownish -- and physically more vigorous than his predecessor -- the Second Doctor also had a darker, more cunning and manipulative aspect to his personality — one which he usually kept hidden in order to carry out his plans. This incarnation was forced to regenerate when he was finally apprehended by the Time Lords and placed on trial for his years of interference.
As part of the sentence that led to his second regeneration, the Third Doctor was exiled by the Time Lords to Earth for a significant period of his life. The technological limits of the time period, and the constraints of his exile, often made him frustrated and bitter. However, he retained his endearing compassion toward his human companions. This Doctor worked for UNIT (the United Nations - later Unified - Intelligence Taskforce) as their unpaid scientific adviser, and remained in their service after his exile was ended (though he continued to help UNIT frequently and still considered the Earth his home afterwards). Unlike his earlier incarnations, he was quite willing to engage others physically, and cut a more dashing figure.
His foremost enemy was a fellow Time Lord, The Master. Although appalled by the disregard for life inherent in the Master's schemes, The Doctor treated their relationship as somewhat of a friendly rivalry, even enjoying their battle of wits. The Master reflected an equally casual attitude back at him. He also held out hope that he could rehabilitate The Master, whom he had once considered a friend. Though The Master sometimes teamed up with The Doctor to deal with foes who threatened them, he always bent to dark and malicious desires, which kept their mutual antagonism alive. The Third Doctor succumbed to radiation poisoning after visiting the giant spiders of Metabelis III.
Filled with wanderlust and a renewed curiosity towards exploring time and space, the Fourth Doctor left all ties of his previous incarnation's exile behind on Earth, setting off to travel the Cosmos. He initially traveled with Sarah Jane Smith and Harry Sullivan, but Harry chose to remain on Earth when the opportunity arose. The Doctor and Sarah continued on their adventures until The Doctor was summoned to Gallifrey, necessitating that he leave Sarah Jane behind as humans were not allowed on Gallifrey. After that trip he met a girl called Leela an ancestor of the human race they traveled for a while till she decided to stay on Gallifrey with K-9. One of the Doctor's longer-lived incarnations, the Fourth Doctor subsequently travelled with a number of other individuals, including a female Time Lord named Romana who underwent her own regeneration during her time with the Doctor. During an encounter with a resurrected Master, the Doctor was thrown from the top of a large radio telescope in England; the injuries triggered his next regeneration.
With his young looks, the Fifth Doctor expressed an interest in things associated with Victorian and Edwardian England: cricket, tea, fair play, good manners, and a keen interest in science and exploration. He was also a sensitive and profusely humane incarnation who did not make himself an imposition, preferring to be honest, reserved, and honorable. However, the Fifth 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. When both he and his current companion, Peri Brown, were poisoned during a visit to Androzani Minor, the Doctor sacrificed his incarnation in order to give an antidote to Peri.
Arrogant, dramatic, self-absorbed, driven and stubborn, the Sixth Doctor instantly believed himself superior to almost anyone he encountered. He would often browbeat others into submission with his savage wit and his grammarian's interest in language. Even so, his mercurial and flippant tendencies did not define the true heart of his persona. Beneath his thunderous, occasionally violent and turbulent exterior, he was quite the opposite: a passionate, warm, virtuous and empathic individual. The circumstances of this Doctor's regeneration are unclear, but appear to have been connected to an incident where his TARDIS was pulled from the time vortex by an evil Time Lord known as the Rani. (According to the "New Adventures" book series, he suffered complications from a concussion, when hitting his head on the console, during the Rani's hijacking.)
Originally a man with the demeanor of an eccentric, light-hearted buffoon, the Seventh Doctor darkened into a mysterious, cunning manipulator to properly combat the return of Fenric. Though he delighted in humorous reverie, it was only the surface layer of his true nature. Beneath, he was a Machiavellian genius of frightful caliber who tactfully used his mind to control nearly all situations into reaching his personal favored outcome. Despite this, he could also show profound warmth and affection to his companions, and built a strong bond with many of them. This Doctor died on an operating table in San Francisco during exploratory heart surgery after his twin hearts were mistaken for a defect.
The Eighth Doctor led a life of unusual temporal complexity. It so frequently involved time paradoxes and parallel universes that it was impossible to know with certainty how the major epochs of his existence fitted together. At his core an optimist and a romantic, this Doctor tried to remain a cheerful and pacifistic adventurer in spite of a universe that grew ever increasingly hostile around him, eventually culminating in the eruption of the Last Great Time War between the Time Lords and the Dalek Empire. Despite his efforts to stay out of the war and help out its victims out where he could, the Doctor eventually succumbed to despair as the war started to threaten all of existence, and when presented with an option to choose the traits of his next incarnation after suffering mortal injuries in a spaceship crash, he chose to become a warrior in the hopes of ending the war once and for all.
Originally young and robust, the War Doctor set upon the warrior path for which he had been intended, and disavowed the name of "the Doctor". Though the Time Lords and Daleks continued to refer to him by that name, he was also referred to as "the Renegade" by Lady Priyan and "the Warrior" by Clara Oswald. After becoming old and tired of battle and faced with the end of reality, The Doctor considered activating the Moment, to end the Time War by committing genocide against both the Daleks and his own people. However, the Moment's sentient interface led him down a different path by letting him view his future first-hand. By teaming up with his later selves, his mind was opened to a heroic way to end the Time War in lieu of the deadly alternative he was going to enact. His conscience clear, the Doctor succumbed to his advanced years and regenerated. He was technically the ninth incarnation.
The Ninth Doctor was the direct survivor of the Last Great Time War, but left the conflict with the excruciating knowledge of his hand in its grisly conclusion (due to the complexities of time travel, he was unable to retain the memories of what really happened, so as his life began he believed he had destroyed his own people). Now cut off from the Time Lord race, The Doctor found himself alone and bereaved. Emotionally haunted by the war, he entered a darker period of his life spattered by resentment, where he tended to brood and act crossly to those who rubbed him the wrong way. Despite this, he remained jovial and quite friendly towards anyone he took a liking to, slowly reasserting himself as The Doctor while letting go of his lingering wartime persona. He became particularly close to Rose Tyler, a young shop girl from London who accompanied him for nearly all of his relatively brief existence; it was to save her life that the Doctor ingested radiation from the time vortex, causing cellular death that triggered his next regeneration.
Unlike his immediate predecessor, who was plagued by melancholy due to his actions during the Last Great Time War, the Tenth Doctor possessed an outgoing, lively and genial demeanor that hid his "survivor's guilt". For most of his incarnation, The Doctor was able to successfully project a convivial and even frivolous front. However, when he had to engage in conflict, the Tenth Doctor's energies would shift toward heroism to reveal a fiercely protective man who resolutely guarded what he held dear, and who could be viciously unforgiving to the forces that dared menace them. This Doctor was a noticeably more romantic character than previous incarnations, not only engaging in a flirtatious relationship with Rose (who fell in love with the Doctor), but also carrying on romances with historic figures such as Madame de Pompadour and Queen Elizabeth I, the latter of whom he married. This is the only incarnation to regenerate twice: on the first occasion, he regenerated after being shot by a Dalek but due to a unique circumstance was able to prevent an appearance or personality change. Later, another encounter with deadly radiation, this time accepted in order to save the life of elderly Wilfred Mott, finally led to his next full regeneration.
The Eleventh Doctor was a gauche, capricious, emotionally unpredictable and adventurous incarnation of the renegade Time Lord known as The Doctor, as well as the final incarnation of his original regeneration cycle. However, by this point in his life, his reputation had grown immense, attracting a new strain of conflicts. Wishing to withdraw from the dangers it created, he became a secretive and guileful individual for the sake of himself and those he held close. He had an obsession of calling different clothing items and foods cool. He engaged in a centuries-long struggle to the death against his enemies, including an assassination plot and a last stand against the Silence. This Doctor enjoyed very strong family ties during his life, marrying River Song, the daughter of his companions Amy Pond and Rory Williams, and also bonded deeply with Clara Oswald to the point where his next incarnation confessed that he thought of himself as her boyfriend. Time Lords are allotted twelve regenerations and thirteen lives; due to the War Doctor and the fact the Tenth Doctor regenerated twice, this Doctor lived much of his life assuming himself to be the thirteenth and final incarnation of the Doctor. During his last stand against the Daleks on the planet Trenzalore, however, Clara communicated with the Time Lords and was able to convince them to renew his regeneration cycle.
He befriends Batman, Gandalf, and Wyldstyle in the A Dalektable Adventure level. He teams up with them to help defeat Lord Vortech. He fixes X-PO and then distracts Lord Vortech and traps him in a rift loop. During this time he appears exclusively as his 12th Doctor self.
- Doctor Regenerate (Changes his own appearance after getting killed off in game)
- Sonar Smash
- TARDIS Access
- The physical minifigure itself is based on the Twelfth Doctor, portrayed by Peter Capaldi, who returns to voice him in the game.
- When The Doctor dies, he regenerates into the next Doctor in sequence (only after the player has completed the Dalek Extermination of Earth level). The exception is the Twelfth Doctor, who regenerates back into the First Doctor when he dies, beginning the cycle again.
- Besides changing his appearance, whenever the Doctor changes into a new incarnation, the interior of the TARDIS also changes to match the design used during that incarnation's era. Each interior has its own unique array of studs, with the Eighth, Eleventh and Twelfth Doctor's having an extensive amount available, making the TARDIS a valuable "stud farming" location in early stages of game levels if the player wants to amass studs towards Hire a Hero and Rule Breaker early.
- All thirteen of The Doctor's incarnations are playable, but only the Twelfth Doctor has new dialogue for the game, as done by Peter Capaldi; the Doctor's dialogue includes quotes taken from the 2014 season of the series, though one line, "The Doctor will see you now", is coincidentally a key line from a 2015 episode that had not aired when the Doctor was released for the game. The other Doctors' dialogue will be used from the BBC's audio archives. Which means the voices of late actors such as, William Hartnell (First), Patrick Troughton (Second), and Jon Pertwee (Third) will be heard from their respective Doctors along with the other Doctors, with the exception of the Twelfth Doctor.
- Each incarnation is equipped with their own sonic screwdriver, including ones who didn't use it, with differing models. The First Doctor shares the same model with the Second Doctor who was the first to use it. The Sixth and Seventh Doctors have the same model as the three incarnations before them despite the screwdriver being destroyed during the Fifth Doctor's era. The Eighth Doctor also uses the same model, despite getting different ones in his expanded stories. The Ninth and Tenth Doctors share he same model, as do the Eleventh and Twelfth Doctors with each other, having past them down through regeneration. The War Doctor also possesses his own screwdriver seen in Day of the Doctor.
- As seen by trailer footage and promotional art, he and the Velociraptor are enemies, or just don't get along well together.
- When removing the figure when playing as any Doctor with the exception of the Twelfth Doctor, that respective Doctor would speak some lines from their ending speeches before regeneration. For the Twelfth Doctor, new lines were written as his regeneration has not yet been shown on the screen.
- He is one of the four Doctors in the game, along with Doc Brown, Peter Venkman, and Abby Yates.
- The Doctor can either be killed off, or use the TARDIS console to change to different incarnations/TARDIS interiors. The latter option, of course, does not cost the player any studs.
- Coincidentally, the Twelfth Doctor reacts to Level Pack characters, Homer Simpson and Peter Venkman. He also voices a negative opinion of the DeLorean Time Machine when entering the vehicle, suggesting the TARDIS be used instead.
- They two react to him as well.
- The 12th Doctor appears in a few Year 2 cutscenes:
- The effect for his Regenerate power is the used consistently in the revived series (a burst of light emitting from the person's hands and face), including the classic era Doctors even though the effect changed with each incarnation.
