‘I do love a nice old-fashioned invasion.’
Intended as the first in a series of online animated dramas, Scream of the Shalka (2003) was the first attempt to redefine Doctor Who for the 21st century. Following a traditional narrative formula, it rethinks the Doctor, the companion and the Master in ways that anticipate the later revived series. A victim of timing as much as of its own flaws, it remains a fascinating glimpse into an alternative vision for Doctor Who.

“A grandly ambitious thing to attempt with something as exhaustively detailed as (Who). But they actually manage it. Treat your bookshelf."
