Universes Without Doctors- UWD
By Ian Cai Mercer
“THE UNIVERSE WITHOUT THE DOCTOR- THERE WILL BE CONSEQUENCES”- MADAME VASHTRA- THE NAME OF THE DOCTOR.
“A Timelord? But they’re forbidden to interfere.” “This one calls himself The Doctor, and does nothing but interfere.”
The Cyber lieutenant and Cyber leader- Earthshock Part 2
“A WORLD WITHOUT THE DOCTOR SCARCE BEARS THINKING ABOUT.”- THE MASTER IN THE FIVE DOCTORS.
WHAT HAS GONE BEFORE-
THERE ARE A NUMBER OF STORIES WHERE THE DOCTOR’S INTERVENTION IS CRITICAL TO THE EVIL BEING STOPPED OR PROBLEM OVERCOME.
BUT WHAT IF HE HAD NOT BEEN THERE? How Different would the outcome be?
It’s a scary thought, but a brilliant premise-
Welcome to a world without the doctor!!!
There is a new force in the Multiverse- well, a re-branding really. No longer A World Without The Doctor- It’s time to think bigger- It’s time for UNIVERSES WITHOUT DOCTORS- UWD!
Yes- plural not singular.. More unfriendly, even downright dangerous and scary-hairy, no messing about.
The previous six stories played with the premise well- using TV stories as the Launchpad and seeing what MIGHT have happened without the Doctor’s arrival/interference. ROBOTS OF DEATH became The Robot Revolution, still my favourite of the bunch.
CITY OF DEATH became Saviour of the Jagaroth as Scaroth stopped himself and led a new Jagaroth Empire.
EARTHSHOCK became Aftershock as three Beings vied for dominance in the body of the CyberLeader. ROSE turned into Rose Tyler and the Manniquin Monsters.
THE RUNAWAY BRIDE became Infestation Day and recently THE CURSE OF PELADON and THE DALEKS MASTERPLAN became The Warriors of Peladon- with the local group of galaxies going up in flames.
It seems apt to change the name of the thread as the 55th Anniversary Season is on (Series 11- or Season 37 if you’re counting from Season 26)
So this Halloween get ready for scary Clown and Sweet droids as THE HAPPINESS PATROL becomes Happiness Will Prevail- originally slated for a year ago, but a few new elements make it even better- including the debut of The Kandy Lady!
Get ready for INFINITE WHONIVERSES- UNIVERSES WITHOUT DOCTORS!
