The short story sees the Doctor and Jamie McCrimmon pulled through the pages of a mysterious evil book, transporting them to a terrifying glass city on a distant world where the Archons are intent on getting revenge on the Time Lord for an ancient grudge.

Sharing his love for the Second Doctor, Scott commented:

Everyone has their ‘own’ Doctor – usually the one they first started watching. Patrick Troughton, the Second Doctor, was mine and so writing this story was an opportunity to revisit a really important part of my childhood. There are elements of Patrick Troughton in every Doctor who followed – that’s how influential and important he is.

A new story in the series will be released as an e-book on the 23rd of every month, each costing £1.99 – the first story, A Big Hand for the Doctor, written by Artemis Fowl creator Eoin Colfer saw the First Doctor tackling space pirates in an ode to J.M Barrie’s immortal children’s novel Peter Pan.

The Nameless City will be available from February 23rd – to read an extract from the short story head over to The Guardian. You can also pre-order for just £1.99 for Kindle devices.

Everyone has a favourite Doctor and mine - just for his honesty, his fairness and his ability to not notice the Master's awful, awful disguises/anagrams (Sir Gilles Estram!?!) - has to be the Fifth Doctor, Peter Davison. The stories didn’t serve him as well as his acting served those stories.
