Fiction was antithetical to facts and data, (TV: The Long Game) or true history. (TV: Castrovalva) Fiction was thus often seen as unreliable (TV: Black Orchid[additional sources needed]) or indeed "silly", "just stories" not worthy of serious consideration. (TV: Human Nature)

Books (TV: Black Orchid) and pulp fiction (TV: The Gathering) were examples. By the 51st century, fiction was also distributed by holovid, direct-to-brain downloads and fiction mist. (TV: Silence in the Library)

The DoctorDonna noted that Charlie Brown was fiction. (TV: Journey's End)

It was possible to be turned into fiction; this was one of the powers of the Master of the Land of Fiction over whoever entered his domain, although he could only complete the process if the people he was transmuting "stuck to the script" as much as possible. (TV: The Mind Robber) In the War in Heaven, The Book of the Enemy was a book which erased its readers from history, turning them into fictional characters, (PROSEThe Book of the Enemy) and the planet Ochenissi and its inhabitants were said to have been turned into fiction in the Four Seconds of Ochenissi. (PROSE: Going Once, Going Twice)

Iris Wildthyme and Panda were once turned into fiction as well. (PROSE: Untitled)
