Details for First Set of Eleventh Doctor Books Released

BBC Books have recently confirmed that they plan to release three new books this April based on the adventures of the new Eleventh Doctor and his new companion Amy Pond. And now we have the synopsis for the books, which will each feature The Eleventh Doctor and Amy Pond. The three upcoming books are titled Apollo 23, Night of the Humans and The Forgotten Army, written by Justin Richards, David Llewellyn and Brian Minchin. We are now also aware that BBC Books intend to release a second set of Eleventh Doctor books in July. The second set of books are Adorable Illusion, Nuclear Time and The King’s Dragon.

The following synopsis is for Apollo 23 by Justin Richards:

‘Houston – we have a problem.’

An astronaut in full spacesuit appears out of thin air in a busy shopping centre. Maybe it’s a publicity stunt. A photo shows an immaculately-dressed woman in her best shoes lying dead at the edge of a crater on the dark side of the moon – beside her beloved dog ‘Poochie’. Maybe it’s a hoax. But as the Doctor and Amy find out, these are just minor events in a sinister plan to take over every human being on earth. The plot centres on a secret military base on the moon – that’s where Amy and the TARDIS are. The Doctor is back on Earth, and without the TARDIS there’s no way he can get to the moon to save Amy and defeat the aliens.

Or is there? The Doctor discovers one last great secret that could save humanity: Apollo 23.

The following synopsis is for Night of the Humans by David Llewellyn:

‘‘This is the Gyre – the most hostile environment in the galaxy.’

250,000 years’ worth of junk floating in deep space, home to the shipwrecked Sittuun, the carnivorous Sollogs, and worst of all – the Humans. The Doctor and Amy arrive on this terrifying world in the middle of an all-out frontier war between Sittuun and Humans, and the clock is already ticking. There’s a comet in the sky, and it’s on a collision course with the Gyre...When the Doctor is kidnapped, it’s up to Amy and “galaxy-famous swashbuckler” Dirk Slipstream to save the day.

But who is Slipstream, exactly? And what is he really doing here?

The following synopsis is for The Forgotten Army by Brian Minchin:

‘Let me tell you a story. Long ago, in the frozen Arctic wastes, an alien army landed. Only now, 10,000 years later, it isn’t a story. And the army is ready to attack.’

New York – one of the greatest cities on 21st century Earth. But what’s going on in the Museum? And is that really a Woolly Mammoth rampaging down Broadway? An ordinary day becomes a time of terror, as Ice Age creatures come back to life, and the Doctor and Amy meet a new and deadly enemy. The vicious Army of the Vykoid are armed to the teeth and determined to enslave the human race. Even though they’re only three inches high. With the Doctor kidnapped, and the Vykoid army swarming across Manhattan and sealing it from the world with a powerful alien forcefield, Amy has just 24 hours to find the Doctor and save the city. If she doesn’t, the people of Manhattan will be taken to work in the doomed asteroid mines of the Vykoid home planet.

But as time starts to run out, who can she trust? And how far will she have to go to free New York from the Forgotten Army?

Apollo 23, Night of the Humans and The Forgotten Army will be released on the twenty second of April by BBC Books for £6.99 each. From this date you will be able to purchase The Eleventh Doctor's first set of books around the United Kingdom and Ireland. The covers for these issue are expected sometime within the next few months. The Eleventh Doctor will make his official television premiere in Spring when Doctor Who returns for a fifth series.
