Could be any Doctor, but most likely Eleven.
Summary: The Doctor is the protector of the universe.
He’s as dangerous as he is cool, and everyone knows it, that’s why most keep out of his way. Only a fool would cross him, but it’s a big universe and there are plenty of fools only too willing to try. It never ends well for any of them.
You’d think people would learn from the mistakes of others, yet they all seem to think they have the edge over those who came before, that they’re smarter, more powerful, better equipped.
They’re always wrong.
One by one, he takes them down.
This is the Doctor’s universe, and he’s its protector.
