Hitchemus was a planet which orbited Beta Canum Venaticorum (also known as Chara), a G-type star. A day lasted for twenty-two hours with no more than six hours of darkness. There was only one landmass on the planet (Port Any), as Hitchemus was seven-eighths ocean. The nearest human colony to Hitchemus was Chi Bootis.
Behind the scenes Edit
Kate Orman's The Caterpillar Room, published in A Second Target for Tommy, features the Doctor, Fitz Kreiner, and Anji Kapoor returning to Hitchemus a century after the events of The Year of Intelligent Tigers. By this point, the humans and Hitchemus Tigers are in a truce while the rising oceans of the planet continue to threaten what little land remains.
