BBC Books have announced three brand-new ‘New Series Adventures’ to be released on April 11th 2013. It will see the 11th Doctor and new companion Clara Oswin Oswald battle the Daleks, the Cybermen and original creation The Shroud! These will be the first New Series Adventure to be released since Dark Horizons last July.
The Dalek Generation by Nicholas Briggs
Sunlight 349 is one of countless Dalek Foundation worlds, planets created to house billions of humanoids suffering from economic hardship. The Doctor arrives there, suspicious of any world where the Daleks are apparently a force for good – and determined to find out the truth.
He soon finds himself in court, facing the “Dalek Litigator”. But do his arch-enemies really have nothing more to threaten than legal action? The Doctor knows they have a far more sinister plan – but how can he convince those who have lived under the benevolence of the Daleks for a generation? However, convince them he must, and soon. For on another Foundation planet, archaeologists have unearthed the most dangerous technology in the universe . . .
Plague of the Cybermen by Justin Richards
When the Doctor arrives in the 19th-century village of Klimtenburg, he discovers the residents suffering from some kind of plague – a “wasting disease”. The victims face a horrible death – but what’s worse, the dead
seem to be leaving their graves. The Plague Warriors have returned . . .
The Doctor is confident he knows what’s really happening; he understands where the dead go, and he’s sure the Plague Warriors are just a myth. But as some of the Doctor’s oldest and most terrible enemies start to awaken, he realises that maybe – just maybe – he’s misjudged the situation.
Shroud of Sorrow by Tommy Donbavand
It is the day after John F Kennedy’s assassination and the faces of the dead are everywhere. PC Reg Cranfield sees his deceased father in the mists along Totter’s Lane. Reporter Mae Callon sees her late grandmother in a coffee stain on her desk. FBI Special Agent Warren Skeet finds his long-dead partner staring back at him from raindrops on a window pane.
Then the faces begin to talk, and scream – and push through into our world. As the alien Shroud begins to feast on the grief of a world in mourning, can the Doctor dig deep enough into his own sorrow to save mankind?
