Last Of The Posts

This is Bad Wolf PR's 409th post to date and I'm afraid to say it is its last because this site is to be closed down. The reason is basically because of the lack of time i have to run this blog or any blogs anymore. Bad Wolf PR was founded on the 13th February 2007 when i had a mad idea of starting a Doctor Who Blog which would update you on the latest Doctor Who News. During the early days i was often informed with news by Mark who now runs a brilliant blog called Tardis And Torchwood Treasures. As times went on i met a person called Rob who has helped with news and features for this blog which has been most helpful. Rob runs many blogs including Life On Mars.TV and Ashes To Ashes.TV. As for me i will still be around and about as i will continue to make Music Videos which can all be found on my You Tube Channel Here as well as chatting to anyone who wishes to speak to me. So i guess now its goodbye for me and blogging but could i thank every single visitor to this site and helper you've all been absolutely fantastic.

April Book Covers

The covers for the three Doctor Who BBC Books, due for release on the 14th April 2008, have now been revealed. The titles of these three books are Martha In The Mirror, Snowglobe 7 and The Many Hands. The covers and a short description of each book can be seen below.

Martha in the Mirror Justin Richards Castle Extremis – whoever holds it can control the provinces either side that have been at war for centuries. Now the castle is about to play host to the signing of a peace treaty. But as the Doctor and Martha find out, not everyone wants the war to end. Who is the strange little girl who haunts the castle? What is the secret of the book the Doctor finds, its pages made from thin, brittle glass? Who is the hooded figure that watches from the shadows? And what is the secret of the legendary Mortal Mirror? The Doctor and Martha don’t have long to find the answers – an army is on the march, and the castle will soon be under siege once more...

Snowglobe 7 by Mike Tucker Earth, 2099. Global warming is devastating the climate. The polar ice caps are melting. In a desperate attempt at preservation the Governments of the world have removed vast sections of the Arctic and Antarctic and set them inside huge domes across the world. The Doctor and Martha arrive in Snowglobe 7 in the Middle East, hoping for peace and relaxation. But they soon discover that it’s not only ice and snow that has been preserved beneath the Dome. While Martha struggles to help with an infection sweeping through the holidaymakers the Doctor discovers an alien threat that has lain hidden since the last ice age. A threat that is starting to thaw.

The Many Hands by Dale Smith Edinburgh, 1759. The Nor' Loch is being filled in. If you ask the soldiers there, they'll tell you it's a stinking cesspool that the city can do without. But that doesn't explain why the workers won't go near the place without an armed guard. That doesn't explain why they whisper stories about the loch giving up its dead, about the minister who walked into his church twelve years after he died… It doesn’t explain why, as they work, they whisper about a man called the Doctor. And about the many hands of Alexander Monro.

This report also ties together some other rumours that have been around recently about Series 4 of Doctor Who.

DOCTOR Who bosses are set to call back FOUR of the Time Lord’s favourite assistants – including Billie Piper – for a sensational showdown. The old cast members will be reunited to help the Doc fight evil Dalek creator Davros in an explosive finale to the next series.Leading the way in the line-up will be Billie (Piper) as Rose Tyler along with the rest of the Tyler family; they will hook up with the Tardis traveller’s latest assistants Martha Jones and Donna Noble. Also on hand to help out the Doc will be his old companion Sarah Jane Smith as well as Torchwood boss Captain Jack Harkness. Even the Time Lord’s dog K-9 will make an appearance. The TV source said: "This is the daddy of all shows. The writer Russell T Davies really wants to pull out all the stops for the finale next year."
