Vienna was a city in Austria.
Visits by the Doctor Edit
The Fifth Doctor, River Song and Brooke visited Vienna in the 18th century investigating an alien trace. They arrived around the time Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart finished his Requiem in D minor. Together they prevented multiple fatalities at the premiere performance of the Requieum caused by Aqua Galatia. (AUDIO: A Requiem for the Doctor)
Vienna was particularly favoured by the Eighth Doctor. He left Samson and Gemma Griffin in Vienna while answering a distress signal from his future self. (AUDIO: Mary's Story) Later, he took Mary Shelley there on her very first journey in the TARDIS, attempting to reunite with Samson and Gemma. However, he got the date wrong and landed in 1873 instead of 1816. On this trip, he and Shelley battled Cybermen. (AUDIO: The Silver Turk) On another occasion, he battled a Bacchanite in Vienna and in the process inspired Johann Wolfgang von Goethe to write Faust. (PROSE: The Sorrows of Vienna)
Other visitors Edit
Sherlock Holmes and John Watson went on holiday to Vienna on the Orient Express. (PROSE: All-Consuming Fire) Indeed, Vienna was highly significant to Europe's railway network, being a stop on the Transcontinental Express as well. On 3 September 1939, Romana II rode the Calais-Vienna leg of that journey. (AUDIO: A Blind Eye)
Known residents Edit
Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart was known to have lived in Vienna for a time, and indeed his DNA was once recovered from a harpsichord there and used to clone him. (AUDIO: My Own Private Wolfgang) He lived there in the 18th century with his wife Constanze who loved him very much. Mozart died because he was poisoned by Aqua Galatia. (AUDIO: A Requiem for the Doctor)
