John Fitzgerald Kennedy, also known as "JFK", was the 35th President of the United States from 1961 until 1963. (PROSE: Tricky Dicky) Kennedy was involved in the Cuban Missile Crisis in October 1962. (PROSE: Heart of TARDIS)

History Edit

One of Kennedy's last acts was to order Moonbase Eisenhower to shoot down the US rocket Lincoln. (AUDIO: 1963: The Space Race)

Kennedy's presidency ended on 22 November 1963 when he was assassinated in Dallas, Texas. (TV: Silver Nemesis) It is suggested that he did not have to die as it was not a fixed point. (TV: Let's Kill Hitler)

John F Kennedy International Airport in New York City was named after him. (PROSE: Times Squared)

Wax replica Edit

In 1970, the Third Doctor and Liz Shaw visited Madame Tussauds' hall of world leaders in the course of their investigation into the Autons. Among the figures representing American presidents was one of Kennedy. He stood in front of George Washington and next to the then-current President, Richard Nixon. (TV: Spearhead from Space)

Other realities Edit

In the original timeline, Kennedy lived past 1963 and became a very inspirational figure of the 1960s. Enemy life-spores infected Kennedy during his second term in office and almost used the psychic energy surrounding him to rewrite Earth's history, but he died of a heart attack in 1967 before that could happen. An agent of the Great Houses erased this timeline by organising the Kennedy assassination. (PROSE: The Annotated Autopsy of Agent A)

In an alternate timeline caused by the Valeyard's use of the Dark Matrix, Kennedy was killed by zombies some time prior to 1963. (PROSE: Matrix)

In another alternate timeline, River Song used hallucinogenic lipstick on President Kennedy to help build Area 52. (TV: The Wedding of River Song)

In an alternate timeline envisioned by James Stevens, Kennedy survived his assassination while his wife died instead. His survival led to a nuclear war. (PROSE: Who Killed Kennedy)

Behind the scenes Edit

  • The Autons were the adversaries in both of the television stories in which President Kennedy's likeness was shown, either in a photograph or as a wax figure. (TV: Rose, Spearhead from Space)
  • Low television viewership of Doctor Who's very first episode, "An Unearthly Child", on Saturday 23 November 1963 partially resulted from Kennedy's assassination the day before and a power cut part of the country. This prompted the BBC to re-air the episode the following week on 30 November 1963.[1]
