Terminus from 1983 was set in outer space but its thematic and visual cues were Viking. like Fenric, the story’s structure and focus adapted from mythologies preoccupied with the end of time as the Fifth Doctor (Peter Davison) manages to avert the destruction of the universe. the script and the design intersect with Viking theme and nomenclature as the “Vanir,” a type of guardian at a space hospital in the future, take their name and the appearance of their armor from Viking sources. their giant dog, the Garm, is a further adaptation from Viking mythologies.
