Doctor Who Timeline / Infographic

So, I like this mostly because it is really long, and thus exploits one of the affordances of the web format. I mean, it would either look like crap in a magazine, or involve a big fold-out thingy, and probably no one would bother to make it then.

Anyway, this comes from CableTV.com. It's got all your Doctors, your Companions, your villains, and little fun facts.

Minor quibbles:
Considered by many to be the most iconic Doctor, the fourth Doctor appeared in more seasons seasons and adventures than any other.
The Fourth Doctor is the only Doctor.
 "Blink" is consistently cited as one of the most popular episodes in the history of the series, even though the Doctor is largely absent from the majority of the episode.
The supposed "Doctor" in this case is the tenth "Doctor," in light of which I would suggest replacing "even though" with "because."

Fun fact not included in the poster: Lalla Ward, who played the second Romanadvoratrelundar, is married to Richard Dawkins.
