The french revolution2

Susan reading the book. (TV: "An Unearthly Child")

The French Revolution was the title used for several Earth textbooks on the historical event.

In November 1963, Coal Hill School history teacher Barbara Wright gave a copy of one book entitled The French Revolution to her pupil Susan Foreman. Susan, who had visited the revolutionary period with her grandfather (PROSE: Just War), immediately noted errors in the book. The book was unusual as no author was credited on the cover. (TV: "An Unearthly Child") Susan later visited the French Revolution era again in July 1794. (TV: The Reign of Terror)

Later, Ace found a copy of the book in a science laboratory in Coal Hill School (however this would appear to be either a different edition or a different book altogether as it had a different cover than the one Susan read, though the copy Ace found likewise did not credit an author). (TV: Remembrance of the Daleks)

In 2011, Clyde Langer was seen reading a different book of the same title, ostensibly for his history class, though he preferred to use it to shield himself as he drew comic strips such as The Silver Bullet. (TV: The Curse of Clyde Langer)

In the 2010s, the Twelfth Doctor found a copy of the book in Coal Hill School. (COMIC: Witch Hunt)
