Well...shit, that's confusing.

I guess we'll just have to take it on a case-by-case basis.

So the characters we would have would be

Dalek Prime
Dalek Emperor (Dalek Chronicles)
Dalek Emperor (Evil of the Daleks)
Dalek Emperor (Big Finish)
Dalek Emperor (Time War)

Right?

From the FAQ:

Quote:
2) Placements to avoid spoilers. We move things that would spoil big reveals until after the big reveal, even if it's wrong chronologically. This is to keep you from missing what would otherwise be a big moment. A good example of this is the War Doctor, who chronologically should go between Doctor's 8 & 9. However, information about him was treated as a big mystery for years until its reveal during the run of the 11th Doctor. Since watching this would ruin both the reveal and the mystery, we put all his stories after the reveal as a flash back.


While this is an excellent example of why we've ordered things the way we are, shouldn't we still put this in spoiler tags? We're talking about how bad it would be to spoil something...and then spoil it.

Is it? We've known of the existence of a war doctor since the war was first mentioned, just no details. It says nothing about who/what the war doctor is, nor details about him. Both the 10th and 11th doctor reference "the war doctor", if not by that specific name (which I don't think is used in the actual show at all either), enough to know he exists.

I think "there's a separate incarnation between the Eighth and Ninth Doctors who fought in the Time War" is a pretty significant spoiler, even if 95% of the audience for this site will already know he exists. I'd change that to be more broadly about how the exact nature of the Time War was a mystery until the 2013 50th anniversary special, and so stories that deal with those revelations will be held back until after.

I edited it to be less specific.

So, starting with The Alchemists, the stories are about the Doctor and Susan traveling before they took on Ian and Barbara. Alex put it there because you've gotten to know the Doctor well enough to know he's not evil, so listening/reading these stories doesn't ruin the experience early in the show. So, we need a flashback tag for these stories.

Alex cleverly is using The Alchemists as a launching point for these stories because it has a framing device of Susan telling a story to Ian and Barbara in a letter. So, considering that the framing device isn't a flashback but the story is, does The Alchemists get a flashback tag or not?
