Hey Quick Reads: Where’s Our Doctor Who Book?!

We’re big fans of Quick Reads, an initiative to get people reading, here at Kasterborous Towers, but this year, it appears we’ve been let down.

Since 2006’s I Am A Dalek, we’ve had some fantastic little books from Quick Reads; they even tempted the mighty Terrance Dicks into forging new stories about Cybermen and Judoon. But this year, there’s a Jeffrey Archer short story compilation, a gritty tale by Lynda LaPlante, and a tome about putting up curtains (or something) called Blackout by Emily Barr. That’s right – no Doctor Who!

We’ve had five Tenth Doctor books, and a measly two Eleventh Doctor ones. There was a one-year break from the range between Code of the Krillitanes and 2012’s Magic of the AngelsLast year’s The Silurian Gift (which was bold enough to bring back the Myrka!) looked to have cemented Doctor Who back into the range’s regular releases, but alas.

It seems there are so few Eleventh Doctor books on sale, and it really is a great shame. One from Quick Reads may have been an olive branch from the BBC to the minds of the masses, a sign to say, ‘don’t worry, we’ll never forget about Matt either.’

Maybe next year…?
