The Black Archive 10: The Scream of the Shalka

black archive scream of the shalka.jpg ? In Stock £6.99

Category: Black Archive, The

The Black Archive – a series of book-length looks at single Doctor Who stories from 1963 to the present day.

 

Intended as the first in a series of online animated dramas, Scream of the Shalka (2003) was the first attempt to redefine Doctor Who for the 21st century. Produced by BBCi and written by Doctor Who novelist (and later scriptwriter on the revived series) Paul Cornell, it maintains a traditional feel while rethinking the roles of Doctor, companion and villain.

 

Richard E Grant’s Doctor is characterised as aristocratic and aloof, drawing on models from the past such as Jon Pertwee’s third Doctor, Sherlock Holmes and even Dracula. The story, in which the Doctor must accept military assistance to foil an alien invasion beginning in an isolated English village, adheres to a venerable formula. Nevertheless, Scream of the Shalka anticipates its successor in perceptive ways – featuring a Doctor who is ‘an emotional island’ numbed by recent trauma, a companion who must choose between a predictable life with her boyfriend and the joys and dangers of travel with the Doctor, and a Master humiliated by the Doctor’s duty of care.

 

A victim of timing as much as of its own flaws, Scream of the Shalka remains a fascinating glimpse into an alternative vision for Doctor Who.

Downtime - The Lost Years of Doctor Who (Paperback)

downtime lost years.png ? In Stock £22.99

Category: Doctor Who Reference Books

During the interregnum between the Seventh Doctor’s final adventures in 1989 and the relaunch of the series in 2005, BBC One broadcast only three new Doctor Who stories – a TV movie and two comic versions raising money for charity. Elsewhere, books and comic strips (and eventually licensed audios) kept the flame alive, but it seemed the BBC had little interest in reinvigorating the franchise on television.

 

Meanwhile, seemingly almost forgotten, some of the Doctor’s friends, enemies and legally dubious clones continued their adventures in the direct to video market and their own spin off audio adventures, written by and starring many of the cast/crew who had worked on the original series, and several who would work on the relaunched version.

 

Downtime – The Lost Worlds of Doctor Who combines archive interviews and articles along with over forty new interviews conducted by the author in order to tell the story of these dramas and their impact and influence, and to celebrate the dedication and ingenuity of fandom.

 

Downtime is written by Dylan Rees who has previously contributed articles to Celestial Toyroom, You and Who Else and “Breakin’ Point” Magazine. Outside of writing he is a freelance Production Manager and Producer within the film and TV industry.

Iris Wildthyme: A Clockwork Iris

a clockwork iris.png ? In Stock £18.99

Category: Iris Wildthyme Books

The multiverse can be viewed – not terribly accurately, it’s true – as a mirror smashed into an infinite number of fragments.

 

No surprise then that, at one moment in time and in one such fragment, there resided that renowned transtemporal aviatrix, Ms Iris Wildthyme, along with her friend and drinking companion, Clockwork Panda. In a universe filled with brass and copper, where the skies are full of zeppelins, and where thick goggles are, for some reason, very much in fashion, they live their lives in a bright red airship, the number 22 to Putney Aerodrome.

 

These are their adventures…

Time's Mosaic: Fifth Doctor

times mosaic.jpg ? In Stock £14.99

Category: Doctor Who Reference Books

Imagine a Story fifty years in the telling.

 

That’s a long time to maintain consistency. Storylines clash, continuity dies and contradictions flourish as one decade bleeds into the next, and one editor replaces another, each with their own idea of how the Story should be told. Add to that a veritable flood of formats – big screen, television, novels, audios, comics, short stories, cartoons – and what seemed at first to be merely difficult rapidly becomes all but unmanageable.

 

Now imagine if one man were to attempt to consider it all. One man reading the short stories and the novels, watching the movies and the box sets, listening to radio plays and BBC compact discs…taking it all in so that you don’t have to…

 

Join Finn Clark on an epic journey through the Whoniverse, as he reviews every single Doctor Who story in every single format (except Big Finish – we decided that a thousand page book was just too much!). From ‘An Unearthly Child’ and TV Comic throwaways to Capaldi and IDW, with sidesteps into influences and spin-offs, he’ll tell you, the reader, what he thinks of it all, good and bad…

 

Examining the Peter Davison era, plus the Sarah Jane Adventures – and a quick check on the Egyptian Pharaoh Erimem – this is the ultimate review guide to Doctor Who!

Faction Paradox: Weapons Grade Snake Oil

weapons grade snake oil.jpg ? In Stock £19.99

Category: Faction Paradox Books

“There she goes. Running flat out. Little Sojourner. Not really dressed for a sprint. Moves pretty fast for a woman of her age though. She’s carrying something. Hard to see from this far away.

Maybe, if we moved a little closer.

Sojourner has a gun in each hand. She swings them, awkwardly as she dashes across the gravel. Barefoot. Her evening dress looks a mess. That backpack looks heavy. There’s a sheen to her dark skin. But, look; it isn’t sweat. It’s blood.

That isn’t a pattern on her dress either. That’s blood too. Her braids are spraying a trail of red in their wake. That’s a lot of blood.

It’s not her blood.”

It’s raining blood on the village of Happenstance.

Retired TV star TOM BAKER is in the garden making friends with cabbages (especially ERIC) and Mrs Frimbly is up to curious, malinky deeds of her own. Before the festival is over there’ll be RITUAL SACRIFICE, A NASTY HOMUNCULUS and an ALMIGHTY RUCKUS in the front parlour.

But that’s not all.

TOM has had a word with the FERRYMAN and it’s all aboard the ferryboat as it glides through the KINCHING MORTS OF MIDNIGHT…

We’re all going to HELL.

And it looks a lot like MIDDLESBROUGH.
