Following the report on Outpost Gallifrey in May, Panini Books have confirmed details of the 2008 Doctor Who Storybook.

The TARDIS takes the Doctor and Martha to previously unexplored corners of the universe in this new selection of adventures, full of danger, excitement and fun - and all lavishly illustrated in full colour!

You can join them as they dodge bionic tortoises on a futuristic planet, help an ordinary boy save Christmas by bringing his imagination to life, battle shadowy creatures aboard a giant space station, explore a beautiful undersea paradise with a dark secret, and travel back in time to save a motel from rampaging zombies! Sometimes silly, sometimes scary, always thrilling, these new adventures in time and space will delight fans of all ages!

Containing eight action-packed stories, including writers from the TV series itself:

  • Cats and Dogs by Tom MacRae (writer of TV episodes Rise of the Cybermen and The Age of Steel)
  • The Body Bank by Gareth Roberts (The Shakespeare Code and Attack of the Graske)
  • The Box Under the Tree by Robert Shearman (Dalek)

  • The Iron Circle by Nicholas Briggs (voice of the Daleks and the Cybermen)
  • Kiss of Life by Justin Richards (editor of BBC Books’ Doctor Who range)
  • Deep Water by Nicholas Pegg (Dalek operator)

Plus a new comic strip, Sunscreen by Jonathan Morris, and A Letter from the Doctor – as told to showrunner Russell T Davies!

Featuring new illustrations from Brian Williamson, Andy Walker, Martin Geraghty, Adrian Salmon, Ben Willsher, Daniel McDaid and David A Roach, and a new cover painting from Alister Pearson.
