He’s the man with the plan, a flying police box and a sonic screwdriver.
He has travelled many galaxies, battled daleks, cybermen and weeping angels and has been accompanied by a host of lovely ladies and gents on his travels.
But how many of us know the real Doctor Who?
That’s exactly what scientists at the University of Aberdeen have been trying to discover, and by using the very latest in cutting edge technology that the Doctor himself would be proud of, the average face of Doctor Who has been created.
Ladies and gentlemen, aliens and time travellers, meet the real Doctor Who...
Compiled from photographs of the 13 actors who have played the Time Lord over the past 50 years, David Robertson and Dr Robin Kramer from the University of Aberdeen’s Face Lab created the image to coincide with the Doctor’s latest reincarnation into Peter Capaldi, which is due to air on Christmas Day.
Mr Robertson said: "It’s interesting that the face we have developed is not dominated by the features of any one of the actors to have played The Doctor.
"Rather it represents a combination of the averaged features of each actor to have taken on the role."
Although The Thick of It star Peter Capaldi has only just stepped into the striped scarf, bow tie, converse shoes and long coat of Doctor Who, Mr Robertson adds that should creator Steven Moffat require a new face in the future, he could look to the image for inspiration.
He said: "Indeed, this face average could guide future casting directors in their search for the ideal actor to play the Time Lord!"
