Doctor Who is celebrating its 50th birthday this week, with an anniversary special that the ABC will broadcast live this Sunday. To celebrate, we’ve put every location in Australia mentioned in the TV series on an interactive Google Map.
References to places in Australia crop up throughout the series, from the recently-rediscovered The Enemy Of The World right through to the Matt Smith era. In putting together this list, we’ve relied heavily on the TARDIS Data Core wiki.
A note for pedants: we’re only counting references in the TV series proper, not the novels, comics or Big Finish audio plays, and we’re not looking at connections to Australia amongst the production crew (such as the composers for the original series, or the fact that actor Mark Strickson studied at the same university as me for a while). We’ve also ignored broad references to Australia that don’t specify a location.
Sydney and Brisbane both have multiple references, so you may want to zoom in.
