The Doctor, a hero. The War Doctor - the version of him who turned his back on the name in order to do what had to be done. John Hurt returns as this enigmatic figure for a series set in Doctor Who's Time War...1.1 THE INNOCENT. As the Daleks mass their time fleet for a final assault on Gallifrey, something ancient is waiting for them at Omega One. And a sacrifice must be made. Arch-manipulator and Time Lord strategist, Cardinal Ollistra receives shock news of the Doctor's death. Meanwhile, on the planet Keska, a parochial war has returned to plague a peaceful civilisation after decades of tranquillity. But how can such a war have any connection with the great Time War which, at any one moment in the whole of eternity, could threaten to tear the universe apart? If only the Doctor were still alive. 1.2 THE THOUSAND WORLDS. With the high-ranking Time Lord Seratrix behind enemy lines, the War Doctor finds himself assigned to a rescue mission. But any room for manoeuvre is severely restricted by an area of space known as the Null Zone. Times have changed on Keska, and a countdown to destruction is beginning. But who are the Taalyens and what is their part in the great and terrifying Dalek plan? 1.3 THE HEART OF THE BATTLE. Trapped in a citadel swarming with Daleks, the Time Lord rescue force must find a way to overcome insurmountable odds. With the Daleks apparently planning to rule the Null Zone, perhaps their thirst for universal conquest and victory has been quenched...The War Doctor doesn't believe so - but how can he prove it without destroying any chance of peace? As the countdown to the destruction of Keska proceeds, a deadly choice must be made...A choice that will define this Doctor, and perhaps forever cast him in the role of 'monster'. Big Finish present John Hurt as The War Doctor, a character created for, and central to, Doctor Who's 50th Anniversary Special The Day of the Doctor, shown on TV and in cinemas in 2013. This release also stars two of cult television's leading women: Jacqueline Pearce known for her role as Servalan in Blake's 7, and Carolyn Seymour from Terry Nation's 1970s BBC hit Survivors. Only The Monstrous was written and directed by Nicholas Briggs - voice-artist for the Daleks and other terrifying monsters from the televised version of Doctor Who! CAST: John Hurt (The War Doctor), Jacqueline Pearce (Cardinal Ollistra), Lucy Briggs-Owen (The Nursemaid), Carolyn Seymour (The Slave). Beth Chalmers (Veklin), Alex Wyndham (Seratrix), Kieran Hodgson (Bennus), Barnaby Edwards (Arverton), Mark McDonnell (Traanus) John Banks (Garv) and Nicholas Briggs as The Daleks.

An essential survey for all interested in the pottery of the London area, this study charts the development, peak and decline of two ceramic traditions: the shelly wares of c 1140-1220, mainly city-based but reaching Scotland and across the North Sea to Norway, and the greywares of c 1170-1350, widely used in the city and even more so in its hinterland. In addition to fabric analyses, form typologies, a gazetteer of find spots and scientific data, the study includes a summary of greyware production centres, and considers function, use, marketing of medieval pottery and the chronology of selected consumer sites in London and its region.

Emily shifted deeper into the hay, ignoring Dede's call. She had no intention of going back to the house to let Dede punish her. She'd rather stay in the hayloft all day.
In the sequel to Discovering Emily, Emily Carr is determined to become an artist. But her parents have died, and she and her siblings are ruled by the iron-willed eldest, Dede. Dede is more concerned with decorum than with ridiculous dreams and is not averse to punishing Emily severely. In the face of such resistance, and in the conservative climate of nineteenth-century Victoria, Emily must find a way to make her dream come true.
When Jacqueline Pearce was a child, her grandmother lived right around the corner from Emily Carr's house. Jacqueline used to wish that she had a pair of magic glasses that would show her what Victoria was like when Emily Carr was young. Now she has created a pair of books that provide child readers with more than a glimpse. Jacqueline is the author of two other Orca Young Readers, Discovering Emily and The Reunion.
Emily's Dream is the second of two books in a series.
Book one is Discovering Emily.
