Doctor Who Fan Filming at Windsor, UK (Imaginarium Productions)

On 30th October 2014, my friends and I drove up to Windsor Town – yes, same place where Royal Windsor Castle is!    It was for filming scenes of one of our  fan DrWho video stories – previously called `CyberGenesis’   (I;ll come to that in a bit).    The story involves  `our’ Doctor  suddenly appearing (No TARDIS)  in Windsor, and getting caught up in a plot by a mysterious villain called The Shaman – who seems to have found the perfect way to blackmail the Doctor – and force him to steal an artefact from  Windsor Castle itself!!

We filmed outside the castle, and then went to the Windsor Great Park – that’s a great big forest!    To do more location shots..   Filming continued few days later in another woods..

Here’s a short fun video that my sister filmed of us  (cast and crew) on that day in Windsor. 🙂

And now here’s the exciting bit..    We are almost close to wrapping up the filming for `this’ series…(7 stories)..and will soon start editing and uploading online- where you can watch it for free (from late November onwards!)

That’s not all..    We start pre-production on the `next series’ to be  filmed from Spring 2015 onwards and shown  from early Summer 2015.       I say `series’ but to be honest, it’s a rolling schedule..    We’ll fil, edit and show..and film..and onwards..   As and when our stories are complete.    We are entirely dependant on friends’ and fellow fans’ support, participation and even creative contributions..

ps.   The story we are filming is no longer to be titled as `CyberGenesis’. This is due to the shocking discovery that the BBC’s own Doctor Who story `Dark Water/ Death in Heaven’ starring Peter Capaldi as The Doctor – showed very similar concepts to our original version (which we had been writing/ working on since December 2013!!!     If we carried on the same ideas, fans would be  bored, or might say, they copied the BBC’..  So we have had a rethink and are changing some of the concepts..   and removing the emphasis on The Cyberman..and putting it on…Hern..  a horned God/ mythological figure that roams Windsor Great PArk..

Lucifer’s Legacy – Doctor Who Imaginarium Fan production- coming soon!

Doctor Who Imaginarium – is the name of our Fan Production Series…yes series..!   It all started as a fun photoshoot in London outside that `Earl’s Court TARDIS’   on Christmas Eve last year (24th Dec’2013)  .. and before we know it, we were frantically doing an actual (spontaneous) episode  in January this year (2014)..  just days before my friend Sandra Tena was flying back to Mexico.

Then my mind got churning..  ideas started to flow..   I figured I needed a team..and more `Doctors’.

So by the time Sandra came back to Uk in late June’14,   there was a whole plan in motion..

Zip forward to today..   we have filmed 5-6 stories…and 2-3 are in pre-production..  (that means I am working on scripts and stories – in my sleep, in my showers, in the trains & buses and on my laptop.. 🙂  and it also means various rooms of my home are in chaos..with half created masks, costumes and props..).

Did I say we took a full size (cardboard) Dalek and filmed on top of the Glastonbury Tor?    Did I also say that we are going to Windsor Great Park / Castle…next week…to film another story?   Oh..I just did…Jolly good.

It all starts with a new beginning to the history (pre-history) of Gallifrey..   There’s Kronos, there’s a Dark Guardian of Time..and there’s Lucifer..   but not the one you think you know..

We have new age DAlek-Om, meditating Cybermen in Afterlife, Alpha-Centauri, the Great Vampire (not as you’ve seen them before), zombies, a mysterious Morgaine, a time travelling gene splicing Shaman.  amongst many things…

Oh..and a female Doctor..!

Didn’t I say?   🙂

I’ll be starting a new blog for all updates on this..but for now..  this post is a launch pad!
