About

Welcome to Botcherby’s. The Doctor Who fan audios database and blog. There are 3 basic goals for this site.

1. To maintain a full listing of all fan produced Doctor Who audio dramas, and some relevant spin-offs. Where possible providing links to the creators websites and downloads. The audios are listed by production group, with episode details below. Take a look at the pages above to see what’s listed so far.

2. To post details of newly released audio dramas. Occasionally they’ll be trailers for forthcoming releases too. You can use the RSS feed to easily keep up to date.

3. For those audios that have been lost in the winds of time, Botcherby’s will be contacting old producers for permission to host them for short periods, and hopefully get the authors comments too. You’ll find this on the Theatre page.

At this point I’d like to say a big thank you to David Parker, who kindly provided the artwork for our header. I hope you agree it looks fantastic. There’s a link to his online portfolio in the blogroll.

Also in the blogroll are links to the currently active audio groups. It can be hard to define what active is, as some groups only make slow progress due to the nature of creating these freely distributed fan projects, and others may only be re-releasing old material. If you think I’ve missed someone off the list that deserves to be there, drop me a comment or send an email to botcherbys at googlemail dot com.

Some groups also produce more than just Doctor Who audios, so do check out their other material. You’ll also notice Big Finish in there and the database. Quite a few people from there also worked in fan audios first, and being a professional fully licensed group they deserve a mention. None of the fan groups want to infringe on their or the BBC’s copyright, and I recommend you buy some of their releases and support the franchise. They really are very good.

So, if you’ve a love of all things Who check back here regularly, or use the RSS feed, and I’ll keep you posted.

Thanks for keeping folks informed about all the great fan material out there! And especially for keeping them informed about our own, Dream Realm Enterprises’ Fan Produced Doctor Who Series! It’s great to have support from folks like yourselves. One correction, if I may; our group has actually been active since 2003, not 2005. Our first release was actually in August of 2004 and was the first part of “The Mines of Mandor”, which was in pre-production since late ’03. Thanks again, guys! Keep up the great work! Our next Who release comes at you in January ’09!

All the best,

Jon
