Arriving in the small Lancashire town called Lannet, the melancholic Ninth Doctor met a barmaid Alison Cheney. Together, they fought to save the world, and won against the silicon-based Shalka. Afterwards, Alison left with the Doctor in the TARDIS.
This Doctor was serious, and often angry, but wasn't averse to the odd bit of fun. He kept an android version of the Master in his TARDIS.
