Doctor Who Magazine 489

dwm489.jpg

The Sixth Doctor never had a proper regeneration story on television – so now Colin Baker has returned to record The Last Adventure for audio production company Big Finish…

 

“Big Finish came to me, and said, ‘If we write you a really good story, and if we released your seven cats which we’ve kidnapped, which are suspended above this flame getting lower and lower, will you perhaps do this story?'” Colin jokes, “and I reluctantly agreed, and my cats are safe!”

 

“I did require a little persuasion,” he admits, more candidly. So what changed his mind? “Oh, the idea of a release. A release from the tension of saying ‘no’ repeatedly. And… it’s Big Finish! That’s what changed my mind.”

There are dark skies on Krelos… and something gigantic is descending.

 

Meanwhile, the Doctor and Leela set off for some fishing in the mountain pools of Krelos.

And there’s a familiar piece of material snagged on the console.

 

Far up the mountain, an aged explorer is in trouble. Will the Doctor and Leela be able to save him and his planet? And what is it that K9 has discovered in the TARDIS?

The Drosten's Curse (Novel)

drostens curse novel.jpg

Isn’t life terrible? Isn’t it all going to end in tears? Won’t it be good to just give up and let something else run my mind, my life?

 

Something distinctly odd is going on in Arbroath. It could be to do with golfers being dragged down into the bunkers at the Fetch Brothers’ Golf Spa Hotel, never to be seen again. It might be related to the strange twin grandchildren of the equally strange Mrs Fetch – owner of the hotel and fascinated with octopuses. It could be the fact that people in the surrounding area suddenly know what others are thinking, without anyone saying a word.

 

Whatever it is, the Doctor is most at home when faced with the distinctly odd. With the help of Fetch Brothers' Junior Receptionist Bryony, he’ll get to the bottom of things. Just so long as he does so in time to save Bryony from quite literally losing her mind, and the entire world from destruction.

 

Because something huge, ancient and alien lies hidden beneath the ground – and it’s starting to wake up…

Myth Makers: David Fisher

coming soon.jpg

David Fisher wrote the scripts for four serials of Doctor Who. He first contributed The Stones of Blood and The Androids of Tara during that show's sixteenth season, and The Creature from the Pit for the seventeenth season. He was also working on a story called "A Gamble with Time," also for the seventeenth season, but was unable to finish the scripts due to his divorce proceedings from his first wife. That story was reworked and completed by then script editor Douglas Adams and then producer Graham Williams, and was recorded and broadcast as City of Death under the pseudonym of David Agnew. His final Doctor Who story was season eighteen's The Leisure Hive.

 

He novelised both The Leisure Hive and Creature from the Pit[3] for the Target book range of Doctor Who novelisations, and appeared extensively on the interview features accompanying the DVD release of the former story. He was also interviewed for a documentary accompanying the DVD release of City of Death.

 

Fisher's other work for television has included writing for the television series Dixon of Dock Green, Crown Court, Hammer House of Horror and Hammer House of Mystery and Suspense.

Myth Makers Virgin Publishing - Dr Who Books

Virgin Publishing.jpg

"In the 1990s Virgin Publishing was one of the few media companies keeping the DOCTOR WHO flame alight during, what has been termed, “the wilderness years.”

During this time, Doctor Who Books publisher, Peter Darvill-Evans, held regular gatherings of his writers to brainstorm new ideas.

In 1993, Reeltime Pictures was at The Conservatory bar in Central London to film one of these events, as the first step in making a Myth Makers about Virgin Publishing. They never completed the Myth Makers … until now.

Combined with a new interview with Peter, here are the highlights of that evening … an evening that had two special moments … an announcement and an anniversary…"

Why do the ghosts of fallen soldiers still fight long-forgotten battles against living men? What is the secret of the rural English town of Deepdene? Lethbridge-Stewart has good reason to doubt his own sanity, but is he suffering illness or injury, or is something more sinister going on?
