New Doctor Who books, yay!!!  
Three brand new Tenth Doctor books will be coming out in October of 2008 featuring the incredible Donna Noble as his companion. One more will be released in January of 2009. I miss her already, so these books will be very welcome.

Ghosts of India by Mark Morris
Synopsis: The Doctor and Donna go to India in 1947 and meet Ghandi.

Shining Darkness by Mark Michalowski
Synopsis: Two and a half million light years from earth the Doctor and Donna must defeat The Cult of the Shining Darkness.

The Doctor Trap by Simon Messingham
Synopsis: A ruthless hunter posing as a nineteenth-century nobleman decided the Last of the Time Lords would make the perfect prey.

Beautiful Chaos by Gary Russell
Synopsis: Not yet released

Also coming out in October is a collection of comics featuring the Tenth Doctor and Rose. Squee!
The Betrothal of Sontar

Fascinatingly enough, a new Martha book will be coming out on January 9th, 2009. The plot sounds like something you'd find in high quality fanfiction, which could be a very good thing.
The Story of Martha by Dan Abnett
Synopsis: Follow Martha Jones as she travels the earth preaching about the Doctor during the entire "year that never was."

Also, Four Tenth Doctor books will soon be published that feature no companion whatsoever. It is not clear however if these books take place between "Voyage of the Damned" and "Partners and Crime," or after "Journey's End." The first book comes out on January 9th, while the last three don't get released until April 16th. The idea of him all by himself kind of depresses me, but I may get the first book just to see how it turns out.

The Eyeless by Lance Parkin
Synopsis: The Doctor must battle alone to destroy a weapon of mass destruction while dealing with the ghosts of those it killed.

The Slitheen Excursion by Simon Guerrier
Synopsis: The Slitheen have a new tourist business where they send Aliens to ancient Greece to pretend to be Gods.

Prisoner of the Daleks by Trevor Baxendale
Synopsis: The Doctor is stranded on a space ship with some bounty hunters and their live Dalek prisoner.

Judgement Of The Judoon by Colin Brake
Synopsis: The Doctor must work together with the intergalactic police, the Judoon, to stop the Invisible assassin from terrorizing the sprawling spaceport, New Memphis.

I really want to read the Martha book and she's not my favorite companion. (No hate, just no particular love) The idea is just such a fantastic one. *uses single solitary Martha icon*

And Rose FTW! I'm so excited. They published the 9th Doctor and Rose comics and the Tenth Doctor and Martha ones, but not the Tenth Doctor and Rose one's yet, so I'm so glad they're finally doing it. Maybe they just wanted to wait so it would be extra special. I'd like to think so.

Yay for Doctor/Rose collection of comics!! :D

I'm really looking forward to the Donna ones and the the Doctor all by himself... to see where they take his character.

Double yay for Rose!

And yeah, I've been watching and waiting for Donna books, so I actually squealed when I saw them. Plus, I miss her already, so it will be nice to get a few more adventures.

I wish I knew when the solo Doctor books took place. It would help me gage if I want to read them or not.

David-Tennant.com actually has some descriptions on what the last three solo Doctor stories will be about, in case you haven't seen them - just need to scroll down a bit.

Unfortunately they don't say when it takes place for the Doctor. Logically I would have to think that they are set after JE but there's a chance that it could be something from before seeing as the Martha book is set during that year that she was away.

And yep! I miss Donna as well. I'm glad we have the books. :D

Thanks so much for the heads up at David-Tennant.com. I've updated the "synopsis" sections in this posting to reflect this new information.

And I hope they take place after JE too, because that's the dynamic I'm more interested in, but I suppose after Voyage of the Damned works too.
