Lethbridge-Stewart: Mind of StoneBookmark and Share

Saturday, 3 December 2016 - Reported by Chuck Foster
Candy Jar Books have released details on the final Lethbridge-Stewart novel for 2016:
Lethbridge-Stewart: Mind of Stone (Credit: Candy Jar Books)Lethbridge-Stewart: Mind of Stone
Written by Iain McLaughlin
Cover by Colin Howard

"You will be taken from this court and remanded in custody until your trial."

Brigadier Lethbridge-Stewart has been remanded to Wormwood Scrubs Prison, and his team have no idea why. Secrecy surrounds his case, but his team barely have a chance to process anything before they are sent on a mission to Egypt.

Why does it seem like Lethbridge-Stewart is going out of his way to court trouble from the prison’s most notorious inmates?And what does it have to do with well-known gangster Hugh Godfrey?

In the Ptolemaic Museum of Cairo, Anne Travers and her team aretrying to uncover the mystery surrounding some very unusual stone statues.Statues that resemble those held in a secure military facility in Berkshire.

One thing connects these events; the mysterious cargo transportedby Colonel Pemberton and Captain Knight in August 1968.


The book includes a foreward by Victor Pemberton

The book is written by scottish author Iain McLaughlin, known for his Big Finish creation, the Egyptian pharoah Erimem who became a companion to the fifth Doctor, and now the subject of her own series from 2015. In 2004, he also co-wrote two scripts in Big Finish’s UNIT series, both of which featured Nicholas Courtney as Brigadier Lethbridge-Stewart. Iain says:
Back in 2004 I was lucky enough to write for the older Brigadier in Big Finish’s UNIT series. That was an absolute joy. It was an older, wiser but always resolute Brig. Passing years hadn’t diminished his sense of duty or his willingness to risk everything to do what needed doing and do what was right. Writing those scripts was as big a buzz for me as writing for the Doctor. Hearing Nick be complimentary about how we had handled the Brig was one of the happiest moments of my career. Writing a younger version of the Brigadier was something I had pondered, but I didn’t see how I could do it… until news of the Lethbridge-Stewart books came along. When I had the chance to pitch I jumped at it, just for the chance to spend some time with a character who feels like an old friend.

I wanted the book to start with a bang – and so we go straight into the Brig being sent to jail. From there… well, life inside Britain’s prison system wasn’t easy. I’d read about Wormwood Scrubs having been used as a military installation during WW2 and that helped me shape the story and plan how it would unfold. Using the Scrubs made me think of TV and films from the ‘60s and ‘70s that had a real edge. McVicar, Get Carter, Target, The Long Good Friday… suddenly the Brig in jail had some edge, and it was the kind of situation we’d never seen him in before. But he’s clever and he’s resourceful… the Brigadier isn’t Colonel Blimp. He’s a damned good soldier, and he’s a dangerous man in the right situation. I hope that’s the Brig you see in this book. As an outline it went through a few revisions, as most books do. But through the writing and the rewriting, the joy at the heart of it is the Brigadier having new adventures. Taking this wonderful character, putting him in situations he needs to resolve and writing dialogue people will read in Nick’s wonderful, rich voice… that’s an honour and a pleasure. Nick and the Brigadier? Splendid fellows, both of them.
Range Editor Andy Frankham-Allen says:
This was a fun story to break. The idea of Lethbridge-Stewart serving time in prison came from Shaun; it was of the earlier ideas we discussed. I personally wanted to bring back both Captain Knight and Colonel Pemberton, who have both been mentioned several times in the series. Indeed both have appeared in some of our short stories, so it was nice to bring them into the novels properly. I approached Iain after he was recommended by a friend, although I was aware of his work I had forgotten he’d written for the Brigadier back in 2004. Iain was up for it, and took on board the small ‘shopping list’, building a very solid story from the initial ideas.
Shaun Russell, head of publishing at Candy Jar, says:
I thought it would be great idea putting Lethbridge-Stewart in prison, so it was a lot of fun to finally read the book (by the time I read them, at the formatting stage, these books are fully written). It was just as I hoped it would be. It combines the tough storytelling of The Sweeney, with comedy elements of Porridge. Iain has really done a fantastic job on this book, bringing some much-needed comedy touches to the Brigadier’s time inside.
The cover of Mind of Stone is by regular cover artist, Colin Howard (who recently produced the cover for the animated Doctor Who DVD, The Power of the Daleks). Colin says:
I really enjoyed bringing Captain Knight to the fore, as I particularly like the performances that actor Ralph Watson brought to both The Web of Fear and Horror of Fang Rock, and he deserves such a homage. Andy knows my strength, and gave me a brief that really brings out the best in me.

Mind of Stone also features a forward by former Doctor Who script editor, and author of the classic Fury from the Deep, Victor Pemberton, close friend of Mervyn Haisman and the man after whom Colonel Pemberton was named.

The book is due to be shipped out mid-December 2016, and can be pre-ordered individually or as part of the Series 3 Bundle (both UK and overseas), which includes the previous novels, Times Squared by Rick Cross, and Blood of Atlantis by Simon A Forward, or the subscription deal for those wishing to get six books for the price of five (now extended to international customers). There is also offering a special promotion for its online customers.


It is still possible to enter our competition to win Series 3 of Lethbridge-Stewart, closing date 11th December.

London Doctor Who meeting venue re-opensBookmark and Share

Thursday, 1 December 2016 - Reported by Chuck Foster
Jeremy Bentham has announced the return of regular Doctor Who fan meetings in central London:

THE FITROY TAVERN in Central London has reopened its doors to visitors following completion of a year-long, multi-million pound refurbishment that had seen Fitzrovia's most celebrated pub upgraded and restored to its original Victorian splendour.

Since 1984 'The Tavern' has played host to the regular First Thursday of each month evening gatherings of Doctor Who fans, keen to meet, exchange gossip, share or catch up on news and compare views on all things Who-related. In keeping with the area's reputation for attracting the famous, celebrated attendees of First Thursday gatherings have, down the years, included Douglas Adams, John Nathan-Turner, Terrance Dicks, Barry Lettrs, Nick Briggs, Steven Moffat and a good many faces from Doctor Who Magazine, past and present.

At ground level 'The Tavern' has now been divided into four separate bars, each with its own distinctive Victorian style. The Edwardian-styled upstairs is more spacious and likely to be the area most frequented by fans. This area also includes the dining area.

Located on the corner of Windmill Street and Charlotte Street, THE FITZROY TAVERN’s nearest Underground Station is Goodge Street on the Northern Line.

The next First Thursday gathering will take place on 1st December.

Tuesday, 29 November 2016 - Reported by Marcus
Tom Baker /Pam Ferris (Credit: Big Finish )The fourth doctor, in the form of Tom Baker, is to battle the Vashta Nerada in an new audio play from Big Finish.

The Fourth Doctor has joined the line-up for the new series Doctor Who: Classic Doctors, New Monsters, where he will be battle a foe that will one day fight his Tenth incarnation.

The new story, recorded on 16 November, finds the Doctor in a futuristic funfair on an alien world where he comes across the flesh eating shadows, created by Steven Moffat for the David Tennant story Silence in the Library.

Producer David Richardson said
Our first volume of Classic Doctors, New Monsters really captured the imaginations of our listeners. They loved the fusion of two different eras of the TV series. And I’m sure they are going to equally love John Dorney’s brilliant Night of the Vashta Nerada, in which the shadowy predators create mayhem in a story straight out of the Philip Hinchcliffe era.
With the Fourth Doctor travelling alone, director Barnaby Edwards has assembled a fine guest cast. Pam Ferris (Call the Midwife, Rosemary and Thyme) plays professional hunter Amanda Steele, Lorelei King (Doctor Who: A Town Called Mercy) is Georgia Donnelly, Emma Lowndes (Downton Abbey, Cranford) plays Phelan, Matt Devitt (Campus, Down to Earth) plays Bernnetto.

Delia Derbyshire honoured in CoventryBookmark and Share

Monday, 28 November 2016 - Reported by Marcus
Delia Derbyshire is to be honoured in her hometown of Coventry by having a road named after her.

The creation of Derbyshire Way will pay tribute to the musician, who will forever be remembered for her work in realising the original Doctor Who Theme Music, written in 1963 by Ron Grainer.

Delia Derbyshire is considered one of the most important and influential pioneers of electronic music in the United Kingdom, who inspired acts from The Beatles to The Chemical Brothers. Her contribution to Doctor Who came when she was working for the BBC Radiophonic Workshop and was asked to turn Grainer's score into an electronic theme for the new science fiction series. Aided by Dick Mills, Derbyshire created the iconic theme music by creating each note separately by cutting, splicing, speeding up, and slowing down recordings of a single plucked string, white noise, and the output of test-tone oscillators. The notes were then edited together on quarter-inch tape. Mixing was done by starting several tape machines simultaneously and mixing the outputs together.

Derbyshire, who died in 2001, will now give her name to Derbyshire Way, part of a new housing estate in the city of her birth. The recognition follows a campaign led by the Coventry Music Museum, which features a permanent display dedicated to her work.

Museum Director Pete Chambers spoke about her legacy
It's fitting as we bid for the City Of Culture 2021, that the bid does not ignore our music heritage, and that people from around the world know Delia was a Coventry legend, a woman who influenced The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, Orbital, The Chemical Brothers and even Pink Floyd, indeed, she is considered by many to be the Mother of Progressive Rock.

I firmly believe that if she were alive today, Delia would have triple 'D' status – she would be Dame Delia Derbyshire. Sadly that will never happen, so it's wonderfully fitting that there is something in her native Coventry dedicated to this very special lady. Originally it was to be named Derbyshire Road, but I suggested 'Way' instead to give it a double meaning, as Delia was a genius and strong personality and really did do things in her own way.
The project was supported by councillors Linda Bigham and Gary Ridley who said
Delia Derbyshire produced sounds in the 1960s which were at least twenty years ahead of their time. A true pioneer of electronic music, she achieved this without the modern equipment that producers had in the 1980s and 1990s. Perhaps best known for the theme tune to Doctor Who, Delia will remain a national treasure and this is a fitting tribute to one of Coventry's most celebrated daughters.
Next May, the Coventry Music Museum will host a celebration of what would have been Derbyshire's 80th Birthday.

Lethbridge-Stewart: The Wishing BazaarBookmark and Share

Friday, 25 November 2016 - Reported by Chuck Foster
Candy Jar Books have announced their latest Lethbridge-Stewart e-book, free to subscribers and those pre-ordering the next novel in the range, Blood of Atlantis.

Lethbridge-Stewart: The Wishing Bazaar (Credit: Candy Jar Books)Lethbridge-Stewart: The Wishing Bazaar
Written by Sharon Bidwell
Cover illustration by Richard Young

Back from New York, Lethbridge-Stewart is investigating one of the strangest cases that has come across his desk yet. Wishes are coming true, and if there’s one thing Lethbridge-Stewart still doesn’t believe in it’s magic. But what if he’s wrong?


This story is set between Times Squared and Blood of Atlantis.

The e-book is by author Sharon Bidwell, who as well as writing several novel under pen names Sharon Maria Bidwell and Sharon Kernow, also wrote three books in the Space: 1899 & Beyond series, one of which was co-authored with Lethbridge-Stewart range editor Andy Frankham-Allen, who said:
I first met Sharon via the wonderful world of social media back in, I think, 2009. I was very impressed with her work, and soon enlisted her for my Space: 1889 & Beyond series. Her work ethic was proven to me when a novella fell through at the last minute and she agreed to co-author a replacement with me – which we did, in only two weeks! Sharon’s first drafts are often better than a lot of published works out there, and from the off I told her that I would get her writing for the Lethbridge-Stewart series. She resisted for all of five minutes.
Sharon said:
I've written for and with Andy before with great success, so I was not entirely surprised when he got in contact about his latest project. For one thing, he'd been 'hinting' for some time that he wanted to rope me in and Andy isn't someone who understands no as an answer.Whenever I hear from Andy, I never know whether to cheer or groan. All those who write novels for well-known television shows now have my utmost respect. Some find it easy; for others the experience feels difficult and involves a lot of angst. I'm one of those worriers. Despite the responsibility, Andy has dragged me into incredible worlds and stories that are part of history and there's no way not to be grateful for that.Invariably the experience of writing for Lethbridge-Stewart was, for me, daunting, exciting, fun, and adventurous…a bit like the character himself.
Shaun Russell, head of publishing at Candy Jar, said:
Sharon was an unknown quantity for me, but I knew that Andy had worked with her before, so I was more than happy to see what she’d come up with. Having read her short story, and looked up her other work, I now believe she’s going to be a wonderful addition to our stable of authors on this series.

The cover of The Wishing Bazaar is by regular cover artist, Richard Young, who said:
I adore working with Candy Jar, and their cover briefs are always so specific, but this one was rather ambiguous as there were several elements that I could have used on the cover. I decided to concentrate on the alien of the piece.One passage of the story mentioned its burning eyes. Using a combination of traditional drawing and then colourisation in Photoshop (to really get the blazing eyes right), this is what I came up with.And I'm pleased to say everyone loved it.


The Wishing Bazaar will be sent out to every person who pre-orders Blood of Atlantis (Simon A Forward), which can be purchased individually or as part of the Series 3 Bundle (both UK and overseas), which includes the previous novel, Times Squared (Rick Cross), and the forthcoming novel, Mind of Stone (Iain McLaughlin), or the subscription deal for those wishing to get six books for the price of five.

Candy Jar is also pleased to announce that the subscription offer is now being extended to international customers. Please see their subscription page for more details.
