The spear of destiny by Marcus Sedgwick, the third short story to celebrate 50 years of Doctor Who

The Spear of Destiny by Marcus Sedgwick is the third book from the series that celebrate the Doctor Who 50th year, it follows on from Second Doctor story, The Nameless City by Michael Scott, and A Big Hand for the Doctor by Eoin Colfer, a First Doctor adventure from Eoin Colfer.

The Third Doctor and Jo Grant are trying to track down the magical spear of Odin when they find themselves caught up in a vicious battle between two Viking tribes. But one of the Vikings is even more dangerous than he appears to be. Can the Doctor stop the spear getting into the wrong hands before it’s too late?

Marcus Sedgwick commented: “To me, Jon Pertwee is the quintessential Doctor – a hero of both thought and action. When I was young he seemed like a schoolmaster you were a bit afraid of, and yet really liked at the same time. Bringing him back to life and pitting him against his old nemesis, The Master, was a huge thrill for me and I hope fans will recognise Jon in the pages of my story.
