Looking to visit one of the Seven Hundred Wonders of the Universe, the Doctor is quickly embroiled in a web of deceit. Worse than that, this Wonder of the Universe is missing, leading the Doctor to encounter one of his most dangerous and duplicitous adversaries. The Doctor is about to meet Brian.

  • The Enemy of My Enemy by Tracy Ann Baines

The people of Wrax are happy to begin peaceful negotiations with the Dalek Empire. The two species are preparing to engage in an alliance that will last throughout the ages.

The only one who seems to object to this happy union is the Doctor. He knows that you can never trust the Daleks.But more than that, he knows that the Wraxians should never have existed…

  • Mutually Assured Destruction by Lizzie Hopley

The fallout of the great battle. Outnumbered and alone, on a Dalek time-ship careering through the vortex, the Doctor must use all his cunning to survive. As the saucer disintegrates around them, the Doctor is trapped with a crew of increasingly desperate Daleks. Or are the Daleks trapped with him?

Story details for the Doctor Who –Short Trip sare as follows:

  • Master Thief by Sophie Iles

The Master wants to plunder one of the most secure vaults in the universe, the Repository. He’s got a plan, and a deadly new weapon to assist him. However, as the Master quickly discovers, getting in might be easy, but getting away with it might cost him everything. Lesser Evils by Simon Guerrier The Kotturuh have arrived on the planet Alexis to distribute the gift of the death to its inhabitants. The only person standing in their way is a renegade Time Lord, who has sworn to protect the locals. A Time Lord called the Master…

Producer Alfie Shaw said: “Time Lord Victorious has been a glorious delight to work on. James Goss’ vision is astounding, and it’s been such an honour to work with him to bring Big Finish’s part of the project to life.“We have three new authors writing the Eighth Doctor trilogy, pitting him against one of my new favourite characters in Doctor Who, Brian the Ood Assassin, as well old favourites, the Daleks. It all ties into the bigger Time Lord Victorious patchwork, but you can just listen to the McGann Trilogy and enjoy it on its own.”


BBC Books

BBC Books has revealed that it will be publishing two novels to tie into BBC Studios multi-platform Doctor Who story, Time Lord Victorious.

Time Lord Victorious will tell a new and untold story, set within the Dark Times at the start of the universe, when even the Eternals were young. Following several Doctors across space and time as they defend their home planet from a terrible race, this is a story like no other.

Time Lord Victorious will feature the Eighth, Ninth and Tenth Doctor characters, companion Rose Tyler and monsters including the Daleks and the Ood, with more to be revealed over the coming months as products are announced.

Doctor Who: The Knight, The Fool and The Dead by Steve Cole

Published on 1ST October 2020 by BBC Books, priced £9.99

Available to order in the UK from www.amazon.co.uk, www.bookdepository.com, www.waterstones.com and www.forbiddenplanet.com

Available to order in the USA from www.amazon.com

We live forever, barring accidents. Just like everyone else in the universe.

The Doctor travels back to the Dark Times, an era where life flourishes and death is barely known…

Then come the Kotturuh – creatures who spread through the cosmos dispensing mortality. They judge each and every species and decree its allotted time to live. For the first time, living things know the fear of ending. And they will go to any lengths to escape this grim new spectre, death.

The Doctor is an old hand at cheating death. Now, at last, he can stop it at source. He is coming for the Kotturuh, ready to change everything so that life wins from the start. Not just the last of the Time Lords. The Time Lord Victorious.


Doctor Who: All Flesh Is Grass by Una McCormack

Available to order in the UK from www.amazon.co.uk, www.bookdepository.com, www.waterstones.com and www.forbiddenplanet.com

Available to order in the USA from www.amazon.com

Even a Time Lord can’t change the past.

A wasteland. A dead world… No, there is a biodome rising from the ashes. Here, life teems and flourishes, with strange, lush plants and many-winged insects with bright carapaces – and one solitary sentient creature, who spends its days talking to the insects and tending this lonely garden. This is Inyit, the Last of the Kotturuh.

In All Flesh is Grass we are transported back to The Dark Times. The Tenth Doctor has sworn to stop the Kotturuh, ending death and bringing life to the universe. But his plan is unravelling – instead of bringing life, nothing has changed and all around him people are dying. Death is everywhere. Now he must confront his former selves – one in league with their greatest nemesis and the other manning a ship of the undead…

    What’s happened to the Titan Comic? I’m sure I saw one advertised, thought about getting it despite giving up on them, decided to get it anyway as it’s part of this multi-platform adventure. Now I can’t find it here or on FP’s site. Did I dream the whole thing?

      no i put them on last night after FP did and then they took them off so we removed them, gut feeling they jumped the gun, the page links are dead.

      people already copied the image so they are all over the place now anyway

      Thanks booboo. I assumed that would be the case, but, yeah, the cat’s out of the bag now. Think I’ll go for the Gold Dalek cover when I’m allowed.

      I’m wondering what happened to the Sea Devils cover that’s at the back of the last 13th Doctor comic Titan published. One of the other issue covers? In any case, these comics with the Dalek covers will have to be in the next Previews to order if the collected edition is still on track to be published in December.

      i think its all altered, the new description does not mention Sea Devils or the 13th Doctor.

      I think its now separate to the ongoing 13th/10th Doctor crossover.

    @the fishmonger:
    Thx for the answer – but I‘m from Germany and for all these releases the additional postage is way high. So in the past I ordered via amazon

    Doesn’t it sound as though the 8th Doctor’s BF stories were ripped out of the Time War box sets and renamed.

    I’m failing to see how any of the Timelord Victorious merchandise is connected at the moment, they don’t even feature the same villain?

    Don’t get me wrong I am super excited for it all, I just hope it’s not a blanket title to help sell more of each product. There is a difference between it all being connected, and it all being set in the same universe… everything has been set in the same universe since 1963 (mostly).

      Well Brian the Ood and that masked and cloaked figure on the Time Lord Victorious Short Trip covers are on the cover of the The Knight, The Fool and The Dead book cover so we can see connections already

      Aren’t the all set in the Dark Times too, so there is another connection.

      They will get to Amazon eventually but all Big Finish releases are exclusive to Big Finish website for a few months first. If you’re in the UK I would always order from Big Finish direct because a) they get more of your money than if you order through Amazon and b) you get a digital copy free when you buy a physical copy.

      Not sure if the TLV audios will be available elsewhere on initial release because it’s a different collaborative project.

      BIG finish is quiet a small company so I always order from them direct when I can!
