A quick whoop that Doctor Who: The Nu-Humans is out today from AudioGo. Written by myself and my long-time writing partner Mark Wright, The Nu-Humans features the 11th Doctor and is read by Rachel Cassidy (in case you haven’t noticed me going on about this A LOT over the last month.)
Here’s the blurb from the back of the lovely, shiny CD:
The Doctor, Amy and Rory are awe-struck by their first sight of “Hope Eternal”, a super-earth bigger than Earth itself with heavy gravity, volcanoes and a crust loaded with mineral deposits. But their wonder is cut short when they discover a body dumped on the ground – a huge figure with extraordinarily long arms covered in thick, purple scales.
Yet the corpse is not alien: he’s human, albeit unlike any human Amy and Rory have ever seen. The Nu-Humans have adapted their genes to fit their new environment, and formed a thriving colony. But now they are facing a terrible threat.
Can the Doctor find out who is killing Nu-Humans and why – before he, Amy and Rory are themselves tried for murder?
Written specially for audio by Cavan Scott & Mark Wright, The Nu-Humans features the Doctor, Amy and Rory as played by Matt Smith, Karen Gillan and Arthur Darvill in the acclaimed hit series from BBC Television.
You can also ready more about the adventure in an interview with me in this month’s Doctor Who Magazine, where I talk about the origins of the story and the joys of writing for the 11th Doctor.
That’s all for now I’m afraid. I know I’ve been ignoring this blog for a while now, only really popping over to shout about my latest release and what-not. Apologies for that. It has been a crazy few months. I’ve been working at Future+ on a customer publishing project and juggling a load of other mag commissions, four new scripts written with Mark, the next series of Iris Wildthyme, plus a crop of new kids’ books for Penguin. Hopefully soon I’ll be able to introduce my feet to the floor again.
