Dr Rhenborg was a scientist known for his "living plastic creations". Rose Tyler briefly came across a website relating to him whilst searching the internet for information on the Ninth Doctor. She did not, however, click on it. (TV: Rose)

Behind the scenes Edit

This article on Dr Rhenborg was a real article, written by Anders Sandberg, a transhumanist researcher from Sweden, and published on a section of his website dedicated to Mage: The Ascension roleplay material, presented as real-world coverage of a fringe science.

In fact, around the time that Rose was broadcast, Sandberg's article on Dr Rhenborg was indeed the first result on Google for "Doctor Living Plastic"[1], but sometime after 2010 this section of Sandberg's personal website was discontinued.
