The Return, New Stories and Season 41
After fifteen years of stories, it had been decided that the project would wrap up and publish one final season. This they did publishing Season 40 – The Final Season which included four stories by authors Krista Wilson, Matthew James, Miles Reid-Lobatto and John Swogger. On December 20, 2014, part two of the two-part adventure “Final Reckoning” by John Swogger was published. It was the end of an era – or so it was meant to be.
Jump ahead to late 2015.
Bob, Jez and Jeremy had met up online to discuss the possibility of future Brief Encounters stories. It was during this chat, that Jez and Jeremy mentioned that they missed writing for the TDWP Tenth Doctor, which lead them to proposing to Bob the idea of doing an all new season of adventures featuring the Tenth Doctor and Hannah. Initially adamantly opposed to the idea, Bob wasn’t interested in resurrecting the project. The odd Brief Encounter was fine, but he had no interest in doing any other stories. Jez and Jeremy were not about to give up on the idea and continued their attack. They wanted to see Hannah and the Tenth Doctor return. After an involved and lengthy discussion, Bob finally relented and agreed to resurrect the main range.
So it is with great pleasure that we announce that after a two-year break, The Doctor Who Project returns with a season of all new adventures in time and space featuring the Tenth Doctor and companion Hannah Redfoot.
Season 41 will feature nine new original stories from the talents of nine excellent authors. The season is set to debut in late 2016 with a Christmas Special followed by a full season in early 2017. The season sees stories by three returning TDWP authors and six authors contributing to the project for the very first time.
The Season 41 lineup will be:
STORY ONE: 2016 CHRISTMAS SPECIAL
THE NIGHT BEFORE CHRISTMAS by Craig Charlesworth
PALIMPSEST by Hamish Crawford
THE COST OF CURE by James T. Jeans
