“Doctor …’ Jo’s voice dropped to a conspiratorial whisper. ‘My sister, my older sister, did her medical training at the Bi-Al Foundation, a Centre for Alien Biomorphology in the asteroid belt. She was seconded to a Professor Marius. She told me loads of really crazy stories over the years, but one of those stories concerned a man called the Doctor, a space traveller who helped bring a virulent viral infection under control.”
Mike Tucker, Doctor Who: Diamond Dogs

“It surprises me that the planet has survived so long. Do you know that they actively encourage their young to make war a game? Their culture is riddled with it. Toy pistols, toy rifles, toy grenades, war comics, action figures that hold knives and swords. Even when they avoid war, the young of this planet are exposed to horror comics, monsters under the bed, bogeymen, vampires and werewolves. Their nursery stories are full of demons and goblins and witches and kidnapped children.”
Mike Tucker, Doctor Who: The Nightmare Of Black Island
