The 10th Doctor Bio....

The Tenth Doctor



When the Doctor absorbed the Time Vortex from his companion, Rose Tyler, the forces contained in himself began to destroy every cell in his body. He regenerated for a ninth time to save his life. The Doctor immediately de-materialized the TARDIS from its location on Satellit 5, leaving the now-immortal Captain Jack Harkness behind. The Doctor piloted the ship back to the Powell Estates in London on Christmas Eve 2006 and lapsed into a comatose state, but snapped out of it briefly and then for a longer time in order to beat back an invasion of planet Earth by the Sycorax on Christmas morning. During this adventure he had his hand cut off while in a sword fight with the Sycorax leader but, still retaining enough cellular energy from his regeneration, grew it back.


Although a bit disappointed after his regeneration of not being ginger, he seems to have done well with his brown hair that has had many different styles through the series.

He wears pin strip suits with a shirt and tie and a light brown overcoat that he claims being given to him by Janis Joplin.He proudly sports his wearing Trainers that range in colors of white, cream, black, and red thus far.

When he is wanting to look intelligent, even though he needs not to wear them, he tends to wear a pair of dark tortoise shell rectangular framed glasses that he himself has called "the brainy specs".
