The First Doctor wishes the viewers "A happy Christmas to all of you at home." (TV: "The Feast of Steven")

When the Doctor wished "a Happy Christmas to all of you at home", (TV: "The Feast of Steven") Iris Wildthyme had just awoken from an alcohol-induced sleep, and she staggered through the now open Fourth Wall to an snowy area where her beautiful bus stood waiting. (PROSE: From Wildthyme with Love)

Behind the scenes[]

The fourth wall, initially a piece of theatre terminology, has been "broken" numerous times in the DWU; however, From Wildthyme with Love marks the first time the fourth wall itself has been mentioned in-universe.

However, despite the fourth wall being acknowledged (as well as the exact circumstances around it from The Daleks' Master Plan), Iris Wildthyme escapes through it to another in-universe location; however, this doesn't make much sense as logically escaping though the fourth wall should lead her to the real world.
