In-depth character backgroundEdit

Neela left Kansas and became a hero who fought evil and injustice across the world in violation of the UN's non-interference policy. Technically, she explored only with the intention of experiencing the wonders of the world and having fun, but frequently became embroiled in machinations and crises that ended with her defeating the foe and saving the land she was visiting. She travelled with many companions. Neela once stated to a broken Nazi that it was her first encounter with a Nazis in Stalingrad which truly defined her character. Neela was a woman born into wealth and privilege who couldn't stand the plight of the weak and oppressed and so was eventually inspired to steal an aeroplane and fly amongst the stars, protecting those who couldn't protect themselves. However, Neela refused to see herself as a hero. She later declared that she wasn't a good woman, a bad woman, an officer, a hero or a President as she was described by the many who had come to know her over the years, but simply an idiot who travels around helping and learning. To most, she was simply known as the Doctor.


Explosive, exuberant, emotionally unpredictable and adventurous, the Neela was the final incarnation of Johnny's original regenerative mother. By this point in his life, the Neela's reputation had grown immense, attracting a new strain of conflicts. Wishing to withdraw from the dangers it created, she became a secretive and guileful individual for the sake of herself and those she held close.


The use of the name Neela when referring to Neela is commonplace in the Kansas media, and most prose and comic stories of the 1960s and 1970s. The ending credits for the series gave her name as "Rachel" or "Dr. Rachel", from 1963 until 1989 "the Doctor", which remained in place until the end of the original series in 1989.
