Roz Forrester


Roslyn Sarah Forrester (usually known as Roslyn Inyathi Forrester), also known as Roz, was an Adjudicator-turned-companion of the Seventh Doctor.


Early life

Roslyn Sarah Forrester was born in 2935 (PROSE: Original Sin) to Baroness Io and her husband and had a sister, Leabie. (PROSE: The Also People) She belonged to an aristocratic family of thoroughbred Xhosa ancestry (PROSE: Original Sin) and sometimes used her clan name, Inyathi, as a middle name instead of "Sarah". Her grandmother told her that the clan name, which meant buffalo, meant that they should not eat the animal. (PROSE: The Also People)

Life as an adjudicator

Roz was a rebellious child and ran away from her parents' palace on Io several times before leaving for good, (PROSE: Dependence Day) joining the Guild of Adjudicators. She was trained by Konstantine and investigated her first murder case whilst working with him. (PROSE: The Also People) She squired for him for some time. (PROSE: GodEngine) As part of her training, she experienced a heroin high by electroencephalic stimulation. (PROSE: Sky Pirates!)

Konstantine made Roz spend three months observing Rhan-Te-Goth as punishment for a minor dress code violation. She found that Goth had been using hypnosis to distract his audience whilst his telepathic assistants scanned their minds for credit-chip information and arrested him, also finding that he had been accessing banned literature by Ludwig Prinn, Friedrich Wilhelm von Junzt and H. P. Lovecraft. (PROSE: The Death of Art)

She was squired to Fenn Martle for fifteen years, during which she was also his lover. (PROSE: Original Sin) Her father sent bodyguards to protect her early on in her career, but she repeatedly arrested them for loitering until he stopped. (PROSE: The Also People) She and Martle investigated the use of a hypnoleptic drug derived from an extract of the human pituitary gland amongst the Fnarok population of the Overcity (PROSE: Oblivion) and she later learnt that he had been taking bribes. She tried to arrest him and was forced to kill him with a vibroknife, but Tobias Vaughn changed her memories so that she believed a Falardi killed him. (PROSE: The Also People)

Roz and Chris Cwej meeting the Seventh Doctor. (PROSE: Original Sin)

Roz graduated as an Adjudicator on Ponten IV in 2955 (PROSE: GodEngine) and was partnered with Chris Cwej. It was whilst investigating a murder case in the Undercity in 2975 that they encountered the Seventh Doctor and Bernice Summerfield and helped them defeat Tobias Vaughn. (PROSE: Original Sin)

Travelling with the Doctor

Roz and Chris' first adventure with the Seventh Doctor and Bernice Summerfield brought them outside reality to the System. (PROSE: Sky Pirates!)

While tracking down Karne on the planet Megarra, Roz stumbled something called "the Project". It was so secretive that the people who informed her of it were killed instantly. As she needed to track down Karne, Roz swore that one day she would return to learn the truth. (PROSE: Mean Streets)

While in 1940s Britain during World War II, Roz had a romantic relationship with a lieutenant in the British Army named George Reed. He proposed to her, but she decided not to stay with him. She kept the engagement ring. (PROSE: Just War)

After Bernice

Information from GodEngine to The Death of Art, as well as The Seventh Doctor: The New Adventures: Volume One needs to be added.

When the Carnival Queen began manifesting in reality, the Doctor gave Roz an amaranth to counter the Queen's unreality. Separated by gynoids in 2012 Arizona, Roz fell through time to the town of Woodwicke in 1799 New York. Roz was stranded here for some time, making a living fortune telling, until she decided to assassinate local business owner Samuel Lincoln to get the Doctor's attention by preventing the birth of Abraham Lincoln. The Doctor found her before she killed Lincoln and was disappointed, telling Roz that Samuel wasn't even Abraham Lincoln's ancestor. (PROSE: Christmas on a Rational Planet)

Roz and Chris Cwej bicker in the Doctor's TARDIS. (PROSE: Original Sin)

When the TARDIS was arrested on Thrantas, Roz and Chris partnered with two local police officers to collect evidence in the case against the TARDIS. (AUDIO: The Trial of a Time Machine)

The trio took a break by living in 1996 Australia for a couple months, during which Chris and Roz grew closer. (PROSE: Return of the Living Dad)

Chris devised a way to get her in there and she rescued Adric by accident. She started the ignition system for the Machine. (PROSE: Cold Fusion)

Roz and Chris joined the Doctor and Bernice after seeing the corruption and manipulation rife on Earth in their time. She thought something was wrong with Gabriel Tyler when she saw him as black whilst his mother Winnie Tyler was white. She knocked out Mr Thomas when he arrived at the Tylers' flat. She worked out that Gabriel and Steven Jericho's psychic distress had called the N-Form. She was asked to stop Eva Jericho was removing Steven from the hospital, but was knocked out and arrived on time to see Steve die in the hands of Gabriel. (PROSE: Damaged Goods)

Roz died on 28 August 2982, during Leabie's revolution against the Emperor Abu ibn Walid, while leading an assault on a missile station outside the domed city of Valhalla on Callisto. She was buried in the Umtata Reclamation Zone on 1 September, a bright and sunny day. (PROSE: So Vile a Sin)

Other realities

This section's awfully stubby.

Information from Oblivion and So Vile a Sin needs to be added.

Psychological profile


Roz armed with her gun. (AUDIO: Cold Fusion)

Roz was a strong believer in justice. In order to arrest someone who she couldn't prove had committed a crime, she swallowed his identification tag, so she could arrest him for not having the proper identification. (PROSE: Original Sin) Between herself and Chris, she believed that she held the brains, and often took charge in tasks they had been given by the Doctor. (PROSE: Shakedown)

Roz distrusted telepaths. She was very protective of her privacy. (PROSE: SLEEPY)

She did not trust the Fifth Doctor when she met him, as she felt the fact that he seemed so trustworthy was suspicious. (PROSE: Cold Fusion)


Roz could speak some Swahili and Xhosa. (PROSE: The Also People)
