Westminster Abbey was the venue for the recoronation of Elizabeth II, which was held in the morning of 23 November 1997 following the Martian Invasion of May that year. The event was attended by representatives of every nation on Earth, including heads of state and ambassadors. Sat behind them were senior military men and other heroes of the invasion, including General Alistair Gordon Lethbridge-Stewart, who attended with his wife Doris, and Brigadier Winifred Bambera. Despite his role in thwarting the invasion, the Eighth Doctor did not attend, however, as Alistair pointed out to Doris, the Doctor did attend in their fourth incarnation, accompanied by companions Romana II and K9 Mark II.
