The Eleven was the main alias used by a Time Lord criminal in their eleventh incarnation. They had a mental illness called regenerative dissonance, which manifested as their previous incarnations' personalities arguing in their mind. Each incarnation went by a sequential number.

Biography Edit

The One Edit

The One once worked in the Panopticon Archive, where he found information about a prototype stellar manipulator. He had a seat on the High Council, although this was explained as a result of the Council promoting him to the position when various other members were away on other business and a certain number of votes were required for particular motions to be passed. He later left Gallifrey and became a criminal.

During her meeting with the Eleven, Kiani hinted that the One had a different name before he became a criminal, but the Eleven insisted on calling him "the One".

Kiani also told the Eighth Doctor that the One had studied his story and was inspired by it. (AUDIO: The Eleven, The Satanic Mill)

The Two Edit

The Two boasted that his "nose was particularly good at sniffing out traitors." Within the Eleven, he exposed Volstrom's betrayal of Padrac as an agent of Ollistra. (AUDIO: Songs of Love)

While on a mission for the High Council with the Twelve, the Eighth Doctor described the Two as "the charmer". (AUDIO: Planet of the Ogrons)

The Three Edit

The Three, as noted by the Eighth Doctor, was one of the personalities more willing to kill. (AUDIO: The Eleven, Companion Piece) After finding out that Bliss was indeed a companion of the Doctor and that she wouldn't be killed by the Nine, the Three complained about it, and was told that one can't always get what they want. (AUDIO: Companion Piece)

The Four Edit

The Four was described by the Eighth Doctor as "weaker than the Eleven". (AUDIO: Stop the Clock)

Right after the Nine kidnapped Liv and Helen, the Four claimed it was his plan to disguise the Clocksmith's TARDIS as a police box to make it look like the Doctor's.

He explained to River Song that the companions of the Doctor kidnapped by the Nine couldn't escape because the prisoner cells of the prison were shifted fowards in time. (AUDIO: Companion Piece)

When the Nine met the Eleven, their versions of the Four spent time arguing with each other over the Nine's plan to use their immunity to the Ravenous against the Doctor. (AUDIO: The Odds Against)

The Five Edit

The Five commented on Volstrom's new nose shortly after her regeneration. (AUDIO: The Side of the Angels) The Five boasted he was a formidable opponent who was capable of killing everyone even when he was incarcerated within the Eleven when he had been caught by the Time Lords. The Eleven rebuked him for giving the game away. (AUDIO: Stop the Clock)

The Six Edit

The Six was extremely violent and also very unstable. He would often try to get his future incarnations to butcher their way through a situation, regardless of whether the victims could be of use. (AUDIO: The Eleven, Companion Piece)

When the Twelve tapped into her old personalities, the Six threatened her and the Doctor. The Twelve made her old incarnation apologise, and described him as a "horrible little man", while the Doctor said him to be a psychopath. (AUDIO: Planet of the Ogrons)

When Liv called the Nine a psychopath, he corrected her, saying that he was a kleptomaniac, and the psychopath was "three regenerations back".

Angered by River Song's plan of escaping, the Nine considered letting the Six "off the leash". He found the Nine's torture of River, Liv, Helen, Charley and Bliss to be "fun". (AUDIO: Companion Piece)

The Seven Edit

The Seven was known for being rude and abrasive. Indeed, the Nine thought that him congratulating the Eleven was rare. He was also the more scientifically inclined incarnation. He was used by the Eleven to portray a scientific advisor. (AUDIO: World of Damnation, Sweet Salvation)

When the Nine was aiming for kidnapping all of the Doctor's companions, River Song told him to retrieve Katarina's dead body, as that would be the only way to get a "complete collection". In fact, her body was being guarded by a younger version of River, who confronted the Time Lord, giving the older River a chance at escaping. It was the Seven who realised her plan and warned his future self to go back to the TARDIS. (AUDIO: Companion Piece)

The Eight Edit

The Eight (The Doomsday Chronometer)

The Eight. (AUDIO: The Doomsday Chronometer)

The Eight was an aberration compared to his other incarnations, attempting to be a "good man". Using meditation, he was able to suppress the voices of his previous incarnations. He became involved with the Time Lords' (and his) future, attempting to stop the Eighth Doctor from assembling the Doomsday Chronometer.

Living as Father Octavian Edit

Posing as "Father Octavian", he linked minds with the Doctor and "Sister Cantica" to stop the Clocksmith. After he was killed by the Clocksmith, the Eight retreated into the Doctor's TARDIS and regenerated. When the regeneration occurred, he heard the voices of his previous selves, who urged him to regenerate and also taunted him for not being one of them, while the Six wanted to return so he could kill people again. (AUDIO: The Eighth Piece / The Doomsday Chronometer)

Legacy Edit

While the Nine was being chased by the Chancellery Guard, the Eight suggested to him that he surrender, a suggestion quickly shut down by their current incarnation. (AUDIO: Companion Piece)

As a thriving persona inside the Eleven's consciousness, he successfully took control of his physical body and told the Doctor about Padrac's plans to use the Resonance Engine as a means to amplify Caleera's powers. (AUDIO: Stop the Clock)

When the Eleven acted to undermine the Nine's plan to use the Ravenous to kill the Doctor, Liv and Helen, the Eight assumed that he had "seen the light", but the Eleven coldly corrected his predecessor that he was only sparing them now in order to deliver a more devastating blow later. (AUDIO: The Odds Against)

While the Twelve discussed her previous selves with the Doctor, who referred to the previous personas as "a mad stew of voices and personalities" who were all "mad and homicidal", she thought the Doctor was being unfair on the Eight, whom she described as "sweetness itself". The Doctor then conceded, and described him as "the exception that proved the rule". (AUDIO: Planet of the Ogrons)

The Nine Edit

The Nine (The Odds Against)

The Nine. (AUDIO: The Odds Against)

The Nine was notably known for his kleptomania, a trait noted both by himself (AUDIO: Companion Piece) and the Eighth Doctor. (AUDIO: Planet of the Ogrons)

The Crucible of Souls Edit

After regenerating, the Nine initially claimed to be a new incarnation of the Doctor to Helen Sinclair and Liv Chenka. Rather than trying to be a "good man" like his predecessor, the Nine was motivated by kleptomanic greed. Helen and Liv helped him to rob the archive on Gallifrey, but he abandoned Liv when she became suspicious of his erratic and condescending behaviour. He took Helen hostage and brought her to the Crucible of Souls. He attempted to use the Crucible to gain immortality and exorcise his previous incarnations. After being thwarted by the Eighth Doctor, the Nine stole the Clocksmith's TARDIS and ran away. (AUDIO: The Crucible of Souls)

A collection of companions Edit

While piloting the Clocksmith's TARDIS, the Nine ran into River Song, whom he kidnapped. He then decided to get a complete collection of the Doctor's companions, torturing River in order to find out their names and locations. After collecting them, they were placed in a prison. However, River was able to trick the Nine into gathering Liv, Helen, Charley and Bliss in one cell, before she manipulated the Nine into trying to acquire Katarina's corpse after River's own past self retrieved Katarina's body, River knowing that it would take time for the Nine to retrieve Katarina while playing on his ego to convince him to acquire a "rare" specimen for his collection. Using Liv's experience of technology, Helen's experience with codes, Bliss' knowledge of computer science, and Charley's nature as a temporal paradox, they were able to take control of the Nine's drones and escape their prison. Although the Nine returned with Katarina's corpse and nearly recaptured the women, his attempt to psychically link with Katarina's corpse to ascertain her identity caused Katarina's remaining mental activity to disrupt the Nine's own mental focus, allowing the women to defeat him. While River took the other companions home, Liv and Helen remained to be rescued by the Doctor, leaving the Nine in one of the cells in the prison. (AUDIO: Companion Piece)

The Ravenous Edit

Still stuck at his own prison, he was caught by the Ravenous. Upon learning that the Ravenous couldn't eat him as his condition made his regenerative energy unappealing, the Nine attempted to use this information to set a trap for the Eighth Doctor, Liv and Helen. However, this trap was rejected by the Eleven as a foolish idea, as he perceived the Nine as having wasted such a useful opportunity to exploit his immunity to the Ravenous for a more long-term agenda. (AUDIO: The Odds Against)

Legacy Edit

The Twelve used the Nine's expertise to break into a Dalek base. (AUDIO: Planet of the Ogrons)

The Ten Edit

Biography Edit

The Ten was known for his skills in hypnotism. He once killed a squad of Gallifreyan soldiers on Dalgar by hypnotising the first officer to kill the commander, then the second officer to the first officer, and so on. The Ten let Tessno survive the incident so that she could tell Gallifrey about what he had done. (AUDIO: Stop the Clock)

Legacy Edit

The Ten's hypnotic abilities were strong enough to allow his successor to use a trick young students used to hide from their tutors which were strong enough to resist detection by the Time Lords to escape custody. (AUDIO: The Eleven)

The Eleven Edit

Imprisonment and escape Edit

The Eleven was originally captured by the Seventh Doctor (AUDIO: The Eleven) and Rasmus (AUDIO: Desperate Measures) and imprisoned on Gallifrey. Later he managed to escape and steal a TARDIS. The Eighth Doctor was brought in to find him. The Eleven installed himself as Lord President by an ancient edict, as he created a state of emergency while the Lord President was off-world. He used the Sash of Rassilon to freeze the Time Lords. (AUDIO: The Eleven)

Affairs with the Doom Coalition Edit

The Eleven hired Fortuna and Cleaver to bring the Doctor to him. (AUDIO: The Galileo Trap)

The Eleven found the prototype stellar manipulator and planned to use the death of a Time Lord to activate it and destroy the solar system. He captured the Doctor for these means. The Eleven's plans were prevented by an unknown force, and the Doctor's sonic screwdriver signalled for his TARDIS to land nearby, allowing him to escape. (AUDIO: The Satanic Mill)

The Eleven was once interviewed by Caleera for the archives, as he knew she was special. He convinced her to amplify her powers for his plans. (AUDIO: Scenes From Her Life) He then came to Syra as part of his plans with Caleera. He planned a trap in the mines to kill the Doctor. He also tried to kill Liv in the mines, but River Song stopped him. He wanted to use Caleera to destroy planets. (AUDIO: The Sonomancer) He sabotaged Livia's TARDIS before he went to the Crucible of Souls and found out that Veklin had abandoned it. (AUDIO: Songs of Love)

The Eleven later followed the Doctor and his companions to 1970s New York to track Ollistra and destroy the remaining Time Lords who were against Padrac's plans. There, he met the Monk and found out about the alliance of Ollistra and the Weeping Angels. He later manipulated the Monk and the Weeping Angels to do his bidding, helped by the Monk's desire to save his own life and used the latter to take the Time Lords who were hiding in New York as hostages. After a heated argument, he pushed Ollistra from the top of the building and fought the Doctor. Then, it was revealed that Padrac was just using the Eleven as a pawn, causing a commotion between his past incarnations. This pushed the Eleven to use his Time Ring to go back to Gallifrey and see the truth. The Doctor used this as his chance to follow him to Gallifrey. (AUDIO: The Side of the Angels)

The Eleven later found out that he could not enter the Capitol, and was found by Tessno outside the city. The latter almost killed him due to a personal grudge, but the Doctor stopped her from doing so. The Eleven was later brought in to the headquarters of the Opposition. Tessno was asked to lock him inside a room, where he provoked Tessno by using her grudge against her. Tessno released the Eleven to challenge him, but he killed her instead and escaped. He later brought Helen as a hostage and rode a Battle TARDIS to counter the plan of the Doctor to disguise as the Eleven to infiltrate Padrac's headquarters. When Caleera gave Helen the power of the Sonomancer, he was held down by Helen as the latter used the Battle TARDIS to destroy the Resonance Engine. (AUDIO: Stop the Clock)

Running from the Ravenous Edit

The Eleven and Helen on Rykerzon

The Battle TARDIS crashlanded on Rykerzon, and Helen and the Eleven were taken as prisoners. During that time, Helen cared for the Eleven and tried to help him control his condition, suppress the voices of his other incarnations. The Eleven pretended to be receptive, even calling Helen his "saviour", but it was all an act, since he wanted to use her new abilities from the Sonomancer in his plans, and link her with the psychic spider. When the Eighth Doctor and Liv arrived looking for Helen, she was thrilled to see them again, despite the Doctor being sceptical of her. Eventually, the Eleven joined with the Kandyman to take over Colony 23, a plan which was then stopped by the Doctor, Liv and Helen. He got away and became terrified of the Ravenous' arrival, something he saw whilst being linked to the psychic spider. (AUDIOWorld of DamnationSweet Salvation)

The Eleven and the Doctor in Jaxa's TARDIS

The Eleven, the Eighth Doctor and one Ravenous in Jaxa's TARDIS. (AUDIO: Seizure)

The Eleven was able to kill Jaxa and steal her TARDIS, but the ship was somehow attacked by one of the Ravenous, forcing him to send a distress call to the Doctor. When the Doctor traced the call back to its source, the Eleven explained what was on Jaxa's ship, but subsequently stole the Doctor's TARDIS while the Doctor and Helen were trying to save the trapped Liv from the Ravenous, leaving them on Jaxa's dying TARDIS. (AUDIO: Seizure)

However, the Eleven was forced to return for the Doctor when he realized that he couldn't outrun the Ravenous on his own, (AUDIO: Deeptime Frontier) even helping to rescue Liv and Helen from the space station where they were being held captive by the Nine. (AUDIO: Companion Piece) After tracking the legends of the Ravenous to determine where they were previously defeated, (AUDIO: L.E.G.E.N.D.) the Eleven discovered that the monastery that was allegedly the place where they were trapped was actually part of a trap set by the Nine, who had learned that their regenerative dissonance made them uniquely immune to the Ravenous, as it made their regenerative energy unpalatable. However, the Eleven was disgusted with the Nine for wasting this knowledge of their immunity to the Ravenous on such a petty attack on the Doctor, forcing the Nine to retreat while he convinced the Ravenous to let him allegedly "banish" them from this dimension. Having also convinced his other selves to pretend that they had been drained away by an attack from the Ravenous, the Eleven intended to remain with the Doctor, Liv and Helen until he was ready to unleash the Ravenous on the universe once again to achieve his full revenge on his enemies in this universe. (AUDIO: The Odds Against)

The Twelve Edit

The Twelve. (AUDIO: Planet of the Ogrons)

The Eleven later regenerated into a female body. The Twelve had a much better control of the incarnations within her mind, due to a neural inhibitor given to her by the Time Lords, although she also considered herself as possessing the firm hand necessary to keep them all in line even without the chip. She was assigned on a mission by the High Council to help the Eighth Doctor investigate the origins of an Ogron which declared itself to also be the Doctor.

During this time, she proved her control over her previous selves by summoning the Nine's personality when she and the Doctor needed to break into the Daleks' base. (AUDIO: Planet of the Ogrons)

Eighth Doctor, Bliss and the Twelve as prisoners

The Eighth Doctor, Bliss and the Twelve are held prisoners by the Daleks. (AUDIO: In the Garden of Death)

She was captured by the Daleks, along with the Doctor and Bliss and taken to a facility with her memory suppressed. She was given the name "Pi Gamma" by Bliss. Without her neural inhibitor, she had to work harder to keep her other incarnations suppressed. She attempted to break out of the facility, with her previous incarnations prodding and goading her, forcing her to develop a means of disrupting the transmat technology using the cybernetic components of another prisoner. (AUDIO: In the Garden of Death)

After the encounter with the Daleks on Uzmal, Cardinal Ollistra had the Twelve put into stasis. (AUDIO: Jonah)

Behind the scenes Edit

As of June 2019, no name has been given in-narrative for this Time Lord in general (only for each of their incarnations). However, John Dorney, who regularly wrote stories featuring the character, has expressed fondness for the name "the Collective".[1]
