This is me. I have been known by my on-line moniker BabelColour since 2006 and first wrote and produced the original Ten Doctor's web serial in September 2009.

Episode 3 was premiered at the Armada Con 23 Doctor Who Convention before its release and Digital Spy voted the work amongst 'The 8 Most Amazing Fan Videos on YouTube'. The story was recommended by SFX Magazine and had a feature in the Huston Press and a beautiful multi-page article in Theta Morbius Times magazine. The minutia of the story was also wonderfully analysed by the TV Tropes website HERE. For the Re-Imagined version I have rebuilt the story from scratch, telling the same narrative with a new script, using new footage and newly recorded dialogue as 'The Voice'.
