The Atlantean Publishing Wiki

The United Nations Intelligence Taskforce (UNIT) is a fictional international military/defence organisation in the long-running BBC sci-fi series Doctor Who. They have put in an appearance in fan fiction within Atlantean publications; stories they appear in include:

A UNIT representative is amongst the delegates in The Testament of a Time Lord, receiving details of a future Trefoilan attack on Earth.


  • In the TV series' 21st-century revival, which post-dates the fiction above, the acronym has been retconned to derive from the rather lame Unified Intelligence Taskforce.
  • The group would have been the focus (along with The Doctor) of the Who-inspired anthology A Universal Tapestry: The UNIT Years, had this project not unfortunately been aborted prior to completion. Some stories, though, did surface in Monomyth.
