Welcome!

Welcome to Tardis Point News. This blog is no longer running, as I started watching Parks and Recreation and am still mourning over the cancellation of Eureka. Don't stop watching Doctor Who though, which is and always will be the best TV show ever.

The Dalek Project

A new Doctor Who graphic novel has some details released by BBC Books. It is called "The Dalek Project". It is written by Justin Richards and Mike Collins, and will be out in September. 

The first in a stunning new series of epic Graphic Novels from BBC Books, featuring the Doctor as played by David Tennant in the hit series from BBC Television.

1917: The Great War is at its fiercest and most terrible. But things are about to get even worse... When the Doctor arrives at Helicombe Hall in England he discovers a house full of mystery. There are locked doors and forbidden rooms, dustsheets cover guilty secrets, the maid Mary Carter is scared of the ghosts... And that's before Corporal Anderson finds the end of his muddy corpse-filled trench ends in the drawing room. Armaments manufacturer Lord Hellcombe has a new secret weapon he believes will win the war. But when the Doctor witnesses the final demonstration he begins to realise how much danger everyone is in. Because Lord Hellcombe claims to have invented the Dalek. Except, of course, that nothing is quite what it seems. The Doctor and his new friends must draw on every type of early 20th century technology and every element of human ingenuity and bravery if they are to discover the truth and to survive. If they are to prevent the entire Western Front of World War One from becoming part of The Dalek Project.

The Ultimate Monster Guide

The cover and synopsis for a new Doctor Who reference book has been released. It is called The Ultimate Monster Guide and is written by Justin Richards, who written the "Aliens and Enemies" book, "Monsters and Villains", "Creatures and Demons", "Starships and Spacestations", books 1, 4, 7 and 10 of the Darksmith Legacy series, and finally the Doctor Who Files series. It's an encyclopedia of the Doctor's enemies since his 1st body. The book will be released on 8th June for £14.99 and includes 352 pages.

For The Ultimate Monster Guide, Doctor Who historian Justin Richards has completely revised and updated entries from his first three bestselling reference books - and included a wealth of new material from both the current and the classic series - to create the most comprehensive guide to the Doctor's enemies ever published. From Adipose and Autons to Zarbi and Zygons, this guide tells you everything you need to know about the many dastardly creatures the Doctor has fought over the 46 years since he first appeared on television. The Guide also includes behind the scenes secrets of how the monsters were created, as well as design drawings and images. Find out how the Cybermen were designed over the years, and how Davros was resurrected to lead his Daleks once again. Discover the computer magic that made the Beast possible, and the make-up wizardry that created the Weeping Angels. Learn how many incarnations of the Master the Doctor has encountered, and which other misguided Time Lords he has defeated... Lavishly illustrated with photos and artwork throughout, The Ultimate Monster Guide is essential reading for all travellers in time and space!
