Forgotten Lives

A short story anthology from Obverse Books in aid of Alzheimer’s Research UK
 

They say a person is the sum of their memories – a Time Lord even more so. But some people live so long that there is no longer room for all the memories; they find themselves diminished, whittled away piece by piece…

 

For many years, Doctor Who has implied that the Doctor William Hartnell played was the Time Lord’s first incarnation – but there has always been room for doubt. In 1976’s The Brain of Morbius, we were given glimpses of eight stern-faced men in assorted historical costumes – Doctors before the one we know as the first.What were they like, these forgotten Doctors? What worlds did they visit, and what adventures did they have there? Who were their companions, and who were their enemies?And perhaps just as interesting – what sort of stories would this forgotten prehistory of Doctor Who have told?

 

Forgotten Lives seeks to answer those questions, while raising money to benefit research into preventing and curing the loss of memory and identity that human longevity brings.

Featuring stories from Aditya Bidikar, Simon Bucher-Jones, Kara Dennison, Paul Driscoll, Andrew Hickey, Philip Purser-Hallard, and others, and artwork by Paul Hanley

 

Forgotten Lives will be published in late 2020, with pre-orders open in the autumn!

Time ScopeDoctor Who fans from around the world have joined forces to raise funds for Scope<\/a>, the disability equality charity. 
Time Scope is an unofficial and unauthorised Doctor Who charity anthology e-book containing 50 short stories interspersed with poetry and artwork, which weaves its way through time and space visiting the Doctors and their friends. Along the way, cast and crew share their memories of working on the show and projects from the wider Whoniverse.

Compiled entirely in lockdown in 2020, all 114 contributors – who range in age from 13 to 90 – have given their work freely in order to support Scope at a time when the charity’s income has fallen dramatically owing to the necessity of having to close charity shops and cancel fundraising events during lockdown owing to the COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic.

Selling for £6.99 with 100% of proceeds going to the charity Scope, Time Scope is available to purchase now<\/a>
