new-audio-adventures-for-the-twelfth-doctor

If you need something to keep your withdrawal symptoms at bay until Series 10 hits our screens, look no further than this range of original audio adventures featuring the 12th Doctor.

The first story, The Lost Angel, was released in January, while The Lost Planet landed earlier this month. Further instalments - The Lost Magic, The Lost Flame, Death Among the Stars and Rhythm of Destruction – will follow in May, July, September and November, respectively. Each story is read by a former Doctor Who cast member/guest star and features two new companions, Brandon and Alex.

The Lost Angel
Written by George Mann & Cavan Scott
Read by Kerry Shale – OUT NOW

All Alex Yow wants is to become a photo-journalist and break her first story. All Brandon Yow wants is for his sister to keep out of trouble and come home. But that’s not going to happen, because Alex has taken a picture of a statue. A statue that can move.

A statue that makes people disappear. A statue that is hunting them down.

In upstate New York, the Doctor is chasing weird energies that should not exist. Teaming up with Alex and Brandon, he discovers a powerful force enslaved to another’s will. Who controls the lonely assassin that prowls the streets? What secrets are the residence of Rickman hiding? And will Alex and Brandon survive the night of the Weeping Angels?

The Lost Planet
Written by George Mann
Read by Nicola Byrant – OUT NOW

The TARDIS is under attack. Alien plants have taken root in its corridors, strange flowering tendrils that threaten to rip the Doctor’s ship apart. New companions Brandon and Alex venture into the heart of the TARDIS to discover the source of the infestation.

Instead they find a secret door, and a forgotten world. The Doctor has unfinished business with the Arborites, living trees with long memories. Centuries ago he fought to prevent a galactic catastrophe – but now his past has come back to haunt him in ways he never thought possible.

Can the Time Lord rescue his young friends before they are destroyed by his past mistakes, or will Hirolth rise to leave utter devastation in its wake?

three-new-12th-doctor-bill-tie-in-novels-revealed

The covers and synopses for three brand new Doctor Who tie-in novels have surfaced online.

The books will be published on 20th April 2017, to coincide with the premiere of Series 10, and will complement the Doctor and Bill’s televisual adventures with three original stories, Plague City by Jonathan Morris, The Shining Man by Cavan Scott and Diamond Dogs by Mike Tucker.

Check out their plot details and artwork, featuring previously unseen images of our new TARDIS team, below.

Plague City by Jonathan Morris

“We should leave. We definitely should leave. But… chatty ghosts!”

The year is 1645, and Edinburgh is in the grip of the worst plague in its history. Nobody knows who will be the next to succumb – nobody except the Night Doctor, a masked figure that stalks the streets, seeking out those who will not live to see another day.
But death is not the end. The Doctor, Bill and Nardole discover that the living are being haunted by the recently departed – by ghosts that do not know they are dead. And there are other creatures lurking in the shadows, slithering, creeping creatures filled with an insatiable hunger.

The Doctor and his friends must face the terrifying secret of the Street of Sorrows – that something which has lain dormant for two hundred million years is due to destroy the entire city…

The Shining Man by Cavan Scott

“Being scared is the least of your worries.”

The Shining Men are everywhere. You spot them out of the corner of your eye. Abnormally tall, with long lank hair, blank faces and blazing eyes. If they catch you, they’ll drag you away to who knows where. No one is safe. They’re on every street corner. Waiting. Watching. Shining bright.

Of course it’s a hoax. It has to be, right? It started as a joke, a prank for Halloween. Then it went viral. Idiots dressing up as monsters. Giving folk a scare. Silly masks and fright wigs. No one gets hurt. Because bogeymen aren’t real.

Until people start going missing and lights burn in the darkness. Burning like eyes.

But help is on its way, in the form of a strange man called the Doctor and his friend, Bill. The Doctor will keep us safe. The Doctor will stop the monsters. Unless the monsters stop the Doctor first…

Diamond Dogs by Mike Tucker

“Here on Saturn, it literally rains diamonds.”

For over fifteen years the crew of Kollo-Zarnista Mining Facility 27 has been extracting diamonds from deep within the atmosphere of Saturn, diamonds that help to fund the ever-expanding Human Empire. But when a mining operation goes wrong, a rescue mission must be launched to save a worker lost overboard, a worker who claims that he has seen something amongst the swirling clouds. Something that can’t possibly exist.

When the Doctor and Bill arrive, they immediately find themselves caught between hostile miners, suspicious security guards and corrupt company officials as they face accusations of sabotage and diamond theft.

And below them, in the crushing atmosphere of the gas giant, something is starting to rise.

remembering-sir-john-hurt-in-dwm-510

A brand new edition of Doctor Who Magazine is released next week and it’s been revealed as a special tribute issue in honour of Sir John Hurt, who sadly passed away in January.

The veteran actor will be fondly remembered for his diverse career, spanning over five decades, and Doctor Who fans will always hold a special place in their hearts for him as the War Doctor. Introduced in the Series 7 finale, his incarnation starred in the 50th anniversary special, The Day of the Doctor, and he later reprised the role for an original range of Big Finish audio adventures.

The likes of David Tennant, Steven Moffat and Louise Jameson pay tribute to him inside the issue, which is out on Thursday 9th March, priced at £5.99. Check out the cover below…

familiar-faces-return-in-the-ninth-doctor-chronicles

Big Finish has announced that they’ll be releasing a new boxset of adventures called The Ninth Doctor Chronicles later this year.

Narrated by Nicholas Briggs, the collection will include four new original stories set during the Ninth Doctor era, with Camille Coduri and Bruno Langley both reprising their roles as Jackie Tyler and Adam Mitchell. Camille portrayed Rose’s mother Jackie, while Bruno’s character – regarded as the companion who wasn’t – had his TARDIS tenure cut short when he broke the rules of being a time traveller.

The Ninth Doctor Chronicles are released in May and can be pre-ordered, both digitally and on CD, now. The new range will continue in 2018 with the Tenth and Eleventh Doctors.
