The Tenth Doctor Showcase

This week we are taking a closer look at the Tenth Doctor.
Doctor Who Time of the Daleks
 

“Whatever you've got planned, forget it! I'm the Doctor. I'm 904 years old. I'm from the planet Gallifrey in the constellation of Kasterborous. I'm the Oncoming Storm, the Bringer of Darkness, and you... are basically just a rabbit, aren't you? Ok, carry on... just a... general... warning...”

One of my favorite moments with the Tenth Doctor was from the “Children in Need” special where he teamed up with the Fifth Doctor, bringing the new into the old in a way as a fan, I always wanted but never thought they would do.  

The Tenth Doctor, Rose, Mickey, Martha, Donna, Mott, and Captain Jack, these names bring back great memories. Even his monsters were iconic, from Weeping Angels, Clockwork Robots, to the return of Sontarans, the Tenth Doctor had it all.

 "There is an old earth saying Captain, filled with power and wisdom, and consolation to the soul in times of need… ALLON-Y!”

In the game the Tenth Doctor gains three Sonic Charge tokens instead of two at the start of each turn. He also has a more flexible added color die allowing him to either add a single red or green die. 

I know the question on your mind, “Why is the Tenth Doctor not linked to Rose?” 
It is simple, because Rose has to be linked to… (Spoilers!)

Martha ended up being a good match for the Tenth Doctor, giving him some real focus with the blue story dice. Not only does Martha give the Doctor access to up to three blue dice but she gives him some good re-roll opportunities.  



The Fifth Doctor Showcase

This week we are taking a closer look at the Fifth Doctor.
Doctor Who Time of the Daleks
 

“Oh, marvelous. You're going to kill me. What a finely tuned response to the situation..”

The Fifth Doctor was my favorite Doctor growing up. He was so young compared to the other doctors and he had so many companions, three to be exact to start off with. This is where we get the limit on companions you can have in the game, though the Doctor has had more then three at times he never ran with them for very long.  I loved Adric, Nyssa and Tegan and their contrast to each other and the Doctor.

 In the Game the Fifth Doctor gets access to three companions right away, as Adric, Nyssa, and Teagan are all linked to each other so in two turns you can have a full set of companions.  The Fifth Doctor also can help you re-roll two dice by discarding a Timey-Wimey card or Sonic Charge token.

"I tried keeping a diary once. Not chronological, of course, but the trouble with time travel is one never seems to find the time."

The two companions we are showing off today is Nyssa and Adric both Alien companions that can change rolled die symbols. Nyssa is a blue Dice specialist, allowing the Doctor to swap two black dice for two blue dice, re-roll any blue dice and change one blue die to science. Adric gives the Doctor access to swap for any colored dice he may need, though you will have to decide between red and green.  Adric also add a black story die and can change a black die to Cunning. On top of all that if Adric is with the Fifth doctor he gets you more Timey-Wimey cards.
