What is the DO after doctors' names?
In the US it means Doctor of Osteopathic Medicine and is very similar to a Doctor of Medicine (M.D.) degree, although it is a slightly different training program with additional emphasis on wellness and preventive care of the human body and sometimes with use of some manipulation (like Chiropractors do) of spinal, bone and joint position. Their licenses allow them to do basically all the same functions of an MD, such as prescription of medications, surgery, and specialty training.

The abbreviation DO after a doctor's name stands for Doctor of Osteopathic Medicine.
The eleventh Doctor is Matt Smith.
Colin Baker played the Doctor in 1993; however, the Doctors name is literally always the Doctor.
Traditionally, a Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) were by definition the true "doctors", as the word doctor comes from the latin for teacher. Doctors of philosophy are usually scien…tists and instructors at universities. Besides these "true" doctors, our society has used the term doctor to refer to anyone who has completed a postgraduate doctorate degree in school. Thus, there are many different types of doctors, spanning many fields. Most often we associate the term doctor with certain health care professionals who have completed a doctorate level degree. Some examples of those are: Doctors of Medicine (MD) - use medications and surgery to treat almost anything Doctors of Dentistry (DDS) - treat problems involving teeth and gums Doctors of Veterinary Medicine (DVM) - treat animals using medicine or surgery Doctors of Optometry (OD) - deal with issues involving the eyes Doctors of Podiatry (DPM) - deal with issues involving the feet Doctors of Chiropractic (DC) - deal with issues involving the spine and neuromusculoskeletal system
To give an element of mystery to the series (and to start rumours)

The 1st Doctor who aired on November 23rd 1963 was William Hartnell. He regenerated in 1966 into Patrick Troughton, followed by Jon Pertwee, Tom Baker (the longest-running and… crowd favourite from the original run), Peter Davison, Colin Baker, Sylvester McCoy, then the movie in 1996 starred Paul McGann. The revival in 2005 starred Christopher Eccleston, who regenerated into David Tennant that same year. He regenerated in 2010, on New Year's Day, into Matt Smith who currently is the Eleventh Doctor.

Current Doctor Who Head Writer Steven Moffett claims to know the Doctor's unpronounceable true name. Speculation says he will reveal it during the 50th Anniversary of Doctor Who.
In the episode of the new series of Doctor Who, "The Doctor's daughter", the Doctor's Daughter was called Jenny. She was played by British Actress Georgia Moffett, the real …life daughter of Peter Davison, who played the fifth Doctor. She is now married to David Tennant, who played the tenth Doctor. They have just had a child!
The Doctor's name. His real name, the one on his Gallifreyan birth (or loom, if you're one of the people who follow that tangent) certificate. The greatest secret in the world…. Well, not really. You see, in Marvel Comics Presents #57, a US reprint of Doctor Who strips in 1980, the backmatter page by Mary Jo Duffy claims that his real name is ∂³∑x² -- this in turn taken from the "Making of Doctor Who", by Malcolm Hulke and Terrance Dicks from the mid seventies, taken in turn from a 'document' from his trial shown in the pages What is ∂³∑x² ? Doctor Who spin-off media, which are of uncertain canonicity, have suggested that the character uses the name "the Doctor" because his actual name is impossible for humans to pronounce. For instance in the novel Vanderdeken's Children, it's told that the Doctor already told Sam his real name which is entirely alien and virtually unpronounceable. This is also repeated by companion Peri Brown in the radio serial Slipback. (This would appear to be inconsistent with River Song whispering the Doctor's name in "Forest of the Dead".) The Faction Paradox encyclopedia The Book of the War states that all renegades from the Homeworld/Gallifrey abandon their names to symbolise how they leave their culture. Similarly, the novel Lungbarrow reveals that the Doctor's name has been struck from the records of his family and therefore cannot be spoken
The Doctor names his daughter "Jenny." Jenny was created by an extraction of the 10th Doctor's DNA, from tissue in his hand. Jenny has the ability to regenerate just as th…e Timelord race. This means she has The Doctor's abilities.
