Hitchemus was a planet which orbited the G-type star Chara. A day lasted for twenty-two hours with no more than six hours of darkness. It was seven-eighths ocean, and its sole landmass was Port Any. The nearest human colony to Hitchemus was Chi Bootis.
Behind the scenes
- Kate Orman's The Caterpillar Room, published in the Obverse Books charity anthology A Second Target for Tommy, features the Doctor, Fitz Kreiner, and Anji Kapoor returning to Hitchemus a century after the events of The Year of Intelligent Tigers. By this point, the humans and Hitchemus Tigers are in a truce while the rising oceans of the planet continue to threaten what little land remains.
- In Blair Bidmead's short story Grumpy Auld Men, published on his blog and featuring licensed use of Theo Possible, Theo had performed a set at a pub on Hitchemus. The Twelfth Doctor saw a flyposter for the set, but the date had passed.
