Something Borrowed
Written by Richelle Mead
Published 23rd June 2013

A wedding on the planet Koturia turns out to be a far more dangerous proposition than the Sixth Doctor and Peri ever expected. It marks the return of a formidable old foe whose genius matches the Doctor’s. Can the Doctor outwit this villain, save Peri and stop the wedding in time?

Richelle Mead's love of fantasy and science-fiction began at an early age when her father read her Greek mythology and her brothers made her watch Flash Gordon. She went on to study folklore and religion at the University of Michigan, and, when not writing, Richelle spends her time drinking lots of coffee, keeping up with reality TV, and collecting 1980s T-shirts. Richelle lives with her family in Seattle in the USA.

Mead commented:
I've always loved watching Colin Baker as The Doctor. When he's on the screen, you can't take your off eyes off of him—and no, I’' not just talking about his infamous wardrobe! Everything him about is larger than life: his personality, his ingenuity, his biting humour. He's one of the darker of the Doctors, and yet through it all, that heroism and need to do what's right never fails. That's what makes him so fascinating to me. It's an author's dream to be able to write with a character like that.

A video of the author will be released on YouTube by BBC Worldwide later in the month, with the book itself coming out on the 23rd June. You can also read an extract from the book via the Guardian.

The author can be found online via her website www.richellemead.com or on Twitter at @richellemead.
