TDP 288: Ahistory: An Unauthorized History of Doctor Who [Third Edition]

The Third Edition of AHistory amends and vastly expands the work of the sold-out Second Edition, continuing to incorporate the whole of Doctor Who into a single timeline. All told, this book takes nearly 1400 full-length Doctor Who stories and dates them in a single chronology — starting with the Universe’s origins and working its way forward to the end of time.

Specifically, this Third Edition covers all Doctor Who TV episodes through Series 6 starring Matt Smith; all New Series Adventures up through The Silent Stars Go By (#50); the Big Finish audio range up through Army of Death (#155); all Torchwood episodes, novels and comics up through Series 4 (Miracle Day); all The Sarah Jane Adventures episodes, audios and webcomics up through Series 5; the K9 TV show; all Telos novellas; the IDW and Doctor Who Magazine comics; and a cornucopia of other Doctor Who spin-off series (the Bernice Summerfield novels and audios, Dalek Empire, Iris Wildthyme, Faction Paradox and more).

This book retails for $49.95, and is offered for sale off the Mad Norwegian website for $39.95 (shipping included) in the United States; international shipping rates vary.

TDP 286: Chicks Unravel Time

The sister book to the 2011 Hugo Award-winning Chicks Dig Time Lords

In Chicks Unravel Time, Deborah Stanish (Whedonistas) and L.M. Myles bring together a host of award-winning female writers, media professionals and scientists to examine each season of new and classic Doctor Who from their unique perspectives.

Diana Gabaldon discusses how Jamie McCrimmon inspired her best-selling Outlander series, and Barbara Hambly (Benjamin January Mysteries) examines the delicate balance of rebooting a TV show. Seanan McGuire (Toby Daye series) reveals the power and pain of waiting in Series 5, and Una McCormack (The King’s Dragon) argues that Sylvester McCoy’s final year of Doctor Who is the show’s best season ever.

Other contributors include Juliet McKenna (Einarrin series), Tansy Rayner Roberts (Power and Majesty), Sarah Lotz (The Mall), Martha Wells (The Cloud Roads), Joan Frances Turner (Dust), Rachel Swirsky (“Fields of Gold”), Aliette de Bodard (Obsidian and Blood series) and Amal El-Mohtar (The Honey Month).

TDP 285: Voyage to Venus - Big Finish

Synopsis

Professor Litefoot and Henry Gordon Jago are accustomed to the murky fog of Victorian London and the palatable pints of half and half at the Red Tavern. They are not used to travelling through time and space with their old friend the Doctor.

And now they fined themselves whisked off to the planet Venus in the distant future, at a time when warrior women rule from a floating city in the clouds. There’s a mystery here, one that the Grand Empress Vulpina intends to keep secret. Even if it means destroying these visitors from the long-dead planet Earth...

Written By: Jonathan Morris
Directed By: Ken Bentley

Cast

Colin Baker (The Doctor), Christopher Benjamin (Henry Gordon Jago), Trevor Baxter (Professor George Litefoot), Juliet Aubrey (Vulpina), Catherine Harvey (Felina), Charlie Norfolk (Ursina), Hugh Ross (Vepaja)

Issue 12 - OUT NOW!!!

After such a short run of Doctor Who this year, you'd think we won't have much to badger on about? Well, sadly, you'll be wrong, as here we present the biggest issue of the fanzine yet, weighing in at an unprecedented 56 pages!  It's so big, we've had offers from Celebrity Fit Club (lets face it - we're probably more famous than half of those people in the jungle with Colin Baker at the moment. And fatter)  If you're a fan of reading actual words, then this is the issue for you!  Due to the cost of producing these novels, we've only got a very limited run, so any support we get (i.e. if you buy one) will be greatly appreciated .

Here is a list of the following stuff you will find in the latest issue:

  • Reviews of Series 7.1 (or whatever you call it)
  • Mary Tamm - The Key To The Key To Time
  • The Doctor and The Ripper - what links The Doctor with Whitechapel's mysterious murderer?
  • Cyberman No3 - A brand new comic from the pen of the marvelous Mike Pearse
  • To Those We Never Had - A (somewhat vindictive) look at companions who should have been
  • Interview with Whostrology authour Michael M. Gilroy-Sinclair
  • Plus much, much more!

If you would like to order one of our finely-prouduced propaganda you can do so by sending one of the following payments to us via PayPal (please send payment as 'a gift' and enclose your name and address) to fishcustardfanzine@googlemail.com

UK: £2.20
Rest of The World: £4.20

If you don't have a PayPal account, then you can pay by other means via our brand-new shop!  We also have 2013 subscriptions on sale, so please feel free to browse those!

Cheers and see you in 2013!
