    EditorialsJames, Ken, Louis;

    Thanks for doing a fairly lengthy piece on my "Second Key" photo story. I listened intently as you spent a fair amount of time commenting glowingly on my story.

    As you talked about it, I realized I gave you very little background on myself and my history. For my first Doctor Who photo story, Redemption, I did a "Behind the TARDIS" page which describes in great detail just why I did it, giving a lot of the background and motivations for the story.

     New Remote Control Dalek - Sun Offer Chance to Win One  View Printable Version

    A new remote-controlled Dalek modeled after the new look introduced in the 2005 series is being touted to be this year's number 1 toy in the UK by The Sun newspaper.

    The Sun is offering a chance to win one of 50 of these Daleks when you buy today's Sun newspaper.

    The 12 inch tall Dalek will be available in stores next week and will sell for 39.99 in the UK. It features an illuminated eye, flashing lights, and the infamous Dalek synthesized speech including, "Halt, or you will be EXTERMINATED!"

    "Daleks have brought some of the most dramatic moments in TV history. These models will give hours of play to anyone wanting to escape into the role of something as exciting as a Dalek," said Jerry Healy, of Character Options, the maker of the Dalek toy.

     Fan Films...  View Printable Version

    EditorialsAfter reading Sean Huxter's excellent Doctor Who Photo-story, I've been surfing around for other decent Doctor Who fan ficton.

    Obviously it goes without saying that fan-films are a huge part of science fiction in general - particularly so of mainstream series like Star Wars. This ranges from things that are entriely comedic in nature to serious fan films. Most of these films now have excellent production values considering budget, largely thanks to the computing revolution of recent years.

    One of the most popular databases for fan films is that of fanfilms.net, so if you are looking for a wide variety of fan films this should be your first port of call. Currently the Doctor Who Section of this site has 95 films listed.

    From this site I managed to find a local studio called Westlake Films, who are based in Sowerby Bridge here in West Yorkshire. They are a group of Whovians who get together frequently to produce funny films based on the Doctor Who universe. Particularly good is a series called Star Trek VS. Doctor Who, which as the name suggests, pits two of the most popular sci-fi series in order to determine which is the best of all time. I thought that the scenes with the inflatable daleks were hilarious!

    Another particularly good story is that of the Nemesis of Doom where we see the ninth Doctor and his unknown companion roaming the streets of Yorkshire, closely followed by the Master. It's all good fun and makes good viewing when you have a few minutes spare. Anyway - check it out and let me know what you think.

    Doctor Who NewsI've been enjoying your Pod Casts. I just got into listening to PodCasts this past week. I love listening to talk radio while working, as well as the Big Finish Audios, Hitchhiker's Guide, anything entertaining, really.

    I thought you might want to hear about my Doctor Who photo story, "The Second Key".

    I'd describe it, but it's easier if I just show you.

    http://sean.adventureteam.com/pages/dw-secondkey/dw-title.htm

    This is the Title Page. Click the image for the index, and start reading with the Prologue.

    It's unfinished, but six of the eight chapters are complete. Work is underway on "Segment Six" as I write.

    Please enjoy!
