DVD Giveaway — Doctor Who: The Sensorites


Thanks to the wonderful people at Roadshow Entertainment it is again time to WIN WIN WIN! Yes, that’s right… three times… WIN WIN WIN. We have three DVD copies of the classic Doctor Who story “The Sensorites”.

“The Sensorites” is a six-part story from the very first season of Doctor Who, starring William Hartnell as the Doctor. You can check out my review here.

So, do you want to win your very own copy? Here’s how…

Complete the following quote from The Sensorites:
“Weakling! Betrayer of our people! Coward! I should imprison you in some room wherein no light can shine and fill that room with…”
PLEASE NOTE that the judge will be looking for creative/humorous answers rather than what was actually said in the episode. So put on your thinking caps!

Email your response to givanoff@optusnet.com.au

You must be an Australian resident to enter, and you can only enter once. The judge’s decision is final and no correspondence on the matter will be entered into. Got that? Good!

The competition closes at 5pm (Melb time) on Friday 2 March 2012, after which I will pass all the answers over to our guest judge, without the names of the entrants. He will then pick three winners. I will then contact the winners by email to get postal addresses. Please note that it must be an Australian postal address.

Now, let me introduce you to our guest judge, Australian author Simon Haynes.

Born in the UK and raised in the south of Spain, Simon emigrated to Australia with his family in 1983. He’s published four Hal Spacejock novels, one Hal Junior novel and several short stories, and he divides his time between writing fiction and computer software.

Simon’s goal is to write fifteen novels before someone takes his keyboard away. Check out his website for more info.

I asked Simon to tell us a little about his relationship with the classic Doctor Who series…

Ahh, Classic Who. It’s such a cliché, but I spent many happy hours cowering behind the sofa as a six-year-old, simultaneously drawn to and repulsed by the flickering black and white images. At the age of six you don’t notice wobbly sets, fluffed lines or the succession of humanoid monsters dressed in tinfoil and latex. No, at an age where everything else in your life is supposed to be happy and colourful and jolly, Doctor Who was mostly savage, brutal and scary. And I loved it!

Throw in a childhood love of The Goodies and you’ll understand why I write science fiction comedy.

Thanks, Simon.
