A Life in the Day of a Doctor Who Production was one of the most ambitious parodical stories in Tim Quinn and Dicky Howett's The Doctor Who Fun Book: instead of taking place in the Doctor Who universe, it purported to offer a glimpse into the production of the (wholly fictional) Doctor Who Fortieth Anniversary Special of November 2003, culminating in an attached poster purported to be be the souvenir photograph taken of the entire Doctor Who cast during this future filming.

Of course, what Quinn and Howett did not know was that Doctor Who would be cancelled in 1989, meaning 2003 in the real world did not see the release of a conventional multi-Doctor 40th anniversary special on television, with the dubious exception of the fourth-wall breaking sketch Children in Need 2003. The big-budget extravaganza seen in the comic (which even featured "all six Doctors and all of the companions", despite a significant of those cast members already having died by 1987, not the least of whom William Hartnell) thus remained a figment of the writers' imagination.
