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

This page lists appearances of the Ninth, Tenth, Eleventh, Twelfth, and Thirteenth Doctors from TV: The Curse of Fatal Death in the order in which they 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, much like its TV story counterparts that for each novel, comic story and audio series their published/numbered order is the order they occur in. This does not apply to short stories which are often ambiguous about their placement. There are also many gaps between stories.

Limiting factors[]

The Doctor as seen in TV: The Curse of Fatal Death has a linear timeline, as each incarnation after the Ninth regenerates in near-succession. Despite this "branch" of Doctors being distinct from the branches as seen onwards from NOTVALID: Scream of the Shalka and TV: Rose, it is established that this branch is one of several that came after Paul McGann's Eighth Doctor.
