Read and Review a TDWP Story

June 20, 2017

A few weeks ago readers of our blog may recall the launch of the TDWP READ & REVIEW PROJECT.  While I may be biased, personally I think this is a great idea and one I’d like to encourage you out there reading this, to participate in.  I know this may not be everyone’s cup of tea – to read and review a piece of fiction – but why not give it a try and participate.  All you have to do is read one of our stories, and then write up a 500-1500 word (tops) review of the story you just read.  It couldn’t get much simpler.  And don’t forget.  There’s a great incentive/bonus/thank you gift, if you read & review 7 or more stories.

For more information on the project, and how to get involved, just click on the Read & Review Project link at the top of this page.

Written by Michael Baxter

The topsail schooner Miss Miles is wrecked and Edmund Leigh, the only survivor, finds himself stranded on Bone Island, a place avoided by superstitious sailors.

Edmund encounters the Doctor and they accompany two of the Aranthean race, Icanthe and Patrexa, on a quest to rescue their lost queen, Valadria.

Unknown to them all, an ancient horror awaits them at the end of their expedition.

In the meantime, the prophetess Seronique warns of a forthcoming cataclysm that may destroy the island.

Can the four adventurers possibly survive?

The Secrets of Bone Island features the First Doctor and will be available to download free in PDF format from the Doctor Who Project site on Saturday, June 17, 2017.

The TDWP Read and Review Project

June 1, 2017

The Doctor Who Project is launching an all new project called The Read & Review Project.

Having published some 140-plus stories since 1999, The Doctor Who Project has only seen a fraction of those published reviewed.  The aim of the project is to get every single TDWP story published to date reviewed.

And to help us reach this goal, this is where you can get involved!

TDWP is looking for individuals who would be interested in doing reviews of our various stories and special publications.  All that is required is to read a story, write a review of said story, submit it to us, and we’ll publish it on our website.

We’re looking for balanced, fair and well-reasoned reviews.

We’ll also feature the review(s) in a special forthcoming paperback publication, TDWP Reviewed (title subject to change).  Reviews can vary in length but we prefer them to be in the 500-1500 word range, with each story rated on a scale of 0-10 out of 10. You can review just one story, or as many stories as you like.


as an added bonus – to anyone who reviews 7 stories or more, as a thank you from The Doctor Who Project, you will receive a complimentary copy of TDWP Reviewed when its released.

Want to participate?

Just send us an email to:, telling us your name, age, a bit about yourself, and if you’ve had any writing experience.  (Experience can be professional, amateur, in a fanzine, newsletter, university, etc).  If you’d like to send us a sample of your writing, please feel free to include that with your email.  We’ll respond as soon as we can.

New Brief Encounters Editor Appointed

May 28, 2017

The Doctor Who Project is pleased to announce the appointment of Richard Peevers as our new Brief Encounters Editor. Richard will be responsible for editing and commission of stories for the range, as well as overseeing the day-to-day activities. Richard contacted us out of the blue to see if the position was still open, which it was. He submitted his credentials with the view to being considered for the post. All of us on the Editorial Board were quite impressed with his qualifications, so after exchanging a few emails and having several conversations, we decided to offer the post to Richard, who was thrilled to become part of the team.

Richard is a writer currently living in Los Angeles, California, although he is originally from England. Recent writing has appeared in Black-Hearted Magazine and Pocket Notes, among others. In his time, Richard has also been a professor of Ancient Greek, a German translator, and a manager at Apple. When he is not writing, Richard can be found visiting weird roadside attractions with his beautiful wife. It remains Richard’s firm belief that The Ambassadors of Death is the greatest Doctor Who story of all time.

All of us here at TDWP are excited to welcome Richard to the team, as we’re sure all of readers will be as well.
