Doctor Who and the Royal Navy… what’s the connection?

What with all the hoopla surrounding the 50th anniversary of Doctor Who, it left me pondering what connections the Time Lord has to the Royal Navy.

  • Harry Sullivan, companion of the Fourth Doctor (7 stories, 26 espidoes), played by actor Ian Marter, is introduced as a Surgeon-Lieutenant seconded to UNIT from the Royal Navy. His photograph appears in the ‘Death of the Doctor’ episode of The Sarah Jane Adventures we learn that Harry continued his medical carrier and saved thousands of lives with vaccines that he developed.
