Info needs to be added from, well, The Library of Alexandria. Also COMIC: Hypothetical Gentleman.

These omissions are so great that the article's factual accuracy has been compromised. Check out the discussion page and revision history for further clues about what needs to be updated in this article.

The Library of Alexandria was a library built by the ancient Greeks in the Egyptian town of Alexandria. Its librarians not only ejected the Fourth Doctor but suspended his lending privileges, because, according to him, "they didn't trust me after I misshelved the Dead Sea Scrolls". Nevertheless, he still had one of their books, Ptolemy's Treatise on the Structure, Position and Medicinal Nature of Celestial Bodies out on loan some 2093 years and four months after it was due back. (PROSE: Eye of Heaven)

At some point, the Library of Alexandria was set on fire. At some point before his seventh incarnation, the Doctor saved two plays by Aristophanes from the flames. (PROSE: Timewyrm: Apocalypse) The Eighth Doctor told Tamsin Drew that he couldn't save the Halcyon from the Ice Warriors any more than he could prevent the fire of the Library of Alexandria. (AUDIO: The Resurrection of Mars)
