Web Video / Doctor Who: The Ginger Chronicles

Go To
Don't let the fact that she's a girl deter you.
Jim: You're not from around here, are you?
Doctor: Jim, I am from quite a ways away indeed.
Jim: mean, like, Canada?
Doctor: Uh, quite a bit further than Canada.

A Fan Series for Doctor Who in which the latest Doctor is ginger.

Oh yes, and a girl.

The series features Lilly Nelson as the Doctor with Rebecca Larken and Monte Hampton as her companions, Jim and Liz Baker. It has currently produced two episodes so far, A Dame To Kill and A Loud Hush. Summaries of these are available on the Doctor Who: The Ginger Chronicles page.


  • Action Girl: The new Doctor cheerfully punches a Gentleman in the face.
  • And I Must Scream: The Master's fate at the end of the first episode is to be held in suspended animation from the nect down and stored in an Apalapchian museum forever.
  • Attention Deficit... Ooh, Shiny!: The Doctor gets distracted by- of all things- a cockroach.
  • The Big Damn Kiss: Jim and Liz get one in the second episode; a really big one. The Doctor finds it Head-Tiltingly Kinky.
  • Advertisement:
  • Bizarre Taste in Food: The Doctor eats what appears to be custard creams dipped in Nutella. Then she requests pasta; raw or cooked, it doesn't matter.
  • Cloudcuckoolander:
    • This Doctor, as usual. Shouting "I am a sexy ginger girl!!" at the top of her lungs qualifies. She also attempted a Mission Impossible-style walk around Jim and Liz's house. Complete with sonic screwdriver as a spy gun.
    • This continues in the second episode, with such memorable moments as her attempting to talk to a firefly (and succeeding), creating an entire animated short for the point of explaining that they're all basically doomed, being cheerfully oblivious to the fact that some people might mind having a different body, and cheerfully punching a Gentleman in the face, twice.
  • Comically Missing the Point:
    Jim: You're not from around here, are you?
    Doctor: Jim, I am from quite a ways away indeed.
    Jim: mean, like, Canada?
    Doctor: Uh, quite a bit further than Canada.
  • Continuity Nod:
    • The Doctor has her past self's sonic screwdriver. If it's the Eleventh's or the Twelfth's, it's not obvious.
    • The Doctor yells 'Allons-y!' at one point.
    • The Doctor and the Master reference that the last time they met was the end of the Tenth's Doctor's run: The End of Time.
  • Cool Car: Subverted. The battery's dead, therefore, not cool.
  • Mood Whiplash: The Doctor goes from being cold and angry to completely delighted and bouncing around like a puppy in what can't be more than thirty seconds.
  • Mysterious Past: It's never explicitly said how the Doctor regenerated but it's implied to be the radiation poisoning from saving Wilf.
  • Narrator All Along: It turns out that the Master was the one who did the opening lines of narration from A Dame to Kill.
  • Oh, Crap!: Liz and the Doctor, when the unnamed woman starts jittering and gets a nosebleed.
  • Older Than They Look: The Doctor and the Master have been "playing games" for thousands of years.
  • Out-Gambitted: The Master gets a little too close with his swordplay and the Doctor steals his sonic so she can put him in stasis just like he did the humans.
  • Ship Tease: A bit when the Doctor flirts with Jim, but for the most part, it looks like Jim/Liz is canon and staying that way.
  • Shout-Out:
  • Tempting Fate:
    Liz: Doctor, you saved her!
    Doctor: Naturally.
    [Woman begins to shake, get a nosebleed, and generally die.]
  • Tranquil Fury: The Doctor's not pleased when her new friends are frozen but still calm.
  • Weapon of Choice: The sonic screwdriver, for the Doctor. It...Is....not....a wweeaapooonn...And she even gets a new one!

I'm a sexy, sexy ginger girl!!!
