December 18, 2012

‘Tis the season to be happy, jolly and gay and while you’re busy finding the perfect present for that someone special and in between getting the turkey and all its trimmings ready for the big day, we here at The Doctor Who Project would like to remind you to take a little time for yourself during the holiday season. Amongst all that hustle and bustle you need to take a few moments away, so… pour yourself a nice little drink whether it be a gin and tonic, a hot chocolate, or a nice hot cup of Earl Grey tea; find a quiet little corner in your home; curl up in that nice big comfy chair, and relax. And while you’re taking a few minutes for yourself, it’s the perfect time to reacquaint yourself with the adventures of the Tenth Doctor, Val and Tom from Season 38.

THE MASK OF ANHUR by Robert Mammone

The Mask of Anhur - Tiny

The discovery of a mask in an ancient burial tomb in western Asia unleashes an alien force that could engulf pre-WW2 Europe and the world in a genocidal holocaust. When the Doctor, Val and Tom arrive in Venice in 1938, they stumble across the surviving members of the archaeological team that unearthed the mask. Soon, they are caught up in a wild chase as darkness spreads across the city. Can they survive a night that promises to spread its terrible darkness across the world?

THE VAULT by Miles Reid

The Vault - Tiny

The Vault – A secret Russian installation, dating back to the Second World War. A research facility built deep into a mountain, dedicated to the collection and study of extra-terrestrial technology that crashes behind the Iron Curtain. Even to the Russian Government, it doesn’t exist. Its existence covered up since all contact was lost back in the 1970s. On behalf of an old friend, the Doctor, Tom and Val accompany a U.N.I.T research team to find the Vault and explore it. What they find, deep underground are the remnants of some of the darkest days of the Cold War. Secrets are revealed, crimes are uncovered. Deep in the Vault, there is no way out and they are not alone and not all of their team are to be trusted. Deep in the Vault, something is waking up.

SECOND LIFE by Kyle Bastian

Second Life - Tiny

The Doctor thought he had everything under control. The cell was constructed to his design: quartz-sapphire laser bars, stasis field, time loop – all set up within in a reconstructed sector of the Time Lord’s notorious prison planet of Shada. He thought that would hold her. But he was wrong – Bramahl has escaped and is out for blood. Along with Tom and Val, the Doctor must track down Bramahl, and their only clue is her successor from Section 13 – Tamara Scott. But her life as a companion was erased… wasn’t it? An old friend’s timely return may hold the key.

SPONTANEOUS COMBUSTION by Jez Strickley

Spontaneous Combustion - Tiny

Travelling back to a quiet English backwater at the turn of the twentieth century, the Doctor decides to give Val and Tom a taste of the paranormal when they visit Quarr Manor, the location of a mysterious fire which saw the Georgian mansion burnt to the ground with not a trace of a survivor to be found. With just hours before the infamous fire is due to take place, the time travellers discover a sinister case of spontaneous human combustion in Quarr’s rooftop observatory, sparking fears that a supernatural force is at work. Soon a terrible dilemma faces the trio, as the Doctor begins to realise that Quarr’s fiery visitant is just one of the dreadful effects of a terrible space accident, which threatens to unleash a firestorm across the whole of the British Isles. Battling an anonymous threat which strikes without warning, the Doctor soon discovers that sometimes there is no good decision, as he faces the awful choice of sacrificing the few to save the many.
