Aberdeen was a city in Scotland.
Leela once referred to it as the "granite city", and the Fourth Doctor noted that in fact the granite emitted more radiation into the bodies of the residents of Aberdeen than would a nuclear power plant into its workers. (TV: Underworld)
Behind the scenes Edit
- In real life, though not specified in any script, Aberdeen is specifically in the northeast of Scotland. It is some 570 miles (928 kilometres) distant from Croydon.
- According to non-narrative information in the DWBIT Daleks vs Cybermen Special, in 2007, the battle that began at Canary Wharf stretched as far as Aberdeen. A group of Cybermen hid in an alleyway and used one Cyberman as bait to lure in the Daleks. Once some Daleks arrived, the Cybermen emerged and attacked, managing to rip the dome off of one Dalek's casing. There was also a human casualty, while a report of the fight was taken by a Professor J B Shilling.
