Template:ForumheaderThis page lists appearances of the Eighth Doctor in the order in which he experienced them. This timeline is based upon observations of the Doctor Who universe and the events that occur during each of these stories. From these observations we have attempted to build a concise timeline. It is assumed, much like its TV story counterparts that for each novel or audio series their published/numbered order is the order they occur in. This does not apply to short stories which are often ambiguous about their placement. There are also many gaps between stories.
The layout of this timeline is in part based on the observations on Doctor Who Reference Guide and Doctor Who - The Complete Adventures, as well as Lance Parkin's AHistory and other sources that allow us to make observations, such as The Whoniverse, Doctor Who Reviews, The History of Doctor Who, The Discontinuity Guide, Clive Banks databanks, two Big Finish forums and the Divergent Universe forum. None of these sources should be used solely as a source or considered a "true" timeline for stories.
Limiting factors Edit
Sonic screwdriver Edit
Any story where the Doctor uses his silver Sonic Screwdriver must take place either between Doctor Who and The Flood, where it is destroyed, or after Natural Regression and before The Night of the Doctor if the story takes place during the Time War. Any story where the Doctor is using the wooden handled screwdriver must take place after The Flood and up to Natural Regression.
Split continuities Edit
Following the release of Doctor Who, both Doctor Who Magazine and BBC Eighth Doctor Adventures took to continuing the Eighth Doctor's adventures in 1997, to be joined by Big Finish Productions in 2001. Logically, each company storyline would follow one anther, or at least be contained separately. However, the BBC Eighth Doctor Adventures debut novel, The Eight Doctors, follows immediately on from the telemovie, while Doctor Who Magazine depicts a stable Eighth Doctor in fiction, even though he was advertised at the time as being newly regenerated. As such, it is easier to believe that, after the telemovie, BBC Eighth Doctor Adventures happened, followed by Doctor Who Magazine, and then continued with Big Finish Productions, who show the development of the Doctor that lead to The Night of the Doctor.
However, Radio Times published a comic mini-series before Doctor Who Magazine, and the Virgin New Adventures concluded with The Dying Days before The Eight Doctors was released, though both can be placed in a time-gap presented in Vampire Science.
Anything involving Gallifrey must take place either before PROSE: The Ancestor Cell (when Gallifrey is destroyed the first time related to the War), additionally anything involving Romana II, must take place before PROSE: The Shadows of Avalon (as this is the first novel to mention Romana's third incarnation).
Alternatively anything involving Gallifrey must take place after PROSE: The Gallifrey Chronicles, following this story the Doctor regains his memory (which he lost following events in The Ancestor Cell) and it is implied in the novel he goes on to restore Gallifrey.
