Veteran Doctor Who books author Justin Richards is the first name on the list of contributors to the print adventures of the Eleventh Doctor and Amy Pond, with Apollo 23, set for release on 22 April 2010.
‘For a few moments this afternoon, it rained on the moon…’
An astronaut in full spacesuit appears out of thin air in a busy shopping centre. Maybe itâ€™s a publicity stunt. A photo shows a well-dressed woman in a red coat lying dead at the edge of a crater on the dark side of the moon â€“ beside her beloved dog â€˜Poochieâ€™.
Maybe itâ€™s a hoax. But as the Doctor and Amy find out, these are just minor events in a sinister plan to take over every human being on earth. The plot centres on a secret military base on the moon â€“ thatâ€™s where Amy and the TARDIS are.
The Doctor is back on Earth, and without the TARDIS thereâ€™s no way he can get to the moon to save Amy and defeat the aliens. Or is there? The Doctor discovers one last great secret that could save humanity: Apollo 23.
Justin Richards is a well known author of childrenâ€™s fiction, including the novels The Parliament of
