Description: Doctor close for YR.jpg

The Doctor is a Time Lord from the planet Gallifrey. The Time Lords were the keepers of the order of time until they were wiped out in the Time Wars. Long before the war, the Doctor fled Gallifrey due to his dislike of the Time Lords non-interference directive, stealing a time machine (the Tardis), and flying off in time and space with the intention of interfering.  All Time Lords can regenerate, or survive death, 12 times.  Each time they ‘die’ their body goes through a change – a regeneration – and the Doctor lives again with a new face and a new facet of his personality.  In his eleventh incarnation, the Doctor is an excited explorer of the universe, with a keen intelligence that means he often notices what everyone else has missed.  He can turn in a moment from being interested in the largest of things to being fascinated by the tiniest of things. But his excitement sometimes results in him tripping over himself and walking into things. He enjoys anything that's different and interesting, and as always he has a powerful sense of right and wrong and a determination to do what's right. The Doctor is sometimes referred to as ‘the oncoming storm’ by his enemies.  Gallifreyan physiology differs in that the Doctor has two hearts instead of one.

 
 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Amy Pond, the young Scottish woman from the English village of Leadworth first met her 'raggedy Doctor' when she was a little girl and had to wait fourteen years before he finally returned and took her off in the TARDIS. She was brought up by her aunt, without a Mum and Dad. She's very brave, bold and decisive, always ready to confront the problem or force the Doctor to tell her what he's up to. To the Doctor's surprise, she can sometimes see what's going on more clearly than he does. She wants to see the universe before, perhaps, getting back home in time for her wedding day. But that crack in her wall may turn out to be something she can never quite escape. At the beginning of ‘A Polymorphic Counterfeit’ Amy has just lost her boyfriend, Rory, to one of the cracks in time.  Rory’s existence has been wiped from everyone’s memory but the Doctor, who is immune to the time effect.

Description: River for YR.jpg

River Song is an archaeologist from the future who the Doctor keeps meeting in the wrong order. He first met her on the planet of The Library, but we haven't yet seen where she first met him. So her journal is packed with information the Doctor feels he shouldn't know about yet. They're going to be very close: River knows the Doctor's real name (and no one knows the Doctor’s name) and she even has a sonic screwdriver of her own that she claims he gave to her. She even knows how to fly the TARDIS.  Speculation runs to the idea that, in some future regeneration (or perhaps past one) River Song is the Doctor’s wife.

 the future who the Doctor keeps meeting in the wrong order.

He first met her on the planet of The Library, but we haven't yet seen where she first met him. So her journal is packed with information the Doctor feels he shouldn't know about yet. They're going to be very close: River knows the Doctor's real name and she even has a sonic screwdriver of her own that she claims he gave to her. She even knows how to fly the TARDIS. The tragedy is, the Doctor knows how River dies, so when the two of them meet at the crash of the Byzantium, share that picnic at Asgard and whatever they did together at the Singing Towers, he'll have a terrible secret that he won't be able to tell her.

River has a knack for getting into trouble and knows the Doctor can help her get out of it. But as for just how much they meant to each other: spoilers!

The TARDIS, or Time and Relative Dimensions in Space, is the Doctor's vehicle and home that can take him to any place and any time. The Tardis puts out a field wherever the Doctor lands that translates all languages and makes the inhabitants of the time he is visiting see him as a part of their world.  Having had the interior of its control room destroyed when the Doctor last regenerated, it reconfigured its appearance and now features a clicking date display, a new central time rotor with green glass globes and typewriters and taps for controls, which suits the Eleventh Doctor's style. It's even given him a port for his Sonic Screwdriver. The Doctor treats the TARDIS like an old friend, calling it 'dear' or 'old girl'. It's bigger on the inside than the outside and its swimming pool may now be in its library. Or somewhere else: it'll turn up.  During the Doctor’s first ‘life’ the chameleon circuit of the Tardis failed, leaving it disguised as a 1960’s UK Police Box.  It has remained the same for over 40 years of TV shows.

Doctor Who wiki info:

 

Anti-plastic: Anti-plastic is a blue liquid, and may be made out of anti-matter, based on the name and the reaction with normal plastic.

 

Psychic paper: Shows what the holder of the paper wants the person reading the paper to see.  Apart from its usual function of subterfuge, the paper could receive messages as well.

 

Sonic Screwdriver:

The sonic screwdriver is apparently the product of Gallifreyan technology since other Time Lords used the device and understood it enough to construct their own versions of it. The name of the device itself suggests that it functions using sound waves, although the actual workings of the device have never been explained.
