COMING SOON- THE DOCTORS WHO SAVED CHRISTMAS!

dwsxtrailer1

There was no real snow again over the Christmas/New Year holidays, but I knew I had to try and film something, so began the long-awaited stop-motion series. First three are ‘in the can’ as they say, just needing effects/voices music and editing together. I think it’ll be Easter by the time they are all done, but here’s a photo teaser-trailer from the epic prelude to Series 6- entitled The NeoDoctor Adventures!

Time Travelling has never been so much FUN!

INFINITE WHONIVERSES – ROBOT REVOLUTION REVISITED! (1/2)

IW RR4Back in Series 2 of Infinite WHOniverses, in 2015 I introduced A World Without The Doctor- Classic stories retold without the TARDIS arriving and the intervention/meddling/interference of The Doctor and friends.

The First tale retold was THE ROBOTS OF DEATH, from the era of 4TH Doctor Tom Baker.

Now, finally the Sequel to that story is nearly ready- More on that next time.

For now, here is THE ROBOT REVOLUTION- available to download or read online.

COMING IN 2019- THE NEODOCTOR ADVENTURES!

NDA COVER1

Yes, I know there’s only a couple of days till the end of 2018, but I’ve been doing a bit of filming and photography for New things, one of which is another spinoff from Infinite Whoniverses- a stop-motion/puppetry mini-series I’m calling The NeoDoctor Adventures, as it follows the 21st NDr. In the lead up to Series 6.

I wanted to make The Doctors Who Saved Christmas last year, but it didn’t snow, so I have had to create my own Snow planet set- not quite Hoth, but near enough, without any Wampa’s though!

So I will be casting voice actors and Narrator’s over the next couple of weeks and hopefully have a few episodes ready by the end of Jan/start of Feb 19!

GET READY! Here comes The NeoDoctor in her own series!

DOCTOR WHO’S 55TH ANNIVERSARY- PART 3-(3/4)

15 DOCTORS!

Mr. Tiglet's Blog

IW55THDOCTOR WHO’S 55TH ANNIVERSARY- PART 3-(3/4)

Well, it’s a week later than planned, but In true Blue Peter-style, here’s a rant I wrote earlier in the year-

Regeneration 101- the 15 Faces of Doctor Who


“My Successor? It could even be a Woman. There’s no reason why The Doctor should always be a Man”

Tom Baker on his ‘retirement’ from the role of Doctor Who.

(Quoted from Regeneration- The Mystery of Ages. The Time Travellers Guide by Peter Haining. 1987. (1995 edition))

15 drs numbered properly

With the release of Series 11(Season 37), I thought it was about time I updated DRG2TW, with something that’s been annoying me for some time- how everyone has gotten something fundamentally wrong.

Just thought I’d mention that I can do basic mathematics- One bean plus two beans makes three beans. Sounds a bit like Baldrick from Blackadder- one bean plus two beans are some beans!

It seems that…

DOCTOR WHO’S 55TH ANNIVERSARY- Dark Days (1/4)

DDCOVER2

DOCTOR WHO’S 55TH ANNIVERSARY- Dark Days (1/4)

With the 55th Anniversary of the world’s longest running Television Science Fiction series, I thought it was appropriate to do something to mark the occasion- several somethings actually.

So, here I am sharing a story that first appeared in the Fanzine DXC in January 1996- a long time ago in a suburb of Liverpool-not-so-far-away!

This was one of several submissions to the zine and the only one printed. The Degeneration Game and Murder on the Andromeda Express did not get printed, as far as I know. DXC was the enigmatic title given by Archeologist/writer/artist John Gordon Swogger. The second issue had contained the awesome Lord of the Rings pastische AND IN THE DARKNESS BIND THEM with Davros as the DarkLord and Thals/Humans and Draconians asDwarves, Men and Elves.

Since I was doing an Astronomy course at the time, I think I asked about an Intergalactic war story- the result was Dark Days, published in issue 4, January 1996. It began the Epic saga of a Second Vampire War and the Confederation, which developed into an original four-part Space Opera script I’m still trying to get made!

Anyway, here’s the story- hope you enjoy it!

Doc1- Dark Days by Ian Cai Mercer- DXC 1996

I recently found John’s blog, which focuses on his academic work and artistic projects and well worth a read-

Universes Without Doctors- UWD

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!!!

UWD1

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!
