Oscar Wilde was a 19th century Irish writer of some renown.



During his days at the University of Oxford an alien spread a disease to him that turned him into a Vampire. Returning home to Dublin, he infected Florence Balcombe with the disease. Some twenty years later he was imprisoned in Reading Gaol where the prison doctor experimented on him. After the Doctor cured Wilde of his vampirism, he then left for Paris. (DWAM: Bat Attack!)

In Paris, he was met by Iris Wildthyme and the Doctor, in a previous incarnation. (EDA: The Scarlet Empress)
