Template:ForumheaderThis page lists appearances of Iris Wildthyme in the order in which she experienced them — at least, to the extent that such an idea can ever be considered meaningful. This timeline is based upon observations of the Paul Magrs 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, as a general rule, that for each book or audio their published/numbered order is the order they occur in. There are also many gaps between stories.

The layout of this timeline is in part based on the observations on The Chart of Autism and other sources that allow us to make observations. None of these sources should be used solely as a source or considered a "true" timeline for stories.

Limiting factors Edit

Not Panda Edit

While Panda officially joins Iris in AUDIO: Wildthyme at Large, he has often been seen accompanying her on previous occasions, because timelines are tangled wotsits and the past just isn't what it used to be.

Series basics Edit

Iris's stories can be roughly sorted by her most important incarnations.

  • Lesbian novelist
  • Brenda Soobie
  • Old Flames
  • "Barbarella"
  • Katy Manning

Timeline Edit

Lilith Edit

Iris still lives with the Clockworks, and hasn't met Panda yet.

Edith Stitwell Edit

A hand waved feebly, and Andrew saw there was a little old woman lying on the ground, wrapped in a cream-coloured shawl, her white upswept hair blending perfectly with the snow. She raised her head, revealing a wrinkled shrewish face with bright intelligent eyes.
"An old lady, with a long nose and a slightly drawn face."

An Iris who looks like a young Jane Fonda. Though she's apparently from the Katy Manning Iris's future.

Unplaced Edit

An Iris who looks like a young Jane Fonda. Though she's apparently from the Katy Manning Iris's future.
The Wor Iris — young, with perfect hair, and ridiculous affected Geordie accent. She insists that she no longer deserves the name Iris Wildthyme.
Iris is travelling with Panda, and aware of the Wor Iris's actions.
Iris is "all teeth and [blonde] curls."
Iris is travelling with Panda. She regenerated into a teenager months ago. She has frizzy blonde hair. She claims to be "five hundred and bloody three" years old. She has slightly lost her taste for gin.
Iris has an American accent, and a streak of crimson in her platinum hair.
Iris is attractive and has hair "so dark it felt like looking into a black hole."

"…Miss Iris Wildthyme. I thought then for a moment about that strange old woman – her neat, trim figure, her bobbed hair, so black as to be almost purple in the firelight and her dancing, probing green eyes."

Iris was a smoker. She abandoned the bus thirty years before settling in India. She regenerates into an Indian incarnation with an ouroboros bindi, who also smokes.

Iris looks like Beryl Reid.

Iris doesn't have her Katy Manning incarnation speech patterns. The previous story had Brenda Soobie, and the next two Iris's Barbarella and Katy Manning incarnations (respectively), so presumably this is her Old Flames body.
