I have two Doctor Who books out this summer, one fiction, one non-fiction.
The King’s Dragon
They called it Enamour. It turned minds, sold merchandise, and swayed elections. And it did its job far too well…
In the city-state of Geath, the King lives in a golden hall, and the people want for nothing. Everyone is happy and everyone is rich. Or so it seems. When the Doctor, Amy and Rory look beneath the surface, they discover a city of secrets. In dark corners, strange creatures are stirring. At the heart of the hall, a great metal dragon oozes gold. Then the Herald appears, demanding the return of her treasure… And next come the gunships.
The battle for possession of the treasure has begun, and only the Doctor and his friends can save the people of the city from being destroyed in the crossfire of an ancient civil war. But will the King surrender his new-found wealth? Or will he fight to keep it?
Impossible Worlds, Impossible Things: Cultural Perspectives on Doctor Who, Torchwood and The Sarah Jane Adventures
Edited by: Ross P. Garner, Melissa Beattie and Una McCormack
The successful regeneration of Doctor Who in the twenty-first century has sparked unprecedented popular success and renewed interest within the academy.
The ten essays assembled in this volume draw on a variety of critical approaches–from cultural theory to audience studies, to classical reception and musicology–to form a wide-ranging interdisciplinary discussion of Doctor Who, classic and new, and its spin-off series, Torchwood and The Sarah Jane Adventures.
With additional contributions from Andrew Pixley, Robert Shearman, Barnaby Edwards, and Matt Hills, the volume is intended to be accessible to everyone, from interested academics in relevant fields to the general public.
