Doctor Who: The 10 Best Alternative Universe Doctors
Stylistically, Martin's costume was almost identical to Pertwee's, though his would change once again when the play was restaged in 1984 with Michael Sagar in the role. Martin had previously appeared as a Time Lord in "The War Games" and was joined onstage by costar Wendy Padbury, who had played his second incarnation's companion Zoe and now appeared as his, Jenny. Martin would return to the role in 2008 when he reprised his Doctor, a gruff and tough but eloquent man, in an audio adaptation of Dicks' script.
Dr. Smith: In the early '00s Telos Publishing put out a run of classic Doctor novellas that were especially excellent. All but two featured established Doctors. Of the two remaining no one is quite certain about. Cabinet of Light featured what is believed to be one of the two alternative Ninth Doctors who appeared before Christopher Eccleston assumed the role in 2005. He wore a black coat with green collar, white shirt, a loose collar on the coat, exposing his neck and pronounced throat, and was also known to wear a hat and muffler. He was gangly, but not tall, and was the first Doctor since the First shown to smoke. He often goes under the alias of Dr. Smith.
In Cabinet of Light The Doctor is aided by a hardboiled time-sensitive detective who is hired to help keep the Tardis out of the hands of a Nazi cult. He was a convoluted man, cheerful, but full of the same sinister cunning of his Seventh incarnation.
Pete's World Doctor: This is admittedly my own speculation, but no one I have ever brought it up with has ever had an answer or even realized that there was a question to be asked on the subject. When The Doctor and Rose visited Pete's World they stopped the Cybermen and reunited Rose with her father, who was alive in this timeline whereas she didn't exist. Later, the Tenth Doctor dropped his Meta-Crisis clone and Rose off in the dimension to live as man and wife, essentially sealing them away from the universe we know.
What I've always wondered is... where is that universe's proper Doctor? There's no reason to assume that he and Gallifrey and the rest of the Whoniverse we know of aren't also somewhere in the heavens over Pete's World. Shouldn't there be an actual Doctor in that world as well, not just Meta-Crisis? It's my theory that the Hurt Doctor is in reality Pete's World's Doctor crossing over into the main universe, with Rose and Meta-Ten either following him or joining him to stop whatever calamity is imminent.
