Hertfordshire was a county of England.

St Albans was located in Hertfordshire. (PROSE: The Little Things) The small village of Foxgrove was located there, as was, subsequently, the Broden New Town. (TV: The Temptation of Sarah Jane Smith) A local newspaper was the Hertfordshire Times. (TV: The Temptation of Sarah Jane Smith)

Sarah Jane Smith was born in Foxgrove in May 1951. Her parents, Barbara and Eddie Smith voluntarilly allowed themselves to be killed in a automotive collision in Hertfordshire, on the outskirts of Foxgrove, on 18 August 1951 in order to correct the timeline and save the Earth from the Trickster. The infant Sarah Jane departed the county at that time. (TV: The Temptation of Sarah Jane Smith)

Foxgrove was razed for the construction of the A7665 in 1964. (TV: The Temptation of Sarah Jane Smith)

When Reegan's men died from exposure to radioactive aliens, he disposed of their bodies in a gravel pit in Hertfordshire. (TV: The Ambassadors of Death)

By the 21st century, the portion of the former site of Foxgrove that was not then forming the A7665 was a housing area incorporated into the Broden New Town. (TV: The Temptation of Sarah Jane Smith)

Behind the scenes Edit

Actors Peter Copley, Bernard Horsfall and Neil Wilson were all born in Hertfordshire.

The production of the Seventh Doctor serial, The Greatest Show in the Galaxy, had to be filmed in the car park of the Clarendon Road studios of BBC Elstree in Borehamwood, when the discovery of asbestos in BBC Television Centre scuttled the story's studio time.[1]

Five years later, the EastEnders scenes of the thirtieth anniversary special, Dimensions in Time, were filmed on Clarendon Road studios' Albert Square exterior set.
