When is the Doctor?
The Fifth Doctor
To travel through time and space, see the galaxy’s sights and help people in need.
The Doctor is far more emotionally reserved than his previous incarnations, as well as far more empathic to his companions. Although he is easily frustrated and annoyed by irrational or illogical actions, he attempts to understand other points of view and is far more willing to work with others towards a common goal. He is willing to sacrifice his own life – all of them – to save those of his friends.
The Fifth Doctor might be the oldest to date, but he is also the youngest in appearance; handsome, sprightly and youthful. After a difficult regeneration, he quickly settled into the life of the curious time traveller, his TARDIS – as unreliable as ever, perhaps more so – taking him to interesting places just in the nick of time.
