I'm still writing my far-too-detailed analysis of your character application. There's a lot to break down, and a lot to research. Most of it I've already been over before, but not in a while, and I don't do things by half-measures. Not stuff related to Who, anyway. The main issue so far is the description of the TARDIS, and I hope to have a better suggestion when I'm finished. Which, hopefully, should be within a few hours. I can't focus entirely upon it though, I've got other stuff I need to do in the meanwhile.
Alright, six-hundred and thirty three words later...
Few hours he says...
Name: Unknown. This is accurate.
Alias: The Doctor, many more. Also accurate.
Gender: Male. Not strictly true, but might as well be.
Alliance: Hero. Kriffing right.
Powers/abilities: Has a screwdriver that can unlock anything - This is where I start to take issue. There’s a lot on the Screwdriver, both in regards to the history and functionality of the piece. I’m mostly going to ignore the history, focusing on the functionality. The sonic screwdriver was first seen in Fury from the Deep in 1968, where it was used to unscrew some screws. In subsequent uses up to the modern era, it has had all multitude of functions, the vast majority of which can be classified under “tech-magic.” It functions as a scanner, a firestarter, a hacking tool, a medical tool, a pair of bolt-cutters, and all other forms of miracles. I’m personally of the opinion that it’s overpowered and a glorified magic wand, and that the decision to destroy it in 1982 was probably the correct one. The sonic works according to the Power of Plot - new powers are added as story demands, often to get the Doctor and co out of corners the writers wrote themselves into.
Teleporting blue box that can take him anywhere - this is easily one of the worst descriptions of the TARDIS I’ve ever seen. Honestly… I’m not entirely sure where to start with this. The entirety of that sentence is just incorrect on an absurd amount of levels. Let’s just go through it word by word, and I do have to.
Teleporting - The TARDIS does not teleport. It doesn’t even transmat. I’m not going to fully go into detail in how the TARDIS travels, I don’t have the patience, but comparing teleportation to travel through the Time Vortex is akin to comparing a Stirling Engine to a full Dyson Sphere. The difference of technological requirement is insane, and I’m not even factoring TARDIS technology into the equation.
Blue Box - I don’t have the willpower to explain the specifics of the Dimensional Cabinet, but suffice to say, “blue box” is an extraordinarily lacking description of it. The Doctor’s TARDIS’s outer shell poorly resembles a British Police Telephone box (I say poorly because of all the different variations of the prop and how they’ve changed over the years, see the links down at the bottom for more information,) as dictated by the faulty Chameleon Circuits of the Type 40. In regards to the Chameleon Circuit, I think it’s reasonable to assume that the Block-Transfer Equations making up the Cabinet memetically convert the exterior into the object it is described at, on a fundamental level.
That can take him anywhere - Again, I don’t think it’s worth the effort to go through every example where the TARDIS is unable to go to a location, and I suspect that the fourth-dimensionality will barely be used in this RP, but a more accurate rewording of this section of the sentence would be “that can travel to almost anywhere and anywhen.” I suspect that exact phrasing has been used at least once, somewhere within Who lore. Probably one of the VNAs.
Appearance - this is a nice looking dude. Sweet suit. Bit bland for the Doctor, needs a dash more colour somewhere, but it’s just a image of a model from a clothes site. No complaints here really.
Personality/Bio: The Doctor is a 900 year old time lord from the planet Gallifrey in the constellation of kasterborous, he is an intelligent hero who travels through time - Judging by his appearance, and your statement about his age, this is an alternate Tenth Doctor. Or Ninth. Kasterborous is capitalised, and is located near the centre of the Mutter’s Spiral Galaxy, also known as the Milky Way. Intelligent, yes, hero, yes, I’d also add lucky there too.
Useful links for Who-related research:
A pretty exhaustive compendium of information in regards to the lore of the TARDIS’s functions.
Probably the largest collection of information upon Gallifrey, the Time Lords, and the Great Houses, to be found on Sol 3.
Almost all information upon the physicalities of the TARDIS props can be found in these forums, as well as a stupendous amount of custom TARDISes.
Before we get to screeching about Who canon, I provide these two sources:
The first is a fantastic essay upon canonicity within Doctor Who, written by Paul Cornell, an author with much experience working within the Who universe.
The second is the TARDIS Data Core’s official policy upon canon, and I recommend a look at the valid sources page as well.
