The time travel and the non-euclidean spaces, and the screwdriver, and the companions are all fun and necessary window dressings. But they are not what the Doctor is about.

Intellect and Romance triumph over brute force and cynicism.

And then the Doctor decides to drown a race of spider people because he was mildly peeved.

Intellect and Romance triumph again!

(But I'm just busting your balls.)


He, in my homebrew, is the Air. He is flighty, a creature of whimsy. His whole shtick is making people better. He has few followers, but those who do follow him follow absolutely. He doesn't think of them as followers, rather friends and companions. He would readily sacrifice himself for any of them. He also has no known name. He is the Air God, the Lonely One.


[tangent]What's wrong with "Last of the Time Lords"? It's certainly not worse than the last 4 episodes, or any dealing with the Slitheen.[/tangent]


EEEWWWEWW Slitheen!!! I can't stand Raxacoricofallapatorians at all. bleh

Actually the better example would be the ending of "Waters of Mars". Both of them show how important the Doctor's Companion really is in providing that reality check he often so desperately needs.

Good? Mostly, but he was prone to vengeance. So he has a dark side.

Is there a domain for Companions?

Yes, in the Old series, The doctor has armed himself with guns, knives, and other weapons. IN fact, he's even killed people.

OH, and the 9th Doctor armed himself against a Dalek in the 3rd episode.

And "The Lonely God" Was from the face of Boe. I think it was in "Gridlock" If not, Google seems to indicate that it was one of his prophecies.

Actually, He was livid. Remember, they were going to destroy the earth to hatch their brood. that would piss ANYONE off.


Currently watching classic doctor who to get ideas. Prime Instant Video only has select episodes for free, though.

But generally he has sympathy for creatures that are trying to save their family and such and tries diplomacy instead of skipping straight to the floods.


He gave her a chance to let him find them a home where they didn't have to kill all humans. She was set on destruction, so the doctor chose to save humanity.
