Blogtor Who has created a unique chart to be your guide through the tangles timelines of Time Lord Victorious!
River Song had it easy… As revealed in this week’s official Doctor Who newsletter, Time Lord Victorious follows not two travellers meeting in the wrong order, but six. That wibbly wobbly ball of timey-wimey stuff has never been more tangled. But Blogtor Who have broken down the details of all six paths through the crossover into one at-a-glance graphic. The epic event has been especially designed by producer James Goss and his team to be accessible at multiple levels. Each individual story can stand alone, or you can follow a given character through their adventure for a deeper arc. Or, of course, you can complete multiple paths or get them all!
There are six overlapping paths through Time Lord Victorious, each telling a complete story from the perspective of a different character
The Eighth Doctor’s path takes him from a planet where time has been fractured, to an uneasy alliance with an elite Dalek Time Squad. Together they’ll confront the Time Lord Victorious, before their truce falls apart in the aftermath. Meanwhile, the Ninth Doctor and Rose find themselves flung back into the midst of the Great Vampire Wars of the Dark Times. Their quest to discover why they’re in the distant past will bring too, into conflict with the Time Lord Victorious. The Tenth Doctor treads the most difficult path of all. Receiving a warning from the Dalek Emperor, he heads to the Dark Times where he becomes determined to end the Kotturuh’s reign of death. Assuming the mantle of the Time Lord Victorious, he faces off against the Kotturuh, the Daleks, and even his own younger selves. In the aftermath he finds himself on a quest for answers.
Even the monsters make their own paths through the epic tale. For the Daleks it begins with a impossible warning from billions of years in the past. The Emperor forms an elite Dalek Time Squad. But even in an uneasy alliance with their greatest nemesis, will they survive an encounter with the Time Lord Victorious? Only in the aftermath of trying to settle scores with the Eighth Doctor, do the survivors realize the truth of their situation… For the Kotturuh, they rise to power in the Dark Times, spreading their gift of death. But the arrival of the Time Lord Victorious from the distant future threatens everything. And finally, Brian the Ood Assassin hunts his latest target, the Eighth Doctor, before finding himself travelling back to the Dark Times with the Tenth Doctor. But the aftermath may prove just how trustworthy Brian really is.
