Eoin Colfer Confirmed as Writing First Doctor Who 50th Anniversary eBook Story

To celebrate the 50th anniversary, a special ebook chronicling each Doctor will be released on the 23rd of every month leading up to the big day in November. Artemis Fowl-creator Eoin Colfer gets the honour of tackling William Hartnell’s First Doctor.

A Big Hand For The Doctor will be released on iTunes and Amazon on the 23rd of January priced at £1.99. The prospect of various world renowned authors coming on differing Doctors is exciting for any whovian. Just the thought of their favourite writer being teamed with their favourtie Doctor is tantalising.

A Big Hand for The Doctor’s blurb states:

“London, 1900. The First Doctor is missing both his hand and his granddaughter, Susan. Faced with the search for Susan, a strange beam of soporific light, and a host of marauding Soul Pirates intent on harvesting human limbs, the Doctor is promised a dangerous journey into a land he may never forget…”

I am a fan of The First Doctor and particularly liked his travels with Susan, Ian and Barbara. This sounds like it is going to be a lot of fun and a great start to the year for what promises to be an amazing year for Doctor Who fans.
