Doctor Who: The Spear of Destiny cover

The Third Doctor seeks The Spear of Destiny in new eBook

The third in a series of sensational short stories to celebrate 50 years of Doctor Who, is being written by Marcus Sedgwick. The multi award-winning author of Floodland, My Sword Hand is Singing and Midwinterblood, Sedgwick’s short story sees the Third Doctor and Jo trying to find The Spear of Destiny.

The Third Doctor and Jo Grant are trying to track down the magical spear of Odin when they find themselves caught up in a vicious battle between two Viking tribes. But one of the Vikings is even more dangerous than he appears to be. Can the Doctor stop the spear getting into the wrong hands before it’s too late?

Marcus Sedgwick commented: “To me, Jon Pertwee is the quintessential Doctor – a hero of both thought and action. When I was young he seemed like a schoolmaster you were a bit afraid of, and yet really liked at the same time. Bringing him back to life and pitting him against his old nemesis, The Master, was a huge thrill for me and I hope fans will recognise Jon in the pages of my story.
