Time Scope (Charity Book)

Doctor Who fans from around the world have joined forces to raise funds for Scope, the disability equality charity. Time Scope is an unofficial and unauthorised Doctor Who charity anthology e-book containing 50 short stories interspersed with poetry and artwork, which 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.

Compiled entirely in lockdown in 2020, all 114 contributors – who range in age from 13 to 90 – 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 lockdown owing to the COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic.

Selling for £6.99 with 100% of proceeds going to the charity Scope, Time Scope is available to purchase now from www.timescope2020.bigcartel.com

    I’ve contributed to this, and have to say it’s an amazing anthology and well worth the £6.99

      Was going to get it but it’s only an ebook so will have to leave it. Bit of a shame really.

      Hi – in response to the anonymous reply below – the anthology is an e-book rather than a physical publication right now as it had to be produced quickly during lockdown so it could be sold quickly to get money to the charity as soon as possible given the hole in their finances lockdown created. Also, as the project was devised at the peak of the pandemic in the UK, it was not felt manufacturing and posting out a physical product would be the wisest thing right now – the e-book format mitigated the risk of transmission on surfaces. The e-book format has also allowed for quick sales internationally.

      That’s perfectly fine but I don’t buy ebooks. If this was a physical book I’d buy it. It’s not a complaint just an observation

      I think the question Anonymous wants to ask is, do you have a schedule date for physical publication, or is it still too much up in the air what with ‘everything’ going on? And congrats on the book, Paul

      Yes Neil. I’m not saying I don’t want this, I’m saying I can’t but an ebook. I physically can’t read ebooks, they give me migraines. If a physical book is done I’ll buy it happily. If there are no plans for a physical book that will be a shame but that’s just the way it is.
