Ex-Doctor Who Script Editor Andrew Cartmel Chats to the PodKast

Andrew Cartmel on the PodKast!

Whoah yes, former Doctor Who script editor Andrew Cartmel (1987-1989) joins us on the podKast (with a “K”) this week to chat about a new project, Doctor Who Fan Fiction Illustrated!

With Hans Christian Vang as his partner for this exciting new crowdsourcing proposal, Andrew is onboard to further the legendary “Cartmel Masterplan” – the term given to the restoration of mystery and mystique that typified his time on the show.

This week, you won’t find a mysterious time-wimey “Previously on next week’s podKast” sentence to look out for – instead, it should pop up in the next podKast.

Now, if you’re a new listener, here’s how you can listen to our weekly podKast:

  1. Use the player in the top right of each page on Kasterborous.
  2. Listen with the “pop out” player above, which also allows you to download the podKast to your computer.
  3. Third, you can take advantage of the RSS feed to subscribe to the podKast for your media player, and also find us on iTunes!

Now then, the important part: please back Fan Fiction Illustrated at www.indiegogo.com/ffidw – should the project not go ahead, funds will be returned to the backers, so no one is out of pocket.

We weren’t entirely clear with the way in which the chosen funding model works while recording the podKast, but can explain more below.

If enough money is raised to do a smaller print run, that options will be taken. While the goal is to do 1500-2000 units, if enough is raised to do 1000 then that is what will happen. Below this, and Hans will cancel the project. (Note that IndieGoGo offers two funding options, Fixed and Flexible. If the fixed option was used, the project would automatically be cancelled even if enough was gathered to do a smaller print run – so flexible has been selected.)

Everybody wins – but we’re backing Hans and Andrew to produce what promises to be a major new player in the Doctor Who comic strip world!
