Author: Gary Russell

Publisher: BBC Books (2015)

Christmas 2015, Sydney, New South Wales, Australia. Imagine everyone's surprise when a time portal opens up in Sydney Cove. Imagine their shock as a massive pyramid now sits beside the Harbour Bridge, glowing with energy. Imagine their fear as Cyrrus "the mobster" Globb, Professor Horace Jaanson and alien assassin Kik arrive. Finally imagine everyone's dismay when a bunch of con artists turn up to spring their greatest grift yet. This gang consists of Legs, Dog Boy, Shortie, Da Trowel, and their leader, Doc, who is busy making sure the universe isn't destroyed.

Doctor Who: I Am A Dalek

Author: Gareth Roberts

Part of a series: Doctor Who

Publisher: BBC Books (2006)

Equipped with space suits, golf clubs and a flag, the Doctor and Rose are planning to live it up on the Moon, Apollo-mission style. But the TARDIS has other plans, landing them instead in a village on the south coast of England; a picture-postcard sort of place where nothing much happens...until now. Archaeologists have dug up a Roman mosaic, dating from the year 70 AD. It shows scenes from ancient myths, bunches of grapes - and a Dalek. A few days later a young woman, rushing to get to work, is knocked over and killed by a bus. Then she comes back to life. It's not long before all hell breaks loose, and the Doctor and Rose must use all their courage and cunning against an alien enemy - and a not-quite-alien accomplice - who are intent on destroying humanity.
