EastEnders was a television show broadcast in the United Kingdom during the 20th and 21st century.


After a year away from Earth, (TV: Aliens of London) Rose Tyler made the Ninth Doctor spend a day off with her watching old episodes on video in her flat and catching up on storylines which she had missed. The Doctor used this to his advantage when he used the Fowlers's residence in the series to inform Rose of the answer to a test set by Lazlee Flowers. (PROSE: The Monsters Inside)

Pete's World did not have EastEnders, much to Jackie Tyler's continued disappointment. The programme was one of the things she missed from the Doctor's universe. (AUDIO: The Siege of Big Ben)

Evelyn Smythe, having left with the Sixth Doctor in the year 2000, had "foreknowledge" of 1990s EastEnders episodes, and made a bit of cash off this, betting for the correct outcome. (PROSE: Instruments of Darkness)

Among the casualties of the Vore invasion of Earth in 2005 were members of the cast of the series; they had lost more than Coronation Street. (PROSE: The Gallifrey Chronicles)

In 2007, with the new "ghost" craze sweeping the planet, one of the killed-off characters, Den Watts, was brought back to the show in ghost form, using one of the ghosts which materialised during that period. The Tenth Doctor flicked through this episode of EastEnders along with Ghostwatch and Trisha Goddard, while investigating the new phenomenon at Jackie Tyler's flat. The ghosts were later revealed to be Cybermen attempting to cross between universes. (TV: Army of Ghosts)

When Amy Pond and Rory Williams suddenly ended up in a doll's house, Rory suggested that the Eleventh Doctor was in an EastEnders-like place. (TV: Night Terrors)

When Rani Chandra had the Berserker pendant she told her father to do Bianca, from EastEnders. Haresh said: "Ricky. Whitney. Pat." (TV: The Mark of the Berserker)

Sophie was a fan of EastEnders. In 2007 she was watching Ghostwatch and texted them that "Dirty Den" was back. (GAME: Ghostwatch)

In a timeline where River Song caused time to collapse when she refused to kill the Eleventh Doctor, (TV: The Wedding of River Song) William Shakespeare became the boss of EastEnders on 22 April 2011. (PROSE: Just a Minute...)

During the Twelfth Doctor's imprisonment in the Prison, Clara Oswald taught Class 2A's art class. She asked the students to paint a placard with the slogan "SAVE THE DOCTOR" but instead, they got confused and began to paint "SAVE DOT COTTON". Clara explained to the Governor that Dot Cotton was a "famous Cockney chimney". (PROSE: The Blood Cell)

EastEnders was among the 20th century Earth television shows broadcast by Reef Station One in the New Earth Republic during the 101st century. (PROSE: Synthespians™)

Chantelle had been on EastEnders at some point by 2020. (PROSE: At Childhood's End)

Fiction or reality?[[edit]]

Whilst the majority of sources agree that the characters and setting depicted within the show are works of fiction, one account posited that Walford, Albert Square, and its residents not only really existed, but were all at the centre of a plot by the First Rani to trap the Doctor and their companions. During this event, the Doctor met some of the Square's residents, including real versions of Pauline and Pat. (TV: Dimensions in Time)

Conversely, another source implied this event to be a dream that the Seventh Doctor had, in which, he claimed, all his old enemies chased him around the EastEnders sets. (PROSE: First Frontier)

Another account seemed to indicate a version of the show's iconic pub, The Queen Victoria, existed in the version of London aboard the Starship UK in the 3290s. (TV: The Beast Below)
