Welcome to Serendipity

Last Alteration: Wednesday 19 December 2018


Please note: this site has not been updated in some time and information found upon it is more than likely out of date. Being one of the oldest Doctor Who sites on the Net, we do hope to kick it back into life sometime soon!

Welcome to the newly launched Serendipity website! After a lengthy period of "neglect", we're back in a newly updated, expanded format - if you were looking for anything that was on the old site please bear with us as this gets updated.

This site also now plays host to the Temporal Renovators, a London-based Doctor Who fan group, part of the Doctor Who Fan Network.

NEXT TEMPORAL RENOVATORS MEETING

Knight's Templar, Chancery Lane
Wednesday 28th November, from 6:00pm.

"Hello, Space Station Nerva, this is the Earth High Minister. The fact that you are hearing my voice in a message recorded thousands of years before the day in which you are now living, is a sure sign that our great undertaking, the salvation of the human race, has been rewarded with success. You have slept longer than the recorded history of mankind. And you stand now at the dawn of a new age. You will return to an Earth purified by flame, a world that we cannot guess at. If it be arid, you must make it flourish, if it be stony, you must make it fertile. The challenge is vast, the task enormous, but let nothing daunt you ..... Remember, Citizen Volunteers, that you are the proud standard bearers of our entire race. Of the millions that walk the world today, you are the chosen survivors. You have been entrusted with a sacred duty to see that human culture, human knowledge, human love and faith shall never perish from the universe. Guard what we have given you with all your strength. And now, across the chasm of the years, I send you the prayers and hopes of the entire world. God speed you to a safe landing."
- High Minister
The Ark in Space [3]

"Star Wars is adolescent nonsense; Close Encounters is obscurantist drivel; Star Trek can turn your brains to puree of bat guano; and the greatest science fiction series of all time is Doctor Who! And I'll take you all on, one-by-one or all in a bunch to back it up!"
-- Harlan Ellison
