copyright issues

it has been said that what we are doing is illegal as it is a copyright issue, at our site we take BBC’s copyright seriously and I would like to assure everyone that we have sought legal advice, and since we are a not for profit volunteer community group and aren’t using the Daleks or other monsters from the TV series (this is why we want original script ideas only)  we can produce our fan series without breach of copyright

web casts

though we are recording with City Park Radio in Launceston we still don’t know if they will broadcast the series, if they chose not to we will still record with them, either way we will have internet web casts of each episode for the series’

Character info – The Doctor

The Doctor is a Time Lord from Gallifrey who travels through time and space with various companions in the obsolete and “borrowed” Type 40 time-machine, which appears to be a wooden 1950’s photo booth. Though largely a believer in non-violent conflict resolution, the Doctor has resorted to violence when absolutely necessary. also called Theta Sigma, informally Thete and occasionally spelt “ΘΣ”, was a nickname of the Doctor at the Time Lord Academy on Gallifrey. During the escape from Gallifrey the Doctor made off with the Hand of omega

the 1st Doctor, dose not consider to be, or act to be overly concerned or aware of all the dangers of traveling, the Dr just sees everything with a child-like sense of adventure, though the Dr is very smart and serious, the Dr can also be abrupt and brutally honest, the Dr’s favourite period  is the French revolution, the Dr also seems to have an interest in horse riding.
