After the series of [[alien invasion]]s and other similar events leading up to [[2007]], Elton co-founded a group called [[LINDA]] with four others who were interested in the Doctor. He began recording a video diary in which he recalled his life up to that point and his subsequent, LINDA-related adventures. The group eventually got distracted from their original purpose and did things including novel readings, forming a band and "blubbing". In [[March]] of 2007, [[Victor Kennedy]] infiltrated LINDA so that, unknown to the rest of LINDA, he could absorb the Doctor. Elton tried reaching the Doctor through [[Jackie Tyler]], the mother of the Doctor's [[companion]], [[Rose Tyler]]. After meeting Jackie, she continually invited Elton over to her flat, ostensibly to do odd jobs like fixing fuses, but actually so that she could seduce him. When Rose rang her, Jackie came to her senses and realised what she was doing. Elton tried making up with Jackie by ordering a pizza, but Jackie discovered a photo of Rose in his jacket. Jackie was severely upset that he was initially using her and forced Elton to leave.

Elton Pope was a transport manager who did retail logistics for a "modest little haulage company" in London. He was a fan of Jeff Lynne and the Electric Light Orchestra.

Elton encountered the Tenth Doctor several times, first at the age of three or four, when he was awoken by the sound of the Doctor's TARDIS materialising. He went downstairs to find his mother dead in the corner of his lounge and the Doctor standing in the middle of the room. The Doctor said that his mother had been killed. He later explained to Elton that she had been killed by an Elemental Shade which had escaped from the Howling Halls.

After the series of alien invasions and other similar events leading up to 2007, Elton co-founded a group called LINDA with four others who were interested in the Doctor. He began recording a video diary in which he recalled his life up to that point and his subsequent, LINDA-related adventures. The group eventually got distracted from their original purpose and did things including novel readings, forming a band and "blubbing". In March of 2007, Victor Kennedy infiltrated LINDA so that, unknown to the rest of LINDA, he could absorb the Doctor.
