Take a look ahead to what 2016 has in store for the Doctor Who Main Range – including our summer blockbuster, Doctor Who: The Two Masters!
The Doctor Who Main Range brings you a new full-cast adventure every month, starring one of the original actors to play the Doctor on television! Featuring fantastic new creations or the best-loved monsters from the past of the series, these stories are perfect for Doctor Who fans young and old.
Our 2016 run of titles began with an artistic adventure for Peter Davison in Doctor Who: The Waters of Amsterdam. Set immediately after the events of the TV story Arc of Infinity, this new story by Jonathan Morris shed light on Tegan's (Janet Fielding) time away from the TARDIS – which leads her and Nyssa (Sarah Sutton) to an alien plot involving the famed painter Rembrandt!
The Fifth Doctor's latest trilogy continued in February with the recently released Doctor Who: Aquitaine by Simon Barnard and Paul Morris. Taking place on a abandoned spaceship orbiting a black hole, the TARDIS team find themselves in need of assistance when attacked by ghosts – can the ship's robotic butler Hargreaves lend a hand?
The trilogy concludes in March with Doctor Who: The Peterloo Massacre by Paul Magrs. Trapped in one of the darkest days in Manchester's history, the crew must fight to survive as terrible events play out between the workers and the aristocracy.
But the Fifth Doctor's travels don't end there – as in April he sets off for a solo showdown with the Master (Geoffrey Beevers). Doctor Who: And You Will Obey Me by Alan Barnes is the first entry in our Two Masters trilogy and sees the Doctor return to the village of Hexford, where the Master's remains have apparently been buried. But some alien bounty hunters may have something to say about that....
Meanwhile the Sixth Doctor (Colin Baker) takes on another incarnation of the Master (Alex Macqueen) at the site of an old conflict in Doctor Who: Vampire of the Mind by Justin Richards. A haunted castle may lead to the whereabouts of a group of missing scientists; but there are far worse things than ghosts waiting for the Time Lord...
The trilogy concludes with an epic climax in Doctor Who: The Two Masters by John Dorney. Now united against a common threat, two incarnations of the Master recruit the Seventh Doctor (Sylvester McCoy) to save the Universe from total destruction. Along the way they'll face Rocket Men, the Gorlan Empire and a dangerous cult – what could possibly go wrong?
The Seventh Doctor will also appear in the subsequent trilogy of releases, reunited with both of his TV companions. Bonnie Langford and Sophie Aldred star as Mel and Ace in three new adventures; Doctor Who: A Life of Crime, Doctor Who: Fiesta of the Damned and Doctor Who: Maker of Demons.
Further Main Range entries in 2016 include a new set of single episode tales with Doctor Who: The Memory Bank and Other Stories starring Peter Davison. The year is rounded off the return of the Sixth Doctor and Constance Clarke (Miranda Raison) in a new trilogy of adventures - Doctor Who: Order, Doctor Who: Absolute Power and Doctor Who: Quicksilver - with two titles released in December.
