The First Doctor was given Spanish oranges by Miguel de Cervantes. In 1400, while acting as the Lord of Misrule at Sonning Palace's Epiphany feast, he appeared to pull one from behind the ear of a bishop. A model fish on the table burst open to reveal more oranges. (AUDIO: The Doctor's Tale)
Oranges grew in the warm Mediterranean climate of the Duchy of San Martino in 15th century Italy. Sarah Jane Smith was picking and eating oranges when she was captured by members of the Cult of Demnos. (TV: The Masque of Mandragora)
Like other citrus fruits, oranges were rich in citric acid, a precursor to Vitamin C. They would not have been on the menu for Cessair of Diplos, for whom citric acid was toxic, a fact discovered by Romana I and Professor Rumford. (TV: The Stones of Blood)
One Christmas eve, the Fourth Doctor and Romana II sneaked into Alistair Gordon Lethbridge-Stewart's house dressed as Santa Claus and left two oranges and a walnut in his Christmas stocking. (PROSE: Better Watch Out, Better Take Care)
