Latest News from Doctor Who...

The BBC Press Office has released the synopsis for the fifth episode from the current series of Doctor Who:

The Rebel Flesh - by Matthew Graham
A solar tsunami sends the Tardis hurtling towards a futuristic factory on Earth, where human doppelgangers are used to mine dangerous acid, as the time-travelling adventures continue.

A second wave hits and the "Gangers" separate. They can remember every second of their "original's" life and feel every emotion they've ever experienced. But are these memories stolen or have they been bequeathed? Are the Gangers merely faulty machinery that must be shut down or are they living, breathing, sentient beings? Can the Doctor convince the terrified humans to accept these "almost people" and prevent an all-out civil war before the factory explodes?

Doctor Who: The Rebel Flesh will broadcast on Saturday 21st May at 6:00pm on BBC One and BBC One HD.

BBC Books have released the covers and synopsis on three new Doctor Who novels:

TOUCHED BY AN ANGEL - by Jonathan Morris
'The past is like a foreign country. Nice to visit, but you really wouldn’t want to live there.'

In 2003, Rebecca Whitaker died in a road accident. Her husband Mark is still grieving. He receives a battered envelope, posted eight years ago, containing a set of instructions with a simple message: “You can save her.”

As Mark is given the chance to save Rebecca, it’s up to the Doctor, Amy and Rory to save the whole world. Because this time the Weeping Angels are using history itself as a weapon.

PARADOX LOST - by George Mann
'The Squall feed on psychic energy. They spread like a plague and if they are not stopped they will strip the Earth clean…'

London 1910: an unsuspecting thief finds himself confronted by grey-skinned creatures that are waiting to devour his mind.

London 3189: the remains of an ancient android are dredged from the Thames.

When reactivated it has a warning that can only be delivered to a man named ‘the Doctor’.

The Doctor and his friends must solve a mystery that has spanned over a thousand years. If they fail, the deadly alien Squall will devour the world.

BORROWED TIME - by Naomi A. Alderman
'You want more time Mr Brown, of course you do. We all want more time. Let me make you an offer…’

Andrew Brown never has enough time. No time to call his sister, or to prepare for that important presentation at the bank where he works.

The train’s late, the lift jams. If only he’d had just a little more time. And time is the business of Mr Symington and Mr Blenkinsop.

They’ll lend him some - at a very reasonable rate of interest.

Detecting a problem, the Doctor, Amy and Rory go undercover at the bank. But they have to move fast to stop Symington and Blenkinsop before they cash in their investments.

All three novels are on sale from 23rd June at all good newsagents priced £6.99 each. In other news: tokens for three exclusive Doctor Who Character Building figures can be found in this Saturday, Sunday and Monday's edition of the Daily Mail/ Sunday Mail. The figures include Eleventh Doctor in blue tie with Sonic Screwdriver, Eternal Dalek and Amy Pond in clothes from The Pandorica Opens and The Big Bang.
