Hello! I'm Shauny

Hey, I’m Shauny - creator of the TARDIS Guide website.

I registered the domain 3 years ago (almost to the day! February 2021) because I had an idea - a database of Doctor Who TV stories, which you can filter by Doctor, companion, monster, and more. Then I realised I could expand it into Big Finish, which I had dabbled with and was just getting into even more.

Boy did I not realise what I had let myself in for! I didn’t quite realise the size and scope of Big Finish, and then I started adding books as well…

It took a long time of slowly updating the site until I finally finished all of TV last year and opened the site up for beta users. Then I started adding the audios.

I had a family member who was very unwell at the time, and we had a lot of time on our hands, so I spent a very long time with my nose in a laptop doing this, it was a good distraction.

By winter 2023 I had a very large database, and had added loads of features like quotes as well. I started to spread the word (after hesitating a lot, because perfect is the enemy of good) and had around 180 users by the end of 2023.

Then in January 2023 I started to publicise the site even more - spurred on by a need to see if all this effort was worth making! It seems to have paid off, because now we have over 800 members, growing daily.

I added a Discord server which is a lot of fun, but some people are clamouring for an old fashioned forum, so here we are!

Enjoy the site, let me know if you have any questions, allons-y!


I forgot to actually say anything about myself :sweat_smile:

I’m late 30s, and married to a really great guy :blush: we have 2 sons from his previous marriage, who I have known since they were little. We get together often and play board games and watch movies!

I live in the South East of England, UK!


Hadn’t realised you were in the south east - we’re probably not that far away from each other!

Ah where are you? I’m near Woodbridge.

Near Croydon. So probably not that close but only a couple of hours I think.

Far enough that I don’t have to worry about you knocking on my door to ask when I’ve finished adding The Collection Season 17 Special Edition Blu Ray to the site then :sweat_smile:


You cheeky bugger!!! :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:

[pedant mode] And it’s Standard Edition not Special Edition [/pedant mode]

Hi there. Welcome to the site. :upside_down_face:

We have TV Club Audio Club Book Club and Comic Club. They’re good places to jump into and give your spicy opinions :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:

If there is anything you want to know about in the site or forum, feel free to ask, and we will point you in the right direction.

I hope you enjoy your stay.


He actually does need to join us in the Comic Club - and he’s weeks behind in the books and audio :smiley:


Is he behind or in a new time zone?


Or a signal delay from being on another planet. It wouldn’t surprise me at this point.
