Episode 11 The Doctor and the Haunted house

Doctor 2
Doctor Two in blue

Try headphones – I’ve been mucking about with the stereo thing again. For this episode we return to Gallifrey right back to where it all began. I finally found a track for the Dr Two theme reminiscent of Murray Gold once again – amazing! BIG HUGE THANK YOU to Alex Doan for allowing  non-profits to use for FREE*. ( definitely please buy some of their stuff if you like our work and want to support us by supporting them – I do )

we can’t use clowns

In the lead up to designing the soundscape for this I was listening to a tutorial episode of the radio drama podcast, which was aimed more at the script level, saying how creepy kids are – and we have four of them in this episode yay. They also mention for extra creepiness use a dead kid! but its G rated so I decided to go for a Scooby Doo sort of feeling by mixing in cartoon style sounds to break up the epic music and dark drones. Particularly useful is the reprise of the Bensound track which Trevor used in episode one for the two young timelords **

Episode 10 The Doctor and the War on C.A.C. XI pt2

This episode should be listened to with headphones as I’m experimenting with a binaural effect for the explosions achieved by splitting the stereo track and shifting one channel of a stereo track ever so slightly off and sometimes duplicating the track in the center as well.

Spoiler alerts

The dynamic duo just got multiplied times two in this mirror effect story arc. The Doctor and Terry attempt to help Geldon prevent the ultimate catastrophe in the senseless war on CAC XI – will humans just never learn?

It’s all about gender in season two – we have a large cast now so although we still have mostly male villains we can pitch a few more female voices in alongside the Doctor and the Narrator but still have a nice balance. Here’s a male Dr and his Terri from a gender opposite whoniverse.

 

Doctor Two

rowena-d
Rowena Dinsmore

Call me slow but I’ve only just realised how much like a Disney Princess our doc is after re-editing episode 4 while listening to Emma Watson singing Belle’s song – you know they are both intelligent young ladies who are wanting so much more than their well meaning elders have planned. Which means the Timelady 2 really needs a nice BIG SONG!

Rowena Dinsmore has been the lovely voice of the Doctor for season one and continues until the climactic tenth episode in which Terry will meet Doctor Two played by the equally lovely Moira Seward.moira

Happily, being timetravellers, we get to hear Rowena as the child doctor for two further episodes.

Sooo about a timelady anthem – My pen has digitally dripped few teen angst style lyrics – nothing up to the mark of Halia Meguid who wrote/sang her way into Murray Gold’s soundscapes, but I am going to reach out to the Whoniverse and see what comes – perhaps someone will be inspired to theme the lady? Artwork for season two might require another request. She has a party outfit hinted at in episode 15.

and so she ran
eyes dark with tears
to find her friend
across the years

will you know me if faces change? say you you know me though times are strange

her heart beats shrill
love you me still?

Our epic Timelady’s Theme so far has been the Land of the Wizard by Per Kiilstofte at the 1:39 mark   https://machinimasound.com/?s=land+of+the+wizard

I’ve shortlisted 3 or 4 possible themes …choices choices ….worse than the wardrobe section of the Questr

grain of salt

so I got my monthly news letter from city park radio and on it states that upon confirmation the episodes will start on Sunday the 18th I want to strees about the fact that the confirmation has yet to happen, so take this with a grain of salt until confirmation

production values

when this goes to air i want people to realise how many hours we all put into it and understand that the production values that can be achieved by a community of volunteers ran program, the time constraits thre in and the fact that none of us have done this sort of production work before, so if something isn’t as good as what you think, be my guest to try and orginise your own episodes

mis-calculation

the NTFA leauge finishes on Sunday the 3rd of Sept this means we could possibly broudcast on Monday the 4th of Sept, how-ever it seems i mis-calculated on a post earlyer saying the latest we could go to air is Monday the 19th of Sept well its actuly Monday the 26th of Sept (1 week later/7 days)
