Bow ties. Only certain people can really rock the look. Orville Reddenbacker. Alton Brown. Bill Nye. Matt Smith certainly did as well in his portrayal of the 11th iteration of The Doctor. Soon he’ll be headed to your tabletops in Time of the Daleks, and Gale Force Nine gives us a look at what you can expect with that.
From the article:
“The way I see it, every life is a pile of good things and bad things. Hey, the good things don’t always soften the bad things, but vice versa, the bad things don’t always spoil the good things and make them unimportant.”
The Eleventh Doctor may not be the only Doctor to wear a bow tie, but he is definitely the Doctor that made it iconic. Of course, there is more to this Time Lord than a cracking bow tie. His great quotes and amazing episodes prove from day one that the Eleventh Doctor is indeed a madman in a box.
The Eleventh Doctor has had some amazing companions during his regeneration: Amy Pond, the girl who waited; Rory Williams, the boy who waited even longer; River Song, his killer or his wife; and Clara Oswald, the impossible girl.
“The universe is big, it’s vast and complicated, and ridiculous. And sometimes, very rarely, impossible things just happen and we call them miracles. And that’s the theory. Nine hundred years, never seen one yet, but this would do me.”
The Eleventh Doctor starts the game with Amy Pond. Because Amy is linked to Rory, he can easily join the Eleventh Doctor’s TARDIS. The Eleventh Doctor, Amy and Rory create a dynamic team that can automatically get some tough symbols. Between them they get plenty of Blue and Green dice. They don’t have much access to Red dice, though, so grabbing a red-focused companion like River Song or the Brigadier would be very useful.
Like all of the Doctors, the Eleventh Doctor has a powerful unique ability. His makes equipment cards cheaper to play. This comes in very handy in the first part of the game when the Doctors are trying to gather the resources they need to complete adventures and stop the Daleks.
