This article needs a big cleanup.

Now that it's become clearer that this is an offshoot of the prime Doctor rather than a coincidental parallel "lookalike", we should probably trim shared background, such as his early life which is identical in the "altered" and "normal" timelines, from this page.

These problems might be so great that the article's factual accuracy has been compromised. Talk about it here or check the revision history or Manual of Style for more information.

In an alternate timeline, an unspecified incarnation of the Doctor was a member of the High Council on Gallifrey.


Before Omega[]

The Doctor was mentioned in a number of prophecies. One prophecy, maintained as law by the Watch, was that after certain events came to pass, the Doctor was to be killed for the greater good of Gallifrey.

The Doctor was born to his mother Penelope and his father into the House of Lungbarrow. The Doctor remembered a time when his mother had been present. He had looked up at the stars and seen several ships. He had wanted to ask where they were going, but didn't. His mother had an old Bible, something that left such an impression on the Doctor that he remembered it centuries later. He compared the pages of a menu Omega gave him to his mother's Bible.

A friend of the family, Patience, was present at his birth. He got married to Patience, whom he later lost. (PROSE: The Infinity Doctors) After the Fifth Doctor witnessed Patience's death (PROSE: Cold Fusion) from which she was rescued by Omega, (PROSE: The Infinity Doctors) a Ferutu informed him that he would see her again in his future. (PROSE: Cold Fusion)

The Doctor formed friendships easily and maintained them despite his anarchic nature. His best and oldest friend was the Magistrate of the Citadel. The Doctor taught at the Time Lord Academy and inspired his students to think for themselves (again earning the ire of his colleagues). The Doctor earned the ire of some of his peers, mostly because of his iconoclastic and eccentric nature, but also because of his socially progressive mindset. Through years of arguments and cowboy diplomacy the Doctor got the Rutans and the Sontarans to sit down and discuss a ceasefire. Sadly, this met with stonewalling from both sides and opposition from the Time Lord Council, necessitating the Doctor to take more radical actions to force a peace.

When flashing through experiences and people from his distant and immediate past, the Doctor saw a heavily pregnant, professional-looking woman, a teenager with blonde streaks in her ginger hair, and a wiry young woman with blue eyes and blonde hair. (PROSE: The Infinity Doctors)

Facing the Effect[]

The Doctor once had a shared dream with the Eighth Doctor, who he looked very similar to except for in hairstyle. (PROSE: The Infinity Doctors, Father Time)

When the Time Lords faced the Effect, the Doctor decided to use it to change the past and save his wife. He went to the Needle and encountered the Needle People. He went through the door to the anti-matter universe. There he found Omega and Patience. With the Doctor in the anti-matter universe to keep it in existence, Omega could return to the matter universe. He possessed a copy of the Doctor created when the Doctor had programmed a transmat bracelet not to destroy his original body when he was teleported. The Doctor was content to live in the anti-matter universe with Patience. However, the paradise turned into a dark thunder storm when he considered Patience may have never truly been a part of his life, and merely inserted into his memories and experiences by Omega. While he never received an answer, Patience's character suddenly changed and she urged him to return and defeat Omega, implying the theory was correct. Inspired by her, he said goodbye and returned to the matter universe to stop Omega, who was trying to gain control of the Eye of Harmony. The Doctor could leave the anti-matter universe because Omega had exposed the raw singularity in the Eye of Harmony, through which the Doctor could return to the matter universe. The Doctor brought his anti-singularity together with Omega's singularity and Omega vanished. However, the Doctor had made up the concept of an anti-singularity. He didn't know what had happened to Omega. Patience was lost with the anti-matter universe, this time for good.

After that adventure, the Doctor wanted to leave Gallifrey again. (PROSE: The Infinity Doctors)

After Omega[]

Consequences and individuals from this incarnation's adventures were known to paradoxically intersect with the life of the Eighth Doctor during and after the War in Heaven. (PROSE: Seeing I, Unnatural History, Interference - Book Two, The Taking of Planet 5, Father Time, The Gallifrey Chronicles)

The Seventh Doctor recalled there had been four separate occasions in which he had fought Omega. (AUDIO: Cold Fusion)


The Doctor had a long oval face, an aristocratic nose, and a full mouth. He wore his hair close-cropped. He wore glasses, a battered cashmere jacket, pressed silk shirt and tailored tan trousers. He wore his old college scarf when greeting the Sontarans and Rutans on Gallifrey. (PROSE: The Infinity Doctors)
