The Doctor is the main character of the British TV series Doctor Who. He is the last of his race, the Time Lords of Gallifrey. He travels through space and time on hisTARDIS, and generally has between one and three companions with him.

[edit] Physical Appearance

The Doctor is a Time Lord, meaning that he is able to regenerate. Regeneration changes his appearance, so the doctor's appearance changes dramatically at times. The doctor has always been a male, and has generally been of average height. His age, facial features, and other characteristics change.

[edit] Personality

The doctor is portrayed in slightly different ways by different actors, but there are some recurring personality traits that stay the same. The doctor is lonely, and chooses to travel with companions. While some of the doctor's first companions were unwillingly brought into the TARDIS, the doctor has almost always had someone travel with him. With his own race dead, the doctor seems to have chosen humans as his preferred companions. He has commented that humans remind him of Time Lords. Humans have a similar appearance to Time Lords, and also have some of the same flaws: greed, anger, etc. The doctor has seen how these flaws affected Time Lord society, and seems determined to save humanity from a similar fate. Because he is the last of his race, and because he spends most of his time around humans, the doctor is generally surrounded by people who are far less powerful than him. This has caused the doctor to become arrogant in some cases. Angry because he cannot fix his own past, the doctor travels through time, fixing the problems of the galaxy. The doctor ultimately has the ability to change the outcome of any event in time, and does so at times simply to entertain himself or to get revenge against old enemies.
