Our chums over at Doctor Who Online have announced the return of their popular VortExtra section. VortExtra began back in 2007 as a way of providing post-episode features that take the televised stories beyond what you see on screen.

We all know what happens in the televised stories, but we never really find out what happened just before or just after The Doctor’s involvement in each adventure, as so began their quest to provide fans with just that; a Prologue and an Epilogue for every televised story – complete with Episode Guide entry links.

DWO have officially relaunched VortExtra, starting with the very first televised story; An Unearthly Child. Each Prologue and Epilogue will contain accompanying illustrations from some of the finest artists and illustrators around (who also happen to be Doctor Who fans), together with narration options and interactivity links.

Each week the DWO team will bring you a brand new VortExtra in random order from the shows 49-year history – including Classic and New Series adventures. They’re are also looking for fans with experience in writing to send in their submissions. A selection of the best material will make it through to have their stories made into a VortExtra with accompanying artwork and narration.
If you wish to take part, please E-mail the DWO team, together with a sample of your writing/artwork to: vortextra@drwho-online.co.uk
