Engines of War

engines of war.jpg

"The death of billions is as nothing to us Doctor, if it helps defeat the Daleks."

 

The Great Time War has raged for centuries, ravaging the universe. Scores of human colony planets are now overrun by Dalek occupation forces. A weary, angry Doctor leads a flotilla of Battle TARDISes against the Dalek stronghold but in the midst of the carnage, the Doctor's TARDIS crashes to a planet below: Moldox.

 

As the Doctor is trapped in an apocalyptic landscape, Dalek patrols roam amongst the wreckage, rounding up the remaining civilians. But why haven't the Daleks simply killed the humans?

 

Searching for answers the Doctor meets 'Cinder', a young Dalek hunter. Their struggles to discover the Dalek plan take them from the ruins of Moldox to the halls of Gallifrey, and set in motion a chain of events that will change everything. And everyone.

 

An epic novel of the Great Time War featuring the War Doctor as played by John Hurt. Hardcover

moonstallion.jpg

When the Purwells set out to explore the land of the real King Arthur, they find themselves caught up in a hunt for the Moon Stallion, a beautiful but dangerous beast without mortal master. Mortenhurze, Purwell's patron, wants revenge. Todman, a horse warlock, has more sinister intentions. Both men seek to capture the mysterious horse, so that its magic powers will become theirs to command.

 

But they are no match for the dark forces of myth and magic which still exist among the Berkshire hills. Only Diana, who is blind, is allowed a glimpse of the truth. With Merlin's help, she learns that the Moon Stallion is beyond the reach of ambitious men. It is part of a legend which unites past, present and future...

Still Getting Away With It. Autobiography of Nicholas Courtney

stillgetting

Limited copies back in stock

 

Still Getting Away With It, the official autobiography of Nicholas Courtney, is co-written with Michael McManus ("Towards the Sound of Gunfire"). "I think the time has now come for me to write a full and frank account of my life, not least with regard to my unbroken, forty-year association with Doctor Who," says Courtney, beloved by fans worldwide for his longtime portrayal of Brigadier Lethbridge-Stewart. "Some people may be surprised by how candid and forthright I am going to be about certain people and events, but I think I owe it to myself and also to others to be reasonably bold as well as old! This will be very much a new book. The more familiar stories have been completely re-edited or rewritten and there is a mass of entirely new material. I am delighted Michael is co-writing this new book with me. He is both a good friend and a very experienced and talented writer." Says McManus, "As Nick's friend and as someone who has always enjoyed Doctor Who, I regard the opportunity to participate in this project as a huge privilege. I can only hope we manage to do justice to the depths of the man - as actor on stage and screen, long-time Equity activist and all-round good guy. My ambition is simple. Anyone reading this book must feel they have really got to know Nick intimately."

 

The book's introduction was written by Tom Baker

An Auton Guide to the Stories Behind the Stories of the Seventh Doctor

 

Doctor Who is now in its fifty-first year and enjoying its 12th 13th 14th latest of many actors to take on the lead role. Every era is different, each actor brings their own style to the role, each producer and script editor makes their mark and probably Sylvester McCoy’s era is one of the most divisive among fandom.

 

It’s a dynamic three years blowing cobwebs off the memory of recent cancellation. The Doctor and the series develop over forty-seven episodes until finally, sadly, just as things are on the up, the show is cancelled again.

 

The Auton guide to the stories behind the Seventh Doctor’s era answers all the questions fans haven’t been asking :

Cleaning Robots: What can you actually clean with a drill and a saw blade? We tried.

Who built the Rani’s lair? How long did it take?

Harry’s 70+ - how old is his wife if she’s having twins in a few weeks?

Why is the Psychic Circus so-called?

Why do Rezzies eat Kangs when they’ve got a ready supply of teacakes, crumpets, muffin, basil and fresh cream?

Now that we have a ‘Special Weapons’ Dalek, should we re-label all the other Daleks?

And how did Delta fit into Mel’s dress?

 

We worry about these things so you don’t have to. It’s been a long time since Auton visited Doctor Who. Aided by the illustrations of Andy X Cable it’s time to get it out of our system.

 

Build high for happiness.

189: Revenge of the Swarm

revenge of the swarm.jpg

The Doctor thought he had defeated the microscopic Nucleus of the Swarm in his fourth incarnation. He was wrong. It survived within the TARDIS, and now it has brought it back to Titan Base, back to the point of its own creation. It has a plan that spans centuries, a plan which will result in the Nucleus becoming more powerful – and larger – than ever before.

To defeat it, the Doctor, Ace and Hex must confront the Nucleus within its new domain - the computer-world of the Hypernet, the information network crucial to the survival of the human empire. But if the Doctor is to save the day, he has to risk everything and everyone he holds dear...
