30 January was notable for a number of highly varied events on Earth and its parallels.

In 1649, Charles I, King of England, Scotland, France and Ireland was executed for treason by the Rump Parliament. (PROSE: The Roundheads)

From 1918 to 2009, the Torchwood Institute in Cardiff brought young soldier Tommy Brockless out of stasis annually for tests and evaluation. (TV: To the Last Man)

In 1933, Adolf Hitler became Chancellor of Germany. (AUDIO: Neverland)

In 1948, Mohandas Gandhi was assassinated. Shot in the heart, his last words were "Hey Rama" — "Oh God". (PROSE: Ghosts of India)

In 1969, the Beatles performed an impromptu concert on the roof of the Apple Records building on Abbey Road in London. Ace prevented the killing of John Lennon during this concert. Huitzilin had hoped to feed upon the psychic energy released by the violence. In St John's Wood, Cristián Alvarez met the Seventh Doctor, Ace and Benny for one of several times in his life. (PROSE: The Left-Handed Hummingbird) The Tenth Doctor and Martha Jones attempted to witness the concert but ended up in 1669 instead. (COMIC: Black Death White Life)

In 2025, the Fourth Doctor and Leela attended an energy activist protest, led by Jack Coulson, against the GlobeSphere Corporation in Trafalgar Square. They then encountered the Daleks in London, who intended to destroy the Earth and all its human inhabitants by boosting the energy transfer to the planet the following day and therefore causing a multitude natural disasters. Luckily, the Doctor destroyed their Robomen through sonic waves, and re-targeted the energy transfer to the Dalek ship, defeating them too and saving the Earth. (AUDIO: Energy of the Daleks)
