Caption Competition #1

The first DWF Caption Competition will begin on September 1st (this year, obviously) and end on the 7th. So each Caption Comp will last 1 week.

I am starting it off on a screencap from 'Rose' in Series 1 and continuing from each episode in chronological order (including mini-specials). The winner of each week's wil have their caption displayed on the Caption Competition Archive page, which will be available when #1 has closed.

Enter your caption by putting it in a comment. Only competition entries please, no actual comments on it, just so as not to confuse.

Now think of a caption for this...

Notification - Monster Competition

The monster competition has been aborted, as there has only been one entry and I would currently prefer to consentrate on my action-figure series (see previous article for Part 2 of The Bat and the Wolf) at the moment.
Sorry for the confusion.

Adventures in Time and Space #2

Here is Part 2 of my first Adventures in Time and Space story, The Bat and the Wolf (featuring the 10th Doctor and Martha). See a few articles previously for Part 1.

Part 3 is currently being filmed.

The Quatermass Experiment

BBC4 are going to air the 2005 live broadcast version of The Quatermass Experiment. The original Quatermass Experiment, the 1953 science fiction drama by Nigel Kneale, was lost in the BBC archives.

This remake, being shown on Tuesday 2nd September at 10.30pm, stars David Tennant as Briscoe (the Doctor, obviously), Mark Gatiss as Paterson (writer for Doctor Who and played Profesor Lazarus), and Indira Varma as Judith Carroon (Suzie Costello in Torchwood).

Possible Doctor Who Movie

While he was filling in for RTD at the Edinburgh Television Festival, future show-runner, Steven Moffat, said this about the possibility of a Doctor Who movie:

"As long as it was great and fantastic then yeah. But a film is on 90 minutes and that is not as important as the series. But as long as it doesn't get in the way of the show we could do it. The world would be a poorer place without Doctor Who."

Design A Monster Competition

Here at DWF there is some very exciting news! I have been inspired by Will and Seb (>Will and Seb's Blog<) and am planning to write my own fan fiction stories. The first thing I thought was, "what should the first monster be to appear in it?" and then it came to me.

I'm relying on you to create a monster good enough to open up the first fanfic series. Can you do it? The first series' companion will be Rose Tyler (just so you know) with the Ninth Doctor (I just think there aren't many stories for the 9th Doctor compared with the 10th).

The winner of this competition will have their monster appear in my Doctor Who fanfic! If you're up for a monster challenge to create your very own monster to appear in my fanfic series, simply draw the monster on a piece of A4 paper and scan onto your PC or draw on the PC with a description so I know what it can do and what it's about, then send you finished entry to:

I will announce as a post on this website when the competition closes.
P.S. Please enter!!!
