Working obsessively, Foster has devised a way to breach the membrane of the multiverse and cross the Void into our world, unaware of the horrors that will follow in his wake…

STONE HANDS STALK THROUGH THE CRATERS OF THE SOMME…

When Gabby and the Doctor arrive by accident in No Man’s Land in July, 1916, they’re met by Corporal Jamie Colqhoun – a soldier who knows from bitter experience that there are worse things than the Jerries out in the rat-strewn trenches.

Things that drift through the smoke of a thousand cannon shells, and move only when you look away. Shadows that flit over artillery-blasted field hospitals and throw their terrifying wings over the living. Statues that steal your life in an instant.

The Weeping Angels.

But in a conflict where the life of young men is cheap, and thousands die every day – are the Angels actually offering salvation?

Trapped in the midst of a flock of starving Angels, the Doctor faces his most challenging and terrifying moral dilemma yet!

Ninth Doctor Comic News!

From MTV News:


Titan Comics is to release a Ninth Doctorlimited series comic in March, which not only features the post Time War Doctor (played on screen by Christopher Eccleston) but Rose Tyler and Captain Jack, too.

The new, five-part Doctor Who mini-series is being written by “Who-ology” author Cavan Scott and drawn by Blair D. Shedd, with at least one cover painted by Alice X. Zhang. (We’re sure there will be variants).

The Ninth Doctor has of course regularly featured in comics before, in Doctor Who Magazine and Doctor Who Adventures, but this is his first Titan Comics appearance.

The launch of the mini series on 11th March ties in with the 10th anniversary of the return of “Doctor Who” to television. (No, really: it’s been back for 10 years in 2015!)

The MTV web site broke the news of the new limited series earlier today, revealing the story is titled “Weapons of Past Destruction.”

Leaving World War Two behind, The Ninth Doctor, Rose and Captain Jack discover that Time Lord technology, lost in the wake of the Time War, is being sold on the intergalactic black market!

Now the threat of a new temporal war brews on the horizon. Can the Doctor stop history repeating itself?

Cavan Scott is the author of 70 books and audio dramas including the Sunday Times Top 10 Bestseller Who-ology – The Official Doctor Who Miscellany, co-written with Mark Wright.

He has written for Doctor WhoThe BeanoJudge DreddSkylandersAngry Birds and Warhammer 40,000 as well as his own novels and short stories.

With the Doctor half the man he should be, under the draining influence of an alien tourist trap, Gabriella is left to shoulder the burden of saving him, the planet, and the future of art in our galaxy - and all on her first off-world trip, no less!

Trapped in a terrifying creative retreat, where what was once beautiful has been rendered corrupt and horrifying, is Gabby strong enough to reverse whatever has been done to the Doctor and save an intergalactic artistic community from itself? You’d better hope so!

And who, or what, are the deadly Consultants… and what plans do they have for the Doctor?!
