** The tradition dates back to WorldWarII, during which the radio broadcast "Condition Red" was used to warn anyone with a radio that the sender had detected an imminent enemy attack, usually but not always by enemy aircraft. "Very Red" was also used a couple of times in the Pacific to describe very large attacks.

** Sure enough in "World Enough And Time", Missy hears a red alert klaxon and starts dancing to it. Mind you, that's likely because she's rather addicted to chaos.

The phrase "Red Alert" comes from the naval tradition of "General Quarters" ("Action Stations" if you're British), where a ship prepares for battle. Much of the procedures are the same. The alert is sounded by a drum or over an intercom. Off-duty sailors report to their stations, cannons are loaded, and the decks are cleared of non-essential items. On modern ships, lights flash, klaxons sound and all watertight doors are closed, thus if the ship is holed the leak is contained. '''BREET BREET''' Ah, great.. See SelfDemonstrating/RedAlert right away, the Wiki's gone on SelfDemonstratingArticle mode. '''BREET BREET GENERAL QUARTERS'''. Often accompanied with ThisIsNotADrill.
