Charles Dickens

Charles Dickens was encountered on Christmas 1869 in Cardiff by the Doctor and Rose Tyler during a period of personal despair. The Doctor revealed himself as major fan of Dickens' work.

He clashed with the Doctor on his lack of faith in the supernatural. By the end of the ordeal, Dickens emerges victorious, as the Doctor cannot explain Gweneth's actions after death.

The adventure Dickens experienced alongside the Doctor and Rose re-invigorated his sense of wonder and he resolved to re-tell the affair in the form of a new novel The Mystery of Edwin Drood, but the Doctor knew he would not live long enough to do so. When he did die, he did so a happier man. (DW: The Unquiet Dead)

Charles Dickens was a Human novelist who lived on Earth in the 19th century.

Some of Dickens' most famous works included A Christmas Carol, A Tale of Two Cities, and Bleak House. All of his books were typically morality tales featuring the great cruelty and foul conditions that Dickens identified in Victorian England. (ENT episode: "Cold Station 12", and TNG episode: "Devil's Due").

In 2371, Thomas Riker discussed the works of Dickens with the Romulan Saket while they were both prisoners in a Cardassian labor camp on Lazon II. Soon after, Riker found himself discussing Dickens with Captain Jean-Luc Picard (while posing as Commander William Riker). (TNG novel: Triangle: Imzadi II)
