Pete was an attendant at the Walker General Hospital morgue in 1999. Pete and his co-worker, Ted, took in the Seventh Doctor's body after he died during surgery on 30 December 1999. Later, while Pete watched the film version of Frankenstein, the Doctor regenerated into his eighth incarnation and burst out of the morgue. This frightened Pete so much that he fainted. When reporting what he saw, he was mocked, being told he should try stronger drugs.
Pete was later at the hospital's New Year's Eve costume party. Ted, having had his Wild Bill Hickok costume stolen by the Doctor, had dressed instead as a walking corpse in order to scare Pete. (TV: Doctor Who)
