There was an announcement on Twitter and Facebook this Friday. Some of you may have seen it, but for those who missed it…
I’ve written a book for Doctor Who!
To celebrate 60 years of Doctor Who, the BBC are releasing the Decades Collection. I’ve written a novella set in the 1970s, about the Twelfth Doctor, titled The Cradle.
Below is the (gorgeous) cover and a brief synopsis to give you a taste of what’s coming.
“London, 1978. Tensions are high in the East End, and one day on their way to school, Seema and her friends are threatened by a group of boys from the National Front.
Fearful for their lives, the friends find themselves saved by the appearance of a mysterious, seemingly broken-down bus.
Inside, it’s like nothing they’ve ever seen. What is this strange place? The tall, grumpy man with white hair might know the answers, but he seems just as scared as they are...”
I’m writing alongside some other wonderful authors, and you can read more about their books here.
It’s a real privilege to get to write a book for a show that’s been around so long and is so thoroughly beloved. Twelve is one of my absolutely favourite incarnations of the Doctor (closely followed by Thirteen) so I was utterly delighted to get to write this story!
