Doctor How

Suppose the BBC had been told the wrong story back in 1963? Kipling wrote about the six Time Keepers in his poem Six Honest Serving Men:

I keep six honest serving-men
(They taught me all I knew);
Their names are What and Why and When
And How and Where and Who.

Doctor How is the last of the six Time Keepers doing his duty. After his brother, Who, sold his story to the BBC, their four cousins became disillusioned and dropped out. For fifty years, How has stood alone against the forces of darkness.

Doctor How is a five-volume sci-fi parody from the pen of Mark Speed. Book one – Doctor How and the Illegal Aliens is due out on March 13th.

Doctor How and the Rings of Uranus

Doctor How and the Rings of Uranus
The famous red ring of Uranus is missing! It has to be in place for astronomer William Herschel to discover it, or humanity’s timeline will be corrupted. All the Doctor and Kevin have to do is travel back to 1789 to blow up a disused helium-3 mining ship which was accidentally left orbiting Uranus. What could be more fun than a simple demolition job?

However, they weren’t counting on an awkward computer, or alien super-predator Trinity being so dopey after a night out on the prowl feasting on fresh flesh… An easy afternoon turns into a deadly race against time.



Doctor How and the Illegal Aliens

Doctor How and the Illegal Aliens

Doctor How and the Illegal Aliens – out March 13th

Doctor How’s famous megalomaniac brother Doctor Who sold his fictional life story to the BBC half a century ago, painting himself as a lone hero. Disillusioned, their four cousins dropped out. For fifty years, Doctor How has held the line against the forces of darkness and stupidity. And he’s not that happy, since you ask.

Illegal aliens try to hack How’s Spectrel (TARDIS is a very rude word where he comes from), just as he suspects his estranged cousin Where has been compromised. When reports come in of mysterious attacks by alien creatures, Doctor How has to rely on his new companion Kevin, a petty criminal from south London, and Trinity, a morphing super-predator, as he counters this threat to humanity’s existence. Bungling agents from MI16, long desperate to capture the Time Keeper’s technology, hamper How’s efforts to combat the alien menace. Can Doctor How keep ahead of MI16, save Where and combat the alien threat?
