* Katherine, a.k.a. Kit Bennett, in ''Fanfic/ChildrenOfTime''. When [[Series/DoctorWho the Doctor]], [[Literature/SherlockHolmes Sherlock Holmes, and Dr. John Watson]] meet her for the first time, she already knows all three very well. Her words and behavior as they exchange goodbyes at the end of her episode implies that she will never seen Holmes and Watson again. (The story takes place during UsefulNotes/WorldWarII, so both men would most likely be dead already.)

** In [[Recap/DoctorWhoS29E1SmithAndJones "Smith and Jones"]], Martha's first encounter with the Doctor consists in him walking up to her, removing his tie and saying "Like so, see?" She later meets him "again" in the hospital, and when she asks him about why he did that, he denies having done so. At the end of the episode, he goes off in the TARDIS and returns with his tie undone, proving to Martha that the TARDIS is a time machine.

* ''Series/TwelveMonkeys'': Dr. Jeffrey Goines, as well as the 'Pallid Man', have already encountered future versions of Cole at the time Cole first meets them. Cole is understandably confused by their familiarity with him. Jones has to remind him that he is "experiencing time out of order".
* ''Series/ABitOfFryAndLaurie'': Spoofed in a Fry & Laurie sketch about time travel, in which Stephen Fry is visited three times in succession by Hugh Laurie as first a time traveler from five minutes into the future, then a time traveler from five minutes into the past, and finally a present-day scientist working on a device that will certainly not cause time travel as a side effect, all of whom claim not to have met him before. After Laurie leaves the third time, Fry remarks to the audience: "I'm sure, logically, something weird should happen now, but I can't work out what."



** In the old-series story [[Recap/DoctorWhoS26E1Battlefield "Battlefield"]], the combatants on both sides of the eponymous battle immediately recognize the Doctor from an earlier visit to their world -- much to his confusion, since it's still in his future.

*** Answered by an off-hand remark in [[Recap/DoctorWhoS30E17E18TheEndOfTime "The End of Time"]]: he marries her (and, it is implied, removes her of the right to go by the title of "Virgin Queen", wink wink nudge nudge). [[Recap/DoctorWho50thASTheDayOfTheDoctor "The Day of the Doctor"]] reveals there was a bit more to it.
** In [[Recap/DoctorWhoS29E10Blink "Blink"]], Sally Sparrow spends the entire episode receiving messages from the Doctor, who's trapped in 1969. At the end of the episode, she finally finds him but he claims he never met her. Sally then realizes that he hasn't been trapped "yet" and then gives him all the means possible to send the messages, thus creating a StableTimeLoop.



*** In "[[Recap/DoctorWhoS30E8SilenceInTheLibrary Silence in the Library]]" and "[[Recap/DoctorWhoS30E9ForestOfTheDead Forest of the Dead]]", River Song appears to have known the future Doctor.

*** In her fourth appearance, "[[Recap/DoctorWhoS32E1TheImpossibleAstronaut The Impossible Astronaut]]"/"[[Recap/DoctorWhoS32E2DayOfTheMoon Day of the Moon]]", River claims that her and the Doctor's personal timelines are not just out of whack, they're going in completely opposite directions: (nearly) ''every time'' the Doctor meets River, it will be earlier still for her, until eventually the last time he meets her will be the first time ''she'' meets ''him''.
