Doctor Who – Black Thursday / Power Game is out now.
Black Thursday by Jamie Anderson
1902. Deep beneath the Welsh village of Abertysswg, men have worked the black seam for generations. Until the day of the disaster. The day that a blue box from the future materialised inside the mine... and things would never be the same again.
Jamie Anderson, writer of Black Thursday, told us how this story was inspired by a personal connection: “When I moved to the small village of Abertysswg at the end of 2017 I had no idea that I'd become so fascinated by the village's history – in particular its coal mining past. But when I discovered that the village wouldn't have existed without the search for 'black diamonds', I began looking into it more. You'd think that a kid growing up in the 1980s might have a better appreciation of the huge sacrifices made by miners, and the scale of the coal mining industry.
“The personal sacrifices and tragedies were really brought home when I found the miners' memorial just up the road from my house. Seventeen men (the youngest having just turned 17) were killed in a gas explosion in 1902, that happened in the pit just a few hundred metres from where I live.”
Power Game by Eddie Robson
Welcome to the Incredible Power Game, in which three brave Earthlings enter the Void Pit in search of strange gems to help return the alien Hostess to her home dimension. Today's contestants include Graham, Sadia... and Tegan, an air stewardess from Brisbane!
Writer, Eddie Robson, told us about his 1980s television game show inspired story: “Thinking about that period led me onto thinking about The Adventure Game, which I dimly remember watching as a kid, and other gameshows like The Krypton Factor and First Class and The Crystal Maze, and I built up the story from there.†¨
“It’s a little uneasy when Kamelion’s there – Tegan and Turlough are more suspicious of him than the Doctor is. In fact early in the play when Kamelion is missing, Turlough compares him to a lost digital watch. But the Doctor treats Kamelion as a being in his own right, and refuses to give up on him.”

Once upon a time, a people of great artistry and great knowledge ruled the planet Mekalion: the Kamille. For a thousand years, they prospered peacefully.
Then came disaster, when their sun set forever. Facing extinction, the Kamille made the Locus, a device to sustain their minds; and fashioned shape-changing machines, to act out their wishes on the physical plane…
Servants they called the Kamelion.
