->''What if the “real” timeline is like a musical score, with infinite ornamentations possible? There can’t be a perfectly correct performance of the score, because a score is a guide, not a definition. It opens possibilities rather than closing them off. Why shouldn’t time be like music?''

* OurVampiresAreDifferent: Ever since the TV series introduced the idea that vampires are vreal in ''Series/DoctorWho'', the ExpandedUniverse has been running ''wild'' with variations on them. Particularly, the ''Literature/EighthDoctorAdventures'', the Creator/BigFinish story arc involving the Forge, the Creator/BigFinish arc involving Rassilon and the Creator/BigFinish ''Jago & Litefoot'' series involve a lot of the blood suckers.

* ''Kaldor City'': By Magic Bullet Productions. Stories set in the decadent far-future human ([[AmbiguouslyHuman probably]]) culture seen in the Fourth Doctor serial "[[Recap/DoctorWhoS14E5TheRobotsOfDeath The Robots of Death]]". Either an IntercontinuityCrossover or proof that ''Doctor Who'' and ''[[Series/BlakesSeven Blake's 7]]'' [[CanonWelding take place in the same universe]]. An earlier Literature/PastDoctorAdventures novel, ''Corpse Marker'', by "Robots of Death" scriptwriter and ''Blake's Seven'' script editor Chris Boucher, had already featured a crossover character, and these act as loose sequels to that novel. They have more grounding in the Whoniverse than the ''B7'' universe, though, and featured the surprise return of an old baddy and someone who's [[LawyerFriendlyCameo quite probably a Blake's 7 main character.]]

In late 1963 we had ''Series/DoctorWho'', the series which spawned the Franchise/{{Whoniverse}}. Then in 1964, in the pages of ''TV Comic'', a ''Doctor Who'' spin-off comic started. It was the first part of what would become the ''Doctor Who'' ExpandedUniverse: a never-ending supply of stories with many different branches, timelines and continuities, which have a strong tendency to reference each other and mutually contradict each other in the same breath. Just how strongly linked it's continuity is to that of the TV series is "debatable" and very, very complicated.
