It's the end ...

Tardis bag
After 41 gruelling days of editing, the big editing fight for the TARDIS bag you see at the left settled into a two-person race between our newest admin, Shambala108, and our returning veteran, Skittles the hog.

At the end of the day, Skittles was just barely pipped to the post by the comparative "newbie" — but both amassed almost 4000 edits each in the first half of series 8.

Their phenomenal editing, as well as that of everyone who participated, is much appreciated. The wiki has emerged a stronger, better place for these concentrated edits. (Want details?)

... but the moment has been prepared for

Feel left out? You shouldn't! Our next contest is already under way. It started on 26 September, and will close on the Friday after the series 8 finale in November! It's another who-can-edit-most-in-the-main-namespace contest, only this time no administrative staff are eligible. This one is just for registered editors! So sign up and start editing! What's the prize, you ask? Who can say, dear reader, who can say? (Didja see what I did there? Yeah, I'm rolling my eyes, too.)

Go live with some otters

Brand new Doctor, same old rules

We define spoiler to be any information — be it narrative or behind-the-scenes — which surrounds any story in any medium that has not yet been released. It doesn't matter if the source is The Sun or the British Broadcasting Corporation — it's a violation of our policies to write about un-released stories, or the casting and crewing of those adventures.

Remember, we're not a news site. We're an encyclopaedia. Our focus is on what has already happened in the DWU, not what is to come.

In order to uphold this policy in 2014, we will occasionally have to restrict editing to only those people who have accounts. If you want to guarantee yourself the ability to edit once Peter Capaldi starts his run, we strongly recommend that you sign up for a totally free account today.

For clarity, information about any episode of the series is not allowed before roughly 9pm British time on the Saturday of transmission.

We will honour that deadline in our social media feeds, as well. And we will never give away major spoilers in social media. But if you live in, say, Alaska, yore going to be a few hours behind London. Our editing restrictions end before you will have seen the current episode. Plan accordingly.

Doctor Who is a "family franchise", which means there's something in it for all ages.
It does not mean that all content is appropriate for all ages.

Doctor Who, Torchwood, The Sarah Jane Adventures, K9 and Company, K9 "the TARDIS", the sonic screwdriver, psychic paper, the Daleks, the Cybermen, the K9 prop — and all characters, concepts and situations described and displayed on this wiki— are © and or ™ the British Broadcasting Corporation, BBC Worldwide, Metal Mutt Productions and/or their individual creators and licensees. No infringement of any entity's legal rights is intended. Strenuous effort is made to ensure that only low-resolution still images — and videos released by copyright holders in their public social media channels — are uploaded here, so as to protect the copyright holders' legitimate interests. In simpler language: we're just fans doing our best to catalogue the franchise we love, without hurting the financial position of any of its owners.

Quote of the minute

Katarina: [ Steven ] has a strange sickness. Can you not help him?
First Doctor: I'm doing the very best I can, my child. Oh dear, dear dear. It is such a worry. The poison seems to be spreading throughout the whole of his system. Yes, we need a special drug. I shall have to land somewhere.
Katarina: (noticing flashing lights on the console) What is that?
First Doctor: Oh, we're slowing down my dear. We're going to land in a moment.
Katarina: Can we have reached the Place of Perfection so soon?
First Doctor: Ah, well, I rather doubt it. At least, that is, we shall be stopping at a lot of places before that.

Popular categories

If you're new to wikis, it might be helpful for you to take note of the concept of categories. Categories are the principal organizing tool on a wiki, allowing users to group information in ways that can ease the discovery of information. All the pages on our wiki are found, ultimately, in just four big "super categories". If this is your first visit here, please go to Floor 500 for a discussion of the way our wiki is organized.

Real world
On our wiki, the world we actually live in is called the "real world" . As such, information about the production of Doctor Who and her sister shows are in this category. This includes pages about the actual televised episodes themselves, the behind-the-scenes personnel, terminology used by the production teams, and merchandise related to the shows.
Time-Space Visualiser
The Time-Space Visualiser is the place where most of this wiki's pages reside. All the articles are written from an in-universe perspective, quite different to what you might be used to on Wikipedia. Here you'll find information related to The Doctor, his companions, Other individuals, astronomical objects, time travel, species, locations, science, culture, and a whole host of other subjects.
Non-DWU material
Notwithstanding writer Paul Cornell's famous comments that denounced the concept of "canon" in Doctor Who, our canon policy does deem a few things to be outside the Doctor Who universe. For examples, visit: stories, characters, technology, species, and locations.
The Hub
This category contains articles having to do with the actual running of the wiki. It's full of all those little pages that help the wiki work. As such, it isn't accessed often by most users. However, more advanced editors might wish to peruse the templates category for ways to make their editing easier. Or if you're looking for a place to start editing on the wiki, you might want to look at articles that need updating, major expansion, general copy-editing, sectional cleanup, and re-writing from an in-universe perspective.
