** The Ninth Doctor, easily the most serious of all the New Doctors, head-bopped to Soft Cell in [[Recap/DoctorWhoS27E2TheEndOfTheWorld "The End of the World"]] and had two uncomfortable first attempts at dancing in [[Recap/DoctorWhoS27E10TheDoctorDances "The Doctor Dances"]]. Also the moments of slightly awkward, raw emotional honesty ("I could save the world but lose you."; "You just assume I'm... You just assume I don't... 'dance'.") and the sweet, childlike glee and [[TheKnightsWhoSaySquee fanboyish squee]] he's capable of.

* CelibateHero: Despite being accompanied by an UnwantedHarem of attractive female companions, some of whom have an overt romantic crush on him, the Doctor's relationship with his companions remains platonic despite occasional ShipTease. This makes sense given that Time Lords are effectively immortal, and therefore have less need to procreate. He's not asexual, having had children and grandchildren, and eventually marries River Song in the New Series (though even then any sex is strictly offscreen).

[[folder:The "Meta-Crisis" Tenth Doctor]]



When the Tenth Doctor was shot at the end of [[Recap/DoctorWhoS30E12TheStolenEarth "The Stolen Earth"]], he used up a regeneration by putting the energy into his hand that was severed in [[Recap/DoctorWho2005CSTheChristmasInvasion "The Christmas Invasion"]]. When Donna Noble later touched the hand by accident, the stored energy reacted with her DNA, creating what is essentially a half-human clone of the Doctor. The clone was sent to live out its life with Rose in the alternate universe, albeit a human life with no regenerations. For more information, see his entry on [[Characters/DoctorWhoOtherSupportingCast the "Other Supporting Cast" subpage]].

!!The Dream Lord
The Dream Lord is the main antagonist of [[Recap/DoctorWhoS31E7AmysChoice "Amy's Choice"]], and is eventually revealed to be, similar to the Valeyard, a personification of the Doctor's rarely-seen dark side and self-loathing. For more information, see his entry on [[Characters/DoctorWhoVillains the "Villains" subpage]].

!!The Curator
First seen in [[Recap/DoctorWho50thASTheDayOfTheDoctor "The Day of the Doctor"]], The Curator is ''heavily'' implied to be a future form of the Doctor, having gone back and revisited some old faces. Specifically, Creator/TomBaker's. His entire appearance is a major spoiler for that episode, and as such his information was kept heavily under wraps until the release. For more information, see his entry on [[Characters/DoctorWhoOtherSupportingCast the "Other Supporting Cast" subpage]].

to:

When [[quoteright:250:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/metacrisis_ten_3368.jpg]]
->'''Played by:''' Creator/DavidTennant (2008)

-->''"I'm part human. Specifically,
the Tenth aging part. I'll grow old and never regenerate. I've only got one life, Rose Tyler. I could spend it with you, if you want."''

An unusual tangent from the
Doctor we know. He was the final result of the original Doctor losing his hand in a Sycorax duel, which Jack rescued and returned to him. The Doctor kept it with him until a Dalek got in a cheap shot and made him regenerate. The Doctor, having a vain streak at the end of [[Recap/DoctorWhoS30E12TheStolenEarth "The Stolen Earth"]], he used up a time, cheated the regeneration by putting and used his severed hand as a container for the energy into his hand that was severed would recreate his body. This in [[Recap/DoctorWho2005CSTheChristmasInvasion "The Christmas Invasion"]]. When fact counted as far as his allotted regenerations went, leaving the Doctor with [[Creator/MattSmith one last regeneration]] in his first cycle.

Donna Noble later touched interacted with the hand by accident, the stored while it was coursing with regeneration energy reacted with her DNA, creating what is essentially a half-human clone of that tried to heal the Doctor. The clone limb as though it was sent to live out still a part of its life with Rose in the alternate universe, albeit a human life with no regenerations. For more information, see his entry on [[Characters/DoctorWhoOtherSupportingCast the "Other Supporting Cast" subpage]].

!!The Dream Lord
The Dream
Time Lord is owner, but didn't have enough DNA to recognize the main antagonist of [[Recap/DoctorWhoS31E7AmysChoice "Amy's Choice"]], and is eventually revealed to be, similar to the Valeyard, a personification full picture of the Doctor's rarely-seen dark body. Donna's DNA got sampled and used to fill in the gaps, causing the hand to sprout into a whole new Doctor with a bit of Donna's temper inside him. He picked up her human body, leaving him a Time Lord brought down to human level- what he called a "biological meta-crisis." It led this clone to choose a different path from the Doctor, reciprocate his love for Rose Tyler in his stead, and live a happy life in a parallel universe with her.

However, the original Doctor also noticed the clone resembled his attitude right after coming out of the Time War, like the Ninth Doctor before mellowing out, and less qualms about killing his enemies. He left Meta-Crisis Ten in her care to help him overcome these dangerous qualities and satisfy her love for him that he couldn't provide as a Time Lord.

----
* BigDamnKiss: Shares a very passionate one with Rose when he reveals that he really loves her, which the Tenth Doctor could not say, because Rose would never leave his
side and self-loathing. For more information, see his entry he would outlive her.
* ChekhovsBoomerang:
** The Doctor's hand was involved in a great deal of important events before it finally turned into him.
** The regeneration used to create him becomes important later
on [[Characters/DoctorWhoVillains the "Villains" subpage]].

!!The Curator
First seen
in [[Recap/DoctorWho50thASTheDayOfTheDoctor [[Recap/DoctorWho2013CSTheTimeOfTheDoctor "The Day Time of the Doctor"]], when it turns out that, because of this, the Eleventh Doctor is actually the thirteenth and the last regeneration of his first cycle.
* CloningBlues: Averted. He has no angst at all over being a clone. He doesn't even care that he's half human. Nor does he have "I'm not real!" sort of blues. "I ''am'' the Doctor."
* CompositeCharacter: Wears Ten's suit and shoes, has Donna's characteristics stacked against Ten's, and resembles Nine, also wearing a plain, collar-less shirt without buttons or a tie to go with it, similar to Nine's habit of wearing stripped down attire and simple V-neck sweaters.
* DarkerAndEdgier: With respect to the Tenth Doctor he's much more unhinged and ''definitely'' less apprehensive about murder.
* IDidWhatIHadToDo:
The Curator is ''heavily'' implied Daleks had nearly destroyed the Universe, and if he left them around, even without a reality bomb they could ''still'' destroy the cosmos. He explictly points this out before flipping the switch.
* DoppelgangerReplacementLoveInterest: Not only does he look just like Ten, he has all of Ten's memories, experiences, thoughts and feelings.
* FanficMagnet: For Rose x Ten shippers.
* {{Fanservice}}: Born from an unclothed hand, he's naked right off the bat when it grows into a complete body.
* HalfHumanHybrid: Part Human part Time Lord.
* HappilyEverAfter: With Rose in exchange for the original Ten because he gets
to be a future form grow old with the woman he loves.
* HotBlooded: Being created with help
of Donna's DNA gave him this. Unlike the Doctor, having gone back he doesn't hesitate to obliterate a Dalek fleet with the flick of a switch.
* LoveConfession: Implied
and revisited some old faces. Specifically, Creator/TomBaker's. His entire appearance confirmed to tell Rose "I love you" in an inaudible whisper in her ear, triggering a kiss.
* MixAndMatchMan: He's an ArtificialHuman clone of the Tenth Doctor created from the combined DNA of him and Donna Noble.
* NakedOnArrival:
-->'''Donna:''' It's you! \\
'''Meta-Ten:''' Oh, yes! \\
'''Donna:''' ... You're naked. \\
'''Meta-Ten:''' Oh, ''[[CaptainObvious yes]].''
* OtherMeAnnoysMe: Ten makes it very clear his clone's creation was against his wishes after seeing him off millions of Daleks with the flick of a switch. This hits way too close to home and Ten
is ''furious''.
-->'''Ten:''' Because we saved the universe, but at
a major spoiler cost. And the cost is ''him.'' He destroyed the Daleks. He committed genocide. He's too dangerous to be left on his own.\\
'''Meta-Ten:''' ''[accusingly]'' You ''made'' me.\\
'''Ten:''' Exactly. You were born in battle, full of blood and anger and revenge. Remind you of someone? That's me, when we first met. And you made me better. Now you can do the same
for that episode, him.\\
'''Rose:''' But he's not you.\\
'''Ten:''' He needs you. That's ''very'' me.
* TheSlowPath: One reason Ten left the Meta-Crisis Doctor with Rose; no advanced age or regenerations
and as such no TARDIS.
* TheUnfettered: The ''other'' reason Ten left
his information clone with Rose. He '''''casually''''' ''committed genocide on the Daleks''. While Ten had his own moral code and wouldn't resort to killing unless it was kept heavily under wraps until absolutely necessary, Meta-Crisis immediately acted to blow the release. For more information, see his entry on [[Characters/DoctorWhoOtherSupportingCast Daleks up. This scared Ten into wondering just how much terror he could bring to the "Other Supporting Cast" subpage]].universe if someone didn't reform him, so he decided Rose could do the trick.

!! "The Curator"
[[quoteright:250:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/curator_1724.png]]
->'''Played by:''' Creator/TomBaker (2013)

-->''"I'm only a humble curator, I'm sure I wouldn't know."''

From what is suggested on-screen, the Curator may be a much, much older incarnation of the Doctor following many regenerations. He chose to retire from his adventures through time and space, and become the curator of the National Gallery. He looks suspiciously familiar. (The Titan Comics expanded universe has since confirmed that the Curator ''is'' a future incarnation of the Doctor.)

----
* BlatantLies: While he [[AmbiguousSituation skirts around]] the question of being a future incarnation of the Doctor and even claims ''not'' to be at one point, the Eleventh Doctor doesn't doubt that he's speaking to [[MyFutureSelfAndMe his future self]] for a second.
* CoolOldGuy: A very old man who may or may not be the Doctor and who's still as affable as ever.
* CrypticConversation: Again, he implies that he's one of The Doctor's regenerations but at the same time doesn't give anything definitive.
* IconicOutfit: Averted, but ''not'': even though he's "revisiting the old favorites" in terms of faces, he's seen without Tom Baker's trademark scarf. WordOfGod has it that he gave it to Osgood.
* LeaningOnTheFourthWall: conversation with the 11th Doctor doubles as Creator/TomBaker congratulating Creator/MattSmith on becoming one of his successors in the role of the Doctor. This ties into the end of ''Series/AnAdventureInSpaceAndTime'', where Creator/MattSmith appears (in character) and meets Creator/WilliamHartnell.
* MeaningfulName: In Latin, the name ''Curator'' stems from the verb ''curare'', which means ''to take care of'' or ''to cure''. In other words... a Doctor by yet another name.
* NoNameGiven: Just "The Curator".
* RetiredBadass: Gave up saving the universe and settled down to become a simple museum curator on Earth. Just as Eleven mused he could do one day.
* SequelHook: He tells Eleven that Gallifrey was saved in "[[Recap/DoctorWho50thASTheDayOfTheDoctor The Day of the Doctor]]", and encourages the Doctor to look for it. Which leads into the MythArc of Series 8 and 9.
* YouLookFamiliar: [[invoked]] He has gone through enough regenerations that he started "revisiting old faces" (but only the favorites!). In this case, he looks like an older Fourth Doctor.
--> '''Eleven''': I never forget a face.\\
'''Curator:''' Oh, I know you don't. And in years to come, you might find yourself...revisiting a few. But just the old favorites.
* VisualPun: Who knows? Who... [[GagNose nose]].
* WhamLine: His introduction, startling the Eleventh Doctor with the same voice and features as his fourth incarnation.
--> '''Eleven:''' I could retire and become the curator of this place.\\
'''Curator:''' You know, I really think you ''might''.
* WhamShot: When he shows his face, both Eleven and fans know that he is the Doctor because he's played by Tom Baker.
