We continue our interviews with the authors of the Temporal Logbook II, and chat with Nic Ford who has penned the Second Doctor story, The Clockwork Dreamer Sings Songs to the Stars.



All of us involved in the forthcoming Temporal Logbook II are extremely excited today.

“Why?” you ask.

Because we’ve been given the go-ahead and we can officially reveal the cover for the second collection of stories.

Created by the extremely talented John Gordon, who works with us as Pencil Tip’s in-house illustrator and designer and has been responsible for the covers of several Pencil Tip books including The Temporal Logbook and the Sapphire & Steel Omnibus.

New Short-Story Collection for 2018

Pencil Tip Publishing is pleased to announce our latest Doctor Who-themed charity short-story collection, Sarah Jane Smith: Roving Reporter – an affectionate tribute to the character and the actress who played her.

Sarah Jane Smith is without a doubt, one of the most popular of the Doctor’s companions. An investigative journalist who traveled with the Doctor, she was confident, courageous, compassionate and inquisitive. She had a sharp mind and tongue, and was unabashedly feminist – the perfect strong female character, and a positive example to young girls everywhere.

Elisabeth Sladen was the talented actress who brought the character of Sarah Jane Smith to life supporting the third (Jon Pertwee) and fourth (Tom Baker) Doctors from 1973-76. Sladen’s character later set of on her own in K9 and Company (1981), Downtime (1995), and the Sarah Jane Smith audio series (2002-06), produced by Big Finish Productions. Her performance gained her a multitude of adoring fans, loved wherever Doctor Who has aired, and extending across new generations through her popular performance of the character in The Sarah Jane Adventures (2007-11).

This special publication will feature a selection of new adventures for Sarah Jane as written by a selection of Doctor Who fandom’s best original writing, artwork, and more.

All net proceeds from this publication will be donated in support of the British Columbia Cancer Foundation, the fundraising partner of the BC Cancer Agency and the largest charitable funder of cancer research in this province. The BCCF enable donors to make contributions to leading-edge research that has a direct impact on improvements to cancer care for patients in British Columbia.
