doctor universe

So I’ve listened to the Bernice Summerfield audio drama The Adventure of the Diogenes Damsel.

The nods to Faction Paradox are all well and good, but I’m surprised at how few people mention that it implies that Sapphire and Steel takes place in the Doctor Who universe.

(Specifically: Straxus’ line speculating that Bernice may be an agent of the Faction also speculates that she may be a “Transuranic”, a kind of temporal agent that is mentioned but never appears in Sapphire and Steel)
