After reading about the heroic pattern I was watching the science fiction show Doctor Who while watching it I compared the Doctor to the heroes in the myths. The Doctor was a young adventurous Time Lord and stole a tardis that he later claimed for himself. He has the help of various humans and other life forms helping him with the various disasters that they find themselves in. There are temptations presented to The Doctor especially when he is in a disaster that has already happened and he wants to help people who have died in that event. He is unable to because it would affect the future, like what happened in the first series of the new series when Rose saves her dad creating a paradox. He is forced the action in relation to the laws of time and the universe as well as the rules created by The Time Lords. The Doctor has the ability to regenerate his body to prevent death in some cases which is somewhat like a katabasis.
