'Doctor Who' Fans Offer 14,000 Free Books To UK Schools
Speaking of "it’s nice to do something nice for someone" this is pretty cool:


When David Dovey came across a post on eBay proffering some 11,000 mint condition Doctor Who novelisations in a massive job lot, he immediately considered what his next best step would be.
So, while talking to a few friends on the internet, a plan was hatched. They would club together and buy the books, and then donate them, in batches of six or so, to schools.
In the end, the auction finished at just £656 (around $1015), and the friends made a website and invited schools to get in touch if they wanted some of the books.
Already some 300 schools have signed up, and 1,400 of the books have been sent out. Through various donations their original haul has increased to 14,000, and this is just the beginning. The consortium hope to encourage all Doctor Who fans to donate one book to their nearest school, whether it’s part of their collection or one that has been specially purchased.

The Doctor Who 50th Anniversary Book Collection now available
via DoctorWho.tv:


To celebrate the 50th anniversary of Doctor Who, BBC Books are reissuing eleven classic Doctor Who novels - one for each Doctor - from across their fiction range. Repackaged with new introductions and bold new covers, they’re not only a collectable set for fans, but a brilliant introduction to the depth and range of the Doctor Who fiction universe.
Titles include classic classic TV novel Remembrance of the Daleks, as well as original novels from Mark Gatiss, Terrance Dicks and Dan Abnett.
All eleven novels are available to buy now from Random House in paperback or ebook.
Ben Aaronovitch, Dan Abnett, Terrance Dicks and Gary Russell will be signing copies of their novels at Forbidden Planet in London, on Saturday 9 March. More details about the signings here (this link takes you to a site beyond our control).
Read the blurbs below, or see a gallery of the beautiful new 50th anniversary covers.
Ten Little Aliens Stephen Cole Deep in the heart of a hollowed-out moon the First Doctor finds a chilling secret: ten alien corpses, frozen in time at the moment of their death. They are the empire’s most wanted terrorists, and their discovery could end a war devastating the galaxy. But is the same force that killed them still lurking in the dark? And what are its plans for the people of Earth?
Dreams of Empire Justin Richards On a barren asteroid, the once-mighty Haddron Empire is on the brink of collapse, torn apart by civil war. The one man who might have saved it languishes
in prison, his enemies planning his death and his friends plotting his escape. The Second Doctor arrives as the last act of this deadly drama is being played out – and with both terrifying killers and cunning traitors to defeat, the future hangs in the balance.
Last of the Gaderene Mark Gatiss The aerodrome in Culverton has new owners, and they promise an era of prosperity for the idyllic village. But former Spitfire pilot Alex Whistler is suspicious – when black-shirted troops appear on the streets, he contacts his
old friend Brigadier Lethbridge-Stewart at UNIT. The Third Doctor is sent to investigate – and soon uncovers a sinister plot to colonise the Earth. The Gaderene are on their way…
Festival of Death Jonathan Morris The Beautiful Death is the ultimate theme-park ride: a sightseeing tour of the afterlife. But something has gone wrong, and when the Fourth Doctor arrives in the aftermath of the disaster, he is congratulated for saving the population from destruction – something he hasn’t actually done yet. He has no choice but to travel back in time and discover how he became a hero. And then he finds out. He did it by sacrificing his life.
Fear of the Dark Trevor Baxendale On a moon of the ruined planet Akoshemon, an age-old terror is about to be reborn. Something that remembers the spiral of war, pestilence and deprivation – and rejoices in it. The Fifth Doctor joins a team of archaeologists searching for evidence of the planet’s infamous past, and uncovers more than just ancient history. Forced to confront his own worst fears, even the Doctor will be pushed to breaking point – and beyond.
Players Terrance Dicks Arriving on the sun-baked veldt in the middle of the Boer War, the Sixth Doctor is soon involved in the adventures of struggling politician and war correspondent Winston Churchill. Of course, he knows Churchill is destined for great things, but unseen forces seem to be interfering with Winston’s historic career… The Doctor suspects the hidden hand of the Players, mysterious beings who regard human history as little more than a game. With time running out, can the Doctor find the right moves to defeat them?
Remembrance of the Daleks Ben Aaronovitch 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?
Earthworld Jacqueline Rayner Anji has just had the worst week of her life. She should be back at her desk, not travelling through time and space in a police box. The Eighth Doctor is supposed to be taking her home, so why are there dinosaurs outside? The Doctor doesn’t seem to know either, or else he surely would have mentioned the homicidal princesses, teen terrorists and mad robots? One thing is certain: Anji is never going to com- plain about Monday mornings in the office again.
Only Human Gareth Roberts Reports of a time disturbance lead the Ninth Doctor to modern-day London, where he discovers a Neanderthal Man, twenty-eight thousand years after his race became extinct. A trip back to the dawn of humanity only deepens the mystery: who are these strange humans from the far future now living in the distant past? The Doctor must learn the truth about the Osterberg experiment before history is changed forever.
Beautiful Chaos Gary Russell Wilfred Mott is very happy: his granddaughter, Donna, is back home, catching up with family and gossiping about her journeys, and he has just discovered a new star and had it named after him. He takes the Tenth Doctor with him to the naming ceremony. But the Doctor soon discovers something else new, and worryingly bright, in the heavens – something that is heading for Earth. It’s an ancient force from the Dark Times. And it is very, very angry…
The Silent Stars Go By Dan Abnett The winter festival is approaching for the hardy colony of Morphans, but no one is in the mood to celebrate. They’re trying to build a new life on a cold new world, but each year gets harder and harder. It’s almost as if some dark force is working against them. Then three mysterious travelers arrive out of the midwinter night, one of them claiming to be a doctor. Are they bringing the gift of salvation or doom? And what else might be lurking out there, about to wake up?
