Doctor Who – The Animated Series That Never Was…

Right, normally I post anything from my dalekboy.com Wordpress site to here, and also link to it. But this is a special post.

Last night I cracked it and decided to get Cliff Bowman the Doctor Who fan recognition he deserves. I reckon he deserves to be a guest at one of the big UK cons. So here is a link to a piece about the animated Doctor Who project that Who3D was a part of.

It'd be nice if the other members of the original team got some recognition, and that includes me obviously, but Cliff, and Phil Balaam from BBC Wales worked bloody hard, and I think it's time their little part of DW history was known.

Given that fans carry on about actors and directors who were almost associated with the show (ooh ooh, Ridley Scott was almost the Production Designer at one stage! He didn't do it, but he could have! *rolls eyes*), I think an animated series that was in a sort of secret pre-pre production for ten months has to bloody count for something!

Doctor Who Animated Series Bible – Part 1

For the curious the next part of the history of my part in the Doctor Who animated series is now up on dalekboy.com.

It's the first bit of the series bible I developed. I could put it all up at once, but there's rather a lot of it, so breaking it into sections will be easier for everyone. Plus... I'll be posting regularly!

Discovered last night that some of my emails from that time are corrupted. Fortunately, I should have multiple backups, and so be able to get all that stuff. But it just goes to show that it's a good time to be doing this. Having copies of the stuff up online means that, should I ever lose the data, it's still around and accessible.
