    Hi vouax.

    I assume you mean the Ninth Doctor’s appearance in ‘The Day of the Doctor’.

    I placed ‘The Day of the Doctor’ appearance after ‘The Parting of the Ways’ since I recognise that cameo moment of the Ninth Doctor from that story. But I see that eyespider have something on those lines you’ve suggested on placing the ‘Day of the Doctor’ appearance earlier rather than later.

    For the sake of argument, I’ll place ‘Day of the Doctor’ during ‘Rose’ for now as you suggest.

    Thanks.

    Tim. 🙂

    Hey, so I’ve been wondering for a while, where exactly are you getting the information of how some of the less obvious Doctor cameos from Name of the Doctor took place exactly? Or are they just temporary /guessed? Just curious.

      Hi Mikhael.

      Yeah some of the less obvious Doctor cameos like Nine and Ten are based on guesses and/or limited information I can find. Not exactly sure how I came to those placements. They don’t have to be permanent. Any suggestions to place them differently are welcome.

      Tim. 🙂
