Vengeance of the Stones Edit

Vengeance of the Stones was moved between Spearhead from Space and Doctor Who and the Silurians because "the Doctor says he has only had Bessie a short time" (even though the introduction of Yates and his promotion to captain and there being no Liz almost certainly places Vengeance between Inferno and Terror of the Autons). What time signature or chapter in Vengeance says this anyway? Because I can't find it. Also, the first episode of The Silurians pretty clearly states that that story is the first time the Doctor has got it working after getting the car, but that's neither here nor there. -- Tybort (talk page) 17:34, November 4, 2017 (UTC)

Hmm. If you can't find it, then we must be dealing with a mistake on someone's part. I trust your judgment more than anyone else's on this subject, so I'll leave it to you to find where best this takes place on the timeline page. Thank you, and apologies for any time wated on this.BananaClownMan 18:31, November 4, 2017 (UTC)
Someone's part? You wrote the edit. You're not supposed to use other people's writing about Doctor Who stories like fansites or reference guides to write articles. You're meant to use the stories themselves. See T:CITE DEF. And the timeline page and the Theory:Timey-wimey detector isn't an official authority on anything and is discouraged from being linked to on the mainspace. It's literally supposition. -- Tybort (talk page) 19:17, November 4, 2017 (UTC)
I think someone is trying to put together the different sources of information. There is also a confusion as in Call to Arms in that he spent most of his first year chasing up and down the UK looking for Silurian nests with Benton. There is also a Liz companion chronicle where she mentions Yates so there is some cross over. I'll see if I can find the reference. I've seen people put it before Silurians.

Ok the reference is in Shadow of the Past which is set between Silurians and Ambassadors. Adric♥NyssaTalk? 22:12, November 4, 2017 (UTC)
