The Times was a British newspaper. It was printed from the Victorian era through to the early 21st century and beyond.

In London during the 1890s, both the newly regenerated Twelfth Doctor and Clara Oswald were led to the Half-Face Man's base at Mancini's Family Restaurant through a hint amongst the advertisements in an issue of The Times newspaper that was left by someone they assumed to be intent on keeping the two of them together. This newspaper was delivered by Paternoster Gang butler, Strax, whose method of delivery differed from the norm in that he threw it through Madame Vastra's window, with the paper striking Clara in the face with enough force to knock her down.
