Old enemies return in a new novel

BBC Books have announced a new original novel featuring the Eleventh Doctor & his companions Amy & Rory. The novel, 'The Silent Stars Go By' is written by Dan Abnett & will see the Doctor come up against some old adversaries - The Ice Warriors.

For centuries the Maintainers have worked. With no help from other worlds, they subsist on the food they can grow and that’s little enough. But their purpose, their whole life is to maintain the machines that will one day make their world as habitable as old Earth.

Life used to be hard. Now as their crops fail, livestock sickens, and the temperature drops, it’s becoming impossible. This year’s Winter Season Feast won’t be the usual celebration. It’s not a time for optimism or hope – and it’s not a time to welcome unexpected guests. The Doctor, Amy and Rory find a society breaking apart under the strain. Tensions are mounting, old rivalries are coming to the fore, people are dying...

And then the Doctor’s old enemies the Ice Warriors make their move. With the cold-hearted threat of invasion, the real battle for survival begins. Or does it? The Doctor begins to suspect that behind everything lies a deadlier, and even more chilling danger...

The novel will be released as a hardback on September 29th 2011 with an RRP of £12.99. You can pre-order it now from Amazon for only £9.74
