Telos Publishing has released details and cover illustrations for three of its unofficial Doctor Who reference books due out in 2006 in a press release now on the website. The press release is reproduced below; click on each thumbnail for a larger version of each book's cover illustration.
Telos has also announced that its Time Hunter series, a spinoff from its now out-of-print Doctor Who novellas range, will be coming to an end in 2006. Says publisher Stephen James Walker: "The Time Hunter novels always tell exciting stand-alone stories, but readers who've followed the series regularly will probably have spotted that we've been gradually dropping more and more hints about the 'back story' to the adventures of Honore and Emily. In the final three novels, and in particular in the concluding title, Child of Time by George Mann, the full picture will be revealed at last - and there are some real surprises in store! We have been planning this for a long time, and I think readers will find these three final Time Hunter tales a fitting climax to the series." The three books will includeThe Albino's Dancer by Dale Smith in April 2006, with the other two to be released later in the year. (Thanks to Telos Publishing)

Later in 2006 Telos will follow the broadcast of the second season of the new 2006 Doctor Who series with a companion volume to our acclaimed 2005 series guide, Back to the Vortex.
Second Flight: Back to the Vortex II - The Unofficial and Unauthorised Guide to Doctor Who 2006 is, like it's predecessor, written by J Shaun Lyon and picks up where Back to the Vortex left off. Second Flight continues the story of the development of Doctor Who as David Tennant takes over the TARDIS from Christopher Eccleston and embarks on a 2005 Christmas special ('The Christmas Invasion') as well as a second series of adventures in time and space.
Second Flight reveals the background to the series, from the announcements, to the press releases, casting calls, the highs and lows, and the return of the dreaded Cybermen.
The book also features detailed analysis of the new adventures, facts and figures, and exclusive review commentary from an international panel of writers and critics.
