Wes Imlay spies something interesting on the horizon for Doctor Who fans and it’s not the new series.
Thanks to “Day of the Doctor”, the 50th Anniversary episode of Doctor Who, we got our first real look at John Hurt’s ‘War Doctor’ and we got our first glimpse of the Time War. There have been pockets of the Who fandom clamoring for the chance to see the War Doctor in action, and now it looks as though they are going to get their wish. The War Doctor is returning in the upcoming book “Engines of War” written byGeorge Mann.
According to the book description on Amazon:
“The death of billions is as nothing to us Doctor, if it helps defeat the Daleks.”
The Great Time War has raged for centuries, ravaging the universe. Scores of human colony planets are now overrun by Dalek occupation forces. A weary, angry Doctor leads a flotilla of Battle TARDISes against the Dalek stronghold but in the midst of the carnage, the Doctor’s TARDIS crashes to a planet below: Moldox.
As the Doctor is trapped in an apocalyptic landscape, Dalek patrols roam amongst the wreckage, rounding up the remaining civilians. But why haven’t the Daleks simply killed the humans?
Searching for answers the Doctor meets ‘Cinder’, a young Dalek hunter. Their struggles to discover the Dalek plan take them from the ruins of Moldox to the halls of Gallifrey, and set in motion a chain of events that will change everything. And everyone.
An epic novel of the Great Time War featuring the War Doctor as played by John Hurt.
We get the chance to read a story from the Time War and it appears we get a new companion as well! The book is set to release on July 31st, 2014.
