John Jones was a humanoid chameleon who worked as a pop musician in London during the 1960s and a companion of the Eleventh Doctor.

Jones followed Alice Obiefune and the Eleventh Doctor out of a club after his first concert to confront them about their negative thoughts on his music. He snuck into the TARDIS unnoticed and was transported to Mississippi in 1931. (COMIC: What He Wants...)

Appearance

As a chameleon, Jones' true appearance was impossible to say because he routinely revamped himself. He once said to Alice, "The look I got from that last planet was ace. Takes time to glam meself up like that. I'm am artist." (COMIC: Space in Dimension Relative and Time)

Behind the scenes

The character of Jones was inspired by real-life musician David Bowie. The title of his album Abanazar's Madness is a parody of Bowie's Aladdin Sane. Similarly, his aliases as the chameleon of pop, the Tall Pale Earl and Xavi Moonburst are similar to Bowie's aliases and characters as the chameleon of rock, the Thin White Duke and Ziggy Stardust, respectively.[source needed]
