Younger fans can enjoy a new collection of stories starring four of the Doctor Who’s best-loved companions in The Day She Saved The Doctor.
Written by popular authors Susan Calman, Jenny Colgan, Dorothy Koomson and Jacqueline Rayner, the stories will feature Clara, Rose, Bill and Sarah Jane Smith as they explore time and space, get into trouble, fight enemies with the Doctor and – more often than not – step in to save his life.
Recognising the Doctor’s female friends from across the show’s history, and in celebration of female talent in science fiction, the collection will publish on International Women’s Day, 8 March 2018.
It also marks the year in which the role of the Doctor will be taken up by a female actor for the first time in the BBC series’ history. Capaldi’s Twelfth Doctor will regenerate in the upcoming Christmas special, revealing Jodie Whittaker’s Thirteenth Doctor.
Complete with cover design by Kelly Wagner, The Day She Saved The Doctor is perfect for primary and teenaged readers as well as Whovians of all ages.
