The Who Question
In the era from the fourth to the seventh Doctor's, this question mark symbol was present somewhere in the Doctor's costume.
The War Doctor
Actor: John Hurt
The "War Doctor" saw the most direct combat in the Last Great Time War. This incarnation, originally young and robust, disowned the name of the Doctor because he felt unworthy of it. He spent countless years waging war. After becoming old and tired of battle and faced with the end of reality, this Doctor considered activating the Moment, to commit genocide against both the Daleks and his own people.
The Ninth Doctor
Actor: Christopher Eccleston
The Doctor's ninth incarnation was perhaps the most gritty, and informal, masking a lonely, guilt-ridden and melancholic personality with a jovial, witty, forthright and almost manic exterior. Similar to the Fourth Doctor, he would often make jokes in the face of danger, but then become grim and serious when on his own. Like the Sixth Doctor, he also tended to be fatalistic at times, to the point of near-panic when he and Rose were cornered in "The Unquiet Dead" and he realised that he was going to die (this despite the knowledge that he would probably just regenerate). Despite being impatient with humans, whom he often referred to as "stupid apes" -- and Mickey receiving particular scorn and being dubbed "Mickey the Idiot" -- the Ninth Doctor was far more tactile with, and reliant upon, his human companions than previous incarnations. He was notably both sentimental and emotional, especially where his closest friend, Rose, was concerned, to the point of allowing her to view her parents' wedding and later, her father's last moments — this being just one example of his occasional lack of caution.
The TARDIS (Time and Relative Dimension in Space) is a time machine and spacecraft in the British science fiction television programme Doctor Who and its associated spin-offs.
A TARDIS is a product of the advanced technology of the Time Lords, an extraterrestrial civilisation to which the programme's central character, the Doctor, belongs. A properly maintained and piloted TARDIS can transport its occupants to any point in time and any place in the universe. The interior of a TARDIS is much larger than its exterior (It's bigger on the inside), which can blend in with its surroundings using the ship's "chameleon circuit". TARDISes also possess a degree of sentience (which has been expressed in a variety of ways ranging from implied machine personality and free will through to the use of a conversant avatar) and provide their users with additional tools and abilities including a telepathically-based universal translation system.
The Seventh Doctor
Actor: Sylvester McCoy
The Seventh Doctor displayed perhaps the most profound change in attitude of any of the Time Lord's personae, beginning as perhaps the most outwardly amiable and bumbling (to the extent of putting himself in danger but not at the cost of his overall great intelligence and benevolent intentions) and progressing into a driven, dark gamemaster whose plans to defeat his adversaries, both old and new, would play out across space and time. He generally displayed an affable, curious, knowledgeable, easygoing, excitable and charming air. However, as he began to choose his battles and keep a tighter grip on his secrets - from his plans to his very identity - he also presented more serious, contemplative, secretive, wistful and manipulative sides with undercurrents of mischief and authority, constantly giving the impression that there was more to him than met the eye.
The Eighth Doctor
Actor: Paul McGann
The Eighth Doctor, a Byronesque figure who is arguably the most human and romantic of all of his incarnations, encouraged those around him to seize life instead of withdrawing from it. He also seemed to enjoy giving people hints of their own futures, probably to prod them into making the right decisions. It is unclear if the eighth Doctor's knowledge of people's futures comes from historical expertise, psychic power or precognitive ability.
The Fifth Doctor
Actor: Peter Davison
The Fifth Doctor was far more vulnerable, sensitive and reserved than his previous incarnations, and would often react to situations rather than initiate them. Unlike his more authoritative predecessors, he would treat his young companions as parts of a team, and would often willingly participate in situations under the leadership of someone else who had the strong command presence that he apparently lacked. However, the Fifth Doctor's boyish appearance, nervous energy and charm all hid the fact that he was a Time Lord of great age, compassion and experience.
The Sixth Doctor
Actor: Colin Baker
The Sixth Doctor was an unpredictable and somewhat petulant egoist, whose garish, multicoloured attire reflected his volatile personality. He was both portentous and eloquent — even for any Doctor, of whom he saw himself as the finest incarnation yet — and his unpredictability was made even wilder by his mood swings, manic behaviour, bombastic outbursts and glib, unflappable wit. His personality also displayed occasionally fatalistic overtones.
The Fouth Doctor
Actor: Tom Baker
The Fourth Doctor is a natural bohemian who permanently left UNIT in order to return to a life of deep universal wandering. More so than his previous incarnations, he is thrilled by discovery and adventure. Galvanised by higher purpose, he is disarmingly loopy (constantly offering friends and foes jelly babies), brilliant and entirely serious, all at the same time.
The Second Doctor
Actor: Patrick Troughton
He has been nicknamed the "Cosmic Hobo" as the impish Second Doctor appeared to be far more scruffy and child-like than his first incarnation. Mercurial, clever, and always a few steps ahead of his enemies, at times he could be a calculating schemer who would not only manipulate people for the greater good but act like a bumbling fool in order to have others underestimate his true abilities.
The Third Doctor
Actor: Jon Pertwee
The Third Doctor was a suave, authoritative man of action, who not only practiced Venusian Aikido (or Karate), but who enjoyed working on gadgets and riding all manner of vehicles, such as the Whomobile and his pride and joy, the canary-yellow vintage roadster nicknamed "Bessie" which featured such modifications as a remote control, dramatically increased speed capabilities and even inertial dampeners.
The First Doctor
Actor: William Hartnell
From the beginning, the First Doctor was a mysterious figure. He appeared to be a frail old man, despite the eventual revelation that he was actually the youngest of the Doctor's incarnations, and yet was possessed of unexpected reserves of strength and will. He obviously held tremendous knowledge of scientific matters, and yet was unable to pilot his TARDIS time ship reliably; his granddaughter Susan explained this by saying that her grandfather was "a bit forgetful". He was abrasive, patronising, and cantankerous towards his human travelling companions, yet shared a deep emotional bond with his granddaughter Susan. He also harboured a streak of ruthlessness, being willing to lie — and in one case attempt to kill — to achieve his goals.
The Twelfth Doctor
Actor: Peter Capaldi
The Twelfth Doctor cared little about being seen as a hero or even being liked by the people who he was trying to save. Unlike his previous two incarnations who cared about humans and tried to understand them, this incarnation didn't quite understand human beings or really care very much about their approval.
The Thirteenth Doctor
Actor: Jodie Whittaker
The Thirteenth Doctor is the current incarnation of the Doctor. She is portrayed by English actress Jodie Whittaker, the first woman to portray the character in the series. The Thirteenth Doctor is incredibly lively, warm, funny, energetic, inclusive – she's the greatest friend you could wish to have as your guide around the universe.
The Eleventh Doctor
Actor: Matt Smith
The eleventh incarnation was energetic, lively, brash, eccentric and very alien. He was resourceful and quick thinking, able to spin things to his point of view and find positive outlooks in negative situations. (DW: The Eleventh Hour) When things looked bleakest, he liked to have those around him focus on survival.
The Tenth Doctor
Actor: David Tennant
The Tenth Doctor generally displays a light-hearted, talkative, easy-going, witty and cheeky manner, but combines this with a somewhat egocentric sense of unstoppability when facing his enemies. He is perhaps as ruthless and dangerous as his seventh incarnation ever was, although much less inclined to complex schemes and set goals. Like his past selves, he is critical of weapons, going as far as to describe people with guns as "the enemy". His strong personal sense of justice makes him quick to anger when he feels it is violated.
The Logo of The Fifth and Sixth Doctor
Used from 1980–1986, Season 18 - Season 23
Introduced in the final season of Tom Baker's era (Season 18), this revamp of the logo complimented the new title sequence of a 'star field', it was then used throughout Peter Davison's time as the Fifth Doctor. This logo is known colloquially as the "neon sign" or "neon tube" logo. After a brief lag after its introduction the logo began to be used on merchandise such as the Target Books novelisations and Doctor Who Magazine. For the Sixth Doctor, the was similar to the previous logo, but tinted purple along with the rest of the title sequence giving it a more colourful hue. It also takes on a slightly curved appearance along the bottom. This variant was only used for the TV series broadcasts; all merchandise including books relating to Colin Baker's era and DWM continued to use the original version of Logo Five.
The Logo of The Seventh Doctor
Used from 1987–1988, Season 24 - Season 26
For Sylvester McCoy's Seventh Doctor a new title sequence was produced using computer generated imagery, with the new logo being a three dimensionally animated part of the title sequence. The logo was subsequently adopted by DWM and the Target Books line, as well as for merchandise. Following the TV series' end in 1989 this logo would continue to be used for the Virgin New Adventures novels and other merchandise including Doctor Who Magazine until the early 90s when it was replaced on most products (except the New Adventures books) by the more famous Logo Four. Its final on-screen use was for the 1993 mini-episode Dimensions in Time.
The Logo of The Fourth Doctor
Used from 1974–1980, Season 11 - Season 17
Known informally as the "diamond logo" and commonly associated with Tom Baker's time as the Fourth Doctor, this logo was actually introduced during Jon Pertwee's time as the Third Doctor for his final season. Although known as the diamond logo, in fact the diamond-shaped background was often omitted when the logo was used on books and other merchandise. The logo returned to service in the 1980s and 1990s when it was used for video releases of the series (in lieu of logos Five and Six), as well as for the Virgin Missing Adventures book line. It also ultimately replaced Logo Seven on most tie-in publications and merchanding, though not the Virgin New Adventures book series, in the two-three years immediately preceding the introduction of Logo Eight.
The Logo of The Second Doctor
Used from 1966–1969, Season 4 - Season 6
This logo made its first appearance with The Macra Terror. The font was altered to Times New Roman, a completely new "howlaround" pattern was created and Patrick Troughton's face was added for the first time. Initially it used the same music as the previous logo, but starting from Episode 2 of The Faceless Ones, a new arrangment of the theme replaced the old one. It does not appear to have been widely used on merchandising, though it did appear on the record release Doctor Who: Variations on a Theme years later. A variation utilizing thicker, sans serif lettering was used by Target Books on its earliest novelisations before moving into a variant of Logo Four.
The Logo of The Third Doctor
Used from 1970–1974, Season 7 - Season 10
Primarily associated with Jon Pertwee's time as the Third Doctor, this logo was reused in 1996 for Doctor Who: The TV Movie - see Logo Eight, below. While the title sequence was shown in colour in order to achieve the affect similar to previous sequence it was originally designed in black and white. As noted below, this logo is currently (2009) the standard logo for merchandise related to the 1963-89 TV series and the TV movie, most notably the Big Finish Productions audio stories and the BBC Video "classic series" DVD releases.
The Logo of The First Doctor
Used from 1963 to 1966, Season 1 to Season 4
This logo was a simple white text on a black background, it was used to great effect to create the title sequence. It is associated with William Hartnell's tenure as the First Doctor. It remained in use for Patrick Troughton's first few stories up through The Moonbase. It saw some use on merchandising such as Doctor Who Annual and the Frederick Muller novelisations. Much later, in the 1980s, Marvel Comics combined Logo One with elements of Logo Four for its Doctor Who comic book.
The Logo of The Eleventh Doctor
Used beginning in January 2010, Season 5
The BBC unveiled a new logo on 6th October 2009, to be associated with Series 5 in 2010.
The logo returns to the two-level wording of previous Doctor Who logos, and also for the first time incorporates a third and fourth separate element - the initials DW forming the shape of the TARDIS, and also the BBC logo. (It remains to be seen, however, if the BBC part of the logo is retained for international use of the logo, or use in spin-off media such as the IDW Publishing comics.)
The BBC have also released an alternate, horizontal version of the logo with the DW/TARDIS element separating the words "Doctor" and "Who". According to SFX magazine, the BBC officially refers to the Doctor Who lettering as the logo, with the DW/TARDIS graphic being referred to as the "icon".
It is not yet known which version of the branding will actually be used in the opening credits of Series 5. The horizontal version is currently (January 2010) being used on the official BBC Doctor Who website.
The Logo of The Nineth and Tenth Doctor
Used from 2005–2009, Season 1 - Season 4 and 2009 Specials
The return of Doctor Who to television saw a radical redesign of the logo. For the first time the two words of the title are presented horizontally rather than vertically, and as reported by BBC News the new design was initially controversial with some fans.
First Faced: The Eleventh Doctor
The Silence is a fictional religious order or movement in the British science fiction television series Doctor Who. An alien species associated with this order, referred to only as the Silence, is played primarily by Marnix Van Den Broeke.
The existence of the Silence is a secret because anyone who sees them immediately forgets about them after looking away, but retains suggestions made to them by the Silence. This allows them to have a pervasive influence across human history while being difficult to locate or resist.
The Weeping Angels
First Faced: The Tenth Doctor
The Weeping Angels are hunters featured in the Tenth Doctor episode, "Blink", and the Eleventh Doctor episodes, "The Time of Angels" and "Flesh and Stone". Their physiology is quantum-locked, so that they only occupy a single position in space when seen by an observer (see Copenhagen interpretation). When they are not observed they become a "quantum wave form" that occupies many positions in space. Therefore, they cannot move while observed, but can move extremely quickly when unseen. They turn to stone when observed, as a defence mechanism, because according to the Doctor, "you can't kill a stone." While in their locked state they resemble stone statues, often covering their eyes so that they will not see each other and lock themselves forever in stone form. Their name is an allusion to this defence mechanism.
First Faced: The Third Doctor
The Sontarans are a race of belligerent and militaristic clones who waged eternal war throughout the Mutter's Spiral against the Rutan Host.
The Fifth Master
Actor: John Simm
Aspects of Simm's Master parallel Tennant's (Tenth) Doctor, primarily in his ability to make light of tense situations. According to the producers, this was done to make the Master more threatening to the Doctor by having him take one of his opponent's greatest strengths, as well as making the parallels between the two characters more distinctive. In an episode of Doctor Who Confidential, Lords and Masters, Russell T Davies also classifies the Master as both a sociopath and a psychopath.
First Faced: The First Doctor
Daleks are organisms from the planet Skaro, integrated within a tank-like or robot-like mechanical casing. The resulting creatures are a powerful race bent on universal conquest and domination, utterly without pity, compassion or remorse. Various storylines portray them as having had every emotion removed except hate, leaving them with a desire to purge the Universe of all non-Dalek life. Very occasionally they are shown as experiencing other emotions, including fear, although such occurrences are rare.
Collectively they are the greatest extraterrestrial enemies of the Time Lord and series protagonist, the Doctor. Their famous catchphrase is "Exterminate!", with each syllable individually screeched in a frantic electronic voice.
The Crack in Time
First Faced: The Eleventh Doctor
All of time and space coming to an end. That end is in the fire in the crack. In the end the cause was the explosion of the Doctor's TARDIS.
The Second Master
Actor: Anthony Ainley
In many of his appearances opposite the Fifth Doctor, the Master shows his penchant for disguise once again. For example, in Time-Flight he operates under concealment for no clear plot reason. The character's association with playful pseudonyms also continued both within the series and in its publicity: when the production team wished to hide the Master's involvement in a story, they credited the character under an anagrammatic alias such as "Neil Toynay" (Tony Ainley) or "James Stoker" (Master's Joke).
First Faced: The Tenth Doctor
The Ood are a fictional alien species with telepathic abilities from the long running science fiction series Doctor Who. In the series' narrative, they live in the distant future (circa 42nd century).
First Faced: The First Doctor
The Cybermen are a fictional race of cyborgs who are amongst the most persistent enemies of the Doctor in the British science fiction television series, Doctor Who. Cybermen were originally a wholly organic species of humanoids originating on Earth's twin planet Mondas that began to implant more and more artificial parts into their bodies as a means of self-preservation. This led to the race becoming coldly logical and calculating, with emotions usually only shown when naked aggression was called for.
The First Master
Actor: Roger Delgado
A would-be universal conqueror, the Master wants to control the universe (in The Deadly Assassin his ambitions were described as becoming "the master of all matter", and in "The Sound of Drums" he acknowledges that he chose the name "the Master"), with a secondary objective of eliminating and/or hurting the Doctor. The original (and most common before 1996) look of the character was similar to that of the classic Svengali character; a black Nehru outfit with a beard and moustache. He would often use disguises and brainwashing to operate in normal society, while setting up his plans; he also tried to use other alien races and powers as his means to conquest, such as the Autons and the Daemons. Delgado's portrayal of the Master was as a suave, charming and somewhat sociopathic individual, able to be polite and murderous at almost the same time.
Victoria Waterfield (2nd Doctor)
Actor: Deborah Watling
Victoria Waterfield is a fictional character played by Deborah Watling in the long-running British science fiction television series Doctor Who. A native of Victorian England, she was a companion of the Second Doctor and a regular in the programme from 1967 to 1968.

Rose Tyler (9th/10th Doctor)
Actor: Billie Piper
Rose Marion Tyler is a fictional character portrayed by Billie Piper in the long-running British science fiction television series Doctor Who, and was created by series producer Russell T Davies. With the revival of Doctor Who in 2005, Rose was introduced in the eponymous series one premiere as a new companion of series protagonist the Doctor, in his ninth and later tenth incarnations. The companion character, intended to act as an audience surrogate was key in the first series more so than any other to introduce new viewers to Doctor Who, which had not aired regularly since 1989. The series saw Billie Piper receive top billing alongside Christopher Eccleston and David Tennant, both of whom portrayed the Doctor. A regular companion of the Doctor for all of series one and series two, Rose also returned in the programme's fourth series having developed much in the interval.
