Our friends over at Hasslein Books have two, exciting new Doctor Who titles, now available to buy.

Who Beyond 50: Celebrating Five Decades of Doctor Who

Few television series have remained in production for decades. Fewer have come back from cancellation to spawn multiple spinoffs. And even fewer have thrived following the loss of their lead actor. Amazingly, Doctor Who can proudly boast all three claims.

Brian J Robb and Paul Simpson have assembled 50 thematic, chronological essays covering a wide variety of Who icons over the past five decades. The long-time collaborators posted preliminary versions at Sci-Fi Bulletin, but have delved into far greater detail for this collected edition, examining not only the show itself, but the background of each actor to play the role of the Doctor and each showrunner who helped keep the show alive, as well as the novels, the audios, the monsters, the companions, the music, the effects, fandom, and much more.

But Who Beyond 50 is more than just another TV retrospective. It's a grand exploration of one of the most beloved series of all time. It's a celebration of Who's surprises and successes, and an honest account of its faults and failures. It's all here. And it's about time.

Lost in Time and Space: An Unofficial Guide to the Uncharted Journeys of Doctor Who

BBC’s immensely popular Doctor Who series is a significant part of British pop culture and a cult favorite worldwide; the televised episodes, however, are just the tip of the iceberg, as the Doctor has referenced countless encounters never expanded upon onscreen. RiffTrax.com writer Matthew J Elliott has accepted the Herculean task of chronicling those “stories between the stories” in Lost in Time and Space: An Unofficial Guide to the Uncharted Journeys of Doctor Who.

Every character the Doctor met off-screen, every place he visited between episodes, and every event he witnessed while the cameras were turned off are meticulously mapped out on a timeline spanning the entire 50 years of Doctor Who, from long before the Doctor “borrowed” the TARDIS until the last days of his eleventh incarnation. This is not a typical Doctor Who project--but, then, Matthew is not a typical Doctor Who fan.

After five decades of time-traveling adventures, you might imagine you knew all there was to know about the greatest hero in all of time and space, but it turns out he was living another life entirely while we weren't looking. This is the story of that life.

Lost in Time and Space, a softcover volume spanning 350 pages, features an insightful foreword by Alan Barnes, the author of the animated Tenth Doctor adventure The Infinite Quest, and a writer and editor for Big Finish Productions' audio dramas featuring five of the Doctor’s earlier incarnations.

Yesterday, Big Finish posted a teaser image [pictured right] with the caption "Get ready... 10:00am 26/10/15". The image featured the 10th Doctor's TARDIS with a glimpse of an old-like creature, and a small swatch of what appeared to be the 10th Doctor's brown, pinstripe suit.

This morning the company have confirmed suspicions that a whole new, exciting range of adventures with the 10th Doctor and Donna has been commissioned.

Below is this morning's press release in full:

David Tennant is returning as the Tenth Doctor alongside Catherine Tate as his companion Donna Noble in three Doctor Who Audio Dramas!

David Tennant portrayed the Doctor on screen from 2005 until 1 January 2010, returning to play alongside Matt Smith and John Hurt in the 50th Anniversary special The Day of the Doctor in 2013. Catherine Tate made her debut as Donna in December 2006, and after a series and two festive specials she made her last appearance alongside David on 1 January 2010. Their on-screen partnership is generally regarded as one of the great high-points of the enduring science fiction phenomenon.

'I still remember the sense of joy I had when I heard that David had been asked to play the Doctor,' says Big Finish executive producer Jason Haigh-Ellery. 'We were all so pleased for him — as we knew how much Doctor Who meant to him. And now David comes full circle, back doing Doctor Who with Big Finish — except that this time he’s playing the Doctor! It’s the same but different — it’s wonderful to have him back!'

Doctor Who: The Tenth Doctor Adventures will be released in May 2016 and comprises three thrilling full cast audio adventures.

The series opens with Doctor Who – The Tenth Doctor Adventures: Technophobia by Matt Fitton, which is set in a London slightly in the future, where mankind is gradually losing its ability to use everyday technology. Could there be an evil force at work?

In Doctor Who – The Tenth Doctor Adventures: Time Reaver by Jenny T Colgan the Doctor and Donna arrive on Calibris - ‘An entirely mechanical planet. Catch, hitch, fuel, fix, buy, pretty much any kind of transportation in existence.’ It’s also a world full of scoundrels, where a deadly black market has opened up in a device known only as the Time Reaver.

Finally, in Doctor Who – The Tenth Doctor Adventures: Death and the Queen by James Goss, Donna is swept along in a fairytale romance and meets the man of her dreams in the beautiful land of Goritania. What can possibly go wrong? And why has the Doctor never heard of Goritania? 

'I’ve enjoyed working with all the Doctors on TV, but David is on the only one I’d known before he became the Doctor,' says executive producer Nicholas Briggs. 'I’d worked with him on our Dalek Empire series for Big Finish and had such fun. So along with the excitement of directing new Tenth Doctor adventures, I’m so happy to be working with an old chum again.'

Doctor Who: The Tenth Doctor Adventures is produced by David Richardson, script edited by Matt Fitton and James Goss and directed by Nicholas Briggs.

'This is one of those dream projects where I’ve spent months pinching myself. I’m covered in bruises,’ says David. ‘With two major international stars in place, and the legacy of this era of the TV show to live up to, we’ve worked our socks off to try and make some very special stories for this box set. Expect adventure, fun, scares... and some tears too.'

Doctor Who – The Tenth Doctor Adventures will be released in May 2016 - exclusively on the Big Finish website. Each of the three titles are available to pre-order separately today for just £10.99 on CD or £8.99 to download.

All three stories are also available in the Doctor Who: The Tenth Doctor Adventures Volume 1 – Limited Edition set. Limited to just 5,000 copies and available exclusively from bigfinish.com, and the lavish book-sized box set includes exclusive artwork, photography, articles and a one-hour documentary featuring interviews with the stars and production team. You can pre-order the set today at the special price of £30 on CD or £25 to download – offering a £5 discount against the standard price!!

LEGO® Ideas have unveiled the brand new Doctor Who TARDIS set where fans can role-play the Doctor’s time-travel adventures!

Created by fan-designer Andrew Clark and selected by LEGO Ideas members, the set is based on the BBC’s popular and long-running television series about a Time Lord – The Doctor – exploring the universe in a blue police box. Due to trans-dimensional engineering, the TARDIS is bigger on the inside than the outside and this cool multifunctional set includes the console room that houses all the controls. 

Featuring an opening TARDIS, detachable interior console room, exclusive graphic details and steps, fans can regenerate the Doctor and defeat the evil Daleks or Weeping Angels with the help of his extraordinary companion Clara. Once the doors of the TARDIS are closed, prepare to launch into dimensions light years away from Gallifrey!

Measuring over 5” (14cm) high, 6” (16cm) wide and 9” (23cm) deep, the model contains 623 pieces to build an authentic replica.

In December 2015, the Time War will rage and only one man can save us. John Hurt is The War Doctor!

John Hurt, the world-renowned star of film and television, is returning to the role of The War Doctor, in twelve full-cast Doctor Who audio plays by Big Finish.

The War Doctor was introduced for Doctor Who’s Fiftieth Anniversary, and played a key part in the record-breaking television special The Day of the Doctor, alongside David Tennant and Matt Smith’s Doctors. He is the secret incarnation of the Time Lord — but he has shunned the title ‘Doctor’ in order to fight in the Time War against the Daleks.

Big Finish executive producer Jason Haigh-Ellery says:

“I have been a huge fan of John since first seeing him in the repeats of I, Claudius in the 1980s and in his Oscar-nominated role as the eponymous The Elephant Man. Watching his performance in The Day of the Doctor I did find myself fantasising that some far off day we might have the chance to work with him on the audio adventures of Doctor Who and now two short years later it’s happened! John wove a fantastic character together from a great script by Steven Moffat. Now we have the chance to get to know that character more and hear John stretch in the role. We’re all in for a hell of a ride as the War Doctor engages in battle. But who are the greater threat - the Daleks or the Time Lords?”

The audio adventures of The War Doctor will be told over four box sets, each containing three linked hour-long episodes. The first box set is entitled Only The Monstrous, and is written and directed by Nicholas Briggs, whose many successes for Big Finish include the BBC Audio Award-winning masterpiece Doctor Who: Dark Eyes.

Nicholas Briggs says:

“The story of the Doctor who refuses to call himself the Doctor in order to do the unthinkable upon the ultimate battlefield — all of space and time — was irresistible to me. Such a deeply disturbing and engaging character created by the formidable talents of writer Steven Moffat and actor John Hurt. It’s such a privilege to be working on this.”

The cast of The War Doctor also includes Jacqueline Pearce, who plays Time Lord Cardinal Ollistra — an arch manipulator who is waging the Time War against the Daleks. Jacqueline’s work includes The Avengers, Callan, Doctor Who: Death Comes to Time, Moondial and Russell T Davies’ Dark Season, and she is known to many science fiction fans for her role as Servalan in the cult classic Blake’s 7.

Only The Monstrous will be released in December 2015, and will be followed in February 2016 by the second volume, Infernal Devices, which is written by John Dorney, Phil Mulryne and Matt Fitton. Volumes Three and Four are currently in pre-production.

Big Finish Producer, David Richardson says:

“What an utter privilege it is to work with such an iconic actor, playing such a brilliantly devised role. This is Doctor Who at its darkest — the era in which our hero casts aside his core values in order to try and save the galaxy in its most terrible hour. We promise bold and brilliant story-telling with gripping character drama, and epic and cinematic audio productions.”

In addition to The War Doctor, November 2017 also sees a prequel box set to the saga, Doctor Who: The Eighth Doctor — The Time War, which will follow the early stages of the Time War from the Eighth Doctor’s perspective. Paul McGann stars, alongside characters first introduced in the War Doctor box sets.

Character Options has today unveiled details of a brand new Limited Edition Doctor Who 5.5” scale action figure. Images of the Missy figure, first in a new range of scale Doctor Who Collector Series toys, were revealed by Alasdair Dewar, Product Development Director, today via video on the Character Options’ website.

Missy, played by Michelle Gomez, is a villainous Time Lady who recently revealed herself as the Doctor’s arch enemy, the Master! Missy has been firmly established as a new fan favourite character, and as a collector’s figure, she is truly a must have.

The Missy figure will be available in two variants; a purple outfitted version with hat from the series finale episodes; and alternatively in her ‘Heaven’ outfit, hatless with black jacket and manic grin. The Missy figures each have 18 points of articulation and are highly detailed and decorated. Each figure head can also be swapped so that both heads can be incorporated with either outfit, and they both come with accessories. The bespoke UK Collector Series packs are perfect for display and for the first time are re-sealable, so that the figures can be enjoyed in or out of packaging without losing their collectability.

Only 4,000 units of each of the two figures are available in exclusive UK packaging at www.character-online.co.uk for the price of £19.99 each (excluding P&P). Delivery will be made to customers by early November.

Al Dewar states:

“Character Options has been designing, manufacturing and marketing Doctor Who toys since 2005, so as true fans of the brand we wanted to tell collectors the latest news in the most direct, if informal way, which is why I made the announcement in person not he website. Missy is the first of a potential new line of highly sought after 5.5-inch action figures so we expect interest to be high and we are all very excited to share this with fans and collectors alike.

Working with Michelle Gomez was great fun and she was the best subject we ever 3D scanned, patiently holding her facial expressions including her trademark Missy “sneer” for long periods of time. We know that many collectors have been eagerly waiting to see if Missy would at some point be included within our figure range, and at last, here she is.”

Our friend Martin Johnson over at EverybodyElse Productions has been in touch with details on his new Kickstarter campaign for an exciting new SciFi audio drama.

H. G. Wells’ famous novel The War of the Worlds has been adapted many times in various forms. However, none of these adaptations have been truly faithful to the original story.

Everybodyelse Productions has launched an exciting new Kickstarter campaign, running from 1st August 2015 - 5th September 2015, with the hope of bringing the original novel to life as a cinematic audio drama that promises to be faithful to the source material. Keeping the Victorian setting of southern England, this adaptation will retain the dark, scary and often horrific elements of the story that sets it apart from all previous adaptations.

The 2-hour full-cast audio drama production of H. G. Wells’ The Coming of the Martians, to be directed by Big Finish stalwart Lisa Bowerman and adapted on audio by Nick Scovell, will be produced in 5.1 surround sound with Dolby Pro Logic II surround sound encoded stereo for the CD and digital releases.

Martin Johnson, Producer of The Coming of the Martians comments:

“It has been a life-long dream of both myself and Nick to bring the original alien invasion story to life in a way it has never been done before. There is a huge audience out there just waiting to hear the spine-chilling Fighting Machines stride over them in a realistic, atmospheric soundscape and experience Victorian artillerymen battle these giant metal tripods on the river like never before. We aim to create this unique surround sound production utilising best the audio format has to offer. No silly voices, no cartoon style zaps and certainly no singing.”

Script Writer Nick Scovell adds:

“No updating, no switching continents, no re-imagining - this will be the real deal! H. G. Wells’ terrifying vision of the collapse of civilization is coming to life as he envisaged it.

Director Lisa Bowerman says:

“When it comes to the story of The War of the Worlds there’s quite a legacy of previous adaptations, most famously the Orson Wells radio adaptation back in the 1930’s. What makes this particular adaptation different is that we’re going back to the original source material, bringing in the terrifying darker elements that the novel is famous for.”            

If successfully funded, the production will be released to backers in January 2017, when EU copyright on the novel expires, and to the general public shortly after.

Imagine an incredible world where The Doctor teams up with Batman, Gandalf and Wyldstyle to defeat his evil foes; where The Doctor can dance down a yellow brick road or travel in The Mystery Machine with Scooby Doo. LEGO Dimensions is the new Toys-To-Life game from Warner Bros Interactive Entertainment and features the biggest brand mash ups the gaming world has ever seen – now including Doctor Who.

This all-new entertainment experience which merges physical LEGO brick building with digital gameplay and launches in the UK on 29th September.

“It’s fitting that Doctor Who now sits alongside some of the most iconic film and TV shows ever made. So go forth and help The Doctor make new friends on his quest to vanquish Lord Vortech!” 

Batman, Gandalf and Wyldstyle will team up with Doctor Who, The Simpsons, Ghostbusters, Jurassic World, Back to the Future and many more fan favourites in a mission to thwart Lord Vortech’s evil plan to collide all dimensions into one. 

Using an interactive LEGO Toy Pad which will plug into games consoles, gamers can place up to seven physical toys into the game through the toy pad. This allows gamers to embark on an adventure which merges the worlds of their favourite TV and film franchises.

The LEGO Dimensions Starter Pack includes three Doctor Who levels, where you can battle the Daleks and Cybermen, complete with a cameo from the Twelfth Doctor. From November you will be able to purchase an additional Doctor Who pack enabling gamers to play as the Doctor. The pack will also introduce new buildable characters, including the TARDIS and K-9, unlocking compelling game content with mission-based levels and unique in-game abilities.
