Our first has been announced Smiley


A Big Hand For The Doctor by Eion Colfer

London. 1900. The First Doctor is missing his hand and his granddaughter, Susan. Faced with the search for Susan, a strange beam of soporific light, and a host of marauding Soul Pirates, the Doctor is promised a dangerous journey into a land he may never forget…

The first instalment in a sensational series of stories celebrating the 50th anniversary of Doctor Who is written by Eoin Colfer, best-selling author of Artemis Fowl.

The author commented: “As a boy I had been reading the Doctor Who books for years before I ever saw a single episode and I found that the on-screen version of the First Doctor was almost identical to the version in my imagination.”

I will be getting these. I've never read Artemis Fowl but I have heard so much about it. There are also hundreds of rumours that they got JK Rowling to write for Ten. I think that is a pairing a lot of fans will dig.

Yes, I imagine this would be brilliant. It's a great name to have attached to the series.

Book 2 has been announced.


The Nameless City

The second instalment in a sensational series of stories celebrating the 50th anniversary of Doctor Who is to be written by New York Times best-selling author Michael Scott. The Nameless City, featuring the Second Doctor and Jamie, follows Artemis Fowl author Eoin Colfer launching the series with A Big Hand For The Doctor in January.

When Jamie McCrimmon brings the Doctor a mysterious book, little does he realise the danger contained within its pages. The book transports the TARDIS to a terrifying glass city on a distant world, where the Archons are intent on getting revenge on the Time Lord for an ancient grudge.

The short ebook will be available from February 23.

I've never heard of him either. Some of his titles sound familiar though and this one sounds great.

I was toying with the idea of getting these but I might just wait for the anthology - probably be slightly cheaper in the long run.

Book 8


TimeRiders author Alex Scarrow has penned the eighth adventure in the exclusive series of short Doctor Who ebooks.

Spore, featuring Paul McGann’s Eighth Doctor is set in a small town in the Nevada desert:

An alien pathogen has reduced the entire population to a seething mass of black slime. When the Eighth Doctor arrives, he realises this latest threat to humanity is horrifyingly familiar – it is a virus which almost annihilated his entire race, the Time Lords…

Alex Scarrow commented: “I am squeeing like an over-sugared toddler at the thought of being part of this project. Doctor Who is an export this country can be proud of. We OWN time travel. My small part in this project was to breathe life back into the least known, Eighth Doctor, played by Paul McGann. I chose him because I felt I had the most room to manoeuvre, to explore a lesser known Doctor and add flesh to his character. In my story entitled Spore, we’re getting a particularly grisly tale of an intelligent virus that liquifies and absorbs any creature it infects. All in all… quite gross – liquified people an’ all.”

Now and then, every once in a very long while, every day in a million days, when the wind stands fair and The Doctor comes to call, everybody lives.

I've read the first two of these and they're actually really good. I will get through all of them at some point.
