The Well-Mannered War
The edges of space, the far distant future, an era even the Time Lords are not supposed to visit. Laid claim to by disputing factions of humans and Chelonians, the planet Barclow has become the catalyst for an unusual war. In two hundred years of hostilities not a shot has been fired, and the opposing combatants are the best of friends. But when the Doctor, Romana and K9 arrive, they discover the peace is not going to last. Something dangerous is happening behind the scenes. An election loom. Bodies are piling up. Tensions are growing. Someone, somewhere is trying to make this well-mannered war very angry indeed. Only the Time-travellers can save the day. But that might be their biggest mistake. One of two releases this month adapting popular Doctor Who novels from the 1990's. The Well-Mannered War was originally written by Gareth Roberts - now a TV writer on shows including Doctor Who itself. Tim McInnerny is a familiar face from TV and film, though to British audiences is probably best know as Captain Darling from Blackadder Goes Forth. John Leeson, the voice of robot dog K9 is now a regarded writer on the subject of food and wine.

Doctor Who: I am a Dalek
Equipped with space suits, golf clubs and a flag, the Doctor and Rose are planning to live it up, Apollo mission-style, on the Moon. But the TARDIS has other plans, landing them instead in a village on the south coast of England; a picture-postcard sort of place where nothing much happens. Until now...An archaeological dig has turned up a Roman mosaic, circa AD 70, depicting mythical scenes, grapes and a Dalek. A few days later a young woman, rushing for work, is knocked over and killed by a bus, then comes back to life. It's not long before all hell breaks loose, and the Doctor and Rose must use all their courage and cunning against an alien enemy and a not-quite-alien accomplice who are intent on destroying humanity. Featuring the Doctor and Rose as played by David Tennant and Billie Piper in the hit Doctor Who series from BBC Television.

Doctor Who: City of Death
The Doctor takes Romana for a holiday in Paris - a city which, like a fine wine, has a bouquet all its own. Especially if you visit during one of the vintage years. But the TARDIS takes them to 1979, a table-wine year, a year whose vintage is soured by cracks - not in their wine glasses but in the very fabric of time itself. Soon the Time Lords are embroiled in an audacious alien scheme which encompasses home-made time machines, the theft of the Mona Lisa, the resurrection of the much-feared Jagaroth race, and the beginning (and quite possibly the end) of all life on Earth. Aided by British private detective Duggan, whose speciality is thumping people, the Doctor and Romana must thwart the machinations of the suave, mysterious Count Scarlioni - all twelve of him - if the human race has any chance of survival. But then, the Doctor's holidays tend to turn out a bit like this. Featuring the Fourth Doctor as played by Tom Baker, City of Death is a novel by James Goss based on the 1979 Doctor Who story written by Douglas Adams under the pen-name David Agnew. City of Death is one of the best-loved serials in the show's 50-year history and was watched by over 16 million viewers when first broadcast.

Count Us In: How to Make Maths Real for All of Us
Mathematics, like language, is a universal experience. Every society counts and is empowered by its ability to count and to measure. The mathematical processes developed within various cultures differ widely, and Count Us In explores these cultural links, drawing examples from the author's personal experiences. The process of counting, like the process of communicating with words, is common to all societies worldwide but, just as there is a rich variety of languages, so too is there a rich variety in methods of counting and of recording numbers - methods that have developed over centuries to meet the needs of various groups of people. The narrative of this book takes the form of a collection of short stories based on the author's personal experience, linked together by a number of sub-themes. As a popular book on mathematics and on the personalities who created that mathematics, there are no prerequisites beyond the reader's rudimentary and possibly hazy recollection of primary-school mathematics and a curiosity to know more.

Doctor Who: Shada
The Doctor's old friend and fellow Time Lord Professor Chronotis has retired to Cambridge University - where nobody will notice if he lives for centuries. But now he needs help from the Doctor, Romana and K-9. When he left Gallifrey he took with him a few little souvenirs - most of them are harmless. But one of them is extremely dangerous. The Worshipful and Ancient Law of Gallifrey isn't a book for Time Tots. It is one of the Artefacts, dating from the dark days of Rassilon. It must not be allowed to fall into the wrong hands. The sinister Skagra most definitely has the wrong hands. He wants the book. He wants to discover the truth behind Shada. And he wants the Doctor's mind...Based on the scripts for the original television series by the legendary Douglas Adams, Shada retells an adventure that never made it to the screen. It is read by Lalla Ward, who played Romana in the 1979 BBC TV series, with John Leeson as the voice of K9. 10 CDs. 11 hrs 31 mins.

Blacked Out: The Inside Story of the Lions in New Zealand 2005
After England's World Cup success in 2003 and the disappointment in New Zealand at their own team's performance in that competition, the visit of the Lions was always going to be seen by the All Blacks as the best way to restore their standing in world rugby. It was also a clash of the coaches with Graham Henry, chosen as Lions coach in 2001 ahead of Clive Woodward, this time leading the All Blacks against the recently elevated Sir Clive. Mick Cleary tells the inside story of an eventful six weeks that was followed in New Zealand by 20,000 travelling supporters and by millions on television. He revives memories of the highs and lows of the tour. He discusses the management style of Sir Clive Woodward, his strategy and his team selection. He also examines the relationship between the tour management and the media and also the partnership between the referee and his touch judges in controlling infringements both on and off the ball. Blacked Out describes how the All Blacks dominated the series with a power and a passion that was too much for the Lions who never played together with the same confidence and conviction. There was, however, no doubting the commitment of the Lions players in trying to match up to the aspirations and expectations of their supporters, and they battled to the end. Despite defeat for the Lions in the first two Tests, their resilient fans continued to enjoy New Zealand hospitality, and the red army massed at Eden Park in a final attempt to lift their team to a consolation win. But it was all in vain. The All Blacks were simply too good and Rico Gear's runaway try in the dying moments was an appropriate finale to the series. The outcome of the tour may have been a disappointment to Lions fans, but the watching world witnessed an impressive resurgence in New Zealand rugby and some fine individual performances especially from Dan Carter, Richie McCaw, Chris Jack and All Black captain Tana Umaga.

Whatever Happened to Billy Parks
2014 JERWOOD FICTION UNCOVERED PRIZE WINNER LONGLISTED FOR THE 2014 GORDON BURN PRIZE October 17th 1973: the greatest disaster in the history of English football. All England had to do was beat Poland to qualify for the World Cup. They didn't. They could only draw. Left on the bench that night was a now forgotten genius, West Ham's Billy Parks: beautiful, gifted and totally flawed. Fast-forward forty years, Billy's life is a testament to wasted talent. His liver is failing and he earns his money selling football memories on the after-dinner circuit to anyone who'll listen and buy him a drink. His family has deserted him and his friends are tired of his lies and excuses. But what if he could be given a second chance? What if he could go back in time and win the game for England? What if he was able to undo the pain he'd caused his loved ones? The Council of Football Immortals can give him that chance, just as long as he can justify himself, and his life, to them. This is the story of Billy Parks: a man who bore his genius like a dead weight and who now craves that most precious of things - the chance to put things right.
