This page lists appearances of the Valeyard in the order in which he experienced them.

Limiting factors[]

Especially clear from The Sixth Doctor: The Last Adventure, the Valeyard's encounters with the Doctor are not necessarily in the same order as the Doctor experienced them, since all but one have featured the Sixth Doctor.

Some stories, like Millennial Rites, feature the Doctor confronting the mental representation of the Valeyard rather than the true one.
