Timelink: The Continuity of Doctor Who

Timelink: The Unofficial and Unauthorised Guide to the Continuity of Doctor Who
by Jon Preddle

An in-depth exploration of the complex continuity of the world’s longest running science fiction television programme, Doctor Who. Over fifteen years in the making, Timelink offers a different perspective on the history of the universe as told through the many adventures of the Doctor. Author Jon Preddle presents fresh theories and solutions to some of the many continuity anomalies and discrepancies in the series.


This is one book that no self-respecting fan of Doctor Who can be without. The analysis encompasses both the original series which ran from 1963 to 1989, the one-off Paul McGann TV Movie of 1996, the 2005 – 2008 Doctor Who revival helmed by Russell T Davies, as well as Torchwood and The Sarah Jane Adventures.

‘Preddle’s stamina, invention and clever observations have the grey matter firing – and somehow, he makes this beast readable… The author has spent a decade calculating the Doctor’s age, defining a Gallifreyan year and working out when Snakedancing was banned on Manussa – and the resultant work would take another ten years to fully absorb. Almost endless, Timelink is the answer to everything you never thought you wanted to know.’
