Out now are four new chapters in the Gallifrey saga telling the tale of how the Time War originated and how Gallifrey was plunged into conflict with the Daleks – and not everyone will survive.
Gallifrey: Time War, a four story box set, sees how the Time Lords and the Daleks have opposed one another across millennia. But now their conflict tips into an all-out Time War, and nowhere across the universe of space-time is safe.
Battle plans will be drawn, allies recruited, and innocents caught in the crossfire.
Gallifrey is going to war, and the cosmos will never be the same again.
1. Celestial Intervention by David Llewellyn
The Temporal Powers are under threat. It is only a matter of time before the Daleks attack. Now CIA Coordinator, Romana, must protect the interests of Gallifrey, while dealing with demands from President Livia and an increasingly powerful War Council.
2. Soldier Obscura by Tim Foley
Braxiatel has always planned for contingencies. As hostilities escalate, he takes Ace into a deadly region of spacetime – The Obscura – to locate an ancient research station. But Ace is about to learn more about Irving Braxiatel than anyone should know. Some soldiers are ready for this fight, but some will not make it through the first round.
3. The Devil You Know by Scott Handcock
The Time War has begun in earnest, and Romana must think the unthinkable. For a most dangerous mission, she selects the most dangerous warrior – the Master. But he will not be alone. Leela accompanies her old enemy as they begin an unusual interrogation.
What does Finnian Valentine know? And can Leela and the Master ever truly be on the same side?
4. Desperate Measures by Matt Fitton
The Dalek Emperor attacks a vital Time Lord outpost. Victory would be a devastating blow to Gallifrey.
Romana is caught in the machinations of a President who sees control slipping away. Is it time to bargain with the War Council, or perhaps to parlay with even more dangerous parties?
The Time War has barely begun, and for Gallifrey, desperate times are already here...
Producer and director Scott Handcock talks all things Time War in this month’s Vortex magazine: “After the previous release, Enemy Lines, I honestly thought that was it for me and Gallifrey. We’d sort of completed that journey for those characters and had always been flirting around the edges of the Time War without ever addressing it, so I struggled to see what we could do to feel fresh without tackling the Time War head-on.
“Thankfully, David Richardson already had plans for the next stage of the Gallifrey saga to be exactly that, so I leapt at the chance!”
And don’t forget you can now get the entire Gallifrey collection on CD and on download.
