Therefore, its known narrative elements are not a part of the Doctor Who universe as we, on this Wiki, choose to define it. It may have been the basis for a similar story in another medium, however — and that story may indeed be valid.
The I Job was an audio story written by Jonathan Blum for the fourth series of BBV Productions' Audio Adventures in Time & Space line in the early 2000s. It featured the I from Blum's novel Seeing I, which had previously appeared in Lance Parkin's BBV audio I Scream. The I Job, which would have constituted a second episode in The I series, was never produced by BBV, rejected due to its length; however, live performances of the script were done at the Gallifrey One and Conflux conventions in 2002.
A decade later, Jon Blum revised the script, and it subsequently entered production by Mezzacotta Productions (led by David Morgan-Mar and the Comic Irregulars) in association with 2RRR Radio in Sydney. Actors were cast, and it was recorded in 2RRR Studios over two days in January 2013. Jonathan Blum commission Alex Ries for artwork of the I.
The resultant 90-minute audio story was to be released first as an online podcast in 9 ten-minute webisodes, then as three half-hour episodes aired on 2RRR Radio in mid 2013. However, despite post-production help from Alistair Lock, Neil Marsh, and several others, the need for re-recording and difficulties with actor availability necessitated the release's delay until early 2014; during this process, it was split into five twenty-minute episodes to allow for better recaps and cliffhangers. These delays were ultimately exacerbated by Jon Blum's own business and 2RRR's change in management. As of 2022[update], the project has not been released.
During the post-production stage, performances of The I Job episode one were held at three Australian conventions in 2013: Conflux, Whovention, and Lords of Time. Jon Blum and his wife Kate Orman presented a nearly-final mix of The I Job episode one at the Chicago TARDIS convention in December 2013, where they also gave a sneak-peek at a "motion comic" version of the story.
