    @wolfweed I think hotlinking to that site may be disabled. How dare they!

    Hi!

    This might be borderline promotion (sorry if this is inapropriate) but you might like this clock for android.

    It’s loosly based on the design of Gallifreyan writing on the crib of the doctor.

    Not sure how I feel about this one. Think I’ve let myself get rusty, but here it is anyway… Sketch of I’m going to pin my colours to the mast and say the Ninth Doctor…

    Timeloop @timeloop

    I’m not sure where to post videos – it is kind of creativity? But also sums up some part of Doctor Who or underlines a certain part?

    Is this a good place to post them @craig ? Is there a better place? I don’t want to annoy people with videos where they do not expect them. But I do feel they are a special category. Should I hyperlink them so it dosen’t slow down browsers?

    Does the rest of you spend more time on pictures?

    Anyway here is the video I wanted to share. It is related to the Time War.

    @jimthefish. Excellent drawing of Doctor Zero. 🙂  I don’t think you are too rusty.

    Cheers

    Well, I’ve been trying since yesterday to get a message onto the ‘doctorwhosavetheday’ website but so far it’s not showing (it’s very likely that I’m doing it wrong).

    Anyway, here’s a link to the image of Clara that I sent them.

    @Shazzbot – thanks for the comments on my ‘Clara’ pic. It seems you appreciated it more than the BBC did – it’s still not on their website 😥

    wolfweed @wolfweed

    @fatmaninabox – Loving your fan art. I tried getting messages on ‘doctorwhosavetheday’ four times with no success.

    It was all innocuous stuff too. I wonder who actually decides what gets used or not?

    I’ve come to the conclusion that in order to get something accepted by the DOTD website, we’ll need to post some brain-dead comment like ‘Adric was ace, bring him back now!’ 😉 Creativity doesn’t seem to be high on their priority.

    Whinging over – going to bed – nighty night all.

    Yes, it is quite nice. Shame about the lack of Donna though 🙁  I think she maybe one of those ‘data-node thingummy-jigs’ from The Library but I can’t see it clearly enough to be certain.

    I think if you go to your profile and go to Settings > Notifications you can turn off

    “Send me an email when a member replies to an update or comment you’ve posted”

    If that doesn’t stop the emails let me know and I’ll look into it further.

    Hi, @engagedrwho.

    Hmmm… are you having all the forum messages sent to your e-mail account?

    I can help with any notifications:
    Go to your profile (your username at the top right – it should say ‘Howdy, engagedrwho’.
    Click on Edit My Profile.
    You should be in the Profile tab. Click on Settings.
    DO NOT press ‘Delete Account’ as accounts are not being re-opened until after the 23rd. Wait for @craig to sort things out. Instead, press ‘Notifications’.

    Once in ‘Notifications’ set all the ‘activity’ buttons to ‘no’. You can also set any PM’s to ‘no’ as well, and just check them on the Web.

    @craig @bluesqueakpip – I don’t think that’s it.  I have the option ticked ‘Yes’ for

    “Send me an email when a member replies to an update or comment you’ve posted”

    Yet I’ve never had any general thread updates at all; only where people have @ ‘d me (and when people comment on a blog posting I have created).

    PA/GEORGE SMITH

    1 INT TARDIS

    River Song and the Doctor are both in the main console room

    The Doctor is dancing around tardis console, maintaining, it pulling knobs and levers

    RIVER SONG
    So my love what was your reason for picking me up?

    THE DOCTOR
    Well maybe I thought it was time I called you for help

    RIVER SONG
    So do you need my help?

    THE DOCTOR
    Did I say that?

    RIVER SONG
    You implied it

    THE DOCTOR
    So is implying saying

    RIVER SONG
    So why am I here

    THE DOCTOR
    Maybe I just wanted to take you somewhere for the fun of it

    RIVER SONG
    And is that a question or a statement

    THE DOCTOR
    Well River, maybe that’s for you to figure out for yourself

    RIVER SONG
    So where are we going

    THE DOCTOR
    Or when? (The doctor grins)

    THE DOCTOR
    Well, how about somewhere wonderful, somewhere magical.

    RIVER SONG
    I wouldn’t accept anything less

    THE DOCTOR
    How about the 1851 London Worlds Fair

    RIVER SONG
    The Great Exhibition?

    THE DOCTOR
    Indeed (the Doctor slams a lever down and lands the tardis)

    THE DOCTOR
    Housed in George Jennings amazing Crystal palace, the first single cast iron frame piano, the first fax machine

    2 INT RECEPTION BBC TELEVISION CENTRE

    The tardis is situated between two sofas

    The Doctor bounds out mid flow of a conversation followed by River song

    THE DOCTOR
    And the worlds largest diamonds, don’t get any ideas

    RIVER SONG
    This isn’t the Crystal Palace

    THE DOCTOR
    No, right, yes this isn’t, must have flown off course, but where have we landed, looks like modernist earth interior, I’d say 1950’s in construction, seems like waiting room or reception, maybe for a hospital or factory.

    RIVER SONG
    Or a television studio (nods to a sign saying “BBC Television Centre”)

    Just then David Tennant walks in though the door, goes to the reception

    DAVID TENNANT
    Hello, I’m here for the special

    RECEPTIONIST
    Ok Mr Tennant just sign here and I’ll get your pass

    David turns rounds notices the Doctor, River Song and the police box and approach the Doctor

    DAVID TENNANT
    So you’re here too, Mr Smith

    THE DOCTOR
    Excuse me have we met, you look strangely familiar

    DAVID TENNANT
    What? we’ve met

    THE DOCTOR
    Mr Smith, John Smith

    DAVID TENNANT
    No, matt, are you screwing with me

    THE DOCTOR
    Who’s matt, are you matt?

    DAVID TENNANT
    No, ok, so who do you think you are?

    THE DOCTOR
    Yes excuse me, I haven’t formally introduced myself, I am the Doctor and this the lovely River Song.

    RIVER SONG
    At your service

    A moment of awkward silence with occasional grinning from all 3 before David cuts in

    DAVID TENNANT
    Ok Matt

    THE DOCTOR
    Who’s Matt?

    DAVID TENNANT
    Matt Smith, you’re Matt Smith

    THE DOCTOR
    My names the doctor

    DAVID TENNANT
    Have you gone completely mad, has the stress finally gotten to you, let it go?

    THE DOCTOR
    Let what go?

    DAVID TENNANT
    Actually, you know what, I’m still a bit annoyed for letting it happen, and you know what, if that’s what you need to straighten your head out (David slaps the Doctor hard round the face)

    THE DOCTOR
    What’s that for?

    DAVID TENNANT
    That’s for letting Doctor Who get cancelled

    CUTS TO OPENING CREDITS

    Title “THE DOCTOR GETS CANCELLED”

    THE DOCTOR
    What, do you mean who get cancelled? What does that even mean?

    David looks at River Song

    DAVID TENNANT
    Alex what is happening, why is Matt so crazy?

    River Song confronts David angrily

    RIVER SONG
    Why did you confront the Doctor I’ve a good mind too…

    RECEPTIONIST
    Sir, could you please move your blue box as it’s cluttering up are waiting area.

    THE DOCTOR
    Ok, ok, come on river, lets park it in the car park for now

    The Doctor and River Song both open the tardis and the door shuts behind them

    David watches as they and shakes head; he assumes they will walk out in a few minutes feeling silly

    The tardis dematerialise

    As it does David’s jaw drops

    He looks in shock at where the tardis had been for few moments and then turns to receptionist and says

    DAVID TENNANT
    Excuse me; did that blue box just dematiarallise?

    RECEPTIONIST
    Urr, yeah

    On hearing the answer, he stares for a moment at where the tardis had been again, first with terror then confusion then amazement and finally pure joy before exclaiming

    DAVID TENNANT
    Brilliant!

    David then runs out of reception to find the Doctor

    3 EXT CAR PARK OF BBC TELEVISION CENTRE

    The tardis has landed in an empty parking bay, door opens and the Doctor and River Song come out mid conversation.

    RIVER SONG
    So why have we stayed here when we could be at the Crystal Palace?

    THE DOCTOR
    I’m intrigued, there’s something out of place, not quite right, you know me

    RIVER SONG
    Indeed

    Just then David Tennant runs up, slightly out of breath

    RIVER SONG
    You!

    THE DOCTOR
    River!

    THE DOCTOR
    Hello, how can I help?

    DAVID TENNANT
    Your real, your actually real

    THE DOCTOR
    Always have been

    DAVID TENNANT
    You’re the Doctor? You have two hearts? You fly though space and time in a time machine disguised as a police box? You’re a Timelord from Galliphey? The last of the Timelords?

    THE DOCTOR
    Well yes, but how do you know so much about me? Have we meet before?

    David tennant
    No, you’re a fictitious character like Sherlock Holmes, or, Harry Potter.

    THE DOCTOR
    I assure you I am very real

    DAVID TENNANT
    I get that now

    David points to tardis

    DAVID TENNANT
    Any chance I could look inside?

    THE DOCTOR
    Of course

    he pushes at door and it opens, David peers inside in his eyes light up, staggers back.

    DAVID TENNANT
    This is impossible

    THE DOCTOR
    Nothing is impossible just…

    DAVID AND THE DOCTOR END TOGETHER
    Highly improbable

    Both laugh

    THE DOCTOR
    So why do you think I’m fictitious?

    DAVID TENNANT
    There’s a TV show made here, it’s about you, the Doctor and his adventures, it’s called Doctor Who

    THE DOCTOR
    Doctor Who? Doctor Who? And you’re a fan?

    DAVID TENNANT
    I played you, well before you regenerated

    THE DOCTOR
    Regenerated, they know I regenerate? How would anyone now so much?

    DAVID TENNANT
    I don’t know, until today I thought you weren’t real

    THE DOCTOR
    So who created this Doctor Who programme and when?

    DAVID TENNANT
    Well 50 years ago by a man called Sydney Newman

    THE DOCTOR
    Newman? Newman? That rings a bell; do you have any pictures of him?

    DAVID TENNANT
    Well, I’m sure I’ll be able to find something through the internet on my phone

    Gets his Iphone out and starts fumble though it to find the image, after a moment he finds something.

    DAVID TENNANT
    Ah, here we go

    Hands phone to the doctor

    The doctor laughs upon looking at the image

    THE DOCTOR
    Aha, the Newmag the old devil, a Timelord as mischievous as me and a dear friend, he must have landed on earth and decided to base a TV series on me, well we must stop this series, I can’t go round with people thinking I’m the character from a TV series.

    DAVID TENNANT
    Will you don’t have to worry about that, Doctor Who has been cancelled

    THE DOCTOR
    By whom?

    DAVID TENNANT
    By the new controller the BBC, part of has new strategy

    THE DOCTOR
    New strategy hey?

    DAVID TENNANT
    Yes, he’s cancelled all drama series and replaced them all by programmes about making money, it’s wall to wall property development shows and Cash in the Attic, they’ve even for kids TV, Blue Peter’s been replaced by a show teaching how to make money on the stock market, everyone’s complaining about it.

    The Doctor looks to River Song

    THE DOCTOR
    See river I said something’s out of place

    RIVER SONG
    Ok

    Just then a daimler pulls up and parks in bay opposite

    DAVID TENNANT
    Speak of the devil

    Man gets out the car and walk past the three of them to get into the building. As he walks the Doctor we see the Doctor sniff a few times.

    The Doctor waits till the man is out of ear shot

    THE DOCTOR
    That mans not a man

    RIVER SONG
    What you mean, not human

    THE DOCTOR
    Yes, Do you know him? (Asks David)

    DAVID TENNANT
    Will yes, he’s the new controller of the BBC, what are you saying?

    THE DOCTOR
    I’m saying the new controller of the BBC is an alien!

    END OF PART 1

    TO BE CONTINUED……

    PART 2

    4 INT RECEPTION OF BBC TELEVISION CENTRE

    The Doctor and River Song are briskly walking back in through the revolving doors of the reception followed by David Tennant, they are all in mid conversation as they do so

    DAVID TENNANT
    So why has alien come to earth and become head of the BBC?

    THE DOCTOR
    I don’t know

    RIVER SONG
    It doesn’t bode well though

    THE DOCTOR
    Precisely, usually some alien tyrant with a plan to try to use Earth as a stepping stone to take over the universe, question is, what is his plan, or in hers, could be a woman, women can be tyrants too you know

    RIVER SONG
    Certainly

    THE DOCTOR
    Indeed

    RIVER SONG
    So what’s your plan?

    THE DOCTOR
    Well, I say we pay this controller a little visit

    DAVID TENNANT
    What about me

    THE DOCTOR
    You can’t come, you’re not useful

    RECEPTIONIST
    Excuse me; you two can’t go any further

    DAVID TENNANT
    They’re with me

    RECEPTIONIST
    Okay Mr tennant

    THE DOCTOR
    You’re coming with us, you’re useful

    As they walk off we pass across a TV, it is playing an ad for a new show
    Brian Cox is in head and shoulders talking at the screen

    BRIAN COX
    Space is a cold dark place with no beauty to it, it has nothing compared the wonders down here on earth, such as the stock exchange.

    Title comes up “Brian Cox’s Wonders of the Stock Exchange” “Coming soon to BBC 1”

    5 INT CONTROLLER’S PA’S OFFICE

    Plush modern office, to the right a black leather sofa and coffee table, to the left a desk where the controllers male PA sits. Between them are frosted glass doors with “BBC Controller” on; pictures of BBC shows adorn the wall.

    The controller enters from corridor

    CONTROLLER
    Afternoon George, any appointments for the rest of the day?

    PA
    No sir

    CONTROLLER
    Good, make sure I’m not disturbed for the rest of the day

    The controller proceeds to his office

    6 INT CONTROLLERS OFFICE

    A modern lavish office a desk dominates the room behind the desk is a stylised map of the world.

    The controller enters the room and the door closes

    We hear a gaseous noise like air escaping a tyre

    We see fleeting glances in close up of a blue slightly reptilian figure

    CONTROLLER
    Open screen

    The map behind the desk opens up to reveal a screen in static

    CONTROLLER
    Mantis to ship 1, mantis to ship 1

    Image fades out of static is a video phone to a space ship

    We continue to see fleeting glances the room and the figure and the screen as the conversation continues.

    ALIEN
    What is your progress?

    CONTROLLER
    Everything is on track, the re-educational process is in full swing, and I have started reproduction process

    ALIEN
    Good, we are moving closer slowly

    The controller hears something outside

    CONTROLLER
    Sorry I have to go

    7 INT CONTROLLER’S PA’S OFFICE

    The Doctor, River Song and David Tennant are arguing with the controller’s PA

    PA
    Look, he has asked not to be disturbed for the rest of the day, and I’m not letting a bunch of disgruntled actors disturb his peace.

    THE DOCTOR
    (Gets close) look … (gestured to get PA’s name)

    PA
    George Smith

    THE DOCTOR
    (To river song) what is it with Smith today?

    THE DOCTOR
    (Says intimately) Look, George, we just need to check his office for parasites There’s been an infestation in the area.

    Both smile

    PA
    (Smile fades) you can’t speck to him matt

    The Doctor becomes frustrated

    RIVER SONG
    Leave this to me sweetie

    River applies lipstick to her lips

    PA
    Nothing you say will make any difference

    RIVER SONG
    Ough, I won’t say anything

    River moves towards the pa

    8 INT THE CONTROLLER OFFICE

    The door flies open to reveal the Doctor River Song and David Tennant, the controller is sitting at his desk

    THE DOCTOR
    Sorry to disturb you, Pest Control, we have had parasitic infestations in the area and I just need to check your office to for signs of infestations

    CONTROLLER
    I know you, you’re actors

    THE DOCTOR
    No were not, well he is (gestures at David Tennant)

    CONTROLLER
    No, I cancelled your show

    THE DOCTOR
    As I said Pest Control, so who are you?

    CONTROLLER
    I’m the new controller of the BBC

    THE DOCTOR
    No, you’re an alien I can smell you, what are you?

    CONTROLLER
    (Stands up) George, call security!

    RIVER SONG
    Ough, George can’t help you

    We see the PA sat at his desk looking in a dream

    PA
    How can I help you Mr de niro (looking into empty space)

    DAVID TENNANT
    I can’t believe you actually have hallucinogenic lipstick

    RIVER SONG
    It comes in handy

    THE DOCTOR
    So, there you are, hiding behind human flesh, but you’re not human, but how? And what are you?

    DAVID TENNANT
    A shimmer?

    THE DOCTOR
    What?

    DAVID TENNANT
    A shimmer, an alien disguise

    THE DOCTOR
    Yes exactly, but a shimmer? Why would anyone call it that, a shimmer? Where did you get a name like that?

    DAVID TENNANT
    End of time?

    THE DOCTOR
    A shimmer? A shimmer?

    THE DOCTOR
    I digress, so, what alien are you disguised in plain sight, delanee, a dergathy maybe kalixion, no, too tall plus where would you hide the horn

    CONTROLLER
    Who are you?

    THE DOCTOR
    Pest Control, as I said

    CONTROLLER
    No, you’re alien too

    THE DOCTOR
    Well takes one to know one

    CONTROLLER
    Exactly

    THE DOCTOR
    Ha! So you admit it

    CONTROLLER
    Well

    THE DOCTOR
    Who are you I demand you show yourself!

    CONTROLLER
    Well okay

    A gaseous goo escapes from the pours of the skin of the man, eventually skin falls away to reveal a gaseous 7-foot tall blue reptilian alien

    The Doctor grins

    THE DOCTOR
    I know your race, but how can you be here, your home world is in furthest depths of the universe

    CONTROLLER
    Yes

    RIVER SONG
    What is he?

    THE DOCTOR
    Kullarthians, they’re nicknamed ego snares and idea smith’s, they gain substance by spreading ideas.

    DAVID TENNANT
    Gain substance with ideas?

    THE DOCTOR
    Yes they spread rumours, sway opinion, the mind is a powerful force the most powerful in the universe. They have an ability to feed on that and feed it into the people they influence

    DAVID TENNANT
    So why become head of the BBC?

    THE DOCTOR
    Control

    DAVID TENNANT
    So why the BBC? I jest

    THE DOCTOR
    So you’re controlling the BBC, stopping programmes being made that inspire, but why, what influence could you possibly have on the world controlling just one channel.

    THE DOCTOR
    Wait a minute, you’re pregnant

    RIVER SONG
    Sorry

    THE DOCTOR
    Not you River, he’s pregnant

    CONTROLLER
    Yes

    THE DOCTOR
    You see river and, what is your name

    DAVID TENNANT
    David

    THE DOCTOR
    That’s not important, you see Kullarthians have an interesting birth cycle, they produce perfect copies of themselves down to brainwave patterns and even memories, kind of a natural Clone, usually in batches oF 10 or 20, oh very clever, one man controlling the world

    RIVER SONG
    What do you mean?

    CONTROLLER
    Soon I’ll move my sons to the top of every TV channel in the world, CNN, FOX, RT, Al Jazeera

    THE DOCTOR
    You’re going to kill off a whole generation of dreamers, but to what end, it’s just you

    CONTROLLER
    I’m just the advanced guard, open screen

    The map behind the desk opens up to revel a screen showing tracking of ships

    THE DOCTOR
    (Looks distressed) There must at 100

    DAVID TENNANT
    100 what?

    THE DOCTOR
    Kullarthian battle cruisers each crewed by 10 thousand Kullarthian warriors, but from that distance it would take a hundred years to get to Earth.

    CONTROLLER
    Just enough time

    THE DOCTOR
    Of course

    RIVER SONG
    What is it?

    THE DOCTOR
    He’s suppressing this society for invasion. All the thinkers, the dreamers, the ideas people are being encouraged to make money not develop ideas and dare to dream and he’s using television to suppress society.

    DAVID TENNANT
    But why?

    THE DOCTOR
    Don’t you understand it’s the dreamers that are behind all human developments you kill off the dreamers, humanity stagnates, they don’t develop, and they’re ripe for the picking.

    CONTROLLER
    Exactly, well now you know my plans I can’t possibly let you leave this room alive

    The alien raises his hand and a bolt or energy starts to form in his hand

    RIVER SONG
    Doctor!!

    The Controller staggers and freezes on hearing the name

    CONTROLLER
    The Doctor, you, are, the Doctor.

    THE DOCTOR
    Yes I am, why?

    RIVER SONG
    Doctor what happening to him.

    THE DOCTOR
    I’m not sure, he seems to paralysed by the idea of me

    DAVID TENNANT
    Of course

    THE DOCTOR
    Of course what?

    DAVID TENNANT
    You said he feeds off ideas?

    THE DOCTOR
    Yes

    DAVID TENNANT
    Then you’re his opposing force, a manifested idea, a real person turned into an idea.

    THE DOCTOR
    The show

    DAVID TENNANT
    Yes

    THE DOCTOR
    Well that’s all very well but we need to spread the idea, (at the controller who is now on his knees) earth is not for taking.

    CONTROLLER
    You can’t stop it

    THE DOCTOR
    So your not even going to give up now, well I have to stop you, somehow

    DAVID TENNANT
    (Looks at his clock) the Special, of course, Doctor, I think know I exactly how to defeat has plan.

    THE DOCTOR
    And how would that be?

    DAVID TENNANT
    Right now there’s a live special being filmed in studio 7 to commemorate the last Doctor Who and the 50th anniversary. It’s being broadcast throughout the world on all BBC network channels to a possible billion viewers, that’s a way to spread an idea

    THE DOCTOR
    Brilliant!

    DAVID TENNANT
    Hey, I say that

    THE DOCTOR
    Ok lets go, River you watch him, I think it’s time for my close up

    The Doctor run out of the room leaving River Song to watch the controller

    9 INT TV STUDIOS

    Studio set with audience. The set space is adorned with past Doctor Who props including the tardis. In the centre of the stage is a large screen with “Goodbye Doctor Who” on it. Below that sat on stylish chairs, Steven Moffat and a host of behind the scene people from Doctor Who past.

    There is an air of akwardnees in the studio

    Richard Bacon is stood with a mike taking questions from the audience.

    STEVEN MOFFAT
    Well it has been an absolute pleasure to be a part of it and so sad to see it end, but things move on, but It’s worth remembering this isn’t the first time the show’s been cancelled so you never know what the future may bring.

    Richard Bacon nods

    RICHARD BACON
    Indeed, do we have any other questions?

    Richard Bacon runs up the stairs and points his mike at a young woman who is eagerly raising her hand

    RICHARD BACON
    Yes

    FEMALE AUDIENCE MEMBER
    So how come none of the former Doctors could make it tonight?

    RICHARD BACON
    Good question

    STEVEN MOFFAT
    Yes, well, they were due to be here tonight, but as you may know actors schedules can be very busy, I’m sure they’ll be sad they missed the show.

    Awkward silence Steven Moffat smiles

    Richard Bacon touches his ear piece

    RICHARD BACON
    So we’re nearly at the end of the show but before we do we have an exclusive clip from tomorrows final ever episode of Doctor Who, Mr Moffat would you like to introduce it

    STEVEN MOFFAT
    Indeed, well when I realised I had to end the show I thought I should do it and a big epic way so this is the Doctors big dilemma

    RICHARD BACON
    Roll the tape

    Cuts to
    We see a close up of the Doctors hand pressing eject on a video player and a tape out pops with “the Doctor death scene” written on in biro

    The screen in the centre of the set flashes up to reveal the Doctor in the director’s gallery

    THE DOCTOR
    Hello I’m the Doctor, the real Doctor, now rumours about my untimely death have been greatly exaggerated. I’m here as I’ve always been watching and listening to you lovely people of planet earth, and I’m a little concerned of late, you seemed to be discouraged from dreaming, now that’s a terrible idea. Dream your dreams, innovate, dare to be different, that’s what you’re all so very good at, especially you children with your big head of imagination, don’t worry about that boring grown up money stuff. You can take on anything the universe has to offer if you just keep dreaming the dream. Anyway I’m just waffling now so I must stop, but remember your potential and aspire to dream, that is all.

    He flashes his sonic screwdriver and the picture breaks up and turns to static and then the title screen fades back

    Audience stands and gives rapturous applause

    We see the alien controller scream out before losing mass and disintegrating and fading into the air.

    River on seeing the alien is no more, runs out of the room

    RICHARD BACON
    (Slightly confused) Well, umm, that’s all we have time for, goodbye.

    Credits roll on screen on set

    A phone rings with the Doctor Who theme tune ring tone, it’s Steven Moffat, he answers it

    STEVEN MOFFAT
    Hello?

    10 INT RECEPTION BBC TELEVISION CENTRE

    Matt Smith is on the phone as he comes to the revolving door

    MATT SMITH
    I know I know, yeah, yeah in just there now

    Matt Smith enters the revolving door, as he does the Doctor runs into other side, they look at each other Matt Smith is completely in awe open mouth at the sight of the doppelganger in Doctor Who clothes, Matt tries to push but the Doctor jams the door for a moment before pushing all the way round and running out to the tardis.

    David Tennant follows the doctor, as he runs past a bewildered Matt Smith he mouth the words “I know” at Matt Smith.

    VOICE ON PHONE
    Hello? Hello?

    MATT SMITH
    Sorry, got to go (says absent mindedly and hangs up)

    Just then Steven Moffat enters from inside the main building a jubilant smile on face.

    STEVEN MOFFAT
    Matt, I don’t know what you think you where doing back there, (says angrily) but it worked (grins)

    MATT SMITH
    Wha, what (still bewildered)

    STEVEN MOFFAT
    Apparently the new controller has gone missing, his PA called to say he’d quit and run off to Rio to start a new life as drag queen.

    MATT SMITH
    Really? (Confused)

    STEVEN MOFFAT
    Yes, really, just got a call from the new acting controller of the BBC, she told me it all, and she’s decided to make a u-turn on the whole Doctor Who cancellation business.

    MATT SMITH
    But what about the last episode? The epic death scene?

    STEVEN MOFFAT
    Ough I think we’ll mothball that episode, the Doctor will live to fight another day, but what’s more important is we have our old job back, and we’ll have plenty of work ahead of us.

    11 INT THE TARDIS

    River Song is stood at the console

    The Doctor enters the tardis

    THE DOCTOR
    I told you to stay and watch him

    RIVER SONG
    He died and disappeared. There wasn’t anyone to watch, beside would you have come back for me?

    THE DOCTOR
    Well, no, but that’s not the point

    David Tennant enters the tardis they both look around

    DAVID TENNANT
    So, are you going off to stop the invading ships now?

    THE DOCTOR
    I don’t have to, as long the show stays on, and people keep dreaming, the invaders will be repelled

    DAVID TENNANT
    Do you think your friend knew?

    THE DOCTOR
    (Grins) quite possibly

    DAVID TENNANT
    So, you saved the world

    THE DOCTOR
    I always do

    DAVID TENNANT
    And now you’re off

    THE DOCTOR
    You could always come with me

    DAVID TENNANT
    Ough! Now that, would be wonderfully tempting, but incredibly irresponsible of me, I have kids, I have to do boring grown up stuff now, I can’t, but I thank you, it was a pleasure.

    THE DOCTOR
    Well I owe you

    DAVID TENNANT
    No, I think were even, now I think I need to leave before I do something incredibly stupid

    David exits the tardis

    12 EXT CAR PARK OF BBC TELEVISION CENTRE

    David Tennant watches as the tardis dematerialise

    DAVID TENNANT
    Best day ever.

    Fades to black

    Some good stuff on Doctor Who and sci fi in general. Great links to good articles and up to date info on Capaldi and the upcoming episodes of Doctor Who.

     

    “I’m the Doctor. I’m a Time Lord. I’m from the planet Gallifrey in the Constellation of Kasterborous. I’m 903 years old and I’m the man who is gonna save your lives and all 6 billion people on the planet below. You got a problem with that?”

    Apologies for the length of this, had a brain vomit at work today and had to get this out:

    A survey of peculiar relics of the so-called “Time War”, by William F Kaplan-Singhala, Professor of Applied Xenoarchaeology, University College of New London. First published in Granta! Magazine, 45 April 2,004,234 CE

    Among some of the less learned peoples in our part of the galaxy, there has long persisted a myth that there was a great and hideous war. This war is said to have taken place, not in the distant past, nor to be an eschatological end game in the distant future, but to have once been occurring at all times and in all places, and then, suddenly and simply, to have not been occurring.

    Science, of course, sees this for the rude and confusing superstition that it is; however it cannot be denied that there are, in a few places, strange artefacts which raise questions regarding the oft-repeated stability of the temporal fabric of reality.

    In the Arc system, reports from the early days of exploration there, some 100,000 years before present, state that what is now the second sun in that binary system was previously a sort of horrific and fascinating curio for passing travellers described as a world or satellite made entirely of human bodies, and that on closer examination this world was made of copies of the same few bodies, and was growing. In its centre was some kind of fearsome machine, surrounded by a wall of blue light from which men would appear, run towards the machine, only to be slain but then spring again from the wall of blue, stepping over their own corpses in some ghastly Sisyphean pantomime. Later reports state that this object had collapsed under its own weight, and become the small star that we see today.

    In the intergalactic space just beyond our galaxy there is a place where some kind of large, saucer shaped vessel is continuously exploding. I have seen video of this, and the explosion does not appear to be looped within the duration of the recording, but appears to occur without progression – the breakup and destruction of the vessel never progresses, not does it regress. My source assures me that he spent many days observing this phenomenon and his experience was the same. The vessel is broadcasting audio, which appears to reach out at full strength to about three thousand kilometres, where reception is suddenly impossible with no apparent prior weakening of signal. I was provided also with a recording of this audio, and it consists of a sort of garbled mess of voices, but not the voices of men. They are the clamour of some multitude of robotic abominations. Like the explosion, they continue eternally and without repetition.

    On Summer-Was-A-Butterfly, a predominantly gaseous planet, the indigenous organisms are a sort of floating aggregate of polyps supported by gaseous sacs. These organisms, although not able to communicate with us, have a fairly highly organised society. I have personally observed what are believed to be their religious practices. These include propelling each other through a certain region in their atmosphere whereupon they disappear for a period of time, and then return glowing and flashing with many vivid colours. I took a small craft through this same procedure and was astonished to find myself seemingly in another place, travelling as if along a tight, glass tube. Outside of this, although obscured by the blur of the “glass”, I could see somewhere was burning and that great flames stretched all around me, seemingly static and unmoving. This journey lasted for approximately two hours before I re-entered the atmosphere of Summer-Was-A-Butterfly. I am afraid to report that I did not noticeably glow subsequent to this experience.

    There are hundreds of reports of such places, not limited to the grand, gruesome examples we have already discussed. Out on one of the far spiral arms there is apparently a world where the inhabitants insist it is always a Tuesday. There is a large hole in the ground on Quant which makes food go bad more quickly (humorously, they call it “The Defridgerator”). Then there’s the box. It is not an artefact that has ever been discovered as far as I can tell, but a myth that exists on many worlds. A blue box that comes when things are worst and when desperation aches in people’s hearts. Many of the digs I have attended have revealed evidence of it: pictograms chiselled on temple walls, illustrations in manuscripts. Stranger still, a substantial minority make reference to a man, naming him as the only survivor of the impossible time war. They call him a saviour, a hero, but most frequently (and rather bafflingly) a doctor.

    At this point in time, our knowledge of these phenomena and artefacts is too small to do anything other than speculate. Science at present completely denies the possibility of a “Time War”, and many of our most eminent scientists have asserted that the examples I have given here are bunkum, fakery or simple misunderstandings of naturally occurrences. My own opinions and experiences are somewhat different although far from fully formed. I suspect, however, that we will learn a great deal more in the centuries to come and I look forward very much to being a part of that.

    A funny comic I saw recently (it’s a number of panels so I didn’t embed it): http://www.funnyism.com/i/funnypics/82064 — ribs the fans a bit.

    And there’s this gorgeous artist that I’ll be hitting up for some of my holiday gifts (her art can go as prints, on tote bags, mugs, etc). She’s so good that some of her pieces got officially licensed by the BBC. Official shop here.

    the parting of the ways

    More of the 50th Anniversary pieces here: a gorgeous TARDIS (that’s my fave), and one of each of the three Doctors featured in the Anniversary episode.

    Links to both of those have been posted before, but worth repeating.

    Alice X Zhang’s artwork is gorgeous, I really like her TARDIS one in particular.

    I seem to remember some discussion of 3D modelling shortly before the anniversary (perhaps by @fatmaninabox) and have been meaning to post this since then.

    It was done as part of a course in 3D design I did a few years back. Dimensions are all wrong, it’s not a brilliant render and there are some major inaccuracies but thought some might be interested to see it anyway….

    Aww, they’re cute! Dalek babies playing in their ‘My First Travel Machines’ 🙂

    My modelling is on the backburner at the moment. Apart from RL having me by the short and curlies, I’ve been busy creating my own 50th Anniversary DVD ‘box set’ which comprises of TDoTD, FishDr, AAiSaT and all the other goodies we were treated to.

    I’ve just finished inserting the ‘Proms:Encore’ performances into the main program. Now all I need to do is create the menus.

    @fatmaninabox @jimthefish

    Cute was exactly my thought too!

    Awww 🙂

    (Lots of nicely different texturing too)

    Can I nominate it for our December site avatar?

    And well done FMIAB re DIY box-set. I managed to miss the FishDr – still trying to find online, after TV had massive fail over Red Button. I’m great with some tech things, and a complete klutz with others 🙁

    Juniperfish @juniperfish

    @scaryb  You can find the “FishDr” which is actually the “Five(ish) Doctors Reboot” on the Doctor Who BBC website at http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/p01m3kfy

    It’s great! 🙂

    @juniperfish Brilliant, thanks;  I was only looking on iPlayer – which is suddenly working hard and downloading season 6, which I didn’t even know was current again. Which is nice, but not great for catching up on all the bits I missed in the scurry up to 23rd Nov. T’webs are mostly a big mystery to me. Life too. 😀
