Osgood, U.N.I.T. Scientist and in-show Whovian
Osgood is a semi-regular character on the show who works as a scientist for U.N.I.T.—I’ll get to them later, but let’s just say they’re the Men in Black of the Whoniverse.
Her first episode was The Day of the Doctor where she helped in thwarting a Zygon invasion. Also the day that a Zygon took her form. From that point forward, there were two Osgoods, each refusing to admit who was the human and who was the Zygon.
Until one of them was killed, by Missy, a.k.a. the Master. And we still don’t know if it was the human or the Zygon. There have been some developments in this area, but since I stated I wouldn’t spoil anything from the latest season, I’ll have to keep my mouth shut on that.
What’s interesting about Osgood is she kind of represents a lot of us sitting at home watching the show. She’s a fan of the Doctor.
On her first meeting with the Doctor she was falling over herself and could hardly speak. She knows everything a human could know about the Doctor and usually finds herself desperate to help in some way, even though she’s not the action type.
She’s so much of a fan that she’s always seen with a little Doctor flair, whether it’s a colorful scarf, a particular cardigan, a pair of sneakers, a shirt with question marks on the collar, or a bow tie—bow ties are cool.
Can you pick out which Doctors are referenced by Osgood’s fashion choices?
