Lewis belonged to a group called the Inklings, as did his friend John. They met at a pub called the Eagle and Child. He read a fantasy story inspired by the Doctor's adventures. It had fictional versions of Amy and Rory as its heroes, alongside "the Professor". The Doctor suggested that the story should include a wardrobe. (COMIC: The Professor, the Queen and the Bookshop)
Behind the scenes Edit
C.S. Lewis wrote the Narnia books for children. He also wrote a "space fiction" trilogy, which, like early Doctor Who involved ordinary people visiting alien planets. Many commenters have compared the TARDIS to the magical wardrobe in Lewis' The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe, the first-written of the Narnia books. The Doctor Who story The Doctor, the Widow and the Wardrobe borrows the form of its title, some visual imagery and plot elements from The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe.
