The wizard knew spells, knew how to defeat evil with a wave of his magic wand. He didn't know how to stay in one place, though, didn't know how to live in the worlds he was saving. He still loved them, though, the worlds, the people. Everything.
There was a great War. People all over the universe fought each other, hurt each other. The wizard tried to help, but he made many mistakes that hurt a lot of people. A lot of people. He became a monster, a nightmare. He didn't even want to be around himself. When the War was over, the wizard was alone.
Then, one day, the wizard was fighting evil plastic monsters in a great shopping castle and he met a beautiful peasant girl. She was smart and brave and saved the wizard from making more mistakes that might've hurt even more people.

She had her family, but wanted to travel with the wizard, he had his travels but wanted to be with the peasant girl. They could never meet each other ever again, and that broke the wizard's hearts, as he cared so much for the peasant girl.
Is that all?
Pretty much, yeah.
That doesn't have a very happy ending, Doctor.
