On 10 October 1962, the British Intelligence operative Edward Grainger travelled to Checkpoint Charlie in West Berlin to meet an agent who was preparing to cross the Berlin Wall from East Germany. (PROSE: Checkpoint)
The Cuban Missile Crisis took place in October of 1962. (PROSE: Heart of TARDIS) Fear of impending nuclear war kept Barbara Wright awake at night during the crisis. (AUDIO: 1963) Coal Hill School gave special air raid warning lessons to deal with the emergency. (PROSE: Time and Relative)
That same day, The Fifth, Sixth and Seventh Doctors piloted the TARDIS back to Bob Dovie's house at 59A Barnsfield Crescent in Totton, Hampshire (crashing it into his chimney) to stop the Conceptual bomb that The Master will place the next year from going off. (TV: The Light at the End)
Around this time, a Dalek soldier, a survivor of the Last Great Time War, fell through time and crashed like a meteorite "on the Ascension Islands". The Dalek lay in its burning crater for three days, screaming the entire time, before it was retrieved. Its weapon systems inactive and its outer armour heavily damaged, the Dalek was sold at private auction and passed through several hands over the next fifty years. (TV: Dalek)
