Event One, also known as the Big Bang, was an explosion, the biggest "in history" according to Nyssa (TV: Castrovalva) and the biggest "of all time" according to Fifth Doctor, (TV: Terminus) which resulted in the creation of the universe. (TV: The Big Bang) The Beast called it "the Cataclysm". (TV: The Satan Pit)
At least one universe existed before the one the Doctor lived in. (PROSE: The Pit, PROSE: Millennial Rites, TV: Secrets of the Stars) The Great Old Ones, the Beast, and the Disciples of the Light, natives of this pre-universe, survived the Big Bang. (PROSE: The Quantum Archangel, TV: The Impossible Planet) The Ancient Lights continued some sort of existence after Event One, but was unable to enter the new universe. (TV: Secrets of the Stars)
Before the universe, two beings of good and evil, possibly related to the Great Old Ones, existed and were caught in the explosion. While it is unclear what happened to the good force, the evil force, which later came to be called Fenric, survived and encountered the Doctor in 3rd century Constantinople and in Maiden's Point in 1943. (TV: The Curse of Fenric)
The Second Doctor tricked the Vist into travelling back in time to before the Time Lords evolved so they could claim ownership of time. Instead, they travelled to a point before the Big Bang, where there was no time for them to move across, and were thus trapped there forever. (AUDIO: The Forbidden Time)
The Eleventh Doctor tricked the Kin into thinking he was taking it to the Dawn of Time. Instead, he took the Kin to the moment just before the Big Bang and left it there, in the Void before Creation, where it could do no harm to the universe. Its last word before the Doctor left was, "Doctor!" (PROSE: Nothing O'Clock)
The Doctor's universe Edit
The Doctor speculated that the massive ship Terminus had time-jumped at some point, discharged its fuel and instigated the Big Bang before time-jumping a second time back from the distant past. (TV: Terminus)
Another account had a Time Lord from the High Council stating to the Sixth Doctor that the Vipod Mor, headed back in time to the creation of a galaxy, overshot and travelled back to before the universe, thus causing the Big Bang as a "dense monoblock of matter". (AUDIO: Slipback)
