Story: April's Fools

Our latest story is April’s Fools, by Alex Smith, (Yours Truly) available now on the DWR website! And despite what the title might imply, no, it isn’t an April Fools joke…

‘This is going to be fun!’

A chance landing on a luxury starship takes the Doctor and Tracy to the planet April - where the famed Festival of Fools is about to begin. A celebration of comedy and performance, the Doctor can’t wait for the shows to start; but it soon becomes apparent that something sinister is happening on April…

The perfect way to finish off April Fool’s day! Go and read it!

Short Delay

The latest story in our series, Stars and Stripes, was supposed to be made available today at 7pm. Unfortunately, that hasn’t happened. Mark, the writer of the story, has been wrapped up in other commitments such as working on scripts for a TV sitcom he is currently drafting. As a result, he got the final draft of Stars and Stripes to me very late in the month, and the story is still in editing. We have pushed back the publication date to the 4th of March, this Sunday, to give me enough time to finalise the story. Thanks for your patience, and sorry for the delay.

Story: Smoke

Since Doctor Who: Re-Incarnated set up shop back in September, we’ve published seven short stories in our series. Over the course of the next week, we’re going to be posting links to each of those stories, one story a day, so that come Sunday any new fans who visit this Tumblr page will find it to be completely up to date. That way, we can post new stories as they are released, and not worry about some of our back catalog being missing from this page.

The week of updates is finally at an end, because today is Sunday. That means we’re looking at DWR’s most recently released story today, with Smoke.

‘They’ll choke the Earth until there’s nothing left…’

Life just got pretty exciting for Tracy Blaid. She’s been swept out of the museum where she works, into an impossible blue box that’s bigger on the inside, by a madman who calls himself the Doctor. But while she struggles to comprehend this impossible turn of events, a dark alien force has infiltrated Earth…

***

Last month’s story, The Blue Box, was the first part of our two-parted series two opener. Smoke is the conclusion to that story, wrapping off the introduction of our new companion and following the Doctor’s battle with the sinister Krafkans to its conclusion. The longest story we’ve ever released, Smoke is past thirty pages in length - but don’t worry, as it is split into easily readable chapters, so to be easier to digest.

Being our most recently published story (first made available on the website only earlier this month), I remember writing this one quite clearly. I got most of it done over the course of a weekend - squeezing a decent chunk of writing time into a free Sunday. I’ve learnt that dedicating a full day to writing is a lot more productive than trying to write in small snippets. Smoke is a long book, much longer than my other stories, and unlike the others (in my opinion), it would actually work as a proper TV episode.

You can read Smoke over on the series two page of the main site.

So now this Tumblr page is up to date with our complete back catalog of short stories. From now on, we will post to inform you of important developments (on the site or otherwise), and to let you know when new stories have been published. Remember to follow us and thank you for reading!

Story: The Blue Box

Since Doctor Who: Re-Incarnated set up shop back in September, we’ve published seven short stories in our series. Over the course of the next week, we’re going to be posting links to each of those stories, one story a day, so that come Sunday any new fans who visit this Tumblr page will find it to be completely up to date. That way, we can post new stories as they are released, and not worry about some of our back catalog being missing from this page.

It’s Saturday, so why don’t we use the first half of the weekend to look at the first half of a two-part story? Yep, it’s our series two opener, The Blue Box.

‘Would you believe me if I told you this isn’t really a police box?’

When Tracy Blaid, an ordinary London girl, stops in the street to examine an unusual looking phone box, it will be the start of the greatest adventure of her life. A cheerful museum thief, a high-security research lab, and a swarm of living smoke – they’re all waiting for her, through the doors of the blue box.

***

We first released this story on New Year’s Day, and what better way to kick off 2012 than with a brand new series of DWR? The first story to be released in two parts, we realised it needed to be split into multiple releases due to its length; both parts are sizable on their own, but together they would be ridiculously long for a 'short’ story. Today we are focusing just one part one though, the first story in our second series.

The Blue Box was the first story ever devised when myself and Mark were discussing stories; the tale of the TARDIS ending up in a museum was one of my earliest ideas for a Doctor Who story. Though the original concept was vastly different to what was finally released, that basic thread remains the same. This story also features a very big event in DWR history; the introduction of our first ever bona fide companion.

You can read The Blue Box over on the series two page of the main site.

Come back tomorrow for our most recently released story, the second part to The Blue Box. Until then, goodbye and thank you for reading!

Story: Ghosts of Christmas Past

Since Doctor Who: Re-Incarnated set up shop back in September, we’ve published seven short stories in our series. Over the course of the next week, we’re going to be posting links to each of those stories, one story a day, so that come Sunday any new fans who visit this Tumblr page will find it to be completely up to date. That way, we can post new stories as they are released, and not worry about some of our back catalog being missing from this page.

It’s Friday, so as the main week comes to a close, let’s celebrate by looking at our series one finale - and 2011 Christmas special - Ghosts of Christmas Past.

‘And what Christmas surprise do you have in store for me next, eh?’

Legend tells of a man named Kris Kringle, who handed out presents to children. The Doctor is on his way to see this bit of history for himself, when suddenly the TARDIS violently drops out of the time vortex and is stopped dead in space. When he comes to, he begins experiencing visions of companions long gone. Is the Doctor losing his mind? Or have the ghosts come to warn him of a much greater danger?

***

There are plenty of things about this story that make it unique among our current back catalog of short stories. It’s the final story of our first series, marking the gap between the first and second (current) seasons of DWR. It’s our only Christmas story, released as it was on Christmas day. And last but certainly not least, it’s the only story currently available written by a guest author - not by myself or Mark. Shaun Collins, a writer, film-maker and Doctor Who podcaster, was kind enough to pen Ghosts of Christmas Past for us (Shaun can, incidentally, be found on twitter here, and you can visit the homepage of the podcast he co-hosts here).

While the title of this story might inspire thoughts of the Doctor Who episode A Christmas Carol, the similarities stop at the name. Ghosts of Christmas Past is actually a nostalgic, introspective little tale set entirely inside the TARDIS. The 'ghosts’ in question are friends of the Doctor’s from days gone by, so this story contains plenty of nods, nudges and winks to all eras of Doctor Who. The story also very subtly foreshadows something big that occurs in DWR’s next story - but you’ll have to come back tomorrow to find out about that!

You can read Ghosts of Christmas Past by going to the series 1 page on our website.

Thanks for reading, and come back on Saturday for the very first story in our second series!

Story: The Heavy Scent of Violence

Since Doctor Who: Re-Incarnated set up shop back in September, we’ve published seven short stories in our series. Over the course of the next week, we’re going to be posting links to each of those stories, one story a day, so that come Sunday any new fans who visit this Tumblr page will find it to be completely up to date. That way, we can post new stories as they are released, and not worry about some of our back catalog being missing from this page.

Now that we’re back on time, let’s take a look at Thursday’s story; it’s The Heavy Scent of Violence.

‘Maybe not today, maybe not tomorrow, but soon…’

A killer is stalking the streets of London, and four people are already dead. The Doctor and his friends might be able to stop the Ripper - but can they do so before he claims his final victim? Or will Jack’s escape be set in motion by the complex machinations of time?

***

Mark has always been a bit of a history buff, and as a result, he really enjoys writing historical stories. He’s also something of a Jack the Ripper fan, and you can probably already see where this is going so I’ll skip right to the point - he wrote a story all about the infamous serial murderer, and that is today’s story.

Mark paid a lot of attention to the case files and all of the available information surrounding the murders when writing this story, and it really pays off; many of the characters are real people who were involved in the crimes at the time. And of course, Mark was aware when writing this that the Ripper had been mentioned in the real Doctor Who show, and there’s a sly reference to that in this story as well.

You can read The Heavy Scent of Violence by going to the series 1 page on our website.

Come back here on Friday, when another story from our back catalog will be uploaded - the series one finale! And as always, thank you for reading.

Story: A Piece of Advice

Since Doctor Who: Re-Incarnated set up shop back in September, we’ve published seven short stories in our series. Over the course of the next week, we’re going to be posting links to each of those stories, one story a day, so that come Sunday any new fans who visit this Tumblr page will find it to be completely up to date. That way, we can post new stories as they are released, and not worry about some of our back catalog being missing from this page.

Today is Wednesday… Oh, wait a minute, no it isn’t. Due to a slight bit of forgetfullness on my part - sorry guys - we didn’t have a story update on Wednesday, so instead you’re getting two in one today. So just pretend that it’s Wednesday, okay? Anywho, today we’re taking a look at the third story in the DWR series, A Piece of Advice.

‘Greetings, traveller…’

High atop a mountain, there stands an ancient monastery, a temple where the brotherhood make their home and live their lives. They are intelligent, thoughtful, wise, and they make it their duty to help those in need. Today, the man who needs their help is the Doctor.

***

Originally published in November last year, I wrote this story primarily to further one of the central themes of DWR; the story behind the Doctor’s seemingly impossible 13th regeneration. This story reveals a lot of information on the events of the regeneration - we get to see the Doctor directly after he wakes up, in events prior to On the Corner of Longburrow Lane - and the Doctor’s mission in the story is to try and figure out the hows and whys surrounding his own survival. It’s probably the most arc-central story released thus far.

Of the stories I’ve written for the series so far, this is probably my favourite. I’m really quite proud of the brotherhood and Brother Tiba, and I hope I get to use them again in a future story someday. I also really enjoyed writing the back-and-forth bantering between the Doctor and Tiba, which gave me plenty of opportunity to throw in several literary quotes (and one not-so-literary quote). And if any of you following the series are on the look out for an underlying theme of some sort that may rise to prominence in the future, keep your eyes peeled on the final pages…

You can read A Piece of Advice by going to the series 1 page on our website.

Thank you for reading, and come back tomorrow (Cough, today, cough) for another update in our ongoing catch-up.
