The RMS Titanic was a luxury ocean liner on Earth in the early 20th century, noted as being the largest steamship of its time, carrying 2,223 passengers. (TV: Let's Kill Hitler) It was famously called "unsinkable"[source needed], yet sank on its maiden voyage on 15 April 1912 after colliding with an iceberg. (TV: The Invasion of Time)
The Seventh Doctor, Ace and Bernice Summerfield travelled to the Titanic, tracking Huitzilin. They were on the ship when it collided with the iceberg. The Doctor noted that the event of its sinking was part of the Web of Time. (PROSE: The Left-Handed Hummingbird)
The Fourth Doctor had an issue of the Daily Mirror describing the disaster, which he saw Borusa reading. On noticing this, the Doctor promised that he had nothing to do with the ship's destruction. (TV: The Invasion of Time)
The Ninth Doctor persuaded several people to not board the liner on its maiden voyage. (TV: Rose) He later told Jabe that he had once been on a ship that "they said was unsinkable." He "ended up clinging to [the] iceberg," commentating that "it wasn't half cold." (TV: The End of the World)
Following the sinking, measures were taken place to see that such an accident would not occur again. To that end, the International Ice Patrol was formed and future ships would have round-the-clock radio surveillance and lifeboats for everyone. As the Seventh Doctor noted to Cristián Alvarez, to prevent the Titanic disaster would condemn future passengers. (PROSE: The Left-Handed Hummingbird)
When asked by her teacher why the Titanic sank, Mels said it was because the Doctor didn't save it, and then called the teacher stupid for not knowing. This got her sent to the head teacher's office. (TV: Let's Kill Hitler)
