In late 2015 and early 2016, Donbavand wrote several stories for the Doctor Who Adventures magazine.
In March 2016, Donbavand was diagnosed with cancer, forcing him to stop writing and be hospitalised.  In July, Obverse Books published a charity collection of Doctor Who-themed short stories called "A Target for Tommy" to raise money for Donbavand. Many notable Doctor Who writers contributed to the collection, including Paul Magrs, Stephen Cole, Paul Cornell, and Daniel Blythe.
