Journeys to South America Edit
Shortly afterward, Challenger led a second expedition (PROSE: The Found World) to the Amazon (PROSE: Mad Dogs and Englishmen) accompanied by Edward Malone and John Roxton. This trip resulted in the discovery of the "lost world", a plateau home to ancient peoples and dinosaurs. Challenger decided that it would be best to keep the location of the plateau a secret from the outside world so that its inhabitants could continue to live in peace. (PROSE: The Found World)
In autumn 1894, Jenny Flint heard that Professor Challenger had returned from his travels and was promising to show some of his discoveries to the public. (PROSE: The Singular Case of the Time Machine) Challenger had a set of blurry photos and a Pterodactyl egg which hatched while Challenger was in Regent Street. (PROSE: Mad Dogs and Englishmen)
After the start of World War I, Herbert Asquith requested that Challenger venture to the plateau and bring back dinosaurs for use in warfare. Although Challenger was initially reluctant to break his promise to never return, he eventually agreed and a third expedition was mounted in 1916 which resulted in three Apatosaurus being brought to London.
Further exploits Edit
In 1942, Challenger attempted to capture the evil genius Fu Manchu. After searching for Manchu in West Yorkshire, Challenger took a train to London which the Eighth Doctor and Char were also on. Challenger sat in the same compartment as Van Helsing. (PROSE: Mad Dogs and Englishmen)
