** The 2005 season, which revived the show after a long hiatus, keeps the continuity of the old seasons (or at least as much continuity as there can be in a show about time travel), but does not require having seen the old seasons to make sense, so it is considered a jumping on point for the series.

** The 2005 season, season with Creator/ChristopherEccleston, which revived marked the show show's return to regular broadcasting after a long hiatus, 16-year hiatus (1996 telemovie aside), keeps the continuity of the old seasons (or at least as much continuity as there can be in a show about time travel), but does not require having seen the old seasons to make sense, so it is considered a jumping on point for the series.series. Aiding this is the fact that the show's season and episode counters both reset to 1 with the premiere of the Eccleston season; "Rose" is officially designated as the first episode of Series 1 as opposed to Season 27.



** Generally speaking, any time a new actor takes the role of the Doctor can be seen as this, as the show tended to take on a slightly different style to suit each actor. Occasionally, the arrival of a new companion is also treated as this as, in the Modern Era, the companions are explicitly intended to be analogues for the audience. However, the pre-1989 show generally did not have much in the way of long-term plot arcs, so didn't need jumping-on points so much.

If a point in a series, it will often restart the numbering -- instead of ''Comicbook/{{Spider-Man}}'' #237, it'll be ''Spider-Man volume 2'' #1. It may be just after the resolution of a massive storyline, and it'll almost always show something similar to the general status quo of the series.

** The beginning of Creator/PeterCapaldi's last season, which introduced new companion Bill, was also conceived as a jumping-on point, with very little of the season requiring a detailed memory of prior continuity.

* As [[LampshadeHanging lampshaded]] by Creator/AnnaRussell, in the opening of ''[[Theatre/TheRingOfTheNibelung Götterdämmerung]]'', the Fates re-tell the story of the first three operas ("Right over again ''from the beginning.'' That is,
of course, [[SarcasmMode in case you couldn't hear it the first time]]."):
--> As a matter of fact, you can miss out parts one, two, and three, and go in at the beginning of ''Götterdämmerung'' and you'll be just about as far ahead as anyone else is.

When a whole new continuity is created, it's an UltimateUniverse. Compare the plot-variant of NewFirstComics, where at least part of the snarl [[CanonDiscontinuity is rendered non-canon]].

** The fifth season premiere, "No Compromises", saw another new station commander, Captain Elizabeth Lochley, coinciding with the show jumping networks to TNT. That said, the true JumpingOnPoint for viewers in the fifth season was the MadeForTVMovie "In The Beginning", which managed to sum up four seasons or so of the universe's BackStory ([[ClipShowEpisode while also utilizing numerous clips from previous episodes to save on production costs]]).
