* Inverted by Chris Cwej in the ''Literature/DoctorWhoNewAdventures'' novels. His surname should be pronounced "Shvay", but because everyone pronounces it "Kwedge" he's decided to go along with it. In his first appearance, although his new partner Roz Forrester pronounces it ''correctly'', he corrects her.
