Why has anything beyond Doctor Who, (the film), been included? It is non-canon... Wolf of Fenric 22:55, 15 August 2007 (UTC)

The assumption that it is non-canon is a contentious one. Many would say Dimensions in Time is not canon! The televised stories are clearly separated from the New Adventures, and the series of books (NA, but particularly the BBC 8th doctor ones) have been included in the continuity when the New Series were created (e.g. Russell T Davies stating that the Time War in the BBC novel is different from that mentioned in the series, rather than saying the books were non-canon). So it is reasonable to include them. Metebelis 23:24, 15 August 2007 (UTC)

Please see my response here. Wolf of Fenric 02:03, 16 August 2007 (UTC)

And I've added mine there too. In addition, with the 8th Doctor limited to the TV movie only, the template becomes ridiculously pointless. Making the TV Movie canon and the subsequent BBC books non-canon is only one possible point of view. Issue needs wider discussion. Metebelis 05:06, 16 August 2007 (UTC)

I've added my comment on the seventh doctor page aswell. StuartDD 15:17, 16 August 2007 (UTC)
OK, separate templates created for audios and novels to keep everyone happy. Metebelis 23:48, 20 August 2007 (UTC)
