I'm coming to find you, and I will never, ever stop." ("Heaven Sent")

Notes Edit

  1. We don't know his actual first words, and they were probably in Gallifeyan anyway. But we know his first words on TV. His first known words are "I said don't touch that, child!" ("The Exiles" (short story)) If the theory that the unspecified incarnation of the Doctor in "The Infinity Doctors" (BBC Past Doctor Adventures novel #17) is a young First Doctor is correct, then his first known words are "No, no, no, you didn't disturb me. I was finding it difficult to sleep. I was just reading. The Illiad. Have you ever read it?". In any case, the earliest words heard on TV are 'Yes, what is it, what do you want?' ("The Name of the Doctor").
  2. His first actual words are "I… Oh." But this is his first understandable sentence.
  3. We don't know his first words, but those are his first words on TV. Additionally, "What I Did on My Christmas Holidays by Sally Sparrow" (short story) was set before "Rose", and his first words in that were "Hello, Sally Sparrow! Any questions?". Finally, this page gives him some possible first words: "They're all gone, I'm the only one left."
  4. Again, we don't know his real first words, but these are the first ones heard on-screen
  5. Another Doctor whose real first words are unknown
  6. As this Doctor was killed immediately after saying this, these double as his last words
