This is my timeline for Eight and Charley solo. It’s always the difficult one to make sense of because Lucie only has a few short trips and everything else is release order except the Further Adventures which has a very obvious placement and then Molly, Liv, Helen and Bliss are all completely release order.
The Doctor meets Charley on the R101 and takes her on as his companion.
Sword of Orions
Charley is reading up on Future Earth History at the beginning of the story, which the Doctor suggested she do following the recent events of Sword of Orion. The Doctor and Charley have been together for a matter of days.
The Stones of Venice
Minuet in Hell
The Doctor and Charley release Ramsay back into the vortex immediately after leaving Venice which leads to them crashlanding in Malebolgia. Charley discovers what a TV is.
A Good Life
Charley is covered in bruises and has a black eye, so maybe right after Minuet in Hell?
Charley is uncomfortable wearing revealing clothes, so it’s probably earlier in her travels while she still has her Edwardian sensibilities. It’s after Minuet in Hell though because she watches TV.
Be Good For Goodness Sake
Charley seems more interested in going to a disco with people her age than spending time with the Doctor, so it’s probably quite early on.
War in a Time of Peace
Charley visits Prague for the first time.
The Man Who Wasn’t There
Charley learns about the TARDIS translation circuits for the first time. It feels generally early on.
Invaders from Mars
The Doctor and Charley are trying to get to Singapore.
The Chimes of Midnight
Charley still wants to get to Singapore, but the Doctor decides to stop actively trying to get there, because the TARDIS is avoiding it and he says they’ll end up there eventually. Charley begins to suspect that she was supposed to die on the R101, but the Doctor evades her questions.
Apparently this is where Gary Russell said it was supposed to go.
The Light at the End
Nick Briggs said that this is supposed to go somewhere during the second series. The Doctor tries to give the TARDIS an overhaul, perhaps due to their trouble getting to Singapore. Charley eventually says that she doesn’t mind if they don’t always get to where they want to go and this feels early on for her. Charley doesn’t know about regeneration, but does know about the TARDIS translation circuits, setting this after The Man Who Wasn’t There.
Seasons of Fear
The Doctor and Charley finally get to Singapore after six attempts. One of which was chronicled in Invaders from Mars, and then the final, successful attempt here. Charley is now convinced, especially following her encounter with Edith Thompson, that she was supposed to die and it is causing issues with time, and the Doctor finally admits to her that this may be the case.
Its been a long time since Storm Warning.
The Heroine, The Hero and the Megalomaniac
Seasons of Fear is mentioned.
Lady of the Snows
Seasons of Fear is mentioned and Charley visits Prague, setting this after War in a Time of Peace.
You Had Me At Verify User Name and Password
One of the characters have already met the Doctor and Charley on several other occasions, so this is probably set at least a fair bit into their travels so that they could have met this person a few times before. Otherwise it’s just in release order for Short Trips.
Pretty arbitrary to be honest, I’ve just stuck it in release order with the other Short Trips, it can go anywhere really.
Faithful Friends: Part 3
Charley has already met the Brigadier, so it’s at some point after Minuet in Hell, but otherwise Short Trips release order.
Short Trips release order.
Charley is pretty much head over heels for the Doctor at this point and has been with him for a few weeks so I think this makes most sense after Seasons of Fear. Although she only mentions Storm Warning and Sword of Orion.
Embrace the Darkness
The Doctor and Charley notice a flotilla of Battle TARDISes in the vortex, which they later discover were coming after them specifically. I wouldn’t want to have this too far away from Neverland, but it’s up to the individual.
The events of Embrace the Darkness are referenced.
Charley knows that she was supposed to die on the R101 and that it’s had an effect on the web of Time, and she’s also quite madly in love with the Doctor, so it’s after Seasons of Fear and quite late in their travels.
The Hall of Ten Thousand
Charley is pretty much used to all the weird stuff that comes with travelling with the Doctor, so I put it later on.
The Time of the Daleks
After defeating the Daleks, The Doctor and Charley need to take a young William Shakespeare back to his own time.
The Doctor and Charley take William Shakespeare home, setting this immediately after The Time of the Daleks.
The Doctor and Charley have just taken Shakespeare home.
The Doctor and Charley are still discussing the events of The Time of the Daleks, so not that much time has passed. They’ve been travelling together for sixth months by this point and it is Charley's nineteenth birthday.
Set Immediately after Neverland.
