April 13th, 2020 by Marc Comments

The Doctor Who watchalong episodes continue and on Saturday night – April 11th – the episode The Doctor’s Wife aired and for it legendary writer Neil Gaiman penned a new short starring past Who stars Arthur Darvill as Rory Willams and – very briefly – Karen Gillan’s Amy Pond.

The episode is cute and fun and gives us a nice sign-off for Rory and Amy and acts as a mice message for those fans (well, all fans probably) currently in lockdown.

It’s 1946. Eight years after he was sent back in time by the Weeping Angels, Rory Williams is dictating his biography…

‘Rory’s Story’ was specially created as an introduction to #BiggerOnTheInside, the worldwide watchalong of the Doctor Who episode ‘The Doctor’s Wife’ , which took place online on Saturday 11 April 2020. Written by Neil Gaiman and starring Arthur Darvill as Rory, ‘Rory’s Story’ was home-produced remotely during the ‘lockdown’ period of the COVID-19 outbreak in April 2020.

All involved in the making of this video contributed their time and talent for free.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
