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", but sometime after 2010 this section of Sandberg's personal website was discontinued.
