Lethbridge-Stewart: Quiz Book

LS_Quiz_Book.jpg ? On Order £8.99

Release Date 15 December 2017

Category: Lethbridge-Stewart Novels and Audios

Mark Jones, author of the recent Lethbridge-Stewart free story United in Blood, says: “When Candy Jar asked me to compile The Lethbridge-Stewart Quiz Book I couldn’t wait to get started. The Brigadier is a character that meant a great deal to me and it gave me the chance to watch the UNIT stories over again.”

 

Like the classic Doctor Who Quiz Books of the 1980s, The Lethbridge-Stewart Quiz Book features over 750 questions on the UNIT era of Doctor Who and beyond. For instance:

 

• In the television story The Time Monster what was TOMTIT?

• Who is attempting to penetrate the Earth’s crust in Inferno?

• What relation is James Lethbridge-Stewart to the Brigadier?

• What does UNIT stand for?

 

Shaun Russell, head of publishing at Candy Jar, is excited about the book. “I remember a trip to Lyme Regis as a boy where I found a copy of the first Doctor Who Quiz Book. For some reason my local WHSmith did not have this book, which made the discovery even more exciting. I don’t think my sister appreciated it though. Asking me questions on the beach about Doctor Who was not her idea of fun.”

 

Mark is revisiting this classic formula, with twelve separate sections dedicated to the adventures of Brigadier Lethbridge-Stewart. He says: “There’s something for everyone and it’s a book that will provide hours of entertainment and a challenge to the old grey matter. It’s a book for dipping into whenever you feel like challenging yourself or your friends – hopefully without too many arguments.”

Roger Delgado: I Am Usually Referred to as The Master

roger_delgado.jpg ? On Order £19.99

Release Date 18 December 2017

Category: Autobiography

Roger Delgado is instantly recognisable as the Master in Doctor Who but his most famous role was also one of his last. He died aged only 55 but his career was long and productive including roles in much loved television programs such as The Saint, The Avengers, Quatermass II and films including the Hammer horrors. His brilliant versatility made him an indispensable character actor, who was able to switch accent and nationality.

 

This biography brings to light Delgado’s life from his childhood and early work in banking, his repertory theatre, early television, film roles, and finally his fame as the Doctor’s nemesis, when colleagues found a master criminal was played by the kindest man they had ever met. It also shows a private life more complex than previously thought.

 

The biography commemorates the centenary of Delgado’s birth in 1918 and looks beyond commonly told anecdotes to tell the story of Delgado’s life and career based on painstaking archival research. It features never before seen photographs from the collection of Roger’s widow Kismet Delgado and all new interviews with both some of Delgado’s most famous co-stars as well as with rarely-interviewed co-stars and directors.

Eighth Doctor: Time War Series 1

time_war_1.jpg ? On Order £40.00

Release Date 18 December 2017

Category: Eighth Doctor Audio

The Eighth Doctor battles for survival in the Time War:

 

1. The Starship of Theseus by John Dorney

 

The Doctor and his companion, Sheena, land the TARDIS on the glamorous luxury space-liner Theseus just as it’s about to leave the Jupiter space-port. An opportunity for a holiday presents itself – and it’s one they’re very glad to take.

 

But when a disturbance catches their attention, they realise sinister events are taking place on board. Passengers are vanishing on every trip. And unless they’re careful they may be next.

 

Can the Doctor and Emma solve the mystery? Or is there something else they should be worrying about?

 

2. Echoes of War by Matt Fitton

 

Colliding with the full force of the Time War, the Doctor crash-lands on a jungle world with a ragtag band of refugees.

 

To stay alive, they must cross a landscape where time itself is corrupted. A forest which cycles through growth and decay, where sounds of battle are never far away, and where strange creatures lurk all around.

 

Luckily, the Doctor has friends: not only plucky scientist Bliss, but another, much more unlikely ally. Its name is ‘Dal’…

 

3. The Conscript by Matt Fitton

 

Cardinal Ollistra has a new tactic to persuade the Doctor to join his people’s fight. With his friends locked away, he has been conscripted alongside fellow Gallifreyans to train for the front lines of battle.

 

Commandant Harlan has a reputation – his camp’s regime is harsh. He believes the Time Lords must adapt to win this war, but the Doctor is not easily intimidated.

 

Can there be any place for dissent when the Time War looms so close?

 

4. One Life by John Dorney

 

As the full force of the Time War crashes down around the Doctor and his friends, a desperate battle for survival ensues.

 

But not everyone is playing the same game. Ollistra is after a weapon that could end the war in a stroke and she’ll sacrifice anyone or anything to take it back to Gallifrey. Even the Doctor.

 

Surrounded by Daleks, and on a tortured planet, only one man can save the day. But he doesn’t want to fight.

 

Cast: Paul McGann (The Doctor), Olivia Vinall (Sheena), Nimmy March (Rupa Maguire), David Ganly (Quarren Maguire), Sean Murray (Captain Darvor), Hywel Morgan (Koloth / Jefferson), Laurence Kennedy (Purser Lunney / Aymor / Chancellor), Rakhee Thakrar (Bliss), Karina Fernandez (Captain Tamasan), Jacqueline Pearce (Ollistra), Nick Brimble (Commander Harlan), Katy Sobey (Veeda), Okezie Morro (Norvid), and Nicholas Briggs (Dal / Dalek Commander / Dalek Drone / Daleks)

The world has ended. 'The Death’ pandemic crossed continents, sparing only a fraction of the global population.

 

The survivors are now trying to pick up the pieces and rebuild society - to create a new future.

 

But with no cities, no laws, no technology, everyone must start over. And the worst of human nature has survived along with the best...

 

Four new battles for survival, from the world of Terry Nation's cult-classic series.

 

7.1 Journey’s End by Roland Moore

Alone and resolute, a mother has spent the years since the Death searching for her son. She is closing in on her final lead. One last hope to find Peter.

 

But for Abby Grant, the worst possible thing might be to find what she is looking for…

 

7.2 Legacy by Simon Clark

Greg Preston is dead. But the work he did in forging his foundation, in bringing communities together, lives on.

 

When she and Ruth encounter those whose lives he touched, Jenny Richards is forced to remember how the man she loved abandoned her. But when she meets a common enemy, can she find the strength to make a stand?

 

7.3 Old Friends by Matt Fitton 

Ruth Anderson and Evelyn Piper unite on a mission of mercy. An old friend is in trouble and in the path of dangerous forces.

 

Jackie Burchell could reveal secrets that change lives. But first, she must find her own way back. When things are at their worst, it’s old friends who keep you going.

 

7.4 Reconnection by Christopher Hatherall

As Jenny continues her plan to restore electricity across the country, she meets someone she never thought she’d see again – but it’s a very different Abby Grant to the one who left the Grange.

 

Not everyone is in favour of Jenny’s project, and the women find danger in a remote power station. It may be too late for them to reconnect…

Category: Doctor Who Main Range 201 onwards

It’s L/Wren Mrs Constance Clarke’s birthday – and Flip is determined to make it an anniversary to remember.

 

The futuristic colony of Formicia, where the pampered populace pass their days in endless leisure, seems the perfect place for a ‘Wren Party’. But all is not as it seems. Looking down from the Middle, the skyscraping tower that ascends as far as the colony ceiling, Formicia’s overseers can see that the Doctor doesn’t fit in – and it’s not just his coat that makes him conspicuous...

 

“The End is the Beginning,” say the propaganda-like posters all over Formicia. Because to be part of this perfect society comes at a price. And the Doctor's already in arrears.

Doctor Who and the Krikkitmen (Audio)

krikkitmen_cd.jpg ? On Order £25.00

Release Date 18 January 2018

Category: Classic Audio Books

An unabridged reading of the brand new novel based on a storyline by Douglas Adams.

 

The Doctor promised Romana the end of the universe, so she’s less than impressed when what she gets is a cricket match. But then the award ceremony is interrupted by eleven figures in white uniforms and peaked skull helmets, wielding bat-shaped weapons that fire lethal bolts of light into the screaming crowd. The Krikkitmen are back.

 

Millions of years ago, the people of Krikkit learned they were not alone in the universe, and promptly launched a xenophobic crusade to wipe out all other life-forms. After a long and bloody conflict, the Time Lords imprisoned Krikkit within an envelope of Slow Time, a prison that could only be opened with the Wicket Gate key, a device that resembles – to human eyes, at least – an oversized set of cricket stumps…

 

From Earth to Gallifrey, from Bethselamin to Devalin, from Krikkit to Mareeve II to the far edge of infinity, the Doctor and Romana are tugged into a pan-galactic conga with fate as they rush to stop the Krikkitmen gaining all five pieces of the key. If they fail, the entire cosmos faces a fiery retribution that will leave nothing but ashes…

 

Duration: 8 hours approx.
