Jodrell Bank is an observatory in England.

In 1963, the Seventh Doctor requested Jodrell Bank, Fylingdales and the Royal Observatory to search for transmissions used to beam Daleks down to Earth. (TV: Remembrance of the Daleks)

In 1986, Jodrell Bank detected the return of Mondas to the solar system. (TV: The Tenth Planet)

Jodrell Bank, along with New Mexico's Very Large Array, did not notice the "giant rock" Guinevere One came into contact with (actually the Sycorax's ship). (PROSE: The Christmas Invasion)

Captain Jack Harkness knew a man called Neil at Jodrell Bank, who apparently had a voice like Sean Connery (TV: Cyberwoman). When Gwen Cooper phoned Neil, she said "we're always after something, aren't we?", implying that Torchwood regularly used him as a contact.

Jodrell Bank traced the signal for ATMOS to a Sontaran spacecraft and provided a report to UNIT. (TV: The Poison Sky)

The Eleventh Doctor consulted experts from Jodrell Banks among others when the Atraxi threatened to destroy the Earth. (TV: The Eleventh Hour)

The Doctor and the Master had an altercation at Jodrell Bank Observatory. (TV: Spyfall)

Behind the scenes Edit

Jodrell Bank stood in for the Pharos Project for the serial Logopolis.

The Season 18 Blu-ray release features an updated model of the Lovell Telescope, along with other special effects upgrades. New footage taken at Jodrell Bank was used.
