The Doctor Who Book Club Podcast
Episode 29: State of Change

We bring you May’s episode in mid-June, as real life gave both of us a swift kick in the pants last month.  Next up is State of Change by Christopher Bulis, a Virgin Missing Adventure featuring the Sixth Doctor and Peri.  From the back cover:

‘In less than 25 years the Romans have invented electricity generation, airships, radio and who knows what else.  Is that reasonable?’

Ancient Egypt, 41BC.  The Doctor and Peri watch as Cleopatra’s pleasure barge glides up the Nile in preparation for her fateful meeting with Mark Anthony.  And an alien presence observes the TARDIS, waits for it to dematerialize, then pounces.

When the time ship lands, the Doctor and Peri find themselves in ancient Rome, in the tomb of Cleopatra.  But something is very wrong.  The tomb walls depict steam-driven galleys and other disturbing anachronisms.  The Roman Empire is preparing for a devastating war – using weapons from the future capable of destroying the entire world.

Bulis has written a number of Doctor Who novels, some for the Missing Adventures range, including The Sorcerer’s Apprentice, The Eye of the Giant, Twilight of the Gods, and A Device of Death.  This marks his first book in the series.

Don’t forget that, at the time of this release, Mad Norwegian Press’ Queers Dig Time Lords will be available for sale, with an article written on podcasting by none other than our own humble co-host Erik!  Buy your copy today!  (We already did.)
