WikiaSorryThe second story of the Sorry Doctor’s third wave is now available to listen to for free!

Welcome to Pleasant City, the best place ever. Behold the people cartwheeling with joy. Don’t they look happy? And all of this was made possible by everyone’s best friend, the Puppeteer!

The story stars Daniel Sherratt as the Doctor, David McLaughlin as David, Beckie Hough as Pip, Matthew Chambers as Bobbins, Ronan Goron as the Puppeteer, Jon Gransden as Wilfred, Gary Gillespie as Samo and Billy Treacy as the Old Man and the Citizens.

This episode has been a long time coming – much longer than intended. It’s also the longest Sorry Doctor episode to date.

The Aimless Wanderings Forum is Closing Down (Again!)

After several months of fun – and yes, a few hiccups too – it is with heavy hearts that we here at 5WF have decided to close down the Aimless Wanderings Forum.

There are a few reasons behind this. Firstly, it was becoming impossible for us to regulate, even though the number of you visiting and using it were fairly modest. We’ve also been receiving a massive influx of spam from new users that don’t exist. As well as this, the bandwidth being taken up is phenomenal, and we’re looking into cheaper alternatives (it’s becoming increasingly difficult to fund our online escapades!). Unfortunately, the number of active users does not justify the time and the cost.

The moment is being prepared for…

We’re still very happy with what we’ve achieved, and encourage you all to stay creative. We recommend continuing with your fan-fictions and discussions on social networks like Facebook or Twitter. Of course, there’s nothing stopping one of you setting up your own forum for the countless noun Doctors roaming our forum presently!

We know a lot of you have stuff on there you’d like to keep, so just in case you haven’t saved these things elsewhere, we’re giving you all a week’s notice before we shut down the Forum and obliterate it for good. There will be no way to re-access any information.

Thanks to everyone who got involved, and we hope you’ll forgive us for DESTROYING YOUR WORLD.

The apocalypse commences on Wednesday 20th July, at 19:00 (GMT).

Further Apologies – Further Details and Cover Art Released!

From Telford with Love
From Telford with Love

From Telford with Love: Telford is a modern city with a thriving shopping quarter and a popular local radio station. The Doctor despises it, but is he justified?

David's-Pint
David’s Pint

David’s Pint: Okay, right, so there’s this audio, yeah? And it’s got, like, three stories inside another story and it’s going to be really, really mega good.

The Living Dead Men: Death can be sudden, but also very painful! Why not give your loved ones the nicest entrance to the afterlife by enlisting the skills of the Pennyweather siblings? We will collect, preserve and restore your loved ones… all for a reasonable price!

Dazzled: No matter how much control he claims to have, there will always be consequences for the Doctor…

Where’s Aimless Wanderings? A Message from the Pompous Doctor…

May has come and gone, and we’ve missed out two of our deadlines, for which we can only apologise. To soften the blow, we snatched away a Doctor to explain the difficult truth.

The Brewery and Pip shall be out eventually, and work is well underway for both. Unfortunately, having some incredibly talented people involved with our stories does have its down sides, as such folks are often busy with actual paid work – and rightly so!

We can’t give you any new dates, because we don’t want to let you down again, but as soon as our stories are ready, we’ll be releasing them to the world…

Thank you for your patience!
