In 1868, the First Doctor, Ian and Barbara helped Thomas Huxley investigate disappearances in the London Undergrounds; where they discovered the Zarbi and the Animus settled. They were able to kill the Animus with a train and send the Zarbi back home, but the Doctor soon realised that his companions had gone missing. (COMIC: Prisoners of Time)

In 1892, the Eleventh Doctor showed the Great Intelligence a map of the London Underground from 1967, and said that it was "a key strategic weakness in metropolitan living." He then went on to say, "but then I've never liked a tunnel." (TV: The Snowmen)

20th century Edit

During World War II, a military transit camp was constructed in Goodge Street station. The rooms and corridors remained, shut off from public access, for decades after the war finished. (TV: The Web of Fear)

The platforms and tunnels of the Underground were used by the Great Intelligence to pull in the Second Doctor and his companions Jamie McCrimmon and Victoria Waterfield in the TARDIS and have them attacked by its robot Yetis. (TV: The Web of Fear)

At some point after this adventure, the Brigadier and the exiled-to-Earth Third Doctor were forced to chase an alien master of disguise throughout the Underground system. The Doctor discovered that the inter-galactic criminal, Hingrad, had dug a secret passage from the bowels of the Tower Hill tube station to the base of the Tower of London. The Doctor followed Hingrad to the Tower, but was unable to capture him. He did, however, succeed in preventing Hingrad from stealing the Crown Jewels. (COMIC: Secret of the Tower)
