Doctor Who: The Newbies Guide
The Mark of the Rani
This is the third story in Season 22. Like all stories in this season, the episodes are 45 minutes long.
The sixth Doctor is brash, stubborn, and often condescending and arrogant. He wears a bright multi-coloured coat.
Perpugilliam "Peri" Brown is an American botany student from the 1980s who decided to join the Doctor on his travels during Planet of Fire. In The Caves of Androzani, the fifth Doctor sacrificed himself to save her life. She stayed with the newly regenerated Doctor in The Twin Dilemma despite post-regeneration trauma that led him to attempt to strangle her.
Recurring and Historical Characters
The Master is a Time Lord and an enemy and rival of the Doctor. In Terror of the Autons he arrived on Earth and allied with the Nestene Consciousness to attempt to conquer Earth. He was stopped by the Doctor and UNIT. He has since come into conflict with the Doctor on many occasions. In The Keeper of Traken he was reduced to a deathly husk, and then possessed the body of Tremas of Traken. In Logopolis he unleashed a wave of entropy that destroyed a large portion of the universe, including Traken. His actions were also responsible for one of the Doctor's regenerations.
