Tenth Doctor Laurent Meyer has recently been squashing rumours talking about his future in Doctor Who. Meyer who has played the role since late-2010 told the Vancouver Sun that rumours of his departure are just that, rumours.
“I’m currently busy in the midst of filming Season 41. I have no plans to leave the series at this time, or anytime in the near future. Pure rumour. I don’t know where you’re getting your information from, but these stories are obviously just that [rumours]. I love playing this part, so why would I want to leave.”

In the race to discover the true culprit, the Doctor, Hannah, and their new friends uncover a vast conspiracy that could topple the colony’s government.

All of us here at TDWP are excited to release our latest BRIEF ENCOUNTER story, The Misshapen Planet by Chris McKeon featuring the First Doctor and companions Stephen and Dodo.
The TARDIS intercepts a distress signal traveling through time and the Doctor feels compelled to investigate. Tracing the call to a beautiful world, the Ship lands within a mysterious vessel; and soon the Doctor, Steven, and Dodo find themselves trapped in the sinister clutches of the Doctor’s old enemies, the Voord. And to make matters worse, there is also another TARDIS on board the Voord ship, a TARDIS with a Monk at its helm.
With Dodo and Steven held hostage, the Doctor is forced to assist his fellow time traveller in completing a dangerous task. But why has the Monk allied himself with the Voord? What is their bold, new intention? What is the strange object that lies at the bottom of the Ravine? And what sudden, terrifying illness has afflicted the Doctor?
The answer to these questions leads the Doctor straight into a catastrophe, which hits closer to home than he ever thought possible.
The story is available to download free in PDF format form the TDWP site. Enjoy.
