Dr. Ford is a former random event. The exact date of the discontinuation is unknown.

Players Woodcutting or Mining would get hit in the head by a wood chunk or stone, respectively. Dr. Ford would appear and ask the player to identify a hand figure. If the player failed, the player is teleported to a distant place to rest (Varrock north church). If the player answered correctly, they would get fruit (only bananas in free-to-play) and due to a bug would still be teleported to a distant place, which enraged players who guessed it correctly.

Although there were allegedly several reports about players getting the middle finger, this was impossible since Dr. Ford's hand gestures were pre-determined to pick from 7 different options. It is possible that players missaw the 4th option (holding up the middle and ring fingers) as Dr. Ford's hand was blurred and moved around the screen.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • His appearance bore a striking resemblance to Dr. Harlow before the graphical update, the only difference being Dr. Ford is bald in the middle of his head while Dr. Harlow is not.
  • Before the Dr. Ford random was removed, he was originally planned to be reworked and have players be teleported to his hospital.
