Jean-Paul Sartre was a human existentialist whose work included Huis Clos. (PROSE: Long Term) He once said, "We are all alone in the universe." Susan Foreman wrote about this in her 27 March diary entry, and wondered if Sartre was a renegade Time Lord like herself. (PROSE: Time and Relative)
Iris Wildthyme and Dodie Golightly saw Sartre while visiting the Café Flore in the early 1950s. (PROSE: The Ninnies on Putney Common)
Ruby Duvall only knew of Sartre's existence from a joke written on the bathroom wall at the BBC:
- To be is to do – Descartes.
- To do is to be – Sartre.
- Do be do be do – Frank Sinatra.
