Bottled milk ready for delivery. (TV: The Stolen Earth)

Milk was a liquid secreted by mammals to feed their young. Different species could usually consume the milk of other species, as humans and Time Lords commonly did with the milk of cows. (TV: Hide) It was often used as an accompaniment to tea. (PROSE: Fungus) The Ninth Doctor once implied that there was something unique in the universe about the milk that came from cattle, and that he regularly had to return to Earth just to get milk. (TV: The Empty Child) The Tenth Doctor later told Martha that he normally went to a farm in 9th century France for his milk. (COMIC: Wrath of the Warrior)

Milk-producing species[]

Whether the female of a species exuded milk from its nipples or from simple ducts to nurture its young was one of the defining traits of mammals. (PROSE: The Year of Intelligent Tigers) Similar nourishing substances were produced by non-mammalian species. Malmooth could drink their own internal milk, (TV: Utopia) while the green milk produced by Skarasens was fed on by the Zygons. (PROSE: Sting of the Zygons, PROSE: The Bodysnatchers)

The only known cure for spectrox toxaemia was the milk from a queen bat, a species native to Androzani Minor. The cure was discovered by Professor Jackij. (TV:The Caves of Androzani)

Milk as a beverage[]

Milk was also used by other species as a drink. The humans of Earth harvested and drank the milk of cows. Milk was sold in cartons or glass bottles, and delivered by milkmen. (TV: The Stolen Earth, Hide) In some locations, such as the planet Sto, milk was sold in a milk market. (TV: Voyage of the Damned)

Milk was often used in tea and coffee to add taste. It was sometimes drunk warm as a sleep aid. (PROSE: Theatre of War, TV: Invasion of the Dinosaurs)

Like humans, cats often drank milk. One one occasion, this made the cats of the United Kingdom vulnerable to alien attack. When a fungus from space found its way into Britain's milk supply, cats all over the country turned on their owners in a series of savage attacks. (PROSE: Fungus)

The Doctor[]

The Fifth Doctor, with the use of a half empty tank of oxygen, had to climb into the caves on Androzani Minor to obtain some bat's milk to cure himself and Peri. The milk was a cure for spectrox toxaemia. Sadly, the Doctor only managed to milk enough for Peri. As Peri came round the Doctor was in the late stages of the disease and he regenerated into his sixth incarnation to cure himself. (TV: The Caves of Androzani)

The Seventh Doctor, in 1963 brought freshly delivered milk to Martin when he visited the Hand of Omega at the Funeral Directors. (Remembrance of the Daleks)

Milk as an ingredient[]

This section needs a cleanup.

Do any of these stories SAY for instance that cheese and custard are derived from milk?

Milk was also the base ingredient for many foods, known as dairy foods. The Tenth Doctor showed a great fondness for most foodstuffs made from milk, keeping track of which galaxies had the best milkshakes and most expensive ice cream. (COMIC: Agent Provocateur, Escape to Penhaxico)

The Eleventh Doctor claimed to have a doctorate in cheese making. (TV: The God Complex)
