Mike’s 11 Doctors of Dr. Who
9. Dr. John A. Zoidberg
Clearly the most usual of all the doctors, Dr. Zoidberg is the ninth doctor. He started out, coincidentally, as the doctor at the company Planet Express. However, after his regeneration he had many adventures, mainly travelling back in time. He helped save London from an invasion by the Autons and in Utah 2012 found that a single Dalek was being kept in a secret museum filled with alien artefacts. There, the first details of the Time War fought by the Time Lords and Daleks were revealed, and how it concluded with the mutual annihilation of both races, leaving the Doctor the last of the Time Lords. We also learn his knowledge of human anatomy and physiology is atrocious. For example, he cannot tell the difference between robots and humans (or human males and females), believes food is digested in the heart, and that humans have multiple mouths and a dorsal fin. When frightened or fleeing from danger, Zoidberg makes a high-pitched whooping sound or squirts ink at his attacker. It is soon learned that The Dalek Emperor had survived the Time War, and had rebuilt the Dalek race. To save his companion the Doctor kisses her, absorbing fatal energy that was trying to consume her. However, the damage to his cells caused him to begin the regeneration process. Finally at peace with himself, his last words are, “Rose, before I go I just wanna tell you – you were fantastic…absolutely fantastic…and d’you know what? So was I!” Immediately thereafter he regenerates into the Tenth Doctor.
10. Dr. Edward George Armstrong
The Tenth Doctor, Dr. Edward George Armstrong, was a world famous Harley Street surgeon until his alcoholism made him kill a lady in surgery. To be able to be the Tenth Doctor without arousing suspicion he fakes his own death with the help of Justice Lawrence John Wargrave on an island. After regenerating he defeats the alien Sycorax and saves Earth; in the process, he loses a hand, which regrows owing to his recent regeneration. Thought-deceased archenemy and fellow Time Lord the Master (John Simm) becomes Prime Minister of the United Kingdom and enslaves the Doctor for one year. This doctor appears to not have a regular companion. However, He meets archaeologist and future companion River Song for the first time and she dies, but he stores her consciousness to a hard drive to live on forever, after accepting that one day she will come to mean a lot to him. The Doctor sacrifices his life to save Wilfred Mott, exposing himself to 500,000 rads of deadly radiation and triggering his regeneration. He holds it back and is shown visiting several companions.[a] He gives Donna a winning lottery ticket on her wedding day, saves Martha and Mickey from a Sontaran sniper, saves Sarah Jane’s son Luke (Tommy Knight) from a car, introduces Jack to a romantic interest, Alonso Frame (Russell Tovey), and before regenerating into the Eleventh Doctor (Matt Smith), informs Rose circa 2005 that she is about to have a “great year.” As he begins regenerating, his last words are “I don’t want to go”.
11. Dr. Frank N Furter
The last and most famous of all the Doctors is Dr. Frank N Furter. Known as the ‘Sweet Transvestite from Transsexual, Transylvania.’ Oringinally a crazed scientist, he embarks on the adventures as the eleventh doctor. He is tricked into spawning a new generation of Daleks and encounters an unknown force that makes the TARDIS explode, causing the universe to collapse in on itself. Though he closes the cracks—reversing their effects and preventing the explosion—the Doctor himself is erased from history. However, he remembered back into exsist with the help of his companions, Riff-Raff and Magenta. In his last appearance, Dr. Frank N Furter fully embraces his mad scientist side by moving into an old castle with a fully functioning laboratory. Becoming more insanely wild, he creates a perfect specimen of man and then murders his former love. It is at this point he meets his final enemy, Dr. Everett Scott. Paranoid, he accuses the guests he hosting of spying for Dr. Scott. Later losing control, he captures them with the Medusa Transducer, transforming them into statues. They are then forced to perform a live cabaret floor show and have an orgy in the pool, with Frank as the leader. The performance is interrupted by his companions, Riff Raff and Magenta, who stage a coup and announce their plan to return to the planet of Transsexual in the galaxy of Transylvania. In the process, they kill Dr. Frank N Furter and his creation.
