Michael Faraday was a 19th century British scientist whose discoveries about electromagnetism were "destined to bring light to the world." (PROSE: The Mark of the Rani) The Eighth Doctor commented that, with the coming of the 20th century, the age of the gentleman scientist would end. He cited Faraday as an example of one such scientist. (PROSE: The Banquo Legacy)

In the 1820s, he was expected in a scientific meeting in Killingworth sponsored by Lord Ravensworth and hosting George Stephenson, among the others. The meeting was supposedly cancelled after the plots of the Rani and the Master, thwarted by the Sixth Doctor. (TV: The Mark of the Rani)
