A policeman was patrolling the Shoreditch area through Totter's Lane on a foggy night on 22 November 1963. (PROSE: Who Killed Kennedy) As he passed a junkyard, he shone his torch on its wooden gate, which read "I.M. Foreman — Scrap Merchant — Totters Lane". He paused for a moment, then moved on to continue his patrol.

The policeman did not notice nor bother about the humming sound coming from the Doctor's TARDIS that was hidden inside the junkyard. (TV: An Unearthly Child)

The policeman had stopped by before and had noticed the police box, and found it curious that such a thing should be in a junkyard — reasoning to himself that the box was there because it had worn out and had been sold for scrap. He had heard a rumour that police boxes were eventually going to be phased out altogether in favour of every constable having a personal walkie-talkie radio but personally didn't believe such a thing would ever happen. The policeman returned to the junkyard the next night to find the police box gone and ended up thinking he must have imagined it. (PROSE: Doctor Who and an Unearthly Child)
