Dr. Who And A Contest ~

It’s no secret, I’m an enormous Dr. Who fan.  No, I don’t have a Tardis Talking Cookie Jar (in England shouldn’t it be referred to as a biscuit jar?)

or even a Dr. Who  set of minatures ~

However, that said ~ I’m also a fan of contests that get “young-uns” involved and creative.  Enter  BBC Learning in collaboration with Blue Peter announced this year’s Script to Screen competition:

“Launched by the Doctor himself, the challenge was simple. Schoolchildren aged 9-11 should write a short Olympics-themed script full of the usual Doctor Who ingredients including humour, drama and a touch of magic!

There was a huge response to the competition and Doctor Who’s Executive Producer, Caroline Skinner, praised the quality of the entries, saying: ‘We loved reading all of the scripts from schools across the UK and the standard of entries was truly outstanding. It was a difficult, but a tremendously fun task to choose a winner and it was just brilliant to see so many children being creative in developing an adventure for the Doctor. We hope all fans enjoy this special one-off mini episode!'”

Stephen Moffat picked the winner – and here’s the episode complete with sonic screwdriver and weeping angel … and the Olympics – who knew?”
