Doctor Who and the Krikkitmen

krikkitmen.jpg ? On Order £16.99

Category: Original Doctor Who Novels

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…

“There is no other job in the world like this,” Jodie Whittaker tells the new issue of DWM. Jodie also discusses her regeneration scene and working with costume designer Ray Holman: “The very first meeting we had was all very secret and incognito. As we were talking I was completely distracted by the colour of the wallpaper behind us. I told Roy I absolutely loved that colour, and that’s the colour of the trousers.”

 

Also in this issue, Chris Chibnall looks forward to a new era: “What’s evident is Doctor Who’s extraordinary ability to embrace change while remaining exactly the same show that people love.”

The Black Archive 15: Full Circle

black_archive_full_circle.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.

 

‘Well, evolution goes in quantum leaps, but it doesn’t go that fast.’

 

1980 was a time of profound change for Doctor Who, with a new producer and script editor both

keen to overhaul the series at all levels. During the course of its 18th season the series would also undergo a complete change of its leading cast.

 

Positioned in the middle of this pivotal season, Full Circle (1980) exemplifies the new production team’s vision, one that rejected the fantasy overtones of previous years and put a more science-driven ethos at the heart of the series. It attempts to present the concept of evolution to a tea-time family audience in an entertaining way, dramatising it by depicting the inhabitants of a spaceship and a primordial swamp in conflict with each other.

 

But stranger elements lurk beneath the surface, forgotten and waiting to re-emerge. This book puts Full Circle under the microscope and discovers a mixed heritage of discredited science, pseudoscience and mysticism. It also considers the effect this story, the first to be written by someone who grew up as a fan of Doctor Who, had on the evolution of the series itself.

Lethbridge-Stewart Novella: Travers and Wells

travers_and_wells.jpg ? In Stock £12.99

Category: Lethbridge-Stewart Novels and Audios

“For a time I believed that mankind had been swept out of existence, and that I stood there with my friend, Edward Travers, the last men left alive.”

 

Edward Travers, pulled out of time by a mysterious force, finds himself on a hill with a young man called Herbert George Wells. Together the men travel across England, intent on discovering where they are; a world distinctly different from the one they know. And yet, for Edward Travers, it is one that seems vaguely familiar...

 

For strange, meteor-like objects have landed in the heart of England, and the inhabitants of Earth have found themselves victims of a terrible attack. A ruthless race of Martians, armed with heat rays and poisonous smoke, is intent on destroying everything that stands in its way.

 

Only things have not turned out the way Travers' expected, for this is not the war of the worlds HG Wells wrote about, but something much worse.

Lethbridge-Stewart: Quiz Book

LS_Quiz_Book.jpg ? In Stock £8.99

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.”

Eighth Doctor: Time War Series 1

time_war_1.jpg ? In Stock £40.00

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_middle.jpg ? In Stock £14.99

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.

 

Cast: Colin Baker (The Doctor), Lisa Greenwood (Flip Jackson), Miranda Raison (Mrs Constance Clarke)
