The evolution of Dr. Who. What determines his phenotype over time? Does the breeder's equation apply? If so, what is the G-matrix – and is it constant? Or is all this variation due to phenotypic plasticity? Could it be some sort of aposematic display, perhaps? The fourth Doctor's scarf certainly seems like an example of niche construction. As always, further research is needed.
