By June 1816, Mary Shelley had a child (AUDIOThe Witch from the Well) named William. (TV: The Haunting of Villa Diodati)

Behind the scenes Edit

In the real world, Mary Shelley had several children by Percy Shelley, but only one survived past infancy:

  • Clara, born in February 1815, survived only eight days.
  • William, born in January 1816, lived for 3.5 years, to June 1819.
  • Clara Everina, born in September 1817, survived 1 year, to September 1818.
  • Percy Florence lived to the age of 70, but he was born in November 1819.

At the time Mary met the Eighth Doctor, William Shelley would have been her only child, born five months prior. William died three years later in Rome (on 7 June 1819), of either malaria, cholera or typhus. The Haunting of Villa Diodati later explicitly named this child William, and included an appearance by Mary's baby.
