The Forgotten – Remembered…

I knew this was coming out, but I’d been hearing talk of the middle of April. However, today people have been telling me that the new hardcover release of Doctor Who: The Forgotten, with a new cover by original series cover artist Nick Roche and with an extensive afterword by yours truly is already falling through their letterboxes a week [&hellip
