San Francisco was a city located in California in the United States of America. According to a mid-20th century resident named Jessica Willamy, it was mostly known for "the streetcars and the hills, the rich suburbs and the bay". But it was also famous in American history for at least two major cultural events: the 1906 earthquake and the Summer of Love in 1967. (PROSE: Wonderland)

History Edit

On 18 April 1906, San Francisco was ravaged by an earthquake and consumed by fire. Azathoth and her rakshassi army, having been diverted here by the Seventh Doctor, were consumed in the fire. (PROSE: All-Consuming Fire) The vampire known as Weird Harold was found buried alive after the earthquake. (PROSE: Vampire Science) While wondering why the residents of Pompeii didn't move away after the 62 earthquake, the Tenth Doctor answered his own question by saying, "then again, San Francisco". Lobus Caecilius believed the Doctor was referring to a restaurant in Naples. (TV: The Fires of Pompeii)

In 1967, when the city was the hub of the hippie movement, the Second Doctor, Ben Jackson and Polly Wright attended the Human Be-In event in Golden Gate Park and put a stop to a dangerous strain of LSD called Blue Moonbeams, which threatened to kill many of the people in attendance.

Immediately after their arrival, Iris spilled gin into the bus' control and out into Time Vortex, resulting in various different versions of Panda from alternative realities crossing over into the primary universe. With the assistance of Dr George Strangeways, Iris was able to close the rift, though not before the Panda from the primary universe had been dragged into it.
