Other Guides to this Story


The tenth Doctor wears a brown pinstripe suit with trainers. He is much more jovial and good-humoured than his ninth incarnation, appearing to have largely recovered from the mental scars of the Time War. He does, however, have a hard edge to his personality, being the sort of man who doesn't give second chances. In Doomsday he had to leave his companion Rose Tyler in an parallel timeline, and he is still coming to terms with her loss.


Donna Noble is a new character, introduced in this story.
