THE RELICS OF TIME
Returning to Nest Cottage one year after the events of Hornets’ Nest, the Doctor finds Mrs Wibbsey settled into the local community. But when a vital component of the TARDIS goes missing, it seems the Doctor’s housekeeper is to blame. All they have in return is a bag of strange artefacts. Each seems to be a clue, leading them on a paper chase through Time. First stop: Roman Britain, and the case of a wizard who is not all he seems…
THE DEMON OF PARIS
Someone has painted the Doctor’s likeness into a famous poster, and it leads him and Mrs Wibbsey to Paris in the 1890s, home of countless artisans and their muses. There is murder on the streets, and whispers that Toulouse-Lautrec is to blame. Immersed in both the delights of the Moulin Rouge and the shadows of Montmarte Cemetary, the travellers soon discover the gruesome truth…
A SHARD OF ICE
Reunited with Mike Yates, the Doctor heads further back in time, to an isolated European landscape of snow and ice. Literally enmeshed in the pages of a fairy tale, they must confront the Ice Queen who once placed a shard of ice in the heart of Albert Tiermann – storyteller to the King. But horror lurks in the mountains, and once again the Doctor is stalked by a familiar enemy.
It’s New York, 1976, and a meteorite has landed in Central Park. Alice Trefusis touches it and is given the powers of a superheroine, just like in the comic books. When the TARDIS arrives on the trail of yet another clue, something is immediately wrong with the Doctor. What strange force is sapping his strength – and who are all those other Doctors…?
Hot on the trail of Mrs Wibbsey, the Doctor and Mike arrive at their final destination. Who has lured them there, and why? On Sepulchre, all will be revealed…
The box set DOCTOR WHO – HORNETS’ NEST will also be published in September 2010.
