World

From Tardis Wiki, the free Doctor Who reference

"World" was a term for someone's reality or universe — the environment they inhabited and experienced. As such, someone's "world" could be used to refer to their native universe or dimension, such that parallel universes were sometimes called "parallel worlds", (TV: Doomsday [+]Loading...["Doomsday (TV story)"], Turn Left [+]Loading...["Turn Left (TV story)"]) but also, in a common figurative use, to refer to someone's planet of origin; for example, the Eleventh Doctor described Earth as "your world" to Amy Pond (TV: Victory of the Daleks [+]Loading...["Victory of the Daleks (TV story)"]) and the War Chief described the Galaxy as containing "a thousand inhabited worlds".
