New 3rd Doctor Novel - Harvest of Time


BBC Books have announced that bestselling author Alastair Reynolds will be writing a novel for the Doctor Who range, entitled Harvest of Time. The book will feature the Third Doctor (as played by Jon Pertwee) and will be the first all-new adventure for a "Past Doctor" that BBC Books has published since the show’s return in 2005. A novel set on both 20th century Earth and far into the future, it will have the Doctor battling his arch-nemesis, The Master, to save the universe – and facing the ultimate moral crisis.

Alastair Reynolds commented, ‘Doctor Who has been a big part of my life for forty years. To put things into perspective, when I was little I did not want to go round to another boy's house because he had Dalek wallpaper, a concept I found unspeakably terrifying. I am delighted and honored to have the chance to write a novel featuring not only one of my favorite Doctors, but the single greatest villain ever imagined: The Master.’

Harvest of Time will be
published as a hardback in 2013 priced £16.99 (RRP)
