Doctor Who and the X-Men: The Director’s Cut fanfic – Part 10

Part 10.


(Back in the SOL)

Tom: [singing] Ain’t gonna sit through this again.

After a brief jaunt to the future timeline (Earth-9910) Bishop wanted to visit, the TARDIS rematerialised in the X-Men’s grounds, and the Doctor went out to give his goodbyes. Bishop had come back with the Doctor, this was his home now.

Having no more reason to stay on within the X-Men’s universe, the Doctor was preparing to enter the TARDIS again, together with Hindle and his companions, who were on the X-Men’s Mansion grounds, playing a little baseball game with the X-Men. The game had stopped as soon as the TARDIS had materialised.

The Doctor told the X-Men that now they were prepared for whenever they might meet the Adversary and the Mara. He hoped to be back there when this would happen someday.

Crow: Oh, for a landmine.

An angry man entered the room in the TARDIS where the X-Men, the Sliders, Hindle, the Doctor and his companions were. “Another parallel version of myself”, he said looking at
Hindle. He was wearing military garb, his hand crouched behind him holding some deadly gun.

(Back in the SOL)
Tom: Who’s this guy now?
Mike: How should I know?

“Hindle!” Adric shouted.
There were two Hindles in the room. The one who just came in had a military beret, but one with some unrecognisable insignia. The new Hindle looked at the Professor – “You! But you were dead.”
“It seems you have mistaken me for somebody else.” Arturo looked untrustingly at the Hindle lookalike. “No, no, I’m Colonel Rickman and I killed you, Arturo a few hours ago! You can’t be alive!” Rickman said.

The Doctor’s Diary


(Back in the SOL)

Crow: Now airing on Sky One! Also on Canal Jimmy, TVM2 and Rai Due!

I took a deep breath when I arrived at the TARDIS doors.


(Back in the SOL)

Mike: And held it. And held it. And held it…

Crow: ‘Til I finally passed out and the fanfic ended!
X-Men
I turned slowly and looked towards the unbelieving mutants. I unlocked the doors, opened them and went inside.


(Back in the SOL)

Tom: It’s more Ratliff!

All: Aaaaah!!

“Well, won’t you follow me, come in!” I told the X-Men.

Part 3.

(Back in the SOL)
All: [singing] Watch out for that tree!

(PU, a couple of minutes back) Tegan exclaimed “Oh my God, that’s the Mara which had taken control of me, way back on Deva Loka!
Doctor, please don’t let it take control of me again!”
(Back in the SOL)
Crow: [Tegan] It might give me a personality or angst or something!

(PU)
Nyssa said “calm down Tegan, the Doctor will find a way, you know he always does.”
(Back in the SOL)
Mike: Funny how most of his solutions rarely work until he kicks the
console.

Doctor Who and the X-Men: The Rewrite of the Original, or The Director’s Cut – Part 2

Back to Part 1

Part 2.

A few days ago, The Doctor, Tegan, Nyssa and Adric were travelling in the TARDIS when suddenly something shook the TARDIS. Tegan was certain that the floor and the walls of the rooms of the TARDIS were melting or even disappearing.
Tegan had just experienced one of her recurring nightmares. She could not understand why she kept having these since she was now free of the Mara, according to the Doctor.

The Mara was a pure essence of evil, a primeval being.
She suspected the Mara was responsible for these dreams. On the Kinda’s world, Deva Loka, the Mara had taken control of her mind for its evil purposes, entering our universe in this way. But the Doctor had found a way to banish the Mara back to where it apparently came from, using a circle of mirrors.

The truth, however, was there was more than one Mara, and more than one kind. After the Federation had been formed, the earliest Mara (or Maras, it is not known) and its own Sumaran Empire had been defeated on Manussa, the Sumaran Empire homeworld, by the Federation’s flagship – the Enterprise – commanded by a young Jonathan B. Archer (the B. stood for Beckett as in Sam Beckett). The Mara was only banished to what the Doctor called the dark places of the inside. But was there one Mara, more than one, or a large number which were inter-connected like the Borg species were?

Original Version was Published on 24th December 1995 in THE SCROLLS OF GALLIFREY, a DOCTOR WHO FANZINE (FOURTH ISSUE)

A sequel of sorts to KINDA (1980’s Doctor Who episode with the 5th Doctor)

I wrote a sequel to this story starring the 5th Doctor Who and the Movie X-Men (Doctor Who and the X-Men: Version II) this time.
Following that I rewrote the original story as follows. It is now a different spin and take on the story, with the added guests of the Sliders and Hindle, and it happens during the Maximum Security events of 2000. It kick starts the WhoSliders series of fanfics.

Review: Doctor Who – Mara Tales (Kinda)

Share

Here’s a review of the classic Doctor Who series episode Kinda which has been released as part of the Mara Tales Box set.

The episode, my favourite classic episode, has recently been released on DVD. The picture quality is superb, having been digitally restored. There are even new CGI effects which can be chosen if one prefers. The story was well known for its not so good rubber snake… :)

The recent James Cameron movie Avatar was influenced very much by this story, even though Avatar was too pessimistic and anti-human, while Kinda is pro-human and a much more positive story.

It’s worth watching indeed. The enemy is the evil entity, coming from the collective unconscious, known as the Mara. I wrote my first fanfic from which the WhoSliders series emerged as a sequel to the Mara stories in Doctor Who, so it’s worth viewing if you read my fics. It takes a spiritual and anthropological approach to sci-fi pioneered by Ursula K. Le Guin.
Humans from earth are about to colonise planet S14, known to the locals as Deva Loka (the location is revisited in my fics too and Hindle becomes a WhoSlider). And the ancient evil known as the Mara emerges in the subconscious of the Doctor’s companion Tegan (played by the wonderful Janet Fielding). Nyssa is kept out of the story as she is recuperating.

The episode features Peter Davison as the 5th Doctor, Janet Fielding as Tegan, Matthew Waterhouse as Adric, Nerys Hughes as Todd, Simon Rouse as Hindle and Adrian Mills as Aris. It was directed by Peter Grimwade and written by Christopher Bailey. It is really worth getting on DVD and viewing. You can get from the following Amazon uk link..
