Pulled this:
  • Dirk Gently's Holistic Detective Agency started out as a Doctor Who script, but was fitted with a cast of Expy characters (who were changed enough that they were compelling in their own right) and the plot was altered very drastically. Similarly, Life, the Universe and Everything started out as a rejected script for a Doctor Who movie, and was again drastically rewritten (interestingly enough, removing the "Doctor" figure and his actions almost entirely without breaking the plot).

All true (except maybe that the Doctor was removed almost entirely from LTUAE; Adams said Slartybartfast and Trillian ended up with his role) but never actually fanfic; it was all official Doctor Who.
