The Great Pyramid of Giza, sometimes known as the Great Pyramid of Cheops or of Khufu, was a pyramid in Giza, Egypt, once considered one of the Seven Wonders of the World. It housed the tomb of the Pharaoh Khufu. (COMIC: Minus Seven Wonders)
At the time of its erection, its surroundings were the set of an engagement between the First Doctor, the Monk and the Daleks. At the "west angle of the Great Pyramid", Steve and Sara, hostages of the Daleks, were released in exchange for the taranium core. (TV: The Daleks' Master Plan)
When the Tenth Doctor brought Martha Jones to see it in 2375 BC, it was stolen by Pholonius Ginn, who intended on selling it to the highest bidder on G-Bay. It was finally returned — with the other six Wonders — by Trongus Squum, at the Doctor's request. (COMIC: Minus Seven Wonders)
Other timelines Edit
It was the place where the timey-wimey distress beacon was built by River Song in an alternate timeline where all of history occurred at once. The timeline came into being because she refused to kill the Eleventh Doctor. The King's Chamber was where they had Madame Kovarian tied up. River was married to the Doctor on the top of the pyramid and she kissed him — actually the Teselecta — reverting the timeline. (TV: The Wedding of River Song)
Behind the scenes Edit
- According to Strange to Tell... According to the Daleks (a comic from The Dalek World which, due to not having a plot to speak of, is not considered a valid source on this Wiki), the Great Pyramid of Ghiza was constructed in the year 2000 B.C. by terrified Egyptians to mark the spot where a Dalek spacecraft had crashed.
