Alternate realities[edit | edit source]

Tegan's altered timeline[edit | edit source]
In a subsequently erased timeline, Graham Dilley - an English cricketer - failed to catch a ball in the Third Test of the Ashes after being distracted by Tegan Jovanka, causing England to lose. This sparked civil unrest and an assassination attempt on the Queen. Events were later reverted by the Fifth Doctor, Peri Brown and Erimem. (PROSE: Graham Dilley Saves the World)

Mandip Gill was born in Leeds.
In the real world, Leeds is located in West Yorkshire.
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 Leeds.
