Adventures With The Wife In Space: Living With Doctor Who   Leave a comment

Neil loves Sue. He also loves Doctor Who. But can he bring his two great loves together?

In January 2011, Neil Perryman set out on an insane quest to make his wife Sue watch every episode of the classic series of Doctor Who from the very beginning. Even the ones that didn’t exist any more. And so, over the next two and half years, Sue gamely watched them all. The result was a wildly successful and hilariously revealing blog called Adventures with the Wife in Space.

But the adventure continues. Here Neil tells the all too true story of life as a Doctor Who fan. Funny, honest and surprisingly brave, he also captures perfectly the joys – and fears – of sharing the thing you love with the people you love. Adventures With the Wife in Space is, at its heart, the story of Doctor Who, and its fans, seen through the eyes of two people – one who knows almost nothing about the programme and another who knows way too much.

Tales Of Trenzalore: The Eleventh Doctor’s Last Stand   Leave a comment

As it had been foretold, the armies of the Universe gathered at Trenzalore. Only one thing stood between the planet and destruction – the Doctor. For nine hundred years, he defended the planet, and the tiny town of Christmas, against the forces that would destroy it.

Some of what happened during those terrible years is well documented. But most of it has remained shrouded in mystery and darkness. Until now.

This is a glimpse of just some of the terrors the people faced, the monstrous threats the Doctor defeated. These are the tales of the monsters who found themselves afraid – and of the one man who was not.

(Tales of Trenzalore collects four of the Doctor’s adventures from different periods during the Siege of Trenzalore and the ensuing battle:

  • Let it Snow – by Justin Richards
  • An Apple a Day – by George Mann
  • Strangers in the Outland – by Paul Finch
  • The Dreaming – by Mark Morris)

We reveal the author of the new Doctor Who adventure!   Leave a comment

Newflash: A 12th Doctor needs a 12th adventure by a 12th author – and Holly Black has got the job!

There’s been a lot of speculation on who is writing the 12th story in Puffin’s series of Doctor Who adventures – to celebrate the arrival of Peter Capaldi as the newly regenerated Doctor.

Twitter was briefly alight a couple of weeks ago with the incorrect news that it was Frank Cottrell Boyce and before that some diehard fans were convinced JK Rowling had the job!

But now the Guardian children’s books site can reveal the truth: it’s bestselling American sci fi and fantasy writer author Holly Black, who rose to literary stardom with The Spiderwick Chronicles.

“It’s a huge honour to get to write a story in such an amazing science fiction universe, one which makes for an ultimate writer’s playground with it’s flexibility across time and space,” said Holly. “I am a big fan of the series and of the Doctor himself, our alien hero who reminds us over and over of our humanity and carries a screwdriver instead of a gun.”

Now Holly Black who joins the distinguished list of authors involved in this exciting project: Eoin Colfer, Michael Stott, Marcus Sedgwick, Philip Reeve, Patrick Ness, Richelle Mead, Malorie Blackman, Alex Scarrow, Charlie Higson and Neil Gaiman.

Holly’s story is called Lights Out and will be available as an eBook and will be included in a paperback anthology of Doctor Who: 12 Doctors, 12 Stories on 23 October 2014, originally published (minus Holly’s story of course) as 11 Doctors, 11 Stories.
