    Canon or not canon if you love 70s Doctor Who you will love this graphic novel

    The DWM strip was almost canon. The original ending to the final 8th Doctor strip shows the regeneration into the 9th Doctor.

    That would have scuppered the Day of the Doctor…!

    BBC never confirm what is canon and what is not as they don’t want to box themselves in. They control certain things via their licences (e.g. not allowed to kill off the Daleks), but besides that the whole canon question is usually left to fans to argue over.

      If it works with the series I like to think it’s canon. At least we that a few Big Finish audios that are canon

      Everything is simultaneously canon and non-canon. 🙂

      The BBC can never confirm its canon because their charter forbids them from paywalling content (bet the Star Trek fans wish they had that these days). Not having a canon policy gets them through the loophole.

    I know this is a dangerous question but are the DWM comics canon to the main series? This story along with others deserve to be canon.

      If you like it it’s canon. There are so many conflicting media now, TV, audio, novels, graphic stories and short stories that canon is for me no longer an issue.

      If you think it’s canon then it is.

      I believe that all DWM strips are canon, save for maybe a few of the earlier, more crazy ones. The 8th Doctor steps deserve to exist just as much as the audios, and their strips alongside New Who have been increasingly good, with standouts including Doorway to Hell and Hunters of the Burning Stone to name but a few. In the same way I also consider the Titan Strips canon – basically as much as can fit is canon to me!

      Canon is whatever you want it to be. No one can dictate this. It’s also down to cost. There would be a lot of people in dire straits if they bought everything! Don’t worry about canon and just enjoy.
