Mutter's Spiral was the Time Lord designation for the galaxy in which the solar system was located. (TV: The Deadly Assassin, et. al.) Humans knew Mutter's Spiral as the Milky Way or as Adric referred to it, Galaxia Kyklos. (TV: Four to Doomsday) By the time of Sabalom Glitz, it also went by the name of the Stellian Galaxy. (TV: The Mysterious Planet)

Mutter's Spiral was approximately one hundred thousand light-years in diameter. Its nearest significant neighbouring galaxy was the Andromeda Galaxy. It was also surrounded by several nearby minor satellite galaxies, such as Galaxy Seven, (PROSE: The Eyeless) and the two dwarf galaxies the Larger Magallenic Cloud and Smaller Magallenic Cloud (AUDIO: The Last Voyage).

The Doctor frequented Earth, a planet in Mutter's Spiral. (TV: An Unearthly Child, et al.) On one occasion, Earth was moved out of the galaxy to the Medusa Cascade by the Daleks. (TV: The Stolen Earth)
