The morgue doctor was the man to whom Jack identified his father's body. He informed Jack that Christian Shephard had died from a massive heart attack brought on by alcohol poisoning at King's Cross in Sydney. Jack decided to take his father back to the United States, though he had trouble getting the casket on the plane because he did not make proper arrangements through a funeral home. ("White Rabbit")
- He is played by Geoff Heise, the same actor that portrayed gas man in Pilot, Part 1. However, there is no confirmed connection between the two characters, and it is unlikely that any exists.
- Although being an unnamed character, the morgue doctor is in fact named, as his name is shown on his staff badge. However, his name is unidentifiable in the episode. Therefore, he is considered as an "unnamed character".
