New Script-To-Screen Competition

It’s back!  The competition that creates palpable sparks of creativity in Britain’s Primary School children and howls of bitter, bitter envy in older writers – it’s the Doctor Who Script-To-Screen Competition!

This time around children aged 9-11 are being asked to help the Doctor, Amy and Rory escape from The Land of Fiction (yes, the very same, very cheap location the Doctor visited previously in the Troughton era serial The Mind Robber) using their imaginations to create a brand new Olympics themed mini episode.

And here’s the Doctor himself to lay down the rules in the first and very idiosyncratic video challenge.

There’ll be several more challenges in the coming weeks – where various members of the Doctor Who crew will guide the mini-Moffats through the challenge of creating a story and turning into a script – as teams across Britain compete win this once in a life time (well, once every year in a lifetime) opportunity.

Last years winning script by the pupils of Oakley Junior School, Basingstoke Death is the Only Answer saw the Doctor meeting ‘fellow time traveller’ Albert Einstein (before he went a bit Ood) and featured in the now cancelled Doctor Who Confidential – perhaps this year’s entry will feature in one of 87 million programmes set to air around the London 2012 games?

The competition is now open and will close at midnight on 16th March. For more information head over to the BBC Schools site.





Everyone has a favourite Doctor and mine - just for his honesty, his fairness and his ability to not notice the Master's awful, awful disguises/anagrams (Sir Gilles Estram!?!) - has to be the Fifth Doctor, Peter Davison. The stories didn’t serve him as well as his acting served those stories.
