February

March

  • 02 - Dr. Owen Harper, who continues to have difficulty accepting his new undead existence, is relieved of his duties with Torchwood Three (though he continues to help out as their new tea boy) as Martha Jones agrees to stay on as medical officer. After a fruitless suicide attempt, Harper begins to come to terms with his death and returns to active duty for a mission to retrieve an alien artifact from a dying millionaire, Henry Parker, who reveals intimate knowledge about Torchwood and its personnel before his passes away. With Harper reinstated, Jones departs Torchwood to return to her duties at UNIT. Soon after, Harper successfully talks a young woman out of committing suicide. (TW: A Day in the Death)
  • 19 - The Torchwood Three team investigates the Night Travellers. Events of TW: From Out of the Rain; date: WEB: torchwood.co.uk)
  • By this time conspiracy theorists have begun noting the disappearance of bees from the planet Earth, which is also noted by Donna Noble. (DW: Partners in Crime, et al) It is later learned that they have left Earth in anticipation of its imminent relocation to the Medusa Cascade. (DW: The Stolen Earth)

April

May

  • 15 - 18 - the Mandragora Helix attempts a takeover of Earth through the MorganTech computer systems. (NSA: Beautiful Chaos)
  • The Earth is relocated to the Medusa Cascade by the Daleks under the control of the Supreme Dalek and Davros. Despite the relocation, the planet retains a full communications network. An invasion of Earth by the Daleks commences and a number of humans are taken to "the Crucible", the Dalek mothership, where they are killed in tests of the reality bomb. As part of a counter-insurgency against the Dalek invasion, former Prime Minister Harriet Jones brings together a number of the Doctor's former companions, including Captain Jack Harkness, Sarah Jane Smith, and Martha Jones in order to contact the Doctor, and before she herself is killed by the Daleks. Rose Tyler, meanwhile, contacts Donna Noble's family and is ultimately reunited with the Doctor. During this incident, The Doctor undergoes a partial regeneration in order to repair damage from a Dalek blast; as a result of this, the Doctor's severed hand later forms a mental link with Donna and grows into a second version of the Doctor, but one that's half-human without Time Lord biological abilities such as regeneration. During this incident, Martha Jones, under orders from UNIT, reveals the existence of the Osterhagen Key, a weapon capable of destroying Earth. Due to her interaction with the second Doctor, Donna briefly gains the knowledge of a Time Lord, and with her help the two Doctors are able to defeat the Daleks. Afterwards, the Doctor and his companions are successful in restoring Earth to its original location using the TARDIS; this sparks worldwide celebrations around the planet. Afterwards, Mickey Smith chooses to remain on his original Earth instead of returning to Pete's World, Harkness offers Martha Jones a job with Torchwood Three, and the Doctor returns Rose and Jackie Tyler to Pete's World, along with his clone. Donna Noble is returned to her family, but with all memories of the Doctor wiped from her mind due to the danger to her survival posed by her transformation. (DW: The Stolen Earth/Journey's End) (Takes place within 6 weeks of NSA: Beautiful Chaos)
    • At some point during these events, a young girl named Adelaide Brooke loses her family and encounters a Dalek that, for reasons unknown to her, chooses not to exterminate her. This event inspires her to become an astronaut, becoming a trailblazer for human exploration of space - in her case, establishing the first human base on Mars in 2058 and, in turn, inspiring generations of Brookes who further expand human reach into the stars. (DW: The Waters of Mars)
  • In the aftermath of the Medusa Cascade incident, the human race on Earth begins coming to terms with the fact it is not alone in the universe. While many accept it, others experience crises of faith and a large number of people commit suicide. (TW: Children of Earth: Day One)

June

September

Newspaper Ianto Jones picks up. Date reads: Wednesday September 2009 (TW: Children of Earth: Day Two)
  • Over the course of five days, every child on Earth periodically stops in their tracks and begin reciting the same message (permutations of "We are coming"). Officially, Earth's governments claim it to be caused by a form of virus. Behind the scenes, the truth is this is a message from the 456, a race that had visited Earth in 1965 and negotiated the payment of 12 orphan children in exchange for the cure for a pandemic-level influenza virus. The 456 return to Earth and demand the payment of a significant percentage of Earth's children (for use in creating a narcotic). As part of a cover-up to divert blame away from the UK government, which brokered the original deal, the Torchwood 3 hub in Cardiff is destroyed and attempts are made to assassinate Jack Harkness, Gwen Cooper and Ianto Jones. During the course of events, Thames House becomes the centre of 456-related negotiations, and at one point all occupants of the building are exposed to a deadly gas, killing all except for Mr. Dekker and Jack Harkness. Among those killed is Ianto Jones. Ultimately, through the efforts of Harkness - who was involved in the original 1965 deal - and the sacrifice of Harkness' grandson, the 456 are driven from Earth. (TW: Children of Earth Date based upon on-screen evidence, specifically a newspaper headline.)
  • During the course of these events, Gwen Cooper and husband Rhys Williams learn that she is pregnant.
  • The government of Prime Minister Brian Green is toppled soon afterwards (assumption).
  • Stricken with guilt over the death of his grandson, Jack Harkness leaves Cardiff and spends the next few months wandering the Earth.

  • 24 - "Harold Saxon" is resurrected by Miss Trefusis and the new governer of Broadfell Prison on Christmas Eve, Lucy Saxon interferes with the resurrection, causing an explosion at the prison and killing everyone inside, except for The Master. (DW: The End of Time)
  • 25 - The Master is captured by soldiers working for Joshua Naismith so that the Master can help him use the Immortality Gate. However, the Master betrays him and as Barack Obama gives a speech on the Recession, uses the Gate's abilities, intended to heal planets, to turn every single Human on Earth except for Wilfred Mott and Donna Noble into copies of the Master. During this time a diamond harvested on Gallifrey is sent through time and space and crashes to Earth where it is retrieved by the Master, who uses it to open a portal that briefly allows Rassilon and other Time Lords to escape the Last Great Time War before the Doctor and, ultimately, the Master, foil their plans. Before this occurs, however, Rassilon undoes the "cloning" of the Master, returning the human race to normal, though they are soon faced with the spectacle of a giant planet appearing in the sky on a collision course; but this, too, is soon undone. (DW: The End of Time)

Unknown

  • Gareth, head the seismology unit of the UCMA taskforce, develops a system for accurately predicting earthquakes. Gareth's system would be credited for saving the human race several times. (DW: Doctor Who)
  • Shreela Govindia dies of an autoimmune disease. (NA: Cat's Cradle: Warhead)
  • ATMOS, a combination GPS/emission control system for automobiles, becomes widespread in vehicles around the world.
  • Rose Tyler temporarily returns from her parallel Earth, initially arriving in the normal universe (DW: Partners in Crime) but later ending up in an alternate timeline where she attains a position of authority with UNIT and works with them and Donna Noble to restore the timeline. (DW: Turn Left)
  • Captain John Hart places bombs in an abandoned building where the Torchwood team are investigating. While they are unconscious, all except for Gwen experience flashbacks. (TW: Fragments)
  • After regaining consciousness the Torchwood team try to stop John Hart. Later that night a series of alien attacks occur in Cardiff, including Weevils killing four senior Cardiff police officers, a Hoix let lose in a hospital where it is captured by Owen Harper, a group of men in cloaks haunt a building only to be shot dead by Toshiko Sato and Ianto Jones, and John Hart captures Jack Harkness and sets off several bombs in buildings across Cardiff. It is then revealed Jack's brother Gray is forcing John Hart to do his bidding. Gray unleashes all of the Weevils in the sewers on Cardiff, shoots Toshiko, who later dies of her wounds, and Owen is disintegrated by nuclear radiation following the actions of Gray and John Hart, who helps Captain Jack stop Gray. (TW: Exit Wounds)

The last two events took place between March 19th and the 2009 Dalek invasion of Earth, which took place in May. It's possible that these took place around roughly the same date Exit Wounds was originally broadcast.

February

March

  • CC: Resistance is first released.
  • ST: Short Trips: Indefinable Magic is first published, which ultimately becomes the final collection of new material in this long-running short story series as the BBC does not renew Big Finish's licence. As a result, following this publication there are no new officially licensed original literary stories being published featuring the first eight Doctors, for the time being.
  • BFIW: Iris Wildthyme and the Land of Wonder is first released.
  • The BBC series Tonight's the Night (hosted by John Barrowman) launches a contest for viewers to create their own Doctor Who monster. Following the 28 March deadline finalists will be chosen to take part in further competition on the series. The winner gets to appear in a specially written Doctor Who scene (which is similar to A Fix with Sontarans, as David Tennant appears as himself, and it also breaks the fourth wall).
  • A trailer for the upcoming K9TV: K-9 spinoff series is unveiled at the MIPTV show in Cannes and is later posted online.
  • 3 - The BBC announces that outgoing Doctor Who executive producer Julie Gardner will be joining the Los Angeles branch of BBC Worldwide in June 2009, serving as executive producer of American-market projects.
    • North American release of The Key to Time: Special Edition, a DVD collection of all stories from Season 16. This is the expanded set that was released in the UK in 2007 and replaces an earlier version of the box set that had been issued in 2002. Unlike the previous release, however, individual release of th six stories does not occur in Region 1.
  • 5 - DW: The Next Doctor (including Music of the Spheres) is released to DVD in Region 4. Also released is The E-Space Trilogy box set featuring DW: Full Circle, State of Decay and Warriors' Gate.
  • 12 - Audio adaptation of DWN: Doctor Who and the Cybermen is first released.
  • 13 - SJA: From Raxacoricofallapatorius With Love, a special mini-episode of The Sarah Jane Adventures, airs in the UK as part of Comic Relief's Red Nose Day. This is the first mini-episode to be based upon a spinoff of Doctor Who. David Tennant co-hosts the main BBC broadcast of of Red Nose Day with Davina McCall, introducing the SJA mini-episode and also taking part in a Doctor Who-themed round of the quiz show Mastermind. The SJA mini-adventure is originally given the title Funny for Money in pre-broadcast publicity, but so-writer Clayton Hickman later confirmed the official title on the Doctor Who Forum.[2]
  • 14 - Canadian premiere of DW: The Next Doctor. The cable network Space is airing the special rather than the CBC, marking a possible major shift in how future episodes of the revived series will be broadcast in that country.
  • 16 - A quarter-century after their use was phased out across the UK, Edinburgh's police department announces plans to reintroduce "TARDIS-style" police boxes.[3]
  • Mid-March - For the fourth consecutive year, episodes of Doctor Who written by Steven Moffat are nominated for the annual Hugo Award: DW: Silence in the Library/Forest of the Dead. Also nominated: Russell T Davies' episode DW: Turn Left (resulting in some controversy among fans who expected his DW: Midnight to be nominated. Competition for the award includes episodes of Battlestar Galactica and Lost; this year Doctor Who does not win, however, and the award goes to the made-for-Internet short film Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along Blog.
  • 18 - In a speech to members of BAFTA, Russell T Davies reveals that production of Series 3 of The Sarah Jane Adventures had been impacted by BBC budget cuts and had nearly been cancelled on three occasions.[4]
  • 25 - The final cast readthrough of the David Tennant era (for both parts of DW: The End of Time) takes place
  • 26 - TDL: The Colour of Darkness and TDL: The Depths of Despair are first published.
  • 30 - BFA: The Key 2 Time - The Chaos Pool is first released.

April

  • BFA: The Magic Mousetrap is first released. Beginning with this release, and continuing over 12 months, a serialized second feature, CC: The Three Companions is included.
  • CC: The Magician's Oath is first released.
  • IDW: Doctor Who: The Forgotten, a graphic novel-style release reprinting the IDW: The Forgotten story arc from IDW Publishing's Doctor Who comic book series, is first published.
  • BFIW: The Two Irises is first released.
  • In the weeks following its broadcast of DW: The Next Doctor, the Canadian television network Space confirms that it has obtained the Canadian broadcast rights to the 2009 specials and Series 5, and announces it will air DW: Planet of the Dead in June. This ends speculation over the future of Doctor Who on the CBC, although it's not yet known whether the CBC or related networks will retain broadcast rights to the first four seasons. Up to at least the end of Series 4, the CBC had been a (sometimes-credited) co-producer of the series; presumably this announcement means that arrangement has ended.
  • 02 - DW: The Rescue and The Romans are released to DVD in Region 4 in a single set.
  • 09 - Audio adaptation of DWN: Doctor Who and the Masque of Mandragora is first released.
  • 10 - After a hiatus of 10 years, Red Dwarf, the BBC's other major science fiction series, returns to TV for a three-part miniseries, Back to Earth, with part 1 aired this date on the non-BBC cable network, Dave.
  • 11 - DW: Planet of the Dead is first broadcast, the first of four one-hour special episodes of Doctor Who scheduled for broadcast during 2009 and early 2010 in lieu of a regular season in 2009. Co-written by Russell T Davies and Gareth Roberts, it is the first episode on which Davies shares writing credit, is the first episode of the revived series to credit two writers, and is the first story to credit two writers since 1993's DW: Dimensions in Time. It is also the first episode (as opposed to telemovie) of the series to be filmed in part outside Europe since 1984. The BBC did not officially announce the broadcast date until 1 April, leading to some erroneous reports that it would air on Easter Sunday itself, 12 April. The special, the first to be filmed in high-definition, was simulcast on BBC HD.
  • 13 - BBC Video releases the DVD box set The Cybermen Collection in the UK. The set includes the previously released Tenth Doctor episodes DW: The Age of Steel, Rise of the Cybermen, Army of Ghosts, and Doomsday and is the first themed reissue collection involving the revived series.
  • 16 - NSA: Judgement of the Judoon, NSA: Prisoner of the Daleks and NSA: The Slitheen Excursion are first published. All three novels feature the Tenth Doctor without a companion, continuing the format established by NSA: The Eyeless. Notably, all three releases in this cycle (as well as the preceding Quick Reads release) feature returning monsters.
  • 17 - Big Finish Productions announces that it is ending its long-running Short Trips series of short story anthologies, due to the BBC not renewing its licence in this area.[5]
  • 20 - DW: Image of the Fendahl is released to DVD in the UK.

2009
1999 ... 2007 - 200820092010 - 2011

Spoiler Warning: Plot or ending details follow. Please skip this section if you do not want foreknowledge of this plot.

2009 brought to a close Final Crisis, the last of a series of multi-part crossover events, the roots of which, extended as far back as the original "Crisis on Infinite Earths". Final Crisis was pivotal in that it featured the return of the Silver Age Flash, Barry Allen, who heroically gave his life to save the Multiverse during the first Crisis.

2009 also began with the "Superman: New Krypton" storyline, a multi-part arc that crossed over into all of the Superman Family related titles. "Superman: New Krypton" saw the emergence of more than 200,000 Kryptonians on the planet Earth and resulted in the deaths of two minor Superman supporting characters.

Hot on the heels of Final Crisis was "Faces of Evil" a string of themed one-shot and regular series issues that spotlighted the more infamous super-villains of the DCU.

Following Final Crisis and Faces of Evil, DC introduced a cornerstone event titled, "Origins and Omens". Origins and Omens was a back-up bonus featured in regular monthly issues that re-examined the origins of major characters in the DC Universe.

Both the "Bat" and "Super"-verses expanded on their previous storylines with multi-part arcs that extended into the summer season. Following "Batman R.I.P." was the seven-part "Last Rites" storyline which led into the greater "Battle for the Cowl" event – an event which completely restructured the Batman universe as various heroes struggled to fill the role of Batman – a position vacated by the presumed death of Bruce Wayne. In the aftermath of this feud, a new Dynamic Duo emerged. Former sidekick Dick Grayson once again donned the cowl of Batman while reluctantly taking Bruce’s son, Damian Wayne, under his figurative wing as the new Robin. As part of this "Batman: Reborn" event, the previous Robin, Tim Drake, assumed a new identity – Red Robin.

In the Super-verse, Superman decided to keep a closer eye on the affairs of New Krypton and voluntarily journeyed to the planet to become part of the Kryptonian military guild under General Zod. Leaving Earth a "World Without Superman", several heroes emerged to fill in the void. The Daxamite Lar-Gand protected Metropolis as Mon-El while the Kryptonian vigilantes Flamebird and Nightwing patrolled the planet hunting down Kandorian sleeper agents.

The major summer event of 2009 was the cosmic-spanning storyline "Blackest Night". Primarily involving characters from the Green Lantern family of titles, "Blackest Night" was the pivotal climax of the larger "War of Light" saga, which had been steadily gaining momentum since 2007.
