Genesis of The Doctor

The fourth basic character remains always something of a mystery, and is seen rather through the eyes of the other three…

Dr. Who: A frail old man lost in space and time. They give him this name because they don’t know who he is. He seems not to remember where he has come from; he is suspicious and capable of sudden malignance; he seems to have some undefined enemy; he is searching for something as well as fleeing from something. He has a “machine” which enables them to travel together through time, through space, and through matter.
