This section needs a news thread!

Anyways, I am adding this here as it is the most relevent place I guess. Gareth Roberts is going to rewrite Shada as a novel for release next March Smiley

There seems to be a spurt of news coming out about the book and magazine world of Doctor Who. This thread has been merged from another discussion about book releases and will have all the latest headlines and little titbits that perhaps don't warrant a thread of their own but are of interest nonetheless Smiley

The DW BBC Books Twitter feed have just announced that:

... legendary sci-fi author Alastair Reynolds will be writing a Third Doctor novel for us for 2013.

Reynolds himself has also written about it on his blog:

And I'm now pleased to announce that in 2013, in the fiftieth anniversary year of Doctor Who, BBC Books will be publishing HARVEST OF TIME, an original science fiction novel featuring the Third Doctor, his companion Jo Grant, and arch-enemy The Master.

He goes on to discuss the show & his reasons for choosing the Third Doctor. You can read it HERE

Might be worth bookmarking that blog as well as he says he will be revealing more over the coming year.

If it's already written, how can they sell writing and advertising space in it? It would mean that essentially each time it's republished it's a new volume, which would sort of take away the appeal of buying a first edition.

Who is Michael E. Briant?: A Memoir by the Doctor Who Director

Michael E. Briant directed numerous episodes of classic TV series throughout the 1970s such as Blake’s 7, Secret Army, Warship and most famously Doctor Who.

Many of his Doctor Who stories (The Sea Devils, The Green Death and Robots of Death) are regarded as all-time greats by fans of the series.

Briant reminisces about his career, including his early years on Doctor Who in the Sixties, while he was working his way up in the TV profession, and William Hartnell and Patrick Troughton were at the TARDIS controls.

Ice Warriors come to mind immediately, but they only just released a new Ice Warriors book so it's probably not that.

I hate to sound bitter, but this sounds like a total cash in. I don't think I've ever even heard of him and he must have directed more besides Doctor Who, so why use the show to sell more books?

I was sure I'd put this here. Don't think it's worth a new thread but here is the info.


Many Doctor Who fans love to collect things whether it’s old episodes, books, scripts, replica costumes or used underwear; they’ll collect it to the very end.

Andy X. Cable used to have a website which drew well over two million hits in just a week and his love for Doctor Who couldn’t have been stronger, but when his collection was cruelly taken away he bounced back and started a new collection.

Armed only with his little black book and a small blue pen he’d got from Argos he began listing and cataloguing Doctor Who related road signs and now his collection, which he’s spent very nearly seven months working on, is presented here in what he hopes will be the first of several volumes.

His passion will become your passion in this genuine and thrilling fanatical page-turner.

I don't know whether this has been put anywhere else (and apologies for the duplication if it has been) but while buying my 50th anniversary calendar I came across the cover of the 2013 Doctor Who annual...


It is available on pre-order http://www.amazon.co.uk/Doctor-Who-Official-Annual-2013/dp/1405908440/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1341480633&sr=8-1
