Character: The Tenth Doctor
Fandom: Doctor Who
Spoilers: Through… "Planet of the Dead"
I'm the Doctor. I'm a Time Lord. I'm from the planet Gallifrey in the constellation of Kasterborous. I'm 903 years old, and I'm the man who's gonna save your lives and all six billion people on the planet below. You got a problem with that?
In that case: Allons-y!
(DW X-mas Special: Voyage of the Damned)
When we were first introduced to the Tenth Doctor, at the end of Series 1’s “Parting of the Ways,” I think that we, like his faithful companion, Rose Tyler, were just a wee bit shell shocked. For those of us who were madly in love with New Who's first doctor (the Ninth, as played by Christopher Eccleston) watching the regeneration was not just heartbreaking – it was terrifying.
After all, we wondered, who could possibly be as off-the-map fantastic as the Ninth Doctor who'd won so many of our hearts in the first series of New Who?
