The 12th Doctor is incredibly intelligent, he has a quip for any situation, and some boss tech.

His primary strengths seem to be in his core cards. Half of his plans are +300, which means that he will be able to foil almost any plans the Daleks are able to come up with. Add to that his high value Techs and he may well have access to those same plans again for his gambit, or easily be able to bury his other plans to keep the Daleks from foiling those.

His lower valued plans are great for baiting the enemy into foiling them with one of their higher absolute value plans, only so you can return the favor with your more numerous high valued plans.

His quips aren't quite as fancy as his plans or tech, but with the amount of them he has, he will usually be able to take advantage of abilities that trigger off them. Just be aware of cards that counter them.

Refocus is a great card for getting the Doctor where you need him to try and trigger the end-game when it's most advantageous to you.

And Regroup is arguably his most powerful card. Watch for a careless Dalek player to lead off his enemy stack with a –400 Threat, and then drop a Refocus and watch him squirm.
