Series Of Short Stories Announced To Celebrate Doctor Who 50th Anniversary


A new collection of short stories featuring all eleven incarnations of the Doctor are to be released as part of Doctor Who's 50th Anniversary celebrations.
The eleven "eshorts" will each be written by a different children's author and will feature one of the Doctor's, including the Tenth Doctor as portrayed by David Tennant in the acclaimed TV series.

The author of the first book will be revealed on the Official Doctor Who Facebook page on Monday 7th January, and their story will be published on Wednesday 23rd January. Each release will also include a promotional video of the story's author which will be made available on the BBC Worldwide Doctor Who YouTube channel, starting on Friday 11th January.
The stories will be priced at £1.99 and in November, once the monthly series has concluded, a full paperback collection will be published by Puffin, available for £7.99. 
Penguin Children's publisher, Juliet Matthews, said: "Penguin Children's has been the proud home of children's Doctor Who publishing for eight years and to be part of the 50th anniversary is incredibly exciting.
"We are delighted to have eleven sensational children's authors involved in the series, all bringing an individual style, imagination and interpretation to their e-short tribute to the Doctor. This is a who's who of children's fiction coming together to celebrate the much-loved Doctor Who."
