Nein, die Vergangenheit ist noch längst nicht abgeschlossen – und so kehrt der Siebte Doktor dorthin zurück, wo alles begann: an die Coal Hill School in London im Jahr 1963. Das letzte Mal, als er hier war, hat er etwas zurückgelassen: ein mächtiges Artefakt der Time Lords, der Schlüssel zu nichts Geringerem als dem Geheimnis der Zeitreisen. Kann der Doctor das Artefakt bergen, bevor zwei rivalisierende Fraktionen der Daleks es aufspüren? Und selbst wenn – wie will er verhindern, dass sich ganz London in ein Schlachtfeld verwandelt, sobald die Daleks aufeinandertreffen?
The novel is published in English by BBC Books. Here’s the English-language synopsis…
With unfinished business to attend to, the Seventh Doctor returns to where it all began: Coal Hill School in London in 1963. Last time he was here, the Doctor left something behind – a powerful Time Lord artefact that could unlock the secrets of time travel. Can the Doctor retrieve it before two rival factions of Daleks track it down? And even if he can, how will the Doctor prevent the whole of London becoming a war zone as the Daleks meet in explosive confrontation?
Ben is also the author of the best-selling Peter Grant urban fantasy series, published in the UK by Gollancz, in Germany by DTV, and in the US by Del Rey (1-3) and DAW Books (4-6).
