Gallifreyan’s have Triple Helix DNA as well as TNA. The extra third strand was added by Rassilon to make regeneration possible. Regeneration was created to extend the already amazing Gallifreyan lifespan. Their bodies are filled with self-replicating biogenic molecules (sometimes known as the Immortality Virus) that work ceaselessly to repair and prune damaged and malformed cells. Because of this, it takes hundreds of years for a Gallifreyan to show signs of aging. After healing, the regeneration proceeds and the subjects’ body (and to a lesser degree, the mind) will be completely restructured.
Within the first 15 hours of regeneration, a Gallifreyan will still have enough residual cellular energy to regrow a severed body part, such as a hand.
The biogenic molecules are aided by the temporal platelets which cluster around any wound, accelerating time in that area to speed the healing. A broken leg can heal in anywhere from a few hours to 4 days depending of the severity of the break. These rates of healing can be enhanced if the Gallifreyan is kept near (or inside) a TARDIS.
Despite looking like humans from Sol III, Gallifreyan’s have got multiple organs of virtually everything including two more ribs (than humans). They have 2 of most of the organs that humans have only one of, and four of the organs that humans have only two of. Aside from the extra ribs, a Gallifreyan’s skeleton is almost identical to that of a human being.
Gallifreyan’s have more than one stomach and are not as vulnerable to malnutrition as humans are. Some (if not all) believe that only one meal a day is perfectly normal. They can easily go two days without water and a week without food is not a major strain - in fact, they sometimes sit in thought for days without food or water. However, 40 days without food or water will make a Gallifreyan delirious.
Arsenic is toxic to Gallifreyan’s and will inhibit their enzymes. If a large source of protein, salt, and other chemicals (found in ginger beer) are available, a Gallifreyan who has been poisoned with arsenic can use a major shock or surprise to trigger detox. This detoxification allows their stomach to stimulate inhibited enzymes to reverse and release all toxins as gas that can be exhaled. Aspirin is incredibly toxic to them, as well.
Their skin smells like honey and has extra subdural and subcutaneous layer. This makes their skin very resistant to radiation, physical damage, poison ivy, sunburns and tanning. Gallifreyan’s can resist radiation that will kill a human in 4 minutes for 2-12 minutes before they start to take noticeable damage. Incarnations which appear to be physically younger are significantly more resistant to radiation then older bodies. They also have incredible strength for their size.
They can enter a self-induced sleep trance in which breathing, heart beat, and brain activity are all reduced to an absolute minimum. While in this trance a Time Lord can ponder complex ideas without any outside distractions. 20 minutes in this state is equivalent to 8 hours of sleep for a human. Thus, they only need about 1-6 hours of sleep every 2 days.
AHHHH you guys I am like… SODAMNCLOSE to finishing this manuscript. I’m there, I’m right there, and I just… LOVE MY CHARACTERS. Bros helping other bros who got depressed and he’s just I’m here for you my bro if that’s okay.
And I just want to cuddle them.
“You’re not alone anymore,” said Will. “If— if that’s acceptable to you. If you would want my help.”
Oscar pressed his lips together, then nodded. His voice broke when he softly said, “I would.”
“Then… may I ask for your help today?” He offered the ring box. “Stand up with me?”
He looked at the box, then at Will, and slowly a grin rucked up one corner of his mouth, the way he used to when they were lads, right before he would say something utterly cheeky. Will was not disappointed.
“Not even down on one knee, Bertie? What kind of proposal is that?”
“And ruin my trousers?” he countered, gesturing to his spotless red-on-navy pinstripes.
When the Doctor woke, he had a splitting headache, and he was laying supine on the sand.
All he’d been doing was strolling down the beach, thinking about Rose. Next thing he knew, his world went black.
He rubbed the side of his head and sat up, sand slipping down the back of his shirt. “Bloody sand.” He brushed himself off and made to stand. “I hate sand. It just gets everywhere.” He froze when he heard the unsheathing of a sword.
The next thing he knew, the sword was pointed at his throat. He looked down the long blade, and then up at its owner…Rose.
Official : Story About the Doctors Child hood bully Torvic.
Seventh Doctor: “And so the stranger spoke. He told him of two young boys growing up together in a land far, far away from Perfushion Their world was one of rules. A stuffy class ridden society and as Jackie and Shafer striven to escape their social chains so they strove to shatter their own.”
“They would run away from their classes, run free through fields and forest. Often as they tired of running they’d sit by the river and stare up at the stars. They would talk about how one day they would be truly free and how they would wander the stars and see the universe. (Sounds of two muttering children and laughter) They were united in their yearnings to escape and be free. They were however also united in their suffering at the hands of another. Another boy would torment and bully them. For he saw them as simply ants.”
“ One day the ants revolted. They have been playing on the banks of the River Lethe when Torvic, for that was the bully’s name appeared (Mean childish laughter) He wasn’t evil. He was just another naughty young child trying the break the rules. He found the two boys sat by the river. Then one he jumped and pulled one of them down to the water and grabbed his head and pushed it into the flowing stream. (Mean laughter continues now with sound of struggling and splashing) The child struggled vainly as the water went up his nose and down his throat. Torvic wasn’t going to drown him, he was merely doing what bullies do. Seeking control.”
Man: “But … but what about the other boy? what did he do?”
Seventh Doctor: “ This is where it all began. Usually when Torvic tormented one of them, the other would sit and wait.. Helpless, (Sound of crying) but this time something awoke in the other child. (angry screaming) Blind fury and anger, sick with anger. He charged at Torvic. Stopping only to pick up a large stone. ( A cracking sound and splash) Torvic never stood a chance. The murder pulled his friend from the water and they stood there is silence Watched as the blood flowed from Torvic’s shattered skull, Watched as the blood flowed into the stream. Watched unable to comprehend what one of them had done. The other boy , being of a sounder mind realized immediately what punishment they would face.”
Man: “But…but they had only been trying to protect themselves.”
Seventh Doctor “One of them had taken a life. They knew that if they were caught, they would never realize their hopes for freedom. They would never see the universe.”
Man: “What did they do?”
Seventh Doctor: “ They pulled Torvic’s body from the river. (splashing sound) They pulled him onto the dry land. They covered his body with branches from the trees and then together as one they set the funeral pyre a light ,and together holding hands they watched as his body burned. (sound of fire) They watched as Torvic’s skin bubbled and burned and became smoke. They watched as they send him back to nature.”
