The Doctor Who fandom has a large and diverse cast of characters, so there are many potential ships. Due to the length of Doctor Who canon the naming conventions within the fandom has evolved over time.

Naming Conventions

In the past, Doctor Who tended to follow the convention of using virgules to denote pairings. Portmanteaus began to gain popularity in the New Who era partly due to the rise in popularity of Tumblr, which does not support the "/" symbol in tags.
