||The Seventh Doctor is short, dark-haired, and speaks with a slight scottish accent. He thinks of himself as "Time's Champion", deliberately seeking out situations to "put right". He usually has a plan, and is willing to manipulate everyone - including his companions - to achieve it.
||The Second (flashbacks)|
|The second Doctor is short with a beatles moptop. He tends to act the part of a fool and give events a push in the right direction rather than directly taking control. He also plays the recorder.
||Ace was swept away from Perivale by a timestorm caused by a powerful being called Fenric. She arrived on Iceworld in the far future, where she met the Doctor in Dragonfire (Season 24). Ace is a bit of a teenaged delinquent, but has grown up during her time with the Doctor. She uses a home-made explosive called nitro-nine, and prefers her nickname of Ace to her real name of Dorothy. She calls the Doctor "Professor".
||The Timewyrm is a malevolent creature of immense power from ancient Gallifreyan legend. She was created during Timewyrm: Genesys when an alien called Ishtar interfaced with the Doctor's TARDIS. In Timewyrm: Exodus, the Doctor dispersed her form.
||The flashbacks to the second Doctor's era happen soon after his regeneration in Power of the Daleks (Season 4), at the start of The Enemy of the World (Season 5), and just before he regenerates in The War Games (Season 6).
||The book follow on from Timewyrm: Genesys and Timewyrm: Exodus, and sets the scene for Timewyrm: Revelation.
