Read full description of the books:
This is the eighth book of the 50th Anniversary short stories' event featuring the 11 doctors with 11 different companions. Now it's the turn of the Eighth Doctor and he has a totally new companion for this short story, Captain Evelyn Chan.
It's an interesting story, a rather simple with a typical plot. However, it's engaging to read and it adds a peculiar variation in the theme of viruses from outer space.
A new companion: Captain Evelyn Chan. When you meet her and she starts to interact with the Eighth Doctor, you know that she is a new companion and a really interesting one.
New villain: The Spore. Some kind of outer space virus with particular phases of development.
There is a reference to UNIT, that it's cool and really helpful to keep advancing the plot without delays.
The climax is solved quite easy and you lack of full disclosure of how it was solved. You'll understand if you decide to read it.
The Eighth Doctor only has one "canonical" appearance which is the Doctor Who: TV Movie. In there, he only had as companion, Dr. Grace Holloway. I understand that the rights to use the character of Grace Holloway have been rather messy, so no wonder that Alex Scarrow, the author, chose instead to create a new companion. Since the rest of apperances of the Eighth Doctor had been on novels, comics and audio dramas, it's really tricky to set when this short story happened. Specially, since at least in novels he always had some companion with him, and he started this short story alone. There are a couple of times on comics and audio dramas reporting him without companion. But I don't dare to get that far in this case to locate the moment of the adventure.

Read information about the authorI live a nomadic existence with my wife Frances, and son Jacob. For now we're living in Norwich. I spent the first 10 years out of college in the music business chasing record deals and the next 12 years in the computer games business as a graphic artist and eventually a games designer. For those of you who like their computer games, here's some of the titles I've worked on:
Waterworld, Evolva, The Thing, Spartan, Gates of Troy, Legion Arena
Since signing up as an author with Orion, I seem to spend most of my time hunched over my laptop in various cafes and coffee bars sipping lattes, tapping keys and watching the ebb and flow of shoppers outside on the street. As I write this, I'm awaiting the launch of my next book - the sequel to , LAST LIGHT, and getting ready to find a publisher for the first book in a separate series, ELLIE QUIN. Ahead of me, lies research work for my next thriller, and also some screenplays I'm looking forward to writing. Although I'm glad to be where I am now, I do occasionally kick myself for not having succumbed to the writing bug much earlier. But then we all just muddle along through life, don't we? There's rarely a plan.
