New Novel Covers Revealed
Click a pic to enlarge!
The covers for the new Doctor and Martha books have been revealed.
Here's a quick recap on what the books have in store:
The Wooden Heart By Martin Day - On a large silver spaceship, seemingly deserted and spinning slowly
between the stars, Martha and the Doctor make a horrific discovery. Is this really a floating tomb, and why has a stretch
of wooded countryside suddenly appeared in the middle of the craft? Things become even more mysterious as they explore the
woods and find a village within - a village traumatised by missing children...This work features the Doctor and Martha as
played by David Tennant and Freema Agyeman in the acclaimed hit series from BBC Television.
Sting Of The Zygons By Stephen Cole - The TARDIS lands the Doctor and Martha in the Lake District in
1909, where a small village is being terrorised by a giant, scaly monster. The search is on for the elusive 'Beast of Cumbria',
and explorers, naturalists and hunters from across the country are descending on the hills. King Edward VII himself is on
his way to join the search, with a knighthood for whoever finds the Beast. But there is more at work in the Lakes than just
a monster, and when the Doctor discovers certain old enemies have made an appearance, the hunting party - and even the king
- may find danger they couldn't have imagined. This work features the Doctor and Martha as played by David Tennant and Freema
Agyeman in the acclaimed hit series from BBC Television.
The Last Dodo By Jacqueline Rayner - After a trip to the zoo, the Doctor and Martha go in search of
a real live dodo, and are transported by the TARDIS to the mysterious Museum of the Last Ones. There, in the Earth section,
they discover every extinct creature up to the present day - billions of them, from the tiniest insect to the biggest dinosaur,
all still alive and in suspended animation. Preservation is the Museum's only job - collecting the last of every endangered
species from all over the universe. And for millennia the Museum has been trying to trace one elusive specimen: the last of
the Time Lords...This work features the Doctor and Martha as played by David Tennant and Freema Agyeman in the acclaimed hit
series from BBC Television.

Recovery almost has a transmission date! Hoorah! It has been narrowed down to being broadcast in Week 9 of the BBC
schedule which means it should appear on our screens between 24th February and 2nd March 2007.
The BBC Press Office says:
David Tennant and Sarah Parish star in a powerful drama for BBC One, written by Bafta award-winning
writer Tony Marchant – creator of Holding On, Crime And Punishment, Kid In The Corner and The Knight's Tale.
Alan and Tricia Hamilton are very happy. He's the head of a building firm and on top of his
game, while she's a part-time beautician and a mother to their two sons.
But one day their perfect, if unremarkable, life is torn apart when a last-minute decision
to pop out for a quick drink with a colleague sees Alan step out in front of a passing car.
The accident leaves him in a deep coma but with remarkably few physical injuries. Desperately worried about him, Tricia is
delighted when he comes round – only to discover that the man she loved has disappeared. His behaviour has changed;
he has lost all of his inhibitions and he veers from angry and frustrated to vulnerable and childlike. Simple tasks such as
making toast and getting dressed are beyond him, he is unable to hold down the job he loves and he plays and laughs with his
sons as if he's a child.
Alan's behaviour puts his relationship with Tricia under intolerable stress. She longs to
find the husband she loves in there somewhere – but fears she may have lost him for ever.
Tony Marchant's script was partly inspired by research he undertook with the charity Headway,
but also deals with the concept of identity.
Bright Young Things Terrestrial Premiere
Channel 4 will play host to the terrestrial premiere of Bright Young Things this week.
Set in the 1930s, the world of the Bright Young Things is one of nightclubs, dancing, jazz and
speed. Their lives revolve around an endless series of parties and pleasure seeking: motorcars, jazz bands, gossip journalism,
drugs, gramophones… Inevitably, however, the frantic pace of living takes its toll and one by one they begin to crash
and burn in the search for newer and faster sensations.
David plays the role Ginger Littlejohn. It will be broadcast on Friday 16th February at 12:30am.

David Talks About The New Series Of Doctor Who
David has been speaking to the TV Times about the new series of Doctor Who and revealed that in the first episode, Smith
and Jones, the Doctor and Martha will meet an alien known as the Judoon.
'The Judoon are pretty extraordinary, they're
sort of intergalactic stormtroopers who take Martha and I to the moon,' says David.
'It's just part of the madness and
brilliance of doing this show that it seems to keep bettering itself everytime.'
David is also excited about all the guest
stars who'll be turning up when the series returns in March.
'We've got Dinnerladies star Anne Reod and Roy Marsden, best
known for playing Commander Adam Dalgliesh, appearing in episode one,' he reveals.
'Dean Lennox Kelly is in episode two,
Ardal O'Hanlon in episode three and Mark Gatiss in episode six - they just keep coming.'
Speaking on rumours that he is
set to quit the show after this series David said 'You shouldn't believe evrything you read in the papers.'
What to look out for in the new series:
Martha Jones - The Doctor runs into medical student Martha at a hospital.
'She's a very different character to Rose.' says David.
A new blue suit - The Doctor has a change of clothes. 'It's an
altenative suit, but that doesn't mean that we've lost the old one'. smiles David.
Shakespeare - In episode two, the Time
Lord and Martha go back in time to meet William Shakespeare in the original Globe Theatre!
Art Deco Daleks - Episodes four
and five will see the Doctor and Martha clas with the dreaded Daleks when they travel to 1930's New York.
