The second instalment in a sensational series of stories celebrating the 50th anniversary of Doctor Who is to be written by New York Times best-selling author Michael Scott. The Nameless City, featuring the Second Doctor and Jamie, follows Artemis Fowl author Eoin Colfer launching the series with A Big Hand For The Doctor in January.
"When Jamie McCrimmon brings the Doctor a mysterious book, little does he realise the danger contained within its pages. The book transports the TARDIS to a terrifying glass city on a distant world, where the Archons are intent on getting revenge on the Time Lord for an ancient grudge."
The short ebook will be available from February 23. You can pre-order from the following retailers (these links take you to sites outside of our control):
One of Ireland's most successful and prolific writers for both children and adults, Michael Scott has over 100 titles to his credit. In 2007, The Alchemyst: The Secrets of the Immortal Nicholas Flamel, the first in a ground-breaking young adult fantasy series, launched straight into the New York Times bestseller’s list.
The author commented: “Everyone has their ‘own’ Doctor – usually the one they first started watching. Patrick Troughton, the Second Doctor, was mine and so writing this story was an opportunity to revisit a really important part of my childhood. There are elements of Patrick Troughton in every Doctor who followed – that's how influential and important he is.”
A video interview with Michael Scott will be available to view on doctorwho.tv on February 11, and all eleven short stories will be available in a printed anthology from November 23.
