|Timeline for 5000|
• 4997 • 4998 • 5006
5000 was, according to the Fourth Doctor, the year of the Great Breakout, a time when humanity surged across the galaxy like a tidal wave. A ship en route to Titan Base encountered a virus of unknown origin. The Doctor identified it as a sentient virus known as the Swarm. After the Doctor was infected by the Swarm, he and Leela went to the Bi-Al Foundation, where they were helped by Professor Frederick Marius and K9 Mark I to defeat/cure the virus. When they returned to the TARDIS to depart, the professor gave them K9. This began the Doctor's long association with the K9 series of robots. (TV: The Invisible Enemy) In response to Rose Tyler's comment that a succeeding K9 model looked "disco", the Tenth Doctor asserted that "in the year 5000 this was cutting edge." (TV: School Reunion)
The Eighth Doctor and his companions Fitz Kreiner and Trix MacMillan visited Moscow in this year. By this time, Earth was undergoing another Ice Age (PROSE: Emotional Chemistry) and experienced World War VI, fought against the Supreme Alliance of Eastern States led by the tyrannical Magnus Greel. (TV: The Talons of Weng-Chiang; PROSE: Doctor Who and the Talons of Weng-Chiang; AUDIO: The Butcher of Brisbane)Third Doctor visited London. (COMIC: A Stitch in Time)
