The Whoniverse is a Doctor Who reference website written by fans for fans. It focuses on the in-universe side of Doctor Who. If you want to know what's been going on behind the scenes, or what the latest rumours and spoilers are, then this is not the site for you.

If, however, you want to know about the fictional history of the Doctor Who Universe, or the Doctor himself. If you want to know how the books, audios, and comic strips fit together with the TV Series, or how Atlantis can have been destroyed in three completely different ways, this is the site for you. We provide several different sorts of guide.

Story Guides

We have two very different types of guide. The Newbies Guide is for people who are new to Doctor Who. Each entry provides a description of how the story you are watching, reading, or listening to fits into the wider picture of Doctor Who. It won't explain every continuity reference, but it will make sure that you are not confused by the story. The Discontinuity Guide is more in-depth, describing the continuity of a particular story in great detail. It's written in a slightly tongue-in-cheek style, so not all serious.


We present several different types of timeline. There's the History of the Whoniverse, which tells the story of the Doctor Who Universe in chronological order. There's the Doctor's Timeline, which lists stories (and a few other events in the Doctor's life) in the order they happened to him, with various notes to explain things. There's also the Doctor's Biography, which expands the timeline by actually describing events as they happened to the Doctor and his travelling companions. Finally, the UNIT Files are a conspiracy theorist's guide to certain organisations within the Doctor Who Universe. They are written from an in-universe perspective, and mostly consist of a big timeline of events told from that perspective, with added theorising.

Continuity Guides

The TARDIS Technical Index is a comprehensive guide to the Doctor's TARDIS, and to other TARDISes. We also have a few articles addressing major continuity issues.
