The British Empire Edit
Jacobite Uprising Edit
The Jacobite Rising against the rule of King George II, led by Bonnie Prince Charlie, took place in Scotland in 1745. (TV: The Highlanders) The Glaswegians supported the English in the conflict. (TV: The Wheel of Ice)
The Rising ended in defeat for the Jacobites with the Battle of Culloden on 16 April 1746. In the aftermath of the battle, the Second Doctor, Jamie McCrimmon, Ben Jackson and Polly Wright closed down a slave trading operation run by Solicitor Grey. Jamie joined the Doctor on his travels. (TV: The Highlanders) After travelling with the Doctor for several years, Jamie was returned by the Time Lords to Scotland at a moment shortly before he first boarded the TARDIS. His memories of his travels with the Second Doctor were erased. (TV: The War Games)
In an alternative timeline accidentally created by Jamie in November 1688, the Glorious Revolution was a failure and King James II remained on the throne until his death. Consequently, the Battle of Culloden never took place. In 1788, the version of Jamie native to this timeline told a Time Lord agent of the CIA that no battle had ever been fought at Culloden. (AUDIO: The Glorious Revolution)
