The latest Black Archive release (due September 3 2018) is the Seventh Doctor and Ace story The Curse of Fenric. If that’s not enough to tempt you to dip into this excellent range of books, you might like to know this particular study was written by Una McCormack, well-known for her Doctor Who written (Big Finish and other) and best-selling novels. If you need even more reason, as I write this is even on sale, just click through the link!
Here’s the blurb from the website:
‘The dark curse follows our dragon ship.’
One of the last stories of Doctor Who’s original 26-year run, The Curse of Fenric is the first to make use of a Second World War setting. Complex and thoughtful, the story – and its various extended editions – draws on a range of sources and responds to a variety of social and cultural contexts. A vivid historical that stands on its own terms, The Curse of Fenric explores themes of history, maturation, progress, and collective action.
I’m a big fan of Fenric (the story not the ancient god) and put some thoughts together some time ago: The Curse of Fenric reviewed.
I’m planning to read this particular archive – when I have I’ll share some thoughts!
