This page lists appearances of the Torchwood Institute and Torchwood Three in chronological order. This timeline is based upon observations of the Doctor Who universe and the events that occur during each of these stories. From these observations we have attempted to build a concise timeline. It is assumed that for each novel, comic, audio or television series, their published, broadcast or numbered order is the order they occur in.

The layout of this timeline is in part based on the observations on Torchwood Reference Guide and Doctor Who - The Complete Adventures, as well as Lance Parkin's AHistory and other sources that allow us to make observations, such as Doctor Who Reviews, The Discontinuity Guide and Clive Banks databanks. None of these sources should be used solely as a source or considered a "true" timeline for stories.

Everyone on Earth is rendered unable to die, in an event dubbed Miracle Day; CIA agent Rex Matheson survives a fatal car accident, and is treated by Dr. Vera Juarez, and convicted pedophile Oswald Danes survives his execution. Jack erases all Torchwood history from the internet, and meets CIA analyst Esther Drummond while destroying the last paper documents. When Gwen's father is hospitalised, she and Rhys return to Cardiff, and meet with Andy, for the first time since Children of Earth. Oswald is able to get himself paroled, and Rex travels to Wales when he realises a connection between Torchwood and the Miracle, just in time to see Jack save Gwen from an assassination attempt. Rex forces Jack and Gwen to accompany him back to America in a rendition, leading directly into Rendition.
Rex allows Rhys to stay in Wales with Anwen while he takes Jack and Gwen on a flight to America, but he and Esther are framed as traitors to the CIA by Brian Friedkin and forced on the run with Jack and Gwen after the CIA tries to kill Jack, who has lost his immortality due to the Miracle. Oswald is able to sway public opinion in his favour, and is approached by Jilly Kitzinger on behalf of PhiCorp to act as their representative.

Oswald learns that PhiCorp plans to lump him in with the "Category Zeros", and flees into hiding. Gwen is deported back to Wales by Shapiro. Rex and Esther help Jack flee from the CIA, but he is shot and left in a critical condition as Esther escapes with him, while Rex stays to work with the CIA.
Set two months after End of the Road. With Jack fully healed from his gunshot wound, he smuggles Oswald into Wales as he and Esther meet up with Gwen. With information provided by Oswald, the Torchwood team learn that the Blessing is linked to Shanghai and Buenos Aires. After Gwen's father is seized by the overflow camp, Ester meets up with Rex in Buenos Aires while Jack, Gwen and Oswald travel to Shanghai, leading directly into The Blood Line.
The Three Families' CIA mole, Charlotte Wills, causes an explosion that destroys Shapiro. Jack and Rex, who has had Jack's blood placed inside him, release the mortal blood back into the Blessing, ending the Miracle, but Esther is fatally wounded by the Three Families in an attempt the stop them.

The Doctor takes Liv, Helen, Tania, Andy and a stowaway Robin Bright-Thompson on the TARDIS' test flight, ending up on Earth in a future where humanity were wiped out before 6,000,000 AD, with Robin briefly being overpowered by a holo-system interface. According to Andy, Torchwood's dispersal during Thoughts and Prayers occurred "months ago". He admits to Tania that the reason he came to London was to lay low, and he has prior experience with time travel.

Andy visits an alien planet for the first time.
After sometime on Rarkellia investigating Divine Intervention, the Doctor decides to return to Baker Street after the TARDIS crew succeeded in driving Divine Intervention off the planet.
The Doctor goes from 2020 Baker Street to 2035 with Liv, Helen and Andy, and discovers the scope of Divine Intervention's reign if they are left unopposed. Liv and Andy see the 2035 Tania being killed, greatly upsetting them.
Having found the time when Divine Intervention would wipe out humanity, the Doctor, Liv, Helen and Andy discover that Robin, rendered unaging by the machines in Dead Time, is the leader of Divine Intervention, having been the the Doctor mentioned in The Long Way Round. Despite their best efforts to stop him, Robin uses a kill switch to kill every human at once, and Andy appears to die in a crashing spaceship, leading the Doctor to strand Robin on the deserted Earth as penance.
Set directly after What Just Happened?, with the Doctor deciding to travel back "months ago" to the evens of Dead Time to intercede Robin and try to change his future, with Helen coming along to talk him out of it. Accidentally recruiting the younger Tania on their quest, they are confronted by a Robin from further in his future known as "Mr. Bird". With their combined meddling causing reality to destabilise, Liv and Tania arrive on the scene to pass on a message on the fracturing state of the timeline, causing Bird to retreat while the Doctor uses the two Tanias to generate the Blinovitch Limitation Effect to stabilise time enough for the TARDIS crew to escape. Liv suggests that Tania should call Torchwood for help, but Tania reveals to Liv that Torchwood is gone.
Set immediately after Crossed Lines, with Tania recovering from the Blinovitch Limitation Effect. The Doctor decides to use the flexible state of time to rescue Andy from the spaceship, only to arrive after Mr. Bird rescues him, leading the Doctor to die on the spaceship instead. However, due to Andy returning to Baker Street with Bird's time travel device, Helen is able to prevent Andy's rescue by Bird and the Doctor's death by delaying Andy long enough for the Doctor to rescue them.
When his attempt to prevent the Bright-Thompson family from moving into Baker Street causes reality to collapse around 107 Baker Street, the Doctor and the Robin from What Just Happened? make peace as the Curator restores the true timeline, though the Baker Street residents find themselves in the middle of a pandemic and have to wait a year while the new timeline crystallises, leading into Best Year Ever.
