A Silurian/Sea Devil hybrid, showing traits of both parents. (PROSE: The Scales of Injustice)

A hybrid was a lifeform produced from the mating of parents of two different species or a mixture of DNA from two species. The Eighth Doctor claimed that two species were "hardly ever" able to interbreed, and "certainly not" when physiology was as different as the termite-like Kromon and the humanoid Eutermesans. (AUDIO: The Creed of the Kromon)

Impacts of hybridisation[]

Hybrids were not always healthy. Hybridisation was known to cause terrible mutations. (TV: Delta and the Bannermen) Some individuals were sterile and had shortened lifespans. (PROSE: The Scales of Injustice) Other hybrids were more successful. Flisk/human hybrids were better at reading the minds of humans than pure Flisk. (PROSE: Snowglobe 7)

General examples[]

Silurians and Sea Devils could create cross breeds, even though they were different species. Their hybrids were shunned by society, were sterile and had shorter lifespans due to cellular degeneration. (PROSE: The Scales of Injustice)

The Raxacoricofallapatorians and their relatives from their sister planet, the Abzorbalovians, sometimes bred together; the Abzorbalovian Rebels were descended from the Raxacoricofallapatorian Huspick Degenerate. (WC: Monster File: Slitheen)

In the 26th century, Githians couldn't marry outside their species since they had trouble maintaining the purity of their gene pool. (AUDIO: Phobos)

By the year 5,000,000,000, interbreeding and evolution had resulted in there being only one "pure" human left, Cassandra O'Brien.Δ17. She considered the rest of the current human race "mongrels". (TV: The End of the World)

Individual hybrids[]

Human and Time Lord hybrids[]

The Eighth Doctor described himself several times as half-human on his mother's side. (TV: Doctor Who, PROSE: Alien Bodies, Unnatural History, The Shadows of Avalon, Grimm Reality) His half-human heritage paradoxically coexisted with being a fully loomed Time Lord, and the Doctor could not remember which came first. (PROSE: The Scarlet Empress, The Infinity Doctors, Unnatural History, The Shadows of Avalon) The Doctor's biodata constantly shifted, each change being equally valid regardless of contradiction, (PROSE: Unnatural History) and it was suggested his half-humanity was a subconscious and self-inflected change. (PROSE: The Blue Angel) He later suggested that he first said it as a ruse to fool the Master, involving the use of a Chameleon Arch. (COMIC: The Forgotten) However, Time Lords such as former President Flavia considered him half-human. (PROSE: Apocrypha Bipedium) Me speculated that the Doctor liked Earth so much because he was half-human, making him the Hybrid. (TV: Hell Bent)

The Eighth Doctor's debated heritage is not an isolated event; despite the sterility of the Time Lords, (PROSE: Cat's Cradle: Time's Crucible, Lungbarrow, The Book of the War) human and Gallifreyan hybrids were possible, (PROSE: Lungbarrow, The Gallifrey Chronicles) if through alternative means. (PROSE: The Book of the War) There were only a handful of cases throughout history, at least from the perspective of the City of the Saved. (PROSE: The Book of the War)

Andred and his wife Leela conceived a son, which would make him a Time Lord-human hybrid. (PROSE: Lungbarrow)

Grandfather Halfling (PROSE: The Book of the War) and Allisheer St Marx, two important residents of the City of the Saved, were of mixed human and Great House heritage. (PROSE: Of the City of the Saved...)

The Doctor's great-grandson, Alex Campbell, was also half-human, being the child of Susan Foreman and David Campbell. (AUDIO: An Earthly Child) Gallifreyan genes constituted only 7% of his genome so he had no telepathic abilities and couldn't regenerate. (AUDIO: Relative Dimensions)

Although both Amy Pond and Rory Williams were human, their child, Melody Pond, contained Time Lord DNA as a result of her being conceived in a TARDIS that was travelling through the Time Vortex, and being altered by the Silence to use as a weapon. (TV: A Good Man Goes to War)

Rose Tyler and Corin's child was half-human and half Human-Time Lord Meta-Crisis. (PROSE: The Turning of the Tide)

Time Lord and human hybrids seemed to maintain unique retinal traits; the Eighth Doctor's eyes constantly shifted colour, (PROSE: Vampire Science, Unnatural History, Mad Dogs and Englishmen) and Allisheer St Marx, whose father Handramit was from House Mirraflex, had "mirror flecked" eyes. (PROSE: Of the City of the Saved...)

Andrea Quill and Ballon's child was a half-Quill, half-Lorr hybrid. (TV: The Metaphysical Engine, or What Quill Did)

Hybrids produced by other means[]

When the Pyroviles tried to conquer Earth, they converted the Sibylline Sisterhood into human-Pyrovile hybrids. (TV: The Fires of Pompeii)

After the Doctor resurrected Ashildr using the Mire repair kit, Ashildr became human with "a little piece" of Mire technology inside her. According to the Twelfth Doctor, this meant that "in a way, she's a hybrid." (TV: The Girl Who Died) Sam Swift later became a hybrid of the same nature, created by the same means. (TV: The Woman Who Lived)

When the Tenth Doctor halted his regeneration by shifting his regeneration energy into his severed hand, a Meta-Crisis occurred, resulting in Donna Noble being turned into a Time Lord-human hybrid, giving her the Doctor's knowledge (although the Doctor later had to erase her memory lest she burn up). The Doctor's hand turned into a duplicate of the Doctor apart from having only one heart as opposed to two, being unable to regenerate and having the lifespan of a human. (TV: Journey's End)

In 1994 Alaska, the reviving Permians inadvertently used their bioelectric fields to fuse together the bodies of nearby wildlife (such as seals and walruses) into monstrous hybrids which attacked people out of pain and fear. Many of these were consumed by the Permians, and the rest died soon after the Permians did, as they required their energy to sustain them. (AUDIO: The Land of the Dead)

The Karfelon Megelen became a Karfelon-Morlox hybrid by way of a scientific accident involving Mustakozene-80 which fused his DNA with that of a Morlox creature. (TV: Timelash)

The Eutermesan L'da and the human Charlotte Pollard were genetically engineered into Kromon queens. (AUDIO: The Creed of the Kromon)

The Hybrid[]

Main article: The Hybrid

Davros attempted to transform some of his Daleks into Time Lord hybrids, intending to fulfil an ancient Gallifreyan prophecy which warned of a Dalek-Time Lord Hybrid that would conquer Gallifrey. (TV: The Witch's Familiar) However, the Twelfth Doctor later claimed that the Daleks would never allow anything to be "half Dalek" and that the hybrid of Time Lord prophecy was "Me". (TV: Heaven Sent) He later shared this theory with Me, at which point she countered with the theory that either he singly was the Hybrid or-if the Hybrid could be interpreted as being more than one being, the pair of the Doctor and his companion Clara Oswald. (TV: Hell Bent)
