BBC Books have announced the forthcoming publication of Doctor Who: Dark Horizons by J T Colgan, an all-new Doctor Who adventure starring The Doctor, as played by Matt Smith. Dark Horizons will be published on 7 July 2012, as a £12.99 hardback. Synopsis and cover art below:

“Now, you may or may not have noticed, but we appear to be on fire…”

On a windswept Northern shore, at the very tip of what will one day become Scotland, the islanders believe the worst they have to fear is a Viking attack. Then the burning comes. They cannot run from it. Water will not stop it. It consumes everything in its path – yet the burned still speak. The Doctor is just looking for a game on the famous Lewis chess set. Instead he encounters a people under attack from a power they cannot possibly understand. They have no weapons, no strategy and no protection against a fire sent to engulf them all. Add in some marauding Vikings with very bad timing, a kidnapped princess with a secret of her own and a TARDIS that seems to have developed an inexplicable fear of water, and they all have a battle on their hands. The islanders must take on a ruthless alien force in a world without technology; without communications; without tea that isn’t made out of bark. Still at least they have the Doctor on their side… Don’t they?
