A new Tardis, at last

As we do every holiday period, we're giving back to the larger Wikia community this season by participating in a a live test of the new article prototype design. It gives us a chance to finally prune back our CSS and JS and start over with a dramatically different design. While we do this, expect that the site is going to look a little — maybe even a lot — weird.

How can you help speed things along? File reports on things that you think are "off". Go to our article prototype board and start a new thread. Screenshots will be very helpful with your reports, so don't be afraid to include them!

Thanks everyone! And, please, have a safe and enjoyable holiday period!

But first, this cuddly reminder of Christmas Past

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.

Article of the minute

City otd
City of the Daleks was the first major exploration of Dalek society, culture and technology. A full-colour, painted comic story published in the wake of the televised serial, The Daleks, it featured a single human sneaking around the Dalek capital city on Skaro, and was part of the broader narrative arc seen in The Dalek Book. It also featured the first cross-sectional view of a Dalek — a foldout poster cleverly worked into the narrative of the story as "Anatomy of the Dalek". Although many of its narrative innovations were not carried through to later Dalek stories, it did feature the debut of the Dalek lie detector, which would eventually plague Romana II in Destiny of the Daleks.

Quote of the minute

Elizabeth Klein: Schmidt called it "the TARDIS". It meant nothing to me. I'd never heard that name until I met you. How on Earth could Schmidt know it?
Seventh Doctor:: The memory cheats. Perhaps your memory is playing tricks with you. I used to think Professor X was better in the sixties until I went back and watched it again. even Vault of the Cyborgs.
Klein: No, I know what I heard. He definitely said, "TARDIS".
Seventh Doctor: Anyway it's all in the past now. Well, a version of the past. Your past, to be more precise.
Klein: How could Schmidt have known? Yet another thing to haunt me the rest of my life. I can't let it go. Somehow, I just know that it's important. I can feel it.

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.
