3rd Doctor

#1 – Where an Audio Story references a TV Adventure, locate the former as close as possible to the latter.
#2 – If Story A is released before Story B, then A happens before B, unless something in-story says otherwise.

OLD SOLDIERS
The Brig says this takes place just after the events of THE SILURIANS

SHADOW OF THE PAST
Liz says its only been a few weeks since she saw a plague unleashed on humanity, putting this after the events of THE SILURIANS.

VENGEANCE OF THE STONES
Mike Yates joins UNIT. Since THE RINGS OF IKIRA has him involved in the clean-up operation after the events of THE SILURIANS. Since Captain Hawkins was the Brig’s No2 in that story, it makes sense to locate this one after that one, with Yates as his replacement

THE LAST POST
Although this audio covers the whole of Season 7, The conclusion takes place just before INFERNO

THE DEVIL GOBLINS OF NEPTUNE
One of the BBC Past Doctors range of original novels, in FIND AND REPLACE Jo refers to the events of this story, something she presumably learned about from the Doctor, in a rare example of one storytelling universe referencing another.

THE BLUE TOOTH
Given that Liz is talking about her decision to leave UNIT, this has to go between INFERNO and TERROR OF THE AUTONS.

BINARY
Liz says she’s thought about leaving UNIT, so I’ve placed this after the earlier release THE BLUE TOOTH.

THE RINGS OF IKIRIA
Yates mentions cleaning up after the events of THE SILURIANS but neither Jo nor Liz gets a mention so I’ve put this in the Story Gap in between Liz leaving and Jo arriving.

THE SENTINELS OF THE NEW DAWN
Liz says that this adventure takes place a year after she left UNIT so I’ve placed this after the earlier release THE BLUE TOOTH. She mentions that the Doctor has a new assistant but hasn’t taken to her, indicating it’s early in his relationship with Jo, so I’ve put this just after TERROR OF THE AUTONS

THE MAGICIAN’S OATH
Yates mentions the freak weather conditions, but doesn’t say that it reminds him of the similar event that happened during THE CLAWS OF AXOS, so I’ve put this adventure before that one .

FIND AND REPLACE
Given that the Doctor mentions the Axons, this story has to go somewhere after THE CLAWS OF AXOS.

TALES FROM THE VAULT
Jo mentions the events of THE SEA DEVILS, putting the tale she tells in this release somewhere after that story.

THE DEFECTORS
The Doctor doesn’t seem to have taken the TARDIS for a test flight yet, putting this soon after THE THREE DOCTORS.

THE DOLL OF DEATH
Jo refers to TERROR OF THE AUTONS, putting this story somewhere after that one. The Doctor is still exiled to Earth.

THE MISTS OF TIME
Jo mentions the events of DAY OF THE DALEKS,  putting this story after that one.  She also refers to THE DOLL OF DEATH as happening before this story, making them consecutive. Since the Doctor’s first “test flight” in the TARDIS was  THE CURSE OF PELADON, the test flight he takes in this story must take place after that one.

THE VAMPIRE OF L.A.
In THE ELIXIR OF DOOM, Jo tells Iris about her previous visit to the city with the Doctor in 1973, when they were chasing a vampire. Given that it’s unlikely that their trip to Los Angeles was made in the TARDIS, I’ve arbitrarily located this here, as a non-Master story for Season 8.

THE MANY DEATHS OF JO GRANT
The Doctor is away, taking the TARDIS on its first test flight, putting this after THE DEFECTORS.

THE HAVOC OF EMPIRES
Unlike this adventure’s companion release PRISONERS OF THE LAKE, the narration for this story clearly states that it takes place shortly after the Time Lords have rescinded the Doctor’s exile.

THE CONQUEST OF FAR
This takes place immediately after PLANET OF THE DALEKS.

UNTOLD ADVENTURES: HARRY HOUDINI
In SMOKE AND MIRRORS, we learn that the Third Doctor and Jo met Harry Houdini. Exactly when is not known so I’ve arbitrarily placed the encounter here.

GHOST IN THE MACHINE
Jo mentions the TARDIS Log, which appeared in PLANET OF THE DALEKS, so this story must take place some time after that one.

THE TRANSCENDENCE OF EPHROS
In Part Three the Doctor establishes his credentials by having Karswell contact the Madam President from FRONTIER IN SPACE, putting this story after that one.

THE RISE OF THE NEW HUMANS
Jo mentions the Doctor’s meeting with Omega, putting their encounter with the Meddling Monk somewhere after THE THREE DOCTORS.

THE THREE COMPANIONS
The Brig says that Jo has left UNIT, so I’ve put this after the earlier release THE PRISONER OF PELADON.

THE PRISONER OF PELADON
The Doctor tells King Peladon Jo has ‘moved on’, meaning this has to take place after her departure in THE GREEN DEATH.

COUNCIL OF WAR
Benton says this takes place after THE GREEN DEATH.

UNTOLD ADVENTURES: LORD DOUGLAS
In THE CATALYST we learn that the Doctor spent some time travelling with Lord Joshua Douglas, possibly ten years in Earth terms, before the two parted company over the destruction of the alien Zednai they encounter in Peru. One Zednai warrior, Humbrackle, is kept in stasis in the TARDIS in what the Fourth Doctor refers to as his “trophy room”, and will remain there until he is inadvertently freed by Leela. These Untold Adventures can really only go in the Story Gap between Jo leaving and Sarah arriving.

In NO PLACE LIKE HOME, the Fifth Doctor tells Erimem that he delivered the Terracota Army to the Chinese Emperor during his Third incarnation. Did this take place during his time with Lord Douglas?

THE PARADISE OF DEATH
Given that this adventure takes place on Earth, the only two possible Story Gaps it could fit into are those before or after THE MONSTER OF PELADON. I’ve gone with after.

THE GHOSTS OF N-SPACE
Sarah mentions the Daleks, putting this somewhere after DEATH TO THE DALEKS.
