Doctor Who: Ten Little Aliens: 50th Anniversary Edition

by Stephen Cole

Deep in the heart of a hollowed-out moon the First Doctor finds a chilling secret: ten alien corpses, frozen in time at the moment of their death.

They are the empire’s most wanted terrorists, and their discovery could end a war devastating the galaxy.

But is the same force that killed them still lurking in the dark? And what are its plans for the people of Earth?

An adventure featuring the First Doctor as played by William Hartnell and his companions Ben and Polly

Doctor Who: Dreams of Empire: 50th Anniversary Edition

by Justin Richards

On a barren asteroid, the once-mighty Haddron Empire is on the brink of collapse, torn apart by civil war.

The one man who might have saved it languishes in prison, his enemies planning his death and his friends plotting his escape.

The Second Doctor arrives as the last act of this deadly drama is being played out – and with both terrifying killers and cunning traitors to defeat, the future hangs in the balance.

An adventure featuring the Second Doctor as played by Patrick Troughton and his companions Jamie and Victoria

Doctor Who: Last of the Gaderene: 50th Anniversary Edition

by Mark Gatiss

The aerodrome in Culverton has new owners, and they promise an era of prosperity for the idyllic village.

But former Spitfire pilot Alex Whistler is suspicious – when black-shirted troops appear on the streets, he contacts his old friend Brigadier Lethbridge-Stewart at U.N.I.T.

The Third Doctor is sent to investigate – and soon uncovers a sinister plot to colonise the Earth. The Gaderene are on their way…

An adventure featuring the Third Doctor as played by Jon Pertwee and his companion Jo

Doctor Who: Festival of Death: 50th Anniversary Edition

by Jonathan Morris

The Beautiful Death is the ultimate theme-park ride: a sightseeing tour of the afterlife.

But something has gone wrong, and when the Fourth Doctor arrives in the aftermath of the disaster, he is congratulated for saving the population from destruction – something he hasn’t actually done yet.

He has no choice but to travel back in time and discover how he became a hero.

And then he finds out. He did it by sacrificing his life.

An adventure featuring the Fourth Doctor as played by Tom Baker and his companions Romana and K-9

Doctor Who: Fear of the Dark: 50th Anniversary Edition

by Trevor Baxendale

On a moon of the ruined planet Akoshemon, an age-old terror is about to be reborn.

Something that remembers the spiral of war, pestilence and deprivation – and rejoices in it. The Fifth Doctor joins a team of archaeologists searching for evidence of the planet’s infamous past, and uncovers more than just ancient history.

Forced to confront his own worst fears, even the Doctor will be pushed to breaking point – and beyond.

An adventure featuring the Fifth Doctor as played by Peter Davison and his companions Tegan and Nyssa

Doctor Who: Players: 50th Anniversary Edition

by Terrance Dicks

Arriving on the sun-baked veldt in the middle of the Boer War, the Sixth Doctor is soon involved in the adventures of struggling politician and war correspondent Winston Churchill.

Of course, he knows Churchill is destined for great things, but unseen forces seem to be interfering with Winston’s historic career…

The Doctor suspects the hidden hand of the Players, mysterious beings who regard human history as little more than a game. With time running out, can the Doctor find the right moves to defeat them?

An adventure featuring the Sixth Doctor as played by Colin Baker and his companion Peri

Doctor Who: Remembrance of the Daleks: 50th Anniversary Edition

by Ben Aaronovitch

With unfinished business to attend to, the Seventh Doctor returns to where it all began: Coal Hill School in London in 1963.

Last time he was here, the Doctor left something behind – a powerful Time Lord artefact that could unlock the secrets of time travel.

Can the Doctor retrieve it before two rival factions of Daleks track it down? And even if he can, how will the Doctor prevent the whole of London becoming a war zone as the Daleks meet in explosive confrontation?

An adventure featuring the Seventh Doctor as played by Sylvester McCoy and his companion Ace

Doctor Who: Earthworld: 50th Anniversary Edition

by Jacqueline Rayner

Anji has just had the worst week of her life. She should be back at her desk, not travelling through time and space in a police box.

The Eighth Doctor is supposed to be taking her home, so why are there dinosaurs outside? The Doctor doesn’t seem to know either, or else he surely would have mentioned the homicidal princesses, teen terrorists and mad robots?

One thing is certain: Anji is never going to complain about Monday mornings in the office again.

An adventure featuring the Eighth Doctor as played by Paul McGann and his companions Fitz and Anji

Doctor Who: Only Human: 50th Anniversary Edition
by Gareth Roberts

Reports of a time disturbance lead the Ninth Doctor to modern-day London, where he discovers a Neanderthal Man, twenty-eight thousand years after his race became extinct.

A trip back to the dawn of humanity only deepens the mystery: who are these strange humans from the far future now living in the distant past?

The Doctor must learn the truth about the Osterberg experiment before history is changed forever.

An adventure featuring the Ninth Doctor as played by Christopher Eccleston and his companion Rose

Doctor Who: Beautiful Chaos: 50th Anniversary Edition

by Gary Russell

Wilfred Mott is very happy: his granddaughter, Donna, is back home, catching up with family and gossiping about her journeys, and he has just discovered a new star and had it named after him.

He takes the Tenth Doctor with him to the naming ceremony. But the Doctor soon discovers something else new, and worryingly bright, in the heavens – something that is heading for Earth.

It’s an ancient force from the Dark Times. And it is very, very angry…

An adventure featuring the Tenth Doctor as played by David Tennant and his companion Donna

Doctor Who: The Silent Stars Go By: 50th Anniversary Edition
by Dan Abnett

The winter festival is approaching for the hardy colony of Morphans, but no one is in the mood to celebrate.

They’re trying to build a new life on a cold new world, but each year gets harder and harder. It’s almost as if some dark force is working against them.

Then three mysterious travelers arrive out of the midwinter night, one of them claiming to be a doctor. Are they bringing the gift of salvation or doom? And what else might be lurking out there, about to wake up?

An adventure featuring the Eleventh Doctor as played by Matt Smith and his companions Amy and Rory

    Got the full set of these today – there’s nothing here I hadn’t read before but it’s good to see some of the books reissued for a new audience – remember, in the 1990s these are all we had to keep us going with ‘new who’.

  • txfilly

    Where can I buy them? Online or bookstore? Being in the US makes it hard to buy these.

    Fear of the Dark’s original cover is WAY better.

    You can never hope to make a better one than that.

    The only ones I would get are the new Earthworld, Only Human and the Silent Stars go by.

    The others are just sillier/inferior to the original print.

      Is only Human Good ?

    • matparks08

      March 6th, 2013 - 3:09pm

      Only Human is the campest book i’ve ever read – many references to Captain Jack wearing pvc trousers – yes, really!

  • Blackthunder

    • John Whittamore

      February 12th, 2014 - 5:08pm

      Here is an idea… If the books that you have aren’t already part of a set (arranged or self assembled), acquire the new ones and sell the older copies to subsidize the new ones.

  • AlphaOmega

    November 27th, 2012 - 5:00pm

    Gonna get as many as I can – i’m always looking for the old Past Doctor Adventures 😀
