Episode 8 features the Nixi who inhabit the planet Nix, the unidentical twin to Brobree orbiting the twin suns – “circumbinary planets”. After writing my fictional solar system I found out that in 2012 such a system called Keppler-47 was discovered in the constellation Cygnus, and that binary suns are actually more common than singeltons like our sun, (which would actually be predicted by the electrical theory of star formation) So it’s no surprise that Gallifrey is also in a binary star system in the constellation of Kasterborous (both fictional btw).

In this episode I wanted to let Terry test another one of the Doctor’s theories and move out of his role as bystander. The Brobrean dome and the doctor’s idea is based on this video by David La Point called the Primer Fields “You will be amazed as a magnetic model of the dome at CERN is used to create a 100 mm diameter plasma Sun with a 300 mm diameter equatorial disc of plasma around it! All the plasma videos are actual footage with no enhancement or manipulation other than speed. In other words, this is real thing. Hard to believe, but it is all true.”
wooo oooh – the electric universe finished our first season! Thanks to Wal Thornhill www.holoscience.com for being my MUSE, Adam, Michael master of dialogue appropriate to those under 21, the Delorain writers, and of course the actors! Virtual flowers to the folk at city park radio for making it all happen on air. Thanks to Trevor, and the generous people of the internet world who have made the foleys sound effects and the music for making it really sing.
