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.


Martha Jones is a new character, who is introduced in this story. Several of the characters introduced in this story are members of her family.
