12th Doctor Story “Lights Out”
The Guardian has confirmed that author Holly Black (The Spiderwick Chronicles) has written a 12th Doctor story in Puffin’s eshort series of Doctor Who adventures entitled “Lights Out”.
Black said: “It’s a huge honour to get to write a story in such an amazing science fiction universe, one which makes for an ultimate writer’s playground with it’s flexibility across time and space.”
“I am a big fan of the series and of the Doctor himself, our alien hero who reminds us over and over of our humanity and carries a screwdriver instead of a gun.”
Black joins authors Eoin Colfer, Michael Stott, Marcus Sedgwick, Philip Reeve, Patrick Ness, Richelle Mead, Malorie Blackman, Alex Scarrow, Charlie Higson and Neil Gaiman, whose stories were released throughout 2013 to celebrate each Doctor.
A new paperback anthology containing the story, “12 Doctors, 12 Stories”, will be released 23 October 2014.
