    Just a little question … you have “Catch A Falling Star” listed as Twelve’s Story but it’s a Ten story in the 2018 FCBD or is there another “Catch A Falling Star” that I don’t know of. Thanks for putting together an awesome compilation.

      Hi Daniel.

      Thanks for dropping a line.

      You are right of course. I’ve checked the tardis.wiki page for it and ‘Catch a Falling Star’ is listed as a Ten story rather than a Twelve story. I don’t know how I made that mistake there.

      Apparently according to tardis.wiki, the story is part of the ‘Doctor Who: Tenth Doctor’ comic series, but Ten only appeared in flashbacks. So I suppose it would’ve been easy for me to mistake it as a Twelve story instead of a Ten story.

      Thanks for pointing this out. Glad you enjoyed the timeline.

      Tim. 🙂

    I think The Instruments of War is set too early, there’s a reference to Clara carrying the Doctor in her handbag “last week”, which makes me think it’s set not long after Flatline. Other than that though, excellent timeline!
