War (U), the Third Crusade (P), the French Wars of Religion (St. Bartholomew's Day Massacre) (W), the battle of
Culloden (FF), and World War II (in Northumberland) (7M). During the War Games, the alien War Lords used
stolen Time Lord technology to kidnap soldiers from various Earth Wars, including and prior to World War I.
Among these were soldiers from WWI, the American Civil War, the Mexican Rebellion and the Punic Wars (ZZ).
In Little Hodcombe, under the Malus' influence, Sir George Hutchinson reconstructed the events of the English Civil
War (6M). The Rani admitted that she had visited several of Earth's wars (including the Trojan War and the
American Civil War), making them worse by her draining of brain fluids (6X). Lastly, on an alternate Earth,
Morgaine had preserved the tenets of the war-like culture of King Arthur's times (7N). Also see WORLD WAR
I, II and III.
Future wars: The threat of World War III was averted several times by the Doctor (FFF, KKK, 4A). Future Earth wars included limited nuclear wars in the early 21st Century, which Salamander used to his own benefit (PP), and the 51st Century battle against Magnus Greel's Supreme Alliance (4S). Future wars against aliens included several Dalek Wars (K, V, KKK, SSS, etc.), Cyber Wars (DD, HH, VV, 4D, 6B, 6T, etc.), the Space War against the Draconians, which was secretly engineered by the Master and the Daleks (QQQ), and the war against Galaxy 5 (YYY). The inhabitants of Paradise Towers had left the place to take part in a war -- possibly the First Dalek War (7E). Also see INVASIONS.
Alien wars: Wars between aliens included: the so-called Thousand-Year War (or Neutronic Wars) between Thals and Kaleds, which resulted in the creation of the Daleks (4E, B).

Other wars between aliens included: that of the Menoptera against the Zarbi (N), the Drahvins against the Rills (T), The Xerons' rebellion against the Moroks (Q), the Sontaran-Rutan war (UUU, 4V), the war to the ultimate finish between Atrios and Zeos (5F), the war between Argolins and Foamasi (5N), the war between Karfelons and Bandrils (6Y) and the war of extermination led by the Bannermen against the Chimerons (7F). Xeriphas had been devastated in the crossfire of the war between Vardon and Kosnax (6C). The Kraals (4J), the Minyans (4Y) and the Zolfa-Thurans (5Q) are races who almost destroyed themselves in civil wars. The Minyans later developed the Pacifier to quell their aggressive instincts (4Y). The Graff Vynda-K was a warlike tyrant who was deposed by his people while he was off fighting in a war (5A).
Peace-loving cultures included: the Thals, which ultimately had to forego their pacifism in order to survive and defeat the Daleks (B), the Didonians (L), the Rills (T), the Dulcians, who were similarly forced to face the Dominators (TT), the Anethians (5L), the Kinda (5Y) and the Lakertyans (7D). War-loving cultures included the Daleks (q.v.), the Cybermen (q.v.), the Voord (E), the Moroks (Q), the Drahvins (T), the Martian Ice Warriors (q.v.), who eventually became more pacifist, the Dominators (TT), the Krotons (WW), the War Lords (ZZ), the Sea Devils (q.v.), the Sontarans (q.v.), the Zygons (4F), the Kraals (4J), the Vardans (4Z), the Movellans (5J), the Skonnans (5L), the Argolins (5N), the Gaztaks (5Q), the Terileptils (5X), the Kronteps (7B), and the Bannermen (7F).

WAR CHIEF Name given by the War Lords to the renegade Time Lord who brought them the secret of time travel (using inferior TARDISes known as SIDRATS) in exchange for power. During the War Games, he recognized the Second Doctor and asked him to join forces. His attempted betrayal was later exposed by the War Lords' Security Chief, whom he killed. After the Doctor called the Time Lords, he tried to escape, but was shot and presumably killed by one of the War Lord's men (ZZ).
WAR GAMES Vast operation launched by the alien War Lords and made possible by Time Lord technology stolen by the renegade known as War Chief. It involved kidnapping thousands of Earth soldiers from various wars prior to, and including, World War I. The soldiers were then subjected to hypnotic processing and told to carry on their wars on an artificial planet. The purpose of the War Games was for the War Lords to conquer the galaxy using the best army ever trained. Eventually, the War Games were discovered by the Second Doctor. With the help of Jamie, Zoe, Lt. Carstairs, Lady Jennifer Buckingham and other Resistance fighters, the Doctor defeated the War Lords. He then alerted the Time Lords, who put a final end to the War Games and returned every soldier to his proper place in time and space (ZZ).
WAR LORD Leader of the War Lords. With the help of Time Lord technology stolen by the renegade known as War Chief, he set up the War Games. He later had the War Chief killed, after he had been exposed as a traitor by the Security Chief. Captured by the Time Lords, he refused to acknowledge defeat.

WEATHER CONTROL Weather control on Earth was established by the first half of the 21st Century (circa 2050 AD). It was achieved by controlling the tides with the Gravitron, which was located at the Moonbase, and probably using the Suncatcher satellite designed by Salamander (PP). After the Moonbase proved vulnerable to a Cyberman attack (HH), the Weather Control systems were relocated on Earth. It was there that Weather Control was later used by the Second Doctor to destroy the Ice Warriors' "Seeds of Death" (XX).

WEED A form of intelligent sea weed, which fed on natural gas. It had already been spotted by 18th Century North Sea mariners. During its attack on the refinery and off-shore rigs of the Euro-Sea Gas Corporation, the Weed made a deadly use of its sting, foam and poison gas. It also evidenced the ability to take control of humans and turn them into weed-covered mind slaves (such as Mrrs. Oak & Quill and, later, refinery controller Robson). The Second Doctor eventually used the Weed's vulnerability to oxygen and certain types of sounds (such as Victoria Waterfield's high-pitched screams) to destroy it (RR).

WEISMULLER, JEROME P. He and Hawk were two U.S. secret agents.

WHITE GUARDIAN The White Guardian was a conceptual entity embodying Light and Order. He enlisted the help of the Fourth Doctor to gather the six segments of the Key to Time in order to restore the universal balance of the cosmos. He also warned the Doctor about the Black Guardian (5A). Eventually the Doctor succeeded, and assembled the Key, outwitting the Black Guardian and enabling the White Guardian to restore the balance (5F). Later, the White Guardian and the Black Guardian offered Enlightenment, symbolized by a crystal of unknown powers and great value, as the prize to the winner of a planet-spanning space race undertaken by the Eternals. The Black Guardian hoped that, with such a prize, the Eternals might wreak havoc throughout the Universe. Instead, the Fifth Doctor won the race but turned down Enlightenment. The White Guardian banished the Eternals and offered the Enlightenment crystal to Turlough. But Turlough refused, and threw the crystal at the Black Guardian, who vanished in a burst of flames. However, The White Guardian explained that the Black Guardian existed as long as he did, and would continue to exist until they were both no longer needed (6H).

WORLD ECOLOGY BUREAU The Yeti invasion of 1969 (QQ) was, with the possible exception of the Daleks' brief attack of 1963 (7H), the first credible instance of an alien enemy attempting to invade or destroy Earth. This convinced the powers-that-be of the necessity for an international, United Nations-backed entity to deal with such global threats. This led to the formation of several multinational organizations such as UNIT and the World Ecology Bureau, charged with protecting the planet's ecological balance. The head of WEB was Sir Colin Thackeray. WEB assisted the Fourth Doctor and UNIT in destroying the two Krynoid pods found by one of its Antarctica exploration teams (4L).
WORLD ENERGY CONFERENCE The Fourth International Energy congress took place at Stanbridge House. Broton used the shape of the Duke of Forgill to try to destroy it. It was saved by the Fourth Doctor (4F).
