History

A streetwise teenager with serious issues, Ace was picked up by The Doctor on Iceworld after being deposited there by a freak time storm. It later turned out that she was actually a pawn of an evil intelligence from the dawn of time, but she didn't let it get her down. She travelled with the Doctor for several years (sometimes in the company of archeologist Bernice Summerfield), and also later spent some time as a spacefaring mercenary according to some accounts.

There are contradictory accounts of Ace's eventual fate. According to one, she was killed in an explosion while destroying the alien Lobri (Doctor Who Magazine comic strip Ground Zero).

Powers and abilities

Strength level

Human female who gets regular exercise.

Weaknesses

Inclined to use totally unbelievable slang terms.

Paraphernalia

Transportation

The TARDIS.

Weapons

Nitro Nine, an explosive compound of her own design which she stores in old deodorant cans. Also occasionally uses a supercharged baseball bat.

Notes

  • Ace's death in the Doctor Who Magazine comic strip was crafted to deliberately divorce the comic strip's continuity from that of the New Adventures novel range, which until then it had run in tandem with for some time. The canonicity of this story is highly dubious.
  • Ace was played on TV (and in various audio adventures and video spin-offs) by Sophie Aldred.

Trivia

Ace was named after Dorothy Gale, heroine of The Wizard of Oz.
