|Timeline for 2010|
2004 • 2005 • 2006 • 2007 • 2008 • 2009 • 2011 • 2012 • 2013 • 2014 • 2015 • 2016
2010 was the year of the weddings of four of the Doctor's companions: Bernice Summerfield, Donna Noble, Amy Pond, and Rory Williams, though Amy and Rory were the bride and groom, respectively, of the same wedding. It was also the year in which the Eleventh Doctor returned for Amy Pond and she joined him in his travels in his TARDIS.
Gwen Cooper and Rhys Williams met with Jack Harkness outside Cardiff. Jack, still mourning the deaths of his grandson, Ianto Jones, Owen Harper, Toshiko Sato and Suzie Costello, used his recovered vortex manipulator to send a signal to a cold fusion freighter just outside the Sol system. He was beamed into space. With the departure of Jack, Torchwood Three unofficially ceased to exist. (TV: Children of Earth: Day Five)
The wedding of Donna Noble and Shaun Temple occurred at this time. Among her guests were her mother Sylvia Noble, granddad Wilfred Mott, friend Nerys, and, unbeknownst to her, the Tenth Doctor, who was in the midst of a prolonged regeneration. The Doctor (by way of Sylvia and Wilf) gave Donna a winning triple rollover lottery ticket as a wedding gift. (TV: The End of Time)
On 25 June, the Eleventh Doctor returned to Amy Pond's house two years after the incident with the Atraxi and Prisoner Zero from 2008 and invited her to travel with him. (TV: The Eleventh Hour). They left together, and returned at 11:55 PM after the crash of the Byzantium. (TV: Flesh and Stone)
On 26 June, the Eleventh Doctor and Amy left for 1580 Venice after picking up Amy's fiancé Rory from his stag party. (TV: Flesh and Stone, The Vampires of Venice). Amy Pond and Rory Williams got married after the Eleventh Doctor, with Amy's help, had restored the universe to its original condition. (TV: The Big Bang)
Approximately this time, Anwen Williams, daughter of Gwen Cooper and Rhys Williams, was born. (TV: Children of Earth: Day One, The New World based on Gwen being two weeks pregnant in Children of Earth)
Soon after Luke arrived at Oxford, a critically ill Androvax returned to Earth to free the remains of the Veil species from an interdimensional vault there. With Sarah Jane Smith and Mister Dread's help, he took the spaceship with the Veil safely off Earth into space to search for a new home. Mister Dread gave his life saving the day. (TV: The Vault of Secrets)
Sarah Jane Smith was told by UNIT they had found the Doctor's body. She and her gang, along with Jo Jones and her grandson, were invited to the Doctor's funeral underneath Mount Snowdon. The Eleventh Doctor arrived; his death had been faked by the Claw Shansheeth. Using a machine he built, he swapped places with Clyde Langer from where he had been trapped in the Crimson Heart. With help from Jo and Sarah Jane, he fixed his teleporter and returned them all to Earth properly. The Claw Shansheeth and Tia Karim used memory weave technology to attempt to create a TARDIS key from the Doctor's companions' memories. Sarah Jane and Jo overloaded the machine, killing the Shansheeth and Tia. (TV: Death of the Doctor)
Before 23 November, Clyde and Rani, having been grounded by the Judoon, were the only two humans left on Earth. They found an alien prince, Gavin, and delivered him to royal robots so he could take his rightful place as king of his home planet. Gavin happily teleported to his home planet after he knighted Clyde and Rani and ordered the return of the warp shunted human race. (TV: The Empty Planet)
On 23 November, the Shopkeeper requested the Bannerman Road gang's help to acquire Chronosteel at key points in time to save the Earth. While two of the pieces were supplied, one was left behind with Emily Morris in 1889. Her descendant, Angela, having been handed the newspaper article of the red herring the Shopkeeper had used to draw the Bannerman Road gang to him, gave the Shopkeeper the piece, saving the timestream. The Shopkeeper departed with his parrot Captain. (TV: Lost in Time)
Sarah Jane encountered an unwilling ally using the alias of Ruby White. Ruby ultimately faked Sarah Jane's retirement, taking over 13 Bannerman Road and Mr Smith, and tried to kill Sarah Jane by draining her life-force. Ruby was defeated by being overwhelmed by humanity's fears of meteors (in simulations created by Mr White, reprogrammed by Luke). She was sent off into space on her prison ship. (TV: Goodbye, Sarah Jane Smith)
The Eleventh Doctor took Amy Pond to see a Vincent van Gogh exhibit in the Musée d'Orsay. They discovered a monster peeping through a church window in one of van Gogh's paintings. They travelled back to 1890 to discover the meaning of the painting and later took Vincent to 2010 to show modern evaluation of his work. (TV: Vincent and the Doctor) Although the date in the year was not confirmed, the setting indicates that it was winter or nearing it.
The Tenth Doctor and Majenta Pryce landed in Sydney Australia and foiled an invasion of the Skith. (COMIC: The Age of Ice) The following events are conjectured as taking place in 2010. None of them, however, include any on-screen indication as to whether they actually occurred this year, but the likeliness was that they do, with Martha and Mickey appearing recently married and having gotten married near September 2009 and Captain Jack appearing to have not been away from Earth long since he left in March this year.
At some point after March, the Tenth Doctor visited Jack Harkness, who was recovering from the 456 incident, and hinted that he should start dating Alonso Frame before parting. (TV: Children of Earth: Day Five, TV: The End of Time)
Verity Newman, great-granddaughter of Joan Redfern, published a semi-autobiography of her great-grandmother, incorporating elements of John Smith's A Journal of Impossible Things. During a book-signing, the Tenth Doctor, who had used a chameleon arch to temporarily become John, got a copy of the book signed and asked if Joan lived a happy life. (TV: Human Nature/The Family of Blood, The End of Time)

26 June, River Song arrived some time in the early morning before sunrise after the TARDIS landed there. She investigated Amy's house and found a book on the Pandora's Box and a Roman Britain book beside Amy's bed. She took them for analysis in the TARDIS shortly before it exploded on this date, cracking all of time and space. (TV: The Pandorica Opens)
Mickey Smith, Jake Simmonds and Pete travelled from a parallel world back to the Doctor's universe. They and Rose and Jackie Tyler were stuck in Pete's World after the tear through the Void closed. (TV: Doomsday)
