|Timeline for 79|
73 • 75 • 80
On 24 August 79, the Tenth Doctor caused Mount Vesuvius to erupt, killing thousands of Pompeii's residents as well as the invading Pyroviles when faced with the alternative of the Pyroviles turning Earth into a molten wasteland and erasing humankind's extant future. He had no choice but to let this happen, well aware he was creating a fixed point in time which would be forever ingrained in human history. Donna Noble shared the burden of setting off the eruption with him, knowing what effect this would have on the Doctor if he committed the act alone. Thanks to Donna's pleading, he saved one of the town's families, the Caecilius family. (TV: The Fires of Pompeii)
The Seventh Doctor and Melanie Bush likewise arrived in Pompeii and witnessed the eruption of Mount Vesuvius, but the Doctor remained completely ignorant of the presence of both his future self and the Pyroviles in the city. (AUDIO: The Fires of Vulcan)
