Calling all would be Doctor Who writers…

book_covers_dec_08

For years now most Doctor Who stories that have been shown on television have been novelised at some point. This also includes the stories that no longer exist on film or are missing from the BBC’s film archive.

For some strange reason the BBC have made the decision not to novelise the new stories that have been shown since 2005. Instead they have chosen to commission new stories for their range of books.

I feel sad that they have decided not to release the new series stories in book form as I believe it could introduce The Doctor to a whole new audience.

To this end I am inviting all would be writers to get in touch. There are 57 stories that have so far been shown on British TV, including the latest, Planet of the Dead. You may choose your own story, provided that it hasn’t already been taken by someone else. All stories will feature either the 9th and 10th Doctors and companions featured in that story. The novels should remain faithful to the transmitted script and plot lines. The drama of the writing is then down to you. 

In return for writing the novelised story, I will publish it in hardback book form. You will recieve a free copy.

These books will be fan written, for fans of the show and not for profit. Your friends and family will be able to purchase a copy of your book for the price it costs to produce it. I will donate my own time in producing and designing the cover of the book, to which I will try and remain faithfull to the covers of the books published by the BBC.

If you feel you would like to try your hand (or pen) at novelising one of the stories from the new series, please contact me via this blog.
