To celebrate the launch of ‘Now We Are Six Hundred’ the author and illustrator will discuss the book at Foyles bookstore in London. The event will take place on Wednesday 13th September 2017 from 7pm – 8pm at Foyles, 107 Charing Cross Road.

What does ‘Dalek’ rhyme with? How do you draw the curtain at the end of the universe? Foyles presents an adventure in rhyme and space with author James Goss and former Doctor Who writer and executive producer Russell T Davies, as they celebrate the release of the first book of Time Lord verse ‘Now We Are Six Hundred’.

Now We Are Six Hundred by James Goss with Illustrations by Russell T Davies

Russell and James have a lifelong love of Doctor Who. Russell revived the series in 2005, and James has adapted the work of Douglas Adams. They’ve now found a whole new way of looking at the Doctor, in this charmingly-illustrated collection of funny and whimsical poetry. Russell and James will be joined by the presenter of hit YouTube series Doctor Who: The Fan Show, Christel Dee, as they discuss poetry, Daleks, Cybermen and all things close to a Who fan’s heart(s).

Tickets cost £9 per ticket or £15 including a copy of the book for signing on the night.

A gentle and humorous riff on the classic Now We Are Six, the book is a collection of charming, funny and whimsical poems that celebrate the joys, sorrows and wonders of Time Lord life. Written by author James Goss, the book features illustrations by former Doctor Who Executive Producer Russell T Davies – his first role as an illustrator, using the comic artist skills he developed in his youth.
