ABOUTThe purpose of this blog is to explore the world of Doctor Who in all its forms to draw out useful ideas that can be used in the Doctor Who: Adventures in Time and Space (DWAITS) published by Cubicle 7. I've been roleplaying for decades and have been a Who fan even longer. With the publication of a new system it seemed the perfect time to generate material to fuel campaigns for years to come.
BROKEN HEROESBroken Heroes is a full length novel by the writer of this blog. In Silver City a secret community play at being superheroes and villains but someone isn't playing by the rules. When people start turning up dead one woman must discover who is responsible before more people die but she has a secret of her own.
