Dr. Spacetime is a galactic super-rare zombie card in Plants vs. Zombies Heroes and a member of the Sneaky class. He costs 2 to play and has 1/5. He does not have any traits, and his ability reduces the cost of all Conjured zombie cards by 1 and Conjures a random zombie card from the Galactic Gardens set every time he does damage to the plant hero. This ability stacks with each Dr. Spacetime on the field and persists until all Dr. Spacetimes are removed from the field. His closest plant counterpart is Captain Cucumber.
OriginsHe is based on The Doctor, the title character of the British science-fiction series Doctor Who.
The scarf hanging on the left (right from the player's view) wardrobe door may be a reference to the Fourth Doctor from the aforementioned series, who wears a scarf. He also wears a bow tie, a staple of the Second and Eleventh Doctors' respective outfits.

He insists it's more than a screwdriver. Much more.
While Dr. Spacetime may be weak in terms of strength, he has bulky health for a 2 zombie. What makes him shine, however, are his abilities. All Conjured cards will cost slightly less with Dr. Spacetime on the field, meaning that he is best played alongside other cards that Conjure cards such as Cosmic Imp to make them cheaper as well.
The main purpose of this card, however, is to get a card advantage by hitting your opponent with him, as he himself Conjures a card when he does damage to them. Smoke Bomb and Terrify can easily allow this. Laser Base Alpha and Ice Moon (primarily as Huge-Gigantacus for Ice Moon) can be used to give Dr. Spacetime the Strikethrough trait, meaning he will always Conjure a card when he attacks (unless your opponent blocks). With his good health, he should be able to Conjure many cards and make them cheaper than usual. With this, one of the best combinations are that you can play a Buried treasure on the first turn and fuse its ability with Dr Spacetime's on the second and get a legendary card that costs 2 less.
Super Brainz and Huge-Gigantacus can use Zombot Drone Engineer and Gadget Scientist alongside this to make him even more of a threat, as Dr. Spacetime is a science zombie. As Brain Freeze or Neptuna, you can give him the Frenzy trait and increase his strength to guarantee a hit on your opponent. And as Impfinity, you can pair him with Disco-Naut to give Dr. Spacetime the Bullseye trait so that your opponent cannot block Dr. Spacetime's attacks if they hit, or with Disco Dance Floor or Moon Base Z to give him the Overshoot trait so he can get a guaranteed hit on your opponent, even when fronted by a plant. While both cards are able to give Dr. Spacetime Overshoot by turn 3 (as Disco Dance Floor needs to be played on turn 2), each card has its pros and cons. Disco Dance Floor will permanently give Dr. Spacetime Overshoot, but Disco Dance Floor must be kept alive, and can only benefit the Dr. Spacetime played on it. Moon Base Z, on the other hand, does not need to be pre-played, retains its ability even if the Dr. Spacetime there is destroyed, and is only removable by environments. However, the last part means that Moon Base Z is weak to Fireweed and Sap-Fling, and lacks dancing synergy (although Headhunter is the only suitable synergy card with Disco Dance Floor).
Due to his high health stat that allows him to easily take a few hits before being destroyed, this zombie will be able to Conjure many cards for your opponent and make them cheaper than usual. Try to Bounce or destroy this zombie as soon as possible to prevent your opponent from Conjuring too many cards. If you cannot destroy him, try to play a defensive plant like Wall-Nut, Cactus, or Soul Patch to stall him and prevent him from hurting you. But do not let your guard down even if you succeed in blocking him, as Smoke Bomb and Deadly cards can circumvent your countermeasures.
You will also want to get rid of environments that can benefit this zombie as they allow him to Conjure cards more easily. These environments include Moon Base Z and Laser Base Alpha.
