So this is how Doctor Who’s twelfth modern series ends – a major rewriting of the Doctor’s past, a new take on regeneration and a dastardly plot by the Master.


But did The Timeless Children actually make such a big change to Doctor Who lore? In the latest edition of the Doctor Who podcast Huw Fullerton, Patrick Cremona and Morgan Jeffery delve into the biggest revelations of the series 12 finale, unpick the continuity shifts and try to guess what comes next.

Are the Morbius Doctors now canon? Will Jo Martin’s Fugitive Doctor return to the series? Why were the Doctor’s past lives redacted, and by who? Has William Hartnell been dethroned as the First Doctor? And how will the Doctor escape her imprisonment ahead of the festive special?
