The Wrong Doctor - An AU Doctor Who series

Since the fanfic section does allow occasional forays into other TV series, I thought I'd share a series of fanfics I created for Doctor Who. It features an Alternate Universe Seventh Doctor, whose timeline diverged from the one established in the TV series some time before the story begins. Currently this series stands at thirteen stories. I hope you enjoy it!

Stories are presented in PDF format. (I can post them here in bbcode if people would like, PDF is just easier for me.)

Comments and criticism are always welcome.

And now, may I present...

The Quiet Ones

Re: The Wrong Doctor - An AU Doctor Who series

Oh, thank goodness for that. Having said I'd read your stories I was worried that they might turn out to be rubbish, and I'd have to find something neutrally polite to say. As it turns out, this is really rather good. A straightforward story, with some excellent descriptive prose and good characterisation.

A couple of minor problems, some of the terms used, like 'cot' or 'cell phone', are American (we'd say camp bed and mobile phone) but that's hardly a major disaster. And despite the illustration and the description of the Doctor, I still saw him played by Sylvester McCoy, which made some dialogue seem a bit odd, especially the swearing.

Those points aside this was an enjoyable read, and I look forward to the next one.

Re: The Wrong Doctor - An AU Doctor Who series

Thanks for the kind words - I wrote this some years ago, before I put much thought into learning the terms used in the UK. I promise, the stories improve in that detail as they go on. I'm glad you enjoyed it as well - this one is quite rough around the edges, before I learned the value of rewrites and editors. And I was trying to step away from Sylv's portrayal, make my 7th Doctor a very different man than the 'official' version.

Stay tuned for another installment tomorrow...

Re: The Wrong Doctor - An AU Doctor Who series

Very interesting! Now we know why this Doctor diverges from the 'real' one!

Great work on the descriptions too, I can really imagine what the station looked like.

Re: The Wrong Doctor - An AU Doctor Who series

Thank you both for your kind words! I thought it vital to establish the station as somewhere real, somewhere the Doctor would have spent a not-insignificant portion of his long life. Good to know that it worked!

And now... may I present the next installment in The Wrong Doctor series:

The Gemini Vaults.

Hope you enjoy it! (And Badger, keep a lookout for a certain garment. )

Re: The Wrong Doctor - An AU Doctor Who series

Excellent, truly excellent. A compelling story that makes perfect sense (OK, the Doctor does figure it out very quickly with little information, but then, he's the Doctor), believable characterisation throughout, and an attention to detail that adds greatly to the verisimilitude of the setting. Descriptions of things, like the ration bars or the blue and white lights on the troopers vehicle, make things seem more real.

And Cynara definitely gets the Badger seal of approval !

(BTW, have you seen this thread? http://trekbbs.com/showthread.php?t=144170 Seems right up your street )

Looking forward to the next one!

Re: The Wrong Doctor - An AU Doctor Who series

Well you've managed to temper the grit of the 9th with the adventure that I would have seen from the 8th. It is a really well written series and I like the mixture of both the "I" point of view and the third person point of view. Somehow I get a vision of the classic TARDIS and the grandeur of the 8th Doctor's TARDIS. Keep up the good work!

Re: The Wrong Doctor - An AU Doctor Who series

Been busy, so I've only just now managed to read The Echoes Of Calluna. As well written as always, with an interesting mystery that has a satisfactory and logical solution.

One complaint though. Cynara no longer wears the slipsuit!

Re: The Wrong Doctor - An AU Doctor Who series

Thanks for reading, Badger! Much as I love the thought of a buxom Doctor Who companion clad in nothing but a skintight latex catsuit, I just couldn't figure out a reasonable excuse to keep her clad that way. So now it's bare midriffs and painted-on jeans - oh, I gave it away! Better go read the next story!

May I present the sixth installment in The Wrong Doctor tales...

The Faraday Intrigue.

Enjoy!

Who needs an excuse? Tegan stayed in her uniform for her entire first series, Ace rarely changed...keeping one set of clothes on is practically a Who tradition!

I've just read The Perfect Flaw. Very well done. I could really hear Colin deliver some of his dialogue.
