We're Recruiting!


Note: We are no longer recruiting as we have found our new writers. 


It's an exciting time to be a Whovian at the moment and we have an opportunity for you to be part of the action. We are looking for someone to join our team and contribute to The Gallifrey Times, whether this be by posting news, writing original articles or producing media.

With the announcement of the new Doctor imminent and a new cast and crew taking over next year, there will be lots of news and updates to be talking about. We are looking for a good writer who loves Doctor Who and is active in the Whovian community. You will need to be able to keep up to date with the latest news and be available to post regularly.

But why would you want to write for us? Well, since 2008 we have established ourselves as one of the leading sources for Doctor Who news, bringing fans the latest news as it happens. We have ingrained ourselves within the community, engaging with fans at comic cons and on platforms like Whovians Amino. Through our interviews with the cast and crew members, we have made a name for ourselves and our readership continues to grow.

As we move into a new era under Chibnall's reign, we will be developing our output to include things like event coverage, reviews and podcasting, so skills in any of these areas would be most welcome. 

Although this is a purely voluntary position, it is a great opportunity to play a bigger role in the Doctor Who community, establish yourself as a writer and join a fun, friendly team. To apply, simply read the questions below and send your answers to [email protected]. Remember to include your name, age and location (the last two aren't important, we're just curious!)

Which of these would you be interested in doing and why?
  • News
  • Reviews
  • Podcast
  • Event coverage
  • Opinion pieces
How have you been involved in the Doctor Who community? 
(e.g. attending comic cons, writing fan fiction)

Please write a short review of one episode from Series 10 
(max. 400 words)

The deadline for applications is the morning of Monday 10th July. We will contact the new team member shortly after.
