DOCTOR WHO VILLAINS
VILLAIN NUMBER TWO
Story: The Enemy Of The World
Doctor faced: The Second
Companions faced: Victoria Waterfield, Jamie McCrimmon
Played by Patrick Troughton
A Mexican Patrick Troughton. I mean, how could I resist? how could anyone resist?
In the Twenty-first century, a man known as Salamander had not only been causing natural disasters, but he had also been slowly trying to gain dominance over the planet. Completely loved by the public, Salamander attempted to take over the world by having such a positive influence on the people, both the public and presumably the politicians. But he hadn't been doing this alone. And so to aid in the destruction of the planet through various natural disasters, he took a few dozen people, convinced that the world had been savagely ravaged (He, he) by a nuclear war and he placed them underground, forever sealed off from the outside world above. Completely oblivious to the fact that they are aiding Salamander in the murder and destruction of their own people, these underground dwellers, carry out research and operate pieces of machinery at his command as they create the disasters plaguing Earth.
|No, NO! NO AXOLOTL, NO! |
AWAY WITH YOU, SEA DEMON!
Salamander always has with him a somewhat creepy grin and looks constantly untrustworthy and so
it was probably his idea that all those who work for him wear tight, leather outfits.
He does try to gain access to the TARDIS by posing as the Doctor at the end of the Story but due to his natural inability to fake a convincing British accent (just as Troughton failed to fake a convincing Mexican accent) he was discovered and thrown out into the Time Vortex whilst the TARDIS was in flight. But who knew that in 1968, the Time Votex looked like a light shower of large sparkly, silvery sequins in front of pitch blackness?
Shopkeeper Of The World
Here, Salamander describes himself as the Shopkeeper Of The World.
Not a job that I would usually like to be associated with but Salamander is a bit insane.
Leave him to his ways.
Leave him to his poor life choices.
