Marcus Sedgwick revealed as third author in Doctor Who's 50th Anniversary eBook series
His short story, entitled The Spear Of Destiny, will be released on the 23rd, featuring The Third Doctor and Jo Grant, priced at £1.99. A promotional video will be released on the 11th.
The Third Doctor and Jo Grant are trying to track down the magical spear of Odin when they find themselves caught up in a vicious battle between two Viking tribes. But one of the Vikings is even more dangerous than he appears to be. Can the Doctor stop the spear getting into the wrong hands before it’s too late?
Marcus Sedgwick commented: “To me, Jon Pertwee is the quintessential Doctor – a hero of both thought and action. When I was young he seemed like a schoolmaster you were a bit afraid of, and yet really liked at the same time. Bringing him back to life and pitting him against his old nemesis, The Master,( (highlight to reveal spoiler) was a huge thrill for me and I hope fans will recognise Jon in the pages of my story.
