Everything that appeared in that one scene from The Timeless Children

You know the one.

Honestly, whatever you think of the episode… WHAT A SCENE. Over five decades of Doctor Who history (Whostory?) packed into a few seconds. With the theme tune! I loved it to pieces.

So being me I’ve gone through it frame by frame to pick out everything that appeared. (This gets pretty long, as you may have expected, sorry)

The Master
The Lone Cyberman
The Doctor and the Cyberium
The fam turning up at Villa Diodati
Rakaya, one of the gods from Can You Hear Me
Ruth Doctor
Jack (in a scene the Doctor wasn’t actually present for)
The Doctor running in… oh man I forgot what episode this is. Praxeus?
Nikola Tesla
Queen of the Skithra
A Dreg
The TARDIS on the ruined Gallifrey
A Dalek, I think the one from Resolution?
Oh yeah, it must be.
Well since we seem to be going backwards I guess this is a shot from the very forgettable Battle of Ranskoor Av Kolos?
The fam in It Takes You Away
One of the witches from The Witch Hunters (I think)
The wedding scene in Demons of the Punjab
The Kerblam Man
The Pting
A scene from Arachnids in the UK
A scene from Rosa (also, what a great shot)
The Doctor finding the TARDIS in The Ghost Monument
…I THINK (without having the sound on) that this is the bit where the Doctor hears “The Timeless Child” for the first time
Tim Shaw
The Doctor picking her outfit in The Woman Who Fell to Earth
Onto pre-2018 stuff! Here’s Davros and Rose
A Sycorax and Donna
A Siltheen and Amy (Yay Amy! I couldn’t see her in there at all at first)
I have NO IDEA what’s on the left, but obviously that’s River on the right
A Scarecrow and there’s Wilf! Aww, Wilf made it in.
Okay WHO IS THAT? Is that Clara just from a funny angle?! It must be right?
A Sontaran and Bill
An Ood and Martha
Empress of the Racnoss and Rory! Aw yeah Rory’s in there
A Cat Nun and Sarah Jane

Some glimpses of Twelve…


…Ten… (including a shot of him cradling the Master, who was most definitely not dead)


…War Doctor…

…Eight… (including a shot from the TV Movie there!)





…Three (and Jo)…



Okay I’m not even gonna try and name all the Classic Who monsters cos I don’t know them. And I don’t know whose face that is on the right either I’m sorry!
A Zygon and actually that might be the Brig?
??? and… wait is that Missy?
??? and the Utopia version of the Master
Don’t know who either of these are sorry!
Oh wait we’re going back through the Masters! Now I get it!
Okay there’s too much going on here
More Master
The VERY FIRST (probably) of the entities we would come to know as The Doctor
Her falling off a cliff in magnificent robes
First regeneration (I think?)
Second regeneration?

More regenerations!

SO The Brains of Morbius Doctors are CANON! After 44 years! God I love what this show can do.

BrendanDoc screaming, as a lot of the audience probably were at this point
RuthDoc again
And that’s it! End of the flashbacks.

Man the work that must’ve gone into that! They even colourised the Second and First Doctor scenes that were only ever filmed in monochrome.

(Also going through that whole scene took a damn hour.)
