Doctor Who Storybook 2009

By Mark
Panini Books have now released the cover and details for the Doctor Who Storybook 2009. Containing seven brand new short stories featuring The Doctor and Donna, the book will join the past two Doctor Who storybooks on the shelves later this year. Here is what Panini Books have to say about the publication;

The third of Panini's fully illustrated Doctor Who Storybooks is on the way. Join the Doctor and Donna as the TARDIS travels to previously unseen times and places in this new collection of adventures, full of monsters, thrills and scares and all lavishly illustrated in full colour! The time travellers face mythical beasts on a desert island in the company of Jason and his Argonauts, square up to a terrifying Ice Warrior in the wastes of the Arctic Circle, battle the cute-but-deadly denizens of a theme park gone mad, get tangled up in the mystery of the Bayeux Tapestry, and try to prevent an entire planet from being kidnapped!

The book contains seven brand new short stories, featuring writers from the TV series itself: Hello Children, Everywhere, written by Paul Magrs, illustrated by Brian Williamson; Grand Theft Planet!, written by James Moran (The Fires of Pompeii), illustrated by Daryl Joyce; Cold, written by Mark Gatiss (The Unquiet Dead, The Idiot's Lantern), illustrated by Ben Willsher; Bing Bong, written by Gareth Roberts (The Shakespeare Code, The Unicorn and the Wasp) & Clayton Hickman, illustrated by Dan McDaid; Island of the Sirens, written by Keith Temple (Planet of the Ood), illustrated by Adrian Salmon; The Puplet, written by Gary Russell, illustrated by Andy Walker; and Hold Your Horses, written by Nicholas Pegg, illustrated by Jon Haward & Nigel Dobbyn. Plus there's a comic strip, The Immortal Emperor written by Jonathan Morris with art by Rob Davis, and A Letter from the Doctor as told to new showrunner Steven Moffat (The Empty Child/The Doctor Dances, The Girl in the Fireplace, Blink, Silence in the Library/Forest of the Dead).

The 80-page hardback also features a beautiful new painted cover by Alister Pearson and a frontispiece by David A Roach. Published by Panini Books and edited by Clayton Hickman.

The Doctor Who Storybook 2009 is scheduled for release on the 1st August and will go on sale at an RRP of £7.99. It will consist of 80 pages and only be available in hardback edition. With new stories from some of the show's writers, it's a must have for all fans of Doctor Who. Will you be buying the Doctor Who Storybook 2009?

    Cool Cover. Donna looks great but the Doctor look a bit different (Yes I know its a drawing) its just something about the face. Might ask for this for my Birthday in September.

Something to say?
