Jules Verne was a writer of science fiction.
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 Eighth Doctor's TARDIS' console room, "inherited" from his predecessor who had adopted it towards the end of his life, (TV: Doctor Who, AUDIO: The Light at the End) was compared to something out of Jules Verne by several people, including the Fourth Doctor, (AUDIO: The Light at the End) 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)
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)
