William Hartnell

Note that for the early Hartnell years, each episode of a serial had an individual title; no serial had an overall onscreen title until "The Savages". The earlier stories did have overall titles though they were not used onscreen and a lot of confusion has existed over the years, with many sources using different titles due to early fandom and reference works being unable to initially access the production files.

Paul McGann

TV Movie (1996)

No title was ever used for this project other than "Doctor Who", which is highly confusing in a listing of this nature. However "Enemy Within" was suggested as an alternative title by one of the producers and has been used by many fans lacking any other title by which to refer to the telemovie.

Christopher Eccleston

Season 27? (2005)

It's not yet clear whether this season will be officially labelled Season 27 by the production team. Each episode will be 45 minutes. Information below subject to change.
