When my local radio station announced a Doctor Who contest, with prizes include a book of DW scripts and five DVDs, I was naturally interested. Write a plot for a Doctor Who episode in 500 words or less? Hey, I can do that.
I sent in my e-mail, and a couple of days later I was listening to the afternoon show and Joel Rheinberger announced they'd be reading one of the entries in the contest.
To say I was happy with it would be an understatement -- the reading with music and sound effects just bowled me over. I almost thought I was listening to the BBC.
So if nothing else goes well this pre-Christmas week, I at least have the consolation of having heard my own words come back to me over the wireless.
They'll soon be calling me the Orson Welles of North Hobart -- though they might have my build rather than my intellect in mind....
