Bestselling fantasy author and Vampire Academy creator Richelle Mead has been announced as the author of Something Borrowed, the sixth eBook in the exclusive Doctor Who ebook short fiction series from Puffin to be released on the 2nd of every month leading up to the anniversary in November.
Featuring the Sixth Doctor and Peri the short story sees the pair materialise on the planet Koturia for a wedding that turns out to be a far more dangerous proposition than they ever expected. It marks the return of a formidable old foe whose genius matches the Doctor’s!
Can the Doctor outwit this villain, save Peri and stop the wedding in time?
Richelle Mead commented:
“I’ve always loved watching Colin Baker as the Doctor. When he’s on the screen, you can’t take your off eyes off of him – and no, I’m not just talking about his infamous wardrobe! Everything him about is larger than life: his personality, his ingenuity, his biting humour. He’s one of the darker of the Doctors, and yet through it all, that heroism and need to do what’s right never fails. That’s what makes him so fascinating to me. It’s an author’s dream to be able to write with a character like that.”
The eBook is available to pre-order now for release on the 23rd June for £1.99 from Amazon.
Something Borrowed follows on from short stories by Eoin Colfer, Michael Scott, Marcus Sedgwick, Philip Reeve and Patrick Ness. A paperback anthology of the eleven eshorts, The Doctor Who Collection: 50th Anniversary will be published, alongside the final eshort featuring the Eleventh Doctor, on 23 November 2013.
