(AUDIO: State of Emergency) Stephen Mulryne, who later became the British Minister of Defence, participated in the Normandy landings. (AUDIO: 1963: The Assassination Games)

In October, the Seventh Doctor and Ace arrived at Colditz Castle and were taken prisoner by the Nazis. Elizabeth Klein, a time traveller from the 1965 of an alternative timeline in which Nazi Germany won the Second World War, soon arrived in Colditz Castle using the Doctor's TARDIS. She intended to bring the Doctor back with her to her own time. (AUDIO: Colditz)

Alternative timeline

In October, in an alternative timeline, Ace was killed by Kurtz in Colditz Castle. The laser technology contained in her Walkman was used by Nazi scientists to refine uranium and create nuclear weapons. They subsequently bombed New York City and Moscow, forcing the surrender of the United States and the Soviet Union and winning the war for Germany. This timeline was negated by an alternative version of the Eighth Doctor who, while posing as a German scientist named Johann Schmidt, fabricated a "flight log" for the TARDIS and manipulated Elizabeth Klein into travelling back in time to Colditz in October 1944 on the pretext of retrieving the Seventh Doctor so that he could teach her to pilot the TARDIS. Her lover Major Jonas Faber saw through Schmidt's trickery but was too late as Klein had already decided to disobey his orders and make the trip into the past. Unfortunately for Klein, her arrival in Colditz alerted the Seventh Doctor to the impending alteration of history and he and Ace were able to prevent it. (AUDIO: Colditz, Klein's Story)
