Eleven tales will be released each month, one for each Doctor (starting with the first, William Hartnell) and each will be written by a well-known children’s author!

The first big name will be revealed on the official Doctor Who Facebook page on Monday 7th January, with the first story available from Wednesday 23rd January.

In addition, a promo video of each author will be released on YouTube, with the first available from Friday, 11th January.

Best of all, a paperback compendium of the stories will be published by Puffin in November.

Yet another great treat for Doctor Who fans in the show’s 50th anniversary year!
