Notes

  1. ^ The First Doctor remained for the first two serials of season 4. The Second Doctor featured for the remainder of the season from the third serial, The Power of the Daleks.
  2. ^ Also known by its subtitle, The Key to Time.
  3. ^ Shada was left unfinished due to a strike. The story was later completed and officially released on home media in 2017. The voices of the original actors with new animation was incorporated to bridge the gaps between the recorded live-action segments. It is not included in the episode or story counts as it was not broadcast.
  4. ^ The Fifth Doctor regenerated in the sixth serial of season 21. The Sixth Doctor featured only in the final serial, The Twin Dilemma.
  5. ^ A change in transmission format for this season only as episodes where 45 minutes instead of the usual 23 minutes. Thus a traditional 4-part story was transmitted in 2 parts.
  6. ^ Also known by its subtitle, The Trial of a Time Lord.
  7. ^ These specials consist of the 2008 Christmas, 2009 Easter, 2009 November and the 2009–10 Christmas/New Year episodes.
  8. ^ These specials consist of the 50th Anniversary and 2013 Christmas episodes.
  9. ^ This episode was the first episode of the twelfth series, and thus not a special aired outside of a series, but it was aired outside of the respective series' traditional timeslot to air deliberately on New Year's Day.
