06:22 pm - A nifty sounding upcoming book
The 3rd Doctor (played by Jon Pertwee) is one of the my two favorite Doctors (along with 9), and so this alone would be mildly interesting:

"Harvest of Time will feature the Third Doctor as played by Jon Pertwee and will be the first all-new adventure for a Past Doctor that BBC Books has published since the show’s return in 2005. A novel set on both 20th century Earth and far into the future, it will have the Doctor battling his arch-nemesis, The Master, to save the universe – and facing the ultimate moral crisis."

However, I'd normally also be somewhat dubious, because the few Dr. Who novelizations I've read have been fairly mediocre, except that this one is being written by Alastair Reynolds, who is my favorite living SF author, and it turns out a big fan of Doctor Who. The only downside is that it won't be out until 2013, and I also have to wait until then to get the 2nd of his so-far-excellent Poseidon series.
Current Mood: pleasedpleased

...Alastair Reynolds?!

Looks like I'm going to have to buy a Dr Who tie-in book!
