More Doctor Who for BBC Books

BBC Books has acquired a further Doctor Who title, written by Stephen Baxter, featuring the Second Doctor as played by Patrick Troughton.

Senior editorial director Albert DePetrillo bought world rights from Christopher Schelling at Selectric Artists in New York, with The Wheel of Ice to be published as a £16.99 hardback on 16th August 2012.

DePetrillo said: "Stephen Baxter is one of the leading lights of British science fiction, and I was thrilled when he decided to write for our Doctor Who list.

"The Wheel of Ice is a delight—a bold Second Doctor adventure with elements of the harder SF that is Stephen's forte. It's fitting that our first original adventure for a past Doctor since 2005 should be a book as special as this."
