The Royal Hope Hospital was a hospital situated in the middle of London. As a medical student, Martha Jones was working there when she first met the Tenth Doctor. It was capable of holding at least a thousand patients.

History Edit

In 2005, whilst working as an agent for Torchwood One, Ianto Jones and his team discovered a matter transmission device at the hospital and returned it to the base at Canary Wharf. (AUDIO: New Girl)

The hospital housed a power generator in the basement. Medical students and porters frequently played cards against one another in a tiny basement side room. (PROSE: The Pirate Loop)

In 2008, the Tenth Doctor, masquerading as a patient, checked himself in Royal Hope to investigate a fugitive Plasmavore. The Judoon then "stole" the hospital and transported it to the Moon using a H₂O scoop. The Doctor and Martha teamed up for the first time to save the patients and medical staff before the Judoon had returned the hospital back to Earth.

"Harold Saxon" would exploit this event to prove to the British public that aliens represented a threat to Earth. (TV: Smith and Jones)

Donna's World Edit

In a parallel world in which the Tenth Doctor died, Sarah Jane Smith, Luke Smith, Maria Jackson and Clyde Langer conducted the investigation in place of the Doctor. With the hospital taken to the Moon, everyone in the building died of oxygen starvation, save a medical student named Oliver Morgenstern. Martha had given up her own life to save him. (TV: Turn Left)

Staff Edit

Staff at the hospital included B. Stoker, Martha Jones, Oliver Morgenstern, Julia Swales (TV: Smith and Jones) and Rachel. (PROSE: Made of Steel)

Patients Edit

Patients admitted were Florence Finnegan and "John Smith". (TV: Smith and Jones)
