Robert Louis Stevenson was an author whose books were read by Richard Pollard. (AUDIO: The Fall of the House of Pollard)

When the Twelfth Doctor handed the psychic paper to Lord Provost John Smith in Edinburgh in 1645, he read that the Doctor was "Doctor Robert Louis Stevenson". (PROSE: Plague City).

In 1828, Doctor Robert Knox alluded to Stevenson's novel The Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde during a conversation with Evelyn Smythe. Given that Stevenson would not be born until the 1850s, the Sixth Doctor realised that he mentioned the novel as a test for Evelyn whom he correctly believed may be another time traveller. (AUDIO: Medicinal Purposes)

One of Stevenson's books was Kidnapped. The Second Doctor gave Eleanor Woods a copy. (PROSE: Visiting Hours)

Another of Stevenson's books was Treasure Island. The First Doctor exchanged Treasure Island for a copy of The Time Machine while visiting Professor Chronotis in Cambridge in 1958. (PROSE: Cambridge Previsited)

The Fourth Doctor remembered being friends with Stevenson, who often told him there usually needed to be an extremely pressing reason for someone to visit Arbroath. (PROSE: The Drosten's Curse)
