Talk about it here.

You may wish to consult The One for other, similarly-named pages.

The One was the main alias used by the first incarnation of a Renegade Time Lord who suffered from regenerative dissonance.


The One studied at the Time Lord Academy and earnt a quintuple first across a range of subjects. He 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 prompting 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)

Behind the scenes[]

  • The script of Dark Universe describes the One as a "fussy old archivist, pedantic and knowledgeable on many Gallifreyan secrets".
