The digital-only Unhistory supplements the work of Ahistory: An Unauthorised History of the Doctor Who Universe by placing on a single timeline the stories which very much look apocryphal, outside the parameters of the main Whoniverse.

These are the bizarre side-steps of Doctor Who, including adventures in which the Doctor travelled with his grandchildren John and Gillian (and they blew up or shot some baddies as the mood took them), the Doctor sold Vodafone products to save the Earth, and Sutekh the World Destroyer appeared in a performance of Aladdin – and got so bored that he minced the mind of Widow Twankey. All told, this supplement examines nearly 450 stories, including the pre-Doctor Who Magazine comics (1964-1979); the 1960s and 1970s Dalek-related books; the World Distributors Doctor Who annuals; the 1960s Peter Cushing films; the Cadet sweet cigarette card stories; sketches and parodies such as The Curse of Fatal Death, Disney Time, Animal Magic and The Day of the Doctor cinema intros; sales pitches such as the Prime Computer Adverts and the New Zealand Superannuation Adverts; the 1980s and 2000s Choose Your Own Adventure-style books; and more. God in Heaven, so much more.

Also included: new essays on topics including the Daleks’ static electricity phase, the Doctor’s cottage years, and how there’s something quite different about the Doctor portrayed by a much-older Tom Baker. [At this time, there are no plans to fold the stories in this supplement into future print versions of Ahistory.]
