France in the 1920s and Doctor Omega is on the brink of a fantastical voyage. But he’s reckoned without the interference of a rich and famous aviatrix.
Who is the mysterious Miss Midnite and what does she want with the Doctor?
She is far from what she seems – and when she seems. Now they are thrown together, lost in space and time, never knowing where they will emerge or what they will face.
A fantastical new series of novels, written by author John Peel – Power of the Daleks, Star Trek: The Next Generation with Andrew Skilleter ‘Doctor Who Target Books, BBC VHS cover artist’.
‘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?
