    • Shakespeare: Sycorax. Nice word. I'll have that off you as well.

      Shakespeare used the name Sycorax in The Tempest, written c.1611, as the name of the African witch who ruled Prospero's island before him and who is the mother of Caliban. She is not seen in the play but mentioned heavily.

      The name was also used by Russell T. Davies for alien race the doctor met in 'The Christmas Invasion'.
