Characters: Doctor Who Expanded Universe
This page is for Doctor Who characters who don't fit neatly into any of the established continuities.

For other Doctor Who character lists including the Doctor Who Expanded Universe, see the following indexes and the main Doctor Who characters page:

Miscellaneous Expanded Universe Doctors

     Trevor Martin's Doctor 
Played by: Trevor Martin

An alternate Fourth Doctor from the stage play Doctor Who and the Daleks in the Seven Keys to Doomsday and its Big Finish version, "Seven Keys To Doomsday". When the Third Doctor starts the story off by dying, this Fourth incarnation accidentally kidnaps two human teens in a fit of post-regeneration mania and immediately gets tangled up in a Dalek plan on the planet Karn.

     David Banks' Doctor 
Played by: David Banks

Jon Pertwee's understudy in the stage play The Ultimate Adventure. Since Banks didn't want to "play Pertwee", as it were, he created a distinct persona and outfit for his Doctor. When Jon Pertwee fell ill in the middle of his first scene near the end of the play's long tour, Banks had to step in for two performances, and his Doctor has since been accepted into the Doctor Who mythos as an alternate timeline incarnation.

  • Green Aesop: Wore a big Greenpeace button.
  • Nice Hat: A classic adventurer's hat.
  • The Other Darrin: Kind of. And since David Banks played a main villain, he himself had to be replaced by his own understudy when he stepped in as the Doctor.
  • You Look Familiar: David Banks is otherwise most famous in Doctor Who fandom for playing the Cyber-Leader throughout the classic stories.

     Nicholas Briggs' Doctor 
Played by: Nicholas Briggs

Nicholas Briggs played the Doctor for four seasons in his Fan Work Audio Play series, the Doctor Who Audio Visuals. He reached Ascended Fanon status when he got featured prominently as a future regeneration in the Doctor Who Magazine comics. To make things even more confusing, another character (Shayde) then pretended to be him for an entirely unrelated Doctor Who Magazine Story Arc (which, in reality, was the magazine's way of testing if any new regeneration might catch on with the fans).

  • A Spot Of Tea: Extremely fond of it. Also wears a badge shaped like a teapot.
  • Ascended Fanon: Though not ascended all the way into the canon Whoniverse, he became firmly established in the Doctor Who Expanded Universe.
  • Bowties Are Cool: Wore a black one.
  • The Cameo: In the audio version of Seven Keys To Doomsday, he appears at the beginning, regenerating into Trevor Martin's Doctor.
  • Iconic Item: Carried a toothbrush in his pocket, similar to Five's decorative vegetable.
  • The Nth Doctor: He's introduced in the comics as a future regeneration, though it's unclear which number. This was before Doctor Who was revived in 2005, so for a while, this was perfectly acceptable within the comics canon.
  • You Look Familiar: Nowadays known as the Show Runner of Big Finish Doctor Who and as the voice of the Daleks and the Cybermen (and pretty much everything else) in the TV series.

Miscellaneous Expanded Universe Companions

     The Minister of Chance 
Voiced by: Stephen Fry

A Time Lord, and never-before seen old ally of the Doctor, who appears in the webcast "Death Comes to Time". Voiced by Stephen Fry. He got his own Audio Play spinoff (starring a few other Doctor Who actors), albeit played by a different actor and very explicitly not set in any Doctor Who continuity.

     Gareth Jenkins 
Played by himself

A kid who wrote to Jim'll Fix It asking to appear on Doctor Who. In the resulting story, "A Fix with Sontarans", he's pulled aboard the TARDIS by mistake, but when two Sontarans who stowed aboard the TARDIS in the hopes of blowing it up find him they mean to kill him in case he's the Gareth Jenkins who would hand the Sontarans their asses in 2001. Then Jimmy Savile bursts through the Fourth Wall (much to the dismay of the Doctor and Tegan, who evidently knew what neither scriptwriter Eric Saward nor Baker and Fielding could have about Savile).

     Jimmy (or Dave) Forbes 
Played by: James Matthews (stage, 1974), Alistair Hudson (stage, 1984), Joe Thompson (Big Finish, 2008)

From the stage production Doctor Who and the Daleks in the Seven Keys to Doomsday and its Big Finish version, "Seven Keys To Doomsday".

     Jenny Wilson 
Played by: Wendy Padbury (stage, 1974), Theresa Milgate (stage, 1984), Charlie Hayes (Big Finish, 2008)

From the stage production Doctor Who and the Daleks in the Seven Keys to Doomsday and its Big Finish version, "Seven Keys To Doomsday".
