In London during the 1890s, both the newly regenerated Twelfth Doctor and Clara Oswald were led to the Half-Face Man's base at Mancini's Family Restaurant through a hint in an issue of The Times newspaper that was left by someone they assumed to be intent on keeping the two of them together. This newspaper was delivered by Paternoster Gang butler, Strax, whose method of delivery differed from the norm in that he threw it through Madame Vastra's window, with the paper striking Clara in the face with enough force to knock her down. (TV: Deep Breath)
The Fifth Doctor found and read a September 1901 edition of The Times, the front page of which announced the launch of the first British submarine, in the crew room aboard the Shadow. (TV: Enlightenment)
When the Second Doctor arrived to meet Brigadier Lethbridge-Stewart at a UNIT reunion, he said he was here for his speech as guest of honour, revealing that he heard of it in The Times. Colonel Crichton pointed out that this was impossible as the reporter was still there. The Doctor explained that he heard it from "tomorrow's Times". (TV: The Five Doctors)
