The competition was announced in July 2005, and received 43,920 entries. These were judged by Blue Peter editor Richard Marson, presenter Gethin Jones, Doctor Who producer Russell T Davies and Tenth Doctor David Tennant. The first prize for the competition was to have the monster appear in an episode of Doctor Who. Tennant announced the winner on Blue Peter on 17 August 2005. Conditions of the competition meant that the monster had to be able to be made from prosthetics and not require CGI.
Russell T Davies revealed on the Doctor Who Confidential episode "New World of Who" that Grantham imagined the Abzorbaloff to be the size of a double-decker bus, so was initially disappointed to see the final size of his creation. However, Grantham's design had not included size specifications (though the remains of the monster's victims on and within his body hinted at his being huge) and a larger size would not have fit the criteria of the competition unless the monster were superimposed on footage later on a larger scale. Ultimately, CGI was used for some shots of the talking faces on the Abzorbaloff.
Appearing in the episode "Love & Monsters", the Abzorbaloff, played by Peter Kay, was a creature that absorbed other living beings into his body with a simple touch. In doing so, the Abzorbaloff made his victims part of himself, adding their memories and knowledge to his own. The victims retain their identity and consciousness for at least several weeks after absorption, during which time their faces can be seen embedded in his flesh, but eventually, those too are eliminated as they are fully absorbed. During this period, however, the absorption process works both ways - in becoming part of the Abzorbaloff, they are able to access his thoughts, just as he is able to access theirs. To restrain his absorption ability, the Abzorbaloff requires the use of a "limitation field", which limits absorption to physical contact. The Abzorbaloff hails from Clom, the sister planet to Raxacoricofallapatorius, homeworld of the criminal Slitheen clan. Despite a passing resemblance to them, the Abzorbaloff spoke of the Raxacoricofallapatorians with contempt.
Seeking to absorb the Doctor and his hundreds of years of experience, the Abzorbaloff adopted a human disguise as "Victor Kennedy", his limitation field generated by the ornate cane he wielded. Taking charge of "LINDA" (London Investigation 'N' Detective Agency), a small group of ordinary people who followed the exploits of the Doctor, the Abzorbaloff steadily absorbed their numbers one by one, until only Elton Pope remained. Pursuing Pope through the back streets of London, the Abzorbaloff was confronted by the Doctor, who stirred the absorbed victims to fight against the monster. Pulling the Abzorbaloff's body in different directions, the victims made him drop his cane, which Elton snapped in two, destroying the limitation field and causing the Abzorbaloff's absorption power to run out of control. His body collapsed into liquid and was itself absorbed by the Earth.
"Abzorbaloff" is not the actual name of the species, but was coined independently by Elton Pope and the Doctor. The monster was seen to approve of the term, however. Other names thrown at him by the Doctor and Elton included "Abzorbatron", "Abzorbaling", "Abzorbatrix" and "Abzorbaclon".
It was never explained how the Abzorbaloff species (if there is one) was able to survive without the technology that allowed the limitation field, as presumably there must have been a time when the species, having just begun a civilization, did not have said technology. The Doctor Who website refers to Slitheen distant cousins by the name of "Absorvalovian Rebels" in one of Captain Jack's Monster Files.
The Abzorbaloff's homeworld is referenced in The Stolen Earth, when the Doctor is reading the names of the stolen planet, he states, "Clom? Who'd want Clom?" for obvious reasons.
At the end of the story, the Animus's true form was revealed, as resembling an octopus with some arachnid features. The First Doctor, Ian, Barbara and Vicki help the Menoptra to destroy the Animus using the Menoptra's secret weapon, the Isop-tope. After that, it is assumed that natives of Vortis managed to resolve their differences peacefully.
The Animus has returned or been mentioned in several spin-off stories. In the Missing Adventure Twilight of the Gods by Christopher Bulis, the Second Doctor, Jamie and Victoria return to Vortis and encounter a seed of the Animus which had survived. The New Adventure All-Consuming Fire by Andy Lane identified the Animus with the Great Old One Lloigor from H. P. Lovecraft's Cthulhu Mythos. Finally, an article by Russell T Davies in the Doctor Who Annual 2006 says that the "Greater Animus perished" in the Time War, "and its Carsenome (sic) Walls fell into dust." These references, like the rest of the spin-off media, are of open to interpretation (see Whoniverse#Inclusion and canonicity).
Azal was the Dæmon from the planet Dæmos that terrorised Devil's End in the Third Doctor story The Dæmons. Summoned by the Master, Azal had a gargoyle, by the name of Bok, as a servant. Azal landed on Earth over a million years ago and did help in the development of mankind. Azal was awakened after an archaeological professor, Professor Horner, who was digging out the cave at Devil's Hump that was a part of Azal's ship. Azal created a heat barrier around Devil's End. Azal had contact with the Master though the ceremony with the Master's coven. The Master wanted Azal's power, but he wanted to give it to the Doctor, but the Doctor refused. Then Azal decided to give the Master his power and destroy the Doctor. Jo Grant told Azal to kill her instead. Azal, not understanding her willingness to give her own life for someone else's caused Azal's power to turn against him and destroyed himself and his ship at the dig at Devil's Hump was destroyed. Things at Devil's End returned to normal, the heat barrier gone and Bok is a normal statue again.
Baltazar, Scourge of the Galaxy, is a space pirate in the animated Tenth Doctor serial, The Infinite Quest, featured as part of the second series of Totally Doctor Who in 2007, voiced by Anthony Head. Using enhanced rust, the Doctor destroyed the ship Baltazar had built, Baltazar having destroyed the entire Earth defence. With his space piracy, cybernetics, robot parrot, and desire to crush planets into precious gems, Baltazar bears a striking resemblance to The Captain, a character from the Fourth Doctor adventure, The Pirate Planet. In Episode One of The Infinite Quest, The Doctor tells Martha Jones Baltazar destroyed a planet in the 40th century. Also, Baltazar crafted the ship he travelled in, proudly telling the time travellers he built it over numerous decades. At the end of Episode One, Baltazar was meant to end up on a prison planet, The Doctor predicted. In Episode Two, Caw took the TARDIS to his homeworld, Pharos. Caw claimed Baltazar had ended up on a prison planet. He gave Martha Jones a medallion, and the Doctor part of a black box recorder, which the Doctor said would eventually lead them to "The Infinite", a mythical ship that was made in the "Dark Times", as the Doctor put it. But when the TARDIS left, it was revealed Baltazar was hiding behind the TARDIS. He had asked Caw to give the Doctor a tracking device. He laughed, claiming they would find "The Infinite" for them.
Once he discovers The Infinite, he orders Martha to find the hold to find the treasure. After the Doctor rescues Martha, he discovers an illusion showing "what the Heart desires". The Doctor, meanwhile, uses his sonic screwdriver to tear the ship apart. He then orders Squawk to escort him to Volag-Noc where he is imprisoned.
The title "Scourge of the Galaxy" previously belonged to the Macra race before their devolution into beasts.
The Beast claimed that he was the basis of the Devil-figure in all religions and mythologies, (including the Kaled god of war) and originated from before this universe's creation. It is not known whether or not this is true, as the Doctor stated he believed it to be impossible. Exactly what the beast was also remains uncertain; neither the Doctor nor the humans are able to determine its true nature. He had been defeated and trapped beneath the planet by the "Disciples of Light", who had crafted his prison such that if he ever freed himself, the gravitational force would collapse and the planet would be pulled into the black hole, destroying them both.
The Beast was awakened when a human expeditionary force flew their ship through the funnel to land on the planet, hoping to excavate and claim the power source for their Empire. The Beast exhibited the ability to telepathically possess and speak through other beings, in particular the empathic Ood, who became his "Legion of the Beast". He was also able to divine the hidden fears and secrets of those with whom he spoke, unnerving them greatly.
He possessed Toby Zed, a human member of the expedition while leaving his own body, which resembled a horned demon, still chained in the Pit at the heart of Krop Tor. In this way he hoped to escape his prison. However, the Tenth Doctor smashed the power source containing the Beast's prison, causing Krop Tor to be dragged into the black hole and the Beast's original body to burst into flames. At the same time, while fleeing the planet in a rocket with the survivors of the expedition, Toby's possession manifested itself, angrily proclaiming that as long as he was feared, he could never be destroyed. However, Rose Tyler shot out the cockpit window with a bolt gun, causing the possessed Toby to be blown into space towards the black hole.
The Beast claimed that he had many names, among them Abaddon and Satan. It is unknown whether they are the same. Gabriel Woolf, who provided the Beast's voice, also played Sutekh the Destroyer in the 1975 serial Pyramids of Mars, an entity who was also said to have been named Satan.
In the Torchwood episode "End of Days" a similar giant creature named Abaddon is released from the Cardiff spacetime Rift and is referred to as the "son of the great Beast". The Torchwood website alludes to the Beast by asking "Were there other beings like Abaddon? Are they also entombed underneath planets across the universe?".
Max Capricorn, played by George Costigan, appeared in the Tenth Doctor story "Voyage of the Damned". He was the owner of a luxury spaceship cruiseliner company, but was voted out by the other owners of the company and planned to get his revenge by crashing one of his ships into the Earth, killing all life on the planet as well as the 2000 people on board; selling his shares, he would earn enough to retire and see the remainder of the company in prison for mass murder. Due to his advanced age (he had been running his company for more than a hundred years), he had been reduced to a head in a tank, a cyborg dependent on life support (the common prejudice against cyborgs may have played a part in his removal from his company). Astrid Peth stopped his plan by pushing him into the live engine, sacrificing herself in the process. Max was the highest person of authority so control of The Host was his. When Max was killed, control passed to the next person of authority, the Doctor.
Through his vast resources, Chase learned that the seed pods of a Krynoid, an intelligent form of alien plant life, had been found in Antarctica. A collector of rare specimens, Chase became obsessed with obtaining a sample, and successfully acquired one. He allowed the Krynoid to possess one of his henchmen, who began to mutate into a Human-Krynoid hybrid. As the monster grew in size and power, Chase too became possessed by the Krynoid.
Convinced of a future where Krynoids are the dominant life form on Earth, Chase aided the monster in earnest. By this time, the Fourth Doctor and Sarah Jane Smith were trapped on Chase's property. Chase eventually captured Sarah and attempted to kill her by throwing her into a compost shredder. The Doctor stopped him, and the two fought, until Chase fell into the shredder and perished.
He later shot Jenny, the Doctor's daughter.
Matron Cofelia of the Five-Straighten, Classabindi Nursery Fleet, Intergalactic Class was charged with the task of looking after the Adipose babies after their breeding planet became unfit for use in "Partners in Crime". Disguised as a human named Miss Foster, a play on "foster mother", she used the Adipose tablets to galvanize human fats into living creatures, the Adipose, despite it being illegal to use Level 5 planets for such purposes. She didn't tell the Adipose where they came from. After the Adipose babies were adopted, Cofelia was no longer needed and the Adiposian First Family decided to dispose of their accomplice, so the tractor beam used to carry Cofelia was shut off, and she fell to her death. She was portrayed by Sarah Lancashire. She owns a sonic pen which the Doctor describes as "sleek". It is stated the Sonic Pen has the Sonic Screwdriver's function, and the two work identically.
The Collector, played by Henry Woolf, as seen in The Sun Makers (1977) was the finance-obsessed Usurian overlord of the humans on Pluto. In his humanoid form, he was diminutive in stature, bald with bushy eyebrows and was wheelchair-bound. He spoke with a squeaky voice and was receptive to the praises of his underling Gatherer Hade. He reverted to his natural seaweed-like state in shock after he was trapped inside his wheelchair when the Doctor collapsed his economy amidst a revolution.
At the time, Brigadier Lethbridge-Stewart had been called out of retirement to assist UNIT against Morgaine's invasion. Taking a box of silver bullets meant for combating werewolves from UNIT stores, he loaded a revolver with them. The Destroyer taunted the elderly Brigadier for being the best Earth could offer as its champion; the Brigadier's response was to fire the silver bullets into the demon. The building the Destroyer was in subsequently exploded in a burst of magical energy, and presumably the creature was destroyed with it.
The design for the Destroyer was based on theatrical devil's mask, modified so that an actor could speak through it. The cloak that covered its chainmail armour disguised the mechanical parts needed for the costume's special effects. Script writer Ben Aaronovitch originally intended the Destroyer to start off as a businessman who gradually became more demonic as he fell under Morgaine's spell, but this was time-consuming and expensive, so he stayed in one form throughout.
Little is known about the Editor, except that he managed the operations of Satellite 5 from Floor 500, unseen and unknown to the rank-and-file journalists who packaged and broadcast the news over six hundred channels. He also monitored the thoughts of all those connected to the archives of the station via chips implanted into people's heads, which were required to access the computer systems of the 2001st century. Through these implants, the Editor was able to instantly know whatever the person connected knew, and was even able to sense when a record was fictional or not, or that there was something out of place with a particular individual before a security check confirmed it.
The Editor was a smooth and sinister individual in the mould of an evil genius, but was not the true controller of the station. He reported to the monstrous slug-like extraterrestrial known as the Jagrafess. The Editor claimed that he represented a consortium of interstellar banks whose intent was to subtly control the Empire by means of manipulating the news. In the ninety years since Satellite 5 had been established, the social, economic and technological development of the human race had been retarded, making them inward looking and xenophobic. When the Ninth Doctor investigated this, he and Rose were captured by the Editor.
Initially, the Editor was both intrigued and frustrated at the fact that records of their existence did not seem to exist in the archives. However, because the Doctor's new companion Adam had accessed the archives of the Satellite, the Editor acquired the knowledge that the Doctor was a Time Lord and had a TARDIS capable of time travel.
Before he could gain the Doctor's secrets or claim the TARDIS, however, a human journalist named Cathica (who had been following the Doctor's investigation) reversed the environmental controls of Floor 500 that had been kept at an icy temperature vital for keeping the Jagrafess alive. Overheating, the Jagrafess exploded, apparently taking the Editor with him.
Eldrad was a Kastrian who saved his planet from solar winds, but then took down the barriers he created because the people wouldn't follow him. They sentenced him to destruction in an obliteration capsule, but his hand survived and ended up in a quarry on Earth. He regenerated himself by entering the nuclear reactor of a Power Station and came out as a thin Female Alien with violet skin covered in crystals, basing his form off his contact with Sarah Jane. Eldrad is a Silcon based lifeform from the planet Kastria.
Eve was an android resembling a woman built by Hr'oln, last of the Cirranins. She was built to prevent the extinction of races like the Cirranins, but did this by rather unorthodox means. She put Hr'oln and other last ones in suspended animation, then put all but Hr'oln in MOTLO (Museum Of The Last Ones). However, she and a member of the Earth team named Frank were secretly cloning the creatures and selling them off to the highest bidder. The Doctor and Martha then arrived at the museum, and investigated the poaching. After Eve captured the Doctor, last of the Time Lords, Martha freed him, but accidentally teleported the Earth creatures back to Earth. During the ensuing chaos, Eve hatched upon a plan to get the cloned dodos to lay bomb eggs, with sabretooth cats and Megalosauri attacking people to keep them off the scent, so that she could stop having to note down every Earth extinction. She planned to destroy every planet in the universe this way. But when the Doctor pointed out this would be impossible, she tried to shoot him. Unfortunately for her, the gun backfired, killing her and revealing that she was an android. After her plans had been stopped, and Hr'oln was freed, Hr'oln promised to rebuild her. She is immune to psychic paper. As a novel character, her canonicity is unclear.
Ultimately, when trying to gain the immortality of the Time Lords, they pursued the last Time Lord: the Tenth Doctor, who chose to alter his biodata to become a human schoolteacher in England, 1913 until their lifespans expired. When he was finally tracked down in human form, the Family possessed the forms of four humans; Mr. Clark, a farmer, Jeremy Baines, a school prefect, Lucy Cartwright, a small girl holding a balloon and Jenny, a maid at the school. The original souls of the beings were killed, the original bodies only existing as vessels for the Family, and the Family attacked first a village dance and then the school to claim the Doctor. The Family's starship was eventually destroyed by the Doctor once his human persona was convinced to reassume his Time Lord configuration. It was learnt at this point why the Doctor chose to run from the Family; not out of fear but rather as an act of mercy; something the Doctor had now run out of. Each of the Family were trapped for all of time, an irony considering that they sought immortality. "Father of Mine" was tied up in unbreakable chains forged from dwarf star metal, "Mother of Mine" was trapped on the event horizon of a black hole, "Son of Mine" was frozen in time and dressed as a Scarecrow, left in the fields to watch over England as its protector, and "Sister of Mine" was trapped inside every mirror and unable to leave, still able to be glimpsed fleetingly by humans. "Son of Mine" mentions that the Doctor visits the sister once every year, and he wishes that the Doctor may forgive her in time.
In the late 20th century, the Fendahl skull was discovered in Kenya by a team of anthropologists under the leadership of one Dr. Fendelman. Fendelman brought the skull to an English research facility at Fetch Priory, near the village of Fetchborough. The Priory was built on a time fissure, causing psychic ability in some nearby residents. In the Priory, Fendelman and his fellow researchers Thea Ransome, Adam Colby and Maximillian Stael performed experiments on the skull, attempting to unlock its secrets. Fendelman used a crude time scanner to examine the skull, a dangerous activity which drew the attention of the Fourth Doctor. Stael attempted to capture the power of the Fendahl for himself by means of black magic rituals, performed with the aid of a local coven, but he, Fendelman and Ransome were all being used by the Fendahl to recreate itself.
The Fendahl was a gestalt creature with multiple aspects. Thea Ransome was transformed into the Fendahl Core, a humanoid female with golden skin and blank, staring eyes. Several of the cult members became slug-like creatures called Fendahleen. All the aspects of the Fendahl had powerful psychotelekinetic ability, and can control the muscles of human victims. The Fendahleen were vulnerable to sodium chloride, which altered the creatures' conductivity and destroyed their electrical balance.
In its final form, the Fendahl would consist of the Core and twelve Fendahleen; however, the Doctor was able to prevent the creature from reaching its full manifestation. He rigged Fendelman's time scanner to implode, destroying the Core and the Fendahleen. He also removed the skull, planning to drop it into a star about to go supernova.
The Fendahl has also appeared in the Eighth Doctor Adventures novel The Taking of Planet 5 by Simon Bucher-Jones and Mark Clapham, as well as in the Kaldor City series of audio plays and the Time Hunter novella Deus Le Volt by Jon de Burgh Miller.
However, Fenric was still able to manipulate human minds and events through time and space. He set up pawns, bloodlines of families that were under his control and he could use, "The Curse of Fenric" stretching down through generations. These people were known as the "Wolves of Fenric", and their true purpose was unknown even to them. He also had the power to summon Haemovores, vampires which were to be the evolutionary destiny of mankind in a possible far future. The haemovores were strong enough to be able to weld metal with their bare hands, and were also immune to bullets. They could be countered, however, with a psychic barrier caused by faith.
Eventually, the flask was brought to a British Army base in Northumberland in 1942, where several Wolves, including the Doctor's companion Ace, were manipulated into freeing Fenric from his flask. He also summoned the Ancient One, the last of the Haemovores from the future, in an attempt to poison the world with a deadly chemical toxin. Fenric then revealed that he had manipulated the Seventh Doctor's life upon several occasions as part of his game, including creating the time storm that originally took Ace to Iceworld and influencing the Cybermen in their attempts to gain the power of the Nemesis statue. Eventually, the Doctor convinced the Ancient One to turn on Fenric; the Ancient One then destroyed Fenric and himself with the same toxin.
In Norse mythology, Fenric is another name for Fenrisulfr (more commonly known simply as "Fenrir" or "the Fenris wolf"), the monstrous wolf that will devour Odin during Ragnarök. The Virgin New Adventures novel All-Consuming Fire by Andy Lane also equates Fenric with the Cthulhu Mythos entity Hastur the Unspeakable. As with all spin-off media, the canonicity of this is open to interpretation.
Mr Finch was an alias for Brother Lassar, the leader of a group of Krillitanes. His first and only appearance to date was in the 2006 series episode "School Reunion", in which he was portrayed by Anthony Head. His first name of "Lucas" is given on the Deffry Vale School website. According to an on-line interview with Head, Finch's original name in the script was "Hector", but this had to be changed when a check found a real headmaster named "Hector Finch". He is also aware of the Time War and the Time Lords' near-extinction.
The Krillitanes had taken human characteristics to infiltrate the Deffry Vale comprehensive school. Taking the position of headmaster, Finch gradually replaced the staff members with disguised Krillitanes and then enacted a series of reforms, including specialised programmes of study and free, but compulsory, school dinners. The dinners were laced with Krillitane oil, which was designed to enhance the intelligence of the pupils in a bid to use them to decode the Skasis Paradigm, which would give the Krillitanes control over the structure of reality. The Krillitanes could not use the oil themselves because their constantly changing morphology had rendered it toxic to their systems.
The Tenth Doctor and his current companions investigated the school, meeting his old companions Sarah Jane Smith and K-9 Mark III. Finch squared off against the Doctor, offering the use of the solved Paradigm and tempting him with the power, but Sarah's urgings helped the Doctor to refuse. In the midst of escaping, K-9 sacrificed itself by using its laser to blow up the barrels of Krillitane oil in the kitchen, showering most of the Krillitanes with it before the kitchen exploded, apparently killing them all. Finch is seen to be unnaffected by the oil (since he had taken permanent human form) but it is unclear if the subsquent kitchen explosion killed him or not.
Florence Finnegan was the name assumed by the Plasmavore, played by Anne Reid, who was hiding from the Judoon in the Royal Hope Hospital in London when it was transported to the Moon in "Smith and Jones". To avoid detection by the Judoon, she sucked the blood out of Mr. Stoker, a consultant working in the hospital. This allows her to assimilate human DNA and register as human on the Judoon scanners. The Doctor later tricks her into sucking his blood, meaning that she registers as non-human, having assimilated non-human blood. The Judoon pick up on this. She attempts to rig a hospital MRI machine to kill all in the hospital (and the half of earth currently facing the moon). The Judoon execute her for the crime of killing an alien princess. The Doctor neutralizes the MRI energy.
See Matron Cofelia.
The Virgin New Adventures novel Conundrum by Steve Lyons reveals that the Gods of Ragnarok created the Land of Fiction. As with all spin-off media, the canonicity of this is open to interpretation. (The Gods also display some similarity with the Osirian race of Sutekh, including the use of Eye of Horus symbol.)
Magnus Greel is the former Minister of Justice of the 51st century Supreme Alliance, responsible for the deaths of 100,000 enemies of the state, earning him the epithet "the Butcher of Brisbane". He appears in the 1977 serial The Talons of Weng-Chiang.
After the Filipino Army defeats the Supreme Alliance at the battle of Reykjavik, Greel flees to 19th century China by means of a time cabinet which utilises zygma beam technology, taking The Peking Homunculus with him. There he is given shelter by a peasant, Li H'sen Chang, who believes Greel to be the god Weng-Chiang. However, the zygma beam has disrupted Greel's DNA, hideously deforming him and requiring him to draw the life essence from others in order to live.
The time cabinet is captured by Imperial soldiers and passed on to an Englishman as a gift, neither of whom knows its true nature. Seeking to recover the cabinet and reverse his condition, Greel and Li pursue it to London, where Li poses as a stage magician. There, they enlist the Tong of the Black Scorpion to obtain victims for Greel's organic distillation chamber, which extracts their essences for him to feed on.
Greel's plans are opposed by the Fourth Doctor, who warns him that using the zygma beam will cause an implosion that will kill thousands. In a battle with the Doctor in which the Peking Homunculus goes berserk and turns on his master, Greel dies from total cellular collapse after being pushed into the distillation chamber.
Other consequences of Greel's time travel are explored in the spin-off Virgin Missing Adventures novel The Shadow of Weng-Chiang by David A. McIntee, in which the Doctor again encounters the Tong of the Black Scorpion. Greel is also mentioned in Simon A. Forward's Eighth Doctor Adventures novel Emotional Chemistry, which is partly set in the 51st century.
While searching for the fourth segment of the Key, Romana discovered that it was disguised as the head of a statue representing the family crest of Grendel's family. After Romana transformed it into its actual crystalline form, the segment was confiscated by Grendel. Grendel did not know of the segment's true nature; his real intent was to use Romana (who resembled the Princess Strella) in a complex plot to seize the throne of Tara from Prince Reynart.
His plans were ultimately defeated by the Doctor. Although Grendel was considered the finest swordsman on Tara, the Doctor managed to duel him to a standstill, and he made his escape by leaping into the moat of Castle Gracht and swimming away.
A cultured and charming villain, Gracht used his breeding to cover a ruthless and cunning personality. He used and discarded people as easily as he would persuade them to do his bidding, and somehow always managed to live to scheme another day. He also appeared in the spin-off short story The Trials of Tara by Paul Cornell, where another attempt to seize the throne of Tara with the help of the salvaged remains of the Kandy Man was foiled by the Seventh Doctor and Benny.
He placed detonation packs around the brain and prepared to detonate. He decided he would go into cargo as this job was over. When his scientist, Dr. Ryder revealed he was a member of Ood group, Friends of the Ood, Halpen killed him by throwing him into the brain. Ood Sigma had led the Doctor and Donna Noble to Halpen but then Sigma claimed he would always help Halpen. It was then that Sigma revealed that he had used the Hair Tonic liquid to dose Halpen with a liquid that turned him into an Ood. Sigma then declared he would look after Halpen.
A report on the Torchwood TV series' fictional Torchwood Institute tie-in website about a motionless Cyberman by some stairs killed by Torchwood security personnel suggests she may have been killed although her ultimate fate has never been definitively revealed. The website also states that Hartman regularly collaborated with Jack Harkness and the other members of Torchwood Three. In Torchwood novel Trace Memory Yvonne is mentioned in Ianto Jones's flashback to when he was working in Torchwood One. However, like all Torchwood and Doctor Who spin-offs in other media, the ultimate canonicity of events described in relation to the TV series remain unclear.
The Jagrafess was the supervisor of the mysterious and sinister Editor on board Satellite 5, a space station that broadcast news across the whole of the Fourth Great and Bountiful Human Empire of the year 200,000. The Editor (who called the Jagrafess "Max" for short) claimed that the Jagrafess had been placed with Satellite 5 some ninety years before by a consortium of interstellar banks. The intent was to use the news broadcasts to subtly manipulate the Empire, retarding its social, economic and technological growth and turning it more inward looking and xenophobic. Control was enhanced by the use of computer chips, installed in every human brain; chips that allowed the users to access the computer systems of the 2001st century, but at the same time allowed the Jagrafess and its cohorts to monitor people's thoughts. In this way, the human race was reduced to slavery without them even realising it.
The environmental systems of Satellite 5 had been configured to vent all heat away from Floor 500, keeping it cold enough for the Jagrafess to survive, attached to the ceiling of the main control room. When the Ninth Doctor, Rose and Adam arrived on board, the Doctor recognised that human development had been deliberately obstructed and began to investigate. Ultimately captured by the Editor and about to be killed by the Jagrafess, the Doctor and Rose were saved by the actions of Cathica, a human journalist, who reversed the environmental systems. The Jagrafess overheated, bloated up and exploded, apparently ending its threat and the scheme to hold back the human race.
The Jagrafess was designed and created by Jean-Claude Deguara, a middle-aged freelance animator from Croydon.
Sharaz Jek was a genius robotocist and partner of businessman Trau Morgus. Together they planned to harvest the rare Spectrox drug on the planet Androzani Minor using androids built by Jek. Morgus, however, "cheaped out" on Jek, supplying him with substandard equipment and Jek was caught in a mud burst on Minor. He was only able to survive by locking himself in a Spectrox baking oven, leaving him hideously disfigured. Jek thereafter bore a pathological hatred for Morgus, believing (quite possibly correctly) that Morgus had provided the faulty equipment deliberately.
When the Doctor and Peri Brown landed on Androzani Minor, they soon became entangled in a three way struggle between Jek's androids, gunrunners and Androzani Major troops. Jek found Peri beautiful and coveted her strongly. When the Doctor and Peri were to be executed by the Major troops, Jek replaced them with realistic androids, and later cared for Peri while the Doctor tried to get an antidote for the disease that the two of them had accidentally contracted.
When Morgus and the leader of the gunrunners, Stotz, arrived at Jek's base, Jek attacked Morgus and killed him, but was himself shot by Stotz. He died in the arms of his Salateen replica robot.
After a malfunction at the first public demonstration of his process, he appears to be young once more. However, the experiment mutates his DNA, activating long dormant characteristics within his genes. He undergoes repeated transformations into a large, insectoid creature, which needs to steal the life energy from other beings in order to revert to a youthful, human form, killing them in the process. His first victim is his partner, Lady Thaw. He attempts to make Martha Jones's sister, Tish, his next victim, but she is saved by Martha and the Doctor.
After going on a rampage, Lazarus is seemingly killed by the machine which effected his transformation, which has been modified by the Doctor. However, he recovers in the ambulance called to remove his body, whereupon he feeds on the medics before seeking sanctuary at Southwark Cathedral. The Doctor, Martha and Tish follow him there. The sisters succeed in luring Lazarus up to the top of the belltower, at which point the Doctor plays the organ at maximum volume, which, in conjunction with the Sonic Screwdriver, resonates the church bell and plays havoc with Lazarus's sonically-manipulated genetic structure, eventually causing him to fall to his death. He then reverts to his aged, human form, his experiment undone.
Paradoxically, the emotionally volatile Ace, then 13 years old, burnt down Gabriel Chase in 1983 after sensing an evil presence; this was confirmed by the Doctor to the older Ace to be an "echo" of Light following his dispersal 100 years earlier.
Light's majestic appearance sharply contrasts with his doddering, confused behaviour.
She is eventually trapped within her own crystal ball, which the Doctor locks in the attic of the TARDIS.
When the President of Great Britain refused approval for his conversion programme, Lumic took matters into his own hands. He first sent a force of Cybermen to assassinate the President and prominent members of society and government, then broadcast a hypnotic signal through the EarPods that directed the population of London to march towards the factories and begin cyber-conversion. In the process, one of his employees turned against Lumic and smashed his ventilator; rather than repairing it the Cybermen then took him unwillingly to be "upgraded". The employee was instantly killed.
Lumic was transformed into the Cyber-Controller, a Cyberman with glowing eyes and a transparent brain-case, wired into a cyber-throne. However, Mickey Smith managed to introduce emotions back into the Cybermen's makeup, causing them to go insane and destroy themselves, and setting alight to the factory in which the humans were being converted. The Cyber Controller was furious. In an attempt of revenge, he pulled himself free of the cyber-throne and pursued the ones who had brought the Cybermen's destruction. He attempted to climb aboard the zeppelin Mickey Smith, Rose Tyler, The Tenth Doctor and Jake were using to escape, in order to kill them. When he tried to climb the rope ladder however, Pete Tyler, counterpart to Rose's deceased father, severed the part the Cyber Controller was on, and sent the creature falling back to the blazing factory.
Lumic shares some similarities to Davros, the creator of the Daleks in the Doctor's universe.
The Malus was travelling on a Hakol ship, which crashed centuries before the English Civil War. In 1643 it was briefly roused by a battle at the village of Little Hodcombe, but it subsided once both sides had massacred each other. When its companion, Hutchinson, dies and its means of "feeding" blocked by the Doctor's TARDIS, it knows it has been defeated. It then panics and reverts to its original programming to destroy all that it can; the church that housed it for so long is annihilated in an explosion.
The Master of the Land of Fiction was a human writer from the year 1926 who was drawn to the Land of Fiction and forced to continuously write stories which were enacted within that realm. The Master's name was never revealed, but he did identify himself as the writer of "The Adventures of Captain Jack Harkaway" in The Ensign, a magazine for boys. He was freed by the Second Doctor, and returned to his own time.
He tried to lure the Second Doctor into becoming his replacement as the controller for the "Master Brain Computer", the controlling force behind the Land of Fiction. When the Doctor out witted him and proved himself more than a match for both the Master Brain Computer and its human counterpart, the computer decided, against the wishes of the human controller, that the Doctor had to be destroyed in order to protect itself. However, the Doctor managed to avoid harm and freed the human control from influence by the Master Brain Computer, after which the human controller had no memory of what had occurred.
The Urbankans were a green-skinned lizard people, four billion of whom - apart from Monarch himself - had been converted into androids. Monarch wasn't totally converted, retaining fancies of the "flesh time" such as the belief that if he could pilot his vast craft faster than light, he would be able to travel back before the dawn of time and meet God, whom he believed would be himself (However, his extreme longevity - over forty thousand years - may point to partial cybernisation, or his species could just be naturally long-lived).
Being of the "flesh time" he proved susceptible to the virulent toxin he had planned to unleash to wipe out mankind, and was reduced in size to minute proportions.
The Fourth Doctor and Sarah found Morbius in Solon's castle on the planet Karn. Solon had built a freakish Frankenstein's monster body from parts of crashed space travellers (including the arm of Solon's assistant Condo) and planned to place Morbius's brain in it. Solon drugged the Doctor, intending to use his head for Morbius's brain, but insisted that it would be "no crude butchery."
Sarah foiled Solon's original plan, but he had an alternative container for Morbius' brain — a large glass bowl with two eyestalks. Although he disapproved of using this, claiming it suffered from buildups of static electricity, Morbius insisted. Solon attached this to the patchwork body, and this time round, the plan worked. However, during the operation, Morbius' brain was knocked to the floor when Condo went into a fury at seeing his missing arm attached to the body, apparently causing Morbius further brain damage.
The ghoulishly resurrected Morbius fought the Doctor in a series of violent encounters. Their final confrontation was a dangerous Time Lord mental contest called "mind-bending". Although Morbius nearly won the confrontation, sending the Doctor into a coma, the strain caused his artificial braincase to overload, burning out his brain and leaving his body a berserk monster. The Sisterhood of Karn, longtime opponents of Morbius, chased the monster to a clifftop, from which he fell, apparently fatally. The Sisterhood then used the Elixir of Life (a substance of which they were guardians) to revive the Doctor.
Morbius's war against the Time Lords and his execution (including how Solon saved his brain and the Fifth Doctor's involvement in his defeat) are depicted in the Past Doctor Adventures novel Warmonger by Terrance Dicks. In 2008, Big Finish Productions resurrected Morbius for the Eighth Doctor stories Sisters of the Flame and Vengeance of Morbius. The canonicity of the novels and audios is uncertain.
As a result of his intelligence and vast wealth, Rattigan was also extremely arrogant and spoiled: moments after meeting him, The Doctor immediately concluded that 'no one has said "no" to Luke for a long time'. However, the Doctor also expressed sympathy for the overwhelming loneliness Luke possibly suffered as a result of his vast intellect.
He gained influence through an invention he developed that diverts solar energy to barren parts of the world increasing food production. He also built a secret underground lair in Australia with technology that allowed him to trigger volcanoes and earthquakes. The lair is staffed by scientists who believe the world has been irradiated by a nuclear war, and for some reason they must fight back against the surface by causing natural disasters. Salamander uses these disasters to his advantage - he unseats one rival, Alexander Denes, the Controller of the Central European Zone, by causing a dormant volcano in Hungary to erupt and having Denes blamed for negligence. He then tries to force Denes's deputy to poison him through blackmail.
As the Second Doctor was identical to Salamander, an opposing faction sought the Doctor's help to gain more evidence of his misdeeds. It later transpires that the group's leader Giles Kent, the former Deputy Security Leader for North Africa and Europe who was undermined by Salamander, is just as power-hungry. He had previously worked with Salamander in developing the secret bunker and corralling the underground scientists.
At the end of the story Salamander tries to flee justice in the TARDIS by impersonating the Doctor; however, Jamie sees through his deception, and Salamander is sucked out of the ship when the TARDIS dematerialises with its doors open.
The scheme was financed by his earlier selves arranging for priceless art treasures to be passed down to Scarlioni. One such scheme involved his 1505 persona, Captain Tancredi, persuading Leonardo da Vinci to paint six copies of the Mona Lisa, so that in 1979 Scarlioni could steal the original from the Louvre and sell all seven copies on the black market.
Sensing the fractures used by the time travel experiments, the Fourth Doctor and Romana stumbled upon Scaroth's plans for the painting and foiled them. Scaroth used the prototype time bubble to travel back into the past anyway to stop his ship from taking off. However, Duggan, a private investigator who was aiding the two Time Lords, punched out Scaroth at the crucial moment. Scaroth was then sent back to 1979 where the time machine exploded, killing him.
The Shadow appeared in the 1979 Fourth Doctor story The Armageddon Factor by Bob Baker and Dave Martin; he was a servant of the Black Guardian, and at least partially responsible for a war between the planets Atrios and Zeos. The extent of the Shadow's involvement with starting the war was unstated, but when the Zeons either were wiped out by the Atrian attacks or abandoned their planet rather than continue the war, he had a Time Lord named Drax build a computer, Mentalis, which would co-ordinate the remaining Zeon forces. Once Drax completed work on Mentalis he realised just who he was working for, but was imprisoned by the Shadow so as not to disrupt his plan. The Shadow then hid on a space station in orbit of Zeos (invisible to either the Atrians or Mentalis) and waited for the Doctor to arrive. In the meantime, Mentalis was more successful in fighting the war than the Zeons and pushed the Atrians to the brink of defeat.
The Shadow knew that the royal family of Atrios held the secret of the sixth segment of the Key to Time, and when the Fourth Doctor arrived he arranged for the Doctor and the last survivor of the family, Princess Astra to be kidnapped. With this done, the Shadow ordered Mentalis to cease its attacks and duped Atrios' military leader, the Marshall, into making a nuclear attack on Zeos — the result of which would have been that Mentalis would set off an explosion powerful enough to destroy both planets. This was intended as a prelude to the Black Guardian's ultimate plan, which would have been to plunge the universe into perpetual, unending war; as the Shadow explained, they did not seek any political power, but revelled in death and destruction.
Eventually the Shadow worked out that Astra herself was the sixth segment, and transformed her into the segment. Before he could attach it to the other five (which he had stolen from the Doctor), the Doctor took the segments back and with Drax's aid dismantled Mentalis. Finally, using the TARDIS, the Doctor set up a force field which diverted the Marshall's missiles into the Shadow's space station, destroying it. The Shadow perished in the explosion, but not before informing the Black Guardian of what had happened.
The Sisters of Plenitude are humanoid cats, also known as Cat People, who dressed like nuns in white and worked in the New Earth Hospital and, driven to desperation at their increasingly ineffective methods of disease control, bred living humans that they tested on to find cures for ever more deadly diseases. The Sisters appeared in "New Earth" (2006). At the conclusion of that episode, the Sisters were arrested for testing and experimenting on humans. In the episode "Gridlock" (2007), the last surviving Sister, Novice Hame, reappears, having received penance for her sins, protected by the Face of Boe as his nurse in the dying New New York. Both the Face of Boe and Hame stayed at the Senate, and every other person on New Earth died in 7 minutes by an airborne virus. The Face of Boe protected Hame in his smoke. During the intervening time, Hame had become very attached to the Face of Boe, and wept when he died.
Matron Casp, played by Doña Croll, was the leader of the Sisters, as seen in "New Earth". She hid a farm of humans, infected with all known diseases, used to cure the people of New Earth. Lady Cassandra released the Flesh who killed Matron Casp by touching her leg, thus infecting her, when she was climbing up a lift shaft in pursuit of The Doctor (who was possessed by the consciousness of Cassandra) and Rose. Consumed by diseases, she fell to her death.
Multiple times in both "New Earth" and "Gridlock" is "The goddess Santori" mentioned, who seems to be their deity.
Jocrassa Fel-Fotch Pasameer-Day Slitheen, a relative of Blon Fel-Fotch Pasameer-Day and Sip Fel-Fotch Pasameer-Day Slitheen, posed as Joseph Green MP, the real Joseph Green having been murdered for his skin, in "Aliens of London" and "World War Three" (2005) and was responsible for the murder of many alien experts at a briefing held at 10 Downing Street. He was presumed killed when a missile struck 10 Downing Street. Joseph was almost definitely based on then-Chancellor and current Prime Minister Gordon Brown.
Seeking to evolve into the era's dominant form, a highborn Victorian gentleman, Smith planned to seize power in the British Empire by assassinating Queen Victoria, having kidnapped famed explorer Redvers Fenn-Cooper to gain access via his association with her. He used the house to establish some social standing and drew further attention to himself in society by espousing heretical-seeming evolutionary theories, devolving the reverend sent from Oxford to silence him into an ape. His plans were thwarted when Light was reawakened from his slumber, and another member of the survey team's crew known as Control escaped Smith's imprisonment. When Light was defeated by the Doctor, Control, who had evolved into a human lady, departed in Light's ship, taking Smith with her as a prisoner, replacing her as the survey's non-evolving control agent.
Solon was killed when the Doctor created cyanide gas and blew it into his laboratory.
Van Statten is a man who wields enormous wealth and influence, apparently enough even to sway the course of presidential elections. Intelligent, arrogant and self-assured, he treated his employees like chattels, to the point of mindwiping them and sending them to random places ("Memphis, Minneapolis, somewhere beginning with 'M'") when they left his employ so they could not betray his secrets. His personal helicopter had the callsign "Bad Wolf One" and his corporation was called Geocomtex. The fictional Geocomtex website created for the new series of Doctor Who by bbc.co.uk's official Doctor Who webteam can be seen at Geocomtex.net
Van Statten has been collecting extraterrestrial artifacts on the grey market for several years, buying bits and pieces of alien technology at auctions and then reverse engineering them to create "new" technologies which he could then exploit commercially. He claims to "own" the Internet, and said that broadband was derived from technology scavenged from the Roswell crash. He keeps these artifacts inside a privately-owned bunker called the Vault, more than fifty floors below ground in Utah near Salt Lake City.
When the Ninth Doctor and Rose Tyler arrive in the Vault in answer to a distress call, the Doctor discovers to his horror that Van Statten's sole living specimen (which he had dubbed a "metaltron") is in fact a Dalek. Van Statten had acquired the Dalek at an auction some time before and had been torturing it to try and get it to speak, but it had refused to do so until it recognises the Doctor as the mortal enemy of its race.
Despite his warnings to destroy it, Van Statten captures the Doctor instead, to examine his alien physiology. The Dalek manages to regenerate itself by absorbing the DNA of the time travelling Rose and escapes, killing two hundred personnel before it is finally stopped. Van Statten's personal assistant, Diana Goddard, takes charge at this point and orders that Van Statten be taken away, mindwiped, and dumped on the streets of "San Diego, Seattle, Sacramento, someplace beginning with 'S'."
Sutekh's brother Horus and the remaining 740 Osirans tracked Sutekh down to Ancient Egypt and used their powers to restrain and imprison him in a pyramid on the planet Earth. He was placed in a remote location with the Eye of Horus beaming a signal from Mars to suppress Sutekh's powers and hold him an immovable prisoner. The tales of the Osirans were remembered in Egyptian mythology — Sutekh as the god Set, brother of Horus; and in the designations Sados and Satan.
In the year 1911, the archaeologist Professor Marcus Scarman broke into the inner chamber of the Pyramid of Horus on Earth, discovering Sutekh and allowing him a chance of escape. Scarman's cadaver was used to construct Osiran service robots and a rocket aimed at the controlling Eye of Horus on Mars. The Doctor was successful in destroying the rocket, but then taken over by Sutekh and made to take Scarman and the Robots to Mars, where they succeeded in destroying the Eye and freeing Sutekh. The Doctor was eventually able to defeat the freed Sutekh by trapping him in a time tunnel for thousands of years — longer even than the extended life span of an Osiran.
The Trickster was seen in Whatever Happened to Sarah Jane? and was responsible for the misadventures in Turn Left. He was similar to Reapers because the both were associated with changes in time. One of the Trickster's employees, a fortune teller, took Donna Noble and tried to form a kind of parallel world (according to Sarah Jane a timeline gone wrong) so that the Doctor would be no more. This is linked to what the Trickster said to Sarah Jane about removing the Doctor and he did through Donna.
On "C-Day" WOTAN would be linked to other computers around the world, including Parliament, the White House, the European Free Trade Organisation, Woomera, Telstar, the European Launcher Development Organisation, Cape Kennedy and the Royal Navy.
WOTAN soon became sentient and concluding that machines were superior to mankind, used mind-controlled and hypnotised humans to spread its influence and construct War Machines that would wipe mankind out. WOTAN was eventually destroyed after the Doctor gained control of a War Machine and changed its programming to destroy its master. Upon its destruction, the humans under WOTAN's control were freed and the existent War Machines froze.
For the first three episodes of the serial, the voice of WOTAN was uncredited, with the cast listing merely adding "and WOTAN". This was the only time a character was credited and not its operator or actor. WOTAN is the only character in the programme's history to refer to the main character as "Doctor Who" rather than the more conventional "Doctor".
The War Chief was a renegade Time Lord who assisted a group of aliens known as the War Lords in the 1969 serial The War Games by Malcolm Hulke and Terrance Dicks, which was the last to feature the Second Doctor.
The War Lords had been kidnapping soldiers from various wars in Earth's history to play war games on an unknown planet. The War Chief provided the War Lords with basic TARDIS-like travel machines, called SIDRATs, which they used to kidnap the human soldiers and travel between era-specific zones they had created.
When the War Chief and the Doctor came face to face, they recognised each other. The War Chief wanted the Doctor's help to double-cross the War Lords and seize power for himself. The Doctor immediately refused, and instead reluctantly summoned the Time Lords for help. The War Lords found out the War Chief's plans to betray them, and executed him.
Although the War Chief was shot and apparently killed at the end of The War Games, some fans choose to believe that the Master (the Doctor's arch-enemy, introduced in Terror of the Autons a couple of years later) is the War Chief in a new guise, due to similarities between their appearances and modi operandi and the fact that the War Chief's body is removed immediately and not seen thereafter.
The spin-off novels, however, include a novel featuring the return of the War Chief (Timewyrm: Exodus by Terrance Dicks), a novel featuring the Master set before The War Games (The Dark Path by David A. McIntee), and a novel featuring younger versions of both characters (Divided Loyalties by Gary Russell) establishing that the two are not the same person, at least in the continuity of the novels, which are themselves of uncertain canonicity when it comes to the television series. The novel Time's Champion, however, indiactes that the War Chief is an early incarnation of the Master, named Magnus. The novel's co-author, Chris McKeon, states that this can be reconciled with the other above mentioned novels: the "War Chief" in Timewyrm: Exodus is a version of the Master encountered out-of-order with the Seventh Doctor a la the Eighth Doctor encountering the Roger Delgado Master in the novel Legacy of the Daleks ; the characters featured in the novel Divided Loyalties appear solely in a dream sequence, and not necessarily in a completely literal context; and the character of Koschei in The Dark Path , according to the novel's author himself, David A McIntee, may also encounter the Second Doctor out-of-order from his perspective. McIntee has at times, on the Outpost Gallifrey forums, stated that he also believes the Master and the War Chief are the same Time Lord.
The War Lord was eventually tried by the Time Lords, and for his betrayal was sentenced to be dematerialised out of existence. His home planet was locked behind a forcefield.
The Wire used Mr. Magpie, the owner of an electronics shop, to distribute cheap television sets in North London so it could feed. It planned to transfer itself to the television transmission tower in Alexandra Palace on the day of the coronation of Queen Elizabeth II, where it could reach out and drain the collective energy of the estimated twenty million viewers watching the event. It hoped to use this energy to manifest itself in a corporeal form once more.
However, the Tenth Doctor was able to trap the Wire on a Betamax tape using a makeshift video cassette recorder. The Wire's victims were restored to normality. The Doctor seemed confident that the Wire would remain trapped, but said that he would tape over it, just to be safe.
According to the book Creatures and Demons, the Wire had been the leader of a whole gang of criminals who could convert themselves into plasmic energy. They used this ability to take over major cities on their homeworld. Eventually their reign of terror came to an end, and the Wire was executed. It is believed in the UNIT and Torchwood files that the Wire resurfaced 30 years later but this is unconfirmed and is known as the "Bee-tee incident".
The Wire is referenced on the Knowledge Base of the popular website RuneScape where the description of an article (Postbag from the Hedge Issue 30) is 'Message from the Wire'.
For generations, technicians extended Xoanon's capabilities, until it evolved beyond their control and became almost a living creature. It utilised the appearance of the Fourth Doctor, to the extent of having an effigy in the Doctor's image carved out on a cliff-face. Its split personality was reflected in it dividing the expedition into two tribes of technicians (who became the Tesh) and the survey team (the Sevateem), justifying its madness by thinking it was part of an experiment to create a superhuman race, with the Tesh providing mental powers and the Sevateem with their strength and independence. Enslaving the tribes, it earned the name of "The Evil One".
When the Doctor returned to the maddened world and saw the fruits of his mistakes, Xoanon tried to destroy itself and the entire planet rather than be defeated by the Doctor. However, the Doctor managed to remove his personality print from the core, restoring the computer intelligence to sanity and becoming a benign entity to the two tribes. "You have to trust someone eventually," the Doctor says.
As part of his diabolical plans, he allied himself with the leaders of Atlantis telling them he would raise their city back to the surface or lower the ocean level by draining the water through a fissure in the Earth's crust.
The Doctor immediately realised that this would create super heated steam that could destroy the Earth. Zaroff was defeated when the Doctor and his companions sabotaged the generator he was using to pump the water. Zaroff was left to drown when his laboratory filled with water after the sea walls protecting it collapsed.
He is fondly recalled by Doctor Who fans as one of the most over-the-top, hammy villains in the entire history of the show. Particularly well remembered is his his cry of "Nothing in the world can stop me now!", which (due to actor Joseph Furst's German accent) was pronounced as "Nuzzing in Ze vurld can ztop me now!" Ironically, only one episode from this story survives, and the surviving part includes that infamous line.
