Doctor Who Timeline: Debuts & Departures Timeline

I found myself getting curious about the various ages of different actors and creators involved with Doctor Who over the years, and so today we have a little timeline that tells us throughout the years of when people were born, when they debuted on the show, and when they died (for those no longer living).

Doctor Who: Arrangements for War [Big Finish]

Arrangements for War is the 57th release on Big Finish’s Doctor Who Main Range. It was written by Paul Sutton and came out in May 2004–less than a year before the show relaunched on TV. Even though these audios were released monthly, this one starring Colin Baker as the Sixth Doctor follows immediately not from the previous release (see here), but rather from Project: Lazarus, which was release #45 and which came out nearly a year earlier.

Doctor Who: The Wormery [Big Finish]

With Zagreus now behind us, I’m excited to see where Big Finish takes their monthly adventures of Doctor Who.  Or where they took them, anyway—this is all back from 2003!  In any case, the next cab off the rank is The Wormery, by Paul Magrs and Stephen Cole, featuring the Sixth Doctor as played by Colin Baker.

Doctor Who – Zagreus [Big Finish]

It’s taken me a while but I finally am getting back into some Big Finish listening. The presence of Christmas money hasn’t hurt, and my recent forays into podcasts and audio books have helped to inspire my interest in the medium again. So I decided to carry on my consumption of Big Finish’s main range of Doctor Who audios (it doesn’t hurt that they are really cheap), but I was almost put off by the next one on the list: Zagreus.

The Caves of Androzani [Classic Doctor Who]

Doctor Who has long been my favorite show, but in recent years rewatchings of old episodes have been few and far between.  Lately though I have been making my way through a lot of the classic stories–either ones I already owned or ones I bought for my birthday or Christmas–enjoying them with one or two of my nerdier daughters.

Doctor Who: A Baker’s Dozen (or a Dozen Bakers?)

Ever noticed there are a bunch of “Bakers” who have been important to Doctor Who over the years? I have, and it got me to wondering how many there were, or specifically if we could come up with a dozen of them. “A Dozen Bakers”, as it were.
