A Doctor Who Timeline: Fifty Years at a Glance

Reading Time: 1 minuteIf you are excited about the Doctor Who: The Day of The Doctor 50th anniversary but need a bit of a refresher, CableTV.com is throwing you a timeline. The Doctor Who Timeline Infographic is an overview of The Doctor’s travels from his origin and early years, through the Tom Baker golden age, past the dark time of the forgettable Fox movie, and finally into the reboot and modern era and recently updated for the 12th Doctor and the mysterious “War Doctor.”

The timeline is broken down by terrestrial time since the beginning of the show (starting in 1963), adventure numbers (currently sitting at 238 individual adventures), and Doctors (12+1 although the 12th and the “War Doctor” don’t have any adventures yet). This is then used to show the companions assisting the Doctor and the major foes he has encountered and then finally major events.

This thing is chock full of great information, like the fact that the first Doctor faced the Daleks more times than any other Doctor, The Fourth Doctor was in more adventures, and (not surprisingly) female companions outnumber male companions by more than 2:1.

The chart is colorful and easy to follow, although the color choices are not always entirely consistent. Donna Noble’s line is purple in the time line, but her call-out is green.

Here’s hoping they print this as a full sized wall poster!
