The Silent Doctor obsesses over not speaking, for some unknown reason. Nobody knows why, popular theories suggest that it's either a personal preference, or that there is a bomb in his voice box, so should he speak, he will die and regenerate into his future incarnation, who he doesn't particularly like for his loud, booming voice.
He claims it was due to the Universal Courts sentencing him to eternal silence due to an unknown and unspeakable crime, possibly genocide, planetary destruction or having a really annoying voice.
The Silent Doctor tends to defeat his enemies using logic, rather than actually doing anything (mainly due to budgetary reasons). For example, he defeated The Master (who was going to kill the Doctor for killing his brother) by revealing that the Master doesn't have a brother. He also outwitted Ian Levine by distracting him with cake.
Friends and Allies Edit
The Silent Doctor wears an alternating shirt and a grey jacket, which is fairly baggy, making the him look rather Chaplinesque, in keeping with his silent nature and over-the-top facial expressions.
