Regeneration: After the Master forced Rassilon and the rest of Gallifrey back to the Time War, the Doctor realized Wilf was trapped in the nuclear booth where radiation levels had gone critical. The Doctor released him by entering into the other side and took the radiation blast. He took a “farewell tour” to see all his companions before regenerating violently inside the TARDIS.
Notable Characteristics: The Tenth Doctor generally displayed a light-hearted, talkative, easy-going and witty manner, but repeatedly demonstrated a vengeful and unforgiving streak as well. This is coupled with an intense sense of regret of the deaths of both his friends and enemies. He was openly fond of humans and their tenacity and curiosity, and had several romantic aspects both on and off screen, most notably with Rose who admits she is in love with him.
Notable Episode: The Stolen Earth & Journey’s End was a two episode arc from Season Four of the revived series. When Earth and twenty-six other planets are stolen and taken to the Medusa Cascade, it’s up to the combined forces of the Doctor, UNIT, Torchwood, Sarah Jane, and Rose to stop the perpetrators — Davros and the New Dalek Empire.
