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.


IndexTimey-wimey detector → Timeline - Wilfred Mott
Spoilers aren't cool here.
(Try The Howling, instead.)

This page lists appearances of Wilfred Mott 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.

Fan sources like the Doctor Who Reference Guide should not be used solely as a source or considered a "true" timeline for stories.

Note that Wilfred Mott's appearance in the television story Turn Left is in a parallel world and is therefore not included in this timeline.
