As if it wasn't obvious lol.

Doctor Who: The Doctor Who Themes 1963 - 2010 (Every Doctor Who Theme)

And just for that added bit of history, here's all of the Doctor's Regeneration cycles.

Doctor Who: Regeneration (All The Doctor's Regenerations 1963 - 2010)

And because I accidentally found this while looking for information on our favorite Doctor, here's a special edition of The Weakest Link!

http://elliquiy.com/forums/index.php?topic=134913.0  IC Thread

WOW!  That's all I can say after just completing the sixth and last, (so far,) season of the greatest sci fi show of all time.  Doctor Who, the Raggedy Man, the Coming Storm, the Destroyer of Worlds, and so much more, has had his greatest and some might even say darkest adventure to date that I'm aware of anyway.  While I've only watched the new seasons that started to come out around 2005 or so, I've watched them all at least twice so far and I still can't get enough.  All that aside, besides my Redwall RP I'm hoping to get going and with my health starting to improve at last, I'm thinking it's high time someone did something quite extraordinary around here.  I say, it's high time that the Doctor came to E, and this time he's not disappearing as he has done a few times in the past because I felt I wasn't ready to handle such an extensive history as the one provided by Doctor Who.  The whole of time and space is out there waiting for us, and I say it's time to go on a little trip through the TARDIS!  So, grab your gear, grab your friends, and let's all go on the greatest adventure you could possibly imagine.  Daleks, Cybermen, Slitheen, Torchwood, UNIT, everything out there and far more of our own creations if you so please can be thrown into the mix at will by yours truly, all lead by the Doctor of course, the greatest character to ever exist, storied and fabled after throughout the entire universe.  Tonight, the Doctor is making one hell of a house call!

So, to kick things off I need interest!  Let's see some hustle here boys and girls!  I'm positively brimming with ideas to put into this little epic yarn, but I'm always happy to hear your own along the way.  As it's been said before, the whole of time and space is open to us, so let's make this one hell of a story!  Sorry, hyped up on Mountain Dew at the moment lol.  Anyway, here's the beginning of what I hope will be a glorious adventure.  Let's kick this off with a bang!  And pardon me for saying but I always thought the tenth Doctor, played by David Tennant, was the best of the lot.  Anyway, as I've said before many times, I do not mind if you bring in canon characters, but I do ask that you try to do a good impression of them, at least at first until they've had time to change accordingly of course.  Beyond that, just know your history a bit and that'll be enough for me.  So, without further ado, ALLON-SY!

An example of the character sheet, should be the final one too before anyone asks.

Name;  (Obvious here, but there can only be ONE Doctor this time around unless there's very extreme circumstances of course such can be witnessed at least twice that I'm aware of.  Could be wrong though lol.)
Gender; 
Date of Birth;  (Regardless of where or when you come from, everyone has a day they are born.)
Planet of Origin;
Race/Species;  (Unless alien I do ask you be as complete on these parts as you can be guys and gals.  Aliens not seen in the show can be included, but I do ask that you not pick one that would rather see the Doctor and his friends dead is all.)
Nationality;
Ethnicity;
Appearance;
Abilities;  (Just as there can only be one Doctor, I do ask that there only be one person like Captain Jack Harkness, the man that cannot die for those that don't know.  Beyond that, just be reasonable and believable is all I ask for whatever you choose to be.)
Skills;  (Again, be reasonable.  These are learned over time, through experience, etc etc.)
Equipment;  (From the signature sonic screwdriver to a compact laser deluxe hidden in quite an unmentionable place, as long as it's within reason I'm all for it.  And PLEASE don't lose anything in a past time line lest you want to destroy the future as we know it lol.)
Personality;  (I always ask for more than one line in posts, and this goes for parts of the profile as well.  The personality tab is one of those parts I want some detail please and thank you.)
Background Information;  (Anything you're willing to share, but I do ask for two paragraphs, five sentences a piece here guys and gals.  More is always a plus however.)

And now it's in a handy coded format!

Code: [Select]
[b]Name;[/b]  (Obvious here, but there can only be ONE Doctor this time around unless there's very extreme circumstances of course such can be witnessed at least twice that I'm aware of.  Could be wrong though lol.)

I hardly even watch TV anymore these days, but this is one of the few shows I'll actually put the effort in for. Assuming you don't mind having me along for another RP, all I can say is, hell yeah!

Not a problem Ignis, take what time you need since this hasn't gotten nearly as much attention as I'd have hoped it might have.  Still, I'll give it a few days yet and see what happens.

Welcome aboard Polymorph.  Glad to have you here.

While we're here I just wanted to say that while I plan to take the role of Doctor unless someone else thinks they can do an equally or even better job at the role than me.  I only say this because I'd be glad to let someone else have the leading role, but I will have pretty high standards of whoever tries is the catch.  Still, if someone else does somehow rise to the occasion, then it would free me up to run the game itself as well as whatever you happen to come across, but if not I'll still do the best I can but....well you get the idea I'm sure.

Name;  The Doctor.  (10th incarnation.)
Gender;  Male
Date of Birth;  He tends to use different meanings of the term year for each person he meets, so his age is uncertain.  That and the Doctor does tend to lie at times.
Planet of Origin;  The home of the Time Lords, Gallifrey
Race/Species;  Gallifreyan, or Time Lord if you prefer.
Nationality;  Has a British accent in most of his appearances, and the tenth is no different.
Ethnicity;  Appears Caucasian
Appearance; 
Spoiler: Click to Show/Hide
Abilities;  All Time Lords can cheat death by regenerating themselves.  Doing so changes them, not just their outer appearance but also how they act, how they think, how they view the world, everything, but some parts remain the same.  They remember their history, who they were, things like that.  The Doctor himself has some psychic abilities which while they require him to touch someone's face with both hands, he can do quite a bit with what he can do.  He's extremely intelligent, charismatic, and able to lead if the need calls for it.  He can also purge his system of some poisons by detoxing himself, but it does require a second person since having your own body shut down on you does make one a bit distracted.
Skills;  He has college degrees across several sciences as well as an advanced medical degree in both human and xenobiologies.  He's not a doctor of everything for nothing.
Equipment;  He never carries a gun.  A sonic screwdriver however, that's another story.  Other than that and the clothes on his back, he tends to fly by the seat of his pants, picking up or making gadgets as he needs them.
Personality;  Unlike his immediate predecessor, who was plagued by melancholy due to his actions during the Last Great Time War, this incarnation was much more outgoing and genial, a demeanour that hid the "survivor's guilt" that had plagued him since the war. Over his life, however, the weight became much more pronounced. He was haunted by companions lost, enemies believed long-dead and events that threatened the fabric of time itself.
Background Information;  Where does one begin in describing the Doctor's past?  Do you start with the Last Great Time War, where he was the sole survivor of both the Daleks and his own people because he destroyed them both?  Do you go back further, at the beginning of the Dalek/Time Lord war when Davros created the very nightmarish beings that would stalk time from both directions for ages uncounted for?  Regardless of where you start, one thing is certain, and that is the Doctor has seen so much and done so much, and no one has ever stopped to thank him.  From dinosaurs to Satellite 5, from Earth our day to the end of all existence, he has seen it all.

Recent events have forced him back into a previous incarnation, something that has never happened before to a Time Lord that he's aware of anyway,  Still, he's not complaining since he hadn't wanted to leave the form he has now.  He's still traveling, still picking up companions, or at least he will be again....as soon as he figures out how to land the TARDIS without blowing up the sun in the process.  Long story that, but needless to say being forced back an incarnation wasn't without its side effects.  He'll be back to normal in no time though, if everything sorts itself out alright....

Name; Khaesar Reynolds
Gender; Male
Date of Birth;  13/11/4233
Planet of Origin; Earth (of The Second Great and Bountiful Human Empire)
Race/Species;  Human
Nationality; Irish
Ethnicity; Caucasian
Appearance;
Spoiler: Click to Show/Hide
Abilities; Khaesar is, while highly talented, just human.   
Skills;  Khaesar was once a member of the Human Empire's most elite spec-ops unit. He's familiar with an unreasonable amount of the 81,042 forms of combat known to mankind and many other skills related to infiltration, exfiltration, covert operations, survival, counterinsurgency, escape, computer security, hacking and many other skills of their ilk. He however retired from military six years ago and has dedicated his time to adventuring. He can also cook really well.
Equipment; Khaesar wears on his wrist (or rather, on a leather strap around his wrist) a super computer. It has an AI and aside from working out all sorts of crazy things for him, it can remotely take over just about any computer system or mechanical device native to his time period of previous, so long as it has some kind of a computer for it to control. A trinket from his spec ops days. While not really "equipment," he still wears his dog tags. Just to remind himself of where he's from. 
Personality; Khaesar is a man re-born, after having a nervous breakdown six years ago and going through some PTSD he met The Doctor, who helped a mentally devastated old soldier get off his feet and give life another go. On his good days he's an upbeat individual who wants nothing more to help other people, on his bad days he's reminded that his eternal quest to help people is directly as a result of his unforgivable actions when he served in the military. He's determined to right as many wrongs as possible. Once a man with no other skill but to kill he's sworn off guns and if given the choice he'd be a pacifist but the universe just isn't that kind. Every now and then he's got to call on those old skills to protect the someone who can't protect themselves. He might get up in the morning and remember the bad things he's done, but he goes to bed knowing the balance is usually one person more in his favour. 
Background Information; Once upon a time there was a young man named Khaesar Reynolds, he was a proud citizen of The Second Great and Bountiful Human Empire, a native of Earth itself. This young lad was so proud of Humanity that there was nothing he could think of better to do with his life then defend humanity itself, so he joined the army! Little did young Khaesar realise how good he'd be. It was soon noticed by others. His body and mind were absolutely perfect for it. Khaesar was put through advanced training programs, then even more advanced training programs. His ability was just about off the charts. He performed so well he was signed on for the mother advancing training programs. The level he was getting involved in was "Top Secret" wrapped in "Doesn't Exist." Khaesar Reynolds was a damn ghost. As it would happen however, his missions weren't always what he thought. It wasn't always about protecting humanity. Sometimes alien races had to be taught their place in the Empire. Khaesar was doing what he did best (which was just about always violent and involved "leave no witnesses") for a long time. Eventually that young man from Earth didn't quite recognize himself in the mirror. 

It was after one particularly brutal assignment that Khaesar broke down, he faked his death, fled his team (he had served on a group of five) and went off the grid. Khaesar made his way from drinking well to drinking well, alcohol eased the pain and illegal fights for money were a means to make cash and punish himself. It was win - win. Then he met someone...a guy who called himself, The Doctor. It was perhaps right place, right time but nasty business was going down and this Doctor was dedicated to stopping it. Khaesar had a skill set that was perfect to help. The Doctor picked up out of a gutter & helped him along and together they saved a lot of people. It was just what he needed. He swore off killing and guns altogether. From now on Khaesar Reynolds would only help people. So he travels the Universe, righting wrongs and making good on past misdeeds and every now and then he checks local records for a John Smith.

Just in case.

Name;  Jenny (Smith?)
Gender; Female
Date of Birth; The far future.
Planet of Origin; Messaline, A Human/Hath colony world
Race/Species;  Gallifreyan
Nationality; Has a British accent
Ethnicity; Caucasian
Appearance;
Spoiler: Click to Show/Hide
Abilities; Presumably has the abilities of her father, regeneration, superior intellect, etc
Skills;  Due to her unusual creation Jenny was 'born' with all the implanted knowledge necessary of a soldier, gymnastic ability, seduction.
Equipment; A small stolen space shuttle, advanced combat rifle.
Personality; Jenny shows a lot of the brilliance, lust for life, and determination of her father. She is also flirtatious. Though programming has made her military-minded and goal-oriented, she has too much of her father in her blood. While at first she showed violent intentions towards others, she soon adopted the Doctor's values and principles, though she also challenged him.   
Background Information; Jenny was created as a fully grown adult by progenesis from the Doctor's genetic sample.Her name was chosen for her by Donna Noble after the Doctor referred to her as a generated anomaly. She was destined to be a soldier in a generations long war between the Human and Hath colonists on her planet of birth. Though at first rejected by her father, she earned his respect and trust through her actions on the planet Messaline. Jenny initially followed her programmed instincts as a soldier, but contact with her father and his companions Donna Noble and Martha Jones led her to the realisation that war and killing was futile. Ultimately she spared the life of General Cobb, the leader of the Human faction and rejected her implanted conditioning. Though he accepted her as his own and intended her to travel on with him, she gave her life for his when General Cobb attempted to shoot the Doctor and Jenny took the bullet meant for him. The Doctor left Messaline believing her dead. She revived shortly afterwards, although whether this was due to a timelady's regeneration or a side effect of the planet seeding device is unclear. When last seen in the Whoniverse Jenny had stolen a shuttle and headed into space to save planets, rescue civilisations, defeat monsters and do an awful lot of running.

Since being parted from the Doctor, Jenny has been searching for him. Tracking down rumours and sightings she has always seemed to arrive too late to catch up with her father, though her wandering has led to adventures of her own. Her investigation has revealed that 21st century Earth is a regular stop for the Doctor and a region of space with temporal anomalies could provide a transit point through time and space to that point. Now if she can only hold her battered shuttle together, outrun the blockade ships quarantining the anomalies and chose the correct temporal rift she might finally be able to close in on her errant parent.

Poly, a little short on the history but otherwise it's absolutely perfect.  Jenny was the last person I was expecting to see lol.  At any rate, welcome aboard mate.  And Primarch, beautiful piece of work you have there for Kheaser my friend.  Welcome aboard as well.  I'd still like a few more people before I get too far ahead of myself but so far it's looking good.

Phoenix, voice of a nightingale, if you can't get into this now do not worry my friend.  And yes that was a Martha Jones reference from Captain Jack Harkness before anyone asks lol.  At any rate, if you do find yourself freer than you are now, feel free to pop on later.

Well...

Now that I've gotten myself more or less caught up and am not feeling guilty...

Looking at how slow my longer posting games seem to be, and how short post the quicker ones are. I may be able to squeeze in one more. I'll think on a character and see what I can come up with. Are we trying to stick to the heart of Doctor Who with all his human from modern earth companions coming from the UK, or is branching out a little alright... I'm kinda thinking someone Torchwood. None of the canon characters. I'm not overly fond of playing canon characters myself. If I want to play with those that's generally what fanfic is for. ;D

I hope that didn't come out wrong as you're going to be playing an incarnation of a known Doctor. That's your character and an entirely different story. The Doctor is a force to be reckoned with in and of himself, and doing something known with him is a whole lot less risky in my mind than coming up with your own version. Now I'm rambling. I'm gonna go away and think for a bit to stop the rambling.

Lol whatever you feel most comfortable with is alright by me, so don't worry on that.  And yes, branching out is fine by my standards.  Besides, I already kind of messed with the Doctor's own history by forcing him to regress to a previous form since currently as far as the show's concern, he was the 11th Doctor.  So already I've changed something with the whole universe with that alone, but you're right in saying that no matter what form he is, the Doctor is not someone you want to make an enemy out of.  Anyway, good luck and glad to have you aboard Phoenix.

Name;  lfwyn*
Gender;  Female
Date of Birth;  October 26th, 684 AD
Planet of Origin; Earth
Race/Species;  Human
Nationality; Mercian
Ethnicity; Anglo-Saxon

Appearance; Twenty-three years old, lfwyn is a slim and shapely beauty. By modern standards, she's quite tiny at 5'2." She has pale, clear skin; long, wavy auburn hair; and lovely, hazel eyes. Her body is shapely and feminine, but not especially voluptuous.

Abilities;  lfwyn is intelligent and capable, but is completely human.

Skills; As well as being an intelligent girl with plenty of common sense and basic skills, lfwyn is a talented herbalist and healer.

Equipment; lfwyn's signature piece of equipment is a large, rather battered-looking, brown leather shoulder bag that always seems to have exactly what she's looking for in it. While it looks ordinary, it's actually an exceptionally complex piece of temporal-dimensional technology from the distant future. 

Personality; flwyn has a good nature at heart, but she has a sharp tongue, little patience for foolishness, and can be ruthlessly practical when necessary. 

Background Information; Born in the Kingdom of Mercia in the 7th century in what would later become England, lfwyn is one of the daughters of a minor landholding family prominent in her village. While the family was minor nobility, they weren't so lofty that she was without household responsibility. She worked with her mother in the stillroom, ensuring that there were plenty of medicines and beer for the household. The general feeling of the villagers was that she was a bit of a witch, but a benevolent one.

Several years ago, her family fell out of favor with the newly Christian king. It was just about then that the Tardis arrived in the woods where she was collecting herbs and the Doctor stepped out, only to collapse on the ground in front of her, clearly injured. She crafted a makeshift travois and dragged him home, where she nursed him back to health. Just as he was recovering, the situation with the king came to a head and he arranged for lfwyn to be accused of witchcraft. The Doctor rescued her and her family, accidentally creating a local legend of a demon who rescued a witch that would last for over a thousand years.

The family ended up settling in a little British village in 1912, though lfwyn traveled with the Doctor for a short time before she settled there. When the Great War started, lfwyn, calling herself "Ellen" volunteered for the First Aid Nursing Yeomanry and went to France, putting herself in harms way to get injured men treated and off the battlefield.

*Feel free to spell it "Aelfwyn."

Aelfwyn looks like a real beauty.  Is she canon Who verse or someone original?  Just curious since I haven't seen any of the old shows, just the new ones, but at any rate I don't mind working out the details, but just not sure how we're going to collect everyone is the only thing spread across the stars and time since I plan to have him alone, for a few posts.

She's not canon. I normally prefer not to play canon characters. I actually haven't seen very many of the old series. It would help if they were all available on Netflix... :-)

We can work out the details however you prefer. I'd thought perhaps he picked her up a while ago and dropped her off someplace else? If you prefer, I'm glad to take the discussion to a PM.

Works for me Syene, and if you actually have an AIM or skype we could talk in either place.  Still, I like the idea you've got going already Syene, and it's good to have you aboard.

Expect me to try and get a profile up tomorrow, Verg, as well as a Redwall one if I feel confident in my research. Since most of his companions end up being female, anyway, is another female alright?

No rush. Gives me time to go and get replies in for the RPs I've severely fallen behind in...
