* AlternateTimeline: The later Seventh Doctor comics, until 1994, shared a continuity with the Literature/DoctorWhoNewAdventures, featuring that novel series's darker characterisation of the Doctor, original companion Bernice Summerfield, and older and tougher version of Ace. In 1994 a new editor who disliked the New Adventures replaced the Seventh Doctor strips with a series of stories featuring various past versions of the Doctor (although one, featuring the Sixth Doctor, was heavily tied in to an earlier New Adventures-continuity story). The last of these stories, which led into the first big story arc of the Eighth Doctor's comic strips, featured the Seventh Doctor and a younger "Survival"-era Ace, and ended with Ace being killed off, establishing the later strips as definitely not taking place in the New Adventures continuity.

Six also meets Beep The Meep in a Creator/BigFinish {{omake}} audio, which came as a free gift with DWM.

* CanonDiscontinuity: Following ''Series/DoctorWho''[='=]s initial cancellation in 1989, the strip continued publishing Seventh Doctor stories that later began to share a continuity with the Virgin Publishing Literature/DoctorWhoNewAdventures novel series, featuring book companion Characters/BerniceSummerfield, and a notably older Ace. In 1994, however, the DWM editor decided to break with NA continuity, and proceeded to do so by killing off a notably ''younger'' Ace in "Ground Zero", making the NA tie-ins Discontinuity. (However, the Tenth Doctor strips make [[ContinuityNod reference]] to strips both before and after the break.)
