Prometheus or Lucifer
Ooh, that's a good one. Indeed, it was the Doctor (or technically Ian) who showed cavemen how to make fire all the way back in the first serial, so he really is Prometheus, and a "lightbringer." (Not to mention that the folk etymology for "Prometheus" is that it means "foresight" or "forethinker" -- which could be taken to mean "one who sees the future." Though it's now believed to mean "thief," and the Doctor is certainly that.)
