1899 was the final year of the 19th century. The Sixth Doctor regarded 1899 as a time when London was extremely elegant, with "garden parties, Henley Regatta, society balls, and country-house weekends".(PROSE: Players)
On 17 May, the director of Torchwood Three was killed by a youth-sucking alien. Shortly afterwards, Queen Victoria came to conduct her annual assessment of Torchwood. She pursued the alien across Cardiff with Jack Harkness and eventually aged it to death by forcing it to suck the life-force of a group of elderly people. (AUDIO: The Victorian Age)
During the summer, the Sixth Doctor and Peri Brown came to South Africa just after the Boer War started. They met the young reporter Winston Churchill. As part of a temporal game played by the Players, an assassin was sent to kill Churchill so he wouldn't become a Prime Minister. The Doctor and Peri saved Churchill, but they were caught by the Boers and imprisoned in Pretoria. With the help of the Countes, the Doctor, Peri, and Churchill escaped. The Doctor and Peri left in the TARDIS while Churchill fled to Mozambique. (PROSE: Players)
On 26 December, the Fifth Doctor and Nyssa watched a Boxing Day mummers play in Stockbridge. The play recalled events in 1199 that the Doctor and Nyssa were soon to live through: overthrowing the Rutans who inhabited Stockbridge Castle. The actor who played the dragon recalled his ancestor's experiences, and went mad. (AUDIO: Castle of Fear)
