Jules Verne was a writer of science fiction.
Jules Verne once had an adventure with the Doctor in which they encountered Silurians and a giant squid. This inspired Verne to write 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea, although the Doctor convinced Jules to remove the Silurians from the story. (PROSE: Peacemaker) The Doctor also suggested Verne add more chrome to the Nautilus. (COMIC: Final Sacrifice) On an earlier occasion, the First Doctor claimed to have worked alongside Verne for many years. (PROSE: 64 Carlysle Street)
The TARDIS' console room was compared to something out of Jules Verne by several people, including Charley Pollard (AUDIO: The Stones of Venice), Sam Jones (PROSE: Seeing I, Vanderdeken's Children, The Scarlet Empress), Fitz Kreiner (PROSE: The Blue Angel) and Nina Kellow. (PROSE: Rip Tide)
- Verne himself wasn't mentioned in the story.
In 1858, Amy Pond jokingly suggested to Eldritch Valdemar that she had read many of Verne's works. The Eleventh Doctor told her that Verne had not published any of his works yet. (COMIC: The Screams of Death)
