Apparently dying in a New New York hospital, when the Face of Boe had watched the universe grow old, he told the Tenth Doctor that he would reveal his greatest secret to "one like himself", before he teleported himself away.One of the oldest creatures in the universe, the Ninth Doctor first encountered the Face of Boe, apparently, a giant human head in a jar on first inspection, at an event in the year 5 billion, watching the expansion of the Sun destroy the Earth. He survived sabotage of the event by Lady Cassandra, thanks to the Doctor.

In the year 5,000,000,053, the Face of Boe sacrificed himself to save New New York City, and with his dying breath, told the Doctor - “You are not alone”.

Speculation that Captain Jack Harkness might be the Face of Boe occurred after he revealed that he was the only person from the Boeshane Peninsula, to become a Time Agent, earning him the nickname of ‘The Face of Boe’.
