DOCTOR WHO: THE DALEK GENERATION

By Nicholas Briggs

ISBN: 978-0-385-34674-0

 

DOCTOR WHO: SHROUD OF SORROW

By Tommy Donbavand

ISBN: 978-0-385-34678-8

 

DOCTOR WHO: PLAGUE OF THE CYBERMEN

By Justin Richards

ISBN: 978-0-385-34676-4

 

Since Doctor Who’s 2005 revival after an almost fifteen-year hiatus, the British sci-fi show has become an American cult phenomenon, as an Entertainment Weekly cover feature noted in August 2012. But the show’s U.S. following is such that “cult” may well be an understatement. In September, 2.47 million Americans watched Matt Smith and Karen Gillan as the Doctor and Amy in the show’s season seven premiere, giving BBC America its highest rating ever—previously, in 2011, the show was iTunes’ number one most downloaded television series, outselling favorites such as Glee and Mad Men. In December,Doctor Who won TV Guide’s “Fan Favorites,” and 2.4 million viewers tuned in to the show’s Christmas special.

Who fervor is on the rise, given the show’s 50th anniversary this year, so Broadway is thrilled to introduce its forthcoming paperback original Doctor Who tie-in series, sure to feed that insatiable fandom. Featuring all-new Eleventh Doctor adventures and to be published on April 2 to coincide with the new Doctor Who episodes that will air on BBC America starting March 30, Justin Richards’s Doctor Who: Plague of the Cybermen, Nicholas Briggs’s Doctor Who: The Dalek Generation, and Tommy Donbavand’s Doctor Who: Shroud of Sorrow are penned in collaboration with BBC’s Cardiff-based TV production team. These authors are given advance access to the scripts of forthcoming episodes and made privy to the secrets of the Doctor’s future before even the most fanatical of fans. Approved by the BBC to make sure nothing is overlooked, these books have the intimate and authentic feel of lost episodes.

In Doctor Who: The Dalek Generation, we find the Doctor investigating a world in which the Daleks suspiciously seem to be a force for good. In Doctor Who: Shroud of Sorrow, the aftermath of JFK’s assassination is the setting for an attack by an alien Shroud feasting on the grief of a world in mourning. In Doctor Who: Plague of the Cybermen, the Doctor discovers the residents of a 19th-century village beset by a plague that causes its victims to leave their graves. As we follow the Doctor through new catastrophes in history, on earth, and in space, reading Doctor Who: Plague of the Cybermen, Doctor Who: The Dalek Generation, and Doctor Who: Shroud of Sorrow might just be the next best thing to traveling around in a TARDIS, sonic screwdriver in tow, and will leave fans eagerly awaiting Broadway’s fourth all-new Doctor Who adventure, acclaimed science-fiction author Alastair Reynolds’s Doctor Who: Harvest of Time, featuring the Third Doctor, in June.

 

ABOUT THE AUTHORS:

JUSTIN RICHARDS has written numerous science-fiction and fantasy novels, including several previous Doctor Who tie-ins. He is creative consultant for BBC Books’ range of Doctor Who fiction.

NICHOLAS BRIGGS is a British actor and writer who has worked on Doctor Who since the 1980s. He has played numerous roles on the show but is best known as the voice of the Doctor’s archenemy, the Daleks.

TOMMY DONBAVAND is an author, actor, and playwright best known for his Scream Street novels for kids. He is also a huge fan of all things Doctor Who, plays blues harmonica, and makes a mean balloon poodle.

ALASTAIR REYNOLDS’ novels have appeared on numerous “best SF” lists and won several major awards.

About "Doctor Who: The Complete Fifth Series" - 6 disc set

In the new rebooted series from BAFTA-winning writer Steven Moffat (Steven Spielberg's upcoming Tintin, Sherlock, Coupling), the Doctor has regenerated into a brand-new man, but danger strikes before he can even recover.  Matt Smith debuts as the new, Eleventh incarnation of the famous Time Lord alongside a new travelling companion, the enigmatic Amy Pond (Karen Gillan).  Amy and the Doctor explore time and space, visiting 17th century Venice, France during the 1890s and the United Kingdom in the far future, now an entire nation floating in space. As always, wherever the Doctor goes, his oldest enemies are never far behind - the Daleks are hatching a new master plan from the heart of war-torn London in the 1940s. But they are not the only strange creatures the Doctor and Amy must face - there are also alien vampires, humanoid reptiles, old enemies such as the Weeping Angels, and a silent menace that follows Amy and the Doctor around wherever they go. This 6-disc set includes all 13-episodes from this thrilling series plus two exclusive new scenes, Doctor Who: Confidentials, outtakes and much more.

Penned by award winning lead writer and executive producer Steven Moffat (Sherlock, The Adventures of Tintin) and starring BAFTA nominee Matt Smith, the first part of the sixth series premiered on BBC AMERICA this spring and garnered record ratings for the channel. In addition, it earned rave reviews, including an “A” and a spot on “The Must List” from Entertainment Weekly, was featured on NBC’s Today show and The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson and over 6,500 fans packed Comic-Con’s Doctor Who panel where stars Matt Smith and Karen Gillan made their first SDCC appearance together. The sixth season includes a two-part premiere that was set and filmed in the U.S. as well as an episode penned by long-time Doctor Who fan and award-winning writer Neil Gaiman (Coraline, Neverwhere, The Sandman). This must-own release for all sci-fi fans contains every thrilling episode from the widely-acclaimed sixth season along with the 2010 Christmas Special starring Michael Gambon (Harry Potter), “A Christmas Carol,” and a plethora of bonus features including exclusive “Meanwhile in the Tardis” scenes, Doctor Who Confidential, Monster Files, and Audio Commentary.  


About "Doctor Who: Series Seven, Part One" - 2 disc set

Doctor Who returns, after a record-breaking season on BBC AMERICA, with five new blockbuster episodes in the first half of Series Seven. Join the Doctor (Matt Smith) and his companions Amy and Rory (Karen Gillan and Arthur Darvill, aka “the Ponds”) on their latest escapades through space and time.  Featuring an asylum full of Daleks, a spaceship full of dinosaurs and a town called Mercy in the Wild West, this explosive series concludes with Amy and Rory’s heart-breaking farewell – a race against time through the streets of Manhattan. Will the Doctor really lose the Ponds forever? There’s only one way to find out. Bonus features include the BBC AMERICA specials The Science of Doctor Who and Doctor Who at Comic-Con, as well as the Pond Life featurettes, the prequel to Asylum of the Daleks, and The Making of The Gunslinger.

    I absolutely love Doctor Who. The infection of it, I have spread. My favorite adventure may have to be 'Vincent and the Doctor'. It was splendid and Van Gogh happens to be one of the most fantastic painters, in my opinion.
