Influence on the Doctor Edit
The Doctor had a long-standing connection with the British Government, consorting with monarchs (TV: The Beast Below), Prime Ministers, (TV: The Christmas Invasion) and other members. (TV: The Claws of Axos)
In 2050, the British Government was somehow taken over by a Korven called Lomax who turned it into a corrupt, totalitarian government in preparation for the pending Korven invasion. By this time, government agencies MI5 and MI6 appeared to have merged together to form the Department. The British government had also gained control of the Americas, the Pacific Union, and several other countries they considered 'lesser'. (TV: Regeneration) [additional sources needed]
