This page lists appearances of w:c:tardis:Time Lords other than the Doctor and the Master (unless one of them is on official business) in chronological order. 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 as much as possible, but still with exceptions, that Time Lords meet in the same order. These cases will be noted. In many cases there are sequences of stories from different Time Lords' perspectives, where individual stories can not be compared.

Limiting factors Edit

Looms Edit

Any story where looms are the dominant method of reproduction on Gallifrey must take place before w:c:tardis:PROSE: Lungbarrow.

President Edit

Any story involving Romana as president must take place after w:c:tardis:PROSE: Happy Endings.

Series basics Edit

Time Lord stories can very roughly be sorted based on medium / series

  • Doctor Who stories set on Gallifrey
  • Doctor Who stories featuring individual Time Lords
  • Non-Doctor Who stories featuring individual Time Lords.
