A Second Doctor novel with Jamie and Victoria. The jungle world of Jenggel is divided. On one side are the primitive Papul people, with a picturesque culture. On the other are the civilised Indoni, out to exploit the Papuls for all they are worth, as a fantastic tourist attraction for off-worlders. As long as the Papuls put on their regular display of primeval ethnicity, things will be all right for an extent. But at the slightest flicker of protest, the guns come out. The Doctor, Jamie and Victoria arrive on Jenggel at the height of a period of unrest. The Papul are reverting to their head-hunting ways, and the tourist trade suddenly doesn't seem like such a good idea. At the centre of the disturbance is a mysterious, cruel figure called the Krallik, for whom most Papul would gladly give up their lives. But some question his brutal methods. As the Doctor encourages them to wonder, is freedom to be had at any price? Even that of sanity, or life itself?

Fully updated in November 2011 to include Season 32. Now officially the most popular drama on television, Doctor Who has seen many ups and downs in its long and colourful history. From humble beginnings on 23 November 1963 to its cancellation in 1989 and eventual resurrection in 2005, the show has always been a quintessential element of British popular culture. The spine-chilling theme music, the multi-dimensional Tardis, the evil metallic Daleks and the ever-changing face of the Doctor himself have become trademarks of the programme's witty, eclectic house style. Over the years Doctor Who has embraced such diverse genres as science fiction, horror, westerns, history, romance, adventure and comedy - but has never strayed from its first and most important remit: telling damn good stories. Eleven Doctors, a multitude of companions, and a veritable cornucopia of monsters and villains: Doctor Who has it all. 'The children's own programme which adults adore,' said Gerard Garrett in The Daily Sketch newspaper back in the early 1970s - and it's still the perfect summation of the programme's unique charm. This new, updated edition of the best-selling Pocket Essential guide includes Season 32 first aired in September and October 2011, puts all the Doctors under the microscope with facts, figures and opinions on every Doctor Who story televised. There are sections on TV, radio, cinema, stage and internet spin-offs, novels and audio adventures, missing episodes, and an extensive website listing and bibliography.

When the Ninth Doctor lands in the town of Kennet, he finds that something is terribly wrong. The people are scared. They don't like going out at night, they don't like making too much noise, and they certainly don't like strangers asking questions. What alien force has invaded the town and why is it watching barmaid Alison Cheney? The Ninth Doctor is sardonic, witty, compassionate, and tired of how foolish humans can be. He has lived through things his predecessors never dreamed of but has difficulty with things that those before him have taken for granted. He has secrets that may put him, Alison, and the whole world in danger. The Doctor is helped by his new military liaison Major Kennet and his Royal Green Jacket troops. Starting with a small community under threat, this Doctor Who story takes in the entire world, from New Zealand to India, Siberia to the USA, and cosmic expanses beyond. Originally published in 2004.
