John "J. R. R." Tolkien was the author of The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings. While working at a garden centre, Fitz Kreiner had a conversation with a woman who incorrectly named him as R. J. Tolkien. Fitz convinced her that the character of Frodo had been named after a woman with whom Tolkien had a relationship. (PROSE: The Taint)
Tolkien briefly met the Eleventh Doctor and Amy Pond during a C. S. Lewis reading at an Inklings gathering at The Eagle and Child of a story that would become The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe. Tolkien didn't like Lewis' work much, saying that it contained a meaningless mixture of too many mythologies. (COMIC: The Professor, the Queen and the Bookshop)
