Bernice Summerfield Timeline

Yes, it's kinda complicated at times. You try weaving through all the media. A lot of this is borrowed from the 3rd edition of Lance Parkin and Lars Pearson's Ahistory, but they omit the anthologies, which I find a bit suspect, personally, as it renders some aspects of Benny's ongoing adventures incoherent. Simon Guerrier's Bernice Summerfield: The Inside Story and many contributions to this thread on Gallifrey Base [note: link is members-only] were also useful.
