Originally coming across Sherman’s Gallifreyan and being inspired by a completely fan-made system, I set out to make my own original phonetic system based off of the imagery on the Doctor’s cot in 6.7 A Good Man Goes To War. Doctor’s Cot Gallifreyan is based off of Hebrew, in that there are no vowel characters, only consonants which the vowels can attach to. This expanded version of the system includes all the consonants and vowels of the International Phonetic Alphabet (IPA) so that it can be used by people of all languages, not just English. The goal is to allow speakers of all languages and dialects, to write and share in a common visual language, keeping their original pronunciation intact.
