Newfoundland was an island in North America visited by the First Doctor and Viking Eric the Red

History Edit

In 1002, the Doctor's TARDIS landed in Greenland due to a leak in its plutonium battery. The nearest Plutonic ore was located within Newfoundland and Labrador.

The Doctor enlisted the aid of Viking Eric the Red to retrieve the Plutonium. Once the Doctor and Eric succeeded, they went off to what would eventually become Nova Scotia. (PROSE: Who Discovered America?)

Behind the scenes Edit

In the real world, Newfoundland was one of the earliest European colonial settlements in North America. Newfoundland would later become a colony of England and the United Kingdom, becoming a Dominion some time before the First World War. Newfoundland and Labrador eventually joined Canada, as a province, in 1949.

In TV: Smile, writer Frank Cottrell-Boyce named the Vardy after Newfoundland swarm robotics professor Andrew Vardy.[1]
