This page lists appearances of the Eleventh 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 that for each novel, comic, audio or television series, their published, broadcast or numbered order is the order they occur in.
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, Doc Oho's Book Reviews, The History of Doctor Who, The Discontinuity Guide, Clive Banks databanks, Whopix, and the Big Finish forums. None of these sources should be used solely as a source or considered a "true" timeline for stories.
Limiting factors Edit
Any story featuring Amy Pond must be after TV: The Eleventh Hour and before TV: The Time of Angels, or after TV: Cold Blood and before TV: The Pandorica Opens. Any story featuring Amy and Rory Williams as TARDIS residents must be after TV: The Vampires of Venice and before TV: The Hungry Earth, after TV: The Big Bang and before TV: The God Complex, or after TV: The Power of Three and before TV: The Angels Take Manhattan. Any story with Amy and Rory taking short trips and returning home must be after TV: The Doctor, the Widow and the Wardrobe and before TV: The Power of Three. Any story where Amy and Rory are married and Rory remembers being a Roman centurion can only be after TV: The Big Bang.
Any story featuring the Doctor by himself must be set before TV: The Impossible Astronaut, or set between TV: A Good Man Goes to War and TV: Let's Kill Hitler, or set between TV: The God Complex and TV: The Bells of Saint John.
By TV: The Snowmen, the Doctor has changed wardrobe, switching to a purple 18th-century costume. Any story where he is in this costume must be set after The Snowmen. At some point, he stopped wearing the 18th-century outfit and returned to his tweed jacket, as seen in WC: The Bells of Saint John. The one exception to this rule is COMIC: The Steampunk Conundrum as, while the Doctor is depicted wearing a purple coat, the story is explicitly established as being set between TV: A Christmas Carol and The Impossible Astronaut.
