You couldn’t pronounce it if he told you—which he won’t. His name is a secret (and something he might have forgotten; and also apparently something super impressive and world-changing), but he calls himself The Doctor. 
▸ known as The Eleventh Doctor to fans, because he is on his eleventh regeneration.

Series: Doctor Who

Canon Point: Post the 2011 Christmas special -- The Doctor, the Widow, and the Wardrobe
Basically, he has reunited with his close friends just in time for Christmas.

Age: Appears to be 29 / claims to be over 1100 years old (stating that he is 1103 in The Impossible Astronaut) / probably doesn't actually know how old he really is.

"The thing I keep banging on about is that he doesn't know what age he is. He's lying. How could he know, unless he's marking it on a wall? He could be 8,000 years old, he could be a million. He has no clue. The calendar will give him no clues." -- Steven Moffat, current Doctor Who show-runner.

Height: 180cm/5'11"ft

Average. He's relatively tall and lanky, but there's no fat or muscle to be seen, really.

Medical Info: Healthy! Also, is an alien from the planet Gallifrey and a Time Lord.
Meaning he has:
▸ an expanded ribcage and expanded lungs
▸ two (2) hearts (that beat at approximately 170 beats per minute. Heart one sends blood to his organs and brain; heart two sends blood to his muscles. He needs both in working order to survive)
▸ an internal body temperature of 15°C/59°F (compared to the human temperature of 37°C/98°F)
▸ a "respiratory bypass system" that allows him to survive strangulation
▸ an advanced brain


Hair: Brown, fluffy, ridiculous, and ridiculously cool

Physical traits: The Doctor may be an alien, but he looks human (or rather, humans look Time Lord. The Doctor's race came first). At about 5'11", he's relatively tall and lanky. The most striking thing about him is his wardrobe. From the tweed, to the braces, to the suspenders, to the bow tie -- he looks more like a mad, English professor than an alien. Alternatively, he appears to be a space hipster.  In general, he gives off a very dorky vibe. While not incredibly strong physically, he is quite the runner. If you catch him off guard, you might see just how old and worn he is.

What's Okay To Mention Around Him:   E V E R Y T H I N G

▸ Time Lord Telepathy — he can read people's thoughts, but only when he wants to. He can also look into people's memories if he touches them. (This works both ways, though. If he picks your brain, you can pick his.)
▸ Communication with all the things — The Doctor speaks, well, everything. Atraxi, French, Spanish, Gallifreyan, baby.
▸ Psychic Headbutt — he can transfer massive amounts of information to another person instantaneously, all via headbutt.
▸ Resistance to Timey Wimey Shenanigans — Basically, because he's a Time Lord, any temporal anomalies (think people being erased from existence, or a place that is stuck in a time loop a la Groundhog Day or that one Supernatural episode where Sam lives the same Tuesday over and over again) do not affect him! In other words, he'd remember the erased person, or be aware of the repeating Tuesday right off the bat.
▸ Memory Wiping — similar to Time Lord Telepathy, he can alter or erase another person's memories altogether.
▸ Telepathic Messages — he can leave messages on Psychic Paper (see Psychic Paper below).
▸ Regeneration — The Doctor doesn't die when fatally wounded, he regenerates -- meaning he transforms into a new version of himself. This version gets a new actor face, an altered personality, and new tastes -- in the food sense, and in the general sense.
▸ Sherlock Holmes Level Intelligence — he can analyze people in the same way Sherlock Holmes does. For example, he once reconstructed a man's entire past just by looking at his furniture arrangement. He's also just plain smart. When you live for over a thousand years, you learn a few things.
▸ Eidetic Memory — he has a photographic memory.

Other: There are several items/gadgets that are always on the Doctor's person or in the vicinity. They are:
▸ The TARDIS — his spaceship and time machine.
▸ The TARDIS Key — the key to the aforementioned spaceship and time machine.
▸ His Sonic Screwdriver — a small, silver device that looks absolutely nothing like a screwdriver. The Doctor's own invention, it is designed with self-defense in mind, not destruction. It can do a number of things (from scanning lifeforms to causing small explosions), and can be activated telepathically by the Doctor. As a side note, it doesn't work on wood
▸ Psychic Paper — it appears to be a blank, white card, although it posses special properties that make it much more than that. When shown to a person, it will usually induce them to see whatever the user wishes them to see printed on it.


Notes for Psychics: IF YOU READ HIS MIND YOUR HEAD WILL EXPLODE. No, really. His thoughts are above the average being's, and he thinks, for lack of a better word, fast. He's got at least a 1000 years of data on his hard-drive, so attempting to access that data will likely have serious repercussions. Also, the Doctor is very good at protecting his mind -- so you probably can't read his thoughts regardless. Terribly sorry about that!

Can I shapeshift/bodyswap/spit at/step on/etc?: Sounds like funtimes! Just let me know if you want to shapeshift, bodyswap, or anything like that in advance!

Hugging/kissing/other non-violent physical contact: GO FOR IT. HE'S A HUGGER. Anything past that, the Doctor will probably not reciprocate, though. He's secretly an awkward eight-year-old boy who knows not where to put his hands. Also, he's sort of himself, so. Yeah. Sexytimes are not a thing that will happen.

Maim/Murder/Death: Maiming is a thing we can talk about, but thanks to Regeneration, murder/death is a no-no, alas. Feel free to talk to me about it on plurk/aim/gchat.

Cooking: Surprisingly enough, the Doctor is an excellent cook! Even if his taste buds are a bit odd.

Backtagging: Forever and always! I might forget, though, so just poke me if I do!

: I really love threadhopping. I just want to do it. All. The. Time. So please feel free to threadhop/jack/steal ect.

: Go ahead!

Offensive subjects: Nothing I can think of! I'd prefer it if no nsfw images/icons were linked/used, though!
