Continuity PlacementEdit

It is unclear where Season 26b is set. It is obviously set  after the TV movie in which the Seventh Doctor regenerated into the Eighth Doctor but before the events of The Night of the Doctor. Given the addition of K9 and Romana it's safe to say that it can be placed either after EDA: The Gallifrey Chronicles or before EDA: Vampire Science. Due to the style and tone of the productions, it is more likely to be set after EDA: The Gallifrey Chronicles and with the recent inclusion of Lucie Miller between BFA: Death in Blackpool and BFA: Situation Vacant. His hair is (usually) short, so placement after X and the Daleks is presumable.
