Well January 1st has rolled around once more and from everyone here at TIMD let me wish you a happy New Year! It’s been quite a year for us. Last January I was just getting my start in the world of Doctor Who news.
Starting at Doctor Who Worldwide on January 6th, I made the leap to my own sit in March, continuing on as a mainstream DW news site. Over the past year we have gotten a few awesome interviews (Neil Perryman and Andrew Cartmel) and talked about missing episodes and Series 8 spoilers, all before I decided a change of direction would be nice.
Any site can talk about the latest news and rumours, so I broke away from that pack and decided to focus on the fans and what they are doing to make Doctor Who one of the world’s biggest franchises. I talked to fans who made their own tardis consoles, fans that published their reviews in e-books and fans that have made their own audio dramas!
So, from me to you, thanks for sticking with me and making this last year awesome! And to all those who were active participants in my venture, writers like Martin, Gary and Andrew, interviewees like Museum Dave, Andrew Chalmers and Mike Tamburro, I consider you friends, one and all!
The pace of posts may have slowed slightly, but I remain committed to being the number one site by fans, for fans and about Doctor Who fans!
Welcome to a special edition of the Monday Morning News Round Up!
Special? You betcha. Welcome to the Dark Journey Round Up. Saturday the good folks over at amaudiomedia.com launched their fan produced Doctor Who audio adventure Dark Journey. Episode One – The Doctor Meets the Great Detective went live at 5:35pm local time. Have you had a chance to listen yet? I would recommend you take eleven minutes out of your day and check it out!
Earlier in the week I had a chance to sit down and Skype with Mike, Andrew and Clayton, three of the masterminds behind the project! You can check out that interview as well as more information about the project. And stay tuned because later today I will be posting a review of episode one!
Oh, but there’s more. As a part of #FanProducedFriday, where we try to highlight fan projects, TIMD interviewed Dave, who produced the amazing tardis console you see here!
Okay, on to the real news. Or lack thereof. Have you been waiting for The Underwater Menace to come out on dvd? Well you might be waiting a little while longer. Even though amazon has it listed to preorder, Steve Roberts says the dvd range is dead.
