Lonely Are The Stars Released December 5

December 4, 2020

THE DOCTOR WHO PROJECT SEASON 42 continues this week with the December 5th release of the season’s fourth story – Lonely Are The Stars by Miles Reid-Lobatto.

The Boundless has ventured to the outer reaches of the solar system to test an experimental space-fold star-drive. But all is not well aboard ship. As the Boundless nears Pluto, her crew are becoming increasingly prone to outbursts of violence and madness. The captain, Julia Cornelius, questions her motives for signing on and wonders if she will make it home to her family. The financier, Buskirk deVan, harbours a secret about their purpose and his achievements. And now a landing party has been gruesomely murdered on the surface of Pluto.

The Doctor and Hannah, here to observe a milestone in the history of space exploration, quickly turn desperate when the TARDIS is plucked from the surface by an apparently deliberate intelligence.

Captain Cornelius turns to the Doctor and Hannah for answers. While Hannah plays a deadly game of cat and mouse with the increasingly desperate crew of the Boundless, the Doctor journeys into Pluto’s icy depths, where a strange idyll has been carved out of pure willpower. In this paradise, he finds a being of limitless power who has endured the death of his race in the hope of visiting Earth. The Doctor is certain that if he does, the entire planet will be consumed by the same lunacy now gripping the explorers. But fighting the will of an angry god may cost even the Doctor his sanity.

SEASON 42: Diversify or Die

November 26, 2020

The third story of Season 42 is out November 28, 2020.

Written by Matthew James and Hamish Crawford, Diversify or Die sees the TARDIS land on 21st Century Earth.

Ted Kenworthy knew he was destined for greatness. Named one of “Britain’s Brightest Teenagers” by the Sheffield Independent, he is now married to Sandra, the love of his life. The only trouble is he can’t get ahead at his factory job, his cutting-edge research is wasted, and he has a feeling that Sandra is drifting away.

Then Ted meets Sam R.T. McNess, a wealthy American executive. McNess sets him up in his own facility, and gives him all the time and resources he needs to carry out his work. Ted’s success won’t just benefit him—his ingenuity might bring an end to warfare! All that, and a baby on the way!

Everything is going so well for Ted. So why is he so full of anger and anxiety? Why does he worry about McNess and his American yes-men? And why, on the day he demonstrates his major breakthrough, have two strangers—the Doctor and Hannah Redfoot—arrived?

SEASON 42: The Piper

November 18, 2020

SEASON 42 continues November 21 with the release of the second story of the season…

THE PIPER
by Matt Tovey

The Doctor and Hannah arrive by accident in the city of Hamelyn, 1184, and are swiftly arrested for offences unknown. Hannah escapes, but the Doctor is hauled before the irascible Gerhard Vaisey, Lord Mayor of Hamelyn, and the death sentence is quickly handed down.

Hannah, meanwhile, enlists the dubious help of Yjen and her gang of adolescent pickpockets, who promise to help her rescue the Doctor…until, that is, she tells them his name. The cave in the mountains has warned them about the Doctor, his crimes beyond counting, his cruelty beyond compare…

There are strange events unfolding in Hamelyn. Rats infest the streets and buildings, leaving the sewers and invisible spots untouched. Children are missing. The smell of citrus fruit hangs heavy in the air, though no such fruit is grown nearby. To top it all off, someone else has arrived in Hamelyn – a strange man, a piper in colourful clothes, who has sworn to rid the city of its rats…for a price.

The Doctor knows exactly where he is, and knows also that he is powerless to prevent the horrors to come. Can he and Hannah escape Hamelyn before they unfold? Or will they be there to watch, as one of the foulest legends of all time is born?

The Piper will be available to download free in PDF format on Saturday November 21.  Each TDWP story can be read on PC, laptop, eReader and tablet.

Season 42 Begins Today!

November 14, 2020

It’s finally here!

A brand new season of Tenth Doctor and Hannah Redfoot adventures!

Season 42 begins right now.

The season begins with the Season Premiere – I.R.L. by Hamish Crawford which sees the The Doctor is happily retired. He always knew he would retire, and he is fairly sure that he’s happy, living in a semi-detached in suburban England. However, the only problem is that the Doctor feels miserable. He is plagued with doubts, depression and ennui. He spends too much time watching TV. He feels the neighbours are judging him. He only has his therapy sessions and a visit from his grandchildren to look forward to. Then, a series of grisly murders rock the neighbourhood. The eccentric tokens left at the scene—a recorder, a question-mark umbrella, a stick of celery, and a pair of sunglasses—jog the Doctor’s memory. Something happened on the Doctor’s last adventure. Something that reaches right back to his childhood. Something that makes him think the adventure isn’t over at all.

I.R.L. is available to download and read free in PDF format which can be read on your PC, laptop, eReader or tablet from the Doctor Who Project website.
