    Don’t even want to think of where we’d be if that meeting hadn’t happened!

    We’d have had one series on Channel 5 of “Doc Who?” starring Dexter Fletcher. I shudder at the thought.

    I think the audios with classic Doctors would have kept on as they have almost exactly and I think the classic Doctor novels would have stayed alive. DWM and the like would have continued— pretty much all things that thrived during the wilderness years would have carried on. And I think it’s very likely that the Scream of the Shalka production team might have continued as well producing the animated adventures of the Richard E. Grant 9th Doctor.

    The world would not know Eccleston, Tennant, Smith or Capaldi nearly as well as they do now, although they obviously would continue acting and that goes for many companions. No Torchwood, no Sarah Jane Adventures and BBC would lose untold countless millions in revenue. All in all, things would likely be a bit more dull on Saturday the 23rd of November this year too……
