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)

During this year, Great Britain was defended from alien attacks numerous times by both Torchwood Three (TV: Fragments et al) and Jago and Litefoot. (AUDIO: The Justice of Jalxar)

Jack Harkness in 1899. (TV: Fragments)

Early in the year, Jack Harkness was recruited by Torchwood Three. (TV: Fragments)

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)

In early November, Noël Coward was born. (PROSE: Who Killed Kennedy)

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)

On 31 December, the Torchwood One agent Gerald Kneale assisted Torchwood Three with the Centurian Incident and its clean-up in Cardiff. (COMIC: Rift War! Part Six: Circles)

Three months after Currie's crime spree began, the Twelfth Doctor came to Wyoming after detecting Jata's ship. He befriended Molly Zook and learned of Currie and his horse. Zook took the Doctor to a nearby town which she knew Currie's gang were planning on robbing. The Doctor bought a white horse and painted a black star on its forehead so it resembled Jata. As Currie and his gang attacked a train carrying gold, the Doctor switched Jata for the horse. Without Jata's advice, Currie was captured by the sheriff and arrested. The Doctor then took Jata back to Osumare with his TARDIS. (COMIC: From the Horse's Mouth)
