Psychologists at the University of Aberdeen combined images of all the actors who have filled the role in the long-running BBC show.

The results were revealed before the current Doctor, Matt Smith is replaced by Peter Capaldi.

The team behind the "face averaging" technology said it was a "remarkable" result.

Researchers said the face could guide future casting directors.

The Doctor Who Christmas special will air on BBC One on 25 December at 19:30.
