    So, just from his toy bio and appearance...I've really grown fond of the ol' Doc.

    So anyone care to describe the way he plays out in the movie that's seen it?

    You want spoilers or no spoilers? :p 

    Spoiler-lite: He's a sadistic, high-pitched, German-accented little sucker who conducts his "medical operations" in a frenzied way. He only has a couple of scenes, but he's pretty memorable; I enjoyed him. :) 

    Spoiler-heavy:
    I believe that the Doctor, as he's called in the film, is one of a number of subsidiary Transformers that's formed from tiny nanobots produced by Ravage. He takes charge of the resurrection of Megatron, journeying down to the sea bed with Ravage and a few Constructicons, and orders one of them to be ripped apart by the others in order to supply the parts he needs for repairs.

    His other main scene is when Megatron, Starscream and Grindor trap Sam and take him to an abandoned facility to extract information from him. Megs pins Sam and the Doc climbs on top of him, pokes and slaps him about and then brings out a nasty little tentacled wriggling probe that enters Sam's mouth, roots in his skull and out of his nostrils before emerging with data from the Allspark and many of Sam's memories recorded for all to see. The Doc's work is done!

    I believe that's all you really see of him; if he comes back at all after that, I didn't notice. Like I said, brief screentime, but a fairly important and memorable little bot nevertheless.

    Maybe its some kind of contagious disease that only appears to affect transformers and unfortunately not some of the humans - it already spread to Mudflap, Skids and Wheelie!
