Peri Brown, full name Perpugilliam Brown, is an American college student (her passport lists her residence as Pasadena, California) majoring in botany. Peri was a companion of the Fifth and Sixth Doctors.

As they are both suffering from spectrox poisoning on Androzani, the Fifth Doctor decides to give what antidote remains to Peri, sacrificing himself to save her. As she looks on, he regenerates into the Sixth Doctor at the end of The Caves of Androzani and she continues to travel with him, despite the fact that one of the first things the temporarily unstable Sixth Doctor does is try to strangle her.
Peri is a bright, spirited young woman in her early twenties, who travels with the Doctor because, like many of his companions, she wants to see the universe. Although she shares a more abrasive relationship with the Sixth Doctor, there is an undercurrent of affection in their verbal sparring.
Peri travels with the Doctor for an undisclosed period of time; some sources say she travels with him for mere months, while others say years. Between the events of Revelation of the Daleks and the season-long story The Trial of a Time Lord, the character is shown to have matured somewhat and her relationship with the Doctor becomes less combative.
In the second segment of the Trial story arc, Mindwarp, Peri is abducted by an arthropod-like creature named Kiv, who apparently transplants his brain into her body. Soon after, the Doctor is led to believe that Peri is dead, and is severely distressed by this. It is later revealed at the end of The Ultimate Foe (the fourth segment of the arc) that the evidence of Peri's death was faked by the Valeyard. Peri has, in fact, survived, presumably recovered from Kiv's transplant (if it ever actually occurred), and married King Yrcanos of Thoros Alpha, a warrior king who had assisted the Doctor and Peri during the Mindwarp incident. It is not known what happens to Peri after she marries Yrcanos.

Next up, an 'alternate' Doctor in the form of Peter Cushing...
Accidentally thrown together, Dr. Who, his granddaughters, Susan and Barbara, and their friend Ian cross the universe in Who's new invention, the space and time machine known as "Tardis". When they land on the planet Skaro, the travellers meet the kind and placid Thals, who live in fear of the dreaded Daleks. Somehow, the Doctor and his party must find a way to help the Thals overcome the deadly mutants who live inside impenetrable metal casings.

Dr. Who and the Daleks (1965) was the first of two Doctor Who films made by Amicus Productions in the 1960s. It was followed by Daleks – Invasion Earth: 2150 A.D. The film features Peter Cushing as Dr. Who, Roberta Tovey as Susan, Jennie Linden as Barbara, and Roy Castle as Ian.
The film was not intended to form part of the ongoing storylines of the television series. Elements from the programme were used, however, such as various characters, the Daleks and a police box time machine, albeit in re-imagined forms.

Dortmun was a freedom fighter on Earth during the Daleks' invasion and occupation of Earth. He was disabled and for the most part, confined to a wheelchair. Dortmun developed a bomb he hoped would be effective against the Daleks, but it failed. He wanted to set about developing a new bomb, but was forced to go on the run when the Daleks began searching for the rebel hideout. He gave Barbara Wright his notes to give to the First Doctor. He attempted to use his new bomb on a Dalek patrol in London, but was killed in the attempt.
Professor Jeremiah P. Kettlewell was a human scientist and member of the Scientific Reform Society. Kettlewell specialised in robotics, and created a robot called "Experimental Prototype Robot K1". He was affiliated with Think Tank, but at some point he turned against conventional science and left Think Tank to work on a alternative energy facility. He allied himself with Hilda Winters in order to have K1 made more powerful. However, he later changed his mind and was killed by his creation.
Scaroth, also known as Count Carlos Scarlioni and Captain Tancredi, was the last of the Jagaroth and the saviour of his species. He was also the pilot of the Jagaroth ship that landed on Earth in prehistoric times.
