Note: A print-on-demand edition (linked via the Lulu logo above) was released in March 2017 to allow Australia/NZ readers to order the book with much cheaper postage costs. It is identical to the original version, except for having a glossy cover instead of the original's matt cover.
Intended as the first in a series of online animated dramas, Scream of the Shalka (2003) was the first attempt to redefine Doctor Who for the 21st century. Following a traditional narrative formula, it rethinks the Doctor, the companion and the Master in ways that anticipate the later revived series. A victim of timing as much as of its own flaws, it remains a fascinating glimpse into an alternative vision for Doctor Who.

This book includes the previously unpublished storyline for Simon Clark's sequel, 'Blood of the Robots'.
THE BLACK ARCHIVE:
"A grandly ambitious thing to attempt with something as exhaustively detailed as (Who). But they actually manage it. Treat your bookshelf."
