Doctor Who narrowboats

First I saw this unusually named boat:

Brigadier Lethbridge-Stewart appeared in many Doctor Who adventures.

And I hardly need say that the Tardis is the Doctor's bigger-inside-than-out time transport machine.

Both boats were on the Grand Union between Cosgrove and Stoke Bruerne.

I wonder what other Doctor Who boats are out there.

We've got one in Cambridge called Davros.

I don't think I've seen any Doctor Who themed boats, but I started a list of those linked to Tolkien. Maybe as interesting would be an ├╝ber-list of themes that boat-namers have tied into. I've seen some Harry Potters.
