Burrunjors Tall Tales is a fiction blog featuring several ongoing fantasy, horror and sci fi series starring both original and classic genre characters such as The Doctor and King Kong.
Most of these series take place in the same universe, creating a shared continuity.
The Circus Master
A fantasy, horror series about a time travelling, magic circus, piloted by a misfit group of Vampires, Demons, Witches, Aliens and people from throughout history.
The Circus Folk are led by the eponymous Circus Master, a reformed Vandal (soul sucking Demonic arch rivals to the Vampires.)

Carlene: The Jazz Vampire
Former soul and Jazz singer in 1960s London Carlene Philips is turned into a Vampire by a deranged stalker and must now learn to control her thirst for blood, whilst battling the forces of darkness. This series is a period piece and combines gothic horror and crime fiction.
Many centuries ago Professor William Cushing, a scientist and the latest in a long line of Vampire killers discovered through his experiments with magic, a place outside of time itself, called the Nexus. There he constructed a castle using magic where he recruits Vampire hunters from all over time and space to battle the undead throughout history. This organisation would come to be known as The Cushings after Williams family.
The Vampire menace is not just restricted to earth however. Due to infecting the Martians who visited the earth early in man’s development, the curse of Vampirism was able to spread to Mars where it destroyed the red planet, before spreading out into the wider universe.
The Vampires have since built up an empire and destroyed countless worlds and galaxies. The Cushing must also battle the creator and father of the Vampire race, the first ever Demon, Khastran.

Doctor Who: An Alternate Sequel Series
An alternate sequel to the original Doctor Who series (1963-1989) that takes place in an alternate universe to the 21st century version of Doctor Who.
In this universe the Time War never happened and so the 9th-13th Doctors are completely different to those from the revival and are based on different actors.
The 9th Doctor is based on Dylan Moran, the 10th Doctor is based on Tim Curry, the 11th Doctor is based on Robert Carlyle, the 12th Doctor is based on Julian Barratt, whilst the 13th Doctor is based on Julian Richings.
