The Doctor. The Doctor is a Timelord from Gallifrey, which in the recent series has been revealed to be destroyed. He usually saves the Earth/The Universe/Civilisation as we know it on a day-to-day basis. Generally talks alot, though it varies from regeneration to regeneration. Often, no, almost always has a compainion (A friend - not that way either.) travelling with him. Want to know more? Wiki has a large article on it which can explain it better than i can. Just look up 'Doctor who'
1. What do you mean youve never seen Doctor who?
2. The Doctor saved the universe again. Man, and I thought i was accoplished.
Timelords have the ability to regenerate after severe trauma or natural wear and tear. Their body will under go a complete transformation, and although the same person remains, their appearance and personality changes. (In other words, where a human would die, a Timelord would just change, thereby healing any injury in the process.)However a Timelord only has the ability to do this 13 times. (Doesnt matter much to them, in one life they Usually live to about a thousand anyway. Notice I said usually.)
The Doctor: I'd like to see a butterfly fit into a chrysalis case after it spreads its wings.
Polly: Then you did change.
The Doctor: Life depends on change, and renewal.
Then again, it depends on what your definition of 'Evil' is. And if you had a plan to commit that Evil.
Destroying the world is Evil. If you planned HOW you were going to destroy it, the plan would be Evil. Not because it destroyed the world itself, but because it told you how.
Im not very good at this explaining thing, am I?
