Lost and Founded was the fourteenth short story in the Short Trips anthology Short Trips: Christmas Around the World. It was written by Andrew Pidoux. It featured the Third Doctor and Jo Grant.


John is stranded on an island in the Bermuda Triangle. He often has hallucinations but they don't bother him and he is thankful for them.

The Doctor and Jo land on the island. Jo, wearing a bikini, plans to read and get some sun while the Doctor explores the island. John, watching them, thinks they are more hallucinations. He hides and watches them, appreciating that they are better than most of his hallucinations.

The Doctor finds a tree that has old seaweed hanging from some of the branches. Strangely, some sticks are at the top of the tree and appear to make a pentagram shape. Further along, he finds coconut halves seemingly laid out into a pattern. He brings Jo to see it, and she says it looks like an angel. They split up to see if they can find someone on the island, but John, still watching them, remains hidden from them.

As the Doctor and Jo leave, John, standing next to the TARDIS, thanks the Lord and Santa Claus for the hallucinations. He reaches out towards the TARDIS as it dematerialises.
