The Venerable Bede was a monk and historian who spent the major part of his life in his monastery at Jarrow. He was apparently very fond of fish.

The First Doctor and Susan Foreman once shared a fish dinner with Bede. (AUDIO: The Flames of Cadiz)

The Fourth Doctor later told Professor Litefoot that he shared a salmon which he had caught in the River Fleet with him. It is possible that he was referring to the same encounter. (TV: The Talons of Weng-Chiang)

The Seventh Doctor once claimed that Bede had made him an honorary dean of Westminster Abbey. (PROSE: Companion Piece)
