The 2nd century was not a time the Doctor, his companions or even his enemies frequently visited. Undoubtedly the most significant event of the century took place in right at the beginning. In 102, the Alliance tried to put the Eleventh Doctor in the Pandorica, but he escaped. Instead, Amy Pond began a more-than-20-century residence in the box, with an Auton duplicate of her fiancé standing watch. It was unclear, however, whether the events of Big Bang Two eventually invalidated this historical fact. (TV: The Big Bang)
Moreover, Jack Harkness continued to go through a cycle of death and rebirth, after having been buried alive underneath Cardiff the previous century. He would not escape from his earthen tomb until the early 20th century. (TV: Exit Wounds)
Behind the scenes
- According to the Strange to Tell section of The Dalek World, a Dalek saucer crashed in the Himalayas in the year 141. Finding it difficult to travel over the ice and snow, the Daleks crawled out of their casing and discovered that, because of the rarified atmosphere and sub-zero temperatures, they were able to survive. These Dalek mutants ultimately became known as the legendary Yeti.
