Tara was a planet that resembled medieval Earth. It had lush green fields, attractive landscapes and medieval-type forests.

Culture and technology Edit

Tara was a planet colonised by humans who chose to pattern their culture on late medieval customs, with a rigid monarchical hierarchy.

The Taran nobility took pride in their scientific and mechanical ignorance, leaving such matters to the 'peasants'. Their primary ranged weapon was a crossbow that fired electric bolts; this was considered a peasant's weapon.

The Tarans were known as master android-makers, although the work was only carried out by the lesser orders. (TV: The Androids of Tara)

History Edit

The Museum of the Last Ones had specimens of extinct species from Tara. (PROSE: The Last Dodo)

Centuries before the arrival of the Fourth Doctor and Romana I, a plague wiped out 90% of Tara's population. During this time of strife, the peasants were largely abandoned by the ruling class and manufactured large numbers of androids to cope with the labour shortage. (TV: The Androids of Tara)

By the 30th century, the ideas of nobility were under threat from the Liberal Reconstructionists. (PROSE: So Vile a Sin)
