Doctor Who and the Krikkitmen

krikkitmen.jpg ? In Stock £16.99

Category: Original Doctor Who Novels

The Doctor promised Romana the end of the universe, so she’s less than impressed when what she gets is a cricket match. But then the award ceremony is interrupted by eleven figures in white uniforms and peaked skull helmets, wielding bat-shaped weapons that fire lethal bolts of light into the screaming crowd. The Krikkitmen are back.

 

Millions of years ago, the people of Krikkit learned they were not alone in the universe, and promptly launched a xenophobic crusade to wipe out all other life-forms. After a long and bloody conflict, the Time Lords imprisoned Krikkit within an envelope of Slow Time, a prison that could only be opened with the Wicket Gate key, a device that resembles – to human eyes, at least – an oversized set of cricket stumps…

 

From Earth to Gallifrey, from Bethselamin to Devalin, from Krikkit to Mareeve II to the far edge of infinity, the Doctor and Romana are tugged into a pan-galactic conga with fate as they rush to stop the Krikkitmen gaining all five pieces of the key. If they fail, the entire cosmos faces a fiery retribution that will leave nothing but ashes…

Doctor Who Magazine 521

DWM-521.jpg ? In Stock £5.99

Category: Doctor Who Magazine

“There is no other job in the world like this,” Jodie Whittaker tells the new issue of DWM. Jodie also discusses her regeneration scene and working with costume designer Ray Holman: “The very first meeting we had was all very secret and incognito. As we were talking I was completely distracted by the colour of the wallpaper behind us. I told Roy I absolutely loved that colour, and that’s the colour of the trousers.”

 

Also in this issue, Chris Chibnall looks forward to a new era: “What’s evident is Doctor Who’s extraordinary ability to embrace change while remaining exactly the same show that people love.”

The Black Archive 15: Full Circle

black_archive_full_circle.jpg ? In Stock £6.99

Category: Black Archive, The

The Black Archive – a series of book-length looks at single Doctor Who stories from 1963 to the present day.

 

‘Well, evolution goes in quantum leaps, but it doesn’t go that fast.’

 

1980 was a time of profound change for Doctor Who, with a new producer and script editor both

keen to overhaul the series at all levels. During the course of its 18th season the series would also undergo a complete change of its leading cast.

 

Positioned in the middle of this pivotal season, Full Circle (1980) exemplifies the new production team’s vision, one that rejected the fantasy overtones of previous years and put a more science-driven ethos at the heart of the series. It attempts to present the concept of evolution to a tea-time family audience in an entertaining way, dramatising it by depicting the inhabitants of a spaceship and a primordial swamp in conflict with each other.

 

But stranger elements lurk beneath the surface, forgotten and waiting to re-emerge. This book puts Full Circle under the microscope and discovers a mixed heritage of discredited science, pseudoscience and mysticism. It also considers the effect this story, the first to be written by someone who grew up as a fan of Doctor Who, had on the evolution of the series itself.
