Bombay was a city in India. According to Bernice Summerfield, it had a horrible stench, and "smell[ed] like no other place I've ever visited". In her opinion, 1887 Bombay was a "city whose people think that the function of a river is to act as a latrine upstream and a launderette downstream."
As its river opened out onto the Indian Ocean, it was a natural port, and one of the lynchpins of the British Raj's hold over India. P&O naturally serviced the port, and it was for the Matilda Briggs that the Seventh Doctor, John Watson, and Sherlock Holmes once waited in the city.

In the 21st century, Bombay had a T-Mat centre. (TV: The Seeds of Death)
