27 July was notable for a number of highly varied events on Earth throughout its long history:

In 1794, Robespierre was shot in the jaw and arrested at a National Convention meeting in Paris. The First Doctor, tricking the jailer of Conciergerie Prison into thinking that "Lemaitre" was a traitor, got a hold of the keys to the dungeon and freed his grandaughter Susan. The Doctor, Susan, Barbara Wright and Ian Chesterton then left together in the TARDIS. (TV: "Prisoners of Conciergerie")

In 1890, the Dutch artist Vincent van Gogh shot himself. (TV: Vincent and the Doctor)

In 1928, the Fifth Doctor, Tegan Jovanka and Vislor Turlough met Edward Grainger near Mount Lishan in China. (PROSE: Falling from Xi'an)

In 2012, [1] the Olympic Games opened in London. Chloe Webber, under the influence of Isolus, drew the audience of the opening ceremony out of existence. Before she could draw the entire Earth as well, she was stopped by Rose Tyler, who threw the Isolus pod towards the Olympic torch. The Isolus left Chloe. The Tenth Doctor then lit the Olympic Flame, and celebrated their victory with Rose. (TV: Fear Her)
