Information about three upcoming Doctor Who novels, each of which features a returning monster, has now been released. The three novels; Judgement of the Judoon, Prisoner of the Daleks and The Slitheen Excursion are all set for release next year and synopses for the books can be seen below;

Judgement of the Judoon
by Colin Brake
Elvis the King Spaceport has grown into the sprawling city-state of New Memphis - an urban jungle, where organized crime is rife. But the launch of the new Terminal 13 hasn't been as smooth as expected. And things are about to get worse... When the Doctor arrives, he finds the whole terminal locked down. The notorious Invisible Assassin is at work again, and the Judoon troopers sent to catch him will stop at nothing to complete their mission. With the assassin loose on the mean streets of New Memphis, the Doctor is forced into a strange alliance. Together with teenage private eye Nikki and a ruthless Judoon Commander, the Doctor soon discovers that things are even more complicated - and dangerous - than he first thought... Featuring the Doctor as played by David Tennant in the hit BBC Television series.

Prisoner of the Daleks
by Trevor Baxendale

The Daleks are advancing, their empire constantly expanding in to Earth's space. The Earth forces are resisting the Daleks in every way they can. But the battles rage on across countless solar systems. And now the future of our galaxy hangs in the balance... The Doctor finds himself stranded on board a starship near the frontline with a group of ruthless bounty hunters. Earth Command will pay them for every Dalek they kill, every eye stalk they bring back as proof. With the Doctor's help, the bounty hunters achieve the ultimate prize: a Dalek prisoner - intact, powerless, and ready for interrogation. But where the Daleks are involved, nothing is what it seems, and no one is safe. Before long the tables will be turned, and how will the Doctor survive when he becomes a prisoner of the Daleks? Featuring the Doctor as played by David Tennant in the hit BBC Television series.

The Slitheen Excursion
by Simon Guerrier

1500BC - King Actaeus and his subjects live in mortal fear of the awesome gods who have come to visit their kingdom in ancient Greece. Except the Doctor, visiting with university student June, knows they're not gods at all. They're aliens. For the aliens, it's the perfect holiday - they get to tour the sights of a primitive planet and even take part in local customs. Like gladiatorial games, or hunting down and killing humans who won't be missed. With June's enthusiastic help, the Doctor soon meets the travel agents behind this deadly package holiday company - his old enemies the Slitheen. But can he bring the Slitheen excursion to an end without endangering more lives? And how are events in ancient Greece linked to a modern-day alien plot to destroy what's left of the Parthenon? Featuring the Doctor as played by David Tennant in the hit BBC Television series.

All three books will see The Doctor travel alone. Each book will consist of 256 pages and will be published by Random House UK. The expected date of release for these hardback books is the 16th April 2009. Covers for the novels have not yet been released but we'll post them as soon as they have.

    great post, The Dalek one sounds best, The Slitheen one sounds rather weak though.

    Great Picture. I dont usually get the books but from the sound of Prisoner of the Daleks and Judgement of the Judoon, I want them so Bad. Plus, love the fact all three have been in previous books. But Excursion means Journey, bit strange for a Slitheen Journey XD but yes as Daniel said the Slitheen Excursion sounds weak.

    So are these supposed to be set after Donna's departure? It's weird that he's traveling without a companion in all three.
