The Forgotten Army

The Forgotten Army is the third in a trio of new Doctor Who books released this Spring starring the Eleventh Doctor and Amy Pond.

Doctor Who: The Forgotten ArmyWritten by Brian Minchin, this book joins Apollo 23 and Night of the Humans as well as the first set of books starring the new incarnation of the Doctor, and his latest companion.

‘Let me tell you a story. Long ago, in the frozen Arctic wastes, an alien army
landed. Only now, 10,000 years later, it isn’t a story. And the army is ready to attack.’

New York – one of the greatest cities on 21st century Earth… But what’s going on in the Museum? And is that really a Woolly Mammoth rampaging down Broadway? An ordinary day becomes a time of terror, as the Doctor and Amy meet a new and deadly enemy. The vicious Army of the Vykoid are armed to the teeth and determined to enslave the human race. Even though they’re only seven centimetres high.

With the Vykoid army swarming across Manhattan and sealing it from the world with a powerful alien force field, Amy has just 24 hours to find the Doctor and save the city. If she doesn’t, the people of Manhattan will be taken to work in the doomed asteroid mines of the Vykoid home planet. But as time starts to run out, who can she trust? And how far will she have to go to free New York from the Forgotten Army?

Brian Minchin is a script editor for Doctor Who. He has written short stories and comic strips for Torchwood Magazine, as well as a Torchwood audiobook, The Sin Eaters, narrated by Gareth David-Lloyd.

Released oni April 22nd, The Forgotten Army is available now to preorder from Amazon for just £4.89.
