    Reunited with the Doctor and Nyssa, Tegan joins them on a trip to Amsterdam's Rijkmuseum to see a new exhibition of the work of Rembrandt van Rijn, featuring his drawings of "Vessels of the Stars". The Doctor is astonished to discover that they are designs for spaceships that would actually work, and decides to pop back to the Dutch Golden Age for a quiet word with Rembrandt - but the world-weary artist is no mood to help. Meanwhile, strange forces are swirling in the canals, creatures from ancient myth, the watery, goblin-like Nix. What is their connection to the mysterious Countess Mach-Teldak - and to the events of Tegan's life during her year away from the Doctor?

    Win City of Death - Paperback @tindogpodcast interviews @Gossjam James Goss (producer) From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia James Goss (born 1974) is an English writer and producer, known both for his work in cult TV spin-off media, including tie-in novels and audio stories for Doctor Who and Torchwood, and for his fictional works beyond ready made universes. Contents [hide] 1Doctor Who 1.1Online content 1.2Television, radio and DVD 1.3Books 2Theatre 3Other work 4Selected bibliography 5External links 6References Doctor Who[edit] Online content[edit] In 2000, Goss was made a BBC senior content producer and put in charge of the BBC's official Doctor Who website. Originally the site was part of the BBC's Cult TV website. Goss slowly expanded the content to include Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Farscape, The Simpsons, 24 and Doctor Who. He was subsequently voted Number 19 in TV Cream's 2004 poll of Top 50 Media Movers and Shakers.[1] With the return of Doctor Who in 2005, the Cult site was slowly wound down in order to concentrate solely on the show. Goss moved to BBC Wales to oversee the production of the new show's web site, expanding the contents to include cast and crew interviews, games and spin-off sites based on the broadcast episodes. His aim was to construct a whole world beyond the show that viewers could get further involved in, notably employing graphic designer Lee Binding for front pages and site design, and writer Joseph Lidster for the spin-off sites' fictional content. Sequence, a Cardiff-based design agency, were also responsible for all of the 2006 Doctor Who series games, experiences and many of the associated websites. Goss also produced the video clip "krill-loop" for a tie-in website. Television, radio and DVD[edit] Having produced previous Doctor Who web only animations (such as Scream of the Shalka)[2] and Shada,[3] in 2005 Goss produced the animations of two missing episodes of the The Invasion.

His first book, Almost Perfect, a tie-in to the Doctor Who spin-off series Torchwood, was released in October 2008 and was followed by two more Torchwoodnovels and Bad Blood, a novel based on the TV series Being Human. Goss's Dead Air, read by David Tennant, was voted 2010 Audiobook Of The Year.[6] His Eleventh Doctor audiobook The Hounds of Artemis was given away free with a February 2011 issue of The Guardian. It is read by Matt Smith and Clare Corbett. His books Dead of Winter (Doctor Who) and First Born (Torchwood) were both nominated for the 2012 British Fantasy Society Awards.

In 2006 it won "Best Adaptation" in the 28th LA Weekly Theater Awards.[8] He wrote the play 7 Spies At The Casino about the making of the 1967 film Casino Royale, which was performed at theEdinburgh Festival Fringe in August 2007.[9] James Goss has also written a play about the true story of the "terribly nice friendship" between Mr Peter Cushing and SirChristopher Lee, forged during their Hammer Horror careers (see Hammer Film Productions).

    A modulated frequency wave cancellation signal isn't something that the Doctor and Romana expect to detect in 1960s London. But then they don't expect to find Professor Lanchester, the man who invented it, lying unconscious. Or MI5 investigating. With the help of MI5 Agent Miller, Lanchester's daughter Jill, and his nephew a pirate radio DJ called Mark, the Doctor, Romana and K-9 investigate. They soon discover that there is more at risk than they imagined, and an alien invasion is about to begin. Can the Doctor identify and defeat the aliens in time? Will Romana manage to find a recombinant transducer before it's too late? And how will K-9 cope with his new job?

    'A very very good box set... Alex Kingston gives River her all... more layers to her character... 9/10 Sweetie.' Planet Mondas 1.1 The Boundless Sea by Jenny T Colgan River Song has had more than enough excitement for a while. Deciding the universe - and her husband - can look after themselves, she has immersed herself in early 20th century academia, absorbed in writing archaeological theses. But when a mysterious tomb is found in a dry, distant land, excitement comes looking for River. Can Professor Song stop any more members of the expedition from dying? What deadly secrets lie buried within the crypt? And will British Consul Bertie Potts prove to be a help, or a hindrance? 1.2 I Went to a Marvellous Party by Justin Richards River Song always enjoys a good party, even when she's not entirely sure where or when the party is taking place. But the party she ends up at is one where not everything - or indeed everyone - is what it seems... Being River, it doesn't take her too long to go exploring, and it doesn't take her too long to get into trouble. The sort of trouble that involves manipulating other civilisations, exploitation, and of course murder. River is confident she can find the killer. But can she identify them before anyone else - or quite possibly everyone else - gets killed? 1.3 Signs by James Goss River Song is on the trail of the mysterious, planet-killing SporeShips. Nobody knows where they come from. Nobody knows why they are here. All they do know is that wherever the SporeShips appear, whole civilisations are reduced to mulch. But River has help. Her companion is a handsome time-travelling stranger, someone with specialist knowledge of the oddities and dangers the universe has to offer. For Mr Song has a connection to River's future, and he would never want his wife to face those perils alone... 1.4 The Rulers of the Universe by Matt Fitton As shocking secrets are exposed, and a grand plan for the universe is revealed, River decides it's time she took control of events once and for all. Out in deep space, a clandestine society faces off with an ancient and powerful alien force - but, for River, there's an added complication. The Eighth Doctor has been caught in the middle, and she must make sure her future husband can arrive at his own destiny with all his memories - not to mention his lives - intact...

    Based on the classic ITV series. A limited edition of 3000 numbered box sets. 'A new imagining of The Prisoner, keeping true to the original concept, but bringing it up to date, even futuristic. Wonderful and compulsive listening.' Six of One (The Official Prisoner Appreciation Society) 'An enjoyable, quirky, fun, and entertaining re-imagining of the series... It feels in tune with the original series, but is different enough to be original at the same time.' The Unmutual (The Prisoner news website) 'I'm not a number. I'm a free man!' January 16th, 1967... A secret agent resigns, then wakes up to find himself imprisoned in 'The Village' -- a bizarre community with a cheery veneer, but an underbelly of mystery and threat. All occupants of The Village have numbers instead of names, with our secret agent forced to accept the mantel of Number Six. The authorities running this Village are intent on discovering why Number Six resigned -- but it's a secret he steadfastly refuses to divulge. As the drama unfolds, the authorities, in the guise of the sinister Number Two, try ever more ingenious and aggressive means to bend Number Six to their will. All the while, Number Six is intent on two aims: to escape and to find out 'Who is Number One?'. Episode One: Departure and Arrival A failed meeting in Belgium catalyses Agent ZM-73 to resign from his top secret post, but when he wakes the following morning everything has changed -- even his name. Trapped in a bizarre coastal village, and with his every move monitored by the mysterious Number Two, the man now known as Number Six struggles to make sense of it all. Episode Two: The Schizoid Man Six finds himself fascinated by a strange bond which has suddenly developed between himself and Number Nine. But the next morning, Six wakes to find himself changed. A moustache, different hair, and... a new name. Number Twelve. Episode Three: Your Beautiful Village Something is very wrong, as Six experiences the most disturbing sense deprivation. Almost complete darkness, filled with haunting sounds, fragments of conversations, and a desperate call from Nine start to test his reason. Episode Four: The Chimes of Big Ben A new prisoner arrives in The Village. The woman is strong-minded, independent, and refuses to accept her new number -- Eight. She is not a number, she is Nadia. And Six is convinced that she is his ticket out of The Village. This set contains four episodes (two 78-minute, feature-length and two hour-long episodes), a Behind-the-Scenes audio documentary, and a lavish colour booklet.

Wonderful and compulsive listening.' Six of One (The Official Prisoner Appreciation Society) 'An enjoyable, quirky, fun, and entertaining re-imagining of the series... It feels in tune with the original series, but is different enough to be original at the same time.' The Unmutual (The Prisoner news website) 'I'm not a number. I'm a free man!' January 16th, 1967... A secret agent resigns, then wakes up to find himself imprisoned in 'The Village' -- a bizarre community with a cheery veneer, but an underbelly of mystery and threat. All occupants of The Village have numbers instead of names, with our secret agent forced to accept the mantel of Number Six. The authorities running this Village are intent on discovering why Number Six resigned -- but it's a secret he steadfastly refuses to divulge. As the drama unfolds, the authorities, in the guise of the sinister Number Two, try ever more ingenious and aggressive means to bend Number Six to their will. All the while, Number Six is intent on two aims: to escape and to find out 'Who is Number One?'. Episode One: Departure and Arrival A failed meeting in Belgium catalyses Agent ZM-73 to resign from his top secret post, but when he wakes the following morning everything has changed -- even his name. Trapped in a bizarre coastal village, and with his every move monitored by the mysterious Number Two, the man now known as Number Six struggles to make sense of it all. Episode Two: The Schizoid Man Six finds himself fascinated by a strange bond which has suddenly developed between himself and Number Nine. But the next morning, Six wakes to find himself changed. A moustache, different hair, and... a new name. Number Twelve. Episode Three: Your Beautiful Village Something is very wrong, as Six experiences the most disturbing sense deprivation. Almost complete darkness, filled with haunting sounds, fragments of conversations, and a desperate call from Nine start to test his reason. Episode Four: The Chimes of Big Ben A new prisoner arrives in The Village. The woman is strong-minded, independent, and refuses to accept her new number -- Eight. She is not a number, she is Nadia. And Six is convinced that she is his ticket out of The Village. This set contains four episodes (two 78-minute, feature-length and two hour-long episodes), a Behind-the-Scenes audio documentary, and a lavish colour booklet.

    THE WAR DOCTOR VOLUME 01: ONLY THE MONSTROUS review Three new battles for The War Doctor 1.1 The Innocent As the Daleks mass their time fleet for a final assault on Gallifrey, something ancient is waiting for them at Omega One. And a sacrifice must be made. Arch-manipulator and Time Lord strategist, Cardinal Ollistra receives shock news of the Doctor's death. Meanwhile, on the planet Keska, a parochial war has returned to plague a peaceful civilisation after decades of tranquillity. But how can such a war have any connection with the great Time War which, at any one moment in the whole of eternity, could threaten to tear the universe apart? If only the Doctor were still alive. 1.2 The Thousand Worlds With the high-ranking Time Lord Seratrix behind enemy lines, the War Doctor finds himself assigned to a rescue mission. But any room for manoeuvre is severely restricted by an area of space known as the Null Zone. Times have changed on Keska, and a countdown to destruction is beginning. But who are the Taalyens and what is their part in the great and terrifying Dalek plan? 1.3 The Heart of the Battle Trapped in a citadel swarming with Daleks, the Time Lord rescue force must find a way to overcome insurmountable odds. With the Daleks apparently planning to rule the Null Zone, perhaps their thirst for universal conquest and victory has been quenched... The War Doctor doesn't believe so -- but how can he prove it without destroying any chance of peace? As the countdown to the destruction of Keska proceeds, a deadly choice must be made... A choice that will define this Doctor, and perhaps forever cast him in the role of 'monster'.

    In a Nevada diner, the Doctor encounters a waitress physically identical to Clara, and begins to tell her a "story" about Clara; neither appears to recognize the other. In Gallifrey, Rassilon attempts to have the Doctor imprisoned and executed. The Time Lord military instead pledges its loyalty to the Doctor. The Doctor has the Time Lords use an extraction chamber to retrieve Clara from her timeline at the instant of her death. The Doctor takes Clara and a TARDIS and escapes Gallifrey, attempting to take her far away enough that she will return fully to life. At the end of the universe, the Doctor encounters Ashildr; the two conclude the Hybrid is the Doctor and Clara together. The Doctor decides to remove Clara's memories of him, but Clara alters the device so it will randomly affect one of them, which ends up being the Doctor. In the present, the Doctor concludes his story, who encourages him to keep going. In the back room is Ashildr and the TARDIS console. It departs, leaving the Doctor with his own TARDIS. Clara decides to eventually return to Gallifrey, and instead sets off with Ashildr to explore the universe.
