908 words - 4 pages

Personal Heroes and Heroic QualitiesOut amongst the stars, in the enormity of space, you can feel the universe no matter the time or the place. A Time Lord is what he is in the inside, but if you really do see him you'll know who he is. He's a Time Lord from the planet Gallifrey the constellation-kasterborous, he's 1203 years old and he's the man who has saved the universe countless times. He's The Doctor. "Demons run, when a good man goes to war. Night will fall and drown the sun, when a good man goes to war. Friendship dies and true love lies. Night will fall and the dark will rise, when a good man goes to war", a wise man (The Doctor) once said. One question everybody asks. How is The Doctor so awesome, angry, and wise in one form of a person?The Doctor is awesome for many reasons. He is a Time Lord from the uninhibited planet Gallifrey whom has two hearts.

He also regenerates into different incarnations, which by the way doesn't change his personality but only his appearance. The Doctor has already incarnated into eleven different bodies that have all flied different looking TARDIS's. The TARDIS looks like a 1950's police box, but it's bigger on the inside and smaller from the outside, with over one hundred rooms inside.

The sonic screwdriver is a multipurpose tool and defense mechanism that can control anything metal or electronic but is ineffective to wood. The Sonic Screwdriver was considered to be very advanced Gallifrey technology.The Eleventh Doctor is truly the most absurd yet raggedy Doctor so far. He makes the most random jokes like, "Bow ties are cool", or "It's a fez, I wear a fez now. Fezzes are cool." He also has this irritating yet endearing sarcasm that will make you enjoy and find irresistible, not only as an actor but also as The Doctor. He has this bizarre looking walk where he walks from side-to-side and bends his knees all the way up to his waist. He looks so scruffy to the extend that he actually looks pretty good, with his bow tie and tweed coat.Amongst his funny and good side, he also has a pretty dark side. He's dark side is revealed only around his greatest enemies, who are known as the Daleks. The Daleks were the mutated children of the Kaleds of the planet Skaro. They fought The Doctor in the Last Great Time War, ending...
