    Synopsis This title was released in December 2016. It will be exclusively available to buy from the BF website until January 31st 2017, and on general sale after this date. It's the telegram Constance never wanted to read: DEEPLY REGRET TO INFORM YOU LT-CMDR H CLARKE LOST IN ACTION. CLASSIFIED OPERATIONS. Those classified operations concerned a top-secret military project code-named 'Quicksilver'. A project based in Vienna. A project with alien connections. But bombed-out Vienna is not what it was before the war - with its Strauss music, its glamour and easy charm. It's not the time nor the place for a happy reunion. As Constance Clarke is about to discover... And as the Doctor is about to discover, too!

    Space Helmet for a Cow Volume 2 - 1999 to 2013 IN A NUTSHELL A wry and honest look at the real life madness that surrounded the making of the greatest television show in the world. REVIEW Anyone who bought Volume One of Space Helmet for a Cow will be buying Volume Two, this might seem like a broad statement but even after a cursory glance at Volume Two, it's clear that this celebration of the history of "New Who" (1999 onwards) is something worth shelling out those hard earned Grotzit for. This new volume covers a considerably shorter period than the first but still manages to cram its hefty page count with the same high standard of witt and critical commentary that went into the first. It is an extremely joyous trip down memory lane for those of us who experienced the resurgence of the new series from the ashes of old. Every page oozes with the sort of acerbic prose that many reviewers dream of, while taking care not to crossing the line into purely negative territory. Not only is it hilarious but it is deeply comprehensive and will act as a gentle reminder for all of those weird and outlandish moments that abound around Doctor Who production and the universe that we are part of. The book answers many questions that we simply didn't know we were asking. Such as "Did Benny and Bjorn from ABBA really plan a Torchwood musical called Weevil Rock You?" or "Which Doctors shared a bed?" and the slightly more believable "How did David Tennant become his own Father in law?" It is clear that this was a labour of love, it lets us see Doctor Who as it really is - a TV programme that is as haphazard in nature as any other in modern television and it is celebrated here in all of its glory. I would recommend that you don't get this for Christmas because your family will lose you for the entire day and become annoyed at your constant chuckling. INSERT ITEM INFO. End of review

    Two thousand years ago, all civilisation on the planet Teymah was wiped out in an AELE - an Anomalous Extinction Level Event. Now, the galactic entrepreneur Lyam Yce hopes, at last, to learn the reason why the ancient Teymahrians went extinct - by funding a huge archaeological dig. While the Doctor probes a strange sphere found by Yce's diggers, his companion, former Bletchley Park cryptographer Constance Clarke, agrees to help translate symbols written in the lost ancient language of the Teymahrians. And soon, they'll learn that ancient Teymah's secrets were best left buried deep beneath its shifting sands...

    "The Return of Doctor Mysterio" is an episode of the British science fiction television series Doctor Who. First broadcast on BBC One on 25 December 2016, it is the twelfth Christmas special since the show's revival in 2005. It is written by Steven Moffat and directed by Ed Bazalgette. The episode stars Peter Capaldi as the Twelfth Doctor and Matt Lucas as Nardole, the latter reprising his role from the preceding episode, "The Husbands of River Song". The episode is set in New York City, and involves the Doctor and Nardole linking with journalist Lucy Fletcher (Charity Wakefield) and a superhero called The Ghost (Justin Chatwin) to combat brain-swapping aliens. The episode received generally positive reviews from critics.

Taking the boy to the rooftop, the Doctor reveals he accidentally set off a trap for a device he was building, and enlists him to help complete it. However Grant mistakenly swallows a wish-granting gemstone needed for the device, believing it to be medicine, effectively being granted his wish to be a superhero. Abandoning the device, the Doctor makes Grant promise to not use his new superpowers before he leaves. Returning to New York in 2016 with Nardole, whom he rebuilt from Hydroflax's body, the Doctor conducts an investigation into Harmony Shoals, a multinational research company, discovering a news reporter named Lucy Fletcher performing a similar investigation. The group discover that it is being secretly run by a group of living alien brains that transplant themselves into any living creature they need for their plans, killing the company's owner, Mr Brock, for his body. Tracked down by Dr Sims, an employee the brains already took over, the group suddenly are rescued by a masked superhero named the Ghost, who transports Lucy close to her home. Returning to her apartment before her, Ghost transforms back into Grant, who works for Lucy as a nanny, only to be shocked to find the Doctor and Nardole waiting for him, having tracked him down via the gemstone fused to him. When Lucy returns and sees the Time Lord, the Doctor reveals to her that the alien brains colonise planets by taking control of their prominent leaders, with Earth being their next target. Leaving Lucy to prepare for an interview with Grant's alter ego, the Doctor and Nardole track down the alien's ship in a low orbit and board it via the TARDIS. On board, they discover that the ship's reactor is in a critical state, and realise from Dr Sims that he intends to drop it on New York. Remembering an observation made by Nardole, the Doctor realises the city would be vaporised except for the Harmony Shoals building, and that the world leaders would take shelter in the company's other buildings within each capital city on the belief that Earth was under attack, effectively allowing the brains to take them over. After Dr Sims lets slip the ship is to be dropped at a designated time, the Doctor reprogrammes it to begin descending ahead of schedule. Attending his interview, Grant and Lucy become captured by the brains who intend to transplant themselves into Ghost's body. Breaking free and secretly returning as himself, Grant picks up a message from the Doctor requesting his help to stop the alien's ship from crashing into the city after being unable to change its course during its descent. Revealing himself as the Ghost to Lucy in stopping the ship on the rooftop, Grant finally manages to win her over and takes her in tow as he disposes of the ship, while the Doctor alerts UNIT, who subsequently shut down Harmony Shoals, unaware that the alien brain in Dr Sims has escaped within one of their soldiers. Back at Lucy's apartment, Grant informs the Doctor he will no longer use his powers, though as the Time Lord leaves, Lucy asks him why he is sad. Not giving a straight answer as he leaves, Nardole reveals he is still mourning the loss of River Song but will hopefully recover, leaving with the Doctor to aid him further. Continuity[edit] At the beginning of the episode, the Doctor is constructing a device to reverse the paradoxes created during his previous visit in "The Angels Take Manhattan".[1][2] The Doctor mentions that he usually gets "an invasion" every Christmas, a reference to the different invasions of Earth taking place during most Doctor Who Christmas specials.[3] The unnamed brain-swapping aliens last appeared in the 2015 Christmas special "The Husbands of River Song", where they were servants of King Hydroflax. Their main agent, Scratch, stated that they represented "the Shoal of the Winter Harmony."[2] The Doctor tells Lucy that he works for Scotland Yard, which he also did in "The Woman Who Lived". Previously, the Tenth Doctor told the guests at Lady Eddison's manor he was a chief inspector from Scotland Yard in "The Unicorn and the Wasp, while the Eleventh Doctor told President Richard Nixon he was an undercover operative from Scotland Yard (code-named "The Doctor") in "The Impossible Astronaut".[2] A movie theater across from Lucy's apartment features a film called The Mind of Evil, the name of a Third Doctor serial.[4] Nardole mentions that the Doctor cut him out of Hydroflax's body, referring to off-screen events following the "The Husbands of River Song" where he was decapitated and his head was placed inside the artificially intelligent robotic body of King Hydroflax.[5] When the Doctor complains that Grant promised him never to use his powers, Nardole brings up the Time Lord policy of never interfering with other peoples or cultures, first mentioned in the Second Doctor serial The War Games.[4] When clearing out the headquarters of Harmony Shoal, a UNIT officer prepares to contact Osgood, referring to Petronella Osgood who previously appeared in "The Day of the Doctor", "Death in Heaven" and "The Zygon Invasion" / "The Zygon Inversion".[3] Both the Doctor and Nardole refer to the final 24-year night the Doctor spent with River Song ("The Husbands of River Song") and her eventual death in the Library ("Forest of the Dead").[2] Outside references[edit] The character of "The Ghost" is a pastiche of the comic book superhero Superman, with several references to the character being made throughout the special: Superman's creators, Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster, are referenced when Mr Brock suggests to the gathered reports to direct further questions to ""Miss Shuster and Ms. Siegel".[6] Grant has roughly the same standard powers of Superman, including flight, super-strength, super-speed, being bulletproof, and possessing X-ray vision,[7] along with other unconventional powers.[1][7] He gains his power from a stellar-powered object (a gemstone made from a star, in the episode), much as Superman gains his from Earth's yellow sun.[1][7] The Harmony Shoals building in New York featured in the episode has a large globe on top of it, making it resemble the Daily Planet building, a major setting of Superman stories.[1] Grant prefers being called "mild-mannered", as Superman's alter ego is often characterized. He also follows the same moral code as Superman when operating as the Ghost,[7] and transforms in a similar fashion by tearing open his shirt to reveal his superhero costume underneath.[1] The special features a number of elements that mimic those from Richard Donner's Superman: The Movie. One scene involves the Ghost voicing his hope that Lucy's close call at Harmony Shoal hasn't put her off journalism, paralleling the same scene in the film in which Superman hopes Lois is not put off from flying after he rescues her from falling out of a helicopter.[7] Lucy also conducts a rooftop interview with the Ghost reminiscent of Lois' interview with Superman in the film.[8] Lucy Fletcher is named after Lois Lane's sister Lucy.[1] Her character is similar to Lois' in that she does not realize that her old high school friend and current nanny is the superhero Ghost.[5] The initials "L.L." used by several characters of the Superman comics (Lois Lane, Lana Lang, Lex Luthor, Linda Lee) is used in Lucy's married name: Lucy Lombard.[1] Several characters from Marvel Comics line the walls of the young Grant's bedroom.[1] The Doctor questions Spider-Man's unusual origin of being bitten by a radioactive spider; he opines that radiation poisoning would be the likely result.[1] A "Joe's Pizza" is shown within the city, which is where Peter Parker worked at briefly in the movie Spider-Man 2.[2] The Doctor counsels Grant that "with great power comes great responsibility," an adage associated with Spider-Man.[7] Batman is briefly referenced after the Ghost drops Lucy off at her apartment building. When the baby monitor he is carrying goes off, Lucy mistakes it for a signal device and asks if the Bat-Signal is now an app.[1] The Doctor uses the viral mobile game Pokemon Go to create a distraction at Harmony Shoal's Tokyo headquarters.[9][10] Promotion[edit] The episode was revealed and the first trailer was shown at the 2016 New York Comic Con on 7 October 2016.[11] A preview clip was shown as part of the Children in Need broadcast on 18 November 2016.[12] Broadcast[edit] Cinemas[edit] The episode will receive cinema screenings in Australia and New Zealand on 26 December 2016,[13][14] in Canada on 26 and 28 December 2016,[15] and in the United States on 27 and 29 December 2016.[16] Reception[edit] The episode had an official rating of 7.83 million viewers in the UK, making it the 6th most watched show on Christmas Day 2016.[17] The overnight rating was 5.68 million, a share of 27.1% of the total TV audience.[18] The episode received an Appreciation Index score of 82.[19] It also received 1.7 million viewers on BBCA, was BBC America's top telecast of the year across all key demographics, and was the most talked about Christmas day television program on Facebook and Twitter.[20] Critical reception[edit] The Telegraph gave a positive review of five out of five stars and summarized that the episode was "a romp with a classic feel and cross-generational appeal".[9] Andrew Billen writing in The Times gave the programme four stars out of a possible five. Billen said that Capaldi was at his warmest and that Nardole (Matt Lucas) "added panto brio to an already exuberant episode".[21] The Guardian gave a positive review of The Return of Doctor Mysterio saying "Capaldi takes Manhattan!" ... "Cosmic baddies are inserting alien brains into world leaders' heads in the Christmas special. It's timely, top-of-the-tree fun - and Peter Capaldi and Matt Lucas are a pantomime treat".[22] IGN said ""The Return of Doctor Mysterio" is a pretty lightweight entry in the Twelfth Doctor's oeuvre, which considering the events of last season isn't necessarily a bad thing. But the different elements of the episode don't come together as smoothly as they could, and the emotional through line for the Doctor is treated mostly as an afterthought" but gave it 7/10.[23] A.V. Club gave a mixed review saying that "Doctor Who takes a jolly detour to superhero goofiness".[24]

    Synopsis It begins with just a few people falling ill. Another flu virus that spreads around the globe. And then the reports begin that people are dying... When most of the world's population is wiped out, a handful of survivors are left to pick up the pieces. Cities become graveyards. Technology becomes largely obsolete. Mankind must start again. But viruses are survivors too... 5.1 The Second Coming by Andrew Smith Millions died when the plague swept the globe. Such a thing couldn't possibly happen again - or could it? When Abby Grant and Evelyn Piper both arrive at Carol Baker's Maythorne community, a chain of events is set in motion that could unleash a new wave of death across the country. 5.2 New Blood by Christopher Hatherall Danger surrounds Whitecross when a simple border dispute exposes deadly tensions between those who live side by side. Greg Preston and Jenny Richards soon find themselves fighting for their lives, as people in the grip of a terrible new fear turn to the old ways to protect themselves... 5.3 Angel of Death by Simon Clark Emerging from a quarantined Whitecross, Greg and Jenny discover that the danger they glimpsed at Springton is far from over. Meanwhile, as isolated communities find themselves exposed to a disease they know nothing about, Abby joins a desperate race to save lives. 5.4 Come the Horsemen by Andrew Smith In times of crisis, rumour and fear run rife across the decimated landscape of Britain. Evelyn and Abby experience the lethal effects of this panic first hand. At such times the worst of humanity is exposed. Can Greg and Jenny find the best in those around them? Or is there no way to avoid the coming of the horsemen? NOTE: Survivors contains adult material and is not suitable for younger listeners.

Decades after their defeat by the Eleventh Doctor, the Silence prepare to rise against humanity.... 1. House of Silents There is no record of the presence of an alien species known as 'The Silents' on Earth. UNIT has never engaged hostiles capable of editing themselves from observers' memories. There is no evidence that such an opponent, if real, is regrouping and beginning a new plan of infiltration and manipulation. Kate Stewart and her team are in no mortal danger. How can they be, when they don't even know the enemy exists? 2. Square One It's business as usual at UNIT, and thankfully, Kate Stewart has no immediate threats to concern her. Or so she believes. But when Sam Bishop returns from leave, he notices things aren't quite as they seem. Soon he and Osgood are on the trail of an elusive enemy. Meanwhile, Kenneth LeBlanc and his controversial political movement gather momentum, and one UNIT team member isn't quite themselves... 3. Silent Majority Kenneth LeBlanc looks set to lead his party to national victory, overturning political opinion and taking the polls by storm. UNIT can only stand and watch as a silent revolution takes place. But who are LeBlanc's real backers? And what use to them is the triumph of a leader who seems to be nothing more than a liability? The Silents are about to make the headlines. 4. In Memory Alone When Sam Bishop and Osgood visit an orbiting space station for a routine mission, they have no idea that they are part of an alien scheme, years in the planning. As the global situation spins out of control, Kate seeks help from an unlikely source.

    Direct Podcast Download

    This title was released in October 2016. It will be exclusively available to buy from the BF website until December 31st 2016, and on general sale after this date The Time War between Daleks and Time Lords rages across the history of the cosmos. Nowhere is safe. Worlds are ravaged by battles beyond their understanding, but certain other races hunger to fight in the ultimate conflict. When Earth comes under threat, the War Doctor is drawn into Ollistra's schemes once again. But the wily Time Lord Cardinal has not foreseen every move. The Dalek Time Strategist has its own game-pieces in play, and when volatile forces with their own agenda join the fray, no-one can predict how the war might turn... 3.1 The Shadow Vortex by David Llewellyn Cardinal Ollistra exploits the War Doctor's affection for Earth to send him to East Berlin, 1961, on the trail of a Dalek agent. Lara Zannis has breached the planet's quantum shield on a very special mission for the Dalek Time Strategist. Caught between MI6 and the KGB, the War Doctor must first escape the Stasi before he can hope to stop Lara. Cold War scientists are about to make a breakthrough - the Daleks want control of the 'Shadow Vortex', and Agent Zannis can provide it. 3.2 The Eternity Cage by Andrew Smith Sontarans are the ultimate warriors - so they believe - and the Time War the ultimate conflict. Denied that glory by Skaro and Gallifrey alike, General Fesk of the Eighth Sontaran Battle Fleet employs a dangerous strategy to draw both sides to the planet Rovidia and prove his forces worthy... Meanwhile, the War Doctor leads a rescue mission, aided by Rovidian street-urchin Kalan. Neither Daleks nor Time Lords expect the Sontarans to be so fearsome a foe, until they uncover the secret of the Eternity Cage. 3.3 Eye of Harmony by Ken Bentley In the aftermath of events on Rovidia, the Dalek Time Strategist is presented with a unique opportunity to strike a lethal blow to the heart of Gallifrey. A devastating power is set to be unleashed, and with agents in place ready to do the bidding of the Dalek Time Strategist, the future of the Time War could turn in an instant. Trapped inside a critically-damaged Battle-TARDIS, hopelessly adrift in the Time Vortex, the War Doctor and his allies have a final desperate fight on their hands...

    This title was released in September 2016. It will be exclusively available to buy from the BF website until October 31st 2016, and on general sale after this date 3.1 Absent Friends by John Dorney Earth. The late 20th century. Across the world, the mobile phone is gaining popularity as more and more people decide to join the digital age. But for the residents of a sleepy English town sitting in the shade of a new transmission mast, that ubiquity has a troubling cost. When the TARDIS veers off-course, the Doctor and his companions find themselves in the middle of a mystery. Sometimes the past comes back to haunt you. And sometimes the future does as well. 3.2 The Eighth Piece by Matt Fitton 15th Century Prague: in the castle dungeons, a prisoner raves about the end of the world. Outside, Liv Chenka seeks out the workshop of a strange Clockmaker to see what he is creating. England, 1538: Lord Thomas Cromwell finds his duties interrupted by otherworldly forces - clockwork soldiers, an unusual nun, and a mysterious scholar calling himself 'the Doctor'. Perhaps the truth can be extracted in the torture chamber of London's Bloody Tower? Rome, 2016: Helen Sinclair has an appointment with an enigmatic Professor, whose greatest work is almost complete. Only the Eighth Piece is missing... 3.3 The Doomsday Chronometer by Matt Fitton While River Song takes Helen on an archaeological expedition like no other, the Doctor finds himself enlisted by an alien Queen to save her people. Trapped and alone, Liv stares death in the face as she meets the enemy who's been dogging the TARDIS travellers' footsteps throughout Earth's history. The Doomsday Chronometer has been protected for five centuries: secret cults and societies jealously guarding its mystery. But what is their real purpose? The Doctor is about to discover the truth... 3.4. The Crucible of Souls by John Dorney The date has been set. The trap has been sprung. A life has been taken and a maniac is on the loose. With the TARDIS crew separated and in terrible trouble, will today be the day the bad guys win? Spoilers...

    Philip Hinchcliffe, acclaimed producer of Doctor Who (1975-77) returns to tell new stories for the Fourth Doctor and Leela. The TARDIS has landed on a human colony world. In the city, where the inhabitants rely on advanced technology to create their children, a marriage is due to take place. But not everyone supports it, and a crash might just prevent it for good. In the commune outside live the savages, shunned and detested by the city folk. But they have recently been visited by a man, charismatic and handsome, who may yet be their saviour - or their doom. Two different sides, ready for conflict. But neither realises that a third force threatens their very existence...

    The Federation sends out twenty pursuit ships to hunt Blake down and destroy him, but the Liberator withstands the assault and manages to get away. Blake then receives a message from his nemesis Travis who has escaped the Federation and taken Blake's cousin Inga whom he holds hostage on the planet Exbar. Travis makes the peculiar request to join up with Blake's crew since Servalan has made him a wanted criminal, but Blake believes it to be a ruse. He teleports down to the planet to rescue Inga, and meanwhile, unknown to Blake, Avon sends a message to Servalan with Travis' location. Concerned about Blake, Avon also teleports to the planet and later Vila joins him. The three are eventually rounded up by Travis, and his gang of "crimos," (criminal psychopaths), and Travis reveals his intention to take the Liberator after he kills them. Inga and her father Ushton manage to trick Travis and release Blake and his team, who eventually leave Travis to be found by Servalan. When Servalan arrives, she agrees to spare Travis' life, and officially list him as dead, as long as he continues to hunt Blake for her. Guest Stars: John Abineri (as Ushton), Judy Buxton (as Inga), Kevin Stoney (as Joban), James Coyle (as Molok), Andrew Robertson (as Space Commander),
