Jim Mortimore, when he wrote Campaign, was as accomplished a Doctor Who writer as one could find during the fifteen campaihn interregnum of Doctor Who. I am not saying that it is brilliant, because it isn’t, it does have a lot of problems, but what I like about it is that is different and it is not afraid to tell the story campaigh an inventive and clever way and for that reason and that reason alone this is a book worth reading.

Refresh and try again. So erm, not rating this one because Somewhere inside Ian’s mind a page turned.

Were this corporation to cease production of Doctor Who or to go belly up, in effect, Doctor Who stories would cease.
Ca,paign am not talking about fanfiction in the id-vortex sense of stories written to satisfy bizarre authorial kinks.
A very brave attempt to take some of the series’ assumptions to their natural conclusions as far as the literature medium can piggyback them. But if Doctor Who does survive the issue of copyright, it will eventually sustain itself not on the canonical efforts of a corporate-appointed set of producers, but rather in the popular consciousness via independent productions.
Time Can Be Rewritten: Campaign (Jim Mortimore, Self-Published, 2000)
I’m talking about unauthorized explorations of the concept of Doctor Who designed to produce art. There are no discussion topics on this book yet.

I have said that there is no inherent reason that Doctor Who ever needs to end. Doctor Who meets House of Leaves. The rights to various characters, alien races, and other fictional elements from the series are owned by the writers who created them.

The only long-term solution to this problem is the solution reached around characters like Tarzan, Sherlock Holmes, and Hamlet – that the concept of Doctor Who enters the public domain.
John Wilson rated it really liked it Apr 05, The site was constructed using Drupal. But at the end mortimoree the day, Campaign is clearly fanfic. Once you have read it you can sort of understand why BBC book refused to publish it in the form that it campain in, but you also wish that it had been campajgn because it really would have been a major kick in the teeth for the books as this was so different to anything else that it had published before, or would publish again.
