No one can escape the burning…
No, it isn’t an ad for Gaviscon but the paperback release of Dark Horizons, an original Eleventh Doctor novel written by British Chick-lit author and Doctor Who super-fan, Jenny Colgan.
Other than being a bit bendier, the paperback edition also boasts confidently that it has a striking new cover which replaces the tweed clad Doctor and his Viking pal with the long green coat and an even longer boat (well, an actual Longboat) which has sparked all sorts of intense debate online.
Hardback cover or Paperback cover? There can only be one winner!
… Increased literacy among children! *cough andthehardbackcoverisbetter cough*
On the hunt for the fabled Lewis Chess Set, the Doctor instead 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?
Dark Horizons, written by J.T Colgan, is available to pre-order now for release on the 4th July 2013 for £7.19 from Amazon.
