If you like to write short fiction about past Doctor’s, we’re always on the lookout for new stories to publish under the BE banner.

Story Requirements:

  1. Stories must be original whilst also fitting within established continuity set in the 1963-89 TV series

Submissions should contain the following information:

  2. Details of key characters/monsters/villains

Story proposals only need to be 4-6 paragraphs detailing the story plot, characters, setting and any other information you feel would go toward enabling the editorial board making an ideal assessment of your story for publication.
