NOV 5/17: ANNOUNCING THE TIME DETECTIVES
The Doctor Who Project is pleased to announce their newest range of short-stories, The Time Detectives.

The Time Detectives is The Doctor Who Project's very first spin-off series and will be centering on Time Lady Grae, former companion to TDWPs Eighth Doctor.

On Gallifrey, there has been a revolution. Lord President Quella has been overthrown – having been seen as too weak on renegades. The new Lord President, a man named Restaar has risen up the ranks to be appointed. Having been recalled to Gallifrey by the new Lord President, Grae has been seen to have gotten off too easy from her “crime” of manipulating the time lines to bring her friend Tamara Scott back to life. She has been retried, found guilty, and sentenced to absorption – erasure from the timelines, past, present and future. While awaiting to be escorted to her death, she is abducted by a group of unknown Time Lords and taken to the head of the Celestial Intervention Agency, Coordinator Rosza and former Lord President Quella – and they charge her with a mission. In order to earn back her freedom, she must investigate the Cult of Antiquity.

Grae objects, but she is told that she has no choice - it’s this mission or her sentence will be carried out. Grae wants to work alone, but she is forced to work with Atrix Gavay, a con-man and smuggler for hire from a Earth colony named simply Flame’s Eye. Neither are happy working with each other, neither trust one another. Atrix and Grae's relationship is initially rocky, but over time they realize they must work together. Their relationship becomes one of mutual respect.

The CIA also provide Grae & Atrix with a refurbished Type 70 TARDIS, but it's not a fully operational model - there are no coordinate controls - only an operational Randomizer. The TARDIS can be dematerialized, but the two travellers have no control over where they go. Only the CIA knows.

Charged with investigating the Cult of Antiquity, over the course of their adventures, Grae and Atrix learn that there is more to the shadowy organization. There is a power behind the power, but who, or what, can it be? The cult's influence and power is far reaching. They have infiltrated many aspects of Time Lord life. Many Time Lords have become involved in the Cult - even Grae's sister Kaitha. How did the Cult evolve and come to power? Who or what is behind them? And, can Grae save her sister from their clutches?

Overseeing The Time Detectives will be Kyle Borcz as the series Range Editor. TDWP readers will know Kyle as the creator of Eighth Doctor companion, Grae; as well as having penned several TDWP stories (Blossom Core, The Tears of Rassilon, Snakecharmer) as Kyle Bastian. Kyle also served as an editor with TDWP covering Seasons 30 to 32.

The first 'season' of The Time Detectives will consist of four adventures with the first release appearing in 2018. The project will be accepting story proposals later this year.

OCT 28/17: RITES AND RESPONSIBILITIES DEBUTS
TDWP is pleased to make available for download the penultimate Season 41 story Rites and Responsibilities by Richard Hoover.

Civilizations rise and fall on the experiences that make them. So too do people. Change the past and a civilization may not rise. Change the past and a man’s destiny may not be fulfilled.

On a space station drifting among the remains of a dead planet, the Doctor and Hannah confront an alien scientist bent on destroying a race before it can even evolve. As events spiral out of control, Hannah finds herself whisked away to the world of the Time Lords. But not the world the Doctor knew.

Pursued by the Time Lords and avoiding a band of insurgents, Hannah’s only hope of returning to where she came from lies with a man who has no reason to aid her. Now Hannah must convince the Admin to change time in order to set the universe right and save the Doctor from a fate of walking death.

OCT 21/17: DOLCE MUSICA DELLA MORTE OUT NOW!
Season 41 continues with the sixth story of the season - Dolce Musica Della Morte by returning writer, Matthew James.

Europe, circa 1700, a beautiful treble voice sings a sad song. His voice is heavenly, like nothing heard by anyone before. People flock to hear him, thinking his voice is sure to break and not wanting to miss out before it does. But the boy never ages. The Doctor and Hannah arrive just as the singer's fame is spreading. They go to a recital but after hearing the alien music the Doctor realises the boy is not human.

In the meantime, people are reporting a creature prowling the streets at night.
Hannah sees it herself. Sightings follow the singer from city to city. For a while it seems to us that the boy and the creature may be one and the same, but in fact the creature is an Islogrib and hunting him for its own purposes.

The Doctor must stop the Islogrib and the parasite. But even he finds it impossible to fight the parasite's hypnotic control. Hannah is beneath the parasite’s radar, she can see it for what it is. Somehow she must find a way to destroy both creatures and free the Doctor.


Dolce Musica Della Morte is available to download free in PDF format which can be read on PCs, e-Readers and tablets.

When the Doctor and Hannah arrive for the first geology conference of the Eight Galaxies, they are soon drawn into the political frustrations between the MMC and the indigenous people.

While a hidden hand seems to help guide the Doctor and Hannah in the right direction, an old enemy is clawing its way back into the physical realm. The last time the Doctor faced the Eight-Legs, it cost him his life. Will he have to lose his life again, if he is to defeat them once more?

SATURDAY OCTOBER 14 2017


THE WEB OF INSANITY
by Ian Manning with J.E. Remy


The Doctor Who Project's Season 41 continues this Saturday, October 14, with the release of The Web of Insanity.

In this story, the Doctor is determined to help Hannah consider her aspirations of being a geologist in her future, and chooses to do so by bringing her to the future of geology. They arrive at the first geology conference of the Eight Galaxies, on the 26th century Pearl. The crystals of Pearl have psychotropic properties, which has drawn the attention of the Mercury Mining Company. Unfortunately for the indigenous species of Pearl—the avian Keer—who have experienced storms and earthquakes since the mining started, not to mention the Shades….

Hannah and the Doctor soon have the opportunity to see one of the blue crystals of Pearl… crystals that look suspiciously familiar to the Doctor. While the Doctor investigates the mining operations on the planet, Hannah joins the natives in a shamanistic ritual. She is nearly possessed by the shade of an eight-legged creature. The Eight-Legs have returned, and Pearl offers them the opportunity to return to physical realm.

The Doctor must face his fear, in order to prevent the ghost of the Great One from overtaking the physical plane. With Hannah’s help, he may be able to overcome his fears, but it will take more than their combined efforts to stop the Eight-Legs’ plan. It will require manipulating the timeline in a way the Doctor never expected. The last time they battled, it cost him his life. Will he have to lose his life again, if he is to defeat them once more?

The Web of Insanity will available to download free from The Doctor Who Project website in PDF format which can be read on your PC, e-Reader and/or tablet.

When Hannah discovers Oldfield’s wife Collette is tormented by visions of a violent man who somehow is and is not her husband, a nightmarish apparition roams the house after dark, and a strange woman stalks their every step, it becomes clear that Oldfield is here to escape his past.

DEBUTING SATURDAY OCTOBER 7 2017

PALIMPSEST
by Hamish Crawford


The Doctor takes Hannah to 1919 New Orleans, and not just to enjoy an oyster loaf. He is checking up on ‘Mr. Oldfield’, a retired Time Lord living in married seclusion in Tremé. Oldfield is a picture of carefree bonhomie, but his wife Collette’s barely concealed dread betrays that all is not as it seems.

The locals fear that the Oldfields’ house is haunted—and Hannah soon comes to believe it when a zombie-like travesty, seemingly incarnated from Collette’s nightmares, pursues them in the night. The Doctor, meanwhile, is dogged by a mysterious woman from another time, who has heard rumours of a devastating weapon hidden in this time period. These occurrences are all somehow connected to the seemingly benign Oldfield.

To uncover the truth, the Doctor must explore Oldfield’s memories, which expose the terrible price he paid for his present happiness—and the impossibility of escaping his past.

SEP 29/17: SEASON 41 THE SECRET OF PELADON
Season 41 continues today with the release of The Secret of Peladon by James P. Quick.

PREVIOUSLY ON THE DOCTOR WHO PROJECT

“I know just the place! Peladon!”

It was just supposed to be a return to some old stomping grounds for the Doctor, and a trip to wow Hannah (anything to avoid another trip to the Middle Ages). But what the TARDIS crew found was a dying monarch, a myriad amount of alien dignitaries, and two fighting twins. Reconnecting with his old friend Alpha Centauri, the Doctor intended to weather out the funeral and then beat a hasty retreat. Of course, nothing’s ever that simple with the Doctor.

Case in point, Thalaan, the younger twin, stormed the feast held in his father’s honor with a forged birth certificate stating he was the older twin, thereby usurping his brother Pelenat’s position as heir. With his twin now in league with the Ice Warriors, Pelenat was thrown into the dungeons. Upstairs, the Doctor, Hannah, Earth Ambassador Clivix, and Liasici Ambassador Jadescales have been confined to their rooms.

Due to a lying spy, Thalaan had the TARDIS thrown down the mountain, to the Doctor’s fury. In his bid to rip Thalaan a new one, he got himself, Hannah, Alpha Centauri, and Guard Captain Lorvis (Pelenat’s secret lover) exiled to the town at the bottom of the mountain, Pelnar-over-Essel. Once there, they were taken in by Lorvis’s family.

To prevent further meddling, H’skrr, the adjutant to the Ice Warrior ambassador, sent an assassin down to kill the Doctor, Hannah, and Alpha. But the assassin was murdered by a strange robot, whose attack caused the unfinished building the group was hiding in to collapse, apparently killing the Doctor and Alpha. Hannah, meanwhile, was carried off by the robot…

THE SECRET OF PELADON
by James P. Quick


Both the Doctor and Hannah are dead, crushed to death in a collapsing building – or that’s what they think of each other, at least.

However, now is an extremely bad time to be separated.

A mutiny is spreading through the Martian ranks and the Argolin and Mentor ambassadors are plotting to exterminate the Foamasi out of sheer greed.

With these plots in motion, the real threat remains unnoticed. A threat locked away in the trisilicate mines underneath the citadel. A threat with a secret. Why is there a second Thalaan?


The Secret of Peladon will available to download free from The Doctor Who Project website in PDF format which can be read on your PC, e-Reader and/or tablet.

The seconds are counting down.

The moment has been prepared for.

The time is upon us...

... as a new season of adventures for the Tenth Doctor and Hannah begin today.

Season 41 starts now!

It's September 23, 2017 and we have the first of seven new adventures, with the debut of The Throne of Peladon by James P. Quick. The Doctor and Hannah arrive on Peladon in the year 4100. King Pelleas is on death's door, the throne is nearly vacant, and Prince Pelenat, the King's rightful successor, is trying to prepare himself for the enormity of his imminent new position. However, his twin, Prince Thalaan, has recently taken a belligerent turn. He insists that the throne is his and is more than willing to fight dirty for it. As Thalaan incites a coup, attending dignitaries from the Galactic Federation begin to take sides. The Doctor and Hannah are soon caught in a mess that could rip both Peladon and the Federation apart at the seams.

SEP 19/17: DESIGN A NEW TDWP LOGO & WIN!
A quick reminder to all our readers not to forget to enter our Design A New TDWP Logo Contest

In 2018 The Doctor Who Project (TDWP) will be rebranding their Tenth Doctor story range as The Doctor Who Project New Adventures. As a result we’re going to need a new logo.

With that in mind, we thought we thought it would be a cool idea to have a little contest and open up the design submissions beyond the in-house stable of artists. This is where you’ll have a chance to show off your talents.

All you have to do is design us an appropriate logo, submit it via email it in either JPG or PNG format. If your design happens to be the one we like best, the winning designer will receive a TDWP prize pack.

The logo design should feature the full TDWP name featured somewhere above the New Adventures title as illustrated below:

THE DOCTOR WHO PROJECT
NEW ADVENTURES

Logos should be submitted as follows:

1. Hi-resolution image (300-400 dpi) in JPG or PNG format
2. Full color
3. Feature a clear, see-through background (as the logo will be used on websites and on book covers)

If your logo happens to be the winning design chosen, you’ll receive:
1. Full on-going credit for your design (on all future TDWPNA publications)
2. One copy of TDWP’s “Blossom Core: The Comic” by Kyle Borcz, Dan McDaid & Jon-Wesley Huff
3. One copy of the “TDWP Christmas Omnibus”

Designs should be submitted attached to an email sent to thedoctorwhoproject@shaw.ca. Please include your full name, age, country of residence and email address.

SEP 18/17: INVADERS FROM MARS?
Invaders from Mars? Not exactly.

The Doctor Who Project is merely seeing its first appearance of the Ice Warriors since Season 35’s Ogopogo (2008). The upcoming Season 41 stories The Throne of Peladon and The Secret of Peladon, however, writer James P. Quick takes a different approach.

“The lovely thing about the original Peladon story – perhaps not so much the second, but hey ho – is that it humanizes the Ice Warriors,” Quick said. “They’re not just lumbering, hissing juggernauts anymore. They are a genuine culture comprised of people.”

Ice Warriors first showed up in the appropriately-titled The Ice Warriors during Season 5 (1967). On that occasion, the Second Doctor (Patrick Troughton), Jamie McCrimmon (Frazer Hines), and Victoria Waterfield (Deborah Watling) defeated a group led by Varga (Bernard Bresslaw) at a glacial base. They later reappeared in Season 6’s The Seeds of Death (1969) and all later Peladon stories.

In this season's two Peladon stories, the lead Ice Warrior in the two-parter is a woman, named Efaxyr. However, you’d be hard-pressed to tell her gender if you looked at her.

“The Ice Warriors are reptiles. You show them being female in other ways,” Quick said, “not just slapping a pair of very human breasts on one and calling it a day. That’s lazy, quite frankly.”

The other main Ice Warrior in the tale is Efaxyr’s adjutant, H’skrr. The two characters are utilized to make a point about honor and loyalty, plus examining the state of Ice Warrior culture.

You can see the Ice Warriors in The Throne of Peladon and The Secret of Peladon, coming out September 23 and 30.

SEP 17/17: ALPHA CENTAURI RETURNS
The Doctor Who Project will feature a guest reappearance by everyone’s favorite hermaphrodite hexapod, Alpha Centauri, in the upcoming Peladon two-parter.

“Well, you can’t visit Peladon without Alpha Centauri showing up, can you!” said writer James P. Quick. “It was such a joy to write them into the story; the amount of natural humor that can be drawn from the character is a great boon.”

The character first appeared in the 1972 story The Curse of Peladon alongside the Third Doctor (Jon Pertwee) and Jo Grant (Katy Manning). Writer Brian Hayles portrayed the character as a neurotic worrywart, frequently worried that the Peladon conference would have to be cancelled.

The last time Alpha Centauri was seen relative to the TDWP continuity was in the Season 11 story The Monster of Peladon (1974). On that occasion, they appeared opposite the Third Doctor and Sarah Jane Smith (Elisabeth Sladen).

The Tenth Doctor (Laurent Meyer) refers to several other encounters since Monster in the story, including one involving the Eighth Doctor (Jeremy Banks-Walker) and the infamous-but-never-seen Terrible Zodin.

In the two-part story, the hexapod is portrayed as being in their twilight years. Their presence on Peladon is as a special ambassador from the Federation, being brought out of retirement specifically for the occasion.

“They’re perhaps a bit more ornery than they were on television. A bit more tired and of the opinion, ‘I’m old! I don’t have to take this!’” Quick said. “But I tried not to make them stray too far from their basic core.”

The Throne of Peladon kicks off Season 41 on September 23, and The Secret of Peladon follows the next week on September 30.

In 2018 The Doctor Who Project (TDWP) will be rebranding their Tenth Doctor story range as The Doctor Who Project New Adventures. As a result we’re going to need a new logo.

THE DOCTOR WHO PROJECT
NEW ADVENTURES


Logos should be submitted as follows:
1. Hi-resolution image (300-400 dpi) in JPG or PNG format
2. Full color
3. Feature a clear, see-through background (as the logo will be used on websites and on book covers)

If your logo happens to be the winning design chosen, you’ll receive:
1. Full on-going credit for your design (on all future TDWPNA publications)
2. One copy of TDWP’s “Blossom Core: The Comic” by Kyle Borcz, Dan McDaid & Jon-Wesley Huff

AUG 26/17: EDITORIAL BOARD CHANGES
This fall will see several changes to the TDWP Editorial Board beginning with Range Editor Bob Furnell who will be taking more of a backseat involvement in the day-to-day activities of TDWP. Bob will be spending more time concentrating on Pencil Tip Publishing but will continue to be involved in the upkeep of the TDWP website, blog and Twitter feed, along with the overall design and layout of the stories.

With Bob’s departure, the remaining board members will take over the day-to-day running. TDWP’s New Adventures range will be overseen by Jeremy Remy (Editor) and Ben Pocock (Assistant Editor), while Richard Peevers continues to oversee the Brief Encounters range.

In addition to the above, the Editorial Board is currently recruiting for a second Assistant Editor who will be working on both the New Adventures and Brief Encounters.
26 Aug 2017 by tdwp
AUG 18/17: FORTHCOMING FROM TDWP
In addition to all new season of adventures for the Tenth Doctor and Hannah beginning September 23rd, The Doctor Who Project has several other projects lined up for the rest of 2017 and well into 2018.

Coming in November will be an all new Brief Encounters story, If At First You Don’t Succeed, featuring the Fifth Doctor and companion Peri. This new BE is written by David Wallington (A Winter’s Tale).

Also scheduled for November release will be The Write Stuf, a special publication interviewing all of The Doctor Who Projects Editors and Assistant Editors covering the period from 1999 to 2017. Interviewed will be former editors Misha Lauenstein, Kyle Bastian, Tim Jones, Karen Goldenbaum, Terry Baker, Samantha Warner, Jez Strickley, and current editors Ben Pocock, Jeremy Remy and Richard Peevers. Also featured will be an interview with the TDWP’s original Art Editor John Swogger and an in-depth interview with Range Editor and Project Creator, Bob Furnell. The Write Stuff will be available free to TDWP readers in PDF format. A special limited-run print version will also be available.

The Editorial Board is currently looking at the feasibility of bring back a print version of the old Season Omnibus format for Season 41 – this would be the first omnibus published since the Season 32 Omnibus in 2007. The omnibus would bring together all the stories from the current season in one single volume. If you’d like to see the publication of a Season 41 Omnibus, please let the editors know your interest by sending a quick email to the main editorial address.

Don’t forget that copies are still available of the TDWP Christmas Omnibus and Blossom Core: The Comic.

The TDWP Christmas Omnibus brings together all seven Christmas Specials from 2007's "A Christmas Story" right up to 2016’s "The Night Before Christmas". Blossom Core: The Comic features the comic adaptation of the Season 29 story by Kyle Bastian, with artwork by Dan McDaid and Jon-Wesley Huff. Pick up a copy of one, or both, of these special publications before they go out of print. Details www.lulu.com/spotlight/bobf60.

And finally, TDWP is still looking for volunteers who would be interested in reviewing one of our various stories as part of the TDWP Read and Review Project. All that’s required is read a story, write a review of said story, and submit it to us. For more information, please visit the TDWP blog by clicking www,thedoctorwhoproject.wordpress.com/tdwp-read-review-project.

AUG 15/17: SEASON 41 DEBUTS SEPTEMBER 23!
The Doctor Who Project’s Tenth Doctor and Hannah Redfoot return in a season of seven all new adventures to be released weekly beginning September 23 2017.

Season 41 begins September 23 with The Throne of Peladon by James P. Quick, the first part of a two-part adventure which sees the Doctor and Hannah return to Peladon in the year 4100. King Pelleas is on death's door, the throne is nearly vacant, and Prince Pelenat, the King's rightful successor, is trying to prepare himself for the enormity of his imminent new position. However, his twin, Prince Thalaan, has recently taken a belligerent turn. He insists that the throne is his and is more than willing to fight dirty for it. As Thalaan incites a coup, attending dignitaries from the Galactic Federation begin to take sides. The Doctor and Hannah are soon caught in a mess that could rip both Peladon and the Federation apart at the seams.

Writers for the rest of the season include Hamish Crawford, Ian Manning, J.E. Remy, Matthew James, Richard Hoover and Nick Krohn. Two of the seasons writers – Matthew James (Ghost Ship, The Snow Maiden) and Richard Hoover (Where There’s Thunder) - have written previously for TDWP, while this is the first time for the other four.

The season continues with The Secret of Peladon (Sep 30), Palimpsest (Oct 7), Web of Insanity (Oct 14), Dolce Music Della Morte (Oct 21), Rights and Responsibilities (Oct 28) and Moondust (Nov 4).

“I’m really excited to see Season 41 finally released after several delays”, says Range Editor Bob Furnell. “It was quite upsetting to lose two writers from the original line-up due to illness, but what made things worst was the writer of the original season premiere dropped out, and then the writer of its replacement story had to pull out due to work commitments. We were really lucky when James Quick contacted us out of the blue looking to write for the project.”

Story covers were designed by Alex Lydiate, James Quick, John Swogger, Robert Pollock and Tom Denham.

Stories are available free to readers in easy-to-download PDF format which can be read on e-Readers and tablets as well as printed in hard copy.

AUG 12/17: TDWP STORIES TO 2019!
The Doctor Who Project is pleased to announce that they will continue to publish original fan written Doctor Who fiction until December 2019 through their Tenth Doctor and Brief Encounters ranges.

The Tenth Doctor range, featuring the Tenth Doctor and companion Hannah Redfoot, continues with an upcoming new season of six adventures - Season 41 - beginning September 2017. Season 41 will be followed with further new adventures for the Tenth Doctor and Hannah thoughout 2018/19, the first of which is scheduled for release in April 2018.

TDWP will be abandoning the 'season' format for stories at the conclusion of Season 41, at which time the Tenth Doctor stories will be rebranded The New Adventures and released on a 'as and when' schedule but with a guarantee of at least three new stories per year. Editor Jeremy Remy commented on the change saying, "I like the idea of shifting to an 'as and when' publication schedule. It makes lots of sense, makes scheduling stories a lot easier, and will be less pressure on the Editorial team."

TDWP will be opening submissions for the New Adventures sometime during August.

Along with the New Adventures line, TDWP will continue to publish stories featuring TV Doctors 1-7 and TDWP Doctors 8 & 9 through their Brief Encounters series. "I can't wait to share the stories we have in the BE pipeline," says editor Richard Peevers. "From tales featuring old enemies to ones taking the range into new and exciting places, I'm in awe of our writers creativity. When our readers get their hands on our latest adventures, I know they are going to be just as spellbound as I am!"

Forthcoming Brief Encounters include a Sixth Doctor and Peri adventure, If At First You Don't Succeed by David Wallington; the return of the First Doctor in the historical The Three Mariners by Michael Baxter; along with upcoming adventures featuring the Fifth and Seventh Doctors and TDWP's Ninth Doctor.

The Doctor Who Project will also be celebrating its 20th Anniversary in 2019, definitely marking TDWP with the accolade of fandom's longest continuous running fan fiction series. Range editor Bob Furnell confirmed that the occasion will be marked by something special, "yes, we're planning something special to mark the ocassion. What that will be, I can't say at this point, but it's definitely a milestone we intend on celebrating."

MAY 28/17: TDWP WELCOMES NEW BE EDITOR
The Doctor Who Project is pleased to announce the appointment of Richard Peevers as our new Brief Encounters EditoR. Richard will be responsible for editing and commission of stories for the range, as well as overseeing the day-to-day activities. Richard contacted us out of the blue to see if the position was still open, which it was. He submitted his credentials with the view to being considered for the post. All of us on the Editorial Board were quite impressed with his qualifications, so after exchanging a few emails and having several conversations, we decided to offer the post to Richard, who was thrilled to become part of the team.

Richard is a writer currently living in Los Angeles, California, although he is originally from England. Recent writing has appeared in Black-Hearted Magazine and Pocket Notes, among others. In his time, Richard has also been a professor of Ancient Greek, a German translator, and a manager at Apple. When he is not writing, Richard can be found visiting weird roadside attractions with his beautiful wife. It remains Richard’s firm belief that The Ambassadors of Death is the greatest Doctor Who story of all time.

All of us here at TDWP are excited to welcome Richard to the team, as we're sure all of readers will be as well.

Tenth Doctor Laurent Meyer has recently been squashing rumours talking about his future in Doctor Who. Meyer who has played the role since late-2010 told the Vancouver Sun that rumours of his departure are just that, rumours.

"I'm currently busy in the midst of filming Season 41. I have no plans to leave the series at this time, or anytime in the near future. Pure rumour. I don't know where you're getting your information from, but these stories are obviously just that [rumours]. I love playing this part, so why would I want to leave."

STORY 2: PALIMPSEST by Hamish Crawford
In 1919 New Orleans, the Doctor and Hannah visit Mr. Oldfield, a retired Time Lord who is married and content to live out his remaining centuries in a haunted house in Treme. When Hannah discovers Oldfield's wife Collette is tormented by visions of a violent man who somehow is and is not her husband, a nightmarish apparition roams the house after dark, and a strange woman stalks their every step, it becomes clear that Oldfield is here to escape his past. The Doctor must explore his friend's memories to uncover the truth.

STORY 4: DOLCE MUSICA DELLA MORTE by Matthew James
A boy who never grows old, surrounded by people ageing before their time. A monster glimpsed on the night streets, hunting for something. A force capable of destroying all life on Earth a force which the Doctor refuses to stop. Only Hannah can save the day - but then the monster gets her!

STORY 5: RIGHTS AND RESPONSIBILITIES by Richard Hoover
The Doctor is gone. Through the machinations of an alien scientist bent on changing time to revive his species at the expense of another. Stranded on the Doctor's home world, Hannah must escape the forces of the grand high Time Lords as well as those of a band of insurgents. More, she must convince one man - the Admin - to change time in order to set the universe right and save the Doctor from a fate of walking death.

STORY 7: MOONDUST by Nick Krohn
The tensions between the human and robotic populations of Lunar Colony L8 have become potentially explosive, and The Doctor and Hannah may be at the flashpoint. When a robotic citizen is murdered, The Doctor and Hannah become fugitives from the authorities after being wrongly accused of the crime. In the race to discover the true culprit, the Doctor, Hannah, and their new friends uncover a vast conspiracy that could topple the colony's government. When he is once again taken into custody, the Doctor must use the public broadcast of his trial for murder to uncover the true culprit before it becomes the public broadcast of his execution.

MAR 18/17: NEW FIRST DOCTOR BRIEF ENCOUNTER STORY
All of us here at TDWP are excited to release our latest BRIEF ENCOUNTER story, The Misshapen Planet by Chris McKeon featuring the First Doctor and companions Stephen and Dodo.

The TARDIS intercepts a distress signal traveling through time and the Doctor feels compelled to investigate. Tracing the call to a beautiful world, the Ship lands within a mysterious vessel; and soon the Doctor, Steven, and Dodo find themselves trapped in the sinister clutches of the Doctors old enemies, the Voord. And to make matters worse, there is also another TARDIS on board the Voord ship, a TARDIS with a Monk at its helm.

With Dodo and Steven held hostage, the Doctor is forced to assist his fellow time traveller in completing a dangerous task. But why has the Monk allied himself with the Voord? What is their bold, new intention? What is the strange object that lies at the bottom of the Ravine? And what sudden, terrifying illness has afflicted the Doctor?

The answer to these questions leads the Doctor straight into a catastrophe, which hits closer to home than he ever thought possible.

FEB 11/17: SHADOW AT THE HEART RELEASED
Just released is our latest Brief Encouters story, by Dan Tessier and James P. Quick.


They say that the atmosphere of Traken is so suffused with goodness that any evil that arrives there is sure to just shrivel up and die. They say its a paradise, matched by few, exceeded by none. Is it any wonder that other beings look upon it enviously as their own civilizations crumble? As refugees from the wider galaxy arrive, life on Traken begins to change. But what is behind this influx of aliens?


Nyssa has never left Traken, but she explores the universe every night from the safety of her grounds. Yet what she sees through her telescope tonight frightens her. Even the Keeper seems afraid of what is coming. What is happening to the stars? What has disturbed the balance of the cosmos?


As the Doctor fights tooth and nail against his own ship, Nyssa faces her own demons. There will be hard choices to make for both of them.


For Nyssa, Traken is the most wonderful place in the universe, but soon it could be the only place left



Shadow At The Heart features the Fifth Doctor and Nyssa and will be available to download free in PDF format on February 11th.

DEC 24/16: 'TIS THE NIGHT BEFORE CHRISTMAS
It's Christmas Time and The Doctor Who Project has an all new Christmas Special to share with you to celebrate the season. From the pen of longtime TDWP contributor, Craig Charlesworth, comes The Night Before Christmas featuring the Tenth Doctor and Hannah Redfoot.

Twas the night before Christmas, and all through the house not a creature was stirring...

Except the Doctor. And Hannah. Oh, and the evil alien Santa stalking them through the corridors. As the bodies pile up in a house riddled with secrets, the Doctor must find the killer before it's his turn. Meanwhile Hannah harbours a secret of her own that could destroy her relationship with her best friend.

Careful with that mistletoe. Stay well away from the plum pudding. And whatever you do, pray you don't find coal in your stocking. Because this is one Christmas when you really, really had better watch out...


The Night Before Christmas is free to download in PDF format.

Enjoy, and Merry Christmas to all of our readers.

DEC 3/16: TDWP CHRISTMAS OMNIBUS RELEASED
It's here, but for a very limited time. And now you can order your very own personal copy.

THE DOCTOR WHO PROJECT CHRISTMAS OMNIBUS

December 25th - Christmas Day.

A time of peace and harmony - of giving gifts, singing carols, and feasting on roast turkey and plum pudding; of sleigh bells, blankets of snow and ghost stories. Well, most of us anyway...

The Doctor doesnt have a great deal of luck at Christmas time.

The TARDIS arrives in the wilderness, bringing the Doctor and his grandchildren John and Gillian. The time travelers encounter Leah and are invited to take refreshment in her tent. The Doctor seems to know who she is.

NOV 22/16: 2016 CHRISTMAS SPECIAL
The Tenth Doctor and Hannah return December 24 2016 with an all new adventure for the Christmas season.

2016 CHRISTMAS SPECIAL
THE NIGHT BEFORE CHRISTMAS
by Craig Charlesworth


Twas the night before Christmas, and all through the house not a creature was stirring

Except the Doctor. And Hannah. Oh, and the evil alien Santa stalking them through the corridors. When the time travelers find themselves stranded and cut off by the snow they take refuge at a local house where they find a welcome as cool as the weather outside. And as the bodies pile up in a house riddled with secrets, the Doctor must find the killer before its his turn. Meanwhile Hannah harbors a secret of her own that could destroy her relationship with her best friend.

Why have Christmas decorations mysteriously appeared where there were none before? What horrors do the mysterious blackouts portend? And what IS going on with that Santa? As night falls and the house is cut off from rescue, the Doctor is the only one who can save those who live there. But do any of them deserve to be saved?

Careful with that mistletoe. Stay well away from the plum pudding. And whatever you do, pray you dont find coal in your stocking. Because this is one Christmas when you really, really had better watch out.

NOV 8/16: BLOSSOM CORE THE COMIC


In the vortex, the headquarters of the Celestial Intervention Agency drifts in and out of time, unreachable by everyone save a few elite Time Lords and the Operatives themselves. This covert group exists solely to manipulate the Time Lines and interfere where the Time Lords will not openly do so.

What if one of said elite was a traitor?

Operative-in-training Graekatziasa'asterus believes that her first mission with the Agency will be simple: halt the dimensional collapse of an antiquated Type 40 TARDIS last seen approaching the Decema system.

But what is the origin of the virus that has destroyed the TARDIS' imensional controls? And why would the Agency want her to lie to the Doctor about what system they're in?

The Doctor Who Project brings together the original story and the seldom seen comic of the highly popular Season 29 story "Blossom Core" in this special publication.

Join the Eighth Doctor, Grae and Tamara Scott in this exciting adventure.

NOV 7/16: JUST IN TIME FOR CHRISTMAS
THE TDWP CHRISTMAS OMNIBUS

December 25th Christmas Day.

A time of peace and harmony of giving gifts, singing carols, and feasting on roast turkey and plum pudding; of sleigh bells, blankets of snow and ghost stories. One brief ice-prickled glimmer in all those endless months of cold and dark, where the tree lights sparkle, all ill-will is forgotten and we can finally spend time with the ones we love.

Well, most of us anyway

Because the Doctor doesnt have a great deal of luck at Christmas time. Whether its helping to save a planet from the maniacal clutches of death-like aliens, or being haunted by a host of spectral Santas, if something bads going to happen, you can generally rely on the Doctor being in the thick of it. Like an ill-timed power cut during Christmas dinner, evil it seems, has little respect for the season of peace and good will

Come celebrate the season in glorious yuletide fashion with a series of festive tales from the sherry-and-mince-pie-addled minds of Craig Charlesworth, Samantha Warner, Karen Kalbacher, Duncan Johnson and Matthew James.

But dont get too comfortable though. Its a magical time of year; anything might happen I mean, its not supposed to snow inside the TARDIS is it?


This special 324 page publication brings together in one volume the following TDWP Christmas Specials

-A Christmas Story by Craig Charlesworth
-And The Child Shall Lead by Samantha Warner & Karen Kalbacher
-The Angel of the North: Part One by Duncan Johnson

OCT 15/16: SEASON 41 CHANGES
Since the last Season 41 update there have been several changes to the lineup. Due to unforeseen circumstances, two of our previously announced writers have had to drop out due to illness. Both The Cost of Cure (James T. Jeans) and The Curfew (Shane Isheev) are no longer part of Season 41. The Curfew has been rescheduled to Season 42, while were hoping to find a writer to complete The Cost of Cure.

We were quite saddened by the loss of two great stories, but over the years, all of us in TDWP have come to accept that a loss of stories is part of planning a season of new stories. As a result, weve had to rejig the season and accommodate the loss of two stories. While The Cost of Cure had been scheduled to open the season proper after the 2016 Christmas Special, in its place will now be The Golden City by Miles Reid-Lobatto, who readers will recall for such stories as Cybercult, The Vault and The White Death.

The revised Season 41 lineup will be:

STORY ONE: 2016 CHRISTMAS SPECIAL
THE NIGHT BEFORE CHRISTMAS
by Craig Charlesworth

STORY TWO
THE GOLDEN CITY
by Miles Reid-Lobatto

STORY THREE
PALIMPSEST
by Hamish Crawford

STORY FOUR
THE WEB OF INSANITY
by Ian Manning

STORY FIVE
DOLCE MUSICA DELLA MORTE
by Matthew James

STORY SIX
RIGHTS AND RESPONSIBILITIES
by Richard Hoover

STORY SEVEN
THE END OF DAYS
by Martin Broome

STORY EIGHT
MOONDUST
by Nick Krohn

Season 41 will be overseen by Bob Furnell, Jeremy Remy and Ben Pocock.

AUG 17/16: THE FAN FICTION PHENOMENOM
While searching through some old TDWP related files, we came across a fantastic article titled "The Fan Fiction Phenomenom" written by TDWPs own Jez Strickley. While the business of writing fan fiction is hardly a new development, it being the stock trade of many a science fiction fan with pen and paper and time in hand. In so far as Doctor Who fandom is concerned, this creative enterprise can become something of a grand affair, verging, in some cases, on the virtually impregnable world of professional writing.

In the article Jez talks about various fiction projects out there as well as talking about TDWP. It's a fascinating article we thought we'd bring to our fans attention, and one you might like to read.

JUN 17/16: SEASON 41 STORY ORDER CHANGED
Work continues on the forthcoming new season of stories from The Doctor Who Project. In the meantime, the Editorial Board has decided to make a small change in the story order since originally announced last month.

Following the Christmas Special, the season was originally to start with Palimpsest by Hamish Crawford and followed by The Cost of Cure by James T. Jeans to which we've decided to launch the season with The Cost of Cure, which will now be followed by Palimpsest. As Hamish's story is more of a character piece, it was felt that The Cost of Cure would be a better story to launch the season with.

The full line-up and information on the season is expected to be revealed any day now.

MAY 12/16: THE RETURN, NEW STORIES and SEASON 41
2014 was the end for The Doctor Who Project. After fifteen years of stories, it had been decided that the project would wrap up and publish one final season. This they did publishing Season 40 - The Final Season which included four stories by authors Krista Wilson, Matthew James, Miles Reid-Lobatto and John Swogger. On December 20, 2014, part two of the two-part adventure "Final Reckoning" by John Swogger was published. It was the end of an era - or so it was meant to be.

Jump ahead to late 2015. Bob, Jez and Jeremy had met up online to discuss the possibility of future Brief Encounters stories. It was during this chat, that Jez and Jeremy mentioned that they missed writing for the TDWP Tenth Doctor, which lead them to proposing to Bob the idea of doing an all new season of adventures featuring the Tenth Doctor and Hannah. Initially adamantly opposed to the idea, Bob wasn't interested in resurrecting the project. The odd Brief Encounter was fine, but he had no interest in doing any other stories. Jez and Jeremy were not about to give up on the idea and continued their attack. They wanted to see Hannah and the Tenth Doctor return. After an involved and lengthy discussion, Bob finally relented and agreed to resurrect the main range.

So it is with great pleasure that we announce that after a two-year break, The Doctor Who Project returns with a season of all new adventures in time and space featuring the Tenth Doctor and companion Hannah Redfoot.

Season 41 will feature nine new original stories from the talents of nine excellent authors. The season is set to debut in late 2016 with a Christmas Special followed by a full season in early 2017. The season sees stories by three returning TDWP authors and six authors contributing to the project for the very first time.

The Season 41 lineup will be:

STORY ONE: 2016 CHRISTMAS SPECIAL
THE NIGHT BEFORE CHRISTMAS
by Craig Charlesworth

STORY TWO
PALIMPSEST
by Hamish Crawford

STORY THREE
THE COST OF CURE
by James T. Jeans

STORY FOUR
THE WEB OF INSANIT
Y by Ian Manning

STORY FIVE
DOLCE MUSICA DELLA MORTE
by Matthew James

STORY SIX
RIGHTS AND RESPONSIBILITIES
by Richard Hoover

STORY SEVEN
THE END OF DAYS
by Martin Broome

STORY EIGHT
THE CURFEW
by Shane Isheev

STORY NINE
MOONDUSt
by Nick Krohn

The Doctor Who Project is also excited to the reveal that Season 41 will be followed by Season 42 in late 2017/early 2018.

MAY 12/16: EDITORIAL BOARD CHANGES
With the forthcoming season of new stories plus the on-going series of past Doctor adventures, The Doctor Who Project Editorial Board has seen an increase in its workload. After some discussion and review, it was decided to make a few changes to the existing board. As a result, we've created two new positions and reshuffled a few of our in-house personnel.

Effective May 12th, the Editorial Board will now consist of the following individuals:

Range Editor: Bob Furnell

Bob Furnell will continue to oversee The Doctor Who Project in general. Bob has overseen The Doctor Who Project since 1999 and was one of the projects main creators. Bob is the creator of companion Tamara Scott and the time-travelling cult, Section 13. To date, he's written six stories for the project including "Death of a Brigadier" and "Questions" with Jez Strickley.

Editor: Jeremy Remy

Jeremy Remy who took over as Editor in March 2016. Jeremy may be familiar to you as the author "Breathe" the second Doctor story featured in Pencil Tip Publishing's short fiction collection, The Temporal Logbook. Jeremy will be assisting with editing of the TDWP stories as well as being involved in the day to day running of TDWP.

Assistant Editor: Ben Pocock

When Jeremy assumed the Editor's post, this left the Assistant Editor's position vacant. After a brief search for a new Assistant Editor, we are pleased to announce the appointment of Ben Pocock who'll be assisting Jeremy in the day-to-day running of the TDWP Tenth Doctor and Hannah range of stories.

Ben brings a fresh new outlook to the project and has been a life-long Doctor Who fan. He spent his adolescence during the wilderness years of Doctor Who in the company of the Virgin adventures and Target novelizations - a relationship that has shaped his passion for literature to this day. He was the author behind The Telemacad, an adventure for the Third Doctor published as part of 2015s Temporal Logbook Anthology, among numerous other pieces including "Doctor Who and the Ghost Pirates", "The Holly Terror", and "Asylum", all of which have been produced by an amateur dramatics group, and countless short stories and scripts. He is currently working on his first novel due for publication later this year, a process that has filled him with a profoundly high regard for those who do so for a living!

When asked about joining TDWP, Ben replied, "It was one of my proudest moments to have been part of the Temporal Logbook, and to now be part of the team that produced it is a real thrill. In my experience, Doctor Who fans tend to be a creative bunch, but to be part of a team that has had such an impact on the world of fandom, producing a vast canon of professional quality stories over so many years, really is an honour. I'm very much looking forward to being part of the team, and I hope to do justice to the legacy of the range so far!"

Brief Encounters Editor: Kyle Bastian

Over the last two years we've seen a slight increase in the number of past Doctor stories published as part of the TDWP Brief Encounters range. The board felt that in order to better handle the running and overall editing of the range, that it would be advantageous to appoint a separate individual to oversee the range. As a result, after an absence of The Doctor Who Project is pleased to announce that Kyle Bastian is returning to the project to assume the role of the Brief Encounters Editor.

Kyle will be responsible for the editing and commissioning of stories for the range, as well as overseeing the day-to-day activities. Many of you who are long time fans of TDWP will be familiar with Kyle's name as he is the author of numerous TDWP adventures including the award-winning "Blossom Core". Kyle also served on the editorial board in various capacities from 2001-2006 and is the creator of popular 8th Doctor era companion, Grae.

When asked about his return to TDWP and Kyle commented, "I'm happy to be back at home at TDWP! and I'm looking forward to bringing our readers exciting new stories featuring the original seven Doctors."

Series Consultant: Jez Strickley

Jez has been involved with The Doctor Who Project since 2007 when he became a story reviewer. Since then, he has served as an assistant editor, editor and contributor penning several stories including "Spontaneous Combustion, Stromboli's Comet" and "Temporal Rendition".

Jez was promoted to the role of Editor for the Tenth Doctor and Hannah range in July 2015 after the departure of long-running editor Robert Mammone. Unfortunately due to Jez's increasingly heavy workload at his day job, he had to step back in February 2016 from the role and resumed his role as the Series Consultant, a role he held previously from 2010-2015.

TDWP centers on the continuing adventures of an alternate Tenth Doctor and his current travelling companion Hannah Redfoot. Stories are published as part of an overall season that concentrates on delivering a collection of short stories that sees the Doctor facing new and original situations in time and space.

Our stories have typically been in the 12,00045,000 word range and have featured elements from the original 1963-89 television series as well as original creations developed by our writers. Our stories are published as free downloadable PDF documents featuring a novel-like layout and specially created covers (designed by some of fandoms most talented artists).

Were doing a quasi-reboot of the series after a short break. Season 41 will feature 6 stories plus a Christmas Special. We are looking for imaginative, original and entertaining stories that see the Doctor and his companion travel and experience the wonders of the universe.

<*>provide your full name and email, and
<*>include a brief bio telling us a bit about yourself

**If this is your first time submitting a proposal to TDWP, please also include 2-3 samples of your writing.

You dont have to know a thing about TDWP, its history, or have read any or all of its past stories. It doesnt matter. Ignore it all.

Were merely looking for seven well written Doctor Who adventures. Besides, a good story is a good story and as long as you include our Tenth Doctor and companion Hannah in the story proposal, youre good to go. Its that simple. (Oh and dont worry, well make detailed biographies available to you on both characters, as well as photographic reference material to give you an idea what the characters look like.)

Story proposals and all requested material should be submitted as either a MS Word or PDF document attached to the body of an email.

Deadline for submitting proposals is: December 5, 2015
Submissions to: thedoctorwhoproject@shaw.ca

OCT 16/15: BRIEF ENCOUNTERS: THE TRAP - OUT 10-17-15
The Doctor Who Project is pleased to announce a brand new Brief Encounter story entitled "The Trap" by Steve Oliver.

This brand new exciting adventure in time and space features the Seventh Doctor and Ace. It is 2683 and the planet Njohuri is home to the Galactic Library, the greatest collection of information and data mankind has ever known.

The Doctors curiosity is piqued when the TARDIS receives a signal from the planet, so he and Ace set out to investigate. But something is wrong. Instead of the thriving city he expects to find, the surface of Njohuri is a desolate wasteland, devoid of any trace of civilisation.

The Doctor and Ace, thrown into an adventure across space and time, face off against mythic entities from Gallifreys ancient past, terrorists and an aggressive species of insectoid alien intent on conquering the galaxy.

The Trap is now available to download free in PDF format.

PDF documents can be uploaded to your PC or e-Reader for your reading pleasure.

Its 1832 and an eclipse of the sun brings more than just a celestial spectacle. As lightning falls, a young boy sees. The TARDIS has brought the Doctor, Jamie, and Zoe to a quaint countryside farm. But amid the rustic setting stands a colossal site. Four metal spires reaching to the sky. Parts of a device created by renowned scientists and rivals Michael Faraday and William Sturgeon. A device capable of harnessing devastating energies. What force has brought these men together? What is their great experiment? What secrets lie in the storm clouds gathering above? While Jamie and Zoe fend for themselves, the Doctor struggles to find the answers before his dreams become nightmares.

JUL 23/15: EDITORIAL BOARD CHANGES
There have been some recent changes to the Doctor Who Project Editorial Board over the past few months.

TDWP is sad to report that Editor Robert Mammone has decided to step down from the position to spend more time concentrating on his professional writing career. All of us at TDWP have enjoyed working with Rob and we're extremely sad to see him move on but we completely understand his reasons. TDWP Range Editor Bob Furnell commented, "Rob is both a brilliant writer and an excellent editor. He's been the glue to the project for the past several years. It's been a pleasure working with him these past few years."

Rob first joined TDWP as a writer in 2008 contributing "Dreadnought" for Season 35 and the Brief Encounter story "Fear The Dark" in 2009. He joined the Editorial Board as an Assistant Editor in 2011 and advanced to the position of Editor in January 2012 where he's overseen both the main TDWP and Brief Encounters ranges. Rob has written for publications like the British Fantasy Society, Pseudopod.org, Midnight Echo, April Moon Books, and Dark Minds Press. Everyone wishes Rob well in his future endeavours.

Taking over the vacant Editors post will be current Range Consultant Jez Strickley. Jez first joined TDWP back in 2006 as a Story Reviewer and eventually contributed his first story "The Wax Museum" in 2009 and has gone one to pen a further six stories to the project. Jez currently lives in Italy, where he has been teaching for more than ten years. TDWP Range Editor Bob Furnell commented, "I'm sad to see Rob go but at the same time I'm looking forward to continue working with Jez. Unfortunately this now leaves the Assistant Editor post vacant, which we hope to fill in the coming months."

JUL 23/15: BRAND NEW BRIEF ENCOUNTERS COMING SOON
Fans of THE DOCTOR WHO PROJECT will be excited to hear that we've got a brand new BRIEF ENCOUNTERS story coming soon featuring the Second Doctor, Jamie and Zoe.

Where There's Thunder
by Richard Hoover

Its 1832 and the TARDIS has brought the Doctor, Jamie, and Zoe to a quaint countryside farm. Not all is as it seems as Michael Faraday and William Sturgeon two greats in the field of electromagnetism have come together to create a device capable of harnessing devastating energies. But what force is manipulating the two men? And what is the great experiment? The answers can only be found in the dreams of a little boy and in the ominous storm clouds gathering overhead.

Where There's Thunder was originally submitted for consideration as part of the Temporal Logbook collection and one of the semi-finalist in the Second Doctor story category. While the story didn't make it for the Logbook we were so impressed with it that we approach Richard about publishing under the TDWP BE strand.

Keep tuned to our blog and website for updates and more details about this forthcoming story.

FEB 24/15: SEASON 40 STILL AVAILABLE
Just a quick reminder to all of our readers that all four stories from Season 40 are still available to download and read. If you havent read our most recent collection of stories yet, nows your chance to read them and enjoy.

STORY ONE: GHOST SHIP

A distress call, abruptly cut off, leads the Doctor, Val and Tom to ship where only a handful of people remain. Ghostly shapes prowl the corridors picking them off the survivors one by one. The Doctor discovers that the crew did not send the distress call and suspect him of being responsible for the disappearances. Then the TARDIS is taken. The Doctor is forced into desperate measures to track down the alien force behind the ghostly apparitions, find out who sent the distress call and explain the fact that although five people are supposed to be aboard, six life signs are registering

STORY TWO: CYBERCULT

Returning home to find their old friend, John Grantham missing, Tom and Vals only trace leads to The Church of the New Future, a modern-day psuedo-religion that focuses on purging mankind of their destructive impulses for a perfect future, and is finding great popularity in the disaffected youth of the world. In an attempt to get to the bottom of everything, the Doctor discovers that an old enemy of his has returned. The Cybermen are back, and this time, theyve brought religion. As the situation becomes desperate, Tom and Val themselves will make the greatest sacrifice of all in order to save the human race.

STORY THREE: FINAL RECKONING PART ONE

Forty million years ago, a creature known as The Emissary brought an Oracle to a Silurian city that would one day lie in ruins beneath the Devils Tower in Wyoming. Fifty million years later, on a colony ship known as the Arcadia, the Doctor and his new companion, Hannah Redfoot, arrive and immediately find themselves pursued by terrifying, genetically-altered reptilian creatures which the Doctor appears to partly recognise. In 2014, Liz Shaw, UNIT and a Silurian named Syrok attempt to unravel a mystery surrounding a failed mission from sixteen years earlier, which leads them to the catacombs beneath the Devils Tower. And in the white citadel aboard the Arcadia, the Doctor impossibly encounters not one, not two, but three incarnations of the Master

STORY FOUR: FINAL RECKONING PART TWO

After forty million years, The Oracle is awakening. On the Arcadia, Hannah and the Doctor barely escape with their lives and return to Earth, where they join forces with Liz Shaw and her team. But not is all as it seems. To what lengths will Liz Shaw go to save her species and planet? What is the true nature of the Oracle? And can the Doctor survive three incarnations of his direst enemy? A plan that began forty million years ago in the heat of the Silurian Empire threatens to destroy humanity and unleash a force greater than anything the universe has ever seen.

All 4 stories are available to download for free from the TDWP site in PDF format.

NOV 19/14: SEASON 40: THE FINAL SEASON
After fifteen years and over 110 original adventures, The Doctor Who Project, presents its final season of stories beginning Saturday November 29 2014.

While it's a time of celebration, it's also a time of sadness as we've decided that this will also be the appropriate time for the project to say farewell. To everything there is a season and while all things must come to an end, before we say our final farewell, The Doctor Who Project plans to go out with a bang and will be publishing its final season of stories.

SEASON 40: THE FINAL SEASON will feature four exciting new adventures with the Tenth Doctor. It will be a time to see old friends depart and a time to meet new friends. It will also be a time for the Doctor to face a final reckoning.

THE DOCTOR WHO PROJECT
SEASON 40: THE FINAL SEASON


To everything there is a season and a time for every purpose under heaven. A time to be born, a time to die. A time to kill, a time to heal. A time to laugh, a time to weep. To everything there is a reason and time to face a final reckoning.

SATURDAY NOVEMBER 29 2014
STORY ONE
Ghost Ship
by Krista Wilson & Matthew James

A distress call, abruptly cut off, leads the Doctor, Val and Tom to ship where only a handful of people remain. Ghostly shapes prowl the corridors picking them off the survivors one by one.

The Doctor discovers that the crew did not send the distress call and suspect him of being responsible for the disappearances. Then the TARDIS is taken. The Doctor is forced into desperate measures to track down the alien force behind the ghostly apparitions, find out who sent the distress call and explain the fact that although five people are supposed to be aboard, six life signs are registering


SATURDAY DECEMBER 6 2014
STORY TWO
Cybercult
by Miles Reid-Lobatto

Returning home to find their old friend, John Grantham missing, Tom and Val's only trace leads to The Church of the New Future, a modern-day psuedo-religion that focuses on purging mankind of their destructive impulses for a perfect future, and is finding great popularity in the disaffected youth of the world.

In an attempt to get to the bottom of everything, the Doctor discovers that an old enemy of his has returned. The Cybermen are back, and this time, they've brought religion. As the situation becomes desperate, Tom and Val themselves will make the greatest sacrifice of all in order to save the human race.


SATURDAY DECEMBER 13 2014
STORY THREE
Final Reckoning Part One
by John-Gordon Swogger

Forty million years ago, a creature known as The Emissary brought an Oracle to a Silurian city that would one day lie in ruins beneath the Devils Tower in Wyoming.

Fifty million years later, on a colony ship known as the Arcadia, the Doctor and his new companion, Hannah Redfoot, arrive and immediately find themselves pursued by terrifying, genetically-altered reptilian creatures which the Doctor appears to partly recognize.

In 2014, Liz Shaw, UNIT and a Silurian named Syrok attempt to unravel a mystery surrounding a failed mission from sixteen years earlier, which leads them to the catacombs beneath the Devils Tower.

And in the white citadel aboard the Arcadia, the Doctor - impossibly - encounters not one, not two, but three incarnations of the Master


SATURDAY DECEMBER 20 2014
STORY FOUR
Final Reckoning Part Two
by John-Gordon Swogger

After forty million years, The Oracle is awakening. On the Arcadia, Hannah and the Doctor barely escape with their lives and return to Earth, where they join forces with Liz Shaw and her team.

But not is all as it seems. To what lengths will Liz Shaw go to save her species and planet? What is the true nature of the Oracle? And can the Doctor survive three incarnations of his direst enemy?

A plan that began forty million years ago in the heat of the Silurian Empire threatens to destroy humanity and unleash a force greater than anything the universe has ever seen.

Join us beginning November 29th as The Doctor takes his final journey's in time and space.

It's been some time since our last update on the forthcoming final TDWP season, but rest assured dear readers, SEASON 40, is still very much happening. Things have been moving a little slower than usual but we're getting close to having all four stories ready for publication, which will mean that the season will be near at hand.


As previously announced, SEASON 40 will consist of four stories. They are:


Ghost Ship by Krista Wilson & Matthew James

Cybercult by Miles Reid-Lobatto

The Reckoning Part One by John-Gordon Swogger

The Reckoning Part Two by John-Gordon Swogger


The season will see the departure of long time companions Tom Brooker and Val Rossi with the arrival of all new companion, Hannah Redfoot.


We'll be releasing more details as we near the official season launch, so stay tuned to the TDWP site, blog and Facebook pages.

JUN 22/14: CHANGES TO SEASON 40 PREMIERE
Im happy to report that we got the first draft of the season 40 premiere story, Ghost Ship, this week, which is now with Rob being edited.

The story sees the TARDIS team responding to a distress signal. The Doctor and his companions find themselves on a medical emergency transport, but ghosts walk the halls of this abandoned ship and the TARDIS has disappeared.

The story was originally being written by Krista Wilson (Evolution) but sadly due to her university course load, Krista wasnt able to complete the story. For a while it looked like we might have lost the story, and Bob certainly didnt want to have to find another replacement for the season debut. In an attempt to save the story, Bob sent out a plea to all of TDWPs past writers to see if someone might be willing to take over the story. Luckily for TDWP, Matthew James (The Snow Maiden) stepped forth and volunteered to finish Ghost Ship. (Thank you Matthew!) As a result the story will now share a joint writing credit.

MAY 25/14: SEASON 40 UPDATE
Sorry things have been rather quiet around here of late, but there's not been a lot of TDWP news to report. I can tell you that I got back the edit of John Gordon Swogger's 2-part epic "The Reckoning" last week. Looks really good and I think you guys will be really excited by this story. Also waiting for the edit of Miles Reid-Lobatto's "Cybercult" and the first draft of "Ghost Ship" from Matthew James who's helping Krista Wilson complete the story. John will be doing the covers for all 3 stories and we've got a couple of special treats lined up for each story.

MAR 5/14: MEET NEW COMPANION HANNAH REDFOOT
MEET NEW COMPANION HANNAH REDFOOT

 photo HannahRedfoot3_zps0432d921.jpg

As previously revealed, the Doctor will be joined in his travels by new companion Hannah Redfoot in the Season 40 finale, The Final Reckoning by John-Gordon Swogger.

With the departure of Tom and Val, the last thing the Doctor wanted around is another travelling companion. He'd had enough of humans, and of someone always following him around, getting underfoot and being annoying. But... The Doctor strikes an immediate liking of Hannah and her boldness and even sees a little of himself in her. He first meets Hannah when she is working in the Devils Tower Nation Monument gift shop in Sundance Wyoming.

Hannah is a friendly young woman who is very conflicted about herself, her abilities and her future, like many young people today. Shes wrestling with her heritage all her life, her mother forced Hannah into taking part in Sioux ceremonies and traditions when all she wanted was to be like her friends at school. This caused a bit of a rift between Hannah and her mother, Mary. Her father John, the Crook County Sheriff, expressed an interest in letting his daughter experience more of the world. When her mother was diagnosed and eventually died from leukemia, Hannah drew inward part of her regretting that she wasnt what her mother hoped shed be. She completely turned against her heritage when her mother passed away, believing that it would be of no help to her, if it couldnt save her mother. Over the course of her adventures in the TARDIS, however, Hannah will come to realize the value of her heritage and the important role her background would have in her life.

Hannah is quite a fun person to be around. She enjoys cracking jokes, especially when presented with a tense situation. She is quite strong willed and hates being talked down to. Any attempts by people to teach something to her would be met with a little indignation.

THE NIGHT PARADE
By Duncan Johnson


Arriving in twenty-first century Kyoto the Doctor and Val investigate a photograph of a strangely mutated woman while Tom explores the citys nightlife. The Doctor and Val find the body of the woman, who has committed suicide, but as they leave they are attacked and become separated. Val wakes to find someone elses mouth in the back of her head and the Doctor finds his eyes have been removed.

Val meets more victims of the strange experiments whilst the Doctor encounters a strange Shinto priest. They discover that the alterations are the work of the children of the Daitengu, a race who have perfected the technique of dimensional surgery. Their cruel handiwork is revenge for the kidnapping and torture of one of their number by human children twenty years earlier.

In a power struggle amongst the Daitengu, the Amonazako is unleashed, a creature that corrupts reality. Tom finds the kidnapped Daitengu child and, with the Doctors help, reunites it with its fellows before the Amonazako is contained by the self-sacrifice of one of the Daitengu.

OCT 30/13: SEASON 39 STORY TWO
THE DOCTOR WHO PROJECT SEASON 39 continues on SATURDAY NOVEMBER 2 2013 with the second story of the season, THE SPICKSBURY HORROR by Jodie van de Wetering.

Based on an original storyline idea by Jeff Taylor, something spooky this way comes.

Spicksbury has long been stalked by death. An ancient ring of standing stones once pierced the valleys mists, and the locals knew to stay away. But later generations were not so wise; the circle was torn down to make way for an abbey, and later a church, but there was nothing Godly about what happened within those walls.

The TARDIS brings the Doctor, Val and Tom to Spicksbury in the 1920s, to join a team of young ghost hunters exploring derelict Spicksbury Manor. The grim old house has stood abandoned for years, plaster flaking from the walls and wood and velvet slowly crumbling to dust. Those years of lonely isolated would have provided ample opportunity for evil to move in had it not already been there before the first sod was turned.

With the walls of Spicksbury Manor crumbling, an ancient horror awakens and the ghost hunters become the hunted. Deep in the heart of the house, the Doctor discovers an old enemy has taken on a shocking new form.


THE SPICKSBURY HORROR will be available to download in PDF format on NOVEMBER 2nd.

AUG 27/13: VAL & TOM TO LEAVE
TDWP can now confirm that long-running companions Tom Brooker and Val Rossi will be departing in mid-season 40. There are plans to write the two companions out in an exciting and interesting way that might have fans reaching for a tissue or two.

Tom and Val were introduced to readers in the Season 37 story "The Wanderer" where they met the Ninth Doctor in an adventure that saw the three become involved in a race against time against an alien bounty hunter as they tried to find the missing Princess of Sparana Prime. Over the past 4 years they were witness to the regeneration of the Ninth Doctor into the Tenth, travelled to numerous worlds, met many an alien race and battled such foe as the Autons, the Great Intelligence, the Cybermen, Fomasi, Draconians and the Voord.

Over the last year we've also seen the two get closer together to share a unique bond between two friends. Will they get closer or will their last few exploits see the two driven apart. Only time will tell but before they do depart they'll finally get to encounter the dreaded Daleks in the Season 39 premiere story "Reverence of the Daleks".

AUG 26/13: EXCLUSIVE ANNOUNCEMENT FROM THE DOCTOR WHO PROJECT
EXCLUSIVE ANNOUNCEMENT FROM THE EDITORS OF THE DOCTOR WHO PROJECT

JANUARY 2014 will mark The Doctor Who Project's Fifteenth Anniversary.

However, while this marks a special milestone for TDWP after much consideration the Editors have decided that this will also be the appropriate time for the project to say farewell. After fifteen years of publication, we feel the time has come to bring TDWP to a conclusion and publish the last regular season for the foreseeable future.

Fifteen years is a landmark run in Doctor Who fan fiction and with this in mind, the editors felt that while TDWP is still publishing well-written, entertaining fiction this would be appropriate the time to bring the project to an end.

Even though TDWP may be ceasing publication, we're still going to celebrate this landmark by publishing one final season of adventures which will be known as SEASON 40: THE FINAL SEASON. The final season is scheduled for publication in early 2014.

Over the next few days, TDWP will be releasing further details about this season and about how interested writers will be able to contribute to the season.

The discovery of a mask in an ancient burial tomb in western Asia unleashes an alien force that could engulf pre-WW2 Europe and the world in a genocidal holocaust. When the Doctor, Val and Tom arrive in Venice in 1938, they stumble across the surviving members of the archaeological team that unearthed the mask. Soon, they are caught up in a wild chase as darkness spreads across the city. Can they survive a night that promises to spread its terrible darkness across the world?

THE VAULT by Miles Reid

The Vault - A secret Russian installation, dating back to the Second World War. A research facility built deep into a mountain, dedicated to the collection and study of extra-terrestrial technology that crashes behind the Iron Curtain. Even to the Russian Government, it doesn't exist. Its existence covered up since all contact was lost back in the 1970s. On behalf of an old friend, the Doctor, Tom and Val accompany a U.N.I.T research team to find the Vault and explore it. What they find, deep underground are the remnants of some of the darkest days of the Cold War. Secrets are revealed, crimes are uncovered. Deep in the Vault, there is no way out and they are not alone and not all of their team are to be trusted. Deep in the Vault, something is waking up.

SECOND LIFE by Kyle Bastian

A cell in Shada lays empty - Bramahl is back and is out for vengeance. With the help of both old friends and new, the Doctor must track his old enemy across the cosmos, before she begins a new reign of death and destruction.

SPONTANEOUS COMBUSTION by Jez Strickley

Travelling back to a quiet English backwater at the turn of the twentieth century, the Doctor decides to give Val and Tom a taste of the paranormal when they visit Quarr Manor, the location of a mysterious fire which saw the Georgian mansion burnt to the ground with not a trace of a survivor to be found. With just hours before the infamous fire is due to take place, the time travellers discover a sinister case of spontaneous human combustion in Quarrs rooftop observatory, sparking fears that a supernatural force is at work. Soon a terrible dilemma faces the trio, as the Doctor begins to realise that Quarrs fiery visitant is just one of the dreadful effects of a terrible space accident, which threatens to unleash a firestorm across the whole of the British Isles. Battling an anonymous threat which strikes without warning, the Doctor soon discovers that sometimes there is no good decision, as he faces the awful choice of sacrificing the few to save the many.

RED SHIFT by John Gordon

On the jungle world of Proteus, at the far edge of the galaxy, an archaeological expedition from the Hamilton Institute investigates an ancient tomb complex and its strange crystalline monument. But the Doctor, Tom and Val discover that there are more secrets on Proteus than those buried in the ground. What are the strange creatures that stalk the jungle after dark? Why have seven members of the expedition gone missing? And why can no one can remember them? As a devastating energy field begins to change the very world around them, Val and Tom become strangers to each other, and the Doctor uncovers a plot to steal the greatest prize of all.

APR 29/13: SEASON 39 NEWS ROUNDUP
TDWP will be celebrating Doctor Who's 50th Anniversary with our own 50th Anniversary story penned by Bob Furnell & Jez Strickley and tentively titled Fusion. This will be followed by the season finale Timebase penned by Daniel Tessier and Meg McDonald.

Weve received first drafts of Reflective Dissonance by Lynn Clark and Evolution by Krista Wilson which are now both with TDWP Editor Rob Mammone for editing. First drafts of Temple of the Serpent and Reverence of the Daleks have been returned to their respective authors with edits and we're currently awaiting the second drafts for these stories. Misha Lauensteins story was edited earlier this year and is currently with the author for revisions. Next up and due in June is the first draft of Lexicon by Will Hadcroft.

We've added Jodie van de Wetering's "The Spicksbury Horror" to the seasons lineup. This title might be familiar to some of our longterm readers who'll recall it was originally intended for publication a few years back. Sadly original author Jeff Taylor had to withdraw from the season at the time and this story sat unfinished for a few years. Range Editor Bob Furnell didn't want to see this story forgotten and with Jeff's blessing had long time TDWP contributor Jodie van de Wetering pick up where Jeff left off and finished the story.

Unfortunately due to personal reasons and professional committments, Ian Cai Mercer, who was penning Children of Chaos has had to drop out of the season.

We wish Ian all the best with his other projects and hope hell write for us sometime in the future.

APR 3/13: NOMINATE THE BEST TDWP STORIES OF 1999-2012
THE BEST OF TDWP 1999-2012 OMNIBUS

The Doctor Who Project (TDWP) is the multiple award winning Canadian fiction series based on the long-running BBC science-fiction television series Doctor Who. TDWP centers on the continuing adventures of an alternate Doctor and his companions. Stories are published as part of an overall season that concentrates on delivering a collection of short stories that sees the Doctor facing new and original situations in time and space. Beginning in 1999, and still publishing original fiction today. During the past 14 years, TDWP has published over 110 stories, and to celebrate, we have decided to publish a special collection containing what we consider to be the best stories published during this time. But, in order to do so, we need you, our fans, to help us pick the best stories published between 1999-2012.

What we need you to do is to pick a minimum of 5 stories, up to a maximum of 10 stories, that you feel are the best of the past 14 years. Rank these stories in order (e.g. 1,2,3, etc), and send your list of choices to us via email to jigsawpublications@yahoo.ca by April 15, 2013.

After we've received your nominations, we'll compile a list of the top stories as voted by you our readers and the top stories will be published in a special collection that we will publish in a hardcopy omnibus edition which we will make available later this year. (A portion of the proceeds from this publication will go towards our chosen charity, the British Columbia SPCA.)

It's all up to you! Tell us what you think are the best TDWP stories. Start the nominations.

Nomination Deadline: April 15, 2013
Send Entries To: jigsawpublications@yahoo.ca

What should be a thriving metropolis is inhabited solely by worker robots, locked into preprogrammed routines. With Peri still struggling to come to terms with the Doctors newly regenerated persona, together they investigate.

DEC 18/12: REACQUAINT YOURSELF WITH SEASON 38 THIS HOLIDAY SEASON


'Tis the season to be happy, jolly and gay and while you're busy finding the perfect present for that someone special and in between getting the turkey and all its trimmings ready for the big day, we here at The Doctor Who Project would like to remind you to take a little time for yourself during the holiday season. Amongst all that hustle and bustle you need to take a few moments away, so pour yourself a nice little drink whether it be a gin and tonic, a hot chocolate, or a nice hot cup of Earl Grey tea; find a quiet little corner in your home; curl up in that nice big comfy chair, and relax. And while you're taking a few minutes for yourself, its the perfect time to reacquaint yourself with the adventures of the Tenth Doctor, Val and Tom from Season 38.

* * * * *


THE MASK OF ANHUR by Robert Mammone

The discovery of a mask in an ancient burial tomb in western Asia unleashes an alien force that could engulf pre-WW2 Europe and the world in a genocidal holocaust. When the Doctor, Val and Tom arrive in Venice in 1938, they stumble across the surviving members of the archaeological team that unearthed the mask. Soon, they are caught up in a wild chase as darkness spreads across the city. Can they survive a night that promises to spread its terrible darkness across the world?

THE VAULT by Miles Reid

The Vault - A secret Russian installation, dating back to the Second World War. A research facility built deep into a mountain, dedicated to the collection and study of extra-terrestrial technology that crashes behind the Iron Curtain. Even to the Russian Government, it doesn't exist. Its existence covered up since all contact was lost back in the 1970s. On behalf of an old friend, the Doctor, Tom and Val accompany a U.N.I.T research team to find the Vault and explore it. What they find, deep underground are the remnants of some of the darkest days of the Cold War. Secrets are revealed, crimes are uncovered. Deep in the Vault, there is no way out and they are not alone and not all of their team are to be trusted. Deep in the Vault, something is waking up.

SECOND LIFE by Kyle Bastian

A cell in Shada lays empty - Bramahl is back and is out for vengeance. With the help of both old friends and new, the Doctor must track his old enemy across the cosmos, before she begins a new reign of death and destruction.

SPONTANEOUS COMBUSTION by Jez Strickley

Travelling back to a quiet English backwater at the turn of the twentieth century, the Doctor decides to give Val and Tom a taste of the paranormal when they visit Quarr Manor, the location of a mysterious fire which saw the Georgian mansion burnt to the ground with not a trace of a survivor to be found. With just hours before the infamous fire is due to take place, the time travellers discover a sinister case of spontaneous human combustion in Quarrs rooftop observatory, sparking fears that a supernatural force is at work. Soon a terrible dilemma faces the trio, as the Doctor begins to realise that Quarrs fiery visitant is just one of the dreadful effects of a terrible space accident, which threatens to unleash a firestorm across the whole of the British Isles. Battling an anonymous threat which strikes without warning, the Doctor soon discovers that sometimes there is no good decision, as he faces the awful choice of sacrificing the few to save the many.

RED SHIFT by John Gordon

On the jungle world of Proteus, at the far edge of the galaxy, an archaeological expedition from the Hamilton Institute investigates an ancient tomb complex and its strange crystalline monument. But the Doctor, Tom and Val discover that there are more secrets on Proteus than those buried in the ground. What are the strange creatures that stalk the jungle after dark? Why have seven members of the expedition gone missing? And why can no one can remember them? As a devastating energy field begins to change the very world around them, Val and Tom become strangers to each other, and the Doctor uncovers a plot to steal the greatest prize of all.

BLUE SHIFT by John Gordon

On the ocean world of Proteus, at the far edge of the galaxy, an archaeological expedition from the Hamilton Institute investigates an ancient tomb complex and its strange crystalline monument. But the Doctor, Tom and Val discover that there are more secrets on Proteus than those buried in the ground. What are the creatures that stalk the shoreline after dark? Why have seven members of the expedition gone missing? And why can't the Doctor shake off the strange feeling that he's done all this before?
It seems that on this ancient world, the past has not been properly buried - and when his own starts to catch up with him, the Doctor begins to suspect that it's all a question of memory...

2012 CHRISTMAS SPECIAL: THE SNOW MAIDEN by Matthew James

"There is something in the atmosphere above Earth. You cant see it or feel it, but it is waiting, counting the days, the hours waiting for Christmas"

Professor Ruby Tranter was a senior scientist working for the government finding new ways for mankind to survive in the 29th century. Now theyve retired her. She feels cheated and bitter. Her big regret is never having a child to love and which would inherit her work. Snow is falling inside the TARDIS. The Doctor realises someone is tampering with nature and sets off to stop them. Using illegal government research Ruby sets about making the perfect child in her laboratory and uses the snow to gather her data. Next day the snowmen built by the local children come to life and envelop them. The Doctor, Tom and Val must make Ruby stop her experiment so the real children can be freed. But there is a further consequence to Ruby's experiment even the Doctor did not expect.

DEC 9/12: 3 SEASON 39 STORY SPOTS OPEN
Work continues apace on TDWPs Season 39 for 2013, but I thought I'd let you know that we've had two (2) story spots come open. If you're a writer, and would be interested in writing for The Doctor Who Project, we'd like to hear from you.

From the original request for season 39 stories, here's some details of what we're looking for

It's been said numerous times over the years that Doctor Who has one of the most flexible formats on television. With a basic premise of a man from another planet that travels throughout all of time and space in a box that resembles a twentieth-century Police Public Phone Box, it can't get much simpler than that. One week the show can be a gothic horror, the next it can be a comedic satire, while the next it could be a base-under-siege story; the possibilities are endless. The series has fifty years of story-telling to celebrate and every adventure published since the series debut in 1963 has celebrated that brilliant format in their own special way.

With this in mind, The Doctor Who Project would like to invite you to join us in celebrating fifty years of Doctor Who in 2013. The Doctor Who Project will release seven new adventures that delve deep into the history of the television series; each story an all new and exciting adventure in their own right. [Editor Note: I should point out that the open spots encompass the season premiere and the fourth story of the season.]

We are accepting story proposals from writers who would like to celebrate the anniversary with us. The stories will be published on a monthly schedule. Each story will be a separate adventure that celebrates the best of Doctor Who - quirky stories, scary stories, adventure stories or straight up weird tales that engage and excite the reader.

The seven new adventures are to feature the TDWP Tenth Doctor and his current companions Val Rossi and Tom Brooker.

When submitting story proposals

Please feel free to be as detailed as possible. The more detailed a proposal, the more likely your story will be accepted for publication.
Proposals should be attached to an email in a MS Word or Rich Text Format document.
Proposals should include your full name and email contact.
Include a short paragraph telling us a little bit about yourself and your writing history. (It doesn't matter whether or not you've been published before.)
If this is the first time you are submitting a story proposal to us, please include one or two samples of your previously written work.

Please Note:

Do not submit a story idea featuring former companion(s) from the television series.
Be creative. Try to develop your own aliens, monsters, villains or foes.
Do not submit stories that have been previously published.
Do not use, or refer to any elements, continuity or creations from the Virgin or BBC novels, Doctor Who comic strips, the current BBC television series, the 1996 Doctor Who TV movie, the two 1960s Peter Cushing movies, or Big Finish audios. Any stories featuring any of these elements will be automatically rejected.
Any companions who may have died in the novels (e.g. Liz Shaw) are still alive. Any companion personality changes, (e.g. Ace in the Virgin novels), has not happened in the Doctor Who Project universe. That's not to say that these companions would not have changed in their time away from the Doctor, it's just that they should not have changed in the same way as in the novels/audios.

If you would like a copy of the full submission guidelines or have any questions, please email us at the email address below.

Deadline for story proposals is December 15, 2012.

Outlines can be sent to jigsawpublications(@)yahoo.ca.

OCT 27/12: SEASON 38 CONTINUES WITH SPONTANEOUS COMBUSTION
Season 38 continues with a brand new story entitled Spontaneous Combustion from the pen of Jez Strickley who readers will know from his previous contributions to the TDWP canon. In this brand new story...

Travelling back to a quiet English backwater at the turn of the twentieth century, the Doctor decides to give Val and Tom a taste of the paranormal when they visit Quarr Manor, the location of a mysterious fire which saw the Georgian mansion burnt to the ground with not a trace of a survivor to be found.

With just hours before the infamous fire is due to take place, the time travellers discover a sinister case of spontaneous human combustion in Quarrs rooftop observatory, sparking fears that a supernatural force is at work. Soon a terrible dilemma faces the trio, as the Doctor begins to realise that Quarrs fiery visitant is just one of the dreadful effects of a terrible space accident, which threatens to unleash a firestorm across the whole of the British Isles.

Battling an anonymous threat which strikes without warning, the Doctor soon discovers that sometimes there is no good decision, as he faces the awful choice of sacrificing the few to save the many.

He thought that would hold her. But he was wrong Bramahl has escaped and is out for blood. Along with Tom and Val, the Doctor must track down Bramahl, and their only clue is her successor from Section 13 Tamara Scott. But her life as a companion was erased... wasn't it?

On behalf of an old friend, the Doctor, Tom and Val accompany a U.N.I.T research team to find the Vault and explore it. What they find, deep underground are the remnants of some of the darkest days of the Cold War. Secrets are revealed, crimes are uncovered. Deep in the Vault, there is no way out and they are not alone and not all of their team are to be trusted. Deep in the Vault, something is waking up.

THE MASK OF ANHUR
Written by Robert Mammone


More than 3000 years ago an alien craft crash-landed in western Asia. A nomadic warlord, Anhur, licking his wounds after a resounding defeat, retrieves the mask from the dying pilot. Donning it, his mind is opened up to unparalleled power, which he uses to revive his campaign, making him overlord of a vast swathe of lands. Dead by the hand of a friend fearful of the mask's malign influence, the mask and its owner are buried, the tomb lost to history, until an two archaeologists, an Englishman, James Dunning and Austrian, Gerhard Doering, unearth it in 1938. Behind the scenes, a Nazi archaeologist, von Neurath, his mind full of arcane and occult knowledge he wants to harness to his foul ideology, waits in the shadows.

Soon, the archaeological team, abandoned, staggers back to civilisation, only to see one of its members tempted by the mask. Maddened, James Dunning kills himself. His widow, Alice, who had accompanied him on the expedition, and Doering flee to Venice, where a gang of thugs steals the mask from them. Aided by the Doctor, Val and Tom, they retreat to a hotel. There, the Doctor ponders the nature of the mask and realises its awful potential. While they rest, Val, mistaken for the Alice, is kidnapped by the von Neurath's thugs. Tom, the Doctor and the Doering desperately work to find Val, as the power of the mask begins to spread over the city.

The Doctor and the von Neurath engage in a final struggle for the mask atop the Tower of St. Mark. The mask is destroyed, and the threat vanishes. Mourning the dead, the Doering and the Alice leave for home, with the shadow of war dogging their thoughts and their steps. Sometime later, in London, the Alice welcomes the Doering and his family, as the shadows of war begin to race across Europe.

SEP 23/12: SEASON 38 LINEUP CHANGE
Sad news were afraid but weve had to make a few changes to the lineup for season 38. Unfortunately weve lost Daniel Tessiers Timebase due to the authors current schedule at his day job. Real life has a way of invading such fannish pursuits, and sadly Daniels current work load at his day job was prohibiting him the time to properly work on his story. The author didnt want to deliver a substandard story so both Daniel and TDWP decided that it would be for the best to pull the story for the time being, and to allow the author time to finish the story in a more leisurely manner. While the season may have lost the story, TDWP hasnt lost it completely as it will be published at a later date as a one off story. As a result of loosing Timebase weve decided to jiggle the lineup for the season which will now run as follows

Story 1 The Mask of Anhur by Robert Mammone
Story 2 The Vault by Miles Reid-Lobotto
Story 3 Second Life by Kyle Bastian
Story 4 Spontaneous Combustion by Jez Strickley
Story 5 Red Shift by John Swogger
Story 6 Blue Shift by John Swogger
2012 Christmas Special The Snow Maiden by Matthew James

Season 38 debuts Saturday October 6th.

SEP 8/12: BRAND NEW BRIEF ENCOUNTERS STORY
It's finally here. A brand new BRIEF ENCOUNTERS story. Canary In A Coal Mine is written by new TDWP writer Ian Wheeler, and features the Seventh Doctor and Ace.

Traveling through time is not without its hazards.

When the Doctor is forced to bring the TARDIS out of the space/time vortex, what should been a routine re-materialization goes horribly wrong. The time machine has materialised in a part of space already occupied by another object, and its all going to get rather messy.

As the TARDIS and the other vessel struggle to co-exist, strange things start to happen. Whilst the Doctor tries to control the situation in the console room, Ace must travel alone into the bowels of the TARDIS on a terrifying journey. Her deadly mission will challenge not only her own resolve but will test her friendship with the Doctor as it has never been tested before!

What is the other object? Can it destroy the TARDIS? Can the Time Lords friendship with his companion survive? And why is Ace turning into a dog?!

AUG 30/12: ANNOUNCING SEASON 39
While we continue to ready the forthcoming Season 38, all of us here at TDWP are pleased to reveal that there will be another season of brand new original Doctor Who adventures in 2013.

It's been said numerous times over the years that Doctor Who has one of the most flexible formats on television. With a basic premise of a man from another planet that travels throughout all of time and space in a box that resembles a twentieth-century Police Public Phone Box, it can't get much simpler than that. One week the show can be a gothic horror, the next it can be a comedic satire, while the next it could be a base-under-siege story; the possibilities are endless. The series has fifty years of story-telling to celebrate and every adventure published since the series debut in 1963 has celebrated that brilliant format in each of their special way.

With this in mind, The Doctor Who Project would like to invite you to join us in celebrating fifty years of Doctor Who in 2013. The Doctor Who Project will release eight new adventures that delve deep into the history of the television series; each story an all new and exciting adventure in their own right.

Beginning in March 2013 and leading up to TDWPs very own 50th Anniversary Special in November, TDWP will publish a brand new story that celebrates the legacy of Doctor Who.

REVERENCE OF THE DALEKS by Kevin Mullen
A group of three battle damaged Daleks are being worshipped as Gods by a warrior tribe. When the Doctor arrives investigating a mysterious distress signal his prejudice against his oldest enemy doesn't allow for the fact that for once, a greater good has come.

QUANTUM HEIST by Misha Lauenstein
Lixie Vanderhausen is getting the old gang together for one last casino heist, and just to make sure it's an even eleven, she's kidnapped the Doctor, Val and Tom. But who is Lavinia Morningwood?

THE TEMPLE OF THE SERPENT by Will Brooks
The planet Haltheoden - once home to a mighty civilisation, now reclaimed by nature. A quiet and peaceful world, with a darkness burning at its heart

AN UNCLEAR AND PRESENT DANGER by Greg Senger
The Doctor is summoned back to Gallifrey. Members of the High Council are turning up dead. Not all is as it appears, however

THE QUEEN'S NECKLACE by Duncan Johnson
A queen; a cardinal; a magician; an adventuress and a scandal that will shake a monarchy to its foundations.

REFLECTIVE DISSONANCE by Lynn Clark
It is whispered that, if you can see your own reflection, then they can see you as well.

CHILDREN OF CHAOS by Ian C Mercer
On Chaddington colony, evil once walked. The Hellstone must be shattered or the Children of Chaos will rise.

LEXICON by Will Hadcroft
An ancient book of fiction has now become gospel to the humble peasant people of Tarantonia.

THE 50th ANNIVERSARY STORY by TBA

AUG 17/12: SEASON 38 UPDATE
It's been a bit quiet on the Season 38 front for a few weeks but TDWP can assure readers that developments on each of the seasons stories continues to progress. You may recall in our last season update that both "The Mask of Anhur" by Robert Mammone and "Second Life" by Kyle Bastian have been edited and are ready for publication. In addition to these two stories, work continues on the remaining season 38 stories.

Miles Reid's "The Vault" has had its first draft edited and returned to the author for revisions and suggested changes, while Range Editor Bob Furnell continues to work on John Gordon's two-part adventure "Red Shift/Blue Shift".

A few weeks back we received a partial first draft of Jez Strickley's "Spontaneous Combustion" and TDWP Editor Rob Mammone confirms that this has been edited and returned to the author.

At time of posting we are still awaiting the first draft of "Timebase" by Daniel Tessier.

In addition to the above, we can confirm that we've made a slight modification to the season story order. "Spontaneous Combustion" will now be the sixth story of the season, while the two-part story, "Red Shift/Blue Shift" will be the fourth and fifth story respectively. This leaves the season order as follows:
