5th Doctor
The only customs in this story are the Kraath- a new race of monsters. They don't look quite as monstrous as I'd hoped so may have a redesign further down the line. Too late for their next appearance which will be next month. The base figures were wrestlers from Poundland. They were last seen as Milo from Backwards.
The Jenny Lewis figure makes her first her first appearance as April Moon and could return at some point.
When looking for a group to be her subordinates and not wishing to use the VOC robots again and continuity-bound not to use the Ood, I settled for the Weevils. Since it's now the 25th Century, Weevils could have advanced enough to operate machinery.

I hate gratuitous Doctor team-ups. They are the epitomy of fan w#nk and something that the AFT reserves only for special occassions.
But with the release of the utterly fantastic William Hartnell figure, I was suddenly reminded of an article in Doctor Who Magazine back in the 1980s which revealed that some lost footage from an abandoned Hartnell story had been unearthed and would be put together with newly shot material from the (then) current Doctor, Peter Davison to form a new adventure The Phoenix Rises.
Ofcourse, this turned out to be an April fool's joke but now with these figures, it can be a reality. Sadly, I don't have the article anymore so there are probably several plot elements that I could have nicked- er- borrowed. But there are nods to the article in my story in that Professor Moon is called April and the story takes place on the 1st of April 2498.
The emponymous 'phoenix' is my new monster race, the Kraath. Having Hartnell means we can introduce a new monster early in the Doctor's life and have them return to battle all the Doctors. If this does happen, they'll certainly be getting a makeover.

The comic look in the Outpost Who exclusive AFT episode

The story was shot in two sessions. All the scenes aboard the station were done in one block, with the remaining TARDIS sequences for part 2 done back to back with two more upcoming adventures.
This story sees the first use of my new camera which has a far superior macro facility allowing for much crisper images. So hopefully no more camera shaky blurred pictures.

For the editing, a new look is attempted to make the story look more like a comic. In recent years the frames have been broken up into regular sized panels which made editing simple but looked bit static and lifeless. It's hoped that this new look (as long as it lasts) will enhance the story telling.

Photoshopped: The composite image of the planet Tempus

For the 5th Doctor this story takes place in the AFT niche created by Decoy To Denebola after The Awakening.
For the first Doctor it's a little more tricky. He never travelled alone but without figures of any of his companions we're forced to create a point where he did. He's alone when he's taken out of time for The Three Doctors and The Five Doctors so this story probably takes place after one of them as he's on his way back to his proper time stream. Exactly when in his time stream this occurs is harder to pin down.
As later AFT stories will suggest, it has to be sometime during season three as he is aware of the events of The Dalek Masterplan. It could be at some point during The War Machines but for now, we'll have to keep it vague.
The Doctor's 'telepathic conference' was used in The Three Doctors.
