The Eleven Doctors to Reunite?

Wednesday, June 24, 2009

The Mirror have stated that all Eleven Doctors will be appearing in a scene produced for this year's Children in Need due to air in November. An apparent insider said;

"This is a momentous episode for all Doctor Who fans. Never before have all the Doctors been in the same room, let alone in the same show. The script has already been started and it’s classic Doctor Who - really witty and very sharp. Viewers will see the Time Lords regenerating and emerging one by one from the TARDIS, each with their own quirky opening line."

This has not yet been confirmed by the BBC and is highly unlikely that this will happen as most of the classic Doctors are dead or they look different, and that just wouldn't work!

What are your thoughts on this?

Ebook Relaunch - Heroes of Time

Monday, June 22, 2009

I have come to my final decision, to re-release a previously published UDW eBook - Heroes of Time!

I first decided to write Heroes of Time a few months ago, as I though it would be cool idea to have a Doctor Who/Heroes crossover published as a story. You can view the brand new cover below.

This is the first in a series of Three or Five eBooks (I haven't come to a decision on that yet) with a second book being published this October.

It's only a short quick read, so don't expect a lot of pages! The Following is Important: This edition of Heroes of Time has an alternative ending to the previously published edition, so if you have read the first, you may as well read this as some changes have been made, especially at the end.

Daleks to Return?

Friday, June 12, 2009

Rumours have been circulating that the well known Doctor Who monsters, The Daleks, will be shouting their infamous war cry once more in the opener for Series 5 next year.

According to a tabloid,
"the Doctor will come face to face with his greatest enemy yet again when the series returns in 2010 with Matt Smith in the leading role as the eleventh incarnation of the Time Lord."

“They know fans will take a while to get used to Matt as the Doctor, so it makes sense to have him fight his most famous enemies,” a BBC source told the newspaper. “They always bring good ratings.”
Another rumour also states that the interior design for the Tardis will also be changed for Series 5.
