On 2 September 1666, (PROSE: Matrix, Doctor Who and the Visitation) the Fifth Doctor accidentally started the Great Fire of London. (TV: The Visitation)

On the same day, the Fourth Doctor and Sarah Jane Smith were also in the vicinity of greater London. They landed the TARDIS in a bubonic plague-infested area. Sarah contracted the plague, while the Doctor tried to warn the locals — some of whom were Republicans and some of whom were loyal to Charles II — to the spread of the oncoming Great Fire. He managed to get the two groups to work together against the approaching fire, then returned to the TARDIS with the ailing Sarah in time to give her some useful antibiotics. However, some of the antibiotics were stolen by one of the locals. The theft threatened to destroy the delicate fabric of the Web of Time. (PROSE: The Republican's Story)

Shortly thereafter, George, Helen, Ida and Alan Mortimer were rescued from the Great Fire by the First Doctor. It is possible that, for a brief period after the First Doctor's arrival, that there were three separate incarnations of the Doctor co-existing in the same timeframe and in close promixity to one another. (PROSE: Doctor Who and the Invasion from Space)

The renegade Time Lady Iris Wildthyme also claimed to have been present for the Great Fire. (AUDIO: Excelis Dawns)

In 1752, Greyjan the Sane became Lord President of Gallifrey. (PROSE: The Ancestor Cell)
