Hey hey hey! Work has started on DWR once again, and to celebrate, a shiny art book that you can purchase and download here!
It has sketches from ‘The Fallen Angel’, early character art, and nice details of some of the backgrounds. Print it out yourself or just keep it on your computer, whatever you want to do with it, you’ll own a little piece of DWR!
All proceeds from the book will help fund my stay with Hamish in May. Every purchase keeps DWR alive and my trip a little less financially stressful. Thank you!
Yesterday Lydia and I had an 8 hour Skype conversation about DWR and what we’re going to do with the half finished story The Tomb of the Stone Clock which we left on a crazy weird cliffhanger.
The reason the second half has been delayed so much, put simply, is because we’re perfectionists.
We have a script for the second half and it’s FINE but it’s also filler. We don’t want to deliver something which is ok, we want it to be worth the time spent us drawing it and you reading it.
So we’ve done some major rewrites to the second half to make it a bit more interesting and we are working on getting the rest of the comic out asap.
Yesterday we realised how amazingly talented Doctor Who writers and all TV writers really are. I think we spend so much of our time complaining about choices Doctor Who writers have made that we forget that fundamentally… writing several, even semi coherent and interesting plots every year IS A TALENT and should be admired more often. I completely understand them not always getting it right, or accidentally falling back on predictable elements … because at a base level… just that pure ability to write on demand is very impressive.
We need to discipline ourselves more, set ourselves more TV-like deadlines. We are so excited to share the twists and turns in upcoming DWR issues that we need to just crack on with it.
Anyway, this whole post is just a big heartfelt apology. Our fanbase has been so supportive and positive and we really appreciate you all waiting patiently for the next adventure of The Doctor and Daisy.
This is a tumblr comic project written by Hamish and illustrated by the also very talented and wonderful lydiabutz go check out their comic.
This is so cool! A really nice interpretation and you got their personalities spot on!
THINGS ARE HAPPENING. DWR IS COMING BACK. WE’RE SO SORRY. PROMISE US.
Currently writing the DWR finale.

You will discover in the series exactly when DWR takes place, so please be patient.
Did you know that when Series 1 of New Who was written, RTD and co never even discussed whether the Doctor was the 9th or not? It was something decided way later when newspapers asked (at the time Richard E Grant was the ‘current’ 9th Doctor).
HOWEVER, Day of the Doctor did make me and Lydia have to rethink some things… but that was more to do with similarities with something we’d written and being wowed by the stuff in that story and feeling we couldn’t top it, then having to change sometimes due to that episode changing the ‘whoniverse’ so to speak.
(We both really loved Day of the Doctor by the way!)
- We’ve sent him flowers.
Anybody spot that in DWR we did a Derren Brown joke first?
Great minds eh…
More excellent work computer.
Keep it up.
Episode 2: The Tomb of the Stone Clock
Page 1 of Part 3 of 4. Just the one page for now, since we’ve been on vacation a bit too long and you’ve been wonderfully patient. So thank you for waiting! Have a page! Hopefully, the rest of part 3 will follow soon.

The Doctor revisiting a famous location (with bonus Lydia)
"At the universe’s largest amusement park, Carouselus, there is a mirror maze that transverses dimensions. Said to be the most complex maze ever built, it was easily the park’s most popular attraction. That is until people began to disappear."
Been sitting on this idea for a while. I thought it would be fun to do with the Doctor and companion from Doctor Who Regenerated.
