According to Gallifrey Time War 2: Assassins, Irving Braxiatel messed with Ace’s timeline to cover his tracks after leaving her back on Earth and as a result her biodata which told the history of her timeline, was blurred and contradictory going all the way back to her departure from the Doctor. Thus it can be assumed that any discrepancies in the timeline and differing accounts of Ace’s departure can be attributed to Braxiatel's interference.

Is there a new color code for "Blu-Ray Advert?"

Kidding, of course. :) This is a very impressive list. Well done, sir, indeed!

Well I was thinking about doing a webcast colour code actually, which would probably work better as Ace Returns clearly isn’t TV.

And thanks, you can just look at the red bits. ;)

Hey, it's not that I don't think the other media have *value*, it's that I don't think it's essential to make them all fit in with the televised series.

I mean, endeavors like this timeline are awesome, no question. I just don't get annoyed if it all doesn't fit nicely.

And I don't think the TV show is under any obligation to be mindful of what the novels, comics or audios have done, especially in a series about time travel. :)

Well that’s why I’ve specifically left out the NA books and left in the Big Finish produced Adaptations and content set in that era. I keep trying to make sense of the books and Big Finish, but without serious timey wimey shenanigans or mind wipes, they just don’t work together very well at all. Little contradictions don’t hurt but these are completely character arcs running parallel and going in two separate directions, it’d silly to try and fudge them together.

Wait! ARE YOU SAYING THE NA'S ARE RUBBISH DOCTOR WHO????


(Kidding.)

Yeah, getting the NA's to fit would be batshit. There are so many different 7th Doctor "timelines" it's hard to keep track of them all, much less reconcile them.

I mean, doesn't even Death Comes to Time throw some weird wrench into continuity? I don't even remember.

The Time Lords are pretty much all wiped out by the time of Death Comes to Time and have weird OP mind powers, and the Doctor dies at the end.

Just thought I’d leave a note about why certain things have been placed where they are:

Short Trips
Basically for the ones that take place in Solo gaps or when the Doctor is travelling with a BF companion, I’ve just placed them in release order unless there’s something that places it elsewhere.

The New Adventures
I put them between the BF Seven/Ace/Hex/Mel and Mags/Klein/TV Movie Solo Stories, as basically there’s not really any reference to the NAs in the earlier stories, except an implication that they’re in the future in Signs and Wonders, while the NAs are referenced constantly in TV Movie era stories. It doesn’t really reconcile with the books at all without major mindwipes, but the BF adaptations work fine.

Raine Creevy
Usually these go right after Season 26 as they’re supposed to be the missing Season 27. I’m toying with the idea of putting them later after Ace’s mindwipe in The Prisoner's Dilemma so that the Doctor doesn’t randomly pick up Raine again right at the end of his life briefly after travelling with her briefly at the start of his life, this way her stints in the TARDIS happen a bit closer together. Not sure if I’ll stick with it though.

Mags
Yes, that Mags. I placed this year's trilogy of stories featuring her as the Doctor's companion between Ace's final departure, and the Nazi Klein trilogy. Basically because the Doctor says Ace is gone and has been for a while, but he still looks young on the covers and Mags seems to think he looks the same as he did in Greatest Show. He also decides that he’s getting old now, but not too old for new friends and adventures. So I reckon that once Ace is finally gone for good, there’s then a run of solo stories, and then his time with Mags is the beginning of the end of his life. Also the TARDIS turns from the TV one to the movie one in this trilogy, but that seems to happen in every McCoy era anyway.

Nazi Klein
The Doctor is on his own “for the while” and is tying up loose ends. It has to go after Colditz because of Klein's presence, but BF don’t really have a solo gap before Ace leaves anyway. He’s younger looking and in his NA linen suit and decides to take Klein on as his companion so he can keep an eye on her.

Ah. I knew there must have been a reason I blotted it from my mind.

Yeah Death Comes to Time was like basically a backdoor pilot to introduce Stephen Fry's character and the dude didn't even reprise his roll in the spin-off. BRAVO DCTT.
