Definition of the noun adipose

What does adipose mean as a name of something?

noun - plural: adiposes

  1. animal fat stored in the tissue of the body


The Adipose were seen in the episode Partners in Crime. In the story, their breeding world was lost, causing them to turn to the alien Miss Foster to create a new generation. She formulated a drug that would cause human fat to parthenogenetically morph into Adipose children. This process is completely harmless to the host beyond the loss of body fat. In an emergency situation the process can be accelerated by using the host's bone, hair and muscle tissue as well as fat, but this makes the Adipose ill and weak, and kills the host by completely using up their body.[1] The official Doctor Who website's Monster Files feature states that the baby Adipose were taken into care by the Shadow Proclamation.[2] Five Adipose action figures planned for release as part of the first series 4 wave along with a Partners in Crime-suited Doctor with glasses. In the parallel universe created in the episode Turn Left, the Adipose incident happened in America instead of the United Kingdom, as London was destroyed when the Titanic crashed into Buckingham Palace because of the absence of the Doctor. Over 60 million Americans were killed in this timeline as a result. It is revealed in The Stolen Earth/Journey's End that Adipose 3, their home world, was one of the 27 planets snatched into the Medusa Cascade by the New Dalek Empire. After their defeat, Adipose 3 and the other planets were returned to their rightful places.
