Are they alluding to Death, Dream, Desire, and the rest of the 7? Because that opens up a whole extra can of worms...
Technically, those are 'The Endless'. not the Eternals
Never let petty semantics get in the way of a good idea. That quote came to us from the Gallifreyan, via a Slitheen-Gallifreyan/Gallifreyan-Slitheen dictionary and was passed on by a drunk Slitheen in a bar on Corax 7. Their words for Endless and Eternals are almost indistinguishable, especially when muttered by someone off their head on Corax real ale.
Just remember who’s standing in your way, remember every black day I ever stopped you and then—AND THEN—do the smart thing: let somebody else try first.
Im liking the contradictions so far. The War Master cd denotes a good one about the taking of the Crucible if youve heard it. Also, the comics 'boy Master'is an interesting take. Im working on a theory to shoehorn that in.
After the first couple of installments, I was thinking that this story was trying to bring too many old faces back in at once - in fact, I've been struggling to identify some of them. But with that cliffhanger, it may just be worth it!
The situation with the additional Seasons of War books seems to have got very messy. If anyone is still waiting for the ebooks or refunds or both (the print versions aren't happening now, apparently due to BBC intervention), Declan has this morning posted on Gallifrey Base that people should email the details (what you ordered, when and how much paid) to firstname.lastname@example.org
Anyone who has already done this, it is suggested to send the email again as there have seemingly been problems with the address.
Personally, I'm still looking forward to the ebook editions -= it's just been a tad frustrating, particularly since the Facebook page was taken down.
Did we ever end up deciding what the case with the War Doctor would be? His own sourcebook or simply an addendum to the Ninth Doctor’s one?
So far as I know, we're intending to include the War Doctor within the Ninth Doctor volume. There are two or three years before we start work on it, so things may change. But at the moment, there are still too few novels and audios to justify separate sourcebooks for each:
War Doctor - one novel and four audio box-sets, plus a few comics and short stories
Ninth Doctor - six novels, one audio box-set and four standalone audios, plus comics and short stories
Off-Off Canon - The Curse of Fatal Death and Scream of the Shalka
Even as a single sourcebook, it'll likely be one of the shorter volumes.
How the sourcebook is structured is another matter - whether to have separate sections for the War Doctor and the Ninth Doctor or just combine them (with the Off-Off Canon entries at the end, as usual). I'll leave that up to Siskoid to decide.
Incidentally, you may have noticed that the first volume of the Seventh Doctor sourcebooks wasn't released last year as we'd hoped. Writing the sourcebooks is pretty much a two-person project at the moment, and both Siskoid and myself have had long periods over the last year when either one or both of us have been too busy with work commitments to find time to write. I'm in one of those periods at the moment and it's unlikely to change until the end of January at the earliest.
But the project is still very much alive. We've written around 90% of the Seventh Doctor Volume One, and the same for the Fourth Doctor Addendum which will follow it. I'd also started writing for the Seventh Doctor Volume Two before work intervened. So there's a lot of material ready - it's just a case of finding the time to finish it off.
Ah, fair enough. I thought so but I just wanted to check. Sounds like a solid plan to me. Unless of course we suddenly get an abundance of War Doctor related material which necessitates it having a separate sourcebook.
Glad to hear the EU Sourcebooks are still going ahead. It’s completely understandable considering how busy life can be. Take as much time as you need in my opinion and I’ll try my best to assist with stats in the future.
