Time Scope 2020
Time Scope 2020 was a Doctor Who-themed anthology produced in lockdown for UK disability charity Scope. My story, A Connection of Years Since, featured Ian and Barbara, friends of the First Doctor.
Doctor Who fans from around the world have joined forces to raise funds for Scope, the disability equality charity in England and Wales. This unofficial and unauthorised anthology of 50 short stories, interspersed with poetry and artwork, weaves its way through time and space visiting the Doctors and their friends. Along the way, cast and crew share their memories of working on the show and projects from the wider Whoniverse.
Sophie Iles provided a delightful illustration for A Connection of Years Since.
Compiled entirely in lockdown in 2020, all 114 contributors have given their work freely in order to support Scope at a time when the charity’s income has fallen dramatically owing to the necessity of having to close charity shops and cancel fundraising events during the COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic.
