Doctor Who Magazine looks at some of the show’s most mind bending continuity conundrums this month, including a look at the implications of The Timeless Children reveal

This year’s revelations about the identity of the Timeless Child changed everything we know about Doctor Who. Again. The new Doctor Who Magazine examines the show’s long history of rewriting its own continuity, as well as that of its central character. But can it all be made to fit? Or do fans have to instead accept the ever evolving contradictions as part of the show’s intrinsic formula?
