Spoilers are precisely defined here. Rules vary by the story's medium. Info from television stories can't be added here until after the top or bottom of the hour, British time, closest to the end credits roll on BBC One. Therefore, fans in the Americas who are sensitive to spoilers should avoid Tardis on Sundays until they've seen the episode.

Spoilers aren't cool here.
(Try The Howling, instead.)

This page lists appearances of Adolf Hitler 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 that for each novel, comic or television series, their published, broadcast or numbered order is the order they occur in.


20 April 1889 - Adolf Hitler is born. "On April 20th Hitler celebrated his fifty-sixth birthday. This was the last day he saw the sunlight, the last day he left the Bunker alive." (PROSE: The Shadow in the Glass)
However, the new party ruined whatever hopes it might have had of lasting political success with a ludicrously inept and ill-timed attempt at a political coup in Munich in September 1923, which led eventually to the new-born party being banned.
'In years to come, things might be different. But right now, in 1936...'
'You can leave us now, Bormann,‟ said Hitler carelessly. 'Oh, and get them to send in some tea for us, will you? And some of those little cream cakes.'
JIM: Hang on! This is 1938. We're too early. We need to go later in his time stream.
RORY: Right. Putting Hitler in the cupboard. Cupboard, Hitler. Hitler, cupboard. Come on.
"We're going to a place codenamed Felsennest," said the Doctor. "On a particular night in May 1940."
Ace counted on her fingers. "That's what, about nine months after we left? Can you time things that close?"
"We're going to a place codenamed Felsennest," said the Doctor. "On a particular night in May 1940."
"Hitler took the phone, and managed a shaky version of his old commanding tone. 'This is the Fuehrer. Send this message to General Guderian immediately. There is to be no further advance on Dunkirk. No further advance.'"
'Why was it important that they be married? Why, back in August 1942, were both Hitler and Eva Braun having blood tests?'
'Well, I don't know,' said Spinney distantly, not reacting, 'Perhaps it went when the Germans raided the village in August 1944.'
'An excellent plan,' Hitler said as he closed the file. 'Oh and, by the way, about Major Schmidt - he prefers to be known simply as the Doctor.'
"If the distant clock was correct, if this was April 30th 1945, then Hitler - the real Adolf Hitler - would soon be saying his final farewells in the corridor outside his room."
