Who Competitions

I wrote a little Doctor Who fan fiction in May for an online competition.

Toward the end of June I entered a major competition to write a story for Doctor Who that would be produced as an audio episode (by Big Finnish who do official Who radio adventures) .

It didn’t win the competition, but I received a very encouraging response from the editor:

“Thanks for writing in. We had hundreds of submissions again this year, and although I couldn’t respond to them all, in a few cases I’d wanted to get in touch because even if the work didn’t quite make the final shortlist, it was close. I really liked the idea of The Diary, drawing on a known Doctor Who object but spinning out a wonderfully human story. We had a lot of stories taking a new person’s perspective on the Doctor’s life and they were very rarely done as well as this. Best wishes and do keep on writing!”
