Book Two in the New The Doctor Omega Chronicles Series!
“The point is, my delicious eye-candy, that I am none other than the performer and prognosticator known throughout seven galaxies, thousands of star systems and worlds too great to enumerate as… Mister Whisper!”
Doctor Omega is aboard his time ship the Galopin, outside of the normal boundaries of space and time waiting to return to the universe he knows.
His travelling companion, the mysterious adventuress Miss Midnite, is very, very bored. The offer of a biscuit from the Doctor is not quite the excitement she craves.
But she needn’t worry as they find themselves plunged into a search for the tomb of Undying Khalyr who may be “undying”, but there are plenty of other corpses on the journey as they brave planetary hurricanes, death traps, treachery – and then the secret of Khalyr himself…
The second in a fantastical new series of novels, written by eminent Doctor Who author John Peel with Andrew Skilleter, celebrated Doctor Who artist and series developer.
Doctor Who? Doctor Omega!
‘Doctor Omega’ was created by the writer Arnould Galopin (1865-1934) in the early 1900s. His description of the character and the accompanying line drawings bear an uncanny resemblance to a certain Time Lord known as ‘The Doctor’…
So – Who is Doctor Omega?
Doctor Omega was the creation of writer Arnould Galopin in 1906. In his story, the Doctor, his assistant, Fred and his neighbour, Denis Borel, travel in the Doctor’s amazing spaceship, the Cosmos to Mars. There they encounter the bizarre Martians, are involved in a war and finally manage to return home.
The similarity that Doctor Omega bears to the first Doctor, played by William Hartnell – long white hair, rather old-fashioned clothing, walking stick – and a rather arrogant and belligerent manner, is extraordinary. Could it be that Doctor Omega played a vital part in the creation of Doctor Who?
