Revisit the Doctor, Amy & Rory with Three BBC Books

It’s been a while, but for some of us the era of the Eleventh Doctor and the Ponds is one of the series’ high points. If you’ve worn out your Doctor Who Series 5, 6 and 7a DVDs, why not try this trio of tales in book form?

Written by George Mann, Jonathan Morris and Naomi Alderman, these titles were released back in 2011 but they make good reading, with the early years of Moffat’s era expertly recreated.

Paradox Lost by George Mann

London 1910- an unsuspecting thief finds himself confronted by a grey-skinned creature intent on devouring his mind. London 2789- a decrepit android is dredged from the bottom of the Thames; when re-activated he has carries a warning that can only be delivered to one man ‘the Doctor’.

Spanning a thousand years the Doctor, Amy and Rory have to solve the mystery. If they fail, a race of psychic energy feeding aliens known as the Squall will devour the world…

Touched By An Angel by Jonathan Morris

Touched By An Angel – a brand new BBC Doctor Who novel by Jonathan Morris – concerns an angel called Monica who is tasked with bring the word of God to people at a…no, wait…that’s the CBS TV series of the same name.

Touched By An Angel - a brand new BBC Doctor Who novel by Jonathan Morris – is an ode to the duel nature of letting love into our lives, of embracing the loneliness, of…no, wait…that’s the poem by Maya Angelou of the same name.

Touched By An Angel- a brand new BBC Doctor Who novel by Jonathan Morris – sees the Doctor once again come face to face with his deadliest adversaries: the Weeping Angels.

In 2003 Rebecca Whittaker died in a road accident. Her husband Mark is still mourning when he receives an envelope- dated eight years ago- containing a set of instructions and a message: “You can save her”.

As Mark is given the chance to save his wife, the Doctor, Amy and Rory must save the whole world from the Weeping Angels because this time they’re using history itself as a weapon.

This book has recently been reissued by BBC Books as part of its Monster Collection.

Borrowed Time by Naomi Alderman

This adventure finds the Eleventh Doctor, Amy and Rory caught up in the machinations of Mr Symington and Mr Blenkinsop whose line of business involves lending time (literally!) to people who do not have enough of it. However, things take a turn for the deadly when the loan sharks decide to collect on their investments…

Paradox Lost,Touched By An Angel and Borrowed Time can all be purchased from Amazon in print and Kindle formats. If you didn’t pick them up the first time around, now is the time!

    “Borrowed Time” sounds like a winner.

    You kinda don’t realise what you have lost till it’s gone. When I think of some of my complaints about the Moff era, I am surprised at how much I really loved it. I miss Amy, Rory and Matt’s Doctor already and from a slight distance can see more how effective it was.
