X Files | Personnel
John Doggett

John Doggett John Doggett - ex-policeman and sceptic.

John Doggett came to the X Files from a high-flying FBI career. Before joining the Bureau he worked in the New York City Police Department, and has risen quickly through the ranks. He's supposed to be running the FBI task force looking for Mulder, but soon becomes involved in the day-to-day operation of the X Files.

Like Scully, Doggett is a doctor, though his PhD is in public administration. He used to be a marine, and served in the Lebanon. Whereas Mulder's quest was for his sister, Doggett is searching for an explanation for the disappearance of his son Luke, who went missing age 8.

He makes an unusual partner for Scully - rigid and cautious, he makes Scully seem like a wild conspiracy theorist. He's motivated by a deep respect for Scully, a suspicion of Mulder, and a dogged determination to solve problems, however unusual.
