History: Guin was a historian who had worked at a museum for 25 years prior to joining the Doctor in his travels.

Comments: Created by Peter Anghilides

It has been suggested that this Guin will eventually meet and marry Arthur when her Doctor takes on the mantle of Merlin. On an interesting side note, there is another Gwen who accompanies an apocryphal incarnation of the Doctor, the Empress of Othernow version, introduced in 1994. This Gwen is a historian from the 21st century. Although I'm sure the two authors didn't plan the idea, other than possible age differences (and name spellings, which is minor), there would be no reason to consider this a different person. If we take it that the two Gwens are one and the same, then this would probably mark the Othernow Doctor as the incarnation prior to Muldwych, and Gwen/Guin as the companion who bridges the regeneration.
