Two of the many faces of the two greatest heroes of N-Space.
N-Space is the name given to another reality (though it is also known as the Gamma universe.) Created by an all powerful entity. N-Space restarts whenever it comes to its natural end, endlessly repeating itself forever.
Everything we know about N-Space comes from a time capsule that crash landed into our universe in the year 1947 in the Mexican town of Roswell.
The time capsule was created by the final race to exist in N-Space, known as the Mesraks. The Mesraks evolved on the last planet capable of supporting life in N-Space. A highly advanced culture, they searched the universe for other life forms only to come to the conclusion that they were alone.
The Mesraks would later discover time travel and venture backwards through their own universe’s history. They were mindful not to change its events or else their race may very well never come into existence. Instead the Mesrak’s would document the history of their version of N-Space which they stored in a museum held at the very end of N-Space.
Why they sent this capsule to our universe no one knows, but it is known that they sent the capsules containing their history to many alternate universes. Perhaps the Mesraks just simply wanted as many people as possible to know their universes history? Or perhaps they had foreseen that these capsules and the information within them would play an important role in the history of the planets they were sent too?
Whatever the case the memory banks within the unmanned capsule survived the crash in Roswell and were quickly taken in by the government.
Experts and professors from all over the world would come to investigate and translate the information and it would subsequently be shared among all of the great world power’s leaders. It is still to this day generally kept from the mainstream public however.
All of the information contained in the memory banks has still not been completely translated. Many of the men responsible for translating the memory banks (who were given false civilian identities after they left the government to cover up their past as paranormal investigators for their respective governments,) such as Sydney Newman, Terry Nation, Nigel Kneale, Matt Groening and Ishiro Honda would later go on to use the information in the memory banks as the basis for films and television series, such as Godzilla, Doctor Who and Quatermass.
The government didn’t mind, as the fact that the general public believed that important figures from N-Space like Godzilla and the Doctor were characters of fiction meant that the public would never suspect the truth.
Other bits and pieces of information about N-Space have occasionally trickled out over the decades and have in turn led to the creation of other films and television series.
N-Space is very much real however and its history is truly fascinating. Compiled here is the first of a four part series containing everything that has been translated up until the time of writing, 2018. More information will undoubtedly be unveiled, but for now this represents the most of what we know about N-Space.
This section will detail N-Space’s creation, the war between God and the Anti God, the lives of N-Space’s two greatest heroes, the Doctor and Romana, the history of their people, the Time Lords, the rise of various alien empires in the Anti God’s place, from the Daleks to the Furons, and finally the early history of earth.
N-Space was created by a powerful creature whose origins are still somewhat shrouded in mystery. This creature who came to be known as God by many inhabitants of N-Space didn’t create the universe alone.
A space ship from N-Space’s future called Terminus travelled backwards in time and caused a massive explosion when it deposited its unstable fuel. God would harness the power of this inferno and use it to eventually form his own universe which became known as N-Space.
N-Space was not the first universe to ever exist. God had seen countless universes come and go. He did not create these universes (in fact he is believed to have originated in one of them) but he did intervene in many other realities. Though God had saved countless lives across trillions of universes, ultimately he felt that no matter how hard he tried evil would always remain in the multiverse.
God decided that he would create his own universe that would be free of evil. Unfortunately however from the very beginning of N-Space’s history, God’s dark twin, simply known as the Anti God would attempt to corrupt and destroy N-Space.
According to some sources God created his first species, the Nibblonians, a decade or so before he created his universe to try and stop the Anti God from entering his universe, which sadly failed.
God either deliberately or accidentally created N-Space to constantly regenerate itself. It has the normal lifespan of a universe, but once it dies it reverts to its original form and starts all over again. All of its life forms are recreated in the process and their history, repeats, though as everything in N-Space is random, there may be some differences each time. No life form retains the memory of its previous lives however.
No one knows why God created his universe to be like this, but a number of possibilities have been proposed by both researchers in our universe and the Mesraks.
1/ Many believe that it was an accident. God being an immortal creature may have imbued his own essence into the universe when creating it, which made N-Space immortal too. Some have argued that God and the Anti God got caught up in the universes never ending cycle when they entered it, and that they are forced to repeat the same actions over and over again against their will.
Just like all of the creatures of N-Space, when each iteration of N-Space ends, God and the Anti God are returned to how they were at the beginning of N-Space with their memories of everything that happened being wiped.
Proponents of this theory therefore argue that N-Space’s history is the same in most versions, as God and the Anti God will repeat exactly the same actions as they did before, with the only key differences being that sometimes the Anti God wins, and sometimes God wins.
2/ God may have created the universe for less altruistic reasons. It is believed that God and his sworn archenemy the Anti-God may in fact be friends who view their rivalry as a game to keep themselves amused. In every single iteration of N-Space, the Anti God will try and destroy it. Sometimes he wins, sometimes God wins, but neither have ever managed to destroy one another and it is believed that this is because they both enjoy fighting each other for the fate of N-Space. This theory was always contentious however as God appeared to show genuine concern for his creations. Instead it was believed that the only reason he couldn’t kill the Anti God or vice versa is because neither could actually die. Its is possible however that God simply feigns concern for his “children” to get them on his side.
3/ That God created the universe in this way so that no life form would ever go to waste. As the universe will repeat itself again and again and as everything is random and by chance then every possibility can be played out. Someone who might die in the Dalek invasion in one version, could go on to live a happy and long life in the next where the Daleks don’t even exist. In the next version of events the Titanic may not sink and the 1500 plus innocent people who died in one version, will live out their full potential in the next.
However many disputed this explanation pointing out that its actually crueller to force every life form to relive their own lives forever. Whilst its true that in certain cases someone who died young in one version might not in the next, ultimately they will still have to live out the version where they die young, or suffer a life of unbearable hardship an infinite number of times as well.
Furthermore there are certain circumstances where someone would be forced to relive the same horrible existence over and over again regardless of the outcome. Take for instance someone born during the middle of a terrible period in human history that lasts for their entire life time? Someone born to abusive or even psychotic parents? There is no way that all or at least most of their lives throughout eternity would not be absolutely horrific.
Imagine being made to live through these periods of history again and again forever!
4/ It is possible that God created the universe to restart itself whenever it ends because he wanted to build the perfect universe, but knew he would never be able to do it in one universes life time. Rather than just create possibly billions of universes, he decided to make one relive itself over and over, until he could find a way to get it right. Proponents of this theory argue that his tactics for helping his creations in each version will change somewhat, but in the latest version of N-Space he was trying a more subtle approach, which he found the most effective.
Ultimately however the Mesrak’s would later discover that each version of N-Space did follow largely the same history after all, which seemingly proved the theory that God didn’t intend for the universe to be immortal, and that he and the Anti God’s memories are wiped each time it restarts too.
They learned this through examining the history of Philip J Fry, who in some versions of N-Space became lost in a time machine that allowed him to live through multiple versions of N-Space all of which had largely the same history.
Some Mesrak and human scientists on our earth however have argued that whilst history may largely follow the same version of events in each iteration of N-Space, there are still some differences within each iteration.
Most of the time these changes would not be big enough to seriously change the history of events, but the Mesrak’s believed that sometimes they could lead to N-Space’s history being significantly different. For instance one tiny difference in the Anti God and God’s war with each other, could lead to the Anti God winning in one version.
It is also possible that Gods motives in creating N-Space may still not be as altruistic as his followers believed, but that he has simply been ensnared in his own trap.
Whatever the case when God created N-Space, he inadvertently created multiple parallel universes around it too. All of these universes would repeat themselves forever with largely the same history each time just like N-Space too. The creation of each of these universes would in turn lead to the creation of more universes too, leading to a seemingy infinite number of realities created from N-Space.
Many of these alternate universes created around N-Space’s histories have been documented by the Mesrak’s as well and were included in the same time capsule that crashed into N-Space. There have also been other capsules containing information about the history of these universes such as Z-Space that have landed on our earth too. We will be examining the history of some of these universes in another section.
Just as with N-Space, the history of these universes have inspired several science fiction stories in our universe.
Upon creating N-Space, God would immediately be forced to do battle with his counterpart, the Anti God. No one knows where this monster came from but since the creation of N-Space he has has waged a war against its people again and again. The Anti God also sent many of its Demons into the other universes created around N-Space such as his favourite (and most twisted) child the Beast, who was dispatched to M-Space. The Beast however would be opposed by God’s children (who followed him to N-Space) from the start of M-Space’s history. They would eventually imprison the Beast deep within a planet by a black hole, but not before he created hordes of Demonic children who would terrorize various worlds in M-Space.
The Anti God’s son, the Beast in his prison in M-Space.
Whilst M-Space was able to overcome the Demons eventually, not all universes would be as lucky. Many that the Anti God sent his children too would be completely overrun and turned into the hell that the Anti God had wished to make N-Space into.
Arguably the most destructive of all the Anti God’s children was his least favourite son who would come to be known as Scratchman. Scratchman was the only one of the Anti God’s children who was not loyal to him. With his power at one point even greatly exceeding that of the Anti God himself, the Anti God and God were forced into a temporary alliance in order to defeat Scratchman.
Ultimately however neither was able to destroy the monster. Instead they simply split him into several lesser beings, who were considerably less powerful. All but two of these Scratchmen were killed. The final two Scratchmen would flee to other universes. They would slowly attempt to regain their power by consuming various realities. One of the two Scratchmen would later attempt to invade M-Space, whilst another would attempt to invade N-Space. They would both be opposed by each universe’s version of the Doctor.
Early Years and Feud Between The Gods
The enemy of all life in N-Space. The Anti God!
From the beginning of N-Space’s history, the Anti God would begin his war against the rest of creation by creating monsters and transforming various inhabitants of N-Space into monsters themselves.
Among his earliest creations were the Great Vampires. The Great Vampires were originally a giant race of hostile reptile creatures who waged war on the rest of the universe. They slaughtered thousands of worlds even before they were Vampires!
Admiring their bloodlust and cruelty, the Anti God would twist their bodies and turn them into immortal, vastly more powerful Demons, who needed the blood of natural creatures to survive.
The Great Vampires would wipe out billions of species across the universe and became, for a while, the most feared creatures in the cosmos. The Great Vampires had the power to transform other natural creatures into similar, but lesser blood drinking Demons like themselves. These lesser Vampires also had the power to turn other races into members of their kind, regardless of their species, through an infectious bite.
Many of these lesser Vampires were disposed of once the Great Vampires had used them for all they worth, but a few would be kept as foot soldiers for the Great Vampires, whilst others would even manage to escape their Great Vampire masters and take over other worlds on their own.
Lesser Vampires generally couldn’t survive without their masters. Usually if a Great Vampire was killed then all of the Vampires it sired were killed as well. However there were a few lesser Vampire groups who were able to sever the psychic connection between themselves and their Vampiric masters using alien technology, made from various worlds their masters had conquered. As a result these Vampires were able to survive long after the great Vampires were killed off in a war with the Time Lords.
One group of these free lesser Vampires would later arrive on the earth at the dawn of early man. These Vampires would quickly overrun humanity with their superior strength, and alien technology.
Humanity was rounded up into cages, bled like animals for the Vampires, and hunted for sport! The Vampires would even hold a massive human hunt to see who could kill the most amount of humans every year.
The Vampires would rule the world for roughly 1000 years, but their time would come when the earth was invaded by the last of an all powerful race of aliens known as the Fendahl. The Fendahl killed most of the Vampires, but the last of the Vampires with their advanced technology were able to slay the monster (though its essence would survive buried under the ground, but more on that later.)
The remaining Vampires meanwhile, weakened by the Fendahl were overthrown by humanity and most of them were killed. A few survived however and would continue to prey on humanity, and make more people into Vampires like them throughout the centuries. The Vampires whilst never becoming the dominant race again would still nevertheless be able to spread to almost every part of the earth, leading to Vampire myths appearing in every culture on the world.
Aside from the Vampires, the Anti God would also create gigantic horned Demons capable of the most devastating destruction. Much like with Vampires, myths about Demons would subsequently emerge on trillions of worlds across the universe.
The Destroyer, one of the many Demons created by the Anti God to terrorise planets all over the universe.
The Anti God also created powerful disembodied spiritual creatures such as the Nestene Consciousness, The Great Intelligence and The Great Devourer who would also go on to terrorise many worlds too.
The Anti God was also responsible for the creation of the Brain Spawn, a race of disembodied brains who had the power to drain their enemies intelligence before destroying them. The Brain Spawn were among the most dangerous of all the Anti God’s creations. According to an ancient legend from the Nibblonians, the Brain Spawn were the first monsters the Anti God created.
One of the most dangerous monsters ever created by the Anti God however was Sutekh the Destroyer. Sutekh was an Osiran, one of the most advanced races in the universe. Though the Osirans had nothing to fear, even from the Anti Gods Demons and Vampires, Sutekh deep down was always terrified that one day another race might grow to rival his own in power. He refuted his brother, the commander of the Osirans Horus’ claim that all sentient life was their kin. Sutekh wanted to kill all other life forms to prevent any from one day threatening him.
The Anti God, without Sutekh’s knowledge gave him remarkable power, far beyond that of even his fellow Osirans, just to see what he would do with them. With these powers, Sutekh would destroy his own world and billions of other worlds across the universe. Even the Anti God became terrified of his cruelty.
As the Doctor would later say, Sutekh’s name would be abominated in every civilised world throughout the known universe.
Sutekh would later be defeated when the last of the Osirans working together would succeeded in trapping him on earth beneath a Pyramid, where he would remain for many thousands of years.
Among the Anti God’s most dangerous creations included the Snake like creature known as the Mara, the vastly powerful Demonic entity known as Fenric and the terrible Zodin, a gigantic Demon lady with hair and claws made of fire. Zodin would become one of the most dangerous adversaries of the renegade Time Lord known as the Doctor who later said in his 6th incarnation that they didn’t make villains like Zodin anymore.
Arguably the Anti Gods most evil creation however was the gigantic Dragon, King Ghidorah. Created near the beginning of the universe, King Ghidorah was a virtually indestructable three headed monster that could breath lightening!
Ghidorah the three headed monster.
Ghidorah would go on to become one of the most feared monsters throughout the history of the universe. Highly advanced races who were aware Ghidorah was headed for their world would often just flee their home planet altogether rather than actually face the monster.
Throughout the entire history of N-Space only two worlds that would successfully drive off King Ghidorah. Gallifrey and our planet Earth.
King Ghidorah attacked Gallifrey, and caused mass devastation on the planet with all of the Time Lords weapons at first having no effect on the golden giant. The Time Lords bow ships which they had used to wipe out the Great Vampires simply bounced off of the monsters scales!
Eventually however the Time Lords would defeat King Ghidorah by using mind weapons which very nearly destroyed the Dragon. Though King Ghidorah would manage to escape the Time Lords, his mind was permanently damaged by the Time Lords attack, and this would later make him vulnerable to being controlled by other alien life forms.
Many would be conquerors would use their own primitive mind controlling technology to take control of King Ghidorah’s now fragile mind (though it had three heads, they all acted as one) and make him their puppet.
However even with King Ghidorah’s unstable mind the monster was still not easy to control, and it would often eventually break free of its masters and destroy them as penance.
Earth would successfully drive off King Ghidorah thanks to the help of another remarkable giant monster, Godzilla, but more on that later.
Whether in control of another evil race, or acting on its own, King Ghidorah would go on to destroy millions of more worlds throughout its bloody history.
God and the Anti God rarely fought one another one on one, and would most often use their minions to fight a war across the universe.
Among the creatures God created to battle the Anti God’s Demons included the Chronovores, creatures who could devour time itself and thus erase the Anti God’s mistakes from the universe. Eventually however the Chronovores would become too powerful and unpredictable and God would banish them to outside of N-Space, though a few would manage to escape and have remained ever since.
A more successful creation of God were the Mothras. The Mothras were an all female race of god like creatures that were sent to protect individual worlds from evil forces. The Mothras also had the power to reproduce asexually too, ensuring that a successor could be created. The Anti God however soon created various gigantic, reptillian, vampiric winged monsters called Gyaos to counteract the Mothras.
Gyaos, one of the Anti God’s vilest creations
The Gyaos and the Mothra’s would battle one another across all of space, and many worlds were destroyed in the crossfire. God stopped making Mothras to ensure that no more worlds would be destroyed in the war, but a few Mothra’s would survive and continue to fight against evil across the universe, whilst one Mothra egg would later crash onto the earth during the age of the Dinosaurs. Mothra’s egg would be preserved for many millions of years under the earth before awakening in modern times.
Another successful creation of God was the Chi who would help to accelerate the evolution of various life forms across the universe.
One of Gods greatest individual champions was a being known simply as Light. A vastly powerful being of pure energy, Light followed Gods orders blindly and helped him battle against monsters such as the Vampires, the Gyaos and the Demons. He literally had no goals or desires other than to obey his God.
The Guardians meanwhile were a trio of sub Godlike creatures that both God and the Anti God created together. Two were created to serve God, a male and a female, whilst another male was created to serve the Anti God. Even more powerful than the Mothras, the Guardians could alter time and were created out of the dark and positive forces that existed within the universe itself.
One of the two Guardians that served God, the female Guardian would later go rogue. It still wanted to help the life forms of N-Space, but it felt that it could so more efficiently on its own.
This Guardian would later find a way to trade one life forms life and influence for another and would travel the universe, wiping out various life forms futures, in order to give them to creatures it considered more deserving. In some cases it traded entire galaxies that it considered useless for others. This Guardian would come to be revered to as death, but it always saw itself as a force for good in the universe.
The two remaining guardians meanwhile would be christened the white and black guardian respectively.
God and the Anti God would eventually face one another in a one on one fight in our galaxy (or rather N-Space’s version of it.)
The battle destroyed various planets, but eventually God was able to defeat the Anti God who retreated to earth to recover. Many believe that it was the devastation caused by this battle that convinced God not to interfere directly in his creations lives.
The earth at that point was in the early stages of human development, long after the Vampires rule had come to an end, but long before the development of Atlantis, or even the arrival of the Daemons. It was seen by the Anti God as being a relatively insignificant planet in the grand scheme of things and therefore the perfect place to hide.
The Anti God would create his final monster whilst on earth. A disembodied spiritual creature similar to, but much more powerful and evil than even the Nestene Consciousness and The Great Intelligence. This monster which he would call Satan, felt a closer connection to the Anti God than many of his other creations. Even calling him “father.”
Eventually God was able to find and defeat the Anti God in his weakened state on earth and banish him to a prison connected to N-Space. Whilst trapped in this prison, the Anti God couldn’t even escape to another universe, and was forced to watch as N-Space carried on without its involvement.
The Anti God however just before his banishment was able to get back at God by cursing him. Satan had created a time code that could allow its proponents to travel backwards and forwards in time. Unlike the later, more refined time travel of the Time Lords it was unstable and could potentially lead to catastrophe. Worse still whenever it was activated, God himself was forced to create the time portal and be forced to be complicit in the reckless and dangerous use of time travel across N-Space.
The Anti God would make sure that his minions would spread the time code to various worlds across the universe leading to the destruction of many worlds. God would try and break the curse throughout the remainder of N-Space’s history, but sadly he would never manage too.
Satan meanwhile would continue to try and free its father, whilst also having fun toying with humanity and causing their suffering in many ways for thousands of years. Eventually however Satans experiments with breaking the barriers between universes would draw in the presence of an alien servant of God. Jesus Christ.
Once regarded as God’s greatest warrior against the Demons and Vampires of outer space, Jesus entered into the mythologies of many planets across the universe, but his final battle would be on earth where he was finally able to defeat Satan.
Sadly Jesus was not able to kill Satan, so instead he sealed the monster deep beneath the earth in a cylinder where it would remain for close to 2000 years before the end of the 20th century.
With the Anti God gone many of his most vile creations would be banished or destroyed and the universe would return to some sense of normality, though many new threats and evils would soon emerge to take the Anti God’s place.
The White and Black Guardian’s power would be reduced by God. They were still able to travel in time, but ultimately they were unable to affect the universe itself, and were forced to work through their minions. God attempted to do the same to Death, but he was never able to catch her, and she would continue to influence N-Space until its end.
God had finally come to the sad conclusion after so many failures that evil would always re-emerge at some point, no matter how hard he tried to stamp it out. God now felt it was best to try and find a way to contain it. As twisted as the Black Guardian was, God felt he was a better choice to maintain the natural order than the Anti God, and so he was allowed to remain.
The Black Guardian would still try and disrupt the natural order for his own reasons, but the White Guardian would always find a way to stop him.
Many of God’s warriors that he had created to battle the Anti God he simply told to try and forge their own way in life now, and many of them did, but others found it difficult without his guidance.
Light in particular almost had a mental breakdown, but eventually he resolved himself to catalogue all of Gods wonderful creatures thinking that would make his father happy. Many believed that Light never fully recovered however and was always somewhat unstable. Light would construct a spaceship complete with a living computer to begin exploring the universe. He also took on an un-named alien to help him in his quest, who he granted immortality to.
On the first planet Light came across however, earth, he discovered much to his horror, that his quest would be pointless as all life forms kept evolving and changing. As soon as his catalogue was finished, then he would have to start again. Light had another breakdown and went into hibernation for millions of years. He would later be awoken in the late 19th Century.
The Time Lords
Truly the greatest civilisation of N-Space, the Time Lords were also among the first intelligent species to evolve in N-Space. The Time Lords who were originally known as the Gallifreyans were overall humanoid in appearance, though their home planet named Gallifrey was many times the size of earth. Many life forms evolved on the surface of the planet besides the Gallifreyans, including giant Dinosaur like creatures called Gargantosaurs.
Before the Gallifreyans rose up to become the dominant race, Gallifrey was a hostile planet filled with many dangerous predators and competing species, including another hostile race of carnivorous humanoids known only as the Toclafane who preyed on Gallifreyans.
The Gallifreyans had highly advanced healing capabilities, which they evolved to deal with the dangers on their world. Over time these healing powers would eventually refine to the point where the Gallifreyans could regenerate their entire bodies whenever they were mortally wounded, though they could only do this 12 times and whenever a Time Lord regenerated their body, it would take on a totally different appearance.
The process of regeneration would also alter a Gallifreyan’s outer personality to some extent too, though their core personality and consciousness would always remain the same and their memories remained intact too.
The Gallifreyans earliest advancements were generally created to protect themselves from the hostile creatures of their own planet, and later the Demons and other monsters of the Anti God who invaded Gallifrey at various points, just as they did many worlds.
The Gallifreyans would wage a war with the Toclafane which they were able to win due to their more advanced technology.
However towards the end of the Gallifreyan and Toclafane war the Toclafane would receive help from one of the Gallifreyan’s greatest enemies in the future. Davros, the evil and mad creator of the Daleks.
At this point the Daleks and the Time Lords had been locked in a cold war for years. Too afraid to launch an all out attack against each other. The Time Lords many years before the war had already attempted to use the Doctor to change the Daleks history, so now Davros was attempting to do the same to the Time Lords by influencing the Toclafane to help overthrow the Gallifreyans.
Fortunately however the Tenth Doctor was sent back by the Time Lords and was able to stop Davros from changing history.
Unfortunately after the Toclafane were defeated, the Gallifreyans would exterminate them all. This genocide would later be covered up in legends of the Time Lords.
Indeed by the time of the Doctor most Time Lords didn’t even believe the Toclafane even existed! They were believed to be nothing more than a bogey man invented to scare children. The Doctor was therefore horrified to see that his people had carried out a genocide against another intelligent race.
After the Toclafane’s extinction, the Gallifreyans would place transduction barriers around their world which prevented any other life forms from entering Gallifrey without their consent. The only creature that would ever manage to break through the force field was King Ghidorah.
Protected from a hostile universe. The Gallifreyans would be free to build a highly advanced and peaceful society, but what would ultimately give them for a short while at least, their dominance over other life forms was the discovery of the secret of time travel.
It was the joint work of the then high president of Gallifrey, Rassilon and Gallifrey’s then leading scientist, Omega that would unlock the secret of time travel. Omega created a stellar manipulator which enabled him to harness the power of a black hole. Omega hoped to use it to create an unlimited power source for Gallifrey. Sadly however whilst Omega’s work would later allow Rassilon to complete harnessing the star that would become known as the Eye of Harmony. Omega himself was lost in the initial attempt.
His ship was sucked through the black hole itself and he was believed dead for many centuries. In truth he survived and continued to exist in the anti matter universe counterpart of N-Space. All alone for thousands of years. Omega would go insane from the solitude and seek vengeance against not only the Gallifreyans, but the rest of creation who he believed had betrayed him.
According to many historical accounts it is believed that Rassilon may have sabotaged Omega’s vessel as he wanted to be seen as the ultimate figure of his people. Whatever the case Rassilon would always harbour a sense of guilt over what became of Omega.
The Eye of Harmony, a compacted black hole was positioned right in the centre of Gallifrey and would provide the Gallifreyans with an unlimited source of energy to construct time vessels which came to be known as TARDIS’. TARDIS stood for Time and Relative Dimensions in Space.
TARDIS’ could not only travel in time and space, but they also had the power to blend into their surroundings, whilst their interiors would always remain the same size and shape.
The Gallifreyans who now became known as the Time Lords at first were mindful of altering their own history, so they made a point not to interfere in the past. Instead they simply used their time travel facilities to explore the universe and catalogue its history.
The Time Lords however would later be drawn into a conflict with the Great Vampires, when the monsters were able to capture a lone TARDIS and turn its occupant into a Vampire. This Vampire would return to Gallifrey where it would go on to infect more Time Lords, leading to the great Vampire plague of Gallifrey.
The Monsters very nearly destroyed Gallifreyan society. Whole cities were wiped out in trying to stop the spread of the Vampires who were even able to infected members of the Gallifreyan high council.
Eventually however after plague was contained Rassilon would launch a war against the Great Vampires. The war lasted for over 100 years during which time billions of Time Lords were slaughtered, but eventually they won out and destroyed the Vampires.
The turning point came when Rassilon invented bow ships which fired massive spears into the Vampires hearts and Raston Warrior Robots who could fire spears from their hands, were lightening fast, and could teleport at will over great distances. A single Raston Warrior Robot was capable of slaughtering hundreds of lesser Vampires with minimum effort.
A Raston Warrior Robot, the greatest Vampire killers ever created.
All but two of the Great Vampires were destroyed, their leader and his most vicious soldier, both of whom escaped through a portal to the pocket universe, known as E-Space. The leader would crash land on a primitive planet, where it took control of its three rulers, turning them into lesser Vampires. These Vampires would then enslave the local population and force them build a rocket which could take their leader back to the stars to conquer more worlds. Fortunately however the renegade Time Lords known as the Doctor and Romana would later finally slay the king of the Vampires by sending its own rocket into the beasts heart.
The second Great Vampire meanwhile would have more luck. It landed on an advanced world called Deitia. Once again Romana would encounter the Vampire, and though she stopped it from converting the entire population. The monster would later escape into space and convert other worlds, building up an empire in E-Space, though Romana would later destroy the Great Vampire on her 13th life.
The destruction of the Great Vampires in N-Space coincided with the final defeat and banishment of the Anti God, and afterwards the Time Lords were hailed as heroes across the universe for destroying the Vampires.
Many races began to worship the Time Lords believing that they came from God himself. Sadly the adulation went to the Time Lord’s heads and they would begin to feel it was their duty to “save” the universe.
The Time Lords would go on to conquer many worlds across the universe and interfere in the histories of many more. They peered into the future of universe and frequently tried to change it to their liking, including wiping out races that they knew would go on to be too dangerous in the future.
No one knows how the history of N-Space would have originally gone had it not been for the Time Lord’s alterations.
Eventually towards the end of his rule Rassilon would come to repent the horrors his people had inflicted on the rest of the universe, and would forbid any Time Lords from interfering in the affairs of other planets again. Believing that they were the most advanced race in all of creation, Rassilon felt that they had a solemn duty not to abuse that power.
Despite this however whilst Rassilon would always be seen a great figure in Time Lord society. He remained a polarising figure throughout the rest of the cosmos. On some planets he was still worshipped as a hero (albeit a flawed hero) for vanquishing the Vampires, whilst on others he was condemned as a monster for his actions during the later years of his rule. Rassilon would spend the last few centuries of his 13th and final life in the tower of Rassilon, secluded in the Death Zone.
The Death Zone was a giant wasteland in the heart of Gallifrey. An area that had once been home to the Time Lord’s mightiest civilisation. It had been destroyed by Rassilon himself after being overrun with Vampires. During the reign of the Time Lords, they would transform the ruins of the old city into an arena, where they would force life forms they had abducted from all over the universe to fight each other for their own amusement.
The Death Zone for many represented the ultimate corruption of the Time Lords, and of course by the end of Rassilon’s time the Death Zone had been closed to all, and the practice of abducting other life forms made illegal on Gallifrey.
Rassilon chose the Death Zone as his final place to stay so that he would be reminded of his failure and corruption. He was later buried in his tower in the Death Zone. Rassilon would also however, just before his death set up “the game of Rassilon” which supposedly granted whoever completed it immortal life and allowed them to rule over Gallifrey forever.
In truth however the game was set up as a trap to lure out other greedy Time Lords who would seek to abuse their power just like he once had, and whilst it would grant them immortal life, it would be as a statue in his tower!
The Time Lords would not always follow Rassilon’s non intervention policy. The Time Lord President Morbius who ruled many centuries later during the reign of King Ghidorah’s attack believed that the Time Lords had to conquer all other life forms to ensure their safety. He argued that if they didn’t then one race would eventually surpass them. Morbius further argued that the Time Lords would rule benevolently, but that another race might not, so they owed it to other life forms to be their masters.
Many believe that Morbius was simply pushed over the edge by Ghidorah’s attack however.
Morbius would cause a civil war on Gallifrey which would kill more people than any other in the planets history. After Morbius was driven from Gallifrey, he would gather an army of creatures from various planets, who would be referred to as “the scum of the galaxy” and use them to try and conquer the Gallifrey and other worlds before he was finally defeated.
Morbius would be executed on Karn, though it would later be discovered that a student of his from the future, Professor Solon had been able to teleport his brain from his body into a tank, where it would remain preserved for years whilst Solon built his master a new body.
Though Solon was successful, the Doctor (who was from the future,) was sent to investigate by the Celestial Intervention Agency and would succeed in destroying Morbius with the aid of the Sisterhood of Karn before the former President could cause more havoc throughout the universe.
Morbius’ reign of terror finally comes to an end.
The Celestial Intervention Agency meanwhile were a secret order of Time Lords created above and beyond the high council themselves at some point after Morbius’ rule. The CIA would send in secret agents to monitor important events in planets histories to change them for the Time Lords (and the greater universe at large’s) benefit.
The CIA were not desperate to rule any planets like Morbius or Rassilon had been at his worst. They genuinely believed that their actions were for the greater good of the universe, but they were not above using dubious means to achieve it.
Other than the CIA however most Time Lords would spend their 13 lives on Gallifrey just as Rassilon had wished, though there would be a few renegades from time to time.
Some of these renegades were benevolent, others were villainous, and others simply enjoyed being able to cruise through time and space, sampling the best from various cultures across all of N-Space.
The most famous of all renegade Time Lords however was one who would come to be known as The Doctor.
The 13 regenerations of the renegade Time Lord known as the Doctor.
The Doctor’s early life is shrouded in mystery. Indeed throughout all of his travels no one would ever discover his real name and identity. A few scant details have been discovered about his upbringing and life on Gallifrey, but ultimately much of his past and even who he was is still unknown and will likely always be. The Doctor despite having a massive influence on the history of the universe generally tended to make sure that his presence was not known in the important events he became involved in. Very few species were even aware he existed.
However many races such as the Daleks, the Cybermen and the Sontarans would come to fear the Doctor, making him a legendary figure in some areas of the cosmos.
It is known that the Doctor was born to a high class family in the Gallifreyan countryside. He was apparently born 100 or so years after Morbius’ reign as the President. It was a period of great recovery for the Time Lords after their recent hardships and was later seen as a golden age.
As a boy the Doctor used to play through the long red grass with his siblings. He was apparently a very active and inquisitive child who would often go exploring through the long stretch of countryside outside his parents estate. Much to his parents annoyance, he would frequently get lost in the woods or caves and get himself into trouble.
Despite being close with his family, the Doctor was according to some accounts a somewhat lonely boy with few friends elsewhere. The Doctors best friend during his childhood was apparently an old and wise Time Lord hermit named K’Nappo who was nearing the end of his regeneration cycle.
K’Nappo had worked for the Celestial Intervention Agency in his prime. He had actually worked for a special branch devoted to tracking down supernatural creatures, such as lesser Vampires and Demons throughout all of time and space.
K’Nappo would frequently tell the young Doctor exciting stories about some of his adventures (though he never told the Doctor how he had heard these stories and he of course embellished them somewhat.)
Still they both excited and terrified the young Time Lord and K’Nappo would go on to have a profound effect on the Doctor in many other areas of his life.
The Doctor would attend the most prestigious Time Lord Academy where he was taught by Borusa, who would eventually go on to become one of the most successful (though controversial) Time Lord Presidents.
Whilst studying at the Academy the Doctor would become friends with another future renegade who would come to be known as The Master in years to come. The Master and the Doctor bonded over a love of science and exploration. The two did not buy into the received wisdom among the Time Lords that all life in the universe had been catalogued. They often mocked the high council of the Time Lords as being stuffy and old fashioned, and sought to prove them wrong. The Doctor didn’t admit to anyone, not the Master or his family, but he really wanted to explore the universe and find out if the Time Lords really knew everything.
It would have seemed suicidal to defy the Time Lords, but the Doctor always harboured it as a secret ambition. Little did the Doctor know that his friend the Masters ambitions were far greater!
Ultimately the Doctor and the Master would soon drift apart after leaving the Academy.
The first known picture of the Doctor during his youth.
After leaving the academy the Doctor would later marry and have children. Not much is known about his family life, but tragically at some point his family were killed in a disaster (caused by the eye of harmony malfunctioning, though no one knew it at the time) which struck the Gallifreyan city they lived in.
The Doctor would be forced to take in his only grand daughter Susan, then just an infant and would look after her for most of the rest of his first incarnations life.
At some point after his family’s death the Doctor decided to finally fulfil his life long ambition to explore the universe. He had put this dream aside to look after his family throughout most of his first incarnation’s life. Now however that they were gone and there wasn’t really anything else tying him to Gallifrey, the Doctor with Susan’s help stole an old, obsolete, type 40 TARDIS and began exploring the Universe.
He knew that doing so meant he could never return to Gallifrey as he would now be a renegade, but again as there was nothing tying him back to Gallifrey, neither the Doctor nor Susan cared. The Doctor also stole two powerful Time Lord artifacts before leaving. The Hand of Omega and the Nemesis statue, both of which he stole simply as an insurance in case the Time Lords came after him.
The Doctor in his second incarnation remembers the family he lost fondly whilst helping his companion Victoria through a similar loss.
The Doctor was relatively old when he first left Gallifrey and initially he simply sought to explore.
As time went on however the Doctor would soon become involved in the affairs of many planets including most notably Earth, which he developed an extreme fondness for.
In time the Doctor would go on to become one of N-Space’s greatest champions and defenders, battling various monsters throughout all of time and space such as the Daleks, the Cybermen and the Sontarans.
The Doctor would eventually separate from Susan after the two helped to save humanity from the Daleks in the 22nd century. Susan decided to remain on earth with David Campbell a Dalek resistance fighter that she had fallen in love with. Susan would in turn go on to be a highly influential figure in earth society too, helping to rebuild humanity after the Dalek invasion. She would also have two children, John and Gillian who the Doctor would later travel with for years.
The Doctor would take on various other companions to assist him in his battles against evil from various other planets, though they would most frequently be from earth. They were usually young women, being in many respects surrogate replacement figures for Susan.
Despite the dangerous lifestyle he led, the Doctor did manage to live through all 13 of his regenerations. They were as follows.
The Doctors original form. The First Doctor was originally just an explorer and like many Time Lords, he was somewhat arrogant and condescending to other life forms that he met (in particular human beings) who he regarded as beneath him.
Still as time went on the Doctor would mellow out, thanks in no small part to the influence of his companions, namely Susan and Ian and Barbara, the first two humans ever to travel with the Time Lord. By the end of his “life” the Doctor had become a genuinely heroic figure, risking his life to defeat enemies such as the Daleks (who he battled many times.)
Nevertheless this Doctor always remained a somewhat grumpy, bad tempered individual, though he would always keep a level head in a crisis, a trait which carried on to future incarnations. He was also ruthless in dealing with his enemies and was more than willing to kill, but only if he had to.
Though old and frail in appearance, the Doctor was as tough as an old turkey and a dangerous enemy to his adversaries.
This Doctor travelled initially with Susan, and Ian and Barbara, two school teachers from 1960s London. The Doctor abducted them after they stumbled into his TARDIS by mistake. After Susan left, the Doctor would travel with Vicki, a young orphan girl from the 23rd century. He would also travel with Steven Taylor an astronaut from the far future, Katarina, a former Trojan slave girl, Sara Kingdom, a member of the special space security service from earth’s future, Dorothea Chaplet, a young girl from 1960s London, and John and Gillian, his two great grandchildren, who were sent to him by Susan to protect them from the Daleks in the future.
The First Doctors final two companions were a young couple from 1960s London, Ben and Polly, who would also be the first to witness the Doctor regenerate.
The First Doctors greatest enemies were the Daleks. He had many dealings with them, including facing the monsters on their home planet of Skaro, where he prevented them from destroying the Thals. He also defeated their invasion of earth in the 22nd century, and foiled their attempts to construct the Time Destructor, a super weapon capable of ageing planets into nothing but dust. The Daleks would go on to become the greatest enemies of the Doctor overall, being one of his few many enemies to face him in every single incarnation.
Aside from the Daleks, this incarnation also faced foes such as the Meddling Monk and the Celestial Toymaker, as well as the Cybermen who were responsible for his first regeneration.
Somewhat more easy going and laid back than his grumpy predecessor, the Second Doctor was also a lot more manipulative and crafty. He would often feign helplessness and incompetence to lure his enemies into a false sense of security.
He was every bit as willing to kill his enemies and in some ways was actually more ruthless than the first Doctor. He was shown to be willing to wipe out entire species, including the Daleks and the Cybermen.
Still overall this Doctor had a much more compassionate personality and devoted himself to battling evil more than the first.
This Doctor tended to wear clothes that were too big for him and had a somewhat more shambolic appearance. He also had a greater fondness for music and enjoyed playing on his recorder.
In the later years of his life this incarnation of the Doctor would be forced to work for the Celestial Intervention Agency to avoid punishment from the High Council of the Time Lords. However they would later hand him over to the High Council when he proved to be too difficult to control.
This Doctor inherited Ben and Polly from the First Doctor and would later pick up the Jacobite, Jamie McCrimmon. Jamie would go on to become one of the Doctors best friends and stayed with him throughout his early travels, until the Time Lords would force Jamie to return to earth. The two would later reunite however in 1960s London.
The Doctor also travelled with Victoria who he developed a very close fatherly relationship with after her father had been killed by the Daleks, and Zoe, a young, brilliant scientist from earth’s future. During his days with the Celestial Intervention Agency he would also resume travelling with John and Gillian too.
This Doctors most recurring enemies where the Cybermen who he faced many times. He also fought the Great Intelligence, the Ice Warriors and of course the Daleks multiple times too.
This Doctor was exiled to earth by the Time Lords after they successfully captured him in his second incarnation. The Time Lords accepted that the Doctor had his place in the battle against evil, but not wanting a renegade to go unpunished, they not only forced a regeneration, but forced him to remain on the earth in the early 70s for a period of time. (They also exiled him to earth as they had foreseen a great time of catastrophe for the planet that only he could deal with.)
The Doctor would remain on earth for many years, during which time he worked with UNIT. More violent than his previous two incarnations. This Doctor was very charismatic, dashing and brave, instantly commanding an air of authority wherever he went. The Third Doctor also had a taste for theatrics and didn’t suffer fools gladly.
It was during this time that the Doctor would encounter his old former friend the Master, who would go on to be his single greatest enemy.
The Doctors exile would be lifted near the end of his third incarnations life, when he (along with his first and second incarnations) defeated Omega who attempted to get his revenge on the rest of the universe by unleashing anti matter from his prison into it.
Even when his exile was lifted however, the Third Doctor would still spend much of his time on earth, having developed a greater fondness for it than his predecessors.
The Third Doctor primarily worked alongside Brigadier Alistair Gordon Lethbridge Stewart whilst he was exiled to earth. Though their relationship was tense at first, the two soon became best friends. The Doctor would go on to meet the Brigadier in every incarnation.
Aside from the Brigadier, this Doctor also worked alongside the scientist Liz Shaw, during his exile on earth. He would also work with Jo Grant and investigative journalist Sarah Jane Smith, both of whom would travel with him at different points once his exile was lifted.
This Doctor’s main enemy was the first incarnation of the Master, though he also faced the Daleks many times too. He also faced such enemies as the Sontarans, the Silurians, the Autons and the Sea Devils.
A more eccentric and outwardly alien incarnation than his immediate predecessor, though just as charismatic, dashing and commanding. This Doctor was desperate to begin exploring time and space again.
Arguably the most ruthless of all Doctors in dealing with his enemies. This incarnation nevertheless developed a closer bond to his companions than any previous version. He could also be somewhat childish and petulant however. This Doctor had a real love for Jelly babies, a trait which ran through other incarnations, but was strongest with the Fourth Doctor.
Much like the First Doctor he seemed more interested in exploring the universe than in being a hero. He was often forced into helping out by some higher power, including both the Time Lords and the White Guardian himself.
Still despite this he was just as brave and noble as his predecessors and ironically was involved in some of the Doctors biggest battles, including stopping Sutekh the destroyer from escaping and preventing the Black Guardian from assembling the Key to Time.
This Doctor travelled with Sarah Jane Smith, Leela, a savage warrior woman from a far flung earth colony, the Time Lady Romana, Adric, a stowaway during the Doctors brief visit to E-Space, and Nyssa the last survivor of the planet Traken.
This Doctors two main adversaries were the Master and Davros, though he also faced other old foes such as the Cybermen and the Sontarans.
A more sensitive and vulnerable Doctor. The 5th Doctor had a love for cricket and was somewhat more energetic than previous versions.
He was every bit as cunning as previous incarnations, though he tended to feel the suffering of those around him more and at times could let it overwhelm him. Still whenever his companions or loved ones were threatened he wouldn’t hesitate to kill an enemy.
He travelled with Adric (who was sadly killed by the Cybermen, being the first companion the Doctor had lost in many centuries. Adric’s death would have a huge effect on the Doctor.) Nyssa, Teegan (an Australian air hostess), Turlough an alien minion of the Black Guardian who eventually turned on his former master, and Peri Brown, a young American woman from the 80s.
The Fifth Doctors most recurring adversaries meanwhile were the Tremas incarnation of the Master, the Cybermen, the Demonic entity known as the Mara, and the Black Guardian.
A more unstable incarnation due to the traumatic circumstances of the 5th Doctors regeneration. Many believe that the 6th Doctor never truly stabilised. Whilst all of the Doctors were willing to kill, the 6th Doctor seemed somewhat more excessively violent than many other incarnations. Dressed in garish clothes. He was rude, egotistical and obnoxious to almost everyone he came into contact with, even his friends and companions. Many around him found it difficult to like the 6th Doctor at first, but as time went on, deep down he proved ironically to be one of the most heroic and caring Doctors, often using his bluster to throw people off his real intentions.
The 6th Doctor reacts with disgust to his people’s actions.
The 6th Doctor would travel with Peri the longest, and later Melanie Bush.
His main foes were Davros, the Daleks, the demented and sadistic Sil, and the Valeyard an evil version of the Doctor created during his 12th and 13th incarnations.
Initially a more clownish and light hearted incarnation, the 7th Doctor soon revealed himself to be a more darker, manipulative and ruthless individual than other incarnations. Desperate to make up for what he felt were past mistakes. This Doctor was fond of using people around him like pieces on a chess board.
Much like his second incarnation, this Doctor was shown to be willing to wipe out entire species for the greater good and attempted to finish his archenemies, the Master and Davros for good.
The 7th Doctor would travel with Mel, Ace, a teenager from 80s London, and Rona, a cat burglar from the 60s.
His archenemy was Fenric, an ancient and powerful Demonic child of the Anti God.
Much like the 5th Doctor, the 8th incarnation of the Time Lord was a more sensitive and caring soul. Somewhat shaken by how ruthless he had become in his 7th persona, the 8th Doctor was more of a byronesque, dashing figure who tried to show compassion to some of his worst enemies.
The 8th Doctor would travel with the self styled Edwardian adventuress Charley, an alien named Distrii, humans from the 20th century, Lucie and Sam, and a man from the 25th century named James who sadly became the host for the Master.
He also towards the end of his life travelled with the hologram known as Ace Rimmer, and the notorious outlaw from the 24th century, Kerr Avon.
His archenemy was the James incarnation of the Master.
A somewhat more sardonic, sarcastic, and grumpy Doctor than his immediate predecessor. This Doctor was a somewhat bitter individual at first. He was resentful that no matter how hard he tried, so many of his worst enemies, such as the Daleks, the Master and the Cybermen still persisted.
He was also bitter at the Time Lords for frequently putting so much responsibility on his shoulders, whilst never accepting any of their own. He generally tended to shun all other members of his kind to an even greater extent than before.
Despite this however this Doctor was fiercely protective of his companions and had a somewhat greater artistic flair than many of his predecessors.
The 9th Doctors 3 main companions were Dana, a young woman from the 90s whose little sister had been abducted by aliens when she was young. Dana would initially travel with the Doctor to try and find her. She would ultimately be successful in doing so.
He also travelled with Jaime, a young woman from the 14th Century, whose family had been killed by the plague, and finally a 3000 model android woman from the future named Lenia.
His archenemies were the Daleks, and the Zystregia, a race of monsters who originated from within a white hole and who could control time to a certain extent.
The Doctors longest lived incarnation. This Doctor was the most outwardly friendly and kindest of all his incarnations. He was a very eccentric, happy, and energetic individual who lived his life to the fullest.
Knowing that he was nearing the end of his regeneration cycle, this Doctor was determined to enjoy his life above all else. He loved collecting and preserving pieces of art, music and literature that would have otherwise been lost to time.
He was also a great trencherman and enjoyed sampling the best food from across all of time and space. He didn’t mind putting on weight as he would just regenerate into a skinnier body at a later date.
Whilst doing his best to enjoy his life. This Doctor still retained his strong sense of injustice and despite his kind, compassionate nature to his friends, was extremely ruthless in dealing with his enemies. He never saw himself as ruthless however. Simply as practical.
This Doctor inherited Lenia from the 9th Doctor, though as the longest lived incarnation he had by far and away the most companions.
Among the Tenth Doctor’s other companions included Alison, a great scientist from the 31st century who wanted to explore other times (finding her own era where everything had seemingly been discovered rather boring.) Enesta, a Comanche woman from the 13th century, Jasmine, a woman from the 20th century who had been experimented on by the Daleks as a young girl. Ainslee, a young woman from the 21st century who had become lost in another universe through a rip between realities whilst exploring Europe, only to be rescued by the Doctor. Ainslee loved travelling, and was only too happy to join the Doctor on his travels.
Another of the Tenth Doctors most notable companions was Doctor Sarah Page, a woman from another universe, I-Space who had been trapped in her earth’s future.
On I-Space’s version of earth, anomalies opened up in time and space which allowed creatures to pass from one time to the next. Sarah had been part of a team in the 21st century to try and contain these anomalies, known as the ARC. She had been presumed dead on a dangerous mission into the future where she was attacked by a savage, mutated predator.
In truth however she survived, albeit she was badly wounded. She would later found by the Doctor who helped her recover and then took her on as his companion for many years, before she would come to settle in the 31st century of N-Space.
Sarah Page, a companion of the Tenth Doctor who originated from another universe.
The Tenth Doctor would also travel with Elena, the daughter of his old friends, Philip J Fry and Turanga Leela. Elena had taken after her father (and uncle Bender) in that she was more of a slacker and lazy growing up, but over the course of her travels with the Doctor she would mature and become a great hero like her parents. She would also meet her husband on her journey’s with the Doctor. Her future husband named Yarox came from trillions of years in the future, when humanity was struggling to survive, and believed that they might very well be the last life forms left in the universe. Yarox joined the Doctor to see the universe when it was young and thriving, as well as visit the planet his ancestors came from.
He and Elena would eventually stop travelling with the Doctor when Elena became pregnant and they would be returned to her time in the 31st century. The Doctor would attend their wedding, though he and Bender often argued over who the godfather of Elena’s child was.
Bender wasn’t as good a role model for Elena as the Doctor would later be. (Note: From a real world perspective, this drawing was done by Spider-Matt on Deviant Art. Check out his stuff its great.)
The Tenth Doctor would also take on a young woman from the boxer rebellion named Tsin Tu and a soldier from the first world war named Harrison as his companions, as well as a former 1960s model named Lucy and and later a young man named Baxter from the 19th century who the Doctor rescued from the satanic mills.
The Daleks and the Master were the main enemies of this Doctor. It was during this Doctors time that the Daleks would become a major enemy of the Doctors people, the Time Lords.
A deadly serious incarnation who was considered to be the most humorless version of the Doctor.
His hatred of the Master was greater than in previous incarnations due to the villains slaughter of the Doctors latest companions at the end of his 10th life.
Aside from the Master this Doctor’s archenemies were Scratchman and the Devourer.
The Devoure was a disembodied spirit, created by the Anti God himself. It was similar to the Great Intelligence and the Nestenes. The Devourer however had no other motives except to eat. It always preferred its prey to be alive however.
The Devourer had the power to possess dead bodies and it would travel from world to world slowly taking over the dead and using them to wipe out the dominant species. The monster would plague the 11th Doctor many times, and even be responsible for his reegeneration.
Whilst the 11th Doctor may have seemed a strong, at times even violent and dangerous hero, underneath he was quite vulnerable as he worried that his entire life had been worthless.
This Doctor travelled with Amber, a firey flame haired woman from 60s Glasgow (who would be his longest serving companion.) Leona Oliver, a noble woman whose family had been slaughtered after the battle of 1066 (both of these young women travelled with the Doctor at the same time.)
Amber, the 11th Doctor’s longest serving companion.
The Doctor also travelled with Farah a young woman from Haiti in the 21st century, and later Emilia, a young student from the 21st century.
A somewhat more pessimistic and brooding incarnation of the Doctor. The 12th Doctor having lived through so much loss was quite nihilistic in many of his views and came across as quite cold and unfeeling to those around him.
This Doctor was more confident than his immediate previous incarnation, though despite this he did still treat his companions opinions with respect. This Doctor appeared to be more disassociated from the earth however. He was still fond of humans, but he felt that he had spent too much time on the one planet and aimed to rectify this by discovering as many worlds as he could.
The 12th Doctor initially travelled with Emilia, but he would later pick up new companions, mostly from other worlds, though he did travel with an aged Brigadier Lethbridge Stewart from the late 90s.
One of the most notable companions was Mariala, the daughter of the Doctors archfoe, the Master (who would later suffer a tragic death at her fathers hands.) He also travelled with Iseia, who belonged to one of the first races ever to evolve in N-Space. Her race were certainly the first race to expand into space and helped to elevate other species. Sadly they would be wiped out after a several thousand year history by the Great Vampires. Iseia was devastated to see that nothing remained of her people in the future and would fall into a deep depression, before finally settling on the world of Askeria. After saving it from the Cybermen, Iseia hoped she could help its people recover and ensure that her people’s legacy would live on through them.
The 12th Doctors archenemies were the Cybermen, who he faced more than any other incarnation, and the hideous interdimensional beasts known as the Crevals.
The final incarnation of the Doctor. The 13th Doctor was a wise, dignified figure who didn’t suffer fools gladly. Similar in some respects to the First Doctor, many including the Doctors granddaughter Susan felt he had come full circle.
Having accepted his place in the universe, this Doctor in contrast to his predecessor had a more positive outlook and was proud of all the things he had accomplished and accepted that some evils would always remain in the universe, but there would always be people to fight it.
Nevertheless despite this he also finally succeeded in destroying his two greatest enemies, Davros and the Master.
This Doctor would finally meet his end when battling against his oldest and deadliest enemies, the Daleks. The 13th Doctor died stopping the Daleks from unleashing a weapon that would have destroyed all of time itself.
The Doctor was buried on Gallifrey, with statues of all 13 of his incarnations being erected in his honour. The eulogy to his funeral would be read by the Twelfth incarnation of Romana.
The Doctor would only celebrated on Gallifrey as a hero after his death. Until then so as not to inspire any more renegades the Doctors heroic actions in saving Gallifrey against the likes of Omega and the Master were generally concealed.
The 13th Doctors archenemies were the Daleks, who were at their most dangerous during his time, as well as the final incarnation of the Master (who possessed the body of his great grandson John.)
The 13th Doctors companions meanwhile consisted of a former UNIT soldier who had been dishonorably discharged named Brian, an early human colonist from Mars named Roberta, Journey Blue, a Dalek resistance fighter from the future, and Cosarkia, a Time Lady, and renegade member of the Celestial Intervention Agency who wished to make amends and who would be his final companion.
After the Doctor, the most famous renegade the Time Lord race ever produced was The Master.
Just as with the Doctor, much of the Masters early life is shrouded in mystery. It is known that he and the Doctor were at one point friends and that they went to the same Time Lord Academy together. The two quickly drifted apart after leaving the Academy however.
The Master is believed to have left Gallifrey long before the Doctor. His true name was never revealed, though some believed it was Koschei, others suspect this was just another alias.
The first incarnation of the Master.
The Master initially did not set out to be a villain. The Master believed that the Time Lords, as the most advanced race in the universe had a duty to help other races across the cosmos. Of course he believed that the Time Lords would need to rule other races in order to fix their problems. The Master didn’t see it as ruling however. More guiding lesser races to their true potential.
Since the Time Lords refused to interfere, the Master decided that he would be the one to guide lesser races. The Master at least at first did genuinely believe that he was doing good in the universe and indeed for many centuries he would. Ultimately however underneath his seemingly altruistic facade, the Master, deep down was a megalomaniac. He was a weak, scared little man, who craved power because it was the only way he felt safe and strong.
The first planet the Master took over was the planet of Majos. The Majosians had themselves been invaded by a hostile race of aliens, known as the Raskors. The Raskors were not a great power like the Daleks or the Cybermen, but they were more advanced than the Majosians and ruled them for over 5 centuries. That is until the Master easily overthrew the Raskors.
Naturally he was celebrated as a hero by the Majosians and the Master would soon build them up to being a great society. With his advanced intellect he was able to cure all diseases on their planet, both physical and mental and bring equality between all of their different races too. Of course the fact that he had been able to unite their people against a common enemy helped.
Still even after the Majosians had been defeated the Master was still able to keep them all united and quickly eliminated other problems plaguing their world such as crime, poverty and inequality. Overall the Master was able to build the Majosians up to being the most advanced race in their galaxy in a matter of decades!
Over 100 years of peace would reign on their world and the Master was worshipped as the greatest hero their people had ever seen. Sadly however the Master would later lead the Majosians down a very dark path. He hoped to use the Majosians as his army to conquer other planets across the galaxy. He convinced the Majosians that what they were doing was for the good of all, as ultimately when they ruled these other worlds, they would fix their problems just as the Master had fixed theirs.
The Master would go on to conquer many worlds with the Majosians help. He ruled over a large empire for many decades, but eventually the Majosians empire would collapse and its people fell into a state of anarchy. The Master blamed the Majosians themselves for being a weak race and would abandon them to the many vengeful species that had broken free from their rule. The Majosians entire planet was laid waste and the few survivors of their race would come to curse the Master, viewing him as a Demon who tempted them to darkness and destroyed their race.
After the failure of the Majosians, the Master would seek to make a new planet the centre of his perfect empire. Much like the Doctor, he developed a particular fondness for earth and believed that humanity had the potential to be the race who would help him rule the universe.
The Master would become even more interested in earth when he learned that his old friend, the Doctor was exiled there. The Doctors reputation as a renegade had begun to outshine the Masters in some corners of the galaxy, despite his best attempts to keep hidden. The Master was desperate to prove he was superior and the villain always loved a challenge. He hoped he could conquer the earth when the Doctor was there. The fact that the Doctor had been placed on earth by the Time Lords themselves to protect it just made the challenge all the more exciting for the Master. He would be proving his superiority to both the Master and the Time Lords.
The Master was ultimately foiled in his first attempt to take over the earth (with the aid of the Nestene consciousness) by the Third Doctor, but the two would have many more battles with each other for the fate of humanity. Though the Doctor was always able to foil the Masters plans to conquer humanity, the Doctor was never able to finish the villain for good, which he wanted to many times. The Master would always go free, leaving a huge body count behind him.
The Master claimed that all of the evil he did was a regrettable necessity as ultimately when he ruled things would be better. However there were times even in his first incarnation where his cruelty was clearly for no reason other than petty vengeance or sadism, such as when he attempted to provoke a war between the Sea Devils and humanity just to spite the Doctor, who was fond of both races.
The Master initially believed that the Doctor, being another renegade who had been mistreated by the Time Lords could perhaps become a potential ally and help him shape earth’s history for the better, but the Doctor refused to help him and the two despite having once been friends, became the bitterest of enemies. The Master would become utterly obsessed with not just destroying the Doctor, but making him suffer and proving his superiority.
The First Master would ultimately be responsible for selling his people’s secrets out to the Daleks. The monsters had successfully captured the villain whilst ironically looking for the Doctor himself. The Master was able to buy his life by supplying the Daleks with Time Lord technology and information about their race. He also even attempted to provoke a war between the earth and Draconian empires to aid the Daleks. When this plan failed thanks to the Doctors influence, the Daleks would attempt to destroy the Master and though he managed to escape, the Daleks dispatched a time vessel to pursue him throughout all of history.
The Master would settle on the planet Terserious, where he planned to create a weapon that could allow him to destroy the Daleks once and for all. Unfortunately the monsters were able to infiltrate his base and in the resulting struggle the Masters weapon went off, destroying all life on the planet, except for the Master himself, who survived, thanks to his Time Lord powers of regeneration.
The Master however was aged through all 13 of his incarnations as a result of the blast and left in a hideous, burned, emaciated form.
The Master in his second/13th body.
The Master was pushed over the edge and became even more obsessed with destroying the Doctor who he blamed for all of his misfortunes. The Master at one point even claimed that only his hatred of the Doctor kept him alive in the state of perpetual agony he was now in.
The Master was eventually able to postpone his life by transplanting his consciousness into the body of a man named Tremas. In Tremas’ body, the Master would continue to plague the Doctor for many years to come. He even succeeded in killing the 4th Doctor.
The Master still desired power, but by this point he dropped any facade that it was for a greater good and was a more flamboyantly sadistic villain.
The Master in Tremas’ body on the planet of the Cheetah people.
The Time Lord would only further be dragged into madness when he was infected with the Cheetah virus that brought out all of his dark and twisted urges to the fore.
Following this the Master would later be captured by the Daleks a second time who vaporised his Tremas body. However his mind survived as a disembodied spirit and would later take control of a human male named Bruce (after escaping Skaro in the Doctors TARDIS when the Doctor came to collect his remains for burial back on Gallifrey.) The Masters consciousness would force the Doctors TARDIS to land on earth before he took over Bruce’s body.
The Master in Bruce’s body.
In this body the Master would attempt to steal the Doctors remaining regenerations (the Doctor was on his 8th body) but the villain was subsequently sucked into the core of the TARDIS itself, destroying his new body.
His consciousness would survive however and would later possess the Doctors TARDIS. The Master would use the Doctors TARDIS to torture him and and his companions, before trying to take over the Doctors body. Ultimately however the Master instead was only able to take over one of the Doctors companions. A human named James who came from the 27th century.
The Master in James’ body.
After taking over James’ body, the Master would escape the TARDIS, using its power to deposit himself across time and space to a primitive world called Lasorik that he had developed an interest in on his travels, much like earth.
The Master would take over this planet and turn the Lasoriks into his soldiers, just like he had done with Majorians. The Lasoriks however had always been a race of pitiless conquerors, but they had been defeated by an alliance of planets. Thanks to the Masters actions they would rise up and become a major power in the Galaxy yet again. The Master would frequently return to them when he needed more help.
The Master knew that he couldn’t possibly hope for one empire to spread over the universe, and so he instead attempted to create various empires, all of which would be loyal to him. He succeeded in creating other small empires, though none of them as large as the Lasoriks, save for a new and improved race of Daleks that he created, (with the aid of Zolfian and Yarvelling, but more on that later.)
As time went on the villain would be forced to steal more bodies to prolong his own miserable existence. The next body the Master would steal would be that of a former soldier from the far future when humanity was at war with a hostile race of robots. The Master promised the soldier whose entire life had been taken up with the war, that he could defeat the robots and save humanity if he let the Master possess him.
The Master did keep his word and helped humanity, but only so that he could make them his army and for years in the soldiers body he was hailed as a hero and very nearly convinced humanity to conquer other worlds, by convincing them it was the only way they could ever be safe from invasion again. Fortunately however the Doctor foiled his plans, but this Master in this body would still be celebrated as one of earth’s greatest heroes for saving humanity for centuries to come.
The Master in the body of the old soldier.
The Master would later steal the body of another time lord, a member of the Celestial Intervention agency who he successfully lured into a trap.
In this form the Master would gain access to all of the CIA’s secrets and became a much more dangerous adversary than ever before. He very nearly succeeded in erasing the Doctor from history and fixing his own timeline to the way he wanted it, where he ruled over a Time Lord empire, but he was defeated and his actions undone by the Tenth Doctor and 12th Romana.

This Master would also be responsible for the death of his daughter Marilia. During the later years of his rule over Majosia, the Master in order to gain support among the masses married a Majosian woman. Despite all he had done for them, the Masters support was depleting at that point due to their empire falling. The Master did not care about his wife or their daughter at all. They were simply a means to an end, and when the empire fell, the Master abandoned them both to their fate.
Marilia survived however. She came to believe her fathers lies that he told her just before leaving, that the Majosians had become corrupted and that he had to leave in order to protect her.
She came to believe her father would return to her people one day and save them. Marilia would live much longer due to her time lord heritage, and would later take over her people. With her much greater intellect, she was able to create a vastly powerful weapon that could strike back at the aliens they used to rule. The aliens had eventually stopped attacking Majosia, but sadly after taking them over, Marillia was desperate to launch a new war against her people’s enemies.
The Master and the Doctor would arrive on Majosia by accident, but when the Master saw his daughter in charge, he attempted to manipulate her into rebuilding his former empire.
The Doctor however would convince Marilia to turn against the Master, rather than start a pointless war.
Sadly the Master in order to survive soon reprogrammed the weapon to destroy Majosia. Despite the Doctors best efforts, he was unable to shut it down and the planet was consumed in the fire (as were thousands of other worlds.) The Doctor was able to get Marilia to safety in the TARDIS. She begged him to take her on permanently as his companion so she could make amends and get revenge on her father.
The Doctor was unsure, but ultimately agreed, and she would become one of his longest serving and most loyal companions. Sadly in a later battle with her father she would sacrifice herself in order to save the Doctor. The Master did not care about her death at all. He viewed her as nothing more than a burden and a disappointment to him.
The Doctor meanwhile would greatly mourn her death which would only increase his hatred of the Master.
The two’s feud would reach new levels however when the Master killed the Doctors great grandson, John.
The Master kidnapped both of the Doctors great grandchildren, John and Gillian in an attempt to lure his nemesis into a trap. With Susan’s help however the Doctor managed to save Gillian, and mortally wounded the Master with a weapon that deterred his new body’s ability to regenerate. Unfortunately however the Master still had John as his prisoner and would transplant his consciousness into John’s body.

The Doctor would in turn become utterly obsessed with destroying the Master. The Master did not fear the Doctor however and would often taunt him over the fact that eventually the Doctor would run out of regenerations, whilst the Master would continue to steal bodies.
The 13th and final Doctor would finally destroy the Master for good. The two’s final battle happened on the planet Melessario in the far future near the end of N-Space.
By this stage only a handful of life forms existed in the universe including humanity. Desperately clinging to life as their galaxy and most of those around them had burned away. The Master converted Melessario into a sanctuary that would be safe from the death of N-Space.
Thanks to technology he had stolen from the Time Lords and various other worlds throughout his travels across all of time, the Master was able to make Melessario out of sync with the rest of the universe.
He was also able to place a transduction barrier around the planet, just like Gallifrey, and place a dying star at the center of the world, just like the eye of harmony which gave the planet a virtually limitless supply of energy.
Melessario was a paradise, but the Master would only allow life forms to live on it if they swore allegiance to him. The Master hoped to build an army made up from the ultimate survivors. For so long the Master had tried to build an empire from a race he believed to have potential only to be disappointed when they weren’t as powerful or resourceful as he had hoped. In fact almost all of the empire’s he had built over the centuries had crumbled sooner or later.
The Master decided that he would let the universe choose the most resourceful species for him and so he went to almost the very end of the universe’s history to see which species had survived for the longest.
The Master hoped to unite them all as his army on Melessario, after which they would then wait until this universe finally burned itself out, with the Master believing that his technology would allow Melessario to survive even the death of the universe itself.
The Masters army would then re-emerge into the new universe where they would conquer it and be the dominant power throughout its history. They would then using the Masters technology survive the death of the next universe, and go on to conquer the next one and so on, and so on, effectively becoming the dominant force throughout all of eternity.
The Master after seeing that the universe would finish did not want to merely create an empire that would eventually crumble into dust like everything else. Instead he wanted to create an empire that would persist for all eternity, shaping each universe in his own twisted vision.
(Of course little did the Master know that N-Space would simply repeat itself forever.)
The 13th Doctor would attempt to stop the Master’s plans by convincing his archfoe’s new people to turn on him.
Many of the last life forms of N-Space (which included the last of humanity) had come to see the Master as a god, as he had not only succeeded in protecting them, but had promised them that they would be masters of the next universe
The Master was still a cruel leader however, forcing many of his subjects to regularly undergo trials and tests to make them better warriors for his conquest of the next universe. Those who failed were banished to outside the safety of Melessario to die. The Master also performed horrific experiments on many of his subjects to ensure that they would be more powerful too, which killed millions.
Many of the Masters subjects were perfectly happy to go through his trials as they had come to believe his ideas of them being the chosen races to rule the universe and wanted to prove themselves.
Still fortunately there were resistance groups who hoped to overthrow the Master and simply live on Melessario in peace. With their help, the 13th Doctor would finally defeat his old nemesis.
The Doctor finally killed the Master by using his own technology to send his arch foe back into the dying N-Space. The Doctor didn’t actually see him die, but he always considered this to be the final end of his former friend, turned enemy and there are no records of the Master after this. Unfortunately however the Master, not wanting his world to go on without him, programmed the same technology which protected Melessario to destroy it if anything happened to him.
Whilst many of the various life forms fled, the Doctor was able to shut down the self destruct device and saved Melessario. Unfortunately however much of the Masters technology was still lost in the explosion. The planet would not be able to survive the death of N-Space now, but the forcefield would still protect the planet from the dying universe for many millions of years to come. The last life forms of N-Space, including the last of humanity would continue to live on Melessario until the end of N-Space (or rather this version of it.)
Sadly they never encountered the Mesrak’s as the forcefield also hid the planet from the rest of the universe.
The Masters criminal activities on earth in the 70s were covered up for years, but after the Cyber invasion in 1986 when aliens were made public knowledge, the Masters activities were made public and this short was broadcast in the year 1993 to fully alert the population.
Another famous renegade Time Lord, or rather Time Lady was Romana.
Romana was originally sent by the High Council to help the Doctor find the pieces of the Key to Time. The two were successful, but Romana would stay with the Doctor and regenerate along the way.
The two’s relationship became very close, with Romana becoming arguably the Doctors best friend throughout all of his lives alongside Brigadier Alistair Gordon Lethbridge Stewart.
Eventually however Romana would leave the Doctor to go exploring E-Space, a universe adjacent to N-Space (that is also reborn over and over again.) Romana would go on to become the greatest hero and champion of E-Space. Occasionally Romana would return to N-Space to help the Doctor or deal with some other threat too. Romana was able to explore E-Space by growing her own TARDIS from a piece of the Doctors TARDIS, that she had stolen whilst journeying with him.
Romana’s own TARDIS could change its outer shape unlike the Doctors and was a lot more well behaved and predictable than the Doctors.
Just like the Doctor, Romana despite also living a fairly dangerous life, still managed to live throughout all 13 of her incarnations.
Romana came from a fairly privileged background on Gallifrey. From the beginning she showed a natural aptitude towards science and technology. Her family expected great things for her and she was the golden girl at the most prestigious Time Lord Academy.
However much like the Doctor before her, Romana grew bored of Gallifrey. She felt that there was nothing new on the planet to study and instead wanted to learn about other life forms and cultures.
Noting her interest, the Celestial Intervention Agency assigned Romana to assist the Doctor in obtaining the segments of the Key to Time before the Black Guardians agents were able to.
As a result of her upbringing, the first Romana was somewhat condescending, arrogant and full of herself. At times her technical knowledge did surpass even the Doctors (something which she always enjoyed rubbing in.) However the first Romana was also somewhat naive and inexperienced, such as when she almost fell for the Black Guardian’s deception.
Still from the beginning she proved to be a brave and resourceful hero and she and the Doctor were ultimately successful in stopping the Black Guardian and saving the universe. Whilst she and the Doctor had a positive working relationship from the start, the first Romana’s serious and stern demeanor sometimes clashed with the 4th Doctors more carefree, eccentric persona.
Romana’s second incarnation was more eccentric, fun loving, and humorous than her immediate predecessor. Her relationship with the Doctor was also much closer and more intense. (In an alternate timeline the two’s relationship did become more than simply platonic.)
This Romana was somewhat more bold and adventurous than her predecessor. Nevertheless she was still somewhat naive like Romana 1 and seemed to be a more sensitive, emotional individual than the stern and logical Romana 1.
Whilst this Romana was closer to the Doctor, she soon desired to escape from his shadow and make a name for herself in the cosmos. She would find her chance when the two visited E-Space. E-Space was an entire new universe that none of her kind had ever set foot in before and she was eager to discover its secrets.
Romana 3 was much friendlier, kinder and sweeter on the surface than the first two Romana’s. Less eccentric than her immediate predecessor, but just as eager for adventure. Romana 3 was the first incarnation who was on her own and she somewhat struggled at first, but by the end of this incarnations “life” she had fully matured into a capable and resourceful hero in her own right.
This Romana went out of her way to show mercy to even her worst enemies, though she was still willing to kill if need be. It was during this incarnations life that the Time Lady would develop a fondness for the planet Deitia, which would become her favourite world.
Deitia was a planet of similar size to earth, but 6 races as intelligent as humanity lived on Deitia on its 6 different continents. A race of Amphibian creatures, a race of reptile creatures, a humanoid race of mammals, similar to, but much larger on average than humanity, a race of amorphous blob like creatures, a race of giant, scaly bat like creatures, and a race of giant blue skinned, armored hairless carnivores.
The 6 races warred with one another for centuries, before finally uniting under the banner of the Deitians. Romana first visited their world when she saved them from the last of the Great Vampires, after which she would then be celebrated as a hero on their planet for decades.
Romana unfortunately wasn’t as careful as the Doctor when it came to concealing her existence on the planets she visited. The Doctor, apart from a few exceptions such as with the Daleks and the Cybermen, tended to stay in the shadows, but Romana 3 would let her presence be known wherever she could. This would ultimately backfire on her in many of her later incarnations.
Romana 3 just like the Doctor would travel with many companions.
One of her longest serving was a middle aged woman named Alisha, who came from E-Space’s version of earth in the year 1918. Alisha had lost her son in that reality’s version of World War 1 and joined Romana. She would later be devastated to learn of her species future.
Romana 3 would also travel with a young woman named Niasia, an intergalactic bounty hunter from the most dangerous galaxy in all of E-Space.
Romana 3 would also travel with Astor, an older man from a primitive, superstitious world. Astor had been arrested for breaking blasphemy laws on his own world and he joined Romana after she told him that his theories about life on other worlds were correct and that he could finally see them.
Romana 3’s final companion would be a young boy named Mista from a planet named Eliscose. Eliscose had been the second planet Mista’s people had moved too after their world had been destroyed by solar flares. Mista came from what were regarded as a lower class of people, and so his parents and little brother did not survive the trip. He was later assigned as part of the slave workers to help build their new world.
Mista would come to look on Romana as a surrogate mother figure.
Romana 3’s archenemies were the Great Vampires and the Earth Empire.
The 4th Romana like her first incarnation was somewhat more prim and proper and deadly serious in her approach to fixing problems. She was also much more cynical and had a very dry and sarcastic wit. She had a real love for flowers and plants which she decorated her TARDIS extensively with.
Romana 4 could appear somewhat cold and ruthless in dealing with her enemies, and was more willing to kill than her previous selves. Still despite her seemingly more callous persona, Romana 4 was somewhat more devoted to stamping out evil across E-Space than her predecessors and was still underneath, a very caring individual.
In terms of her companions, Romana inherited Mista as her companion. Their relationship remained just as close and affectionate, despite this Romana’s more dry and cynical attitude.
Romana 4 would also travel with Hilia, an alien woman from the planet Yasko. Yasko’s people were a primitive race who had been manipulated by one of the Anti God’s most powerful Demons from N-Space that had been sealed in the nothingness between universes. Unable to escape, the beast was still nevertheless able to project an image of itself onto the planet of Yasko, whose people came to believe it was a god, specifically their god, Yarrosk.
At that point in their history, the Yaskons were on the brink of moving past their superstitious beliefs, but the Demon loved convincing the people of Yasko to war with one another and to sacrifice themselves simply to keep itself amused. The Demon’s influence plunged the Yaskons into a dark age.
Romana with Hillia’s help would expose the Demon and its twisted followers, before she would then join Romana, becoming one of her longest serving companions.
Romana 4 would also travel with a Deitian man named Liser. Liser came from an earlier point in Deitia’s history, before Romana first became known to them. He was a solider in the wars between the different races.
Romana 4’s archenemies were the Vampires and the Nyrakos.
Romana 5 was a much more physical hero than her predecessors. She was somewhat more brash, hot tempered and at times even seemed to enjoy getting into fights with her enemies. Having learned her great fighting skills on her travels through E-Space, Romana 5 was the first to really put them to proper use and was capable of outfighting several of her enemies at once.
Romana 5 however was ultimately still a more cerebral hero who never used violence unless she was provoked.
Romana 5 also tended to dress in more toned down, normal clothing than her predecessors.
Romana 5’s companions included Liser, who she inherited from her predecessor, and Gharia, a woman from Axil 5. Gharia’s people were created by a gigantic robot in cloning facilities. The robot had been created by an ancient race many eons ago and after growing disgusted with them, hoped to build its own perfect race. Sadly however the robot also ruled them like a dictator, which eventually led to it’s creations, the Axils to overthrow him. The aliens would then attempt to replicate their cloning facilities or modify their bodies in order to allow themselves to reproduce naturally and not be dependent on the robot. Sadly however these experiments would lead to the deaths of many of their kind and the creation of various monsters.
Romana would help the aliens replicate the robots cloning technology, allowing them to produce fertile clones to continue their species properly, after which she would take on Gharia as her companion. Gharia would travel with Romana for many years before eventually leaving to raise a young girl whose family had been slaughtered by the Vampires, Saria. Saria would later join a future incarnation of Romana as her companion.
Romana 5’s longest serving companion was a young man named Ostacia from the dead world of Masc.
Ostacia’s world was destroyed when he was just a child. He survived the explosion in a shelter, and spent his entire childhood and young adolescence searching for other survivors. He would ultimately never find them however, but there was enough food and luxuries for him to survive.
When Ostacia was 30 his planet would be visited by a race of creatures known as the Kaveks. Their home planet had been destroyed and they hoped to make Masc their new home. Believing all of its people to be dead, when the Kavek’s discovered one still alive they would capture and experiment on Ostacia for years, and then parade him around as a freak (the Kavek’s were non humanoid) and torture him for their own amusement.
Fortunately Romana would rescue Ostacia and take him on as a companion. Ostacia would soon fall in love with Romana, though she never felt the same way about him, she did regard him as one of her greatest friends.
Romana 5’s last female companion was Elora, who came from the planet Kiska. The Kiskans were a highly advanced race, who came from a planet richer in resources than any other in their galaxy. As a result they had constantly been invaded by various other races in the galaxy. Though starting out as a primitive race, the Kiskans soon developed the technology to fight back and became hostile to all outsiders.
When Romana first landed on the planet, they assumed she was an invader too, but she was able to help them overcome a plot from within to take over from alien agents. Elora would join Romana soon after.
Romana 5’s three archenemies were the hideous Lestricia, the Helias and the robotic Dasterions who would be responsible for the deaths of both Elora and Ostacia.
A more introspective, tormented and at times emotional version of Romana. Romana 6 was consumed with guilt over her failure to stop the devastation of Deitia. At the same time however this only motivated her to be much less reckless than any of her predecessors. She never made any room for mistakes and was more strict with her companions.
Romana 6’s archenemies were the Helias, who would prove to be among her most dangerous adversaries and the entity known as Malios.
Romana 6 travelled alone for a long while after the tragic death of Romana 5’s two companions, but she would in the later years of her life travel with others just like her predecessors.
These included Pelonia, a Queen who was dethroned by invaders. Pelonia had previously been a weak, ineffective Queen overall, and would be held in contempt by her people. After escaping her world, she would later meet up with Romana and joined her on her travels, before she was able to redeem herself to her people by freeing them from the invaders.
Another of Romana’s companions was the final survivor of the legendary lost space ship the Stirad. A woman named Iess. The ship was designed to carry over 500000 colonists to safety, but it was blown off course by a crowd of asteroids onto a planet whose star was slowly dying. As it was the furthest planet away from its sun, it had not been pulled in yet, but sadly no rescue ship was able to save its crew as they would all be affected by the dying star. The planet was inhabited by superstitious monsters who believed the star was their god, and that Iess and the others were monsters who they should kill to free themselves from their Gods wrath.
With her TARDIS, Romana was able to rescue Iess who joined her as her new companion.
Romana 6 also travelled with a man from the planet Teres named Myar. Myar was a former pilot who went down with his vessel when it crashed. Though he survived, sadly his leg was amputated in the crash, which along with various other injuries meant he could never be a pilot ever again. Thanks to Romana however he would get to see more of the universe than ever before.
Romana 7 was a more caring, motherly incarnation. Developing the closest bond with her young companions, Romana 7 seemed to favour a quiet life more than other incarnations and was eager to remain hidden, having learned her lesson. Despite this however she was still a hero who wouldn’t hesitate to save others. She just tended to act from behind the scenes.
Romana 7’s archenemies were the Great Vampires, the Elinsions and the 5th incarnation of the Rani.
Her companions included Saria, the adopted daughter of Romana 5’s companion Gharia. She would also travel with Liana, the daughter of one of the worst criminals of the Isacras galaxy, Yanas. Yanas known as the butcher of Aska slaughtered over 1 million people in his experiments during the Askan wars. Sadly he ultimately escaped justice and was never found. His daughter naturally would be the recipient of the universal hatred of her father. In fact several attempts were made against her life. Liana had been close to her father when she was just a child, but after learning of his crimes she despised him as much as anyone else.
Liana on her journey’s with Romana would later bring her father to justice, after the two discovered that he had begun to work for the Earth Empire.
Romana 8 was the most serious of all of her incarnations. She had quite a dry, scathing wit, and quite a firey temper. After all she had been through, this Romana was also somewhat less trusting than previous versions.
Her companions included Liana, a young man named Lexa who was a soldier created by the earth empire, but disowned by them for supposedly being defective. He managed to escape the incineration process and later helped Romana in her constant battles against humanity.
She also travelled with a Deitan woman, who came from a time when her people had lost faith in Romana, but agreed to travel with her after Romana helped save Deita yet again.
Her archenemies were the new ruler of the Earth empire, Christine Franke and the terrible Zodin.
The 9th incarnation of Romana was by far the most ruthless and dark. Hardened by years of battling against the horrors of E-Space, Romana 9 wasn’t just simply willing to kill her enemies. She would often go out of her way to kill them if she felt they were too dangerous to be allowed to live. Even Romana’s companions sometimes were scared by her actions. Her relationship with her companions were more tense and confrontational than those of previous Romana’s, though she did soften up slightly over time.
Still this Romana was responsible for the death’s of many of her worst enemies, including both both Zodin and Christine.
This Romana was also an incredibly physical incarnation just like her 5th incarnation.
Her companions included Lexa who she inherited from her predecessor, and Releica, a woman who had been trapped in the nothingness between universes for over 100 years. Relecia had been chosen to go on a mission to explore other universes by her people from N-Space. Sadly however the ship got stuck in the void. Fortunately however the ship was stocked up with several lifetimes worth of food and entertainment, and Relecia had a relatively comfortable if lonely existence for the first 50 or so years of her time there. As time did not exist in the nothingness between universes, she didn’t age a day.
In the final few decades of her imprisonment Relecia would be pursued by a hideous monster named Orakesh who had been imprisoned in the void by his people to suffer for all eternity. Orakesh is believed to have come from a universe that the Anti God’s Demons had completely overrun. Orakesh would be unable to break his way into her ship, but every night he would claw and bang on its doors, terrifying Relecia.
When Romana arrived Relecia was only too happy to go with her, but unfortunately Romana’s TARDIS created a slight rip in the fabric of reality which allowed Orakesh to follow them through to E-Space. This Demon who would soon take over the earth empire in Christine’s place would go on to be one of Romana’s deadliest foes.
Reeling from her ruthless actions as Romana 9, Romana 10 was the most straight forward heroic version of the Time Lady. She was a very dashing, noble and physical incarnation. Much like Romana 5 she was capable of overpowering hordes of her enemies at once. Unlike many of her predecessors she would often go out of her way to show mercy to even her worst enemies, but she was still more practical than her earlier incarnations.
Romana 10’s archenemies were the 7th incarnation of the Rani, the Great Vampires and the Helias.
Her companions included Gyrak, an outlaw from the Helias, Jia a young alien who was the only member of her race abandoned on a far away planet. Thanks to Romana’s help, Jia did eventually find her home world.
Her final companion was a young woman named Tria, a Vampire hunter who would carry on to her next incarnation
Romana 11 was a somewhat more cynical incarnation with a sarcastic, biting tone. She held herself in higher esteem than any of her previous selves and wasn’t above boasting from time to time.
Confident to the point of arrogance, Romana 11 was somewhat similar to her 1st incarnation, though she was also much more crafty and manipulative. Her relationship with her companions who she wasn’t above lying to, could get tense, but she was still just as protective of them as her predecessors.
This Romana’s two archenemies would be the 8th version of the Rani and Resakor.
Her companions meanwhile included Tria a young female time traveller whose time vessel had been destroyed, and a young woman named Restina, an Archeologist from the planet Haslox.
Romana 12 was a larger than life, fun loving, generous, and compassionate incarnation who was more interested in exploring E-Space like her earlier selves. She was also the longest lived of all of Romana’s incarnations. Romana 12 was somewhat desperate to make up for her past mistakes and was also more eager to reconnect with her past and visit N-Space. She still spent most of her time in E-Space, but she would often travel to N-Space more so than any other incarnation after her first 2 incarnations. She developed a very close relationship with the 10th, 11th, 12th, and 13th Doctors.
Whilst this Romana was very kind hearted, she still had a ruthless streak, and was notable for being the incarnation who finally disposed of the Rani.
This Romana’s archenemies included the Vampires, (including Servalan the Vampire Queen of N-Space.) Resakor, and the 9th Rani.
Being the longest lived incarnation of Romana, she naturally had the most companions. She would travel with a space traveller named Anstonia who wanted to explore the universe, but was limited by the technology of her people which could only take her outside of her planets solar system.
Romana 12 also travelled with Absolam Daak, a bounty hunter from N-Space who hunted Daleks. He soon fell in love with Romana, though she did not feel the same way, she would always regard him as one of her best friends.
Romana 12 would also travel with a reformed Vampire woman named Seeka. Seeka had been part of a project from the last members of a race who had been wiped out by the Vampires to try and find a cure for their condition. All of the Vampire test subjects died except for Seeka. Sadly however the facility was destroyed by the Vampires not long after, and though Seeka managed to escape, all of the notes and work were lost. Seeka would try and find a way to replicate the experiment but sadly she was unable too.
Seeka tried to do good in the galaxy, but she was always shunned, as no one would believe that a Vampire could change.
Even Romana would have trouble however believing that a Vampire could not be evil, but after Seeka saved her life. Romana would take her on. Sadly however even with Romana’s help, Seeka would never find a cure.
Another of Romana 12’s companions was Risacon, a policeman from his own world who left it due to corruption.
Romana 12 would also travel with a Deitan woman named Aslo who had left her people to aid in the wars against humanity. Originally she believed it was a worthy cause, but she soon found out that her people, being a less advanced race, were merely used as cannon fodder. Romana would allow her to escape the war.
Romana 12’s final companion alongside Aslo was a man named Herensa, a former boxing champion on his home world.
Like the final incarnations of many Time Lords, Romana 13 was the most level headed of all her various selves. She had 0 tolerance for her enemies, and had an incredibly determined and righteous persona.
Romana 13 would finally succeed in destroying many of her worst enemies such as the Great Vampire. She passed away peacefully in her TARDIS, whilst defeating one of her worst enemies, the disembodied spirit, Resakor, who she had absorbed into her body to finally destroy. Romana much like the Doctor would be remembered as a great hero only after her death on Gallifrey, and by various planets across E-Space.
(For the full story or Romana’s adventures in E-Space, see the history of E-Space series.)
There were other villainous renegade Time Lords aside from The Master however. The Meddling Monk was a notorious renegade who changed certain events in history that he genuinely thought were for the better. He was not evil or obsessed with power like the Master, but he did still often cause quite a lot of trouble through the history of many planets in N-Space. He had a minor rivalry with the Doctor.
The Rani meanwhile was the most notorious villain the Time Lords produced after The Master himself. Originally one of Gallifrey’s greatest scientific minds, The Rani was exiled from Gallifrey when one of her experiments went wrong.
She would continue to perform her unethical experiments on various other life forms across the universe, including human beings. Her experiments caused the deaths of millions, and she was opposed at various points by the Doctor and Romana, who became her sworn enemies.
The Rani was always a cold, ruthless and vindictive person, regardless of her incarnation.
Still unlike the Master she did do many great things for certain worlds and cultures across the universe. Her experiments did benefit Gallifrey and various other planets, making her ironically a hero in certain areas of the galaxy. The CIA would even recruit her at one point to help in certain events with her experiments, whilst the High Council would even pardon her too at one point when one of her experiments helped to cure a space plague ravaging the Andromeda galaxy.
Ultimately however she and the Doctor would always remain bitter enemies and eventually when another one of the Rani’s experiments went wrong with catastrophic results for many races across the universe, the Time Lords would disown her again. In order to escape, the Rani would be forced to flee to E-Space.
Whilst there the Rani would try and find a way to destroy the Time Lords, but she would soon come into conflict with her old enemy Romana who at that point was in her 12th incarnation. Romana 12 was finally able to kill the Rani who was only on her 9th life at that point.
The first incarnation of the Rani was an arrogant, sneering, cold and ruthless individual. She cared for little more than her experiments and initially regarded both the Doctor and the Master as nothing more than trivial annoyances. As time went on however she did develop some respect for the Doctor, though she always believed that he wasted his potentially brilliant mind on aimless travelling and associating with lesser creatures such as humanity. The Rani seemed to regard human beings as being no better than animals and genuinely didn’t see anything wrong with her experiments.
The second incarnation of the Rani was more emotional, unstable and vengeful than the first. The Doctor had helped the people of the planet Miasma Gora overthrow the Rani, who had ruled over the planet for several hundred years. Experiments she had been working on for centuries were destroyed in the process.
The Rani swore revenge on the Doctor. She often claimed that he was jealous of her, as whilst some of the most advanced races in the universe had benefited from her experiments and research, the Doctor had (in her view) wasted all of his lives by helping a useless race like humanity who would never amount to anything.
This Rani despised human beings more than her previous incarnation. She loved to torture and kill them just to spite the Doctor. She also however regarded them as undeserving of the admiration other species held them in for being the great survivors.
The Third Rani was supremely arrogant. This Rani had bounced back from her second incarnation. She had supplied aid to the failing empire of the Dresana, a powerful race of reptillian creatures. The creatures had split their empire apart into two factions during a civil war, with the Rani taking the side of the more ruthless faction, who she knew would approve of her experiments. The Rani would have access to their vast resources to carry out her experiments. She did much of her greatest work with the Dresana’s. Her inventions and the weapons would help their race become far stronger than ever before. Many of these inventions would be spread to various other races and empires across the universe. Of course many others would try and take credit for them, much to the Rani’s anger. In one instance she even tracked down an earth scientist who had taken the credit for one of her inventions and used him as a test subject in her new experiments.
Eventually this version of the Rani would be banished by the new ruler of the Dresana. Desperate for revenge after all she had done for them, the Rani would join a resistance group of Dresana to strike back against the ruler who had betrayed her. The new Dresana leader hoped to use a new invention of the Rani, which functioned in a similar fashion to the hand of omega and would convert a new star into a source of unimaginable power. Unfortunately the Rani hadn’t the time to perfect it, and their new leader, in his arrogance would activate the device, which instead created a massive black hole that would devour the Dresana’s home planet and their entire empire. The Rani working with the Doctor was able to destroy the black hole before it could consume more galaxies, but the Rani seemingly perished in the attempt, sacrificing herself to save the universe.
In truth however she simply regenerated into her next incarnation, though she allowed the Doctor and the rest of the galaxy to think she had died for the time being.
The Fourth Rani was initially desperate to make up for the destruction of the Dresana, and the other worlds as a result of her inventions. She would attempt to operate from behind the scenes more. Despite this however the Rani still hated the Doctor and was shown to be willing to kill him, though she tried not to let her feud with the Doctor take up too much of her time.
This Rani was shown to be willing to use more ruthless aims for what she perceived to be a greater good. Sometimes she and the Doctor would even work together, but in other instances they clashed.
It would be this Rani who would finally be redeemed in the Time Lords eyes when she created a cure for a deadly space plague sweeping the entire andromeda galaxy.
The Celestial Intervention Agency would offer her a pardon, provided she worked with them. The Doctor of course still didn’t trust her and their feud would continue.
The Fifth Rani would be a celebrated hero for many years, a fact which angered the Doctor greatly. She was like her first incarnation, a sneering, snobby, superior individual who reveled in the adoration she got from those in the Andromeda galaxy.
The Rani’s status as a hero would end however when she ended up working with another renegade Time Lord named Lascrious. Lascrious was one of the heads of the Celestial Intervention Agency. He grew terrified of the rise of the Daleks and other monsters and wanted to wage war on them. He knew that the Time Lords would never allow their power to abused in such a way, and so he made plans to take control of Gallifrey. Lascrious did not want to build a new Time Lord empire like Rassilon. He just felt that the Time Lords needed to be more direct in saving the universe.
The Rani would perform experiments in secret for Lascrious who promised the Rani that she would be made the head of the Time Lords scientific elite. As it was now, the Rani was still a renegade in the eyes of the Time Lords, with only the Celestial Intervention Agency giving her support.
The Rani would experiment on the prisoners of the Time Lord prison planet Shada. She found a way to enhance their regenerative abilities to the point where they could regrow limbs and survive almost any injury. It also increased their strength dramatically and their mental powers, with these time lords not only being advanced telepaths, but also possessing advanced telekenetic abilities.
The Doctor was able to find out what the Rani was doing from another member of the Celestial Intervention Agency, who suspected Lascrious was up to something, but couldn’t prove it.
The Doctor was able to break into Shada and find out the truth. He managed to destroy the Rani’s experiments, and bring her to the High Council who put the villain on trial for her crimes. All but one of her test subjects had been destroyed by the Doctor. The Time Lord that managed to escape, was named Exelac. He had been a notorious member of Morbius’ army who had only been given a lighter sentence because he betrayed Morbius in the end. Still his cruelty possibly exceeded that of the disgraced former President.
Exelac had been able to escape before the Rani could lobotomise him like the others to be loyal servants. Escaping into the universe, Exelac would capture other renegade Time Lords, and members of the Celestial Intervention Agency, and turn them into monsters like himself. This new race of mutant Time Lords who would christen themselves the Toclafane would cause absolute havoc across N-Space’s history.
The Rani managed to escape to E-Space however where she swore revenge on the Doctor. She would come into conflict with Romana however whilst in E-Space, beginning their feud.
This version of the Rani was more cold and logical on the surface but underneath she had a vicious sadistic streak. Initially she was consumed with revenge against the Time Lords, but her feud with Romana came to dominate most of her time.
This Rani was most notable for creating the hideous monster race known as the Grastornix.
The Grastornix were intended to be her warrior race that she would use to conquer Gallifrey. She spent many centuries trying to create the perfect beast, and the Grastornix were just one of many creatures she abandoned for not working how she hoped they would.
The Grastornix had the power to absorb other life forms into their bodies and in doing so could potentially consume all other life forms making them too dangerous even for the Rani. In addition to this the Rani found it difficult to control their minds. Finally the Rani also considered them to be utterly repulsive creatures too.
Most of the Grastornix were killed in the Rani’s labs, but a few managed to escape into E-Space. Sadly due to their horrific appearance they were rejected by almost any species they came into contact with. The Grastornix eventually came to see all other life as their enemies and began to cause havoc across all of E-Space, absorbing entire cultures, and species.
They became major enemies of Romana, but their hatred for the Rani eclipsed everything else and they would pursue her across all of E-Space. On a few occasions the Rani and Romana would be forced to work together against the Grastornix.
This Rani had a truly sadistic sense of humour and a more flippant attitude to life. Still this Rani maintained her passionate hatred for Romana however, considering her to be as annoying a meddler as the Doctor.
This Rani appeared to be willing to take more risks with her life for both her experiments and to get back at Romana.
This Rani was also responsible for creating the Nexar beast. This creature was created within the power of the Time Vortex itself. It was designed specifically to track down and devour Romana and could travel through time at will. It was one of the single most destructive beasts in the history of E-Space. When it was unable to catch Romana it would go rogue and begin destroying other worlds to satiate its hunger for destruction.
The 8th Rani initially began as a more unstable incarnation. She still wished for revenge against the Time Lords, and soon built up another planet, the planet Relos up in the hopes that they could be her army against the Time Lords.
Over time however the Rani came to genuinely love the people of Relos. She was proud of the fact that her inventions had lifted them out of poverty and made them one of the most advanced races in the galaxy. She came to see them as her redemption.
However she would still attempt to manipulate them into trying to murder Romana. This was more for her own self preservation than anything else, as she feared even if she did redeem herself then Romana would never let her go.
Ultimately however the Rani’s past would catch up with her, when the Grastornix would invade Relos. The Rani would be forced to work with Romana to try and save the people of Relos. Sadly the two Time Ladies failed and the Rani would be pushed over the edge as a result, with her hatred of Romana only increasing. She felt that Romana did not want to save the Relosians because they were the Rani’s true people. She even suspected Romana of betraying them (which was false) and would try and make her archfoe pay.
The 9th and final incarnation of the Rani. This incarnation was also by far and away the most twisted, sadistic and evil. Having been pushed over the edge by the destruction of Relos, this Rani was a very unpredictable enemy, who was frequently able to outmatch Romana and leave a trail of absolutely devastating destruction in her wake.
This Rani would gain a large influence through E-Space by manufacturing weapons for various races across the cosmos. She would later use this to get revenge on Romana, by promising to aid the Deitians, who were being invaded by humanity, if they captured Romana and handed her over. The Deitians needed the Rani’s weapons to defend themselves and so they betrayed their former hero.
Though Romana managed to escape the Rani, she was left broken by the betrayal of her favourite planet.
Eventually this Rani would meet her end when Romana 12 used one of the villains own weapons, a weapon that attempted to harness anti matter to completely and utterly vaporize the Rani, bringing an end to her reign of terror over both E and N-Space once and for all.
Despite the presence of these notorious renegades, the Time Lords would by and large follow Rassilon’s non intervention policy throughout the rest of their history. As a result of this many of the races that had suffered under their rule would come to forgive the Time Lords, and across the wider cosmos the Time Lords would also set an example to other advanced races not to interfere in the affairs of others.
Masters of the Universe
After the defeat of the Anti God, and the Time Lords desire to not interfere anymore, a power vacum opened up in the universe and many races would attempt to fill it. Some of these races had existed before the fall of the Anti God and the end of the Time Lords empire and had even had an influence before then, but it would only be after the end of the Time Lords empire that many of these races would rise to full power.
None of these races ever achieved the universal dominance that the Time Lords had however, but still many huge empires would emerge in this time that would last for millions of years.
Among the first was the Furon empire. The Furons were a war like race who conquered and destroyed thousands of planets across the known universe. Originally ordinary humanoid creatures, the Furons constant experiments with advanced weaponry mutated them in various ways, including hindering their ability to have any children.
The Furons however would overcome this by finding a way to clone themselves. Not only did this save their race from extinction, but it would make them a far more dangerous species than ever before. Now they could produce millions of clones in an instant. The Furons would also be able to manipulate their clone DNA too, giving themselves a wide variety of mental powers.
The Furons most devastating mental ability was their power to move objects with their mind. Whilst all Furons could lift something the size of a man in the air, and exert enough force mentally to snap a humans skeleton no problem. Further mental augmentations from Furon scientists would allow them to lift objects up to 50 tons in weight with their minds. The Furons would also gain powerful telepathic abilities and shapeshifting abilities too, all of which would help them to become one of the most powerful and feared races in the universe.
Another similar race of warrior clones were the Sontarans. The Sontarans were the creation of the Kaveetch. The Kaveetch’s home planet, Sondar had been invaded by a hostile race of shapeshifters, called the Rutans. In order to beat back the monsters, the Kaveetch created a race of incredibly strong clone warriors, who not only drove the Rutans from Sontar, but from the Kaveetch’s entire galaxy.
Unfortunately for the Kaveetch, the new clone race soon believed themselves to be superior and attacked their former masters whilst they were celebrating. The Kaveetch were all exterminated, except for a few who managed to escape through a time machine. The Kaveetch had been working on time travel technology just before the Rutan invasion. The technology was crude and dangerous, but sadly it was the last of the Kaveetch’s only hope of escape from the monsters they had created. The unstable time machine, just before it exploded, managed to send the Kaveetch through time and space, several thousand years to the planet earth.
They landed in the English countryside where they blended into the local community. The Kaveetch’s leader soon made plans for revenge against the clones, who had come to christen themselves “Sontarans”.
Unfortunately for the Kaveetch, the Sontarans soon tracked them down and killed off all but two of the Kaveetch, their leader and his ex wife, who the 6th Doctor was able to take to safety across time and space.
The Sontarans meanwhile would go on to conquer various other races across the galaxy and very soon became a major power. Much like the Furons, the fact that they were a clone race meant that they could produce several million soldiers in a day.
Unfortunately for the Sontarans however, the Rutans would soon strike back. The Rutans were far more advanced than the Sontarans, but the Sontarans were able to keep up with the Rutans in the war due to their greater numbers. The Rutans would always have to struggle to stay ahead of the Sontarans in terms of technology. There were a few instances where the Sontarans were able to catch up to the Rutans, which very nearly resulted in the extinction of the Rutan race.
Ultimately however the Rutans head start would always ensure that they could continue to hold off the Sontarans.
The war between the two races would stretch across the entire universe over the course of several million years. The Doctor once described the war as perpetual.
The Sontarans loved war. Having been built for nothing but fighting, the Sontarans were always searching for a race that could be a genuine challenge for them and they found it in the Rutans.
Another more peaceful race who became a dominant power in the galaxy were the Exillons. The Exillons were one of the oldest races in the universe. When they first explored the universe, they were caught up in the middle of the Anti God and God’s war with one another, and retreated back to their planet for safety. After the war was over however, the Exillons would begin exploring space, with the sole purpose of helping other life forms.
They visited planets ravaged by the war between the gods and later the Time Lords and provided aid to them. They also helped to elevate primitive cultures too. Among those they visited was earth at an early stage in humanity’s history.
The Exillons would come to be regarded as heroes in many parts of the galaxy, but sadly their fate would be sealed when they attempted to construct a living city. This city it was hoped would be intelligent enough to cater to every one of the Exillons needs, and sustain itself without using any of the planets resources for thousands of years.
Whilst the city was a success at first, it soon developed a mind of its own and came to see the Exillons as pests. It not only drove them out, but being connected to the Exillons technology (as it was hoped it could regulate and power it all.) It either disconnected their power (leaving Exxilon ships and colonies on uninhabited worlds cut off, vulnerable and without any food, water or power where they eventually died.) Or it gave them a power overload, causing them to blow up.
The City wiped out the Exxilons across the universe almost overnight and using its virtually unlimited energy supply, it devastated the surface of Exxilon itself, almost exterminating their entire species. The few thousand survivors would split into two factions, one who degenerated into savages and would worship their city as a god, even making sacrifices to it, and another who tried to destroy the city to free their planet.
Various other races would attempt to help the Exxilons, but whenever their spaceships got near the planet, the city would drain them of all power causing them to crash.
Exxilon would ironically later gain a reputation across the galaxy as a planet of evil, with every ship who went there never coming back.
Another major force were the Creval, interdimensional beasts who ironically were once hailed as heroes throughout certain parts of the galaxy. They were a race of warriors who had devoted themselves to bringing down all paranormal creatures across the universe.
They slew many of the Anti Gods monsters and Demons, but unfortunately they would prove to be no match for one of the Anti God’s most vile Demons, Cargas. One of Cargas’ children had been slain by the Creval and so he wanted to make them suffer more than any of his other victims.
Cargas created a pocket universe whose inhabitants would never age and who would suffer the worst tortures, created from their worst fears.
One of the Creval named Deslor however escaped his world before the Cargas condemned them. Deslor was one of their greatest scientists and with the aid of various other races the Creval had saved, was eventually able to build a device that could pull his people from the pocket universe. Unfortunately however the pull of Cargas dimension was so strong that it would soon suck the Creval straight back into it.
Deslor would discover that the only way round this would be to send as many people into Cargas’ dimension to replace the Crevals. Even worse as the dimension was always intended to be for the Creval and only them, then one lot of people wouldn’t be enough. They’d have to every year at least, condemn another entire race to suffer for all eternity in Cargas dimension instead.
Deslor wrestled with the decision, but ultimately his loyalty to his people won out, and he freed them.
At first the Crevals only targeted races that they believed to be evil, but as time went on and their population increased, shortening the time they had to capture species, they would be forced to be send other races to Cargas’ hell.
Their population would exist on their planet just as before, whilst their army would be the ones forced to conquer other worlds and condemn them to hell. The knowledge of what they were doing was often kept from the general population, who continued to believe that their people were heroes. Meanwhile the Creval would soon come to be viewed as monsters by the rest of the galaxy, but no one was strong enough to stand against them.
The 12th Doctor would later stop their army from sending a primitive world to the Cargas’ hell, resulting in billions of Crevals being sent there instead. The Crevals would come to despise the Doctor, viewing him as the greatest monster in their history after Cargas himself. The Doctor would attempt to help the Crevals, but sadly they always spurned his offer of help.
Among the other major forces in the galaxy to emerge in this time included the Zystregia and the Omicronians.
The Zystregia came from within a white hole. No force in this universe was able to enter a white hole and survive. It is not known what exists within them, but they spew time and matter back into the universe which can lead to time anomalies, in any planet or area unlucky enough to be near to them.
The Zystregia are believed to have conquered all of the other life forms within their dimension and journeyed into ours in search of a new challenge. Many however have doubted this, claiming that this is just propaganda and that in truth they were driven out of their own world into our universe.
Whatever the case the monsters not only had the power to travel through time, but they could also through touch alone, age their victims to death, or reduce them to infants. They also had weapons that could age planets to dust, or trap their victims or even whole planets in time loops forever.
Physically they resembled 8 foot tall humanoids who glowed white and had piercing red eyes.
The Omicronians meanwhile were gigantic reptillian creatures, large enough to swallow a human being in a single bite. They originated from the planet Omicron Persei 8 and soon built up a vast interstellar empire. Though it never quite reached the heights of the Sontaran empire, it would remain stable throughout most of the history of N-Space, and the Omicronians would always remain a force to be reckoned with.
The only race who would ever seriously rival the Time Lords however were the Daleks, a race far more evil and destructive than the Furons, the Zystregia, the Omicronians, the Crevals and the Sontarans combined.
The Daleks came from the planet Skaro. Life on Skaro developed in a similar fashion to life on earth. Giant reptiles similar to Dinosaurs were among the first creatures to evolve on Skaro, and 4 intelligent humanoid races would later emerge too, the Thals, the Tharons, the Dals and the Kaleds.
One of the Dinosaur like reptiles of Skaro.
Not much is known about the history of these races, but it is known, thanks to the tireless work of Terry Nation, the first man to translate the Dalek Chronicles kept within the Mesrak’s pod. That the Kaleds exterminated the Tharons and the Dals, before waging war on the Thals.
The Kaleds and the Thals war would last for over 1000 years. During that time both races would develop nuclear weapons which would scorch the surface of Skaro, turning it from a beautiful jungle planet, into a barren, irradiated wasteland filled with mutations and monsters.
As the centuries rolled on, more and more mutated Kaleds and Thals would be born. These mutants would be cast out into the wastelands of Skaro by both the Thals and the Kaleds in order to keep their races pure.
Eventually however the Kaleds soon discovered that the air of Skaro itself had been polluted by their, and the Thals weapons to the point where both species would undergo a mutation cycle.
The Kaled government set up a scientific elite designed to find out what the final stage of this Kaled mutation cycle would be and ensure a way for its survival.
Davros was appointed the head of this scientific elite. Davros was a highly respected, but somewhat controversial figure among the Kaleds. He was a radical, known for creating some of the most devastating weapons in the Kaleds history. Ultimately this had been his downfall, as a Thal agent had managed to set one of these weapons off whilst Davros was working on it.
Davros survived the attack but he was horribly disfigured as a result. Both of his legs were blown off, as were both of his eyes and one of his arms.
Davros was placed in a travel machine and life support system kept him alive. Ironically Davros’ life support system would prolong his life as it would repair any of his organs that broke down and effectively make him immortal.
A third mechanical eye was also placed into Davros’ forehead which would allow him to see.
Davros the head of the scientific elite on Skaro after his accident.
Many believed that Davros had been driven insane after his accident, but he was still appointed the head of the scientific elite, as there was no denying that he was a genius, decades, if not centuries ahead of the rest of the Kaleds scientific elite.
Davros would subject living Kaled cells to greater doses of the kind of radiation that had polluted Skaro, thereby accelerating the mutation process. Davros created various monsters and mutations which he banished to the wastelands to die (though a few would survive.)
Eventually however Davros’ experiments would reveal that their race was destined to mutate into a hideous, amorphous blob like creature, utterly incapable of surviving on its own. Davros would build a robot to house this mutant creature. The first prototype for this machine was in fact his own wheelchair and life support system. It was known as a mark 1 travel machine. Davros’s first machine designed to house these creatures he referred to as a mark 2 travel machine. The mark 2 travel machine however would prove to be somewhat erratic and would frequently break down.
Eventually however Davros would perfect the model with his mark 3 travel machine. Using the same basic shape as the mark 2 travel machine, Davros found a way to stabilize the power of these machines, through panels (which took the form of slats around the machines mid section.)
Made of a much stronger metal, these machines fire power was also several times stronger than that of the mark 2 travel machines. Finally the Mark 3 machines would be fitted with a life support machine similar to Davros, which could effectively allow the mutant creatures they would house to life forever (barring accidents of course.)
Having created the perfect machine to house the Kaled mutants, Davros would soon begin to tamper with the Kaled mutants he had created’s minds.
Davros removed what he believed were weaknesses from the Kaleds minds. Emotions such as compassion, love, pity, and remorse were completely removed. Furthermore Davros would also program a strong aggression towards any life forms that were different into the Kaled mutants minds.
Davros believed, having never known anything but war for his entire life, that one race would have to dominate the others in order to survive. Naturally he wanted his own people to be that race, but he felt the Kaleds as they were now were too weak. He believed that they still showed too much compassion to the Thals, and so he wanted to rectify these mistakes in his new Kaled race. As repulsive as they were, Davros regarded the Kaled mutants as his master race.
Whilst the scientists of Skaro generally believed that there was no life on other planets, Davros believed that there might be, and so he programmed the possibility into the heads of the Kaled mutants. Not only would they believe that life existed on other worlds, but their goal was to explore the universe for any life and conquer it if they found it.
Davros would come to christen the combination of the Kaled mutant inside the mark 3 travel machine, a Dalek, which was an old Dal word for God.
In the original timeline after Davros created the Daleks, they quickly overran Skaro, wiping out both the Thals and their humanoid ancestors the Kaleds. They then quickly established themselves as the dominant power in their galaxy and would go on to eventually eclipse even the Time Lords themselves in power and strength. The Daleks in this timeline eventually destroyed all of creation itself.
The Celestial Intervention Agency on Gallifrey would discover this potential timeline when the Doctor brought the Daleks to their attention. The CIA had not really taken much note of the Daleks before. They knew of them certainly, but ultimately they just assumed they were another race of would be conquerors. Dangerous to lesser races undoubtedly, but of no threat or importance to Gallifrey.
The Doctor however during his trial in his second incarnation warned the Time Lords that the Daleks were the most evil creatures he had ever faced on his travels, and the CIA would take an interest in them. Eventually when they were able to investigate the Daleks full history (going further into the future than they had ever gone before as a result.) The Time Lords discovered the awful truth about just how dangerous the Daleks were.
The Time Lords decided to use the Doctor due to his greater experience and knowledge of the Daleks, and so they diverted the 4th Doctor, and his two companions Sarah and Harry to Skaro at an early point just before the Daleks creation. The Doctor was given three options to stop the vision of the future the Time Lords had foreseen from coming true. Either exterminate the Daleks, change their development so they become less aggressive creatures, or slow down their development so that other races will be given enough time to catch up with them.
The Doctor tried to stop the development of the monsters by warning the Kaled government of what Davros was creating. By this point all but two civilizations on Skaro had been exterminated by the 1000 year long war. Only one Thal city and one Kaled city, were left, both stationed a few miles from one another. The Kaled city was protected by a special dome which allowed it to withstand all forms of Thal weaponry.
Davros however would betray the Kaleds after their government wanted to investigate his experiments, by giving the Thals a secret formula which allowed them to break down the Kaled dome, after which the Thals were able to launch a missile that destroyed the entire Kaled city, seemingly wiping the last of the Kaleds out, save the scientific bunker. Davros would then send out a mere 4 Daleks who proceeded to exterminate virtually the entire Thal race. Only a few hundred in a city of several million Thals were able to escape the Daleks.
Davros would also capture the Doctor and his two companions after learning that they were from the future. He proceeded to torture the Doctors companions until the Doctor told him the reason for every Dalek defeat in the future. Though the Doctor broke and told Davros everything he wanted to know, the Doctor was able to destroy the tape before Davros could use it to change history.
Davros would go on to become the Doctors single greatest enemy alongside the Master himself. Their rivalry would spread across many thousands of years.
The Doctor discovers the full extent of Davros’ insanity.
The Doctor initially tried to rally several Kaled scientists against Davros and at one point they came close to wiping out the Daleks. The Doctor himself held the detonation device that would have destroyed Davros’ incubation chambers for the Kaled mutants and exterminated the Daleks at birth. Ultimately however the Doctor chose not to.
He knew he had to slow down their development, but he felt that he did not have the right to exterminate the Daleks from existence itself. He wondered if perhaps some things were better with them, as evil as they were, the Daleks ironically ended up uniting thousands, if not millions of races together in a mutual fear and hatred of them.
He also wondered if murdering the Daleks when they were defenceless made him no better than they were and gave up what was the greatest opportunity to destroy the monsters. The Doctor stood by his decision for many years claiming “Although I know that the Daleks will create havoc and destruction for millions of years, I also know that out of their evil must come some good.”
In later incarnations however the Doctor would come to view not destroying the Daleks as the single biggest mistake of his life and would try and make up for it many times. Sadly however he was never able to completely wipe the Daleks out, but he was able to cripple their power greatly at various points.
The Doctor gives up a golden opportunity to destroy his archenemies.
The rebellious Kaled scientists were exterminated by Davros’ Daleks, but the Doctor was still able to defeat the monsters, by working with the few surviving Thals who had united with the surviving Mutants, cast out into the wilderness (called Mutos).
The Thals and the Mutos were able to cause a massive explosion by a mountain near the Kaled bunker, which caused the mountain to collapse on top of it. Most of the bunker was destroyed in the explosion, but a few Daleks and scientists (including Davros) were trapped under several thousand tons of rubble.
No longer needing Davros or the scientists the Daleks turned on and killed them all. Davros only realized too late what a true monster he had created, with the Daleks not being able to show mercy to the last of the Kaleds, or even their own creator. Seconds after killing Davros, the Dalek that had personally gunned him down and had taken leadership of their race declared.
“We are entombed but we live on. This is only the beginning. We will prepare, we will grow stronger. When the time is right we will emerge and take our rightful place as the supreme power of the universe!”
Little did the Daleks know however, Davros had survived. His life support machine had placed him into a state of suspended animation whilst it slowly repaired his organs. Due to the damage caused by the Dalek death rays however, it would take over 1000 years to revive Davros!
It would also take the Daleks 1000 years to escape from their prison and recover Davros’ lost work. In this respect the 4th Doctor succeeded in changing history, as the Daleks were held back by several thousand years. Other races, including the Time Lords themselves, would be given a chance to catch up with the Daleks, stopping them before they could ever reach the devastating level of power seen in the Time Lord’s vision of the future.
After the defeat of Davros and the Daleks, the last surviving Thals would retreat across Skaro in an effort to find food. All of their supplies and technology had been destroyed by the Daleks in their attack on their city.
The Thals would eventually be forced to move to the second continent on Skaro to try and gain more food and resources. On their second continent they would establish a city and even flourish, despite the state of Skaro.
Little did the Thals know however some of Davros’ earlier experiments had survived. These mutants were not as far along the mutation cycle as Davros’ Daleks, now sealed in the Kaled bunker were. Some of them were as single minded as animals and would come to live in a lake, just outside the old Kaled city. One group of mutants meanwhile were still humanoid in shape and retained their intelligence, but they were blue skinned, squat, bald and goblin like.
These creatures, lost and confused, would search the ruins of Davros’ bunker that were still above ground. Finding his notes and papers, they believed that they were the Daleks he had created and adopted Davros’ xenophobic beliefs as their own.
These humanoid Daleks would later build a massive city from the ruins of the old Kaled city, and would devote themselves to exterminating the Thals.
The war raged on for many years, but eventually the Daleks developed a super weapon to destroy the Thals. Zolfian, the Daleks leader, ignored warnings from the Daleks leading scientist, Yarvelling, that the bomb was too unstable.
Yarvelling was planning to create a new robot to exterminate the Thals. He had actually simply modified Davros’ old mark 2 travel machines, but ultimately he was not able to make them able to move outside of their city, before disaster struck the Dalek people.
Zolfian and Yarvelling the other two creators of the Dalek race.
An electrical storm, brought about by Skaro’s unstable atmosphere, caused Zolfian’s bomb to go off. Zolfian being aware of what was about to happen, retreated to a Dalek bunker, along with Yarvelling.
The bomb consumed all of Skaro, killing most of its inhabitants and reducing it to a worse state it was in even after the 1000 year war.
When Zolfian and Yarvelling emerged after a few months, they discovered that some of the mutant, blue skinned Daleks had survived, but the radiation had pushed them further down the path of their mutation cycle. In order to survive, these Dalek mutants housed themselves in Davros’/Yarvelling’s mark 2 travel machines. Now confined to the city (which had been left untouched, as Zolfians bomb was designed only to destroy organic matter.) The Daleks forced Zolfian and Yarvelling to construct more machines to house the other mutated members of their kind. The Daleks incorrectly believed that the machines were the only thing that could protect them from the polluted air of Skaro and that they could not leave them under any circumstances.
The two humanoid Daleks agreed for the survival of their species to build more machines. By the time of Zolfian and Yarvelling’s apparent deaths, they had managed to build a special glass casing for the Emperor of the Daleks.
In truth however Zolfian and Yarvelling had not died. They had in fact been rescued by the Master. In the future the Master had just lost an empire he had spent centuries building up to the Daleks and Davros. The Master came to the realization that the Daleks were the supreme beings after all. The empire the Master had lost to the Daleks, was actually made up of several different races that the Master had managed to unite into what he thought would be his greatest force.
The Daleks slaughtered them effortlessly and so the Master decided to go to the other creators of the Daleks to learn how to build his own race. Rescuing Zolfian and Yarvelling from the Daleks clutches. The Master would take them to the planet Ameron, where Zolfian and Yarvelling, with the Masters help would lure a group of far flung humans to the planet and mutate them into a new race of Daleks, though we will be looking at their history later.
The Emperor of the Daleks would live just below the centre of the city. Connected up to an extra power supply which made him stronger. The rest of the Dalek casings meanwhile were powered by a main source, stationed on an upper level at the top of the city.
The Emperor of the Daleks in his first glass casing.
The Daleks would desperately try and find a way to move beyond their cities limits. They believed that some of the Thals had survived and desperately wanted to finish their old enemies off. The Thals own continent had been hit worse by the explosion of the bomb, as the atmosphere on that side of the planet had already been made more unstable by the 1000 year war, and after the explosion was victim to various radioactive thunder storms, and explosions which destroyed the Thals city. With only the scarcest resources the Thals were forced to flee their continent to the one the Dalek city was on. In order to survive the polluted air of Skaro which was now toxic to most life forms, (even the mutations it created), the Thals were able using the last of their scientific resources to create an anti radiation drug.
As soon as they spotted the Dalek city still standing, the Thals wished to try and make contact with them, but naturally many of the Thal people had reservations given the Daleks history.
The Daleks meanwhile had been able to detect the Thals presence in the jungle using their rangerscopes outside of their city and wished to exterminate them. They immediately began making plans to find a way to leave their city.
In the middle of this chaos would arrive the Doctor in his first incarnation. From his perspective this would mark the first time the Doctor would ever encounter the Daleks. Ironically it had been the Doctor himself who forced his then companions, Ian, Barbara and Susan to explore the city of the Daleks. The whole planet seemed dead when the travellers first arrived, but the Doctor, ever the adventurer wanted to find out why, whilst his companions simply wanted to get back to earth. The Doctor went as far as to pretend that his TARDIS was damaged and that the only way they could repair it was in the city. Just before they left for the city, the foursome discovered a strange box left outside the TARDIS which the Doctor placed safely back in his ship to study later.
Exploring the city ended up being the biggest mistake the Doctor would ever make in his entire life. The Doctor and his companions would be captured by the Daleks not long after arriving in the city. They also began to succumb to the poisoned air of Skaro too.
The Daleks interrogated the Doctor, and revealed to him their history. The Daleks told the Doctor that they suspected the Thals had a supply of anti radiation drugs in order to survive, and that they wanted it for themselves. Realizing that the box left outside the TARDIS had been the anti radiation drugs, the Doctor agreed to help the Daleks retrieve them in exchange for his and his fellow travellers lives.
Susan, being the only one who had not been weakened by the radiation poisoning (as she was the youngest) was sent out into the petrified jungles of Skaro to retrieve the drugs. There she met one of the Thals named Alyodon who told her that his people wanted to live in peace with the Daleks and rebuild their planet. He also however gave Susan a second supply of drugs, just in case the Daleks had only wanted it for themselves.
Alyodon’s suspicions were correct. Initially the Daleks had intended to use all of the drug to leave their machines and then exterminate the Thals, whilst leaving the Doctor, Ian, Barbara and Susan to die. After learning that Susan had made contact with the Thals however, the Daleks decided to use her to lure them into a trap.
The Daleks forced Susan to write a note which said that the Daleks wanted to make peace with the Thals and that they were to come into their city to collect food tomorrow.
The Thals, desperate and hungry, fell for the Dalek ruse, but fortunately the Doctor and his companions were able to escape their cell and warn the Thals, though not before the Daleks managed to kill the Thals leader in their ambush.
The Daleks would soon discover that they had ironically become dependent on radiation, when the samples of the Thals anti radiation drugs started to kill them. In order to overcome this problem, and exterminate the Thals. The Daleks decided to unleash mass amounts of radiation into the air which would kill all life on the planet Skaro, except for the Daleks themselves.
The Doctor and his companions would lead a Thal attack on the city. The Thals had been reluctant to fight after their previous wars and had become pacifists. The Doctor’s companion Ian however had managed to convince them that they needed to fight the Daleks, or else not only would they all die, but everything their ancestors had ever achieved, or fought for would vanish too.
The Daleks initially had the advantage in the Thals attack and many Thals were exterminated, but the Doctor and his companions were able to knock out the Daleks main power supply. One by one the creatures all seemingly died and the Thals, regretful that it had to come to this, moved into the Daleks city, whilst the Doctor and his companions left Skaro to resume their travels.
Little did the Thals know however, the Emperor Dalek survived on his extra power supply, deep in the bowels of the city.
The Emperor would remain hidden whilst the Thals began to use the Daleks technology to harvest food. Contrary to what the Doctor and the Thals believed, the Daleks had not been killed when their power had been shut off. They had simply been put into suspended animation, as the Emperor was able to sciphon off some of his power into the rest of the Daleks. It wasn’t enough to fully reactivate them, but it did keep the Daleks alive on their life support machines in a state of suspended animation.
Working in secret the Emperor was eventually able to sciphon the Thals new power source into the Daleks, reviving them completely. The Daleks attacked the Thals in the middle of the night and slaughtered most of them, keeping only a few alive as a slave labour force.
The Daleks had never had a humanoid labour force before and so the Thals were a tremendous asset to them. The Thals were able to leave the Dalek city and help the monsters harness the few resources there were on the surface of Skaro to build new machines and advance their technology to a greater extent than ever before.
The Daleks scientists were able with their new resources to find a way for the Daleks to move beyond their city. They designed a satelite dish that was placed on the back of each Dalek casing which drew power from their base.
The Daleks however still could not move over rough terrain and so they were forced to construct transolar discs which could allow them to fly through the air.
The Emperor (who placed himself into a smaller, but stronger Gold casing, with an enlarged dome shaped head.) Decided against flooding Skaro with radiation. He believed that the Daleks were stronger in their casings now that they had overcome the basic design flaws.
The Emperor also ironically did not want to kill off the Thals, as the Daleks still needed them as an expendable work force. Despite this however the cruel treatment the Daleks were subjecting the Thals too had already killed most of their race off. The Emperor knew that they would need more slaves to help their race expand and began to make plans for their race to conquer other planets.
The Daleks would discover space travel when Skaro was visited by a hostile race of aliens known as the Krattorians. The Krattorians were slave traders and had landed on Skaro with some of their slaves, simply for repairs.
Turning the Krattorians slaves against them, the Emperor of the Daleks would kill the Krattorians and capture their technology which the Daleks used to create their own space ships. The Daleks space ships would be based on the Krattorians and were similarly saucer shaped.
With the aid of space travel the Daleks would go on to conquer and destroy various other worlds across the universe, including the plant world Alvega. Once the Daleks had made slaves on other worlds then they no longer needed the Thals and began exterminating all of their Thal captives. (Many of the creatures they conquered were stronger and better slaves than the Thals anyway.)
A few of the Thals managed to escape and were forced to retreat underground, where they scraped by on a meagre existence without the Daleks knowledge. The Thals bided their time, waiting for the right moment to strike back against the Daleks.
The Daleks would also find a way to pilot Skaro across the universe, making their planet into a spaceship.
Among the planets the Daleks would conquer would be Earth in the 22nd Century. They ruled the planet for over 30 years in what was regarded as one of the darkest periods in human history. We will be taking a greater look at this invasion later in the history of humanity.
An alliance of races including the Daleks enemies the Mechanoids brought an end to this race of Daleks empire and they were pushed back to Skaro. Whilst they were weak, a final attack on their base would knock the Daleks power source out a second time, putting them into suspended animation again.
The Daleks would remain out of action for many years (save a brief attempt by a villainous human to try and control them which ended in his death, and the Daleks being shut down again.) Skaro would be quarrantined by the earth empire. The Daleks however would later ironically be revived by the Thals, when Skaro was invaded by a hostile race of aliens, the Moroks.
In order to defend their planet, the Thals were forced to revive the Daleks. With no other choices the Daleks agreed to an alliance with the Thals for now to drive off the Moroks, and both races would work together for many years. Sadly however neither were successful in defeating the Moroks.
The Moroks would ultimately bring about their own defeat when their curiosity got the better of them. The Moroks detected life signs deep beneath the surface of Skaro. Thinking that it was perhaps a secret base for the Thals, the Moroks blasted their way to where the life signs were.
There much to their horror, the Moroks discovered that the life signs belonged to a much more advanced and hostile race of Daleks, Davros’ Daleks sealed in the bunker all those centuries ago by the Doctor.
These Daleks who had far more devastating fire power and who could fly eradicated the Moroks. Davros truly was a genius, centuries ahead of his time.
Though the Moroks lost, they would still keep a Dalek casing in their museum of greatest triumphs (though it was one of Zolfian and Yarvelling’s Daleks, rather than one of Davros’ Daleks, as they never succeeded in killing even one of Davros’ Daleks.)
The Dalek casing in the Morok’s museum of greatest triumphs. Not long after the Morok’s failed invasion of Skaro their empire would soon fall.
After the Morok’s were driven out, Davros’ Daleks soon overran Skaro. The monsters easily conquered both Zolfian and Yarvelling’s Daleks and the Thals. They allowed the other race of Daleks to live only if they agreed to become like them.
Davros’ Daleks were further down the mutation cycle than Zolfian and Yarvelling’s and their minds had also been specially conditioned by Davros to be devoid of any emotions such as pity and compassion. Zolfian and Yarvellings Daleks meanwhile, aside from not being as mutated, were still capable of emotions such as compassion. They suppressed them of course, and still followed Davros’ xenophobic ideology, but they were not anywhere near as ruthless or monstrous as Davros’ Daleks. There had at least been one instance of one of Zolfian and Yarvelling’s Daleks who had rebelled against the Daleks xenophobic beliefs. This Dalek who came to be known as the One in A Million Dalek was eventually killed by the Emperor, but it was still a Dalek who had developed long repressed emotions such as compassion and affection. He even had a fondness for flowers and decorated himself with them!
The one in a million Dalek.
Furthermore another Dalek known as Zeg (some of Zolfian and Yarvelling’s Daleks even kept their names) developed his own ambitions and plans. Whilst still ruthless, Zeg planned to lead the Daleks instead of the Emperor after a lab experiment caused his casing to become virtually indestructable.
Once again however the Emperor was able to crush Zeg just as he did the one in a million Dalek, but naturally this worried Davros’ Daleks who were all devoted to the greater Dalek cause and had no individual personalities or desires.
In order to be accepted as members of Davros’ Daleks, Zolfian and Yarvelling’s Daleks would be mutated until they reached the same stage as Davros’ Daleks along the mutation cycle. They also had to have their minds conditioned to remove any lingering traces of compassion or mercy. Their casing were also upgraded with slats to allow them full mobility outside of their city without the dishes, and a hover pad was built into the base of their casings that could allow them to fly.

In addition to this the two Dalek leaders, (the Dalek that had gunned down Davros, and the Emperor of the Daleks) in a further sign of the two races coming together, would literally merge themselves into the one being, who would subsequently be housed in a much larger casing.

The fused Emperor
The Thals meanwhile were almost totally exterminated, but a few of them once again managed to escape into deep space thanks to a stolen Morok space ship.
The Thals would settle on a planet many light years away from the Daleks and once again worked hard to try and find a way to fight their age old adversary.
The new unified Dalek race after piloting Skaro itself across the universe out of reach of old enemies, like humanity, rebuilt their forces and resumed their war against the rest of creation.
This Dalek race would go on to be far more dangerous than the first. They would over the course of several centuries build an empire far larger than the Furons and the Sontarans combined. They would also discover the secrets of time travel and eventually go on to rival the Time Lords themselves in power. Despite this however they would be somewhat set back when their creator Davros returned and split the race into two factions, those loyal to him, and the renegades.
The monsters full history will be covered as we look through the history of N-Space overall. The Daleks despite coming from relatively humble beginnings would soon rise up to destroy billions of worlds across the universe and cause more havoc and destruction than any of the Anti Gods minions, or even the Anti God himself. They were by far the most evil and feared creatures in all of creation.
The History of Our Solar System
Or rather the N-Space counterpart to it. All of the same planets in our solar system such as the earth and Mars, existed in N-Space too, along with two additional planets. Mondas and an un-named fifth world.
Life evolved on almost all of the planets in the solar system and it appeared to develop in a similar fashion too. Reptiles evolved to be the dominant life forms, or among the dominant life forms on Venus, Mars and Earth, whilst Mammals also evolved on both Earth and Venus too.
Venus was split into two halves by a naturally occurring phenomenon, the flame belt, a massive 100 foot wall of fire which ran right the way across the planet.
On the warmer side of the planet reptiles evolved to be the dominant life form, whilst on the cooler side of the planet Mammals evolved to be the dominant life form.
The Venusian Reptiles evolved into Dinosaur like creatures, with a smaller race of crafty meat eaters eventually evolving into a sentient race of reptile men who would come to be known as the Treens.
The Treens, reptile men from Venus.
On the other side of the planet meanwhile a race of human like aliens evolved from creatures similar to apes, called the Therons.
The Treens, though intelligent were a savage and war like race who frequently fought with one another. The Therons meanwhile built up a highly advanced culture and very soon they were able to devise a way to cross the flame belt to where the Treens lived.
The Therons came in peace and though the Treens were aggressive to the at first, they soon realised that they could use the more advanced, but somewhat naive Therons for their own ends.
The Therons wanted to help the Treens and gave them samples of their own technology. The Treens played along and pretended to be the Therons friends. Once the Treens however had enough of the Therons technology to build their own warships, they launched an attack against the Therons.
They easily conquered the Therons. Despite the fact that the Therons were still more advanced, they were not used to war, or anywhere near as ruthless as the Treens. After enslaving the Therons, the Treens soon wished to expand outwards and conquer other races. Conquering the Therons had ironically united the warring tribes and clans. All of the Treens relished in crushing what they believed was a lesser race.
The reptillian monsters set their sights on the earth and easily conquered the much more primitive, dominant human society (Atlantis) at that time.
The Treens reigned even greater cruelty down on humanity than they did on the Therons. They shipped hordes of humans back to Venus where they would perform horrific experiments on their human captives, sometimes just for their amusement. Over time these human slaves who would undergo several mutations (including developing blue skin and bumpy foreheads) would be dubbed Atlantines by their Treen masters.
Eventually however the Therons would overthro the Treens on Venus, and would later help humanity drive their reptillian oppressors off the earth too, but unfortunately one of the Treens weapons left on earth was accidentally set off by the humans, unfamiliar with the technology.
The weapon destroyed Atlantis and very nearly wiped out humanity (though three small outposts of Atlantis would survive for many more centuries to come.)
Following this tragedy, the Therons would vow to never interfere in the affairs of other worlds ever again and they would sign a peace treaty with the Treens. The Treens, having underestimated how strong the Therons were, agreed to the treaty for now whilst they slowly built up their resources and weapons.
The Therons of course knew how treacherous the Treens were and would always make sure to maintain their technological lead over the Treens to prevent there from being another attack.
In a few instances the Treens would go back on their peace treaty and tried to attack the Therons, but it never led to another full scale war. The closest it came was when the Treens had invented a new secret weapon underground which could disrupt the environment on the Therons side of the planet. The Therons however were able to foil the Treens plans with the aid of the Doctor, then in his first incarnation.
After saving the Therons the Doctor would develop a great fondness for their society and culture and would visit them many times.
The Doctor learned a special form of Theron combat which they had used during their war with the Treens, which the Doctor came to dub Venusian Karate. Though the Doctor learned it in his first incarnation, he would use it most regularly in his third, seventh and ninth incarnations.
The Doctor also learned an advanced form of Venusian hypnosis. The Therons initially developed this form of hypnosis as a way of putting their unruly children to sleep. A kind of extreme lullaby, but they later modified it as a way of training animals. The Doctor would later use this Venusian lullaby as a way of taming the savage beast Aggedor on the planet of Peladon.
The Treens meanwhile would preform numerous experiments on themselves in an effort to, in their minds, improve their race. All emotions were repressed by the Treens, as they were regarded as a weakness. They also genetically altered their bodies to be much physically stronger, though Treens were already stronger than Therons and human beings on average, their experiments would make them considerably stronger than creatures several times their own size.
Their most significant experiment however would come in the creation of the Mekon. Mekons were Treen’s specially bred to lead them. The had enlarged craniums, and atrophied bodies. Though dependent on a hover disc to move, the Mekon’s had the intelligence of several Treens, and had a much longer life span, with each Mekon being believed to have a lifespan over 300 years.
Only two Mekons were ever created, and the second Mekon, who ruled the entire Treen race until the late 21st century would go on to become one of the most evil, feared and hated individuals in the entire history of N-Space. He led his people into centuries of bloodshed, and pointless wars. He made the Treens into monsters like the Daleks, the Sontarans and the Furons and would be responsible for the deaths of entire races and planets.
The Mekon, the tyrannical leader of the Treens and along with the Master, Davros, Servalan and the Rani, one of N-Space’s greatest monsters.
Another planet in our solar system that would produce a pitiless race of conquerors was Mondas, the identical twin planet of Earth.
Life on Mondas appears to have developed in a similar fashion to life on earth, in that a dominant race of humanoid creatures, simply known as the Mondasians evolved.
The Mondasians culture in some ways was more advanced than ours at first. They excelled at cybernetics and robotics for instance to a far greater extent than humanity, but their space faring capabilities were far more limited.
This would prove to be their undoing when Mondas began to slowly drift away from its orbit. As all life on the planet began to die, the Mondasians were forced to retreat underground and grow artificial food. However even then the race was unable to survive as conditions on the planet became too harsh and eventually the Mondasians, began to alter their own bodies to survive.
They slowly removed most of their organic components and replaced them with mechanical parts. Many of the Mondasians were driven insane from the process, and so eventually they removed their emotions as well.
In time the Mondasians became almost complete machine creatures who would become known as the Cybermen.
The Mondasian Cybermen.
The Cybermen would soon begin to alter their very planet itself. They fitted a gigantic motor around the core of the planet which effectively allowed them to pilot it through space. The Cybermen would then visit various other worlds and conquer them, converting their occupants into Cybermen. The monsters would be able to absorb technology from various planets and soon became one of the most advanced and powerful species in the galaxy.
Whilst the Cybermen built up colonies on various planets, Mondas would always remain the heart of the Cyber empire. The core of Mondas supplied all of the Cybermen with their power.
One group of Cybermen however, who had settled on Planet 14 were able to find a way to power themselves. In order to do this however these Cybermen were forced to remove the last traces of human flesh from their bodies which the Mondasians still kept. These Cybermen also upgraded themselves to be much stronger and larger than the Mondasian Cybermen.
Planet 14 Cyberman
Originally the Mondasian Cybermen had hoped to upgrade themselves in a similar fashion to the Planet 14 Cybermen, but sadly even with their empire they did not have the resources to upgrade all of the Cybermen in the same way, so the Planet 14 Cybermen were forced to remain an elite group.
The original Cybermen’s day would come when Mondas’s power source began to dry up. Having been drained by the vast numbers of Cybermen created since the Cybermen’s expansion through space, Mondas was in danger of literally breaking apart, and in order to stave this off, the Mondasian Cybermen were forced to drain the cores of various other planets across the universe. This only offered a temporary solution however, as the energy drained from each world didn’t last long.
The Cybermen soon set their sights on Earth, their old twin planet. As earth was the same size as Mondas, they hoped that the energy drained from its core would at least last them for a much longer time, until a proper solution could be devised.
Being the elite among the Cyber forces, the Cybermen from Planet 14 were sent to the earth to conquer it and make it ready for the Mondasians in the 70s. This invasion however was foiled by the actions of the Second Doctor and UNIT. The Mondasians would eventually reach the earth in the 1980s where they would successfully invade and briefly conquer earth. However Mondas ended up draining too much energy from the earth’s core, which ultimately caused Mondas to explode.
With their main power source gone, almost all of the Cybermen perished, and their empire collapsed almost overnight.
A few Cybermen would survive however. Low on power and weak, these Cybermen would slowly upgrade themselves into a new, stronger model.
Upgraded Mondasian Cybermen after the destruction of Mondas.
These Cybermen, now the last of a dying race, would attempt to conquer the earth many times. They would later successfully in overrunning Telos, an ice planet, inhabited by a race of creatures known as the Cryons. Telos was selected as it had massive refrigerator system built by the Cryons, which the Cybermen could use to preserve their dwindling power supplies.
Originally the temperature on Telos had been too cold for most life forms to survive, and so the Cryons had evolved to survive in this temperature alone, but a natural disaster on Telos caused its temperature to rise at certain points of the planet, making it impossible for the Cryons to live there. The Cryons would soon discover that eventually the temperature on all of Telos would rise, effectively wiping their race out.
The Cryons would build a massive city filled with refrigerators to preserve their race in the areas that were still cold to overcome this, but sadly this just drew the Cybermen to the planet. The Cybermen exterminated or converted the Cyrons, with only a few survivors being forced to flee underground. The Cryons would launch a number of attacks against the Cybermen (who converted their city into Cyber control.) However none of these plans worked as Cyber control simply had too many defences.
The Cybermen from Planet 14 meanwhile would go on to build up their own empire, though it wasn’t as large as the Mondasians empire and was destroyed during the original Cyber War, by the combination of humanity and the Vogons. The last of this breed of Cybermen would later be driven off of Planet 14. The reason these Cybermen lost despite being technologically more advanced than either humanity or the Vogans, was because the Vogans were able to exploit a key weakness of theirs, gold. Gold clogged up their chest units and suffocated the Cybermen. The Vogans home planet was literally made of gold and so they were able to not only harness it, but supply it to all of the Cybermen’s enemies.
Upgraded Planet 14 Cyberman during the first Cyber War
The last of the Planet 14 Cybermen following the Cyber wars would then seek out the Cybermen on Telos and the two races merged to create a new and more powerful race of Cybermen.
A merged Cyberman
These Cybermen, making Telos their new home would build a new Cyber empire, stronger than the Mondasian empire. We will take a closer look at the full history of these Cybermen later as they ended up becoming one of the most dangerous, feared and powerful races in the cosmos.
As powerful as the Cybermen and the Treens were, they paled in comparison to the most dangerous creatures to evolve in our solar system, the Fendahl.
Not much is known about the Fendahl’s history. Even their planet was simply referred to as Planet 5, but the creatures evolved to possess devastating power. Some believe that the Anti God may have altered their development in a similar way to Sutekh. Whatever the case, such was the Fendahl’s power that the Time Lords themselves would seal them within their own planet forever.
This wasn’t even just the Celestial Intervention Agency. The full High Council of the Time Lords themselves agreed that if the Fendahl were allowed to spread into the universe billions of worlds could be at stake, and so they broke their most sacred law to imprison the Fendahl before they could escape.
One Fendahl however managed to evade the Time Lords and would devastate the surface of Mars, before moving to earth where it would cause the end of the rule of the Vampires. This Fendahl’s history will be explored more when we look at the history of the earth.
The planet with the most troubled history in our solar system however was Mars. Originally a thriving planet, the Martians evolved from reptile like life forms, similar to the Treens on Venus and the Silurians on Earth. A second race of Martians meanwhile adapted to life in the oceans of the planet and would become known as the Blisk. The Blisk would build a highly advanced city at the very bottom of the biggest ocean on Mars. They would never have any kind of contact with the land dwelling Martians, considering them to be inferior.
The land dwelling Martians meanwhile, who weren’t even aware of the Blisk, were originally a peaceful and highly advanced society, but disaster would strike their world when the last of the Fendahl attacked Mars. The damage this one creature did to the red planet was inconceivable and the Martians were very nearly driven to extinction. Though they did eventually after several hundred years manage to recover, sadly their society was a mere shell of its former self. This in turn left the Martians open to attack and soon Mars would soon be conquered by a race of highly advanced insect like creatures from the Red Moon.
These Insectoids evolved a planet with a similar atmosphere to earth, but many light years from Mars. They evolved the ability to be able to survive in the vaccum of space unprotected and used this power to travel to their own, red moon. After finding a way to pilot the red moon through space, the Insectoids would use it to escape their own sun going supernova.
They would then pilot their own moon through the recesses of space, conquering various other planets to survive. They would often go into hibernation to survive the long treks between planets and solar systems.
The Insectoids are believed to have destroyed 100’s of millions of worlds across N-Space. When the creatures invaded Mars, they easily conquered the weakened surface population. The Blisk meanwhile (who the Insectoids were able to discover) were not so easy to conquer. Though the Insectoids were more numerous, the Blisk had an affinity for radiation, being able to absorb it into their bodies. Radiation was a particular weakness of the Insectoids, and this coupled with the fact that the Blisk were so much stronger than the Insectoids physically meant that one Blisk could slaughter dozens of Insectoids effortlessly. The Insectoids had only ever really relied on their sheer numbers, and their ability to cancel out other life forms technology by harnessing the magnetic powers on their planet.
After a brief war, the Insectoids and the Blisk agreed to a peace treaty with one another. The Blisk did not care about the land dwelling Martians and were happy to let the Insectoids use them for all their were worth.
Whilst most of the Insectoids moved on with the Red Moon after using the surface of Mars for all it was worth, a few decided to stay. They hoped that they could make Mars their new home and enslaved the few land dwelling Martians that were left. The Insectoids would force their Martian slaves to harvest food for them from Mars and would generally mistreat them. They even kept some Martians as pets.
Eventually the Insectoids who stayed would refer to themselves as Martians and they would later come into contact with a race known as the Daemons. The Daemons had come to earth after the destruction of the Vampires. They had helped humanity build up a highly advanced culture, Atlantis.
The Insectoids would help the Daemons develop humanity and Insectoid DNA would even be fused to various human beings in the experiment. Ultimately however the Insectoids would later be overcome by King Ghidorah.
The Daemons did not help the Insectoids battle Ghidorah, as they felt that with the technology they had already given them, the Insectoids should be able to defeat the monster themselves. The Daemons believed in guiding what they saw as lesser races, but they would at the same time not fight their battles for them. If a lesser race did not live up to their potential then the Daemons would even in some instances destroy them.
The Insectoids ultimately even with the Daemons technology were not able to beat back Ghidorah (the Daemons greatly underestimated the Dragon.) The surface of Mars was destroyed , and the Insectoids of Mars were nearly wiped out. The few Insectoids who survived Ghidorah’s attack would later be killed off by their own Martian servants.
Unfortunately the land Martians couldn’t celebrate their new found freedom from the Insectoids. Not only had Mars been left in a worse state after Ghidorah’s attack than ever before, but the Blisk would soon rise from the deep and overrun their Martian cousins.
The Blisk had simply minded their own business away from the actions of the Daemons and the Insectoids. They had taken a few land dwelling Martians as slaves, but otherwise they kept themselves to themselves.
When King Ghidorah attacked their world, the Blisk at first aided the Insectoids, but when it became apparent that none of their weapons could beat back Ghidorah, the Blisk retreated, and hoped that Ghidorah would not notice them beneath the waves. Sure enough, after destroying the Insectoids whole civilization, Ghidorah would simply move onto another world to destroy.
The Blisk had grown terrified of the recent invasions of their planet. Whilst they had been able to avoid being conquered up until now, they knew that soon their world would fall victim to a stronger race and so they were determined that they would be a strong enough power that no one would ever take them on.
The Blisk took over their Martian cousins simply to use as an expendable workforce, and harvesting the few resources there were left on Mars, the Blisk were able to venture out into space and conquer other worlds. They built a strong, but small empire and soon became one of the most advanced races in their galaxy.
The ocean dwelling Martians, the Blisk. The Blisk evolved from the same ancestors as the land Martians, but they ultimately split off into two separate species.
Unfortunately however whilst they could have become a major power in time, the Blisk got too cocky too soon and attacked a Furon colony. Not knowing the full extent of the Furon’s powers, the Furons waged a truly brutal retaliation and the war between the two races waged on for a few years. Despite the fact that they were completely outmatched by the Furons, the Blisk put up a good fight, but ultimately the Furons won. They used devastating weapons to destroy the oceans of Mars where the Blisk dwelled.
The Furons attack saw the final death of Mars. No life would ever grow on its surface ever again.
Only one Blisk ship escaped which would later, after falling through a time fissure land on earth in Russia.
A few land dwelling Martians would escape during the Furon wars by retreating underground. There they would remain for many centuries. Much like the Mondasians they grew food through artificial sunlight, and lived a desperate miserable existence.
Some of the land dwelling Martians retreated back to the surface and tried to live there. They tried to terrorform the surface and even modified their bodies to survive the new rough terrain.
Much like the Blisk before them these Martians began to believe after having suffered for so many thousands of years that they would need to conquer other life forms and become a force to be reckoned with. They believed their earlier peaceful ways had made them such easy prey for the Blisk and the Insectoids.
The Martians would go under the new name of Ice Warriors.
After centuries of persecution, enslavement, and seeing their planet slowly be destroyed by invading forces, the gentle Martians developed a barbaric, war like culture and became the Ice Warriors.
The Ice Warriors realized that Mars would not be suitable as the base of their new empire, so they soon sought out a new world. Initially the Ice Warriors set their sights on earth and sent a scout ship commanded by Varga, a celebrated member of their race to investigate the planet. Varga’s ship however crashed and sunk deep beneath the earth where it would remain for hundreds of thousands of years.
Following this the Ice Warriors would attempt to invade the earth, but the Doctor in his 9th incarnation would foil their plans. After this failed invasion attempt the Ice Warriors, though never wanting to back down from a fight, knew that they couldn’t risk losing more men as they were so low in number, so they would flee beyond the solar system to an uninhabited planet where they would build up their forces and build up a massive empire that conquered many star systems.
The Ice Warriors would become a feared and hated race and subject other species to the same kind of brutality that they themselves were the victims of for centuries.
The Martians who remained underground meanwhile would in contrast, remain a relatively peaceful, unassuming race, hidden underground, not just because of the state of the surface of their planet, but also so that no life form could find them.
These Martians also remained in their original form too.
The underground Martians.
Eventually the Ice Warriors empire would fall however and they would be forced to return to their home planet in the early 21st century.
They would attempt to take control of the earth and make it the basis of a new Martian empire, but these attempts were foiled by the Doctor. Eventually the Ice Warriors would revoke their evil ways and end up becoming allies of the earth and other races. They remained warriors, but they would only ever fight to defend other races from conquerors. They became heroes, celebrated across the universe. Arguably their greatest hour would come during the Furon wars, but more on that later.
The Ice Warriors would also eventually settle on a new uninhabited planet that through terrorforming came to resemble the Mars of thousands of years ago. This world was dubbed New Mars. The cave dwelling Martians would similarly finally leave their planet during the 30th century and settle in the Andromeda galaxy.
Despite their troubled beginnings, the Martians through the Ice Warriors and the underground Martians would go on to be among the most successful races of N-Space, surviving for millions of years.
Aside from Earth, Marts, Venus, Mondas and the 5th Planet, life also developed on a few other worlds in our solar system including Mercury, and Saturn as well as one of its moons. The civilizations on these planets however were not anywhere near as advanced as those of Mars, Venus and ultimately earth itself would later become, but they still flourished.
The Mercurians make first contact with human beings in the 21st century.
The History of Earth
Our planet’s counterpart in N-Space appeared to have a similar history to ours for the most part until the later 20th century.
The year 1986 was when the history of earth in N-Space made a huge divergence from our own. The invasion of the Cybermen brought aliens to the public’s attention, and the technology they left behind allowed mankind to progress in N-Space more in 100 years than we most likely will in 500.
However whilst the Cyber invasion is when things make a noticable change, there were several alien incursions throughout mankind’s history before and extraterrestrials would also have a massive influence on the development of humanity, albeit usually from behind the scenes. Their existence would be covered up throughout most of humanity’s history until the 1980s.
We will briefly look over the areas in which N-Space’s version of earth was different to our version, before looking at its full history from the 20th century on.
The N-Space version of Earth, just as in our universe, formed about 4 billion years ago. At some early point in the planets history a time fissure formed above the planets surface. The time fissure would remain there throughout the rest of the planets history. The time fissure was very unpredictable. It could only throw those who entered it forward into the future, but it could be anything from several millenia, to several centuries, decades, even just a few hours. It would also change size frequently too, and in a few instances would even spread to the sky of earth, though it never became big enough to engulf the planet.
Nevertheless many earth space crafts and even fighter jets would be lost through this fissure (as would some alien vessels such as the last Blisk warship.)
Originally the N-Space version of earth was incapable of supporting life. That would change however when the last spaceship belonging to a race known as the Jageroth landed on the earth. The Jageroth were a cruel, callous, war like race who had caused their own extinction through a series of interplanetary wars.
Their ship landed on earth, then a barren rock for repairs. However their leader Scaroth, was terrified that they were exposed on this planet, and so he ordered that their ship take off. Underestimating how damaged the ship was (and ignoring the wise warnings of his subordinates.) Scaroth’s actions doomed his race.
Their ship exploded and only Scaroth himself survived, though he was splintered throughout various points of human history. The splintered versions of Scaroth would attempt to push humanity forward to the point where they could develop time travel, and allow Scaroth to go backwards in time and stop himself from pushing the button and dooming his race. Versions of Scaroth were known to have appeared during the dawn of early man, where he taught humans how to use fire, he also appeared in ancient Egypt, the rennaisance era and in the 20th century, playing key roles in the advancement of man in all cases.
The radiation from the explosion of the Jageroth’s ship ignited the primordial soup on earth, and caused it to develop into the first simple celled organisms from which all life on earth from the elephant to the Dinosaur to man would evolve.
Following this life appeared to developed in a similar fashion to our world, with the first simple celled organisms gradually evolving into more complex life forms, including the first insects, amphibians and later reptiles.
After the Jageroth, the first alien to visit the earth was Light. Desperate to catalogue all life forms on the planet, Light would be kept on the earth for many millions of years as all the life forms he catalogued, kept changing, kept evolving so he would have to start again. Light eventually gave up and went into a deep sleep beneath the earth at round about the time of early man, with the Neanderthals being among the last life forms he cataloged.
The continents of earth were originally all merged into one supercontinent called Pangia just like in our world too, though gradually over the course of several million years they would assume their modern form.
Close to 300 million years ago, a group of reptiles known as the Synapsids would evolve to become the dominant life forms and rule for close 50 million years. Ultimately however the Synapsids would almost be driven to extinction by a natural disaster that struck the planet earth at the end of the Permian era.
Only a few small Synapsids survived who would eventually evolve into the first mammals.
Another group of reptiles known as the Archosaurs would produce several species such as Crocodillians, Pterosaurs the flying reptiles, and Dinosaurs who would by the end of the Triassic period, become the dominant life forms on earth, replacing the Synapsids.
The Dinosaurs would go on to rule the earth for 150 million years. They evolved into many different forms, from giant herbivores such as the mighty Sauropods, to armoured Dinosaurs such as Triceratops, and Anklyosaurus, to massive killer Dinosaurs such as Tyrannosaurus Rex, Spinosaurus and Allosaurus, to small and nimble killers such as Velociraptor and Deinonychus.
The most successful breed of Dinosaur however were the Silurians. These creatures evolved from small meat eating Dinosaurs, (specifically relatives of Dinosaurs like Troodont, and Velociraptor.)
At some point in the Cretaceous period, the Silurians ancestors developed much more advanced brains than other Dinosaur species, and adopted an upright, bipedal posture, similar to humans (albeit several million years earlier.)
A Silurian, a member of the first civilization ever to develop on the earth.
The Silurians soon came to build a highly advanced and peaceful civilization that would last for many millions of years. They did develop space travel, but they never felt the need to colonize other worlds as they were able to harness the natural resources of their planet in a more efficient way to humanity and did not have such a large population problem.
One group of Silurians would come to develop a civilization under the oceans of the earth. Over the course of several millions of years, their bodies would naturally begin to adapt to the ocean, resulting in them developing into their own separate sub species, who would come to be known as the Sea Devils.
Unlike the Blisk and the land dwelling Martians however, the Silurians and the Sea Devils would remain in contact with each other and would develop a very close relationship with one another.
The Silurians however would be invaded by a race of hostile aliens known as the Helestians. The Helestians much like the later Treens simply conquered other races for scientific study. Though not being a major power in the galaxy, the Helestians were still far ahead of the Silurians and so they were able to conquer them relatively easily.
A group of rebellious Silurian scientists however, working from underground away from their cruel Helestian oppressors would begin to experiment with Dinosaur DNA in an effort to create living weapons that could drive the Helestians from their world.
Eventually the Silurian scientists were successful and created a gigantic, mutated Tyrannosaurus Rex, so large that its toe was bigger than a normal Tyrannosaurus. This mutant was also much more intelligent than a normal T-Rex would be, having a level of sentience that rivaled almost that of the Silurians themselves. Its skin was so strong that it could withstand the strongest lasers, and it could also absorb radiation into its body with no ill effect either.
Size comparison of the Silurians mutant Tyrannosaurus Rex with a regular Tyrannosaur.
The mutant T-Rex would single handedly wipe out the Helestians invasion force and drive the aliens from the earth.
Following this the Silurians would not only create more mutant Tyrannosaurus’ but also mutated versions of other giant Dinosaurs including Ankylosaurus, and even long extinct species such as Spinosaurus, and Giganotosaurus who the Silurians were able to bring back from the dead via advanced cloning.
Plants were also mutated to be big enough to feed the Anklyosaurs, and similarly giant versions of herbivores such as Hadrosaurs were created (albeit without enhanced intelligence) for the predators such as Tyrannosaurus to hunt.
These giant Dinosaurs would be used to defend the earth from future alien incursions for many million of years by the Silurians. One such invasion was by a group of time travelling Daleks who hoped to exterminate the earth, a major enemy of theirs in the past when they believed it would be more vulnerable. Unfortunately for the Daleks they got a nasty surprise when they came face to face with the Silurians mutant Dinosaurs. Even then however the Daleks were still able in the Mezozic jungles to construct a weapon that very nearly ignited the core of the planet and burned it into nothing. Fortunately however the first Doctor working with the Silurians was able to foil their scheme and defeat the Daleks. Following this the Doctor would develop a kinship with the Silurians and would come to view them as one of his favorite species alongside humanity.
Sadly however the Silurians would soon face another hostile race of aliens in the shape of the Brain Spawn, one of the Anti God’s most dangerous and evil creations. The first invasion from the Brain Spawn would be defeated by the Dinosaurs (marking the first time they had lost in over 10000 years,) the leader of the Brain Spawn would personally launch the next attack. Being far larger and more powerful, the leader of the Brain Spawn would slaughter billions of Dinosaurs, and Silurians, and almost kill off all of the Silurians giant mutants too.
Two mutant Tyrannosaurus Rex’s, a male and a female would finally succeed in wounding the Brain Spawn’s leader however, after which his army, now powerless were easily overpowered by the two Tyrannosaurus’ who devoured many of the Brains before they fled.
Phillip J Fry later discovers in the early 31st century that the Brain Spawn invaded earth 65 million years ago. The Brain Spawn had killed so many Dinosaurs that it incorrectly believed that it was the reason they died out.
After Brain Spawn’s invasion of the earth, the Silurians were greatly weakened. Many Dinosaur species had been killed off completely by the Brain Spawn whilst others populations were so badly weakened that they would never recover.
Sadly before the Silurians could recover, yet another alien force would come to earth, with much more devastating results for the Silurians.
In the far future the Cybermen had intended to launch a space ship filled with high explosives to the earth which would completely destroy it. Unfortunately for the Cybermen however their own time travel technology accidentally caused the vessel to travel backwards in time to the age of the Dinosaurs.
The Silurians were able to detect its presence before it actually materialized. Knowing the effects this large object would have on the planet and with no way of stopping it, or retreating into space due to their resources having been depleted by the Brain Spawn invasion, the Silurians were forced to retreat underground where they placed themselves into a state of suspended animation. The Silurians knew that the earth would be devastated by the attack and so they hoped that they could wait it out underground and then re-emerge when the earth had recovered and rebuild their society.
Several Dinosaurs were placed into suspended animation tubes below the ground too, including many of their mutants. The two mutant Tyrannosaurus’ who had saved the earth from the Brain Spawn were now heroes among the Silurians, and so they were placed in a special chamber together. The two had actually mated, and the female had recently laid an egg which was put into stasis next to her. 65 million years later in the year 1954, the island these two Tyrannosaurs were buried beneath would be struck by an atomic bomb. The two Dinosaurs’ preservation chambers were destroyed by the bomb, but the Dinosaurs themselves survived due to their mutated metabolism and awoke. Sadly however the Tyrannosaurs absorbed vast amounts of radiation as a result and mutated to an even greater extent. They both grew even larger, stronger, and developed the ability to breath a kind of atomic blast from their mouths.
The Tyrannosaurs would both come to be known as Godzilla by the inhabitants of the island and later the rest of the world too. The female would attack Tokyo and cause massive destruction, before being destroyed by a super weapon known as the Oxygen Destroyer.
The male meanwhile though initially beginning as an enemy to man would later ironically become a hero, defending the earth from various other threats, including most notably King Ghidorah, who would become his greatest enemy. We will be taking a look at the history of this particular Tyrannosaur and its complicated relationship with humanity in a much greater detail during the second section.
Various other mutant Dinosaurs created by the Silurians would also be awoken from the Silurians chambers deep underground and further mutated by the testing of atomic weapons in the twentieth century including Anguirus (an Anklyosaurus), Gorosaurus (a Giganotosaurus), Titanosaurus (a Spinosaurus), Rodan (a Pterosaur) and Barugon, (a Triceratops)
Not all of these mutant Dinosaurs would be as friendly to mankind as Godzilla however.
The Silurians mutant Tyrannosaurus, mutated to an even greater extent by the weaponry of modern man. This Tyrannosaurus who would come to be known as Godzilla. Though starting out as one of the greatest threats to mankind, Godzilla would ironically become a hero to humanity and protect the earth just as he had done 65 million years ago from various alien and homegrown threats, such as most notably King Ghidorah.
After the Silurians and their aquatic cousins the Sea Devils went into hibernation, the Cybermen’s ship struck the earth and the Dinosaurs, who were already in decline due to the Brainspawns attack, were wiped out just as in our universe.
Mammals would soon emerge to become the dominant life forms in the Dinosaurs absence. There would be one island however were Dinosaurs still roamed thanks to the actions of the Silurians. Skull Island.
Beneath this island there was a massive hall of preservation units containing specimens from several hundred species of Dinosaurs, including Tyrannosaurus Rex’s, Brontosaurus’, Stegosaurus’, and Pteranodon’s .
When the landmass originally split off from the mainland, it disrupted the incubation chambers and whilst some of the Dinosaurs died, others were revived and managed to escape to the surface.
A few mammal species had naturally gone with the island when it split off, including various species of Sabre Tooth Cat, Mammoth’s, boars, and a species of gigantic Ape known as Gigantopithicus.
Gigantopithicus would over the course of several million years evolve to be larger in order to deal with the giant meat eating Dinosaurs such as Tyrannosaurus Rex. Over time Gigantopithicus would evolve into a giant ape called Megaprimatus Kong, which stood over 25 feet tall.
Most other mammalian species on the island would be killed off by the Dinosaurs however. The Dinosaurs flourished in this environment for over a million years, but parts of Skull island would continue to split off due to unstable fissures that existed under the island.
At some point a group of humans would make their way to Skull Island and build a highly advanced society. These humans are believed to have fled following the destruction of Atlantis by the Treens.
The Skull Island society would last for several thousand years. They lived in the center of the island and were protected from the island’s predators by a gigantic wall, which their dead were buried outside of.
The Skull Islanders society would eventually fall when more and more pieces of Skull Island began to break off and drift into the sea. The Dinosaurs who had normally lived on the jungles outside the city were forced into the center, and the Skull Islanders only defence against the Dinosaurs, their massive wall, began to break apart due to changes in the landmass.
The Dinosaurs killed off the human population of Skull Island and as the island, with its so many different species were forced together then life became harder, competition became fiercer and many species were not able to survive.
Among the unlucky species were Megaprimatus Kong. Strictly herbivores, the Kongs were too big and powerful for most meat eating Dinosaurs to prey on, but the top predators on the island, the Tyrannosaurus Rex’s soon began to target the Kongs when some of their other prey species began to die out. An average Megaprimatus Kong could at least defend itself against a fully grown Tyrannosaurus, but sadly the Tyrannosaurs outnumbered the Kongs, and gradually over the course of several generations the Kongs were killed off until only two male specimens remained, the largest of which would later be dubbed “King Kong” by human explorers.
One smaller section of Skull Island however which still contained some of the human population and Megaprimatus Kongs, as well as plenty of Dinosaurs had earlier drifted off, many miles away from Skull Island. This island would become known as the Island of Pharoh. Just as on the main skull Island however, the large meat eating Dinosaurs were able to kill off most of the Kongs and become the dominant life forms, though the humans still survived, as a piece of the massive wall from Skull Island which survived, separated the section of the island the natives lived on from the Dinosaurs’ territory.
Back on Skull Island meanwhile a similar situation would develop. One piece of the massive wall survived on Skull Island, and it too separated a tiny section of the island from the rest of the crumbling landmass.
In time a group of humans would come to live on the tiny section behind the wall. These humans were not descendants of the original Skull Islanders however. Instead these people were the descendants of humans who had been shipwrecked on Skull Island.
Safe from the Dinosaurs on the other side, the new inhabitants would still nevertheless come to worship one of the two final specimens of Megaprimatus Kong, King Kong as their god, and regularly make sacrifices to the great ape.
They would every few years place one of their women up on an altar outside the wall, after which the giant ape would take them back to the jungle. It is believed that Kong would keep these women around as a source of company. Being seemingly the last of his kind, the great ape felt a certain kinship with human beings, as they were fellow mammals, unlike the scaly and hostile reptiles he lived with. Kong would protect the young women who were offered up to him as sacrifices, but ultimately however in a dangerous place like Skull Island, all of Kongs “brides” would be killed by the hostile creatures that he lived alongside, such as Tyrannosaurus Rex.
Kong would develop a particular hatred for T-Rex’s in particular as they had killed his entire parents, and his siblings right in front of him as a child. They were also be responsible for the deaths of his own mate and children too. Though little did Kong know, one of his children had survived the T-Rex attack. Later dubbed “Kiko” by western explorers, this little ape had been forced to jump of a cliff into a massive lake in order to escape the hungry Tyrannosaurus that had attacked Kong’s lair. Being subsequently washed down the lake to the opposite end of the island, Kiko on his own would be forced to retreat to the dark caves of Skull Island for protection against the giant Dinosaurs that stalked the land.
Kong assumed that his child was dead and never bothered to search for him. Ironically however whilst Kong desperately searched for companionship, little did he know his son was barely clinging to life on the other side of the island. Skull Island would be discovered in the 1930s by modern man which would lead to disastrous consequences both for those who discovered it, the natives and for King Kong, but more on that later.
Skull Island wouldn’t be the only place Dinosaurs would continue to roam after the end of the Cretaceous period. In South America another of the Silurians underground preservation chambers was disturbed by movements in the earth, which awoke the Dinosaurs. The Dinosaurs would come to live on a plateau high above the Amazon rain forest, created by the movements in the earth which had disrupted the chambers in the first place.
Among the Dinosaur species that would come to live on this plateau were Brontosaurus, Allosaurus, Tyrannosaurus Rex, Triceratops, Stegosaurus, Agathaumas, Hadrosaurs and Pteranodons too.
Tyrannosaurus Rex was the top predator on the plateau, though Allosaurus was by far and away the most numerous. Both predators tended to hunt different prey. Tyrannosaurus using its superior strength, hunted the armoured Dinosaurs such as Triceratops and Agathuamas, whilst the Allosaurs with their hatchet like jaws that allowed them to cleave off giant sections of meat, focused on Sauropods just as they had done millions of years earlier.
This Plateau would later be discovered by Professor George Challenger in the 1920s, where it would be dubbed The Lost World. The Lost World would go on to outlast Skull Island. Whilst Skull Island would ultimately sink in the 30s, The Lost World endured throughout most of human history.
Just as in our universe, mankind evolved from simian ancestors and soon rose up to become top predators, but the history of man in N-Space was somewhat more troubled.
Not long after man started to build the first semblance of a civilization in N-Space, then he was invaded and conquered by the space Vampires.
The bloodsuckers would rule humanity for over 1000 years, during which time human beings were literally reduced to the level of animals. The Vampires kept their human victims in cages, tortured them for their own amusement, and held massive human hunts.
The Vampires however would soon become the victims an alien invasion themselves when the last of the Fendahl visited the earth. The Fendahl, a vastly power entity, and the Vampires using their advanced technology, destroyed one another in the resulting battle.
Only a few Vampires survived the slaughter, and they were subsequently overthrown by humanity, though a few of these Vampires would survive, and hiding in the shadows would go on to infect other humans throughout history, keeping the Vampire race alive, even if they were no long dominant. Vampires would subsequently persist throughout almost all of human history, with Vampire myths appearing in almost every culture on earth.
Not long after the Vampires were overthrown, mankind would be visited by another race of highly advanced life forms, the Daemons.
The Daemons were one of the oldest life forms in the galaxy. They had been visited by one of the Anti God’s Demons known as Daemos early in their own history.
Daemos would attempt to mold the ancestors of the Daemons into being his army to conquer N-Space, which resulted in the Daemons taking on a Demonic like appearance. Their planet would come to be named Daemos too.
The Demon, Daemos would be destroyed by one of God’s messengers. His influence on the Daemons, (as he had re-named them, after himself) would remain throughout the rest of their history.
The Daemons no longer wished to simply destroy all other life forms in the name of their fallen god, but they were still utterly ruthless creatures, devoid of any compassion thanks to Daemos’ influence.
The Daemons would view themselves as being above all other life forms in the universe, and so they would experiment on various lesser races. If they believed a race had potential then they would elevate them to their level of technology. The process may take thousands and thousands of years, but the Daemons did not care. They had long life spans and would go into hibernation if necessary.
The Daemons first visited the earth during the end of the ice age, many thousands of years before the Vampires invaded the earth.
They noticed a conflict between two similar races, humanity and the Neanderthals and decided that humanity had more potential, so they helped them overcome Neanderthal man.
Following this the Daemons would continue to explore other worlds and influence other life forms, before returning to the earth after the fall of the Vampires to see how their chosen race had progressed.
Believing them to be a success, they helped mankind progress to an even greater level, with mankind eventually building up a massive civilization known as Atlantis. The Atlanteans would also later discover some of the Silurians technology underground.
They did not revive any of the Silurians, but they did create several giant monsters to try and protect their race, just as the Silurians had done. They lacked the refinement of any of the Silurians however, and most of the monsters they created died.
Their biggest success’ would be a race of gigantic Turtle like creatures which they came to name Gamera.
A mix mash of various different mutants, there were 20 or so Gamera’s created by the Atlanteans, all of differing levels of power, with the strongest being a large male. The Gameras were conditioned to always put the safety of children in dangerous situations above all else.
Gamera, the Atlanteans attempt to create the perfect defender of earth.
The Gamera’s would successfully defeat a pack of Gyaos who attempted to attack the earth. They were all destroyed by the Gamera’s who literally ripped them to pieces. After the Gyaos’ death the remains of the monsters would be experimented on by the Atlanteans in an attempt to create their own Gyaos that would be loyal to them. Their first such attempt went rogue however, though it would be defeated by the combined might of the Gamera’s. The chemicals the Atlantean’s had used, had actually made the Gyaos far stronger in many respects than most other Gyaos (it had also however caused it to develop a sensitivity to sunlight, and its skin to turn brown, unlike other Gyaos’ whose skin was silver.)
After its defeat the Gyaos would be placed into suspended animation with the Atltantean’s hoping that they could revive and control it at a later date. It would remain trapped however until the 1960s, as the Atlanteans due to other more important matters, would forget about it, though other experiments with the Gyaos DNA would continue leading to the creation of a second Gyaos, though unlike the first, this one could reproduce. Much like the first Gyaos however it would be kept in suspended animation until it could be controlled.
During these golden years of humanity, the Daemons and humanity would also come into contact with the Insectoids of Mars who helped to guide their humanity too. The Insectoids would also begin to incorporate elements of the Daemons culture into their own, and even took on a more horned appearance. Both the Daemons and the Insectoids working together would later go on to perform experiments on humanity, where they would fuse DNA from the Insectoids into early humans bodies, in a further effort to elevate their race.
The Insectoids however would later be wiped out by King Ghidorah, when the golden dragon attacked the surface of Mars. The Daemons did not help the Insectoids believing that they should be strong enough to defend themselves from Ghidorah, and if not, then they would be a failed experiment. The Daemons prevented the humans from sending the Gamera’s to try and help the Insectoids too, though even with the ban, 5 Gamera’s would be sent to try and stop Ghidorah, though none of them were the strongest male, and they were all killed.
Following the Insectoids destruction, King Ghidorah would visit the earth, but he would be driven off by the 15 remaining Gameras. Ghidorah managed to kill all but one of the Gameras, the strongest male who was still nevertheless greatly weakened as a result.
The Daemons meanwhile would leave the earth soon after the Gameras defeated Ghidorah. They were called back to deal with a civil war on their own planet. Some of the Daemons wanted to follow their gods original plan and destroy all other life forms in the universe, whilst others preferred merely to study and experiment on lesser life forms.
The Daemons would wipe themselves out in the conflict and destroy their planet. Only one of the Daemons would remain on earth, Azal who had gone into hibernation.
Ironically not long after Azal went to sleep, the earth would be invaded by the Treens (it is believed that the Treens monitored the earth, trying to find a way to defeat the Daemons, until eventually whenthe Daemons left, the Treens saw a golden opportunity.)
The Atlanteans sent in the last Gamera, but he was so weak the Treens were able to defeat him. He did hold them off for a short while, but the lizard monsters were able to bury Gamera beneath the ice in a sneak attack, where he would remain for thousands of years.
The Treens actions would eventually lead to the destruction of Atlantis, ironically just as the Daemons had hoped. The Treens conquered the Atlantines and shipped several of them back to Venus for experimentation. The Therons would, after overthrowing the Treens on their home planet, defeat the reptillian monsters on earth too. Sadly however towards the end of the war on earth, the Atlantines would accidentally set off a Treen weapon which destroyed their entire society and devastated the surface of earth.
Only three small outposts of Atlantis survived. Two of these were under the ocean, whilst the third existed on land. The two ocean outposts were far more advanced, though they would remain hidden from the outside world for thousands of years, with one surviving until the 20th century, and another surviving until the Dalek invasion in the 22nd century.
One of the two outposts under the ocean would much as the Silurians had done many millions of years earlier, place themselves into suspended animation. They believed that their planet had become almost uninhabitable, and hoped to emerge at a point when it had recovered.
Having remembered what happened to the Silurians, they created several monsters and placed them into suspended animation so that when the time the Atlanteans would awaken, their monsters could destroy any other life forms who may have emerged in the interim.
The monsters they created were Megalon, a gigantic insect like creature, Manda, a gigantic reptile like beast, and the second Gyaos.
The land outpost of Atlantis meanwhile was more primitive. Its inhabitants also, incorrectly believed that they were the only humans left on earth after the Treen invasion, with the land outside of their city being a desolate wasteland.
The land outpost of Atlantis would be destroyed just a few hundred years after the Treen invasion, thanks to the Masters actions in trying to gain control of Chronos, the most powerful of the Chronovores. The Masters actions ended up freeing the Chronovore who subsequently destroyed Atlantis in his rage, killing every single one of its people.
Thousands of years later when Azal woke up, he would incorrectly believe that the Daemons had destroyed Atlantis for being a failure.
What was left of mankind, scattered and fragmented would take 100s of years to recover. During this period a group of pre clone Furons landed on the earth after their war with the Blisk. They would mate with human beings causing Furon DNA to be fused with most humans across the globe.
Many centuries after the Furons visit, the God and the Anti God would have their final battle which would end in the Anti God’s defeat, though not before the Anti God created Satan. In the thousands of years before Jesus would finally defeat Satan, the monster would enjoy toying with humanity. It didn’t overrun humanity like the Vampires. Instead Satan would simply influence humanity in negative ways and make them slaughter one another in various wars.
At some point after the final battle of the Anti God and God, the recorded history of the human race would begin.
From this point on there doesn’t appear to be much difference between the history of N-Space’s version of earth and ours until the 20th century, though there were a few notable alien incursions, which would be covered up to the general public, or misunderstood as being something other than an alien invasion until the end of the 20th century.
Jesus Christ, a powerful alien for instance and servant of God would be mistaken for the son of God when he visited the earth, to finally defeat Satan in the year 36 AD, and seal the monster deep within the earth in a cannister where he would remain for 2000 years.
The Doctor would also become involved in many important events in human history too. It was the Doctor who gave the Greeks the idea for the Trojan horse, and it was also the Doctor who (unintentionally) gave the idea of burning Rome to Nero, when he accidentally set fire to Nero’s map of Rome.
In addition to this the Osirans had their final battle with Sutekh the Destroyer on earth many thousands of years ago too at the dawn of Egyptian civilization. They managed to finally defeat the monster, after which they sealed him up deep beneath the black Pyramid on earth. Sutekh however was actually kept in his prison by a special device called the Eye of Horus, which was in turn kept within the Pyramid of Mars (by that point Mars was seemingly a dead world, and it was the Osirans who built the Pyramid of Mars.)
The human population of ancient Egypt would subsequently model their society on the Osirans, whilst the Osirans war with one another entered into the mythology of their planet.
The Daleks also briefly visited Egypt, long after the Osirans had left. They were pursuing the Doctor, then in his first incarnation after he had stolen a vital component for their super weapon, the Time Destructor. Unfortunately the Daleks were able to capture the Doctors companions and force him to hand the Time Destructor over to them (though the Doctor would successfully follow them back to their base on Kembel in the future.) The Daleks were attacked by several Egyptians who believed them to be Demons. Naturally the Daleks slaughtered hundreds of Egyptians, but still, armed with only their primitive sticks and rocks the Egyptians were able to overpower and kill one Dalek at least.
At some point the Exillons also visited the earth and would play a role in helping to build many of its ancient civilizations.
In the 10th century of England, a Sontaran warrior named Linx crashed into the earth after a battle with Rutan scouts. Desperate and in need of help, Linx made a deal with a warrior named Irongron.
Linx promised to give Irongron advanced weaponry that would allow him to conquer the world, as long as Irongron gave the Sontaran a safe place to repair his ship.
Linx however knew that he could not get Irongron’s men to help repair the ship. Not only would they have no understanding, but they also had no equipment either. Using very basic Sontaran time travel technology, Linx was able project an image of himself as far as the 20th century, where he would begin to abduct various scientists back to the 10th century. Linx worked the scientists almost to death to repair his ship.
This of course drew the attention of the 3rd Doctor and UNIT, and the 3rd Doctor would later follow Linx to the 10th Century where he would confront the Sontaran and Irongron. The Doctor tried pleading with Linx, telling him that by giving Irongron weapons this advanced in the 10th century would alter their history in devastating ways. Linx however had no interest in the development of humans, only in returning to his glorious cause.
The Doctor was eventually able to send all of the scientists home, whilst Linx ultimately killed Irongron, after the latter incorrectly assumed he was trying to turn on him. Linx himself was killed when Hal the Archer shot his probic vent with an arrow. Hal shot Linx just as he was taking off which caused his ship to explode, destroying all of the advanced weapons Linx had intended to give Irongron in the process and preserving the timeline.
Linx, the Sontaran trapped in 10th Century England.
The renegade Time Lord known as the Monk would also attempt to alter human history in the year 1066, by destroying the Viking invaders. The Monk genuinely believed that he was changing history for the better, as he believed Harold had the potential to be a great king that would cause England to enter a golden age.
The 1st Doctor however intervened and stopped the Monk’s plan. He also shrunk the inside of his TARDIS to prevent him from interfering in more events throughout history.
The Monk however would later find a way to repair his TARDIS and would pursue the Doctor throughout time and space for revenge, beginning their feud.
The renegade Time Lord known as The Monk in 1066.
In the year 1666, earth was visited again by aliens, specifically a renegade group from a race known as the Terileptiles. The Terileptiles were a major force in the galaxy at that point, and would continue to be for centuries to come. Eventually they would be wiped out in a war with another race known as the Hakolian. The two species had been sworn enemies since they both first began to expand into space. They did briefly call a truce however at some point in the 15th century. As a sign of good faith, the Terileptiles even mined a rare mineral known as Tinclavic for the Hakolian, though they used their criminals as a slave labor force to do so.
The Terileptiles were a highly artistic, yet still warlike race of reptillian humanoids. They appeared to value beauty above all else, even in warfare.
The renegade Terileptiles who visited the earth hoped to exterminate the human race by finding a way to make the Plague that was already ravaging Europe, airborne and then spread it all over the entire world. The renegade Terileptiles could never return to their own planet, and hoped to make the earth their new base of operations.
The Fifth Doctor did offer to take the renegade Terileptiles to another uninhabited planet where they could live in peace, but they of course refused, arguing that what they were doing to humanity was no worse than what the humans did to lesser creatures every day.
The Doctor was able to destroy the Terileptiles plague, though in the resulting fight, a piece of Terileptiles technology ended up causing a fire, which spread its way through London, eventually leading to the great fire of London in 1666. All of the renegade Terileptiles were killed in the blaze.
In the later 19th century earth would deal with two more major threats. The first of these was when the Alien known as Light was awoken from its slumber.
Light was actually awoken by the 7th Doctor, from his spaceship buried under Gabriel Chase mansion. The alien that Light had granted immortality to in order to help survey the earth, had now gone rogue in its masters absence and sought to take over the planet. It assumed a human form named Josiah to blend in and used Gabriel Chase mansion as its base of operations. Josiah planned to assassinate Queen Victoria and take over the British empire. With there seemingly being no way to stop Josiah, the 7th Doctor summoned Light, but unfortunately Light was driven insane when he saw how much the world had changed in his absence. Light finally realized that his cataloge of all life on earth would never be complete and so he decided he was going to stop all life evolving.
At Light first thought about freezing all life on earth, and turned two young women, Mrs Pritchard and her daughter, to stone, to test the method out. Worse still the two women, were still aware and fully conscious.
Light then considered regressing all life on earth back to the primordial soup, and tested this gruesome method out on a Scotland Yard Inspector who had come to investigate the strange goings on at Perivale house.
Ultimately Light decided that he would destroy the earth and then go on to catalogue other worlds life forms, and destroy them before they could change.
The Doctor however stopped Light. He tricked the entity by telling him his collection was incomplete as other life forms had appeared when he was asleep. He also told Light about mythological creatures, and lied that they were real. Unable to cope with his collection being incomplete, or comprehend these strange mythological creatures the Doctor talked about, Light had a full breakdown and eventually committed suicide.
The living computer, simply named Control on board Light’s ship, who had changed into a human form, would soon leave to explore the universe in Light’s old ship, alongside a Neanderthal man, whom Light had preserved, named Nimrod, and a big game hunter from earth named Redvers Fenn Cooper. Josiah was kept as their prisoner as a punishment for all of his sins.
Gabriel Chase mansion would be abandoned soon after, yet it would remain for close to 100 years on the outskirts of Perivale, with many believing it to be a haunted house. Eventually in the year 1984, a young teenager, and future companion of the Doctor, named Dorothy would visit the house. Dorothy sensed that there was a great evil in the house. In reality it was the remains of Light’s consciousness scattered through the mansion. They would never be able to reform, but the evil from Light’s persona was still present, and Dorothy became so scared she burned the mansion to the ground.
Years later when Dorothy (now known by the name of Ace) was travelling with the 7th Doctor, he would take her back to Gabriel Chase mansion to discover what had happened there, and Ace would actually be present at Light’s death.
Mrs Pritchard and her long lost daughter seconds before they were both turned to stone by Light in his first attempt to prevent life from changing. The two would remain as statues for close to 100 years, conscious throughout the whole ordeal until Ace burned the house down in the early 80s, finally freeing them from their torment.
The next major threat would be from humanities own future. Magnus Greel, also known as the butcher of Brisbane had traveled to the 19th century to escape the authorities in his own time, the 50th century.
Greel had attempted to discover the secret of time travel but his experiments had led to tremendous suffering and loss of life. Eventually however Greel was able to project himself backwards in time, but doing so left him horribly mutilated.
Greel would attempt to continue his disastrous experiments in 19th century London. He was also forced to drain the life of several young women to prolong his own, after his body had been damaged by his experiments.
This drew the attention of the 4th Doctor, and two investigators Jago and Litefoot who together were able to stop Greel before his attempts to perfect his experiments would have created a rip in the very fabric of time destroying the entire earth. Greel was killed by the Doctor in the process who threw him into one of his own time machines that drained all of Greel’s bodily fluids and turned him into a husk.
Jago and Litefoot would go on to investigate more paranormal activities and creatures for the rest of their lives, and would even go on to work with the Doctor many times, across multiple incarnations.
Over the course of the next century, humanity would not only face more alien and paranormal threats, but modern man would finally discover once and for all that he was not alone in the universe.
In the next section we will look at how mankind reached new heights, survived invasions from some of the most terrible creatures of N-Space, from the Treens to the Daleks, and how humanity would survive against the mightiest creatures ever to roam the earth such as Godzilla and King Kong.
To be continued.
