The home planet of the Time Lords--and the eponymous Doctor himself--from the classic, long-running British science fiction show Doctor Who. From space, Gallifrey is seen as a yellow-orange planet. The Doctor's granddaughter Susan described her home world (not named as "Gallifrey" at the time) as having bright, silver-leafed trees and a burnt orange sky at night. It was destroyed--or placed in Time Lock--during the Last Great Time War by either the Eighth or Ninth Doctor sometime before he met Rose Tyler.
