New Novels Revealed!
Click on a pic to enlarge!
BBC Books have revealed the covers of the new Doctor and Rose novels.
The Art Of Destruction, The Nightmare Of Black Island and The Price Of Paradise will all be released on 21st September 2006.
Synopisises below:
The Art Of Destruction
The TARDIS lands in 22nd century Africa in the shadow of a dormant volcano. Agri-teams are growing new foodstuffs in the baking soil to help feed the world's starving millions - but the Doctor and Rose have detected an alien signal somewhere close by. When a nightmare force starts surging along the dark volcanic tunnels, the Doctor realises an ancient trap has been sprung. But who was it meant for? And what is the secret of the eerie statues that stand at the heart of the volcano? Dragged into a centuries-old conflict, Rose and the Doctor are soon elevating survival to an art form - as ancient, alien hands practice arts of destruction all around them...
This work features the Doctor and Rose as played by David Tennant and Billie Piper in the hit series from BBC Television.
The Nightmare Of Black Island
On a lonely stretch of Welsh coastline a fisherman is killed by a hideous creature from beneath the waves. When the Doctor and Rose arrive, they discover a village where the children are plagued by nightmares, and the nights are ruled by monsters. The villagers suspect that ancient industrialist Nathanial Morton is to blame, but the Doctor has suspicions of his own. Who are the ancient figures that sleep in the old priory? What are the monsters that prowl the woods after sunset? What is the light that glows in the disused lighthouse on Black Island? As the children's nightmares get worse, The Doctor and Rose discover an alien plot to resurrect an ancient evil...
This work features the Doctor and Rose as played by David Tennant and Billie Piper in the hit series from BBC Television.
The Price Of Paradise
Laylora - the Paradise Planet. A world of breath-taking beauty, where peace-loving aboriginals live in harmony with their environment. Or do they? The Doctor and Rose arrive to find that the once-perfect eco-system is showing signs of failing. The paradise planet has become a death trap as terrifying creatures from ancient legends appear and stalk the land...Is there a connection between the human explorers who have crash-landed and the savage monsters? What secret lies at the heart of the natives' ancient ceremonies? And what price might one human have to pay to save the only home he has ever known? When a planet itself becomes sick, can there be a cure? The Doctor and Rose find themselves in a race against time to find out...
This title features the Doctor and Rose as played by David Tennant and Billie Piper in the hit series from BBC Television.

Goodbye Rose Tyler...We loved you too!
So it's all over...for now at least.
The Rose and  Doctor partnership is no more, Saturday's end of series finale was a real tear jerker! Oh how we'll miss Rose (Billie Piper), Jackie (Camille Coduri)  and Mickey (Noel Clarke)!
But we have lots to look forward to with series three of Doctor Who.
David Tennant will be returning as The Doctor and will be joined by Freema Agyeman as his new assistant, Martha Jones.
Rumours in the press are already abounding that the pair will battle The Ice Warriors and aliens from Mars! As well as that they will be travelling back in time and meeting amongst others William Shakespeare!
But before that we have the Chistmas Special, The Runaway Bride, with Catherine Tate to look forward to!
Filming has already begun on that and our tears aren't even dry yet!
Don't forget to stay tuned to for all the latest news on life after Who for Billie! Including her new BBC series Ruby In The Smoke and her ITV project Mansfield Park!
So all that's left to say is:
Goodbye Billie, Camille and Noel you were all fantastic!
