The announcements continue! We’ve had the licence, we’ve had The Doom Coalition, now it’s the turn of the novel adaptations. There is also an announcement due tomorrow! Today’s announcement is here: DOCTOR WHO: THE NOVEL ADAPTATIONS CONTINUE! This means lots more Seventh Doctor. Bundles are available!
My thoughts (such as they are, I’ve read few of the Virgin Adventures) are below…
December 2015 sees Theatre of War, written (in 1994) and adapted by Justin Richards and it’s Ace and Benny
December also gives a cross-over with Sherlock Holmes (played by Nick Briggs already on Big Finish audio) in All-consuming Fire the 1994 Andy Lane novel adapted by Guy Adams. This also gives us Ace and Benny
April 2016 sees a Mark Gatiss novel, 1992’s Nightshade adapted by newcomer Kyle Szikora and just featuring Ace as the companion
December 2016 has a John Dorney adaptation of another Andy Lane novel, the 1995 tale Original Sin. This has Benny and the Doctor meeting Adjudicator Roz Forrester and Chris Cwej for the first time
December 2016 also brings a surprise. The only clue we have is it won’t be Human Nature. Lungbarrow anybody?
