George Bernard Shaw

George Bernard Shaw was a 19th century Irish playwright. He wrote Widower's House, which Henry Gordon Jago erroneously believed was written by his fellow Irish playwright Oscar Wilde. (AUDIO: Beautiful Things)

While visiting Iceworld on Svartos in circa 2,000,000, the Seventh Doctor read Shaw's play The Doctor's Dilemma. (TV: Dragonfire)

The Eighth Doctor recalled once meeting Shaw at a party hosted by Wilde. (PROSE: The Gallifrey Chronicles)
