C is for... Cloister Wraiths
Ghostly Time Lord figures which haunt the ancient Cloisters deep beneath the Capitol on Gallifrey. From the way they moved, they were sometimes called Sliders. They were dead Time Lords who had been uploaded to the Matrix, and they guarded one of the access points to it. Anyone who tried to break in was captured by the Wraiths and "filed". This included Daleks, Cybermen and Weeping Angels. When the Doctor returned to Gallifrey after being trapped for centuries in a Confession Dial, it was reported that the Wraiths were becoming more active, and they began to sound all the Cloister Bells in warning. It was said that once a young student had found his way into the Cloisters - the only person to emerge unscathed. This was the young Doctor.
Played by: Jamie Reid-Quarrell, Nick Ash and Ross Mullan. Appearances: Hell Bent (2015).
