As the lockdown rewatch of Doctor Who episodes continued with the Tennant episodes Human Nature and The Family of Blood, so too does the awesome extra material.

The new short, The Shadow in the Mirror, takes place after the episodes and was written by Paul Cornell and read by Lauren Wilson,

In the story the character of Lucy Cartwright, the daughter of the family meets the new regeneration of the Doctor.

The fantastic artwork is by Christopher Jones and you can listen to the story below.

Someone wants to get out. Someone thinks they should…

‘The Shadow in Mirror’ was specially created as an epilogue to the Doctor Who episodes ‘Human Nature’ & ‘The Family of Blood’, released as part of #DoctorOfMine, the worldwide tweetalong of this two-parter which took place on Friday 24 April 2020.

Written by Paul Cornell and starring Lauren Wilson as Lucy Cartwright, ‘The Shadow in the Mirror’ 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….
