The Fourth Doctor Adventures: The Trouble with Drax

The fourth Doctor continues his adventures alongside Romana and K-9:
Altrazar. The temporal Atlantis, a place lost to time. Believed by many to be a myth, it has long been the perfect location for the rich and powerful to hide away their most dangerous secrets. Until now. Because the somewhat crooked, not exactly honest, wheeler-dealer cockney Time Lord known as Drax has found a map that leads to its location. And, at the behest of a manipulative businessman, he's going to use it. When the TARDIS is dragged out of the space-time vortex, its crew aren't best pleased to see the Doctor's old school friend, even less when he pressgangs them into joining a raid on the most secure safe-house in history. However with Romana and K9 held hostage, the Doctor has little choice but to agree. With Drax in tow, he heads for the planet. Which is where the trouble starts.

They don't like going onto the streets at night; they don't like too much noise; and they certainly don't like strangers asking too many questions. What alien force has invaded the town?

BBC Books: The Scientific Secrets of Doctor Who (paperback)

BBC Books are re-issuing their book exploring science in Doctor Who on 7th July:
Doctor Who tells many amazing science fiction stories - but how much of the science is actually real, and how much is really fiction? The Scientific Secrets Of Doctor Who shows how its storytelling has always been intricately linked to science, and how close it has come in predicting future discoveries. With fifteen all-new Doctor Who stories as starting points, Simon Guerrier and Dr Marek Kulula investigate the latest and most boggling scientific ideas through the prism of the series. Everything from TARDIS physics to the possibility of life on other planets is explained, delving into the lore of the show, and the scientific laws it both adheres to and gleefully ignores.
