River Nile

The River Nile, also known as simply the Nile, was a river in Egypt.


As well as running through Egypt, the Nile ran through the Sudan. (AUDIO: The Destroyer of Delights)


In ancient Egypt, an escaped alien criminal planned to harness the Nile's kinetic energy to power a tachyon pulse inverter. Its activation would have ignited Earth's atmosphere and burned half of its surface. The alien's plot was thwarted when the Eleventh Doctor recaptured it. (COMIC: Assimilation²)

The Eighth Doctor travelled down the Nile with Ediphis. The Osiran, Thoueris, hid in the Nile. She could control the crocodiles there with a ring. (COMIC: The Power of Thoueris!)

The Sixth Doctor and Peri Brown saw Cleopatra's barge travel down the Nile. (PROSE: State of Change)

In the 9th century, the Black Guardian flew the Fifth Doctor and Amy over the Nile in the Sudan, while showing them the location of a segment of the Key to Time. (AUDIO: The Destroyer of Delights)

Prior to 1805, a battle was fought at the Nile in which the Indefatigable was lost. (PROSE: H.M.S. TARDIS)
