The Eighth Doctor Sourcebook, our next supplement for Doctor Who: Adventures in Time and Space, is winging its way to subscribers. Not only does the sourcebook act as a guide to the Eighth Doctor's televised adventures, but it also contains a complete campaign – The Doom of the Daleks!
For those of you that haven’t taken advantage of our subscription offer, you’ll have to wait a little while longer – but we thought we’d talk a little more about what you can find inside.
As with the other Doctor Sourcebooks, The Eighth Doctor Sourcebook takes an in-depth look at this incarnation of the Doctor, featuring a look at the era he was active (in this case, the turn of the Millennium and the Last Great Time War), his companions (with character sheets for Grace, Change Lee and Cass, and hints at companions unseen but not forgotten), enemies (the Master) and ‘allies’ (the Sisterhood of Karn).
It also presents both of the Doctor’s televised adventures – the Doctor Who TV Movie and The Night of the Doctor – giving an overview of the action and themes of both, exploring how you can use them in your games. There are suggestions for further adventures based on the events depicted.
Unlike the other Doctor Sourcebooks, The Eighth Doctor Sourcebook contains a wealth of new material for you to use in your games, in the form of a complete 12-part campaign entitled The Doom of the Daleks. In the campaign, set during the Time War, the Doctor has been assassinated by the Daleks’ most insidious weapon – the Temporal Exterminator. This device unravels the victim’s time line in both directions – forwards and backwards – slowly wiping them from time and space. The Doctor needs his companions’ help or else he won’t just die, he’ll never have existed…
Eleven of the twelve adventures in the campaign are inspired by previous adventures of the Doctor, taking the companions back to his greatest triumphs or to face his greatest foes as they retrace his steps to find the moment he was struck by the Temporal Exterminator – and hopefully stop the Daleks before they can use it to exterminate the Doctor!
