Doctor Who September 2009 Book Details

By Mark
BBC Books have now revealed the cover artwork for three upcoming Doctor Who novels which are set for release in September this year. The titles of the novels are; Autonomy, The Taking of Chelsea 426 and The Krillitane Storm. Each book will contain 256 pages and see the return of an enemy from the Doctor Who TV series. The book's synopses can be read below;

Hyperville is 2013's top hi-tech 24-hour entertainment complex – a sprawling palace of fun under one massive roof. You can shop, or experience the excitement of Doomcastle, Winterland, or Wild West World. But things are about to get a lot more exciting – and dangerous... What unspeakable horror is lurking on Level Zero of Hyperville? And what will happen when the entire complex goes over to Central Computer Control? For years, the Nestene Consciousness has been waiting and planning, recovering from its wounds. But now it’s ready, and it’s deadly plastic Autons are already in place around the complex. Now more than ever, visiting Hyperville will be an unforgettable experience...

The Taking of Chelsea 426
The Chelsea Flower Show: Hardly the most exciting or dangerous event in the calendar, or so the Doctor thinks. But this is Chelsea 426, a city-sized future colony floating on the clouds of Saturn, and the flowers are much more than they seem. As the Doctor investigates, he becomes more and more worried. Why is shopkeeper Mr Pemberton acting so strangely? And what is Professor Wilberforce’s terrible secret? They are close to finding the answers when a familiar foe arrives, and the stakes suddenly get much higher. The Sontarans have plans of their own, and they’re not here to arrange flowers...

The Krillitane Storm
When the TARDIS materialises in medieval Worcester, the Doctor finds the city seemingly deserted. He soon discovers its population are living in a state of terror, afraid to leave their homes after dark, for fear of meeting their doom at the hands of the legendary Devil’s Huntsman. For months, people have been disappearing, and the Sheriff has imposed a strict curfew across the city, his militia maintaining control over the superstitious populace with a firm hand, closing the city to outsiders. Is it fear of attack from beyond the city walls that drives him or the threat closer to home? Or does the Sheriff have something to hide? After a terrifying encounter with a deadly Krillitane, the Doctor realises the city has good reason to be scared.

Each of these books will go on sale at an RRP of £6.99 and all three of them are set for release on the third of September. Autonomy is written by Daniel Blythe, The Taking of Chelsea 426 is written by David Llewellyn and The Krillitane Storm is written by Christopher Cooper. Will you be buying these Doctor Who novels when they are released later this year?

    To be honest I've really stopped buying the Doctor Who books now as there are far too many for me to get and have started reading different books. It's a real shame.
