DOCTOR WHO stage play

Some time ago, I wrote a pure passion project, a full-length West End stage play based upon DOCTOR WHO.  This play is a writer's labour of love only, and not for professional production, but it is available to any Whovians who wish to read it.  Contact me via Twitter on @WriterLad with an email, and I will forward as a PDF document.

This play is a stand-alone piece,  completely independently of any specific era of the show, and has its own Doctor.   Outline below.

DOCTOR WHO: A Light In The Dark

A play by Andrew Hawcroft
Based on the BBC Television series


Earth:  Present Day -  Eastern Europe:

At the end of the Carpathian mountain range, in the Romanian district of Orsova,
there stands a poorly-maintained, near-derelict orphanage amongst the jagged
rocks and frozen, unforgiving woodlands.   Inside, six children, led by the remarkable
14 year-old Romanian girl, Florina Pellea, attempt to survive the brutish  reign of
orphanage director Gregor, and onsite ‘health care provider’, Nurse Oskovitch.

When things are at their ugliest, like an answer to their prayers, there arrives a strange
 man who travels in a large blue box.  He claims he is chasing a villain from another
world, but makes time to finally bring some hope and happiness into the lives of the
 children he finds in that ghastly place.

Unfortunately, that villain will turn the tables, and force The Doctor and Florina to
 travel to an ice-bound world to retrieve The Orborium, the most dangerous object in
existence, from the most dangerous location in existence.

And in the end, The Doctor, having travelled alone for too long, will learn from a
fourteen  year-old girl the importance of friendship in the least friendly place one  
could imagine...
