It might not be due in bookshops until July 5th, but we’ve just received our preview copy of Jenny Colgan’s Doctor Who book, Dark Horizons!
Writing as J.T. Colgan, the Chick Lit favourite brings a new adventure for the Eleventh Doctor…
“Now, you may or may not have noticed, but we appear to be on fire…”
On a windswept Northern shore, at the very tip of what will one day become Scotland, the islanders believe the worst they have to fear is a Viking attack. Then the burning comes. They cannot run from it. Water will not stop it. It consumes everything in its path – yet the burned still speak.
The Doctor is just looking for a game on the famous Lewis chess set. Instead he encounters a people under attack from a power they cannot possibly understand. They have no weapons, no strategy and no protection against a fire sent to engulf them all.
Add in some marauding Vikings with very bad timing, a kidnapped princess with a secret of her own and a TARDIS that seems to have developed an inexplicable fear of water, and they all have a battle on their hands. The islanders must take on a ruthless alien force in a world without technology; without communications; without tea that isn’t made out of bark. Still at least they have the Doctor on their side… Don’t they?
A thrilling new adventure starring the Doctor, as played by Matt Smith.
While this £12.99 hardback isn’t released until 5 July, you can get in early and order Dark Horizons from Amazon today for just £7.89. The book is also available in Kindle and audiobook formats.
With the preview copy in our possession, expect a review in the next week or so…
