The Doctor - Time's Champion Era
following color code and terms are used:

(Including the Dimensions in Time, and Universal/BCC Telemovie, Scream of the Shalka)
information from the Novels
(Virgin, BCC, I Who (which isn't a novel but it's source material is))
information from The Infinity Doctors and some of Cold Fusion
(I put The Infinity Doctors as 8th Doctor sidetrip. I admit I could be wrong.)
information from version of Doctor Who that are deliberately created to be alternates from the TV Series
(The Unbound Series, Death Comes to Time (Zagreus strongly implies that DCTT is an alternate Gallifrey the Rassilon deliberatly negated))

? The event occurred approximately in this interval.
?? A pretty wild guess as to when this event took place.
Time's Champion, the new Doctor (Sylvester Mccoy)
done so much. Saved entire races whose names I can't even
why? Because of reasons. Because of principles. Truth, love, and
harmony. Peace and goodwill. The best of intentions. Whatever I've
done, I've done for these reasons. And there's been a price to pay.
Sacrifices. People close to me have died. Four of my companions,
hundreds of the universe's supporting cast. I could fill whole volumes
with their names. Bystanders who helped me, perhaps for just a moment
or two, and suffered for it. I've died myself, six times over. I have a
responsibility. To every one of them, the living as well as the dead."
- The Doctor
Season 24 probably occurs in this range.
(by the time of Revelation)
The Doctor dreams of an afterlife (not the Matrix) but doesn't know if it exists.
(Probably during season 24)
The Doctor makes the Galactic Record books when he plays the spoons for 67 hours straight.
Bang Bang a Boom: Mel reminds the Doctor that he has
been celibate for several centuries by this point. The Doctor has
always wanted to write a great galactic novel.
Dragonfire: Fenric lures the Doctor to Iceworld with a tracking
signal (this might be the temporal flicker in Sector 13 mentioned in
Time and the Rani). The Doctor finally stops avoiding his
Champion and hypnotizes Mel
into leaving with Glitz. Recognizing that Dorothy Gale
McShane (Ace) arrival by a time storm can't be and accident,
the Doctor allows her to travel with him. He doesn't tell her of
his suspicions this however and treats her like a normal
(the seventh Doctor)
The Doctor's conscience (and the personality of his 5th body) is restrained to prevent him from interfering with the actions the Doctor feels he must take to safeguard the Universe.
As Time's Champion the Doctor begins traveling back
in time to leave notes
for younger self and to arrange circumstance to benefit himself. He also begins making use of his
knowledge of his future gleaned from Trial of a Time Lord.
954-987 Season 25 probably occurs in this range.
Remembrance of the Daleks: The Daleks set ambush in I.M. Foreman's
Junkyard to obtain the Hand of Omega. Feeling guilty about failing to
prevent the Daleks from ever being created the Doctor sets a
trap to destroy them utterly. The Doctor believes he has destroyed
It is a crucial moment in the Doctor's
life. The Hand of Omega returns to
Gallifrey (it doesn't arrive
untill Romana is President). The
Doctor appears to be unconcerned about what the Time Lords might do
when they learned he destroyed Skaro. By this point the Daleks have named
the Doctor Ka
Faraq Gatri ("Bringer of Darkness" or "Nice guy -- if you're a biped"). The removal of
the Daleks as a
power should allowed new enemies to develop and threaten the Time Lords
- however the Daleks manage to
secretly save their world.
Nemesis: The Doctor relizes Fenric is manipulating him. The
Validium asks for its freedom but the Doctor thinks he might have need
of it in the future (during
the Time War??). He
relaunches the compleate Validium weapon
954-987 The Greatest Show in the Galaxy: The Doctor appears to be able to use his abbility to predict the way the universe will unfold to predict excatly when and where a medallion will be thrown through a dimensional portal. This is one of his more amazing demonstrations of this abbility.
Season 26 probably occurs in this range.
955-988 (1999 AD)
Battlefield: The Doctor meets and defeats Morgaine from the Side-Ways Dimension. He discovers that at least two future incarnations will become the Merlin of the Arthur legends. Given that both consume life energy the Destroyer might have been an alternate universe form of the Fendahl.
Ghost Light: The Doctor manufactures a new key
for the TARDIS. By this point the Doctor is no uncertain whether
all of his family is dead or alive. He finds this
The Curse of Fenric: The Doctor defeats Fenric (aka Hastur the Unspeakable).
NOTE: It would appear the something in the Time War alter history so that the Doctor never faces the Great Old One known as Fenric, since he claims in "The Satan Pit" not believe there was life before the Big Bang and Fenric is from before the Big Bang.
955-988 The Hollow Men: By this point the Doctor now has a notebook with lists of things to do in the future to make his past and present easier.
Survival: The Master is infected with
the Cheetah Virus. He also acquires a kitling named Shadow. This kitling
will stay bonded with him untill the TV Movie. By this point the Master's powers of
hypnotism are powerful enough that he can use those he has dominated a
puppet which he can see, hear, and speak through. He can even use
the victum to hypnotize others.
?? (Right after Survival)
Citadel of Dreams: By this point the Doctor only belives in magic on even numbered days.
time before Taking of Planet 5 / probably before Timewyrm Apocalypse)
A soldier offers some aliens The Secret of the Universe in exchange for a weapon. The aliens refused but the Doctor learned the Secret. The Secret of the Universe is partly a state of mind, an openness to reality. It involves the knowledge that the Universe is just a tiny drop in the Ur-Universe, which is inhabited by Swimmers.
956-989 The BBC 7th Past Doctor books probably occur in this range.
(before Genocide Machine)
Type 70 TARDISes are use. Type 70s are very well designed (with more capabilites and better telepathic circuits than the Type 40) and are still considered "new" at this point.
?? (probably before Prime Time)
Destiny of the Doctors: The master captures all the incarnations of the Doctor but they are freed by a telepathic extension of the Doctor's will named Grakk.
Machine: The Library of Kar-Charrat is destroyed by the Daleks.
Time Lords probably collect the some of the remains.
Prime Time: By this point the Cheetah virus has caused the Master such damage he has less then a year to
live. The Master’s TARDIS suffers extreme
the hands of the Zzinbriizi but the Doctor makes partial repairs.
Dust Breeding: The
Master tries to use the Warp Core to power his TARDIS and ends up
destroying his body Trakenite body.
|THE POST ANCESTOR
CELL TIMELINE (PACT)
A side effect of the Last Time War makes it very difficult to reseacher what events the Doctor actually experianced. According to the New Adventure Dead Romance all the Virgin New Adventures novels (and possibly the Missing Adventures Noves) occur inside I.M. Foreman's Universe in a Bottle. This Bottle is emptied into the Vortex during the Time War in the BBC novel The Ancestor Cell and contaminates the continuity of all the stories in the Classic Universe. This contamination creates the Post Ancestor Cell Timeline (PACT) - a hybrid timeline with events from both the Classic Timeline and the Foreman Timeline integrated together. This integration isn't entirely smooth and some events from both timelines have been affected. Some (Human Nature) appear to have been significantly changed. Others (including scenes from Mind of Evil and several scenes from The Five Doctors) appear not to have happened at all.
Basically any story (reguardless of presentation medium) that isn't from the 2005 TV series now appears to be a bit uncertain. However School Reunion strongly indicates that a majoriety of these stories survive in some form. The timelines on my site are show my best guess as to what the Post Ancestor Cell Timeline now looks like.
For what its worth here's a quick and dirty break down of how the two timelines might have looked before being merged.
Classic TV Series
BBC Past Doctors
BBC 8th Doctor adventures (but perhaps not in their current form)
New Adventures (except possibly "Dying Days")

Death that she will give the Master 10 years of freedom from her
influance and in return the Doctor will kill the Master at the end of

(a few months before Blood Heat / 3 years after Love
and War from Ace's POV)
Deceit: The Doctor visits Arcadia during a War with the Daleks. Either because of this incident or a later incident Arcadia will be considered to have been on of the front lines in the Time War. Ace rejoins the Doctor. By this point the Doctor beleives that the Master is still alive and that there was nothing he could to stop him from turning into a megalomaniac. By this point the TARDIS has re-grown a new Zero Room - which the Doctor jettisons into the Vortex to get rid of the computer AI Pool.

(right after she gets back from E-Space)
When Romana got back from E-Space She discovered that her body was degenerating. The Gallifreyan Medics can do nothing for her and tell her even regeneration was impossible. The reason for this is that her Second Incarnation is the 6th Segment of the Key to Time.

The Grandfather redefines the House of Paradox into the Faction Paradox and the Grandfather and his four lieutenants are exiled from Gallifrey. The High Council forbid any member of Faction Paradox from visiting Gallifrey. The four lieutenants probably had shadows with multiple weapons and shadow armor. Grandfather Paradox and his House Paradox spiritualists found a group of Time Lord voodoo cultists called the Faction Paradox. These spiritualist believe in the power of Biodata over the Laws of Time. They rally around symbols that go against Gallifreyan Culture. They glorify death and scientific paradoxes. They use stolen Time Lord technology to emulate TARDISes. They use biomass in their Shrines. The elders read The Book of Lies. They call Time Grandmother Time. Initiates have their Biodata rewritten by the Faction Virus so that they have a human-plus rating. Many Faction Paradox agents have no shadow. Faction Paradox’s attempts to change history are often designed to restructure the Web of Time – creating small-scale alterations to the work done by Rassilon. They could be trying to alter the biodata of the Time Lords making them “racially” similar to Faction Paradox. The Faction’s chief goal is to overturn the Laws of Time and rebel against and corrupt the Time Lords. The only way to do this would be to erase Gallifrey from history. Their official purpose in doing so is a shame of pseudo- religious mandates. There real reasons remain unknown.
(251 years after

The 101-Project begins: Research begins into creating a TARDIS that is capable of interacting on a verbal level with Time Lords. The designation of 101-Form was at the President's request. Its possible that the 101 refers to 101ita the Master's TARDIS.

I.M. Foreman creates a Universe-in-a-Bottle using energy from the Space-Time Vortex. She designs the ecosystems of the various planets but appears to have been inspired by the Classic Universe to a large degree. She also puts Father Kreiner in the Bottle’s Vortex. This Bottle Universe is (allegedly) the most valuable object in the Mutter’s Spiral. This Bottle Universe has Time Lords with godlike powers and a Doctor who is almost identical to the real Universe. The beings in the Bottle Universe create their own Bottle Universe. I.M. Foreman believes this goes on forever.
(3795 AD / a few days before Interference Part 3)
Two Time Lords from the High Council of Gallifrey visit I. M. Foreman and offer to purchase her Bottle Universe. They want to use it as a last ditch escape route for the coming War with the Enemy.
(3795 AD / "Mid-Adventure" from the Doctor's POV / Several
years after the Doctor’s TARDIS is
Interference / Toy Story: Suffering from amnesia from his recent memory wipe the Doctor meets with I.M. Forman on Formean’s World. The High Council of Gallifrey steals her Universe-in-a-Bottle. The sentient TARDIS, Lolita, asks the Doctor’s TARDIS to help her fulfill Mother (probably the Matrix)’s plans. She attemts to convince the Doctor's TARDIS to evolve into a Type 100 form Capsule. The Doctor’s TARDIS isn’t interested in Mother’s plans and is concerned for the fate of the Time Lords if her plans are carried out. The Doctor’s TARDIS refuses because she doesn’t like the plan and because she wants to be the mother of Compassion (aka the Type 102).
encounters the Enclave. Iris Wildthyme keeps the Doctor from
interfering with Dadalus’s plans. Iris promises him that its for
his own good and tells
him she’ll explain one day. The detonation of a bomb might have
fractured Dadulus’s Corridors so that a races all of the Universe were
drawn into a war with the Obverse.
A team of Patrexians on Gallifrey predict a new development in TARDISes. The Type 102 which will be the mother of the first Type 103 TARDIS. The Type 102 is a human from the Remote who had been fed enough signals from the Doctor’s Type 40 TARDIS that she became and entirely new type of TARDIS. She is capable of communicating directly with 3 dimensional beings (humans) as well as 5 dimensional beings (older TARDISes). The Type 103’s will be essential to Time Lords during the War with the Enemy.
1018 The Taking of Planet 5 : The Doctor meets Time Lords from his future and helps save the Universe. War TARDISes from the future call Compassion Shub Niggurth (this is the name of the Nestene Consciousness).
Avalon (from the Doctor's POV): The
last operational Type 40 Time Travel Capsule (the
Doctor’s TARDIS) appears to be destroyed. The Doctor gives UNIT
an official resignation letter - written in High Gallifreyan. Laura Tobin (Compassion) becomes the
first and only 102-Form TARDIS. Her
interior is only big enough to carry several thousand people and she
has total physical control over her passengers. She refers
only as Compassion from henceforth. Compassion, the Doctor and Fitz
flee the Time Lords who need Compassion as breeding stock for the
coming War. NOTE: This
event occurs later from Gallifrey's point of view.
The BBC novels produced in 2000
probably occur when
the Doctor is 1019?

(1898 AD / shortly
after the events of Storming of Avalon)
The Banquo Legacy (from the Doctor's POV): The Doctor is traped for a short time by Simpson's Atron Inhibitor. NOTE: This event occurs later from Gallifrey's point of view.
The Doctor is suffering from shock and an absence of memories. He is dropped off with the TARDIS on Earth in the year 1888 AD. Compassion and Nivet leave to explore the Multiverse.
The Burning: By this point the Doctor has lost all of his experiances and adventures from before his arrival in 1888 AD.

The Homeworld is designated Gallifrey VIII. A new Time Lord becomes the Head of the Presidency on the Homeworld. He has fair skin and large black mustache, and is known for his stoicism. Because their new President is an obstructionist, the High Council refuses to make any further preperations for the War.

the War / not during the 6th
Romana is elected Mistress of the Nine Gallifreys. Romana is elected President of the Gallifrey located in the Kasterborous Sector. At the time of Romana’s Election the roles of President and Chancellor are combined. Given that one of the major reasons of the Nine Homeworlds Project is to protect the original Gallifrey by providing potential decoy, it is unlikely that the Kasterborous Gallifrey is the original Gallifrey. Her sudden absence from the other Homeworlds is explained by a hasty resignation. On Romana keeps th fact that there are multiple Gallifrey's is kept secret from everyone except the High Council at this point.
(Matrix Date 6776.7 / probably
after Lungbarrow / weeks after Romana is elected
A new crystal containing entropic power is discovered on the oldest planet in the universe, Etra Prime. It becomes known as the Apocalypse Element and is capable of shredding the raw fabric of space-time in an unstopable reaction. As a result of this discovery, the planet Archetryx is host to a Time Treaty of twenty of the greatest powers in space-time. They include the Time Lords, the Virgoans, and the Monan Host, and the People. The Daleks are not invited. President Romana and a diplomatic party of 300 Time Lords represent Gallifrey. Shortly afterward everyone who arrived Etra Prime vanished into time and space, taking 500 people with it, including Romana.
The President temorarily resumes his position as the Lord President of Gallifrey.

of the War)
The Time Lords (from both Gallifrey and the Homeworld) construct many new (formerly illegal) weapons and Romana acquires weapons from many other races. These weapons are stockpiled in the Slaughterhouse.
The 8 Doctors (From Gallifrey's POV): Lady
President Flavia (from one of
the future Clone Gallifreys)
monitors the Doctor as he meets with each of his other
incarnations. Ryoth tries to kill the Doctor. A Committee
of Inquire is started by the Doctor during Trial of a Time Lord.
Flaivia has regenerated at least twice since the The Five
Doctors. Flaiva has had a long and sucessful presidency and
will continue to do so
(probably lasts over 200 years then).
(Before the War)
A renegade Time Lord (probably the Master) is captured by the Enemy after an extensive chase/battle. His captors are humanoid representatives of the Enemy and “the first, the many, and the indivisible.” He is given the time active drug Praxis during interrogation. While under its effect he witnesses several events including an alternative beginning of the War. The renegade found himself near a prominent chapterhouse in the mountains of Gallifrey. The Enemy disables the Time Lords with a telepathic attack against the Noosphere. All the chapterhouses in sight are destroyed by black fireballs (probably a supercharged chunks of the causal nexus [Web of Time??] itself). Several stolen TARDISes return to Gallifrey and explode. Cyborg human Ashla shock troops (created by the Blood Coteries of Siloportem) arrive through portholes in the sky. The troops self-destruct if captured. The Ashla capture a Loom and infect it – causing it to mutate. The Eye of Harmony is neutralized and the planet is devastated. These experiences are recorded in the Praxis Manuscript which eventually finds its way (via the human artist Diego Rivera in 1933 AD) into the hands of the Faction Paradox.
arrives on the Homeworld and kills three of the Chancellery guards and
confronts the President about
the Enemy. The Time Lords learn of
predictions of the Praxis Manuscript. It is the first detailed
prediction of War that they receive. The President refuses to believe him and forbids the
other Time Lords to discuss the possibility in public. The Master
might have given the High Council or the President a set of coordinates
of a barren zone of the formative continuum, 3,500 years after the big
bang, and claims this is where the Enemy lives. These coordinates
are outside the Noosphere of a TARDIS's capabilities.
(Matrix Date 6791 / 10 years before Lies)
Commander Hallan and the President (of Romana's Gallifrey) visit Devidia. This is Hallan's 42nd visit to the planet.
after Apocalypse Element)
The Time Lords create the Doomsday Probe, which can release 5 seconds of accelerated entropy - enough to devestate time through out an entire sector - killing all life. The Doomsday Probe probably used the Apocalypse.
(Matrix Date 6798.3)
Anti-Time is discovered. Romana authorizes mission beyond the Anti-Time Rift to investigate Zagreus using a Class 7c Super Orbital Time Station. This Station has the 8th Door to the Matrix. Its interior architecture can transcendentally reconfigure itself instantly to meet with the needs of its crew. This level of control is a new innovation. Another fairly new innovation it has is the ability to partially regenerate damaged systems and seal hull breaches.

Gaurd Commander Andredloomsagwinaechegesima (aka Andred, aka Andredosselis) learns that neo-conservatives (probably headed up by House Lineacrux) had developed a multistage plot to return Gallifrey to its isolationist policies. Andred tries to learn the identity of the neo-conservatives leaders. He arranges a meeting between himself and CIA Coordinator Narvin. Narvin relizes this is a deception and sends CIA Commander Torvald to kill Andred. A fire fight occurs and Torvald is killed while Andred is wounded. Andred deliberatly regenerates into Torvald so that he can infiltrate and influance the CIA (which he believes is involved with the conspiracy). Andred swaps Torvald's DE with his own. The genetic copy is such that Andred is now considered to be a member of the House of Deeptree instead of Redlooms. Fearing that Leela wouldn't understand Andred never tries to contact Leela. As far as Leela and Romana are concered he disappears and no trace of him can be found. By this point Leela cannot return to the Sevateam because she has become dependent on Gallifreyan Biofields to keep her from aging to death within a year.
(Matrix Date 6800.5 / right after regenerating)
Torvald (aka Andred) is promoted to the rank of Commander in the CIA.
(Matrix Date 6800.5 / Right

The death of Torvald triggers a failsafe program that causes several servitor robots to create the Free Time Movement and try to steal the Timonic Fusion Device from Gallifrey's Past. The Free Time Movement begins to form on Gryben. It will eventualy spread beyond that planet. Its this researcher's belief that Free Time (and perhapse Torvald himself) were working unknowning for the Daleks. Certainly the Free Time Movement develops a life of its own with mysterious employers providing funding and missions for its agents.

The Inquiry: There is an inquiry into the Lady President's actions in the Grybon affair. Inquisitor Prime Darkeltrcustastrit of the House of Jurisprudence (aka Darkel) serves as Inquisitor, and Lord Cheif Coordinator Narvin serves as Valyard. The data bomb placed in the Matrix by Braxiatal in an alternate timeline is triggered and (eventually) detonated. Romana makes a minor violation of the Protocals of Linearity to catch Braxiatel adding to his collection. President Romana and Cardianl Braxiatel violate the Protocals of Linearity and travel back in time to insure that the Timonic Fusion Device is never stolen by Torvald's servitor robots. They return to discover that the Timonic Fusion Device that was almost used on Grybon was a fake. The inquiry into the president's actions is dismised due to the threat being retro-actively annuled.
1080.8 (Matrix Date 6800.9 / after The Inquiry)
A Blind Eye (Romana's POV): Arkadian summons Romana and CIA agents and Torvald to a 20th century Earth to show her the actions of a younger Torvald in their relative past. This is a violation of the several Laws of Time including the first. Leela learns that Andred has been pretending to be Torvald and filled with anger at the betryal declares her husband "dead."

The Head of the Presidency leaves the Homeworld with another Time Lord and several guards on a five day mission to establish the Faraway Colony at the coordinates (probably) given by the Master as the home of the Enemy. The Master’s execution is scheduled in five days. Academician Umbaste serves as President in his absence.
1116 (5 days after the President leaves)
The Faraway Declaration occurs when the President's head materializes (to the sound of a Timeships dimensional stabilizer) with the message “We are not amused” in the head’s mouth. (Probably using Praxis) the head had been kept alive for the entire lifespan of the universe before being killed and returned to Gallifrey. The Time Lords formally acknowledge the Enemy as a rival power.

The Time Lords finally get over their shock about learning of the existence of the enemy.
the War begins)
The First Wave of the House Military is produced. It is made up of Time Lords and Gallifreyans, many of which had served in the Watch or the Chancellery Guard. The newly loomed were designed to be mass produced, disciplined, regimented, and uniform. Cousins of the minor Newblood House Xianthellipse warn against this uniformity.
(decades before the war / probably when the Daleks
invade / after the Faraway Declaration)
The House Military begins to form after several Houses argue that the Watch and the Chancellery Guard are an inadequate defense force. Under the guidance of the Master, the House Military takes the form of an intimate and exclusive group of the more aggressive and proactive Houses. It is organized into divisions based on time of creation rather then the specialty of skill or field of operation. Each generation is called a Wave. The events of the War are numbered by the number of the Wave involved in them. The House of Arpexia develops and produces most of the weaponry for the War.
|THE CITY OF THE
This box covers events that happened in the City of the Saved up untill it makes contact with Gallifrey.
907 (1 AF / After Event 2)
The City of the Saved exists. It can be accessed via the Uptime Gate. The City is a micro-universe within which all the humans (including post and pre humans) that have ever existed in any version of history have been recreated as Homo Imago using a combination of Biodata and Warp Matrix Engineering. The Homo Imago are biomemetic structurs comprised of the original human DNA, psychological makeup, physical tramas, and awareness of somatic processes. The Citiy's 10 to 38 power inhabitants live galaxy sized (1018 kilometres in diameter ) city within a state-of-grace where death, wounds, and pain is impossible. By this point Compassion V (the City of the Saved) is over 10 million years old. She might even be a few billion years old.
The Doctor starts over on counting his age - probably because his body had been completely recreated from scratch. He also claims that this is the year when he started traveling in time and space. The Doctor's referance to 900 years of time and space could refer to how long its been since he started traveling. Maybe he can't remeber how much time he's been on Gallifrey or doesn't feel he was really born untill he left Gallifrey. Since people age slower when on board the TARDIS this might also be his corrected age when all "of time and space" is taken into account. For the purposes of calculations on this page I'll be using the City of the Saved conclusion. From this point forward I will note the Doctor version of his age in partenthsesis along with the Doctor's actual age. 0 AF will be the baseline for dating the Doctor's age in the new series.
Inside the City of the Saved, House Halfling is established in the Godsdice District by a Time Lord/Human halfbreed known as Grandfather Halfling (almost certainly the Doctor). Its political goal is to ensure fair and equal treatment of the various halfbreeds of the City.
1007~ (100~ AF)
Inside the City of the Saved, Grandfather Halfling (probably the Doctor) befriends Amanda Legend Lefcourt.
Het Linc becomes the City of the Saved’s ambassador to Gallifrey.

The Adventuress of Henrietta Street: The Doctor writes a book titled The Ruminations of a Foreign Traveller in his Element that is published in 1783. The Doctor encounters the Babewyns which are ape like shadows of the Time Lords which live outside human understanding. The Doctor has the heart that connects him to Gallifrey removed from his chest thus severing his link with the (now non-existent) Prime Eye of Harmony. It appears that all the other surviving Time Lords also have their hearts removed (or re-anchored to the Clone Gallifreys). Sabbath has the Doctor's heart implanted inside himself. He makes Earth his new anchor point by marrying the human Scarlett. However later events will show that the single anchor point of one Time Lord isn't enough to protect the Web of Time from other time travellers.

Street but before Camera Obscura Sometime's Never)
Sabbath joins Faction Paradox
Het Linc convinces many Gallifreyans to defect to the City of the Saved. Unfortunately they are rejected by the City Council and forced to leave. It is possible they become the City’s Secret Architects. Het Linc’s position as ambassador is abolished.
(shortly before becoming the Celestis)
The CIA steal the technique of Memory Cloning from the enemy (this is probably the mind probing tech used on the Doctor in Resurrection of the Daleks).
days before the CIA becomes the Celestis)
The Academy that served as the primary recruiting source for the CIA withdraws from the Academic Roster.
1132 (19 years before the war)
Fearing destruction and erasure in the War, the Celestial Intervention Agency of the Homeworld, creates Mictlan, a cyst of galled space-time cut off from the Time Winds. It is constructed of Block Transfer Engines and Computational Matrices. Mictlan becomes a danger because it could attract the Swimmers to the Multiverse. Using the same technique as Grandfather Paradox the CIA erases itself from history and changes itself into conceptual thought patterns (using the Faction's Force Paradox technique) right before the war and escapes to Mictlan. It is possible that they enlisted the aid of one of the Godfather – Lieutenants of the House of Paradox. This removal also removes the Academy that had withdrawn a few days earlier. The non-CIA students and faculty are probably used by the Celestis to create the first conceptual entities. Once there they rename themselves the Celestial House or the Celestis and set up the Last Parliament. The Celestis views themselves as raw and terrible gods of war. The Celestis use their Mark of Indenture to recuit numerous lesser species to worship them. The Time Lords view the CIA as criminals and traitors. Investigator Four is one of the CIA agents who journey to Mictlan (he would have been killed otherwise). He takes it upon himself to keep an eye on the Celestis. The Celestis is split between supporting the Enemy and supporting the Time Lords. Time Lords who encounter the Celestis Investigators usually flee in terror or end up dead.
(19 years before
the start of the War)
The 101 Form is slowly programmed with biodata waldoes as it developed. This TARDIS is designed to be "sentient." it survived birth but was a screaming terrified ship that was completely beyond the Time Lords control. The 101-Form is regarded as the first Renegade TARDIS. Officialy it believed to have been destroyed but it might have been imprisoned or escaped. The 101-Form might be Lolita.

to become the new Lords of Time. The Doctor begins growing a new
(and thus a new connection to the Earth presumably).
1132? (based on Fitz's age)
Zero Time: Without the Prime Eye or Harmony the universe begins to generate alternate universes for different quantum uncertainties. The Vortex begins to collapse causing the Web of Time to fracture into numerous alternate universes - drastically reducing the total lifespan of the Universe. Several lifeforms that live in the Vortex (like the Wraiths) begin to die.
1132? Timeless: Temporal fallout
from the collapse of the 5th Dimension (the Vortex) begins to kill the
populations of the worlds it contaminates. The Doctor

timelines. The Doctor and Sabbath travel back to Event 0 using a
temporally active animal named Jamais. Sabbath

become linked with the Web of Time making every sentient a Human and
probably making every Human a

Voran becomes President of Gallifrey. The Doctor decides to leave Gallifrey.
| Note: The
probably occurs after the Doctor uses the Matrix to found New Gallifrey
on one of the Gallifrey Cloneworlds.
Explanation of criticsim for this placement:
* Hedin's death in Arc of Infinity is the only real contradiction with this placement. However according to Lance Parkin (author of TID) the Hedin seen in the novel is the son of another counciller who was also named Hedin. This is also hinted at in the book ("[Hedin] was an historian, a mainstay of the High Council, as his father had been before him" pg 27). And the comment (on pg 157) "A Hedin was still a Hedin" both support this idea.
*The Doctor is between 1011-1295
*Lance has indicated that TID does not, in his opinion, take place after "The Gallifrey Chronicles" but Lance has also stated that he intended fains fans should place the story where they feel it fits best - so this placement is consistent with authorial intention.
*Also Larna's appearance in "Unnatural History" might be out of sync. She is probalby taking a feild intership as part of her academy training (this would be before she met the Doctor). Larna certainly doesn't act like she knows him. On the other hand maybe the meeting IS out of sync. She might be working on repairing the Effect. The Doctor IS very reluctant to contact Joyce and Larna. He might relize that they're out of sync. Maybe Larn's lack of interest is because she realizes he's out of sync and is trying to avoid a paradox.

Lord President Umbaste of the Homeworld goes to the Eye of Harmony and opens his biodata to it in an attempt to gain a vision of the future. After a year in a fugue-state with his biodata disconnected from his body he awakes. All he would say after awakening was the word “One” again and again. After saying the word for several days he disintegrated himself.

Storm Warning: The TARDIS performs an Emergency Stop for the first time in centuries. The Doctor changes history (and violates several Laws of Time) by preventing the death of Charlotte Pollard on the R101 (this is probably a response to the decision he made in Interference). She becomes a Space-Time Breach that forms a conduit to Anti-Time. In an attempt to stablize reality from the chaos of Anti-Time, the Matrix is instructed to store the entire History of the Universe.
By this point in his life the Doctor prays to his God (or Gods) every day.
Seasons of Fear:
The Web of Time
is shattered allowing the Nimon to create an alternate version of
history where they assume the role of the Time Lords in the Universe.
The Doctor spends 3 weeks with the
Abbot of Falsecar. The Doctor
ensures that this version of history doesn't come to pass. The
temporal paradoxes created by the Doctor lead to the appearance of a
type of creature which takes the form of Charley Pollard.
(less than 10,000 years since TID, 30 years
after Umbaste becomes President)
The High Council erases all records of the Master’s time as a criminal (leaving very little of his history left). The Master replaces the current President on the Homeworld (aka Gallifrey VIII). He is inaugurated as Lord President of Gallifrey - War King of the Nine Gallifreys. The title of the Lord President of Gallifrey is changed to War King (or Queen). The Master/War King was alive during the Sontaran/Rutan negotiations. The President is male with white wispy hair and a beard. The War King considers himself to be very old and wears the body of an old man to remind himself and others of this. He wears black robes cut in the standard presidential manner. The only decoration he allows in his office is a disassembled Hyper-Message-Cube with serves as a connection to his past. He begins forming the House Military and continues the tradition of non-communication with the other 8 Homeworlds. The President of the Time Lords brings in many renegade Time Lords for his leadership. Two of these renegades teaches at the Academy. One is male and handles combat training, the other is female and handles studies in Atron energy (probably the Rani). The War King is popular with the troops because he keeps the War Council off their backs.

Zagreus: Rassilon keeps the Doctor alive and he and his TARDIS are contaminated by anti-time becoming Zagreus. Zagreus plans to destroy the web of time to make the (Multi?)universe fit with his view. Rassilon tries to make Zagreus Lord President of Gallifrey so that he can enter the sealed Divergence Universe and destroy them. The Doctor’s TARDIS discovers how to partially cure the contamination.

The Time Lords of one of the Gallifrey's don't believe they can defeat the enemy in the coming Time War. They also believe that the enemy is Time Lords going to totally recreate the Universe. The Time Lords (from the Foreman Universe) have spent years trying to learn how to enter the Sphinx Bottle Universe without letting it "leak." They discover that to enter the Sphinx Bottle they must use the rituals of the Sphinxes. They don't know all the rituals so they "cheat" a little using technology. This lets in all the beings that have been stranded in the Space-Time Vortex. The Time Lords send Chris Cwej into it to open a stable "door-way."

FOREMAN UNIVERSE IN A BOTTLE
The author's notes at the beginning of Dead Romance more or less state that all of the New Adventure (and presumably the Missing Adventure) series of adventures occur inside Foreman's Universe In a Bottle. If this is true it would explain why some of the Doctor's adventures seem changed in the new series. Foreman's Bottle is unfolded inside the Vortex and released into the Classic Timeline in The Ancestor Cell meaning that the continuity of both universe would mingle and merge together. This could result in the changing of several of the Doctor's stories and could explain the multiple versions of Human Nature and Blink. On version of the story would be the one that occured inside the Foreman Bottle and one would be the version that occured once the continuity merged.
This box will serve as a holding pen for events that are central to the novel Dead Romance. Also stories that could not have happend as described in the Classic Universe (due to new revelations for the TV series) will be stored in this box.

?? The Time Lords (From the BBC Universe) create the several TARDIS to use as tools to try to free the Fendal during the War with the Enemy. The surviving TARDISes become the the Sphinxs who a know as the Kings of Space. The Sphinxes absorb energy from other dimensions and excrete raw space-time. The Kings of Space are a male and female Sphinx who are the parents of all the others. One is black and one is white. Having no interest in the other Gods they set themselves up in an area of space on the opposite side of Mutter's Stellian Spiral from Sol III. This area is called Sphinx Space. They get a bunch of human worshippers to take care of their little Sphinxes.

Human Nature: The Doctor temporarily alters his biodata to become a

NOTE: This story is similar enough to the televised Human Nature novel that the two must be connected in some way. I postulate that this is the version of the story that occured before I.M. Foreman's Universe-in-a-Bottle was integrated with the Classic Timeline in "The Ancestor Cell." It is possible that the TARDIS had a hand in ensuring that Joan still ended up falling in love with the Doctor and Timothy was inspired by the Doctor.

Tears of the Oracle: Even with Time Lord technology the People have trouble developing feasible time travel. The God of the People believes that there is still an 87% chance that the People and the Time Lords will go to war and that Benny and Braziatel will play a vital role in the war with the “gods.” Because of the damage he suffered in the Bottle Universe, Chris is force regenerated.

Using their mathematical mass they can block off areas of space-time from entrance or exit by other time travelers. They are also capable of causing sever damage to the continuum but are primarily used as blockades. They have no ranged or precision weapons any sort. No known Human (or post human) weapon can destroy a War era TARDIS. These new TARDISes are equipped with Chaotic Limiters, which adjust the pilot's affect on time "by changing his reality quotient.” They are set for lower settings for scouting missions and higher settings for assaults. The Time Lords suspect that the Enemy is capable of much higher reality quotient settings then they are. The first Type 90s are deployed near (in a historical sense) the planet Dronid.
