Vienna was a city in Austria.
Visits by the Doctor Edit
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)
After World War II, Vienna was administered by the Allied Control Console. The city was divided into four zones patrolled by the United Kingdom, France, the United States of America and Soviet Union.
In 1948, the Sixth Doctor, Constance Clarke and Flip Jackson visited Vienna.
The Fifth Doctor and Peri Brown also visited Vienna in 2100, if only long enough to deposit the Time Lord Techu there. (PROSE: Leap Second)
