I’ve wrapped it in two soundscapes – one’s epic violins and soaring vocals Alex Doan’s ‘ Beyond the Horizon’ a heavier version of his ‘Between Mirrors’ . The other version has Kevin Macleod’s “Summer Rain”, which someone described as suitable for a samurai’s deathbed reflections. Here’s the first:

and the second

A Muse

The male muse – is he really just there for our female Doctor’s amusement? The brief for this episode was Terry get taken as a slave.

Poor Terry functions as the script writer’s male muse – what situation can he man-ouvre into that is a galactic mile away from his nuveau-hipster urban comfort zone. If you have watched Breaking Bad think ¬†Jessie Pinkman. Kudos to Michael for the taking the punches and the falls as well as delivering a very natural performance.


  • Narrator – Dian Smith
  • Doctor: ¬†¬†– Moira Seward
  • Terry: her companion a 20 something male earthling – Michael Rutter

The credit roll now also includes 3 robots from http://www.fromtexttospeech.com as the alien police Harry, Daisy and Emma, and i’m really rather in love with Harry ( English male voices – don’t ask. )

star wars cross-over

a while ago a story idea came to me, the synopsis is, there’s this rouge sith who’s moved to the outskirts of town on a far off world and suddenly the doctor turns up asking for directions or whatever when Jedi turn up to fight the sith on behalf for the towns people

new information

recently i talked about cross-overs with other Sci-fi series & movies and using copyrighted material from doctor who, and i have learned that theres a condition on copyright “time of use” and this can fall on a few villans, monsters & aliens that we could re-use we can not re-tell the story per-se, though it may be an option to do as long as its worth it, say a re-telling of celestial toymaker (for example), there has to be something elce going on as i said we cant re-tell a story exactly, we dont want to be repetive, nor copy (not even follow big finish exactly) so we have to have something new to do with the charictors we re-use, but other-wise we can use things as long as bbc arent or havent yet


alot of people have wanted to do some cross over stuff with doctor who like with star trek, star wars, comic books heros etc, well we have such a great opertunity to try and do some of these ideas, we already have a super herine story in the works, and a star trek story idea has been pitched to me where the doctor comes across a damaged and abandond 21st/22nd century ship

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 “őėő£”, 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.
