The answer is simple … Dene October, provides an in-depth discussion of the source material, and heavily references the travelogues of Marco Polo himself. Christian Cawley, Hero Collector

Marco Polo (Black Archive) by Dene October.
In the first episode the Doctor’s spaceship is abducted. ‘How does it move?’ its thief demands to know, mistaking the TARDIS for a caravan. ‘Through the air’, answers Ian. This conversation parallels the serial’s real-life transmission through the media of television, the magic doorway through which the audience steps into the future and past. OBVERSE BOOKS AMAZON UK
