I'm indebted to for this infographic, showing all the various TV Doctors, companions, key enemies, and adventure titles. Look out for the occasional nerdy statistic, too...

Mind you, as comprehensive as this is, it's inevitably wrong in a few respects (for example, it doesn't include the two Peter Cushing movies).

So, while we wait for this year's Christmas Special... Let the nitpicking begin!
