Behind the scenes[]

Space Vegas[]

In NOTVALID: Bodyswap to the Proms, the mini-episode broadcast with Doctor Who at the Proms in 2013, the Eleventh Doctor claims he bought his Hyperscape Body Swap Ticket from a man from "Space Vegas". One of these tickets would later appear on Clara Oswald's wall in TV: Dark Water.

Though it's possible that a real world location doesn't exist in the same geographic space in the Doctor Who universe, such cases are few and far between. Thus, the map at right is probably a good indicator of the DWU location of Las Vegas.
