A Romantic Evening was a Brief Encounter short story published in DWM 187.

Summary Edit

Alistair and Doris Lethbridge-Stewart are looking through their wedding photographs one evening when the Seventh Doctor suddenly appears in some of them. Alistair and Doris both know the Doctor wasn't there — or was he? When the pair begin to vaguely recall having seen the Doctor at the wedding, they wonder if the Time Lord has somehow altered time so he could attend after all.

Continuity Edit

  • Doris was originally referenced by Herbert Clegg in TV: Planet of the Spiders, albeit only as someone who had given the Brigadier a watch in a hotel by the sea in Brighton — a matter the Brigadier seemed embarrassed to discuss in detail.
  • This story is set at some unspecified point after the events of TV: Battlefield. The Brigadier mentions having apologised to the Doctor at some unseen point — presumably while the Time Lord was cooking supper, as he agrees to do at the end of that story — for not inviting him to the wedding, only to have received the reply, "Never mind, you can invite me now".
