Ruby Sunday is a fictional character in the British science fiction television series Doctor Who, created by Russell T Davies and portrayed by Millie Gibson. In the show's fourteenth series, starting with the Christmas special, Ruby serves as the companion to the Fifteenth Doctor (Ncuti Gatwa), an incarnation of the alien time traveller known as the Doctor. Ruby Sunday is introduced in the fourteenth series' Christmas Special, "The Church on Ruby Road". Ruby was born on Christmas Eve 2004. Her birth mother abandoned her on the outside of the titular Ruby Road church. She was then fostered and adopted by Carla Sunday. Nineteen years later, Ruby is trying to find information about her birth parents, to no avail. She is also experiencing unnatural bad luck, attracting the Fifteenth Doctor's interest. When her adoptive mother's new foster baby is kidnapped by human-eater goblins, Ruby boards their flying ship and formally meets the Doctor. After deducing that the goblins feed on coincidence and cause Ruby's bad luck, the Doctor and Ruby save the baby. However, the creatures go back in time to kidnap Ruby on her birth day and eat her. The Doctor follows them and saves Ruby. Back to 2023, Ruby understands the Doctor is a time traveller and follows him inside the TARDIS.

The Fifteenth Doctor is the current incarnation of the Doctor, the protagonist of the British science fiction television series Doctor Who. He is portrayed by Rwandan-Scottish actor Ncuti Gatwa, who is the first black actor, first African-born actor, first openly queer actor, and fourth Scottish actor to lead the series. His series companion is Ruby Sunday, played by Millie Gibson. Within the series' narrative, the Doctor is a millennia-old alien Time Lord from the planet Gallifrey, with somewhat unknown origins, who travels in time and space in their TARDIS, frequently with companions. Usually, at the end of each incarnation's life, the Doctor regenerates; as a result, their physical appearance and personality changes. However, the Fifteenth Doctor emerged unconventionally, via "bi-generation", in which he split from his predecessor, the Fourteenth Doctor's body, rather than replacing him, allowing both incarnations to co-exist. Gatwa had previously been announced as Jodie Whittaker's successor as the programme's lead, and many reports stated he would play the Fourteenth Doctor and that Whittaker's Thirteenth Doctor would regenerate into an incarnation portrayed by Gatwa. Upon Whittaker's final appearance as the character, she instead regenerated into a form seemingly similar to the Tenth Doctor. This character, portrayed by David Tennant, was confirmed to be the Fourteenth Doctor, with later clarification that Gatwa would portray the Fifteenth Doctor. His first episode as lead actor aired on 25 December 2023
The Fourteenth Doctor is an incarnation of the Doctor, the protagonist of the British science fiction television series Doctor Who. He is portrayed by Scottish actor David Tennant, who previously portrayed the Tenth Doctor and was last seen on the programme in that role in 2013. Within the series' narrative, the Doctor is a millennia-old alien who is thought to be a Time Lord from the planet Gallifrey, with somewhat unknown origins, who travels in time and space in the TARDIS, frequently with companions. Usually at the end of each incarnation's life, the Doctor regenerates; as a result, the physical appearance and aspects of the personality of the Doctor changes. Tennant's second incarnation is similar to the Tenth Doctor, compassionate and adventurous, but more openly sentimental, holding onto a sense of melancholy and nostalgia. Initially it had been announced that the Thirteenth Doctor, played by Jodie Whittaker, would be succeeded as the programme's lead by a Fourteenth Doctor portrayed by Ncuti Gatwa. Upon Whittaker's final appearance as the character, she instead regenerated into a form similar to that of the Tenth Doctor. This character was confirmed to be the Fourteenth Doctor, with later clarification that Gatwa would portray the Fifteenth Doctor. The Fourteenth Doctor appeared in three special episodes in 2023 commemorating Doctor Who's 60th anniversary, which were executive produced by Russell T Davies, who also returned to the series after having previously executive produced the show from 2005 to 2010.
The Thirteenth Doctor is an incarnation of the Doctor, the protagonist of the British science fiction television series Doctor Who. She is portrayed by English actress Jodie Whittaker, the first woman to portray the character, starring in three series as well as five specials. Whittaker's portrayal of the Thirteenth Doctor has been met with praise from critics. Within the series's narrative, the Doctor is a millennia-old, alien Time Lord from the planet Gallifrey, with somewhat unknown origins, who travels in time and space in their TARDIS, frequently with companions. At the end of life, the Doctor regenerates; as a result, the physical appearance and personality of the Doctor change. Whittaker's incarnation is a light-hearted adventurer with a passion for building things, placing a high value on friendships and striving for non-violent solutions. Preceded in regeneration by the Twelfth Doctor (Peter Capaldi), she is followed by the Fourteenth Doctor (David Tennant).
Goblins were a species of short, green-skinned humanoids with prominent noses and pointy ears. They had a place in human folklore, and the term was sometimes used in general terms to refer to a magical trickster, rather than to a specific trickster; in this figurative sense, the Doctor was sometimes compared to a "goblin". Goblins were fond of kidnapping and eating human children, especially babies. (TV: The Church on Ruby Road)
Meeps were diminutive, furry creatures with large ears, a short nose and almond-shaped eyes. By one account, they appeared spherical in shape, while in another they instead appeared more humanoid. Their dense fur concealed a pouch and their blood was green. (COMIC: Doctor Who and the Star Beast) They had white fur and pink feet and hands. They also had two hearts.

The Ravagers were a species that heralded from the Dark Times and worshipped the Eternal embodiment of Time. When the Division created the planet Time and the Temple of Atropos, they were able to control the flow of time through the Mouri, which led to the imprisonment of Time's embodiment as well. The Ravager siblings, Swarm and Azure, saw this as heresy, and sought to destroy Universe One as revenge against the Division, who had imprisoned them for their part in the Siege of Atropos and the attempted freeing of Time.
The Ravagers were one among several species that the Doctor warned of in a distress call.
Humanoid and crystalline in appearance, the Ravagers possessed a wide variety of skin tones and patterns. Whilst Azure was a gaunt shade of white, with speckles and ripples of blue, yellow and green running over the crown of her head, this was in stark contrast to her brother, Swarm. Unlike his sister, his skin tone was a dull grey in his original body, and a dark purple, with flecks of gold, in his new body. Crystal formations could manifest very differently as well. Azure's formations were internal, running across the linings of her face and within a crack running down the crown of her head, whereas Swarm's formations protruded outwardly, at first covering the entirety of his skull, but then later only around his eyes and the left side of his forehead upon changing his form.
Indeed, Ravagers could harvest the life force of others to initiate a regeneration into a new incarnation. During this state, their skull became encased in a layer of spikes and their skin took on a faint orange glow. This was achieved by Swarm during his escape from his containment chamber, who gained the energy required from his murder of En Sentac.
As explained by Tecteun, the Ravagers were a form "temporal poison". They had the ability to to disintegrate all spatial objects through touch.Ravagers could also manipulate the Time Force and spatial energy, teleport anywhere in spacetime within their universe, and use telepathy, both casually and to form a psychic link with an individual. These three abilities could even be combined in the building of a psycho-temporal bridge, which allowed the user and their companions to be transported to a target with whom the user shared a psychic link, even if thetardis.fandom target is outside of the user's own universe.

The Antizone was a bleak, scary place, full of strange, deadly creatures.
Home Planet: Unknown
Fact: Darkness dwellers
First Appearance: It Takes You Away
It landed here way back in the 9th century. After a long, deadly battle, The Dalek was defeated. It’s casing was destroyed; the creature inside was cut into three pieces so it could never reform. Two were successfully transported away and guarded by the order of the custodians. But one piece was left behind. It stayed in Sheffield, where it was found 12 centuries later and was accidentally woken up. You would think a squiddy thing like that couldn’t get far. But turns out it could hitch a ride on humans. It built it’s own casing from spare parts and bits of it’s original outer shell.
Morax were an ancient species, captured and imprisoned on earth for war crimes.
Fact: Look like tendrils of mud
Features: Can possess humans
First Appearance: The Witchfinders
In seventeenth century Lancashire, there were literal witch-hunts going on in the village of Bilehurst Cragg. One of the reasons for that was because the Morax were incarcerated inside nearby Pendle hill. Bilehurst means ‘sacred tree on a hill’. The tree in question was the lock that kept the Morax secure. When the tree was cut down the Morax started to ooze out and take over bodies – living or dead.
The Kerblam men were delivery robots in the future Home Planet: Kandoka
Fact: Can teleport anywhere
Features: Camera eyes
First Appearance: Kerblam!
The Postmen worked for a company called Kerblam – the biggest retailer in the galaxy. It picked, packed and delivered anything you could want. The warehouse robots were called teammates, who were supposed to support the organic members of the team…but people were going missing. The
Postmen were getting ready to deliver death throughout the galaxy. But the Doctor had a solution and it was soon signed sealed and delivered.
The Lupari, singular Lupar, were a humanoid race that resembled Earth dogs. They were warriors with a great sense of honour. They were species-bonded with humanity, meaning each human had a Lupar tasked to protect them. On Halloween 2021, seven billion Lupari ships approached Earth to protect it from the Flux
The Thirteenth Doctor and Yaz tried to track down Karvanista for information on the Division, though the Doctor would not tell Yaz the true reason. After much annoyance, Karvanista trapped the two hanging by a gravity bar over an ocean of acid, though they managed to escape.
As every Lupar was tasked to save a human from the Flux on Halloween, Karvanista left with his fleet to rescue his designated human, Dan Lewis. A wave of temporal energy caused his ship to arrive a few hours before the rest of the fleet. Karvanista broke into Dan's house and kidnapped him without any explanation. He placed him in an electrified holding cell on his ship and departed into space.
After Karvanista left in his ship with Dan, the Doctor and Yaz traced his ship to Dan's house. They escaped his booby traps, but the Doctor was still able to gather enough information using her sonic screwdriver to trace Karvanista's ship in space, as well as uncover seven billion other Lupari ships heading towards Earth.
Thinking this was an invasion, the Doctor materialised the TARDIS on Karvanista's ship to confront him. She deactivated the ship's power while Yaz freed Dan. The Doctor told him she was there to ask about the Division, but first she needed to know why the Lupari were invading Earth. After noticing a signal that still reached his ship, Karvanista frustratedly explained the Lupari were bonded to humans and they were arriving to rescue them from the Flux. Before the Doctor could inquire further, the ship's power restored as well as Karvanista's weapon, so he chased them. The Doctor, Yaz and Dan escaped into the TARDIS. After experiencing a vision of Swarm, the Doctor observed the Flux approaching from her TARDIS and told Karvanista to instruct the fleet to create a barrier around the Earth, protecting it. (TV: The Halloween Apocalypse)
Karvanista was gruff and found humans, especially Dan, to be annoying. He found it insulting to his species to be compared to a dog.
Daniel "Dan" Lewis is a fictional character in the British science fiction television series Doctor Who. He was created by series producer Chris Chibnall and is portrayed by John Bishop. He first appeared in "Chapter One: The Halloween Apocalypse", the opening episode of the show's thirteenth series.
In Liverpool on Halloween 2021, Dan was abducted by Karvanista, a part of an alien invasion force intending to relocate humanity to protect them from the mysterious, galaxy-destroying phenomenon known as the Flux. Dan was rescued by Yasmin Khan and the Doctor, but even the TARDIS was unable to escape the Flux, which apparently killed them all.
