Los Angeles, often initialised as LA, was a major city in California. A significant portion of LA was the neighbourhood of Hollywood, famed as a global hub for film production. However, other parts of Los Angeles were of occasional interest to the Doctor and his friends, as well as Torchwood.

History Edit

Prehistory Edit

Circa 33,000 years BC, Eleventh Doctor and Rory Williams visited the site where Los Angeles would one day be built. The TARDIS became stuck in a tar pit, while they encounter a mammoth and a sabre-toothed tiger. (COMIC: The Doctor and the Nurse)

20th century Edit

The Second Doctor, Jamie McCrimmon and Victoria Waterfield once found themselves imprisoned in the city by Face-Painter, who somehow stripped them of their faces, and his minion, Rachel. (PROSE: Face-Painter)

On a later occasion, the Second Doctor took Jamie and Zoe Heriot to downtown LA in an effort to make them understand no society, even the most egalitarian-minded ones, could escape the difficulties of poverty. Arriving on a Christmas Eve in the late 20th century, the trio worked at the Midnight Mission and stopped a desperate homeless man named Charlie from robbing the charity. (PROSE: Goodwill Toward Men)

In 1936, the renegade Time Lady Iris Wildthyme and Jo Jones visited Hollywood in Los Angeles, where they met the Eighth Doctor.

In 1973, the Third Doctor and Jo Grant fought a vampire in Los Angeles. (AUDIO: The Elixir of Doom)

In 1976, two priests who were members of the Order of Saint Peter pursued a vampire from Poland to Los Angeles and destroyed it. One of them stayed behind to found a chapter of the order there, and later became the father of Becky Lee Kowalczyck. (AUDIO: Minuet in Hell)

Los Angeles hosted the 1984 Olympic Games, which were boycotted by the Soviet Union. (AUDIO: The Reaping)

In the waning months of the 20th century, Los Angeles was home to a shady conglomerate known as InterCom, which aroused the suspicion of UNIT, after it was linked to illegal sales of plutonium. Brigadier Lethbridge-Stewart was joined in his investigations in the city by the Fifth Doctor, Tegan Jovanka and Vislor Turlough in 1999. (PROSE: The King of Terror)

21st century Edit

Los Angeles was one of ten major cities across the world, all of which had underground railways, where Coldfire Construction built a reactor within a period of 18 months as part of a plot by the Slitheen to drain the Sun's energy, operated by at least one Slitheen disguised using a skin suit made from a local. At somepoint in 2008, after Sarah Jane Smith foiled the Slitheen with the help of her friends at Park Vale Comprehensive School at Ealing in London, she contacted UNIT so they would clear up the Coldfire sites. (TV: Revenge of the Slitheen)

In 2011, after Miracle Day, a renewed Torchwood team moved to Venice Beach to investigate closely what PhiCorp was up to in LA. Rex Matheson had family in this city. (TV: Escape to LA) Later, Oswald Danes presented the Miracle Rally, greatly raising his public image. (TV: The Categories of Life)

26th century Edit

In 2540, demonstrators in Los Angeles burned an effigy of the President of Earth. (TV: Frontier in Space)

Far future Edit

Toward the end of Earth's life, Cassandra O'Brien.Δ17 had a home on the Los Angeles Crevasse. (TV: The End of the World)

Though it's possible that a real world location doesn't exist in the same geographic space in the Doctor Who universe, such cases are few and far between. Thus, the map at right is probably a good indicator of the DWU location of Los Angeles.
