The Never Was COUNTDOWN and LAUNCH !

Wednesday 14th January 2015

... starts NOW. Yep, finally! Here's what we said today on the Never Was site for the start of the countdown...

Each day from now you'll see the slideshow get longer, until the link to The Never Was finally appears. In the meantime we hope to entertain you with some pictures and clips all with a light touch - showing you hopefully the fun we had making this little film. The Never Was is an "homage" to BBC's Doctor Who. We made it as a fan love letter to the series. We made it to celebrate the programme. We made it to celebrate that other fans around the world also have a massive love for the show. Enough to make their own versions, all with their own fantastic interpretations of The Doctor, the companions , the adversaries and the sets and props.

The Never Was is all about celebrating fandom. Even on BBC this coming Friday at 7pm there is a programme about the launch of the Peter Capaldi series of Doctor Who - featuring not just footage from their launch events but fan-created films, animations and artwork too. We love "Doctor Puppet" for example - a fine example of fans paying their huge respects to the programme in an entertaining way. We all know these fan films aren't REAL Doctor Who - no-one is claiming that and we are certainly not. With The Never Was we've made our own little story which hopefully pays tribute to these other fan interpretations, with the implication that there are more out there in the fan universe (I was going to write faniverse but that sounded too strange). Enjoy our bit of fun...

 

Now you'll have to pop over to The Never Was to see stuff. UPDATED 25th January 2015 - we GO LIVE !

 

Mark Jones IS the Doctor...
