Let's end this crammed Fleamarket Friday as we started, with another Lethbridge-Stewart announcement from Candy Jar Books.
Unveiled earlier today, to celebrate 50 years of the Brigadier, Lineage is a limited edition, hardback, collection of six brand-new stories involving the Lethbridge-Stewart family from the 17th Century right up to the present day (including three adventures featuring the Brig himself).
The Lethbridge-Stewart name carries with it stories of integrity, honour and courage. But was it always so?Candy Jar's Head of Publishing, Shaun Russell said:
From its earliest origins with the Clan Stewart in Scotland, and the Lethbridges in Devon, England, the name has a storied past. Historical figures, history makers, military heroes…
Lethbridge-Stewart: Lineage features the writing talents of Andrew Allen, Harry Draper, Gareth Madgwick, Wink Taylor, Chris Lynch, David A McIntee and Andy Frankham-Allen, with stories taking place in the 1600's, 1800's, 1940's, 1970's, and 2010's exploring the ancestors and descendants of Alistair Gordon Lethbridge-Stewart.
"We’ve been pondering doing a collection like this for some time, but it never seemed to be the right time. But with the impending 50th anniversary of the first appearance of the Brig in Doctor Who, combined with the recent appearance of the Brigadier’s grandfather in Twice Upon a Time, and the positive response that garnered, it seemed that the time was, finally, now."Lethbridge-Stewart: Lineage can be pre-ordered direct from Candy Jar here or from the Lethbridge-Stewart site here, which also has more background information about the illustrious family's history and the Brig's adventures (across many media).
