The 10th Doctor: Doctor Who? Essay

1546 words - 6 pages

In attempt to escape the rather boring events of reality we have many forms of entertainment. One television show by the name of Doctor Who has grabbed the attention of Syfy lovers everywhere. There are many great characters that come and go, but one is constant and his name is the Doctor. The 10th Doctor is recognized as the favorite Doctor not only for his unique personality and appearance, but his adventures with his companions and his odd equipment as well.
The 10th Doctor was regenerated from the 9th Doctor. It changes his appearance and personality, but his wisdom and knowledge stays the same. Regeneration is a way to escape death for Time Lords like the Doctor. He is the last of the Time Lords because he was the only one to survive the Time War.
In the Time War, there was a major enemy called the Dalek. They were machines the Time Lords fought against with everything they had. Just one Dalek could cause mass destruction and chaos. Some can even destroy a whole planet by themselves.
The Doctor’s home planet was called Gallifrey and it was home to all the Time Lords. Although, that was before the Time War. After the war, Gallifrey was destroyed along with all the Time Lords, except the Doctor. The Time Lords weren’t the only ones wiped out. All the Dalek were destroyed as well, making the Doctor the only survivor.
The Doctor has some “toys” that he uses quite frequently. First is his TARDIS, which stands for Time and Relative Dimension in Space. It’s his time machine that is cloaked to look like a 1960s style London police box. When he was in 1963 it ended up being stuck to look that way and by the time the TARDIS was fixed the look had grown on him so he kept it (The Beginner’s Guide to the TARDIS).
On the outside the TARDIS looks exactly like a London police box, but on the inside it is gigantic (The Tardis). When you walk inside it opens up to a room with controls that make the TARDIS go anywhere in the universe at any time (The Beginner’s Guide to the TARDIS).
It was said that the TARDIS has a numerous amount of rooms (The Beginner’s Guide to the TARDIS). The Doctor even mentions a few rooms in the TV series. Although, the old series actually showed different rooms like bedrooms, the cloak room, zero room, and more. Rooms other than the control room and cloak room haven’t been shown during the 10th Doctor’s time. The cloak room is a room with a mall-sized wardrobe. Other rooms that have been mentioned are bedrooms, bathrooms, an observatory, a library, greenhouse, swimming pool room, and so many more (The Beginner’s Guide to the TARDIS).
Second is his sonic screwdriver, which can open almost any door or window. It can fix practically anything and it’s his live saver when he’s in a fix. He always has it with him in his inner coat pocket.
Each Doctor’s personalities are different, but ultimately they are the same person. The 10th Doctor’s Personality is very unique. He is quite talkative, witty, energetic, and cheeky. He often...
