I don't expect to get much answer from this, as I'm honestly surprised these mini-episodes are still around and buried on the BBC website, but still: where do the names Tina Macmillin, Chenna and Atif come from for Tardisodes 8, 9 and 12? -- Tybort (talk page) 15:22, October 19, 2012 (UTC)

I did a little bit of searching and couldn't find anything for those names. Are the episodes available on Youtube? I've never seen them but if they're available and have credits, then maybe someone can check it out. Shambala108 18:29, October 19, 2012 (UTC)
As I said, they're buried on the BBC site (the links to the wmv file can be found on the respective pages for the Tardisodes). They're just minute-long teasers related to the upcoming episodes, so no credits, just a time vortex and the Doctor Who logo. -- Tybort (talk page) 00:29, October 20, 2012 (UTC)
The only lead I have for you is that provided by the article on Chenna. It seems possible that these characters are named by Doctor Who: The Time Traveller's Almanac. Though non-narrative, this would be an acceptable source for the naming of articles, since the only alternative allowed by the narrative source would be something like Woman (Tardisode 8), Woman (Tardisode 9), etc. Bascially, a secondary source becomes acceptable when there's no primary source to contradict it.
Again though, I don't know for sure whether the Almanac has these names, but the article suggests it might.
