Sophie Aldred writes Doctor Who book

Doctor Who: At Childhood’s End is the first Doctor Who novel from Sophie Aldred who played the Seventh Doctor’s friend Ace, published 6th February 2020.

Once, a girl called Ace travelled the universe with the Doctor – until, in the wake of a terrible tragedy they parted company. Decades later, she is known as Dorothy McShane, the reclusive millionaire philanthropist who heads global organisation A Charitable Earth.

Dorothy is haunted by terrible nightmares, vivid dreams that begin just as scores of young runaways are vanishing from the dark alleyways of London. Could the disappearances be linked to sightings of sinister creatures lurking in the city shadows? Why has an alien satellite entered a secret orbit around the Moon?

Investigating the satellite with Ryan, Graham and Yaz, the Doctor is thrown together with Ace once more. Together they must unravel a malevolent plot that will cost thousands of lives. But can the Doctor atone for her past incarnation’s behaviour – and how much must Ace sacrifice to win victory not only for herself, but for the Earth? Past or future, which path do you choose?

Sophie Aldred said:

“I was thrilled and honoured to have been asked to create this opportunity for the Thirteenth Doctor and Ace to meet each other. I had always hoped to be able to offer classic fans an encounter between Ace and a current Doctor in some form or other and I hope fans of the present team will enjoy the blending of two eras of the most amazing programme in the Universe.”

At Childhood’s End will also be available as an audiobook in CD and digital download from 6th February 2020, narrated by Sophie Aldred.

We’re back after our summer break, Martyn is joined once again by Sam Michael and Chris Walker-Thomson, as the trio discuss the 1999 Doctor Who parody ‘The Curse of Fatal Death’.

Obvisouly, with this being the podcast it is. They don’t stick to the subject for long.

Doctor Who: The Curse of Fatal Death is a Doctor Who special made for the Red Nose Day charity telethon in the United Kingdom, and was originally broadcast in four parts on BBC One on 12 March 1999 under the title Doctor Who and the Curse of Fatal Death. Later home video releases are formatted as two parts and drop the “and” in the title. It follows in a long tradition of popular British television programmes producing short, light-hearted specials for such telethon events.
