Doctor: The Seventh

The Seventh Doctor

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.
Companions: Ace:


Ace was swept away from Perivale by a timestorm caused by 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".
