Type: Village
First seen in: The Eleventh Hour
Appearances: TV: Amy's Choice, COMIC: Dino World

Leadworth was the English village where Amy Pond, Rory Williams and Melody Pond spent a significant amount of their formative years. It was also the first place the TARDIS landed following the Doctor's twelfth regeneration. (TV: The Eleventh Hour, Let's Kill Hitler)

Location Edit

Leadworth was likely located in Gloucestershire, since Amy once characterised the town as being half an hour by car from the nearest city, Gloucester. (TV: The Eleventh Hour) However, an edition of The Leadworth Chronicle — a paper which proclaimed its dedication to "local news" in its masthead – prominently featured an article detailing the triumph of the Colchester Knights, a football side. (TV: Let's Kill Hitler)

Amenities Edit

Leadworth had no airport nor a nuclear power station. It did have a post office, a parish church called Saint John's Church, a fire station and a hospital called Royal Leadworth Hospital, where Rory worked. (TV: The Eleventh Hour) It was located near a crop field. (TV: Let's Kill Hitler)

Using the psychic paper, Rory Williams was identified as Earl of Upper Leadworth, a presumably fictional title. (COMIC: Ripper's Curse)

History Edit

Some time before Easter 1996 a mysterious crack in time had opened in Leadworth, linking it to an Atraxi prison. It allowed the shape-changing Prisoner Zero to escape into the village. On Easter, the Doctor's TARDIS, piloted by the Eleventh Doctor, who had just regenerated and could not properly steer the damaged craft, crashed near Amy's house in her backyard.

In 2008, the village was invaded by the Atraxi, who had come in search of Prisoner Zero. The Doctor, for whom only a short time had passed, defeated Prisoner Zero and then ordered the Atraxi to leave. (TV: The Eleventh Hour)
