The Enemy Within (AKA Doctor Who: The Movie)


  • Despite the Forty-Five cover depicting the TV Movie Console Room, it may be possible that it was a Secondary Console Room much like the previous verson during the Doctor's 4th incarnation while the original white configuration was under going remodeling. 
  • Plus, in Black and White, the Doctor restored the TARDIS console room's original configuration at some point between A Death in the Family and that story in order to differentiate it from that of the black TARDIS, which had the TV movie console. It  would be around the events of Lungbarrow/ Excelis Decays and throughout his 8th incarnation that the Gothic configuration would be the official console room until the events of The Ancestor Cell; it was later restored sometime after the events of The Gallifrey Chronicles and sometime before Blood of the Daleks.
  • Birthright and Just War are omitted due in part to them serving as two out of the six NAs adapted for the Bernice Summerfield audios. 
  • Human Nature has a bit of a paradox in the wake of the televised adaptation featuring the 10th Doctor and then companion Martha Jones (albeit the TV version set in 1913 before the start of World War I). It may be likely that either a Multi Doctor event (akin to The Five Doctors) or the Time War undid the 7th & Benny version of the adventure.
  • If your wondering why UNIT: Dominion is after Excelis Decays and before Lungbarrow its due to the 7th Doctor's characterization. His mood still cheerful at the beginning of the 4-parter with Raine compared to the later adventures when he often offer the people he helped a trip only to end with them declining the offer. Further, Ace (and respectively Chris Cwej) was on Gallifrey when the Doctor left. 
  • The event of Bullet Time and the first Klien trilogy happened in concurrence with The Room With No Doors.
  • Eternity Weeps' story setting regarding Liz Shaw is pragmatic due to the fact that she was mentioned in The Sarah Jane Adventures episode Death of the Doctor indicating she was still alive in 2010 contradicting her fate in 2003 Earth. Thus extremely hard to reconsile.


  1. You've put UNIT Dominion after Lungbarrow, but say in the notes that it's before it. Not sure if that was an oversight...

    1. ,Or another goof. Remember, they slotted Find & Replace between Planet of the Daleks and the Green Death, yet the dialogue in the scene with Jo, Iris, Huxley and the 3rd Doctor heavily implied he was still in exile thus that scene in part two being circa Season 9.

      Just because the notes say when the story takes place don't always mean its the case.

  2. I never take their notes or forum comments at face value. Always got to be my own decision in the end. We often plump for different interpretations, but that's all for the better. Dissent is good. Keep up the good work.

  3. Where's 'The Shadow of the Scourge'?
