John Angus Mackay was Professor Edward Travers' companion on his expedition to the Himalayas in 1935. He was killed by a robot yeti when they were sleeping in their camp. Travers caught a glimpse of the furry creature, which led him to believe the Second Doctor (wearing his giant shaggy coat) murdered John. (TV: The Abominable Snowmen)

In an alternate version of Earth, John survived the expedition in the Himalayas and Travers did not. (PROSE: The Schizoid Earth)

Behind the scenes Edit
