Scream Of The Whovians

By Shannon Lush 

**Note: I wrote this in the late evening/early morning hours while a torrential downpour of rain spattered off the roof and beat against the windows of my humble abode. It provided the perfect atmosphere and mood by which to write. It is one of the joys of being a long-serving Whovian: the mere mention of titles of stories and actor's names and big events that surrounded their creation and transmission cause good memories to come pouring forth faster than the rain. I hope you enjoy this blog entry as much as I did crafting it!**

'Doctor Who' fandom, in addition to boasting the longest running television science fiction series in history, also can beat its collective chest over its expanded universe of spin-off material. From original novels to comic books and strips, audio and even stage plays, the quirky, low budget series that captured imaginations from day one has, for almost 50 years now, presented diverse stories for fans to enjoy. Today we will be reviewing 'Scream Of The Shalka', a 2003 flash-animated adventure first transmitted on BBCi, or BBC Interactive, the corporation's official website.

Sixth in the series of Handbooks by Howe, Stammers and Walker

A review by Shannon Lush

The "Handbook" series of non-fiction reference guides contained an ingenious idea, which was proudly spelled out from the start: "Doctor Who, Doctor by Doctor". This concept intrigued fans. Finally, readers could discover the minutia and facts behind their favourite era of the programs.
