Season Eleven

Full Biography: Season Eleven

The events of Interference are a change to the Doctor's timeline, which causes him to regenerate earlier than he would otherwise have been. These changes were negated in The Ancestor Cell. Therefore, stories that happened after that point presumably happened to both the Third Doctor and the Fourth Doctor.
