Timeless Doctors Crew

Behind The Scenes

Stuart Humphryes

- Writer, Producer, Director, Video Editor, Sound Designer & SFX Artist

Known by his on-line moniker BabelColour since 2006, Stuart first wrote and produced the original Ten Doctor's web serial in September 2009, upon which the opening of 'The Timeless Doctors' is based. Since then, the episodes and associated trailers have passed beyond a million views. 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 [March 2010] and had features 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. The first 3 trailers for the Timeless Doctors re-imagining received the monthly YouTube recommendations from Doctor Who Magazine, issues #546, #573 and #577. The Re-Imagined version has been rebuilt from scratch, telling the same opening narrative with a new script, using new footage and newly recorded dialogue. Hundreds of special FX have been created by Stuart for this new fan-film including CGI, compositing and colourisation shots. You can follow the BabelColour Twitter feed HERE.

 

Andi Warren

- Composer

Andi is a composer with a particular interest in retrofuturist aesthetics and bridging the gaps between the traditional and experimental, gaining inspiration from the works of the BBC Radiophonic Workshop and King Crimson. This fusion is perfectly suited to the era-collided subject matter of the Ten Doctors Re-Imagined and, I have to say, I have been completely blown me away with the amazing quality of composition for this project and Andi's interpretation of the theme tune is the best re-working I think I've ever heard! You can enjoy a selection of their Doctor Who-related compositions on the Gwylock1 YouTube Channel and Soundcloud channel, or follow their Zagreus Twitter feed HERE and Tumblr channel HERE
