TARDIS Index File



Easter was an Earth holiday usually celebrated in March or April.

On Easter of 1996, seven-year-old Amelia Pond was praying to Santa Claus. She asked him to send someone to fix the crack in her bedroom wall just before the newly-regenerated Eleventh Doctor crashed in her garden on Earth and met her for the first time. (TV: The Eleventh Hour)

Because it was a moveable feast, the Doctor had difficulty navigating his TARDIS to the correct date. The Tenth Doctor, however, landed on Easter 2009 in time to enjoy a chocolate Easter egg and to save Earth from an incursion of Stingrays. On this occasion, he also said that he had been present at the original Easter and intimated that the events were at variance with what humans believed. (TV: Planet of the Dead)
