From TARDIS Index File, the free Doctor Who reference.

England was a geographical region of Earth in the country of United Kingdom. It was frequently visited by the Doctor, who had adopted much of its customs, dress, and other cultural elements. The capital of England was London.


The term 'English' can be used to describe the common language shared as primary language between the United Kingdom United States of America and Australia and spoken by much of the world, it being said, especially in the early 21st century for the Eurozone to know English, than teach the world other languages. (EDA: Trading Futures)

English can also be used to refer to people, products or objects from England. the Doctor told Ian Chesterton and Barbara Wright that the eggs and bacon provided by the TARDIS' food machine contained 'English bacon'. (DW: An Unearthly Child)

In order to "reach out" to younger viewers of Star Trek, Gene Roddenberry originally wanted the second season navigator to be from this country. Because of the success of televison's "The Monkees" (an American-ized version of The Beatles), with a British lead singer, Davy Jones. Roddenberry read an article of Russian newspaper Pravda, which criticized his series for not including an officer from the Soviet Union-the country credited by many for the Space Age. This was how Pavel Chekov was written.

From The Vault

The Union Flag

The United Kingdom (possibly the British Commonwealth) is the only confirmed member of the European Commonwealth.

In real life, the United Kingdom is a Kingdom made up of the four countries of England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland.

An island nation in Europe far to the east of the core region/known world for the Fallout series. Before the Great War it was a wealthy country and most likely a nuclear power like its real world counterpart. It was the leader of the states in both the normal Commonwealth and European Commonwealth. Allistair Tenpenny is known to have come from the United Kingdom before traveling across the Atlantic. No details are known about the state of the British Isles after the Great War. The ghoul Desmond Lockheart also originated from England and was stranded in America when the bombs fell in 2077.

There are some historical references to the United Kingdom in Fallout 3. The Declaration of Independence can be found which historically marked America's independence from the British. The Magna Carta, an important document written in England in medieval times, can also be found. Scotch also originates in the United Kingdom.

Official statements

  • "Allistair Tenpenny came to the Capital Wasteland from Great Britain to seek his fortune, so that alone tells you that the U.K. was also hit in the war. And if he came to U.S. to succeed, that says a lot about how screwed up Europe must be. So we just allude, a little bit, to the state of the rest of the world. We like to leave a lot to the players' imaginations, and somebody like Tenpenny serves as a catalyst for those thoughts." - Emil Pagliarulo[1]

Series Known As

In the United Kingdom, Lost Seasons 1 and 2 were broadcast on Channel 4 and S4/C. Lost moved to Sky1 in November 2006. Sky1 broadcast just 4 days after the original broadcast in America. Sky1 HD also simulcasts Lost at the same time, offering those with a HD subscription and equipment the chance to enjoy Lost in greater visual and audio quality.


Airing times

  • On-Demand: Virgin Media and BT Vision On Demand - Season 1-3. Sky Player - All seasons (Seasons 1-4 pay to rent).
  • Sky1 Specials: "Get...Lost" and "Lost...Uncovered". See main article.
  • The Lost Initiative Vodcast/Podcast: Released after the Sunday episode. See main article.

Season One


Dancing partners for the first season promo, directed by David LaChapelle

Channel 4 showed a memorable promotional video for Lost, which had the characters paired up as dancing partners. Foreshadowing is evident with details such as Boone and Claire dancing together (symbolizing life and death), Locke and Walt conducting, and other details such as Kate swapping between Jack and Sawyer as her dance partner. The trailer was directed (and presumably written) by David LaChapelle for Channel 4, and was one of the only promotional trailers to be specifically shot with the cast (as opposed to simply using Pilot episode clips).

The promotional exists in two versions. The original was longer and was soundtracked with the song "Numb" by Portishead (opening lyrics: "I'm ever so lost, I can't find my way"), the other was cut down and edited to fit both background music and voice-overs from the cast:

  • The Final Promotional

All of us have a secret,

One of us is a hero,

One of us is a fraud,

One of us is a junkie,

One of us is a cop,

One of us is a saint,

One of us is a sinner,

One of us is a martyr,

One of us is a murderer,

All of us are guilty,

All of us are lost.


The first season of Lost began 10th August 2005 and was broadcast every Wednesday on Channel 4. The next episode was usually broadcast on sister station E4 straight after, except for finales, which were exclusively on Channel 4. The premiere of each of the first two seasons were also exclusively broadcast on Channel 4. The finale aired exclusively on Channel 4 as a double bill.


In the buildup to the airing of season 2, Channel 4 made the entire first season available for rental-download through their website for 99p per episode. The video files were only available to UK users and expired 24 hours after download.

Season Two

Channel 4 - the former UK broadcaster of LOST, during Seasons 1 and 2


The televised adverts for Season Two were met with anger from numerous fans; as they often involved what many defined as "major spoilers" regarding upcoming episodes. This happened on a number of occasions. During commercials on 6th June 2006 episode "The 23rd Psalm" Channel 4 aired a promotional trailer for Lost, showing the elusive scene of Eko staring down the "Monster". While it can be argued that fans did not know what these things were, they were still spoiling future episodes, outcomes, and character deaths. Channel 4 actually received registered complaints from these spoiler based adverts, and in response started to show less trailers for the show. However, as the finale drew near, another trailer was released again showing potential spoilers (such as revealing that Desmond was in the episode, and the system failure sounds).


Due to the overwhelming success of Season One, Channel 4 decided to air Season Two earlier than planned; just a few months after Season One ended. It moved from Wednesdays to Tuesdays, and the following episode was aired straight after on E4.

Channel 4 publicly released that they would follow up with Season 2 sooner than planned in their advertising, which stated:

This is a Public Service Announcement. On behalf of Channel 4, we can only apologize for the outcome of Lost series one. If there was a metaphor for how we all felt at the end... this shaft pretty much sums it up. Why? Well, because we like you we've put the hours in. We want answers too. Who are the Others? Will Jack and Kate ever get it on? Does anybody care about the polar bears? Well enough is enough! We've brought series two forward because, like you, we want to know what the hell is going on! (Begin flashes of the Hatch Clock, the attack of the tailies on the raft survivors, Desmond holding Locke at gun point, the "Quarantine" message, Kate going down the shaft, and the super bright light flicking on.)

Season Three

A Sky1 promo image for Season 3

In October 2006, Satellite Broadcaster Sky announced that they had acquired the rights to show seasons three and four of Lost, for reportedly £700,000 per episode (nearly $1,500,000). They also announced they would start showing episodes starting in November, and would be airing episodes within a week of them being shown on ABC in the United States once the second block of episodes began to air.

In February 2007, it was announced that Virgin Media (the UK cable provider) would no longer be providing Sky1 as part of its suite of channels, leaving Sky as the only option for watching LOST in the UK [1].

Lost is also available for purchase on Sky's PC video on demand service, Sky Player, and is also occasionally available on Sky Anytime TV, Sky's psuedo video on demand service for Sky+ version 3, and Sky+ HD customers.[2].


Sky promoted Lost with television commercials as well as billboard campaigns, which simply state "FOUND on Sky One" over the misty background associated with the American advertising campaign. Newer billboards stated "LOST NOW FOUND" with a tag line "This November on Sky One". The new campaign being the largest advertising campaign since the original Season One David LaChapelle promotions. Trailers do not air frequently however, and are rarely trailers for the next episode after an airing. Sky mostly airs 'Previously On Lost' trailers throughout the week across it's wide range of channels, keeping viewers up to date.

  • Promo #2 on YouTube
  • Promo #3 on YouTube

Season Four

Sky's Season 4 promo: "Answers are coming (Unless you have Virgin Media or Freeview) -- Brand new Lost Series 4 only on Sky One.
Join now 08702 42 42 42 or visit sky.com/join"

Lost Season 4 began airing on Sky1 on Sunday, February 3, 2008 at 9pm. The tagline for the station's trailers is "Some will be Saved".

To accompany the return Sky launched an "Ultimate Viewing Experience" for Lost, which included the first two episodes of Season 4 being available on Sky Anytime for HD customers on the box, and on the Sky Anytime Mobile and Sky Player for PC for all customers, the day before it was aired on SkyOne.


As part of the promotion of Season 4 of Lost. Sky launched Wehavetogoback.com which is an 8 minute 15 second video explaining Lost so far.

Season Five

Season Five began broadcasting in the UK on the 25th of January, 2009. As with season 4, Sky1 broadcasted episodes 4 days after the US showing. Sky1 broadcasted the Season Finale on 17th May, 2009.

Prior to the new season, Sky1 ran the following promotional trails:

  • Clips from the season 4 finale are shown before clips from season 5 are shown with the following on screen captions: "Those who escaped... Will risk everything... To return... The end... is beginnning"
  • Hurley is seen sat in front of the numbers, on screen text has "The answers are in a number". The camera cuts to a close up of Hurley with "34" on screen, before a further caption of "34 episodes left". This is followed by short clips from the new season and the text "The end... is beginning".
  • The final trail broadcast in the week before the start of season 5 uses the same "34 episodes left" on screen text as the Hurley promo but instead depicts Locke playing chess against himself.

Due to the renegotiation of Sky Basic channels onto the Virgin Media platform, the only major TV provider in the UK not have access to Lost will be Freeview (the UK Digital Terrestrial provider).

Season Six

Season Six began airing in a new timeslot on Friday, February 5, 2010.[3] The new broadcasting day moved new episodes just 3 days behind the US airdate. Sky1 started airing promos for the new season since November.

Consequences of broadcasting move

The change from Channel 4 to Sky means an end to all Channel 4 involvement in Lost, including the blog, and podcast which accompanied the show. Sky have taken over the podcast from Channel 4, using the same production team to create it, including the main presenting talent Iain Lee. The podcast has since become an exclusive video show to the Sky1 website. Sky1 is a subscription channel, so a further fee is required to watch the show on Sky1.

Sky also broadcasts via mobile, on Vodafone's Live! service. Channel 4 showed short, 3-5 min clips of previous/upcoming episodes on their mobile channel, but nothing more.


As of August 29, 2007 iTunes has made episodes of television programmes available from it's UK Store. This inludes all of the episodes of Lost from season 1 to season 4 and new season 5 episodes are uploaded the day after their UK airdate. Season 5 will also be in HD, for the first time for Lost on UK iTunes. The episodes are priced at £1.89 each or £2.49 each in HD.

Channel 4 started to produce half-hour long weekly podcasts starring comedian and TV presenter Iain Lee and a few other fans of the series, and hosted them at Channel4Radio.com. Sky picked up the podcast and it's still has Iain Lee as its host but has been renamed "The Lost Initiative." The feed address is

The podcasts usually start with a brief synopsis (read by Iain Lee) of the episode that has just aired. He and a number of other people will then discuss the episode, and then read, discuss, and rate some submitted fan theories.

Video podcast

Sky have also launched a iPod compatible video podcast, named Lost Moments. The video podcast primarily broadcasts the sneak previews of the same name that have been airing in the advert breaks of Day Break and Grey's Anatomy in the USA during the Season 3 hiatus. The feed address is

From Teletraan I: The Transformers Wiki

The United Kingdom (also Region 2) is a strange, possibly allegorical, land where pants are called trousers, underwear are called pants, women run the government, Batman kidnaps children, state-sponsored media is popular instead of elitist, vinegar is a condiment, and they have good rock and roll.

Also, they spell words differently and their bizarro-DVDs won't play in normal DVD players. Spooky.



Marvel Generation One comics

Note: Events from the UK-only comic stories are in italics.

Some time in the past, the Man of Iron and his Navigator came to Earth while searching for the Ark and left their ship beneath the area that would one day become Stansham. There they remained, though the Man of Iron would occasionally leave the ship to visit the surface. In 1017, he encountered humans, including Godwin the Strongarm and Aethelric, and a further two sightings were recorded.

In 1984, a beacon from the ship attracted the attention of the Earthbound Autobots, and they took a shuttle to the United Kingdom to investigate. Upon arrival, Jazz kidnapped a human named Sammy Harker to provide the Autobots with intelligence about the local area, but they were attacked by the Decepticons, who had also followed the beacon to its source.

As battle raged above Stansham Castle, the Man of Iron emerged from his ship once more, only to be blown up by Thundercracker. Jazz destroyed the ship (inadvertently killing the Navigator), and the Transformers left the United Kingdom. Man of Iron!

About a year later, they would return, seeking the source of an energy transmission that caused aspects of their personalities to reverse. Tracing the signal to a secret research facility, Jazz and Starscream fought over Zeke Heilmann, a human who was stealing the core of PARD for his own nefarious purposes. In the ensuing battle, both Zeke and the device were destroyed by Jazz. To a Power Unknown!

In 1987, Grimlock, Blades, Centurion, and Action Force fought Megatron in London, or so they thought. Centurion and Megatron fell into the River Thames. Ancient Relics!

Richard Branson attempted to fish out the remains, only for Shockwave and the Seacons to swipe his catch. Salvage!

In 1990, Shockwave emerged from the sea off the coast of Blackpool, where he paused only to squash a tramp and his dog before leaving for New Jersey to spy on Scorponok. Dark Creation

Fleetway Generation 2 comics

In 1994, Bludgeon led his forces to attack London with the intention of attracting Optimus Prime. The damage to the city was severe; even the Houses of Parliament were bombed. Optimus defeated Bludgeon only to face a returned Megatron, who handed his skidplate to him. Before he could finish off his old adversary, Megatron was attacked by Bludgeon's troops, and Optimus was rescued by the Dinobots. The arrival of Jazz's group forced Megatron to escape with Starscream, and Prime declared victory, though he advocated that the Autobots vacate the area to escape any human retaliation.
