A volcano was an opening in a planet's surface, usually mountainous, which allowed hot lava, ash and gases to escape from below the surface. The word was coined by Pompeiian Lobus Caecilius on witnessing Vesuvius' eruption in 79. He believed that the "great god Vulcan must [have been] so enraged" and described the eruption as "so volcanic" and that it was "like some sort of volcano". (TV: The Fires of Pompeii)
Volcanoes on Earth Edit
Earth at an early stage of its development had many active volcanoes which constantly erupted for millions of years, resulting in the formation of the planet's granite crust. This was observed by the Fourth Doctor, who found the process marvellous, and Sarah Jane Smith, who found it horrible. (AUDIO: Exploration Earth)
In 79, the Roman city of Pompeii was destroyed in the eruption of the volcano Vesuvius. (AUDIO: The Fires of Vulcan, TV: The Fires of Pompeii) The eruption was set off by the Tenth Doctor and his companion Donna Noble, destroying the Pyroviles and opening a rift in time for a second. The event was also a fixed point in time and could not be changed. (TV: The Fires of Pompeii)
In 1984, the Dominator Haag set up base in an Icelandic volcano and attempted to acquire Earth's core for his fleet, causing an increase in volcanic activity. UNIT soldiers investigated and turning his equipment against him, creating an explosion which destroyed the aliens and causing the volcano to erupt. (COMIC: The Fires Down Below)
Volcanoes on other worlds Edit
On Skaro, the invading Monstrons made their base inside an extinct volcano. A Dalek sacrificed its life to set off a volcanic eruption that destroyed the Monstrons. (COMIC: The Menace of the Monstrons)
Planets with high levels of volcanic activity included Gehenna (PROSE: Mean Streets), Krop Tor, (TV: The Impossible Planet / The Satan Pit) Sarn (TV: Planet of Fire) and Tigus. (TV: The Daleks' Master Plan)
Hallucination of a volcano Edit
Clara Oswald, after entering a dream like state with a mood patch, believed that she visited a volcano to destroy the TARDIS keys in lava to blackmail the Twelfth Doctor into saving Danny Pink's life. (TV: Dark Water)
