ACE One of the Seventh Doctor's Companions. A young British girl from Perivale who had been a problem child, she had run away after her experiments with home-made gelignite blew up parts of her school. Her real first name was Dorothy. She was one of the "Wolves" of Fenric, descendents of the ancient vikings who had brought the evil entity's flask back to England. Fenric pulled her out of space and time and left her on Iceworld, where she took a job as a waitress. She accompanied the Seventh Doctor (whom she called "Professor") on his quest for the Dragonfire and helped him defeat Kane. She aided him against the Daleks, the Cybermen and the Gods of Ragnarok. Ace held Excalibur and fought Morgaine at Carbury. The Doctor then took her back to 1883 Perivale to confront her fears of the evil house, Gabriel Chase. Afterwards, Ace became instrumental in Fenric's release in 1943 Northumberland. There, she met her mother, Audrey, as a baby, and helped her grandmother, Kathleen Dudman, escape from the Haemovores. She also fell in love with the Russian Red Army Captain, Sorin. The Doctor and Ace then returned to Perivale, where she helped him fight the Master, and almost turned into one of the Cheetah People. Ace's favorite weapon was explosives, in particular nitro-nine (7G-7P). According to some accounts, Ace eventually left the Doctor to live in 1880 France, where she married one of Sorin's ancestors.

ADRASTA (LADY) Tyrannical ruler of Chloris, a world rich in vegetable matter but poor in minerals. She owned the only metal mine on Chloris, which was running out of metal. When the Tythonian ambassador, Erato, arrived on Chloris to offer to trade chlorophyll for metal, to preserve her power, Adrasta kept him prisoner in the mines (which became known as the Pit) for fifteen years. During that time, with the help of the Huntsman and his carnivorous Wolf Weeds, she prevented her people from rebelling. The Fourth Doctor and Romana discovered Erato's true nature and exposed Adrasta's duplicity. Her people turned against her and she was eventually killed by Erato (5G).
ADRIC Companion of the Fourth and Fifth Doctors. He was a young Alzarian who had earned a badge for mathematical excellence. The Fourth Doctor met Adric on Alzarius in E-Space, where he helped him and Romana solve the mystery of the Marshmen. Adric then stowed away on the TARDIS and helped the Fourth Doctor defeat the Great Vampire, and free the Tharils from Rorvik. Back in normal space, he helped the Fourth Doctor fight the Master on Traken, Logopolis and Earth. There, he watched the Fourth Doctor regenerate. Soon afterwards he was kidnapped by the Master, who used his mathematical abilities to create Castrovalva. He then fought alongside the Fifth Doctor, Nyssa and Tegan against Monarch, the Mara and the Terileptils and George Cranleigh. After fighting the Cybermen, he sacrificed himself to save Earth by staying on board a doomed spaceship, taking it back through time 65 million years until it crashed on Earth (5R-6B).
AENEAS Leader of the Trojan survivors who went on to found Rome (U).

AGGEDOR Allegedly mythical beast protecting the planet Peladon and its rulers. It turned out to be a very real creature, under the control of High Priest Hepesh, who used it to prevent his planet from joining the Federation. The Third Doctor tamed it with a song and a mirror. Later, when Hepesh tried to use Aggedor to kill the Time Lord, Aggedor killed the High Priest instead (MMM). The traitor Eckersley used a machine which projected a holographic image of Aggedor with a heat ray to take over the trisilicate mines of Peladon for Galaxy Five. The real Aggedor eventually killed Eckersley, who had taken Queen Thalira hostage, but was himself later killed in the battle (YYY).

ALLIANCE The Alliance was a loose federation between Earth, some of its colonies (independent from it
or not), and several alien powers, such as the Draconians (QQQ) and the Cyrennic Empire (5A), whose purpose was
to fight the Cybermen and the Daleks. The Alliance was probably formed during the First Cyber Wars early
in the 23rd Century (4D).
During the 25th Century, the Daleks tried to use a space plague against the Alliance (XXX). The result was the Second Dalek War, which forced the Daleks away from Skaro.
In the 26th Century, the Alliance met on Earth to discuss the renewed Cybermen threat. The Cybermen tried to sabotage the conference, and a Second Cyber Wars followed (6B).
The Daleks and the Master tried breaking apart the Alliance by fomenting a war between Earth and the Draconian Empire (QQQ). They then prepared to attack the Alliance with a huge invisible army based on Spiridon, but that plot was averted by the Third Doctor and the Thals (SSS). A Third Dalek War ensued.
All these wars depleted the resources of the Alliance, and in particular that of the older Draconian Empire. Under the pressure of Earth's growing imperialism, the Alliance eventually broke apart in the 27th Century.
The Alliance is not to be confused with the SUPREME ALLIANCE and the ICELANDIC ALLIANCE (q.v.), both Earth political entities from the 51st Century (4S).
ALLIANCE (DALEK) Gathering of aliens who joined forces with the Daleks to attack the Solar System in 4000 AD. They included Mavic Chen, Zephon, Celation, Malpha, Trantis, Beau, Warrien, Sentreal and Gearon. Most were either killed or betrayed by the Daleks (V).
ALLISON See WILLIAMS, ALLISON.
ALPHA Nickname given by the Second Doctor to one of the three "humanized" Daleks (LL).
ALPHA CENTAURI One-eyed, six-tentacled representative from the star-system Alpha Centauri. He was one of the Federation's delegates to Peladon. Even though he was a stickler for protocol and legalities, he helped the Third Doctor unmask Hepesh and Arcturus, and thereby facilitate Peladon's accession to the Federation (MMM). Fifty years later, when the Third Doctor returned to Peladon, Alpha Centauri was Federation Ambassador there. She vouched for his identity and helped him expose Azaxyr and Eckersley (YYY).

The First Doctor helped Alydon and his people defeat the branch of the Daleks who had survived in the City and were preparing to exterminate the Thals through increased radiation (B).
ALZARIANS The native Alzarians were the Marshmen who had evolved from spiders. A tribe of Marshmen further evolved into Terradonian-like humanoids, and forgot their origins. Native Alzarians shared an empathic link with each other, which could be transmitted to other species. Romana became thus affected after being bitten by an Alzarian spider (5R).
ALZARIUS Planet located in E-space upon which a Terradonian starliner crashed. Its original passengers
were killed by the native Marshmen, who evolved into Terradonian-like humanoids, forgetting their origins.
Eventually, the Fourth Doctor helped the Starliner community rediscover the truth and leave Alzarius (5R).
AMAZONIA Federation ambassador to Peladon who was impersonated by the Third Doctor (MMM).
AMBASSADORS See DIPLOMACY.

This enabled him to order his people to evacuate their village before the volcano destroyed it (6Q).
ANAT Guerilla leader from an alternate twenty-second Century where the Daleks had successfully invaded Earth after World War Three. She, Shura and Boaz went back in time to kill diplomat Sir Reginald Styles, not realizing that it was their actions which caused the war. She helped the Third Doctor defeat the Daleks (KKK).

ANCIENT HAEMOVORE The last, surviving member of the Haemovore race. One of the "Wolves" of Fenric, he was brought back in time by the evil entity to help it secure its release, and turned Northumbia villagers into pseudo-haemovores. The Seventh Doctor succeeded in convincing him that Fenric's plans would ultimately doom his race, so he mentally destroyed the pseudo-haemovores he had created and killed Fenric's host body (Capt. Sorin's) with a deadly toxin (7M). According to some accounts, his real name was Ingiger.
ANCIENT LAW OF GALLIFREY, THE Gallifreyan book dating back to the days of Rassilon. It had mysterious, physical properties and time ran backwards over it. Because it contained the location of Shada, the prison planet of the Time Lords, it was stolen by Salyavin, who used his mental powers to make the Time Lords foeget about it. Later, Salyavin (posing as Prof. Chronotis) summoned the Fourth Doctor because he wanted him to return the book to Gallifrey. But the book had been mistakenly borrowed by Chris Parsons.

ANDROGUMS Extremely strong and savage denizens of a slightly radioactive planet in the Third Zone. The Androgums were regrouped in tribes (named Grigs), linked to each other through blood ties and arcane rituals. Their primary interest, other than violence, appeared to be food. They were used as labor force by the more civilized races of the Third Zone (6W).
ANDROIDS Robots in human form. The Movellans were a race of sentient androids (5J). The Dalek
extermination team sent after the First Doctor used an android duplicate, which the Doctor destroyed (R).
The First Doctor also met realistic android versions of Dracula and the Frankenstein Monster (R).
Among master android-makers were the Kraal scientist Styggron, who devised android duplicates of the Fourth Doctor, Harry Sullivan and an entire human village (4J); the Tarans (5D); Monarch of Urbanka, who built androids with real human memories stored on silicon chips (5W); Sharaz Jek, who built android duplicates of the Fifth Doctor, Peri and Salateen and used androids to harvest the deadly spectrox on Androzani Minor (6R); the Borad, who built a blue-skinned guardian (6Y); and Bellboy of the Psychic Circus, who designed deadly android clowns (7J). The Cybermen also used faceless androids for menial surveillance work (6B).
Other noteable androids included the Auton Replicas (AAA, EEE); the Terileptils' Grim Reaper (5X); the shape-changing Kamelion (6J, 6Q) and the Raston Robot (6K). Also see DUPLICATES, REPLICAS, ROBOTS.
ANDROMEDA Spies from Andromeda (later known as "Sleepers") successfully infiltrated the Gallifreyan Matrix, choosing Earth as their base of operations. When they discovered the Andromedans' plan, the Time Lords struck back. The actions they took against Andromeda itself are unknown, but they moved Earth out of the Solar System and rechristened it Ravolox. The Ravolox Stratagem was eventually uncovered five hundred years later by the Sixth Doctor when he and Peri visited Ravolox (7A-7C). The Wirrn's breeding colonies destroyed by the Empire were located on Andromeda Gamma Epsilon (4C). Andromeda was famous for its bloodstones (5B). Sabalom Glitz's home planet, Salostopus, was located in Andromeda (7A). Castrovalva was supposed to be located in the Andromedan Phylox Series (5Z).
ANDROMEDA GAMMA EPSILON Homeworld of the Wirrn (4C).
ANDROZANI MAJOR Planet located in the Sirius sector. It was the headquarters of the Sirius Conglomerate which controlled the supplies of spectrox (6R).
ANDROZANI MINOR Twin planet of Androzani Major. It featured an intricate network of caves, where spectrox-producing giant bats lived. The Fifth Doctor and Peri became involved in a conflict over spectrox between Sharaz Jek and General Chellak on Androzani Minor. When the planet moved closer to Androzani Major, mud bursts rose from Androzani Minor's core (6R).
ANETH Peaceful planet which paid tribute to Skonnos in the form of hymetusite crystals and seven young victims, to be sacrificed to the Nimon. With the help of Seth, a young Anethian, the Fourth Doctor defeated the Nimon (5L).
ANGE One of Ace's friends from Perivale (7P).
ANICCA One of the Kinda (5Y).

ANTERIDES Star sector known to the Morestrans in the far future (4H).
ANTHROPOLOGY The study of Man and Man's history begins when Scaroth's ship exploded, creating life on
Earth around 3.5 billion years ago (5H). During the Jurassic era, the petrified hand of the Kastrian Eldrad
landed on Earth and became a fossil (4N). The various reptiles scooped up by Prof. Whitaker's time device
were also taken from the Jurassic (WWW). 140 million years ago, towards the end of the Jurassic, the powerful
alien Xeraphin visited Earth (6C).
It was during the Cretaceous era that the (misnamed) "Silurians" (BBB) and their aquatic brethren, the "Sea Devils" (LLL), ruled the Earth. Mammals must already have evolved into some kind of early primate, since on several occasions, members of both reptilian races indicated that they were familiar with this type of creature.
At the end of the Mesozoic era (65 million years ago), the Silurians and the Sea Devils were driven underground by some, as yet unknown, cosmic event. Members of the Silurian species encountered by the Third Doctor blamed it on a sudden change in the Van Allen radiation belt (BBB). Some theories include other cosmic phenomenon such as movements of the Moon, or of Earth's twin planet, Mondas. There is also a possibility that the Silurians somehow became aware of the forthcoming crash of a space liner from the future (6B).
Near the beginning of the Pliocene era (40 million years ago), the Fendahl Skull landed on Earth and began to influence man's evolution (4X). During the Paleolithic era, circa 100,000 BC, the First Doctor and his Companions, Susan, Ian Chesterton and Barbara Wright, helped a tribe of Neanderthal cavemen rediscover the secret of fire (A). Around the same time, the alien being known as "Light" visited the Earth, intending to catalog its evolution (7Q).
Between 50,000 and 30,000 BC, the Neanderthals became extinct and were replaced by early modern humans, thanks to the intervention of the awesome aliens known as the Daemons (JJJ). Also, two alien, vegetable Krynoid pods landed in the Antarctic and buried themselves into the permafrost (4L).
During the later part of the Paleolithic era (20,000 to 8000 BC), Earth was visited by the Mondasians, from Earth's twin planet, who left behind legends of Space Gods and Giants Who Walked The Earth (DD); and by a Martian ship whose crew became buried in a glacier (OO). During the Neolithic era (between 6000 and 3000 BC), the powerful alien Osirians visited Ancient Egypt, creating a new pantheon of gods in their image (4G). Another of the so-called Egyptian "gods" was, in reality, a splinter of Scaroth of the Jagaroth (5H).
Circa 3000 BC, the alien villainess Cessair of Diplos, fleeing the Megara justice machines, landed on Earth and impersonated a Druidic goddess, the Cailleach. (5C). Soon afterwards, the alien Urbankans visited Earth for the first time, kidnapping an Australian Aborigene named Kurkutji (5W). During the late Neolithic era (1800-1400 BC), the Meddling Monk helped build Stonehenge (S).
ANTI-MATTER The supernova created by Omega collapsed and turned into a black hole, trapping the great
Solar engineer in a universe of anti-matter. When Omega tried to escape, he found that anti-matter had totally
destroyed his physical being and only his mind was left. He was presumed dead in a matter/anti-matter explosion
caused when his anti-matter being came in contact with the Second Doctor's positive matter recorder (RRR).
Omega survived and returned from the anti-matter universe by using the Arc of Infinity, a region of space filled with Quad magnetism, the only thing capable of shielding anti-matter from positive matter. He tried to bond physically with the Fifth Doctor to remain in our universe. The Doctor then used a matter converter to destroy him before a huge anti-matter explosion could destroy Amsterdam (6E).
A gateway into a universe of anti-matter existed on Zeta Minor. When Prof. Sorenson of the Morestran Empire tried removing anti-matter from the planet, monstrous creatures attacked the Morestrans. Sorenson himself was turned into a neanderthal-like monster, until the anti-matter was returned to its universe by the Fourth Doctor (4H). Capt. Briggs' space freighter used anti-matter fuel (6B).
ANTIQUITY Period of Earth History frequently visited by the First Doctor: Ancient Egypt circa 2600 BC (V), the Trojan War (1300 BC) (U), and Rome in 64 AD (M).

ARCTURUS Multi-strand organism from the Arcturian star-system. In order to survive in Earth-like environments, Arcturians needed to be placed inside a globe of their native lifefluids, mounted on a traction unit. The Arcturians and the Martian Ice Warriors were deadly enemies. An Arcturian was one of the Federation's delegates to Peladon. He was secretly in league with Hepesh to prevent Peladon from joining the Federation. He fought the Third Doctor and was killed by Ssorg (MMM).
ARDEN Archeologist during the Ice Age of 3000 AD. He found the body of Varga and was eventually killed by the Ice Warriors (OO).

ARGOLINS Inhabitants of Argolis. After their 20-minute war with the Foamasi, the Argolins became sterile. The radiation also slowed down their metabolic rate, making them appear ageless for a long period of time, until they suddenly began aging and died in a matter of hours. Thanks to the efforts of the Fourth Doctor, the Argolin leader, Mena, and her lover, the Earthman Hardin, the Argolins were able to use the Tachyon Recreation Generator to rejuvenate their race (5N).
ARGOLIS First of the Leisure planets. Argolis became radioactive after the Argolins' 20-minute war with the Foamasi. The surviving Argolins then built the Leisure Hive, and abandoned their war-like culture to promote peace and understanding between alien races. Thanks to the Fourth Doctor's intervention, Argolis' leader, Mena, was able to prevent the West Lodge Foamasi from taking over their planet (5N).
ARGONITE Precious mineral which combined the incorruptibilitry of gold and the strength of titanium, found only in deep space. Argonite mines were discovered and exploited by Dom Issigri and Milo Clancey. It became the object of a battle between the International Space Corps and space pirate Caven (YY).
ARIDIANS The inhabitants of Aridius were once an advanced amphibian race living in undersea cities. As their world became ever drier, they faced increasing hardships, forced to recycle all their water, and living under constant attack by the Mire Beasts. The Daleks blackmailed the Aridians into handing the First Doctor over to them (R).
ARIDIUS An ancient world once covered by vast oceans. After a dramatic change in orbit which caused the planet to move closer to its twin suns, the oceans slowly evaporated, leaving a desert planet, still inhabited by the Aridians and the Mire Beasts. It was the first stop in the Daleks' pursuit of the First Doctor through time and space (R).
ARIEL Chlorisian astrological sign (5G).
ARIS Young Kinda who was possessed by the Mara and was the first of his kind to speak (in Kinda terminology: the gift of Voice).

He was freed of the Mara thanks to the Fifth Doctor's intervention (5Y).
ARISING (TIME OF) Time when the Great Vampire was supposed to rise, after having been fed the blood and spirits of countless sacrifices by Aukon, Zargo and Camilla for a thousand years (5P).
ARK, THE Giant spaceship built by Man in the 57th segment of Time (about 10 million years in the future) to save Earth's population before the planet plunged into the Sun. It carried not only humans, but also the alien Monoids, as well as various samples of animal life. The bulk of the population had been miniaturised on micro-cell slides. The Ark was visited twice by the First Doctor during its 700-year long journey to Refusis: first, at the journey's onset, when Dodo's cold virus wreaked havoc on its population; then again, at the journey's end, when the Doctor helped save Mankind from the Monoids (X).

one of the most stupendous of all times. According to ancient Egyptian records later rewritten by Plato,
this was the site of a flourishing civilization, known as Atlantis, which perished in the cataclysm. The
eruption was triggered when the Master released -- in spite of the Third Doctor's intervention -- the time-devouring
entity known as Kronos, which the Atlanteans had trapped in a crystal (OOO).
The inhabitants of a lonely Atlantean outpost located south of the Azores in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean were cut off from their civilization and forced to eke out a miserable underground existence for nearly thirty-five centuries.
