Mad Libs: Doctor Who Episode Edition! The idea: Try and write a one sentence pitch for a Doctor Who episode. Not a major "The Time Lords are coming back!" or "Susan is River is Amy is the Doctor's Mother! ZOMG!!" style fanfic idea, but a solid stand-alone episode pitch in just one sentence. In developing the Mad Lib, I worked under the premise that when the Doctor goes to the past he a) encounters a historical figure or event, and b) must defeat a sci-fi element. The Doctor usually finds aliens in the past. The premise for an episode set in the future is more that the Doctor is often to encounter an old idea or superstition. So whereas he encounters sci-fi elements in the past, he encounters traditional elements in the future (i.e. going to a planet that orbits a black hole and finding the devil, or going to New Earth circa year 5 Billion and finding a morality play on the role of medical ethics). Try and fill in the blanks in order to come up with the loose plot of a stand alone Doctor Who episode. Feel free to tweak to Mad Lib a little, but try and shoot for a 1-2 sentence pitch of the episode, preferably without anything game changing. The goal is a standard Doctor Who episode, not a major finale. Doctor Who episode set in the past: The Doctor and his companion arrive in (TIME PERIOD, PLACE) and meet (HISTORICAL FIGURE), but soon discover they must stop (ALIEN OR OTHER SCI-FI THREAT) The Doctor and his companion arrive in 1619 and meet Galileo Galilei, but soon discover they must stop the Headless Monks from crashing a giant asteroid into the Earth in order to bring about a new era of religious rule.
